How was your week? It’s been kind of a beast of a week here, so here are some fun links.

Have you somehow amassed a lot of essential oils? We both have. Here’s a recipe for making your own perfume with them (and some vodka).

I (Mary Kate) am a huge fan of the UfYH “method” or philosophy of trying to keep up with the messes in your life, and this week’s column in Persephone magazine is great: 5 Things to Clean When You Only Have 5 Minutes. You can really do a lot in 5 minutes.
