These days, bath bombs are all the rage. That is why when I saw this cool diy where you can reuse K-cups from Keurig coffee makers to make your own bath bombs, I was all over it! Recycle AND make yourself an awesome smelling homemade bath bomb!

You’ll need the all-plastic k-cups for this DIY. Clean out the cups, dump the left over coffee grounds out, and discard any of the netting in the cup. Fill the bottom of the cup with glitter or sprinkles or dried flowers anything you think would look cute on a bath bomb!2015-04-Bath-Bomb2-e1429042607773

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles or dried flowers
  • 8 ounces baking soda
  • 4 ounces citric acid
  • 4 ounces cornstarch
  • 4 ounces Epsom salts
  • ¾ teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons essential oil
  • 2 ½ teaspoons almond oil
  • 6 drops food coloring (optional)

Fill the bottom of each cup with glitter or sprinkles or dried flowers, anything you think would look cute on a bath bomb! In a bowl, combine the citric acid, baking soda, Epsom salts and cornstarch. In a separate bowl, stir together almond oil, water, essential oil, and food coloring. Pour these wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir together until the mixture begins to clump. Press the paste into the K- Cups and allow them to dry overnight. To remove the bombs from the cups, cut a slit into each cup and peel the plastic back.

Now go hop in the bath and try out one of your new fancy, homemade bath bombs! These also make great gifts.

XOXO, Chels

Christmas Gifts for your BFF

Your best friend is like your sister. Your sister from another mister, that is. When Christmas comes around, you try and get your sister something you think she will love and something that will show her how much you lover her. Likewise, you should do the same for your BFF! My advice? Nothing says “I love you” like a one-of-a-kind gift you’ve made just for her. Here are a few affordable, adorable Christmas gifts your BFF is sure to love!

  1. Homemade bath bombs: I see so many people raving about “Lush Cosmetics” and their super unique bath bombs. You know what is even better? Making them yourself! They will mean so much more when they are made with your own two hands. Here is how to make some. stickygram4
  2. Candy Bar Cake: Pick out all of her favorite candy and shape it into a “cake”! She will love it because when she is having a craving for a sweet treat, all she needs to do is pick a piece off of her “cake”!
  3. Instagram/Polaroid Magnets and Stickers: I love this idea. Make your favorite pics of you and her into magnets and stickers! Visit this site to do so: https://sticky9.com//.
  4. Super Cute Mug: You can either make her a mug or buy her one, whichever you choose! One of my friends and I always get each other mugs every Christmas. I have some pretty cute, sparkley ones from her, and other ones that are goofy! I think of her every time I use them.

None of these gifts calling your (or your best friend’s) name? Gift cards are always a smart choice, that way they can pick out whatever they want!

Merry Christmas!

XOXO, Chels
