How To Make Glycerin Soap Without Lye

If you are new to soap making, glycerin soap is the easiest type of soap to make at home. It is also called melt-and-pour soap because you simply melt the soap base and pour it into a mold. You can make a basic bar of soap, or you can customize the soap with things like color, scent, and additives to make a fun bar of soap.  You can get so creative with this kind of soap, so have some fun with the different melt and pour soap additives!

Fall Beauty Tips

I'm not sure where this summer went.  I don't even remember June, and I'm pretty sure July lasted about 2 days.  August?  Yeah, that flew by and we are in our second week of school now!  At this rate, I think I'll be sipping a pumpkin spice latte whilst wearing Ugg boots next week.  

It's time to start thinking about changing my beauty routine from summer to fall.  My hair and skin both have different needs in the fall, so I usually get a lot of new products.  Here are my top fall beauty tips for your skin, hair, and makeup.

I don't feel like we summer was much of a break because we were so busy.  As soon as summer died down, homeschooling started, which means that extracurricular activities and sports started.  With such a crazy schedule, I need to schedule in some down time for myself.   Right now, I'd love to schedule a facial or a massage so I can get some time to relax.

Last week, we took a day off and went to Kings Island to have some fun during their Kings Island Kicks Cancer promotion.  We could not have picked a better day to go.  School had just started in that area and it was pouring down rain in the morning, so the park wasn't that busy.  When the rain stopped shortly after the park opened, it turned in to a beautiful day.
