How to Make a Mini Bar with a Toilet Storage Caddy

I can remember sitting on my couch watching the Kardashians and admiring their lushes home bar. My “bar” at this point was just a sad mini-fridge and looked very…college dorm-like.

How to Make This Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

When I lived in Florida one thing I can remember seeing in tourist shops were boxes of beautifully wrapped grapefruits. They would be nestled like big golden eggs in the usually green grassy crimped paper, and I remember not understanding why anyone would buy those things when we could just go to the store and buy them. Now I live up here in Massachusetts and I get it.

I’ve read some wonderful books and some downright awful ones, but this book is in a world all of its own. The Art of Happiness is life-changing and I’m about to tell you why.
