A Little Financial Advice for My Fellow Students

Today I’d like to take a moment to talk about something that is near and dear to my heart: money. Nah, I’m just kidding with you all, but I do want to share a bit of hard-learned knowledge about how to finance your educational/career dreams with what is (basically) free money.

Aurèlie Bidermann Look-alike Bracelet

Aurèlie Bidermann Look-alike Bracelet

While doing a little online shopping for things I won’t be able to afford for at least the next ten years, I came across this lovely bracelet (pictured below) that I absolutely had to have. The problem is it costs about a quarter’s worth of textbooks. Or 81 grande caramel frappucinos. Yeah no thanks – I’ll take the coffee.

Glitter Project Round-up

My post on DIY Glitter Phone Chargers received such a huge response from my fellow glitterholics that I decided this week's round up should feature other fun glitter projects. Enjoy!

Butterfly Wall Decor

Butterfly Wall Art

Winter is, as always, dragging on, and I thought it would be fun to bring a little spring into your lives this week. I originally made these 3D butterflies to decorate my college dorm room, but I think they’d look equally cute in a nursery, little girl’s room, or kitchen. They can even be ramped up for an office space or adult bedroom by using solid greys, blues, purples, and metallic silvers.

Succulent Project Round-up

As anyone who has followed me on Pinterest is beginning to discover, I love succulents (which may actually be an understatement). As spring approaches, I'll hopefully be able to share three of my own succulent projects, but in the meantime, I've rounded up a collection of really fun succulent projects. Happy crafting!

Glitter Phone Charger

DIY Glitter Phone Charger

In an effort to satisfy my love for glitter, this week’s tutorial will be on glitter phone chargers!  I’m in love with all things glitter, and while I know there are already several videos and blogs online, I wanted to take things one step further by incorporating a few of the currently trending patterns. In the post that follows, I’ll show you have to do chevron and ombre patterned glitter chargers, and at the end, you’ll be given the opportunity to win a Phillip Lim inspired micro usb charger made by yours truly. Happy crafting!

Valentine's Day Cards

I love the entire institution of Valentine’s Day, and while I usually give out some type of candy, I also like to have something sweetly homemade on hand for my family and friends who are avoiding sugar. Once you’ve got the process down, it’ll only take a few minutes to whip out each card, and the time spent will be well worth the results. Happy Valentine’s Day!
