Urban Herb Garden

I was always surrounded by flowers and plants when I was a little girl. I remember going out in the backyard with my dad in the summer and picking boatloads of tomatoes and turning them into mason jars of sauce, before mason jars were hip! My mom also had the best flower gardens surrounding my childhood home. We would go to the local flower shop every spring and plant tons of flats of flowers until not a sight of dirt could be seen.

I have no doubt in my mind that these experiences are what cultivated my many purchases of house plants and flowers in my apartment. That said, my apartment doesn't come with a yard to plant my own so when I came across this idea from IKEA, I was ecstatic! Talk about an awesome way to plant herbs right in your own kitchen... on a wall... AND it's super easy to put together.



happy weekEND.


Glow, Girl. DIY: Salt Body Scrub

Yesterday I mentioned a DIY salt scrub. I'm a huge fan of Lush products because of the effective results through their use of organic, fresh ingredients. I also enjoy making my own little products (when easier and cost effective) so I give to you: DIY Salt Scrub. Simply mix all the ingredients shown below into a clamp jar and use within 6 months stored in a clamped jar at room temperature. Enjoy!
