For my birthday I decided to treat myself for a haircut. I originally went to this new place by my house. Price was good and it was so convenient for me so I went in. I’m a trained hairdresser and have not had the ‘real’ salon experience in over 7 years. Going in I decided not to share this detail about myself in case it made her nervous. [Read more…]
I absolutely love making things from scratch. When My boyfriend, Matt, and I were living our year without plastic (single use disposables & packaging) we had to make a lot of things from scratch. It’s such an adventure trying to figure out ways to do things. Sometimes you’d be surprised at how easy most things are to do from scratch.
That being said, Matt and I had to create all these christmas gifts for our family and friends sans plastic. This hot chocolate & Marshmallow duo quickly became popular as it was fairly easy and very impressive.

I cannot believe Halloween is in a week!
Halloween is on a bit of an awkward day this year for anyone older than 14. Thursday is far enough from the weekend before and obviously before the weekend following.
When are we supposed to celebrate dressing up and eating our weight in candy?
My friend had suggested doing a get together on Nov 2nd and her logic makes perfect sense. EVERYTHING that has anything to do with Halloween is at least 50% off on the 1st.
I have taken on the task of hosting this post Halloween extravaganza and hoping to nail some of these Pinterest gems.
Meghan from Domestic Sugar made these witch fingers look real and creepy using cinnamon. I will be recreating these Halloween sugar cookie staples
originally from FamilyFun Magazine this swamp juice looks interesting to say the least. Who wouldn’t want fish eggs on Halloween!?

What are you spooky plans??
I am so into DIY projects especially if they will help me save money. Making makeup remover wipes are something that has been on my list for a long time. I researched different ways to make it and from reading reviews on all the different recipes I came up with my very own.
Most of the recipes I came across explained how to use a paper towel roll and cutting it in half. Let’s be honest here…who has time or patience for that!?! I definitely do not. Since this posed a problem I quickly troubleshooted and came up with an easy solution, Cotton pads. I got mine at the dollar store at $1.00 for 50. I now felt confident that I can attempt this recipe with out the mess and frustration that ensues by sawing a paper towel roll.
Here’s the video how
My Pinterest vision turned reality when I found these two blank canvasses in the apartment. I used tape and three colours to make a geometrical pattern. I posted on instagram (@SimplySarahxoxo) and everyone loved it and wanted to know how. I decided to add two small canvasses to make the ‘L’ shaped canvas into a square and film a DIY how to video.
Here it is 🙂
This DIY makeup brush cleaning board is so amazing! I got this idea from SecretLifeOfABioNerd on Youtube.
The Idea was thought of after the Sigma brush cleaning mitt came out. Its a good idea and I like that its a mitt but the con is that its 40$. That’s way to much to even spend on that IMO.
This is what the Sigma brushes look like:
Looks pretty cute but again…$40.00
I’ve put together a DIY video on how to make your board.
All you need is a plastic clipboard (or similar) and a glue gun with glue.
