DIY Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner


This is the recipe that I use to quickly clean my brushes. It is important to take proper care of your brushes, especially because of the bacteria that will grow. I know I want my brushes to last me a long time! All I do is pour a small amount onto some paper towel and wipe off my brush heads each day. That way you start over with clean brushes!


70% Isopropyl alcohol – 2 Tbsp.
Water – 1 Tbsp.

It’s that simple! If you want, you can add scented oils so you eliminate the alcohol smell.



Halloween Wreath

In honor of the start of October and fall, here is a Halloween craft! This super easy to make Halloween wreath is perfect on a budget.  I got everything for the wreath from the dollar store, except the wreath(Michael’s) and the spiders(Walmart).

You will need:

  • Spiders
  • Gauze (3 rolls from the dollar store)
  • Ribbon
  • Skeletons
  • Crow/Raven (I got 2 but decided to use one)
  • Foam Wreath
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors


Start by wrapping the gauze tightly around the wreath.  Use your fingers to pull and fray the gauze to give it a more spooky effect.  Use a dab of hot glue to fasten the ends of the gauze.


I hot glued the spiders and raven.


I also hot glued the skeletons.


And as easy as pie, you have a fun Halloween wreath! Enjoy

Super Easy Glitter Candle

This adorable and super easy to make glitter candle brightens up any room!


All you need…

  • Pillar candles
  • Glitter tape
  • Scissors or X-acto Knife


Before you start, make sure your candle is clean!

Because I am a perfectionist I marked the space between my stripes with a ruler and pencil, but yours can be off-set or totally random!

All you do is take the glitter tape and wrap around the candle as many times as you want!

*Tip: Make sure all of the “seams” are on the same side so that side of the candle can face a wall.


Easy as pie and the candle looks like it could be in a Kate Spade store! 😉




DIY Turquoise Glitter Jars

Using a jar I bought at the dollar store and an old candle votive, I spiced them up using acrylic paint, glitter, and mod podge!


What you’ll need:

  • Mod podge
  • Paint brush
  • Glitter
  • Paper plate
  • Acrylic paint



Here is what I did..


Step 1: Using your choice of color, paint the jar with even brushstrokes. Then place upside down on a flat surface (hence paper plate) to allow any excess paint to drip out. Make sure that it is completely dry before you move on to the next step.




Step 2: Using a small paintbrush (I used a cheap one that came with a paint kit) apply a small amount of mod podge to the rim of the jar.



Step 3: Pour about a tablespoon worth of glitter onto a paper plate.



Step 4: Dunk the jar into the glitter making sure to cover all areas that have been mod-podged. Make sure to let the glitter dry for a while, I placed mine in the hot Arizona sun for about 15 minutes.



And all done!
