DIY home scents!

I'm a SUCKER for yummy smelly goods. 

A. I don't like paying for them
B. I'm attempting to go more "natural" since baby Ireland was born
C. I like trying new things

So...I searched and scoured pinterest for a DIY solution. 

Voila! 

There was an abundance of tips and ideas!

Here's what I decided on. 

Ingredients:

Fresh rosemary
Fresh lemons
Vanilla extract 
Water

HOW TO:

Fill a pot a little over half way with water. 
Add pieces of rosemary (I chopped away at my plant in the front yard!)
Slice lemons and squeeze juice in water
Add about 2 tablespoons of vanilla
Let simmer for however long you want it to smell good!
Refill water as needed. 
The mixture is good for about 2 days!

ENJOY!



Now now now. I added more vanilla because I really enjoyed the vanilla aroma. 
Our dinner guests (Remember Kylie from Being Is Beautiful blog?) said the house smelled "great!"

Aren't they cute!?
I'm looking forward to creating a fall and winter blend. 
Any ideas for me???
HAPPY FRIDAY!

PS!

MVP and I are grabbing dinner and drinks tonight with some friends. 
Ireland is excited to visit with yaya and Pa and mommy and daddy are excited for a night out!
What lip color shall I wear?!
