5 Minute Coaster Update

There is nothing that I love more than a little pop of color in an unexpected place, like a fun wall piece of a colorful throw pillow. That is why when my sister-in-law Alyssa gave me these gorgeous olive wood coasters for Christmas I thought I would add a pop of color to one side of them (I left the other side as solid wood so they are super versatile now depending on the look I am going for!)   To be honest, this simple D.I.Y. update is so quick and easy, I feel a little silly even designating it…

Recycled Bottle Cap Tray

All of you know that when it comes to recycling, I am about as big of an advocate as you can be. I refuse to throw anything away that could have potential use (this can be bad in terms of staying organized…or worse in terms of food expiration dates…) but it also comes in super handy for D.I.Y. materials. I have been forcing A to save all of his beer bottle caps for the last two years and I must say that it was super handy for this new project I concocted! I love decorating my bar cart and thinking…

D.I.Y. No Sew Headband From an Old T-Shirt

Every night when I go to wash my face, I struggle with keeping my fringe out of water’s way.

Plus, the best part, it is a great recycling project since you can make it from an old t-shirt. Last week when A and I cleaned out the closets in the name of spring cleaning, we found a ton of old t-shirts…

Upcycling Your Old Candle Containers

If you were to search my house at any given time, I am 99% sure you would find at least six totally burnt out candles that I am still trying to burn to the bottom of the wick. I can’t help it! I am a huge aromatherapy kind of person (I normally have a few candles or incense burning or I have our essential oil diffuser on) and I never want to waste the sweet waxy residue at the bottom of my candles. Unfortunately A and I had a scary experience the other day when we burnt one candle too…

D.I.Y. Face Mist

I don’t know what has been going on lately, but my skin has cleared up significantly in the last few days! In the winter my face tends to get dry and dull with a thin, consistent layer of oil, so each year I can’t wait for the weather to finally warm up again. This year I am testing out a few new products to jump-start my healthier looking spring skin and I must say that I am beyond pleased with the results! And my favorite new beauty trick? This super easy to make, all natural, calming face mist. It is…
