New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a night where glitter, party dresses, and sparkly drinks all around the world collide into one huge party. What’s not to love? The night also wouldn’t be complete without a festive headband! So before you head to your local party store for a holiday headgear, make your own headband no one else will have with this DIY!  (more…)

DIY: Fa-La-La Crop Top

Merry Christmas, loves! As much fun as it is dressing for specific holidays, I’d much rather splurge on items I can wear year-round than something I can only wear one month a year (which explains the lack of “ugly” Christmas sweaters in my closet but the surplus of wedges and boots… Holiday sales always get the best of me-and my wallet!). Luckily creating festive pieces can work on a college-friendly budget, like this “Fa-la-la” crop top! With three easy steps, this DIY will leave you looking festive WITH extra money in your budget to hit the after-Christmas sales.

Creating your own “Fa la la” crop top is as easy as saying Ho-ho-ho! (more…)
