DIY Rosewater Witch Hazel Toner

My love for experimenting with homemade skin care started at a young age. I would tear out DIY face mask recipes from magazines, save them in a binder (old school Pinterest!), and test them out through the summer. My face was usually dripping with banana and oatmeal concoctions that left my skin less than radiant, but it was my first taste of making my own beauty products and I fell in love.

Since then, I’ve move on from riffling through my mother’s pantry cupboards and have tested out recipes that have become staples in my skin care routine such as this rosewater witch hazel toner. As DIYs go, this one is as easy as they come. After a bit of steeping and mixing, you are ready to spritz your face with the toner and start reaping the many benefits of rosewater and witch hazel. This toner will help tighten pores, fade blemishes, and balance out your skins oil production.

Berry Bruschetta Month in Review: August, 2018


On a sunny day you will find me in the fields. ✨ Growing up on a dairy farm in the countryside I spent a lot of time outside. After school my siblings and I would feed calves, head inside for dinner and a few hours of homework, then trek back down to the barn help with milking shifts. It didn’t matter if it was blazing hot in the middle of summer or frigid cold in the depth of winter, we were outside. ✨ Now that I’ve moved off the farm, life looks a lot different. Being a graphic designer requires sitting in front of a computer for hours on end, but my soul aches to be outside. Luckily, I’m able to schedule breaks throughout the day to step away from my computer screen and enjoy nature. This allows me to get some fresh air, reconnect with my creativity, and return to my work with fresh eyes. ✨ What do you do during the day to hit the refresh button?
Woke up with a pep in my step! I couldn’t believe it was already Thursday…until Ian kindly reminded me it is actually Wednesday. In an instant, I went from being gleeful to feeling like the cruel universe added a day to my week. To keep my spirits high, I chose to treat myself to a mid-day coffee break at @anodynecoffee. Double tap if coffee is the magical elixir that can turn your day around ☕️🙌💕
Easing into the work week after an incredible Packer win last night! My day is full of chai tea, calming Spotify playlists, and an afternoon walk to recenter and get my mind ready for a busy week.
Cozying up with the fall @magnolia journal issue while I wait for the rain showers to pass. 🌦
