5 Ways to Relax


Hey, guys! It's Monday! :) And it has been a busy end of the year from all the holidays and getting ready for the New Year! So for today's post I wanted to share with you some tips on how to be less stressed and to relax a little bit. I hope this post helps you out a little bit! Also, I know that everyone might not enjoy all of these tips, that is why I am showing a couple so that you can figure out which tip is best for you! So without further adieu...Let's get started!

Tip 1: Listen to Music! I love listening to music so whenever you're feeling stressed out, put on your headphones, earbuds or just listen to your music out loud! This always seems to leave me in a good mood I would recommend listening to upbeat music.

Tip 2: Light a candle! Candle's are one of my favorite things! They are always to calming and smell so good! So if I were you I would definitely try this one out!


Tip 3: Read! Yes, I think I add this to all my posts of tips but I love reading and I thought it would be a good relaxer. One of my favorite authors is Jannette Oak, but in this picture, I am reading a book by Jane Austin, called "Emma".

Tip 5: Write in a Journal. Writing is a way to get your mind off things and to improve your handwriting! I write all the time and I love my journal! 

Tip 5: And last but not least..Go on a Walk! My little dog Rosie loves to go on walks so I take her out all the time. But going on a walk can be super relaxing especially when you're out in nature by yourself. You can clear your mind and get exercise at the same time. So this is one of my favorites from my list!

And that is the end of my post! I had a lot of fun making this post for you guys so if you would like to see more posts like this let me know my commenting down below. I hope you have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl

DIY Planner Idea's


Hey, guys! It's Monday and for today's post, I am going to be showing you how I made a simple notebook into a super cute planner! If you haven't seen my 10,000 views post yet that I made today I suggest you do! It is below this post. So without any further adieu...Let's get started!

The first thing that I did was I took some pretty scrapbook paper and glued it onto the front and a piece on the back of the notebook. I also cut out this quote from my old planner and glued it onto the front. I let it dry completely before opening and working on the inside. 

When it was dry I opened it and started to work on the inside of my DIY Planner. I just took a ruler and drew 5 lines. And in the 6th space, I drew one line going down. Then I wrote the days of the week and the dates. I would highly recommend using a calendar to help you not mess up with the dates. Do this to the rest of your pages going to December. Also remember to write the months too.

And you're done! But feel free to add any personalized touches to your planner. I added a few to mine. :) 
And there you have a super simple DIY Planner that looks like you paid a lot of money for! Let me know in the comments if you make this DIY! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday!

Organization 2017


Hey, guys! IT'S 2017! And it is also Monday! So for today's post I wanted to share with you some organization tips for 2017! I did a post like this last year so after you read this post, I would encourage you to check it out! So without any further adieu...Let's get started!


#1: My first tip, is to organize your things in shelves with compartments.

#2: Get a calendar. Calendars are super useful during the year because you can see what you need to do that month with it out in front of you.

#3: Lastly I used a large frame a placed some of my things that I wanted to display. It is also a good thing to write down your goals for this year and display. 
And that is the end!! I really hope you enjoyed the first post of 2017! Thank you so much for being here in 2016! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl

DIY New Years Party Table


Hey guys! Today is Monday and for today's post I am going to be showing you some idea's on how to DIY a New Year's party table! Wow I can't believe 2017 is so close! In less then a week it will be officially 2017!!! :) But I decided that I would show you this idea in case you wanted to have a party and you wanted to DIY everything! I am not having a party but this is great for just having with your family too! So without any further adieu....Let's get started!

First off let's start with the decor! So what I did first is I cut out 2017 in paper and colored it. But I would highly recommend already colored paper. 


Then I cut out piece's of paper and wrote: HAPPY NEW YEAR in colorful letters.

Now to drinks! I just went the super simple route and served water! But definitely put out what drinks you like! 


FOOD! Yay now we get to do the fun part! So for the first treat I cut up banana pieces and dipped them in chocolate and froze them. Then about after half an hour it should be ready.

The second treat I made was peanutbutter cookies. But make sure if you are making this for a party that no one is allergic to peanuts.   

And last but not least...I popped some popcorn and put it in this cute bowl. :)

And your done!! Yay! I hope you enjoyed today's post! And next weeks post will be next year!! Ahh! Let me know in the comments what you think I should post for next week! Have a great day and I'll see you NEXT YEAR!! <3 -BloggerGirl

DIY Easy Hot Chocolate


Hey, guys! Welcome to my second winter post! :) Today is Monday and for today's post, I am going to show you how to make the best hot chocolate ever! (Just kidding I'm sure there is a better hot chocolate in the world that would top this. But this is the best hot chocolate I know. )
 So without any further adieu......Let's get started! 

So to start off I melted one Tablespoon of chocolate in a 1/2 cup of water.Then I added milk.(But you can always use a hot-chocolate package instead.) After you have stirred up your hot chocolate, get out your other ingredients: 1 crushed candy cane, marshmallows(as many as you desire), and 1/3 cup of vanilla ice cream.

Start off by taking your ice cream and adding it to your hot chocolate. DO NOT STIR!

Second, add your marshmallows in a pile on top of your ice cream. It is okay if your ice cream sinks a little.

Lastly, sprinkle your crushed candy cane on top. And now you're ready to drink it! I would definitely recommend making this for your friends and family! :)
 Yay! Now you know how to make my favorite hot chocolate! Let me know in the comments what winter posts you would like to see next! Remember to come back next week for another post! Have a great day and I'll see you on Monday! -BloggerGirl

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......
