    DIY Sea Salt Spray

    Don't you love the way your hair behaves after a day at the beach?

    I had no idea there are actually hair products out there that mimic the effects of a day at the beach until I discovered a wonderful blog, Bridgey Widgey . . . Life's A Party!

    Bridget has developed a DIY version of a sea salt hair texturizer that will give you those lovely beachy waves as shown in the photo.

    Here's her recipe:

    Empty Spray Bottle
    3 teaspoons Epsom Salt
    3 squirts Water-Based Hair Gel
    4 ounces Tap Water

    Just load your ingredients into your spray bottle!

    How to make nail polish stay on longer

    After reading the article on one of my favorite blogs, All Women Stalk, I tried to remember the last time I actually went to a salon for a manicure.  It has been so long I don't remember . . . my frugality gets the best of me.  I'd rather spend the money on a good supply of nail polishes and manicure supplies.  

    If you are like me, you will love the article on tips to make your polish stay on longer.

    The Red Dresser!

    Look at what you can do with someone's cast off furniture!  I've been thinking about painting our wood bedroom furniture for a while and since I saw this dresser, I am convinced.  Love love love the red, although I was originally thinking of glossy black with gold-leafed hardware.

    It is amazing what a little paint and effort does for a tired piece of furniture.
