Sand Gone "Tomoson" Review/Giveaway

This summer my family and I went off to the beach for the very first time. Oh, it was such and amazing time at Virginia Beach. The beauty, sounds, colors and well everything else made the beach great. We spent days and hours at the beach playing in the sand and in the water. It is funny I didn't know how much stuff you had to take to the beach when you have little ones. Another thing I wasn't aware of was the sand how it literally becomes a second skin it sticks to you so much. Not only does it really stick to you it does not want to hardly come off so on the way to the motel oh you are itching like crazy and it get all over the inside of your car. I think the aftermath with the sand is the only thing I could have done without.

Beauty Guacamole Recipe

Discover the beauty of avocados. Technically a fruit, avocados are a wonderful source of fat, good fat. With their creamy texture and beautifying oils, avocados are extremely filling and provide long-burning fuel.

What better way to kick off your Labor Day weekend and fall season then with a beautifying recipe from The Beauty Detox Solution by celebrity nutritionist, Kimberly Snyder.

Beauty Guacamole Ingredients:
2 medium avocados
1 medium garlic clove, chopped very finely
Cayenne pepper, to taste
Juice of ½ a lemon
¼ tsp. Celtic or Himalayan Sea Salt
1 cup chopped tomatoes

Slice the avocados lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out the green avocado flesh and add to a medium-size mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice and mash the avocados, using a fork. Make it as smooth as you like, or if you like your guacamole chunky, then don’t mash too much! Add the garlic, sea salt and cayenne pepper and mix well.

Add the chopped tomatoes last and mix well again.

Enjoy the guacamole with veggie sticks as a filling, wonderful afternoon snack during Labor Day weekend! You can also serve the guacamole on top of a large green salad for a great lunch or dinner. I am making this for our cookout on Saturday, I am sure it will be a hit with my friends and family.
