DIY Sugar Scrub with Delindel

6 Feb

It’s summer here in New Zealand, my least favourite season for many many reasons. I prefer winter fashion, I hate getting hot and sunburnt and sticky, and I hate feeling like it has to be the “perfect summer” every year. Summer is just icky.
Physically one of my biggest problems with summer is that I always dry out, especially my legs and lips. No matter how well I look after my lips, they always end up sad and cracked in summer. And while I love Lush lip scrubs, with my money issues I can’t justify buying them when I could make my own with household ingredients!

Easy Berry Smoothies with Delindel

It’s a bit of a stretch for me because I hate wasting my time walking, but hey. It’s summer. And walking is good. I like going to Farro because I really do feel like everything there is super fresh; best of all, they support small New Zealand growers. Plus there’s something neat about being able to buy a hot fresh coffee from a counter in the centre of the supermarket, then paying for it at the checkouts.

Anyway, yesterday I went for a big ole walk out to Farro and picked up a random selection of fresh fruits and vegetables… This is relevant because this is where I got the idea that smoothies would be an excellent and healthy alternative to rubbish.

Without further rambling… You will need:
