This must be the most beautiful DIY tutorial I have ever seen. And it so happens to be in style of this weekend. Found on Ulicam, a very nice blog by Ulrika Kestere, photographer and illustrator. For the whole tutorial and lot’s of inspiration, click here.
Grapefruit Lemonade - to a large pitcher of lemonade add in 2 cups of grapefruit juice and fresh slices of grapefruit. Give this one a taste when your done-as you may want to add more sugar if you feel it’s too tart.
Strawberry and Basil Lemonade - to a large pitcher of lemonade add 2-3 cups of chopped strawberries and a handful of chopped basil. The longer this lemonade sets the more the basil flavor will infuse with the beverage!
Cucumber Mint Lemonade - to a large pitcher of limeade (or lemonade) add one cucumber, thinly sliced, and a handful of chopped mint leaves. This one is similar to the Strawberry Basil lemonade in that the mint flavor will become stronger the longer this beverage sets.
Blackberry Lemonade - to a small pitcher of lemonade add 1 cup of slighlty mashed blackbarries. You can smash these by hand or with a spoon, but the more you smash them the more the color will infuse in your lemonade-pretty!

Homemade fruit leathers with Raspberry Vanilla, Apple & Fennel, and Mango Chili Lime.
Fruit Roll-Ups were one of those child hood snacks that seemed almost… magical. Fruity and sweet, portable, and as much fun to play with as they were tasty. As an adult, they’re a bit too sugary for my liking and the flavors are, well, too singular. Since road trip season is upon us, I wanted some car snacks that were healthy, portable, and fun to eat, like those roll-ups of yesteryear. Enter these adult flavored fruit leathers: Apple & Fennel, Mango Chili Lime, and Raspberry Vanilla to be exact. Yum! Easy to make and easy to take (with you).
- 1 Pound Raspberries
- ¾ Cup Sugar
- 2 Vanilla Beans
- 1 Pound Granny Smith Apples
- 2 fennel bulbs
- 1 Teaspoon ground Cinnamon
- 2 ½ Pounds Mangos
- 1 Lime
- ¼ Teaspoon Salt
- ½ Teaspoon Chili Powder
Buy empty Mason jars from the supermarket
Add a desired amount of your favourite dressing into the jar
Now add your favourite fruit or vegetables example: strawberries cut into small bit sizes or tomatoes – cherry/mini tomatoes (mini tomatoes are best as they keep fresh)
Add your meats example: ham or turkey or chicken – roll and cut then add into the jar
Go all in and grab whatever else you like example: cheese (shredded), carrots, pickles, banana peppers etc into the jar
Now you can add lettuce and/or baby spinach
Military Cut Sleeve DIY!
With the weather (finally) getting warmer, it’s crop top season! Here’s an easy way to turn your favorite cut sleeve vest into a cute crop top:
What you’ll need:
Our Wild Dreams Military Cut Sleeve Button Up (HERE)
1. To measure where to cut, try the vest on to see where you would like the crop top to fall. We used about an inch below the back text, but it’s up to you!
2. Draw a diagonal line from your crop height to the base of the vest (at about a 45 degree angle) using either chalk or a marker. Chalk is a little messier, but it’s easier to dust or wash off after you’re done. You can use a ruler to make sure you draw a straight line.
2. Cut along the diagonal lines for both the front and back of the vest.
3. Turn the vest over and draw a horizontal line from the top of each diagonal cut. Cut along the line to remove the back lower half of the vest.
4. Flip over the vest and unbutton the two bottom buttons, and then tie the two front pieces together. Cut off any hanging strings or jagged edges and the crop top is ready to wear!
