Domestic Diva: Takes on the Dining room

I have to say I usually put flowers on the table. I recently had to do a photography assignment using cool colors. I came up with the idea to use a vase with beads in it. Then I places a bracelet on the base of the vase. I believe I paid $.50 for the vase. The bracelet was from a company called inpink. I just love them! Then one set of beads is from my daughters collection. The shell necklace was from goodwill and the other necklace was one I made. I though it looked pretty neat.

It is also a nice way to display your jewelry when you aren’t wearing it. I do have to say that my daughter had the most fun making her table decor. She loves to put stuff in water so this was a super idea. You could do barbie shoes and glitter for a girl party or you could put in marbles or cars for a boy party. I never thought water and some jewelry could look so cool. If you like my image you can see how I created it on my Pinterest post. I wrote about how I created the Pinterest worthy Look.

What are some ideas of things you would place in water to create unique table decor?

Domestic Diva: All Natural Face Mask

Okay simply put. I love beauty products. I have a little girl and she is so interested in lip gloss and creams and she is only 3. I decided that what I use on my face should be more natural. I also thought how fun would it be to make our own masks and then use them. The good news is if my daughter or sons who have joined in wanting to use the mask happen to taste it that is perfectly fine since it is all natural. This is a very inexpensive mask that uses what you have in your home already.

It is easy to make you will need

1/4 cup of plain oatmeal

1/4 cup of water

2 tsp of honey

See how easy this is to make:

 

I blend my oatmeal so it is fine and then add the water and the honey. You do not have to and if my kids are overly excited I will skip that part.

You spread the mixture over your face and next. Then leave it on for 15 minutes. You will need to wash it off with warm water. The honey helps fight acne but I do not have any and it is safe and effective for my normal skin.
