Totally ME Tees & Tanks
June 05, 2013
This Saturday is Best Friend’s Day! So, of course, I’m totally going to hang out with my pals. And I am going to plan for rain, just in case. It’s been really rainy lately and even though I’d really rather play outside I wanted to make sure I’m prepared to play inside, too.
I am going to bring bleach pens, cardboard and newspaper to my friend’s house on Saturday when we hang out so we can make bleach pen T-shirts and tanks. We could even decorate jean shorts or something; that would be really cute! Here is a picture of one I did with my mom last year. It’s really easy. Just make sure you protect your work area so you don’t accidentally bleach a couch or chair or even worse, something fab from your closet that you totally love! Eeek! Anyway, once you follow the directions on the back of the bleach pen for how to make it work, just draw whatever design you want on your old or reused or plain piece of clothing that you’ve decided to decorate. I like tank tops in the summer because it gets really hot where I live, (but I always make sure to wear sunscreen when I know I’m going to be outside.)

Spring is totally one of my favorite times of the year because of all the bright green grass and pretty flowers on the ground and even in the trees! This is also the time of year that I start to get REALLY excited about summer because school is almost out, which means pool time and camp with friends that I haven’t seen in forever. Plus, since it’s warmer, I’ve switched out my winter clothes and put more of my dresses and T-shirts back into my closet and I’ve packed away all my big, comfy sweaters.
Spring fashion feels so good because you get to wear bright colors, just like the flowers and grass at this time of year! Wearing bright colors is the perfect way to make you feel happy all day long. I think my favorite bright colors to wear this year are hot pink and lime. a really bright yellowy-green that goes with practically EVERYTHING. I have also been learning more simple ways to update my clothes myself. Like getting fabric markers and an old white or gray T-shirt and a long ruler and drawing lines across the front of the T-shirt. I like using a blue or navy color fabric marker instead of black, because black is so blah. Plus, navy goes well with those bright colors I like and it even works with brown or black pants or shoes. Navy and bright colors are the perfect way to stretch your spring and summer wardrobe.
You should try it! I also love all the stuff I’m finding and updating from thrift stores lately. More on that later.
Keep it real!

And second, you know how I always tell you that I make coupons for my parents as gifts? Well, Build-A-Bear Workshop made some blank ones for you this year so you can do it, too! It’s really easy. Just visitto print them, then cut them along the dotted lines and write in the chores or other things you want to give her for your Mother’s Day gift!
I usually give my mom stuff like making or cleaning up after dinner, doing laundry, vacuuming the house, and of course, I always throw in a couple special days or girl times in there, too. After all, we have to make sure we get our special time together!
Have a fabulous weekend!
