Isn’t it annoying when your favorite shorts got damaged/stained? VERY ANNOYING. But in my case, it was my brother’s shorts that got damaged so I didn’t panic. In fact, I am very very happy that it got stained in the laundry. Lol. *insert evil sister laugh here*. I really want that shorts of his. See the pink spots? I did a little makeover by ripping it. Tutorial below!
In ripping the shorts, you’ll need: 1. Scissors | 2.Cuticle Pusher | 3. Emery Board
Here are the steps (full description of each number below):
- Basically, I cut the shorts first since it’s a bit lengthy. You should also consider the style. Decide on how do you want your shorts to be ripped. You could research or use your imagination.
- Cut it! Be careful when cutting. You could draw some lines if you’re not sure with your cutting skills :p
- If you are a first timer, I suggest that you should cut a small section inside first.
- Distressing makes it easier for you to pull the threads out.
- Threads are much visible when you reverse your shorts inside out.
- Pulling the threads could take a little longer but when you got the steps, everything will be easy.
Here’s my finished product! It took me a lot of patience. Haha. But for the sake of customizing my brother’s damaged shorts, I worked hard and put in my best effort :p
Since the shorts still have visible stains, I decided to bleach it. I sprayed some Clorox to the damaged areas then I left the bleach solution for about 30 minutes. Then ta-da! It turned out so well. And don’t forget to wash it before wearing! I can’t wait to rock my DIY ripped/acid wash shorts! :)

Random thoughts are running through my mind right now which is pretty normal to me. I was staring at my photos, thinking of something. I was reminiscing at the same time. I can’t believe I’m no longer a teen anymore and yes, it hasn’t sunk in me yet. I still feel like a 16-year old high school, enjoying my teenage life. I suddenly missed my teenage years and my childhood years too. There comes a point in our lives when we realize that real life hasn’t started yet. When were kids, we thought we knew what we want to be when we grow up; but when the time comes that we need to face the real world, we don’t know where we want to be, we don’t know what we want to do. From “When I grow up, I want to be…” to “What do I really want to be?”, from dreams to reality. To tell you honestly, I still don’t know where would I be 5 years from now. I can’t see myself anywhere and that disappoints me. The thing is, sometimes, we chill too much to the point that we tend to forget that we’re growing up. Sooner or later, we will face the real world and we have to manage our own lives. We have to walk in the path that’s aligned with our own desires. We shouldn’t be afraid of switching paths, of making wrong decisions because sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. We have to fail so we could learn how to stand up. If you’re experiencing the same dilemma as mine, we don’t have to pressure ourselves. Let’s take it easy. Of course, the future is very important, but the more we overthink, the less we can decide on what we really want to do. However good or bad our situations are now, it will change. Life is fun, let’s enjoy it while we’re young! Always remember that there’s always a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, keep walking :)
My mom took that photo above! Cool!
Sun-kissed kiddos :)
That was me and my brother trying out one of the slides.
Now, that’s me and my cousin. I love the splash shot!
It was hotter in Milan than here in Bologna, but the weather wasn’t good earlier that day. Still, we pushed through the outing since it was already planned and we want to dip our feet in the water. Yihee! Good thing the sun came out by afternoon. It was a wonderful and relaxing day. Waterpark was uncrowded that day so my brother and I had a chance to use the slides nonstop. Ahhhhhh those roller coaster slides!!! Sorry, I still can’t get over. Waterpark is a wonderful oasis to spend a day. The place was also surrounded by white sand and palm trees. It makes me feel like I’m at the beach. Swimming is my favorite summer activity so I didn’t bother the sun kissing my skin. In fact, my brother and I sunbathed without sunblock on. Seriously. My mom forgot to buy sunscreen and my aunt forgot to bring hers. Haha. We don’t care though :p Watch our Waterpark adventure video below. Enjoy :)
Peach Sushi Roll
Scrambled Egg, Crab Meat & Cucumber Sushi Roll (others were topped with mayo)
I’ve been craving for sushi since last month, I guess? The last time I ate sushi was last March when I had a vacation in the Philippines. I know, right? It’s been a long time. And again, if you’re following me on Instagram or Twitter, you knew that we made sushi rolls yesterday. Scratch ‘
we’ because my aunt did it herself. I just took the photos for this blog. And of course, EAT!!! Obviously, I have the biggest contribution. Hahaha! She made three different kinds of sushi rolls as captioned above. They taste really good with Kikkoman soy sauce! You could try making your own. Just visit YouTube for the recipe and procedures! So that’s it for now. I really have to pack my things. Toodles!!! Till next week!
P.S. I’m currently snacking sushi right now :p
