WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO, 3/4

Mermaids on the set of Peter Pan, 1924//
mermaids on the set of peter pan, 1924. found HERE.
DOING
01. holy shit, i love DUOLINGO. i meant to show it to my girlfriend the other night and we ended up learning italian for three hours...
02. tons of thrifting for my spring wardrobe and the LOST & FOUND VINTAGE SHOP.
03. bracing myself because MARS IS IN RETROGRADE. thanks to gala darling for always reminding me of these things.
04. reading THE CORRECTIONS. tiny bits at a time, but i'm really enjoying it.

CRAVING
01. these RAW ALMOND SPREAD recipes for flatbreads and wraps.
02. key lime pie, or any dessert with a splash of citrus fruit. i think i'll try my hand at THESE PRETTY BARS very soon.
03. salty snacks (always). ROASTED BUFFALO CHICKPEAS would definitely cure this.

WANTING
01. to get my hands on the NEW PHOTOSHOP ACTIONS available in the A BEAUTIFUL MESS SHOP. i've never had actions to use, and it would make things much easier (and much prettier)!
02. 1960s rainboots like THESE. my god, they're glorious.
03. to try AUDIO BOOKS, maybe while tidying up my apartment and such? starting a free trial today.

thanks for hanging out.

DIY SPA: GRAPEFRUIT MASK AND MORE

i'm a fool for whipping up diy spa concotions in my kitchen, especially when they involve yummy smelling fruits which are loaded with things that make my skin sparkle. grapefruit is one of my favorites to use. it's smell is energy boosting, and it's packed with antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins A and C. the cherry on top is that its acids provide gentle exfoliation for sloughing off dull dead skin cells. for these reasons i came up with this mask, which is my weekly go-to when i feel like pampering this face.



to make, i whisk the freshly squeezed juice of 1/4-1/2 a grapefruit with one egg white. it will make way too much for one pretty face, but whatever. i like to apply it in a thin layer using a small paint brush (try it, it feels totally awesome), but you could also dunk a cotton ball in the mask and apply it that way. if i have the time, i like to apply a layer once every five minutes or so until i'm satisfied, and i gently remove it with a super warm wash cloth to open my pores for the final step--moisturizing.



wondering what to do with the egg yolk and leftover grapefruit? i reserve my egg yolk to use in the shower as a conditioning mask, as it contains proteins and vitamins to strengthen and moisturize hair. as for the grapefruit, i preheat my oven to 350 and pop it in for about thirty minutes. it makes a delicious snack, especially when drizzled with agave nectar.

thanks for hanging out, and make sure to carve some time to try this one for yourself.
