DIY Upcycled Makeup Storage

If you’ve seen my instagram any time in the past couple months then you already know I’m going full steam ahead with my home office decor. I’ve spent the last two years slowly collecting furniture I love, and it’s sooooo close to being complete.  That is not what this post is about. As part of the process, I’ve also been revamping my makeup storage. At our old house I tried the whole white IKEA desk & all acrylic storage thing, but eventually decided  ...

Quick & easy way to bandage a cracked nail

  My nails have been growing out pretty nicely recently, so naturally this happened: I hate when a nail cracks like that – too far down to cut it off, but deep enough to catch on something.

Tutorial: Getting an even curl pattern

Do you ever have moments that just make you question your level of intelligence? A while back I had one of those, and it happened at the hair salon, of all places. I was whining to my hairstylist about how unpredictable my curls are. Seriously, depending on weather, temperature, how long I dry my hair, star alignment, etc, etc, my curl pattern can be just totally different. Exhibit B: One day later, tiny ringlets, at least 1.5″ shorter, totally makes me look 10 years older But back to  ...
