    10 Valentine’s Day DIY’s

    Hi loves❤️ This year I am getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit! When Jordan and I started dating, we were all about this special day.

    3 Ingredient DIY Laundry Soap

    Hi loves❤️ One of my favorite things Jordan’s Mom taught me, was how to make my own laundry soap. I am incredibly thankful for this because it has saved us an astronomical amount of money. When I first started making my own laundry soap, Jordan and I had just moved out on our own, and were both in college. I started by only making a single batch because we did not have much space to store a double batch at the time. This DIY is for a double batch of laundry soap.

    DIY Up-Cycle Candles

    Hi loves❤️ As you all probably know now I LOVE a good DIY. I have an obsession with candles and go through them so quickly. I use them when I take a bubble bath and before I go to bed. I have a tiny secret…. (I may have an entire drawer full of brand new candles) Different scents for different seasons, moods, and occasions. Something I learned from my mother-in-law, Melissa, is how to give candle jars a new life. Since she taught me how to do this, I have been re-purposing candles each time they run out. You can find glass jars all around our house. I wanted to…
