boscia willow bark spot treatment

I was using tea tree oil as a spot treatment for blemishes, which does work well, but not over night. Plus, my skin is super dry (I usually get blemishes around the chin, which I'm told is due to hormones), so the tea tree oil sometimes dries it out way too much. So I decided to try boscia clear complexion willow bark spot treatment. After reading some reviews on sephora, I decided to try it... and I love it. It totally works for me. After I wash my face at night I use this on some problem areas, and by the morning its either gone or seriously diminished.

The applicator is also really nice. You twist the bottom and the product comes out the top with a nice soft tip. What I also love about it is that it is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. It says that the jojoba leaf, which has a combination of Vitamins C and E, work together to help reduce redness, control oil, and maintain a clear complexion. I haven't tried any of their other products, I'm pretty happy with the cleansers I have at the moment, but when I run out I'll give them a go. 

Have you tried any of their products?

DIY golden feathers

Happy first day of March. Only 20 more days until SPRING! I'm starting to get excited for all the wonderful projects I want to do, most of them outside, so some warmer weather would be nice.

I've seen pictures of these gold dipped feathers scattered over pinterest and decided to give it a try. I used to make feather jewellery (that's how my business first started, but I've since got into beading and wirework), needless to say I still have heaps of feathers. Here's how I did it.

I decided to use spray paint, I used this one, and taped away the parts I didn't want to be gold with green painters tape. I find masking tape leaves behind glue, so I spent a couple extra dollars and bought the good stuff.

Make sure you have newspaper or something down behind the feathers. I did two coats on either side. I waited a day for them to dry, but the bottle says that it dries a lot faster than that.

I was happy with the result, but next time I think I will make sure the tape is more secure, the paint ran a bit into the area I had taped off, but maybe that's normal. All in all it worked.

I think these will be great for photo-shoots and staging, or just for decoration. Now what can I spray gold next?!?

life + snow

I just thought I'd give you all a little recap on whats been going on in my life. I haven't blogged for the last couple of days: times have been busy. But not only that, it snowed! Seems so fitting that it would snow right after my "is it spring?" post. I had so much fun playing in the snow, went snowboarding, hand some snowball fights, and just enjoyed it. My body was so sore the next day! There was about two feet in higher elevations, less where I live, but still a lot of snow. Now the air is warming up and it's all melting. I'm glad that I did get some snow days in before spring, since the rest of our winter here was very mild.

As for the work part some of you know that I run a little jewellery and clothing business. The jewellery part has been going really well, for some reason I'm always motivated to create new pieces (I have been doing it for a lot longer than clothing). I've been in the works of creating my spring/summer clothing line, but I must admit that sometimes I just get so unmotivated to sew. I design, pattern and sew everything myself, and sometimes it's really hard to tell myself, "okay emily, today you are sewing." But today, I am going to sew! haha. I promise. Right after this post. Now that I told you I have to do it.

I've also been in the works with some other really fun things that I'll let you all know about soon. Hope you are doing well, and thank you for reading!
