Is your room or dorm room looking a little drab? Not enough light or color? Maybe it's big/little reveal week in your sorority and you need some crafting ideas? Or maybe you just need some great gift ideas for birthdays and other such occasions.

Well look no further — here is a super easy and chic do it yourself project. It’s so simple that a smurf could do it.

Step One: Buy a Mason jar

Make sure to purchase a Mason jar that you like. It can be big or small. The size should depend on the space you have and how many light strands you plan to put inside it. Maybe you want a colored mason jar, it all depends on the aesthetics your going for.

Amazon, Target, and Michaels are great places to find Mason jars. The dollar store is also an option, or even dollar general.

Personalized Options.

Step Two: Buy a top for the Mason jar or drill into it

Depending on what you want, you can either drill a hole into the top of the Mason jar, or buy a designed lid. I have a pretty star lid that has a handle. The important part is to have a hole that the lights can be slipped through. You will want access to the battery pack or adapter, depending on the type of lights you purchase.

Here are tops that have designs or holes:

Star Top Hanging Mason Jar.

Lowe Cornell Transform Inserts.

Michaels example one and two.

Lids with lights attached (Ignore step three if you buy this lid.)

Step Three: Buy the lights for the Mason jar.

If you want it to be more luminous, I recommend more than one strand of lights for your jar. However, be careful not to over crowd it or it will look too clumpy. Unless that’s the look you’re going for, the fun part is it’s all up to you! I have a strand of lights that is battery operated and twinkles. You can find the lights in different colors either with a battery pack or an adapter. Some of the battery-operated lights have timers. Keep in mind that the light strands come in different lengths. You will want your Mason jar to accommodate the strand of lights you buy. Also, there are solar powered lights and flickering ones like what I have. The options are endless.

Battery Operated: Amazon, Target

Plug lights

Solar Power

Multi colored

Different colors: Red and blue

Step Four: Assembling all of your pieces together

I coiled my string of lights around my hand, so that it was a loose coil. It made it easier to put the lights into the Mason jar, as opposed to just shoving it in there. Remember to string the lights through your Mason jar top, before putting the lights into the jar.

Once the lights are in the jar, screw on the lid and Voila! You have successful made your light up Mason jar.

Keep in mind that you can do anything you want with this project. Anything outlined above are just guidelines to help you in your endeavor to make an awesome craft, gift, or personal project! You can personalize the mason jar anyway you’d like; painting it, add glitter, stickers, peoples names, sorority or fraternity letters, mix and match the color lights in the jar, or even buy a colored jar. It's all in your hands.The most important task is to have fun while creating something special. It’s super simple and easy to do. Remember it’s so easy a smurf could do it! So please get creative and share with me the wonderful Mason jars you come up with.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

3975

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
