- Shopping Tip
I am a compulsive shopper, I shop when I'm happy, sad, bored, lonely, angry...basically I shop when I have any emotion at all. And that gets me in trouble! :) I also hate to try things on in the store..both of these tend to get me in trouble!
So I've figured out a system ( mind you that I am a little insane) ! If I go shopping and I find something (clothes or accessories) that I think I cant live without, I buy it..but when I get home, I leave it in the bag..and hang it on the hand of my closet door. If I use it, or wear it within a week, then I know it was a good purchase :) but if it sits in the bag for a week, then I take it back, no harm, no foul :) There have been too many times that I buy something on an impulse and it sits in my closet or in my bathroom for weeks, or months...and I got tired of pulling things out of my closet with tags still attached! So this systems saves me money in the long run, and I still get to feed my shopping addiction :) I do the same things with my older girls (one is 14 and one is 12)...if I buy them something and they dont use it or wear it within a month I take it back.
2. Hair Tip
I do hair, I've done hair for over 10 years now, and I LOVE it...one of my favorite products to use on my clients, and on myself is this....It's a 10 miracle leave in...this stuff is BANANAS! no joke, sometimes, after a really intense color, I wont even condition my clients, I just load their hair with this....and it is AMAZING...even if you have hair that NEEDS conditioned to be able to even get a brush through...this stuff does the job...
And this stuff...I put it in my color, and bleach, and then I use about a capful before I style...I use it on my own hair when I wash it at night, I put a capful ( i have long hair!) in my hands and rub it all though my hair, then I put it in a tight bun...in the morning, its SO soft!! I love this stuff...plus it smells like the islands!
