How To Style a Graphic Tee

How To Style a Graphic Tee

Hey cupcakes! Today I decided to do a post on the graphic tee trend. I have been seeing bold, graphic tees everywhere, and I think they are awesome because they can be casual or dressed up. In the first look, a cute graphic tee with jeans and converse creates the perfect outfit if you want to look good without much time. The second outfit pairs a jean jacket over the tee with killer wedges that creates a kick butt look. Lastly, the same graphic tee with a black skater skirt looks semi dressy and totally adorable! What do you enjoy wearing with your graphic tees? Comment below!! <3

DIY Resin Jewelry - The Basics!

Hey cupcakes!! :) Today I will be teaching you how to make your own jewelry with resin! I recently began using resin after I got some for Christmas and it is super fun to use! The jewelry items you can make with resin are endless, and you can save money by making those jewelry pieces on your wishlist all by yourself!
These are just the VERY basic instructions for using resin, but trial and error is the best way to create wonderful pieces. :) embrace your creativity!!!!!!

Here is what you will need:

-Resin of some sort (I got EasyCast off of Amazon)

-Cup to mix it in
-Popsicle stick to mix it with
-Lighter or match
-Mold or bezels 

Instructions:

1. Mix the resin and the hardener in the cup with the Popsicle stick according to the instructions for your resin! Each resin is different so be careful!!!!

2. Pour the resin into your mold (sprayed with Pam) or bezel. 

3. If you are using a mold, the front of the jewelry item is on the BOTTOM, but if you use a bezel you are looking at the front. Fill with whatever you would like to complete the piece (stickers, glitter, trinkets, metal charms, paint colors, etc)

4. Swipe the flame of a lighter over the piece to get rid of bubbles.

5. Let it set for however long the instructions tell you. (EasyCast is 24 hours)

6. If in a mold, remove by putting in freezer for a few minutes and then pulling them out. 

7. Attach a bail or eyepin with E-6000 glue to create the charm. 

8. You can then enjoy the charm or dome the back by adding another batch of resin on the back of the charm. Enjoy!

What's in my Purse!



Hey cupcakes! Today I will be showing you guys what is in my purse! I've seen lots of YouTubers do this, so why not have some bloggers do it as well?
My purse is from the brand Rosetti, and it is a nice black cross body (LINK HERE). I'm not really one for designer handbags, so I like to purchases simple purses that will match almost any outfit. This one is especially nice because you can adjust the strap to be a cross body or just a normal purse.


What is in my purse:
  • My wallet (DUH) - it contains my license, debit card, gift cards, and money
  • Keys - My key chain contains my house key and my car key
  • Lip balm - I always need lip balm when I am on the go! 
  • Mirror - for occasional makeup, hair, and teeth checks
  • Lotion - my hands get really dry (especially now since it is the winter) so this is very handy
  • Hand sanitizer - I always use this before I eat 
  • Granola bar or other snack - I always bring a snack with me if I'm hungry on the go!
  • Feminine products - Just in case! :P
That is about it! What do you have in your purse? Comment below!

Dorm Decor: DIY Photo Board

Hey cupcakes!!!!! Now that I am slowly preparing myself for college next fall, I have begun to make some items for my dorm. This photo board is sooooo easy and quick! I also made it for less than $2 because I had most of the supplies already! Whoa.
Here is what you will need:

-Black foam board from Dollar Tree ($1)
-Photos (the first 25 photos you print from Walmart are free when you sign up online!)
-Glue
-Mod Podge Matte
-Paintbrush
-Command poster strips

Instructions:

1. Buy the materials. Find pictures from Facebook, Instagram, etc. and send to your local Walmart. I bought thirty and only paid $0.80 with the first 25 free! (Go to the Walmart photo center's website to register)

2. Place foam board on a flat surface. 

3. Figure out how you are going to arrange your pictures. I was using a tutorial on Pinterest and she cut out squares. I decided to use many shapes so all of my pictures would fit. 

4. Cut out the pictures and glue onto board.

5. Mod podge over the pictures (it looks like you are ruining the photos but don't worry you won't!)

6. Hang with some Command poster strips! Enjoy!!!!!

Movie Review: Annie

Release date: 19 December 2014

Rating: PG


When I saw the trailer for this movie, I was very skeptical. I enjoyed the old Annie movies, and a modern twist with a black Annie did not seem like a good idea. However, I was VERY wrong! I went to see this movie with a group of my friends, and I enjoyed it so much that I took my boyfriend to see it another day. The modern twist updated Annie into something kids in these generations will enjoy! The songs have been made somewhat modern, but are still the classic songs everyone knows. They also added the song 'Opportunity' which was beautiful! I have been listening to the soundtrack for this movie way too much ;) Kids these days do not seem to enjoy musicals as much as past generations did, so this movie helps them to love a great classic musical. :) Even though Annie is a foster kid and not an orphan, the modern twist really worked in this movie. I enjoyed myself both times I went to see this movie, and I recommend it to anyone who has not seen it! 

What did you think about the movie? Comment below!!! <3 Also, what other movies would you like me to review? Have a great day!
