I really wish I could tell you that I love my natural hair color. I believe (I've been dying it for a while!) that it is a strawberry blonde and I used to get compliments on it all the time. The past five years I have been dying it just about every color I can think of, black, dark brown, red, bright red, and even brighter red. I wanted a light blonde for summer. Not platinum blonde but a pretty blonde with a smidgen of a golden color. Now my hair pulls yellow tones like CrAzY! So I knew if I went blonde I would need to follow up with a toner to cut that yellow shit out! I'm going to try out Wella's Color Charm T18 Toner, Lightest Ash Blonde... Let's see what happens!

Honey, Cinnamon, and Sugar Face Scrub

3 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp sugar

Mix ingredients together. Apply mixture to face and gently massage for 1-2 minutes, leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

*Honey, especially raw honey has many anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It is also packed with antioxidants.

Cinnamon brings blood and nutrients to the surface of skin and helps plump skin which makes fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable. It is also drying to skin, which would be a good choice for people with oily skin.
Cinnamon can help rid your face or back of acne by both drying out the skin and, again, bringing blood and oxygen to the skin surface. By drying out the skin and bringing both blood and oxygen to the skin's surface, cinnamon makes a good acne fighter.

Sugar is makes an excellent exfoliate, cleanser, and moisturizer. It removes dead skin cells revealing healthy skin underneath.

Get Fit!

  1. Start your day with breakfast.
    Breakfast fills your "empty tank"
    to get you going after a long night without food. And it can help you do better  in school. Easy to prepare breakfasts include cold cereal with fruit and
    low-fat  milk, whole-wheat toast with peanut butter, yogurt with fruit,
    whole-grain  waffles or even last night's pizza!


  2. Get Moving!
    It's easy to fit physical activities into your daily routine. Walk, bike or jog to see friends. Take a 10-minute activity break every  hour while you read, do homework or watch TV. Climb stairs instead of
    taking an  escalator or elevator. Try to do these things for a total of 30
    minutes every  day.


  3. Snack smart.
    Snacks are a great way to refuel. Choose snacks from
    different food groups - a glass of low-fat milk and a few graham crackers, an
    apple or celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins, or some dry cereal. If
    you eat smart at other meals, cookies, chips and candy are OK for occasional
    snacking.


  4. Work up a sweat.
    Vigorous work-outs - when you're breathing hard
     and sweating - help your heart pump better, give you more energy and help you
     look and feel best. Start with a warm-up that stretches your muscles. Include
    20  minutes of aerobic activity, such as running, jogging, or dancing. Follow-up
    with activities that help make you stronger such as push-ups or lifting
    weights.  Then cool-down with more stretching and deep breathing.


  5. Balance your food choices - don't eat too much of any one
      thing.

    You don't have to give up foods like hamburgers, french fries and
 ice cream to eat healthy. You just have to be smart about how often and how
much  of them you eat. Your body needs nutrients like protein, carbohydrates,
fat and  many different vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C and A, iron and
calcium  from a variety of foods. Balancing food choices from the Food Guide
Pyramid and  checking out the Nutrition Facts Panel on food labels will help you
get all  these nutrients.
