Random, but true. :) Please don't miss out on these two giveaways going on right now! $150 Target Gift Card Giveaway // MacBook Pro … [Read more...]

Lavender Bath Salts

Homemade Lavender Bath Salts

Are you a bath person? I think everybody is either a bath person or not a bath person. I've tended to be a non-bath person, but I think that may just be because I don't have time or take the time to take a bath. I even have a jacuzzi in my house. So, recently I've been exploring healthy, natural health solutions. And I've been reading up on different toxins in most everything I consume. This has led me to start using coconut oil for moisturizer and I just made some homemade body butter to … [Read more...]

Best of Turquoise {February & March}

I registered for this purpley-gray lamp shade when we got married almost 5 years ago. And I never liked it. Ever. I don't really have anything purple in my house and don't love the color. But it sat in our living room for a couple of years before I banned it to a closet.   … [Read more...]
