Happy Wordless Wednesday…
Happy Flip Flop Friday! DIY Jeweled Flip Flops.
Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share this fun DIY for jeweled flip-flops project with you all. I realize it’s more wintery now– but really– who can’t use another pair of flip-flops to wear around the house? It’s not snowing yet, right? At least not here in southern California anyway.
Have fun and Happy Friday! Anyone who makes these– send me pics!
Lightly sand the straps of the flip-flops with sandpaper or use steel wool to roughen them up and make it easier for the glue to adhere. Wipe the straps clean with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol.
Place dots of glue onto the flip-flop strap in the pattern you want the rhinestones to be placed. Do just a few dots of glue at a time. Make the dots of glue just large enough so that when you press the rhinestone into them, the glue will also come around the edges of the rhinestone. This requires some practice.
Pick up a rhinestone by lightly touching it with the tip of the applicator, then press the rhinestone into the dot of glue. Repeat with the next rhinestone crystal and continue until the straps are covered.
Let glue fully dry, usually 24 to 72 hours. For optimal adhesion, add an extra day or two.

Celebrate Flip Flop Friday with Wine!
Happy Flip Flop Friday everyone! I had no idea there was such a thing as a flip-flop brand of wine. I found this wine earlier in the week at the grocery store. Really cute label and a fun way to celebrate Friday!
Better yet, a portion of the proceeds from sales of flip-flop wines benefits Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity dedicated to providing footwear to those in need.
Cheers and Happy Flip Flop Friday! Remember to celebrate responsibly.

Swimsuit Shopping in December? Is this even possible?!
Tonite I find myself shopping for a swimsuit– online, of course. (No super well-lit fitting rooms for me!) Especially since it’s December there are precious few swimsuits in the actual stores right now anyway.
Right now I’m searching the Victoria’s Secret website, Nordstrom website, and Spanx (yes, they make swim wear!). So far, just a whole lotta shopping. With any luck at all I will be in the hot tub soon– in a new swim suit! Readers– if you have suggestions on where to find cute styles in the middle of the winter, I am all ears.
