Friday Faves – DIY Kombucha, Spring outfit & All natural body lotion

Hey there! O0o0o0o0o… It’s

This was a weird week… I was all messed up all week thinking it was Thursday when it was Tuesday and then the rest of my week was off! Anyway, I am glad it’s FriYAY!

The first thing I want to share with you guys that I am absolutely loving this week is my homemade Kombuchas. 


I was given a crash course from my friend Collin, who was given the SAME course from my girl Morgan Shupe (a chef!) and it’s been so much fun!!! My fave Kombucha comes from Nineteen-02 , but it’s still been a ton of fun trying different flavour combos on my own! Maybe one day I’ll do a full ‘how to’ post… I just don’t feel like I have the credibility yet. haha I mean… they taste good, but they’re far from perfect.

But I’ve got a good little set up here and it works for us! For the record… the culture inside that creates the kombucha is usually called the ‘mother’. But because I got it from my friend Collin (he split his up so I could have one!) so I call it the ‘daughter’ – and her name is Wally πŸ™‚

Moving on.

Spring outfitttttttt!!!!!

Dress (similar) (similar) / Frye boots
*Note: I bought the boots used and they’re AMAZING! These boots last forever if taken care of so I was happy to find this pair for under $200 in nearly mint condition (and receive them as a Christmas gift from my mum-in-law!)
Both the hats I bought (Gray from Roots and Beige from Forever 21) are sold out. I found a similar one here, and a cute more summery option here .

The last thing I want to share with you guys is a wonderful all natural and cruelty free lotion I have been using.


Andalou Naturals has rocked my world. This body butter is amazing. 
If you’ve read some of my other posts you know I’ve been trying to switch all of my products (cleaning, beauty care etc) to all natural and cruelty free. Cruelty free goes without saying (Because I love my furry babes too much to have make up tested on their relatives), and all natural just makes sense. When you’re lathering something all over your body… do you really want it to be filled with toxins that you’re going to absorb? 

Anyway, that’s a post for another day… but if you’re looking for a good natural/cruelty free product.. these guys have a WHOLE line and it’s amazing. It’s also not super pricey which is really nice.

That’s it for this week, friends!

Happy weekend!
