2 on Tuesday

I don't think it's a secret by now that I love beauty products.  I am such a product junkie.  When I was in SF visiting Vanessa, she had some Trader Joe's shampoo/conditioner in her shower.  Of course, I had to try it.  I wasn't expecting it to be anything great (I admit I can be a brand snob sometimes), but I have to admit, I really like it.  It makes my hair feel soft and doesn't weigh it down (I have really fine hair).  It does just as good as a job as any other shampoo and since they are only $2.99 a bottle, my wallet likes it too.

While I was in Marshall's a couple of weeks ago, I find these great popsicle molds.  This weekend, I decided to make my first batch.  Nothing too crazy, I just pureed some watermelon cubes with about 1 tablespoon of honey.  After filling the molds, I popped them into the freezer overnight to solidify.  They turned out quite delicious!  I think if I make watermelon ones again, I will add a pinch of sea salt to the mixture.  I know it's weird, but I always add salt to watermelon.  I don't know how to describe it, it just makes it taste better.

Does anyone else had salt to watermelon?  I also do it to cantaloupe and honeydew (basically any melon).  If not, you should try it sometime, it's Sarah approved.  


  1. Didn't even know Trader Joe's had shampoo/ conditioner!

    Is the salt thing, like when people add it to beer to cut the carbonation? Didn't they add it to hot chocolate or something on Modern Family, too? I'm a fan of salt.

    1. People add it too beer? Did not know that! I don't know what it is - my grandmother used to do it and now I do. Try it some time!
