cold brew

I love iced coffee.  Around April I switch from hot coffee to iced, and in an effort to save me some money this summer I am going to seriously take down my dunkin budget and cold brew my morning coffee.  For anyone who hasn’t experinced cold brew coffee it is very simmilar to french press but it is done with cold water rather than hot, allowing the flavor to stay in the coffee than be baked out with the hot water.  Most store locations with double brew iced coffee to get the richer flavor but cold brew will allow you do get even more flavor with a single process.  It is labor intensive, but it is so worth it in the end.  See my recipe and tips after the jump.

buy this: KMS California Hairplay Sea Salt Spray

Hair is the one thing I slack off with on a regular basis.  Most days I can’t be bothered to dry let alone brush my hair before I go to work.  I just pile it up on my head and call it a day.  Thankfully this has kept my very blonde very straight hair in good condition. 

However with summer comming I crave that wavy beachy messy hair that my hair refuses to create on its own.  I have been told to try out sea salt spray to get that ocean hair that you just can’t get here in Rochester.  Enter KMS Sea Salt Spray*. 

I am super passionate about this product because I can get that wavy messy lion hair with little effort.  It does change if you us it wet or dry or with the difuser.  My favorite is loading it up while my hair is towel dried.  Now my lucky wavy haired friends will be able to get a little bit more curl from it.  Anyone want to be my guniea pig?
