Hey crafty ladies! Get out your glue guns! This adorable bouquet craft is advertised as being for the 4th of July, but these pinwheel-esque flowers will look cute and fresh all summer long.

Personally, I think it kindles sense of ... Read More

Normally it would be good luck to have rain on your wedding day, but if you were wearing a gown made of toilet paper you might end up in your birthday suit.  AOL’s “StyleList” blog announced its contest winner for their Cheap Chic Weddings' 6th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress competition, and this dress by Galit Zeierman of Ramat Gan, Israel is for sure a winner. I’m not a fan of traditional wedding dresses, but ... Read More

One woman ... Read More
