New On ABM!

Here's what I was up to last month on A Beautiful Mess!

I shared a fun and simple way to spice up a ponytail with the CrissCross Ponytail technique!

I shared my recipe for making your own Grapefruit Mint Poppyseed soap!  We have been using this stuff like crazy-- it smells so good!

Elsie and Emma released a new e-course called "Blog Life" and I got to help Elsie out with a little  bonus video.  It's included with the e-course when you purchase.

I don't know how April passed by so quickly, but I have a whole list of projects to tackle for this month.  I can't wait to share!  xo. Katie

  3. I've been doing this braid a lot during the work week to keep it out of my face & I love it! I normally don't put my hair up because I feel like it's boring, but this is so cute! Also, I've been wanting to make my own soap ever since I saw that recipe for it!

  4. Your video was very nice. I'm thinking I have to purchase that e-course before this month is over. It's affordable, and I'm ready to soak in new tips. Your ponytail... I'll have to try it this week. Yup!

  5. That soap! Soap making always seemed like such a complicated process to me but you make it look so easy and cool. I will add it to my list of things I need to try.

    Thank you for sharing :)

  7. Hi Katie! This is my first time commenting here, but I just love love LOVE your soap. I'm a blogger as well as a soapmaker (with my own soapmaking business) and I always wanted to find a silicone mould like the one you used in this ABM DIY. Do you know where I could get one? :)

    I really do love how the soap came out. :)

    1. Hi, Catarina! I got the mold from Amazon-- it's just a small loaf pan and works perfectly!
