The Beauty Department posted a super cute plaid nail art tutorial that we can't wait to try.

*

Also from The Beauty Department, this subtle glitter eye makeup look would be so fun for a night out.

*

We're beyond obsessed with Honestly, WTF's incredible DIY studded sneakers - so edgy-cool, yet surprisingly simple to make.

*

As a '90s kid, this was the best thing I read all week: Way More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About The Animaniacs, from Mental Floss. (Sidenote: The Nations of the World song has been in my head ever since!)

*

Okay, this is a close second for the best thing I saw online this week: Skrillex, Reviewed by Cute Kids. LOVE. "I think he should be more like Elton John!"

*

Aww, this is great: Modern Kindness - 9 Day-Brightening Stories of Generosity, from - who else? - Oprah.

*

Holy crap, this is frightening: Could your hairstyle be affecting your eyesight?

*

If you live in a small apartment with an even smaller kitchen (and have a talent for DIY or a friend who does), you need to check out Classy Clutter's DIY canned food organizer - it's genius and will probably double your storage space.

*

Got friends graduating this year? FabSugar has a list of fun graduation gift ideas.

*

Also from FabSugar, a feature on the hot pink trend for Summer 2012.

*

The NY Times did a piece on the pinup fashion trend today - see if you can spot the CF shoutout! :)

*

Even though summer break has just started, it's still fun to start thinking about fall fashion. Madewell's Fall Lookbook and Club Monaco's Fall 2012 Collection are ALMOST enough to make us want to fast-forward to September. Almost.

*

Fashionista lists their Top 10 Favorite YouTube Hair Tutorials Of All Time. Worth bookmarking!

*

Surveying the Fashion from The Avengers, via Blackbook Mag - as usual, Gwyneth wins on the fashion front.

*

Hahaha: What to Do When You Suck at DIY, from HelloGiggles. Project 2 is the best.

*

Math class may be out for summer, but R29's post on fashion math will have you adding up perfect summer outfits.

*

Haha, the Gloss explains How People Really Dressed in the '80s.

*

Also from The Gloss, Thin Models Actually Don't Make Most Women Buy Clothes. Now here's hoping the industry takes note soon - it's incredible that this fact has been overlooked for so long.

*

If you're living in NYC this summer, you need to bookmark EcoSalon's list of 7 Awesome Thrift Stores in New York City. (I've only been to one of these, WCAGA - it is a MUST visit!)

*

The Last Ice Coffee Recipe You'll Ever Need. This looks beyond amazing.

*

Already Pretty shows you how to curb impulse buys - so important for your wardrobe and wallet!

*

File this under "yes, people actually do this as a job": The Worst Thing About Being a Doll Hairstylist? The Grandmas, from BuzzFeed.

*

Lauren Conrad explains her new year's fashion resolution, to organize her closet once a month.

*

Our friend Geneva from A Pair + A Spare never ceases to amaze us. Case in point: Her latest DIY project, a chic clutch made from - get this - a paper bag. Why didn't we think of this?

*

From Stylelist, one girl tries her grandma's beauty routine for a week, sleeping with Noxzema cream on every night.

*

Okay, fair warning: I don't recommend reading this late at night like I stupidly did - it might, ahem, give you nightmares about 9-year-old serial killers. That said, it's also fascinating, especially if you watch lots of crime shows. Can You Call a 9-Year-Old a Psychopath?, from the New York Times.

*

The Hairpin shows you how to do finger-waves, in case you have any '20s-themed soirees coming up!

*

Oh god, I don't know what to think about this: "Camelflage" panties are exactly what they sound like... underwear designed to protect against a specific type of female wardrobe malfunction.

*

Refinery 29 posted a really cool nail art tutorial requiring just one special tool... saran wrap.
