DIY Mascara will Lengthen your Eyelashes (so they say!)

What you need

Wash an old mascara container and fill with:

1/4 of the container with Castor Oil

1/2 Vitamin E Oil

1/4 Aloe Vera Gel

Mix the concoction together as well as you can with your mascara wand, and apply a light layer to lashes (or brows!) every night before bed.

Castor oil thickens your lashes while aloe vera gel lengthens. Vitamin E accelerates length. After one month, you’ll notice stronger, longer, more beautiful eyelashes.

My eyelashes are pretty much kaput and with those other mascara formulas having a bunch of side effects I think this may be the way to go.

Augh! At-Home Bloomin’ Onion Sauce! I could literally drink this. Or y’know, I could just make it alongside this 5 star Bloomin Onion recipe. Or also drink this!

So this recipe is primarily for those with an asian market close by, of whom I am very very jealous. But there are subs for those of us who don’t, huzzah!

Above is a verbatim diction of what came out of my mouth when I saw this recipe for Stout and Sriracha Barbeque Sauce. I am having difficulty forming coherent sentences and controlling my salivary glands at the moment.

Talk amongst yourselves.

I’ll give you a topic.

DIY Summer Skin Care


Try any of these three masks for intense hydrating and firming, exfoliation and clarity, or for sensitive dry skin. Each has three or less ingredients available at your local grocer (but you may have to go to a specialty store for that rose water or you could try your hand at making your own.)

So I currently live within reasonable walking distance to a Chipotle. This is a big first for me. I really enjoyed Chipotle at my parents’ place but you had to drive to get there and I’m extra lazy when I’m back at my parents’ and plus, they pick the meals. Then at my small college there was one 15 minutes away in another college town, but it was a college town of a state university. When there’s only Chipotle in an hour and a half radius for two universities (meaning 35,000 undergrads alone and this isn’t counting locals and the community college) no one is ever getting a burrito, ever.

So now I have this at my fingertips, but I understand and care for those who may not and to prove this here is a recipe for the rice from Chipotle! On the rice recipe page there is also barbacoa beef and pork, as well as pork carnitas and chicken ropa veija. Disfrutáis!
