I’m absolutely in love with Henna Art! I have been meaning to get some done this summer, but I’ve have had no time! I wanted to find an alternative to the commitment that henna ink entails. Henna ink once on, stains your skin for about a week or so. After doing some research on temporary tattoos, I found that I could duplicate a henna tattoo, but in a temporary form. 

This tutorial shows you how you can create your own temporary henna tattoo with items already found in your home. This method is perfect for those of you looking to have some henna art for a short period of time. (example: music festival, weekend event, photo shoot, etc.) The temporary henna tattoo last about 2 days, and easily comes off with nail-polish remover. 

Hope you guys enjoy my trial and error in getting this DIY tutorial perfect for you guys. Happy designing! 

Materials:

  • Eyeliner (Wet & Wild - Marker Form $4.99)
  • Liquid Bandage (Target $5.79 / Bandaid aisle) 
  • Baby Powder
  • Blush Brush
  • Lotion

DIY | Coconut Water Popsicles with Fresh Fruit

I have been on the health tip lately, working out close to 5 days week while maintaining a healthy eating schedule. My sweet tooth has increased due to my recent ‘food restrictions,’ thus motivating me to find healthier summer indulgences. 

I stumbled upon this dope popsicle recipe on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a shot. Not only are the pops super simple to make, the coconut water is actually a great alternative to sports drinks. The coconut juice offers lots of potassium and magnesium, which restores your electrolytes. Perrrrrfect to indulge in after my late afternoon run’s this summer. 

Ingredients: 

  • Popsicle Tray (purchase mine at The Dollar Tree) 
  • Coconut Water
  • An assortment of berries 
  • Small Freezer Bags or Wax Paper (Optional) 

How to: 

  1. Begin my cutting up your desired fresh fruit into small pieces
  2. Next, fill your popsicle tray with the assortment of berries
  3. Pour in your coconut water until your popsicle mold is filled
  4. Lastly, cover and freeze

You can also use popsicle sticks in order to free up your popsicle tray for another batch. I came across these plastic sealable bags at Michael’s, which are a perfect size for storing popsicles. Another alternative is using wax paper to cover your popsicles in before returning them to the freezer. 

Hope you guys enjoy this yummy treat!

DIY | Thirsty Thirty Survival Kit 

My closest girlfriends have started leaving their twenties and venturing into the dark side. To ease having to face this new harsh reality, I decided to put together this kit to ease the ego and bring about some laughter. 

Below you will find a full description of the items I put together, along with their descriptions. I made my own gift tags to attach to each gift, but you can buy them pre-made at any craft store. These goodies were a combination of several Pinterest inspired ‘birthday survival kits’ I stumbled upon. This kit can be customized for someone who’s going to be 21, 40, or even 50! 

  • 1. Handmade Birthday Crown - ‘Because it’s your birthday and you can do whatever you want, yes, even prance around the house wearing this crown ALL DAY….’
  • 2. Chips - ‘Helps absorb alcohol.’
  • 3. Eye Wrinkle Cream - ‘Cuz shit your old.’
  • 4. Hair Ties - ‘Maybe useful when you’re hugging the porcelaine toilet.’
  • 5. Tums - ‘To settle that tummy.’
  • 6. Sunglasses - ‘If the lights are TOO bright in the morning.’
  • 7. Mouth Wash - ‘Cover stank breath.’ 
  • 8. Bandaids/First Aid Kit - ‘For those unexpected falls….’
  • 9. Aleve - ‘Poppin’ bottles last night, poppin’ Aleve in the morning.’ 
  • 10. Shooters - ‘DRINK ME NOW… #GoShortyItsYoBirthday’ 
  • 11. Tissues - ‘If drunken emotion overcomes you…#HighlyUnlikely’
  • 12. Coconut Water - ‘Drink me later… #Hangover’
  • 13. Cooling Wipes - ‘Wipe away the ratchet from the night before + amazing for hot flashes’ 
  • 14. Purifying Face Mask - ‘Purify yourself from all of your sins…#AMEN’
  • 15. Throwback Film/ Hook - ‘Nostalgia of your youth! Forever Neverland…..#RUFIO’ 
  • 16. Lunch - TO - GO - Kit - ‘Metabolism slows down, conscious nutrition goes up…’ 
  • 17. Chapstick - ‘Get those lips ready for more birthday kisses!’

PS. You can assemble these kits in a basket and gift them the night of the party or celebration. Trust me, they will be making use of the kit the morning after.
