1. Coconut oil for everything
2. Baby powder for everything else
3. Bobby pins go crinkled side down
I told this to a girlfriend recently and she gave me an embarrassed look and said, “OMG am I the only woman on Earth who never knew this and everyone is laughing at the pointy parts of my booby pins sticking up?!” The answer is no, I’m the only one laughing, which is why I’m telling you now.
The crinkled side and bent part of the booby pin are designed to go down, toward your scalp. The crinkles are supposed to keep the pins from slipping, ersomething. Try it, it works. Kate, the hair guru, even said so.
4. Lipstick doubles as blush
5. Contact lens containers for travel
I have a love/hate relationship with rules. I love to follow them but I hate stupid rules that are enacted because one idiot decided he wanted to wreak havoc on the airlines. I refuse to check my luggage if I’m just traveling for a few days and think buying mini airline sized containers for my lotions and potions is a rip off.
Instead I use contact lens cases (most bottles of solution come with a free case) for my face lotion, hair serum, and any other small quantity of liquid or gel that you need some of but less than 3 oz of on a short trip. Label with a sharpie on the top or bottom of the case. Toss at the end of your trip when your quantity is used up and voila, less to bring home!
