5 Things I Read This Weekend

How many times have you gotten the "free" glass with purchase at theme parks or restaurants, only to take it home and put it in your cabinet {never to be seen again or better yet, sold it at a yard sale for 25 cents}? Well, on the Sugar & Cloth blog, she has a brilliant idea for repurposing those glasses. See the post here.

I am constantly in awe of the pretty visuals on the Fresh Exchange blogThis post in particular, called Art to Outfit is one of my favorites. It features a beautiful painting, then translates the colors into a bold outfit.

The Beauty Department is one of my go-to sites for hair or makeup tips and tutorials that I have used over and over again. Last week they posted a DIY that's sure to be one of my all time favorites: using a contact case for makeup touch ups. I am doing this as soon as I find a leopard print contact case! Get that tutorial here. And, check out my other favorite DIY from them that I actually tried, the headband holder. Find it here.

If you were anything like me as a kid, you loved popsicles. I remember chasing the ice cream man every summer! I ran across this recipe for strawberry margarita popsicles and really, who needs the ice cream man when you have these. Find the recipe here.

I love tips on getting a "look for less" and on the Note to Self blog, it is a regular feature with Hers/Mine. See my one of my favorites featuring Ashley Olsen here.

That's my five, did you run across anything that you loved and is share worthy? If so, please share it with me in comments-I love finding new blogs! Have a great week!


  1. I might have to actually do that DIY you just linked to. (: I haven't checked out the rest of your links yet. As for me, I don't have anything to share, sadly.
