Spray Painted Flats!

Hey guys a few months ago I bought an awesome cream colored dress. I really wanted to accessorize them with red. I searched high and low for the perfect red flats and failed. So I purchased some extremely comfy black flats for $11.00 and a can of red spray paint and went to work. 

I guess that this technically isn't spray paint it is floral spray. 
It worked well enough though! 

Stuff some news paper inside of your flats and tape off any portion that you may not want painted. 

Hold the can several inches away form the shoes and spray lightly. Let each coat dry COMPLETELY before applying the next coat. Reapeat until you get the look you want. 

Let dry for a few day (just incase). 

Then ROCK your new shoes!!! 

A few tips, I would use an older pair of flats some that are well worn. I feel like my shoes lost a lot of flexibility after I sprayed them. I would also use a canvas like material. 

I'd love to see pictures if anyone tries this!!!

Space Monkey Shakes

So in my last post I told you guys that back in January we visited Walt Disney World. While we were there we dined at the Scifi Cafe. It is themed like a drive in and is beyond awesome.  As a little treat we ordered Space Monkey Shakes they are basically a chocolate banana shake with banana rum in them! When we got home we attempted to make our own. Here is a how to!

you need one banana per shake! 

Two big big scoops of ice-cream.

chop up the banana so it all fits! 

start with one shot per shake and add more if necessary. 

blend it all up!

Top it off with some whip cream and enjoy! 

These are seriously delicious and have quickly become a house hold favorite, just in time for warmer weather!
