Coconut oil: one of the best things I've ever discovered and that I now cannot live without. If you're ever hesitant about using coconut oil, here are 11 things you can use it for:

1. Dry skin on your face

I've tried everything for my dry skin, especially in the winter. Coconut oil is truly a miracle. I put a little on after I wash my face at night, and when I wake up in the morning, my face feels fantastic. It may take a few tries to do the trick. But don't give up, it helps that dry skin.

2. Dry, cracking feet

As a manicurist, I've worked to discover different products that work to heal dry feet. Here's what you do: rub some coconut oil all over your feet, wrap them in seran wrap (you'll need more than you think), put on some comfy socks and go to sleep. When you wake up, your feet feel GREAT. Do this once a week or so and you will notice a difference.

3. Dry hands or dry cuticles

Coconut oil also works the same for dry hands. Also if your cuticles tend to be very dry/cracked, especially in the winter, this will do the trick.

4. Frizzy hair

Coconut oil works to help hydrate split ends and frizzy hair. I use it a few times a week on my ends before I blow dry and it helps significantly! Don't use too much or it will feel greasy. A little bit goes a long way.

5. A mask for your hair

You can also use coconut oil as a mask for your hair in the shower! Lather it in your hair and leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse well. This will give your hair shine & moisture!

6. A coffee flavoring

If you ever get sick of the same old vanilla swirl or caramel syrup in your coffee, try coconut oil! It tastes great.

7. A sugar/salt scrub

Mix some coconut oil with sugar or Epsom salt and your choice of essential oils to create an exfoliating and moisturizing scrub.

8. Lip balm/moisturizer

Chap stick is actually really bad for your lips. I use coconut oil because it's natural and works even better than your typical lip balm, especially when lips are cracked and dry!

9. Makeup Remover

I have not used normal makeup remover for so long. Coconut oil works WAY better and even takes off that tough mascara. Not to mention one jar of coconut oil lasts forever!

10. Shaving Gel

Coconut oil works especially well as a shave gel. It's super silky and soft, so not only does it make gliding the razor easier, but it also leaves your skin shiny and extra smooth.

11. Create your own product

You can really mix coconut oil with anything and create any type of moisturizer or scrub! Just get creative and see what you can come up with!

10 Reasons Why You Need Crocs In Your Life

I don't understand why you haven't bought a pair yet.

Crocs have the perception of being the world's ugliest shoe, or sometimes you hear wearing them is "social suicide". Well, I'm here to tell you everything you've heard is wrong.

1. They go with everything

Personally, after finding the perfect outfit to wear to class, I struggle finding the right shoe to wear. I think about all the walking I'm going to have to do and I always grab my Crocs. Whether I'm wearing jeans, yoga pants or even sweatpants, Crocs are always my go-to. I mean, look at these people, doesn't look like social suicide to me. Looks pretty damn good.


2. They're extremely comfortable

If you ask anyone who owns a pair of Crocs, I guarantee you they'll tell you how comfortable these shoes are. It's like walking on memory foam or a cloud, whatever anaolgy you want to use.

3. The color range is fantastic

When you go to most sites to shop, there's a color list. Crocs gives you a color wheel. A FLIPPIN' wheel. Not to mention the bunch of patterns you can choose from like, zebra, leapord, camo, and more.

4. They come with their own accessories

Don't even get my started on the little accessories that can be added to every pair of Crocs, called Jibbitz. They're like little pins that bring out your inner child. Decorate your shoes with Disney princesses or even Star Wars.

Yes, you can get Mater on your shoe.

5. They'll be your best friend in college

This may be my own personally opinion and I may be biased, but with all the walking I do on college campus, these shoes are the best purchase I've ever made. They never leave my feet smelling like death or in pain, which I think is pretty amazing.

6. They can be worn all year round

I personally would wear my classic Crocs all year round but some people may not like that idea. That's why you should know they make a variety of different styles like sandals, wedges, boots and even FLEECE lined ones. Yes I said fleece.

7. You don't have to be an adult to wear them

Maybe it's just a girl thing, but I hated that I couldn't wear my mom's 5 inch stiletto heels when I was a kid, but with Crocs that's not a problem and my dreams aren't crushed.

8. They're a unisex shoe

This life-changing experience doesn't have to be just for girls. Guys, if you want to lounge in your sweats all day, throw some Crocs on. Heck, they even make boots that don't empty out our pockets and make your feet stink, so doesn't hurt giving it a shot.

9. They give back to their community

Crocs created Crocs Cares, which has donated over 3 million pairs of shoes to people in need around the world.

10. They can be worn in water

Nothing grinds my gears more than when I go to the beach and have to take off my shoes, that just get covered in sand anyways. An added plus to Crocs is they can be worn in water.

Most of this shocking and extremely awesome information was found on the Crocs website, where you should go because I know after reading this, you really want a pair.
