cabin fever: DIY Tie Tank

Here is how to make your very own DIY front-tie-crop-top-tank-top. I don't really know the technical term of it, but it is a great shirt to throw on for the summer! It's more than easy to make. All you need is a baggy t-shirt and a pair of scissors!

Start with any old t-shirt, and cut the neckline and arms. Cut it to how it would fit you best!
Then, cut a slit in the middle, from the bottom of the t-shirt to your belly button.

Then, tie away!

Voila! Your very own tie tank top. Easy right?

If this weekend wasn't relaxing, then I don't know what relaxing is! Two of my bestest friends and I went up to the cabin for the 3-day weekend. The weather was gorgeous, allowing me to gain a great tan. I'm a firm user of sunscreen, but even the constant reapplying didn't prevent me from a slight burn! Besides tanning, we went on the boat and tubed. (Which is basically being pulled on an inflated tube by a speed boat.) Very fun, but tiring. My arms actually are sore from holding on to the tube for dear life! I will admit that I wiped out few, well many, times. Although the air temperature was in the 80's, the water felt like Antarctica. After a solid day in the sun, we watched tons of movies. Bridesmaids is just a classic movie. If you haven't seen it yet, you should change that. It is hilarious. I also finally got the chance to watch Stepbrothers. Was it good? Well, if you like Will Ferrel, then this movie is for you. Okay, now I'm sounding like a movie blogger or something so I will stop. 

I have a math test tomorrow... better start studying for that. Why is it that teachers schedule tests the day we come back after a long weekend? Anybody have an answer to that question?

I hope you all had a great weekend as well, and let me know if you tried the DIY!
