New Year’s Eve Dress

This is the first year in history that I have NO CLUE what I will wear for new years.  Although I should probably freaked out, I’m taking an “economy friendly” approach and wearing a dress that I already own.  It’s the end of 2010 and I need to be more money conscious for 2011, so why not start it off right~ Right? =P

If I COULD have bought a dress…here would be my choices for the night =D

Stella McCartney $1545

Juicy Couture $350

Halston Heritage $365

Oscar de la Renta $4990

Tibi $995

DIY: Simple Homemade Body Scrub

Simple Homemade Body Scrub

In the spirit of Doing More With Less here’s another easy project with awesome results. Rather then spending $30 on a luxurious body scrub for my flaky winter skin, I whipped one up with some ingredients from my kitchen.

So what if I can’t spell? My skin is smooth as a baby’s booty. I’ll tell you how to make Simple Homemade Body Scrub with a few ingredients from around your kitchen after the jump…

And remember to leave a comment, because you could win that super cozy skein of Bamboo Ewe yarn!

Simple Homemade Body Scrub

1. Gather your supplies. You’ll need a little jar. Maybe one from an expensive jar of nuts you ate at midnight in a hotel room. You’ll also need some sugar. White sugar works fine. Also the “raw sugar” that is brown works really well for extra scrubbing power (but not actual brown sugar – don’t use that, it has molasses and will get gross). Then you’ll need an oil. Don’t use canola or vegetable oil, eew gross, can you imagine that all viscosity-extreme all over you? Olive oil would work though, or peanut oil. I used coconut oil that I bought in Thailand, but it’s actaully fresh squeezed from a coconut, so it doesn’t smell like processed coconut oil (which would be yum on it’s own), it smells more musty, like coconut water that’s been sitting out for a month. So I also used some lavender essential oil that I picked up at Whole Foods. A little bit goes a long way, so you can use the same bottle for like ten years to make sachets and soap and candles and what not. Lavender and coconut seemed like a weird combo, but it works. You can use any combo you want, or you can eliminate the essential oil all together (if you want to smell like olive oil or whatever oil you use).

2. Pour sugar into the jar, filling it:

3. Pour oil on top of the sugar to cover.

Stir it around to coat all the sugar:

You may need to add more oil. So do that until all the sugar is coated.

4. Now add a few drops of your essential oil and stir. Add more until you like the smell. You don’t need too much.

Doesn’t that look yummy?

Close the lid.

Dress up your jar with a label, or mod podge some fabric, tie a raffia bow, tie a little wooden scoop on, whatever. Gift to everyone you know!

Or just scrub your own body down. Just don’t touch your camera while you’re doing it, duh.

A pretty sweet little treat for you or a friend with just these few things from your kitchen. Prudent, no?

Fabulous Shoes this Winter for a STEAL

When Forever 21 first came out, it seemed like another “teen” store or the next “contempo casual”.  Except…it wasn’t.  Forever 21 took a turn and turned into a mega store that served all ages and fashion styles at a low price.  When the economy was going through a slump and major retailers were hit hard, Forever 21 thrived because of it’s wide selection and low prices.

Here are a few pairs of shoes that I’m in Love with such a LOW price!!
