DIY Beach Spray

 I always wanted the Beach Spray for your hair that gives you the just came off of the beach wavy look, but there so dang expensive! So this is a recipe you can use to make your own! 

Things You'll Need



  • Plastic spray bottle
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 8 oz. water
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp. coconut oil, olive oil or light conditioner
  • Lemon Juice
  • 3 drops essential oil (optional)
Instructions
  • Pour water into the plastic spray bottle.
  • Add sea salt, NOT table salt. The more salt you add, the more "crunchy," textured and beach like your hair will feel.
  • Add moisturizer to combat the drying factor of the salt. Use coconut oil, olive oil or light conditioner. Avoid adding more than a teaspoon because it can weigh down your hair.
  • Add a few drops of lemon juice to your mixture if you plan on being out in the sun at all. Cute hair and highlights, Score! :)
  • Add essential oil for fragrance and additional benefits. Choose your favorite oil based on scent and healing properties. (optional)
  • Replace the top to the bottle, closing tightly. Shake the bottle and its ingredients vigorously to get the ingredients to mix, otherwise the oil will remain on the surface and the salt on the bottom. You will also need to shake the bottle before each use.
  • Store the mixture in the fridge when not in use. (This is a MANDATORY step, I didn't think it was a big deal and skipped it one time... bad idea. Who knew water could mold? ;) 
I hope it works for you as great as it does for me!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
