Homemade Air Fresheners

There are few things in life I enjoy more than a really great smelling home. My apartment is flooded with candles ranging in every different scent, brand, and wax base. However, the downfall of candles are that: You cannot leave them burning when you leave your house They eventually die out :( Those beautiful little jars can be pretty pricey You can do so much with essential oils (plus the scents last a while!) that I decided to play around with what I already had on hand. Good news guys, these actually turned out! You'll Need: A jar of your choice [I chose a standard mason jar since I always have them on hand] 1/4-1/2 cup of baking soda 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil * 8x8 square of a light weight fabric *I made 2…

DIY Glitter Keys; Getting Crafty

I have a bit of an obsession with glitter. When I was in middle school, I tried out using various glitter eye shadow, eye liner, belts, you name it, I had it. Since then, I’ve toned down my amount of glitter body accessories, and moved on to the more age appropriate accessories (koozies, accent nails, subtle picture frames, and now, KEYS!) I have a bunch of different keys; ones for my gym, my mailbox, my apartment, my parent’s house, ect ect. To keep them easily separated and also add a pop of color to my key ring, I decided to get crafty and glitterfy them! (that should definitely be a real word) These are actually SO simple to make and take about 5 minutes to do! You Need: Your choice of glitter Mod Podge…

Best Weekend Recipes

Did this week go by extremely slow for anyone else? I am so excited for the weekend! I don’t even have anything special planned.. which I’m actually really happy about for once. I recently joined a gym to see if that helps motivate me (so far, mixed results). They do offer unlimited classes, though, so I’m going to try to make it to spin at 9am Sunday morning. They do it in a black light room! How cool is that? Let’s all just keep our fingers crossed I wake up and go… :) When it comes to weekends, I like to keep my recipes simple and comforting. Below, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite weekend recipes & DIY projects! This weekend I’m working a lot with glitter (I promise an abundance of these…

DIY Vanilla Lavender Bath Bombs

It’s hard to believe Christmas is less than 5 days away. Last year, I had no problem getting into the holiday spirit– however, I think it is much easier when you are up north. Down here in Florida, it is currently 67 degrees and I have my windows open. While some may consider this ideal, when it comes to this time of year, I love the seasons! The snow fall, the scarves, starting a fire, drinking hot chocolate.. you get the gist. Of course, Christmas isn’t waiting for me to get into the spirit, so I’m brewing hot tea in my Santa Claus mug and blasting Michael Buble’s Christmas album and hoping for the best. One thing I never need to worry about being in the mood for is baking, crafting, or gift giving!…
