What they taught me at school Vs What they should have taught me


What they taught me at school:

Colour in the lines
They really should just let me be creative, it’s called art. Vincent Van Gogh blended colours together.



Made us write cursive
Non cursive writing is so much easier to read. Have you notice some doctors do really messy cursive writing on prescriptions, well a fact is Doctors' sloppy handwriting kills more than 7,000 people annually.




Algebra and Prime Numbers – Algebra was a waste of time and no cares what prime numbers are.



Osmosis- No one has ever asked me anything related to osmosis. WTF even is it?


What they should have taught me at school :

First Aid – Since watching the series of Grey Anatomy I want to be surgeon. It be good if I could save a life over knowing prime numbers

Save More  -I wish I saved much more when I was younger, I could have brought a house from the all my money spent on shopping.



 Always be nice to everyone in high school - You never know who they will become

Top 9 Reasons Why We Love Our Dads

Dads are certainly a special breed, with their questionable dad jokes, DIY inventions and daggy personalities. Here are our most favourite (and funniest) things that only dads do:

1. Crying does not scare them away from amazing photo opportunities

2. They teach us to be competitive at a young age:
 3. They’ll do anything for a laugh (no matter how inappropriate it might be)
4. They invent creative solutions for lazy parents
5. They don’t let their impairments hinder connection with the virtual world
6. They dress us like this:
7. … And make us pose like this:
8. They find innovative ways to stop kids from crying, ie: show them how to take selfies  
9. They’ll do ANYTHING to keep us happy

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all the amazing dads out there, our lives would be dull without you!

Love

Boho-chic

Boho-chic is made for dreamers, free-spirited and those with creative minds. Those who would rather be a flowerchild and wear flowers in their hair than diamonds around their neck. The boho-chic style queens are the obvious Vanessa Hudgens and Nicole Richie, who have effortless boho style. We were inspired by this style, see our outfits below.

Tie-Dye Fun


Who doesn't bright, colourful, tie-dye clothes? They are super fun to make and so simple. Here are three different tie-dye styles.
                                       



The Goodies you need to work your magic:
    • White cotton clothing
    • Rubber bands
    • Rubber gloves
    • Large plastic sealed bags
    • Fabric dye
    • Squirt bottles

Striped Tie-Dye
The striped style tie-dye is really easy and great to show off separate colours

1. Firstly lay your clothing flat, then start folding your piece of clothing into pleats (like making a paper fan) at the way from the top to bottom.





2. Use the rubber bands into separate parts, a couple of centimetres apart will do, but it's totally up to you.


3. Squirt the dye into each section, you can use as many colours as you like. You can go crazy with colours here. Make sure all the white bits are covered.

4. Then let the colour sit in a sealed plastic bag overnight over night (do this with all the tie-dye clothes).



Spiral Effect
This pattern is pretty cool and you can see the pattern instantly.
1. Lay your piece of clothing flat, then pinch your piece of clothing somewhere in the middle and start twisting it

2. You should end up with a twisted shape

3. Carefully place  a few rubber bands around your spiral, make sure they all intersect in the middle, start squirting colours the the sections.




Crumbled

1. Again lay your piece of clothing flat, then start gathering your clothes into random wrinkles towards the middle.


2. Make sure you have lots of wrinkle, random, folds to give the crumble effect. Then use a few rubber bands to hold it together, while you squirt the dye on.





* Rinse and Wash all your tie-dye clothes separately from your normal clothes, then hang to dry.
Have fun with tie-dying. Check out our tie-dye clothes below
