DIY Wildfox inspiration necklace

Once upon a time there was a girl named Megan, who couldn't afford her tastes. Luckily she was clever and crafty and got to make things instead of buy them and saved a shit load of money. 
 So this took some planning, since I couldn't just find gold letters like I thought I could. I rolled out thin sheets of over bake clay and used stickers as templates. 

 When they were all cut out I poked holes in them for the jump rings. Baked according to package, spray painted gold, attached rings and chain. 
 Savings-about $65

Bun Wrap Inspiration

I'd say it's time for summer and hair accessories, but it was snowing here yesterday. But I can dream, damnit.
OK, so, bun wraps, kind of a big deal right now. I can see why. Top knots are crazy easy for warmer weather and summer show season is about to start. These are fun.
Here's some inspiration.  and here's a DIY
Here's mine
It's pieces of things I had around. Some leather cord in blue and brown, chain, feathers. The feathers were already attached to jump rings because I just took them off ones I don't really wear anymore. 


ooohhh, lordchild, look at how bad I need to cut my bangs.

Let's make out


Not really, what I meant was "let's sit around and real talk then I'll buy you a drink for putting up with the ridiculous existence that is Megan Downs".
Right now in this very moment I am doing a few things, listening to Pandora, waiting for my friend to get off work, trying to decide what to wear, and in some ways the most important thing is texting my husband exhusband Dustin. I say that's the most important because I just said something to him and then I realized it was true. We're going to a show in May and I was trying to decide what to wear ( I plan outfits by events not dates) and he said something about not dressing "slutty". Which led to a few more comments and then I said this-
 "Hey man, I like the way I look, I'm not insecure about it anymore"
I think this is the first time it's been true. I'm not insecure about myself anymore. I used to have crippling anxiety about how I look and myself as a person. I would get dressed in the morning and decide not to go to school. I've been at water parks and started crying before I'd take off my swimsuit cover in front of people.  I don't anymore. I am who I am. I look the way I look. I can always be thinned, my hair and skin could always be better and I know that. But overall, I'm pretty fucking golden. Fuck you if you're not into it, you don't run my life.
Sure in the greater scheme of life there are things I'd like to change but as far as being at some kind of inner peace with myself, I totally am.
Be happy people, own and work with what you've got. It takes a shitton less effort to be happy than to dwell on the past and things you've probably created in your head. .  

Also, yeah that picture is odd, it's just a still from this video I made Anthony. WHOSE trip I would document but I think the pictures are starting to get repetitive.
