Best Essential Oil Diffuser and How to Use It

Getting an essential oil diffuser was one of the best purchases I've made in the last year.  It's easy to use, and we see a lot of results, depending on the oils I diffuse.  I love how versatile it is; I can use it when we are sick, when we need to get a good night's sleep, and even to relax us.  The best essential oil diffuser isn't necessarily the most expensive one.  There are a wide range of prices, and each one has different benefits.

How to Make a Princess Briar Rose Head Band

When I say that my 9-year-old daughter is dramatic, I really mean it.  She's involved in community theater, so it's kind of important that she is dramatic.  Even though we live in a rural area, we are very fortunate to have a great theater here that has shows for adults, teens, and children.  She couldn't wait to be old enough to join, and now she's done two plays.  This summer, they were doing a production of Briar Rose: A Tale of Sleeping Beauty .  She auditioned and got the lead part!  There were older kids in the play, so we were very happily surprised that she was picked for Briar Rose. The theater provides the costume, and they picked the traditional Disney Sleeping Beauty pink dress. We were going to have her wear a tiara, but her hair was an issue.  Since she lies down when she's struck by the curse, we wouldn't do any type of updo for the play.  Her hair is in long layers, so we decided to use a head band.  I made this easy princess Aurora head ban

DIY Makeup Brush Cleaning Board

I'm sure you all know how important clean makeup brushes are, right?  Who wants to spread dirt, grime, product, and bacteria all over their face?  Yuck!  I was using a Dove Beauty bar or my DIY makeup brush cleaner to clean my brushes, but they didn't feel like they got clean enough.  I saw a makeup brush cleaning board, and I thought that I could recreate it for a fraction of the price.  And I did.
