Valentine's Day DIY

Why spend money when you can create?

Valentine's Day DIY

Valentine's Day is a holiday known for couples mostly. Every couple I know goes back and forth and BUYS gifts, that either cost a lot of money or look expensive, because they want to show that they "care." The truth is, you can show just as much through simple handmade DIY gifts. In my opinion, that is the most romantic because it shows you care and spend time working on something for the other by yourself with your own hands and creativity.

Here are some ideas if you want to try that for someone, even if they aren't your significant other:

1. A Jar of Reasons WHY You Love Them

Writing down the reasons you love someone goes a LONG way.

2. Mini Handmade Journals

If your valentine loves to write or draw, making them this mini notebook with little special designs that make the other person unique, would be loving and useful for them every day!

3. Customized Photo Frame

Take your favorite picture of you and your valentine and surround it with your own writing-- write a poem, song lyrics, etc. that remind you of the other!

4. Jar of Candies

An assortment of his/her favorite candies might just make their day even brighter!

5. CD Wallet Book

Fill up a CD case with all your favorite pictures of you two together and write about that day the picture was taken as a memory booklet!

6. Personalized Mug

Buying a plain mug of your choosing, whether it's their favorite color or a plain old white mug, write their favorite catch phrase!

Valentine's Day shouldn't have to be a day where you spend an unbelievable amount of money. You'd be surprised how much more love and appreciation the person will show when there was something given to them that took time and effort!

Whether this is for your significant other, your best friend, or anyone you love... All these DIY gifts and more are beautiful thought out gifts!

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
