Sassy sugar scrub

Inspired by my favorite lip balm: C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve, I wanted to create something just as sweet for my hands.

What you'll need:
1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
10-12 drops of fragrance
8-10 drops of vitamin E oil
5oz leak-proof jar
red food coloring
decorative rose

Where to shop:
Grocery store: olive oil, sugar, food coloring
Hobby Lobby: Crafty Candle Fragrance
Something Fabulous fragrance, 
Vitamin E oil, ribbon, flower accessory
Sally's Beauty Supply: 5oz jar

Mix your ingredients in a bowl separate from your jar. Add more fragrance if olive oil is too overpowering. Add red food coloring so the color matches the scent. 
Spoon ingredients in the jar.

Perfect for a homemade gift, beauty night, or just to simply treat yourself.


Until next time,

Here's to always being your B.E.S.T!

Sassy Sunday

    Sweet and solemn Sunday

Finding comfort in a beaded-feathered turquoise dreamcatcher. Berry, cider, and apple scented candles. New Mexican handmade soap. 

Today, I caught up on some much needed rest. Made a protein inspired breakfast. Cleaned my humble apartment. Experimented with some makeup for a more sultry look for November. Turned pages in a book rather than flipping though TV channels. 

Being a homebody can sometimes be quite productive. I'm actually looking forward to more nights in, layered clothing, hot chocolate, and homemade soup. 

There are two more months left this year. I plan to discover what I can cross off the bucket-list, re-vamp my resolution list, and rekindle some old friendships.

Expert from today's reading: The Art of Racing in the Rain

"That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves."

Let's finish 2012 strong.

Until next time,
