DIY: Scrubs: Brown Sugar Autumn Body Scrub

I love doing anything DIY if I can help it, especially if it will help save money in my pocket. Though I love Sephora, sometimes the things they sell can be a bit pricey when I could just make the item myself. For instance, I recently got a sample of a Brown Sugar Scrub and body wash. I thought “I could make this then I wouldn’t have to buy this!”

So I went searching around Google and Pinterest to see if I could find any DIY Brown Sugar Scrub but as I saw some Coffee scrubs, I thought “Wait, we use Rooibos loose tea, maybe I could incorporate this too!”

More searching only to find one or the other.

So…I made my own. Here’s how to make my Brown Sugar Autumn Body Scrub (I call it a Autumn Scrub because it smells more like Fall/Autumn time to me) :

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of sugar or Brown Sugar (We don’t eat sugar in our house, so I used Truvia Crystals and added Molasses to make Brown Sugar until I got the consistency I liked, then added it to this recipe you might need only 1/3 cup if using Truvia. I did one cup and had to add more)
  • **1 tbsp Loose Leaf Rooibos Tea (or more if desired) (If you only have tea bags, just cut open the tea bags for the amount you need/desire)(You can leave this step out if you don’t want it. The tea crystals are pretty messy in the shower, but not so bad in a bath, though beware of clogging your tub)
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E, (cut open vitamin 4-6 Vitamin E liquid gel caps)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or your favorite citrus essential oil (optional)
  • 1/3 cup liquid oil – either almond, avocado, olive, or coconut. I like Olive Oil best but we also use Almond Oil in our house so sometimes I mix them together so I get a bit of both.
  • If desired for dry skin, add a tbsp of Raw Honey
Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine oil, vitamin E and vanilla. Add the brown sugar and mix well.
  2. Add your oil and mix together, it shouldn’t be to dry or two wet. If the mixture is dripping off your spoon, it’s too wet.
  3. Store in a container with a tight fitting lid and use whenever you feel the urge for a spa night!
  4. The above amount makes enough for your entire body, for a few washes.

This is how it should look with the tea leaves

To Use: In the shower, apply Brown Sugar Body Scrub into skin and rinse. Can be used daily.

**Trixie Tip: Please be aware that oils can make the shower and bath surfaces very slippery so remember to rinse well with hot water afterwards and wipe down so others (and yourself) do not fall. Also little rubber feet at the bottom of the shower or bath help you from sliding as well. If you don’t have that, I generally put a medium town down underneath me so I don’t fall.

img_20160908_122644285

The finished product (this is without the tea leaves)

Gift Packaging Idea: Though Mason Jars are GREAT for this, not everyone has them. Instead, save plastic containers from other products and replace the label with one I made myself on the computer. I use Washi Tape and fabric and a bow. Tie it up with a colorful ribbon and you have a wonderful homemade beauty gift!

enjoy!

Trixie Tips Tuesday

I saw this adorbs little article on taking the Tops off of Shoe Boxes and turning them into Jewlery trays so I thought I would take those old Fashion Barbie Calendars I had and a few pieces of felt and some Mod Podge and do the same!

All I did was cut out swatches of the tissue paper and use ModPodge to cover it with a brush as a coating then let is dry. Then I vut the calendar pieces to fit inside the box and used a coat of it for glue on the bottom and then a coat of it for the top for a shine.

Recipe Sunday : Rootbeer

http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/lawrencehallofscience_2270_2599598

Preparation for yourself:

To get in the spirit make sure you have your RootBeer BottleCap Earrings from TrishaTrixie

Large_20130820_123209

and your fabulous Steam Punk Inspired Re Constructed Apron (which will be available for purchase after Fashion Show)

Add a Fabulous lip color from Vanity and Glamour Cosmetics and you are all set. If you want to go fancier add any other makeup like Mascara from V and G and it will make you feel fabulous ready to be the RootBeer maker!

Root Beer Recipe

You’ll need these:

  • Bleach, or sanitizers from homebrewing suppliers
  • Large pot
  • Funnel
  • Measuring cups/spoons
  • ultra-fine straining tool (coffee filter, cheese cloth, or clean towel)
  • Plastic bottle and cas (2 Liter, or a few 20 oz)
  • Yeast (ale yeast, champagne yeast, or dry and active powdered baker’s yeast, but not bread-makers)
  • Sugar
  • Flavorings/herbs
  • distilled or tap water devoid of chlorine

Pre-cook tips:

  • Sanitize your supplies. Nothing is worse than spending a few hours with a liquid masterpiece only to find out it smells rank because bacteria clung to one of your supplies. Use up to 1 TBS unscented bleach per 1 gallon water. Soak for at least 1 minute in the diluted mixture and let air dry.
  • United States water supply will have minute amounts of chlorine to clean out city pipes and ward off bacteria. Chlorine can be reduced in tap water by letting it sit in a pot and air out for at least an hour.

Make the wort:

  • 4 boiling cups water
  • 1 TBS sassafras root bark
  • 2 TBS sarsaparilla root
  • 2 TBS dried wintergreen leaves
  • ½ TBS dandelion root (or dandelion tea bag)
  • ½ to 1 cinnamon stick (½ TSP powder)
  • 1 TSP coriander fruit (dried seeds, freshly crushed)
  • 1 TBS raisins (or berries of your choice)
  • 1 TBS hops (or burdock)
  • Optional: 1 dash of nutmeg, allspice, clove, and/or black pepper

I did not use the below ingredients in my first brew, but you can add or substitute these in your wort. The amounts are a starting point.

  • ½ TBS ginger root
  • 1 TBS birch bark, spruce bark, horehound, anise, or wild cherry tree bark
  • 1 TBS licorice root

Bring water to a boil. Simmer ingredients for 1 hour. Hops can be added anytime throughout the cooking process. Check out the temperature effects on the flavor of hop tea. Let wort cool to under 105 degrees F. Strain, and funnel into your bottle.

Post-wort ingredients:

  • 1 C cane sugar*
  • 1 TSP vanilla extract (more if using imitation)
  • 1 TBS honey
  • ½ TSP molasses
  • 1 to 2 TBS fresh squeezed lime/lemon juice (about 1 small lime or half a lemon)
  • Optional: fruit juices

Add your extracts, sugars, and liquids to the bottle. Shake up all the ingredients until dissolved.

Proceed to yeasting:

  • 1/4 TSP yeast (or 1/8 TSP of ale or other yeasts)
  • 1/4 C very warm water (not boiling or very hot)

Let the yeast sit in the warm water for 15 minutes. Afterwards, add this to the bottle, then top off the bottle with clean water until there’s only an inch of space from the cap. The less oxygen in there, the less oxidation (leading to off flavors and smells). But leave just a bit of room for  a foamy head (just like beer) and for fizzing when opening.

Be still and patient:

Let the yeast ferment into soda in a dark place. Or if you are lazy, cover the bottles with your leftover laundry. Wait anywhere from 4 hours to a week, depending on the temperature and complexity of the nutrients. Warm weather indoors will speed up the process compared to a cold house without a heater running. Typical time will be 1-3 days.

When the bottle doesn’t flex under firm pressure, it is ready to permanently toss into a refrigerator to inhibit further carbonation. Any lollygagging after the bottle stops giving when squeezed will only increase your risk of over-carbonation and exploding fluids. After refrigerated, the bottle will need some pressure released. Slowly loosen the cap until a faint noise lets you know the compressed gas is escaping. Let the craft root beer sit in the fridge with the slightly loosened cap. You can drink 12-24 after it has cooled. Be careful not to unscrew the cap too fast on first opening, as you might get overflowing root-beer (after all, it is carbonated soda).

* Tweaking the sugar sources will have a direct impact on the flavor. Experiment with brown sugar, 2/3 c agave nectar, honey, or other sugary substances. Sweet fruit juice can also be substituted for water and part of the sugar contents. Some sugar (glucose, fructose, dextrose, etc) needs to be present for the yeast to work its magic, but you can replace part of the sugar with stevia or other sugar alternative. If you are looking for a sugar-free alternative, you could skip the yeast and use pre-made or force carbonated water, but use a lower quantity of sugar substitute.

TrishaTrixie Tuesdays: The Boyfriend Apron

Do you have an old boyfriend shirts you just don’t know what to do with? I found a tutorial on how to take a shirt and make it into an apron and thought I would show you my process and how I did it for this Trixie Tuesdays

image

image

I cut off the arms and then trimmed them for the ties

image

I cut thae collar and used as much of the sleeve as I could for each set of ties

image

I laid out each sleeve and then slit up the sides to open it up

image

like this I laid it out and then counted four squares over and cut

image

I also took what was left of the top part of the collar and trimmed it to use for puppy and cat scarves

Stay tuned later today to see how this turns out!

Until then,

Try It Tuesday: Ridding your home of those nasty gnats (by special guest Jessi Wilson)

Getting rid of Pesky gnats (Jessi Wilson)

Okay, so how many of you have woken up in the middle of the night to that annoying buzzing sound in your ear? Yep, me too. When spring comes those little gnats sneak their way in unnoticed and prey on you nearly 24/7 but mostly at night. I use to be a firm believer in fly strips until the day I backed into the one hanging in my dining room and got my hair stuck. And after many a “sentence enhancer” (cuss words for short) I decided, in desperate times I will use these.

Not anymore, I have found an at home safe and beyond effective method of getting those little gnats and fruit flies out of your life if not for good, pretty close, and you have all of these ingredients IN YOUR KITCHEN!

This is what you will need:

Wide mouth plastic bottle with tight fitting lid (Lipton Pure Life Tea bottles work great!!) or
Pint or Quart Mason jar with ring

Saran Wrap –if using the mason jar

Apple Cider Vinegar or Left Over Wine (WHAT!?! You say?!? Who has left over Wine? It happens, *laughs* I’m proof)

Dish Washing Soap (like for your sink, not dishwasher)

Water

Okay, these ingredients look pretty simple, right? This is where it gets even easier.

Method 1:
You are going to rinse out the contain you decide to use, shake it out so you get most of the water out of it, and measure out 1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar or Wine(if you have that much left Emoji) and pour it into your container, add approximately 1 squirt (1 tablespoon) of your Dish Washing Soap. Now if you use the Mason Jar, you can take your little piece of Saran Wrap, put it over the top of your jar, and apply your lid and poke some holes in your wrap. You dont want them too big or too small, because you want these little buggers to get in, and not be able to get out, set it in the place your flies are gathering and… wait. (You may want to change this solution every couple days, where in method 2, I put put the lid back on shook it again, and started over)

Method 2: (Which is the one I used)
Put all ingredients from above into your Tea Bottle, when finished add 1/4 c of water and apply your lid. This is where your kids can help, have them shake the bottle until you have bubbles forming to the top of your bottle. Remove your lid, set it in place, and wait. The cool part about this method, is you can see these little bugs gather on the bubbles, and it traps them so they can fly in, but not out. Genius, Right?!

gnatkiller

Good Luck with your options, I would really recommend this over any other product out there. But ill let you decide for yourself. — Jessi

So, this is try it Tuesday and I look for other ideas to try.  I’m no designer like Trisha Trixie.  The directions were to stick some tissue paper in a jar, put on a lid, and a flameless candle and you would have a masterpiece.  If you couldn’t do it, they have them available on easy.  Psh…the directions were bad, but I can help you and I’ve added some beautiful additions.

Attire Suggestions

Trisha Trixie had come up with a reversible apron that is meant for keeping beauty supplies.  However, I think it will be great for holding crafting supplies.  Today, I introduce the cutest little barbie apron around.  Oh, this girl loves her some Barbies.  I’ll have to let you in on my Barbie collection some day!

Wednesday What Not: Birthday Traditions

We are celebrating the birthday week of TrishaTrixie.

I thought it would be fun to reflect on some birthday traditions.

Cake

cake

There are many theories as to why we have the birthday cake!

  • The greeks were thought to take cakes to the gods at the beginning of a full moon and a birthday represents one full moon!
  • In Germany, it was a tradition to make bread in the shape of the baby Jesus’s swaddling clothes.

But why do they put candles on the cake?

  • Again, this looks at ancient Greek times.  When the cakes were brought to the God’s they were lit with candles to look like the moon.
  • The German’s were the first to use small candles on their cakes, as they were good candle makers.
  • Candles were used in the center of cakes to represent the “light of life”
  • Some cultures believed that the smoke from the candles would send your wishes up to heaven.

The Birthday Party

A party is usually had so that treats can be shared and presents can be given.  However, this was not always the case.

  • The earliest parties were planned because people thought that evil spirits would visit them on their birthdays.  Friends and family stuck close so they could keep the spirits away.
  • Later, they became traditions where people would come together and celebrate the life of the person having a birthday.

Birthday Luck

A good luck birthstone, good luck flower and good luck color have been assigned to each month of the year.

Wrapping Gifts

A tradition that we hold is the custom of wrapping gifts.

Check out this video on how to wrap a perfect gift.

The bracelet cost me around $25 to make.  This may seem pricey, but it is no where near as expensive as the charm bracelets purchased at your local retailer.  If you search around, you can usually find deals on these bracelets.  Beads, charms and etc easily come off the bracelet making the charms changeable.  This would make a great, personal Mother’s Day Gift.

The Titanic travel will add a hint of nautical wonder to your look.  TrishaTrixie Designs has many other nautical jewelry available at their shop!

Shoes you say?  We will have that covered in a bit.

  • Glue gun and hot glue
  • Images to put in the bottle tops
