I’ve been wearing denim cutoffs nonstop for the past couple months, and I love it (my ideal summer outfit is basically a Never Nude costume), but sometimes I look down and notice my legs are a bit … less than luminous. This weekend I’m really excited to try this DIY silky legs scrub, which is made of super cheap ingredients you probably already have around your house — sugar, lemon juice, and oil. The result? Legs that are soft, smooth, and ready to show off. [Krysta's Life In Food]

9 Pinterest Wedding DIYs You Can Repurpose For Real Life

As a happily single lady, Pinterest can leave me feeling a little, well, left out. Amongst the $700 heels I lust after from afar and that spaetzle recipe I swear I’l get around to making, there’s one major recurring ┬átheme that has nothing to do with me at all: WEDDINGS!

Wedding dresses. Wedding updos. Wedding invitations. Wedding cakes. Wedding bouquets. Wedding place settings. Wedding shoes. Wedding makeup. Wedding floral arrangements. Wedding photos. It feels like an alternate universe and my (calligraphied, duh) invitation to visit is lost in the mail. But I look. Oh, yeah. I look. And I repin roaring ’20s style gowns and bouquets of purple roses, too. (Not in a scary “she doesn’t even have a boyfriend but she’s planned her whole wedding” way, I promise!)

And it’s come to my attention that there are a lot of wedding DIYs on Pinterest that are “wedding” in name only. I’ve gathered up a few that are perfect for Sunday brunch or a walk down the aisle. Help keep the mason jar industry in business!

As I learned this past weekend, nothing makes you as keenly aware of thin, uncomfortable purse straps like a nasty sunburn on your shoulder. I love my bag, but damn, those skinny straps have got to go. This morning I stumbled across an easy (and super cute!) solution: this DIY purse strap cushion tutorial. All you need is a little scrap of cardboard and a bit of lace to make any bag instantly more wearable. Your shoulders will thank you. [Making Life Beautiful]

So you guys may remember The Ugly Desk, which I bought on a whim and de-uglified with a couple coats of teal paint. Ready for part two of the saga? The Ugly Desk came with an Ugly Chair, pictured above. This chair might actually be uglier than the desk — the style and fabric are very mid-90s accounting firm conference room, which is not exactly the vibe I go for in my home decorating scheme. I’ve kept it this long because it’s surprisingly comfy and a good height for the desk. So here’s my question: is this chair worth an attempted makeover? I was thinking of trying to recover the seat and back with a cute fabric (maybe polka dots?), and I could even spray paint the legs and armrests if I was feeling really crafty. Keep reading »

Embarking on a Memorial Day road trip this weekend? All those sweaty passengers and pungent snack foods make for a fun journey, but they can also leave your car smelling … not so fresh. Instead of buying a new air freshener, try making your own eco-friendly version using wool felt and essential oils. You can customize the scent and shape to your liking, and when it loses its potency, it’s totally reusable — just add more oil! [Crafting A Green World]
