Freebie Friday...Kinda...

Hey Lovies! Lord knows I LOVE free stuff, thigns I can get done on the cheap-cheap and of course D-I-Y projects.

So ummm the spirit of saving a little more here and there I have some fun little recipes you can try at home for little to no cost to you, especially if you already have these items in your pantry or fridge.

Ciao Lovies and see ya at the TOP!

Make Your Own Lip Gloss:

No time to run to the store, no ends (throwback term for the word 'money') to run to the MAC counter and spend about $15.00 on a tube of lip gloss? Welp...never fear, I'm here to tell you how YOU, yes YOU can make your own lip gloss. If you have vaseline and Kool-Aid,'re in the business and you can start making your own lip gloss.

Simply take a scoop of vaseline, not too much...put it in the microwave for about ten to fifteen seconds...add the Kool-Aid for color and BAM! Your own lip gloss...Wasn't that easy?


Make Your Own Acne Treatment:

Everybody hates a pimple, right? Well, here's a quick and easy recipe to help you fight the little monsters that tend to show up on your face at the most inopportune time. All you need is one uncoated aspirin tablet and four drops of water. Take the aspirin tablet, crush it, add the four drops of water and apply the paste to the affected area. Let the paste sit on the affected area for about three minutes and then rinse with cold water.
If you're having a serious break out, make a mask...follow the same steps, just use more crushed aspirin and more water. Easy, right?

Oh I forgot to mention, this concoction can also be used to reduce pores and prevent future outbreaks! Man, gotta love a little aspirin!

Last one, lovies...

Teeth Whitener:

Forget Crest White Strips! Make your own teeth whitener by taking a cap full of peroxide and swish it around in your mouth for a couple of minutes, spit it out and follow up with a swig of water and *TING!* your teeth are as white as Madea's...HELLUR...GOOD MORNTING!
