LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Haul

This week I did a little shopping and stopped by the LUSH Cosmetics store!!! I heard about LUSH, but have never tried it. I watched numerous YouTube videos on reviews about their products. Before you even walk into the store you can see all of the wonderful goodness through the window. Some of their bath products look as if you are in a candy store. They have bath bombs to shampoo for your hair.

I actually purchased the Buffy which is a exfoliant and moistourizer. I tried it in the store and this is definitley for people who do no like to put on lotion on these hot summer days. Your skin will defenitley stay moisturized all day. I also got a piece of the Rockstar soap and the Fig and Leaves soap.

Don't get me wrong I was a bit taken back by the price of their products. While searching on YouTube I saw videos on how to cut the soap into smaller managaeble pieces so that they last longer. I am going to cut mine today so that I can salvage as much of it as I can. I heard that they melt fast in water. For the price I want to keep it for as long as possible. I think next time I will try some of their Bath Bombs and Bath Bubbles. Overall it's a really cool store and do know I will go back. Check them out you can order online if there isn't a store near you. LUSH Cosmetics

100th Day of School

My daughter had to wear something for the 100th day of school. At first I was thinking what in the world is she going to wear. So of course, I let my fingers do the walking and hit the WWW. I found numerous projects, that I didn't really have time for. Although there were a few that didn't really didn't take up much time such as making a necklace out of 100 Cherrios or Fruit Loops. I couldn't just settle for average. So I stayed up late the night before she had to wear the item and made her a shirt of 100 ribbons. Of course before I completed the shirt I had to get her permission. There is nothing like an angry 3 year old in the morning when they don't want to wear what you have chosen for them to wear. So after I got her permission here is how it turned out.



Junk Drawer Organization

I was inspired by what I saw over at A Bowl Full of Lemons and Organizing Junkie. They have tons of organizing projects going on right now and tips to help get your home organized. I am so busy with two little ones that I need all of the organizing tips I can get. A few extra hands won't hurt either. Anyway, I decided to stop by my local dollar store and pick up some baskets to help organize our junk drawer in our kitchen. Everybody has one of those. It's just a catch all for things you need when you need them. So here are my before and after shots. I am proud of my accomplishmebnt and I just hope that we can keep it this way.

Closet Organization

Over at A Bowl Full of Lemons she is doing the 21 days of organization. I know it's a little late, but I decided to join in on the fun. So last weekend I decided to tackle the master bedroom closet. There were boxes and baskets from the front of the closet to the back. Here's a before shot:

Here is the after shot. I am so proud of myself! Well it's only my side of the closet, my husbands side is another day! I would love one of those ELFA systems.
