Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Thick hair usually doesn’t accommodate high ponytails easily.  The weight of the hair pulling on the scalp creates headaches and hair ties slip as the day goes on – leaving us looking worn out and cranky.  If you are a lover of high ponytails (like me), I’ll let you in on my secret weapon to achieving the look I want without having to suffer from the negative side effects: DOUBLE (or triple) up on your elastics!

Raise your hand if you have floppy ear lobes!  ::raises hand::  

Having floppy ear lobes sure does make being obsessed with earrings a bit more difficult.  As soon as I put on any earring with weight, my lobes droop forward and pull a Dumbo by flopping all over the place. But, wait – I have found a solution: earring back lifters!

I always travel with my own washcloths.  Primarily, I’ve historically done so because I feel super duper guilty staining those perfectly white ones in hotels with my makeup every day.  So, I pack one washcloth per night as well as a companion ziploc bag for storage of each soiled washcloth.

Shower poufs are great tools – just dump a little body wash onto them, add a bit of water then squeeze, squeeze, squeeze until it’s filled with foamy goodness!  When keeping them in your home shower, they don’t pose much of a problem.  So what if you don’t get all the water and product out of it before you need to dry off?  Just hang it up and let it drip dry – easy peasy!  But what about when you travel with them? ::cue dangerous sounding music::
