Back to School Teacher Gifts


Back to School Teacher Gifts

 

So… I’m kiddos went back to school today. I know… It’s early, right?!  I put together these  Back to School Teacher Gifts that were under $7 each!

Our children’s teachers spend a lot if time with them throughout the year and I wanted to send them something to reward and encourage them for all the hard word they have done to prepare for our little one’s arrival.

Inexpensive back to school teacher's gifts

I went to the Target One Spot and picked the metal buckets, tags, sticky notes, pencils, and notebook for $1 each. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and got the gold metallic shred and the mustache paper clips. ( Which are my favorite)

 back to school teachers gift ideas

I started by putting the notebook on the bottom, followed by the sticky notes and then the pencil. I used a piece of ribbon to tie it tightly together. Then, I added some tissue paper to the bucket and filled it up about halfway up. Next, we added the metallic shred and  the You’re the “WRITE” teacher for me tag. I finish by using a clear plastic treat bag and tied it with a ribbon, to keep everything from spilling out.Lastly, I added another tag with the first initial of their lastname  for a personalized touch.

DIY LAVENDER BODY SCRUB

How to make DIY Lavender Body Scrub

I’m super excited to share this post with you today. If you knew me in real life, you’ll know my favorite home and body fragrance is lavender.  My neighbor has a few huge lavender bushes in her front yard. As I’m sitting here writing this post, it can smell them in the air.  I just love it. So, naturally, I decided to make my own DIY LAVENDER BODY SCRUB.

I’m a huge fan of Pinterest. I mean, duh… Who isn’t?! I see people post DIY BODY SCRUB all the time, and I thought… Hey, I can make some LAVENDER BODY SCRUB!

Genius!

I didn’t really follow a recipe. I just put the ingredients in until it looked like body scrub. Don’t worry… I made a second batch like a good little blogger, so I could share the recipe with you!

DIY Lavender body Scrub ingredents

What you’ll need

1  TBSP Coconut Oil

1 tsp. Fresh or Dried Lavender Flowers

1 tsp. Course Sea Salt

1/4 cup. Granulated Sugar

Small Ball Jam Jar

All you do is mix it all together in a bowl, and transfer it into your small jam jar.

These amounts aren’t set in stone. If you feel something isn’t right, feel free to add or take something away. This is just what worked for me. This scrub not only smells amazing, but it will give you smooth, radiant summer skin, too!

Let me know if there is any other  DIY scrubs you would like to see. I’m thinking of a lip scrub and a facial scrub for acne.

HOW TO DOCUMENT YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES

HOW TO DOCUMENT YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES

How to Documenting your children's lives

I have to admit. I’ve been lax when it comes to documenting my kids lives. Well… That’s kind of not completely the truth. I have a TON of pictures of Breanna when she was little, but I dropped the ball when it came to Abigail. Honestly, I think most second time parents do this, right?

Lately, I’ve gotten really intentional about taking more pictures of my girls. Most parents document the big moments like; school programs, the first day of school, and so on. For me,  I’ve found the best way is to document the little moments. The ones you might forget like; playing with their friends, doing chores, eating their favorite meals.
 
  This the day I gave my girls an eye shadow palette I had that I never used, but they thought it was the best day EVER and wanted to play in makeup with their friends.  This is a great “first” experience to document.

My best friend and her husband were having a date night, and went to a concert. Their little one spent the night at our house. These kids will grow up together, so I thought this would be a great night to document.

LORAC PRO Brow Pencil Quick Review & Demo

LORAC PRO Brow Pencil

So many people miss a step in that makeup process… Brows!  Before I really got into makeup that was a step I always skipped, and I know I’m not alone.

The most common question I hear is, ” What kind of brow products do I use?”

Honestly, if you chose the right product to fill them in, you can really get by with using one product. Like the LORAC PRO Brow Pencil! This pencil is great because not only is it at all-in- one product with a spoolie. It also helps to shape and manage hair, but it’s also a great formula that provides precisely defined eyebrows that stay on and in place all day!
