What I Wore Today


Candle Crazy

I've had fun doing some DIY things for you guys but today I am going to talk about candles, as you can tell from the title!  I love candles, mostly the sweet smelling ones. I normally find one candle I like and use it until I feel like it's time for a new smell. I wasn't even looking for candles today. I went to Target to look for some shelves since I'm in the process of redecorating my room. I happened to pass the candle section on the way to the shelves and ended up getting three candles as well.

 Sweet Spun Sugar is the perfect name for this candle because it describes it so well! It does smell like sugar but it doesn't smell foody, I really don't like walking in to a room and smelling "blueberry cobbler" in candle form. This is a light sweet smell that won't overtake a room, and I love the light pink color of the candle!

Sugar blossom is also a sweet smell but it is more floral. I loved it because it smells like my Frilly Lily Sugar Lily perfume!…

DIY: Beauty Day

Today I made a few homemade, beauty themed type products. I made two sugar scrubs and I had some pumpkin left so I used the rest for a face mask. Caffeine is known to stimulate blood circulation. The pumpkin moisturizes and tightens your skin wonderfully! Don't forget to put these in airtight containers!

Mocha Spice Sugar Scrub

1 cup sugar (any kind)1 tbsp ground coffee1 tbsp cocoa powder1 tsp cinnamonpinch of nutmeg1/4 to 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or other light oil like grapeseed or jojoba)

Pumpkin Face Mask
1 cup pumpkin2 to 3 tbsp ground almonds1 tbsp honey1 tbsp milk*Don't forget to refrigerate this because it has milk in it!
I soaked my almonds in water overnight before doing this so that they would be softer and easier to grind.
Leave the mask on for about 10-15 minutes, wash off with warm water and you will be glowing!
