As the launch date if book three in the Stealing Breath trilogy draws near, I'm trying to decide which headshot to use for the back jacket. Which picture do you think is the best of these two?

Picture Picture

The first one is from a professional photo shoot. I was going for a pinup girl look but unfortunately I think I look a bit juvenile. The second is a selfie, but I like my purple "Vegas hair".

I'd love to hear your opinion!

Another idea I found on Pinterest, with a Personalized twist. Instead of the Mary Kay "Satin Hands", I wanted mine to be a Shea Butter Coconut sugar scrub.

I used Small Mason jars from Walmart, Palmolive dish soap, granulated sugar and coconut oil.

Picture Picture

I eyeballed the portions, with roughly 3/4 sugar to 1/4 Palmolive and mixed in some melted coconut oil (not too warm or it will melt the sugar).

After pouring the mixture into the hard I topped the lid with cute Christmas stickers, labelled them "Coconut SCRUB" and finished them off with a sparkly ribbon!

Picture

These cute little hard are perfect gifts for co-workers, as stocking stuffers and for kids' teachers!

How to cut long layers. First, brush or comb your hair. Then gather your hair in a ponytail at the nape of your neck. Pull the ponytail up and over so you can see you hair and cut it straight across. I repeated this process once to ensure the layers were straight and to catch any stray hairs. Cost: $0

What do you think? DIY gone too far?

My first attempt at Indigo hair was a success! At the time I had medium brown hair and so the results were quite vivid.

First, I used L'Oreal Healthy Look non-permanent colour in Vibrant Dark Auburn.

Picture

Then I used Garnier Colour Styler in violet.

Picture

Luckily the dark auburn washes out in 28 days and the violet washes out with every wash, so if I get sick of the colour it will be gone in a month.

What do you think? A DIY success?

Picture DIY Christmas ornaments!

Pretty handmade Christmas ornaments that you can customize for you recipient! The best part is that they are shatter-proof abd are extremely budget friendly.

II made these ornaments with the plan to use Pinterest melted crayon ornaments. However, I realized I'd purchased plastic ornaments, so the crayon-heating process didn't go so well.

Picture Melted plastic made the crayon version a no-go. Picture Clear plastic ornaments $5 from Walmart Picture Crafters Acrylic paint for $1 each at Dollarama

I squeezed a little paint into the ornament fr four sides and shook. Let it dry, and voila! Custom handmade ornaments perfect for stocking stuffers and safe for young children!
