Diy Macrame Upcycled Lawn Chair
This chair had a fabric covering, but it tore on the seat. So I cut it all off, and ordered some satin cord, and did this - it is so awesome! Great way to save an old chair.

I got the Satin cord on ebay, (used about 120 yards of silver, and about 70-80 yards each of aqua and light blue);
I used a tutorial on Youtube for the weaving.

When I was finished I coated it with a clear acrylic sealer / spray paint to protect it from the elements.

The chair is very sturdy ::: the weaving is tight and strong, and it's so pretty - hopefully it will last a long time. <3

Then that God is the Truth.

and truth is a sharp two edged sword: the greatest danger to your egoic head, and the only way home.

Om Namah Shivaya <3
I recently had an nteresting experience at Char's Thai on 5th st in Tucson, AZ:

We ordered over the phone and received the wrong dish (we ordered #73 and received #23). We called and were told we could come back to get a replacement dish. We went to pick it up, and were asked to bring back the old order. We went home and returned again with the old order. The staff opened the box and had a discussion which ended with "No, we can't sell that, throw it away". To top it all off, after all that trouble, we were charged a $1.50 price difference for the new food.

Apparently they re-sell food that is taken home and returned: I found that a bit shocking.
Is that illegal..?
And it was not pleasing to be charged extra after being put through so much inconvenience.
Also, the food is okay, but far from the best Thai food I've had. My favorite Thai dish is usually the cashew chicken (with tofu), but at this restaurant it tasted much different and not nearly as good as I'm used to.
Strawberry Cupcake RecipeStrawberry Stuffed Cupcakes!
Simple, easy and oh so yummy =)
Moist and fluffy, and stuffed with a whole strawberry.

This recipe makes approximately 6-8 cupcakes.


  • 1 Cup strawberries chopped small
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup milk (thick fatty coconut milk recommended)
  • 1/4 Cup butter ::: melted or atleast softened
  • 1.5 Tsp vanilla extract
  • Strawberry Nesquick (optional)
  • 1 Cup flour
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • Whole strawberries with stems/tops cut off :: same amount as number of cupcakes.
  • Frosting of choice
  • Whipped Cream (optional)


  1. Mix dry ingredients and set bowl aside.
  2. Mix wet ingredients: I recommend blending them or using an electric mixer. Add a couple squirts of strawberry nesquick to make it pinker and add yummy flavor.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix until combined :: stir them as little as possible.
  4. Fill cupcake pan/holders about 3/4 full, place a whole strawberry in the center of each one with the flat top up, and bake for 20-25 mins.
  5. Allow to cool, then frost and top with whipped cream.

Hand painted Sun-Burst Hippy WedgesDIY Hand Painted Shoes
I got these shoes really cheap because one was mis-colored. They were originally a dusty blue color.

They look much better now =)

Painted with acrylic paint, then sealed with acrylic sealer.


This is an easy way to achieve a good looking DIY hair cut at home.

You will need atleast shoulder length hair. Nice sharp scissors are helpful.

Wet the hair and comb it forward (as neatly as possible) and put it in a pony tail in front of your forehead.
Now cut off the end of the pony tail: the more length you cut off the pony tail the longer the layers will be.

This layering creates a nice cascading effect toward the back.

It is so simple and easy! And costs no money. Luv it!
You can achieve different layering effects depending on where you place the pony tail on your head.

Germinated Brown Rice (GBR)
I highly recommend always sprouting brown rice before cooking it, for the health benefits are too good to miss: and it is so easy. All you do is soak it for about 12-18 hours before cooking it: this makes the rice begin to germinate. You can soak it in plain room temp water, or green tea to prevent bacteria activity (which will effect the flavor a little bit).

Germinated brown rice tastes so good: very clean flavor, slightly nutty and sweet.

Great for detoxing with! You can simply eat only or mostly sprouted brown rice for an extended period of time, and it will be very cleansing and healing for your body and mind.

If you can't stand eating just plain rice, you can dress it up a little bit - just try to keep it simple and healthy.
Some examples:

: add some milk (coconut, or sprouted almond milk), mashed banana, and cinnamon.
Lunch: add diced cucumber and avocado, and a pinch of Himalayan sea salt.
Dinner: add diced tomato and chopped fresh basil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
