DIY: Hillbilly Washing Machine

This is a great method for off-the-grid low-tech clothes washing or, in my case, diaper washing as part of the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge.

The total cost to make this washer was around $6, and about 10 minutes. The amount of time it takes to operate depends entirely on the quantity of clothing and the type of material being washed. Denim, for example, will take more effort than t-shirts.

But where will the Angels Sit?

Do you ever wonder where the angels sit? When people come to visit with their angels.  The door banging twice. Girl. Angel. Because, really, there is only so  much room in my little house. Angels take up as much room as a person though a lot less air.  Even though an angel can change the atmosphere in the air in the wink of a wimple.  And they must come in,  they do not like to be left out in the weather. Have you ever seen an angel who has been left out in the rain – it is a terrible sight. Crumpled like tissue paper, poor things – it takes an age for them to dry out and puff back up.  And for obvious reasons it is very important not to let your angel get too close to the fire to dry out. So you can’t just leave them outside when they visit…

I know as February comes to a close everyone is getting over having been sick. As we have properly passed around every grocery cart germ February had to offer.. we are left with a nagging cough. So simple you may doubt me but I have had awesome results… all you do is rub 4-6 drops of Eucalyptus oil on the soles of their feet. (I am sure there is a very spiritual post in there… and you are…

Lately, you might have seen featured in a lot of my Instagram posts these perfect Charlotte Tilbury MATTE Revolution lipsticks and today I’m back with another Charlotte Tilbury sweet treat – a full review! I hope you don’t mind it! Haha!…

That is simply because I love them so much. The formula on these is well… just different than anything I have tried before, different than any matte lipstick in my collection.

First of all they’re matte and long lasting on the lips but not at all drying. Even if they are matte they still manage somehow to look luminous and feel lightweight on the lips.

All the colours are incredibly pigmented and they literally glide on the lips thanks to the amazing blend of hydrating and nourishing oils in the formula ( orchid and lipstick tree extract, that is! ). One swipe will actually be enough to pack on…
