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: 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: 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: Hanging Picture Frame

My room has always been covered with the pictures I've taken, a visual documentary of my life displayed around my room on a cork board and on the walls. But instead of tacking photos to the wall or searching for the perfect picture frames (which happen to be really pricey), here's a creative, easy, and cheap way to make ahanging frame of your own.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Stained-Glass Cookies

Whether you leave cookies out for Santa or just like the excuse to indulge in the sweets this time of year, it's time to stop making the slice-and-bake BS and get a little fancy.

Your Do-It-Yourself Holiday Gift Guide

I don't know about you, but this year I'm in serious money-saving mode. As much as I'd love to go buy my biffies matching pairs of Alexander McQueen's 10-inch Alien Heels, college girls don't have tons of moolah to buy the most fabulous gifts out there.
