1. Cool off at the beach with a refreshing DIY All-Natural Body Mist! Fill a spray bottle with filtered water and add sliced cucumber. Mist yourself when you’re getting toasty in the sun! You can also use sprigs of lavender and mint!

2. Hydrate your skin with an Avocado-Mango Face Mask! Mix 2 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp avocado, 2 tbsp olive oil, and 1 mashed mango together in a bowl. Apply to your skin for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with cool water.

3. Relieve your sunburn with Aloe Cubes! Freeze Aloe Vera gel in ice cube trays for sunburn relief. Add some lavender or mint essential oils for an extra calming boost!

4. Accidentally melt your chapstick? No problem! Scrape the chapstick into a microwavable bowl. Add an equal amount of Vaseline and add some lipstick or eye shadow for color. Heat the bowl up 10-20 seconds at a time and mix the ingredients until the color and consistency are even. Pour into small containers and let them cool in the fridge. Now you have the perfect colored lip gloss to carry with you!

5. Recharge with Strawberry Lemonade Sun Tea! Combine 24 ounces of filtered water and sugar to taste into a large glass container. Add a large ice tea bag or 3 small tea bags, sliced lemons, and strawberries. Close the lid and let it steep in the sunlight for 1-2 hours. Serve over ice!

Instructions:

1. Trace a heart on your felt, and then cut out four identical hearts.

2. Apply glue to the outer edge of one felt heart and press the other heart against it making sure to align the edges.

3. Once it’s dry, cut a small slit in the center of one side of the heart.

4. Use that slit to pull the heart inside out so that the edges are hidden.

5. Stuff the heart with cotton.

6. Use fabric glue to close the hole.

WHAT’S IN MY CLOSET THIS FALL? 

Hello sweater season!

I am sad to see the summer go, but fall means a whole new back to school wardrobe. Fall is a great time to try out new styles. Plus, I am so excited to break out my scarf and hat collection again!

My fall fashion must-haves? New moto jacket, floral dress, distressed jeans with fun patches, oversized pullover sweater, suede skirt and of course, a new flannel shirt. I love to throw a flannel shirt over a graphic tee or under my sweater for a little extra pop to the collar and sleeves. Nothing says fall like bundling up, so top it off with a knit hat and an oversized scarf.

Pipa loves all things fashion. Find out her Fall Fashion Must-Haves for this Back to School season!

Did I mention I got a new pair of black booties that match practically everything? I’m in love!

A new school year can be intimidating and overwhelming. Getting out of bed sometimes is the hardest part. My back to school tip is to lay your clothes out the night before, so you can start your day with confidence and feeling at your best. Just remember- don’t let your closet define you. It’s what’s inside of you that will shine no matter what!

Leave a comment, and let me know your favorite fall fashion trends. I’m always looking for new ways to spice up my closet!

XOXO,

Pipa
