Face Tip Friday Post #2


Oh the many uses of this cheap, wonderful product.

  1. It makes eyelashes grow!! Lather it up on your eyelashes overnight and they will thicken. It's wonderful <3
  2. Fixes dry cuticles.
  3. Helps your scent last. If you use perfume, apply Vaseline on those spots and your scent will stick around longer.
  4. VASELINE DOESN'T CLOG PORES!!! Use it on your face to make it reallysoft.
  5. Make up remover. Put it on a Q-Tip and it will remove make up.
  6. It eases eyebrow plucking.
  7. Removes make up stains on clothes.

There you are. Seven great tips for everyday use. (Well...almost.) I hope you find this handy!

Summer Abs!!

We all want them! Just do this everyday. And you'll get the beach body (;

DIY Yoga Socks (No Knit/Crochet)

It's been a while...but I have another post for you! I'm going to tell/show you how to make yoga socks from a sweater! I made these for my mom. I told her I would knit some for her...last Christmas. That failed, so I decided to take a shortcut :P

Anyways, all you need is something soft, a t-shirt, a sweater, whatever you've got. You can even use a different pair of socks to make them! (If you use a shirt, make sure it can stretch a little!)

After you find your warm and fuzzy thing, get a sock that belongs to the person you're making these for (yourself, right?).

I flattened the sock so the heel was facing down and laid it on the shirt.
 As you can see, I already used part of this shirt...that was my first I pushed the sock up as far as it could go so the leg part of the sock would be longer!

Then you just cut around the sock and leave a little room, if possible. Then flip it, so it's inside out, and sew it up! You're more than halfway done!!!

Now you want to put it on, and move it where you want it to be on your foot. Then you trace where you want to cut out the heel, take off the sock and cut! (I cut my heel-spot a bit too be careful!)

Then, repeat with the other sock!

They don't look too hot when they're just lying on the put them on already! ;)

 Mine  My mom's, reach pretty far up my leg,when I tried them on for this picture. I'm pretty satisfied. You can hem the openings if you care to, put i like how mine my mom's look.

I even put a cute label on them and tied them up in a bow. I love Christmas. And presents.

Sorry about the blurry picture...

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Now go on, make some YOGA SOCKS! <3

P.S. I plan to make my own soon. (:


Any questions?

Okay, this is a life saver. If you dab some honey on a zit or pimple before you go to bed, and then rinse it off the following morning, your pimple is nearly gone! (Or least hardly noticeable.)

Now, this worked for me, so there's no guarantee that it will work for you.

I thought you guys would like that. (If you have a suggestion or a request as to what I should make a post about, let me know!)

DIY Colored Skinny Jeans (No Bleach)

No Bleach!!Colored Skinny Jeans

This is great because all you need here is a pair of jeans and a packet of dye. I bought some Rit dye at Joann's for $2.29! It's cheap stuff, but it works great. 

So if you didn't want to do the whole bleaching thing, this definitely has a cool effect. All I did was follow the instructions that were on the box.

As long as the jeans are somewhat light, this will work great and give your jeans a cool look.

Also, keep in mind that blue and red make purple. So if you want red pants, you will have to bleach them first. :P I got purple pants now(:

Face Tip Friday Post #1

(I know this isn't a refashion for the runway...but you want a clear face while on the runway. Right? I'll post a Face tip every Friday! Make up tips will be included.)

Nutmeg & Honey Facial

This recipe is known to clear skin. It is to be used twice a week. Results will be noticed within a few weeks of use.


2 Tablespoons of honey
2 Tablespoons of nutmeg
2 TEASPOONS of milk


Mix them all together and put on your face - avoiding eyes. It tastes pretty good so don't worry about putting it too close to your mouth ;)
Leave on for 10-15 minutes, or longer if you really want - just be careful. Then rinse off and repeat later in the week. Only twice a week to prevent any issues. This isn't a sticky mask like you'd expect.

This face mask is soothing and your face will feel great afterwards. I totally recommend this mask! I saw results after just the first use.

I had extra left over after I had put it on so I put it in a Tupperware and slapped on a lid. I will use it when I do the mask for the second time of the week. If you don't want to save it, just halve the recipe.

Okay, so try it out and let me know if it worked for you. Leave a comment. I love reading them! <3

DIY Colored Skinny Jeans:)

Make your own colored skinny jeans!

Materials needed:

- Bleach (optional)
- Jeans (or other pants)
- Dye (I used Rit, powder dye)
- A five gallon bucket (or a washing machine)
- Three gallons of water

Let's get started!

I bought a pair of jeans that fit me well at our local Salvation Army. They were on sale for $1.50!! :D Then I went to Joann's and used a gift card I had and bought a box of Rit powder dye for $2.29! Then I went to the dollar store and purchased a gallon of 'Awesome' bleach. It was one dollar. (I also bought two other colors of dye, but I am just focusing on this one right now.) These one's are going to be teal(:


 So, this whole thing will cost me less than $5!!! These jeans are usually no less than $20 so this is quite the deal. And if I screw them up or they don't turn out right, I won't freak out too much. Alright, read further on to find the instructions and more pictures! (:

NOTE: Let me tell you that yes, this is cheap, but it's time consuming and takes some experimentation. It's worth it though.

I took a five gallon bucket, since my mom wouldn't let me use her washing machine, and filled the thing up with 3 gallons of luke warm water. Then I added three cups of bleach. Then I soaked my jeans with warm water in the sink, and then put them in the bucket. DO THIS! (It may be important!) I stirred them around for a bit and waited. 
WARNING: Don't do this with jeans that have holes in the knees or any other part - the bleach will eat at the holes and ruin the pants further. Don't do this on an expensive pair of jeans - as it may not turn out how you want or they could get ruined.

I went in every half hour or so and stirred them around so the bleach hit every spot. After the first hour or so the part of the jeans that was on the bottom seemed lighter in color than the part that was facing up, so I flipped it over...and splashed myself with bleach water in the process -.-
Anyways, you're in for a long wait, so sit back and check out my other stuff!

They're getting there. A few more hours should do it. I'll have to wait to dye them until tomorrow. I was looking forward to finishing these today...but as long as they're done in time for school, less than two weeks away, I'll be alright!

Mhmm, as I predicted the pants weren't turning lighter as equally as I want them to. Sigh. So I pulled them out and ran them under warm/hot water in the sink for a minute. Then I plopped them back in the bucket - careful not to spill any on myself.

NOTE: I recommend wearing gloves...or just thoroughly washing your hands if you touch the bleach. My hands are all dry and nasty feeling. I will put on Vaseline.

They were looking a little yellow so I pulled them out and rinsed them again. Then I added another cup of bleach. Yeah, I was getting impatient.

Yeah, I warned you. It takes a while. They are definitely lighter...but they looked yellow and inconsistent. So I threw them in the sink...again and rinsed them out (see picture below).

See, not too pretty. So I through them in the washing machine on just the rinse cycle too see what that would do. I added one cup of bleach to the wash instead of laundry soap.

Not sure if it did much of anything...I don't think it was worth it. But, my bleach water was looking super yellow. So I dumped it and refilled it with roughly 3 gallons of water and 3 cups of bleach. Now we wait even more.

The picture above was taken after 24 hours of bleaching (total) accounting for the time they were in the washing machine. I added some warm water here.

29 hours total was still not enough :/ What!? I dumped out some of the water that was in the bucket and added half a cup of bleach. Yep. They're looking pretty yellow still and I'm wondering if it's because of my dollar store bleach. So, I sat back and watch Grey's Anatomy.

After 31 hours, I was done. They weren't white white, but they were pretty light (yellowish). I was okay with that. So, I went to bed and woke up the following morning read to dye them.
I followed the directions on the box and plopped them in a bucket. I stirred them for 15 - 20 minutes and they were dark and teal and perfect. I rinsed them like the directions said to and tossed them in the washing machine - gently of course. After the wash if yours aren't dark enough, throw them back in the dye for a while longer. I did. It darkened them a bit.

When they were done I put them in the drying machine. Easy stuff.

Here's my end result:

Aren't they adorable!?!? (The color isn't showing up too well in the picture, but I love them.)
Buying these jeans from Pacsun costs: $49.50
Total saved: $44.00 (more or less)

(Do you like all the pictures and details....or should I just get through the directions faster next time?)
