Foods with Benefits: Oatmeal

Hey all!
I'm starting a new series called "Foods with Benefits" (FWB). I'm going to be explaining some of the benefits of certain foods and explain why I eat them and why they are just plain awesome!

Homemade Green Tea Frappuccino

Remember when I made that extremely depressing post on how I/we  need to stop visiting Starbucks, and how I was going to make a DIY Matcha Frap for you all? Well here it is!

It was ridiculously easy! I used coconut sugar because I had it on hand but you can use whatever sweetener you have, or leave out a sweetener all together!
Ingredients:
  • 1 heaping tsp Matcha (green tea) powder
  • 1 cup of milk (frozen for about 2 hours)
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • about 2 spoonfuls of coconut sugar




Blend everything up and serve immediately! :)

You can really taste the green tea! I love it!
Let me know if you try it out! Leave any questions, comments or requests below :)
XOXO

What's Currently on My Wishlist?

I'm a horrible procrastinator, or should I say, great procrastinator..? At any rate, all of that procrastination=time to do the most random stuff, which means WINDOW SHOPPING! Ah, one of women's greatest past times...

So, what have I been eyeing lately? Glad you asked! Just as a disclaimer: prepare for a very long post, there's A LOT I would buy if I could!

Makeup and Beauty:

Tarte's Inner Rim Brightener this is just what I need for my almond-shaped eyes! Plus, the nude is more subtle than using white, which can sometimes look too harsh and unnatural. My friend actually bought me this for my birthday and I love it! I should warn you it tends to wear off some-what easily. However, it is super brightening!
