Random Friday Favorites | Things I’ve Been Loving Lately #33

Happy Friday Lovelies ♥

I hope you’ve all had a great week and are excited for the weekend ahead! It’s feeling like straight up summer here in California and I am sooo not happy about it. Where is all the rain?! We are drought city so if you have some rain to spare, please send it on over. Anyway, aside from that, I’m looking forward to trying out a new fitness TRX class this weekend at a nearby fitness studio – anyone tried it? If you have, let me know your tips in the comments; I’m a little nervous! Aside from that, I’ll be binge-watching season 5 of Lost Girl because I am just that addicted to TV. What’s in store for you this weekend? This week’s RFF’s is all about DIY recipes you can do to save money this spring and summer 🙂 I hope you find them helpful! I’m sharing my top picks from online and tons that I’ve done on the blog in the past ♥

Natural Plant Oils that Offer Natural Sun Protection

DIY Projects for Spring


DIY Natural Citronella Bug Repellent Candle – Free People Blog

This candle looks amazing and I’m all for repelling insects! I swear, I am a bug’s favorite lunch. Without fail, I’m always the one getting bit by spiders, mosquitoes, and stalked by flies whenever the weather is on the warmer side. It drives me totally nuts so I’ll definitely be doing this DIY!

The BEST DIY Hair Mask for Damaged, Dry Locks 


DIY Fluoride Free Toothpaste – Teamotoo

This is the first DIY I’ve come across for toothpaste and with my new obsession with natural oral care and self-dentistry, I’m all for trying this one! The recipe doesn’t seem like it’d be too difficult either, though a few of the ingredients you may need to purchase online beforehand.

DIY Facial Oil-Blotting Tissue Papers


Beauty Ice Cubes – Hello Natural

I love beauty ice cubes whenever the warmer months hit because they can feel so refreshing and cooling; a lot like frozen face toners, if you will. This cucumber recipe looks amazing and they also have one using green tea! Both are amazing for cooling inflammation, toning pores, and calming redness.

DIY Natural Bronzing Oil for Summer


DIY Sunscreen – Scratch Mommy

I’ve seen a ton of sunscreen recipes online in the past few years, but this one seems really good and refined with natural ingredients. I like the idea of making my own sunscreen, especially because it’s so expensive!

    the DIY sunscreen makes me so nervous because I burn so easily and I’m paranoid I’d mix it wrong and would be a lobster! Those face blotting sheets look awesome though!

      I know what you mean! I get nervous about DIY projects, in general, but I thought it’s worth a try. It looks like a good formula. If that bothers you, but you want a natural option, try this one: http://tidd.ly/32c15378 it’s made by Rainwater Botanicals, one of my favorite etsy shops and it uses natural ingredients and mineral zinc. hope this helps! Glad you like my face blotting DIY 😀

    These beauty ice cubes sound like they would be fun to use. Especially where I live in the sunny south. 🙂

    I’ll have to try that DIY tumeric mask. And I have been intrigued about the effectiveness of naturally occurring SPF in oils.

      It’s a lovely mask and it’s super effective! using natural plant oils is a great way to extend the use of your SPF, but being really pale, I don’t think I’d ever use them on their own. That said, I love using plant oils mixed with SPF to get a more natural coverage and help blend out white cast.

    What a great list! These DIY beauty ideas sound like great ones to try out! I have a pretty simple weekend planned and hope to find some time to scrapbook a few pages!

    I would like to try my own sunscreen but then I worry about it actually working!

    1. May 5, 2015 at 8:38 AM

      I know what you mean! Natural sunscreens can work just as well as store bought ones, but it can be intimidating.

    How did you like the Tumeric Face Mask? I’ve seen it floating around and have thought about trying it out but I didn’t know if the benefits would actually happen?

      Love it! It works well as a pick-me-up for my skin. It definitely helps brighten up dullness, fight breakouts, and feels very stimulating on the skin. Everyone’s skin is different so it’s hard to say what benefits you would see, but that’s what I experienced. Hope this helps!

    I am not the best with DIY projects. I am always so fascinated by how easy it seems to others. #CC

      Me either, but somehow I keep trying haha. Honestly, I think some people are just more craft and meticulous than others. Or that’s what I tell myself LOL.

    It’s so important to take care of your skin! I might have to try some of these. Thanks for linking up to #HomeMattersParty

      I totally agree 🙂 These are awesome recipes too!
