Hello Everyone! I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. I spent the weekend window shopping in Portland, eating macaroons (rose and crème brûlée, anyone?), redesigning Style Context for its transition to wordpress.org (coming soon!), trying to cook quinoa-chickpea-beet veggie burgers only to have them fall apart (I’m only a novice cook, after all), and of course blogging. I also received news that one of my posts – 7 DIY Beauty Hacks – made IFB’s Links à la Mode Roundup! As someone who enjoys DIY posts on other blogs, and frequently repins DIY links on Pinterest, I understand the value of sharing such posts and will continue to write them. You can check out my DIY Beauty Hacks, as well as the 19 other amazing articles that made the roundup, some of which include other DIY tips. Read below for the IFB post and links.
Links à la Mode: The IFB Weekly Roundup

On a Trend Bender
Summer is actually the best time to play around with trends. You know why? Because summer is the the best time play around in general! With all the bold colors and prints, the great summer sales, and gorgeous weather, it’s hard not to get caught up in the spirit of going bold. This week’s roundup has wonderful links to get you in the mindset to try new trends, even ones you don’t think you’d look good in. We’ve even got a great DIY for leather shorts, if you’re crafty and don’t want to shell out the dough for a store-bought pair. And even if you’re not crafty, there’s a great guide to hitting the summer sales. If you’re anything like me, it’s too easy to get caught up in a good deal, so I need all the help I can get not to overspend. Anyway, here are the links for the week. Enjoy!
