Rosemary Salt Favours

My little sister is getting married this weekend (!) and just like I did for my wedding, she wanted to make her own wedding favours for her guests.

Spa in a Grocery Bag | DIY Bath and Body Products

Summer’s over, and it’s been crazy. So, to start the school year off right, I needed some rejuvenation. As it’s not always cost- or time-effective to hit a day spa, I thought I’d make a quick run to the grocery store and create my own simple products to replicate a relaxing day at the spa. There are SO many options for d.i.y. face masks and hair treatments, I could fill an entire website. But I’m starting here with the basics. Perhaps I’ll do another post some time in the future with further suggestions for a spa-in-a-grocery-bag.
