DIY Lip Balm Recipe

Never again will I be buying my lip balm from the store, because I found an amazing DIY alternative! It contains Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter so you know it's great for your lips, and it made such a big batch that I will not be running low anytime soon! Which is great because this has become my all time favorite balm recipe. Check out this amazing recipe under the DIY and Crafts Tab!

Many Blesings,

Zesty Chicken Fingers!!

It's been a long time since my last post, but I finally found some time to post new cooking tutorial, it's a homemade recipe for Zesty Chicken Fingers so go and check it out under the Cooking Tab (do it, it's super delicious!)

Also in other news I recently subscribed to Birchbox and I plan on reviewing the beauty items that I receive from my first box later this month, and if it's a service that I enjoy and get a lot of great products from, I will end up doing monthly reviews.

Have a lovely day!

Great Discoveries!

I found an amazing online website that allows you to upload and edit photos as well as create graphic designs for free, so you're definitely going to see this implemented into the blog a whole lot (once I figure it all out that is). I also posted a super easy and delicious homemade strawberry short cake recipe to the Cooking Tab, so be sure to go and check it out!

TGIF, have a great weekend!

I finally finished my latest reviews and the Beauty Tab should be back online. I reviewed four items that caught my eye while shopping at my local Ulta Beauty store this last week. All were products that I had never tried before, but I had a lot of fun sampling these new items and I hope you enjoy!

P.S. I'll hopefully have a new cooking tutorial up within the next few days!

Early Morning Sky

Gotta love those early mornings at the hospital, at least the sky was pretty today! 

Every day might not be good, but there is something good in every day.

DIY Lotion Bars

During the heat of summer your skin can really take a beating, from sunburns and chlorine exposure to just an overall feeling of dryness. That's why this week I decided to do some crafting and made my own homemade solid lotion bars! I had a lot of fun with this project and I hope that you will too, so check out the recipe under the DIY and Crafts tab!
