Ah-Love Oil

This may be dumb but my beauty for today is olive oil. It tastes good and I use it a lot in cooking but I have discovered a new use for it.
We have been pretty tight on money lately...I am not really sure why...I think maybe our bank account has a very tiny leak that has been unaccounted for and cannot be seen by the naked eye. Anyway, the leak has caused me to run out of all things cosmetic and so I have been forced to be creative.

Did you know that olive oil is a great make-up remover as well as a great well as a great dipper for bread with spices and a little balsamic...mmmmm...lunch time anyone?

I know now and it is beautiful...and so am I dangit.

I love it. That is a great tip. I may have to try it as a makeup remover. Maybe over tonight's dinner. I have read it can be a great deep conditioner for try hair.

Here is a great website and there are many more websites about vinegar. Brandon thinks I am silly. However I use vinegar in all aspects of my life.

Also no need to buy ant powders. Just find their pile and dump a ton of boiling water on it. It is awesome to watch them spill out and then the next day there are a ton that are dead. I know I am a killer but I really hate ants.

We have been short on funds too! That leak thing must be going around. . . I ran out of powder, and face wash, and can't go buy some right now. Will olive oil work for both of those? Bar soap and baby powder aren't doing the trick!! What about crow's feet? Boiling to water to kill them? Yeah!!!
