Who else is ready for spring? I’m so ready! I’m so over the cold and icy weather and not to mention the dry skin that comes with it. I love a good body scrub to use in the shower or bath, but they can be pricey and you don’t always know what ingredients are in it. So this weekend I whipped up a batch of some homemade lavender peppermint sugar scrub. It’s so incredibly easy to make that I can barely call this a DIY. It consists of two ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, plus two essential oils – that’s it! No weird ingredients and no preservatives. I’ve been trying to use more natural products with my skincare so this is a perfect solution. Plus it’s totally customizable! Don’t like the oils I’ve used?

For me, my kitchen is the one area that I’m always trying to keep organized and tidy. It’s the room in our home that gets used the most and having an organizational system helps to keep everything in its place and frees up space. So this weekend I decided to finish tackling this project and the best part is that I did so with mostly dollar-store products!Read More
