Beauty

Got thick hair? Here are four ways to thin your hair out, or at least make it look that way. The first one is surprising–wash your hair in cold water!

This pretty rolled chignon hairstyle from Hair Romance looks so easy and simple.

DIY

These DIY Journals from Trinkets in Bloom would make great gifts:

It’s not too soon to think about Easter; you can purchase plain wooden Easter eggs, paint them in beautiful designs and fill them with goodies. Bonus–you can use them again next year.

Make yourself a pretty faux-pearl studded clutch.

Nom Nom

April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day. Thank goodness Merry Thought clued us in, and provided a list of TEN delicious varieties of grilled cheese sandwiches:

This is an older post from Oh She Glows that my friend (thanks Kelly!) pointed out to me a few days ago. I can’t stop thinking about how delicious is would be to use as a “creamer” in coffee. Must make soon!

Style

I Spy DIY shares her favorite stone jewelry from Etsy–we’re really digging these rough cut styles.

This ensemble from Frankie Loves Fashion is really simple, but the cool blue top and white jeans are so fresh and summery (also love the necklace–Mad Men inspired?).

Holy Hannah, Alison answers a question about styling Birkenstocks. She’s a braver woman than I am.

Rainbow nails from Atlantic-Pacific–new trend?

Lifestyle

Love the advice on Smart, Pretty and Awkward about looking at your email from a year ago to get perspective on how resilient we are to hardship.

Google continues to be the coolest place to work–check out the rad new offices in Amsterdam.

The benefits (and personal growth) that come from living alone.

This is a little bit of heaven–a French bulldog puppy who is not interested in going to bed when Mom says to:

Have a good weekend!
