Christmas Holiday DIY Gift: Sugar Scrubs!

I don't think you quite understand how obsessed I am with these scrubs.

They smell amazing (and probably don't taste awful... I haven't tried) and they leave my skin feeling so incredibly soft.

All this with just a few ingredients I have in my cupboard and some decorations from Wal-Mart - perfect!

Send me photos of your creations on my Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #RachhLovesChristmas - I can't wait to see what you've come up with!

Recipe #1: Candy Cane Sugar Scrub
(makes a 650mL jar worth)
- 3.5 cups of sugar
- 1 cup of light olive oil
- 3-4 tsp of peppermint extract
- 4 tsp coconut oil

Recipe #2: Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Scrub
(makes a 1L jar worth)
- 3 cups of brown sugar
- 2 cups of large flake oats
- 1.5 cups of light olive oil
- 2 tbsp of vanilla extract
- 1.5 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of nutmeg

Get Ready with Me: Christmas Shopping!

Christmas is my absolute FAVOURITE time of the year, hands down.  This is Chris and my first Christmas living together so we don't have any Christmas decorations yet!  So this past weekend we went shopping and got a few things to start the process :)

Here is a video getting ready for the day: makeup, hair, outfit and a little vlogging at the store.  Hope you like!

Question for YOU: What is your #1 favourite Christmas decoration and why?
Mine is a beautiful quilted advent calendar with little quilted toys to hang up on each day in December.  My sister and I both have allergies so for our entire childhood we weren't able to eat the chocolate advent calendars so we did this instead!  I love it so much and I hope I'll be able to find something similar for my home :)

October 2012 Budget Beauty Favourites!

Like everyone else, I love a good deal.  I make it my mission to find great products on a budget that are comparable to higher end products.  And while I do adore Sephora and MAC (and have found some amazing products there over the years) this month I found myself drawn to all the products I picked up at Wal-Mart!

What are your favourite budget beauty products this month?

Taylor Swift Glamour Cover Look - Nov 2012


... no? Just me?

Well, regardless, I think you'll all agree that she looks absolutely STUNNING on the cover of Glamour's November 2012 magazine.  I really wanted to re-create the look for myself and I am super happy with the results!

What is your favourite Taylor Swift look?
