I have always loved roller coasters and road trips in the car. But I've noticed as I've gotten older (and after 2 kids,) they don't love me back anymore. Or more specifically, my body hates it. I now get a bit of motion sickness when on rides in the car or at the amusement park. I never really liked taking anything for it because it always knocked me out. But not anymore.

Thanks to Dramamine Non-Drowsy Naturals, I can ride those crazy rides, and not be sick or drowsy. I can now plan a road trip to Six Flags and not have to worry about any of it. Well, not the motion sickness, at least.

"Influenster Venus® Snap with Embrace Review" - Smooth sexy legs with Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace

I love checking my mailbox! Thanks to great companies like Influenster, I get great products like this Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace razor. And I have to say that this is one of my favorite goodies. This is a little pocket sized razor with a convenient carrying case that makes it perfect for travels or just on the go! With Venus, you know you're going to get an close shave that leaves your skin feeling silky soft & smooth. This razor came just in time. With summer on the horizon, we don't want to wear our short shorts with stubbly legs! Not attractive ladies. What makes this razor great, besides the smooth finish on your silky gams, is that you can pop the razor in the case, throw it in your purse, tote, or beach bag & you're good to go. Who hasn't missed a spot in the shower only to find it right before a hot date? Not a problem when you have this little doodad in your bag! Seriously, your summer carry-all is not complete until you have this razor in there.

Something New...

I recently had the chance to try some of the new Old Navy Activewear line for this season and I have to say, it was an awesome experience! I have been a member of a website called CrowdTap for a while now, and as a member you are given opportunities from brands partnered with CrowdTap to sample and share new things. All they ask in return for free products is your word of mouth about it!(For a talker like me, that's no problem!) So I'm facebooking, tweeting, pinning, and blogging like a mad woman. (like always.) I asked my friend Lisa to join me and we had so much fun! So much so, that I completely forgot to take pictures of the fun we were having! But luckily I did get some of us goofing off afterwards in our new Old Navy swag.

I chose this blue geometric print racerback top and paired it with a pair of yoga capris with a blue fold over top. They are so soft and comfortable! They fit very well, and came in a variety of colors too! I had a hard time choosing between all the colors available, but the fun print on this shirt really stood out to me. Lisa chose a compression pant which she has told me is very comfy as well, and that they make her feel sexy! We love our new workout wear and can't wait to get Fit and Fashionable with our Old Navy Activewear! Thanks ON!!

Flip flop redo!! Yay!!

So I've recently seen a lot of flip flop refashions all over the web. In the spirit of summer, I came up with one a little different from the rest. (At least to my knowledge.) They are, for the most part, quite simple. So let's get started!

What you'll need:
A pair of flip flops
Some leather cord
Fabric strips (about 4x44-45")
Hot glue gun
Sewing machine or needle and thread
Wood beads with a large hole (optional)

I started off by cutting out the straps on the flip flops. You'll be left with a bottom with 3 holes in it.

Next take your leather straps and tie a loop that's about 1 inch long. So about 3 inches of leather should do for that one. Once you've made your loop, put it through the hole between your toes and glue the knot into place.

The knot glued into place.

My helpful love gluing in the leather for me. ;)

While you wait for your glue to dry, start sewing your straps. I folded them in half lengthwise with right sides together & stitched up one side. Turn it right side out and tada!!

You're almost done! Now the fun part begins, tying them up!! You will have so many possibilities to try with tying these up, and to be honest, that's the best part of this whole project!! The other fun part is coming up with ideas of things to use for straps. The possibilities really are endless, so have fun!!

Finished product, tied one of many ways, and using a wood bead.

Finished product, tied another way.

I hope you have as much fun doing this as I did!! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know in the section below and I will try my hardest to help you out.

Simple Shirt Refashion

Hello everyone! It's such a beautiful day here, the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. Definitely the kind of day where you want to be super comfortable, so that's brings me to my newest tutorial for you all. It's a quick and simple shirt refashion. I promise, it's so easy!


All you need is an old shirt and a sewing machine!

I decided I wanted to take 4 inches off of this shirt. I tried to think of a way to make this easy to understand, but I'm not so sure I can, so let me explain it like this. Your shirt is two layers, so you would only want to take off 1 inch off both sides of both layers, so the 1 inch you mark will really be two inches. Hopefully, that was clear. Moving right along...

Turn it right sides together (inside out), pin it and sew it up. Don't forget to reverse stitch at the beginning and end of your seams to strengthen your stitch.

It's hard to tell, but I made a zigzag stitch right outside of my new seam to keep it from fraying.

And that's all there is to it! Now you just turn it right side out and put your newly refashioned shirt on and take a picture of yourself! Yay! Haha

See how it fits so much better now? I bet you're thinking of several things you could take in this way, I know I am!
