Easy Strawberry Shortcake 

This is not a caloric friendly recipe at all. My mother makes it this way every year. You can adjust the ingredients to your dietary requirements. Also the amount is based on a dozen. (  I can't believe we are doing a recipe that isn't for facial scrub ) 
Recipe makes 12 
2 package of frozen strawberry or 2 creates of fresh 
1 cup of agave nectar or 1 cup of sugar 
2 cups of water 
2 packages of six shortcake desert shells ( They are usually stocked by the strawberries this time of year.) 
1 container of Cool Whip 
1 mixing bowl 

  • If you got fresh strawberries , remove the leaves and slice into quarters. put sliced strawberries in the bowl 
  • If you got the frozen empty the containers into the bowl 
  • Add 2 cups of water to the bowl 
Add agave nectar or sugar to bowl
  • Make sure that your strawberries are covered with the sugary water , If needed add some more water
  • Give the contents of the bowl a good stir until everything is mixed evenly. 
  • Then place in the refrigerator over night.
  • Don't remove the strawberries until your ready to serve
  • Place a desert shell in a bowl 
  • Spoon the strawberries on top 
  • Add a dollup of Cool Whip 
  • Then Drizzle the top with strawberries 
  • You can add a smattering of blueberries to give it a Americana.

PTB Spring Reboot : Skincare

Clensing ( washing your face )   Cleansers : Cethaphil , Phisoderm, 
Splash warm water on your faceDispense product on your palmWith your finger tips , use upward and outward motions to apply product Once you scrubed your face . rinse it away with warm waterTake a towel and pat face dry 

Toner : Is debated in the beauty industry, I personally think it does a great job getting rid of excess dirt and restoring PH balance in your skin. If you want to skip it , Ill leave it up to you . Burts Bee's Toner ,witch hazel are my favorites though what you have on hand is good.
Wet a cotton ball with warm waterapply toner to cotton ball Using upward and outward motions Avoid eye contact 
Exfoliate : This is extremly important , you only have to do it 2x's a week. Since you shave it is a form of exfoliation your doing it already . Exfoliation is extremly important.  St Ives Apricot Scrub is my favorite  wet your face with warm water Take a quarter size amout of product apply it too yout finger tip…
