WoW... Better known as Words of Wisdom

When my sister was moving down to San Francisco, she decided to leave this totally awesome frame behind which I later decided to turn into a chalk board (thank you Pinterest). I decided that I would fill the board with either inspirational quotes because I'm totally cheesy (and do get motivated by them) or goals that I may have. To hold myself to this self promise, I thought that I would blog a quote each week because there are so many good ones out there that I am always finding. Hope you enjoy! :)

As if we didn't already know that I love to bedazzle sh*t...

Instead of investing in an entirely new bathing suit for our family vaca to Maui, Hi, I decided to use my creative juices (lately attributed to Pinterest) and make my own! One night when I should have been asleep and was pinning like a mad women until the wee hours of 2am, I stumbled upon this photo.

I instantly thought it would be the perfect addition to my swim suit collection. That top was priced for $98 and I knew that I could make it for half, at least! So I started scouring the internet for a cute black top that I could bedazzle the sh*t out of.  I have been known for bedazzling many things- Seahawks jerseys, halloween costumes, crunk cups with friends in HS... you name it.  I think my bedazzling started at an early age with dance costumes.

I found the retro styled top on Victoria's Secret and the pyramid studs on eBay.  About a week later, my supplies arrived and I got to work.  Poking those studs through layers of fabric wasn't the easiest thing in the world and left me with no feeling in my fingers, but I was really happy with the outcome!

Voila! Here I am in Hawaii wearing the suit with some black VS cheeky bottoms that I already owned! Best part, one of a kind suit and cost me only $45!

Aloha! :)
