I’ve never really been one to spend too much time on my hair, but lately I’ve gotten the itch. Take a look at these completely amazing hairstyle tutorials that will have your locks going from flat to fab fast. Va-va-voom.

 

Never quite sure if you can pull off the braided headband look? This tutorial from Latest Hairstyles will get you on track. This style is perfect for a day in or a night out!

 

 

I love the simple look of this twisted crown tutorial from Twist Me Pretty. The best part? This style only takes 10 minutes.

 

 

For those of us with longer hair, look at this boho side-braid tutorial from The Wonder Forest. I’m having some major hair envy right now.

 

 

If up-do’s are more your style, try this classic bun from Style Studio. This look is so chic you’ll be turning heads all day long.

 

 

And lastly, next time you need something elegant but simple, try this fancy up-do from The Beauty Department. Perfect for spring, weddings, and spring weddings, this hairstyle is simply adorable.

 

 

And there you go. Until next week, Style Spotters!

Spring is right around the corner! It won’t be much longer before we’re all outside, soaking up some sunshine and playing in the sand. For the few weeks of dreariness we have left, brighten things up with an at-home mani pedi. Show off some adorably painted fingers and toes this spring with these cute ideas!

 

If dark is your color, add some sparkle with this silver line nail art from Styles Time. I love the classic look mixed with a modern spin.

 

 

I love the minimalist look of this white nail with black tips I found on We Heart It. This design is perfect for any occasion, whether it’s for a glamorous night out or a day at home.

 

 

Want some more spunk? Take a look at these cuties–polka dotted chaos from Beauty High. I can’t get over how simple and colorful this style is!

 

 

I’ve always wanted to try a reverse french tip. For a good tutorial, look no further than this blue and gold beauty from The Lacquer Log. Simple and elegant, this color palette makes for timeless sophistication.

 

 

And now for my favorite: I am absolutely in love with this silver and gold style on Lulu’s. Classy but fun, this look just screams summer!

 

 

See you back here next week!

February! It’s that time of year again, folks. Amid all the flowers, fancy dinner dates, candy hearts and cards, it’s easy to get lost in the formalities of Valentine’s Day–and forget that the best way to spend it is loving on all those special people in your life. To help you celebrate, I found some awesome DIY ideas to make this year’s day of love the sweetest one yet.

 

As a hopeless romantic, I actually love reading through all of the cheesy Hallmark cards. Even so, I can never seem to find the perfect one. This year, stop worrying about finding a card that encapsulates all you want to say to your special someone–make your own instead. Look at these cute DIY card ideas from Delightfully, Kristi for some inspiration!

 

 

If you don’t have an artistic bone in your body (let’s face it, most of us don’t), look no further. These adorable Valentine’s Day card downloads from Camille Styles will do the trick!

 

 

If you want to spruce up your space this Valentine’s Day, take a look at this gorgeous star burst wall art from Lia Griffith. Super easy, super chic, and pretty enough to keep up all year if you want, this bright addition is sure to surprise your sweetie!

 

 

I know we’re six days into February, but it’s not too late to make this adorable ombré heart calendar from Me And My DIY. If you’ve got an extra hour or two this weekend, give it a try!

 

 

And finally, finding the perfect gift for your special someone is only half the battle–add a whole new “WOW” factor with these DIY gift wrap tutorials I found on The House That Lars Built. Love, love, love it!

 

 

Enjoy the week! If you try any of these cuties, I’d love to hear how they turn out!

I’ve always been useless when it came to quick sewing fixes for my overflowing closet–I can sew sloppy, haphazard stitches and that’s about it. With winter transitioning into spring in the next few months, I pulled together some cute spring sewing tutorials to help you look fabulous–and keep some money in your pocket doing it.

 

I am absolutely in love with this adorable color block tank dress on Sweet Verbena. Worn by itself, or paired with a cute cardigan and some strappy heels, this cute outfit will turn heads wherever you go!

 

 

I never really understood why people put buttons on the backs of shirts–but I still can’t get enough of the look! Learn how to make your own buttoned boxy top on Cotton and Curls for this classic look.

 

 

Remember that cardigan I mentioned earlier? Take a look at this sequin cardi DIY I found on Me Sew Crazy. If you visit the blog often, you know I have an affinity for anything sparkly. The best part? You can pair this jazzy jacket with jeans, dresses and everything in between.

 

 

Let’s face it–leggings are in the for the long haul. Give your legs some extra love with this grown-up legging tutorial on I Still Love You. While horizontal stripes look good on a select few, the rest of us can experiment with whatever neutral or crazy patterns we please!

 

 

And lastly, look at this sophisticated peplum mini on Mimi G. Style. Dress up a pair of jeans (or those leggings you just learned how to make) with this chic look!

 

 

Good luck and happy sewing!

Hello Style Spotters! Vacation is over, but I’m excited to be back sharing the best of the Internet with you all again! I hope the holiday craziness was all worth it–family, friends, fun–all that good stuff. I’m still wrapped up in the glitter and glam of the new year, so today’s post is my last homage to all things sparkly and girly for 2014.

 

I love, love, love this wallpaper tutorial I found on Dream Green DIY. Not only is the gold pattern everything I’ve ever wanted on my walls, wallpapering so much easier than you’d think.

 

 

If you got some wine glasses over the holidays that you want to spice up a little bit, try this speckled glass DIY I stumbled across on I Spy DIY. Pick some of your favorite colors for a set that screams stylish.

 

 

Vintage lace looks to be all the rage this year (I never understood who decides what’s “in” at any particular time–sounds stressful). Get a head start on the trend with this lace doily table runner from The Sweet Escape for decorations that are guaranteed to impress.

 

 

I always seem to accumulate a ton of candles this time of year. Make some awesome marbled votive cups with this tutorial from Lovely Indeed to add even more brightness to your home this winter.

 

 

And lastly, if you’re looking to find that finishing touch to a new outfit, take a peek at this cute DIY bow belt I spotted on Momtastic DIY. Make one or five or ten–just in case. Options are always nice.

 

 

And there you have it. Until next week!

Hello Style Spotters! I hope the holiday season is in full swing for you all, and that you’ve got time planned to spend with family and friends! If you’re like me, you haven’t even started thinking about gifts or decorating or all those holiday shenanigans yet–and that’s ok. I’ve pulled together a few last-minute options for you to take a look at.

 

I love this simple copper card tree holder tutorial from The Nest. It’s perfect for showing off all the cute cards you receive this holiday season while adding extra Christmas cheer to your home at the same time.

 

 

Want a new way to wrap all those presents? Take a look at these cute DIY wrapping paper ideas from Hello Natural. What a fun way to add a little homemade flair to an already awesome gift.

 

 

I have a horrible track record with mittens. It seems like the day after I get them, they get lost. For the mitten-losers out there, try this adorable sew-your-own tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. Find an old sweater and start sewing! Hopefully you won’t lose your handiwork (Terrible pun intended. Bear with me).

 

 

Last minute holiday party? Look no further. Try this awesome Colorful DIY Christmas Party guide from Paper & Stitch. Go wild with bright colors or tame with more traditional red’s and green’s. Either way, you’ll have a room your guests will be sure to remember!

 

 

And looking for that last-minute hostess gift? Try these etched wooden spoons from Design Mom to help them cook with style. Cheap, easy and fun, whoever you give them to will love them!

 

 

And there you have it! Enjoy the holidays, friends! See you next year!
