DIY Temporary Colombré Hair

DIY Temporary Colombré Hair

I. Am. Obsessed. Rainbow hair!!!!!! We’ve all seen the colored hair trend, the ombré hair trend and more recently the SAND ART (!) hair trend (I’ve got some sand art projects up my sleeve, by the way!) and now we have… the “Colombré Hair” trend!! BA-BAM!

Basically, you take the ombre style and rainbow-tize it, with your natural color at the roots and all sorts of good hues fading down from the mid-section of your hair to the ends. I HAD to give it a try but wasn’t too keen on going the more permanent root so I brought in Stefanie of PAGE Beauty to help show us a temporary colombré technique… with hair chalk!!! It turned out WAY more amazing than I ever imagined and you just HAVE to try it. No excuses since there’s no dye or bleach involved! HOO-RAY! Ready?

Sugar Fix: Sugarfina Pasadena

Candy Rainbow

CANDY! One of my fave LA candy spots, Sugarfina, recently opened a new location in Pasadena and you better bet Jeff and I got our buns up there to check it out! They have candies like Ice Cream Sundae Malt Balls, Fruity Loops (Yes, like fruit loop flavored.), Birthday Cake Caramels and of course their famous Champagne Gummy Bears. They source the (finest!) candy from all over the world and basically, it’s everything you ever wanted in a candy store and MORE. More mostly because not only does Sugarfina do candy right, they do packaging right. And that makes my heart go all PITTER PATTER BOOM BOOM! We had a blast checking out the new space, and playing around with the candy in the studio afterwards. IT’S JUST SO PRETTY!

Studio DIY is Hiring: Creative Development + Styling Assistant

Studio DIY Hiring

You guys! We’re so excited to be growing the Studio DIY team by one more! Hoo-ray! We are looking for another creative mind and stylist to focus exclusively on developing and producing DIY content for the Studio DIY brand! The person who fills this role will work super closely with me to steer the direction of Studio DIY’s future content, and help put it all together too.

A quick (long) synopsis: This is a two-part job. Part creative development and part creative production. We are looking for someone who understands Studio DIY’s style and vibe but brings their own unique, new and out-of-the-box perspective to the brand. This person should push boundaries and bring a different point-of-view to the brand, while still staying true to Studio DIY’s core messaging. We clearly already have piñatas, donuts and balloons on lock. We are looking for someone who will be able to execute those ideas, while also bringing new ideas to the table.

We are looking for someone with art, design or styling experience, but someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty, day in and day out. Being detail-oriented is important ABOVE ALL ELSE! Yes, the blog is a craft blog, but DIY is our JOB and these DIYs should look like you could have bought them at the store. Someone who is enthusiastic and has a great sense of humor.

We hope to transition this position to a full-time position in 2016 and are looking for someone who is willing and excited to grow with the brand. You must be based in the Los Angeles area. If this sounds like you, please read the details and instructions on how to apply below thoroughly.

Job Tasks Include:

-Producing DIY projects and other creative content for Studio DIY
-Developing and brainstorming NEW ideas, concepts and topics for Studio DIY
-Styling DIY + other shoots
-Sourcing and shopping for materials, supplies and props


-Styling, art and/or design background
-EXTREMELY detail-oriented
-Self-starter and creative thinker (We need someone who is self-sufficient, decisive and confident in their creative skills.)
-On-set photo shoot experience a HUGE plus
-Must be available 2-3 days/week to work at Studio DIY HQ in Downtown Los Angeles, starting ASAP
-Must have your own car and laptop


Email with “Studio DIY Super Trooper”  in the subject and the following:

-Your resume
-A short paragraph about yourself including why you want to work for Studio DIY, why you are a good fit and your career goals
-A link to (or examples of) your portfolio
-Links to your Instagram, Pinterest and/or other social accounts

DIY Retro Swim Frapp(uccinos)

There’s a story, of a Vanilla Bean lady. And GIRLFRIEND needed a little sunshine! Starbucks asked me to personify one of their Frappuccinos and I felt it was my duty to give Ms. Vanilla Bean a little retro sunbathin’ makeover! Ok, I mostly just wanted a flower swim cap for myself. But WE ARE ALL WINNERS HERE! So for those of you who might be throwing just one more big summer shindig, I highly encourage you to turn your drinks into the bathing beauties they were always meant to be.
