DIY

  • Fall is a time of year that signals change. According to the ancient studies of Ayurveda the energies around us are shifting from pitta to kapha. Our bodies have stored up so much pitta from the fiery summer, and we need to cleanse it out to prepare our constitutions for a slower, cooler, sweeter winter.

    There are so many cleanses out there, but what I’m going to introduce you to today is an Autumn Ayurveda cleanse. This is not a starvation diet. It will not make you skinnier. We’ll take a minute to be with ourselves, to slow down, to be selfish; so that the rest of the year we can be active and giving.

    You know those perfect homes, the ones decked in plants that you constantly see when scrolling your Pinterest feed? Yeah, I think we all know them. And I think we all sit there in envy of the luxurious plant hangers that seem to cost a fortune everywhere you look.

    A little secret? All it takes is a couple hours of channeling your inner childhood self, remembering those hemp necklace stitches you used to be so fond of, and putting them to use. It really is so simple.

    Hello summer! July is officially here, and with it, the time for outdoor picnics, beach days, and backyard entertaining. It gets hot, for sure, and we’re always looking for the next best way to cool off. That’s where ice cubes come in, but we’re not talking about just any ice cubes. We’re talking about ginger chamomile ice cubes. These babies are the easiest thing to whip up, and they’re a big crowd pleaser. Throw them into a cocktail, iced tea, or a smoothie and you won’t regret it. Here’s how to make them!

    Making your own soap is surprisingly easy, and a very satisfying thing to do. I like making this blend and having it on hand anytime my skin feels like it needs some extra love. You can substitute any essential oil that you’d like, but I happen to like lavender for the soothing nature that it provides.

    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.

    In the winter months our bodies crave hydration. The cold air dries out our tissues, and there is only so much hydration from the inside can help. In addition to drinking water, we have to apply extra goodness from the outside.

    The holiday of love is upon us! Say what you will, but I love Valentine’s Day. I loved it when I was single, and I love it now that I’m in a long-term relationship. It’s an excuse to express one of the world’s most important emotions. Love for your mother, for your friends, for you significant other, or anyone who supports you through this life. Where would we be without love?

    I’ve been making a concerted effort to avoid wheat lately, but unfortunately that means cutting out one of my favorite foods, bread. Learning to live without sandwiches or toast is something that takes some getting used to. To help fill the void, I began looking into alternatives, and was really excited when I found this “Life Changing Loaf of Bread” from one of my favorite food bloggers, Sarah of My New Roots.
