Put the Lime in the Coconut

Standard

Happy Tuesday, Lovers! Valentine’s Day is Friday (as if you didn’t know) and if you’re still looking for the perfect gift, we have got the answer to all your prayers (melodrama is my second language).  I don’t know about you, but with all this ridiculously cold weather and endless snowfall, my skin has been super dry – I probably need to bathe in Aquaphor (TMI?) More to my point, we have come up with an incredibly moisturizing, lovely smelling, inexpensive and did we mention handcrafted, V-Day present for that sweetheart on your list for the record, mine was the only name on my list. hey, don’t judge).

Introducing a limey-coconuty concoction that will knock his/her/your socks off…. The ultimate Sugar Scrub!

Adding the sugar, Vitamin E Oil and about 15-20 drops of Lime Essential Oil, mix all the ingredients thoroughly.

*if you find the consistency too liquid-y (is that a word?), stir in more sugar- adding gradually.

Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub


Passion Mimosa

Standard

As you have probably gathered, this is not a Mai Tai.  However, it is delicious, incredibly refreshing and super easy to make.  We thought this would be a great addition to your Sunday brunch or Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed (hint, hint)!

What you’ll need:

  • Champagne (the cornerstone of a Mimosa)
  • Passion Fruit juice
  • Champagne glass
  • Bottle Opener
  • I added the last two just to be obnoxious. Mission: accomplished.

Pour one part champagne and one part Passion fruit juice (mix if you so desire) and consume. Told ya, E-Z!

Cheers, dudes!
