VOW — In lieu of mother’s day and because my mom is the... Sculptural braided extension cords. I’m constantly getting into silly arguments with my partner about my DIY projects.

I decided on a simple fix. A wrap! Clip Lamp. To begin, tie a square knot at the top of the cord near the fixture leaving a tail of a couple of inches. Wrap the string around the cord 5 or 6 times somewhat loosely. The wrapping takes a while: I did mine over the course of a week or so in the evenings while I watched movies or caught up on tv shows.

Strawberry Vodka and Strawberry Vodka Lemonade. It's so easy to capture a boozy taste of Summer by making your own flavored vodkas.

I used the first strawberries of spring on this round and next I'll make cherry and then raspberry vodkas. Here's how: Fill a quart jar (make 2 jars like I did if you want to end up with a quart of strawberry vodka) with 2 cups of average quality vodka. No need to go top shelf here. Next, put enough clean, hulled strawberries in the jar to reach the top. Screw on the lid, shake a few times and let sit in a cool spot for at least 2 weeks - up to a month. When it's time, and believe me it''s hard to wait even two weeks so it will surprise me if you wait a whole month, strain the liquid into a bowl or jar and squeeze out the strawberries, extracting all the flavor and juice that they have soaked up.

I have never used sea salt spray on my naturally lightly wavy hair in the past, so I'll have to go on Cara's word over at Maskcara on how amazing it is. She has a stunning beauty blog (her eye makeup tutorials are the bomb). Recently she posted a recipe for said sea salt spray, so I had to make it and try it out for myself.

Good golly! I love it! Here's Cara's recipe: 1 Cup WARM water 3 Tablespoons Sea Salt 1 Tablespoon Gel or Spray Gel 1/2 Tablespoon Conditioner (or leave-in) A couple of sprites of your favorite perfume You'll also need an empty spray bottle, save and reuse one you already have! Mix the warm water and salt first and shake well (until all the salt crystals are dissolved).

This week we’re sharing some of the blog’s greatest hits!

These are some of our most loved posts by you, our amazing readers. Don’t throw away those old light bulbs just yet! I have a fun, easy DIY for you that will brighten up your home decor or workspace :) This DIY is very simple, but it requires working with glass so you definitely need to be careful! What you need: A light bulb (any shape or size will work!) , pliers and gardening wire. Step One: First you need to remove the little silver layer on the bottom of the light bulb.

Step Two: Now you have to remove the black cap from the bottom of the light bulb. Step Three: Once the black glass was removed it was really easy to get the little glass tube and wiring on the inside of the bulb out – I simply tapped it with the pliers and it broke right off. And now you have your empty lightbulb! Step Four: Add flowers and water, and hang with the gardening wire!
