Well, it’s almost that time already. Have you decided what to wear on Halloween? My 6 year old told me that she would like to dress up on Halloween though we do not celebrate Halloween as it is not so popular over here. She has been seeing lots of Halloween costumes for sale at the mall. It would be great if there is a Halloween party so I can dress her up.

I just saw a few items at The Kitchen outlet that are very handy for the home. I could do with a few of these items. They will certainly make my life easier.
IMCG Plate Spacer. These are plastic blocks that should be place at three different sides of a plate. They help to pile the plates nicely to save space and time.
Norpro Apple Corer which features stainless steel blades that cuts into 8 even wedges.
Chef’N High Tailer Shrimp Deveinier. This is just what I need because I do not like to peel and devein shrimps. Just give it a simple squeeze and the stainless steel end would do everything in just one step.

Things have been pretty hectic for the past week. There was a get-together over the weekend, dinner with friends, errands to run and not to mention grocery shopping. Besides all that, I need to help a friend to look for life insurance online quotes and also try to make this DIY Citrus Salt Scrub. I saw this fantastic recipe at Pinterest ( via http://www.kristanlynn.com) it looks pretty easy to make. If it turns out good, I think I would make a few jars for my girlfriends whom I would be meeting next month. If you would like to give it a try, check out the recipe below.
You will need:
1 cup of sea salt
1/4 cup almond oil (can substitute olive oil or vegetable oil)
1/2 tsp lemon juice (or zest)
1/2 tsp orange zest
Firstly, mix the oil and sea salt together (Add a bit of oil at a time, you may not need all that is called for!)
Add orange zest.
Drizzle the lemon juice over the salt and oil mix ((you do not want too much lemon juice, or else your mixture will become a watery consistency.)
How to exfoliate:
Clean body as normal in shower.
Just before getting out, apply salt scrub in a firm circular motion all over body.
Concentrating on those knees and elbows
Rinse and pat dry with towel.
