One of my favorite things about visiting Lisbon is ogling the intricate and colorful tilework. There is a famous tile museum there, but you can see just as many gorgeous examples by just wandering through the streets and back alleys of the city. #lisboa #principereal #colorplay

Almost every girl has a few too-big T-shirts in her closet, but instead of just wearing them to bed at night how about refashioning one into a cute tunic dress? I love this fashion DIY because it’s really easy to do and the resulting A-line dress is so easy to just throw on – especially for summer. The other great thing about this DIY is that if you have a tee with a graphic on it, you can even make your dress reversible so that you can wear it with the image in front for days you feel cheeky or wear the plain side in front on days when you’re feeling more serious.

Pillowcases, like earrings, shoes, and even some people, just don’t seem to function as well when they aren’t in a pair. So what do you do when you’re left with just one pillowcase after losing one to the laundry monster? Well, there’s no reason why you can’t just keep using it, but if you’re one of those people who is nitpicky about things matching, you can also turn your lone pillowcase into a cute summery top. Read on for the instructions.

One of the worries I had when I first became pregnant was that baby-related topics would begin to dominate my life: I swore to never become one of those moms who blabbers on incessantly about kid stuff! But alas, that fear is already manifesting with each word I type here as I write my very first baby product post ever on Clossette. In my defense, though, this post is more of a service for other parents and parents-to-be searching for information on the Babyletto Hula crib, since there doesn’t seem to be much available on the interwebs yet. I first learned about this beautiful and eco-friendly oval crib at The Bump‘s adorable and educational Motherlode event last week, and am interested in it because:

How to: Conveniently mount your foil and saran wrap for under $3

I used to just keep my foil and saran wrap in a drawer, but after moving to a new apartment with a smaller kitchen, I knew I wanted a more efficient and convenient solution. Sure, there are some decent foil storage rack options to be found online, but you know buying something pre-made is just not my style! If you’re like me and enjoy alternative solutions (read: cheap), here is a simple way to mount your foil and saran wrap to the inside of a cabinet to keep it out of sight but easily accessible. Plus, you’ll be using a lot less material than if you purchased a bulky new organizer rack.

Easy, Free and Green Boot Storage Idea

We’ve all experienced it – boot slump. When the weather warms up and you go to store your favorite pairs of boots only to have the tops flop over like Sad Sam’s ears, creating a messy situation in your closet and making your boots more likely to get fall into disrepair. I’ve seen products on the market like these blow up “boot keepers,” but who wants to spend more money on plastic when the solution to boot slump could already be right on your coffee table – back issues of your favorite magazines! They’re free (well, besides the money you originally dished out for your subscription), they keep your boots nice and crisp, and when you go to fetch them in the fall, you’ll get a blast of past fashion inspiration (because who wants to be a slave to the season’s latest trends anyway?).
