WTF To Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers? Use Them As Beauty Products, Der

The Skinny Confidential x Fox Channel 6.

Assuming you’re all going to have leftovers…

If you guys were watching Fox this morning I was a contributor on San Diego’s CW sharing how to use Thanksgiving leftovers…but as beauty products!!

Some of my favorite ways to use food for the bod? Check it:

|| The best toner ever ||
Apple cider vinegar with a little water on a cotton ball is GREAT for hyperpigmentation.

|| Sweet potato eye masks ||
F cucumbers, you can use sweet potatoes too! They’re filled with antioxidants & vitamins!

|| Cranberry sauce scrub ||
Ok, so you guys know I’m OBSESSED with dry brushing, right? Use fresh cranberries with a little thick REAL brown sugar & sugar & voila! You’ve got yourself an all natural scrub.

|| Brighting, rad oatmeal mask ||
Make a quick, lil mask by using lemon, oatmeal, brown sugar, & apple cider vinegar. The lemon seriously, seriously whitens skin removing any dark spots. And mixed with the apple cider vinegar?! Soooo good.

|| Pumpkin pie ultra hydration mask ||
 For those of you with drier skin, this mask is perfect. Just use pumpkin puree ( real pumpkin, none of that fake shit ), cinnamon, & turmeric. Turmeric is AMAZING for inflammation. So pile the mixture on your face for a few minutes & prepare to see the difference. Another pumpkin product I die for? This spicy pumpkin scrub. YUM.

|| Brown sugar lemon exfoliate ||
You guys know my sick obsession with lemon sugar scrubs so this one was kind of a no brainer. I feel like it’s an all-natural version of this one. Plus…you could eat in the shower if you got hungry.

AND pleasssse don’t forget to feed leftover pumpkin puree to your dogs. PIXY & T.BOONE PICKENS DIE FOR IT. It’s sooo good for dogs. Total superfood.

Ok, no go get your buzz & tryptophan coma on. Happy Thanksgiving!!! – Lauryn

Thanksgiving is the bomb.

Because, duh? Who doesn’t want to eat, drink, & chill?

I did my cooking early in the morning ( I made these Brussels & this skinny pumpkin roll x 2 ) so I could relax instead of running around like a bat-shit psycho ( << AKA per usual ).

& you guys…my stepmom, Julie set the most beautiful table.

She’s so damn creative & inspiring; her cute name tags kill me— like, seriously?!

BTW, I can’t take photo cred for the pics- they’re all from her blog, Burlap and Crystal.

Thanksgiving favorite foods: fresh cranberry sauce & jalapeño corn pudding.

Together.

Fancccccyyy.

Oh, & here’s what I wore ( << this whole outfit is on sale for Cyber Monday (!!) ):

Anyway, The Evarts’ dinner ended with my sisters & I headbangin’ to Christmas music.

I’d say it was a success.

How was your TG?

Multi-tasking at its finest, peeps.

1.} ASOS: ummmm…20% of EVERYTHING. Die, right?! Promo code: GIMME20.

2.} Nasty Gal: take 40% off everything black ( the best color ever ).

3.} Net-a-Porter: get up to 50% off select merchandise.

4.} Nordstroms: all their Black Friday deals can be found here.

5.} Planet Blue: an extra 25% off all sale items. So basically free, right ; )? Code: BLACKOUT.

Well, not really, but kinda.

I wanted to post the PERFECT Skinny Confidential recipe for you guys.

But I didn’t want to make skinny stuffing or nasty gravy ( sorry, not a fan ).

So alllllll day long I was OCD-ing on WTF to post {?!?!}.

At around 6 pm I decided to text my über-healthy friend, Carly.

And obviously she had the best recipe ever. Because, duh.

I mean, seriously— cinnamon/cider Brussels sprouts?

Heaven.

The easiest directions ever ( makes four servings ): in a large pan over medium heat, heat oil. Cook Brusssels sprouts ( cut side down ), flipping once until browned for ten to twelve minutes. Add apple & pear; cook until soft for five minutes. Add cider & cinnamon; simmer, stirring, until all liquid cooks away.

Oh, & NBD: a serving offers about 3/4 of your daily need for Vitamin C.

I made these today & will def be whipping ‘um up tomorrow for TG.

So good it hurts.

Happy Thanksgiving-eve!
