ways to entertain yourself in quarantine: what to do when stuck at home! 🍰

ways to entertain yourself in quarantine: what to do when stuck at home! 🍰

ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ hi guys! it’s me alexi / alex, and today i’ll be talking about ways to entertain yourself in quarantine! sorry for not uploading anything yesterday, but hopefully the two posts i’ve posted today ( including this one! ) make up for it. 

without further ado, let’s get on with the post! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ 

✧・゚*₊˚ one: do some cleaning / organizing! quarantine is the perfect time to be productive and do all the things that you procrastinated on while there was still school / work. maybe clean your room, organize your desk, or straighten out your closet! of course, if you don’t have the energy or motivation to be productive, that’s perfectly alright — it happens to everyone! start with simple things, like making your bed, folding your blankets, or even just sweeping the floor. then, slowly progress to bigger things! ٩( ‘ω’ )و

but don’t forget to take your time ( you have lots of it! ) and don’t stress yourself out! ( ⸝⸝•ᴗ•⸝⸝ )੭⁾⁾

・゚*₊˚ two: self-care! self-care doesn’t have to be big and extravagant, not like the morning routine of a famous beauty blogger, or the self-care regime of that instagram influencer who always seems to have everything together ( she doesn’t! ). things like staying hydratedeating healthy foodor even napping are good for you and your mental health — you can even play video games, or binge-watch a movie / tv show! ( netflix, hulu and other streaming services are 👌🏻) 

but if you want to be extra, go for it! do that 10-step skincare routine you normally don’t have time for! take that fancy bubble bath with bath-bombs, and lots of rose petals and candles! do what you want! 

the point is, take care of yourself! self-care, in my opinion, is anything that helps your well-being as a whole. at the end of the day, it’s about taking care of yourself! ( ˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈♡)

✧・゚*₊˚ three: learn something new! there’s a ton of resources on the internet that can help you learn nearly everything, from a new language, to coding, to even computer science! for learning a new language, apps like duolingo and drops are great — just ignore all the duolingo memes ∗˚(* ˃̤൬˂̤ *)˚∗ code.org is great for learning how to code, and khan academy is just great for learning about anything and everything!  ( *ˊᵕˋ)

✧・゚*₊˚ four: spend time with your family! if you’re quarantined with your family like me, enjoy the opportunity to spend more time together! simple things, like watching a movie / television show together or playing a game of monopoly, help you bond while in quarantine — this time is really special, since you have more time to focus on your relationships and give them the time they deserve! ( how many times have i said time? approximately 5 times — no 6 now ) 

though don’t forget to set boundaries — if your parents are working or your sibling is studying, please don’t disturb them! ♡

ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ and that’s it for this blog post! sorry again that it’s kinda short. if you haven’t done so already and would like to see more posts like this, follow this blog via email using the widget available, or via your wordpress account! have a nice day/night, don’t forget to wash your hands, and bye! 🌷

what’s on my ipad pro + essential apps i can’t live without 🕊

what’s on my ipad pro + essential apps i can’t live without 🕊

ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ hi guys! it’s me, alexi / alex! welcome back to yet another blog post, and welcome if you’re new! today in this short post, we’ll be talking about without what’s on my ipad pro! further ado, let’s get on with the post! (。・ω・。) ✧・゚*₊˚

ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ 

✧・゚*₊˚ my ipad is the space-grey 11” ipad pro 2018, a christmas present from my parents, which i use for art and schoolwork. i use it alongside the apple pencil! here’s my ipad home screen: 

i kept it as neat as i could! ( ˘∀˘ )

for the dock, i put all of the apps except for safari into one folder named “apps.🌷”, and put the folder and safari onto it! i did the same with my other ipad, which is the one i use for games. ( ^ω^ )

✧・゚*₊˚ also, the wallpaper is a very simple pink and grey wallpaper, and i found it from a korean youtuber named ella. it was originally for phones, but i rotated it so that it would fit my ipad, and edited it a bit! if you’d like to use the wallpaper, you can find it here! (*’ω’*)

✧・゚*₊˚  here’s a small collage i did of the “apps” folder, just showing you what’s inside:

i made this collage with procreate! (^∇^)

✧・゚*₊˚ i kept basically all the stock apps that already came preinstalled with my ipad, and only downloaded a handful apps — i wanted more space for artwork and not for apps  ¯\_( ˘ω˘ )_/¯

all of the apps i did download are my favorites, and i use most of them them almost everyday; they’re essential apps i can’t live without! all of them are free, except for procreate. i’ll list them here: 

✧・゚*₊˚ one: autodesk sketchbook! this is a really great free drawing app with lots of features. there’s no in-app purchases and it’s a really great app — there’s even an option where you can access copic colors! i used this until i got my other drawing app, procreate.

IMG_9741.jpeg

✧・゚*₊ two: paper by wetransfer! this is also a really great free drawing app, and i use this much more often than i use autodesk sketchbook. it’s really minimalistic, which i love. 

it also has a “paper store”, where you can buy journals like tutorials, planners, art challenges and exercises, etc. while some of them are free, most of them are paid. to pay, you need credits, which you can only purchase with real money . ( ´∀`)

i rlly love this app because of it’s “journal” format, which you can change if desired. multiple tools are available, along with a wide color palette, and you can even add text notes and pictures! (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)

IMG_9742.jpeg

( though the app is free, a subscription called “paper pro” is available — this lets you unlock pro tools. i personally don’t use paper pro. )

✧・゚*₊ three: procreate! this is my most favorite app out of all of them — it’s specially made just for the ipad pro! it has literally hundreds of beautiful brushes — and in case you’re not happy with those, you can design your own in procreate brush studio, import custom procreate brushes from the internet, and even import adobe® photoshop® brushes! you can even animate! ٩( ‘ω’ )و

IMG_9744.jpeg

✧・゚*₊˚ four: clips! clips is an amazing video editor by apple. they have the cutest posters and stickers ( some of them are even from pixar and disney !!!), live title captions that automatically generate as you speak, creative filters, multiple 360° environments named “selfie scenes”, and even animoji / memoji if your device is compatible! they even have catchy music, and you can also import your own songs from garageband.

the only downside is that you can only make videos in square format, not in landscape or portrait. :;(∩´﹏`∩);:

ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ and that’s it for this blog post! sorry that it’s a bit short, i’ll have another post coming up later to make up for the lack of content yesterday. if you haven’t done so already and would like to see more posts like this, follow this blog via email using the widget available, or via your wordpress account!have a nice day/night, don’t forget to wash your hands, and bye! 🌷

what’s in my pouch: everyday essentials! 💌

what’s in my pouch: everyday essentials! 💌

ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ hi guys! it’s me, luiGi — jsjsjsj no, just me alexi / alex! welcome back to another blog post, and welcome if you’re new! today in this short post, we’ll be talking about what’s in my pouch! i’ll just be talking about my everyday essentials. without further ado, let’s get on with the post! (。・ω・。) ✧・゚*₊˚

ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ 

✧・゚*₊˚ i have this cute little pouch filled with my everyday essentials. it’s a purple prada pouch ( unintentional alliteration HAHAH :> ),, and holds stuff like lipbalm, a pocket mirror, a comb, etc; just necessary quarantingz. i always take it with me wherever i go, even in quarantine! 💌

here’s a photo of it

edited using procreate, full credits to me / @alexipaints ! ✧・゚*₊˚

✧・゚*₊˚ here’s a photo of everything that’s inside it ; i labeled each of them with a number ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

full credits to me / @alexipaints ! ✧・゚*₊˚

✧・゚*₊˚ number one: my lip-balms! i have four favorite lip-balms that i carry with me in my pouch: the burt’s bees honey, all-weather spf 15, and vanilla bean ones; most of them are from hong kong. though, my favorite one out of all of them is the glossier birthday balm dotcom. it’s super smooth ( if not slightly sticky ) on your lips, and leaves a sparkling glitter on your lips after it’s applied! (`・ω・´)

✧・゚*₊˚ number two: my compact mirror! my mirror is a pretty, shiny rose-gold customized mirror, engraved with my name, “alexandra”. it’s a gift from my mom, and it’s really helpful for fixing how you look / applying makeup as well! ( ´ ▽ ` )

✧・゚*₊˚ number three: my mommypatch lavender and anti-mosquito balms! these are super-helpful, and i carry them literally everywhere. the lavender balm helps soothe insect bites, cuts, scrapes, etc, and can also work to lessen pimples! additionally, the anti-mosquito balm has a special scent that deters mosquitos, protecting you from mosquitos and the deadly diseases carried by them! 

they both smell super good, and if you want your own, the founder’s instagram is @mommypatch. she’s super kind too! \( ˘ω˘ )/༉‧₊˚✧

✧・゚*₊˚ number four: my two combs! the pastel coral-pink customized comb has “alex ♥︎” written on it in gold cursive, and was a gift from my friend cassy back in grade 5. the beige-colored comb is from page 148 ( a beautiful boutique hotel in hong kong ). they‘re always in my pouch, because i have very fluffy wavy hair, and it tends to poof up easily and make me look like a lion. ෆ

✧・゚*₊˚ number five: my bath and body works sweet pea pocketbac! i carry this everywhere. though i prefer the mommypatch little contessa hand sanitizer, mine’s all finished, so i’m currently using this glittery b&bw one from my mom. it smells really good, and it gives me peace of mind knowing my hands are squeaky clean. („• ֊ •„)

✧・゚*₊˚ number six: my inhaler and my nasonex! the inhaler is self-explanatory, and the nasonex is prescribed, and is for whenever i have colds. ༄

✧・゚*₊˚ number seven: my rosary! i’m roman catholic, so it’s nice having my rosary with me at all times. ·ᴗ· 

ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ 

ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ and that’s it for this blog post! sorry if this post is too short, i didn’t want to pack it full with information and give you guys an information overload. if you haven’t done so already and would like to see more posts like this, follow this blog via email using the widget available, or via your wordpress account! have a nice day/night, don’t forget to wash your hands, and bye! 🌷

how to stop phone addiction in 2020: how to turn your phone from addictive to productive! ☏

how to stop phone addiction in 2020: how to turn your phone from addictive to productive! ☏

✧・゚*₊˚ hey guys! it’s me alexi / alex, and today i’ll be talking about how to curb phone addiction in 2020; and how to turn your phone from addictive to productive!

✧・゚*₊˚ today, phones can be very addicting, what with tiktok, youtube, netflix, instagram, and other addicting sites and apps. however, the more time we spend on our phones, the less time we spend in the real world, and the less time we spend being productive. remember, “time is an expense you can only spend once” — use it carefully!

✧・゚*₊˚ so, without further ado, here’s the list of ways you can help stop being so addicted to your phone! ( these tips also apply to gadgets like laptops / tablets / computers! ) 

ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

✧・゚*₊˚ one: turn off as MANY push-notifications as possible! ok, so this may seem difficult for perfectionists and people who love to be in control of every aspect in their life, but let’s be honest here: you don’t need to know every single like or retweet that your latest tweet gets, or how many people have liked your most recent instagram picture. 

a simple way to help reduce distractions and focus on tasks is to turn off notifications for unnecessary apps! i only activate notifications for my texting apps, calendar, and my email. that way, you can focus on studying! (*´꒳`*)

✧・゚*₊˚ two: turn on grayscale! in my experience, this tip is very successful at keeping off addictive games and social media! though, you might need to turn it off every once in a while to take photos, use maps, etc. though, the dark shades make colorful applications look less appealing! (。・ω・。)

✧・゚*₊˚ three: use an app to track your progress and stay productive! apps like forest (99.00 philippine pesos on apple, free for android) and flipd (free, in-app purchases available) help you stay responsible for how much time you spend on your phone.

fun and modern checklists like productive – habit tracker (free, in-app purchases available), and ticktick: remember to do lists (free, in-app purchases available) assist you in remembering your daily tasks! 

my personal favorite is habitica: gamified taskmanager (free, in-app purchases available), because it offers both apps and websites, and “makes it simple to have fun while accomplishing goals.” you get to have your very own adorable avatar, battle monsters, and level up while accomplishing tasks!

additionally, if you have an iphone / ipad, an option called “screen time” is available, and it helps schedule downtime ( time away from your iphone ), set app limits ( time limits for apps ), assign communication limits ( limit who you contact ), and add content restrictions ( this helps you block inappropriate content )! ٩( ‘ω’ )و

✧・゚*₊˚ four: remove distracting apps entirely! keep the apps that promote productivity, learning and eduction ( with a few games here and there, live a little of course! ), and remove time-wasting apps entirely, like social media. you could even delete apps like instagram or twitter, and use your phone’s web browser to use social media instead.

✧・゚*₊˚ that’s in for this blog post! if you haven’t done so already and would like to see more posts like this, follow this blog via email using the widget available, or via your wordpress account! have a nice day/night, bye! 🌷✧・゚*₊˚

✧・゚*₊˚ disclaimer: this post contains content from may 2017 and older, which was a period when i didn’t know how to properly write — prepare for possible incorrect information, odd formatting, and cringeworthy writing. :;(∩´﹏`∩);:

Hello guys! Sorry for not posting in a long time. School just ended for me! I really donut (DONUT? Whoops sorry lol I’m hungry) DO NOT want to waste any time so let’s just get right into da post! (I ALMOST SAID VIDEO LOL)

1. Travel. Obviously, you are not just gonna stay at home all summer, are you? So if you are gonna travel you need to pack. Here are some tips!

– If you don’t need space and are concerned about the weight fold your clothes.           – If you don’t care about the weight and need space roll your clothes!                                 -Put fragile items inside shoes…. Or better yet, save youself the trouble and DON’T BRING ANY. -Put heavier items at the bottom.

2. TRY SOMETHING NEW. As cheesy as it sounds, do it. Maybe you’ll become a paintball master! (Or maybe not…)

3. Start blogging! Or vlogging! OR MAYBE EVEN BOTH! (If you are a child, ASK PERMISSION FROM YOUR PARENTS OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES. Jk but still!)

4. Try to earn money! Set up a lemonade stand or garage sale! Who knows, maybe you’ll get enough to buy an iPhone 7 Plus. (In my country, it’s like 56,990 pesos.)

5.MOVE TO ALASKA! No seriously, if you are old enough and still live in your parents house you could move! Well not literally move as in movement but- you know what I mean.

6. Get a part time job! Lol maybe you should ask your parents about it first. (If you are old enough.)

7. ADOPT A PET! If your parents allow you and you are ready for the “responsibilities” you could get a hampster, a bird, a cat, a dog…

8. Clean your room. Well we know, it IS summer but at some point you ARE gonna have to clean your room.

Sorry this is short but I don’t have any more time and the internet is really sluggish but thanks for reading! I will update next Sunday! Buh bye!!!!

Hey guys, it’s Alexi! Today I am going to be doing a night routine for you people. So without further due, let’s get started!

Ok, so I usually arrive home at about 3 pm or 4 pm. I usually change into some comfy pajamas or sometimes a night gown.

I just chill out in my room for a short while. This is the period where I usually just read, organize my room a bit, you know, stuff like that.

Then most of the time I decide to either take a bath or do my homework. I almost always take a bath first. Then after that, I put on my pajamas and I get hungry so I eat dinner.

Now, I do my homework. The teachers almost always give us a ton of homework so I am usually just buried in assignments.

After that, this is the time that I will be like “Whoo! No homework anymore!” and do a little happy dance, especially when it’s Friday.

I usually just watch YouTube before eating dessert. I watch AlishaMarie, Niki and Gabi, Laur Diy, MammaMiaMakeup, My Life as Eva and Wengie. #youtubeloverforever!

Now, I eat my most favorite thing in the world: Hershey’s Chocolate Almond Ice Cream! I usually just eat it from the tub.

After this, I usually start to get ready for bed. So I brush my teeth first. Then I brush my hair and put on some Moroccan Argan Oil. Now, I wash my face.

After that, I usually watch more YouTube before going to sleep. So sorry if this is short but I hope you liked this blog post. See you soon at Simply Alexi. As they say in Project Mc2, over and out!

fun valentine’s day treats | older post

Hey guys, it’s Alexi! Look, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And then you get all happy and fuzzy and warm and blah inside.

And then you realize….

” OH SHOOT! I HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE MY SIGNIFICANT OTHER/BEST FRIEND/FAMILY!”

That moment of realization though….lol.

Don’t worry, Alexi to the rescue.

Here are some FOOD ideas!

Number One: Chocolate Delight Cupcakes! Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Makes about twelve cakes. You will need: 110g (40z) butter (soft), 110g (40z) caster, Superfine sugar, cocoa powder (as much as you want), 2 medium eggs, 110g self raising flour, 1/2 baking powder, and for the sugar icing: 300g (11oz) icing w/ confectioner’s sugar, 2-5 tablespoons of water, and 2-5 drops of pink or red food coloring.

Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F/Gas 4. Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and mix them together well, using a fork to break up the butter. Crack the eggs into another bowl and beat them.

Then pour the eggs into the sugar and butter mixture and mix them in as well. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder into the bowl and mix it in with a metal spoon.

Put some red/pink/white cases on the baking tray or muffin tin. Spoon the mixture into the cake cases, filling them to just over halfway. Place them in the oven for twenty minutes, then take them to cool.

For the icing, place the sieved sugar icing in a bowl and add two tablespoons of water and your food coloring. Mix until smooth. Spread over cakes with a palette knife. If you want, you can top it with pink or red m&ms, heart candy, or pink, red, or white sprinkles. Yay! Your cupcakes are ready to be placed in a cute container and given to your significant other or best friend!

Number Two: The Valentine Sundae! For this you will need: Your significant other/best friend’s favorite ice cream,(optional) whipped cream, hot fudge and red, pink, or white sprinkles/ red or pink m&ms/ heart candy!

Get a nice container. Place the ice cream inside. Get the whipped cream and place quite a lot on top. Pour hot fudge on the ice cream. Now place your toppings of choice on top. Close the container, place in the fridge until valentines day, and your ice cream is ready!

Number Three:  Heart Cookies! Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 12 – 20 minutes. You will need heart cookie cutters, 150g of all purpose plain flour, two tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, a small pinch of salt, 2oz diced butter, 2 oz soft brown sugar, one medium egg, and 1 oz golden syrup. For the icing, check the icing for the first recipe in this article.

Preheat the oven to 160 C/ 325 F/ Gas 3. Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add the diced butter and mix it in well using your fingers, then stir in the brown sugar with the spoon. Add the egg to the golden syrup and mix well in another bowl with a fork.

Add this to the mixture and beat well until the dough comes together. Flour the work surface, dough, and a rolling pin well, then roll out the dough to about 5mm thick. Cut out the cookies with the heart cookie cutters.

Keep rolling them and cutting them until there is no more dough left. Put them in the oven and keep an eye on them until done. When done, place on a wire rack to cool. Make the icing from the first recipe in this article. Spread the icing on your cookies and top with your desired toppings.

Thank you for reading, and have a nice day!

Hey guys, it’s Alexi! Anyways, I shouldn’t make this intro too long so let’s get right into the post! (I was about to say video then I forgot I was not a YouTuber. Lol.)

Ok, so for this first one you will need: washi tape, Mod Podge, a mini tic tac container and a rectangle eraser the size of the container. Now paint the inside bottom of the container with Mod Podge. Paste the eraser inside. Now decorate the outside of the container with washi tape and if you want, you can label it or put stickers on it.

For the second one, you will need:Mod Podge, a plain composition notebook, and gold glitter. Paint the whole front part of the notebook with Mod Podge. Put the glitter on. Let dry and repeat on the back side.

For the third one you will need: glue, cute scrapbook paper, and plain pencils. Just glue the scrapbook paper on the pencils, cut it to length, and voila! Since it’s paper, it can still be sharpened, so you are good to go!

For the fourth one, you will need: a pen in which you can se the insides, Mod Podge, and glitter. Remove the inside of the pen, coat the inside of the container with Mod Podge, place the glitter inside, tap off the excess, let dry, place the inside back in and voila! Unicorn glitter pens!

For the fifth one, you will need: green felt, scissors, a glue gun, a red pouch, and a black pen. Or a yellow or white pen. Anyways, cut out a zig zag shape off the felt, so it should look like several triangles glued together facing up. Glue the green triangles onto the top of the pouch where the zipper is. Then put black dots everywhere so it looks like a strawberry. Or yellow. Or white. Voila! Strawberry pouch!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post just as much as I enjoyed researching for it and writing for it. See you tomorrow! Bye!

Hi guys! Second post of the day. Let’s just get right into the blog post!

Ok, so the reason why I did this is because I wanted to change up the theme of my blog.

So the purple macaroons are actually eraser containers. You can buy a whole box of them (three macaroon erasers included) at Divisoria.

The pusheen cut outs are handmade by me. And the hello kitty pins are a gift from someone.

The whole thing is layed out on the floor on a blanket.And again, no filter!

I am sorry this second post is short but I have to go. Goodbye!

✧・゚*₊˚ disclaimer: this post contains content from may 2017 and older, which was a period when i didn’t know how to properly write — prepare for possible incorrect information, odd formatting, and cringeworthy writing. :;(∩´﹏`∩);: ( i didn’t even crop out the online text generator link in the “morning routine” text above — oof )

Hey guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t been updating for a long time. My year has been so busy. By the way, Happy New Year!

So today I am going to do two posts: one post about my new flat lay picture (#nofilter!) and one post about my morning routine!

By the way, if any of you are Catholic or Christian, I’m going to have my first holy communion next week. Yay!

I’m not gonna make this intro too long, so let’s hop right into the blog post! Let’s go!

Ok. So I wake up in the morning in my bed. By the way, I use this special headgear thing as a sleeping mask.

You can make it a shower cap, a headband, a tube shirt, a face mask, an emergency (but really tight, I tried it) skirt, etc. I bought it in a store on Balesin island 3 years ago.

I use about three blankets. According to a YouTuber, the colder the room you sleep in, the more likely you are to get nightmares. Or lose weight. (The lose weight part was sourced from one of the videos of Wengie, a YouTuber. Go subscribe to her if you haven’t already.)

I drink some cold water first thing after I wake up, which gives me energy to get up and get ready. Then, I brush my teeth. I wash my face, and I usually use Mommy Patch’s French Milled Soap, or Dove’s white soap.

Then, I brush my hair. I usually put argan oil at the tips, and I really recommend Mommy Patch’s Moroccan Argan Oil. It is also known commonly as the “Liquid Gold” of Morocco.

Then, I put on my school uniform. I usually wear a sweater or jacket over it. I especially love fluffy sweaters.

For what jackets and sweaters I wear, my three favorites are: This brown Terranova jacket with fluffy white accents, this grey jacket with a slightly copper zipper, and this white sweater with pink heart gems on it.

I also wear this purple and white angel wing bracelet from The Craft Central, this purple Blueberry watch which was similar to Michelle Obama’s Toy Watch  (it’s a real watch brand), and these black glasses (I’m nearsighted) with Disney characters on the sides.

After that, I usually get my hair done by my mom. Instead of using hair gel, I use Mommy Patch’s lavender balm. It also works as a bite soother, a shoe cleaner, or something nice to smell. They also have a Eucalyptus balm.

I never need to pack my bag because I always do it the night before. (Tip: If your school notebooks look the same from the top, color the top corner of each notebook a different color. Then   You’ll always know which is which! Just make sure to either memorize the colors or keep a legend for the colors in your phone or in your pocket always on a piece of paper.)

After that, I head out the door. If you noticed, I didn’t eat breakfast, which is because I eat my breakfast in my car, a shiny white Volvo.

I have never rode a school bus in my life. Hah! If you’re wondering, I have this Smiggle string backpack which I use along with my other Hawk roller bag. My lunchbox is either this purple  Smiggle koala lunchbox or another backpack- like lunchbox.

Surprise, surprise: I have a breakfast-to-go idea for you! Get a mason jar, put some fruit in it, top it with yogurt, close the jar, grab a spoon and some tissue, and you are good to go!

That’s healthier than using a Nutella-to-go. Ha!

If you are a coffee type of person, instead of using a normal water bottle which spills on you when you drink lying down, use sippy cups instead. Same for tea. That’s another hack from Wengie!

If you want chips, bake pita bread until crispy. Cut up like chips. Place in a jar. Put anything you want on top, like dressing. Close the jar, grab a fork if you want, and done!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I am doing another post today, so make sure to check it out. Bye!
