DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge Declare your love for cool tools and be a cut above the rest! Girls on-the-go with modern, multifaceted style need to be prepared for anything that comes their way. Enter life’s must-have accessory; the Swiss Army knife. For centuries, these legendary tools have battled rogue threads on our cocktail dresses, smoothed chips in perfectly manicured nails and so much more. Our pocketknife pal stays put in our purse and is as essential as lipgloss! Aside from the obvious “fix-it” functions, we’re big fans of using this handheld toolbox to DIY. Read on to learn how you can create a coveted “kiltie” embellishment for heels in need of an overhaul. To create, trace and cut a template (almost like a stretched trapezoid) on paper. P.S.- The size will depend on your shoe size. Be sure to measure the template to the shoe before cutting and also leave a few extra inches toward the upper portion to tuck into the shoe. Use your Swiss Army knife (on a cutting board with a flat surface) and cut two pieces of fabric. Any type of suede or leather-like material works. Use mini snips to cut two-inch slits. Continue to use snips to create an inverted “V” fringe. Pierce two tiny slits with your knife half-way down. Feed cord through the holes, leaving space for your ankle to fit in. Lastly, add a bead detail to the ends and tie a cute bow. Get creative with your colors of materials, cords, and shoes- mix and match your heart away…Your Swiss Army pocket knife pal is super sharp… your DIY style should be too!
NessaNessa Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say. If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge them. You have no right making other people feel like crap just because you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time. But, when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a change. You can either try and change how you look, and transform your body into something that you’ll adore… Or, you can learn to accept and love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that they love absolutely everything about themselves. Learn to take something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat. Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay, bisexual, straight, whatever. You’re you, and you are beautiful no matter what.Everybody is different, every body is different.[Exerpts from my blog; http://missbigbeauty.tumblr.com]BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
Jack Overland FrostJack Overland Frost Who says there’s a dearth of things for guys to collect over at shopping sites like Etsy? Ryan MacDonald’s prints and cards all feature oddball characters and monsters — my pick would be the one where the protagonist seems to have stuck a box over his head and stormed out of an office and is off to do… odd things. Of course there’s lots of other characters that Ryan draws — many of which would actually be great to read up in a comic. And no wonder too: he credits his inspiration source as comics, street art, and the sublime colors in nature!
vibrantyouthe4vibrantyouthe4 Sony has been developing PlayStation games and consoles since 1994, when it first released the PlayStation in Japan. Since then, PlayStation has gone under a few major changes and redesigns, progressing through the PS2 to the PS3, and now the new PS4 will be released in December 2013. The new Dualshock Controller will have a touch pad and a movement sensor – brand new features added on to the classic PlayStation controller that we all know and love! The PlayStation controller has been black since the PlayStation 2 console released in 2000, and it looks like the new PlayStation controller will follow that trend. The first PlayStation controller that was completely wireless came out in 2006 with the PlayStation 3, and the new controller will also be wireless too – a common trend for all gaming consoles in our modern technology! The top selling PS3 game sold over 7.3 million units – Gran Turismo 5! Will a new Gran Turismo come out soon for the PlayStation 4? Since it was originally released, the PlayStation console sold 120.49 million consoled, the PlayStation 2 console sold 150 million units, and the PlayStation 3 console sold 57 million units. This new console releasing in 2013 may be what PlayStation needs to bring their sales back up with a new console, better features, faster hardware, and top of the line technology.
lizliz From the original post: " Whenever I go clothes shopping and I find myself not too happy with my reflection or discover the clothes I really like don’t fit, I get my camera out and take a few photos of myself in the mirror instead of letting any negative thoughts creep in. I took this one yesterday after discovering a dress I fell in love with the moment I saw it didn’t fit me properly around the bust. I did a few silly poses, a few sexy poses and a few happy ones where I smiled as widely as I could and focused on all the things about me and about my body that I like. I came out of the fitting room feeling really positive about myself and how I look instead of brooding over the fact that the dress was too small for me. I really recommend doing this when going clothes shopping - it it’s a great way to chase away any negative thoughts or disappointment if clothes don’t fit!"
