It's no secret that the holidays are a crazy busy time of year!

I haven't posted a tutorial in quite a while (in case you missed it, don't miss out on one of my most recent posts here), but that doesn't mean I haven't been crafting lately. 

Despite being quite busy with the end of the semester and finals week as well as traveling to see family over Christmas break, I've started quite a few projects that I am super excited to share with you all in the upcoming months! 

While I finish all the projects I have started (and have yet to start) and write up tutorials on them, I'm posting some pictures of inspiration I am drawing on for upcoming projects.

pv.Body + a discount!

I'm usually at the gym 4-5 times a week and being a college student, I put off laundry as long as humanly possible, so I go through a lot of workout clothes.

And I figure that if I'm wearing cute workout clothes, people are less likely to look at my face, which usually looks like a boiled tomato. Which is where pv.Body (and an awesome discount for you readers!) come in.

Book Garland // DIY

This week is the start of finals week (boo) and thus a lot of studying (double boo), so today's post is a quick one.

Today we're making garland out of an old book! This whole project cost me 50 cents. And no, that wasn't a typo!

(Aren't those dorm room walls classy? Yeeeeah baby.)

It is super easy!
Read on to learn how.
