  • DIY Vintage Bottle Lamp

    Image 1

    Spring has brought with it an insatiable need to refresh. I’ve kicked it into high gear — rearranging, discarding, and filling in where needed. I finally decided that our “this will do for now” lamp had run its course. I wanted to come up with something tasteful and inexpensive to replace it with, so I looked amongst the materials I already had and found this great vintage bottle. A little google search revealed that Lowes sells DIY bottle lamp kits, and there I was, I was in business. A run to the store and 20 minutes later, I had a brand new lamp and a sigh of relief — my home was one step closer to the refresh I needed.

    If you’re in need of a new lamp, this DIY is a great idea for you too. I’m sure you have an old bottle on hand that could be made useful. So here you go, here’s how!

    I’m all for a good smelling home, but the one thing I despise are chemical air fresheners. I hate the feeling that I’m inhaling god-knows-what, and I prefer a beautiful natural smelling home. In place of Febreeze, I turn to incense, sage sticks, and palo santo. Today, I want to share a quick incense DIY perfect for this time of year. As spring moves in, there is nothing more refreshing than a rosebud scented home.

  • Chicory, A Coffee Alternative

    Image 1

    Caffeine, despite the fact that many of us drink it this way, is one of the worst things to consume first thing in the morning. After a full night’s sleep, our bodies get confused with the huge stimulating kick. The caffeine gives a surge of energy, and then inevitably results in a crash later on. Not to mention, it causes food to speed through our intestines, diminishing our nutrient absorption and dehydrating our bodies.

    There is a happy medium, however. Chicory, is a great substitute for coffee. While containing small amounts of caffeine (50-75mg per cup), it’s nowhere near the 250mg of caffeine in one cup of drip coffee.

    So hey, why not try it out?
