DIY SPRING ROOM DECOR I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. It has been a minute since I have done a DIY room decor post, and I honestly miss them so much, so I thought that I would do a fun spring edition post for you guys. If you want to see more DIY related content, share this post and let's get started!

1) LIGHTBULB PLANETARIUM (UPCYCLE DIY)



•Old lightbulbs
•Twine
•Small rocks
•Fake small plants

You can find the twine, small rocks, and fake small plants at any local craft store. Personally, I am one to kill plants and it's honestly terrible, so if you cannot take care of a plant like myself, pick up a fake plant. This is great because you can reuse your lightbulbs. Fill 1/4 of it with small rocks. When you are halfway done with filling it up with the rocks, put in your fake plant, and put the rocks around the plant afterward. Screw back on the top, and wrap some twine around the 'lid' or the top part of the lightbulb. I think this would be super cute next to a window!

5 LIFE HACKS FOR HOT DAYS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Because it is spring, the hot weather is rolling in, so I thought I would share with you guys some life hacks for hot days thank you can use during the spring or summer, so let's get started!

1) ICED COFFEE



If you are a coffee drinker like myself and you are obsessed with ice coffee, also like myself, here is a great life hack for you!

All you'll need for this life hack is:

•Ice cube molds
•Pre-made coffee

Make the same coffee you are going to have the next morning, and pour the coffee in ice cube holders, and pop that in the fridge overnight. The next morning, I would recommend making your coffee, letting it sit until it's room temperature, and popping that in the fridge until that is cold. You can also make another cup of coffee the night before and keeping that in the fridge if you want it extremely cold and you are running late the next morning. Put in the ice cubes and you are good to go!

I love this life hack because I find tha…

5 FASHION MUST HAVES : SPRING EDITION I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I wanted to show you guys some of my Spring fashion must haves, so let's get started!

1) PLEADED SKIRTS



I think layered, pleaded skirts are extremely adorable. You can wear them with a fitted jacket, a t-shirt, and some heels and a fun statement necklace. Skirts are great for spring, and I also personally love textured clothing, which is why I wanted to mention this in this post.

2) PRINTED ROMPERS



I absolutely love rompers, and wear them all the time during the spring and summer when the hot weather rolls around. They are extremely comfortable and adorable, and you can pair them with simple Keds, or heels. You can dress them up or dress them down and they are honestly so adorable.

3) PRINTED MINI SKIRTS



Another item that I think you could pair with many items is printed mini skirts. I have been seeing these around a lot, and they are starting to become a trend. I have seen them being paired with thin long sleeves, t-shirts, over-the-knee bo…

ULTIMATE COACHELLA GUIDE : ESSENTIALS, LOOK BOOK, TIPS + TRICKS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I am extremely excited for this post because this is the ultimate Coachella guide. You want some hair, makeup, or outfit ideas? You got it, and you can find out my Coachella essentials and some tips and tricks. I am going to stop talking, and let's get started!

LOOK BOOK:

1) OUTFIT



I love this outfit because it is so different from all of the other 'basic' Coachella outfits, which is typically boho tribal print pants or shorts, a crochet halter, sandals, and most importantly, the flower crown. The great thing about this outfit is that all of these items you can buy for great prices.

To recreate this, you will need:

•Denim vest (you can DIY one by cutting off the sleeves of an old denim jacket, and fray the sleeves for a more distressed look by using tongs)
•White t-shirt/crop top
•Flowy shorts (if they don't come with small tassels, you can buy ones from a craft store that match your shorts and glue them on with fabric glue)
•Ban…

DIY LIFE HACKS : PACKING I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today, I am going to share with you guys some DIY life hacks that you can try out when you are packing for a trip, so let's get started.

1) SHOE IN SHOWER CAP



All you have to do is take a shower cap and make sure to turn it inside out so that you can still use it. Place your shoes inside the shower cap to minimize space and keep your shoes apart from your other clothing. You can also fold your socks and place them in the shoes.

2) MEDICINE BOX JEWELRY HOLDER



Take a medicine box, which you can get anywhere for an extremely cheap price, and place in your jewelry that you want to wear that week, or even place the jewelry in the designated day you want to wear it. Make sure you hear the click for every flap so then your jewelry doesn't fall out. If you want to ensure that nothing falls out, you can wrap the side horizontal with a big rubber band.

3) BAG YOUR CLOTHES



You can buy any large bag that you want. If you are on a budget, buy big zip…

2) BUNNY WREATH



•Round styrofoam ring

Wrap your fluffy boa's around the ring, until you cover it up, and glue down the ends. Cut the ears off of the headband and glue them onto the top.

This is an easy, fun activity to do with friends. Place the sticker in the center of your egg an…

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY AND ENERGIZED DURING TESTING I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. If you guys are in school, and have trimesters, you would know that finals are coming up soon. Finals are essentially during the last semester or trimester of school, when you have to do tests for classes, important assignments, big projects, and occasionally, state testing.

You guys will be getting a lot of testing content from me, so get ready, and let's get started!

1) GET SLEEP!

I know that this is an obvious, but this is extremely important. I cannot stress how many times I have stayed up late nights to just study in general or finish homework, because I am the biggest procrastinator on the planet. If you do not keep on sleeping, and you rely on caffeine, you will legit become a walking zombie the next day at schoo…

TRAVELING DISASTER : STORY TIME I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I'm sorry that I haven't uploaded on Friday like I promised to, however I have a quite interesting explanation.

This whole entire weekend, including Friday, I was flying out to Chicago, where I had a three hour layover, and then to Toronto, Canada. During the weekend, I did fun things with my mom and some other stuff. Fast forward to Monday.

I had arrived at the airport around twelve pm. I was supposed to wait around four-five hours. I ended up waiting six-seven because they pushed our flight two hours because of storm stella. If you guys have not heard about storm stella yet, there is a huge storm hitting the east coast of the US, along with some parts of Canada.

During the airport, I wanted to see if there were any flights that night, because our flight from Chicago to California, we wouldn't have made. They essentially said that we could stay on a waiting list for an extremely late flight that night, but the chances of us getting …
