Oil Pulling

 
 
Recently I came across a new trend called oil pulling. It's a simple regimen that you can add to your daily morning routine that will improve your health in many ways. It is quite simple. In the morning, on an empty stomach, swish coconut oil around in your mouth for about 15-20 minutes (apparently if your mouth starts to hurt you are swishing too hard). Just swirl it around and spit it out after those few minutes are up (do not swallow!). What you are spitting out are toxins that are coursing through your blood stream, and by removing them it will lead to a healthier you!
They say that oil pulling is probably most helpful for the gums, because it prevents the growth of strep bacteria. Nutritionist and doctors believe that there are beauty benefits to oil swishing as well.
Here are three main benefits that I found while researching this new trend.
 
Teeth Whitener. Coconut oil contains natural antibiotic and anti-viral properties that brighten yellowed and stained teeth and helps cleanse your mouth. It improves gum health and also gets rid of bad breath.
 
Acne Reducer. Oil pulling detoxifies the body and  helps eliminate toxins resulting in less blemishes and helps with eliminating rashes and/or skin issues.
 
It Can Lead To A Healthy Glow. Oil pulling works by removing toxins and bacteria that leak into your bloodstream These toxins effect your entire body, so by removing them the result is glowing healthy skin. It basically helps you glow, from the inside out!
 
Have you tried oil pulling before? Do you think that this is something you will add to your daily routine?

We are still here and we hopee you don't go anywhere. 
We will be here tomorrow and can't wait to catch up with all of you.
Although we may not have a post every single day as usual for the next week or two, we plan to be back to our regularly scheduled program after those two weeks.
 See you tomorrow, bright and early.

Crock Pot Chili

One thing that I love about fall is being able to break out the crock pot and make some delicious stews, soups, and chili. Here is a super easy chili recipe that is perfect for those cold fall nights. Just prep it the day before and start cookin in the morning so that when you get home from work you have a yummy hot meal waiting for you.
 
 
What You Need:
 
(1 lb) ground beef
2 chopped onions 
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 Tbsp tomato puree
2-3 Tbsp. chili powder (depending on how spicy you want it)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
2 (15 oz.) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
¼ cup water
 
What You Do:
Saute onions in a skillet until soft and translucent.
Next add your ground beef and allow it to brown. Drain once all your meat is brown and no longer pink.
Mix all ingredients except the cornstarch and the water into your crock pot.
Cover your mixture and cook it on low heat for about 6-7 hours. Turn heat up and mix in your cornstarch and water until smooth and add it to the chili mixture.
Uncover your crock pot and cook for about 15 minutes longer until it begins to thicken.
Top with cheese and/or sour cream.
 
 
Are you a chili fan?

Budget Friendly Style - Camo

 
 
Oh camo, how I loveth thee!
Camo is another one of my favorite patterns that are so versitile.
It is a great option to dress up or dress down.
The key to camo is that you just want a touch of it.
Whether it is a camo pant that you are wearing or a camo scarf, you want the rest of your outfit to be neutral for the most part so you can pull of a chic and sofisticated look, without looking like you are playing dress up!
 
Here are a few budget friendly camo items that you can check out to replicate any outfit similar to those above.
 
Camo Hoodie $22.90
Camo Jacket $69.90 $39.99
Camo Scarf $11.99
Camo Flats BOGO $12.99
 
Are you a camo fan?! What item are you looking to add to your closet?

The Sak Rocks

 
 
Recently I got to review a tote bag from The Sak.
Is it to early in this relationship to say that I love them? Not only do I absolutely adore all the product styles that they carry, but all of their products are great quality and well made.
They are known as the "house of texture" with their woven and leather goods, making each piece stand out in a crowd of plain Jane purses and clutches.
 
Above are 5 of my favorite rockin bag picks for fall this year. Check them out for yourself!
 
 
Since I am such a jewelry hoarder as well, here is a little taste of the awesome and unique jewelry pieces that they have on sale right now as we speak. I had to grab the bangles asap before they sold out...I love 'em!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Check out The Sak and let us know which products are your favorite!

You WILL NOT be disappointed. This mother is absolutely bat sh!t crazy and that is that!
She apparently brought in cookies shaped as women's whohas as a treat for her child's class and wanted the teacher to teach them about it...2nd grade class. Read it here. The texts that the mother sends to the teacher after she refused to serve the cookies proves her craziness further!
