Easy DIY Turmeric Face Mask

I've got a super easy DIY face mask for you guys today! DIY turmeric masks have been a major trend on social media and beauty sites lately, and with  good reason - they're so good for your skin! There are several reasons why Turmeric Face Masks can help you get your glow on. The curcumin in this brightly-colored spice has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thus the turmeric benefits for skin can include detoxifying, anti-aging, calming, and healing. In other words; it can help clear congestion, helps to heal blemishes and reduce scars, can boost collagen, and prevents damage from free radicals.

I've mixed turmeric with coconut oil for my DIY mask, but you can use other ingredients for different skin needs. For example, a dairy yogurt containing lactic acid can boost the anti-aging and skin brightening properties, while a honey turmeric mask would be best for fighting bacteria and blemishes. The coconut oil is a great ingredient for extra moisturizing.

An Elegant Tartan Thanksgiving Table Setting


If you're a regular reader here, you will have seen this beautiful bird a few times already. It's my Thanksgiving Day turkey from last year. Isn't it pretty? I went with a blue and red tartan table setting last year so I could work in my blue dish set and blue vase. It can be a challenge to mix in your everyday color scheme with holiday colors, but as you can see here, it can be done. All you need is one multicolored item to tie everything together. I used a tartan sheet in red and blue to tie in the unusual color combo, and it worked beautifully. I layered red chargers underneath the blue dishes, then layered red and white napkins over each place setting.

For the Thanksgiving centerpiece I used items I already had from my autumn decor, like the pumpkins and pine cones. I added in some red pillar candles I had on hand along with some pears I picked up at the store. If you have a table runner, or even a scarf or ribbon you can run down the middle of the table, you don't have to use any fancy containers or candle holders for your centerpiece. You can line everything up directly on top of the runner.
