Post image for Yarn Bombed Plants

Ever since I first saw images of yarn bombing, I have always wanted to have a go at it.  Yarn bombing is a form of street art that has spread throughout cities all over the world, and unlike permanent graffiti, it is easy to remove if necessary.  Artists have been choosing anything they desire to yarn bomb, from stand-up telephone booths to even cars. To see such vibrant colors on everyday objects is such a pleasing surprise.Read More

Post image for How To Make Tea

There is something really beautiful about tea…the scent, the dried herbs and flowers, and of course the taste.  In all of my years of drinking tea, I don’t know why I’ve never attempted to make my own blends. Read More

I'm a little late, but can anyone recommend ratios for each ingredient?

Post image for Secret Hand Massage Trick

I don’t get real manicures often, but when I do, the hand massage is always the best part. We use our hands all day, every day, and it’s very necessary to give them a little attention every now and then. The hand massages I’ve gotten at nail salons are all very similar – and there’s one part that always feels the best.Read More -Mar 16, 2014, 10:29PM
Another interesting tip is to try to not vocalize the words. Screen Reading software is easily installed and will talk you through the installation with very little fuss. Basically, these programs send your subconscious messages of positive intent.

I think Mother Teresa is a pretty significant source.

Hello, I'm really trying to be constructive and mean this to be non-agressive, but these monday quotes are sub-par. Lately they are too short and too plain, so it might be cool to add some quotes from significant sources that can be read into more. Just to spice it up. Thanks for listening :)

Post image for For The Love Of Kimonos

This month’s lookbook – Blue Belle – features Japanese-inspired utilitarian layering in beautiful indigo hues. To go along with this trend, I wanted to feature another element of Japanese-inspired fashion that we’re currently loving: the kimono.Read More

I love the first and last one especially! Gorgeous! Gypsy Plunder Vintage

I own two vintage silk kimono... unfortunately, traditional kimono are not meant to be worn without datejime (the sash holding it up, which is not meant to be seen) and obi (the wide, decorative sash), so without them, it is much too long to wear by itself...

Post image for Saturday DO: Meet Someone New

I was on a solo work trip recently, that involved a lot of driving and a lot of time spent alone.  I love time alone, but it can get to you after a while — sometimes it’s nice just to interact with another human being.  Read More

Post image for DIY Jalapeño Muscle Rub?

Have you guys seen the new Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black?” It seems to be all the rage over here! …Although I only first heard of it recently, when our PR assistant was telling me about an episode where Piper (the main character) makes a muscle rub using jalapeño peppers.Read More

Oops. Forgot to mention. Be sure to leave the top off the jar the second time or the alcohol won't evaporate.
Jld -Feb 06, 2014, 7:43PM
Hi. What you and Piper made was a crude version of this very effective salve for both Fibromyalgia and Back pain. The preferred way to make this is with dried hot peppers and alcohol and takes a little time and preparation. Begin with a package of DRIED jalapeños. Break off and discard the stems. Blend for 35-45 seconds (don't get too fine) and pour the blended peppers into a jar. Fill the jar with alcohol, rubbing or drinking, cover the jar tightly and let stand on the kitchen counter until the alcohol is infused with the hot pepper. (At least 24 hours). The alcohol will change color as it is infused. Once the mix is infused, strain the peppers out of the alcohol using cheese cloth or a fine strainer and pour the alcohol back into the jar. Put the jar in a warm sunny place where the alcohol can evaporate. Once the alcohol has evaporated you will have in the bottom of the jar the pepper oil. Now add it to the Shay or Cocoa butter. Use two parts butter to one part oil. If you have sensitive skin, cut back on the oil. The butter is stiffer than the oil so you will have to mix it with a spoon or stick. I use Popsicle sticks. BE SURE TO NOT GET THE PURE OIL ON YOUR SKIN. YOU CAN STORE ANY REMAINING OIL IN THE REFER. I suggest making a tiny amount to begin with until you get the percentage of oil to butter to your liking. Don't use it more than three days consecutively on any one place or it will irritate the skin. You can buy small containers for your preparation at stores that provide soap making ingredients or sell bulk lotions for massage therapists. Many natural foods stores carry containers as well.
