Laura recreates a retro British party, perfect for celebrating the Queen's birthday in #DIYTheParty
Let's party like it's 1943, the pinnacle of the make do and mend era! Since it's the queen's 90th birthday this year - and let's face it, since we all love a bit of vintage and upcycling! - I thought it'd be really fun to arrange a Keep Calm & Party fest with a hint of 'Best of British'! I've gathered together some of my favourite tutorials to craft everything you could possibly need, from retro fashion to classic British tea and scones. Most important, I think, is the gin and the bunting (I find it's VERY important to practice making the gin cocktails and gin trifles several times before the big day... just for quality purposes, of course - wouldn't want to disappoint our guests, now, would we??! ;) Just don't run out of gin before the party... Umm... Oops.)

PineconePrincess recreates the look of Melanie Martinez for today's #DIYTheLook
I love Melanie Martinez, her style is so fun and youthful and I really like her personality and the fact that she is not scarred to be who she wants to be and that she doesn't let other people stop her from saying/doing what she does.

Marisa from New Dress A Day recreates the style of Kate Hudson for #DIYTheLook
Kate Hudson has had a place on my mood board for years as she's always wearing things that I need to have in my life. She spans the style pages rocking ethereal to modern and edgy like nobody's business and can really pull off anything. ANYTHING.

Welcome to my little piece of heaven! And I do mean LITTLE piece of heaven. I'm the type who tries to turn my limitations into unique strengths, so I guess my favorite thing about my kitchen IS that it's teeny tiny and cute. Even though it may not look super small from the photos (yes-- I cleaned up the junk mail just for you. You're welcome.), it is. But oddly enough, I like it that way. Small kitchen = Easier to clean. I also love my little window above the sink. All my plants cluster there, hungry for sunlight. haha.
