Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Cheap and Chic Wall Art

’ve finally moved into my new apartment in NYC which is now filled with issues of Elle Décor and House Beautiful. The furniture is moved in (…and up 5 flights of stairs) and my apartment is finally coming together. However, I could not help but feel depressed when I looked at my bare, lonely, and artless walls.

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: 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: 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: 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 Tuesdays: Ettika Neon Bracelets

This season, the fashion world is all about neon and bright colors. Yes, even during the winter. Bright tights under dark skirts, bright purses to add a splash of color to any outfit... I like to think designers like Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg and Christian Siriano are doing their part to put an end to seasonal depression. And I applaud that.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Wine Cork Bulletin Board

For all you organized chicas like me out there, you understand the importance of a bulletin board. You can put up papers and important notes before they get lost in the shuffle on your desk. You can hang your keys on them. Heck, you can plaster them with pictures and have a make-shift frame!

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Leather Huaraches

The summer season is here, and that means the season of sandals! But are you tired of wearing the same Old Navy flip-flops that everyone else has, or are your Rainbows almost worn out to the point of nonexistence? If you have a shoe addiction like I do, these homemade sandals will add a whole new dimension to your shoe closet.

Make Your Own Vision Board!

We’ve all heard of Vision Boards. Whether it be from The Secret, The Oprah Show, or that crazy chick on The Bachelor who went on and on (and on) about hers the first night she met Jason. And then got kicked off. (But don't let her bad luck turn you off; it wasn't the vision board that sent her packing. That bitch was crazy.)
