signature COLORS: VALENTINE'S DAY As a single girl, I look to Valentine's Day this year for a release of "cheesy" energy. Sometimes you just want to be a dork.

Hanging Chains Headband DIY « THE YESSTYLIST – Asian Fashion Blog – brought to you by While browsing Topshop last week, I came across this fun hanging chains headband and thought that with Coachella right around the corner, an easy DIY for something similar would be fun. I used an old plastic zig zag stretch comb headband I’ve had for years because it was the most logical choice to hang chains from but you can use an elastic band in a similar way. The chains disappear a little in my blonde hair but they would stand out nicely against brunette locks {they would also look great on a shorter cut as well}. If you’re super crafty, add a feather or bead/charm to the bottom of a few chains. What You’ll Need… * Circular headband * Chains: fine, thick, gold, silver, rose gold… use a variety of colors and sizes or all the same… choose chains that are lighter in weight. * Jump rings {for small chains only} * Beading pliers Steps… * Prepare your chains. * Using the extra loose chain links or jump rings for small chains, attach one chain to each section of your plastic headband. Voila!

DIY Marbled Glassware When graphic designer and artist Joanna Bean Martin shared with us her technique for marbling the bottoms of glassware with nail polish, we couldn’t wait to try it ourselves. Who knew it would be such an easy way to add color and pattern to your next tablescape or party? Remember, the brighter and bolder colors you use, the more the glasses will radiate and glow. Have fun! You’ll need:flat bottomed glasswarevariety of colorful nail polishclear nail polisha disposable plastic containernail polish removerpainters tapetoothpicks Mask off the bottom of the glass with painters tape. Fill a disposable, plastic container with water. Layer the colors one on top of the other. Submerge the bottom of the glass into the polish. Allow to dry completely before applying a layer of clear polish. Once everything has dried, remove the painters tape and touch up with nail polish remover and a cotton swab. Your glowing glasses are finished! Bottoms up!

One Step Forward: A Strong Vocabulary Equals Safer Insults Let us consider the ways that you can insult and confuse people at the same time. Having a strong vocabulary means that you have more than one word at your disposal for just such moments as those when you wish to really put someone down properly. Try some of these alternatives: Call your brother-in-law a bromidic addle-pate instead of boring dolt. He might be flattered, or he might have (very well) hidden depths. Describe that flaky co-worker as abstracted, pedomorphic, and peurile rather than stupid, childish, and thoughtless. Your parents might prefer obdurate and peremptory over opinionated and imperious. Discuss your unfortunate cousin using the word “maladroit” instead of “socially backward”. Achieve the proper level of sophisticated disdain by telling the host that you are leaving the party because it has become jejune. Explain to your ex-whatever that things didn't work out because you couldn't be with an insipid laggard.

solid perfume pocket watch locket 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. The old pocket watch appeals to my tomboy side, and I love its versatility; you can wear it as a necklace or pin, or simply tuck it into your pocket or purse. I can’t wait to make one and give my feminine sensibilities a little boost :) Thanks for sharing this tutorial with us, Mandy! Read the full how-to after the jump! Creating your own solid perfume is extremely satisfying. Materials Instructions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Up do UK based online retailer of American Candy, Groceries & Soda. Largest selection in the UK! Comment connaitre son type de peau? Dans le précédent article de la gazette (cliquez ici), je vous ai indiqué qu’il fallait utiliser les bons produits en fonction de son type de peau pour avoir une belle peau. Or, comment vraiment connaître son type de peau ? Déjà il faut savoir que notre peau elle vit, elle évolue et change tout au cours de notre vie. Il est donc assez difficile de définir notre type de peau car il évolue en fonction de l’âge, les hormones, le climat, les agressions extérieures, le style de vie, le tabac, la pollution, la climatisation, le chauffage... La peau normale : type de peau douce, lisse et uniforme sans imperfections. Conseil : continuer à bien l’hydrater et remercier Dieu tous les soirs de vous avoir donné une peau parfaite. La peau sèche : type de peau fragile et teint clair qui manque souvent d’éclat. Conseil : Hydrater et nourrir sa peau La Peau grasse : type de peau brouillé, terne, plus ou moins brillant et luisant au toucher sur tout le visage. Résultat du test :

Homemade deodorant with coconut oil Ditch the TV. Check. Make my own toothpaste. Check. Go poo-free. Next on the list: make my own deodorant…and not be smelly. Well, the recipe below is a winner. It takes a little bit of getting used to the application process, but it totally works. The less chemicals I put in and around my body, the better chance I have to be doing cartwheels around the grandkids someday. Simple living takes baby steps. Wanna join me on the hippie bandwagon? ingredients 1/3 c. baking soda 1/2 c. arrowroot powder 5 tbs unrefined coconut oil 15 drops of grapefruit essential oil directions 1. application This part is all personal preference. I recently had a deodorant-making party and our first batch turned out very oily (I called it soupy). *Update (9/17/12): The original recipe used 1/3 cup arrowroot, but I recently upped it to 1/2 cup and like it a lot more. I use coconut oil on my face, for baking muffins, for toothpaste, deep conditioning treatments, and so much more. You can read all about it here.
