Neat BTS Supplies for that ‘Doomsday’ That We Can’t Stop! (and the end of #TASHToSchool2017)

Hello! DOOMSDAY IS COMING!! Just joking. It’s only school. Then again, I’m going to go along calling that doomsday. But there is nothing we can do. At all. So I guess that’s that.

Guilty Party airs the first episode on YouTube tomorrow! Who else is going to be watching it? Let me know what character you guys are most looking forward to. I think JR is going to be kind of funny, and I think Charlie is going to end up being my favorite because she reminds me a little of myself.

Anyone see Taylor Swift’s new Look What You Made Me Do music video? She totally dissed the past versions of herself! I think she’s going all Selena Gomez on us, and I like the direction her Reputation album is going.

Anyways, let’s go into the DIYs before I talk you guys to death.

  1. Watermelon Binder

You will need a binder or notebook, paint and a piece of white paper

Step One. Paint a streak of green down the side of your white paper. Yo don’t need to worry about getting it perfect, because it will still look cute even if it’s not perfect. Leaving a white space, use some pale pink paint for the rest to be the edible part of the watermelon. Let it dry

Step Two. Use a black marker or paint pen to draw on the seeds. Glue to your notebook or binder to finish. I rimmed mine in duct tape just to make it look more polished.

2. Tumblr Disney Emoji Dividers

You will need four printouts of a Tumblr background, five Mickey Mouse emojis and five pixel speech bubbles reading whatever is going in each tab.

This one is really simple, yet so freaking adorable.

The Only Step. Print off your Tumblr backgrounds. Cut out the emojis and glue one to the side of each page so that they look like dividers. It’s kind of hard to explain, but Jess Herz did Pokemon dividers in one of her Fandom School Supplies videos. A ot of YouTubers have actually done the emoji dividers, so there’s bound to be someone who explains it better than me. Glue the labels to the tabs and then you want to hole ouch the pages and insert them into a binder.

TIP- To save both paper and printer ink, you can use scrapbook paper from Micheal’s or some other craft store.

3. Eyes Binder/Notebook

All credit goes to Sea Lemon on YouTube.

You will need watercolors and paper. Also a binder or notebook.

The Only Step. Paint different types of eyes on your paper. some are open, some are closed.Use variety. Once you’re happy, let dry and add some diagonal stripes in the background. Glue to the binder or notebook to finish.

4. Stylish Pencils- Three Types

You will need pencils and acrylic paint. Also some cute quotes for the pencils.

Example One-Solid Color

Paint your pencil the selected color. It may take a few coats for it to look the way you want it to. Once it is dry, top it off with a fandom or just generally cute quote. I mat one that said ‘can we taco’, one that said ‘you’re unstoppable’ and a sharpie with some lyrics to Dollhouse, but the pink one shown above is one of my favorites.

It has a Ben Kowalewicz quote that reads ‘the teapot code’, which comes from the MTV ‘Diary Of Billy Talent’ special, when they were in London and his girlfriend made him go looking for a teapot set for some of their friends who were getting married, and he couldn’t find it, so he made a joke about it to the camera guy, and said ‘[bleep] the Da Vinci Code, It’s the Teapot Code!’

Example Two- Ombre

You will also need a metallic marker

For the ombre pencil, first paint it a base color. I found that black works the best. Then, take  a metallic marker and just color a streak that covers the top third of the pencil. Then, if you want to, you can top it off with a short quote or a word. I wrote ‘Muggles’ because why not!

Example Three- Paint Drip

Paint your pencil a base color. Cover the eraser area with some tape. Then, you’ll want to open your bottle of paint and dip the top third of your pencil in the paint. Pull out and place upright in a cup. Allow the paint to drop.  Once dry, you can either leave it like that, or add a quote. I added the quote, ‘Goodbye Ghost’, said once by the amazing Ben Kowalewicz.

5. Holographic Collage Binder

You will need tinfoil and magazines. Of course, if you have holographic paper, it will probably work better. And a binder or notebook would help.

Step One. Cut your tinfoil or holographic material to a size that will fit on your notebook or binder. Then cut out some hexagons from the magazines. I also cut out some other shapes. I have a few diamonds and some close cut shapes.

Step Two. Glue to the page in any sort of way that you are pleased with. Cut off the excess and apply to the notebook or binder.

6.(Fake) Designer Pencilcase

You will need a Ziploc bag, a patterned piece of paper, song lyrics and duct tape.

Step One. Cut your Ziploc back to the size that you need. Cut out your pattern and glue i the middle. I did one pencilcase rimming it in duct tape first, and it looked a little more polished, but it looks polished either way, so I don’t think it matters that much.

Step Two. Glue your song lyrics in the middle. For the pink pencilcase, I used lyrics from Billy Talent’s ‘Afraid Of Heights’ ad I rimmed the lyrics in pink duct tape, with some blak duct tape running underneath, but for the pizza pencilcase, where I used lyrics from Melanie Martinez’s ‘Mad Hatter’, I gave it a cartoony box feel. Ad your stationary inside  to finish

Bonus Material: First Day Lookbook

Well, it’s supposed to be a lookbook, but i didn’t have a chance to take photos, so i’m just going to explain what I’m going to wear.

I’m going to wear some ripped jeans from Bluenotes, an AC/DC t-shirt, also from Bluenotes and a plaid flannel, from, you guessed it, Bluenotes. To accessorize, I’m simply going to wear a cat ears headband from Ardene and some wedge-heel sandals from Soft-Moc.

 

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post and that these DIYs will definitely help you guys through school. Remember to like and follow my blog to support me and male sure you don’t miss any other great posts and content from me. For the last time before doomsday,

Tumblr E-Reader Case! Under $20!

Hey! During class we’ve been reading The Outsiders by SE Hinton, which is about two rival “gangs”, the Socs and the Greasers. Towards the end though Spoiler Alert!!! it got really sad when Dallas died. I cried so hard that i may have ruined the book… It was, however, a really good and eye-opening book. I recommend it. If you are an emotional person, keep tissues with you. I should have done that.

Anyways… How has life been? It wasn’t until I finished reading The Outsiders and decided to get a copy for my E-Reader that i remembered this was the last DIY i did before vacation. I figured i might as well share it with you guys, so here i am!

You will need a computer printout with Tumblr photography, duct tape, and an E-Reader case that fits your model. This can also be modified for a phone or tablet.

Step One. Google “tumblr photography” and select a picture you like. Goolgeling (?) “tumblr quotes” works too. Open it in a Word document and resize it. If you have PicMonkey, that works as well. Resize a small portion to fit the spine of your case. Print and cut out.

Step Two. Glue all your pictures down. Use your duct tape to frame it out. Insert your device to finish and make final cuts.

Bonus Material

Cord Storage Hack

Storing device cords and having to untangle them is a pain in a certain area. To help (and make them look stylish), you can go to the Dollar Store and buy some glitter hair ties. Tie around your cord to prevent tangles.

Thank you so much for reading my blog! Be sure to like this post and follow my blog just so you know when new posts will come out. If you are interested in reading The Outsiders, you can find free PDFs online or its $10.99 at Chapters. Remember the tissues come the end! Thanks for reading and i will see you again next time!

Disney Princesses who Should Have their Movies Made Live-Action + Fantasy Casting

“Cinderella”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Mulan”. What do these films have in common? They were all animated classics before they became live-action. I have consulted my list of Disney Classics and decided that more of them should become live-action and i know just who should be in them! Let me know in the comments which princesses you think should be live-action and your casting thoughts!

aladdin

1. Aladdin

Okay, a live-action “Aladdin” would be AWESOME. With flying carpets, Agrabah in prominence and the best monkey ever. #abu! Anyways, back to casting. Here are my picks!

lesley-ann-brandtfady-elsayed

Lesley Ann Brandt   was featured prominently on the first season of “The Librarians” as Lammia, the second in command  for the Serpent Brotherhood, villain of the first season. She has also been on “Lucifer”. She has South-American roots and is based out of New Zealand. She seems like the perfect pick for Princess Jasmine.

Fady Elsayed  starred as Ram Singh on the first, and possibly only season of BBC’s “Doctor Who” Spin-Off, “Class”. Ram is a football (soccer in England) star who needs to balance the death of his first girlfriend, losing his leg to a shadow beast and meeting new girlfriend April McLean. Oh yeah, he and his friends also need to save the school. He would be an Aladdin to die for.

snowwhiteandtheseven

2. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Snow White was the emblem of my childhood. Coming close next to “Tangled”, this was one of my most watched. I always loved how she could talk to the woodland creatures! Here are my casting pics!

natalia-dyertom-felton

Natalia Dyer  is the genius behind Nancy Wheeler on the Netflix original “Stranger Things” which is about four 12 year old boys who are shocked when Will Byers, one of their little clique of four vanishes into thin air. The series is set in November of 1983, which explains the hair. The 19 year old from Nashville attended NYU. She was also on something called “I Believe in Unicorns”. but i have no idea what that is. It is my personal opinion that she would be an amazing Snow White. Oh and yeah, there have been rumors that she is dating costar Charlie Heaton, who played Jonathan Byers. Please let this be true!

Tom Felton  is best known for his role as Draco Malfoy on “Harry Potter”. He wasted his talents on that idiot, that’s for sure. No offense to Draco or anything! Anyway, he has also appeared as a CIA Agent on CTV’s “The Flash”. Now, is it just me or is this guy perfect to be Snow’s Prince? Sorry, i forgot the Prince’s name!

sleepingbeauty

3.Sleeping Beauty

Where do i begin with this movie? My mother used it as a lesson for me: be nice to people or an evil fairy will come and curse your kid. We need an amazing cast with Angelina Jolie back as Malificent. She was so good in “Malifecent”

evanna-lynchjack-p-shepard

Evanna Lynch was born in Ireland. She played Luna Lovegood in “Harry Potter”‘s 5-8. She has also been on “GBF”, which i personally have not seen. She would be a really good Aurora in this movie. BTWs, she broke up with Robbie Jarvis.

Jack P Shepherd is a British actor known for his role as the troubled teen to early 20’s adult, David Platt on iconic British soap opera “Coronation Street”. He hinted in an interview that David may be remarrying after the tragic death of his wife Kylie at the hands of Clayton Hibbs. This guy would be the perfect Prince Phillip!

littlemermaid

4.The Little Mermaid

This movie made me want to become a mermaid. I would spend days wearing my Ariel costume and singing “Under the Sea”. Hahaha. Good times.

lindy-booth2charlie-heaton

Lindy Booth was born in Oakville, Ontario. She played Claudia on “Relic Hunter as her very first acting role (Which she never thought she would get) which she dyed her hair blonde for. However, she is most known for her role on “The Librarians” as Cassandra Cillian. She would be the best Princess Ariel ever.

Charlie Heaton is the guy who played the amazing Jonathan Byers on “Stranger Things”, the Netflix exclusive. As stated when i was talking about Natalia Dyer, he might be dating her and i hope its true. Now, this guy here is the perfect Prince Eric!

mulan

Bonus Material

Today’s bonus material is fantasy-casting for 2018’s “Mulan” live-action. Here are my casting picks!

lucy-liujohn-harlan-kim

Lucy Liu is a Chinese-American who starred as Joan Watson on “Elementary”, where she was no damsel in distress. Same goes for when she played Viper on “Kung Fu Panda”. She is an excellent choice for Fa Mulan.

John Harlan Kim is a Korean-Australian who stole everybody’s hearts as try-hard, super-dreamy master thief, Ezekiel Jones on “The Librarians”. He turned 24 on January 10th, 2017. He is soooooo super-dreamy and i could make an entire blog post about that, but i won’t for obvious reasons. He currently lives in Australia, but is incredibly busy travelling. This guy = most dreamy Li Shang  EVER!

Okay, thank you for reading my blog post! I hope you agree with my casting choices and let me know in the comments with your opinions. Remember to press the follow button on the homepage and i will post again soon!

Athletic Fashion Advice + What to bring to your sporting match

Hello again! Long time, no talk! Welcome back to Books, Crafts and DIYs! As I was telling you back in Fall Fashion Advice 🙂, I has made the cricket team. Sorry, I have made the cricket team. There Naajaki! It’s proper grammar! So. That was weird. Don’t lie. ‘Twas very weird. Please just let us forget about that. So anyhoo, I made the school cricket team on Thursday after two days of tryouts and nearly a week of hard deliberations from the coaches and the gym teacher.

Outfits

For a sport, what you need is something versatile. That meaning that you can waer it for pretty much anything. Athletic shorts and tank tops usually do the trick. You can feild, bat, bowl and scorekeep in these. If you need to wear a jersey that is like, five billion times too big, just tie it up over your tank top.

Pamper Me Bag

After a game, you’re all hot and sweaty and smell bad. You need to pamper your self. Be your perfect self once again. You just gave the team your all and now you need to wash up. In my bag, I have fragrance mist that I covered in a candy wrapper the same way i did my candy lip balms. i also have a Christmassy lotion and some hair ties in a small potato chip bag tote.

Pack It All In

 To pack all your accessories away (and a good pair of Adidas), simply use a large, fashionable bag. I used my galaxy tote bag, but you can use anything you have lying around.
