Low Carb, Lifestlye Change, Update

I was looking for a picture of me before I started my low carb lifestyle change
that I could compare side by side.
When I finally came across the perfect picture I was a little taken back.
 In the picture on the left was about a year ago and  I weighed 150lbs.
In the picture on the right, my weight this morning was 133lbs,  that is 17 lbs "WOW.!"
Starting this journey 6 months ago was not really something I had planned to do,  sure I wanted to lose 20 -25 lbs but I wanted it to be gone in 2-3 weeks tops!.  You know, Instantly and without much effort.
What happened was short of a revelation on my part. Like I blogged about before,  starting this diet was not my choice, and not by any means  easy at all.   When I hear "Low carb." that means giving up sugar and bread and pasta all the things I love. My brain could not even comprehend that nonsense. Originally when this all started I was just trying to be a good Wife and Friend, by supporting my husband and eating exactly as he did to help him not be tempted.
 Little did I know this would change me and my feelings about food forever.
Fast forward to present time and I have never felt better. I still need to eat more greens and a bigger variety of vegetables.  I still need to exercise more and I still need cut back on my coffee intake and  drink more water, but hey like I  said "Baby steps." I was so addicted to sugar  and I felt like  ate better than most of the people I knew. We as a society eat so much hidden sugar and it is so bad for you. The only  sugar I get presently is in fresh fruit and an occasional piece of really dark chocolate 85% which tastes sweet because  I have not had sugar in so long. My mind feels clear, I have less mood swings, I have more energy and I am still enjoying life just as much.
I am almost to my goal, I have a few pounds left to loose( I loose about 2 pounds a month,) but I can promise you that I will get there and most importantly stay there. I have lots of tips and tricks on how to achieve a low carb lifestyle without feeling deprived.
 I am currently working on a few post about that.
Hopefully that will be coming very soon.
Have a beautiful day,
and a wonderful Thanksgiving with your Family and Friends.
Lots of Love,

Tulle Skirt

I have been wanting a Tulle skirt for a long time, 
so finally  decided  that I needed to make myself one.
Did you know that Tulip makes crystals that you can add to almost anything.
Check out how I added them to this tulle skirt.

*This was a Tutorial I did about a year ago for I Love to Create
I wanted to put the instructions up on my blog so here they are.
A Tulle Skirt would be a great party skirt to wear this Holiday season,
and when you add sparkle it is even better.

Jean panels

I have seen so many leggings and jeggings with different panels added to them. I thought that using  Tulip's holographic, iron on transfer sheets would be a great way to add a little spark to an old pair of jeggings or jeans.
 I really love the way they turned out.
There are a few tricks, so lets get to the DIY.

Leopard, Heart Flats: DIY.

I saw these beautiful Christian Louboutin heart flats( picture below) and thought 

I would love a pair of these but the $695.00 price tag was just a little steep for me.
Why not create something similar for way less.?
Even though the white and red look stunning, leopard and black is more my style.
You could do any color combination I think a red heart on the leopard shoe would have been pretty.
 These shoes took about one hour to make and they wore perfectly. 

I hope you guys enjoy this super easy DIY, 
and I do mean easy.

Lace Cuff Jeans, Revisited

If your jeans are too long  cut them and add a touch of lace in minutes.

Things you need.
  1.  Jeans
  2. Lace about 2 to 3 inches wide and about 30 inches long.
  3. Scissors
  4. Sewing machine or you can hand sew this.
 #1 cut the jeans to the length you want
#2 measure and cut your lace.
#3 Pin the lace to the inside of your jeans sew about an a half of an inch from the bottom of the jeans.

You can stop here and this is what they look like..peeking out from under your jeans.. OR......

 You can cuff the jeans,
Sew around the top of the lace to anchor it and have a lace cuff.

Roll them up 
or down

 I also added a little lace to one of the pockets. (Optional)
I hand stitched this.

Possibilities are endless.
Why not Dye the lace a color,  then sew  it on.
Have a Super Day!
Lots of <3,
