How to extend your wardrobe through pregnancy pounds
While having a baby is a beautiful, natural experience, many women’s pregnancies are bogged down by insurmountable research and endless options.
As if hormones weren’t enough, mommies-to-be are bombarded with a barrage of new demands for accommodating their newbie human. Some may begin to wonder if having a baby is an economic event rather than an act of nature.
As an expectant mom who prefers simplicity, I’m quick to raise my eyebrow at the immense selection at hand. I wonder, is this 3-in-one gizmo going to make life easier, or merely take up space in my already-cluttered world? How did the women of yesteryear make due?
And really, must I buy a new wardrobe to flatter my bulging bump when all I want to do is curl up in sweats?!
Practical versatility quickly becomes the name of the game

Make stylish tea light holders from nothing but wire 
Want to add some style to an indoor or outdoor living space on the cheap?
All you need is a roll of wire and some pliers.
I stumbled across this DIY tea light holder idea from Remodelista via Pinterest the other day. It reminds me a lot of this very chic (and popular) hanging candle holder made from a wine bottle.

How and why to take the “no-poo” challenge
I have been “no-pooing” for nearly 5 months now. That means I’ve been forgoing shampoo and cleaning my hair with baking soda and apple cider vinegar (AVC).
I was fascinated by the concept of never having to use shampoo again. You’re probably thinking, “how can someone possibly live without shampoo? Won’t their hair look like an oily mess?”
Actually, the opposite will happen.
When you shampoo your hair, you are essentially stripping the natural oils away. As a result, you are creating a demand and dependence on shampoo, because of all the oils that are being produced. If you choose to give “no-pooing” a try, the oils will keep producing until they naturally find a balance.

How to make a recycled paper flower wedding bouquet 
My quest for an eco-friendly wedding is quickly becoming an all-encompassing DIY adventure. I’m designing and printing my own invitations, working with an Etsy vendor to create custom-made bridesmaid dresses, and scouring thrift shops and flea markets for vintage pieces, like antique blue Mason jars to use as centerpieces.
But the most time-consuming project so far has got to be the flowers. The origami paper flowers, that is.
