Fall, schmall. It might be mid September but here in So Cal it’s 97 degrees. And honestly, even if it was cooler, I believe ice cream is a year-round treat. Are you with me?

DIY Cactus Ring Toss Game

DIY Cactus Ring Toss Game

Looking for a fun family game? This DIY cactus ring toss was a huge hit with my family! We like to play games together often (and we’re also a pretty competitive group so it gets interesting), indoors or out. Since summer is winding down, we’ve been trying to play more outdoor games and that’s what inspired this DIY cactus ring toss game.

The cactus trend is still going strong and I thought making a cactus ring toss game just screamed summer–so viola! It was really easy to make.  We were playing within 30 minutes of putting it together (it’s triple digits with a dry heat so the spray paint basically instantly dried). We put ours in a pot so you can technically play this indoors or out (or even take it to the park for a picnic).  (more…)

DIY Lip Scrub

Sugar scrubs are all the rage, and for good reason. They smell divine and work wonders on your skin. But what about your lips? This DIY lip scrub recipe came to mind because my smackers needed a little extra attention as well.

Make DIY Lip Scrub

This lip scrub is great if you have dry lips.  Made with natural oils that smell great and is simple to make (I promise!). I made a few to have on hand and gave a few away as gifts (thanks to these perfect little lip balm jars I found). I made these using lavender essential oils but you can swap out your favorite scent. I think orange would be great to use in the morning. Sounds fresh! To use the lip scrub, apply a small amount to your lips and then rub around a bit. Rinse off the scrub with warm water and a wash cloth and then apply your favorite lip balm once your done. I like to use mine at night and it helps get lipstick off as well which is a bonus! (more…)

The trick is to fill your mason jars with a dark brown beverage. This could be any dark soda or root beer. Also, iced tea works well. Or, if you want to make these for the grown ups, try a dark beer.  (more…)
