I’m in my late 20’s. A licensed cosmetologist who loves everything about beauty products, hair products and fashion. The thing is, like my other girlfriends, I just can’t afford to buy everything I want.
My aunt Paula always told me stories about putting mayonnaise on her hair when she was my age when she could’t afford a hair conditioner. It sounded so silly when I was younger, but I get it now. A perfect and inexpensive way to make your hair shine, without spending all that money on expensive products. Really, what is mayonnaise anyway…oil and eggs. Great ingredients to condition the hair and make it shine. This got me thinking about other beauty products I could make in the kitchen.
I started giving my “kitchen spa” products to my friends as gifts all packaged up in a pretty container with a super cute ribbon and tag. They all kept raving about them so I gave some to my aunt Paula and she too couldn’t stop raving. She asked me to share them with y’all here. If you like, I’ll keep adding new ones. I have a ton of recipes and they make fabulous gifts. I’m giving my mom a whole box of them for Mother’s Day. She’ll be so happy knowing I made her something with my hands and from my heart…not to mention it will help make her feel even more beautiful than she already is.
i was wondering if you could share the recipe for the chiken/grape salad-the one that is pictured on the croissant above?

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition.
Blessings and Happy Easter!!
