The Muffins and Self-Tanner that you need in your life

Hey, friends!  Happy Friday!  We made it to the weekend! Woohoo! Before we talk about a few other things, can I please just share about something that I find to be so fun?

Last week, I started using the new Opalens brand tanning solutions!  And, oh my stars…am I loving them.

I have to tell you that the packaging is simply beautiful…. I was almost afraid that the product wouldn’t live up to the beautiful packaging…it’s just that pretty.  But lo and behold, I have just loved this product.  The face serum is super gentle and natural and the whole line is an absolute dream to use.  My color looks super natural, and the products have the best smell also!

You should totally check it out if you are need a great self-tanning option! I have tried all three items from the starter bundle and enjoyed them all!

Also, fun? I’ve shared this recipe here before, but here is the deal…. I know that we have new readers stop in here from time to time, so I if that’s you…imagine us face to face, me smiling BIG, giving you a giant hug, and introducing myself to you (“I’m Narci!”) 😉  After I was done, I’d probably ask you over for coffee and hand you a blueberry muffin because nothing goes better with coffee than a seriously good muffin.

This muffin is delicious and just plain pretty….and your people will ask for them again and again!  

I always double or triple the recipe if I can, because this one is crowd pleaser and they never last very long!

So, whether you are a new friend….or one that’s been here since the beginning, I am so very thankful that you’ve decided to stop by at my little piece of the internet.  Brew yourself a cup of coffee in my honor (or a few, I’m not here to judge) and make these ASAP for your own home and during these hard times.  I promise you won’t regret it, and there’s nothing I like more than sharing a recipe I love with people like y’all!  Hope you have a great weekend, and I love y’all bunches! XOXO Narci

  1. Those muffins sound delicious! I may have to make them on Sunday morning to enjoy while we have church in our PJs!

    I am so enjoying your blog, and I am praying that you and your family find a perfect place to settle in and slow your life down a bit. I’m a city girl (born and raised in Nashville) but met my country boy husband in college, and we settled on his family’s land in Kentucky after we were married. Our house sits on twelve acres, and we are surrounded by about 100 acres of his family’s land. It is calm and beautiful out here and I am so thankful for it, especially during these times.


  2. I am making the muffins as we speak, but felt like the crumb topping was waaaayyy too much for them. What did I do wrong?? In your picture it looks lightly sprinkled, mine were caked. Help!


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
