This is the last you’ll see of me as blonde. I’m coloring my hair today. A lavender-lilac-pale-purple shade. The color I had on my hair a few posts ago was actually just purple shampoo. You know the stuff that just takes the yellow out. Well I just left that on my hair in the shower for about 15 mins. This time though I want a tad bit more of a pinkish shade, and a pit more permanent. The shampoo washed out after about 1 wash and just looked grey and dingy.

Anyways check out my Pinterest hair board to see what is inspiring me!

DIY: Velcro Changeable Trims

Cute trims on shorts are all over the place right now. I knew I had to think of a clever DIY that was different than just sewing on lace trim to the bottom of your favorite pair of denim shorts and loosing them to lace forever. And I did! So take that brain!
“Now with my Fabulous DIY Velcro Interchangeable Trim you can keep your fave cut-off shorts and Velcro on a cute trim anytime you want to spice them up, without changing them permanently.” (*in crazy infomercial voice.)
Pretty cool huh?!

I decided to get some trims from Jo-Ann’s, but I also thought I could reuse some of those adorable shopping bags you get from Free People.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
* Trims
* Shorts (Denim or any kind really)
* Velcro (I got 2 packs of Velcro Fabric Fusion Iron On – In black)
* Iron
* Scissors
* Pins

STEP 1: With your shorts inside out, grab a piece of the looped side of the Velcro. (That’s the soft side. That way if you have no trim on your shorts it won’t irritate your legs.) Peel the Velcro from the plastic backing.

STEP 2: Place the stick side on to your shorts at the bottom.

STEP 3: Go all the way around shorts on both side. I did 6 on each leg. 3 in the back and 3 in the front.

STEP 4: Measure your trim by pinning it around the bottom of your shorts.

STEP 5: Cut off any extra trim, but leave a small overlap. Repeat for both legs.

STEP 6: Peel plastic backing of hooked side and place onto the trim. Start to remove the pins and place as you go.

STEP 7: Remove all trim. Heat iron, following the directions from the Velcro instructions.

STEP 8: Iron on the looped Velcro to your shorts.

STEP 9: Iron on the hooked Velcro to your trim.

REPEAT! Iron on Velcro to as many different trims you have!

As I write this blog post I’m listening to this Matt Costa song I really want to sing. I’ll have to talk Aaron into learning it, and maybe I can post a little video of us playing it for next Tuneday!
This week has been a crazy one. More change. I can only say I’m looking forward to my future. Exciting things to come!

OH I do have a question for you guys! I’m posting my looks on other sites. Lookbook.nu, Chictopia, and ASOS Fashion Finder. Do you guys use any of those?

Hiiiyaaa! Karate chop! Thanks for all the love and receiving me back so warmly yesterday. It really made my decision to come back to blogging so very worth it.

Now moving on, because I’ve said too many nice things about you guys 😉 , I’ve once again stolen this shirt from my hubs closet. He doesn’t wear it anyways so don’t fret. Although I’m not actually allowed in his closet for the time being due to the fact that he has my Christmas present hidden in there. Hopefully it’s not the new black H&M scarf he has hanging in there, because I’m about to steal that. Is it weird that I wear almost half of my husbands clothes? Do any of you raid your mans wardrobe?

Oh did you guys notice that I drank a magic elixir last night that made my hair grow to longer lengths? Or it might be clip-in extensions… either way next week I’ll show you how I did it.

As for now, au revoir until next time.
