    • Plan the next day
      There comes some sort of comfort when you know that things are planned ahead of time. When you’ve done something as simple as writing down a list of things to do the next day, or prepared things for the near future, you find that you don’t need to lose sleep over your organization skills.

 

    • Meditate
      It’s important that you feel relaxed before you even go to sleep. Meditation is great for the mind, body and spirit. It doesn’t have to be a lavish routine with fancy essential oils or burning incense, just find a meditation track somewhere on the Internet (YouTube is always your friend!), lay down and meditate.

 

    • Fall asleep listening to music
      Whatever you want, babe! Make a playlist of some of your favorite feel-good bangers or maybe a playlist of chill AF tunes. Put your headphones in and fall asleep to music that makes you feel gooooood!

DAY TO NIGHT: Fashion and Beauty Tips

We all love going for cocktails with the girl gang after a big day at work and, some of us might have a cute date night after another shitty day in a classroom. Whatever you have going on, we could all use some helpful tips that help us go from day to night with ease!

1. Change into a dark lip You should be moisturizing those luscious lips during the day with your favorite balm. Then when you go out for some fun during the night, smack on a dark lip for a quick, powerful and fierce night look.

2. Add statement jewelry Adding a few statement pieces to your #OOTN changes the whole game. It’ll transform your entire outfit – add a statement necklace for sophistication; stack a bunch of rings on for an edgy or boho look.

3. Smudge for a smokey look If you’re wearing a perfect line of eyeliner during the day, you’re already ahead of the night makeup look game. For a sexier and more night-time appropriate look, just smudge your liner onto your lids for that smokey eye look.

4. Swap your stud earrings for dangling earrings If you’re looking forward to partying at the end of the day, pack a pair of unique dangling earrings for that girly, eye-catching look.

5. Let your hair down Just like in the movies when someone lets their hair down after a lifetime of it in an up-do! If your locks have been up in a pony for the day, take your hair out and mess around with it for a bit of volume. An effortlessly casual party look!

DIY Sculpted Statement Wire

In need of a serious bold statement for a room? Say it with your very own Sculpted Typography. You only need a few things for this jazzy room decor project, then you can call yourself a DIY Queen.

+++

First thing you’ll need to do is know what word you want to sculpt and how big or small you want it to turn out.

Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 11.46.58 am

Start out with small and simple words as you get the hang of twisting and turning the wire. Once you’re comfortable, you can move on to things like multiple words or sentences.

You can also do some research into what font you want to sculpt out and use that as your guide.

Now begin to shape your word until you get the shapes and curves that you want. This might take a few tries, so be patient!
