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::
