DIY Customized Shirts

In today's post i am going to run through a couple snazzy ideas on how to customize your shirts; you can use old baggy stretched out shirts or even a shirt that you picked up from K-mart for $3 a pop. In this Case i used option B.

Idea 1: Acrylic Paint
To make the first design i basically splatted paint on one side of the shirt and then folded it in half to create an inkblot test effect    

To make the second design i just decided i wanted to make a shirt with an evil pop tart on it so i painted it haha

Idea 2: Print your own iron on transfers

For This idea you just find an image you want on your shirt, print it shiny side down on iron on transfer paper using an inkjet printer (not a laser printer), Cut out the image as close to the edge as you can, Peel off Backing, Place where you want the design with the grease proof paper on top, Using an iron on high setting apply heat evenly over 30 secondsish and finally once it has slightly cooled gently peel off the grease proof paper to reveal your design

Thanks for reading hope you enjoyed this post

Whats New ... Major Changes In My Life so far

Hello my lovelies,

I finally got the courage to face you all after all the things that have recently happened to me that pretty much ran me through the dirt and then back again, firstly i was involved in a car accident that wrecked our car (i was not at fault) and then secondly long story short i lost my job under suspicious circumstances. 

I know what your thinking, "why do you need courage to tell us about this stuff?" well to be completely honest i have put it off because i was worried about disappointing everyone and also worried about what people would say to me about what happened. 

I have been really down and out over it and only recently started to feel better.  I got accepted into my Diploma in Children services studying in Brisbane city and get to strive closer to my dream of becoming a kindy teacher which i start next week and i have lost more weight and cm at gym so i have come to think that getting to study something i love and follow my dreams may just be the silver lining in all of this.


Bye for now xx

DIY Plugs

Recently i decided to have a go at making my own plugs for my stretched ears, my ears are 12mm so i used a ruler to measure the diameter to make sure they were the right size. This is what i did...

1. I went to my local dollar store and bought some polymer clay that you can bake in the oven

2. Work some of  the clay in your hands

3. Shape the clay into a sausage shape and break it into small pieces

4. Roll clay into plug like shapes and use the ruler to check the size ( note if it looks slightly too small, don't worry about it as they can expand in the oven only by 0.5-1mm but still i learned that the hard way as my first batch turned out too big )

5. Bake in the oven for 30mins at 130 degrees (c)(30mins for even 6mm of thickness)

And once they have finished in the oven and cooled down you now have your very own polymer clay plugs

Thanks for reading

Bye for now my lovelies

Vacate the roads i am now a Learner Driver ;)

I recently managed to pass the written component of Australia's driving test which means i am now allowed to drive on the roads which in reality is not as dangerous as it sounds haha.

In Australia you have to hold your leaner license for a year and gain 100 hours of driving experience in a multitude of different conditions (Night time, Daytime, rain or shine)

I am honestly not that bad at driving, i have driven for over 10 hours now and i am finding i am loving it. I am hoping to buy my first car soon and i will definitely show you all what i get

Bye for now
my lovelies

My Daily Skin Regime

1. It is really important to wash your face everyday twice if you can once in the morning to prepare your skin for the day and once in the evening to remove the dirt, make-up and grime of the day.

2. Then i Cleanse my face and exfoliate, i like to use Clinique liquid facial soap and i like to make my own exfoliant using a mix of coconut oil and bicarbonate soda and brown sugar.

3.  Toner, Toner, Toner i like to use Witch Hazel as my toner because my skin has a tendency to get red and flushed and the witch hazel helps to strengthen the capillaries in the skin thus reducing the redness

4. My skin also has a bad habit of drying out so i have to moisturise either by using an actual moisturiser or by using a foundation with moisturiser in it.

Well thats it my lovelies
