The first step is to cut your jeans to your desired length. Once that is complete, cut slits to give it more flavor and sass (lol I'm acting like I'm cooking but you get the point).

- A pair of high waisted "mom" jeans from your local thrift stores or jeans you already have on hand.
- Tie Dye Kit. I purchased this from Joann's, it was on sale and I usually always have coupons.
- Ruler for measuring the length of your shorts
- Scissors, pen for marking, and optional seam ripper.
The first step is to cut your jeans to your preferred length. This is where the ruler comes in so you make sure each side is even. After I cut my shorts, I cut slits in to my jeans and run the seam ripper (scissors or knife will do, be careful) along the edges.
The next step is to prepare your dye. Follow the instructions according to your kit. Mine said to fill the bottles according to the line. (I actually filled it a little less because I wanted the color more concentrated)
Start putting the dye on your jeans any way you would like but just do it gradually so the colors won't bleed badly. I liked mine overlapping a little bit because it helped create transition colors.
My kit said to let them sit for at least 6-8 hours but I'm not that patient. LOL. I let mine sit between 3-4 hours and they are just fine.
Once your jeans are "dyed" up, put them in the washer and dryer alone. I washed mine on warm and dried as normal.
Here is the final product!!!!!! LOVE!

I already have an infatuation with any thing black and white so this polish is basically calling my name. I used to not like the look of "white out" on nails but I've grown to love it (I thought white polish looked like White Out at some point LOL) It's so crisp and clean and matches every outfit you wear. White polish still manages to stand out and bring a classic style to any look. Add glitter, rhinestones, and different designs to cater towards your style or leave it alone for a simplistic touch.
Get ready for spring and summer with this timeless nail look!

Will you be doing this for spring and summer?

As many of you know, Gel Nails aka "Shellac" are super popular and in almost every salon you go to. For those who are regulars with getting their hands and feet done, you know that it can get pretty expensive. Sometimes I would spend close to $100 if I wanted a Mani/Pedi and Gel for both! I came across this Sensationail Gel Starter Kit at Walgreens for $40 on Sale and I decided I should give it a try.
I watched a few YouTube reviews and tutorials and it seemed pretty easy... It definitely was!! I love giving myself at-home mani/pedis and this just takes it to another level! I've had the 'Pink Chiffon' polish on my toes for two weeks now and it still looks NEW! The kit ranges from $40-70 depending on where you purchase it; I've seen this kit and different colors at Walmart, Target and online. AND each nail polish contains 10 applications! They also have removal kits which is convenient, too. I recommend this 100%!

Not sure if many of you know, but I have a deep love for thrifting. I started a few years ago on a vacation in North Carolina and have been thrifting ever since. Now don't get me wrong, my first couple of trips I would only find 1-2 items which was kind of frustrating and a little discouraging but I kept going. I don't know if it was the prices or quality of clothes I would find but each trip I would find more and more. It's definitely a passion now and I can do it by myself all day long. Finding stylish and trendy pieces for a ¼ of the price and most of the time even less than that is such a thrill for me. I love all of the pieces I purchased but the overalls are my favorite! They're coming back in style but I refuse to pay a lot of money for them. Takes me back to elementary and middle school days. Enough rambling, here are pictures of my latest items! Love! (These are pics before I've washed and dried them. Sorry for the wrinkles =P)
