    Using the GBFU Body Polish

    1. Use a utensil to scoop out your polish (help keep it clean) remember, a little goes a long way.  
    2. Gently exfoliate the areas of the skin that are dry using circular motions.
    3. Rinse it clean and gently pat dry.
    4. Massage remaining oil into skin remember a little goes a long way and can be massaged onto the entire arm!

    1. 3 Beginner Friendly Houseplants!

      3 Beginner Friendly Houseplants!
      Can we talk about Houseplants for a minute? I mean they are totally on trend right now!  I've put together this really short list of 3 houseplants every beginner should add to their collection.
      pathos plant
      Pothos is easy to care for and easily found in any garden center, nursery, heck even grocery stores.  Pictured above is a marble queen pothos in our Bowl Macrame Hanger 😉
      zz raven
      I've been a fan of zz plants for so long!! This plant is hard to kill, well unless you overwater it 😬 then it will die a slow terrible death 💀 
      pictured is the zz raven in our Planter Basket 
      Chinese evergreen
      Chinese Evergreens are hands down one of the easiest houseplants you can add to your collection.  They tolerate a variety of light conditions and temps.  Just like the zz plant it won't tolerate overwatering so it's best to allow it to dry completely before watering.  Pictured is a Chinese Evergreen "chocolate" along side it is our Sweet Amethst soy candle 🕯

      Keep it shinning! 

      Soooooo You have gotten yourself some awesome brass jewelry because for one you are an adult and if you wanted you could even eat cookies for dinner.  And for two the products look awesome but…..for how long?

      Here are some tips and care tips to keep you both brassy and happy because we love for you to get your money’s worth. I mean you spent them coins let’s “make it last foreverrrrrrr” 🎶

      “How am I ‘posed to take care of this brass lawd!?”

      How to store your jewelry 

      • Sounds like coffee but store in a cool dry place. This should keep the need for maintenance and shining down to a minimum. 
      • If you stay in a plant haven like myself and have a completely humid living space try using ziplock bags and a cloth to keep moisture out that should help. 
      • If you take off your jewelry before a shower or bath remember to remove them from that humid space or you will come back to polishing and cleaning needed to be done. 

       

      Let's put this subject to bed with cleaning tips

      • Warm water , dish soap , and a toothbrush (soft bristles ) with this combo you have the basic setup of an easy clean job for your brass jewelry. As long as you didn’t let it get too dirty this should be as far as you need to go. Brush until clean and make sure you rinse all soap residue away and you will be back to new. A little elbow grease to polish and back to new just use a soft microfiber cloth and you will have a great shine back to your brass.
      • For heavier jobs you will need the BIG stuff! I’m taking baking soda and lemon juice big stuff. You will have to scrub until your jewelry is clean and then make sure you rinse throughly. I would recommend rinsing multiple times. After that as we say in the south same ole same. Soft microfiber cloth and buff and buff some more until you get your desired shine.
