Green Tea Sugar Scrub

A couple of weeks ago I discovered Instagram and posting pictures on Instagram requires a phone. And because I can use my Instagram pictures for my blog, too, I've neglected my camera for quite some time now. So much time that I don't know where I've left it. Or maybe I've even lost it. When we went to Paris last week, I wanted to bring it, and that was the first time I actually missed my camera. I feel a bit guilty now, because the thing is: I love my camera. It's small, does anything I want, pictures are always sharp and uploading is easy. Except when you want your pictures on Instagram, and that's why I didn't use it for the last couple of weeks. So, please, pray for me I'll find it!

This week I made new scrub. As you may remember, my favorite scrub is my homemade Lavender Sugar Scrub, but I was in for something new and made Green Tea Scrub this time.

Here's the recipe:
1 cup of Cocos Oil
1 cup of Granulated Sugar
8 teaspoons of Green Tea (strong and cooled)
1 teabag of Green Tea
drop of Lemon Essential Oil

Mix all the ingredients together and it's ready to use!

More Halloween Projects



After a time consuming project such as the cross stitch Sugar Skull from last week now a fast one: a drawing of a cute evil pumpkin.

And because we are renovating again, I had to clear out a closet and found the Hama Beads. I couldn't withstand temptation and had to make something for Halloween. I found some simple patterns and hoopla, a ghost and a pumpkin!


In the same closet I found something I made a couple of years ago for Halloween,  before I started blogging. Don't know why I kept it, but since I still like it, it's hanging from the kitchen wall.


As I remember it right, I found this owl at Martha Stewart.

Fall

We had real good weather the month of september, which made up for the really worse month of august, that was full of wind and rain, more wind and rain and even more wind and rain. The weather was so good actually that I could have my Ibiza Style series totally appropriate (Ibiza being an island in the Mediterranean Sea, that people go to mostly in the summer, when the weather is warm).


Fall still hasn't come here yet. At the end of summer I'm looking forward to baking speculaas and pumpkin cakes, to light up the candles, to going back to living inside, but at the end of october it's still around 20 degrees Celsius here. So, I have to create my own fall for now, I guess.

Today I bought ball chrysantemums and pumpkins for the garden.


Drew some leaves and pumpkins on the windows with chalk paint, as you can see in the back of the picture.



Bought some dried hydragaea, too. 



I took out my crocheted Cat Pumpkin, that I made a couple of years ago. Just in time for Halloween.

Drew some pumpkins on the blackboard on my kitchendoor as well.

Only thing to wait for now is fall itself...
