Hello! I hope that you are doing as you are reading this. I have to admit that I am just like the rest of you when it comes to having certain celebrities that capture your attention with their choice of fashion sense (or the stylist they pay for that fashion sense~LOL), Hair, Make-up, etc... You get where I am going with this right?! We all have this list of celebrities who we love to know so we can raid their closets in order get the "can't be seen in the same stuff twice" from them (admit it, don't act like I would be the only one to day dream about that perk from being friends~ lol)! To me Kerry Washington is one of those celebs I have on my list. I have seen alot of movies in which she stars. And I just love her "natural" make-up that she pulls off each and every time. I hope that you enjoy the photos of her that I have posted until next time! Enjoy...

Random Tips # 3

Hi, Everyone! I am here with more tips for you guys. Hopefully, you will find them useful like the other ones..Enjoy!

~ Ran out of lotion or conditioner?  Cut open the containers of the product(s) to expose the remaining product that is still in there. I always do this before throwing the bottles. There often a good bit of product to still use.  ***be careful when doing so, in order to make sure that you don't injure yourself***

~Cleaning tarnished jewelry: Products needed: baking soda, aluminum foil, and a large glass dish. How to use it: Line the dish with foil and place your jewelry on top- just don't overcrowd too much. Sprinkle with baking soda, cover with boiling water, and let it all soak for 10 minutes. (The tarnish gets transferred to the foil. And everything will come out looking shiny).

~ Pillow case containers make great containers to use when you travel or even for handbag. They are really durable plus since they are clear you can see what is inside.

~ Almost out of lip gloss.. Place the gloss in a cup of hot water and in about 15 minutes the last of the lip gloss that is in the sides if tube will reached by the applicator.

Until next time...Xoxo!
