My 4th of July was spent on Lake Coeur d’Alene at my family cabin. This year my ‘must-brings’ included:
1) An array of sunscreen. SPF 45+ creams, sprays, wipes…anything to keep me from looking crispy and raisin-esque. Just say no to Teste-Face.
2) Sensible swimwear. As I say goodbye to my 20’s, I too must part with teeny bikinis exposing my bits ‘n pieces. Not a good look.
3) McClure’s Spicy Bloody Mary mixer. A new must have deserving my “chips” award. In a sea of overly sweet summer cocktails, this yummy savory mix brings the heat.
McClure’s Spicy Bloody Mary Mixer has just the right combo of salt, sour, and spice. The ingredients taste fresh and not processed, the sodium content is lower than other popular mixes, and you can actually see the herbs and spices floating about (chili flakes, dill, etc). The flavor is strong, a little goes a long way. I actually prefer to mix McClure’s w/a bud light (any lighter beer will work) to make a yummy red beer/Chelada vs. the traditional vodka bloody Mary.
BONUS: McClure’s mix also makes for a great chicken marinade. I threw some in a zip lock bag w/chicken thighs overnight. We grilled the chicken the next day - FAB.
I found McClure’s Bloody Mary Mixer at Fred Meyer’s ($5.99) and bought it on a whim. But they also sell it online at Amazon.
1 mix, 3 ways to use it.
Everybody has a skincare regiment they stick to obsessively, until it doesn’t work then they blame life, genetics, god, the cast of Hey Dude. Our skin changes w/age so what worked as a teen certainly won’t cut it as a stressed out adult. I’m approaching 30 which is the Zits/Wrinkle shitty combo stage - FUNFUNFUN PAAAAARRRRRTAAAYYY!!!!
Most skincare systems say : Soap, Toner, Lotion.
So in terms of the Toner situation, this simple cheap Dickinson’s Witch Hazel toner is my new fave I’m Fuxxxxxing with. It has a nice herbal smell, it cleans out the gunk in your pores, and doesn’t over dry. I feel like it preps my face pre makeup too.
It’s around 4 bucks and available at groceries stores, Rite Aid, Walmart etc etc.
