Wipes for Water Challenge!

This Earth Month, Neutrogena® Naturals is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to save water. Take the #WipeforWater challenge and pledge to clean your face without using water — and only using Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes — for 3 days! Then, get sharing about your Neutrogena® wipes with your social networks! For each pledge, Neutrogena® Naturals will contribute $1 to The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation, up to $50,000.
 I took the challenge with the free wipes sent to me by Influenster. I must admit, I was very sceptical about this challenge. The first day, I missed my morning splash. It helps me wake up, after all. The second day, I noticed my skin didn't need to be moisturised. On the third day, my skin looked great! Here are the before and after photos:

Hard Candy Concealer Tips

I posted a few days ago about the Hard Candy goodie bag the company sent me. I got some hives on my skin and decided to try out the Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer.
Here's my hand before.
First, I outlined the red marks with the concealer pencil:
Then I dabbed on the cream:
Blend, blend, blend!
Perfecto! I the red marks are gone. Can't wait to try this on pimples!

Plastic Egg Wreath for Easter

This year, I wanted to do something a little different for our Easter wreath. My kids are a little older, so I decided to use all of their old plastic eggs to make a wreath. I wanted to something different with the base, too, so I made a wreath form from a shipping box. Take a look:
First, I folded down all of the flaps of the box. It looked like this when I was done:
There was a crevasse area from the flaps...
So I filled it with Easter grass:
Then I hot glued Easter grass all over the box and finished it up with plastic eggs, beads, plastic flowers and other goodies. I hung the whole thing at a diagonal so it looks like a diamond.

Hard Candy's New Line Is Hard Not to Love

Recently, Hard Candy send me a bag full of goodies to try. Feast your eyes!

I've posted some reviews to my social media pages
(I have a lot more followers on social media than this blog, lol), but if you haven't seen them, I'll go over a few faves here.

My favorite was the Hard Candy Sheer Envy primer. It's new to the Hard Candy line and I love it. I look airbrushed. Freckles gone! My foundation went on so smooth and it smells so good. Part of my routine now!

Another product that I loved was the Hard Candy Black Tie Optional polish. It is a clear polish with specks of black and white. Here's how I did my nails:
  1. I painted all of my nails royal purple and let them dry half-way and smudged off some for an erroded look.
  2. Then I did two coats of Black Tie Optional. It looks like my nails have been graffitied. It's awesome.
I'm going to be doing some more reviews soon, so connect with me on Influenster, Twitter and Instagram.

How to Hang a Wrapped Canvas with Soda Tabs

Ever wonder how to hang a wrapped canvas that isn't framed? Let me introduce you to the soda tab method!
All you need is a soda can tab, a staple gun, scissors and a length of cord or wire.

First, lay your tabs 3/4 of the up the frame of your canvas. Staple them three times with your staple gun.

Thread your string or wire through the top loop of both tabs.

Tie the string to one of the tabs and pull the center of the string until it reaches the center of the top of the frame. Tie off the string to the other tab.

Here's what your finished canvas will look:

Now you can hang it just like any other picture or painting.

Super Quick T-Shirt Restyle

I bought this shirt for three dollars on clearance. I thought it would be baggy and comfortable. It was wayyyyyyyyy too baggy.

The shirt was HUGE! The shirt was HUGE!

My answer was to make a cut down the center and turn it into a flowing cardigan. To fix the big sleeves I simply pushed them up.

Tying it is another great option.Now it looks great!  Tying it is another great option.

Fantastic DIY Message Board

message board diy

I needed a message board that matches my office, so I made one from an old mirror frame that I bought at a yard sale. Here's how I did it:
I traced the shape of the frame onto some cardboard and cut it out.

Here is the cardboard shape.

Then, I hot glued fabric to the cardboard.

Next, I trimmed the excess fabric.

Finally, I popped the cardboard into the frame and hung it on the wall.
