Hi guys! So, I know a lot of you guys are on Spring Break, and if you are anything like my family, you're most likely going to have a stay cation, laying in bed, watching Pretty Little Liars... Okay, I am hoping right now that somebody out there can relate to any of what I'm saying, so I'm going to show you guy some fun DIY's to do at home, as well as health recipes!

DIY:

1) FUN BATH BOMBS


•1 cup baking soda
•1/2 cup citric acid
•1/2 cup epsom salt
•1 tsp. water
•2 tsp essential oils
•3 tsp. olive oil
•Food coloring
•Bowl, whisk, jar
•Bath bomb mold (or egg poach)

Place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, and mix them evenly with a whisk. In a separate container, mix all of the liquid ingredients together. Slowly mix the liquid ingredients with the dry ingredients, spoonful at a time. After it is well mixed, place the mixture in the bath bomb mold and pop that in a freezer for a couple hours or overnight, or until dry.

2) COTTON CANDY LIP SCRUB




















•5 tbsp sugar, divided
•2 1/2 tsp olive oil, divided
•6 drops cotton candy flavoring, divided
•2 drops blue food coloring
•2 drops pink food coloring

BLUE SCRUB:

In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp sugar with 1 tsp olive oil. Add three drops cotton candy flavoring and 2 drops blue food coloring. Set aside.

PINK SCRUB:

WHITE SCRUB:

In a small bowl, mix 1 tbsp sugar with 1/2 tsp olive oil. Set aside.

MIXING THE SUGARS TOGETHER:

In a separate bowl, add the blue sugar to one side of the bowl and the pink to the other. Pour the white sugar in the middle of the bowl and swirl the colors together with a knife. Put in a container and close lid.

3) MARBLE MUGS



•Disposable container
•Nail polish
•Wood coffee stirrer or toothpick
•Mug
•Sponge brush
•Glossy acrylic sealer

1) Fill the container with warm water. Drip nail polish into the container. Pockets will form. Quickly use the stirrer or toothpick to expand the pockets of nail polish. Then dip your mug into a circular motion. Let dry. Then add a glossy acrylic sealer with a sponge brush just over the design. You might need to add more layers of sealer, depending on your design. Be sure to let dry between applications.
