Regardless of the convince of email, I will always be an advocate of snail mail. There is something magical about opening up your mail box, pulling out an envelope with a handwritten address, and anticipating what news is nestled inside. Nowadays, weddings seem to be the only event that gets society excited about choosing stamps, modern calligraphy, and envelope liners. I’m here to advocate the use of these design elements in every day correspondence. So refrain from sending your grandmother another happy birthday email and pull out a pen and piece of paper to create something memorable.

DIY Rosewater Witch Hazel Toner

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.

Turmeric and Honey Face Mask

Turmeric Honey Face Mask

Whenever I walk by the Lush store it takes all of my self control to leave without armfuls of bath bombs, lotion bars and face masks. I would love to pamper myself everyday, but when a single bath bomb costs $7 you have to restrain yourself. To tide myself over between Lush splurges I made my own fresh face mask. It only requires two ingredients and I bet you already have them in your pantry!

The best thing about a simple at-home face mask is you can whip it up any time your skin flares up. You don’t need to make a trip into town and spend extra money to wake up the next morning with glowing skin – you just need to mix equal parts honey and turmeric together and voilà! You have the perfect face mask to help reduce redness and leave your skin feeling moisturized.
