Homemade Marshmallows

Y’all homemade marshmallows! Need I say more? 

Homemade marshmallows are a super fun and easy dessert your kids will love. They sound way more complicated then they are. It’s fun to see how big and fluffy they get too. Okay okay these may not be the most nutritious post I’ve ever done. Yes there is refined sugar in these…. But it’s ok to splurge every once in awhile right? I mean we can’t eat perfect 100% of the time. If you can hats off to you. Your willpower is much stronger than mine.

These are delicious to top hot cocoa with! You may have seen a picture from last week on Instagram and Facebook of my delicious homemade hot cocoa topped with these bad boys. Yeah it was beyond awesome! I savored every single drop and I love how these marshmallows melt. Have I convinced you yet?

Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop #117…


Stamped Tribal Clutch

Hey y’all! This week was a booger of a week. We had the rest of the electrical in our whole house completed which was a hefty penny. Then of course I got sick and our dishwasher decided to poop out! It’s during these times I’m most thankful for what we have. Sounds odd, but I think we forget a lot how much we are blessed with. So even during this annoying time I still find joy in what’s in front of us. Let’s hope next week goes by much better!

Soothing Magnesium Bath…

Soothing Magnesium Bath

Did you know magnesium is responsible for a 300 bodily functions? It’s a crucial mineral in the body that we may not be getting enough of. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) showed that at least half of the U.S. population had inadequate intakes of magnesium.

Magnesium is such a crucial mineral in the body that deficiency can lead to heart disease, kidney disease, asthma, anxiety, depression, tooth decay, hypertension, and much more.

How do you get magnesium?

Food is one way. Good sources include: leafy greens, beans, squash, seeds, nuts, and fish. One issue with getting magnesium from food is that industrial farming has decreased the amount of it in our food supply and our bodies don’t absorb magnesium well through our digestive tract. Which would explain why so many American’s are deficient.

Another way to increase our magnesium is by taking a soothing magnesium bath. The skin does a great job absorbing magnesium. Not only will you get the benefits of magnesium, but you will also relax your tired achy body. Just what I need. 

Soothing Magnesium Bath Salts

Soothing Magnesium Bath


Directions: Fill a warm bath with water. Add epsom salts and essential oils. Soak for 20-30 minutes and pretend you can’t hear the kids screaming.

Have you tried a magnesium bath?

Always consult your physician before attempting. This post does not take place of medical advice.
