Current Spring Favorites

March 20, 2012

I’m totally in love with the weather as of lately.  And with this weather, out comes my favorite items.  From dainty earrings, to chevron patterns and vintage bags.  Most of the items can be found on (I’m addicted), and the chevron blanket and pillow cases can be found at Harvest Textiles.  I love that they even sell the patterned fabric so you can enjoy a DIY of your own.

I confess…i have a healthy addiction to Pinterest and while venturing on there today, i noticed a moisturizer that i have seen on a couple of occasions but never tried.  So since this is my 3rd time seeing it, i’m going to view it as a sign and just try it already.  I’m all about DIY’s and saving money, so why not?!

Besides the fact that i’m sure it will smell extremely good, it seems perfect for these cold winter days.

The recipe calls for:

16 ounces baby lotion (some may prefer cocoa butter)
8 ounces coconut oil (solid form, not melted)
8 ounces vitamin E cream

Mix together with a handheld mixer until it resembles icing and store it in an air tight container like a Mason jar or a refurbished glass candle holder (which is what i will be doing.  🙂 ).

Wha-la!  3 ingrediets to make 1 amazing moisturizer.  Enjoy!
