How to Do Your Own Facial

Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis As you’re probably aware, from the frantic jingle bells and red and green slogans bombarding you since August, the holidays are coming. This post is not about shopping for Christmas, or trampling strangers at your closest box store for a Black Friday deal. This post is about giving yourself a gift, while saving money for all those sparkly one of a kind items you’ll be wrapping for friends and family in the near future.

October DIY: Spice Up Your Coffee

October is for long leafy walks on crisp breezy fall days, pumpkins, oversized chunky knit sweaters, and soothing out dried weathered skin with a savory organic coffee scrub to get ready for winter (cozying up to the fire with soft skin never felt so good).  Many coffee lovers get especially excited about the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks around this time of year.

DIY: Dry Shampoo

Happy DIY Friday! We're pretty excited to share our latest favorite DIY Recipe: DIY Dry Shampoo!  Dry shampoo is a great way to keep hair from looking greasy between washes. Over washing strips the natural oils from your hair, and leaves it looking dull and less than shiny. Dabbing a bit of dry shampoo onto the roots of the hair, essentially blots excess oil, and gives your hair a boost in body. People with bangs will especially love dry shampoo, as you can brush a bit onto the root area of the bangs and keep your fringe from looking limp between washes.  Our DIY recipe is super easy, all natural, and works really well! Avoid harmful ingredients like alcohol and...
