anastasiaanastasia Dryer Vent Pumpkin For those of you who maybe haven't see this industrial pumpkin before, here is what you need: Dryer vent (purchased at your local hardware store), orange spray paint, a stem (I used cinnamon sticks, but you can use sticks or whatever you want), and a little bit of raffia. I cut and glued the vent into a donut using hot glue. Then I spray painted the whole thing, making sure to get in all the groves. Attach the cinnamon sticks and raffia, you have yourself a cute little pumpkin!
DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge Declare your love for cool tools and be a cut above the rest! Girls on-the-go with modern, multifaceted style need to be prepared for anything that comes their way. Enter life’s must-have accessory; the Swiss Army knife. For centuries, these legendary tools have battled rogue threads on our cocktail dresses, smoothed chips in perfectly manicured nails and so much more. Our pocketknife pal stays put in our purse and is as essential as lipgloss! Aside from the obvious “fix-it” functions, we’re big fans of using this handheld toolbox to DIY. Read on to learn how you can create a coveted “kiltie” embellishment for heels in need of an overhaul. To create, trace and cut a template (almost like a stretched trapezoid) on paper. P.S.- The size will depend on your shoe size. Be sure to measure the template to the shoe before cutting and also leave a few extra inches toward the upper portion to tuck into the shoe. Use your Swiss Army knife (on a cutting board with a flat surface) and cut two pieces of fabric. Any type of suede or leather-like material works. Use mini snips to cut two-inch slits. Continue to use snips to create an inverted “V” fringe. Pierce two tiny slits with your knife half-way down. Feed cord through the holes, leaving space for your ankle to fit in. Lastly, add a bead detail to the ends and tie a cute bow. Get creative with your colors of materials, cords, and shoes- mix and match your heart away…Your Swiss Army pocket knife pal is super sharp… your DIY style should be too!

lizliz From the original post: " Whenever I go clothes shopping and I find myself not too happy with my reflection or discover the clothes I really like don’t fit, I get my camera out and take a few photos of myself in the mirror instead of letting any negative thoughts creep in. I took this one yesterday after discovering a dress I fell in love with the moment I saw it didn’t fit me properly around the bust. I did a few silly poses, a few sexy poses and a few happy ones where I smiled as widely as I could and focused on all the things about me and about my body that I like. I came out of the fitting room feeling really positive about myself and how I look instead of brooding over the fact that the dress was too small for me. I really recommend doing this when going clothes shopping - it it’s a great way to chase away any negative thoughts or disappointment if clothes don’t fit!"
