DIY Bra band extender — great for pregnancy!

DIY bra extender - great for pregnancy!

Pregnancy is a journey unlike any other. Things grow, stretch and otherwise evolve for a bunch of months in many previously unknown ways. Despite buying new bras to accommodate my … bounty (ha ha), I’ve noticed that about halfway through my day, I am suffocating. The cups are great, no problem there. My band, however, goes from a pretty decent size in the morning to ribcage-strangulation-sized in the afternoon-to-evening. And so I came up with this cost-effective alternative to buying several sizes of bra:   … Continue reading

DIY: Upcycle regular jeans into skinny jeans!

Upcycle old jeans into skinny jeans

If you have access to a sewing machine, you can turn some spent old jeans into skinnies. I mean, it’ll probably turn out better if you have some sewing experience, but given that I did this as one of my second or third sewing experiments ever, I’m proof positive that it can be done. Background: I don’t mind jeans with a wider leg, but in the dead of winter, I love to wear my boots. Wider jeans + boots just don’t work together very well. … Continue reading

Rip Taylor

I just had a terrifying experience. I was putting my pants back on after taking a midday shower, when I began to notice they were really, really tight. Suddenly, and to my horror, from the pants I was struggling to pull on, there rang out a loud ripping noise causing me to gasp in fear. Panicking, I inspected the jeans back-and-front to diagnose how repairable the hole would be. Turned out though, fortunately, that I had simply removed my pants without unzipping them, and the … Continue reading

They call me Flipper…

I also love the t-shirt I have put on today. I like to call it “Woodland Creatures”. It’s like a ‘modern’ version of all those Northern Getaway shirts people used to wear. It’s the third t-shirt I’ve bought from H&M’s Organic Cotton line. I don’t know how ‘organic’ it all actually is, but here‘s a rundown. All I know is it’s extra soft and more breathable than regular tees. Anyway, enough product placement. Back to the million-page assignment. Share the post “They call me Flipper…” … Continue reading

Midnight Vulture

Why am I writing at 1:19am? I felt it necessary to publicly declare my love for this t-shirt I bought yesterday. The jeans are really good too. I just revised the second sentence for ‘wordiness’ purposes. You can tell I’ve had the grammar-check on while writing this report, as it’s becoming inherent that I fix, fix, fix. Although three “fix”es in a sentence is ‘wordy’ in and of itself. Little known fact: I wouldn’t mind if I died while listening to “Hook” by Blues Traveler. … Continue reading

Ooo, now e’s breakin’ ‘n ent’rin’ as well!! Fascist!

Returned all the clothes I bought last week, save for the two I was unsure of at first, which ended up being my favourites. Bought little black dress to replace them, as well as pashmina and necklace. Did laundry. Got rained on in St. Catharines, as per the daily agenda. I’m not doing my hair anymore, and I’m barely attempting makeup. F that. It’s summer. This is supposed to be my vacation. Speaking of, I think I’m giving up on the whole co-op idea soon. … Continue reading
