Trick Number 1

Did you know that you can use white board markers on mirrors? Maybe I’m the last person to catch on, but I discovered this useful fact not too long ago. Now I write my most urgent list items on the mirror in the bathroom where I’m sure to see them several times throughout the day.

I also like to write little reminders or love notes to my husband on the mirror. When my son gets tall enough to see the mirror, I’ll write little notes to him as well. A mirror is kind of like the refrigerator – people tend to find themselves in front of it dozens of times each day, so use it to communicate positive messages and help you stay on track.

Trick Number 2

baby powder

I learned this one from a college roommate, and I’m pretty sure this is not as commonly known as the first trick, but did you know that you can use baby powder to take the oil out of your hair?

I have exceptionally oily hair. My hair looks after one day like most people’s hair looks after two or three days. I used to wash my hair every day, but that just made the problem worse. Over time I trained my hair to be less oily, but it still oily so my solution is baby powder.

You can use just a small amount of baby powder to rub into the oiliest parts of your hair, usually closest to your scalp, and the baby powder will absorb the moisture and leave your hair looking oil-free. Be careful not to use too much, or you’ll look like you’ve been a little too flamboyant with the flour.

I hope these help!!!
