This title may sound weird but it is definitely true. Tuesday is not my friend.
But not just this Tuesday, every Tuesday. Tuesday to me is the Monday to most people. If that makes sense. Why do I despise Tuesdays so much you ask? Because on Monday, I can accept that I have to get up at an ungodly hour, try to put on my makeup still half asleep, eat a breakfast I’m not hungry for, and then spend 4 hours at school before completing the numerous tasks I have to do at home.
But then I have to do it again on Tuesday?! Ughhhhhhh.
If I could choose the events that occur throughout my Tuesday, it would include these activities (in no particular order):
Eat Chinese food (preferably for breakfast)
Have somebody bake me a cake that is not myself.
Stare at my ceiling.
Eat Chinese food.
Eat ice cream.
Make a craft I’m not obligated to make.
Write a song.
Eat Chinese food.
Sleep all day.
I wish life were like that. However, since it’s not like that I try to make the best out of my Tuesday.
Things I found particularly good that made my Tuesday a little better:
Making these confetti cupcakes. They were so delicious (sorry, no recipe. Then there would be no reason for my cupcake business ;))
My piano. Because I love my piano.
Running shoes. Because even though the thought of working out makes me cringe, I feel so much better afterwards.
And lastly, the summer weather. Only about 14 days of school left and I’m ready!
Clearly, this is my new attempt to make the hard days a little better, so if I post these once in a while, just work with me here. Okay, now what you came here for. How to shrink TOMS!
This year for Prom I decided to wear TOMS with my dress. I bought them but when I tried them on they slipped right off my feet like flip flops 🙁
Sorry about the pictures. They were taken at night time.
I wanted to shrink them in the wash, but I guess that will tear them to pieces. Which I expected. I mean, come on, handmade shoes won’t hold up being thrashed around in a medal cylinder.
Here’s how I shrunk my TOMS the easy way!
Rinse your TOMS with hot water trying to avoid the leather part. This will be really hard to do, and you will probably stop caring and give up. It’s okay, it will dry. They might stink a little though, so use some odor powder to rid of that!
Set them out where it is hot! Since I’m in Vegas, that was not difficult. Next time though, I will dry them outside. I just did it in the garage, and it was not as hot as I expected.
When they’re dry, put them on! They should shrink about 1/2-1 size. If they are any bigger than that, return them.
Here’s a picture of my and my boyfriend on Prom. You can’t see my shoes but this is the dress they went with. I’m so excited to see the pictures taken by our photographer! Really can’t wait.
Also, it’s already 107 degrees in Vegas. IN MAY! This is getting crazy. If you’ve never been in extreme heat like that, then you know why I’m so distraught.
Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday 😉
