DIY Essential Oil Roller Bottle Storage Block

This DIY essential oil roller bottle storage block looks pretty and holds your roller bottles until you need them. Besides my essential oil diffuser, I use my oils in roller bottles the most.  I have several of my favorite roller bottle blends that I always have ready to use plus a few spare bottles for new blends. I was keeping them on my dresser, but they would fall or get lost.  I'm a major Type A person, so things need to have dedicated space in my home.   That was the inspiration for this DIY essential oil roller bottle storage block.  It was really easy to make, too.  You only need a block of wood and a few tools to make it. DIY Essential Oil Roller Bottle Storage Block I had this idea in my head for a few weeks, but I didn't have a piece of wood.  I looked for some scrap wood and checked the Restore for something to upcycle for this project.  I never did find anything.

Hard Candy Baked Highlighting Trio Review and Giveaway

I don't ever feel like my makeup is complete without highlighter.  Even I'm just going to the grocery store, I wear highlighter.  I want highlighter for daaaaays.  I want to be able to see it from space. I mix up the colors and shades that I wear, too.  In the winter, I use a deep brownish highlighter.  In the summer, I'll use a lighter one.  I also like pink highlighters, and I use blue or purple when I'm going out.   I went to a May the Fourth Star Wars party and did galaxy eyes with pink, blue, and purple and used a blueish purple highlight.  While I wouldn't wear it every day, it did look amazing.   Have you tried layering highlighter?  It's fun playing with different colors to create whole new looks.  I do this when I'm going out just to give myself a new look without buying new product.  Because one can only have so much makeup in her stash before she runs out of room!

DIY Exfoliating Scalp Scrub Recipe

Get your scalp clean with this DIY exfoliating scalp scrub recipe made with peppermint infused avocado oil. I'm going to get real with you guys.  I have thick hair.  Thick hair and this heat and humidity does not mix well. I feel like I'm wearing a helmet that traps heat against my heat.  What I'm trying to say is that sweat happens.  Couple that with styling products, and my scalp feels gross. Even though I wash my hair three times a week, I still feel like my scalp doesn't get clean, you know?  I used a coal tar shampoo to really get my hair clean, and it worked.  My hair was so soft!  But I'm afraid to use it until it's almost time to get my hair colored because it can strip the color out of your hair.
