To Brew / Rose Almond Milk

       Hi there! With spring beginning yesterday (can I get an amen?!), I thought it apt to share a new take on my basic ol' almond milk. I use almond milk every day in smoothies and in my coffee - but it can get a little dull every now and then to be so monotonous. That being said, I set out to create a fresh flavor with almond milk by making the additions of a little rose water, vanilla, and honey! It's simple, obviously floral, and slightly sweet - just what I needed to switch things up. Get the full recipe below!

To Make / Rose Facial Spray

 

      Good morning! It's finally June, and that means summer! Along with the coming solstice, there will be a few changes to the blog. I'm rolling out a new business venture in collaboration with the existing blog, and this means that with the new work being shared, there will be less posting here. My goal is to post 3 times a week, expanding on fashion and style, while still keeping a couple of recipes and projects around. I'll share more about the business I'm working on in the coming weeks, but for now, lets kick off June with a refreshing, summery DIY! 

     Rose facial spray has been on my list of essential DIY's for awhile. As you may know, I'm in love with anything rose, from the scent to the color. I just can't get enough! What with the temperatures heating up and all, I figured it's time to share how to make this little gem, to keep your skin hydrated all summer long. Get the how-to below!

Materials:

- rose essential oil

- witch hazel

- distilled water

- a glass spray bottle

Directions:

1. Pour your witch hazel in your bottle, about half way to the top, then fill the rest with distilled water and add 20 drops of rose oil. 

2. Shake the bottle to combine the ingredients. 

3. Mist your entire face and let it soak in. Enjoy! 

(Side note: this is such a fun thing for kids to do. Bailey asks me to spritz her face on the daily with the spray, and thinks it's hilarious. Of course, this is perfectly safe to-do, which is the whole point of these chemical-free, natural DIY's!)
