NEW* D.I.Y. PROJECT - One day, I&#8217;ll have a swimwear line produced.
Decided to make a bikini top for an upcoming trip to Vegas. Peep how it started here. Many people don&#8217;t know the steps it takes to make a finished garment, even as simple as a bra. It&#8217;s definitely a process, but therapeutic in my eyes. 
Step1. Took stretched fabric and pinned it to my bra. Drew out the lines and shapes, creating an outline of the bra onto the fabric.
Step2.Took the fabric off, traced the lines onto dot paper. 
Step3. Retraced each shape separately and added seam allowance. Now they&#8217;re separate pattern pieces.
Step4.  Pinned them to a new fabric and cut them out
Step5. Sewed them together. Figured out how to finish them. Made adjustments with markers
Step6. Took it apart again, then repeated from Step2 and on. 
STEP7. Do it until it&#8217;s perfect!!!
2&#160;1/2 - 3 weeks later, you have a bikini top! lol simple right? hahaa nope. But it&#8217;s so worth it because you LOVE it. For me, I can do this forever. :) View high resolution

My best friend, Briana, is prepping for her 2nd gallery show. It will be this weekend in San Francisco. SO upset I’m missing it by a week. But let me show you her brilliance with some of her ‘behind the scenes’ process. I’m always inspired by her…cuz, let’s be real! She is uh-maze-ing-guh. (AND BEAUTIFUL!) 

I’ll share shots of her work hanging up in the gallery soon. 

Check her out!

Had random urges to bake this weekend…like Granola clusters! So goooood.  Won’t type out a cray recipe list for you, because it’s not that cray cray! Here’s what went down:

-1 Egg white

-Honey (will hold them together)

-Granola of your choice (used organic Vanilla Cranberry granola)

Mixed it up - I just eyeballed the amount (sorry doesn’t help lol), baked them for 20 min. until golden then BOOM!, you have the most amazing, scrumptious Granola Clusters in your mouth. You’re welcome! :D 

You may do this at home now! Let me know how it goes.
