DIY lip balm

When it’s hot and humid, I’m a big believer that the best makeup routine is a bit of mascara and a constantly reapplied sheen of lip balm (although if you want to add in a couple more products, our beauty guru Rachel has some great tips). I’ve never made my own lip balm before, but judging by this recipe, it’s the easiest thing in the world, and also super cheap (one of the ingredients is “a squirt of Kool-Aid”). I think it’s time to whip up a batch for myself. Care to join me? [Style Me Pretty]

Home Inspiration: 10 Crazy Cool Bookshelves

I am of the mind that there is no such thing as an ugly bookshelf. As long as it has books on it, preferably a few old ones that I can open and smell shamelessly, any collection of books — whether messy or organized, displayed on an antique or an IKEA — is beautiful. That being said, there is definitely such a thing as a bookshelf that is even more awesome than usual. I scoured the internet and found 10 examples of not-so-average bookshelves that I want in my house, like, now. Click on the gallery to check ‘em out!

15 Absurdly Awesome DIY Projects That Are Actually Easy

DIY blogs get me every time, because they contain the promise that I can actually do it myself. Hours of clicking on link after link from one lifestyle blog to another will inevitably lead me to a soft-lit, delicate DIY necklace, beguiling in its simplicity, begging to be made. I become convinced that I have a steady hand and clear artistic vision, only to discover the direct opposite when I sit down in front of my neatly -assembled workplace. My hopes, so high and lofty, are stymied by a minor detail, like my household’s lack of an iron, or my inability to find the scissors, and I retreat to the couch and purchase earrings online, while watching “So You Think You Can Dance.” This summer, I’m changing the game and you should too! I’ve combed through the DIY blogosphere to bring you the cutest, awesomest DIY jewelry, home-goods and clothing options. Grab a glue gun and get crafty!
