Hellloooo! I am so excited to be sharing this DIY with you guys!! I have been doing this the entire summer and have fallen in love with it! It is such a great scrub and the best thing is you can find all of the ingredients at home! Read through the entire post for all of the steps and how great coffee is for your skin {hint: wayy more benefits then ya think!}

So first things first: ingredients. You will need an oil; I have used both olive oil and coconut oil. I have to say coconut oil is way better and holds more of a solid form! You will need coffee grounds, I chose to use a used K-Cup, it’s like recycling!! And last but not least you will need some sugar, I chose just to use white sugar. I’m sure brown sugar works fine as well, although it tends to be bigger than regular white sugar, so it may be abrasive.

I will be honest, I have no idea about the measurements; I just kind of wing it haha! Do what you feel is best. In the end, less is safer and you can always add more in the end!

The Coconut Oil, my mom bought this for cooking purposes! I will link a similar one here.

Your basic white sugar.

Some super yummy {and strong!!} coffee grounds.

Starbucks K-Cups, my family’s Keurig {larger version}, my dorm Keruig, {smaller version}

Get a cute lil bowl and add the sugar. If you decide to use a K-Cup, you’ll have to remove the top foil and scrape the coffee grounds out. Add the grounds to the bowl!

Add in the coconut oil and mix, mix, mix! If it looks like dirt, you’re good!

Scoop some up and rub it between your hands for a test. After you think you’ve rubbed your hands enough, rinse and dry. You are left with the SOFTEST hands!! I do have to say that coconut oil has left my hands softer and more moisturized then when I mixed in olive oil.

HOW I USE IT:

I love to shave my legs first and then exfoliate with this scrub after. It leaves my legs soft, shiny and moisturized. I don’t even have to worry about putting on lotion after I shave! This is great for all over your body too! And it is totally natural.

SKIN BENEFITS:

Coffee has several different benefits for your skin and I wanted to share some of them with you!

Apparently the scent of coffee acts as a calming agent and is an anti-depressant as well, which be perfect in a warm shower or bath!

Coffee acts as a natural antioxidant and helps fight premature aging, cancer and heart disease. According to India Times, there is a study that shows coffee bean extracts can be responsible for preserving skin cell energy.

This coffee scrub in particular exfoliates, which helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and increases blood flow as well! Scrubs remove dead skin and reveal new skin cells, leaving you with glowing skin. Best part is, you can make this one at home! And coconut oil allows for soft moisturized skin!!

As for skin texture, it constricts blood vessels, making the skin tighter and firmer. Coffee helps to regulate skin re-growth, which increases collagen.

I hope you enjoyed all of the information and the DIY I threw at you today!! Have a wonderful day. xoxo

Happy Wednesday everyone! And happy National Wear Your Lilly Day. I think this is such a cute lil day to break out your Lilly P pieces to wear on the first day of summer!

I included two looks because I just couldn’t choose! The skort I’ve had for about two years now and the shorts I got last summer! I never know what to wear with these crazy prints, so I always opt for white.

I’m super excited because I got a $50 off $100 Lilly coupon in the mail yesterday, so I’ll definitely be getting some more goodies this summer!

Also I love, love, love Lilly Planners, and the new ones are out!! I decided to try a different planner this year but will most def be getting a  Lilly notebook, because you can’t beat the cute prints!

As always thanks for reading!

I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for the weather to warm up! I wanted to compile a few of my favorite trends and pieces for spring. These are some of my personal faves as well as things I have seen in stores and online.

I’m dying over lace, I love how girly it is and how it can really add something to an item. Along with lace, I’m loving off-the-shoulder tops and dresses as well. #1 is the perfect combo of lace and off-the-shoulder, I’m dying over this top. Another item I’m loving are little, spring colored bags. #3, #6 and #10 are some of the bags I’m looking at for the warmer weather. Perfect for on the go and they both are super easy with their crossbody strap. Sunnies are always a given! I always want to splurge on a pair but I usually end up breaking one each year 🙁 .

I’m also really a fan of the espadrilles wedge trend. I like this Steve Madden pair because they aren’t too bulky on the bottom. They’re also a perfect dupe for the Cholé ones! This pink leather skirt is soo cute too!! I want it so badly!

Make sure you follow my Spring + Summer Inspo. board on Pinterest! It’s linked below. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend! Sorry for the late post!!
