Well as you can see this isn't a beauty post. Let be real I lead a normal life with a family and baking is one of my passions. I will be sharing more lifestyle posts with you my lovely readers while I make a transition into a more lifestyle based blog. 

I've never made Blondies before until recently. I heard alot about how delicious they were but since I am more of a cookie type person I didn't care much for it. I added alot more peanut butter cups then required just for the extra flavour. They turned out quite good given the fact the main binder in this recipe rather than using flour it called for Chick Peas.... crazy right!

Check out the shopping list below so you can enjoy this deliciousness!

 Banana Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

Shopping List:

2 ripe bananas

A few months ago I featured a post on Jealous Body a Canadian Brand out of Vancouver. Their products are made with natural products that are beneficial to the skin. Today's post features one of their new scrubs, along with others that provide the skin with nutrients to improve the overall feel and look.

There are 4 new additions to the body scrub line which again, all contain natural products that are targeted towards 4 colour coded skin types. 

Dry to Normal- Dark Pink: Soothes irritated skin and improves complexion
Sensitive to Normal- Teal : Heals scars and hydrates skin
Dry/Mature Skin- Orange : Soothes irritated skin and improves complexion
Oily Skin- Purple : Tones skin to balance PH to prevent breakouts and repair skin
All skin types- Light Pink : Repairs all skin concerns

I can't stress enough how much I enjoy using scrubs, I think they are essential in body care to get rid of dead skin for a more soft feel. I especially love the fact that they are made with natural products that I know are great for the care of my skin and after each use I can feel a significant difference in the way I look and my skin feels. 

To use I normally take about 2 -4 TBSP depending on where I am using the scrub. Its important to use circular motions in order to buff away dead skin. There are many uses for these scrubs, I also like to use them when I am doing my at-home pedicures a must try! I guarantee you will love!

L'Occitane Shea Honey Collection

If you don't know what World Sight Day is, allow me to shed some beautiful light. World sight day is the second Thursday in October every year. It is an important advocacy day for the Community, for awareness around the prevention and treatment of Blindness. World Sight Day is a time to engage with others on the importance of proper eye care. By urging those around us to focus more on the significance of proper eye exams, especially for those in need who cannot afford to maintain yearly eye exams.
Now keep in mind World Sight Day doesn't just advocate for eye exams but also for rehabilitation, and irreversible loss of vision.
Studies show that there is an estimated seven million individuals that become visually impaired and that more than half  (80%) of cases are avoidable.

L'Occitane created a limited edition collection in honor  of World Sight Day. The Gem of this collection is the Solidarity Soap which not only smells wonderful, but for every soap purchased an eye exam or pair of glasses is provided for someone in need in the rural areas of Burkina Faso.

L'Occitane Solidarity Soap
With the launch of this collection it brings together two of L'Occitane's strongest commitments- the support of the visually impaired as well as the support of entrepreneurship of Women in Burkina Faso. With that being said L'Occitane works with 17,000 Women in the country to produce the Shea Butter that is found in many of their Body care items today and these women are paid 3.5 the market price for their product and 80% up front to provide income throughout the year.

FUN FACT:  L'Occitane is the first brand to include brail on their packaging.

I love the smell of this collection the scent of the Shea Butter and Honey is very soft and the hand cream like many of the other L'Occitane creams is very moisturizing on the skin. Now that the weather is cooling down and my skin gets a little drier the Ultra soft body cream is perfect to add to my body care routine to restore my skins moisture.

This collection will be launching on October 6th in store and online
