Mr. Arotin was out of town for a bachelor party this weekend, so I spent time with great friends eating great food, talking, crafting and spa-ing. GREAT girlie weekend.
First on the list of things I learned this weekend is that Snake Bites are delicious when made at home, but its really hard to get the drink seperation seen at a bar. I tried everything (slow pouring, using a spoon, etc.) and my cider and Guinness mixed together from the start. They still tasted delcious, so at least I had that! Any tips on how to get the Snake Bite to stay seperated?!
Next, I learned that no matter what I order at Papa Cristos, its delicious. Oh, oh and, I love Greek beer.

I always knew that the Silica in cucumbers was a good treatment for puffy, dark circles around your eyes, but did you also know that the Silica helps produce bone collagen and calcium, which helps us retain moisture in our skin?! This helps strengethen our connective tissue which leads to anti-aging effects. More, its great to use on sunburns and just as a hydration tool for dry skin.
I had no idea what mashing up a little cucumber could do for my face!
With Spring and Summer coming quickly, here is my first reminder to you all to wear your SPF EVERY DAY, find a large brimmed sunhat, and stay out of those UV rays. Tanned skinned isn't cool anymore, anyway!
Stay young, stay out of the sun.
Have a great week!
