Our rental house (god bless it) doesn’t have a true master bathroom. We have two full baths right next to each other but both are far from master worthy. For reasons unknown, we’ve kept the door to the second bathroom closed for more than a year, suffering together in a too-small powder blue bathroom because that’s what love and cohabitation is, I guess.

It took 12 hours and countless trips back and forth but I successfully completed the easiest move of all time two doors down from my old place.

Coconut Grapefruit Sugar Scrub


I’ve only just recently started getting into a skincare routine mostly because: 30. While I’m paying more attention to the level of moisture under my eyes and, you know, actually washing my face, I’m still super lazy about taking care of the rest of my body.

Truth be told, I don’t like to put on lotion because it becomes a magnet for cat hair. Why would I slather on a paste that makes me a target for hairball tumbleweeds? I don’t need this in my life.

Thankfully this make-at-home exfoliating moisturizing body scrub kills the skincare and moisturizing birds with one stone and is not prone to cat hair attraction.
