What does your perfect solo night look like? Most often I prefer spending my free time with loved ones but every once in awhile it’s blissful to be alone and do whatever you may feel like. Feel like dancing around for 5 minutes sporadically, then piling pillows and blankets all around you the next second? Anything is acceptable.
This Friday night I set a date with myself. I enjoyed a great workout, and helped teach body pump! I’m working my way to teaching a whole class and can’t wait!
After my grueling sweat sesh I made some delicious quinoa chili and sat down to watch some Modern Family and sip some wine. After a couple Modern Family episodes and wine, the magic of nothing to do settled in and I was so relaxed. Best feeling ever. So as usual I started getting crazy ideas around this point.
My current love for coconut oil began overtaking my thoughts. Before I knew it my hair was dripping in coconut oil. Any greaser would have invited me into their club.
I left the oil in my hair for about thirty minutes. It was the perfect conditioning mask for my hair. All this crazy weather hadn’t been kind to my hair.
After it was in my hair making it feel so soft, I began to want it all over my skin immediately. Leading me to recreate this delicious scrub I had enjoyed previously as a homemade gift. The recipe couldn’t be any easier.
Coconut Oil Scrub
1/2 C Coconut Oil
1 Tsp Coffee Grinds
1 Tbsp SugarThe sugar exfoliates your skin while the oil perfectly hydrates. Coffee is full of antioxidants and prevents premature aging. The caffeine in the coffee is good for your skin. Enjoyed a relaxing bath covering myself in this coconut oil scrub. And might I say, my skin is the softest skin ever for winter!
Next, I wanted to eat it. Do people just eat coconut oil? Luckily I was able to get my coconut oil love under wraps before spooning it into my mouth. I love the smell of coconut oil and pretended like it wasn’t snowing outside and that I was in the Caribbean sipping a Pina Colada. A girl can dream.
My relaxing, no agenda, night was fabulous. What does your solo night look like?
