Moving hacks and Tips


Are you planning to move to another house ? If so,I have some hacks and tips for you and I hope that this transition will be smooth and stress-free. Ready?

1. Great idea. :Have a yard sale or garage sale and get rid of unused or unwanted items.You can even donate things that don’t sell.

2.First day essentials!

Pack a clear “First Day Essentials” bin filled with the things you’ll need most as soon as you arrive at your new home

3.Use plastic wrap or paper and tape to wrap silverware trays

This keeps all your flatware together and makes unpacking a breeze!wrap-your-silverware-trays-in-paper-and-tape-or-plastic-wrap.jpg

 

4. Pack spices in a large slow cooker or pot to save space.

This tip can really be applied towards any large item like baskets, trash cans, etc. Fill up their empty space with smaller items.use-larger-items-to-store-smaller-items-inside.jpg

 

5. Make your own checklist

The Galaxy Tag | DIY Galaxy


Hey guys,I don’t know about you but I’m totally amazed by the universe,the milky way,the galaxies.. so when I was on pinterest,I saw a bunch of DIY galaxy stuff and I thought that it would great to share some with you:) These DIY look extremely difficult but it’s actually very easy.

*Prepare for a splash of color on your screen * Okay,let’s get into the galaxy😛

1.DIY galaxy starbucks drink

You can make your own DIY starbucks drink at home and you’ll need edible glitter,food colouring mainly shades of blue,pink,purple .,ice,milk,vanilla ice cream,whipped cream,vanilla extract,an empty starbucks cup.

Put some ice  in the blender,then take 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream and 1 cup of milk ,and vanilla extract and put it in the blender.Blend everything.

When it’s all mixed up,divide the mixture into 3 different containers,and add the blue food color to the first container,and mix well. Repeat with the pink one for the second container and the purple for the third. After that,just take your empty cup and with the spoon,take a spatula of the blue mixture and put it in the cup,do the same with the other two colors.You can sprinkle some edible glitter between the layers,and finish it all with some whipped cream on the top but that’s optional.

3.DIY galaxy jars

“You are going to need just a few things. First, a jar , somecotton, water, glitter, paint and cotton balls.

Fill 1/3 of the jar with water
2. Add several drops of paint to the water, put the lid on and shake to mix the paint and water
3. Add a bit of glitter
4. Stretch cotton balls and add them to the water until the bottom is filled with cotton, pressing them down into the water with a stick or butter knife

Fill another 1/3 of the jar with water and add several drops of contrasting paint and repeat steps 2-4
Fill the final 1/3 of the jar with water and repeat steps 2-4 “

You just have to make use of your painting skills and you have your coool galaxy shirt.You can also throw some paint on your other stuff like your backpack as well

 

5.Galaxy bath bombs

diy-galaxy-bath-bomb

 

You’ll need

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil /essential oil
  • food coloring
  • some sprinkles (optional)

 

Put all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl, that is your baking soda, citric acid and cornstarch. Give it a good stir with a spoon.Add a few drops of essential oil at this point,the mixture will clump.Divide the mixture over several (smaller) bowls. Add a different color of food coloring to each bowl. Start by adding one drop, mix well and then add another. Because the food coloring is water based, again, you don’t want your bath bomb mixture to start fizzing! First the food coloring formed little specks in the mixture. But if you keep stirring it well it will color the whole batch.You can now add some sprinkles but don’t go too crazy with it.You can use any type of mold you like, a star shape for example would work great as well.Fill up both sides of your mold with the mixture. Press it down tightly as you go. Fill up each half until it’s somewhat overflowing.Leave it to cool or for some time in the refrigerator

4. Try some Yoga

fa1a0e5f00737d10f6144daa30c84bc8.jpg
It’s hard to actually do Yoga when you are in pain.What you can do is : start doing some stretching/yoga 2-3 days before you’ll be getting your period[Use phone apps to know when you are going to get your period[it’s not highly accurate but still] and the day you’ll get your period,you won’t have that much pain. And if the pain is still here,Elevate your legs a foot or two above the rest of your body with pillows.This can force your uterine muscles to relax.

 

5. Take a hot bath or use a hot heating pad/hot bottle

7. Other tips

Vitamin E may help reduce menstrual pain.Electrolytes in sports drinks,vitamins can reduce cramping.

 

Try ginger remedy ; simply crush one piece of ginger and place it in a cup of boiling water for two or three minutes. You can then choose to sweeten your ginger infusion by adding sugar. Take this home remedy three times a day after meals.

If you are getting your menses but have no pain at first,try jogging to prevent upcoming pain

Stress,smoking,alchohol are believed to contribute to pain.

When you are getting your period,rest & take a nap. Don’t burn yourself out.

Drink a lot of water,and avoid salty foods (that retain water) and drinking hot tea may help. Opt for hot soups,and take care of yourself,be happy and if you are feeling weak,eat food rich in iron.

For severe pain associated with menstrual cramps, talk to your doctor

Quick note: “Periods do not make us inferior, impure, dirty, it is a natural process that we should not regard as a taboo. It should be an open subject of discussion, boys and girls both should no longer feel uncomfortable talking about periods.”.#Breaking menstrual taboos.
