Joyfolie: DIY Wednesday - Lace Crowns
Yesterday I posted some photos of our Luna shoes and matching clip with the crown above. Mia and I made the crown together, and today I will show you the step by step to make your own lace crown. A few notes before I begin the tutorial: this was not my original idea. Most of my tutorials are, but I found this idea via Bitter Betty Blog. You can view her tutorial here. I modified it a bit, which I will explain.
Homemade Floor (and All-Purpose) Cleaner
This homemade floor cleaner also works as an all-purpose cleaner and disinfectant! Clean nearly every surface in your home with just 5 simple ingredients. NOTE: This post started as a very simple recipe for a homemade floor cleaner. Over the years I’ve experimented and refined it to it’s current form.
LEMON DRINK for your Master Cleanseyou need:* 2 tablespoons FRESH squeezed lemon or lime juice (approx. 1/2 lemon)* 2 tablespoons genuine organic maple syrup, Grade B (the darker the better)** 1/10 teaspoon (a small pinch!) cayenne pepper, gradually increase (the more BTUs the better)* 300 - 500 ccm (10-14 oz) pure waterIn a 300ccm (10-ounce) glass (to allow for 227ccm and mixing room): 2 tablespoons fresh (and organic, if possible) lemon or lime juice (absolutely no canned or frozen juice). 2 tablespoons real (and organic, if possible) grade B or C maple syrup. (Don't use Grade A maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup. They are over-refined, which means that they are mostly refined sugars and lack essential minerals.)

All About the Lemon Juice and Maple Syrup Detox
The third time i caved in on the lemon juice and maple syrup detox diet I knew i needed help. I did not want to fail partly because i had $100 riding on it, partly because of my ego but i think it was really because I wanted it to work deep down.

Lifestyle Design Experiments
This is the place where you find all the lifestyle design experiments I'm sharing online. A lifestyle design experiment is where we take a simple idea or radical lifestyle concept and give it a test run in our lives. We're only obligated to it for 30 days, enough time to form it into a habit. After the 30 days are up, we can choose to let go of the idea if it's not serving us, or keep it. Ideally, we want to try things out which we believe will have a massive positive impact on our lives and bring ourselves to a whole new level of existence.
