TIE THE KNOT: BINDER ORGANIZATION AND USING A PLANNER FOR WEDDING PLANS

Hi guys. Do I even have to say that I'm starting a wedding series? Not really. Anyways, for all of those brides to be out there, if you stay around and check out my blog daily (I usually post daily BTW), you will find a lot of cool stuff here like DIY's, some inspiration, everything you could imagine, so let's hurry up and get started!


PART 1: BINDER



Okay, if you are an organizing freak or you want to become that person, then I suggest using a binder. You can even print pages to help you. I suggest using dividers and labeling each one to be organized by month, for example, if you're wedding is in a year, you can say 12 months, 11 months, and choose a couple of things you need to do that one month.

Here are some free printables to use in your binder : http://www.printableweddingplanner.com/

PART 2: PLANNER



Erin Condren, my favorite brand for planning, has a million planners for weddings. I think that this is a great idea to use a planner because if you are the type of p…

FAVORITE YOUNG YOUTUBE MOMMIES 2015 EDITION!

Hi guys! So I wanted to share with you guys some of my favorite YouTube mommies. I don't believe I have done a blog post about this but if I remember during 2016 towards the end of the year, I will add onto this list. I feel like young moms on YouTube don't have as much subscribers as they deserve, and I wanted to help spread the word about their channel. Some of them actually are quite popular, yet they don't have as much as some do, so let's hurry up and get started!

HayleeAndFamily - I found Haylee of of 2011teenagemom's video (AKA Vanessa) and they did a box swap together. I started watching Haylee's videos and they were so entertaining. She posts a lot of random videos, from vlogs, to DIY's, and things like that. Her daughter Hazzel is so precious and I have been loving watching her grow during 2015, and her family is just so great. And the great thing is she posts very frequently. She is also in a relationship with an awesome man named Randy, who is n…

HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR STICKERS FOR PLANNING WITH ACCORDION FILES! PLANNING 101

Hi guys! So, if you are messy like me, and you seriously can never organize anything, but you have about a billion stickers for your planner, then keep on reading. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm always messy. In fact, I like cleaning, but I'm very lazy, and I tend to nap instead of clean most of the time. Anyways, let's get started! PS. Everything that I talk about in my planning posts are all based off of the Erin Condren life planners. (If you want to buy your own, I will have her site linked at the end)

ACCORDION FILES

You can literally buy really cheap accordion files either at the dollar section of Target or at the dollar store, and you can buy really cute colors like pink and what not, if you are trying to stay on a budget, which I talked about last time. (I will link all of my planning posts at the end of this one!) Basically, if you have no idea what an accordion file is, basically it's like an accordion that has files that you can label, and mos…

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

OMG guys, it's Christmas! AHH! I love you guys so much, literally you have no idea how grateful I am for you guys. Seriously, blogs these days aren't that popular because we have YouTube, and the fact that I get so many views per day is crazy. Most of you guys actually aren't new, but you check my blog daily, which seriously makes my day.

It's crazy that only one post that I make could go viral in the blogging world. My neonators are the best, and I consider you guys family, not fans, not friends, but family, and seriously, the neonator fam will dominate the world one day, wearing the best outfits, hair and makeup on point, and the best DIY's in our hands, I promise!

I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! Have a great Christmas! Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

WHERE CAN YOU FIND CHEAP PLANNING STICKERS? PLANNING 101

Hi guys. I haven't done a planning post in a while, so let's get started!

Okay, so if you do have an Erin Condren planner, like most, then you should know that a lot of people sell stickers that can fill in the vertical weekly layouts, as well as other fun stickers. (I will link where you can get your own Erin Condren life planner at the end of this post)

If you are like me and you want to get on a budget for planning, then let me show you where you can find really cheap stickers for your planner.

1) ETSY

Etsy sells so many planning stickers, and for great prices. For example, all you have to do is search 'planning stickers' and you will literally find so many stickers. Check out 'Red Lyrics' shop. She has really cute animal paper clips and planning stickers, and they're so cute, and she actually has a lot of floral themes, and I love floral. https://www.etsy.com/shop/RedLyrics?ref=l2-shop-header-avatar

I also love 'Scribbles Printables' shop. She s…

LOSE WEIGHT FAST AND EASY! TIPS AND TRICKS

So, you know how you always plan to lose weight, but literally right after you go on a jog around your street, you plop onto your couch with exhaustion and start eating your huge bag of Lays chips? Okay, is that just me? Because I'm pretty sure that almost everybody can relate to that. You know what you're doing but you really don't care. I started running with my friend last summer and after two or three runs, we both gave up and went to go get In & Out, so... If it's your New Years resolution to lose weight, then stay here. Let's get started! 
1) GET EXCITED
If you get excited about losing weight, then you'll want to do it every single day. The reality is that you see people working out on YouTube and Pinterest, and you get excited, and it does not work out for you, or it's not as fun as you thought it would be, but if you keep on seeing inspiration, you will obviously want to do it once more. I suggest searching up inspirational images of the body th…

KOREA UPDATE!

Hi guys. So I basically needed to do an update for you guys. So, I did arrive to Seoul a couple days ago, and basically, I've been shopping for the last two days straight. Yup, that's the honest truth guys. And I've been way too lazy (and sick) to pick up my computer and write a post, but I forced myself to do it today, so you're welcome! LOL. But happy christmas eve and I will post tomorrow (probably cry over how grateful I am for you guys). Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

KOREA, HERE I COME!

Hi guys. So, as you may know already, I am going to Korea tomorrow! I am seriously so excited, I cannot breath. Okay, I can breath, but you know what I mean! I have basically been packing all day and it's going to be freezing, but I am fine with that because I love cold weather. This is the last time you will be hearing from me while I am still in CA. I seriously cannot wait, and I will try my hardest to post, and yeah! Wish me luck! Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

WHAT'S ON MY IPHONE!

I wanted to do this post for so long, and obviously I'm super bored, if you can not tell by now, so let's just get started.

Starbucks app- Basically, the Starbucks app is a gift card to Starbucks but on your phone and seriously guys, if you are always in a rush but you need coffee to keep you energized, you want to get this app because everybody keeps their phone with them everywhere.

Instagram- Okay, I don't really need to explain this app, but I'll just tell you that I'm planning on making a fashion account for you guys, or like basically an account for my blog, so we'll see about that, but for now, I just have my private account, which I won't say, because it gives away my name.

Tubex- So, I was once deleting all of my apps and I accidentally deleted YouTube, and I tried to download it again but it will seriously not let me and it's so annoying, so I have to use Tubex, which you could say is like YouTube, but it's so much more annoying.

SWEET TREATS!

It's gone to the point where I basically start a new series every single week... So, you guys get the hint, but if you're not the smartest person, like myself, I'm basically starting a food series because I'm always giving you guys recipes and I decided, why not just start a series. I am just going to take some recipes from my food board on my Pinterest account (I will link both at the end of this post) so let's get baking and, most importantly, eating!
1) STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKES CUPCAKES

•Cupcake mix of choice •Cupcake tin •Cupcake liner •Strawberries
All you have to do is basically put the liners into the tin and then follow the recipe on the back of your box, or you can use a homemade cupcake recipe, and pour the liquid about 3/4 of the way into the liners, and before putting that into the oven, first, cut the ends of your strawberry, and stick that inside your mixture, and put that into the oven. Basically, follow the recipe on the back of your box and you can ad…

KOREA DIARY SERIES: YES OR NO? UPDATE ON TRAVELING SERIES!

Hi guys. So, if you don't already know yet, I am going to be traveling to Korea on Monday for ten days for my birthday/Christmas. I am so excited because it's my first time and I just want to endorse the... Kimchi... SO, anyway, I always never do traveling diary series because they really just take away from me trying to enjoy where I am. I also feel like I'm pressured, and traveling should be a fun thing.

I can not promise this at all, so please do not expect anything from me, but I will try my hardest to post for you guys because I feel like I owe you guys, but I'm mostly probably going to post maybe every other day, or only a couple of times, and some normal posts in between.

I also want to try something new and take pictures and post them for you guys. Probably won't work out but let's see. I really just want to enjoy it, you know? Without having to post so much, so I will try and post, but not as much as I usually do. I hope you guys are okay with that!

HOLIDAY LOOK: PINTEREST INSPIRED - FASHION, MAKEUP, AND HAIR!g

Hi guys. I am back and it feels like I've been gone forever. I missed writing to you guys! And I thought you know what, I'm already done studying and I'm done having a break from you guys and I wanted to do something big by combining three things. Fashion, makeup, and hair! And before we start, I realized two things. I've been spelling Mod Podge wrong the whole entire time and said Modge Podge, so that's embarrassing, and number two, Selena Gomez calls her fans her neonators! Is that seriously true because I had no idea. Ok, like I always say, let's get started!
1) Fashion

•White knit sweater •Red and black flannel •Jeans •Nude colored pumps •Chain necklace •Gold watch •Bracelets
2) Makeup

First, take a shimmery silver/gold color and apply that on your eyelid, and then above that, you're just going to take a darker purple and apply that on your crease, and at the end, first take a piece of tape and aline that from the end of your eye to the corner of your b…

TAKING A BREAK FOR A WEEK?!

Hey guys. Okay, it's that time. The week before all the tests come rolling in. If you're still in school, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Tbh, I have four tests, two in one subject, and nobody feels ready, and I really need to focus on homework and studying. I haven't posted in a couple of days and I do feel really bad but I have to take a break for a week. I'm not saying I won't completely be posting for a whole entire week, I just can't promise anything. SO sorry guys but I will be back ASAP! Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

WINTER WONDERLAND TAG 2015 EDITION!

Hi guys! I haven't posted in a couple of days, so I wanted to do the Winter Wonderland Tag 2015 Edition for now, until I can think of an idea to post for you guys, and I don't believe I've done this before, so let's get started!

1. What is your favorite part of winter?

First off, my birthday, because every single year, my family and friends are always spoiling me around this time of year, and I'm not happy for the gifts, although I am, I'm mostly happy that I get to spend time with my family and friends and I realize the most around this time of year that I should be so grateful for all of them, and I truly am. I also love Christmas. Just snuggling in your PJ's with your family and drinking hot cocoa while your dog is right next to you (Jo Jo in this case obviously) and opening your presents. I also love the traditions my family has, for example, we always travel around this time of year, and you guys know that I am going to Seoul for my birthday, and I cou…

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2015!

Hi guys! So, today I wanted to do a gift guide for Christmas because we all know that when you're writing a list for Christmas presents to get your friends, you seriously don't know. You know what I mean. You know them well, but you want to get something better than they get you, but at the same time, you want something grand... You know what I mean, trust me. Before we get into the post, I wanted to mention that none of this is sponsored. I don't even have an email for this blog yet, although I am planning on getting one in the near future, we'll see, so I just wanted to clear that up, so, like I always say, let's get started!

QUOTE OF THE DAY

I haven't done a quote of the day in a while, and I recently got a mini quote book, and I absolutely love it. It really helps me keep on going, and it is called Reach For the Stars, and my dear friend Maddy (shoutout to her), she gave it to me so thank you for that, and let's just start off with the first quote.

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face." -Eleanor Roosevelt

I hope you guys enjoyed that, and if you would like to send me any quotes, use the #qotdneondots on Instagram, and I may use it as well if I run out of quotes in the book. Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

PLANNING 101! RAINBOW COLORS

Hi guys! Okay, no question about it, going to start a planning series, because I love having a planner with me. It's so useful, and I wanted to help you guys get more organizing, and I do have an organizing series, but I had to make a separate series because I thought that I would be doing a lot of these, and might as well make it it's own. How this is going to work is, I have a Pinterest board and I will be adding onto it, and I'm going to pull some inspiration from that. I will always link my board and you can see the planning section, so let's get started!

So today, I pulled out a picture from my board, and found this really fun and colorful spread that I love, and even though it is the holidays, some people love to have color with them all year round.



You can always print out some images on sticker paper. There are also a lot of Etsy shops that sell stickers, and some templates on my board. Also, they have YouTube stickers, To Do, and things like that, and I love u…

DIY CHRISTMAS SNACKS PART 1

Hi guys. I haven't done a snack post since Summer I believe, and I thought, we have to bring it back, but obviously, since Christmas is coming up, what other post should I have done other than this one? Although, you guys probably knew it was coming. Okay, let's get started!

1) MARSHMALLOW POPS

•Marshmallows •Melted chocolates •Crushed candy canes •Candy canes
Stick the candy cane into the marshmallow and dip it in 3/4 of the way into the chocolate and sprinkle some crushed peppermints, and you're done.
2) STRAWBERRY CHRISTMAS TREES



•Strawberries
•Green melted chocolate
•White sprinkles
•White frosting (In bag with thick tip)
•White star
•Oreo
•Toothpick

Stick a toothpick in the bottom of your strawberry and dip that in the chocolate, and rotate it while slowly sprinkling some white sprinkles and put a white strawberry on top, and put that aside in the freezer, and put some icing on the oreo, put the strawberry on the oreo, and you have this adorable snack.

3) SPRINKLE ORE…
