Little House on the Prairie

  • Top from Old Navy
  • Grandma's brooch
  • Skirt from Clothes Mentor

Effortlessly chic vintage style goes casual when worn as country basics. This simple red and yellow color combo screams cottage in the country. This skirt is so comfy and breezy, I wish I could wear it everyday. I love how it is high-waisted so it's easily paired with this season's popular cropped tops. I wanted to add some traditional vintage to these simple basics, so I added a sunflower brooch that belonged to my grandmother. I've gotta say she left me some pretty wonderful jewelry, and everytime I look through her things I find something new and amazing.

Pop of health/fitness: I don't know about you guys, but when the temperature rise, I start to break out. I found some interesting at-home remedies for masks that are used to control acne breakouts.
Baking Soda Mask
Simply mix baking soda and water into a paste and apply to your face after you cleanse it. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. You can use this mask three times a week.

Egg Mask
Egg whites are great to tone and firm your skin. Egg yolks contain Vitamin A to help prevent scarring. Simply separate an egg and beat either the white or yolk and apply to your face. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. Don't use these masks if you're allergic to eggs.

Basil Tonic Mask
Take 3 teaspoons of fresh basil and steep it in boiling water until it cools. Apply to your face with a cotton ball. This mask helps to clear your skin and tone it.

Sea Salt Mask
If you don't live near the ocean you can still get its benefits with this simple mask. Mix sea salt and water into a paste. Apply to clean skin and let sit until it become hard and crusty. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Oatmeal and Honey Mask
Mix oatmeal, honey and water to make a thick paste. Apply to your skin after you have cleansed it and let it sit for 20 minutes. Use a damp warm cloth to soften the mask and then rinse with warm water. The oatmeal will draw out excess oil and honey has many healing and antibiotic properties. Use organic honey if possible.

Rosewater and Cucumber Mask
Mix rosewater and cucumber paste together and apply to your clean face. Let sit for 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

Garlic Mask
Peel and mash 8 cloves of garlic and apply to your face. Be sure to avoid the eye area and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and then tone your face with some vinegar on a cotton ball. Garlic has antibacterial properties and vinegar balances your skin's pH.

Groundnut Oil and Lime Mask
Mix 1 teaspoon of groundnut oil and 1 teaspoon of lime juice. Apply to your clean skin and let sit for a few minutes. Rinse with warm water. You can use this mask everyday to treat and prevent blackheads.

Apple and Honey Mask
Grate one apple and mix with honey. Apply to your skin and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Apples have pectin and vitamins that soothe and clarify your skin and honey has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Try these homemade acne masks to treat mild to moderate acne. Be sure to test the masks on the inside of your wrist to be sure you aren't allergic to any of the ingredients. Save money and use what you have in your kitchen to treat and prevent acne
