Allergy Relief Lavender Lemon Bath Bombs

This time of year is full of so many things that drive people’s allergies pretty crazy. My seasonal allergies are all over the place this time of year. My nose gets really stuffed up, I sneeze a lot, and my eyes water constantly. I need some way of relieving these symptoms and one way that I have really loved getting allergy relief is with lavender oil and lemon oil. That is when it hit me that I need to make a bath bomb with those essential oils to create an allergy relieving bath bomb!

Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

My husband used to be an elementary school teacher. It was always interesting to see what kinds of gifts his students would bring him. A lot of times, he would end up with loads of candy. Candy is nice, but there is only so much candy one person can take before it gets a little old! When it was time to come up with a gift to give my daughter’s preschool and dance teachers, I knew I wanted to give them something practical and personal. That’s when we came up with this darling handwritten water bottle teacher gift idea!

Vanilla Rose Salt Scrub Beauty and the Beast Blog Hop

If you don’t use a scrub while you are in the bath or the shower, you are seriously missing out. I am obsessed with scrubs! I use a scrub every single day and I love how soft and smooth it makes my skin feel. I have also loved creating my own scrubs and finding scents that I love together. This vanilla rose scent has quickly become a favorite of mine!

I was three years old when Beauty and the Beast was released when I was 3 years old. As any three year old would be, I quickly became obsessed with the movie. I even sang a song from the movie in a talent show with my best friend in kindergarten! My lifelong love of Beauty and the Beast is why I am so excited for the upcoming release of the new Beauty and the Beast movie! That is why I decided to share this vanilla rose salt scrub with all of you that is inspired by Beauty and the Beast!

Stress Relieving Bath Salts

We all have stress in our lives! It is an unfortunate part of life, but it is something that we all deal with. One thing that helps me when I am starting to feel overwhelmed is taking a nice, hot bath. I have been adding a few different essential oils to my bath. I have found that when I mix lavender and grapefruit essential oil together, it creates just the right stress relieving bath for me. I decided to make stress relieving bath salts that are infused with lavender and grapefruit so that I can have them on hand when I am in need of a stress relieving bath!

Shrinky Dinks Ornaments Kid’s Gift Idea

Getting gifts for your kids to give to their friends for Christmas can get SO expensive! My daughter really wanted to give her friends something for Christmas, but when you are four years old the concept of money isn’t quite there. We finally agreed on giving her friends some handmade ornaments. I was trying to come up with a cute ornament that could be personal, but easy and cost effective as well and I remembered Shrinky Dinks! I used to make different creations with Shrinky Dinks as a kid and I knew they would be perfect to make ornaments with too! The best part is that each ornament ended up costing about 50 cents each to make!

To make these, I used the print and cut option on my Silhouette Cameo machine. This made making these incredibly easy because I printed them out and just had the Silhouette cut them out for me and they looked great! Of course, if you don’t have a Silhouette Cameo, you could print off your own design on the Shrinky Dinks and cut them out yourself, just know it will take you much longer and they won’t look as crisp. But it can be done! [Read more…]

Pink Scalloped Dresser Makeover

We are in full blown nesting mode at our house, trying to get ready for baby number two. Part of our plan to make room for baby was to move the queen sized bed in the guest bedroom into Harper’s room so that the guest bedroom could become baby’s room. The guests will still get to sleep in the queen bed when they come to visit and Harper will sleep on the air mattress. It took a little convincing but she finally got excited about getting a big bed. Part of getting her excited was telling her that we could give her room a little makeover at the same time. We pretty much just decorated her room since we have only been in this house for a year, but there were a few other things we could do to make her feel like this was a special experience for her and she wasn’t just getting kicked out of her little bed. One of the things that we decided to do was refinish her dresser. I LOVE how it turned out!
