If you listen to music all the time, you might be familiar with the struggle of it never being loud enough. Sometimes you just want to blast it and have a dance party with your friends, but your iPhone just doesn’t get that loud. Speakers are expensive or sometimes you forget to bring it with you somewhere but what is a good party without loud music you can scream along with, without anyone actually hearing your voice?

You can make your own speaker quickly and with objects you probably already own! These speakers use the same objects, for the most part, so if you don’t like one, you can easily try the other until you see which you like best. Feel free to decorate them how you’d like and make them your own!

These speakers are a major life hack, perfect to use when you just want a mini dance party in your room.

1. Solo Cup Speaker

All you have to do is play your music and put your phone in a cup! It will not be super loud but you will definitely hear a difference.

2. Empty Soda Can and Toilet Paper Roll

For this one, all you need are clean, empty soda cans and the cardboard from a toilet paper roll. All you need to do is cut a hole in the sides of two soda cans, big enough for the toilet paper roll to fit in. Cut a hole in the middle of the roll to stick your phone in. Lastly, secure the toilet paper roll between the two cans.

3. Cups and a Paper Towel Roll

This speaker is very similar to the one above. You cut a hole on the side of each cup, and secure an empty paper towel roll between them. Once you have the hole for your phone in the paper towel roll, get ready to sing and dance the day away.

4. Empty Pringles Can

An excuse to finish a can of Pringles? Fine, I’ll take it. Once you finish a can of Pringles, clean it out and stick about 14 inches of toilet paper inside. Tape a binder clip to each side so it stays up, cut a hole for your phone, and of course, play your music!

5. A Toilet Paper Roll

This one is super simple. All you have to do it cut a hole in a toilet paper roll to put your phone in and stick a tack on each side so it doesn’t tip over.

So invite your friends over, create your perfect playlist, and enjoy these speaker hacks!

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.

I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.

I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!

If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!

One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.

When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0795/1599/t/248/assets/menstrual-equity-slider-1.jpg?226286

For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
