Catherine’s back with a DIY Workout Shirt tutorial:: Fashion Friday!

Happy Fashion Friday!
I have a super fun arts and crafts project for my beautiful little bunnies to try over the holiday weekend!

I love buying new clothes, but sometimes I love making them even more!
I started college as a fashion design major, so I have always been a little crafty when it comes to recycling old T-shirts. This has to be my new favorite DIY reclaimed shirt. You can wear this casual racerback to your workout and then dress it up with a lacy bandeau when you meet your friends for some rabbit food afterwards. Turn your basic into a chic little number and go hit the gym like you own it!

DIY Workout Shirt
Makes 1 sexy little tank

1 old T-shirt
1 pair of scissors
20 minutes

1. Start with a pre-washed T-shirt. Any old shirt will do! The bigger the better.

2. Cut away the ribbed neckline and bottom hem. For the sleeves, cut downwards starting from the shoulder, determining how thick you want your straps. Cut straight down and then begin to curve down below the armpit seam.

3. Determine how low you want your front neckline, and cut away.

4. Flip the shirt over and make a narrow racerback, curving inward from the armpits.  Then cut a deep “V” shape from the top neckline.

5. Using the excess bottom hemline, stretch it out until it becomes one long string of fabric. Knot the string a couple of inches above the bottom of the “V” shape.

6. Wrap the string all the way down around the center of the racerback, and back up to meet the other ends. Knot the ends together tightly. Trim the loose ends.

7. To give your tank a high-low look, lay your shirt sideways, flattening it out evenly. Starting a few inches up at the front of your shirt, start cutting diagonally until you reach the back.

Throw it on with some cute yogis, grab your water, and hit the gym!
Post or email your photos if you make a shirt! I can’t wait to see your creations!

I’ve been asked lately about some of my favorite products that my company produces. And so, I decided that little by little I wanted to begin sharing them with you all here on the blog. My favorite product line by far is called ageLOC. The name is so perfect.

This premier anti-aging line of products is taking the world by storm. People are becoming more aware of how their skin ages, everyday. And some would ask, “But Mariah, you’re in your twenties, why on earth do you need anti-aging?” And this is my answer.

While I realize that being 28 years old does not qualify me to be concerned about aging, I am concerned about the amount of damage control I will have to do in the future. I’ve decided to make smarter choices NOW, so that years from now- I won’t have to try and back peddle. AgeLoc is my (not so secret) secret weapon. I use this in conjunction with my Galvanic Spa (blog post coming soon on that baby, she gets her own spotlight) and I LOVE my skin. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. You will love it too! Remember that these products are backed by science. Only the best ingredients are used to formulate the most luxurious products you’ve ever owned. Read below to find out more. And then, because I know you will want to, please contact me for more information about becoming a customer.

Will run for FOOD

RUNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGG. I used to seriously hate the word. Promise.
