DIY Urban Outfitters Inspired Denim Vest

What is better than cheap clothes?  Cheap CUTE clothes! 

I have always played with the idea of making my own fashion.  Other than the super daunting “I have no idea how to even start” phase, it is almost a bit of a rush to wear something you made.  I would live for the day someone asked me where I got this vest and I could say “Bitch I made it.”  (Only a maybe less dramatic and rude.)

It is so cool to me to see how you can still get the stuff you see in stores for a fraction of the price if you are willing to put in a little bit of work.  This is perfect for a person who is just starting to learn how to sew.  Simple, quick, good looking and cheap.  Just like my men 😉

People are Going All Out with their Easter Eggs!

Easter is right around the corner, and I am seeing bunnies and baby chicks all over my pinterest. What caught my eye though, is all of the creative ways people have come up with for decorating their eggs! Growing up we would dye our eggs in the typical fashion, but we never got this fancy with it. One year we tried drawing white crayon over the shells before dyeing them to try and get a design to appear, but they came out terrible. It just looked blotchy. Whatever these people are doing though, they are doing it right! Here are a few that are my favorite so far:

People are getting creative with using different medias to get a pattern on the shells.  I would have never thought to use a paper napkin or a tie.

I love the marble look you can get by dying shaving cream, swirling it around, and dipping the egg in but you cant beat the colorful layers of the middle one.  This person used hot glue and multiple dips into the dye to give it the swirl look.  And the gold leaf at the end!
