I know I’ve been overdosing on the beauty posts, but I’ve found so many good ones I just had to share! I honestly would never have thought to use coconut oil as a cleanser but apparently it has lots of great qualities - check out this article. I’m keen to try it out now! But of course I want it to look pretty… thank you Lia Griffith for your amazing as usual free printables! I will be your guinea pig and have a go at the coconut oil cleanser and let you know how I go… if you’re already using it I’d love to hear what you think!

Lavender Whipped Body Butter | Hello Home
I immediately bookmarked this body butter because I truly adore the scent of lavender - not that horrible, synthetic scent, but the true natural scent! I’m lucky that there is a beautiful lavender farm in SA that I can source pure lavender oil from, but I’m sure there’s some great online stores that also sell it. Lavender has so many fantastic properties, but for me the main reason is that it’s soothing and relaxing, perfect for those of us who find it hard to get to sleep. Keep it by your bed and apply liberally before bed!

She has so many amazing, gorgeous and well designed paper crafts on her site. And they’re all free!

I particularly love the top right hand style - I’ll have to practice it so I can do it even when I’m half asleep!

Easy to make and even more fun to decorate - go for the gold as pictured or you could do a henna design or even decoupage with some pretty tissue paper!

27 Unconventional Bouquets | Brit + Co

If you’re trying to save money on a wedding, one of the best areas to look at is flowers. ‘Traditional’ flowers can be incredibly expensive and at the end of the day, you will have to throw them out! One of the nice things about the bouquets featured in this list is that lots of them are handmade, cheaper to create and you can keep them at the end. I’ve picked a few of my favourites from the list:

Top Left: This gorgeous bouquet is made out of handmade paper flowers. I’m currently creating these roses to create a wreath, so I can tell you right now that if you’re thinking of making this, give yourself plenty of time to make each flower! But I can also tell you that the flowers look amazing when completed, and are really easy to put together. Don’t like pink? You can also download the roses in white and red!

Top right: A big bouquet of beautiful butterflies! Check out craft stores for a paper butterflies to match your colour scheme

Middle, Left: Having a Winter wedding? How about carrying a giant, sparkling snowflake? When you purchase this amazing ‘bouquet’ you also receive a complementary boutonniere!

Middle, Right: This quirky bouquet would be right at home at a fairground themed wedding (plus if you get hungry during the ceremony you can eat it!)

Bottom left: For all those crafty gals who are obsessed with knitting and crocheting, this bouquet is perfect - a combo of yarn balls and earthy plants - in gorgeous fall colours.

Bottom Right: Who says you have to carry flowers, when there are so many gorgeous coloured vegetables?!
