Crochet Temperature Blanket

Crochet Temperature Blanket

This coming year, 2017, I have decided to crochet a temperature blanket. I missed this bandwagon last year and didn’t hear about a temperature blanket until October this year, but I am beyond excited to start mine and finish mine next year. A lot of people I follow on Instagram in my crocheting/knitting community are still working on a Temperature Blanket, and I was inspired by them. My favourite has been Olivesandpickles and her projects. She has given me some…

First Attempt at homemade Beefless Beef

First Attempt at homemade Beefless Beef

Alright, so tonight I attempted to make homemade beefless beef. I love the Trader Joe’s brand of it, but I always seem to need it when I’m out.

Avocado Mash for hair.

Avocado Mash for hair.

Coconut oil, avocado, and a wee bit of baking soda apparently make a good conditioner … Leave it on your hair/scalp for about 15 to 20 minutes. Well, I did this and I have to say…. It was weird…. Even after blended up everything as smooth as I could get it, there were still chunks of avocado I had to somehow was out of my hair in the end…. I don’t think I will do it again 🙁 Why? Well…

Face mask, face wash, body scrub and a cat named River.

Face mask, face wash, body scrub and a cat named River.

Hello all! (listening to Mode by Bingo Players…. I REALLY LIKE THIS SONG!) The birds are awakening and I have yet to sleep. 🙁 I’m anxious, thinking too much, stressed out, freaking out over life and my job, and I was just unable to fall asleep much to the dismay of River and friends. 🙁  So what do I do at this hour of night when I can’t sleep? I find recipes or create them for face things. Tonight we…

So here are some photos. The one of my face is a new mask I made and tried out tonight. It is ironic really… I don’t mind posting photos of me with mask stuff on my face, but I don’t like having pictures taken of me otherwise. Hahahaha… oh well, here is the mask recipe: It is a cup of oatmeal that I ground up in a little coffee grinder, 2tbsp(ish) of honey, hot water to the consistency I wanted,…
