Ankle Biters

I attended a friend's mostly-outdoor party on Monday, and come back with a DIY to share and mosquito bites aplenty. My ankles and feet are getting torn up from scratching, so I've been inspired to think up a few solutions.
1. Socks. Sure, it's summer, but some Bobby socks with Mary Jane's work with sundresses and shorts as well as winter coats. I use gray socks from Gap and these wonderfully inexpensive, canvas Mary Jane's from Urban Outfitters (pictured).
2. Anti-Itch Lotion. I know it seems obvious, but it's incredible how many people forget about this little wonder. It's  available at drug stores like CVS or Walgreen's.

Now, for the DIY I mentioned!

How to Go Glow-Stick Bowling: Illustrated Version

You'll Need:
1. A few packages of glow sticks; you'll need about fifteen individual ones
2. Ten plastic water bottles, filled with water.

Crack the glow sticks (to make them glow), and put them in the water bottles. Tighten the lids, and line them up in a bowling formation. Use the extra glow sticks to form a lane, and wallah! Now you just have to wait for dark, and bowl! It's very simple, and very fun- especially in large groups of people.

When all is said and done, it looks a bit like this. Enjoy!
