My dental hygenist resembled Perez Hilton

Another rainy day. Yay? I'm getting used to these days. I decided to dress bright to pretend that it was sunny and summery. Even though it wasn't. At all.

(Necklace - Forever 21 $12, Floral Dress - Thrifted $5, Purple Blouse - Value Village/ Vintage $6, Tights - H&M $6, Shoes - Aldo $10)


^ This necklace is so much fun! I love Forever 21 if not only for this piece.

For any body who actually reads what I write (you guys are the best!!), here are some of my DIY/ Sewing I've done the past two, rainy, dreary days that I promised to post..

The classic puffy skirt.. but with embellishments!


^ Details - the skirt looks really awkward on the hanger. And the pictures kind of suck. Whoops. But you get the idea!

DIY Shirts - Taken from plain, white Hanes Ts.

Shirt 1)

^ See the second black, lighter line? Not supposed to be there, but it's washable marker so it'll come off!

Shirt 2)

^Skeleton fun!

These shirts were so much fun to make! Definitely something worth a try. Um, except, you may want to actually follow the direction for the dye and wear gloves. Otherwise your hands change race. After thorough washing..

The song "Bruises" is running through my head whenever I look at them.. I'm permanently black and blue, I'm permanently black and blue for youuuuu. Moral of the story: wear gloves!


Once again, for any of my readers who actually read my monsterous and, admittedly, awkward posts (once again, you all rock!), I am going to Peru for 3 weeks! Therefore, there will be no updates until July 20th-ish. Anyways, I am doing volunteer work for Peru's Challenge - I'm really excited to be emerged in a new country with a totally different culture from mine. I will post pictures and updates when I get home! Leaving tomorrow - Happy Canada's Day all fellow Canadians!

Quite proud - everything for three weeks in a little suitcase! :)

Anyways, thank you SO much for coming. Please comment and I will definitely get back to you all as soon as I come back. Have a lovely summer (or at least a few weeks in July)! Sending sunny days and happiness your way with my super powers. Hopefully. :)

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good
blog!
