DIY TeePee

Hey guys!
So I was looking to revamp my sons room, I really wanted to get him a tee pee but they cost a pretty penny that I don't have. So I did a little research and this is what I came up with, I'll link some of the original tutorials that I looked at through the tutorial. Its the lazy DIYer tutorial

DIY Teepee

What you'll need:
4 Sticks 2x1x6ft
Elastic
Tshirt (cut in strips)
Canvas/Fabric
Staple Gun or Needle and thread

Step 1- Gather your sticks
This is pretty self explanatory, I got mine pre-cut from Lowes about $1 each stick
Step 2- Secure with elastic
This part of the tutorial I saw over on A CUP OF JO and the type of elastic she used it better suited for this project but I couldn't find it and didn't have the patience to keep looking. I used some sort of flat bun jee elastic, tied it, then cut the ends.
Step 3- Separate to desired size
Push the bottom of the sticks out to create the structure of the tee pee. I made mine to fit in the corner of my sons room.
Step 4- Cover and secure
Take a white tshirt and cut off the bottom seem, then cut 2 strips and wrap them under and over the wood pieces and elastic, make sure to cover the elastic.
Step 5- Cover with Fabric
This will probably be the hardest part depending on how you choose to secure the fabric
Drape the fabric over the wood(btw I used a drop cloth), Start securing it from the back first
Staple Gun: which was my method since I am lazy and impatient, start stapling from the top and make you way down for a total of about 4 staple per piece of wood
Thread: With a needle and thread secure the wood on top middle and bottom of the wood pieces

Note: When I was done with this I had some extra fabric hanging from the bottom of the tee pee so I cut off the excess cut a triangle and stapled it to the top of the tee pee opening, this is optional but I liked the look of it better

Faking the Sun

With this New York City weather trying to kill us me and my skin have been craving for some sun. The sun refused to cooperate so I decided to take a little trip to Duane Read and try to capture some sun myself. I researched dupes for Benefits Sun Beam and was hoping to find one when I went shopping but couldn't find one so I settled for this. Physicians formula Glow-Boosting pressed  shimmer bronzer, while it did give me a soft golden glow it wasn't as much as I was hoping for. The packaging is pretty cool and convenient for traveling and throwing in your purse. I think once I actually have a tan it'll look really good. If you're looking for something  subtle like in the photo you can click here to see the product.

Editors Note: Still looking for the sun

Fashion Tips

As I was endlessly surfing the web out of sheer boredom I cam across a list of fashion tips. Heres the round up of the ones i found most interesting.

“If you don’t have time to try on jeans in the store, try the Neck Method: You can determine your size by placing the waistline of the jeans around the diameter of your neck. If the waistline of the pant comfortably meets at back of your neck, then the jeans will fit.”— Sarah Ahmed, Creative Director, DL1961 Premium Denim

Snap clip-on earrings onto flats for an instant evening shoe, or onto shirt collars for DIY embellishments

Break in stiff or too-snug shoes by slipping them on with socks and blasting your feet with a hot hairdryer.

Use shaving cream and a washcloth to remove liquid makeup from shirt collars.

There’s nothing cooler than sticking to a signature style you know looks good on you. Slaves to fashion are never chic!

For more tips and tricks, this is the original post. Stay Warm!
