A Week In Outfits & an A-Ha Use For Lint Roller

Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope my east coaster friends are enjoying the unseasonal warm weather this week. I surely did. I took the Friday afternoon off to take care of my trusty Odyssey - her tires are wearing off and she needed 4 new tires. After $478 swiped off my credit card, she came out happy and new again. For some reason, this reminded me of how expensive handbags are. $478 can get you half of a bag if you are lucky, and for some bags, this pays 10% down payment. And you all know what brand I'm talking about. :) During the one hour wait for my car to come out, I enjoyed a nice stroll in the parking lot of the BJ's shopping center, finding my jacket over a summer dress too warm for a March day.

I hope I haven't bored you too much yet with outfits after outfits. Here's the exciting part of this post - well, at least for me it is. This morning I went through my morning routine as usual. When I was ready to put my makeup on, I noticed how filthy my Urban Decay Naked Eye shadow box was. Well, it was dirty for a while, but I couldn't clean it because the box was covered with a felt-like material. The more you wipe it the dirtier it gets. The dust just gets smudged in. But this morning, I knew exactly what to do. I took out my lint roller and rolled it across the top of the box. The result was phenomenal. One roll, it went from filthy to clean. I was so excited that I couldn't wait to share this to you all. This method can be used to clean anything with felt like surface, for example, some jewelry boxes.  Yes, this morning I had a "I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express" moment. Hope you find this trick useful.
