Candy Pumpkin DIY

I mostly like Halloween for the candy.  When I was little my Aunt Carolyn handed out giant candy bars and Tootsie Roll Lollipops to her trick-or-treaters.  She was everyone’s favorite house in my community.  I thought it would be fun to create a twist on the typical trick-or-treat candy bowl that is socially distanced and everyone can get their own…

DIY Beauty Treatments

img 7296 1
I’m a sucker for a good beauty treatment.  The quarantine has kept me out of my routine and I have the hair, skin, and nail blahs.  My skin (especially hands) and hair dry out and feel icky.  I prefer products and treatments that are more natural because I’m not sure how I feel about applying so many chemicals on my…
