Last week's round up (a day late but better than never!)

via Deliciously Organized

First off, isn't this a great picture? It comes from Deliciously Organized who last week shared with us her recipes (is that the right word?) for homemade body scrubs.  Here they are:

SALT SCRUB:

1/2 cup of organic sea salt
1/3 cup of organic raw sugar or 1/3 cup of organic cane sugar {tip: cane sugar is softer than the raw}
1/2 cup of room temperature coconut oil {best when it has a liquid consistency}
30 drops of essential oil 

OR

SUGAR SCRUB:

1/2 cup of organic raw sugar or 1/2 cup of organic cane sugar {tip: cane sugar is softer than the raw}
1/3 cup of organic sea salt
1/2 cup of coconut oil {best when it has a liquid consistency}
30 drops of essential oil 

Add ingredients in order listed above, topping it off with coconut oil {add more coconut oil if you like it less dry}. Then, add essential oil and stir with a butter knife.

I definitely intend on trying at least one of these out.  I'll let you know how it goes.
Next up is Decor is like Butter's post where she showed us how the latest Oscar de La Renta catwalk looks have inspired her ideas for the interior of her new pad (best of luck with the move Anastacia !).  I think this is really creative - great post!  see the rest of the photos here.

And finally from my picks of last week's posts comes So Haute's feature on Amber Lewis' LA home.  I was particularly inspired by her blown up sky photos as shown in below.  Apparently, Amber snapped the photos from the car while on a drive with her hubby and then put the enlarged prints in Ikea frames.  To see the rest of Amber's home tour (well worth the visit) click here.
