A to Z Challenge | Z is for ZINC OXIDE


Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess.

Hooray...huZZah...yippee! Today is the last day for taking part in the 2015 AtoZ Challenge - 26 posts on 26 days of April with Sundays off. My theme is "Things around my home". All photos are by me, Entrepreneurial Goddess. You can find my previous entries here...
  It's certainly been challenging finding things around my home for some of the not-too-often-used letters like Q, U, V, X, Y and Z. I've come across items that have been hidden in the recesses of my cupboards for I don't know how long.

Today's letter is: Y for Yellow Bananas
I love bananas - they're a good source of fibre for your digestive system and potassium to help keep your blood pressure under control. If I plan to have a very long day, I'll usually eat a healthy breakfast consisting of a banana, some fruit and a bowl of porridge (oatmeal for those in the US) and/or toast and eggs.

  I had a hard time finding anything x-like in my home. I was almost ready to give up when I saw it...my yellow hard hat sitting quietly in the cupboard. When I turned it over, I was half expecting to find work gloves or even a spider or two, but no...there it was...my "X" staring straight at me with a smile!

For the last couple of WEEKS, I've been feeling kind of WORN out and WISHY-WASHY. That's not like me since I am generally happy so I decided it WAS time to shift focus from me to something else.

I like most vegetables and try to have a serving with each meal. There are, however, some vegetables, like Brussels Sprouts, that can be quite bland and boring. However, I have found that if you roast them, they get brown around the edges and become sweet and yummy.

Today's letter is: T for Tea Set
  Whether it's teabags or loose tea...I love tea...must be the British in me! Tea is meant to be sipped and savoured. Nothing beats a good, hot, steaming cuppa (cup of tea), especially in the afternoon with either a slice or two of fruit cake or some biscuits (cookies for those in the US).

  I use a lot of essential oils in my diy products from beauty to household cleaning. Sometimes, it's difficult to envision what a scent smells like from the description. I recently discovered a company here in the US called Elements Bath & Body.

  When I first came to America, I could never get my head around the coins, in particular the NICKEL (5 cents) and dime (10 cents). Even today, fifteen years on, I still get confused between these two.

  British people love scones with jam and/or marmalade. As a British expat living in America for fifteen years now, there are still some British things I cannot do without. These include PG Tips Tea, Jam, Marmalade, Bisto Gravy, Weetabix and Imperial Leather Bath Soap to name but a few.

  For the last couple of years, I've been trying to wean myself away from chemically-laden beauty products. As such, I make my own non-greasy face serum, hair pomade, body cream, lotions, lip balm and my newest creation for letter F - Entrepreneurial Face Scrub. I never imagined I could be so creative!

  Years ago, a good friend of mine taught me how to crochet and I taught myself how to knit. They are very relaxing hobbies. I've seen some really fantastic creations, like hand-crochet afghans, which I'm told can sometimes take years to make!

Today's letter is: F for Face (and body) Scrub

This winter has been really harsh on my skin. As an allergy sufferer, the area around my nose is always dry and because I've been covered up all winter, my skin is FLAKY and patchy...time for a spring FIXER-upper!

Take a real good look at this picture...come in close...closer still. What do you see? Yes, it's an egg, but is it raw, cooked or does it represent something more sinister?

  If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know I have a love-hate friendship with Beeswax. On one hand, I like to use it in my DIY products for extra moisturization and stabilization, but on the other hand, if I use too much, it can make my creams too greasy and you'll need to air-dry all day for it to soak into the skin or it can make them so hard that they are unspreadable!
