I make up a concoction of eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil and water in a spray bottle and spray the sheets every couple of days. Keeps the cats off the bed at least for an hour or so...I also leave my wardrobe doors open on fine days and widely open all the windows plus I have some small wooden balls I soak in essential oil (when I remember). For times when I feel less prosaic I have another spray bottle of gardenia and water which I generally just spray around the room. Lovely, nearly exotic and not too expensive.

The soap in the drawer is genius! Going to have to try that. Lavender is definitely a calming aromatic. Great ideas you've posted. Thanks!

Post image for Tricks To Naturally Lengthen Your Eyelashes

On a day-to-day basis, the only eye makeup I wear is mascara. I naturally have long eyelashes, so a few swipes and I’m good to go. People tend to ask me what my trick is, and without having any specific one, it made me curious as to what natural remedies there actually are for lengthening your eyelashes. After doing some research, I found out that most of the tricks are fast and extremely simple. You won’t notice results right away, but if you use these tricks often, your eyelashes should start to lengthen and thicken overtime! Read more »

Hey I'm Olivia with the Vaseline what part of the comb do you put Vaseline on with
Lori D. -Jan 09, 2015, 6:51PM
Olive oil sounds great but Vaseline is a petroleum based product so I wouldn't advise using that for anything, especially near the eyes. Alba makes a great unpetroleum jelly which is just like Vaseline, only safe to use on your body. http://smile.amazon.com/Alba-Botanica-Un-Petroleum-Multi-Purpose-Jelly/dp/B000OO7546/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1420847417&sr=1-1&keywords=alba+unpetroleum+jelly

Post image for Going Makeup-Free – For The First Time In 11 Years

Ever since I discovered the joys of mascara and eyeliner back in middle school, I’ve worn makeup every day. Every single day for the past 11 years — except for a small handful of times when I was sick or just wasn’t leaving the house. I love makeup. I think it’s so much fun getting all dolled up, or even just adding a touch of blush here and a little mascara there to draw some attention to some of my features.

What I don’t love, however, is the feeling that I need to wear makeup. I know that beauty comes from within and that I’m still me no matter what product is on my face, but somehow over the years I seem to have developed a dependency on it. Read more »

Every year during the month of February I go makeup-less partly because it's the shortest month, and partly because it's the month of love, not just to others, but also towards oneself
CC -Jan 31, 2014, 8:16PM
It's a Friday night & I am reading old posts- LOL. I absolutely love this article. It is so real & embodies exactly what Free People is about. My Monday will be sans makeup. Thanks for the post- so authentic!

Post image for 4 Ways To Whiten Your Teeth

There are so many products available these days to whiten your teeth, but they can be incredibly pricey. I’ve tried certain methods, but the results never seem to last (which probably also has to do with the amount of coffee I drink). Read more »

I knew about strawberries, but hadn't heard carrots before. I love carrots a lot and I am even more glad I eat a lot of carrots. I wonder just how many meals I can incorporate carrots into.

Post image for Hair Love: Accessorizing The Low Bun

Lately we are all about the low bun here at Free People. I love the effortless look of hair pulled back and knotted in a messy bun at the back of the neck – and how it appears very chic and put-together at the same time. To create a little more interest, I love adding in accessories like hair combs and bun picks. Read more »

I love this idea. I have scraps left of two old blushes that I hate to just throw out: Nars Orgasm and Bobbi Brown pale pink. These will make tinted lip glosses. Thanks for the post!

Post image for Beauty Trick: Make Nail Polish In Any Color

When it comes to nail polish, I often have a hard time finding colors that suit me. I feel that I can always find a ton of bright, pretty colors, but my red hair and pale skin always have me wishing for earthy greens and browns, which just aren’t as abundant in nail colors. I recently discovered a way to make my own nail polish in any color, and it totally blew my mind. It’s so easy! All you need is clear nail polish and eye shadow! Read more »
