Spa Day and It's Ok Thursday

Well we made it to Thursday!  Finally!  Does anyone else feel like this week is dragging along at a snail like pace?
Just one little thing I want to share with you all before I jump into my second It's Ok Thursday post!

My co-worker sent me this great recipe for a Homemade Citrus Scrub, and I wanted to share it with you all.  Because who doesn't want to use a scrub that smells as refreshing as citrus.  Perfect to brighten up a dreary winter day!

What you will need:
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Sea Salt
1-2 Slices of Lemon
1-2 slices of Orange

How you make it;
1. Put the oil and salt in a bowl or blender
2. Chop up the orange and lemon slice and put them in the bowl or blender as well. (If using a bowl chop as finally as you can)!
3-Blend everything together and put in a container!  And that's it!
So simple!

Would make a great homemade gift if put in cute little jars like this...

Here are some other great homemade scrubs that are floating about in the blog world!
Now I am ready for a Spa Day!

Its Ok Thursdays

Its Ok That...
...I wish I could re-wear my outfit from yesterday with my new boots!
The boots I ordered about a week ago!

...I wish the snow we are getting now in Minnesota would have come about 3 weeks ago!  Christmas just wasn't the same since there was no snow!
...I wore about a million layers into work today!  It is cold outside!
...I may have looked like this because of the said layers!
Ok maybe not that bad!
Well thats all I have for you today folks, but I want to leave you with this!  Because we could all use a little chuckle to get us through the day!


  1. Those scrubs look so easy to make, I will have to try it. I love those boots!! We have not had any snow yet where I am, I don't think I could live up north but I guess you get used to it. xoxo

  2. My family is in Michigan and when I went home for Christmas there wasn't any snow and it was too weird! Cute boots by the way.

    Also the scrub recipes are great. I can't wait to try them sometime!

  3. Those scrubs sound awesome! We had one snowstorm back on Halloween and it's been really mild in NYC since but the cold weather is coming our way. That last pic totally had me LOL. Cheers and have a great day!

    And I love the scrub idea, it's so good to do when you're pregnant especially since you can't use glycolic acid and all. And the jars are just too cute. did you make those?
