Miguel - Adorn you

I know I'm late with this song or what but its my favorite right now lol. I heard it for the first time in Dallas, this weekend. I'm really surprised that the video doesn't have any choreography. It makes me want to dance lol.

"The same way that the stars adorn the sky... "  ;)

DIY: I made a bow tie :)

This is my second real crack at trying to sew. I didn't freestyle this time, like I did with the wallet. I was at work doing trend research earlier in the day and came across these cool bow ties called Jupe by Jackie. I like the shaped and the style of them. I worked with some available fabrics that I had. One side is a black waxed canvas and the other is a printed linen.

ANNNND... its reversible! 

I have to make the neck strap for the bow tie next. I'm very excited to finish it and see someone actually wear it :)

[Amazing documentary]: "Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead"

I heard about this documentary a while back from Jessica, but Brienne got me to finally sit down and take a look. I watched it last night and it has definitely motivated me in more ways than just wanting to try this fast. His whole story can inspire you to do so much. The movie is available on Netflix or you can watch the whole thing on YouTube. Here's the trailer:

Look what I made :) - Tea wallet

Its a tea wallet! lol This is actually pretty funny to me. I've been wanting to make something like this for a while and I finally got a chance to sit and get creative with my new sewing machine. I was soooo intimidated by the sewing machine when I first got it, but I'm definitely starting to get a better feel for how I'm supposed to do things. Don't judge me by the way the end result looks. I promise I'll get better.

 I blended the tea myself. The ingredients are chamomile flowers, lavender, peppermint, and white tea leaves. I call this the "relaxation" blend.
 After I cut up the tea filter..... I plan to get more creative with the tea bag shapes and stitching. Just wait... lol

The finished wallet. I should have taken more/better pics but I was in my zone lol. Maybe I'll take video next time.... or when I'm ready.
