DIY: Valentine Heart Crayons

Whether it’s for your child or your lover that is a child at heart, you can make these cute heart crayons right at home and rather easy if you ask me!

What You Will Need:

– Any sized pot with an inch of water

– Old crayons (unwrapped and preferably in Valentine colors )

– Empty tin

– Heart shaped candy mold

– Knife

– Pliers (preferably needle-nosed)

– Pot Holder

– A Valentine baggie or anything Valentine themed to put your crayons into

1.  Set your pot with water onto the stove and turn it up to a medium boil. While you’re waiting for the pot to boil, use the knife to cut your unwrapped used crayons into small pieces (this will make it easier for melting).

2. Once your pot has come to a boil, put your crayon pieces into the tin. Now, while using your pliers to hold the tin, put the tin in the pot and hold it in the water (or as close as you can get to it) but keep it away from the bottom of the pan.

3. Once the crayons start melting swirl the tin around to mix it up a bit more to help them melt. Once your crayons have melted, use your pot holder to hold the tin and pour the melted crayons into the heart candy mold. Be careful not to over flow the mold.

4. Very carefully, put the mold in the freezer where it can lay flat and not spill out. Let it set for at least 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, pop your crayons out of the mold and put them into your Valentine baggies and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this small how-to and have lovely Valentine’s Day!

Last Minute Shopping Deal

If you’re looking for some last minute gift ideas or deals I have a few.

 

If you’re shopping for a lady, I recommend hurrying over to your local CVS as they currently have 75% off on a lot of makeup products…and they’re all new. They’re not the usual returned items that were half used that they wanted to get rid of. They also have a lot of makeup items with 50% off as well but you can get plenty of makeup for someone from the 75% off products. I’ve already gone and bought them out of my favorite foundation.

 

If you’re looking for gifts for the kids, hurry over to Walgreen’s. They’re having a sale on a lot of toys like Hot Wheels cars for .59 cents and  candy 3/ .75 cents. I don’t know how long the sale on candy will be. It may be gone now. But also for the men, they have some As-Seen On TV items for rather cheap.

 

So if you’re a last minute shopper, head on over to your local pharmacy for some good deals.

99% Off? Say What?!? Cyber Monday Deals

It’s been a while since an update. The recent holidays have been a bit hectic.

If you’re like me you do not look forward to Black Friday. Well, Black Friday is over and it’s time for Cyber Monday (the internet’s version of Black Friday) and I have some great deals for you all.

My friend showed me a link last night that we all thought was a mistake and I’m still sure it is but we’re going to take advantage of it. It’s 99% off an originally priced $600 Oster Deluxe Power Bather. My friend that showed this to me bought one for the dog salon she owns. I bought 3 to sell later on eBay. I’m hopeful that the order will clear through but we’ll see how this goes.

Also, on Buy.com I found a what I thought was another good deal but I don’t think it’s a legit deal. I really they just put the original price as $99 to let people think they’re getting a good deal but I got a few just in case. It’s 80% off a Gunmetal Ruby Red  Crystal Necklace. Originally priced at $99 but you can get it for $19 plus shipping. Whether or not it’s a deal I really like the necklace.

I almost forgot to mention free panties! Yes, a free pair of Victoria’s Secret panties with THIS coupon. But it’s only good on 11/30.

White Coke

I walked into my local Walmart today and noticed in the front a stack of awesome looking white Coke cans. I looked closer and they had little polar bears on it…I immediately had the buy some because they were so pretty but then I finally notice the sign next to it. Coca-cola are for the first time in their 125 year history turning their red cans white for this special event. These cans are being turned white to promote the Arctic Home and their awareness and funds to better the environment for the polar bears.

Besides being one of the most gorgeous pieces of advertisement I had ever seen, I bought a few more sets than I had planned just because of the cause. I would recommend buying a set for yourself. Not only are they cute, they’re perfect for the holiday season. Enjoy.

Bare Escentuals Freebie

This will be my first makeup freebie for this blog and I’m excited. I love Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals’ products and I’m definitely not getting paid to say it. I use Bare Minerals’ foundation almost every single day and I can’t get enough of it. It’s the lightest foundation I’ve found and it’s better for your skin than any pressed foundation. I was lucky enough to stumble on a link to a free Bare Minerals coupon and I felt I should share the love.

Click HERE for the FREE coupon.

It is just a 10 day sample and a little kabuki brush but I think you’ll love it the first time you put it on. Their products are really not that expensive and you get a lot of product.  I highly recommend printing this out for yourself and maybe giving a few to friends and family. There is no expiration date but it is only until supplies last. BUT, it states on the bottom that if they’re out they’ll let you pick out something else as your free sample.

Here’s to a great start on the holiday season!

Well before getting to the Halloween freebies I would like to mention that I got to experience probably the first time that the Halo: Reach servers have been down since it start. The official Halo: Reach Facebook page stated this morning that they’re ” currently undergoing routine maintenance”.  A first on the record?
