DIY AIR FRESHENER

Decided to create my own seasonal air freshener using some fruits that I had around the house. An I wanted to share it with you guys so I created my first little video so you guys could see.

Being that this was my very first video I was not very detailed in the video so I will state everything I did…

Materials :

1. Handful of blueberries

2. One whole orange (Peels)

3. 4 Strawberries (Sliced)

4. 1 whole lime (Squeezed 1st )

5. 1 whole lemon (half squeezed other half sliced)

6. Cinnamon (Sprinkled as pleased)

7. 3 tea spoons of Vanilla

8. 4 cups of water

Set the temperature on LOW TO MEDIUM HEAT

After a while once I started to smell the scent I turned off the stove & just let it sit to cool off. I do not know how long it will last but my guess is 2-3 days depending on how long you leave it on.

Hope you guys enjoy & next time my video will be even more detailed.

I wore an orange top with the brown patch on the elbows paired with a pair of high waist zipper on the side skinny jeans (Forever21) with a pair of light brown ankle cow girl boots. Also to add some print I decided to go with a snake skin clutch (H&M). As for accessories I wore my vintage like necklace (forever21) & some cute little bracelets as well. Also I straightened my hair but I was going for the wild look & just wanted to clip my ends (1st time) ! Hope you guys like and I will have another look for you guys tomorrow.

So I just wanted to share my meal with you guys & I hope you have a great day !

DIY Challenge (My Health)

Hello guys ! Well I know you guys are saying UH OH CHALLENGE ! Yes that’s right, a challenge ! But it’s really a challenge that I gave to myself. I know I don’t eat fruits as much as I should & I love making sure that I have my GREENS when I eat my meals. But lately because so much has been going on all I have been consuming is FAST FOOD & JUNK FOOD ! Which is a no no because I have been gaining weight & breaking out like crazy ! So I have challenged myself to cut FAST FOOD out for a while & to give up some of my junk food habits that I have picked up. Since moving & getting settled in I have started back drinking smoothies. Not the smoothies that you go out & buy but smoothies I actually make for myself using fruits, honey, greek yogurt, flaxseeds, & greens ! Part of my challenge is to make sure I take in enough fruits & vegetables an a way for me to do that is to make smoothies for Breakfast or Lunch. So far I have made 3 different smoothies & they were pretty YUMMY ! 🙂 Down below I will share my tasting treats & the ingredients ! Hope you enjoy & try them out !
