Fresh iced tea

I love tea, but summer is hot and I’m not in the mood of drinking hot drinks. No problem! I have the solution to keep enjoying this amazing drink but in a more fresh way.

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll probably know that I felt in love with iced tea. Refreshing and delicious. Perfect!


This one that I tried was for taking away, but you can do your own at your house and drink it whenever you want. It’s so easy!

Only do what you use to do! And then keep the drink in the freezer. Are you thirsty? Take a cup and fill it with your cold tea, then add some ices and you’re done!

Maybe you’ve heard about Lipton or Arizona iced tea, but if you do it homemade you have more options to choose. The same as Starbucks iced tea, you’ll save a lot of money!

Amazing lipsticks

I’m very excited about this post because it’s about… Lipsticks!

Today I decded to show you how to do homemade lipsticks. You must know that conventional lipstick can be a source of harmful chemicals and these chemicals can be easily absorbed. These homemade lipstick let you create a personalized lipstick color that is chemical free and inexpensive to make.

These are the ingredients that you’re going to need:

1 teaspoon beeswax pastilles

1 teaspoon Shea butter or Cocoa Butter

1 teaspoon coconut oil

This base recipe will create a smooth, clear lipstick that is very moisturizing and protective. Now, if you want, you can add some color to your lipstick.

Melt all the ingredients in a glass jar without a lid in a small pot of simmering (not boiling) water. When melted, remove from heat and add any optional ingredients like color or scent.

These are some things that you can add:

Matte texture: Add some bentonite clay. You must add some color, this way your lips won’t look white.

Red: Add some natural red food colorant.

Tan/Brown: Cocoa powder or cinnamon.

Scented: A drop of essential oil of choice.

Say goodbye to chapped lips

We love doing DIYs because it means we can control what we’re putting on our skin and we save lots of money. Today I’m going to show you how to do our own lip scrubs because we all love Lush’s products, but me should save some money.

For each recipe you only need two components: an exfoliator and a nourishing agent, which are a fabulous solution for chapped lips. Be careful because it’s very probable that you want to eat it!

This recipe is so easy and you can customize the flavor with your favorite lip balm. Just combine it with some petroleum jelly and some sugar for instant exfoliating action!

But I’m going to share with you my favorite lip scrub recipe. This works perfectly and your lips will be so smooth.

You’ll need:

1 tsp of coconut oil

1 tsp of raw honey

1.5 – 2 TB of raw/granulated sugar

Some lemon juice

Yummy ice cream!

I love ice cream and I think that I’m not the only one.

I use to spend a lot of money buying ice cream, but I thought that could be a good idea to make my own ice cream at home. So that’s what I’m going to show you today.

For all the different recipes you’re gonna need condensed milk and cream, but then you can add your favorite ingredients (chocolate, marmalade, flavors…) to get the best ice cream ever. You only have to leave it a few hours in the freezer and that’s all you have to do!

You can serve it in cups or “cute containers”.

Or between two cookies and I promise that this is so yummy.

I hope you liked the idea because I think that it’s a easy way to save money and using creativity to create new awesome flavors.

Tell me in the comment box which is your favorite flavor. Mine is probably hazelnut.
