Hey there! I’m Rosemarie Leon, creator of The Bamboo Cookhouse and fellow thrifty DIYer and busy bee.

If you’ve ever said any of the following:

  • “I don’t need to buy this, I’ll just make it myself.”
  • “I’m always working on a project.”
  • “I DIY so we have extra money to travel!”
  • “I can totally make that for you.”

… then you’re in the right place!


I started The Bamboo Cookhouse waaaaaay back in 2009. These were my pre-Pinterest days and I wanted a way to keep track of and journal all of my home decor and crafting projects.

Then, along came Elizabeth in 2012 and in came the family-oriented content.

The Bamboo Cookhouse is all about the DIY and creative life. From thrifting, to crafting, to family adventures, you will find all of this and more!

My personal issues

One of the most difficult adjustments a woman must make based on her age is figuring out her hair. Due to changes in hormones and body functions, women often lose hair, turn white and lack luster. As women age, medium-length hairstyles for women over 50 is a good choice. Regardless of your face shape, it’s not wrong to have the incision between your chin and a few inches below your shoulder.

Finding the perfect shoulder length cut that suits you depends on your hair texture, face shape and lifestyle, but taking these three factors into account at the same time, you can put on a beautiful hairstyle and make yourself feel like yourself.
