A DIY Party! Fly on a Nickle

Hey guys! I hope that your day is going awesome! I’m just getting LuLuChris58 business in order. If you read my about me on the bottom right hand corner, it say I am a ghost writer for another blog. Well I was in the beginning of starting this blog, but I am horrible at two things group work and multitasking! Anyways I wrote a post similar to the one I’m writing now. It’s about dressing your kids nice on a dime, or as the title says, a nickle!

I am very passionate about fashion and frugality! Growing up and through a bit of adulthood, I was broke! When my son was little, I reminded myself of a trick that I thought I had left in high school. I remembered how to look good on a nickle! We all want our kids to look nice and trendy! What we don’t want is to flatten our wallets by doing so! What’s the solution to this? Have a DIY swap party! Here’s how it works. Get parents together with kids with different sizes in shoes and clothing! Assign each parent to bring an item to help DIY each item and get to working! Not only did you get practically free items but you also give your child an item that once belonged to a friend but no one will ever know!

So maybe you’re thinking, no one in my group isn’t crafty. No problem. If you are in the Upstate of SC, I plan on hosting a few of these parties in August! If you are not in this area, don’t worry! I would be happy to Skype or facetime with you guys and walk you through the party! I will have more details in a later post this month.

If you guys decide to have a DIY swap party, let me know! Take plenty of pictures for Instagram and tag them with the hash tag #luluchris58! What are your thoughts on the DIY party? Comment below! Also what are you guys watching on TV today?? You all know I’m a marathon junky, lolx!! Til next post..✌duces and🙏truces!

Take a simple 2.00 Hanes tshirt and add strips of leather to make one the trendiest and cool items of this summer, the cross tshirt! This cost me 2.50 vs 40.00. Also take an old shirt of your son and turn it into a fringe tank for your daughter! Price was free!!

Good Afternoon! On the Go!

Hey Guys! How is everything going today? I am so late on the “Good Morning” post. I have been up since 7 am working. I am beat, lolx. I had a fitting, a purchase and I had to get shorts for another customer for a custom order. I have the shorts cut and distressed. I will bleach them later on when it cools down. Tomorrow I’m back at it. I have to say thank you to my cousin Sydney. She was the best assistant today. I think I will keep her, lolx.

So what’s the plans for you guys today and tonight? I’m going to watch this SVU marathon(like I haven’t seen every single episode) and kick back. I’m still trying to get my days together, lolx. Comment below any thoughts, love, hate or whatever your heart desires. Til next post ✌duces and 🙏truces!!!
