Home Made Facial Mask

Have some extra cocoa or chocolate bars laying around? Then you have the main ingredient for a facial mask! Chocolate is full of anioxidants which help prevent and repair skin cell damage. A chocolate facial can leave your face feeling soft and looking younger (and is yummy to smell while on your skin!)

To make this facial:

Melt a few squares of dark chocolate in a saucepan. Remove from heat and let cool until the chocolate is warm (not hot!) to the touch. Smooth on face and relax for about 20 minutes. Rinse and enjoy the soft glowing skin you see in the mirror.

You can add other ingredients to this basic facial as well, such as oatmeal (great for exfoliating the skin) and honey( for cleansing and opening clogged pores.) Also, you can use cocoa instead of chocolate bars-- just mix the cocoa with honey and oatmeal in a blender. Smooth the mixture on your face and rinse after 20 minutes.

Please be sure to check for any allergic reactions before applying any facial masks. Simply test the mixture on a small area of your leg or arm. If you do have any adverse reaction while mixture is on your face, rinse immediately.

Alright, when I first read this post I did not believe it. Chocolate facial mask? I am going to try it despite being pretty skeptical. I figure worse case scenario I smell sweet for a Cheesy joke. I always wondered how people figure these things out, so how do you figure these things out? Reminds me of the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the dad and his Windex. I have not tried that one out, but as you can tell, my curiosity is still there!

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…
