My DIY Gilmore Girls Shirts

My DIY Gilmore Girls Shirts

 

Today I am heading up to my sister’s house for the week and wanted to surprise her with a Gilmore Girls themed shirt since we are both really excited to watch the new episodes. I’d looked for shirts to buy online but some of the nicer ones were expensive, and I figured I could try to make the shirts myself instead. I’d seen a tutorial on how to screen print at home using a vinyl cutter and had been wanting to give it a try.

My Experiment with DIY Wash-Out Pastel Hair Dye

My Experiment with DIY Wash-Out Pastel Hair Dye

I get really bored when it comes to my hair and I’ve always wanted fun, pastel colored hair. In high school I had blue hair for a few weeks, but as a responsible adult with a job in a corporate firm, the fun colors would not fly. Then this summer I came up with the idea of trying a hair dye that washed out in a few days so I could have fun weekend hair.

 

I did some Googling and came across tons of praise for the temporary Water Color Hydrating Color Mask that is sold by Urban Outfitters. Unfortunately it was sold out so I kept looking for other options.

 

Then I saw this awesome blog post on how to make your own wash-out hydrating dye mask at home. The dye was supposed to wash out in 3 days, be gentle on your hair,  and seemed very easy to make so I decided to give it a try. I had a long weekend coming up, with a Dave Matthews concert, and I thought it would be the perfect occasion to have have lavender hair. I’d also like to note that I had a hair appointment later in the week so if it turned out to be a mess, I could get by with it up in a ponytail for a few days. I wasn’t sure it was even going to work.

DIY Fold-Over Elastic Hair Ties

 DIY Fold-Over Elastic Hair Ties

I’ve been using the fold-over elastic hair ties for years now and I love them. They are gentler on your hair than traditional hair ties and minimize hair breakage. The only thing is, I always lose them, often to one of the cats the like to steal them. I decided instead of paying $5 for 5 hair ties, I’d spend $5 and make 20 myself.

Easy DIY Dog Treats

Yesterday I decided to make the animals treats from scratch. I’ve been wanting to make them treats for a while since Sophie is on a limited ingredient diet for allergies and I wanted to do something special for Bernie while he adjusts to our home. I realize he won’t know I actually made him treats, but doing something nice for him still felt good.
