Erica from Recycled Fashion recreates the look of singer Gwen Stefani:
Gwen Stefani oozes rock chic glam that others would find hard to pull off. Platinum rockabilly styled locks paired with smokey eyes and cherry red lips add glamour to a casual day out running errands with her beautiful kids. Skinny distressed jeans, killer heels and blazers are her common go-to pieces, but this is a lady that will wear a pair of converse boots with baggy pants and an old tee and still look amazing
We head to the super kitsch Roseleaf bar cafe in Edinburgh's Leith area to learn how-to make a super hearty ham hock terrine and simple hot smoked salmon pate.

Dress To Skirt Refashion
Recreate the look with Kristi's dress to skirt tutorial:
The best thing about living in Portland is the quirky culture. People are friendly and helpful and appreciate good design and great food. Plus, it's a well-kept secret that the summers here are fantastic, and the rainy winters really aren't that bad.
We head to the Palm Coast in Florida to go behind the scenes at Poofy Cheeks and explore Kelsey's craft room.
My favorite thing about the space is the natural light that comes in all day long. It is great for taking shop product photography and photos for my blog. I also love the big long wall which allows me to have one long desk to work on.
This week, we're recreating the costume of our very own crafty superhero Crafterella to mark our 100th DIY The Look:
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's crafty superhero Crafterella saving the day with her cat-lady style and crafty skills!
We head to Savannah, Georgia to indulge with dessert and cocktails at Lulu's Chocolate Bar where we learn to make a Grand Marnier Buttercream Cake and B-52 Coffee Drink.
This week we're testing out a set of nail wraps from Jamberry Nails, giving our US readers a chance to win a set and teaching you how-to apply them. As well as offering over 300 designs to choose from, you can also make your own custom wraps via the Jamberry Nails website, so Cat volunteered herself as this week's Craft Test Sidekick, designed her own and shared her tips for applying them:
The nail wraps were nice and simple to design using the website and the guides to get the print just right. The beauty of nail wraps is that you can have a really complicated design with the tiniest of details, which would be almost impossible with traditional nail varnish. I don't have a lot of experience will nail art, so I found the application a little tricky and it took a little longer a than I had expected - so I'd recommend applying them when you've got free time on your hands, rather than an hour before you have to leave for a party. The end result looked amazing and it was so much easier than attempting to paint a similar look.
