DO bring re-usable drinkware, like travel coffee mugs and glass or metal water bottles. You can fill a large sports jug with filtered water at home and refill your water bottle along the way. Not only will you save plastic by not buying disposable water bottles, you'll also save money in the long run.

DO look for recycling bins at rest stops, just in case you have to have that can of soda.

DO bring healthy snacks. Fill your own containers with nuts and dried fruit from the bulk bins, and bring fresh fruit like apples, oranges, berries, and peaches, too. Bento Boxes, which come in stainless steel, are great for dividing up snacks. By bringing your own snacks from bulk bin purchases, you won't be wasting plastic and other packaging on individually wrapped snacks.

DO bring re-usable utensils, like napkins, forks, spoons, knives, and stainless steel straws.

DON'T accept a plastic straw or plastic bag if you can avoid it.

DO seek out local farmers' markets on your trip. You can visit www.ams.usda.gov/local-food-directories/farmersmarkets to find options along your route.

DO visit local eateries. Use greenease.co to find local restaurants that use sustainable practices. You can also use the app to find restaurants that offer options like gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan-friendly, and more.

DO get your vehicle tuned up before you hit the road to make sure you're getting the best possible gas mileage. You can check your car's carbon footprint at terrapass.com/carbon-footprint-calculator. 

DON'T carry any unnecessary weight in your car. If you have unneeded items stored in your trunk, take them out before your trip.

DON'T use a rooftop cargo box if you can avoid it. They can reduce your gas mileage by 25% or more.

DO use cruise control when safe to help improve your gas mileage.

DON'T idle when you don't have to. According to the Environmental Defense Fund, idling for even 10 seconds will use more gas than restarting your car in modern cars. Unless you're unable to open your windows for fresh air, if you're waiting outside a rest stop or stuck at a drawbridge, go ahead and turn the car off, until it's time to move again.*

*Be safe! It's hot in the South and you should always make sure you have fresh air to breathe. Only turn off the car when it is safe to do so, you can open your windows, and when you won't overheat. Never leave a child or pet in the car.

Embracing Natural Summer Hair

Written by Chelsea Kester / Photographed by Siobhan Egan / Hair by Chelsea Kester / Makeup by Dollface by Jules / Model: Caty Cote

Wildflower Gypsy Salon + Apothecary is rooted in the belief that owning and celebrating our own femininity grows deeply seeded confidence in our own beauty. Summer in the South lends itself to the perfect time to embrace our natural hair texture and give our traditional beauty routines a break. The best part, besides gaining more time to spend at the beach or gardening, is the ability to still feel pretty and put together.

My favorite way to style summer hair is letting it air-dry naturally. With the right products and a good routine, any type of hair can enjoy this luxury. I always advise clients and friends to use a healthy and hydrating shampoo and conditioner routine in the shower first. This creates a solid foundation for all manageable hairstyles. I personally love Innersense Organics or Surface Haircare. After shampooing and thoroughly rinsing out your conditioner, brush your hair while in the shower. This helps shed loose hairs and creates a more dependable air-dry style once you’re out of the shower.

After you’re done showering, spray a leave-in conditioning spray or hair oil that pairs well with your hair texture and thickness. My go-to’s are Wildflower Gypsy’s Rose + Frankincense Hair Nectar or pure organic argan oil. Follow this with a sea salt mist like our Hibiscus Rose Salt Spray. And at this point, habit will tell you to brush your hair, but resist the temptation! We want your hair to have as much texture and wave to it, and this is the best way to achieve it. Lastly, scrunch your hair and then leave it alone. If you feel like you need a little more volume, feel free to flip your head over and scrunch as it dries.

The best part about air-drying is its imperfect beauty. Every time you air-dry, you’ll most likely have a different look. If you’re having a day where you want to get your hair away from your face, or want to dress it up, a braid is the perfect option. A fishtail braid is my favorite for its ability to look different on everyone, but a traditional three-strand braid looks just as stunning. Simply create a low braid in the back of your head, making sure to not pull the strands too tight. Pull out a few pieces of hair in the front and you’re all set!

If it's a really hot day, a topknot with an accent of a hair scarf is amazing. Pull your air dried hair up into a high ponytail, twist hair into a bun and pin. You can rock a hair scarf like a headband; just fold it down and tie in the back. Or you can take a small scarf and wrap it around your bun and tie in the front. The options are limitless.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper

  • Pinch of nutmeg 

  • 1 TBSP fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 1/2 cup swiss cheese, shredded

  3. In a small pan, sauté the spinach in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook until wilted. 

  4. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and pour in heavy cream. Add in salt, pepper, nutmeg, and thyme. Stir well. Fold in cheeses and spinach. 

  5. Spoon quiche mixture into muffin tin on top of crust pieces. 

  6. Bake for about 13 minutes or until egg mixture is firm and crusts are slightly brown. 

  7. Serve immediately or at room temperature. Garnish with fresh thyme.

Step One

Stretch your fabric in the embroidery hoop. Make sure it is taut and not flexible inside the hoop – you want it to be like a drum top, but don’t bang on it ;)

Step Two

Lay the hoop, fabric side down, over your selected motif. Make sure there is at least .5” margin from the hoop edge to your design. Trace the design on to the fabric with your sharpie.

Step Three

Using a brush, block out the negative space with Mod Podge. Make sure to cover anywhere you do not want your ink to come through, like around the hoop edge. Flip the hoop over and wipe off any mod podge that has pooled on the back. Hold your hoop up to the light to check for any areas that still need blocking.

Step Four

Grab your hand hairdryer and dry the glue. It dries fast!

Step Five

The moment you’ve been waiting for…printing time! Lay your hoop, fabric side down, onto your tote bag. Scoop some ink (we mixed our own color) in a line along the edge of your design. Making sure to hold your hoop down so it doesn’t shift, take your squeegee (or spatula) and pull the ink across the design. Pull the ink back and forth about four times or until you have covered the area well.

Step Six

Now, it’s time for my favorite part…the lift! Lift your hoop off slowly and look at your awesome work! Let dry or use hairdryer.

Step Seven

You’re almost done! To ensure the ink doesn’t wash out you need to heat set it. Turn your iron to high heat (mine is on the linen/cotton setting), make sure the heat plate is clean, and that the steam is turned off. Slowly move the iron over your dried ink for about 1 minute.

DIY Farmers' Market Tote with Moss & Marsh

Today we’d like to welcome Candace Brodmann to the Paprika Southern blog! Candace is sharing a two-part Farmers’ Market Tote DIY. In this installment, she’s teaching you a simple technique for making your own tote bag. You can make your tote whatever size you wish. This part of the DIY does require the use of a sewing machine, but if that’s not your jam, no worries, part two of the DIY can be done with a store-bought tote bag (bonus, part two is also kid-friendly!)

Hello lovelies! I’m Candace Brodmann, owner of Moss & Marsh. Part of the reason I started M&M is because I adore making functional things from scratch as well as crafting gifts for people. So, I was super excited when Paprika Southern and I started working on this fun DIY project for you all to enjoy…because who doesn’t love having the perfect bag to stroll through a farmer’s market on a sunny Saturday morning? I’ve always liked whipping up easy projects on the sewing machine and today I’m going to share a quick tote bag tutorial with you.

Materials

  • ½ yard of canvas or heavyweight fabric

  • 2 yards webbing or twill (anything that will work as a strap)

  • thread

  • scissors

  • pins

  • iron

  • sewing machine

 

Step One

Decide how big you want your bag. You can measure an existing bag for reference. This bag will be 12”W x 13”L perfect for picking up a few things at the farmer’s market.

Step Two

Take your fabric and fold it in half – where the fold is on the short side. Measure 19” from fold and cut, then measure 13” from side to side and cut. If you’re making a different size bag, simply add 6” to the length for the hem & bottom gusset and 1” to the width for seam allowance.

Step Three

Now, this is the trickiest part of the whole bag. Once you get through this you’re golden. Take the fold and push it inwards 2”. It should make a “W” from the side. Push it flat with your hand and carefully pin in place making sure the inward fold is even on each side. Pin all the way down both sides.

Step Six

Time for straps! I love buying pre-made straps to make life easier and sometimes you can find a cool decorative option. I’m using a nylon webbing for these straps, cut to 30” each. This is a little longer than the norm, but I like my straps longer so I can fit all the veggies and long baguettes easily under my arm. If you get nylon or polyester webbing, to prevent the ends from fraying you can melt the cut ends with a lighter.
