Paragliding in France

It was an adventure of a lifetime for us to paraglide in the French Alps this year.  From fly sites in Samoens and Annecy all the way to Le Puy.  We experienced some of the best paragliding in the world.  We trekked our way up Le Mont Criou and flew around its snow capped mountains.  In Annecy the Col de La Forclaz flights were jaw dropping gorgeous.  From take off to landing in Talloires, Doussard, Semnoz- everywhere we went was just incredible.

Coffee scrub

I love my morning cup of coffee. I use freshly ground beans every single time. Nothing goes to waste because I use the grounds to make my own coffee scrub.  Did you know that caffeine from used coffee grounds are great for exfoliation and improves circulation?  Some claim it temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite because when caffeine comes in contact with your skin it supposedly helps redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of more cellulite.  As for me, whenever i use this scrub it leaves me with a smooth, glowing skin and enhances my tan.  Not to mention it smells awesome!  My recipe is very simple.  I use one cup of ground coffee, 2 Tbsp of Olive oil, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and a tablespoon of vanilla extract. Once you have tried this you won't go back to buying those expensive scrubs again.

It's October

One grateful thought is a ray of sunshine. A hundred such thoughts paint a sunrise. A thousand will rival the glaring sky at noonday - for gratitude is light against darkness.
