Green Smoothies and Face Packs?

There have been quite a few changes going on around here… I am not the greatest one for change, but I must admit these have been great changes! We have been starting to slowly introduce more raw food into our diet and it really is tasty:) Jenna has taken an interest in raw food preparation and has been helping me make all sorts of yummy dishes, on Sunday we tried raw spaghetti and a white sauce, I had no idea it would taste SO good! Every morning we make a smoothie and we are always coming up with different recipes to enjoy:)  Here is one below that we have been making:

1 Pineapple
2 Pears
1 Apple
1 Orange (peeled)
4 Seedless dates (to sweeten)
1 Handful of Pak Choi
Cut up your fruit and blend it all together and if it is too thick, just add a little water:) Enjoy
A few posts back I asked asked if anyone could share raw food links and some amazing links were shared, their blogs are also wonderful too:

The other day when Richard took Erin to baseball, Jen and I had some mama daughter time together:) We decided to make a face pack. It was wonderful and gooey and once we washed it off, our skin felt amazing! Life is so incredibly hectic most of the time, it is really important to pamper yourself when you can, to plan time for yourself, and to honour who you are… So face packs it was for us!

Here is what we did:

1 Avo
2 Tablespoons of honey
4 drops of Jojoba Oil

Mix it all together and when it is lovely and smooth, rub it all over your face. Sit and relax for about 20 minutes to half and hour and then wash off with warm water. Your skin will feel amazing!

A few people have asked me to share how I added a 3rd column to my blog, it was really easy, Blogger has an editing website called Blogger In Draft, where you can edit your blog and make all the changes you want without affecting your current blog:) Once you have made all the changes you want, you can apply them to your blog, just make sure you save a copy of the template you are using at the moment, just in case you want to revert back to it:)
Here is the link, it really is wonderful.
Here is a peek at a new pattern I will be sharing soon: Sunner Ladybug:)
I have also been featured over at the Rhythm of the Home Blog, for How to Make a Sun Tea, pop over and have a look see:)
Happy Tuesday to all,

    LOVE that ladybug! Deliciously round and fat! Your face mask sounds like something I’d like to spread on toast! Lovely alternative to all the chemicals in mainstream “beauty” products…

    Okay, am I the only one who wants to dip tortilla chips in to that mask and snack on it? :o) (I love guacamole, but haven’t tried it with honey and jojoba …) Cute little lady bug!

    Is there any little critter you cannot create through your knitting?

    Glad to see smoothie ideas without banana, I seem to have a strange reaction them, though I’ve never heard of a banana allergy, I’m just weird I guess.

    And thanks for that blogger link, something I really really needed!

    Happy day to you Linda!

    Sound like a spa day or a green day over there in South Africa. Is everyone ready for the world cup? I love this little lady bug. How very sweet. I hope all is well with you and yours.

    Yum and that ladybug is so darn cute! I have the three column too, but when I logged in to blogger tonight I saw they have some new flashy layouts available, including the three column! And after all that hacking and messing around with html coding!
