One of the biggest signs of aging is teeth discoloration, you will literally look years younger to others just by whitening your teeth. I am told all of the time how white and bright my smile is and yours can be too just by this simple home made remedy. I avoid puting traditional harsh chemicals in my mouth that are used for teeth bleaching. We all know about baking soda and salt, or baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixtures for whitening, but this one works just as great. Orange Peels and Bay Leaves! That’s it! Make sure you dry the orange peels out ( vitamin c can be harsh on your teeth), and the bay leaves should be dried and crushed finely. Put the bay leaves on the white part of the orange rind and gently rub against your chops. The combo of these will leave your smile sparkling. Caution- too much teeth brightening, even if it’s home made, can be harmful to your enamel.
Anyone who know me knows that I love a great bag! I wanted to share this HIPP designer with you and encourage you to support these creative small business owners that are bringing us amazing products that have heart and soul. HIPP & Kirk founder and designer Lauren Milroy’s journey is hardly typical. Born and raised in California, she first studied mechanical engineering and worked in the aerospace industry before attending Stanford University’s graduate program in Product Design. She honed her skills as a designer at an outdoor gear company, creating bags and researching color trends. On her time off she started her blog, Hippanonymous, where she shared her favorite finds in design, fashion, cocktails and travel. Her designs are heritage classics with a twist of color. They are inspired by the sunkissed glamour of Manhattan Beach, where the designer once lived, and by L.A’s laid-back, fun loving lifestyle – from barbecues to rooftop parties and Bikram sessions. Lauren prototypes new designs from her home studio using a 40-year-old industrial sewing machine. All her bags are manufactured in California using high-quality canvas and metal hardware. They are made to last a lifetime. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! To order for the holidays or just for yourself go to http://hippandkirk.com. Head into this New Year with style!
The only thing shiny about your look should be your personality. If a greasy guise is your demise then you should be making your own oil absorbing blotting papers! These are a useful beauty product that can keep you looking polished and shine free all day long by removing excess oil from your face. Women can use these without ruining or removing their makeup, and men, you also suffer from a slippery surFACE! All you need is an old compact case, and men you can use an old playing card case. A few sheets of rice paper ( for a less natural option you can use gift wrapping tissue paper) and a pair of scissors. Trace the interior of the case and cut the paper to fit. For those of you that require a bit more oil control you can sprinkle corn powder between the sheets. This is the only time a lack luster look is not a problem.
Grimy grippers are just plain gross. Clean, white nails are attractive no matter what gender you are! This tip will whiten and buff those pincers. Men, try adding this to your regimen when you cut your nails (hands AND feet!). This will also remove any yellow discoloration caused by nail polish ladies. Gently scrub them with toothpaste and a recycled, soft toothbrush or buffer. Gentle men, don’t overdue it. Do not use gel, use paste! Now add a few drops of lemon juice and your clutches will come alive, instead of looking dead as door NAILS!
Are you tired of faking flawless skin? Shaving shouldn’t leave you with road rash. This is your recipe for baby bottom realness. A homemade, good-for-you, version of an expensive and harsh product called Tend Skin. A product used for getting rid of ingrown hairs and razor burn. All you need is a clean, empty glass bottle, ½ cup rubbing alcohol (70% kind),1 teaspoon witch hazel and 20 uncoated aspirin! Mix everything up in your container. After you shave you just rub your concoction on the area and let it soak in. Make sure to shake well before each use on your face, legs, underarms, bikini line or wherever you decorticate. Because it’s natural, the mix should last about a week. If it starts to smell like funk, it’s time to junk and make a new batch. Don’t you just love being comfortable in your own skin!
TURN UP THE VOLUME(IZER)
Don’t fall flat when it comes to your hair. Getting closer to God is as easy as Epsom Salt! To make your own hair volumizer, mix equal parts of Epsom Salt with equal parts of your own conditioner! Heat up your conditioner until its warm ( you will have more temp control on the stove top rather than in the microwave). Now pour in an equal amount of Epsom Salt ( only make what you are going use), and apply throughout the hair. Make sure to focus on areas where a more hair raising experience is desired. Now wrap your head in a warm towel for 25 minutes then rinse. When you blowout, it will even make Texas shout out, Hallelujah!
