Life Hacks Discovered

Sometimes I randomly discover something that's a life changer.

Lucky for you, I'm going to share a couple things I've found because they're too good to keep to myself.

This first one Alec, my son actually discovered and, well, yes this one may very well be life changing!

It starts with peanut butter, the kind you have to stir because it's all natural (aka the best kind) and the oil separates from the ground nuts. Here's the trick, store the jar upside down! No more oily peanut butter on top and dry peanut butter on the bottom! Yea, I know! You're welcome.

The second life hack involves coffee. If you feel your coffee is just a little too bitter, before you brew it, put one shake of cardamon in the coffee. Careful not to add more than a shake you just want to cut the bitterness and not over power the coffee flavor.

My mom also swears that one drop of vanilla extract in your cup of coffee will also cut the bitterness.

Last weekend we made a trip to the Hulda Klager Lilac Garden in Woodland, Washington for the Lilac Festival.

Next to the scent of daphne in the winter and gardenia in the summer, lilacs in the spring are my favorite!

After visiting the gardens I promptly went home and cut some of my lilacs for the house. I rounded up this hack on how to prolong the life of your cut lilacs I shared a couple years ago.

Also, don't forget the dryer ball trick I shared a while back!

How about you? Do you have any life hacks to share? I'd love to hear about them in the comments below!

Soap On The Rack

Not to alarm anyone but Mother's Day is May 13th!

Lucky for you, Lora's Beauty is stocking up on all the best goats' milk soap any mother would love.

The Patchouli Cedar Sage bar has just finished curing and is ready to ship.

I added a little french green clay to this bar to give it a soft green color and to provide detoxifying benefits. This is a beautiful bar with a nice patchouli cedar scent that lingers on the skin.

Also in stock is the Mug-o-Beer bar.

Made with beer, this popular bar is a great shampoo. We've been using it for many years now on our hair. It adds extra body and with the shea butter rich head, it moisturizes too!

Of course, every mom likes lavender and plenty of  the Lavender Meringue goats' milk soap is available.

As is the new Orange Poppy Seed goats' milk bar!

Order some for yourself and your mom, or just yourself. Or just your mom. Or... no, order some for yourself too!

The new website is up and running so please check it out and leave a review!
