For this, you will need a t shirt, scissors and a hot glue gun. I used this tank, just because I love the texture. I’m pretty sure it would work for a t, so I’m including it in the 100 ways :)
- Cut your shirt in half, and then cut the top off, so you have 2 loops. If your shirt isnt fitted like…

DIY Shift Dress | Martha Stewart
I can’t really wear dresses like this… big boobs are my misfortune. For serious, don’t ever be sad about small boobs, they are my envy! And don’t get me started on strapless bras for bigger chested gals. Do the people who make these know that corset torture went out in the 1800’s?! I feel like Scarlett getting roped in whenever I put those things on. So even though I love these dresses, I also love being able to breath. That wins out every time.
OK, enough about boobs. This is such a gorgeous dress and perfect for those summer days when it’s so hot that you feel like your shoes are going to melt. Actually it was so hot one day that my shoes did melt. Don’t wear cheap plastic shoes if you’re going to be walking on hot roads. Just FYI.
Wow this little piece is going way off the rails. So I’m going to finish it up quickly by saying: nice dress, pretty, easy to make, you should make it.
DIY Braided Chignon on triple maxtons.com
Want to change up your ‘do? Look no further than this simple braided chignon….it’s chic, looks pretty polished or unkempt, and most importantly - it’s really easy. Here’s how to get the look:
Pick up one of these essentials - a hair donut- from your local beauty supply store. They make these in all sorts of colors and styles - the one below is a 3” round for blondies like myself. If you would rather go the budget route, you can cut the toe end off a clean tube sock and roll it up. Either way works.
Start by parting your hair down the middle, and then braid some of the hair on the sides.
Pull your hair back into a low ponytail, and secure with a hair tie.
Pull your ponytail through the hole, and start bobbie pinning hair section by section around the donut. Don’t worry about longer hair sticking out quite yet - you’ll fix that at the end. Another way to go about this is to fan the hair around the donut and pull a hair tie over it.
Once the donut is fully covered, take the longer hair pieces and twist them around the base of your chignon. Pin in place.
Voila- a beautiful hairstyle in under 5 mins!

I started on a new project, I was inspired by pictures online of bleach dip dyed jeans and shirts so I thought id try it out myself. I took a few old plain tees I barely ever wore and commenced bleaching them.
I plan on making more creative designs using the bleaching method other than just dip dyeing. Overall I am very pleased with the outcomes and I love that every shirt comes out differently so they are all uniquely yours!
