There is an unexpected perk to 1: having problematic skin and 2: being a self employed penny pincher. I’ve learned to take care of my skin without spending a lot of money.
One of the easiest ways to have soft, glowing skin is to get a facial, yet unfortunately it’s also one of the more expensive things out there to do. Never fear, with some household items, products under $10, and about 30 minutes to kill, you can get the dewy skin and save your money for bikinis.
Alas, I present to you, the DIY at home facial I’ve perfected over the years.
*This is geared towards combination skin that’s out in the sun.
I stumbled on this brilliant DIY jewelry idea…but totally failed with flying, illegible colors. Instead of giving up, I decided to simplify, and ended up making a bunch of cute little initial wish necklaces. (Wish = I didn’t have a chain so I used embroidery floss, meaning this necklace might break off someday…granting me my wish of a free trip to Tahiti)
So here you go. Try it out.
Scallops. They are great seared and slathered in butter, and even better when it’s the word to describe the trim on any article of clothing. Especially Bikinis. I’ve seen a few rather delectable scallops pop up in bikinis by Roxy, Marysia, Beach riot/Stone Cold Fox, and I am definitely on the band wagon.
But before I fork over some dough, I figured let’s mimic this style on a pair of bottoms I love, but were too darn big. Here’s how it all went down.
Ahhh summer. ‘Tis the season for cutoffs, especially of the DIY variety. I honestly make 90% of my jean shorts because 1: it puts an old unloved pair of jeans to good use, 2: you can have some fun customizing them, 3: I saves you some money, and 4: they tend to fit better.
So here is a pair of shorts that combine a few of my favorite things: tie dye, ombre, and neon.
Here we go…
