DIY: Facial Flower Mist

Do It Yourself:  Facial Flower Mist 

This is the perfect refresher for the extra hot & humid weather that we’ve been having this summer. It’s a super quick, easy project (20 mins, tops!) & adds nourishment for your skin. Plus, it will also set your make-up & add a fresh dewy look.

All that’s needed is:

Clear packing tape, Scissors, pictures or magazines (cut into strips), a spray bottle (I used a travel one that would easily fit in my purse), & essential oils.

There are so many different types of essential oils that are good for your skin.  I used Rose Absolute with jojoba oil, but you could use tea tree (clarifying), lavender (balancing) , peppermint (cleanse), or sandalwood (anti-bacterial.)

For Spray:

1.  Use purified water to fill up the spray bottle.

2.  Add drops of essential oil (I used 10 drops for a 3 ounce travel size) & shake!

For Decorating the Bottle:

1. Take strips of paper & images that you’ve cut out of the pictures or magazines & place in desired position on bottle.

2.  Wrap clear packing tapes over bottle until all of the images are sealed.  For mine I did several layers of tape.

That’s all it takes to create your own inspired facial mist!

Keep on staying inspired & cool this summer!

Xoxo!

Travel Photos: California Dreaming

I recently got back from a trip back to my hometown state, California.  It was incredibly beautiful & looking back at photos I can’t help to feel grateful for my wonderful family.  I spent as much time as I possibly could along the California coastline, soaking in the sunshine (with SPF 90+!) & watching my freckles multiply.  There’s something about the mystery of ocean that makes me stand in awe & truly appreciate this amazing life we’ve all been given.  I hope you enjoy I few snapshots from my adventures!

Btw… I think I love peacocks way too much & still can’t believe I got to hang out with some of these beautiful creatures. Xoxo’s!

DIY: Memory Book

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Today could not be a more perfect day to celebrate the father in your life. I wanted to share with you today a quick and fun way to make a memory book  for someone special whether it be your father or your best friend. It’s a great way to express your love for them and also allows you to express your creative side, too!

I purchased my scrapbook at the local craft store as a pre-built scrapbook created by K & C Company. The pages are all unique and bound into the book so that helped me save on time and money.

I gathered old photos and extras I could use for added detail on the pages to make each page truly one-of-a-kind. You can choose to add whatever you like to your pages such as old ticket stubs, magazine clippings, newspaper articles– the sky’s the limit!

When I began this memory book, I focused on NOT forcing myself to be the “average” scrapbooker and to let myself be completely expressive. My pages are filled with scraps of paper and fun objects that helped bring each to life.

Don’t be afraid to doodle on your pages if you’d like! Make each page as personal as you’d like, and it’s completely up to you to put in as much time and detail as you want.

And don’t worry about making a mess, it happens! Allow yourself the space to get in your creative zone. I think it’s extremely important that you show what you feel inside in this memory book of yours! Below are a few excerpts from my scrapbook I made as a memory book of my father. He was a very special man who loved everyone so much! I had so much fun spending my nights putting together a book of memories of him.

I hope you have a great time making your own book and gifting it to that special someone if you so choose.

Love,

Rosemary
