Things To Do In Summer

Hey everyone! I am so excited that it is summer! If you have been a follower of DIY Crafts + Life Style for a while you probably have noticed that I make a special post for every season. In these special posts I share what to do in those seasonal months so you won't be bored. So today I have...Things to do in SUMMER!! I might be doing a part 2 of this because it was so much fun to make. So look out for that sometime this summer.  So let's get into it!!
#1: Play a sport. Sports are fun all year round but their especially fun during the summer time! Some of my favorites are: Soccer, and volleyball.

#2: Go swimming! I actually went swimming today and it was a lot of fun. Swimming is also a great way to cool off in the summer heat.

#3: Go biking. Biking is a lot of fun especially if you do it with other people. 


   #4: Have a fun photo shoot! My sisters and I love having photo shoots together so this is something we like doing in the summer. So if you've never tried this out I woul…

DIY Shushie

Image
Hey everyone! Today is Monday and I will be showing you how to make an awesome summer drink! This is a super simple recipe to make and it tastes great! I have already made this twice this summer. That's how good it is! These drinks are great for hot days when you need to cool down. So lets get started!!
Step 1: Gather your supplies: A blender, ice, lemons, a cutting board, a knife, and sugar.
Step 2: Squeeze the juice out of two lemons into a small bowl. Then mix in two (or three depending on how sweet you would like your slushie) Tablespoons of sugar into the lemon. 
Step 3: Blend your ice in the blender.(I used about 7 or 8 cubes of ice). You might need to add a bit of water to help blend the ice smoothly. After your ice has turned to slush you can add your lemon/sugar mixture in. Mix that up and pour into a glass.
And your done!! This makes about one serving of lemon slushie. It is kind of a lot so I would suggest sharing. 

I hope you guys enjoyed today's post! If you do make th…

Step 4: You are going to need a tissue for this part to spread the glue…

Travel Tips

Hey everyone! It's Monday and it is almost summer. And a lot of people are getting ready to travel for the summer and so am I. So I thought that I would share some EASY traveling tips with you so that you're prepared for any trip you take. All of these tips are super helpful and I use almost all of them! If you like posts like this please let me know in the comments so I can make more posts like this. So lets get started!
Tip 1: When packing a suitcase most people just fold their clothes and throw them in. But a better way is to roll your clothes and put them in. This will leave you with more space and less wrinkles in your clothes. 

Tip 2: Another tip to saving space in your suitcase(or backpack) is to pack all of your pairs of socks in your shoes. So you can fit about 3 pairs in a large shoe, so that is 6 pairs of socks in a pair of shoes! That is a crazy amount of space you'll be saving!
Tip 3: When packing shampoo,conditioner or lotion, sometimes it leaks out of the lid a…

Hey guys! It's Monday and for today's post I am going to be showing you what is in my sports bag. I did a post on What's In My Bag last year so go check that out after you finish this post! I take my sports bag with me to soccer practice every week so most of the things in my bag are soccer related. Lets hop into it!!
#1: So lets start off with what bag I use as my sports bag. I use this Nike backpack to hold all of my stuff. 

#2: My cleats. I keep my cleats for soccer in my bag. 
#3: My long socks and my shin-guard's.(I forgot to put my shin-guards in this picture)
#4: I don't actually keep this in my bag since it is kind of big but I do carry it with me whenever I bring my sports bag so I thought I would include my Water bottle. I also like having cold water in my bottle.
#5: My emergency bag. I keep a small bag of things that I might need and if I'm out then I can always keep them with me.
#6: My Adidas Deodorant spray. I always like to keep this with me just in c…

Easy Study Tips

Image
Hey guys! It's Monday! And it is getting so close to summer and everyone is taking exams and tests to finish the school year. So I thought that I would share some tips on studying that I have found helpful whenever I am studying for a test or exam. Lets get into it!


Tip 1: Use highlighters to highlight your definitions to help you study. You can also color coordinate each color. 
Tip 2: Label your folders. To keep your notes organized label your folders so that it will be easier to get to your notes. 
Tip 3: Sticky notes! I love sticky notes because they are great reminders when you have a test coming up and you need to get ready for it. So you will never be unprepared when a test comes up.
Tip 4: I know this one is pretty basic but using flash cards can help you study and help you learn faster. So this one is a must! :)
Tip 5: Listening to music when your studying can help you concentrate and help block out other sounds. If you get easily distracted then I would suggest listening to c…
