Stretch Mark Remover DIY Update

Hey Friends!! I know everyone is anticipating this update. For the past 21 days I have been testing out Stretch mark remover DIY’s. I have started with 2 and if they don’t work I will move on to another 2 to try until I find one that works for me and for y’all!! IMG_1287This is where I started. I know that I don’t have the worst stretch marks in the world but honestly they still bother me. I didn’t get a single stretch mark until a week before I delivered!! How annoying is that?!?!?! Any ways when I ran my hand over my legs I could feel the uneven-ness of my skin and seeing that whiteish and purple/red coloring. I hate it!! I know some say to embrace it but why not be confident about them while trying to remove them? haha So after 21 days I can see a difference!!

It is not perfect but my skin has become more smooth and less uneven. Still not perfect. and the coloring is much better. IMG_1409This is the thigh I have been using the cocoa butter mixture on. Check out my post on DIY stretch mark remover for the recipe. Yes you can see I still have some marks but trust me it is much better!!FullSizeRender(10)This last picture is of my left thigh where I have been using the vitamin E. Vitamin E has been working soooo well! I have been super impressed with both of these remedies. I have to say they really do work. The key is patience and consistency. If you can stick with it you can have super smooth legs or anywhere on your body really!

Lastly I am working on reformulating the cocoa butter mixture to be a little more user friendly. It is a solid lotion that melts into the skin. I think for my next batch I will add vitamin E to it and also use molds. Like I say in the past few posts. I am OBSESSED with this homemade cocoa butter lotion. OMG just sooooo good!

Okay y’all that is all for my half way update! I’m excited to see the results at the end of the 45 days!!

The Crafting begins..

I have always loved crafting whether its photography and scrapbooking or restoring furniture. With little man growing everyday I thought I would start sewing my own projects. I have always known how to sew and I’m great at mending little things in clothing and making things like pillow cases but I have stepped it up!

The first project I have done is a teether bib.

I made them in this super cute bandana style and they are even reversible!! I was very proud of my self. I even hand sewed the teether on! So you can buy them online (Nuby 2 Piece Bibs) I did and they are cute and that is definitely the easy way! I bought  10pc Teether Bibs baby Teether for 10$ on amazon (like everything I own, I’m obsessed with amazon) and I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some fabric on sale. Now I can make tons of bibs. I probably invested about 20$ but can make about 15 bibs vs paying 5$ for one.

Either way I am super proud of myself!! and Bub loves it!!!
