A Light Refreshment Never Tasted So Good!

In the summertime there is nothing more delicious than a sweet cold treat! This summer, I recently discovered the Lil' Pop Shop while wondering around South Street in Philly. I am always drawn towards froyo places, but gourmet popsicles seem to be the new thing!

Lil' Pop shop creates mouth watering treats with fresh, local, and delicious ingredients. the hand-crafted pops  are made according to the array of seasonal fruits, herbs, spices available at the time! 

The shops are located at 265 S. 44th St., West Philly, 534 4th Street, or there is also a truck taking stops around the city! Be sure to check them out and the delicious flavors! 

                                                            Stay Cool!

Nothing out of the Ordinary

It is Sunday. Take time to relax  and lounge with family and friends before the work week starts up again. Earlier this week I went to go see Monster U with my sisters. I was feeling a little kidish and it was the perfect movie that brought out the "little kid" in me. One of the previews really caught my attention, "The Blue Umbrella" was the name of it. It pointed out ordinary things we see in everyday life, but put human-like characteristics to them. Here are some fun ones that I found searching the web! Look out around your house, it is "nothing out of the ordinary!"

Here are some of my favorites that I found on Bored Panda !

Look out around your home and town! Little things like this might just put a smile on your face! Look for a pair of eyes and the rest of t he face pops right out at you! 

Happy Sunday

Staying Cool on Hot Summer Days

I am always trying to stay cool during these long hot summer days. I have been trying to stay in AC, but sometimes  I get restless and do not know what else to do with myself! So I decided to do a little research on  ways to stay cool and energized!

Here are some easy tips that can help us stay cooler!

Avoid foods that are high in protein, which increases metabolic heat.
Try to eat small meals instead of large ones. Eat salads, veggies, fruit, fish, and any other light dish!

Eat spicy food!
It might sound crazy cause spice an make our body produce sweat, but curries and chillies can stimulate heat receptors in the mouth. It enhances circulation and causes sweating, which cools the body down!

Moisturize with cooling aloe vera aftersun product.
Use in both he morning and night, it will help lower your skin temperature. Try and keep an aloe plant in your house too! It is always nice too have for after sun care. It is also has great benefits to our skin. it helps fight bacteria and helps rebuild new tissue. It is a great natural anti-wrinkle remedy!

Drink chrysanthemum tea.
It is said to be a cooling herb which clears the head and calms the nerves.

Sit back, close your eyes and picture snow. Research has shown that the body reacts to these daydreams, reducing its overall temperature! 

                                                                   Happy Wednesday!
