At the moment, where I will house my Snapple® Real Facts posts (we drink a lot of Snapples at home).


Holiday Wreath DIY



When I was just in grade school, I remember having to bring to class a wire hanger and a box of fold over sandwich bags and we made wreaths. Every once in a while, I’ll have a worthwhile memory like this and get excited to recreate the moment with my daughter. Today, Jazlynn and I made a couple of wreaths to hang in our home.

What you need to make 1 wreath:

  • 1 wire hanger 
  • 50-75 fold over sandwich bags
  • energetic hands (it can take 20-30 minutes to finish one)

1st Bend the hanger to create a round shape (the base of your wreath).

2nd Take one sandwich bag and tie once around the wire hanger.

3rd Slide bag, and tie another.

4th Continue adding bags until the hanger is full.

5th Ta dah! Add a few ribbons (can be stapled or tied between bags) for customization.

Before and after makeup

Here’s my before and after makeup today.


I was just curious in the difference before I put on my bareMinerals for the day.

My dream is to stop wearing makeup and be happy in my own skin.

First on the list is getting back to drinking 8 glasses of water a day… While I find a good dermatologist in the area.
