How to make homemade lemonade

This is a super easy DIY for whenever you want lemonade! Most likely you'll have what you need right in your kitchen. Lets get started! 

You'll need lemon juice, sugar, water (not shown) and of course the container you'll be making it in. 

To start off, you'll want to pour the lemon juice in your container. Pour according to how large the container is and how strong you want it to taste. 

Next, you're going to add the sugar. Also add this according to the container and your personal tastes. 

Just FYI, I added 4 oz of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of sugar for a 24 oz cup. 

When you have added both of these, go ahead with your water. 

Mix it up now! I'm going to close the top and shake it up, but you can use a spoon or whatever you'd like. 

Enjoy your lemonade!

How to Easily Remove Glitter Nail Polish

Hello! Today I'll be showing you how to easily remove glitter polish. As you probably know, glitter polish is super hard to take off, and can often leave chips, scraps, and extra pieces of stray glitter on your nails. This technique that I will show you today prevents all of this from happening. It takes very little time and you probably already have everything you need!

What you need:
Nail Polish Remover
Cotton Balls
Tin Foil

First, you'll have to put nail polish remover on your cotton ball. Make sure it's pretty wet, but no dripping.

Place the cotton ball on top of your nail.

And wrap the square of tin foil around it.

Wrap all your fingers like this, and let them sit for about 5 minutes.

Then, slide off the foil. If there are still a few polish streaks, you can rub it off with the cotton ball.

Ta-da! It works very well, be sure to try it out!

Going on Vacation- Be Back Soon!

Hello there!
Yep, I'm going on vacation! I'll be gone from July 2 (tomorrow, Wednesday) to July 11 (a week from this Friday). But, our flight comes in late on Friday, so posts will probably resume on July 12 (a Saturday).
Tomorrow, I have to wake up really early- 4:00 AM- to get to the airport at 5:00 AM and catch our flight at 6:00 AM. That's super early! But, it'll be worth it.
I've never been on a plane before, except when I was a baby, but I course I don't remember that.
The reason there won't be any posts is where I'm going they don't have very good wifi, and you can hardly do anything with it. So, I won't be online much, if at all. However, I do have some posts scheduled to post while I'm gone, so look out for those!

The Difference Between Top Coat and Base Coat

This may be a surprise to you, but THEY'RE THE SAME THING. Yeah. Okay, need an explanation? Here it is.

See? It's all the same thing.

The base coat is the coat of clear polish that goes on your nail before any color or other polish goes on. You do this to protect your nail.

The top coat is the coat of clear polish that you put on after all other polish has been painted on.

Get it now? They're both the same substance, made of the same things. It's just when you put it on that changes the name of it.

Hope this helped you save some money! It's a good thing to know.

Galaxy Print

I'm pretty sure most of you have seen this trendy print, galaxy! I see it all the time on shoes, dresses, skirts, and a bunch of other things! In fact, I even see galaxy nail art! (Actually, I just did my nails like that, I love the print so much! They look SO cool.) Here are some of my favorite ways to wear this design.

I absolutely love these shoes, they're so cool! I plan to get some soon, but I have to find some at a reasonable price; I'm not wasting $100 on a pair of shoes.

Would you wear this? I know I would! I'd probably get a short-sleeved one, but this one is great too! I love the sleek-ness of it. It is a bit short, so you could pair it with...

I think these would look great with a galaxy print dress! or you could pair them with a plain black or blue dress, it would be such a great and unique touch!

This skirt is would definitely pair well with a black tank top. Seriously who wouldn't wear such a great combo? I mean, I'm not much of a dress or skirt wearer, but if it's galaxy, count me in!

I absolutely LOVE this concept! I just did this on my nails last weekend, and OH MY GOODNESS! It is so easy, it's unheard of! You literally have the universe on your fingernails. Totally out of this world. (Ha, ha.) If you'd like me to do a tutorial on it, feel free to ask! It doesn't matter if you're a professional or a beginner at doing your nails, it is so easy. I could rant on and on about this... but you probably don't want to read that. 

I mean, seriously, who wouldn't want to have a galaxy print wallpaper? You've already got the clothes and the nails, so why not? ;)
Okay, just kidding. You don't necessarily have to like galaxy print (though I find it hard not to). Anyway, for you fellow galaxy print lovers out there, below I've already searched up some wallpapers, for both your mobile devices and your computer. So go ahead, start downloading! 

If you don't know how to save pictures to your device, here's how:
  1. For mobile devices, press and hold on the picture that you'd like to download. For computers, right click.
  2. A little menu should come up.
  3. Select "save" or "save image as" or something of that sort.
  4. Hopefully you know where it's saved (folders for a computer, gallery for mobile devices).
  5. Go ahead and set it as your wallpaper!
Okay, here's the wallpapers! I've split them into sections for the type of device you're using.


Mobile Devices

So go ahead and use those wallpapers! (They're free, right off of Google Images!) ;)

So what's your opinion on galaxy print? Is this the first time you've seen it? Do you have any galaxy print items? Are you getting off the computer right now to go to the store and buy some? Let me know down below in the comments. ;)

Love y'all! Have a happy day! (Or rather, evening...whatever.)
