Rock your World

I made a suggestion to Virgin Red that they missed a great opportunity for a code for #VRROCKYOURWORLD and they made it into a code for me. Love it!


Extra Pen Loop Hack

Just wanted to share this super quick extra Pen Loop tip. I like the idea of the Leuchttrum sticky pen loops but I’m far too much of a coward to stick it onto anything in case it ends up wrecking whatever I put on it. Instead I had some leather headphone loop holders lying around and thought they’d make a great extra Pen Loop.

You can attach it to one of your pens and loop it over the one in your pen loop like so:

Mine however is put on a spare hole…this is a pocket sized zipped pocket that fits well in an A6 but have have a spare hole.

I just clicked the headphone holder to it and my pen fits in it through the rings.


Removing makeup with only water!

Baby wipes are good. I’ve used them for years to remove my makeup but often I find the packet dries out before I finish them even though I store them upside down. I also find that they don’t always take my makeup off even if I use two three wipes and then can leave my face quite red afterwards too.

Then I heard about the magic eraser…the shockingly bright pink put me off it. I thought the price was a bit steep too…it was around £10-15 for one cloth. Considering I would be able to save on buying baby wipes it wasn’t a bad price but for just a wash cloth I did think it was a bit pricey.

Then I found one on Ebay. Bonus it wasn’t pink and it was a bargin at £1.09. I thought that was less than the cost of one bag of wipes and for that price if it didn’t work it wasn’t a big investment.

I can honestly I love this thing! It’s so gentle on the skin and with just water I can take off my makeup. Reuse it a couple of times and then throw it in the washing machine and let it dry and use it again. I am super impressed. My skin is also not red after using it.

It has two sides. The short side is for step one to remove the makeup. The longer side is gently exfoliate the skin and buff off any dull, dry flakey bits.

I use just water and the short side to remove my makeup and then use my cleanser to wash my face and the longer side to wash the cleanser off. My skin is left clean and feeling very refreshed without mascara running down my red face with panda eyes. Having known what I know now I would stump up he £15 to buy one at full price. I won’t be buying anymore baby wipes!
