Caramel & Coconut Brownies (Gluten Free and Dairy Free)

Caramel and Coconut brownies (Gluten Free and Dairy Free) - Life With Cass

Recently I’ve seen a lot of “Samoa” inspired recipes going around Pinterest (you know, that totally delicious Girl Scout cookie with the cookie, chocolate, caramel and coconut). It prompted me to create these gorgeous brownies!

I found this recipe for coconut cream caramel a while back and these brownies seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out! Since I’ve gone dairy free (read about why I’m dairy free in this post), I am so fascinated in trying out new recipes with dairy replacements. My experience has been that most of the time you can totally make food without dairy that tastes just as delicious as food with dairy! You just have to get a little bit creative. Read More

DIY Exfoliating Spring Foot Scrub

Diy spring foot scrub - Life With Cass

Spring has sprung in Tennessee! The flowers are blooming and the sandals are coming out. I’ll be honest, I wore sandals the other day and my feet looked pretty sad- they had been cooped up in boots all winter and were in need of some TLC! 

Inspired by the beautiful and blooming springtime, I made this super easy foot scrub to slough away that dead winter skin (so gross). The sugar and oatmeal gently exfoliate your feet and the oil leaves them soft and moisturized. After a long winter it’s so important to shed that layer of dead skin!

This beautiful scrub is so simple to make, smells amazing, and leaves your feet exfoliated and ready for spring! Read More

Note: Do note that everyone’s body is different and reacts to things differently. I am just sharing what cutting out dairy did for me and I can’t say how your body will respond 🙂Read More

DIY Conditioning Hair Rinse

I use a $1 squirt bottle from Walmart to store my hair rinse. I believe it's for condiments, but it works great for putting the rinse on my hair. Here's what you need: Apple Cider Vinegar Essential oils of your choice (I use lavender and rosemary) Water

In one of my last posts Should You Stop Using Shampoo I discussed my “no poo” experience and my current hair routine. As promised I’m going to show you how I make my easy hair rinse that I use in place of conditioner. (Check out my full hair routine in the post)

This hair rinse only has 3 ingredients and is all natural! Departing from using conditioner can seem scary, but I’ve been using this hair rinse for over 4 months now, and I love it! It tames the frizz and leaves my hair shiny and soft! Plus this stuff costs next to nothing , so you’ll be saving a ton of money (yay!). Read More
