An Alternative Way to Curl Your Lashes

Here is an alternative way to curl your lashes if you are at all like me - afraid that your kids will bump you while you are pinching and curling your lashes and then a chunk of lashes get ripped out. What a scary thought! I found this idea while watching Twist Me Pretty on YouTube so I had to share. Guys, she helps me do my hair every week. I love her channel!


So, instead of pinching to curl your lashes, you simply apply mascara and then press the form of the eye lash curler at the root of the lashes or around the lashes so they curl up while the mascara dries. Brilliant I tell you. The only thing you need to watch out for is smudging the mascara onto your lid, so just be careful and kind of shut your eye lid a little bit while you press. If you would like to watch a demonstration of this technique, here is the Twist Me Pretty Makeup Tutorial. Enjoy!

DIY: Essential Oil Sunburn Relief Spray



This spray feels sooooo good on a sunburn! My Mother-In-Law has taken all the essential oil classes and it comes in really handy for me when anyone in my family needs help. This week, we stayed at our  little beach for too long without sunscreen. A quick call to my Mother-In-Law and we had the solution.


In a squirt bottle:
4oz of water
25 drops of lavender
10 drops of peppermint

Spray on your sunburn as often as you need and enjoy the nice cool, soothing relief that this spray has to offer.
