Post image for How To Make All-Natural Foundation With Sunscreen

When it comes to makeup, foundation is one thing you definitely want to make sure is made of natural ingredients. An abundance of foundations on the market are filled with not-so-natural ingredients, potentially harming more than just your skin. But not this one.Read More

Hello! I would just like to note that cocoa butter can clog pores while she's butter is non-comedogenic. If you are like me with acne prone skin, I would suggest makeing it with no cocoa butter. Great recipe!

Thank you for the post! I would try this at home, I think it's better to make your own than buy in the market because you can assure that it is safe to use.

Post image for Herb-Infused Grapefruit Face Toner

As soon as spring hits, I become taken over by this incredible urge to incorporate fruits into everything I do. I want to eat them, I want to drink them, and I want to incorporate them into my beauty routine.Read More

I having been using the recipe for oily/combination skin for almost a year and I love it. Also, I left the herbs in and kept the jar in the fridge, only taking out a little at a time, and it kept a LOT longer than 1-2 weeks. This is my only toner now.

Why is it that dried flowers and herbs must be removed? I was wanting to make a toner with witch hazel, essential oils and some dried lavender flowers but wanted to leave them in for looks. Wouldn't the other ingredients act as preservatives to keep the flowers from molding?

Post image for DIY Mermaid Spray For Beachy Waves

Salt on the skin, sun kissing the nose, piecey waves in the hair. A day spent in the spa has absolutely nothing on a day spent on the beach.Read More

Okay, first I love the shells! Even though they are just for show, I feel like they add something that just makes the whole spray more natural. haha. Lavender is really great, but I am wondering what other options I can use? What about season spray scents like peppermint? Would that be too much? I guess there is only one way to find out! Thanks for this. Your pictures are incredible - love love love! Great DIY Sea Salt Spray.

Lydia - It doesn't take much for coconut oil to melt. Just the heat of your hands will do it. If you keep the spray in your bathroom where it's usually humid it should pretty much stay liquid :). I keep a tub in my pantry in my kitchen and it never returns to solid form.

My candle also doesnt stay lit! The wax sometimes catches fire but that's it. Is there a specific type of surfwax we should be using? I think I used cold water...

I'm using Sex Wax, but I've tried two different wicks and they both burned out right away. What kind of wick did you use? Thanks!

My biggest problem when traveling? …Wrinkly clothes.Read More

Fabulous! I use all the unscented, fragrance free products. What a great idea though. However, I only pack clothing that barely wrinkles and I do roll some clothing. In fact, almost everything I buy needs no ironing. I do the shower trick if needed and it does work. After I tighten the closures in the suitcase I then carefully fold jackets, including leather on top and they come out great. Usually on travel day I wear an outer garment - coat, jacket - so I don't have to pack it.

Post image for DIY Pressed Flower Phone Case

Pressed flowers and leaves are something I just can’t seem to get enough of. It’s gotten to the point where, at any given point, I have a bunch hidden between the pages of various books in my home just waiting for a time I’ll want to use them. This DIY is my favorite way to use pressed flowers yet.

Oh the joys of the paper pot press. I actually hadn’t the slightest clue what a pot press was until just recently, when our friends over at Terrain granted us one, along with no other instruction than to do with it as we pleased… Now I’m in love.

Homemade paper tugs at my heart like no other. It’s delicate, beautiful, and thoughtful. I love the time and effort that gets put into making such a simple object; an object that we often take for granted.Read More
