African Dashiki Dress to Wrap Skirt

I love wrap skirts and recently had one essentially disintegrate (I wore it too much for many years) and have been trying to replace it. I found a large mu mu like dress with a great pattern at a thrift store and knew that it was destined to be my new favorite wrap skirt. Of course I forgot a before picture but imagine it looked similar to this picture but longer. I've already worn this a lot and am looking forward to ditching the boots and wearing it with sandals. The action picture if from my recent trip to New Orleans where the weather was amazing.

Vodka Soap Dispenser

Sick of your ugly brand name kitchen soap dispenser? Replace it with a liquor bottle! I've done this before with a glass bottle but plastic really does work better. All you need is a plastic liquor bottle and the old lid to your bottle of soap. Drink the liquor (not all at once hopefully) and replace with soap. Easy! I wish they made more liquor bottles plastic as the variety is limited to lower end liqueurs with ugly labels. (I have since replaced the blue soap with clear to make it more realistic looking as vodka.)
