We Made Our Own Deodorant & Other Notes From 5 Days Of DIY-ing

See more about this Episode
DIY offers an alternative to our typical consumer culture, in which we rely on other people to fulfill our needs. It allows us to get scrappy, take things into our own hands, and perhaps even save a little bit of money along the way.

This week, I took on five DIY projects in different areas of my life, from planting an indoor herb garden to making infused olive oils. And I picked up a few new skills along the way. I even visited Lauren Singer (@TrashIsForTossers) and learned to make zero-waste toothpaste and deodorant.
A huge shout-out to Pass the Pistil, BASH Studio, and Luci's Morsels for the inspiration. What are your favorite DIY projects? DM me on Instagram (@LucieBFink) to share your ideas!

About Try Living with Lucie

Refinery29's Lifestyle Host, Lucie Fink, dives headfirst into social experiments, 5 days at a time. Manhattan's very own Millennial survivor-woman is willing to try it all and see what she learns along the way -- testing her mental and physical strengths. New to the city, she is asked to shut off her cell phone for the following work week and then spend a limited $50 the next. Do you know how much the subway costs now-a-days? It's time to watch and learn with Lucie.
