Little Updates

 Last night Jake and I went to see Dispatch! I don't think he cared at all quite honestly. But I had a blast and had been waiting forever to see them, I bought those tickets months ago. Ok and then people just kept like telling me how much they loved my stars and stripes booty shorts seen here which was very flattering yes. But like, I posed for pictures? I wish I knew how to get them because we totally forgot to take pictures of each other or together. That kind of sucks. I paired those shorts with a kind of baggy Jack Daniels tank, vintage buckskin fringe boots, and a Aksels CO snapback.  Had a blast. 
 The only thing is that Jake doesn't listen to Dispatch or really know who they are so he just didn't get the epic that was happening. 
 Good Old War
They
were
great. 
 LOL my favorite Denver bar
 I was really happy when this guy didn't get his dreads cut off. I don't think he ever really wanted to, he's just trying to get it in with that stylist. Which, btw, he totally is. 
 Thanks to my boy Brandon was able to get my hair done at the ah-mazing Indie Six salon. It's pretty much the same only healthier. No more green or blue, just kind of got over it. 
 Most importantly Jake and I both were able to register to vote last night!!!!!!! We were afraid we wouldn't be able to since we don't have CO licenses and some states make you register at least 2 months before but nope! I'm so excited and proud of this, it might seem weird, or weird that I wasn't already but idk I'm just really happy that I get to be a part of it.  
 Ugh, 5o'clock traffic. 
And then there was that weird night I let Zeale sign my booby area. And his drummer. I'm pretty proud of this one too...
And finally after a nice lunch date with these two amazing people I'm at home. Where I should be doing the last of my weekly homework but instead I'm blogging and watching Jersey Shore. I fucking love Jersey Shore.

DIY veiled beanie

When I saw this tutorial over on EffiesMakeupBox for a Jill Sander inspired beanie, I knew I had to have one. Only I couldn't find birdcage fabric anywhere and even if I had it probably wouldn't have been black. This project took maybe 10 minuets to make and most of that was spent trying to keep Abbey from feeding me ranch Pringles. It also only cost 2.96 to make, score. 
Yes, my hair is looking particularly frizzy. A lot of this has to do whit just being out of the shower and the fact that I never brush my hair. I have my first real hair appointment on Friday, which I'm slightly terrified of. But maybe she can do something about how much damage I've caused it over the years.

DIY College sweatshirt

Alright so I'm a poor person. There's no reason for me to be a poor constantly broke person but I am, because I spend too much on clothes. I can't help it. I love clothes. I love them. I love fashion...
Sorry, was having a moment.
But I've really started to realize that most of these things I'm spending hundreds of dollars on a month are really just American Apparel shirts with iron on letters. I mean really, literally, look at this Wildfox Couture Sweatshirt featured on Dollskill. Hello, I can make that. So this isn't really an informative DIY more of just a post on my new found love of iron on letters and plain shirts. I need to find a place online where I can buy them in a surplus amount. 
Taking inspiration from Belushi in Animal House, I made this. 

 I need tons more shirts and letters. TONS. I've tried this before in the past but have always been too impatient to have good results. But I'm older and wiser now, so it's going rather well. And now Jake is all like "make me shirts I want shirts give me shirts woman"
I'm sorry if we talk about him too much...I'm happy. 
 Um...so...don't be a moron and forget to put a cloth between the letters and iron...like duh right. I did that...this morning...it turns yellow and I was just lucky enough to realize my mistake before it was ruined. It is a little yellow in places though...oh well. 

And this only seems appropriate.

Blueberry Pomegranate Green Tea

This shit is delicious. I made it this morning and foolishly said I would bring some for Jake. Now I don't really want to share it, buuuutttttt I'm going to. Full of metabolism boosting goodness as well as rich in antioxidants it's super tasty and easy to make. 
You will need-
Click on links for justification and health benefits
Ok, I didn't measure the amounts of fruit I used because I was basically just winging this whole thing and wasn't sure it was even going to be good. 
 Make tea, I'm used to making super strong sweet tea so I take 6 tea bags and tie them together. Let it come to a boil and then steep for at least an hour or so. 
 Add your blueberries and pomegranate seeds to the tea in a pitcher. Even everything out with water, muddle the fruit a little bit. Ok, I also added 1/2 cup of sugar...I like my tea sweet. The more it sits and the more you muddle the more infused and delicious it will become.

And another

Day of productivity, actually it was highly productive just not in the ways I had wanted it to be. Really I'm just hanging out with Jake, who isn't allowed to fall asleep till late tonight. So...I'm kind of babysitting. Everyone just assumes we live together so they're always turning to me and saying ok you need to make sure of this, this, and this. And I'm like ok I will, until I have to get my child home at a reasonable hour.
that's my shirt damnit
They like each other. 
My mouth looks weird in this, like woah man woah. 
But at least we're watching Spice World now. 
He's a sweet boy. Oh wait never mind, I watch football and NASCAR with him all the time. Even though I like football...but he likes boobs so it's still a good trade off. 
And speaking of the Spice Girls, dude I've wanted some Chupa Chups for like years now. Really I want the ice cream flavored ones, nom nom nooooommmmmm
But these would be pretty amazing too.

Guys hate wedges

 Did you know that? They do. They hate wedges.
 Hey mamma, I didn't know either. I have a pair of these great black laceup bootie wedges and apparently, guys hate them. My friend was always commenting on them when I or my sister would wear them and how ugly they were. So yesterday when we were in a shoe store we were discussing his hatred of wedges and he said this after the sales girl and I said how much easier they were to walk in "I don't care if they're easier to walk in, make an effort."
Both our faces after his comment. Excuse me? Make an effort? Please. I'm sorry I don't run around in strappy stilettos on a daily basis, I wasn't aware this meant I was letting myself go. I would also like to mention, I wear the highest heals I can afford and find. I don't wear heels that are less than 6 inches. Make an effort... MAKE AN EFFORT MY ASS. I'm only 5'4, on a good day so the higher the better. But, guys hate wedges...so I guess I won't be wearing those anymore, at least not around guys...really if I had the money I would buy these in every color they make and wear them everyday. 
 Oh, and furry boots. Because it snows in Colorado all winter, and you can still wear these here. No really, it's ok, you won't even be out of style, everyone does it. It took a while to get used to but now I'm all like, fuck yea boots with fur. Warm as hell I tell you what. Pictures of knees are so awkward looking...
I will give it to him though, after insulting my foot wear he did buy me these. So all is forgiven. Which is good because I was really picturing that meme in my head "I wear heels bigger than your dick"

Living in the state of "cannot catch a fucking break"

I had this whole thing typed out about how crap my week was but then I erased it all because really, I just hope Jake doesn't die. I wish I was at the hospital with him now. I wish I hadn't had to leave in the first place. I feel so guilty for that. I feel so helpless now, all I can do is stay awake for updates. 
This is a very cool shirt that I might have to "borrow" available here. I really need to go to American Apparel  and stock up on t's. I wish they're over priced plain clothes weren't to softest and best around, but sadly they are. And I will comply.

Star Wars and UNIF



 I seriously think I need to change this blog from "Meganmakescute" to like "Meganpostpicturesofherselfinherunderwear" because really, that's all I seem to do these days. I AM SORRY. I've got some projects coming up, one of them is specifically for winter and I may be jumping the gun posting it already. I'm just busy man.  I don't like my lack of crafting anymore than you do. I really hate that I've spent money for supplies and they just sit in bags on my floor. It's really bothering me. I don't quite feel myself, not making as many things. A lot of this I can blame on a boy. I hang out with him and it takes up a lot of my time. I can't help it. I feel like all I do is make excuses for myself. I'll stop now.
But on the plus side my obsession with UNIF is beginning to materialize. I got this shirt and a jacket in the mail this week and am absolutely in love with them both. I seriously want to spend all my money on these amazingly overpirced kickass shirts.  
I did make those pieces behind my head. One is a White Stripes reference and the other is from The Darjeeling Limited, which if you haven't seen should go watch right this second. It's amazing.
But here is the tutorial if you feel like making them.

NEW LAPTOP SO EXCITED

Thanks to a good friend of mine I have finally acquired a new/used laptop. And I am excited about it. Today, right now, is the first time I've been really able to use it. This is going to make late night homework sooo much easier.
Because it's totally bizarre.

true true


Except-
Daryl Dixon-most bad ass person on show, goes all fucking primal and kills zombies like a boss after falling down a cliff. Then gets shot. Then still kicks more ass. Plus let's not forget, he's also a fucking Irish vigilante who cauterized his brother's wound with an iron.  
Boba Fett- Most anti climactic death in the galaxy.

DIY Neil Conley Inspired Snow Globes

These Neil Conley snow globes are amazing and a statement about the BP oil spill and how poorly that situation was handled. I fell in love with these a while back and decided to make some inspired ones for myself. 
 You'll need-
a jar
glitter, maybe not extra fine...it floats?
creatures
spray paint
glue gun
 pick your creatures and glue them together and to the inside of the lid. 
 Spray paint everything, let it dry completely. 
 Add glitter and water. I feel like there is a step I missed, like adding something to make the glitter not float maybe? Idgaf, I didn't do it but maybe you should look into it?
 Put it all together. I used one of those rubber things to really secure the lid on there. 
Shake up your new political statement snow globe, look at how environmentally conscience you are!
I'm sorry, that last comment may have been rude. I've been facebook fighting over politics since last night. Tell me, if the Left is so understanding and accepting of other people's beliefs and lives then why are they always trying to shove it down my throat and blame me for everything? I would never do that to anyone. We don't have the same ideas? That's ok, we can still be friends.

it speaks

I'm doing homework and junk and I had to record a test video for my Public Speaking class. I always wonder what people sounds like in real life and if it's anything close to what I thought. And ok, I don't really have anything else to say right now. 
video
and I hope it works I guess, cause I don't really know how to fix it if not.
