My favourite braid that you will fall in love with! I actually had a braid expert come by my house one day and teach me about 10 different braids I could do on myself or on my girls! And now I'll pass this on to you! Thank you @samshairband for being a fabulous braid queen and teaching me a few amazing hair tricks!

PAINTED FLORAL PUMPKINS

And just like that, fall is here. As the leaves change to rich tones of amber, rusty golds and deep reds, and the breeze gets cooler by the day, I can't help but think 'OMGAWD WINTER IS COMING!" Since I'm not quite ready to say hello to this colour palette or farewell to summer, I decided to celebrate Autumn with just that in mind.  Its still all sunshine and flowers here my friends.

To paint these lovely little floral pumpkins, I picked up some craft paint from the dollar store. Its really easy to work with, washes out of most things and you can't beat the price. One of the most important things about painting is your colour palette. I always line up my paints and see how they look together and then stick within my selection.  I painted a solid colour coat on both pumpkins and then I practiced a few different flower styles on some paper before committing to my actual pumpkin. For this project in particular I do like that the flowers don't look perfect. Its gives it a warm arts and craft vibe.

See a visual step by step of how I painted a pumpkin below!

Always love to see what you're up to #ladyhayesdiy

Happy painting!!

FLORAL BATH BOMBS

I definitely have a soft spot for bath time. Its such a great way to wind down my babes for bed, and if I can sneak in a bath alone?!!! Oh my gawd, talk about heaven. I always like having some sort of bath time treat on hand though cause you never know when your family might say "Hey Mama, take 20 and here's a hot bath!" Hint hint.

These bath bombs are soooo pretty and soooo simple to make. Also, what a lovely gift idea right?! Most of these ingredients can be found in your homes maybe with the exception of citric acid. I found some at the Bulk Barn here in Toronto but most bulk and health food stores should have it. The citric acid is what will make it fizz, and the coconut oil will leave your skin feeling divine.

So pour yourself a glass of wine, put on some Father John Misty and and toss one of these Floral Bath Bombs into a warm bath. Take some deep breaths and some time for you.
