Thanks to A-list celebrities like Lauren Conrad and Vanessa Hudgens, braids weaved into the hair - whether as a hairband or just braided randomly through loose hair - have seen a significant upsurge in popularity over the last few years.
We'd be lying if we said that the upsurge in the past few years of DIY/homemade weddings wasn't due to the bad state of the economy. While DIY has always had a presence, its following was more cultish in nature until recently. With the average wedding costing $29,000 and maintaining and getting a job as hard as it is, it's no wonder brides and their super loyal friends are making as much of the wedding decor and treats as they can.
By now you've probably heard of the duct tape crafting trend. If nothing else, the sour economy has inspired an upsurge of popularity in DIY stuff, including using duct tape to make everything from prom dresses to wallets.
Yogurt is more than an excellent source of protein, calcium, and gut-healthy probiotic bacteria. A protein isolated from probiotic lactobacillus bacteria in yogurt is capable of inhibiting drug-resistant bacteria.
