craftspiration: penguin lightbulb ornament!

who doesn't love penguins? that's right. No one.  This craft is pretty self explanatory- just paint a burnt out lighbulb to look like a penguin (complete with bow tie) and add some wire to make it an ornament. Instant cuteness.

DIY: Copycat Lush Bath Bombs!

I love LUSH. But, the nearest store is an hour away and it's a bit pricey. These diy bath bombs cost less than one dollar a piece, are very easy, are good for your skin, and can be made in your own kitchen!  So why not give them a try! I got this idea from

- 1 cup of baking soda
- 3/4 cup corn starch
-1/4 cup sea salt or epsom salt
-1 cup citric acid**(also called Lemon Salt)

-a few drops of your favorite essential oil, I've been using peppermint for the holidays!
-food coloring highly concentrated with water in a spray bottle
-a mold, I like using a cupcake pan or Easter eggs
How to do it: 
-First mix all the dry ingredients together and the essential oil.
-Then, spray the food coloring mix very slightly on the dry mixture and stir. Repeat this many times until the mixture is wet enough to hold a ball shape for a little while. Don't wet the mix too much or it will fizz!
-Press the mixture densely into the molds 
- Let them dry out over night or for at least 6 hours then pop them out of the mold and enjoy! 

* these are a great holiday gift for family members, or for yourself!

Fitness and Running: Post Workout Greek Yogurt Parfait

I am always super hungry after cross country practice, but what's the point of running to be fit if you're just going to eat half your weight in junk food after? This Greek yogurt parfait replenishes salt in your body with salted nuts and satisfies my sweet tooth with honey and berries. Plus, Greek yogurt has almost double the amount of protein in regular yogurt*!
