Personalized Hangers
[Quick makeover]

Personalized dress hangers are usually something girls get for their bridal showers and weddings. But believe it or not custom clothes hangers can also be very helpful, when it comes to organizing your closet. 

Use the custom hangers to rearrange your wardrobe by seasons. Prepare whole outfits for certain occasions and "label" them with name hangers. Or simply "mark" his and yours clothes and prove that he has definitely more stuff, when you do.

How to transform mason jars into colorful home accessories.

Colorful Spray Painted Mason Jars
[Upcycling project]

Everyday objects such as jars or bottles usually don't have a long lifespan. The shiny containers are something we're unfairly taking for granted and throwing them away after they've served their purpose.

But if large scale events like weddings and birthdays lie ahead of you, you might rethink your attitude toward the mason jars. With little time and permanent spray paint, you can transform the simple preserving jars into a colorful table decoration. Because of their inexpensive production the spray painted jars aka flower vases can save you a great deal of money.

Delicate Bow Necklace
[Fashion accessory tutorial]

Couple weeks ago I stumbled across an article on harpersbazaar.com about an Art Director who one day decided to wear the exact same style to work every day: a white shirt, black pants and for personal detail a black leather rosette. I am not a fan of work uniform but I really love her idea to wear a delicate leather bow as necklace. 

In the article she mentioned that her bow necklace was customized for her, so in this tutorial I show you how you can customize yours. The special leather lock on the bow is what makes this necklace special. It forms a perfect bow and allows you to vary the size of it. Easy tutorial with a stylish result.

[Beauty] The Power of Cucumber

The Power of Cucumber
[Beauty recipes for skin care]

After a long winter our skin can experience redness or irritation. This is due to spending a lot of time in closed, heated places where the humidity is low. If you want to help your skin, then this cucumber skin care recipes are the answer. 

Is the green plant really that good for your skin? Yes, indeed! Cucumbers are 95% water, so in essence they are great moisturizer for your skin. They also have a subtle, mild skin lightening effect, which can make your skin appear youthful and glowing. Cucumbers help in reducing swellings and dark circles around the eyes, tighten open pores and reduce fine lines and other signs of aging. Basically it's a Super Plant with Super Powers!

The Iron Booster Juice
[healthy recipe]

Iron can make the difference between you feeling on top of the world and downright miserable. Iron plays a key role not only in the body's oxygen transport and delivery system, but also in the regulation of metabolism. If your blood has a lower amount of red blood cells you'll start to feel tired, hungry and cold.

Most doctors argue that the best way to improve your iron level naturally is by eating red meat. I claim this iron rich juice recipe is a much healthier solution:

[Gourmet] Sweet Potato Eggplant Pancakes

Sweet Potato Eggplant Pancakes
[Vegetarian recipe]

In Germany the sweet potato gained the popularity only a couple years ago. Before I hat to drive to another neighborhood to get the sweet plant because my local store didn't sell it. If you live in USA it's probably hard for you to believe that something simple like a sweet potato could be a deficit product somewhere else. 

Once I've discovered the plant in my market I lived on the sweet potatoes for weeks. I basically replaced the regular potato with it's sweet version in my cousin. During that "sweet potato period" I created some delicious and I would like to hope healthy recipes for lazy cooks.

[DIY] Faux Rings Gloves

DIY Faux Rings Gloves
[Gloves makeover]

Rings over gloves are too decadent? I say they're awesome and stylish. Whether skulls, spikes or rhinestones- more is more is the rule here. How you decorate the gloves is totally up to you, but I suggest you choose your decoration based on the material of the gloves. 

If you use leather gloves, like I did in this tutorial, I recommend you to go with bulky, metallic embellishment. If you pick knitted/fabric gloves I would go with something soft like pearls or rhinestones. One more thing- more is more but still try to avoid too many colors. Otherwise it might look clownish.
