Since the Fourth of July is less than a week away now I had to pull out these lovely pair of shorts! It’s one of my go to pieces of clothing for most patriotic holidays. Since it’s been 3 years since I made these bad boys I thought I would pull them out and link y’all back to the original post. It’s super simple to do, and I highly suggest it! Especially since they still look great after a few years!
Choosing what to put on my graduation cap was such a struggle. I had literally been brainstorming ideas since the fall semester and by the last 2 weeks of school I still hadn’t decided. I had pinned a ton of ideas and was trying to find something that was unique and not many other people would have. Then one night my dad just quoted this song from Aladdin (which is my favorite Disney movie) and I thought it totally fit with school finishing, and the fact that I had a tassel.
So of course being a blogger whenever I have a DIY project I have to share it with you all!
Step 1. I decided what I wanted on the cap and set the size of everything in a word document and printed it out.
Step 2. I measured and cut the gold sheet of paper to the size of my cap.
Step 3. I found the spot where the button is and marked that on the gold paper. I then cut an X and fit that on the top of the hat around the button. This part was a little tricky, but the point is to make the paper fit around the hat so it won’t come off.
Step 4 (optional). I didn’t glue my paper down because I felt like it was tight enough on the cap not to fall off, but you can totally do that!
Step 5. I eye balled and hand lettered mine, but you could trace out the letters.
Step 6. Paint in your design. Then TA DA!!!
I am so happy with the way my cap turned out. It felt so much like me, and I was happy I got to make it myself.
Today I wanted to share with you guys a recent smoothie recipe that I have been loving! I drink fruit smoothies pretty consistently especially after a morning work out. I’ve always seen the recipes for green smoothies, but putting vegetables with fruit just did not seem like something I would like. Then I stumbled across this recipe and was like ya know what I think I could stomach that! and I loved it! So I thought I would share with you how I’ve slowly added some green to my smoothies.
Now most recipes give you like a quantity of how much of each to add. Since I’m just making one serving I just kind of eyeball it, but I tried to measure it out for you. Also, I sometimes like to add yogurt to my smoothie, but I didn’t here. If you want to add some feel free!
- 1 cup spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1/2 cup of fruit juice
- Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth.
- Serve immediately.
I know that it is the middle of summer, but I love banana bread! I feel like it could be a year round thing. My mom and I made this yesterday, and it is sooooo good! My mom normally just leaves the bananas out so that way they get mushy and are easy to just add in the kitchen aid.
A good recipe is this one here. Let me know if you guys try it out!
Happy July!! Can you believe we are already half way through 2015! I feel like the older I get the faster time goes by. Maybe that’s why adults constantly say they never have enough hours in the day.
Forth of July is this weekend, and I just wanted to show off these shorts I made a few years back. I did a DIY post on how to make them and you can check it out here. They were so easy to make and I’ve worn them for the celebration the last two years. My sister even made a pair and she wears them so frequently just as a regular pair of shorts!
Do you have a typical Forth of July outfit?
Christmas is in 2 days!! I am so excited! Today I am sharing a DIY for a last minute Christmas gift. I made these coasters in literally less than an hour and I am so excited to give them to Michael’s family tomorrow! I think they came out really cute, and I really hope his parents, and sister like them.
I went to my local Michael’s and bought these cork squares. They came in packs of 4 and weren’t that expensive! I think $2 each. The first time around I tried to sketch out the letter and paint it, but that didn’t work out so great. So second trip to Michael’s and I bought the pack of letters.
After everything was taped I spray painted them making sure everything was good and covered. Once the paint was dry just pull off the tape and ta da!
To make them look all cute I hand lettered gift tags that I bought from Target’s dollar section, and tied them up with twine!
7.You can either bake for an hour at 200 (f) degrees or air dry overnight, flipping occasionally to make sure they stay straight throughout the drying process.
Once you are done put a string or ribbon through and hang it on the tree!
