Post image for How To Distress Your Boots The Free People Way

I’m the type of girl who will wear boots all year round.Read More

If your boots are uncomfortable, it's because they don't fit your feet. The methods used in the DYI, and ruing the support of the boots. Part of the reason we like distressed boots, is because each mark is a reminder of some activity. We like stuff with a history. If you like that distressed look, put your boots on (and your big girl panties) and live your life with them on. Don't fake it.

Or you could find some distressed ones for less money at a thrift shop :)

The idea came to me in a dream last week.Read More

Do not waste your money on this recipe, our Biotechnology class used it to test the effectiveness of Natural sanitizer compared to chemical and this one didn't work at all. It was an oily mess and a waste of $50
Laurie -Oct 17, 2014, 8:13AM
How long will this last. Does it "go bad" after a certain period of time?

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

Here is a journal article reporting the results of testing hazelnut oil and some other edible oils for their antimicrobial and antifungal properties. We have users using it to help heal wounds. antttps://www.researchgate.net/publication/228504836_Evaluation_of_antibacterial_antifungal_antiviral_and_antioxidant_potentials_of_some_edible_oils_and_their_fatty_acid_profiles
Norm -Jan 27, 2016, 4:48PM
Try pure hazelnut oil. It is moisturizing, quickly absorbed leaving no surface residual shine or sticky feeling, non-staining, has a natural SPF of 15 and is mildly antimicrobial & antifungal. Unadulterated, ours is a clear bright gold color, has a light nutty scent and does not turn solid in the refrigerator as some do. Beware! We have found that the Organic label may mean nothing with regard to adulteration.

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.
