Puppy-Sporin Salve for Scrapes & Scratches

These days it’s not hard to identify me as a new puppy owner—my scratch and bite covered hands and forearms give me away pretty quickly (well, I’ve either got a puppy or a passion for naked arm wresting with rose bushes). I’ve heard puppy teeth described as staples, and I’m inclined to agree. Not standard staples for paper, though—no, no. We’re talking those heavy duty woodworking staples coming from a compressed air powered staple gun. OW. Lottie is getting better with biting (or not biting, as it were) as the days go by, but according to the interwebs, she won’t lose her puppy teeth until May or June, which means when she misses a toy and lands a bite on my hands instead, I’m going to be squealing (and bleeding) for a while. Hence, this salve.

Deodorizing Yoga Mat Spray

I’ve been stepping up my yoga game over the last year or so, and I’m thrilled to notice I’ve gotten stronger and more flexible, and can now do a few things I thought were impossible a year ago. As I’ve gained muscle mass, though, it would seem my yoga mat has started to gain a small, stinky ecosystem. Oops. Time to evict that, pronto—bring on the Deodorizing Yoga Mat Spray!

Recipes & Ideas for Spring Cleaning

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that it’s finally warm out. It’s supposed to be 28°C (82°F) tomorrow! That’s amazing! That’s nearly double the average temperature for this time of year, which is to say spring has sprung decidedly early for this part of the world. My tulips started coming up in early March, I had to mow my lawn before April was out, and I’ve already earned my first sunburn (oops). All this warm weather and these sunny breezes are making me think about freshening up my house and my wardrobe, and while I’m no Martha Stuart, here’s what I’m doing these days.

Clean Dreams Pillow Mist

Maria sent in a request for this lovely essential oil powered pillow mist, and I just loved the sound of it. The original was designed to help prevent breakouts caused by a dirty pillowcase, but with its lovely blend of essential oils, it’ll also help lull you into a citrus-scented sleep in no time.

Christmas Eve Pillow Mist

While I was dreaming up this year’s Christmas projects, I really loved the idea of a Christmas Eve Pillow Mist—something you could spritz over your bed before crawling between the sheets and listening for reindeer on the roof. I decided to give it a bit of a twist, though, and stray a touch from the typical Christmas scent blends.
