DIY Courtesy of Maegan

For my first DIY post, I want to tell you about Maegan from ...Love Maegan. She is always posting cute DIY things, and this week she posted a DIY jersey tank vest.

All you really need for this DIY is an old tee shirt and ribbon.

Here is what you will end up with.

I actually have not done this DIY yet, but I plan to do it as soon as I find an old tee shirt that I want to cut up.

I love Maegan's DIY and I suggest you all check out her blog.

Cute Ways to Wear...Scarves

There are so many ways to wear scarves. You can wear it as a headband, a belt, tied to your accessories, or even around your neck as, well, a scarf.

So to start off, I found three ways to tie a scarf around your neck, from Omiru.

The first one is called "the fold and loop." The idea is to fold the scarf in half and wrap it around your neck. Then take the side with the ends and pull it through the loop created by the other side. In the end it will look like this.

The second one is called "the basic neck wrap." Just wrap the scarf around your neck and let the ends drop where they may, like this.

The third and final one is called the "the square tie." This one is used with a square scarf. Just take one pointed end and put it in front and tie the ends around your neck.

Go over to Omiru for more on how these simple ways to wear scarves.

I found a few ways to wear scarves in your hair from CelebrityStyleBlog.

This first one is based off the way Kate Hudson wore her headband in Fool's Gold. All you have to do is start with the middle of the scarf, on the back of your head, under your hair. Then you simply cross the scarf in the front and then tie it back underneath again.

The next one has been seen frequently on Paris Hilton or Nicole Richie. Just take a square scarf and fold it down the middle to make a triangle, lay the center of the triangle with the point in the back, and then tie in a knot.

You can also wear a longer scarf, tied around the back, like this...

Or wear a shorter scarf, tied around the back, like this...

Or tie a scarf around the back, like this, which is also popular with Nicole Richie...

For more on ways to wear these scarves, and where you can get them, go to CelebrityStyleBlog.

Other cool ways to wear scarves are as a belt or tied to your purse for and extra touch, as seen here from Splendicity.

...Or tie around your waste

I hope you got some ideas for wearing scarves, as I did.

Get Mischa Barton's Hair

I didn't really know who to feature next, for my celebrity hair how-to. But I was searching Instyle and the first one that came up was Mischa Barton, so she will be the next featured celebrity.

So the first style will come from Instyle. It is the "full, curly side style."

Blow Dryer
Round Brush
Large Curling Iron
Bobby Pins

Step 1: Before blow drying, add a texturizer to wet hair, and then blow dry.

Step 2: Use the round brush, create a lift at the root.

Step 3: Curl small sections around the entire head, with the large curling iron, starting at the middle of hair shaft, instead of the bottom. Also try using different size curling irons.

Step 4: Tease hair at the crown and then pull hair to the side, secure with bobby pins, and spray to secure.

The next one comes from Bella Sugar, and its Mischa's "O.C. soft waves."

Volumizing Mousse
Blow Dryer
Bobby Pins/Hair Clips
Large Curling Iron

Step 1: After washing your hair, towel dry hair, brush, set your part, and work in a palm size of volumizing mousse from roots to ends.

Step 2: Blow dry hair straight and then section hair into about eight even parts and secure them with bobby pins or hair clips

Step 3: Use a large curling iron, on medium to low heat, starting with the undermost layers, but instead of opening the curling iron wrap hair around the barrel and let sit for about seven sections.

Step 4: Instead of brushing your hair out, flip head over and shake out your hair then flip back, and gently finger the curls to relax them into waves.

Step 5: Reset your part and then spray to secure. If you have bangs just brush them lightly to one side and spray that area a little more heavily.

This next style, which is very simple, comes from Sugarscape, and its her "boho twists."

Bobby Pins

Step 1: Pull hair into two twists

Step 2: Secure with bobby pins the same color as your hair

Step 3: Spray with hairspray

This last Mischa Barton hairstyle is from 247 Girl, and its the "low, loose bun."

Hair Elastic
Bobby Pin

Step 1: Part hair.

Step 2: Using your fingers, scoop up hair into a low ponytail that sits at ear level, and fasten with a hair elastic.

Step 3: Wrap and twist hair around the hair elastic to form a loose bun and secure with a bobby pin.

Step 4: Pull individual pieces out from the bun and secure them in place so the ends are hanging free.

Summer Soiree Beauties

Ashley Tisdale looks stunning at A Summer Soiree charity fundraiser in Beverly Hills. The white dress looks great with her tan skin and natural brunette hair. The black accessories she rocks with the white dress top off the outfit really well. I love the outfit all around.

Another Disney Channel star that stepped out for the Summer Soiree charity fundraiser, was Selena Gomez, who looked very age appropriate and pretty, with the simple ensemble she put together. She has more of the opposite look that Ashley Tisdale was going for. Selena looks gorgeous with the black dress against her fair skin.

I love the dress that Tiffany Thorton picked out to wear the The Summer Soiree, but I'm not really feeling the open toed booties she picked to wear with the dress. I do however, like her hair and the turquoise earrings she is wearing. The turquoise complements the orange really well.

What do you think of these Summer Soiree beauties?

Not So Sure About This, Brenda

I think Brenda Song looks pretty in just about everything she wears. Even this dress, which I'm not too fond of. Her hair always looks stunning, and I think she can pretty much pull off any look. I do love her shoes, however, because it makes the pink in her dress stand out more.

What are your thoughts?

Katherine Heigl Looks Beautiful in Blue

Although, I'm not too keen on her hair, Katherine Heigl looked beautiful, as always, at the Late Show where she was promoting her new movie. The beautiful blue dress looks so pretty on her and I like that she chose simple black pumps to match. Like I said, I don't really like the way she did her hair, and I wish she would have kept it blonde.

Hayden Panettiere: Pretty in White

Hayden Panettiere looks gorgeous in this white dress that she picked for the premier of I Love You Beth Cooper. She pretty much looks pretty in everything she wears, though. And I also love the shoes! The red lipstick also tops off the ensemble well. And her hair looks fabulous!

Emma Watson Fights the Rain at Harry Potter Premeire

The rain didn't stop Emma Watson from looking beautiful at the premier of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. She looked pretty and chic in this gorgeous maxi dress, and we can call the umbrella a much needed accessory. At 19 years old, she is growing up beautifully.
