GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT MY BLOG? Q AND A OF THE DAY WITH NEON DOTS

Hey guys! I wanted to answer a question that many of you may be wondering if you've read my blog posts before: Will I be getting more serious with my blog? I do plan on starting some social media accounts for my blog, for example Instagram, where I could post things that I have bought, mini hauls, outfit of the days, things like that, and a Twitter account possibly? I am the most serious about starting a separate email where you guys can chat with me and businesses can contact me. I think that my blog isn't really getting popular these days, which, to be honest, makes me sad to think that I used to be somewhat of a bigger hit than now, so I'm doing whatever I can to expose it.

Hope you guys enjoyed this blog post. Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

HOW TO SURVIVE HIGH SCHOOL: MAKING FRIENDS

One of the hardest parts in High School is, for example, going to a new school where you have no friends and are all alone at the lunch tables. And trust me, the lunch tables is the best and worst part of school. If you don't have friends, then you don't have a "group". To most people, it's the most important thing, because you do not want to make a bad impression, because nobody will want to hang out with you, and that is the worst. Here is the best trick to instantly become really popular and/or get a lot of friends, whatever your goal is my friend!

Okay, when you first get the opportunity to join any type of club, maybe fashion club, math club, any type of club that you will enjoy, do it! You get to do something that you enjoy and hopefully find a friend that likes the same thing as you, and boom!

Another way is to go to different places around campus, for example the library. You could find a lot of friends there.

Another easy tip is to, and I know this sound…

HOW TO SURVIVE HIGH SCHOOL: YOUR NEW CRUSH

Okay, so you know when you see that really cute guy in your Algebra class or something? #HighSchoolCrush! Congratulations, you have your very first crush in High School! Okay, let's all admit that it's hard sometimes to have a crush because you have to keep it a secret from the rest of the world, other than your friends, and let's be real here... Your mom! Okay, story time. So, last year, there was this really cute new guy in one of my classes, and I am so serious (even though I am tempted to laugh), it was love at first sight! Well, for me... Haha, I know, really lame, but I had my head low, walking into class right before the bell would ring, and once I looked up, there he was! OMG, I was so awkward around him! When everybody was interested in the "new kid", I seriously said, "Hi, I'm ______, the weird one."

What? And I know that this isn't for every guy and girl, but sometimes guys who are more on the shy side tend to like girls who really do…

HOW TO SURVIVE SCHOOL: NEW SERIES + MY STUDYING/HOMEWORK TIPS

Guys, seriously, when I stopped Back to School with Neon Dots, about a month later, I got so many new ideas, tips and tricks, DIY's, everything that could last year all through the year, so I decided to do a new series, called how to survive school, and this series is mostly for middle school. high school, and college girls. The first one that I wanted to do is studying tips, and what I do, and some of them are even new to me, so let's just jump right into it.
1. If you usually forget all of the information to a test before you actually take it, to help you remember everything, while you're studying, chew a different type of gum you usually choose and then before you take a test, chew that gum, or if you're not allowed to chew gum, try a different type of snack you haven't known about before, or haven't tasted before, and then before you go into class, start to eat it and then you'll remember everything.
2. A couple days before you take your test, go onto Q…

EASY AND CUTE NAIL DESIGNS!

Hi guys! I don't know about you, but I am seriously the WORST at doing nails. Like seriously, I will put on nail polish and have to remove it because it looks awful, and I'm always looking at these really cute nail designs on Pinterest that I totally wish I could recreate, so I wanted to show you guys some really easy and adorable nail designs, so let's get started!



•Peach colored nail polish
•Glittered nail polish
•Tape
•Scissors
•Fast drying top coat

All you have to do is first, apply a thin coat of the fast drying top coat onto your fingernails to prep them, which is optional, but I would recommend it. Then apply one coat of the peach colored nail polish, and if your nail polish isn't that thick, then do one or two more coats. Once you did that, put another thin coat of the fast drying top coat. Once you have done that and it's dry, take your tape and cut out a thin piece of the tape to fit your ring finger, and stick it on your ring finger, and then put the gli…

INSIDE TO FALL: OUTFIT, MAKEUP, HAIR, AND EASY AND FUN DIY'S!

Hey guys! This will be a long blog post about everything fall, makeup, hair, outfits, everything, even some DIY's, tips and tricks. This will be long enough, so let's get started!



Eyeshadow:

Take a shimmery white in the corner of your eye, and a light gold color halfway onto the lid, and a more brown color at the end, forming into a black wing. To help you out, you can use scotch tape to get a perfect line.

Lips:

For the lips, I recommend doing a dark lip, but if you have a really sharp cupids bow and you are really bad at applying on lipstick, again, you can use tape to help you out.



•Grey sweatshirt with sparkly elbow patches
•Maroon scarf
•Black leggings
•Black boots

If you want to glue on some elbow patches, you can just totally recreate this look with an old grey sweater and buy a small amount of glittery gold fabric, and cut it out to fit your elbows, and you can really customize it and make it look however you want, different patterns, everything, and you can just use a…

DIY FALL ROOM DECOR

Another DIY! I am just on this type of fling here, I am so sorry! But if you still like me and still like DIY's, and you want to decorate your room for the fall, then keep on reading!



•Glass candle jar
•Twigs about the same size
•Glue gun

This is pretty self explanatory, but take your twigs and glue them onto the glass, and if they are too tall, then you can always cut them, put a candle in, and you have a really cute and simple DIY.



•Wooden plaque (I believe you can get this at Michaels) http://www.michaels.com/walnut-hollow-basswood-country-round/M10057191.html?dwvar_M10057191_color=Unfinished#start=1
•Chalk paint
•Chalk
•Paint brush (one thick, one thin)

Take your plaque and start painting on the chalk paint with your thick brush all over, and use your thin once you painted most of it until you have about half an inch apart from the end of the plaque and the chalk part. PS. Is it even a plaque? Haha, wow, I'm just on it right now! Okay, then let it dry for a couple of night…

WHAT TO DO IF YOU'RE SICK

Hi guys. I remember I did a blog post like this before a while ago, and I like to do these when I'm sick because that's pretty rare, and I like to go and look back and see what I used to do. My list in 2014 was pretty... Bland... Things that were obvious like eat soup and read a book and draw, haha! I just wanted to update on what I do when I'm sick, so let's get started!
1. Check my schools website and email my teachers. I don't know about your school, but personally, my teachers require me to check their sites to make sure that I don't miss any classwork or homework, which I have to do at home so that I don't fall behind, and email them and tell them why I was gone for that day.
2. Watch Netflix... Aka Friends... Ok guys, I have a confession, I am addicted to the show Friends on Netflix, and if you haven't checked it out before, that's your homework. The first episode is okay, but the second and up are the best! Seriously, check it out!
3. Run err…

DIY DESK ORGANIZATION IDEAS

Ok, guys, I've made a lot of DIY's this week, and that's because I am so obsessed with them, so hopefully you guys won't get to sick of them, but today I wanted to do some desk organization ideas, so let's get started!

•Frame
•Patterned paper
•Expo marker
•Washi tape
•Ruler
•Scissors

•Sponge brush

First off, take your frame and you can paint it if you want, but that is totally optional, and take out the back and measure that with your ruler, and sketch that onto your patterned paper, nothing to crazy of course, and sketch the measurements onto your paper and cut that out. Then coat a thin color of modge podge onto the back and slowly aline it to the back of the frame, and once you have that, you can smooth it out for any bubbles, and once more, put a thin coat of modge podge onto the paper, and then you can pop that back into the frame, and you have a whiteboard where you can write anything on it.

2. Fun and organized chargin…

DIY DESK ORGANIZER!

Hello guys! Okay, I don't know about you, but my desk is always messy because I don't really have a place to keep all my things together, so having a desk organizer is great, however, they can be really big or small, and can also be quite pricy. This DIY is taking some different sized cereal boxes or maybe granola bar boxes, and making them into a desk organizer, which is super cheap, and you can adjust the size to your liking, so I don't want to keep you waiting for too long, and let's get started!



-Different sized toilet and towel paper rolls
-Round wooden platform (optional)
-Construction paper
-Washi tape
-Modge podge

-Scissors

Ok, first, take your wooden platform, if you want one, and start painting it with any color of your choice, and once that dries, put a coat of modge podge on it. While everything is driving, start taking your boxes, and you can flatten them out by opening both flaps on the top and bottom, and cut it…

DIY TUMBLR ROOM DECOR IDEAS FOR TEEN GIRLS!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to do a fun blog post for you guys with another DIY blog post, so I hope you enjoy!

1. Framed hearts



•Heart shaped puncher
•Magazine page with an image
•Frame
•Paint (optional)
•Glue gun
•Toothpick

All you have to do is find or buy a frame, and if it's an old one, you can paint it, which is totally optional, but you can do a fun, bright color and it makes it so much more personal and you can make it match your room. Anyways, cut out pieces of hearts from your magazine page, and images are better because they have more color, and you should probably do 10x10. Once you have those out, start gluing them onto your canvas, ps, you may want to sketch out a square lightly with pencil, but if you want it to have more shape to it, then you have to fold the heart in half and then glue the back of the fold and you can pressure the center with a glue gun, if that makes any sense, but if you want it just on it's back, smooth it out when cool to get rid of any bubbl…

DIY'S:

1. Sticky note calendar wall art



-Colorful sticky notes
-Fine point sharpie

All you have to do is find an empty space on your wall and cut out twelve rectangles onto your scrapbooking paper, and cut those out, measuring them with your ruler, and then cut them out and write out all of the months onto the paper with your sharpie. Then, write on the corner of your sticky notes the numbers 1-31 in sharpie, in small print, and aline them onto your wall in the order that you want them to be, and tape your month onto the wall. Even better, using washie tape would be great as well so that you can always remove it, and with your pencil, you can write down reminders like make a milkshake or go for a …
