Make A Galaxy Twisted Tee
On a previous tutorial, I showed you a cute way to make Galaxy Jewelry using some everyday products that you have around the house or in your craft corner. You can click here to see it. I bring it up now because it would go really well with this super cute Galaxy Tee that I found on I Love To Create Blog on Blogspot. Get yourself a loose-fitting black t-shirt and have your sewing machine on stand-by. You will need: Tulip Soft Matte Fabric Paint Tulip Fabric Spray Paint Black T-Shirt Bleach Paint brushes Spray bottle Scissors Pins Tape Get started by: 1. Lay shirt out flat and tape down. 2. Mix water and bleach ratio as 3 parts water to 1 part bleach. Pour into spray bottle. 3. Begin spraying the shirt with mix, focusing on just a couple spots. Once the bleach sets, the shirt will turn red and continue to turn unless you rinse it. If you want more bleaching to occur, spray more as needed. Rinse the shirt as soon as you get the right base color. 3. Begin using your Tulip paint to paint on blotches, swirls and any design that looks like a galaxy. 4. Continue doing this with different paint colors--as many or as few as you like. 5. Mix paint with water as you go along to create different effects. 6. Using a stiff paint brush, flick white paint to get dramatic stars. 7. Let your shirt completely dry and follow this with regular wash and dry cycle. 8. Lay your shirt flat and cut off the sleeves. 9. Flip over, with the back side up and mark the center of the back with a piece of soap or fabric chalk. This line should line up to the bottom of the arm hole. 10. Cut along both shoulder seams. This will separate the front and back. 11. Twist the two back pieces. 12. Pin in place and stitch by hand (or use your sewing machine). Once all this is done, you're ready to hang with your girlfriends and have a totally awesome summer. Don't forget to pair this with a cute bando top or a bralette. You can click here for tutorials to help you make one!
18-Year-Old Ties The Knot With His 71-Year-Old Soulmate.
Disclaimer: This is a true story, you guys. Almeda Errell didn't expect to fall in love. The 71-year-old just buried her eldest son, Robert, after losing him to diabetes complications. But, of all places, she met her soulmate at Robert's funeral - a 17-year-old Walmart cashier named Gary. "I wasn't looking for a young man, but Gary just came along," Almeda admitted in an interview with the Daily Mail. "I just knew straight away that he was the one." Gary and Almeda hadn't met before. Almeda was a widow with grown children and grandkids, and Gary was just finishing high school - and already in a rocky relationship with another 77-year-old woman. "We were always fighting," said Gary. "I fell into depression and was looking for a way out." The two were introduced at the funeral by Robert's widow, Lisa, who just so happened to be Gary's aunt. Lisa invited Gary to the funeral, and when he went to give Almeda his condolences, it apparently wasn't too long before sparks flew. "When I told Lisa that I liked Almeda, she said that she liked me too," Gary recalled. "And that she should get us together." For the most part, the pair says that family and friends gave the relationship their blessings. However, there was at least a little skepticism. "Some family members thought Gary was far too young for me, and that I must be crazy," said Almeda. "I told him I wasn't crazy, and that we loved each other." Once he turned 18, Gary proposed to her over the phone, and three weeks after becoming a couple, the pair were married in an intimate ceremony. Currently, the newlyweds live in Almeda's five-bedroom house with her 40-year-old daughter, DeAnna, and grandkids Aaron and Indianna, respectively aged 21 and 16. What do you guys think about extreme age gaps in dating? How would you respond if a friend or family member was in a relationship with a 50+ year age difference? Let me know what you think in the comments below. And for more bizarre but true stories of love, follow my Crazy Stupid Love collection!
Why Hilary Duff's Clothes Shouldn't Define Her Motherhood
Stop slut shaming. Why is it that every time a mom posts a picture of herself where she feels good, the internet has to tear her down because it's too sexy, too provocative, or too inappropriate? Check out the picture that has garnered 118k likes and over 1,000 comments! Hilary Duff, don't let the haters get to you. The 28-year-old mom is under major heat after posting this photo on Tuesday of the outfit she wore to pick up her son Luca from school. Though Duff was feeling 'semi cute' in her very short shorts, tan top, and long trench, many fans had other opinions on her outfit. While Duff did invite her fans to tag themselves in their own #ootd, she got a reaction that were quite the opposite of what she had probably hoped for. "Hey moms! I came up with a semi cute outfit for school drop off! I usually roll in sweat pants or lulu lemons and look like a disaster but this morning I managed to throw something cute together and I thought I would share," Duff captioned the photo. "Cut offs or jeans. A light weight trench over a sweater or tee, cross body bag sneaks or booties and a pair of Sunnies! Now you try! Tag me in your photo (annnnd you don't have to wear such a serious face haha)." Everything from Instagram user señoritaatomasita writing, "I am sorry, the only issue that I have with her outfit is how tiny her shorts are. It given men mix signals about it's okay for them to cat call a female because what she wears. Plus the outfit does not posh" to other user simplelittleway writing, "I have always like her but no way is this appropriate. They look like panties. To whoever said the only ones bothered by this are insecure moms that never lost their baby fat. I love my body and I am thin. I however would never pick my son up in that. It's inappropriate for kids to see woman in their panties. Also I would not want to embarrass my son." Some moms are furious. However, not everyone has the same opinion. Instagram user iledahorsetowater wrote, "Rock it! What is up with all the negativity?? I think you are doing a fabulous job!" Even user shenry1977 loves Duff's style, "Your outfit rocks! Haters = motivators!!!" Many other moms commented that Duff is looking better than ever and there is no reason to retire the shorty shorts to fit a very skewed social standard. Women who support other women, we need more of this. But here's the thing, Duff should be able to wear this because she feels comfortable and it makes her happy. For a society that constantly promotes feminism and girls uniting with other girls to combat slut shaming and gender stereotyping, the negativity comments are doing just the opposite. A mom can be a mom AND sexy, pretty, cute, gorgeous, stunning, funny, and appealing. Just because you have a child does not mean that a woman should sacrifice her identity. Everyone freaked out weeks ago about Kim Kardashian's almost full nude mirror pick and it looks like the same haters have made their way to Duff's post. Leave Duff alone, she looks amazing. One word : WERK.
So True Marriage Quote
Can this quote not be more true? It's so simple, yet when followed for its wisdom, there's no telling how big, bright and beautiful your relationship could be. This one pertains to marriage, but start and stop there? I think this is true of all relationships, regardless of marriage status. Some couples choose not to marry at all. And, for years, gay couples didn't even have a chance at marriage. All I'm saying is, spend your time developing your relationship. No matter how far along, how deep, etc., take time to build it. Just because you're married one day, doesn't mean you know all there is to know about your spouse. Bring back the dating days of frenzied love and lust. And don't do it because it's Valentine's Day (coming up). Do it year-round and because you genuinely love this person! Okay, that's all. I'm done soapboxing! hahaha @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster@AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @tessstevens @paulisadroid @alywoah @jordanhamilton @nicolejb @LAVONYORK @raquelArredondo
