* Speaking of nails, this is among the coolest nail tricks we’ve seen: How to Make Your Own Nail Stickers Out of Scotch Tape, from The Beauty Department.

* 10 Ways to Feel Rich, from Yes and Yes, will have you feeling fabulous no matter your bank account balance. Such fantastic tips; it’s worth a bookmark!

* Two great DIY projects from Make It & Fake It: Kate Spade-Inspired Bangles and a Kate Spade-inspired bow tee shirt.

* Style tips for bookworms: 10 Literary-Inspired Looks for a Well-Read Wardrobe, via Huffpost.

* More motivation to go after that summer internship: 6 Interns Who Ended Up Running the Company.

* And speaking of future careers, Fashionista’s list of the top 10 schools for fashion journalism, PR, marketing and more will be invaluable for you HS seniors (we know you’re reading!), and potential transfer students.

* We’re obsessed with these DIY beaded wedges from P.S. I Made This – what a cool (and easy) idea!

* Fashion news alert: In case you haven’t heard, Raf Simons (of Jil Sander) will be taking over at Dior as Creative Director, the job once held by John Galliano. What do you think of this choice?

* FabSugar has a fab (ha) roundup of the best spring fashion moments from your favorite TV shows.

* Also from Lucky, a great roundup of 50 Swimsuits Under $50!

* If you’re in need of new denim, Refinery 29 has 20 fab pairs of jeans under $100. Though, to be fair, we’d say “affordable” is more like $50 and under…

* What Your Break Up Technique Says About You, from The Gloss. Funny and probably accurate.

* From Stylelist, primary color accessories under $100 – we’re loving brights for spring!

* Love this for staying organized at class: DIY notebook pocket from Creme De La Craft.

* 10 Things We Learned from the Telegraph’s Dolce and Gabbana Profile, via Styleite. Love that Dolce was a “fashion victim” in college, haha!

* Also fictional character-related, The 9 Best Sibling Relationships from ’90s TV, via TresSugar.

* I know we’ve linked to similar tutorials before, but this step-by-step glitter flats DIY came out so well that we had to link it up.

* How to Make a Fabric Banner – this would be so fun as dorm decor or just a party decoration!
