LIFE HAPPENS #22

Hey guys!

I'm going to be honest. I have done nothing this week. Zip. Nada. Zilch. The few things I did do only happened because I had to convince myself to get up and do something. I've already gotten into a summer funk and it's only, what? Two weeks? Three?, since summer has started. I can be such a lazy toad.

However, I did get a new wallet. I wanted one for when I go to Chicago since I don't have one that I use specifically for travel. I found mine from Ross for $9.99. It's from the brand Mundi and retails for $30. What a steal right? I really liked the different compartments and how I can have a pen tucked inside if I wanted to. I can't wait to use it!



I'm also about 1/3 done with cleaning my room. I have a pile of items that I have no idea where to put in my room. I'm thinking of putting some floating shelves on one side of my room so I have a place to put any books while also being able to hang some small purses from if I buy the wire ones.

While convincing myself to do something, I've been watching a lot of ThreadBanger and "What's in my carry on?" videos. I really like how far ThreadBanger has come. I remember how I subscribed to them when they had about 120,000 subscribers and how they used to make DIY videos and the like. Now they're gotten really popular through their Pinterest Test videos. Check out a few of my favorite videos they've made. Warning: Robs cusses a lot. Corrine does also, but not too much.
















That's it for today! Thanks for reading! 

Style It//Beach Party

Hey guys!

Since almost everyone is craving some time at the beach, here's some cute outfit ideas to help you figure out what to wear! I tried to pick clothing that would be easy to take off when you want to go swimming while keeping you warm once it gets colder. The first outfit is more for people who aren't too sure they're going to swim, but still want to be ready for it. The second one is easy to take off the second you get to the beach. While the last two outfits are easy to take off, the paired scarf can be used a sarong or beach blanket.

DIY Collective//Book Clutch

Hey guys!

I love reading about DIY's and how to's. There's many ways to making a DIY and I love reading about how people go about making them. So I decided to put my favorite DIY's for each project on one place. These are my favorite tutorials for making book clutches! Each has a different difficulty level which makes it easy to find the tutorial fit for you!

Trends and Tolstoy This tutorial involves power tools and a book box for everyone who can't ever imagine cutting up a book. If you're good with power tools or know someone who is, this is perfect! It's also really easy and an easy tutorial for making the book clutch into a crossbody.

Caught On A Whim I think this was one of the first book clutch tutorial I read years ago. It involves a real book and a lot of patience. If you have more time and want a challenge, this is the one for you.

Runway DIY Another book clutch tutorial that I remember reading a long time ago. It includes a video too!

See Kate Sew I love how this one has a zipper closure.

Monoxious This one has a nice step by step tutorial for the clasp using a belt. Pretty easy stuff going on.

A Beautiful Mess Of course, a Beautiful Mess has a tutorial for this! Not only is this easy, it doesn't have much sewing.

Brit + Co. So many pictures that you just can't go wrong with using this tutorial. It's in the middle ground where it's not too hard, but you still have to be careful in following the steps.

Thanks I Made It And last but not least! Thanks I Made It has a small roundup of her favorite tutorials.

What do you think of book clutches? Would you rather make one or rather save up for one?

That's it for today! Thanks for reading! 

LIFE HAPPENS #21

Hey guys!

I didn't do much this week. I did go shopping a few times, but with how frequent I go I don't have enough time to post about what I get. Since my wardrobe is mostly from thrift stores, I find an array of different styles of clothing that I can mix and match to show off my personal style. While at the thrift store, I did find one of my best finds:


A red Nintendo DS lite! It's a little banged up, but it works perfectly fine. It charges and reads games which is the important part. Although I do need to find new Game Boy Advance games as the ones I have don't really work as well anymore. Their batteries are almost dead which means I'm going to have to find a way to replace them.

I also convinced my dad to let me go to Chicago this year! My cousins are visting this year and I will be going with them. Well, not the same flight but one that will land around the same time as theirs. I'm pretty excited to go! I've already researched where I want to go and which places that I just can't miss. I might also be going to Warped Tour! In Chicago! Hopefully I'm able to get tickets for it before they sell out.

This week I also cleaned up my work a bit. I'm still working on cleaning my room as I have a lot of items strewn about. My walls are looking a little bleak so I'm going to start making collages to put up along with my posters.

That's it for today! Thanks for reading!
