Get your printed paper and cut a strip out, and grab a bunch of red vines, and tape it around the red vines. You can lay these out on a pan and lay them out for your guests. It only takes a couple of minutes, seriously so adorable and so easy.

RELATABLE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES PT. 2 I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. So, my last relatable childhood memories post was so popular that I decided to do a part two, so let's get started! (Ps. I'm loving these short intro's, but I just know that they won't last...)

1) LUNCHABLES

Lunchables were the cool lunch when I was in the second grade. Legit I had a friend who would bring Lunchables to school ever single day, and I thought he was so cool. Now I only tried a couple of Lunchables before, but I remember them tasting SO GOOD, so I think in the future I may do the Lunchables challenge, where I re-test them, so if you want to see that in a post, make sure to share this.

2) LUNCHABLES #2 AKA KID CUISINE

Kid cuisine is like the fancier version of Lunchables. Now this was a really quick phase that my whole entire school went through when I was in the fourth grade, except me, and back then, people were just starting to separate into cliques, so I guess you could say the cool kids had them, and I never got to try them, but they were co…

Hey guys. There has been so much unfortunate events going on in the world lately, like Christina passing away to the massive shooting in Orlando, so I wanted to take a break for a couple of breaks before I go back to my normal posts, which is what I did, so that is why I haven't been posting too frequently, but I needed to get back on track for you guys, so today I decided to show you guys how to have a bomb camp fire with your friends this summer, so let's get started!

SUMMER SURVIVAL GUIDE: 3 SUMMER MAKEUP LOOKS YOU NEED TO TRY THIS SUMMER I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. Okay, first off, can we talk about how long this title is? This is kind of dope! Anyways, as you guys know, I am going on vacation on Friday to Sunday/Monday. I'll be back home on Sunday but post on Monday or, let's be real, maybe Tuesday, so I am trying my hardest to make up for the week that I was gone and the days that I will be missing this week, if that makes sense, so I am trying to post as much as possible in one/two nights, so let's just get started!

1)



Face:

First, you want to apply a CC or BB cream as a primer for your face, and then apply some foundation all over your face. Then, apply some concealer under your eyes, on your cheek bones, forehead, and wherever else you usually apply your concealer on. Then, use some eyeshadow primer to insure that all of your eyeshadow stays on all day, and set everything with powder, and fill in your brows.

Eyes:

Use a very settle beige color for your main color, and apply that all over your lid. Then, apply a bronzy,…

UPDATE: TRAVELING + WHY I HAVEN'T BEEN POSTING I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. I have been gone for, I want to say a week or so, and I thought that I owed you guys an explanation, so this post will be all about why I have been gone and where I am traveling to this summer, so let's get started!

Basically, I have been working on multiple posts all at once lately since I am traveling, but I have been playing a lot of tennis and what not, and once I actually get back to my house, I am really exhausted. Also, writing multiple blog posts at the same time is somewhat challenging, but I have been trying my best to balance it all for you guys. I have a lot of really exciting posts coming up so I am taking the time tonight to just write everything, hopefully in time before I go on my vacation.

This Friday, I am heading down to an area around Tahoe with my friend and another family, and I am extremely excited, and I will be there until Monday, and I don't believe that there will be any wifi, and if there is, I don't think that I will actually have the…

RIP CHRISTINA GRIMMIE I NEON DOTS

Hi guys. Today I wanted to post a more serious post, dedicated to Christina Grimmie. If you don't know who Christina is, she was a famous singer, YouTuber, and was on the Voice. She was such an amazing person, and when I found out that she died, I literally stopped, and started crying.

Christina was shot when she was signing autographs for fans, which was such an amazing thing to do, and after her brother tackled the shooter, he shot himself, and I don't know how somebody could be so shallow to do something like that to her. He literally went up to her at her meet and greet, and she had open arms, and he shot her, and I honestly am disgusted with this person, even though they passed.

I have always loved singing, and it all started in the first grade. I remember listening to her music and she gave me the confidence to actually sing in front of people, and now singing is one of my favorite hobbies, and I do it all the time. She was the reason that I started to really get into mu…

You know what I'm talking about. It's one of the many hardest struggles in the world for girls, so I wanted to show you guys how to get over a guy!

1) INVITE A FRIEND OVER, GET ICE CREAM, AND TALK

Get your best friend who knows you better than anyone in the world, get some ice cream, and just talk and cry your eyes out. This person cannot judge you because you guys have seen each other at the best and worst moments, and they understand what you're going through because they know you well. Once you talk about your feelings with somebody else, and you actually say it out loud, it feels so great.

2) WRITE IN A DIARY/JOURNAL

The best way to get over somebody is to also write about it. Write y…

5 LUNCH IDEAS I NEON DOTS

Hi guys. I know that a lot of you guys are in school, and since summer is coming, you are going to have to make your own lunch, because, personally, most of my friends and myself eat the school lunch provided, and I am not used to making my own lunch, so I wanted to show you guys some fun lunch ideas that you can make at home, so let's get started!

1) CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD WRAP



•3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
•2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
•6 slices cooked bacon, chopped
•1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
•1/4 cup croutons

Add the first five ingredients to a medium bowl and mix in the caesar dressing until it is evenly coated, and spoon the mixture into the tortilla wraps and enjoy. If you don't have time or you are running late you can make a pre-bought caesar salad or any type of salad you want, and then put it in the tortilla wrap so that you can customize it to any salad wrap you like.

LIFE HACKS FOR LAZY PEOPLE I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. Today I wanted to show you guys some life hacks for lazy people. I am probably the most laziest person there is out there, and seriously, I could use all of these, and don't worry, if I can do these life hacks, you can too, so let's get started.

If you have a zit, just put some honey over the zit and cover that with a bandaid, and let that sit overnight, and it will be gone and seriously, when I go to school with a zit, it is really embarrassing.

2) MATHWAY

mathway.com will let you enter any type of equation and walk you through it step by step. That way, if you are having any trouble, you learn it and understand it.

Okay, I can't try this because I am not at an airport, but when you are, add "?.jpg" at the end of any URL to bypass the expensive WiFi and access the internet for free.

4) CLOTHES ON TV

If you want to find clothes that celebrities wear on TV, just go onto wornontv.net and you can find your favorite characters outfits,…
