the good 'ole days & inspiration

I Remember the Good 'Ole Days when I could sleep in on the weekends past noon... oh wait.. that was only six months ago. Funny how quickly things change. Here is some inspiration I made a few years ago. I will post a printable sometime this week { maybe even a few new ones } so you can print - frame - and enjoy in your home! Thoughtful of me, I know.

& Because I was rambling about  the"good ole days" Here is an old  Halloween photo I found {Perfect timing}:

Also, I have some great news to tell!  I will be hosting my FIRST giveaway starting November 17 which just happens to be my Birthday & My parents Wedding Anniversary.  So stay tuned and make sure you come back to enter the Giveaway!  Well, I am off to work my second job. Toodles!

P.S. Do you all have plans for this Halloween Weekend?  I'd love to hear in the comment section { this may even increase your chance to win my giveaway next month *Hint *hint }

DIY Captoe Shoes

I have been very into this whole "Cap-Toe" look lately. So I went to the mall to check them out in person and try a few styles on only coming to find out they ran a little too expensive for being a "trend."  And That my friends is my problem with super trendy things: It's a trend. Simple as that.  So while it may be all the rage right now, it might not be next month.  So I don't feel like wasting over $80 on something I will be over in the next few months.

Chanel Cap Toe Heels via google

So I opted out for a better, more affordable way to win this trend battle and make them myself!  You can reuse an old pair of flats or heels, or you can purchase an inexpensive pair.

Here's how to create your own
You will need:

- A Pair of flats or heels.
-Modge Podge/ or Spray Paint (Depending on if you want glitter or paint)
-Clear Coat Spray Paint

 Step 1: Tape off shoes

 Step 2: Mix Glitter and Mod Podge in a cup or container

 Step 3: Stir mod podge and glitter and paint across shoe.  ( Note: I had to use many layers to get full coverage)

 Step 4: Peel tape off after it is completely dry, pull at an angle to make sure it creates a straight line  { please excuse my chipped nail polish.. I am in need of a manicure }

 Step 5: Show off your new captoe shoes

What do you think? Will you try to make your own Cap Toe Shoes? What are your favorite trends right now?
