Be Gone Cellulite! Series – Coffee Scrub

September 12th, 2012|11 Comments

Cellulite sucks. No one wants that puckered uneven skin. Whether you are a fluffy girl or a skinny minnie, its estimated that 80 to 95% of women have cellulite. (And if you are part of that 5 to 20% that don’t, well then you have good genes and you are lucky.) But what is cellulite? According to a recent article from FitSugar, it doesn’t exist. Cellulite is just deposits of fat under the skin. The term ‘cellulite’ is French and was first used as a medical term to describe that pesky fat about 150 years ago. And the worst part about cellulite is that its near impossible to get rid of completely. That’s right! Those creams and lotions and one stop shop cures won’t work. Why? They will not reach through three layers of skin to affect the fat build ups. For me, that’s frustrating but if there are ways for me to diminish those rotten bumps, then I’ll do it. It all started when I was 13. I had a growth spurt, spent most of my summer playing the Sims and that was that: cellulite. Since then, I have developed more on my legs and buttocks thanks to pregnancy and not eating/exercising as much as I should have while pregnant. Gaining 45 lbs ain’t without its consequences. Now, with my second pregnancy, I am determined to eat well and keep active but the damage has been done. And living in Hawaii doesn’t help. Shorts, skirts, swimsuits… Clothes aren’t a big staple. So what to do… What to do… Well, while a good amount of cellulite can be diminished by working out and developing muscle tone, there are a few ways to smooth out those dimples and you can do it naturally! No crazy over the counter creams with ingredients you can’t pronounce, no vacuum suction cups or whatever silly fade is popular these days. And I am gonna tell you show you how. (Spoiler alert: It’s been working!!) As mentioned above, the best way to combat cellulite is eating healthy (to keep fat off your body) and toning your muscles with regular exercise, weights and cardio; check out the FitSugar article for tips on what works best. However, today I am going to share with you an all natural body scrub that has helped reduce my uneven cellulite stricten skin monumentally! And yes, my cellulite really is less noticeable! Just ask my husband. So what is it? Dr. Oz’s Cellulite Coffee Sugar Scrub. I’m not one for daytime TV; I am usually working or toddler wrangling, but I came across this scrub recipe online and I am excited to say that it has helped reduce the appearance of the cellulite on my thighs. But how? […]

BftE and Sugarpill Sweet Sassafras Tutorial

September 11th, 2012|15 Comments

Because I could not wait to play with BftE Sassafras, I put together this fun Fall look. I wish I’d had Sugarpill Junebug (can’t believe I don’t own it!) but I liked the effect of layering Magpie on top of Sassafras. […]
