Friday’s Favorites – Summer Lovin’

So, I don’t know about you, but we haven’t had much of a spring here in North Texas. We’ve had one big storm (which brought devastating tornadoes to towns around us – you can donate to the disaster relief through Red Cross here,) and a few days in the 70’s, but mostly we’ve gotten sunshine and highs in the upper 80’s and low 90’s. That’s the beginning of summer, if you ask me.

In celebration of our early summer, this Friday’s Favorites list is full of sunbeams and bohemian loveliness.

This beautiful leg chain is a natural evolution of this year’s body chain trend!

Make It Monday – A Long, Hot Bath

It’s official, I’ve caught the cold that’s been going around. Of course, it waited to set in until I was babysitting a friend’s kiddos! So, since I’m feeling, well, snotty, I’ll keep this Make It Monday short and sweet. Here’s a quick concoction for a wintertime bath that’s especially helpful when you’re sick, and that also makes a great, inexpensive DIY gift.

1 Cup Epsom Salts (or 1/2 C Dead Sea, 1/2 C Epsom Salts)

3-4 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Add the salts and oil directly to a warm to hot bath. The Epsom and/or Dead Sea salts help relax fatigued and sore muscles, while the peppermint oil helps open sinuses, stimulate the skin (a bit of an icy/hot effect mixed with the hot water), ease headache and lift your mood. It doesn’t hurt that it makes you smell like a candy cane, either! Drink a cup of tea, and enjoy the silence or some relaxing music while you soak.

Note: Only use pure essential oil, and avoid contact with eyes. While the oil will be diluted in the water, you may want to wait to wash your face in the sink after your bath.

Thoughtful Thursday – Holiday Countdown

Here in the U.S., there are only 41 days until Thanksgiving. That means Christmas is a mere 71 days away – that’s 10 weeks!

I have made one Christmas present. Holiday fail. That countdown definitely motivates me to get them made, though!

If you’re in the buying mode (but haven’t bought much yet), here are some thoughtful (and affordable) gift suggestions for your friends and family.
