Try as I might, I cannot seem to grasp even the most basic of feminine beauty rituals. I’m constantly struggling to master rudimentary hair and makeup techniques, and my one-time foray into the “subtle” art of perfume left everyone in the room with burning nostrils. This DIY solid perfume locket from artisanal perfumer Mandy Aftel is something I can definitely stand behind, though. Mandy only uses pure and natural ingredients to create her perfumes, and this solid scent can be easily applied with no risk of over-dousing.
I just about died when I figured out this hairstyle. Have you guys seen the celtic knot headbands? They are kind of adorable. I was attempting to make one for Savy out of an old T-shirt and I thought... this would be so cute as a hairstyle! Lightbulb.
Okay so, everybody loves Nutella. It's a universal fact. I thought I was the exception to this rule until I was about 19 years old when a random series of events resulted in me eating a whole jar with tiny teddy's as 'spoons'. Good times.

Update 7/23/12: Hey guys! I wrote this post in February of 2011 and since then I’ve discovered lots more awesome DIY blogs! Either there are tons of new ones popping up or I didn’t even know how much great stuff was out there.
Homemade Fizzy Fun Last week I brought home some pomegranate molasses for a recipe. After using it for its intended purpose, I took a little taste of the molasses - and it delivered a very intense flavor sensation. On a whim, I put some ice in a tall glass, poured in a tablespoon or so of the pomegranate molasses, then poured some cold seltzer over it. Instant homemade soda! Not only was it a beautiful color, it was delicious - and healthier than regular pop.
did you all have a good weekend? we pretty much got snowed in so during nap time I thought i'd scratch this little diy off my to-do list... This was the inspiration for this diy. i've had it pinned on pinterest for an eternity. so when I came across $3 sweatshirts at wal-mart the other day i felt like it was just meant to be. i resisted grabbing more than two (i am so bad when it comes to good deals) brought them home and gave them both a good wash and dry. the other one is white and i already have something in mind for it...

Happy Happy Wednesday to you! Today I’m sharing a quick craft tip that I use all.the.time. Its been talked about on CA’s Facebook page a few times and is very helpful. I’m all about helping enable crafters and helping others, so I thought it would be fun to have a discussion on here about crafting tips and tricks.
Recruit your husband! Not joking. Step Two: Assemble the main frame of your pipe, leaving one side open so that you can slide your would drying rack frame onto the pipe. Step Three: Assemble your wood frame. We had ours cut to size right at the hardware, then came home and used wood glue and nails (the longer and thinner the nail, the less likely you will be to split the wood) and secure the 4 corners, making a frame. Before your last two corner are put into place, you will want to measure out each spot for your dowels and use a wood drill bit the size of your dowel to make holes.

I have dyed green stripes in my hair right now, but I’m seriously considering temporarily adding a few new colors with this hair chalking video tutorial from Kandee Johnson! Get ready to paint the town, I mean, your hair red….green, hot pink, or any color you like.
I love the look of the cut out shoulder blouse and coincidentally I have a shirt that I don't wear anymore... So I revamped it! Here are the steps: 1. You need a shirt, a fabric marker, a pair of scissors and a sewing machine. 2.
A food blogger with a picky eater for a son is such a travesty isn’t it? Cooper is a very visual kid and he has a lot of distrust when it comes to food. For example, he loves red peppers, but if you try to mix things up and cut a red pepper into chunks instead of strips, he will not put the red pepper in his mouth. We also go through crazy power trips where one week he loves something and the next he’s over it. I know it’s totally normal, but gosh darn it’s frustrating when I make something special and he won’t eat it. Can you even believe he wouldn’t try a bite of my mom’s sour cream coffee cake ?
I've always loved the hand harness but I can never find one that properly fits me... So I made my own! People say you can accomplish a lot when you put your mind into it, but I say you can accomplish even more when your boyfriend is out of town.
Earlier this year, I had my eye on a scarf from We Are Owls . It was cashmere, hand-painted, and gorgeous. But also more than I was willing to shell out for a scarf.
