I have recently stumbled upon the easiest and most effective DIY face mask and I just have to share! Maintaining clear and healthy skin is so important to me, but sometimes it can be more easily said than done. This face mask is so easy to whip up and it can help me quickly achieve healthier skin.
I love fruit dipped in greek yogurt! In case you missed my last fruit + greek yogurt post, I recently
dipped kiwi slices in greek yogurt and froze them. I was pretty much in heaven! It’s crazy how it
tastes like SUCH a treat, when in reality it’s simply fruit and greek yogurt! Two totally healthy
and good-for- you ingredients. I’m so obsessed.
I'm sure this is is no surprise, but I love having super soft hair. It drives me crazy when my hair starts to feel dry or break off when I brush it. The minute I see any breakage, I know it's time to pull out my fool proof DIY hair mask. I am so obsessed with this hair mask because it's made with totally natural ingredients. Obviously a store bought hair mask may seem like the easier option, but those masks are filled with chemicals to preserve the ingredients inside. So even if you find an avocado based hair mask at the store, only a small percentage of what your putting on your hair is truly avocado! It's way better to skip the middle man and just make the mask yourself. This way your locks only get the best of the best. Plus, it's so easy you guys!
If you guys have been following my blog lately, you probably saw my last DIY yarn wall art. Well,
I loved it so much that I wanted to make another! Of course, I didn’t want it to be exactly the
same and to tell you the truth, I wanted this next one to be a little easier to make, and it totally
is. I really do love this one, maybe even more than my last one... I love how neutral and soft it is
with the grey yarn, and I love how multi-dimensional it is with the two dowels working together.
For those of you that are new to the concept of roasting grapes, I'm with you! I recently read up on different roasted grape recipes and I was totally intrigued. I love grapes, but I usually eat them chilled... So the idea of tossing my grapes in olive oil, roasting them and eating them in a savory dish seemed out of the ordinary. However, the pictures on Pinterest made it look delicious so I had to try it for myself. Well, I am here to tell you that they are amazing!
This sugar scrub is seriously the best! I already love sugar scrubs because they are a gentle way to exfoliate your skin but this one is especially amazing. It’s all natural and made with beneficial ingredients! It consists of only three ingredients that you most likely already have sitting in your kitchen right now. It’s made with sugar, coconut oil and orange zest. Coconut oil is the ultimate natural moisturizer, plus it smells amazing. The orange zest adds natural fragrance, plus it’s a great source of vitamin C!
With Summer still in full force here in Phoenix, I am looking for any and all ways to escape the heat. Weekend getaways, spending most my time indoors, and limiting my use of hot kitchen appliances! In fact, the freezer is my new favorite kitchen appliance this summer. No heat and it can make so many healthy snacks, like this one! These yogurt dipped kiwi slices are really good AND healthy. I love that they are frozen, they are totally the perfect summer snack when you need to forget that is 115 degrees outside.
Have you ever seen a DIY party chandelier like this before?? Probably not, since this is sort of a hybrid DIY that I created based off of other ideas on Pinterest, ha! I was scrambling to throw a birthday party together last minute the other day when I started browsing Pinterest for party decor inspiration. I found cute pins for DIY wreaths and DIY chandeliers and both were so cute that I really couldn’t decide between the two! So I combined them!
Hey guys! Isn’t this yarn wall hanging so cute?! The craziest part? I made the whole thing for under $15! My favorite part is the touch of gold on all of the strings! I saw wall hangings similar to this on Pinterest and they used brass tubing. Brass tubing is so cool because it’s really high quality and it shines brilliantly. The only downside is that they get expensive when you are looking to buy 30 of them! So, I put my thinking cap on and realized that I could put gold paper straws on each string and totally get the same effect! I got my straws from Target in the DIY party section and it was only $3 for 20 of them! Plus they are great quality and super shiny, so your friends will never know that you didn’t invest $60 in brass tubing! This is the perfect afternoon DIY because it only takes a few hours to make from start to finish. Plus, the process of making the tassels is the bulk of it and it’s super repetitive so it’s easy to zone out and watch a movie while making them. Investing a few hours of my day to DIY this was so worth it because it’s a completely easy and fool-proof DIY. None of this expectations vs. reality here! Plus, at the end of day you’ll be left with something really special that you made by hand and can show off to all of your friends! Seriously, no one believes me that I made this. So roll up your sleeves, grab out the yarn, put on a movie and get started!
These little pastel cubes are shower melts and they are so easy to make! If you don't know what a shower melt is (I didn't), it's a little cube made with essential oils that you put on your shower floor as you are showering. As your shower warms up the melt starts to melt (obviously) and it releases the essential oils into the air of your shower. This is such a genius idea because essential oils are SO therapeutic.
