Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Home is Where the Art Is

When it comes to interior decorating, I am all about making the living space feel as comfortable and homey as possible. Despite my love for modern furniture and glam decorating, I still want warm colors, photos of family and friends, and seasonal smelly candles around to remind me of home.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: Paint-splatter Boyfriend Trousers

When I need some serious design inspiration, I usually look to designers and runway trends. I get a sense of accomplishment after I imitate something I can’t afford and it comes out looking runway worthy itself.

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: Dress Form Display Piece

I’m officially a college graduate and am joining the masses of recent grads sobbing audibly as they scroll through their Facebook photos from the past 4 years moving to a new city and a new life. As I pack up my boxes once again, I’ve realized that my college dorm décor may not exactly suit for the real world.

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: Cuffed Boyfriend Blazer

Whether worn over a cute spring dress or paired with skinny jeans, the basic boyfriend blazer is a must-have for every woman’s closet. Now don’t get me wrong, I obviously love me a basic black boyfriend blazer (say that five times fast… I dare you), but it can also look pretty boring and plain.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: Rhinestone Bobby Pins

If you’ve read any of my DIY columns, then you probably know I’m completely in love with hair flair! I love a good headband, head-wrap, and now I’m really into adding some bling to spice up a normal hair day. And although I love a bold hair flair statement, I also like elegant and simple hair accessories, too, like sequined and rhinestone bobby pins.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Oreo Truffles

OK, so we've only got 5 days until Valentine's Day. And that means 5 days until you are inundated with cards, candies and treats.... and you still have nothing to give anyone else.

Do-It-Yourself-Tuesdays: MJ Inspired Embellished T-Shirt

Right now everyone is re-thinking and re-styling 80s trends and glam rock. Neon is everywhere; you can’t go anywhere without seeing leather leggings; embellished boots have made a kick-ass comeback; and my ultimate favorite, embellished Michael Jackson inspired t-shirts, can make any girl feel like a smooth criminal (OK, so not actually a criminal, but they will make you feel pretty bad ass).

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: Wine Glass Rings

Let's be honest: we college girls do most of our drinking out of red plastic cups. It might get the job done (and it's usually free), but it's far from classy. And sometimes we all need to be a little classy. If you're looking to add some class to your weekly routine, consider having the girls over for some wine and cheese.
