July is such a fun month. Growing up in the United States the main event is on the 4th where everyone usually has cookouts and fireworks. This year, I’m not sure that’s going to happen, but that’s normally what we look forward to. This is also ideal beach weather in my opinion. Coming from Florida I just LOVE warm weather and sleeping with the windows open and nice stuff like that. So for this month, I found five really fun and interesting articles from around the web and I hope you enjoy them!
Right now, it’s not feeling much like summer when you have to wear a mask, or maybe even gloves to go out. But nothing is stopping you from having a little summertime fun in your home and this delicious Pot-Pourri is just what you need.
July is iconic summer weather here in Massachusetts. It’s usually pretty warm (except for that one time a few years ago we actually had a cold snap and I wore a sweater), and there are lots of fun things to do. For the summer I wanted to create something really fun that would be a way I could preserve my memories of nice beaches, as well as functional. I loved the color (and the taste) of this wine which I got at Trader Joes, and I decided to give it a fun summertime decoration and I LOVED how it turned out. So, of course, I had to share it with you!
We have been spending LOTS of time at home, and that has affected people in different ways. In today’s post, I’m going to talk a little about how the home is a reflection of our own psychology as well as talk about a really awesome book I’ve read recently called “The House Witch” by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. If you’ve found your time at home tainted or downright awful because you’ve been stuck in it for so long, this post is FOR YOU!
This is your Five Awesome Finds for June! These are articles that I find throughout the month that I think are either, helpful, informative, entertaining, or just plain fun. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and by the way, number 3 was incredibly helpful during this time especially.
What I thought was going to be a fun easy little project turned out to be so much more. This was seriously like a bad romance. It was fun in the beginning, then little disappointments added up, then it came down to sheer commitment to finish the project. Now as I sit here writing this, I’m looking at this beautiful little thing I created and kind of wanting to do it again…kind of…maybe…I’m going to show and tell you about its twists and turns and all that went into such a little package and YOU can decide if you have enough of your life to
waste spend on gluing, shaping, and even soldering micro-sized things to create this. The only advice I can offer should you chose to go on this journey is “Take your time and Good luck”.
Are you missing the mall so much that you want your home to smell as good as Williams-Sonoma did? Well, you’re in luck! This pot-pourri is gonna do just that. You might not be able to go to the mall, but at least your home will smell fabulous!
Nothing smells better in the morning than coffee…and I drink decaf!!! Coffee just has a naturally invigorating smell so I’m really happy to show you how to make this Coffee Soap! Not only does it smell fantastic, but the ground coffee acts as a mild exfoliant to give your skin a bit of a wake up as well! It’s currently my husband’s favorite soap!
I find Picasso Jasper to be a really artist stone. I’m not just saying that because of the name either. After making my first Mala with this stone, I just loved how it looked with all the deep colors and it honestly made me feel inspired to get out my old sketchbooks again. But that’s not the only reason this stone is amazing!
Once a month I like to release a post that highlights some fun, interesting, inspiring, or uplifting things I found while perusing the web. These are my top five for this beautiful month of May! I hope you enjoy this, and for the record, number 4 was my favorite!
