Ab Workout

This ab workout is truly amazing! I have done it for three days and I already notice a difference. The great thing about this workout is when you stop "feeling the burn" you add more. I can feel it always, it's like a reminder that I've done it and I will do it. It is perfect for procrastinators like myself. I hope you try it out, and tell me what you think!!

  • Crunches
  • Situps
  • V-ups
  • Straddle-ups
  • Pike-ups
  • Hollow Body
Do two of each (two seconds for hollow body) and then start over doing four of each; then six; then eight; and then ten. Do a twenty second cool-down between six and eight.

Ideas On Makeup

I'm sorry guys for not uploading this Saturday! I was really busy... and also I had noooo ideas. But now I have an idea, so all's well that ends well!

Okay so my idea: my makeup ideas.Ta da!!!! I want to share with you what I think of makeup. I wear makeup on a regular basis. One of my friends asked me what I think of makeup. Also she asked if as I get older, I would wear more makeup. I felt as if I am wearing enough as it is!! I am serious about makeup, but I don't think that more makeup is needed. I wrote down all of my thoughts on makeup. Please read through and send me your ideas on makeup.

  • Make up is an exaggerator. It exaggerates your natural beauty. 
  • Most girls 11 to 12 wear makeup. Don't get all denial like on me! Even if it's just mascara or BB cream, it's considered makeup. 
  • Most girls from 11 to 12 don't need concealer. My mom doesn't wear concealer, so if you ever see her sparkling it's not her makeup. 
  • I believe every girl has at least one natural plus to beauty. One at least. 
  • Nail polish is not considered makeup to me. Ever.
  • Mask makeup is not aloud in my world.
  • Some people are against curling lashes. Really, I consider that one of best things you can do to when you don't want to wear any makeup.
  • Every girl is beautiful. God made us that way. No matter what anyone ever tells you, or how anyone ever looks at you, know that you are beautiful in God's eyes. If other people are to stupid to see your beauty. than it's their fault.
Check out this post on natural makeup how-to!
XO for the day!

New Bows!

Hey guys! I've got a new tutorial coming your way! On a scale of one to ten it would probably be five in difficulty. Any lets get started!

What you need:

  • 2 4"x2" piece of fabric
  • 4"x1" piece of fabric
  • Sewing machine 
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Clip
  • Hot glue gun

First, stack your biggest pieces of fabric (pattern on the inside). Then, sew all the sides except for one end. Inside it out (flip it so the pattern is showing). Iron it so that the edges are pressed down. Next, on the end that didn't get sewed, fold in about 1/4 of an inch and press it down with the iron. Now, sew all the way around making a cute seam. Set that aside.   Taking your smaller piece of fabric, fold in each end evenly; sew down the middle. Taking your Rectangle fabric, Wrap the thin piece around the middle once and tighten or loosen to your liking. Sew right where the fabric meets after being wrapped around. Snip the leftover fabric. Hot glue to clip. 

That is it! You can also purchase these bows at my etsy shop, Girls Love Chevron Shop. Go to my shop page and click these bows. You can request fabrics as well. Thanks for reading!
