BTS WITH NEON DOTS: DIY EMERGENCY KIT I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. I am actually stopping in Houston for the day, but I didn't do much, so I thought I would start my traveling series when I actually do something fun and entertaining, so I thought I would just post a regular post, and I've been meaning to do this for a while but forgot. I wanted to show you guys how to DIY your own emergency kit for back to school, so let's get started!

1) BANDAIDS

I swear if you have bandaids at school, you will save yourself and your fellow classmates. Only put in a few because not many people fall down at school, but when they do, you can be prepared, and you can always fill your emergency kit up with more bandaids if you run out.

2) PANTY LINERS

I recommend bringing some panty liners because if you start your period one day and you didn't expect it, then panty liners are great because they are a thin version of pads, so you have a smaller version of a pad and you have time until after school to switch it out after you get home, and seriou…

RESULTS ON COSTA RICA! I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. So today I am sharing the results on what I am going to do in Costa Rica. Unfortunately, I don't believe that I posted it correctly because, just as I was about to write this, I got an email saying that it didn't publish correctly, which was devastating because I had already linked it at the end of almost all of my posts.

So, I thought, I will just have to chose on my own what I'm going to do because I don't have the time to start a new pole and upload that since I am leaving the day after tomorrow. I decided that I am going to do a traveling diary series.

Now you guys know that I cannot promise you that I will upload every single day that I am there because I always tend to just try and enjoy myself and get caught up in doing so many things that I forget to post for you guys, but I will try my hardest.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you guys know. Make sure you follow me on Snapchat for mini videos. I will be showing you guys aro…

HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR HOME: 3 TIPS AND TRICKS I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. Today I wanted to show you guys some organizing tips and tricks on how to organize your home in an efficient way. If you don't know already, I do have an Instagram and Snapchat, where I tell you guys when I post, I do swatches, outfit of the days, fun things like that, so make sure you follow me on those two accounts, they will be at the end of this post. Let's get started!

1) LABEL THINGS IN YOUR PANTRY




When you label things in your pantry, after going to the grocery store, you know exactly where to put things, and everything has a home. I love the font on these containers. It gives this pantry a much more chic look.

2) GET AN ORGANIZED FRIDGE



You can get an organized fridge for a cheap price. Buy some clear containers at the dollar store to store some soda cans and other products that can stand up nicely in a container, like shown in the picture. Also, I have a clear egg carton that I purchased at Target, and it gives my fridge a much more clean look to it. I love …

I GOT A SNAPCHAT + SHOWING WHAT I LOOK LIKE FOR THE FIRST TIME?! I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here! (I'm trying out a new intro... What do we think?) Anyways, today I wanted to tell you guys some exciting news. Obviously the title already gave it away, but yes, I got a Snapchat just for my blog! I actually have one of my best friends Sera to thank, so shoutout to her! I have always been Snapchatting my friends swatches of eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks that I have been loving and fun beauty/fashion things like that.

She gave me the brilliant idea of making a separate account just for my blog, which I thought was a great idea. I do have an Instagram dedicated to my blog, so if you haven't checked that out yet, I will link it at the end of this post, so I thought that it would be a fun to start a Snapchat.

I will be showing you guys some of my favorite makeup products, so some swatches and reviews, mini hauls, and yes, I will be Snapchatting when I am in Costa Rica. Also, I will be filming some mini makeup tutorials and showing you guy…

I HEART SUMMER TAG 2016 EDITION I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. Today I wanted to do the I Heart Summer Tag. I love doing tags, and I only do them once in a while, so when I found out about this tag, I got really excited, so let's just get into it.

1) WHAT IS YOUR DREAM DESTINATION FOR THE SUMMER?

I would love to go to Thailand. I think that Thailand would be so gorgeous, and I would love to go back to Seoul, Korea again if it wasn't so hot there.

2) WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER DRINK?

I love the strawberry banana smoothie from Starbucks without the yogurt, and I like to add protein powder. It is such a healthy drink but so yummy at the same time, but my usual drink from Starbucks is a soy latte.

3) S'MORES OR ICE CREAM?

I feel like I eat ice cream more than I eat S'mores, but both are equally amazing.

4) POOL OR BEACH?

I don't have a pool and the closest beaches are around an hour away from my house, but I do like to swim in pools more than I like going to the beach, just because going to the beach takes a lot of pre…

JULY FAVORITES I NEON DOTS

Hey guys! I know that July is almost over, so I wanted to share with you guys my favorite July favorites. I have a lot of favorites this month, and I usually never do these types of posts, so if this gets to 20 views+, I will do an August favorites next month. Let's get started!

1) OFF THE SHOULDER SHIRTS



As you guys know from my latest Dashin Fashion posts, I have been absolutely loving this trend. I think that it is so cute and great for summer.

2) RAINBOW HIGHLIGHTERS



Rainbow highlighters are so cute. I love highlighters because they give a special glittery effect to your cheekbones, and adding a rainbow look to it makes everything so much more fun.

3) YES PLEASE BY AMY POEHLER



Amy Poehler is one of my favorite comedians, and once I found out that she had come out with a book, I was so excited, and I have never talked about this book with you guys, or at least not that I remember or know of, so I wanted to share with you guys that this is an amazing book, I highly recommend it,…

10 LIFE HACKS EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW I NEON DOTS

Hey guys! Today I wanted to do a life hacks post again. I just wanted to let you guys know that these life hacks aren't just for girls, men can use them too, but these mostly apply to girls, or I think girls could find them more useful than men, if that makes sense. Also, I will link down below my Costa Rica post where you can vote which option you want me to do when I'm there, and you can see the options in that one. Let's get started!

1) NAIL POLISH

We all know that when you do your own nail polish, we all either a, mess up, b, make a mess, or c, find it hard to open the bottle! I don't know about you guys, but I am a weak person, so it is hard for me to open anything with a lid, no joke. Take a rubber band and wrap it around the cap. That way, you have a better grip, and it is easier for you to open the bottle!

2) GUM

I use this life hack so much during school! I almost always have gum around me during school, and surprisingly, girls don't really ask me for gum,…

VOTE ON WHAT I SHOULD DO AT COSTA RICA?! I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. As most of you already know, I am going to Costa Rica on Saturday. Not today, but this upcoming Saturday, and I did a post on it, which I will link at the end of this one.

I wanted to do this post because I wanted to make it easy for you guys to vote on what I should do when I'm in Costa Rica. I can either vlog the experience, and if you don't know what that means, I can film it and show you guys what activities I am doing, stuff like that. And yes, I will be showing what I look like for the very first time!

Option number two is I can do a traveling diary series. I can write about my experience at the end of the day.

Option number three is I do nothing.

If you guys want to vote, you have a week:

I don't believe that you have to make an account to submit an answer, but if you do, it is completely 100% free, you just have to enter your email, make an account, and make a password, so it is really easy, but I just wanted to let you guys know in ad…

5 HEALTHY SUMMER SNACKS I NEON DOTS

Hey guys! So today I wanted to do something different because lately I have been doing so many Dashin Fashion posts, which you guys seem to like, but you guys also seem to like when I show you guys some fun snacks, so I thought, why not show you guys some fun summer snacks to try out. This is the first time I have ever done a healthy summer snacks post, and to be honest, I am shocked! Haha, anyways, let's just get started!

1) FROYO BERRY BITES



•Cupcake tin and liners
•Granola
•Berries of choice
•Yogurt
•Spoon

Put your liners in the cupcake tin and put some granola 1/2 of the way into the cupcake liners and press that in with the back of your spoon, add some yogurt and fill that to the top, and sprinkle on your berries, and pop that in the freezer for a couple of hours, overnight, or until it is completely frozen. These are great to take on the go to work or a day out with some friends. They are so simple to make and so Snapchat and Instagram worthy!

2) APPLE PEANUT BUTTER SLICES

I'M GOING TO COSTA RICA?! I NEON DOTS

Hey guys! Yes, I am going to Costa Rica! I am seriously so excited because my biggest trip just with my family was going to Korea, which was back in December. I know. I have been do several other places as you guys know, for example, LA for the Drama World premier (I will put a link down below so that you guys can watch it because I have been binge watching this show, and all of my friends love it as well) and LA again, which was for Disneyland.

I have never been to Costa Rica, so comment down below if you guys have any suggestions on where I should go, and you have to have a blogger account to comment, or just a Google+ account I believe, so if you want to comment, get either a blogger account or a Google+ account, both are free, but Google+ may be easier. I would love to hear all of your stories and suggestions on where to go to!

If you guys don't know what Costa Rica is or where it is, which most of you probably do, but if you don't, this is Costa Rica:



Obviously this isn&#…

DASHIN FASHION: MY TOP 5 FAVORITE SUMMER FASHION TRENDS I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. There are some summer trends that have been really popular this year that I am loving, so let's get started! PS. Yay for a short intro!

1) OFF-THE-SHOULDER SHIRTS



I love a good off-the-shoulder shirt because it is so comfortable and great to pair with jeans and a bootie. It is so lightweight and easy to wear, and so adorable. It makes a great outfit, and really Instagram worthy.

2) CAT EYE SUNGLASSES



I love cat eye sunglasses. During the summer, it is so sunny outside that you want to protect your eyes from the sun. I feel like cat eye sunglasses give me a little more confidence and makes my outfit more sassy. You can either dress an outfit up or down with these sunglasses, and I just love this trend. I recommend going to Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 when you get a pair, or even Nordstrom, for a more cheaper price, if you want a cute pair for a great price.

3) ROMPERS



I love rompers. They are always in fashion to me, but I wear them more during the summer. They are lig…

RELATABLE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES PT. 3 + STORIES FROM MY CHILDHOOD I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. These types of posts are really popular these days, so I decided to do yet another one, and if you guys like this one, make sure to check part one and two, which will be linked at the end of this post. Also, I haven't posted my back to school haul/video yet because I got even more sick the day I thought that I would go shopping for my supplies, but I will keep you posted on that, so make sure to follow me on Instagram, which will be linked at the end of this post, so that you know when that will be up. Let's get started because this intro is huge!

1) "AND YOU'RE WATCHING DISNEY CHANNEL"

Disney Channel is dead guys; dead. Let's be real. All of the good TV shows are gone. That's So Raven, Lizzie McGuire, Good Luck Charlie, Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana, and so much more, and the best part was when they would say, and you're watching Disney Channel. Where's that? Also, TV shows used to make these sounds when certain things wou…

UPDATE I NEON DOTS

Hey guys! I am back from Disneyland, and I had an amazing time there. Unfortunately, something unexpected happened the day that I left. Now don't be alarmed. Nothing extremely bad happened, but I thought I would give you guys an update, so let's get started.

Okay, so the day that I left for Disneyland, I got sick. I was just sweating all day and I was coughing a lot, I was so tired, things like that. You know when you're sick and when you get into bed and it's cold, but then the next morning you're burning hot? Well, I don't know if it's just me, but when I woke up this morning and that happened, I kind of knew that I was sick.

Now, in the past, when I do get sick, which you guys would know is very rare if you guys have been neonators for a while, I get really sick. It's awful, and I can barely talk, I stay in bed all day, and that lasts for about a week, but every single sign of the flu and/or cold will take a month, until I stop coughing and feel hot …

GOING TO DISNEYLAND ?! I NEON DOTS

Hey guys. Today I am going to Disneyland. I wanted to stay up and make this before I go, but I am, and I will most likely be back around Friday or Saturday, but I may not post until Sunday or Monday because I will most likely be so tired from the trip, but I just wanted to let you guys know.

If you guys want to see some pictures from the trip, I will post some either while I'm there or when I get back to show you guys, so my Instagram will be linked down below. Kisses to my neonators, and see you guys soon!

XOXO,

Neon Dots

FRIENDS ALL OVER THE WORLD! I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators! Okay, I've always considered you guys as my family, and I was looking over at my views and I realized that I am so incredibly grateful for all of you. I have always been grateful for all of you since the day I started blogging, but I really realized how much I've grown as a blogger because of all of you.

I remember getting one view on a post and legit the whole rest of the day, I could not stop smiling. I started blogging because I had a passion for beauty and fashion, and I wanted to share it with the world, and I had been wrestling on the idea for a year, and when I started to get bullied, I kind of knew that it was time, and I didn't know it yet, but blogging was my way of escaping the world and the mean people in my life, and I slowly started gaining friends from all over the world and that made me feel so incredibly amazing.

I remember one day, I was sitting in my room with my friend and I decided to quickly check my blogger account, and I saw that I ha…

1) CRISS CROSS WASHI TAPE NOTEBOOK

•Exacto knife
•Notebook

Start making a criss cross pattern with different washi tapes, overlapping each other, and on the spine, cut the washi tape that is hanging out on the sides.

2) TUMBLR NOTEBOOKS IDEA #1

•Pencil
•Hole puncher
•Mod Podge

Take your notebooks and place them on the cover of your notebook, and make small dashes on where you should use your whole puncher. After you've made all of the small pencil marks, use your hole puncher, and then cut a small line under…
