Stinky Face Stuff

was planning on watching “Total Divas” tonight and bringing back my weekly recap, but unfortunately you might actually need a subscription to the channel you’re planning on watching (not naming names … SAMMERZ).  So anyway, here I am watching season 1 of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” for the second time and doing my pre-bedtime routine.  Aaaand apparently blogging about it now, kewl.

Basically I just wanted to throw some hot tips out there that may or may not be beneficial to you, my dear reader, who may or may not be my only reader, who may or may not be my husband (thanks for the support, bby).

I’ve come across two simple, albeit stinky, face cleansers that are also all natural.  Yay!  And not like you get them in the natural section of the skin care aisle, but like, actually natural and organic.  Coconut oil and apple cider vinegar, y’all!

Do it Yo’self: Chalkboard Style

All right, ya’ll.  Let’s get some DIY action on this blog, shall we?  I mean, let’s face it: this winter is NOT going away anytime soon, at least here in Wisco.  So while you’re cooped up yearning for spring to make its debut, create a fun and versatile addition to your home with this DIY chalkboard.

I may be a little behind on this trend but it does not seem to be fading out anytime soon.  There are tons of tutorials for how to chalkboard pretty much anything in your home, but what if you don’t actually own anything in your home?  Don’t get me wrong, I would love to chalkboard paint an entire wall or area of a wall in my home, but as a terminal renter/leaser (thx, student loans), I had to come up with an alternative choice.
