Take the Risk: Mix Patterns

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to share with you guys something that I think you guys should try! That is to mix patterns!

I think that when done right, it looks incredibly chic and very classy.

Here are some pictures where I think mixing patterns has been done right:



I think that they did a great job on mixing trendy and classy pieces! Also mixing trendy patterns with classic patterns!

Here are some pictures where I think it is done wrong:

I think that these are way to busy. I think that the outfit on the far left is way to complicated looking. The other two are also too busy. They aren't mixing the classic and trendy - their just mixing trendy pieces, which is just to much. It's good to mix trendy pieces into your everyday wardrobe, but not make your wardrobe trendy.

I hope that this post helped you guys know when to take the risk!

How to: Decorate Your Bulletin Board

Hey Everyone!

I feel like a lot of people are sometimes confused on how to decorate your bulletin board. What to put on it, how to place things etc.

I would show you a picture of what my bulletin boards look like, but they have a ton of school stuff on it! But that brings me to some of my tips!

Incorporate some of your school spirit onto your bulletin board! It will not only add some fun, but also color and life!

Put pictures all over it! I love putting memorable pictures on my bulletin board, because it personalizes it.

I also like putting up notes that I've gotten from my parents, friends or teachers. It will boost your confidence seeing that.

I also like to put up awards that I have gotten, because that also will boost your confidence seeing what you have accomplished!

Another tip would be to put movie tickets on it! I like to write on the back of mine who I saw it with, because then you can look back on it and see who you saw it with!

Here are some pictures of bulletin boards that I think are done right!



I hope that you guys liked this post on how you can decorate your bulletin board(s)!

DIY Zit Zapper! Using Advil Liquid Gels

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to share with you guys a tip on how to get rid of zits, with some household medicine (advil liquid gels).



All that you're going to do is cut open the liquid gel and apply it right onto the pimple. This will not only make the pimple loose redness, but it will also put the swelling down.

I hope that you guys found this post helpful in finding out a new way to create your own zit zapper!

Books to Read : Miles to Go

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to do a post about a book that I think you guys would love!



Now, if you love Miley Cyrus like I do, then I think that you would love this book! I finished this in a day and I thought that the whole thing was done really really well!

Here's the description of the book:

The memoir discusses Cyrus' relationship with her parents, her thoughts on the media, her love life, her future ambitions and milestones she still has to reach in her life.

Now I know that that wasn't a very long description, but I think that it does a really great summary of what the book is really all about.

It also includes pictures in the center of the book of her when she was younger, with her brothers and sisters.

Miley also talks about her relationship with Nick Jonas. Which my sister and I were always completely in love with their relationship. So I loved reading about all of the details.

I hope that you guys read this book. I think that if you're a Miley fan, you will love it as much as I loved it!

It's also a really quick read ( I read it in two days).

I hope that you guys read it!

xoxo
