Apple Cider Vinegar

So I’ve been researching natural remedies lately.. with all the talk of cancer and using natural and herbal remedies I wanted to find some information for my self.

Have any of y’all heard about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar? Its seriously like a cure-all product! By drinking 2 tbsp of ACV a day it can cure these:

  • sore throat, cough, bronchitis
  • gives healthy, glowing skin
  • diabetes
  • obesity/weight loss
  • acid reflux/ healthy indigestion
  • control fleas and give a healthy sheen to cats, dogs, and horses
  • as a rinse in the shower, can bring out highlights and shine to your own hair
  • lowers blood pressure
  • lowers cholesterol
  • allergies
  • it can also be used as a household disinfectant cleaner!

Do any of you guys use ACV? You’re supposed to put 2 tbsp in 8 to 16 oz of water, tea, or juice and you can add honey to taste if you like! Today I added 1 tbsp to a cup of mango peach green tea and used honey to sweeten it! I can barely taste it so I’ll have another cup later to get my 2 tbsp in!

What do you guys think about natural remedies? Have you tried them? Do you think they’re better? Do you have any that you always use?

Let me know!


ps. I found most of my information from you can go here and search any ailment to find natural rememdies!

and of course <- this link will take you directly to the Apple Cider Vinegar page!

My newest DIY project!

I’m back from school and my room is a MESS trying to get everything into place.. I always wanted to have a bookshelf with pretty stuff on top! so I took a break from unpacking and organizing to do this project!

in hindsight.. I maybe should’ve picked a different word other than “j’adore” since I have the LOVE sign.. oh well! I still love it!


vase- 1.00@ walmart

2 sets of flowers- .97 each @ walmart

Schools out!

I’m pretty excited school is over, but at the same time, I’m SUPER sad because my best friend from school Nicole is going back to Ohio!

She graduated Saturday (Congrats!!) and now she has to go home until she can find a job in Georgia!

I can’t wait for her to come back because we all had so much fun in our apartment together!

Miss you Neecola!
