DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge Nothing’s more radiant than a little gradient, so fade into Spring and tone up your wardrobe with a look that’s anything but shady. The ombre trend has spread from tresses to dresses, as seen in this season’s to-dye-for designs from Band of Outsiders, Theyskens’ Theory and Margiella. Tell your own short story by adding a splash of color to j’amazing lace! To create: Start at the hem of your shorts and spray black fabric paint about four inches up. Add extra coats of paint closer to the hem, keeping the top clean and paint-free. Use a piece of paper to repel and block paint as you work your way up. Continue spraying, concentrating more on the bottom, until you achieve the desired ombre effect. Repeat on the reverse side, then hang until completely dry.P.S.- Click here to watch the How To Video!
JboydJboyd Dryer Vent Pumpkin For those of you who maybe haven't see this industrial pumpkin before, here is what you need: Dryer vent (purchased at your local hardware store), orange spray paint, a stem (I used cinnamon sticks, but you can use sticks or whatever you want), and a little bit of raffia. I cut and glued the vent into a donut using hot glue. Then I spray painted the whole thing, making sure to get in all the groves. Attach the cinnamon sticks and raffia, you have yourself a cute little pumpkin!

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!
DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge P is for Personality, which is precisely what printed jeans ooze of. Glide your way into this mainstream must-have with this denim DO! Get inspired by Balmain’s coveted graphic jean with a snakeskin twist. Bulgari’s Serpenti Collection of chic bracelets, bags, wallets and watches has slithered into our hearts, helping our style shine bright. Infuse a luxe snakeskin-esque pattern with a pop of print… it’s just what the DIY doctor ordered. To create: use a solid colored pair of jeans for the base. Use scissors to cut zig zag shapes out of kitchen sponges and textured sponge cloths into 2” inch strips. Apply an even coat of fabric paint onto the sponge surface and press directly onto the denim starting from the outside edge. Hold sponge for a few seconds allowing paint to absorb into the material. Continue to create vertical patterns down the legs. For a more textured effect, overlap sponges as you go. Let one side dry completely before turning over to repeat the process on the back.
