The Beauty Department shows you the perfect makeup to pair with this season's brights.

*

Super cute: Zig Zag Nail Tutorial! You could do this with a million different colors, but the green would be so St. Patty's day-perfect.

*

Also St. Patrick's Day-related: 7 Chic Ways to Wear Green for St. Patty's

*

DIY French Tip Two Tone Shoes, from Superficial Girls. Did those shoes come out well or what?! Fantastic way to try a spring trend for less.

*

Another fun project to try: DIY Sculpey Bead Necklace.

*

One more: DIY Draped Skirt. They're selling almost this EXACT skirt at Nasty Gal right now for $30+, so this is a great way to save on a trendy style.

*

Hunger Games fans, you need to visit Hunger Names for your HG name and district! Mine is Thicket Gristlewhist, from District 12, and I was killed by "a literal manifestation of teen angst." Awesome.

*

A Beautiful Mess shows you how to add your handwriting to photos. I want a Wacom tablet so bad!

*

Get in the spring mood with 13 Floral Pieces to Keep Your Wardrobe Fresh and 13 Bright Pieces to Liven Up Your Look, both from R29.

*

Things That Seem Normal When You Live Alone - super funny and so true, even if you have roomies. P.S. "Floor is the new couch."

*

Also funny: What Should We Call Me is a Tumblr that has hilarious .gifs for every possible situation.

*

A solid 20 minute read but totally fascinating: What Happened to the Girls in Le Roy, an in-depth look at what really may have caused the twitching epidemic among the high school girls in Le Roy, NY.

*

StyleList breaks down a few model must-have beauty products. And okay, they're pricey, but they obviously work!

*

Want to invest in a classic bag that you'll have FOREVER? The Gloss' list has you covered.

*

Cute idea: Styld-by, from Gap, is a blogger-styled editorial feature that lets you buy things straight from the fashion spread. We like!

*

If you're lucky enough to own a waffle maker, these 4 recipes from Luxirare look awesome. Need to make the Oreo one!

*

We're not quite sure how she does it, but Haleigh of Making Magique knows how to ROCK a tulle skirt.

*

Introducing our absolute fave nail blog of the moment: PSHIIIT. Yes, it's in French, but the photos are enough.

*

Kind of weird but also amusing: Students at a Chinese university did a knockoff Victoria's Secret fashion show. Somehow I doubt this would fly at most American universities, but never say never!

*

Creepy but also cool: How to Give Yourself a Veiny Manicure, from Rookie.

*

This is super old but super cute: How to Make Your Own Cute Knickers, via Drummbellina.
