Mexico Video!

June 18, 2017

I finally finished the video of our trip to Mexico! I’m not sure if you guys like watching these, but I love having them because I can remember specific moments so much better! I also love filming them too! I didn’t get a tonne of footage of our excursions as I didn’t take my nice camera with me as we were doing a lot of water activities, but I hope you enjoy it anyway! If you haven’t seen my posts on our trip you can see them here, here and here!! Hope you enjoy!

10 Things!

June 12, 2017

How was your weekend? I honestly can’t remember much of mine it was so jam-packed! I did go see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with my friend and I thought it was really funny! I also bought all the Harry Potter films so I am slowly working my way through those!! I have felt SO lazy lately, I can tell I am ready for summer!! Anyway, here are 10 things!!

1. Lately I have been dreaming about what I want my house to look like when I finally buy a place. I’m dreaming of all the design I can do and it’s making me want it to happen soon!!

2. I want to force myself to read more! I am thinking of doing a summer reading book club. Is that something you readers would be interested in?

3. I desperately need to purge my wardrobe again! The last time was when I did this post… that was far too long ago!

4. My face has been soaking up the hydra-essential face cream by Clarins! I love it so so much!

5. Does anyone hate cleaning makeup brushes but then love it when it’s done? I cleaned mine the other day and now it makes me want to do it more.

6. I can’t wait for our next holiday!!! It’s coming up in August and it couldn’t come sooner! We’ve been planning for so long!

7. I teach a baby music class and now all the babies want to be rocked by me and it is so cute!!! I get so many hugs and it just warms my heart!

8. Our garden we planted is filling in and I can’t wait to eat it all! I am gone most of the summer so hopefully there will still be stuff left for me once I am home!

9. Trying to plan a trip to visit a friend who is having a baby, hopefully all works out! I really want to see her 🙂

10. Got my eyelash extensions re-done yesterday! Apparently my eyelashes grow a tonne! I love having extensions and not having to worry about applying mascara. My eyelashes are naturally longer but not having to put on makeup all the time is amazing!!

Have a good rest of your Monday!!

Floral Body Butter DIY!

June 7, 2017

I was lucky enough to get the slightest tan while on holiday a few weeks ago…and as much as I’d love it to stay, if my skin is dry I’ll lose it faster than I gained it. I’ve been trying out different lotions but wanted something that was good for my skin and kept it hydrated longer. I decided to try my hand at body butter and just like so many of these beauty DIYs I do, it is so simple!!! I’m loving using this right now after a shower or bath just to put some hydration back into my skin! I find it works best if you are able to apply at night time so you can let it really soak into your skin while you sleep. Here’s what to do!

What You Need:
– 1/4 cup coconut oil
– 1/8 cup shea butter
– 1/8 cup cocoa butter
– 1/2 cup almond oil
– 10 drops lavender essential oil
– 10 drops rose essential oil

What To Do:
1. Melt all ingredients in a double boiler on the stove.
2. Once melted, pour into a bowl and place in freezer for about 10-15 minutes (or until just about to harden).
3. When mixture is close to hardening, remove from freezer and transfer to mixer. Using the whisk attachment, whip the mixture until it has stiff peaks.
4. Transfer to jar and voila!
