Give Me Some Suga’!

Well, it’s almost memorial day which means it’s alnost time for your skin to be radiant for those outdoor festivities!  I’ve been needing a good exfoliant and moisturizer and found this recipe for lemon sugar scrub.  It’s super simple and smells great!
ingredients:
21/2 cups sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
lots and lots of lemons zest
{I added about 1/2 tsp of citrus essential oil to perk up the scent but it’s not necessary}
…and that’s all!  It’s as simple as that!
On a different note, I wanted to recommend a book series that I’ve been read…and LOVING!

Here is a book review/summary from seattle pi.

“The Hunger Games, written by Suzanne Collins, is fiction in the young adult genre, which is not my age group, but I found myself unable to put it down. Its combination of nerve-racking tension, thrilling action, and engaging love story kept me up until the wee hours. I was surprised at how completely engrossing the plot was. Like Brave New World, this story is set in a future where the government oppresses its people, but the book also borrows ideas from the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.
When the book opens, North America as we know it has been destroyed and is now divided into 12 districts, ruled by an oppressive government located at the Capitol. Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl from District 12, takes her younger sister’s place as one of 24 “tributes” selected every year to participate in the Hunger Games at the Capitol.
The Games pit children from ages 12 to 18 against each other in a fight to the death in a giant, treacherous arena. Everything is televised and highly publicized all over the country. Katniss must not only survive the Games, but deal with a romance between her and another tribute from District 12, all the while deciding if she is willing to kill strangers her own age as a pawn of an oppressive government.”
So good!  I promise!
 
And finally, I wanted to share a friend’s website with you.  Her name is Jennifer Bennett and she is a life purpose coach. She works with people of all ages to help them determine what God’s purpose and calling is in their life. 
 
She’s has been a collegue of mine in teaching for the past 5 years and highly enc
ouraged me to start my blog {over a year ago!}She is moving out of the school system to grow her coaching business next year.

Happy Thursday!
