I love this in a way that suddenly reminds me of watching poltergeist with my sister when we were kids.

DIY Knockoff Anthropologie Rhino Bag Tutorial from Confessions of a Secret Crafter. This isn’t as hard as it looks - you can use an inexpensive purse, cut through the upper layers of the flap and then lay in the leather. For Anthropologie’s Cross Body Rhino Bag go here. For a huge archive of knockoffs go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/knockoff

Love this! I imagined it being a lot more difficult, but this seems pretty simple.

Natural Cleaning | Henry Happened

There are lots of reasons you might prefer to use all natural products for cleaning - for me it’s mainly health reasons! When you suffer from asthma, you find that many cleaning products can set off an attack. Of course, there is also the impact on our environment and general health. The unfortunate thing is that often you find that all natural cleaners just don’t do as well as the chemical filled commercial products. So I was excited to see a post on HH about a grease-fighting dish soap. HH has done the hard work and research to work out how to get a good natural dishsoap that will get your dishes clean without the residue. From there, I went on a click frenzy through her other posts which include Citrus Garbage Disposal refreshers, Naturally Antibacterial All Purpose Cleaner, and 5 Naturally Antibacterial Bathroom Cleaners. You’ll need to go out and purchase a few things like liquid castile soap (Dr Bronner is a fantastic Australian company that makes liquid castile soap & other beautiful castile products!) but in the end your body, environment and house will thank you! I’m planning on getting some castile soap tomorrow and making my own hand soap and some soft scrub for my bathroom!

I’m big on using natural products as well. My two jobs before teaching were in making/selling natural body-care and home products, and as such I have become a bit obsessed with the natural lifestyle! Nothing like learning the effects of chemical-based cleaners, lotions, and potions to confirm a love for natural products!
