Blog of the Week: A Beautiful Mess

by Kristina Uriegas-Reyes

Honestly, I don’t quite have the patience for most D.I.Y.s, but once in a while something in a D.I.Y. blog or feature in BUST will catch my eye as something worth attempting. Color me surprised when I realized that almost every D.I.Y. post or recipe in A Beautiful Mess was looking totally amazing/do-able. There’s much more to the blog than just D.I.Y. though. This fantastic blog from blogger Elsie Larson is one of my new favorites simply because it’s filled with everything  from D.I.Y. tips/projects and delicious recipes to fabulous outfit posts and gorgeous photos. You know a blog is good when you find yourself constantly bookmarking specific entires. 

Here are some of my favorites so far:
