DIY Skull Bath Fizzies

Just in time for October, the best month of the year, here's a Halloween DIY. I'm also posting this in celebration of my first day of unemployment. Yay! 

These skull bath fizzies are made just like the yellow bath fizzies I did awhile back. These have a faux cement look I love. 

1 C baking soda
1/2 C citric acid
3/4 C cornstarch 
1/4 C Epsom salts
1 T coconut oil, melted
Lavender essential oil 6 drops
Spearmint essential oil 4 drops
Red & blue food coloring
Water spray bottle
Rubber molds

I mixed together all of the dry ingredients in a glass bowl. In a separate bowl I mixed together the essential oils and coconut oil. I dropped about 10 drops of blue food coloring into the oil mixture and 6 of the red and did my best to mix it together. With this batch I wanted them to be purple but it just wouldn't work out. I would have had to put a shit ton of coloring in and I didn't want to do that. When I made the yellow cubes they came out a pretty nice yellow but this time the color just didn't want to show up. I rather love the cement look of them though.

After mixing the oil parts with the dry ingredients, I sprayed some water into the mix and worked it in with my hands until it started to come together. You don't want it to be too wet or the fizzy aspect will take over and they won't work. You want it to form together when you squeeze it in your hands but not too dry. If it's too dry spray some more water in it. The spray bottle helps distribute the water evenly and keeps you from adding too much. 

Add it to your molds and be sure to pack it in well. (That's what she said)

Gently remove from molds and let dry overnight. 

So, what's the point of the food coloring if it didn't show up? Well, when you put it in the bath water it will show up as a light purple. Fun! No? Shut up.

We went camping in July

These are way over due. It was one of the nicest times I've ever had camping. I have two regrets; no photos of our CRAZY jeep crawl & no photos of my parents.

7 Things

1. There is this station that recently changed from alternative to old-school hip hop & R&B here in Utah. It's the SHIT! What is crazy (at least to me) is that I've been working on an old school playlist like this in my iTunes so that I could have it on my phone. Tyrone and I have been reminiscing about this music for awhile now, so I wanted to make a list. We've been turning Blackstreet on and having our own car karoke fun. Between the two of us we have a ton of this music. I don't know how long it's been since the switch on this station but I am so glad I found it. Tyrone and I have been creaming our jeans over it. They're playing anything from the 80's, 90's and early 200's -  A Tribe Called Quest, Blackstreet, Aliyah, TLC, Brian Mc-freaking-Knight, and Missy Eliot!

2. I got laid off last week. I'm not quite ready to talk about it on here. I have until October 1st.

3. On the plus side we are going on vacation in October and I can't freaking wait. We were going to take the dogs because I just couldn't bear leaving both of them with someone only because Mortisha is a handful. But, I have done some major begging and ass-kissing to get my mom to watch them and she said she would. Now it will be like a real vacation. Trying to get a hotel and thinking about how much time they would be spending in the car activated the pool of dormant ulcers I have chilling in my stomach.

4. Last night Mortisha started humping Fred. I had no idea girl dogs did this. What the hell for? Is it a dominance thing? She doesn't have a penis, WHY WOULD SHE WANT TO DO THAT? It's gross.

5. She also pooped this morning in the bedroom RIGHT AFTER we brought her in the house from doing the same damn thing outside.

6. Enjoying this.

7. I got an early birthday gift from Tyrone. He replaced my nameplate necklace that broke awhile back. It's an upgraded 100% gold and double thickness. This thing shines like my greasy forehead. I'm glad to finally have my G-status back up.
