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