How to Make this Tropical Coconut-Lime Soap WITH A VIDEO!!!

I love really unique soaps. I also like saving money and you can do both! I made this Tropical Coconut Lime Soap a few weeks ago and I’ve been using it in the shower and it’s been amazing. It’s very hydrating on the skin and feels like I got it from a store at the mall. The smell of coconut and lime is so invigorating that it’s just perfect for morning showers.

Actually, my original plan was to write about how to throw a fun Cinco De Mayo party, but with everyone practicing social distancing or being asked to stay in their homes (like me right now), I thought it would be best to change up my plan. So hopefully this inspires you to add a new hobby to your repertoire.

The Annual Japanese Festival in Boston

A few years ago, I had a fantastic and crazy 8-hour layover in Narita, Japan. My husband and I tried our best to make use of the time, and we headed to Tokyo. It was beautiful, and crazy and crowded yet mysteriously clean. We went to the iconic Robot Restaurant then ate some super late night dinner (which we chose from a picture menu) at the Japanese equivalent of Denny’s and then dragged ourselves to our hotel and crashed until the next morning before our plane flight.

If you can’t get to Japan this year, but find yourself in Boston during the 25th and 26th of this month, you can get a taste of what Japanese culture is like!

How to Make this Refreshing Lemon Topiary Centerpiece

Spring is a beautiful time of year for me. Honestly, the winters in Massachusetts can be really bad with tons of snow and blizzards, so when the first hints of spring start showing like little green blades of grass I get excited.

I’ve seen pictures of this Topiary for your dinner table floating around online and I love the freshness it has. So I decided to make one myself and share how you can make one of your own! It’s a nice fresh looking centerpiece that you can use to decorate your dining room table. It didn’t take a lot of materials either.

So if you’re looking to bring in some of that spring time flare into your home this is perfect for you!
