Jessica Biel Launches BARE Bag Line


Jessica Biel recently launched a new socially responsible handbag line with the help of her brother Justin and his friend Grason Ratowsky. The collection is called BARE , all handmade in Colorado near where Biel grew up, and fashioned from reused coffee bean sacks. This collection features cool totes, backpacks, pouches and more made of recycled burlap coffee sacks from around the world, ranging in price from $80-320.
Jessica said in a recent Vogue interview: "We all grew up with the Flatiron mountains right behind us. If you had any brain at all, you would just look outside your window and go 'Oh wow, this world is something that I want to protect.'" Not only is it a pretty cool collection, but it is done with passion to protect our word we live in. This can also be a cool gift for a coffee lover as well, I know I am one! What are your thoughts about her new collection?

Raw Honey Coconut Oil Face Mask

Raw Honey Coconut Oil Face Mask- promises some serious blackhead removal and baby soft skin!
Here is what you are going to need: Virgin Coconut Oil, Raw Honey, Mixing Bowl and Spoon. Mix Virgin Coconut Oil with Raw Honey using a spoon and a mixing bowl (make sure you mix till it is fully incorporated and looks like cloudy honey). Take your fingertips and apply mixture to your face softly because the raw honey may have crystallized and can be kinda rough on your skin if you use too much pressure. Let mixture rest on your face for 15 min and then rinse off gently with lukewarm water – patting face to dry. Simple & easy!
