Links I Love: Friday, October 16

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

It is getting to be that time of year again. I want to try this hot cider recipe asap.

A fun interview with Colin Wright on how he travels the world and an article from his blog, Exile Lifestyle about Stuff.

I am not much of a beauty guru but if there is something that can make my morning routine easier I appreciate it! Currently loving dry shampoo and coconut oil. 

Great infographic on a backpackers needs!

I love Farnoosh and have talked about her podcast before. I love these financial tips she gives. Relevant and not the same old advice.

Hope these give you some food for thought this weekend!

Coconut Oil: Nectar of the gods

Growing up, anything I liked a lot I would refer to as nectar of the gods.  I think coconut oil is my new nectar. It is editable and can be used as a beauty product.

IS A HABIT

If you have been reading the blog for awhile you know that I love Apple Cider Vinegar!My new love find is the one and only Coconut Oil.  Coconut Oil is truly a one stop shop.

It can be used in SO many ways. I have been using it day and night as moisturizer for my face. In the day, I also add an SPF to protect my skin but at night I add it straight on after I wash my face.

One of the biggest things I love about C.O. is that it takes my waterproof eye make up off way better than any eye make up remover I have ever had.

I use it occasionally as a deep conditioner but can not use it daily because my fine hair can not handle all the moisture.

I like using it when I am cooking instead of oil or butter.  I have been alerted that some do not like the taste of cooking with it, so I suggest trying it with an open mind!

Honestly though, this small list I have provided is only a fraction of all the uses for coconut oil. Check out Wellness Mama she has the ultimate list of coconut oil uses! I am totally going to have to try a few that I didn’t know about!!
