Thank you very much for your continued interest in my Tumblr, thebestdiys. Since I have not been on in a little while, I was so surprised to see that I have now gained 110 followers, which is a amount that I absolutely never expected! I mainly made this Tumblr as a way to keep track of the projects that inspire me, the ones that I wish to create and contort for myself. The fact that you all seem to enjoy it as much as I do is really amazing. Thank you. That being said, I am a full time student, so I cannot guarantee how many posts and when I will post, but I will make sure that what I post is worth your time. Also, in the future, I would like to start posting some of my own DIY project ideas, which you can branch from and make your own. That is, after all, the whole point. :) I am not sure if I will post those on here or create another Tumblr to house those, but in any case I will continue to post here nonetheless. Once again, thanks for the awesome surprise. It is much appreciated.

Dear fashion, lately we’ve been noticing a special glow about you, and P.S.- we love it. From iridescent Dior frocks to Burberry’s shimmering trench coats, Spring style is getting its gleam on. Slip into your own shine with this sneaky DIY that cranks up the wattage on a simple pair of kicks.To create: Cover the rubber rim and tag of the sneaker with paper tape. Next, use a foam brush to coat the shoe with a thin layer of acrylic paint (choose a paint color that compliments the iridescent film, as it will show through). Use scissors to cut 1” squares of the iridescent film, then crinkle each square. Spread mod podge on each piece of film and begin to layer onto surface of sneaker. Continue until the entire surface is covered in iridescent film. Finish and seal with another coat of mod podge, then trim any edges hanging over. Let dry completely before wearing.Get down with DIY and a dope playlistCurated by The Jane Doze
DIY Inspiration: Make a Tee Bigger by Adding Lace Panels. Alternate Title: Why I hate Pinterest today. I received a message asking me to post more tee tutorials/ideas on how to make tees bigger and found this image all over the internet as a DIY with no source. It turns out it’s a $75 Broken Promises Tank here. If you can sew this is such an easy DIY.
Where did I end up finding this after about 15 minutes looking through page after page of images? www.thehunt.com/ I love this site. You can see something in a photo and ask a community of people if they know where to find it or something like it.
