How to Tint Your Eyelashes

Eyelash Tinting Tinting eyelashes at a salon can run you around $30, but learn to do it yourself and you can get it done for next to nothing. Tinting does not add thickness or length like mascara does.  It does, however, add color to light eyelashes making them more apparent […]

Upcycling a Frame

You may have seen this already as a guest post on brassyapple.com.  Today I’m going to share it on here! This summer I found a beautiful frame at a garage sale.  The owners were asking for $10, but I bartered them down to $5–which was a pretty good deal considering […]

Sizing Up

Normally when I refashion things, I tend to take them in to fit me.  I have a tendency to think that more fabric means more possibilities.  Today’s refashion, however, is different.  I began with a skirt I bought from a Down East sale for $5.  I loved the artsy feel […]

DIY Stretchy Lace Skirt

I was really excited when I found some stretchy knit fabric in the remnant section of the fabric store.  I was even more excited when I found matching stretchy lace there too.  I immediately knew I wanted to make a cream lace skirt.  You may have seen the other lace […]

Easy and Versatile

Every 2-4 months I go through all my clothes and find piles of stuff I don’t wear anymore that I give away.  I feel like things come in and out of style so fast, it’s hard to keep up.  I want to buy stuff that will last, that’s versatile, and […]

The Dark Side

I have a love/hate relationship with self-tanner.  On the one side, it hides imperfections and provides a healthy glow, on the other side, it can look completely unnatural and splotchy and rival the smell of a toxic chemical spill.  Nevertheless, like a cookie in my pantry, I can’t seem to […]
