HOW TO DRESS LIKE : KENDALL JENNER I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I am really excited about this new series that I have been starting lately. It's been doing really well lately, and you guys seem to like how to learn to dress like your favorite celebrities. I personally really love this series as well, so I promise to upload more. If you guys have any celebrities in particular that you want to see on my blog, make sure to let me know, and let's just dive right into it!

1) LAY LOOSE



I love this outfit because it is really flattering, yet comfortable. The settle mustard yellow color with the high waisted jeans go well together because you are showing some skin, yet not too much where you feel completely uncomfortable, which is perfect. Add some cute sneakers, or a high quality pair that you can invest in and wear a lot, and throw on some shades and put your hair up in a bun. You only really need some mascara and a lip gloss with a settle tint, and you are out.

2) FORMAL MEETS CASUAL



If you are the type o…

Take a smaller piece of twine, and lay that out. Cut some pieces of paper, and add a black tri…

MERRY CHRISTMAS + GOING TO BOSTON?! LIFE UPDATE I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Merry Christmas guys! I just wanted to drop by and say that I am so incredibly grateful for you guys, and I hope that you have an amazing holiday, and whatever tradition you celebrate, I hope it is just as great as you guys are, and if you don't celebrate anything, I just hope you had a wonderful day in general!

Anyways, as you can tell by the title, I am going to Boston! I am seriously super excited, you guys have no idea. If you have been a neonator for a while, you would know that I am obsessed with cold weather. I am actually going to visit a school, but I will be there for four days!

My plan is to upload a post every day up until the 31, which is when I leave for Boston. I also will not be posting on the 30th, because it's my birthday. I hope you guys don't mind, but don't worry, you will have a lot of posts to read, and I may even upload more than once a day.

I also wanted to let you guys know that I haven't been upload…

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I know that at one point in our lives, we have all wanted to get skinnier, or eat healthy and work out more as our New Years Resolution, and trust me guys, we all have failed. Don't worry, you are not the only one. If you have stuck to your resolution, I seriously am impressed. I do want to go gluten free and workout more, so, I thought that for those who can relate to me, I would show you guys some workout life hacks and DIY's, so let's get started!

1) DAILY EXCERCISE

You will need: 7 Mason jars, popsicle sticks, and sharpies. All you have to do is first, label your mason jars for each day of the week, or at least how many days you plan on working out. Then, with your popsicle sticks, start writing workouts you want to do for each day, and put them in the mason jar. I love this because it is super customizable. If you have work on Monday, you will be tired afterward, so you can do less workouts than another day. That's all you r…

I'M STOPPING BLOGMAS?! I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I just wanted to drop by and say to you guys that I did not upload last night for a reason. I went to a party last night, and afterward, was feeling absolutely terrible and sick, so I decided to get some sleep. I planned on uploading the post I was supposed to upload for Blogmas Day #16, however I was officially sick.

I still feel terrible, and I cannot promise you guys that I will be posting every single day of December. I was seriously so proud of myself by posting every single day, and I'm sad that I cannot post every day anymore. However, I have been getting sick back and forth all month, which is also why I can't promise that I will be posting every single day as well.

Anyways, again, I wanted to apologize, however, I will try my hardest to post every single day. Thank you guys for being so understanding! Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO.

1) GET HOME

Once I get home from school, I drop off my things in my room, and just go onto my bed and check Instagram and Snapchat, and then run upstairs to the kitchen to make myself a snack.

2) STUDY

I like to study afterward, and sometimes bring my snack downstairs while studying for tests and doing my homework.

3) DINNER

Depending on whether my parents or tired or not, I sometimes will make dinner. I like to throw some potatoes and carrots in a pan with olive oil at the bottom, and put those for 400 F for around 30-40 minutes. If they still aren't cooked, I will move them over to a bowl and microwave it.

4) BATHROOM ROUTINE

I then head down to the bathroom to brush my teeth while I turn on the shower. Once that's ready, I…

2) CLASSIC OUTFIT



I love this because it is classic, but bold at the same time. All you really need is a leather jacket, white t-shirt, ripped jeans, and some sneakers. It is seriously so simple, and most people can recreate this outfit by pulling out items from their closet. Pull a section of you…

MORNING ROUTINE : CHRISTMAS EDITION! BLOGMAS DAY #8 I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here, and welcome to Blogmas Day 8! I wanted to do something I have not done in a while, and that is my morning routine, Christmas edition, so let's get started!

1) DRINK WATER

The first thing I like to do in the morning when I get ready for school is drink water. This is such a great idea because it helps you get energized and you are more awake when you start your day.

2) PUT ON MY CLOTHES + GET READY

Honestly, it really depends on the day, whether I wear a cute shirt or sweatpants. If it's a testing day, I like to keep it simple and comfortable. I typically do not wear makeup just because I still am looking for that perfect foundation, so if you guys have any suggestions, please let me know!

Then I just walk quickly down the hall to my bathroom and brush my teeth, brush my hair, and get ready!

3) MAKE BREAKFAST

I want to say that my breakfast changes very frequently, depending on how much time I have to make it, however, when I am waiting a…

HOW TO DRESS LIKE : GIGI HADID BLOGMAS DAY #7 I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here, and welcome to Blogmas Day 7! I recently uploaded a post on how to dress like Selena Gomez, and it ended up being really popular, so I decided to do one of my fashion icons, Gigi Hadid. Let's get started!

1) FORMAL CASUAL



I love this outfit, because you could wear it to multiple events! A casual red carpet to a meeting. Take a long navy, sleeveless, loose vest with a white sleeveless, strapless top. Tuck it into some navy pants matching the color of the vest and some strappy black heels.

2) ADORABLE AIRPORT OUTFIT



If you are the type of person who likes to stay comfortable but dress well on top of that, this is the perfect outfit for you. Take a two piece outfit piece, preferably grey to match the picture up top. If it is a soft material and very stretch, trust me guys, you will be comfortable. Pair it with some white Vans, a comfortable carryon, and throw a denim jacket over the bag and some cute glasses.

3) WORKOUT ATTIRE

5 ITEMS TO ADD TO YOUR CHRISTMAS WISH LIST BLOGMAS DAY #6 I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here, and welcome to Blogmas Day #6! I wanted to share with you guys some ideas on what you can ask for this Christmas, so let's get started!

1) KEURIG



I personally love drinking coffee. Honestly guys, my obsession is unhealthy! If you love coffee just as much as I do, I recommend asking for a coffee machine. I am personally asking for a keurig. This has been on my list for 2-3 years now. They are so incredibly easy to use, and if you are not a fan of coffee, you can also make tea with this machine. They come in all colors, and you can get them from coffee, to amazon, and basically any kitchen appliance store.

2) SPERRY BOOTS



I love Sperry's boots designs because they are so cute! If you love to ski or snowboard, and want the type of boot that you can wear while lounging around a lodge or going out to dinner and you live somewhere very cold, I would definitely recommend investing in a nice pair.

3) TUMBLR CUPS



I love tumblr cups because they a…

WINTER TAG 2016 EDITION BLOGMAS DAY #5 I NEON DOTS

Hi neonators, it's neon dots, and welcome to Blogmas Day #5! As you guys may or may not know by now, I am obsessed with doing tags, so I thought I would do the winter tag, so let's get started!

1) FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCT FOR WINTER



The liquid lipstick trend has been around for a while now, and I am seriously obsessed with my Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick from Bare Minerals, in the shade Bo$$ in particular. On the lips, it is the perfect shade of a dark nude color, perfect for this time of year. They retail for $18 USD.

I don't have a picture of the candle, but I got the best small $3 USD candle from Target in the dollar section. It is a Harvest Sangria candle, and I am obsessed!

1) ORANGE/RED LEATHER JACKET



Having a black leather jacket is a classic fashion item that everyone has lately. When I see women wearing red or orange leather jackets, or even a combo of both, I instantly want to ask them where their jacket is from. If you wear all white underneath, or throw on a t-shirt and some ripped jeans, your jacket can be the pop of color that makes your outfit unique.

If you have been a neonator for a while, you guys would know that I am obsessed with statement necklaces. I think that with a collared shirt, and maybe even a leather skirt, it can really be gorgeous and make an outfit pop.

I know that this trend has been quite popular lately, and these are two…
