• Beeswax & Honey Lip Balm

    January 27, 2015 admin

    My lips get funky. It’s a fact of life some of us have to deal with. Never wanting to earn the nickname “Chappy” I’ve always tried my best to be on top of my game. Some time ago I had gotten some beeswax lip balm that was very firm and actually took some rubbing to…

  • Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

    January 13, 2015 admin

    When winter hits I tend to have problems with my lips. They get crazy dry and they crack and they peel and sometimes they even bleed. How attractive is that when one of these peeling bits suddenly comes off and you’re bleeding into your hands? It’s not. It’s freaky. It’s weird. People sometimes even stare…

  • Homemade Body Butter

    November 10, 2014 admin

    When the weather starts to change from hot to warm to chilly my skin does terrible, terrible things to me. My hands get so dry that they can crack and it hurts. Add in that I’m always subjecting my hands to all sorts of random things like paint and dye and harsh chemicals and the…

  • DIY Smell Good Bath Salts

    October 2, 2014 admin

    I knew that some memory of something was sparked in the back of my mind every time I thought of “bath salts”. But I simply couldn’t put two and two together to figure it out. Thinking it was my mind playing tricks on me I didn’t do much to try to figure it out either.…

    I love taking baths. Wait… that doesn’t seem like nearly enough emphasis… I LOVE TAKING BATHS. I don’t know what it is but taking a good book (and though I am Kindle obsessed I have just a few paperbacks I’ve kept just for a good soak) and just sitting in  hot water for half an…

  • Homemade Green Tea Cooling Mist

    August 18, 2014 admin

    I keep seeing things about summer winding down and getting things ready for fall, but here I certainly can’t feel the changing of the seasons because it’s freaking hot. It’s the kind of sticky heat that makes you feel disgusting within minutes of setting foot out of the front door, even if you JUST showered.…

  • DIY Glitter Nail Polish

    July 26, 2014 admin

    At some point I’ve started biting my nails again. I don’t know when it happened or why but it’s probably stress that’s the culprit here. I’ve been chewing on my digits for as long as I can remember. As a kid that nasty stuff that tastes like all heck was applied to my fingers in…

  • Matcha Green Tea Sugar Scrub

    June 26, 2014 admin

    True story… about a decade my doctor told me that I could no longer have any food or drink which contained high amounts of acid. I was sad. Bye bye daily orange juice! But then I learned that my lifeblood, sweet tea was way up there on the list of things I could not have.…

  • Make Your Own Gold Leaf Top Coat for Less than $6

    April 8, 2013 admin

    I know that gold leaf top coat has been a thing for a few years now. Unfortunately I tend to run a quarter hour late to never on the hippest of the hip so I’m just now getting on this train. But when I decided I wanted it, I wanted it. So I hop online…
