How I Got Longer Nails, Healthier Hair and More Energy

Coffee. It's everything to me. It's my morning ritual and mid-day necessity. To say that I am addicted is an understatement. I get a headache if I haven't had any by 9 AM. It sounds serious because it is. I have tried to kick the habit but I'm not crazy. So I decided, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. So today, I am showing you the life-changing, daily coffee routine that I learned from Living With Landyn, who learned it from Virginia of Your Life Edit. I gotta give credit where credit is due, y'all.

My coffee isn't just for a jolt of energy in the morning anymore. It has made my hair and nails longer and healthier, gives me even more energy - not the jittery kind - and has become a way for me to get some healthy fat for breakfast.

Here's what you'll need:

-Your favorite coffee brew

-2 scoops of Collagen Peptides - this is what is helping my hair skin and nails. I get the Vital Proteins brand from Amazon and love it.

-1 tablespoon MCT Oil - derived from coconuts, MCT oil gives me energy! I just had some and that's why I'm using exclamation points!! I got this kind on Amazon too.

-Cream of some sort - if you need it - I do half and half.

Combine all ingredients, I use an immersion blender and it makes me feel fancy.


Look how long my nails are!! And honestly, it took me a few weeks to see a difference in taking the collagen. I was thinking about how I hadn't noticed anything and then I saw a photo of Tim and I at the beach and I was like "wow! my hair looks so healthy and long and awesome." And then I realized that my nails have never been this long. So yea, it works. And apparently its good for joint and bone health too but whatevs.

And that's it! Also, how adorable is the coffee bar that my husband built for me? He knows how important coffee is in my life.

Let me know if you try these supplements! You won't be disappointed.
