Two Tip Tuesday

Hello everyone. I felt bad that last week I missed Two Tip Tuesday. I've been having a hard time with my little guy sleeping and it has just wiped me out. I think I've gotten so run down I may have caught a bug. I have had joint pain and headaches for a few days. I had to go to the doctor yesterday to have blood work done since I had gestational diabetes and so while they were doing that, they went ahead and ordered a Lyme's Disease and Rocky Mt. Spotted fever test just to be safe. I pulled a tick off Sawyer two weeks ago and was concerned maybe I'd have been bitten and didn't know it. I've heard of that happening to people before. So, hopefully I just have a bug and none of those tick related things.

The two tips I have for you today I heard on the radio and thought they were so clever.


We've all had times where we either have a good lipstick break, or we get to the end of the tube and there is still just a little more left. Well, I heard a great solution for what to do. You can buy the plastic cases that people use for storing their contact lenses. What you can do is take a Q-tip and get the remaining lipstick out and put it in the contact lense case. That way you can have a way to get at the lipstick and use up what is left. They said you could use a chopstick to get out the lipstick, but I think a Q-tip could work just as well. I thought this was such a clever idea.


This second tip is also for the lips. They were saying if you buy lipgloss that has the wands in them, a lot of times you loose the lipgloss because of it getting stuck to the sides. When you are getting down to the end of the tube, what you can do is screw on the top tightly and then stick the tube in some boiling water for a few seconds. This will melt the lipgloss and cause it to drop to the bottom of the tube. I'm sure you don't want to leave it in long because you don't want the whole case to melt. LOL

So, those are my two tips for this Tuesday. I hope you are having a great day!

My running buddy had Rocky Mt. Spotted Fever a couple of months ago. It is nasty stuff. I hope that's not what you have.

Good lip tips! If you know someone who wears contacts, they may have an extra case or two.
