If you can’t afford to splash out on a portable air-conditioner, this dude Geoff made one using a fan, a garbage bin and some lengths of copper and vinyl piping. Not the most aesthetically pleasing addition to your house, but if it’s meltingly hot and humid inside, are you complaining?
Basically we just wrote that because it is funny to imagine MacGyver concerning himself with whether or not someone’s bra straps are visible under a racer-back top. This one, as they say, is for da ladies.
To turn any bra into a racer-back bra, you will need a rubber band or a hair elastic (ideally, in a similar colour to your skin) and two safety pins. Loosen the bra straps maybe an inch more than usual. Lay the bra backwards on a flat surface and hook the opened safety pins around the straps. (Do not pierce the strap elastic.) Hook your rubber band between the pins and fasten them.
To put the bra on, slip it over your head before slipping your arms through the straps. Lean forward so your tits fall into the cups (which is how you should always put a bra on anyway) and then fasten in the back.
Put your racer-back top on. At this point you can adjust the cinching band up or down.
Basically, just hit up your local plumbing store for some pipes and fittings, a sheet of plywood and some castors, then put it together and paint it a jaunty colour. Full instructions here.
We’d use three pipes the same length in order to get more hanging space. Another good tip – insert a length of broomstick or dowel inside the horizontal pipe so that it doesn’t bend from too many/too heavy clothes.
Might work out a bit more expensive than IKEA but it looks better, you can customise the height and length, plus we don’t know about you but our IKEA rack always used to list to one side, which was hella annoying.
““For roughly two decades, from 1904 until the early 1920s, Eva Tanguay was the biggest rock star in the United States. To call Tanguay a “rock star” is anachronistic but appropriate. She was not just the pre-eminent song-and-dance woman of the vaudeville era. (One of her many nicknames was “The Girl Who Made Vaudeville Famous.”) She was the first American popular musician to achieve mass-media celebrity, with a cadre of publicists trumpeting her on- and offstage successes and outrages, and an oeuvre best summed up by the slogan that appeared frequently on theatrical marquees: “Eva Tanguay, performing songs about herself.”“”—
Pretty simple, really – just melt beeswax and unscented vegetable oil together in a double boiler, add drops of essential oil, and pour the liquid into small containers such as old lip balm jars, tiny tins and even rings or lockets.
You’d have to be careful, though, to pick essential oils that didn’t make you smell like either a foodstuff or a damned hippie.
However, this makes us nostalgic for being a teenager and first discovering the Body Shop’s perfume oils. VIVE LA DEWBERRY.
