I’m all about beauty on a budget. Sure, every once in a while I like to splurge on deluxe cruelty-free skincare goodies at the store, but for the most part, I like to just whip up my own beauty products from scratch at home… saves me some cheddah, it’s quick and easy, and I feel like a bad-ass makin’ my own shiz. Na mean?

Today’s DIY beauty recipe features one of my all-time fave ingredients evah—oatmeal! Aside from being tasty and nutritious, it also works wonders for your skin (it smooths, tones, hydrates and helps fight acne).

Oatmeal scrub ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of  steel cut oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of plain soy yogurt

Combine all of your ingredients and then apply the scrub to your face, gently scrubbing in a circular motion. Feel free to wait five minutes before rinsing if you prefer to use this as a mask. Badda bing badda boom! Enjoy your beautiful glowing skin.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall.

Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
