My Favorite Asian

So this is my little Asian friend Nicole, who's actually not that little since she's my height. I love you darling. At first she DID NOT want me to take a picture of her, but I loved her outfit and hair too much not too. She is the first person I actually know in real life to be on this blog!!!! CONGRATS! More of you will follow later!!!

First of all, I love the two shades of bright blue together. It was brilliant to wear those two things! It gives the whole outfit a sporty edge. The cardigan and necklace pull the look together and keep it from looking like a typical 'sporty outfit'. I also like how the bag is a bold color too, it goes with the blue. And jeans and flip flops are perfect for the nice weather we've been having. Thanks for inspiring us Nicole! ^^ Make sure your Mormon sees this!

Earth Day


I firmly believe we are the main cause of global warming. I believe that some of it may be occurring naturally, but we certainly aren't helping. Since we're responsible, we have to try and slow down global warming and atone for our mistakes. I try to use reusable tote bags at the grocery store, take short showers, and I try not to eat meat (except for fish), and I want to buy organic clothing and make up. Someday I'd also like to have a Green clothing line. But we need to do more than that. We need to have a Green attitude. We should appreciate our Earth and not be Green just to be "cool," but because it's something we truly believe in and want to accomplish. Being Green doesn't make us superior to others, it just means we are doing our job as citizens of the Earth. So please, do your job.

The feathers used to be on a dream catcher, and when it fell apart I attached them to jump rings and put them on earrings. I'm also wearing second-hand jeans and bleached them by myself. The tank top is from JoAnn's, I painted it, but forgot to handwash it, so the tree is faded.

So these rings are made out of buttons and elastic cord. I used a crochet hook, made a chain of stitches, slipped on the button (ones with a shank...I believe that's what that's called) and finished the chain. Ta da! I took the pictures while my eyes were I couldn't really see what I was doing.....

Paint splattered sweatshirt with the sleeves cut off. It used to be my Dad's. He was horrified after seeing what I'd done to it, but he did give it to me....First I cut off the sleeves and the finished edge on the pockets, then I also made the armpit holes a little wider. I had to work out in the garage, and my Dad's car was in the garage, so I had to cover it with newspapers. Some of the paint is actually water color paint mixed with acrylic...I was running out of paint. It's an old university sweatshirt, so on the front it says "BOS", which is son of a bitch backwards...I laugh everytime I look at it. :)

Smells Like Teen Spirit

Jeans are originally from Old Navy, but I bought them at Plato's Closet for $8.00. Ha.

Anyways, I tried bleaching them. I had to bleach and rinse 'em about 3 times, and the back still isn't very bleach-y. But I'm happy with the results. I feel more satisfied than if I bought them at Nordstrom Rack for $100. Yikes.

Maybe I should try bleaching used jeans? These ones are new, the tags were still on them. Or maybe a lighter wash? Or black? I've bleached other black material before, and it turned a pretty red orange. Any suggestions?
