Hi everyone, You know I love a good DIY face mask and the baking soda & orange juice mask is one that I have to share. This mask is perfect for acne-prone skin; it will eliminate blackheads and oil. Baking soda is a great acne-fighter and exfoliator. And the acid in orange juice tightens pores while the vitamin C brightens skin.
My Story Years ago, I was just a little girl with very thin hair. At school, my friends always laughed at me since my hair couldn't grow thicker and cover the scalp. What a pity! I was trying various methods to get thicker hair.

There are several big name commercial treatments for itchy scalp and dandruff, but most of them are made with harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment and your health. It is understandable that folks who suffer from itchy scalp or dandruff would be willing to try just about anything to make the itching go away and to avoid embarrassing flakes in their hair or on their clothes. But before you reach for that expensive dandruff shampoo or that chemical-laden scalp treatment, check out these natural, do-it-yourself itchy scalp and dandruff treatments that are inexpensive and much eco-friendlier. You don't need to purchase expensive specialty shampoos and scalp treatments to have a flake-free and non-itchy scalp. Avoid the unnecessary packaging, harsh chemicals and the expense by trying all natural at home remedies that have been used for generations.
Baking soda is most often used for deodorizing refrigerators and, of course, baking . This multi-tasker also has medicinal uses, can scrub your tub and – surprise! – can be used to green up your beauty routine. While some people swear by ditching the shampoo all together and using baking soda instead, my trial of that last year didn’t go so well.

Although this might be in complete contradiction with my ramblings on New Year's resolutions , I've been inspired by motivational and positive quotes that, in just a few words, ring of optimism and good cheer. I like to think of them as an incentive, a reminder, or simply an intention that guides my days. In the selfish perspective of cheering myself up, I designed three potential mottos: "look up" (that seems to be the words I need to live by lately), "create" and "let your heart sing". As I was trying to think of a way to incorporate these designs (or one of them) into my daily life, the idea of transferring them onto a canvas tote bag occurred to me.
