Thrifty Thursdays

thrifty thursdays

I was holding my daughter the other day when I noticed there were sparkles all over her. I didn’t remember taking her to a strip club, so I was confused as to why she was covered in glitter. Then I looked at my arms and realized that the lotion I had been wearing for a few months now was sparkly. I guess that’s what “shimmer” lotion means.

The lotion is from Marc Jacobs and is my favorite scent ever. It’s a gift that my aunt gives me every year on my birthday, because I used to always take hers when I lived with her. I love wearing it when I go out and about, but I need something for around the house. I don’t really want to buy any other lotions, so I looked into how to make my own lotions. Turns out, it’s pretty thrifty and will last a while. PERFECT! Here are some tutorials.
