DIY inspiration and my new fav site

So once again being the poor college student I am, I can afford my new Seven jeans and True Religion Perfume, but I can't afford to eat out or buy expensive food. Its give and take. I do eat really healthy, but I've been stocking up on my canned veggies (organic of course) so instead of throwing the cans away, I knew I could use them for something.
And I totally just figured it out, thanks to See Jane Work website.
Easy, Easy, Easy DIY: Paper-covered Pencil/paintbrush holder/makeup stuff holder (I'm currently using an old starbucks cup to hold my eyeliners)

Pencil Cups
While these retail for $10, I figure I can spend 50cents (get some food) and make a completely adorable can for $1.00 (for the paper)

It sounds totally weird, but I HATE throwing away magazines. I love referencing them for everything. And if I don't cut them to pieces for my inspiration book, I just stack them up. So I totally need some of these! $8 at See Jane Work.
Magazine Boxes

I'm always drawing a blank on what words to use, with these ultra chic dictionaries from Webster, I think my diction would be much more, colorful. To say the least.
Webster's Fashion Color Thesaurus

This mail sorter would make organizing the mail between 4 people so much easier, rather than making a pile on the coffee table!

Ok, so I'm completely infatuated with See Jane Work's website. I could post every item from the site on this blog, but I'll spare you and just have you check it out for yourself. When I'm finally settled in a place for more than 4 months at a time, I'm definitely investing in some of these products!


  1. I want one of those dictionaries SO bad... great ideas, thanks for sharing!


  2. I love that paper coverd can idea- very cute!

    I am totally with you on not being able to throw away magazines! Ikea has some great wood holders for 5.99 each- with a coat of paint they are the best thing I have ever bought there. I'm slightly obsessed with them and buy like 8 everytime I'm there.
