How to keep your car smelling fresh

I don't know if I am the only one in the world but I hate those tree thingy in my rear view. But, I love getting in my truck when it is smelling like that new leather or new car scent. As browsing the internet, I found a few different ways to freshen up your cars without the ugly trees. I just had to share the tips with you...

1. Bath Salts.... sew or purchase a sachet and fill it with your favorite scent. Then place the sachet under the passenger seat.

2. Wax Tarts... You can find them at Walmart or even specialty stores such as Yankee Candle. Pfullace the tart in your cup holder. Be mindful of the area you leave in...the wax may melt in the summer.

3. Tissue paper and fresh herbs... Place the fresh herbs in the tissue paper and place under the seats. As the herbs dry the more you will smell.

4. Essential oils. You can either shake a few drops on your car mats or shake some drops on those old tree fresheners and place under the seat.

If these work for you, let me know.

Summer updates

Hi All,

I wanted to keep you all posted on whats going on this summer and will be taking a brief break (if you couldn't tell). I am back in school and the kids being out of school kept me away from the computer. I will be posting here and there but there will be a decrease in what I will be posting. I have a few eye wear pictorials that I have been working on. I will be posting them. I will keep you posted on my CurlKits Unboxing (10% off coupon code:VIC). I may not be doing too many hair reviews because I will be keeping my hair braided for the season.  I hope you are enjoying your summer thus far and I will talk to you soon.
