How To Make Your House Smell Good On The Cheap

20 Jan


Hello there folks! I know that its been a while since my last post, but I feel like I have been very busy coming up with new ideas! Luckily I was able to make it to the liquor store for a 750 of the whiskey last night, and there will be no vodka scavenging or Christmas wine drinking. Sounds a little boring now.

 I am actually going to attempt to make a duct tape dress form today with my friends Sammy and Raquel. I have never had a dress form before, but I think that I am coming close to the point where I could really use one. The thing is, they’re expensive. I’m the kinda lady that can’t bring herself to spend a lot of money on an item until it has been proven that it will be used. I never want my tools to be nicer than my talent. Does that make sense? Either way, I will be attempting a dress form this afternoon, which will be immediately useful because I am struggling with this dress.


Kate gave it to me, super-duper cute right?


It’s been feasted on by moths, and it’s stained with what looks like rust. Like all dresses from Kate though, it’s vintage and it looks killer when it’s on, so I am trying to repair it somehow.

I have also been on an early spring cleaning and organizing binge this past week. I am composing a list for you about how to keep your house clean in 20 minutes a day or less. I have been struggling with organization for years but I think that I have finally blossomed into an organized little butterfly. I like to open the closet door and just look at it in awe now.

Here is my newest little trick to keep my house smelling good too. I have all these little tea candle places around my house. I love tea candles because they burn for the perfect amount of time before they put themselves out, but unless you splurge for the scented ones they smell like nothing.


Well folks, I just bought some of this cheap-o oil that is meant for fragrance oil warmers. I put a drop or two onto each tea candle before I light it and voila! Cheap smell-good candles!
