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!

DIY: Hand Painted Plates

We all know how not-so-fun the average white plates can be, don’t we? I recently decided it was time to add a little pep to my plates by adding a few colorful polka dots. This was a very quick and inexpensive project that completely changed the look of my kitchenware!

I purchased white ceramic plates at the thrift store for $1 each and paints at my local craft store for approximately $1 for each bottle. With a paint brush, I hand painted polka dots on the plates and let them air dry. I decided on polka dots because I’m currently obsessed with them, but feel free to do whatever design you’d like!

Once my plates had time to dry, I baked them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and let them cool. I was so excited at how they turned out! Because they are hand painted, it is best to hand wash them to preserve your designs for an extended amount of time.

And now, with my funky new plates, it’s time for a party! I’m so excited to use these plates for many summer gatherings with friends. What a fun summer this will be!

Love,
