MOM'S CORNER : DESIGN A PLAYROOM! I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I wanted to do a series just dedicated to mom's, so I thought that I would help the mom's out there who have a very cluttered, dirty playroom. I think it's time to give your playroom a makeover, so let's get started!

1) DESIGN A VISION BOARD
Go onto photoshop or any other application where you can create a vision board. Add images of colors, certain items, and the overall design pieces that you want to include in your playroom and print it out. This way, when you are shopping for your furniture, you can reference to your vision board to stick to your initial plan.
2) BUY A STORAGE UNIT

Add some wired baskets to your storage unit to hold books, crayons, and toys as well. This way, you can also buy labels so that your kids can pick out their certain toys and they are able to see where they are as well.
3) GLASS WHITEBOARD
If you are really concerned that your kids will get crayons and what not all over your walls, you can have a gl…

NOVEMBER FAVORITES I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here, and today I am here to tell you guys my November favorites. I love doing my monthly favorites for you guys, and although I don't have much to share with you guys, I am obsessed with these three products, so let's get started!

1) TUMI STRIPED BACKPACK



I got this backpack from Nordstrom a while ago and I have been loving it. The size is extremely convenience when I'm going out with friends and I don't want to carry my purse with me. It is super comfortable and durable to wear. I love that it is so easy to clean off as well. There is a lot of pocket space and pockets to put my belongings in inside. I would highly recommend this backpack!

2) KATE SPADE TUMBLR POLKA DOT CUP



I am obsessed with this cup that I got at Kate Spade. I personally love tumblr cups because they are so easy to bring around at school and what not. I love the pattern and it is surprisingly really high quality.

3) BENEFIT COSMETICS GROOVY KIND-A-LOVE PALETTE

HOW TO DRESS LIKE : SELENA GOMEZ + I CHANGED MY FORMAT BACK?! I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today I am addressing how you can dress just like Selena Gomez. If you are a big fan of Selena, you love her style just as much as I do, and I have so many more style icons that I bet you guys are obsessed with as well, so this will be a new series, which I am very excited about, and if you are wondering, Dashin Fashion isn't going anywhere, don't worry!

I am also going to be talking about why I changed my format of my blog back to the old version! Essentially, my viewership was going down and I was wondering, wow, this is really strange. It was a very quick change that I wasn't expecting, so I looked to see what I thought would be the problem, and I seriously wondered if it was the new format. It wasn't easy to work with and I think that this format is more easy to access.

You guys can chose your own format for my blog and customize it to your liking, and if you bookmark it, it will stay that way, if that makes sense. Anyways, l…

HOW TO : PREPARE THE BEST THANKSGIVING I NEON DOTS

Hi neonators, it's neon dots here and today I thought that I would show you guys my tips and tricks on how to prepare the best Thanksgiving. The holiday is coming up, and being the blogger that I am, I wish that I could instantly go to Christmas posts (trust me, you will see a lot of content from me in December) but Thanksgiving deserves to have at least a couple of posts dedicated to the holiday, so let us get started!

1) GET A PLANNER/NOTEBOOK AND TAKE NOTES

I know that this may sound ridiculous, but you want to get a really cute, high quality planner because you will be using this quite frequently throughout the process. After you get your planner, take notes of what you want your dinner plan to look like. You may want to do a quick draft before clarifying your plans.

If you plan to call cabins, I would say do it as soon as you are able too, or call hotels and what not in advanced before they get booked. By the way, if they are booked, you can blame me! I should have posted thi…

5 TYPES OF GIRLS IN NOVEMBER I NEON DOTS

Hi neonators, it's neon dots here and today I am going to be showing you guys ten types of girls in November, so let's get started!

1) THE OCD GIRL

This girl is the type of girl who could practically be carrying a clipboard with her everywhere she goes. She wants everything to be perfect, and is the type of person who goes from holiday to holiday. Watch out for this girl because if you mess up one of her perfect Thanksgiving arrangements, you will have to pay for it later.

2) THE CHRISTMAS GIRL

This girl is well known throughout the school for being ready for Christmas. Thanksgiving? What is Thanksgiving, because to this girl, from the last day to October to the first day of November, it's full on holiday mode. Her room looks like Santa Clause came and threw up all around it. Lights, more than one wreath, and signs covering each wall... But secretly, I feel that everyone can relate to this girl...


3) THE MAKEUP FREAK

To this girl, makeup is her whole entire life. The more …
