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. In the meantime, the community center where I volunteer had gotten a grant to take down some

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.

Honey Comb Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

This easy technique makes melt and pour soap that looks like a honeycomb. Winnie the Pooh is one of my favorite Disney movies, so I'm really excited to see the new Christopher Robin movie when it comes out in a few weeks.  Since I keep seeing Winnie the Pooh everywhere, I decided to make a honey soap inspired by the new film. Honey is a great natural additive for soap, but I also made the soap look like a honeycomb both in color and texture.  The technique that I used is so simple to do, too.  You can make this honey melt and pour soap recipe in about 15 minutes. 

Grain Free Dog Treat Recipe With Flax Seeds, Pumpkin

This grain free dog treat recipe has peanut butter, pumpkin, flax seeds, and chia seeds to help your dog's skin and coat. If you watch my Instagram stories , then you've seen Nacho, my chihuahua.  He's most definitely a momma's boy.   He sits beside me while I write, and I may or may not have bought an extra wide recliner just so the dog has room to sit beside me while I'm working. Nacho recently went grain free, and it's really helped him.  I bought him some grain free treats, but he didn't like them as much as his old treats.   He really likes pumpkin, so I wanted to make him some a healthy grain free dog treat recipe for a snack.  This recipe is full of ingredients that are good for dogs, like pumpkin, peanut butter, flax seeds, chia seeds, and coconut oil. GRAIN FREE DOG TREAT RECIPE WITH FLAX SEEDS, PUMPKIN My husband brought Nacho home when he was just a puppy.  Someone at his work had one pup left over, so we took him in.
