How to make a T-shirt scarf

Ive been seeing a lot of tshirt scarfs within the last few months, so I decided to try it out.
                                                  Heres how to do it:

I bought this shirt from the local goodwill for CHEAP!
Cut off the hem (you will use this to tie the scarf together later)
Cut 1 to 2 inch strips across the length of the shirt stopping right under the armpit.
Pull on the strips until they fold over each other and look like ropes, then put your hand through each rope so they form a loop.

Take the hem of the shirt from earlier wrap it around one end of the loops to keep them together. I used hot glue to make sure it stayed.
For a little extra fun I saved 2 of the ropes and bought some chain from walmart and braided them together. I glued them in at the end where the end of the scarf was wrapped.
All finished!!

December Birchbox

A quick overview of my December box:

This months box has things to get you ready for those holidy parties.

(left to right)
Benefit pore fessional face primeer- this stuff helps shrink pore size
Jouer gloss- in color, Birchbox Pink- This color was specially made for birchbox and it a very sheer fushia

Birchbox pink swatch

Yogini perfume- This perfume has hints of sandlewood, myrrh and grapefruit. I am not a big sandlewood scent person so I thing this perfume smells awful! :(

Nuxe dry oil- This oil absorbs fast and leaves a nice shimmer. Will be fun for summer all over the legs to give a little sheen and glow!

Treates this month were:
  EBoost- energy Vitamin C boost drink packette, to help give some energy while your out at holiday parties.
 Showstoppers- double sided tape, to help your dress stay on! :)

My december box was another ok box. Im honestly not sure if Im going to continue with the service or not. Ill give it another month or two then Ill make a decision.


I love Mac eyeshadow in sketch! It is so pretty. All I did for this look is put down an eyeshadow base, sweep sketch all over my lid and used all that glitters by Mac on my browbone.

Nars Bysance look

I decided to do a very basic eye look with my Nars Bysance duo just to show the colors. I have been using this a lot. I love the gold color for holiday looks. 

added a little MAC- macroviolet gel liner to amp up the purple.

My favorite holiday candles!

I love it when the holiday season comes around, I love seeing all the decorations and lights everywhere, the smell of christmas in the house..I also love the smell of holiday candles! Here are my favorite 3... all are from Bath and Body Works, Slatkin & Co.

Spice description stated on bottom of candle "The perfect Christmas spice- Red hot cinnamon, warm clove and spiced orange peel."
I can actually smell all 3 scents in this candle! It is the perfect candle to burn on cool nights as it makes my whole place feel warmer. 

Marshmallow Fireside description on candle " Toasted marshmallows and sweet vanilla cream wrapped in the aroma of rich smoldering woods."
I think it smells like marshmallow mixed with mens cologne...Im sure that doesnt seem like it would smell good but it works and this candle is one of my favorites so far! 

Tis the season description on candle "Golden apples, pine needles, and holiday cider are combined with a touch of ground cinnamon."
I am not a fan of pine smells but this candle has just a hint of pine and more of a cider scent, I love burning this one any time of day.

This little candle holder is my favorite. Love the snowflakes :)

I have been attempting to teach myself how to crochet. I have wanted to learn how to do this for a long time and I decided now seemed like a good time. My first project was a scarf. It came out's a bit lopsided and one end is wider than the other but all and all not bad for my first attempt. Hopefully soon I'll be able to take a class that micheals offers. Then I'll learn how to really do this.
