Not "no poop," neanderthal.
Short for no shampoo.
I haven't used shampoo, conditioner, or gel in over 2 weeks.
Am I crazy? Maybe.
Two weeks in and I think I have enough oil to solve the energy crisis.
I'm writing this as motivation to keep going!
I bought a DKNY wool coat at Goodwill for $10. And it's really nice and all, it just needed a little spicing up! So I decided to use my faux chinchilla fur I've had for forever to make a fur collar to go on top. And it is just enough to make the coat look fabulous.
Root beer floats have a very special place in my heart. One of my best memories of my grandfather is of him making them for me. Ginger ale also is nostalgic for me; I always have ginger ale on airplane flights and drinking it makes me think of the wonderful places I've had the opportunity to visit. I'm also a ginger junkie--ginger tea, ginger stir fry, candied ginger...it's just awesome.
I've also made more pitiful attempts at making ginger ale than I can shake a stick at (see failed attempts here).
By far, one of the easiest and most delicious from-scratch recipes you'll ever find. You just chop up some ginger, simmer it with some water and sugar, strain it, and you are pretty much good to go. The ginger ale itself is top notch, but the ice cream is really straight up phenomenal.
It takes under 20 minutes, I'd say, start to finish. The ingredients are very simple. Ginger ale junkies need to try this.
Okay, here's a little secret. I'm kind of obsessive, especially with clothes and my crafting. If one itsy bitsy thing is off what I want it to be, then I don't want to wear/use/eat/decorate with it at all.
So a while ago I was on the hunt for the perfect dress. For me, here was the perfect recipe:
Kelly green or emerald green, would settle for forest green if necessary
Compensates for my larger bust and shoulders and my smaller waist
Sleeves--I want to be able to wear this to church or for a date...multipurpose
Not a low neckline, but still interesting
Knee length, again so I can wear it everywhere
Easy to clean/care for
Simple yet adorable
Okay, that's not even the whole list. But I'm very particular when I buy clothes.
So I go on the hunt.
Nowhere on the internet did they have what I wanted. Albeit it was like December and no one was thinking "green knee-length sundresses" but even now in July, you'd never be able to find something that fit my criteria.
But then I stumbled onto eShakti.com, a site full of the most adorable and customizable dresses, shirts, and skirts. Bingo.
