Which DIY will you try?


  1. I watched an episode of Halston yesternight in which he is preparing his first perfume and the perfumist lady asks him to bring her some things that he likes the fragrances off and he brings her an orchid, tobacco and his boyfriends jockstrap LOL she incorporated everything into his perfume and it became a worldwide hit LOL

    1. LMAO @ the jockstrap. Not sure that would smell too hot.. I do enjoy the more woodsy men's scents like cedar.

  2. Helping the crummy back is always a win indeed

    1. You may benefit from essential oils. Did you ever look into it to see if it can help?

  3. My oldest daughter got her dad's side of the fair Irish skin, so she just burns looking at the sun. I'll have to tell her about making that after sun spray.

    1. If you try it, come back and tell us how it worked! It stinks about the sun burn though. We're not all made for it. I grew up in tanning salons and swear it destroyed my skin.
