Fashion DIY: Hawt Summer shoes

First up: Summer T-shirt Sandals

Summer Sandals Tutorial

Summer Sandals Tutorial 1

For this project you're need:
- flip flops (preferably used)
- scissors
- piece of chalk or marker 
- craft knife
- heavy duty waterproof glue
- recycled t-shirts
- screw driver
- flat butter knife or thin plastic ruler to stuff fabric into the soles. (Not shown)
- clamps (or heavy books)

Grab your stuff and head over to annekata for the full tutorial!

"Tyler," you may say, "I'm sorry but that looks like waay too much work. And I didn't happen to have any waterproof glue or clamps hanging around, sorry."

Ok, ok. It's alright dear reader. For the lazy (ahem sorry, "time conservative") of those among us I've provided a quicker solution:

Tackalicious shoes

drawing pin tack heels

For this DIY creation all you need is a couple of boxes of thumbtacks and a pair of cheap wedges from Walmart or Payless. Before you know it, you've paid only about $25 (maybe less) and have created a $150 pair of shoes eerily similar to "The Tick" by Jeffrey Campbell on Karmaloop.

Stick to it 'till the weekend and enjoy your Thursday, all!

Wednesday Laugh: A Store for Husbands

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City, where any woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates. You may visit the store ONLY ONCE!!! You may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the Building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband?

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking.. "Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework. "Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Ladies, what would your Floor 6 sign say? What about you, gentleman? What would it say for your Floor 6 ladies?
I think my Floor 6 sign would say "These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak, are creativity, spontaneous, interact well socially, and have a great sense of humor"!

What You Didn't Know About YOU

This is a little psychoanalysis test that one of my friend posted on Facebook (very reliable, I know. lol). I thought it was pretty interesting so I wanted to share it with you. I found some of the answers to by quite questionable, but most people who took it thought the results sounded very accurate. So grab a piece of paper and write down the VERY FIRST answer that comes to mind when you see the questions. Try to be specific. No peeking! Scroll down to the answers when you're done.

Answer the following questions with the first thought that comes to mind.
1. You are not alone. You are walking in the woods. With who?
2. You are walking in the woods. You see an animal. What kind of animal is it?
3. What interaction takes place between you and the animal?
4. You walk deeper in the woods. You enter a clearing and before you is your dream house, how big is it?
5. Is your dream house surrounded by a fence?
6. You enter the house. You walk in to the dining room and see a table. What’s on AND around it?
7. You exit the house and a cup is on the ground, what kind is it?
8. What do you do with the cup?
9. You walk to the edge of the property where you find yourself standing at river, how big is it?
10. How will you cross the water?

1. The person who you are walking in the woods with is the most important person in your life.
2. The size of the animal is representative of your perception of the size of the problems in your life.
3. The severity of the interaction you have with the animal is representative of how you deal with your problems.
4. The size of your dream home is representative of the size of your ambition to solve your problems.
5. A lack of a fence is indicative of an open personality. People are welcome atall times. The presence of a fence indicates a closed personality. You’d prefer people not drop by unannounced.
6. If your answer did NOT include food, flowers, or people, then you are generally unhappy.
7. The durability of the material with the cup is made of is representative of the perceived durability of your relationship.
8. Your disposition of the cup is representative of your attitude.
9. The size of the body of water is representative of the size of your sexual desire.
10. How wet you get in crossing the water is indicative of the relative importance of your sex life.

So what did you think of your answers? Bet you wished you listened to me when I said be specific, huh? lol. If you're curious (I'm sure you are) Here were my answers:

1. Vivin [my boyfriend]
2. dog
3. pet it
4. mini mansion
5. no
6. a floral centerpiece and several chairs
7. styrofoam
8. throw it away
9. farly small
10. jump

Interesting isn't it? Eh, I don't take it seriously. It was fun though :P Have a great week everyone! :)

"WHY ME?!" Embarassing Teen Stories

"One day we were talking to a cute guy, and I had a lollipop in one hand and his iPod earphone in the other. Not looking or thinking, I put what I thought was the sucker in my mouth. He looked at me and said, ‘You just put my earphone in your mouth.’ After that, I never asked to listen to his iPod again."

"We were at the playground, and my little cousin was in a baby swing, so I went and sat in one too. I crammed my legs into the seat—and I got stuck. The only way to get out was to take off my jeans! I slid out of them and onto the ground while everyone watched. I realized there were security cameras taping the whole thing!"

"I had to go to the school nurse to give a urine sample. The nurse gave me a cup, and I went into the bathroom, but as I stood up, the cup was too full and I knocked it onto my book bag! The pee got all over my books. I tried to wipe off as much as I could, but when I took my seat in class, my crush told me I smelled like pee!"

"A cute guy in my class came over one night to study, and as we were doing research online, he clicked on a pic on my computer—it was a one of him from his MySpace page! I had e-mailed it to my friend earlier and forgotten to delete it. He looked at me and said, 'Um, are you stalking me or something?' I was so humiliated!"

"My cousin and I were having fun, dancing around the living room. We were doing the moves to 'Pop, Lock & Drop It' and as I went down to 'drop it,' my pants split right down the middle - just as my entire family walking into the room! Needless to say, I've definitely put my dance moves on hold for the time being."

"My boyfriend and his twin brother are on the lacrosse team, and I went to see them play. After the team won, I ran up to my BF and gave him a peck on the lips. He looked at me strangely for some reason—then I realized why! I'd gotten my boyfriend and his brother mixed up: I had just kissed his twin! I felt so bad!"

"I was at a glow-in-the-dark bowling party, so I wore a cute white v-neck. My crush was giving me all this attention and taking pictures of me. I went on Facebook later, where he had tagged photos of me. I realized my Powerpuff Girls bra glowed through my shirt! I de-tagged myself, but he won’t delete them!"

"I went over to my crush's and set my phone on the table while I went into the bathroom. When I came back, he looked sketched out. I didn't know why until I saw my phone sitting next to him with the screen was showing—it was a stalkarazzi-style picture of him! I felt like such a freak!"
