Disney Outfit #1 - Stained Glass Timeless Tunic

For my first outfit for my upcoming trip to Disney, I created this beautiful Beauty and the Beast modified Timeless Tunic. This is one of my favorite patterns because it is super flattering for my body type and it uses woven fabric! Which let's be honest, the options for woven fabric are far greater than knit fabric.


The Beauty and the Beast Stained Glass fabric is from Joann Fabric and is 100% cotton.


The pattern I used was a modified Timeless Tunic from Patterns for Pirates. I absolutely love circle skirts, so I thought this fabric would be perfect to try out of my first pattern modification.
You can find the Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic Patteren here.
For this outfit, I actually found the fabric first and then ordered the ears second. I saw this fabric and knew the Yub Nub shop had a pair that would match perfectly.


This pair of ears is one of her printed ears that she designed herself but they can also be purchased in the hand painted version.



I cannot wait to wear this…

How it all Began

At some point in time, I stumbled upon an Etsy Shop called the Yub Nub Shop. The owner hand paints the most stunning ears I have ever laid my eyes upon.

Not only does she create custom ears, but she also has monthly mystery ears.

I think I own about 10 pairs, and I am not afraid to admit that. 
Pictured above is one of my custom pairs that feature Wall-E, BB-8 (Who is wearing R2-D2 ears), and Bayamax.
The only problem was that when I received my ears (especially the mystery ears because they are well a mystery) I suddenly felt the need to make sure that my ears match my outfit. 
In my most recent trip to Disney in April for the Dark Side Challenge, I had brought with me a different pair of ears and coordinating outfits for the 7 days I was there. At the time, I was mostly just creating my own t-shirts with iron on decals. 
Fast forward to May. It was very odd, I one day woke up with the sudden desire to start sewing again and had also discovered all of these wonderful online custom fa…

Ordering from Lush UK

Okay, so I know forever ago I posted about an order that I placed on the lush UK website. But I really just want to make this blog post about what it is like to order from the lush UK website, because I feel I had gone in a little blind when I did.
The only reason I wanted to order from the lush UK website in the first place was because they had the Easter stuff way before the North American website did, but I never realized how much cheaper it can actually be to order from their UK site either.
Anyway lets get started with the facts.
One thing that is different on the UK website is that you can buy the fresh face masks, but this is something I do not recommend because with how long shipping can be your mask may not get to you within three weeks, and with it not being refrigerated that whole time it just seems like a bit of a waste.
Another random fact is that for the UK website you need to add a message saying what samples you would like to get in your package, but my experienc…

How to Break Lush Bath Bombs

So this is just a quick little post on how I break up my bath bombs to get maximum use out of them. I saw in the lush store that they use knifes to cut them but I like my method better.

By doing this I can get up six uses out of each bath bomb, and I feel I get more out of my money this way. Even with the smaller pieces the water still changes color, smells amazing, and moisturizes. So do not hesitate to break up your bath bombs.
1. Place bath bomb inside a plastic sandwich bag (this is what I store my bath bombs in and this way there is nothing wasted)
2. Place a screw driver onto the bath bomb and hammer the screw driver into the bath bomb with a shoe (yes sad but true, this is how I break my bath bombs)
3. Break it in half, and then break those half pieces again if you would like.
I know this method is a little odd but its just what I found laying around the house. but instead of being able to take 8 lush baths, I can now take 27, which is good considering how expensive the bath b…
