    yah, that amy winehouse thing was a collab effort and has been in the works for a while.
    also, i am in love with that watemark tee! i’m making two:one with a quote from my favorite poem, and another for my sorority. I think the girls will love it…maybe it can be a whole chapter project or something :)

    “Reasons why I don’t tan” – love it, and it’s a shame that there are people out there who think this is controversial. I don’t know about you other pale folks out there, but I was called names like “Ghost” “Casper” “Whitey” “Albino” growing up, and still get it here and there even outside of gradeschool. I once had a highschool boyfriend offer to pay for me to hit up the tanning beds, and I also kicked a guy in the balls when I was 15 because he asked me if I was a real albino. Its rude and ridiculous and for that reason I am personally offended if anyone out there says I can’t be proud of my white (I mean REALLY white) skin!

    I tried the headband curling method and I awoke to Taylor Swift like curls. No joke. I was so pleased! (: It’s a must try.

    i did the headband technique for getting curls last night, and I got the most amazing ones! My hair almost NEVER holds a curl from a curling iron, but I have had perfect ringlets all day long that are super bouncy (with only a mist of hairspray!). I will definitely be using this method in the future…. Awesome!
    I want to do the sock bun one too but I am horrible at making the bun so I don’t know if that will work so well…
