Jenny creates her dream vintage look for today's #DIYTheLook

My girl is all about vintage. Loving the well turned out 40s to the fun and flirty 50s. Immaculate make up, beautifully styled hair. A make do and mend kinda girl who knows how to turn something ordinary into a statement piece. I included the cardigan, because even though it was intended as a children's project it would certainly work for 1950s woman who wanted fun and colour after the 1940s austerity,

Cross-Stitch to Calm

Shelf 51hry 2bimaml

We chat to Leah, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to cross-stitch a fossil and a bird on a branch.

Hello, my name is Leah and I'm the author of 'Cross Stitch to Calm'. I'm a mother of 5 children, 2 of whom are autistic. I use cross stitching as a way of relaxing and escapism. (in my head I'm under a palm tree, on a beach, stitching away!)

Noah is a freelance illustrator living in Portland OR. In addition to contributing to numerous publications all over the country, he is currently storyboarding for an upcoming cartoon show being produced for Comedy Central.



Come behind the scenes at Tartes and Recreation for a #KitchenTour and see Sonja's kitchen in Munich, Germany.

I'm very happy that it fits a table big enough for a few people. For me, a kitchen needs to be more than a place where just the food is cooked. It's the heart of the apartment. It's where you sit and talk, and drink and play board games and of course eat when you have guests.


Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel •

The best thing about living in Tel Aviv is that you are always in the middle of the action. Any time you go out on the street there is something interesting going on. In the mornings the cafes are packed, the stores are bustling and the atmosphere is amazing. In the evenings the bars are full, there is music in all the main streets and whether you fancy a quiet bar and beer or an all-night party, you have your pick of it all.




Elizabeth dreams of picnicking with Nessie at Loch Ness for this week's #DIYTheParty

I live about 40 miles from Loch Ness, but oddly, I have yet to have a picnic there! I need to remedy that, so I have put together a little picnic party, complete with tasty treats, a warm blanket, an umbrella for rain or shine and, of course, a Nessie for company. And wouldn't it be nice to stay at the loch into the night to hopefully catch some Northern Lights?
