Weekend Project: Whip Up Some Yummy 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…

Weekend Project: Get Soft, Silky Summer Legs

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 i…

Weekend Project: DIY Purse Strap Cushion

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…

Weekend Project: Make Your Own Car Air Freshener

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 ca…

Weekend Project: This Awesome DIY Studded T-Shirt

Have an old T-shirt lying around that could use a makeover? Toughen up that T with this easiest of easy DIYs: all you need is a handful of rivets and a piece of chalk to map out their placement. I’d style up my studded t-shirt with cutoff jeans (always), black ballet flats, and cat eye…

Weekend Project: Organize Your Cluttered Cords

This Weekend Project isn’t so much a project as one-step tip that will help you organize the terrifying jungle of cords that are bundled up behind your desk and TV stand. Collect bread tags and label cords at each end to cut out all that time you spend trying to figure out where in the…

Weekend Project: DIY Shower Stickers

I’m not a big fan of a lot of the text-based decorating trends that Pinterest obsesses over (ahem, “Live, Laugh, Love” wall decals, I’m looking at you), but when I saw these cute DIY shower stickers, I must admit I was thoroughly charmed. I think it’s because, like many people, I do some of my…

Weekend Project: Turn An Old T-Shirt Into A Tote Bag

Earth Day is just around the corner, so in the spirit of recycling (and the start of farmers’ market season!), this weekend seems like the perfect time to dig up an old T-shirt and transform it into an easy-to-pack tote bag. Although I would never defile a Zeppelin t-shirt like they do in the tutorial,…

Weekend Project: Make Some Scrumptious Scrabble Cookies

Guess what? Today is National Scrabble Day! I suggest celebrating by inviting a few friends over for a rousing Scrabble tournament. Munch on these delicious edible scrabble tiles (that are actually Meyer lemon sugar cookies!) while you add up triple word scores and fight over whether “Khaleesi” counts as a proper English word.

Weekend Project: Make Your Own Faux Druzy Necklace

When I saw these awesome faux druzy necklaces that are actually made with little bits of colored glass, my first thought was, “Awesome!” My second thought was that I need to invite Jessica Wakeman, Noted Druzy Jewelry Enthusiast, over to my house to drink wine and listen to Ke$ha and have a DIY necklace-making party.

Weekend Project: Nail Polish Marbled Easter Eggs

I haven’t decorated eggs for the past few Easters, but this tutorial for marbled eggs looks so fun, and the results are so gorgeous, that I might have to give it a shot this year. It’s also a great way to use up some of the hundreds of mostly-empty bottles of nail polish that are…

Weekend Project: S’mores Brownies With Peeps

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Peeps have begun their annual invasion of the grocery store candy aisle. I found a bunch of peeps recipes that involved melting them down into bright blue liquid to stir into popcorn, or heating them up and squashing them between two graham crackers, their drooping beaks peeking out from under…

Weekend Project: A DIY Home Theater For About $5

OK, I know the picture of a cardboard box and the $5 price tag suggest this project is some shoddy workaround along the lines of this DIY hot tub, but I swear it’s actually a really cool tech hack that lets you turn your laptop into a projector. It’s marketed as a fun way to…

Weekend Project: Homemade Pizza Rolls Of Dreams!

Store-bought pizza rolls always sound like such a good idea (pizza in crispy bite-size pouches? What could go wrong?!), but they tend to come with the undesirable side effect of making you feel like you’re gonna die. Whipping up a batch of pizza rolls at home lets you choose your own non-poisonous ingredients, and they’re…

Weekend Project: Polka Dot Your Jeans For Spring!

Polka dot jeans have been popping up on all my favorite fashion blogs and stylish ladies I see on the street, and it’s causing me to have some pretty major polka dot jeans envy. I have a big move coming up, so I’m trying not to buy too many new clothes. What’s a trend-obsessed girl…

Weekend Project: DIY Galaxy Print Sneakers

This week included a meteorite entering the atmosphere over Russia and a close call between Earth and an asteroid the size of a football field. Scary, right? You could spend the weekend putting the finishing touches on your underground survival bunker, or you could channel all your intergalactic energy into DIY-ing a pair of sweet
