Buying beauty products on a budget

Buying beauty products on a budget

Being a girl is hard sometimes, and it also can be expensive. (Guys, you better appreciate us when we look good on date night!) If you’re like me, the last thing I want to spend my hard-earned money on is expensive makeup and beauty products. I want the quality, but don’t want to have to shell out the cash.

10 things on my fall wishlist

10 things on my fall wishlist

Thursday is the first day of fall, and I’ve been ready for it since last week! I couldn’t resist the adorable autumn hand towels and the fall scented candles in Target. The leaves are starting to change color, and even though it’s still hot in Mississippi, I can feel the cool air coming! September is a weird month here. I’m over wearing shorts and sundresses but it’s still too warm to wear sweaters and boots. Time to pull out the transition pieces.

Utility vests are an essential layering piece when the weather turns cold. But for the time being (for us southerners), it’s an item that can really jazz up any outfit! I received this utility vest, named the Explorer Vest, from Cabi’s spring 2016 collection.

DIY essential oil scrubs + Infinity Jars

DIY essential oil scrubs + Infinity Jars
In the process of concocting some homemade scrubs. I love this long-neck glass bottle from Infinity Jars for storing olive oil!

I’ve always been a sucker for bath products. Face masks, sugar scrubs, bath salts, you name it, I probably have it stored somewhere in my bathroom. But that’s the problem with guilty pleasures. I often buy too much of them, when I could be DIYing my own!

I made two sugar scrubs this week, and I’m probably never going back to store-bought ones. They are that easy to make, especially with my doTERRA essential oils. And what’s even better? I stored them in these beautiful, sturdy Infinity Jars!
