DIY Denim Cutoffs

One of my goals since moving to my new apartment is to craft and cook more. I pin all of these delicious recipes and cool DIY projects, but I don’t ever do anything with them. First up, I made my own pair of denim cutoffs. I followed this tutorial from the Glamourai. They didn’t turn out perfect, but for a first attempt I was quite pleased.

Display Your Gems

If you’re in need of a quick, easy and cheap way to decorate your room, put your jewelry on display! Firstly, it will instantly add a fun pop of color. Secondly, it’s a great way to remind yourself of the pieces that you own, rather than forgetting about that favorite statement necklace tucked away in a dusty drawer. By having your gems out in the open, you can visualize your options and quickly accessorize on your way out the door!

The painted flower plate (above) was a flea market find that now holds my bracelets and stud earrings. The blossom hook rack (below) is from Anthropologie, and I loved it so much that I now own two for my necklaces. I purchased the bodice earring holder (below) at a craft booth in high school, and it’s still the best way to keep all of my earrings from becoming a tangled mess. Finally, I also have a letter “A” hook from Anthropologie (not pictured) that holds a stack of colorful bangles and a straw fedora.

S’more Croissants

Today I baked the easiest (but tastiest) dessert that I found thanks to Pinterest. The recipe is from Northern Cottage and it only requires three ingredients: mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and tube crescent rolls. The total prep time was about three minutes for eight rolls and after 10 minutes in the oven they were golden brown. I highly recommend eating them hot! My roomies and I devoured them almost immediately.

My Newest Obsession

This week I created three new accounts: Gmail, Pandora and Pinterest. (Yes, I realize how terribly behind I am by just joining these sites now.) Of the three, Pinterest is undoubtedly my newest obsession; I only began pinning as of yesterday and already I can’t seem to stop. For those already on Pinterest, you can follow my boards here. And if you aren’t pinning yet, I definitely recommend it. I’ve already found numerous recipes and DIY projects I can’t wait to try. Not to mention I’m making quite the list of wardrobe staples that I need immediately.

Photo Frames

For my final semester at UGA, I’m living in the same apartment (and with the same roommates) as last year. Because I didn’t sublease while living in Alpharetta over the summer, move in was a simple process. Everything in my room was already in place, but I wanted to change out two posters for new wall decorations. To fill the space, I took two old photo frames and replaced the outdated pictures with images I found from some of my favorite fashion blogs. The DIY project was simple and inexpensive, and the result was just what I was hoping for.
