So I have a two fer for you this week. First up is a makeup brush cleaner. Saying this was long overdue is an understatement. I tend to forget how important it is to clean your brushes. It prevents breakouts and bacteria so it really is a must do.

In one mug mix 1 cup of warm water with 1 TBSP of Vinegar and 1 TBSP of Dish soap, fill another mug with cold water. Rinse your makeup brush in the soapy water for about 10 seconds, rinse in the cold water then lay on towel to dry. Voila you are done!
Now for a little V-Day decoration. My inspiration:

Since this pin was just to an Etsy shop I had to wing it. What you will need:
4 different colored scrapbooking paper
Mod Podge, glue, or spray adhesive
Wooden letters (XO – Qty 2 each)
Optional – Felt hearts, tulle, flowers etc.
Cut Paper to size just a little larger than the letter. Paint front with Mod Podge and place the paper on top. Repeat for all letters and allow to dry.
Once dry (around 30 minutes) cut around the letters with an Exacto knife to cut off excess paper. Add any optional felt hearts, ribbon or tulle embellishments and you are done!
What do you think, worth doing it? I think I kinda like it.

I never ever clean my brushed- I know, terrible! I need to get on that!

Thanks Katie! I realized how little Valentine’s decorations I had in storage. Needed to get in the spirit!
I hateeee cleaning my make up brushes. It’s the worst!
LOL! I think that was why I didn’t before, but this one was super easy. Swirl, Swirl, rinse, dry. Easy peasy.
