Peanut buttery, chocolate gooey mess that is “healthy” but not when I add a huge amount of chocolate chips! These are made with oats instead of flour and bananas. I’ve made two batches already and I have no self-control around them, basically tastes like a chocolate chip peanut butter cookie! All the credit goes to the amazing Chelsea at Chelsea’s Messy Apron! This is her photo as well. You’re probably better off not making these because you will never forget them, but c’mon how can you not?! Get the recipe here!
Funny animals. I miss having animals around! My dog Gryphon lives with my mom so I don’t see him as much, too bad my apartment doesn’t allow any pets:(
Squats! I have always liked squats, maybe because I spend 5 days a week sitting in a chair and I like to feel the burn of those muscles! I’m trying to do more in my gym routine because I don’t want and shouldn’t just run. The other day I think I felt a shin splint coming on, I’ve never had one so I’m not sure but I need to add some resistance training in for sure!
The oil cleansing method! I tried it once before but was too impatient (as usual!) so when I gave it another go, I did more research and have been doing it for about a month now. The basic idea is that, contrary to what most people think, not all oils are bad! And our skin is often dehydrated by all the chemical-laden cleansers and moisturizers we use. I would say I have combo skin (dry some places, oily others) so I was curious to see what would happen. Now the chart below says to use castor oil as a base but honestly, I just use one oil. Castor oil actually has a comedogenic rating of 1, which is still very low and should be fine with most everyone’s skin but I just was lazy and decided not to use it. I have tried evening primrose oil and then kukui nut oil. Kukui nut oil really made a difference for my skin, it’s softer, more balanced and seems to be healing any blemishes fast. My skin feels so good since starter this regime! I still use Cerave moisturizer and this sunscreen. I just got some hemp seed oil which absorbs fast so I might try that as a moisturizer and use that and my sunscreen lotion. If you try this, let me know how it goes! I get my oils from Mountain Rose Herbs, which is a really fun site to check out either way!
Spring-y clothes and shoes! Happy first day of spring!
That’s all I’ve got, time to hit the gym! (I’m on the right btw).

Do you do OCM (the oil cleansing method)? Or know anyone that has?
