Help Support Humblebee & Me

Become a patron, make a one-time donation, and buy my book!

Want to help support Humblebee & Me? Thank you! This has become my full time job, so in addition to helping me cover hosting and ingredient costs you’ll also be helping me pay my rent, feed my dog, and purchase groceries.

If you would like to contribute on an on-going basis you can become a Patron, and in return for your support you’ll receive special patron-only benefits like faster comment replies, exclusive weekly updates, sneak-peeks, monthly Q&As, and more.

I’m afraid I don’t have a one-time contribution option at this time. I used to use PayPal for this, but they had a nasty habit of freezing my account and requiring documents that sometimes didn’t exist to get the account back, so I deleted my PayPal account.

You can also help support me by purchasing my book, Make it Up: The Essential Guide to DIY Makeup and Skin Care, By Marie Rayma, creator of HumblebeeandMe.com. It is available all over the world in both a physical and e-book version!

Thank you so much for your support!

Winter Wonderland Hand & Body Lotion

Today's gift-able holiday DIY is a powdery, silky, fragrant Winter Wonderland Hand & Body Lotion that I'm just obsessed with. I find hand and body lotion is quite a good gift as it's a product many people already use (so it's already part of their day-to-day life...
