Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Vinyl Record Bookend

The other day, while aimlessly roaming through the overpriced yet drool-worthy home goods at Urban Outfitters, I came across some adorable vinyl record bookends. They looked so cute hugging a stack of blogs-turned-books on the table and I just needed to have them. I have this problem where my books always tip over on my bookshelf and then it gets all messy and then my studying gets interrupted because I’m OCD…

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Custom Magazine Ad Envelopes

Technology is amazing, we can all attest to that (especially if you’re reading this online on the best website ever. I <3 the Internet.) But technology, has also made things, like the way in which we communicate, a lot less personal.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: T-Shirt Bracelet

If there's one thing all college girls have it's an abundance of drunk selfies t-shirts. Sure, you need a few to sleep in or work out in, but the rest? They're just taking up coveted space in that teeny dorm closet.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Safety Pin Tank

Safety pins are no longer just for those dire emergencies when you’re getting your dance on, trying to get low, and then you split your skirt and need to pin it. (Yes, if you’re wondering, this may have happened to me recently.) Metallic safety pin inspired fashions are all over the runways this season.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: The T-Shirt Scarf

It doesn’t matter if you go to an Ivy League school or a community college, there’s one thing that all colleges have in common and that’s FREE STUFF. Namely, free t-shirts. My dresser is currently overflowing with them (of varying sizes) and there’s no need for all of that cotton getting in the way of the cashmere and the silk.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: On-The-Wall Jewelry Display

If you’re anything like me, you’re a crafty college girl who may or may not have an addiction to jewelry. You also may be a Disney fiend who reads too many gossip magazines... Okay, so even if you’re not like me, you probably still have lots of necklaces and earrings lying around. And you probably have NO place to store them.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Holiday Wrapping Paper

It's gift giving time and that means one thing: you've got a lot of wrapping to do. And if you're anything like me, you're way too cheap to spend money on holiday wrapping paper. Plus, is it really fair to our lovely planet to waste a tree on something that just gets thrown away? I don't think so.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: The Perfect Ruched Headwrap

Hair flair can transform an entire outfit and conceal your unwashed hair on days when you just don’t have time to shower. More importantly, unlike those expensive skinny jeans you picked up at the Nordstrom half-yearly sale, hair flair will always fit regardless of those holiday pounds, the freshmen fifteen, or the beer belly you’ve been sporting since football season.

Do It Yourself Tuesday: Paint Chip Art

We all know that painting the walls in your dorm room is a giant no-no. But that doesn't mean you have to settle for some BS Animal House poster for your wall decor; there is another way to show off your creativity and create a space that is both cool and easy to remove at the end of the year so you can get your security deposit back.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Take the Bored Out Cork Board

A dorm isn't a dorm without the staple brown cork board on the wall. You post reminders of exams, pictures of your friends, phone numbers (of that hottie you just met!), and other important info on your life. Problem is that the ugly brown cork board is a little bored. I know it doesn't match the rest of your gorgeous room decor...

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Tiger Felt Rug

So your dorm room currently sucks. As in, the paint is peeling off the walls, the bed springs squeak every time you turn (and that's when you're alone...), and the whole space smells like the house of that notorious old lady with a gazillion cats. Ok, so we can’t fix those problems (try calling the R.A.), but we can make your room a little bit prettier and a lot bit more comfy!

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Vinyl Wall Art

A few weeks ago, I packed up everything I own into a compact yellow truck and drove halfway across the country to unload it all and dump it in a new place. I started fantasizing about decorating ideas for my new pad long before I got here (like on the million-hour drive), and one of the things I was most into was vinyl wall art.

Now you can bring your own beer in our cute Six Pack Caddy!

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: The T-Shirt Throw Pillow

So, based on my DIY crafting history, it is obvious that I have a lot of t-shirts lying around. A lot. I just can't part with stuff that has so much history. And these t-shirts are all souvenirs from really big moments in my life (except the free credit card tees I get on the way to class - I'm not sure why I haven't gotten rid of those ones yet...)

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: The T-Shirt Tote

Everyone has an old t-shirt (or 40) lying around in the back of their closet that has no chance of being worn again. Not that any of us will ever get rid of them. They have sentimental value! But they are also taking up some much-needed space that would be better utilized for all the new maxi dresses you've been eying.
