Unless you’re new around these parts (and if ya are, Hello! How’s it hanging?) You’ve likely picked up on my coffee obsession. And I really do mean obsession… I go to bed dreaming of the first cup that I’ll get to have the next morning! Almost as excited about that first sip, as a kid thats been promised a trip Disney World the next day.

I am a Coffee Lover.

In every sense of the word! I love the way its smells. I love the way it feels. I love the way the hot mug warms my fingers. But most of all I love the way it tastes!

Which is totally weird because until I moved to Texas a few years ago, I didn’t like anything about coffee! And then one day I woke up and randomly decided to give it a try… out of sheer boredom. And you know what they say….

DIY Essential Oil Beauty! I've GOT to try this DIY Raspberry Lemonade Sugar Lip Scrub!! I bet it tastes and feels amazing! - BusyBeingJennifer.com

A few years ago I discovered the wonderful world that is essential oils! There are a million and two (and probably more) reasons I love essential oils! And there are at least that many ways to put them to practical use! I’ve made everything from my own laundry soap, to mood/energy boosting oil blends to skin care and beauty products!

I have to admit, that last category is probably my favorite! There are just so many amazing combinations and ways to use essential oils on and in your body when it comes to your beauty routine. One of the very first DIY Beauty projects I tried was a sugar lip scrub… and since then I’ve been hooked!

Why should you exfoliate your lips with a sugar lip scrub like this?

Exfoliating and removing the dead surface of your lips brings out new fresh layers, making lips soft, smooth and kissable! Not to mention that a smooth lip “canvas” is important when it comes to your lip cosmetics! Lip exfoliation, with something like this sugar lip scrub, helps your lips retain moisture longer, and that will helping to prevent cracked lips!

Regular use of a sugar lip scrub can help you avoid the effects of exposure to wind and cold, and chapped lips! The coconut oil provides instant moisture that will keep your lips soft and kissable too!

Tip #3 – Prep Your Fall & Winter Toolbox

Go through your tool box, shed and garage and make sure your fall/winter tools are prepped and easily accessible. Move shovels and salt to the garage for easy maintenance. Make sure the leaf blower is in good working order and pull out those rakes!

Tip #4 – Clean and Prep the Fireplace  Chimney

We don’t have a fireplace *insert sad face* but yearly maintenance, if you have one, is key! The last thing you want is a houseful of smoke the first time you light up the fireplace, or worse, for your home to catch on fire!
