Before summer comes to an end, it’s time to plan for backyard BBQ’s and gatherings with friends, but cooking on a budget is often easier said than done.
Rose Petals + Epsom Salts = Most Relaxing Bath, Ever.
Epsom salt, named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.

Our editor, Megan, has been wanting to dye her hair red for quite a long time. As a matter of fact, she had pinned quite a few red hair images for inspiration for a while now.

The “Forever” Prize lets you leave a legacy for your loved ones. Win, and you’d get $5,000 a week for your life, then after that, you’d get to choose someone to receive $5,000 a week for their life! It’s unlike any other PCH prize — and it’s GUARANTEED to be awarded this August! What would I do if I won? That’s easy. I’d put most of it in a savings account for my daughter. She would have enough to be comfortable through college and a little to start her own life with by the time she needed it. Of course, I would spend a little on my husband as well. I can’t say that we have ever had a 100$ per plate steak dinner, but I can promise you; we would try it before I died. We might even try it a few times, just to make sure we liked it. I suppose there are some small luxuries that I would also consider. Maybe paying off my house sooner than later, getting a few teeth fixed and fixing the speaker in my car that’s been blown for 4 years. I’d repay back some debts to family members that were absolved, just because I finally could, and I’d pay it with interest, then I’d take off work. After all, with $5,000, my idea of work is sleeping in, enjoying some coffee (from my brand new luxury coffee maker) and enjoying time with my family. Maybe taking an afternoon bike ride (on my brand new luxury bicycle), and then taking a weekender, here and there. Maybe move a little closer to the beach…but not too close, after all, I’m not a big spender.

This is one of my favorite baking recipes. Blueberry bars filled with a tart and fruity filling, topped with buttery streusel topping. They make a nice sweet treat for breakfast or dessert. Or an anytime snack because they’re so good you’ll try to eat them every chance you get.
