D.I.Y. Lip Exfoliating Scrub

Hey Lovies,

 So I have been living with really chap lips for sometime now and I have been on the hunt for a lip scrub. Yes, I know if I drink plenty of water it should help but really it doesn't. Maybe I don't drink enough water but either way I needed something to make my lips softer.
So I decided to do some research on the best lip scrubs and they all seemed to be pretty costly. I decided to go ahead and make my own and it works perfectly! If you are interested here is what you will need:
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 dab of vaseline (petroleum jelly)
and a container to mix it in (Air tight if you plan to keep it for a week)
Mix all ingredients together( It should be gritty) and then use a damp washcloth to wipe off all excess skin on your lips.
Then use your finger and apply the mixture all over your lips rubbing in for a few minutes.
Use a damp washcloth and wipe off.
TADDAH!! Your lips are ultra soft!
Now just apply your favorite lip balm.
Let me know if you try it and if it works for you. Until next time lovies......

Why Aren't I Couponing?

Hey Lovies!! Last week Wednesday I watched a show on TLC called "Extreme Couponing" and was so amazed! If you haven't watched this show it is a definate MUST watch. It is about men/women who take couponing to a whole nother level! Unreal!
After watching this show I was like " Why aren't I couponing,?" I immediately got on youtube to look up couponing videos to see how I can get started. The next morning I found everything I needed around the house to start my couponing book. Binder, football card inserts, scissors and dividers now all I needed was my coupons.
So yesterday the kids and I walked to Cold Stone and I picked up a newspaper and I was soooo excited about getting home to look at my newspaper like it had black friday sales in it or something. That is usually the only time that I buy the newspaper anyway.
I was so happy to find 5 inserts in my newspaper, the savings are endless and this comes out every week! I think next week I will buy 2 papers to stack coupons for even more savings ( anyway that's another post lol).

So I am now determined to save my family tons of money using coupons and maybe even become the new "Coupon Queen!" If you are starting out couponing or are interested in venturing out with me message me and let's do this together! Until next time lovies let the couponing begin........
