DIY Essential Oil Beauty! I've GOT to try this DIY Raspberry Lemonade Sugar Lip Scrub!! I bet it tastes and feels amazing! - BusyBeingJennifer.com

A few years ago I discovered the wonderful world that is essential oils! There are a million and two (and probably more) reasons I love essential oils! And there are at least that many ways to put them to practical use! I’ve made everything from my own laundry soap, to mood/energy boosting oil blends to skin care and beauty products!

I have to admit, that last category is probably my favorite! There are just so many amazing combinations and ways to use essential oils on and in your body when it comes to your beauty routine. One of the very first DIY Beauty projects I tried was a sugar lip scrub… and since then I’ve been hooked!

I love coming up with “flavor” ideas and playing around with the process, not to mention the fantastic results! Who doesn’t love soft, kissable lips???

My latest flavor combination for a sugar lip scrub, is the stuff that summer dreams are made of! This Raspberry Lemonade concoction is Delicious with a capital D! In fact its so good, I might be using it more often than necessary, just so I can lick my lips to get a taste!

Why should you exfoliate your lips with a sugar lip scrub like this?

Exfoliating and removing the dead surface of your lips brings out new fresh layers, making lips soft, smooth and kissable! Not to mention that a smooth lip “canvas” is important when it comes to your lip cosmetics! Lip exfoliation, with something like this sugar lip scrub, helps your lips retain moisture longer, and that will helping to prevent cracked lips!

Regular use of a sugar lip scrub can help you avoid the effects of exposure to wind and cold, and chapped lips! The coconut oil provides instant moisture that will keep your lips soft and kissable too!

I’ve been on a mission over the last few weeks to spruce up the house and get our home ready for fall! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect touches to add, You won’t believe where I’ve been finding the BEST deals!!

Tips for Getting your Home Ready for Fall! - BusyBeingJennifer.com

I’ve partnered with Groupon to share some tips for getting your home ready for fall! Plus my favorite place to find great deals on Home Decor!

Tip #1 – Add Warmth with Pillows and Throws.

One of the easiest things you can do to add some fall coziness to your home! Change out the accent pillows, add some cozy throw blankets, and get ready to snuggle up!

Tip #2 – Switch to Cozy Bedding

As soon as the temperature starts to dip, its time to switch out the lighter, summer weight bedding!  Denser, warmer and heavier fall and winter bedding will definitely put you in the mood for fall!

Tip #3 – Prep Your Fall & Winter Toolbox

Go through your tool box, shed and garage and make sure your fall/winter tools are prepped and easily accessible. Move shovels and salt to the garage for easy maintenance. Make sure the leaf blower is in good working order and pull out those rakes!

Tip #4 – Clean and Prep the Fireplace  Chimney

We don’t have a fireplace *insert sad face* but yearly maintenance, if you have one, is key! The last thing you want is a houseful of smoke the first time you light up the fireplace, or worse, for your home to catch on fire!

Tip #5 – Plant Fall Bulbs for Spring Flowers

If you love seasonal flowers, now is the time to plant those fall bulbs, before the ground freezes up!

Tip #6 – Bust out the Fall Decor

Pull out your favorite Fall home decor and go to town! Now is the time to style your mantle, add leaves and pumpkins and Everything Fall to every corner of the house! Aka My favorite time of the year!

Tips to get your home ready for fall! -- “Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ― Lauren DeStefano --

When it comes to home decor, Groupon is a great site to keep in mind! They’ve got everything from blankets and pillows to custom monograms and signs! Whatever it is you’re looking for, you’re likely to find it on Groupon.com!

These tips will help you get your home ready for fall in no time flat! And then all you have to do is sit back, snuggle up, get cozy and enjoy every moment of this perfect season!
