Mason Jar Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you are scrambling for some fun, creative gifts.You should try some of these fun Mason Jar Ideas!
Dirty Diet Coke Mason Jar 
This idea was inspired by this pin.
But, I decided to make a “Utah version”. 

Find a cute Mason Jar mug. Add a can of diet coke, lime, and coconut syrup that you can put in a cute container. 
This Pedicure in a jar is fun and easy! Grab a pedicure kit from the store and put the contents in the jar. For a personal touch, I made some homemade peppermint foot soak and scrub. 
The recipes are:
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
4 Peppermint Tea Bags

1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
10 Drops of Peppermint Oil
I just used regular Acrylic Paint
After 2 coats, I used a nail file to make it look more rustic. 
Add the plant, and voila! A simple gift.
This is my favorite. It is simple to make and probably is the most meaningful gift you can give!

Peeps Easter Slime

Slime and Peeps… talk about the dream team!

When I saw this pin, I just HAD to try it! I would suggest heading over to the original pin... she has amazing pics and instructions. 

But, if you want the quick summary....

Items Needed:
5 pack of peeps (I buy double… one for the mouth, 1 for the slime) :) 
Corn Starch 
Vegetable Oil
Bowl, Tablespoon
This picture is from the Original Pin!
1.  Break apart the sleeve of peeps and add to a microwave safe bowl.
2. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the bowl of peeps. 
3. Microwave the bowl of peeps for 30 seconds.
4. Remove the bowl from the microwave and add cornstarch to the mix one tablespoon at a time, smashing it into your peeps.
5. You will want to add corn starch until the peeps don’t feel sticky anymore. I ended up using about 3 tablespoons. 

Have a HOPPY EASTER! (I am so hilarious).

A Few of My Favorite Things

For my birthday, my friend gave me a bag of things that she loves. I LOVED trying things that I didn’t know about. One of those things was this magic makeup eraser. 
You can remove your makeup with just water! And.. no joke.. it works! I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited, it made me start thinking of the “unique” things I use that maybe not everyone knows about. 

So, here are some of my favs:

Thera Cane - My trainer suggested I use this for some shoulder and neck pain I was having. It helps work out knots by pressing on various trigger points. I thought he was wacky when I saw it online but holy cow. This thing is NEVER far from my side. My whole family loves it. He has a link to it on his website:
Muff Pot - I could NOT stop laughing at my husband when he bought this on Amazon). But… he swears by it. You put it on your muffler when you go snow mobiling and while you are out in the cold, it warms up your food so when you take a break way back on a trail, you will have a nice, hot meal to eat.
Ice Stick Tray - This doesn’t take much explaining, but boy was I wondering how I never had this in my life before! I bought mine on Amazon.
Hands Free Baggie Rack Clip - This is another self-explanatory “how did I ever not have this before” find when I was cruising Amazon for cool gadgets one day! 
Salad Chopper - Can I say…I’m obsessed! You just throw your ingredients in the bowl, chop them all at once and you have a really yummy salad in almost no time.
