Post image for All Natural SPF Sun Oil

I’m always on the hunt for natural alternatives to everyday beauty products. As the temperatures start to warm up, the only thing on my mind is long days spent in the sunshine.Read More

Hi Jana! Carrot seed oil hasn't been proven to protect against the sun, but raspberry seed oil has! I researched the natural oils and their SPFs for my girlfriend and found so much misinformation! So I made a ranked list with links to the studies that provided the data. Hope this helps you and your readers! Natural oil SPF list:

I have just made this recipe and used it for the first time I have to say so far so good. It feels super smooth and certainly has a far superior consistency from those awful full of chemicals commercial shop bought versions. All natural and not one nasty chemical. I'm sure there are many versions and for sure this to could be tweaked or cutomised to your own requirements. Thank you so much for a fabulous recipe.

VA Construction Loans -Nov 15, 2014, 3:39PM
All of these perks make the veteran loan a very attractive home-purchasing tool. To see a complete list of eligibility requirements please check the VA web site. Since 1944, when home loan guaranties were first offered under the original GI Bill, the VA has guaranteed more than 19. The VA Loan is the only home mortgage program left that allows 100% financing. There are men and women in various communities who aren't recognized as veterans.
Stated Income Lenders -Nov 08, 2014, 10:19PM
We decided to use both the franchise stores and the Wall Street Journal to sell low-cost state of the art computers. The result will be immense, where many people can continue to feel secure that they can afford the mortgage they signed up for. Unfortunately, this situation will take some time to work through the system despite all the government and Wall Street rhetoric. It is mixed with other minerals and chemicals and used as an inert volume and weight filler in drilling mud. A balance of zero is usually a bad thing because the credit scoring method sometimes treats this like a closed account.

Impressive..!! The all natural bug spray seems to be very effective and help one repel from all kinds of bugs with complete ease. However, one of my friends suggested me that is a website which has all the information about homemade mosquito repellents which help you to get rid of mosquito menace.

Cool! Really usefull and sweet, I definitely agree with that "door stops are usually not so stylish". I made my own too! And got one extra chair 'cause the one is not anymore playing a door stop ;) Thanks!
Rachel -May 30, 2014, 3:36PM

Post image for Instant Photo Transfers With Blender Pens

UPDATE: This post originally ran on March 28th but we’re still in love with this DIY and had to share it again!Read More

Jordan (or anyone else who may know the answer) - I noticed you mentioned that it's difficult to transfer to glass, but I have a couple of questions regarding the process. I know you said to be careful to not move the image, so would I just dab the acetone or pen on it and not rub it in? Or would I just be extra careful rubbing the image onto the glass making sure not to move the whole paper? Also, you mentioned having to seal it with a clear coat. Is this something that I can rub on over it or would I have to get a clear coat spray? Lastly, do you have any other suggestions for a better process of transferring images to glass? The reason I was interested in this process is because there are no white edges of paper or medium transferred as well (if that makes sense) as I've seen in other techniques. Thank you in advance!
Noam -Nov 04, 2015, 3:40PM
Hey, i tried it but it didn't work. I think its because the paper was too thick, Witch paper you used? like how many grams? Thank a head

Post image for 5 Natural Air Fresheners For Spring

This week, I finally smelled it. That delicious scent swirling in the windows and through the house that can only be described as “spring.”Read More

Andrew -Nov 27, 2015, 8:16PM
Cocount and Lime,,,Yes! That's one of the most refreshing spring scents, especially after a long winter winter like we experience in Canada. It immediately puts my on a beach somewhere warm. We've come up with a natural air freshener that you can use anytime you like and is designed to be more personal, as opposed to filling an entire room. We'd love to get your thoughts. Thanks!
Jessy Gothworth -Nov 11, 2014, 8:12AM
What is your opinion about essential oils as natural air fresheners?
