From Long Sleeved to No Sleeves

If you are like me, you have problems with long sleeved shirts from pajama sets and the winter season clogging up your drawers. Well don't worry, because I have a solution. Just take a long sleeved shirt and immediatly you'll have a chic summer top.

If you're worrying about wearing a bra under this thin shirt, you can do what I did and use stick ons, which I got from Target for sixteen dollars (Reusable for up to three times) .

Just pull the head opening (Which would work better with shirts with wider openings) over your arms, so it's around your upper body so the long sleeves hang down to the sides. Then follow the folling instructions to make the styles pictured.

Style One: Twisted Halter
Pull the sleeves tight to the middle of your body, and then twist then. Then pull around the neck and tie it on the back of your neck.
Style Two: Under Knot
Pull the sleeves right under your chest and make a knot, letting the end of the sleeves hang down.
Style Three: Criss Cross Halter
Pull the sleeves tight to the opposite shoulder and tie around the back of your neck. Tuck excess folds of fabric under the criss crossed sleeves.
Style Four: Tube Top
Pull the sleeves tight around your back and tie in a knot, giving a smooth front appearance.
Style Five: Casual Low Tie
Pull the sleeves semi tight to the front and tie in a knot, let the rest of the sleeves hang down.

New Post Tonight!

I have to go to an open house for school, so when I get back, I'll finish up this awesome post I'm working on.
It had five pictures, and it's something totally easy and inexpensive (Maybe even free) that you can do.
Stay tuned darlings,

How To Travel In Style

Traveling. Moving from one location to the other by extensive transportation. Whether you are driving the whole way, or riding shot gun, here are a few things you shouldn't forget.

Music can make the whole car ride fun, and keep you awake in the night hours. Bring your favorites, but try to keep it light and upbeat, that way your attitude stays bright.

These should always be easy to eat. Like a granola bar, candy bar, fruit snacks, etc. Maybe an apple? That way you can focus mainly on driving.

No alcohol, of course! Bring a couple cans of soda, but be sure to bring a couple bottles of water, so you don't get dehydrated.

Make sure your cell phone, pager, PDA, etc., are fully charged and on, so if anything happens, you can contact someone.

Wear comfortable clothes while traveling that allow you to move freely and are weather appropriate. Also, bring a change of clothes in case something happens.

Bring along a makeup touch up kit with you, so you can fix your makeup where ever you are.

The Natural Exfoliate

Did you know that rubbing sand against your skin exfoliates it?

Well it's true!

So the next time you're at the beach, take some time to massage some sand over your skin (Not too hard), and before you know it, you'll have soft and tan skin!
