Our friends at A Beautiful Mess have an awesome DIY glasses case tutorial up. Take a look here: http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/01/leather-sunglasses-holder-diy.html
How cute is this vintage fabric!? We think this print would look great as a pillow. What would you create with it?
We just love this gold and glitter dipped feathers DIY from Copenhaven: http://thecopenhaven.blogspot.ca/2012/10/diy-gold-glitter-dipped-feathers.html
Here’s how it’s done…
- Metallic gold craft paint
- Large white craft feathers
- Gold craft glitter
- Plastic cup
Pour paint into a plastic cup for easy dipping.
Dip the feather tips into the paint.
Brush off the excess paint from the back of the feathers onto the cup rim to reduce goopiness.
Immediately sprinkle glitter on the freshly-dipped feather tips.
Next, you’ll want to put your feathers somewhere to dry. Make sure they are secure on/in something while they dry so they don’t fall. And also make sure you have something underneath them to catch any drippings.
Let dry over night.
Can be used for garlands, displayed in a vase, etc.
Today I am going to share an eyewear-themed DIY project that will save you some serious money. Buying commercial cleaners for your lenses can set you back a cool $10 or more a pop. A few bottles down the line, you’ll be wishing you could have saved that hard-earned cash of yours and picked up that second pair BonLook glasses—you know, that pair you had your eyes on last time you visited the site—instead of this darn bottled transience! Well, it’s time to rejoice, fellow eyewear-lovers. After a little experimentation, I think I was able to concoct the perfect imitation glasses cleaning spray! You can try it for yourself. The recipe below costs mere pennies and is (in my opinion) just as effective as any commercial cleaner I’ve tried.
The whole concept of sweet indulgences that don’t break the bank is the subject of this blog post. After a long, hard week of trying on sunglasses, blogging, and Intagramming/Tweeting/Facebooking (ahem, yeah, I know my job is awesome) I love to pamper myself with an afternoon of relaxation. If you can afford to have a weekly spa day, then kudos to you lucky lady! This post is for the rest of us who love to have a lavish afternoon but don’t want to shell out too much. I’ll be sharing my favourite at-home pamper session where everything comes to less than $100 (hey, just like your future new prescription sunnies!)
