Today I’m here doing a collaboration with the lovely Jess from ChocolateDrops. We have really similar blogs and I’m so glad she found me because she’s so lovely & I can’t wait for her posts! You should all go to follow her because she’s amazing & deserves all of you lovelies!
So, for this post I’m doing a life hacks post, and I’m only doing eight because I couldn’t find ten interesting ones! Hopefully these will help you all out or at least find you trying something new.
- Using dryer sheets over a hairbush will reduce hair static-ness (is that a word?). Basically it will stop your hair from being static and also give it a nice smell.
2. Spray bobby pins with hairspray before you put them into your hair to make them hod for longer.
3. Iphone chargers are horrible, if we’re all brutally honest. I mean, who hasn’t had a charger from apple that hasn’t broken? If you put a small spring, like from around a pen on the charger, you can bend it and hold it at any angle and it will prolong the life of your charger.
4. An empty chap stick (or any lip balm stick) is a great way to hold notes when travelling abroad. You can conveniently keep it in your pocket and go out with money but not needing to bring a bag, which is great because in hot weather nobody wants to be lugging around a bag to just have your purse in it. Also, if someone took your bag they’d just think it was a lip balm, not your money!
5. To remove a stalk from a strawberry easily then use a straw. This is so easy and doesn’t waste as much strawberry as it would to cut the top off.
6. When using selotape (or duct tape or washi tape, whatever tape you use), loosing the end of it is such a pain every single time you use it. If you put a paperclip on the end of the tape you shouldn’t loose it and it will be very easy to find when you need to use it next.
7. If you tie rubber bands around the very ends of coat hangers it will stop clothes from falling off them, as they tend to do every time I hang up my clothes.
8. When you buy new shoes and they fit, but just that bit too tight and you know that when you walk in them you’re sure to get a blister, this is how to stop that. Wear some thick, winter socks and then put your new shoes on and blow them with a hairdryer. This will expand the shoes to a comfortable size.
So guys, thats all the life hacks I have for this post. If you didn’t remember this was a collab with Jen from ChocolateDrops who was linked at the start so please go check out her blog!!
