NO SEW CUTE SHORTS

Simple twist on the classic american flag jean shorts




This fabric glue has worked the best for me, follow instructions on the bottle!!


I bought some lace trim at a local fabric shop, cut them to fit the pockets and glued them like so


Same thing for the sequin side. 

Once you glue it you will want to let it sit for about 24 hours before washing, I am currently destroying the bottoms as well :)

Decided against getting a full set and just spent about 7 bucks on these cheap Wet n Wild nail polish colors from Target. Might switch out the red in the future for a brighter orange though.

Drunk Barbie 21st Birthday Cake



This was a fun one to make! Just make a basic cake, and get some girly frosting. I got the Barbie and accessories all from Walmart all for under $10 :-) Great way to gift little shooters to the birthday girl too.

What is a stye?



According to WebMD, a stye isan infection that causes a tender red lump on the eyelid. Most styes occur along the edge of the eyelid.

It's basically like getting a bruise on your eyelid, and they always show up at the worst time.

Styes are usually caused by a combination of a clogged oil gland and staphylococcal bacteria, which often live right on the skin surface. Our bodies are coated with billions of friendly bacteria that coexist with us. When the conditions are right, the bacteria become overabundant, resulting in the tender pimple.
I'm not sure if it's myth or not, but I have always heard that they are caused by not removing your makeup before bed.

Anyways, I have one this morning and so I was researching how to remove them and found some great tips that actually work!

*DO NOT attempt to squeeze/pop it.

There are ointments you can buy but ain't nobody got time for that ;)

Fresh parsley
has been a traditional home remedy ingredient used for decades, all for good reason too.  In the herb world, parsley is known as the all in one multi-vitamin wonder herb. It is credited in helping everything from blood maintenance, how to get rid of a stye in one day.
Simple to prepare, toss a fist full of fresh parsley into a mixing bowl, mix in a cup of boiling water and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Using a clean washcloth, immerse in liquid.  Use as a compress, leave on eye for 15 minutes, terrific for bring down, puffiness and swelling around the eyes.

Apply a rang-out warm wash cloth to it every hour for about 10-15 minutes. This not only relieves pain and inflammation, but also helps the stye resolve faster. 

If styes recur, your doctor may prescribe a local antibiotic ointment or an oral antibiotic. Take the antibiotic as directed.


Any other tips and tricks that you have had success with?
