Setting Goals To Achieve Success

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Its that time of year again. The end. Yup, 2016 is over.

Did you accomplish everything that you set out to do last year at this time?

I did for the first time that I can remember. I crossed off two huge goals this year. I only set two goals, well three if you include loosing the extra baby weight but honestly that has been on the list for 5 years so I am only counting new ones.

Why is it so hard to stick to your goals especially after we're so excited about creating them. Maybe it is not because we are lazy, or that we loose interest. I think the real reason is that we set goals without systems to help us accomplish these goals. Then with in a week we feel lost and unmotivated. We set ourselves up for failure.

Easy Homemade Coconut Milk All Over Cleanser

Happy Hump Day.
I hope you all had an amazing holiday.

Today I thought that I would share with you a post from my previous blog. This was one of the first post that I wrote and when I deactivated that blog a few months ago it had over 5,500 views. I decided since so many people were interested in it that I should share it again here.

It is completely unedited from the first time that I wrote it almost 5 years ago. I hope you enjoy. This is a great skin hydrating formula that you will love during these cold months. Since its main ingredient is coconut milk it makes it feel a little tropical. You feel like you've been taken away to a warm sunny island even if it's below freezing outside. Please feel free to leave comments below with your favorite homemade recipes for skin, body and hair care recipes.

Hi everyone for my first how to I am going to give you my recipe for a face and body wash using coconut milk.  I also used this on my 14 month old son as a hair and body wash since he has very sensitive skin. I do not like it on my hair although the recipe is an altered version of a "no poo" shampoo but I have been using this amazing wash on my face (with 2 other homemade products) for the last 2 months and my adult acne is gone.  It cost less that $2 to make a 2 week batch. I don't keep it longer since it has coconut milk but if you keep it in the fridge it may last longer.  It is super simple to make, here is what you need.

2 cup measuring cup
empty body wash or shampoo container

1cup coconut milk or cream (for a rich creamy wash use coconut cream from a can)
1/3 cup castile soap (any sent you like will do I prefer the lavender)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1tablespoon olive oil

Put all of your ingredients into your measuring cup and stir pour into empty bottle and give a good shake.  That's it you are all done making your luxuriously hydrating wash.  Every time you use your wash remember to shake the bottle since the oils will separate and concentrate at the bottom.
