FASHION: DIY- swimsuit cover

I'm sure you all have seen Andrea's Choice very creative video on how to make a super cute bikini cover up!! If not, come out from under that rock and check out the video here :p

Now, I don't have an old cotton dress, so for my first try I opt for an old pencil skirt that got oil stained.

This is what I did

1. Put card board between the skirt to avoid nipping the other side of the skirt. Then I start slowly cutting it into strips until I reach the waist band.

                                         2. I gently pull each string so they become rounded


3. I carefully tie adjacent strings together in knots, row by row (watch the video)

4. I cut off the bottom hem/fold and tag

Not too shabby!!

(OUTFIT with a real bikini next time, lol)

Next time I will try it with something flared (not straight/pencil)

Contemplating if I should do the 'Makeup in 5 (mins)' Tag on YouTube?? It'll give a little change of pace for my Channel, I think :)

Not that big of a difference...right??

Brows filled
Black liner
Gold(ish) liner
Under-eye concealer
Lip stick

(I don't use powder or foundation)
I'm looking for a good, oil free moisturizer. Recommendations?

HAIR: Bant-who?

So, I tried a bantu-out (for the 100th time). This time on dry, non-manipulated (no heat etc.) hair. I also did them a little smaller than usual.

                              Product used: Blue Magic Leave in Conditioner with Mango and Lime

                 I did this style for the boat-ride as well (sea-ing blue post) and it came out marvelous!!
                               UGH!! I am determined to MASTER the bantu- out. I will not give up. :)

 Results: 3/10

Happy Tuesday

Remember I have that undercut? (That i'm trying to grow out). I could not get my hair to stay down in the back, hence the 'pushed up' look.

Enjoy your weekend!!

The 'plan way in advance' Virgo wins again :)

I swore this annual Baby Blue boat ride was June 8th, not June 1st at 8pm!! LOL Oh well, I was ready.

Romper: KMart $17

I usually use the scarf to tie my hair down after I style it so my hair will lay flat. That night, it looked good with the outfit, so hey...

Hair: Bantu Out...then rain fell :/ *sigh*
