Pinterest, A Penny Saver [Budget Stylista]

Ah, the wonderful world of Pinterest. A magical social networking site that intrigues you to bake numerous desserts, workout like a fiend, plan your entire wedding, try a new braid in your hair, go “awww!” over adorable pictures of puppies in clothes, and one of my favorites, complete DIY crafts. Pinterest is fantastic for bloggers, bored people at work, and most importantly: college girls.  Though I can’t help but pin almost everything that involves crafts or clothes, I’m often disappointed after clicking the link and realizing those adorable dip-dyed shorts are $75, or that awesome craft needs $45 worth of supplies. For some spring projects and looks at an affordable price, peek at some pinteresting things below!

Reinventing Your Wardrobe

For a trendy spring look, refresh some of those old t-shirts by creating a fitted tank. Simply cut as seen below and tie the other side resulting in an incredibly adorable racer-back tank. Virtually costs nothing, just a tee!

Hair Trends

No need to invest in the newest, hottest curling iron from Sephora this spring! Give your hair and wallet a break by snipping off the tip of an old sock to create the sock bun.

As your summer break consists of internships, part-time jobs and bonfires with the girls, staying organized with plans is clutch. A small price of $2 will purchase some post it notes and tape to create a colorful, decorative organizer.
