I’m not much of a bag person, but I finally found the perfect purse and couldn’t be any more obsessed with it—it fits all of my favorite daily things!! So I thought I’d share some of my favorite things that you’d find in my purse each day.

For one, my planner… it’s huge so the fact that it fits in there perfectly is a huge plus. And obliviously my favorite lipgloss is in their, my mom always taught me to never leave the house without any and the Melted Peony is amazing!! And the most important thing that I always keep in my purse is the Instax pic of my brother, my sister and I. I don’t get to see them often and having a picture of them makes me feel a little bit closer to them. I don’t like to feel weighed down with my purse so I try to keep it to a minimum, and yes having the Mario Badescu facial spray is necessary to keep me feeling fresh through out the day.

Hope you guys enjoyed—what are some of you’re must haves in your purse! I’m dying to know!! Xx

DIY Shibori Dye Towels

How To Shibori Dye Towel

Hey guys, so a few years ago I saw an Instagram post of towels that were Shibori Dyed, and I DIED. I needed them in my life… but of course I couldn’t find them ANY WHERE and well, finally I decided I could just make them myself—I mean we are living in the generation of DIY!

Anyways… check out how to make them yourself and get with the Shibori trend already! I seriously can’t get enough of it & these towels!!DIY_Towels-22

Things you’ll need:

-How ever many white large, hand, and wash towels you want
-Lots & lots of rubber bands
-A large Bucket
-1 full bottle of Denim Rit Dye
-1/2 bottle of Black Rit Dye
-Lace of your choice (I suggest the whiter the better!)
-Gloves
-Iodine Salt
-Stir Stick (I just grabbed one from the paint department in Lowes)
-2 blocks of wood
-Tarp is optional!

»»Alright so I’m going to say this a few times in this post because I may or may not have messed these up a few times. But guys, make sure you ONLY wash the towels BEFORE dying… do not wash the towels after you are done dying, they’re only show towels so no need or the dye will bleed together!««

Ok now lets chat about how we make these amazing towels:

1) Wash your towels!
2) While the towels are in the wash, boil a gallon of water and put 2 gallons of water in your bucket.
3) Once the towels are done washing, rubber band your towels. I have shown above how I did mine, but feel free to google different ways make up your own! Make sure to not rubber band the hand towels… you want these to be solid.
4) Put the gallon of boiling water in the bucket along (which already has the 2 gallons of regular water) plus 2 cups of salt in the tub and one bottle of the denim dye and 1/2 the bottle of black dye.
5) Stir!!
6) Put your towels in the bucket—make sure the towels are not touching the bottom but also not out of the water. Leave it all in for 8-12 minutes depending on how dark you want the indigo color.
7) Take the towels out and rinse and squeeze with a hose, make sure to leave the towels rubber banded during this part. DO NOT put the towels in the wash.
8) Lay the towels out with the rubber bands still on for a few hours.
9) Cut the rubber bands off and lay the towels out flat to dry over night.
10) Sew the lace trim on your solid indigo hand towels and your ready to to hang your towels!

How cute are these towels all together? I am obsessed with the way they turned out and with my Plants, Beach Spray, and Bath Mat every time I walk into my bathroom I feel like I should be somewhere near a beach. A girl can only dream can’t see?DIY_Towels-3

DIY Hydrating Hair Mask

hairmask

With cooler tempters comes time for some major hydrating—for skin AND hair. My hair dresser Lisa [she is uh-mazing, you can follow her hair IG here] shared a great and easy recipe with me to keep my strands going strong and I just couldn’t keep it a secret!!


What you’ll need [also pictured above] and how to make the hair mask:

 Mash up half an avocado, add 3 Tbsp of coconut oil, 1/2 cup of Milk, 2 Tbsp of honey and 2 eggs throw it in the blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency.  Massage into clean, damp hair. Let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing with water.  If you would like, Lisa suggests to throw on a disposable shower cap and leave it on a little bit longer [which is what I did for about 30 minutes!]

Why Lisa chose these ingredients!

This combination has so many hydrating powers with all the elements found in the ingredients.  The eggs and milk have plenty of calcium which promotes hair growth and is important for proper absorption of vitamin D. And the avocado coconut oil and honey totally amp up moisturizing power.

WOW talk about some major hydrating power players!

 I did this hair mask last week, and I can TOTALLY tell a difference! I love playing with my hair, doing different styles and changing up the color frequently, so I like to make sure to keep it healthy and I am so glad Lisa shared this with me to use when I feel my hair is starting to feel dry!!!

Do you guys have any recipes you love to use to hydrate your hair or even you’re skin? Would love to know & try!
