DIY Snowflake Decor


Hey guys! Today is Monday, and also the official start of my Winter posts! Yay! :)
So for today's post I will be showing you guys how to make these really simple snowflakes and then show you how you can decorate with them! (And if you saw the last post then you probably already knew what today's post was going to be about.) So without further adieu...Let's get started!

How to make a paper snowflake:
Step 1:
Gather your supplies:
A pair of scissors, and a square sheet of paper. 
Step 2:
Start by folding your paper into a triangle. Then fold that triangle into a smaller triangle.
Take your scissors and cut triangles going up each side. (As shown in the picture.)
Step 3:
Finish cutting by cutting triangles on the last side of your triangle. (Sorry my instructions are a little confusing but please look at the pictures for more information.)
Step 4:
Finish off your snowflake by unfolding it. And now you have a beautiful snowflake. And you can do any kind of design because snowflakes are all different.









How to decorate with them:

Step 1:
Gather your supplies:
Thumb tacks, and a bunch of paper snowflakes.








Step 2:
A way you can hang your snowflakes is to tack them to your wall,cork board, or closet. 
I love hanging them in patterns but you can decide how you want to hang them.







Step 3:
Or you could use your snowflakes to put underneath jars or mugs. And it will look really cute!










And that's it! I hope you enjoyed today's post! Come back for next weeks post! Let me know in the comments what you think about today's post! (Also could you guys write in the comments happy birthday  because it is my brother's birthday today! :) HAVE A GREAT DAY and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl

Third, I have my notepad and my pen. You might have seen this notepad in a back to school haul I did back in September or August. (If you remember seeing it comment below "BTS!") And last but not least I have my hand-sanitize in the scent Paris from bath and body works. Because you never know when you might need your hands clean! 
And those are the things I have in my bag to show you! As I said before I don't carry very much in my bag. Let me know what Winter posts you would like me to do because the start of my Winter posts start next week!! And I am super excited! And now for the sneak peek......

    My Outfit Of The Day


    Hey, guys! Today is Monday and for today's post I wanted to share with you guys my outfit of the day. Basically what I wore today. I got this idea from one of my great friends BloggerA. She started a series on her blog where she is sharing an outfit of the day each week. I thought her idea was great, so I decided I would try one of these posts out for you guys and see how you like it.

    And here is the link if you would like to buy shoes like these online: http://www.ardene.com/en/shoes/lace-up-sneakers-7.html
    Second is my skirt. For this outfit, I wore a plain black skirt. I don't remember where I got this but you can find basic black skirts almost anywhere. I thought this would look good with my outfit.

    Third, I paired this outfit with a cute shirt from Gucci. It is a dark colored shirt that goes perfectly with fall. It is super comfortable! One of my favorite casual shirts.
    Here is the link to their website where you can find shirts like this: gucci.com  


    And last but not least to finish off my outfit, I have this hoodie/jacket from Roxy. It is really comfortable and warm. I would highly suggest wearing a sweater or hoodie this fall season!

    DIY Re-Designed Shirt


    Hey guys! Today's Monday! Today I wanted to show you how you can take an old shirt and re-design it so it looks like new! I had a lot of fun doing this to a bunch of shirts that needed re-designing desperately! So I hope you enjoy! So without any further adieu....Let's get started!

    Step 1: 
    Gather your supplies:
    A old T-shirt, fabric paint, a paint brush, and a pair of sewing scissors.
    Step 2:
    I am starting by making my shirt a V-neck. So how I did this is I cut a triangle going downwards at the collar. As shown in the picture.   
    Step 3:
    Taking your paint, paint a heart in the middle of the shirt. Bring the painting strokes going inward. 
    Step 4: 
    Let your shirt dry COMPLETELY before trying it on. (And yes my younger sister tried it on for the picture.) 
    And that's it! I really hope you enjoyed today's post and I hope you will try out this DIY too! Let me know in the comments what kind of posts you would like to see from me next and I will do my best to make it happen! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl

    Four Things To Do This Fall


    Hey, everyone! It's Monday and for today's post, I will be showing you Four Things To Do This Fall. I am super excited to show you this because I love doing all of these things and hopefully you will too! Also, let me know in the comments what your favorite thing to do in the fall is. So without any further adieu.....Let's get started!

    Number 1: Be Artistic! I love art and fall! So this idea is perfect for any of you who love both of these things! Make art with a fall theme! It doesn't have to be a painting or drawing it can be a craft or any type of art!

    Number 2: Baking! During the fall season, it gets a bit chilly. So baking is a great solution! Turning on your oven can heat up your house and you're left with a delicious treat! So I highly recommend baking! I even have another blog that has tons of recipes on it! Here is the link if you would like to check it out:sweetyummygoodies.blogspot.com


    Number 3: Decorate! I love decorating for fall! It is a lot of fun and it leaves your room super cute!

    Number 4: Be inspired! I love looking at magazines and blog posts about fall. It gives me inspiration and ideas to try new things! 

    And those are all the idea's I wanted to share with you today! I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you did in the comments! If you try any of these be sure to let me know!! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday!

    Ways To Be Organized


    Hey! Today is Monday and for today's post, I will be showing you seven easy ways to be more organized! I had a lot of fun making this post so let me know in the comments if you would like to see more posts like this. Also, let know how many of these ways you already do! 
    So without any further adieu let's get started!

    Number 1: If you're like me and never know what to wear in the morning here is an idea that might help you out. Pick out your clothes the day before so that in the morning you can just get dressed and go! This idea always helps me out when I need to get somewhere early!

    Number 2: Sometimes being organized is hard when you forget things that need to be done. So this idea that I use a lot, is to put post-it notes on your wall so that you can see reminders for when you need to do something.  

    Number 3: Make an organizer. An organizer helps keep all of your things super organized and they are pretty simple to make. I will leave a link at the end of this post of where you can find how to make my organizer that I have on this blog. 

    Number 4: Clean your room. Cleaning your room really helps you feel organized and neat. I feel that this is really important because it helps to have it out of your way so that you don't feel stressed out when your room isn't clean. Even just cleaning up a little can make a big difference! 
    Number 5: Make a menu. If you have trouble trying to figure out what you're going to eat every day, take one day and pick out a bunch of meals for the rest of the week. And now you have a full week of planned meals.
    Number 6: Don't Stress! One important thing when trying to be organized is not to be stressed about it. No one can be completely perfect in being organized. It's just not possible! So my tip for you is to not stress about being organized. Take it slow and enjoy it!
    Number 7: And last but certainly not least, have a planner. I love my planner because it helps me stay organized throughout the year. I would highly recommend getting a planner!
    And those are some of the ways to be organized. I hope you enjoyed today's post! Thank you so much for reading! Also look out for a post about cleaning coming soon! I hope you have a super great day! -BloggerGirl
