We all love a good home remedy for our hair that doesn't break the bank, so this avocados and Vitamin E mask is perfect! The creators of this Mega Moisture Mask suggest using the mystically efficient Magic Bullet blender to mix this one up. But you can also try a food processor or a handheld mixer to get it to a creamy, conditioner-like consistency. Whip it up and enjoy! Just try not to eat it first. Mix it, mix it good: 1. Split an avocado, remove the seed and ... Read More

Start with a pump-style shoe with a 4" heel or higher (ours is the Mixx Rosemary Green Patent Pump, from lulus.com); any lower, and you won’t be able to see the design underneath very well. To add spikes, first use a wipeable marker to mark dots on the back of the shoe where you want each spike to be. (Note that the spikes should be placed only in the shoe’s upper; you don’t want to drill into the actual heel.) You can use a variety ... Read More
Your friend is cooking up a Halloween costume that involves cardboard, a yard of metal sheeting, and a dozen wire hangers; it may look cool, but there’s a good chance she won’t be able to sit down or hold her drink all night. You, on the other hand, will be sitting pretty in this simple mask, which you can make from household supplies in only an hour or two. Keep the rest of your costume minimal—and keep your hands free for holding your beer. ... Read More
Picking a costume for Halloween is hard work, if you take it seriously (which I do, thank you very much). Finding the perfect balance of funny, interesting, and comfortable to walk around in is incredibly difficult.

That’s why the blog “Take Back Halloween!” is so incredible. Its mission is to “take back” ... Read More

But who wants to spend money on what’s essentially sticky paper? Here’s how to make your own strips. Combine one tablespoon of unflavored gelatin with one to two tablespoons of milk. Microwave for about 10 seconds until the mixture becomes liquid, then stir and smear on your ... Read More
Hi, all! I’m Maggie, one of BUST’s brand-spanking-new blog interns, and I’m moving into a new apartment.  This week, in fact! This is an awesome thing because it’s gigantic and sunny and in a neighborhood that I love. Also, my current abode is a subterranean nightmare, and boy, oh, boy, am I excited to GTFO. The new pad, although free of rats and creepy landlords, comes with its own, ahem, peculiar charms. Like low ceilings! Pink ... Read More
  We bet you didn't know that while tea is cleansing for the body, it can also serve as a cleaning product for your home. Black tea has tannic acid in it, which dissolves dirt and grease--so it functions as an environmentally safe and super-cheap window cleaner. Avoid those poisonous chemicals, and get your streaky windows looking sparkly with a cleaner that's safe enough to drink. This recipe, from networx.com, is so simple, you can make today after ...
