5 GIFTS TO GET YOUR GIRLFRIEND UNDER $20!!

If you're a male & you're reading this, most likely today is the anniversary of the day you & your girlfriend first met and you totally forgot! Perhaps the only change you have on you is a twenty dollar bill ($20). So you decided to take to Google to solve your dilemma on what you should get for bae. Well, you came to the right place! Without further ado here are 5 GIFTS TO GET YOUR GIRLFRIEND UNDER $20! 


1. Skincare Products

If she's into the whole skin routine thing, buy her, her favorite skincare product, maybe she ran out of her last one. If you have no clue what her favorite skincare product may be then just purchase her the "Black Face Mask". It's a face mask that extracts whiteheads from the skin. It's really good!


2. Make-Up

Whatever you do, please don't guess the shade of your girlfriend's skin and choose her make-up for her, so disrespectful! Instead purchase her favorite shade of lipstick, or lip gloss. You may even want to go all out and get her an eyeliner. But remember that you're balling on a $20!


3. Cute NoteBook or Planner

Ensure that you know her sense of style. You wouldn't want to get her a pink planner with daisy flowers dangling from it when really her favorite color is black and she fancy red balloons.


4. Candy Yum-Yum

You literally could never go wrong with sweets or her favorite snack. Simply purchase as much candy as possible a $20 dollar bill can buy, place it in a mason jar, stick the words, "I love you" on it (and mean it) and you're good to go. You can thank me later.


5. Cute 3d Smartphone Case

It doesn't matter if she's rocking team Apple or team Android every girl is deserving of a phone case that suites her. With a $20 you most likely can get her two.


(P.s. Remember to remove the price tag before giving her your gift!). If you enjoyed today's post don't forget to share it with friends & follow us on G+ and Instagram at basedonyou.bytye!

HOW TO KEEP UP WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL ROUTINE IN 2018?!!

Last year 2017 was a blissful year for me. I've completed the, "What Does The Bible Really Teach?", book, had a zealous share in the field ministry, was given the wonderful privillege to serve as volunteer in Jehovah's House and on July 8th 2017 I was finally baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses! I was & still am very happy! By the way you guys should check out our website jw.org, it teaches Bible truths and provides answers to popular questions like, "Where Is The Dead?" or "Will Suffering Ever End", and more. Just use the search engine on the website and type in a question that you are curious about and I guarantee you'll find the answers right from the bible! On the contrary, after my baptism I started to slow down on my study of the bible. Although I was attending our Christian meetings and participating in the field ministry, my zest for it just wasn't there, especially after experiencing tribulations. However, this year I intend to be more consistent in my study of the bible because at Matthew 5:3 Jesus said, "Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need..." So without further chatting let's see, "HOW TO KEEP UP WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL ROUTINE IN 2018?!!".

1. Create A Spiritual Time Table

The first step to getting your spirituality back on track is organization! Create for yourself a spiritual time table and state exactly what you intend to do on each day of the week. Perhaps you would like to do your personal study of the bible or learn from the examples of bible characters on a Monday. .Be sure to be honest with yourself when making your spiritual time table because we want to keep up with a steady spiritual routine. Keep in mind that you must pray, read your Bible and the daily text everyday.


2. Daily Notifications

Now that you've made your physical time table its time for you to use that feature on your smartphone called a calender and notification button to remind you throughout the day to keep up with what you wrote down. If necessary, do so on every device you own because we do not want to miss a day of our spiritual meal. Always think of it like this, when a person continues to eat unhealthy food or misses his meals everyday, he is in danger of becoming sick or even worst, death! Likewise, we want to make wise use of our time to take in accurate knowledge of our Creator rather than entertaining ourselves daily with what the media has to offer. Just remember this keyword, balance, and you'll be good to go!



3. Get A Spiritually Mature Friend To Help.

You would want to let a spiritually mature friend know of your goal so that you both can encourage one another. They can also act as a human reminder if you continue to ignore your digital ones. Spiritual best friends are the best ones to keep around!


4. Pray

Pray for Jehovah to give you his holy spirit to start and keep up with your spiritual routine. Remember you cannot do this alone! The bible says at 1 Peter 5:8, "Keep your senses, be watchful! Your adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour someone." You will experience hardships but please do not put down the bible because Satan will use that as an opportunity to step in and draw you away from Jehovah, believe me I know this all too well. Instead do as James 4:8 says and, "draw close to God, and he will draw close to you...". 




5. Set Spiritual Goals & Get Started
James 2:26, "Indeed, just as the body without spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead". We cannot simply say that we love God and continue to go day by day without learning at least one thing about him from his inspired word, in this case it's best we never mentioned our love for him in the first place. To show genuine love for Jehovah God, and his son Jesus Christ we must set spiritual goals and meet them. When we do this we will without a doubt make his heart rejoice-- Proverbs 27:11.

Although we are living in times where the world is foreign to God it doesn't mean we have to be. The bible promises that there will be a time when all pain, suffering and all the madness will be gone (Psalm 37:10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;You will look at where they were,And they will not be there.) In the main time let us try our best to live in a spiritual paradise now so that we can enjoy future blessings!

DAIRY OF A LAZY GIRL PT. 8 (FIVE WAYS TO TELL YOUR CRUSH YOU LIKE THEM)

Welcome to 2018 B.O.Y.S (Based On You Subscribers)🎉🎉!! Is what I should've said January 1st. By now you've probably made up a list of things you hope to accomplish this year but know all too well that you are most likely going to start off great then gradually drift away from your goals because you realize that you're too lazy to even grab the remote from the table two inches away from you because you've already gotten comfortable binge eating a bag of potatoe chips and watching your favorite television series. (Psst! By the way I've just started watching The Flash and I must say that series is amazing, minus the romance). Okay, enough of my negative speech. Both Tye and I have faith that you all will achieve whatever it is you hope to accomplish this year! That being said, if you want to know 5 FIVE WAYS TO TELL YOUR CRUSH YOU LIKE THEM this year, I will advice you to keep reading. P.s. all of these are awful suggestions by the way.
1. Go Up To Them & Tell Them.

Right now most of you are probably going like, "ain't no way in hell I am going to do this one, skip!", but how else is that special someone ever going to know if you don't say something. Try conversing with them when they aren't surrounded by their friends. However, I don't suggest that you abrutly go up to them and tell them you have this burning desire to make children with them, especially if they have no clue who you are. That'll just be weird. Try getting to know them first, but don't make yourself look too available otherwise they'll just drop you in this box called, "The Friend Zone". The point is, if you and your crush is already close, just open your mouth and let your heart do the talking. Man I should really be a poet...oh wait, I am.

2. Confess Your Love Through Text

Remember when Chase from Zoey101 sent a text message to Zoey confessing how he felt about her, but then she never recieved that text because she dropped her phone in the water fountain. Ha! Funny! But... I'm sure that wouldn't happen to you...I think. Anyway, if you're too shy *cough chicken cough*, to tell your crush you like them in person, technology can solve this problem for you. Just text them.
3. Tell Your Crush's Best Friend To Tell Your Crush You Like Them.

Again, the coward way out, but hey, at least you did something. If you are friends or cool with your crush's best friend ask them to tell your crush how you feel about them. I can see why most people who fear rejection use this method, its protects their pride and it saves them from breaking down in tears in front of their crush when they've been declined. Smart thinking buddy.

4. Write a Letter

Well well well, I guess chilvary is not dead!
Okay, so maybe this one is corny, but if you're too shy to let your mouth do the talking, let a note do it for you. The good thing about the note is, you can simply deny ever writting it if all fails because that 'clearly' was not your handwritting. So if you normally write in print, write the note in cursive. Just a plan B for those who despise rejection.


5. Play A Game

Oh this is so clever but sneaky! This is by far my favorite one. Try playing a game of Truth or Dare or come up with something creative of your own and then... you confess your burning love them...and still get rejected. I'm just messing with you!



I hope you enjoyed this article and if you did comment below and share it with your friends or crush so they'll take a hint! Also if you wish to see more fun posts like this don't forget to follow/subscribe (same dif) to the "Based On You" Family! Until Next time, yours truly, Tye!

16 THINGS WE ARE ALL GUILTY OF!!



1. Stalking your crush's social media.

Listen, as long as you don't threaten to take the boy/girl's life for refusing to love you, then that's perfectly normal. You're just trying to run a background check on what your future husband/wife would be like. Just don't happen to like one their pictures by mistake. Awkward!

2. Saying that we're over our exes or crushes but still secretly holding feelings for them.

Seriously if you're not over your ex, do not jump into new relationship because you're not only hurting yourself but also someone else.

3. Procrastinating when we have important things to do.

Remember when 2016 was ending and we were about to start 2017 and we wrote down on our list of things not to do in 2017--"procrastination". Yeah, the majority of us broke that rule and probably will continue to break it in 2018 because, let's face it, life is filled with pretty awesome distractions.

4.Saying we didn't see a person's message.

Here's how you fix that problem, stop lying and just tell the person that they are valueless to you hence, you ignored their messages for whole week until they decided to text you again to ask, "why did you seen me?". Okay don't be so cold, it was just a joke!
5. Liking our own social media pictures from someone else's smartphone.

And the jury finds all of the defendants....guilty! Admit it you did this before. In fact multiple times.

6.Set our alarms for a specific time but never wake up to that time.

So how many of you jotted down, "actually waking up when my alarm rings instead of hitting the snooze button for five more minutes of shut eye, but then wake up an hour later", on your goals for 2018. No?! Well you should, it shows that you're mature now.

7. Tell ourselves we're going to get healthy but then break the rules by buying a bunch of junk food.

"Heey, it's called treating yourself. Five push ups are hard for beginners you know!". In all seriousness we really need to get healthy again, these mini heart attacks aren't joking.

8. Constantly saying we're going to cut off our "fake friends" yet still keep them around.

Let's be real, you can't 'cut' Trisha off because she's your only means of transportation to and from work/school and you already made up your mind that you were too lazy to walk. So unless you're serious about throwing away the trash, we're not going to talk about how you dislike fake friends.

9. Talking To Ourselves.
No? Just me? Pretend like I never said this one. NEXT!

10. Look for the easiest way to finish a simple task but later find ourselves having to do more work because we tried to find a shortcut. 

Ever tried reaching for the tv remote from the table in front of you, but you didn't want to get up so you either reach really far to get it or used your foot as a substitute for your hand to get it off the table but then the remote fell on the ground and now you have to get up and do it anyway. Yeah, that's a symptom of laziness.


11. Sending a voicenote and playing it again to hear how you sound.


12. Saying something tastes awful but still proceeded to eat it.

13. Watching Everyone's profile pictures On Whatsapp.

14. Lazy Texting




15. Overthinking some of the smallest things that you did.
Perhaps you've behaved in a way that you normally don't. Maybe you've danced at a party where everybody else was dancing as well and enjoying themselves, but you flashback to that moment and thought, "oh my goodness I danced horribly, maybe someone saw that, I want to die now". Relax! No one cared.

16. Planning your dream wedding on Pinterest.

Girls are guilty of this. We know you started a whole wedding board for when John finally asks you to marry him! I have a question for you though, do you also watch "Say Yes To the Dress", because I am in love with that show!

HOW TO MAINTAIN A NEW PIERCING?!!

Quick disclaimer, this is not a vlog. However, if you do wish to see the video of me getting my second piercing comment down below.

Part of the teenage phase is going out and trying new things, no matter how stupid those things may be. (Don't do drugs or get tattoos kids!). That being said...B.O.Y.S (Based On You Subscribers), 'ya' girl got herself a second piercing! Unfortunately I'm not 18 yet so it took a lot of badgering, manipulating and debating with my parents on why I should get one in the first place but, I finally got it professionally done on Wednesday, December 27, 2017!! I'm so proud of myself! Okay, okay, that's enough of my bragging for the day. If you are planning on getting an additional ear piercing in the future, you'll have to learn how to keep it sanitized to avoid infections and to prevent the hole from closing up again. That's where today's tips come in.

1. Clean Your Piercing With Alcohol

This will be the first thing your piercer will tell you to do. Wash your hands then use a Q-Tip or cotton ball and apply some alcohol onto the cotton ball then gently dab it on the piercing. It may sting a little. This will keep your new piercing sterilized and prevents the hole from closing. Try doing this once or twice every week or two.

2. Keep Turning the Earring In Your Piercing.

Doing this will again keep the hole open and also prevents the ear from healing while in the earring is still inside the ear lobe. 

3. Avoid Wearing Fake Earrings

If you are allergic to fake earrings I will advise you not to put them in your ear as it will cause a break out. And in order for the ear to recover from the break out, you will need to remove the false earring from the ear and while your ear lobe is healing, your new piercing will too, and that's the last thing we want to happen! So tell your boyfriend you'll need real ruby earrings boo!

So these are my three (3) simple tips on how to maintain your new piercing. I don't know about you guys but, this year truly was a blessing for me. I challenged myself in ways I never could've imagined and never regretted one day of it! I really am looking forward to 2018 (psst! also when I'm getting my third piercing but don't tell my parents. Lol.). Hope you guys enjoyed this post and if you did, like, share, follow and comment below! Until next time, yours truly, Tye!
