Throughout the years I have suffered the loss of beloved pieces in my wardrobe to stubborn stains that seem to pop out of nowhere. The most tragic spill I endured was not even my fault, which makes it even more obnoxious to relive. It was freshman year, I had just received a two piece set from the Avril Lavigne collection at Kohl’s in collaboration with Alice and Wonderland. Of course, it was a white set with thin black stripes, chains on the pocket, and suspender shorts too. We did not even make it through first period together before the girl behind me somehow managed to spill her hot tea all over me, ruining the set forever. The rest of the day I sported the upmost fashionable grey and black p.e. uniform. After trying multiple stain removers, it was time to lay the best two set piece to rest.
Yes, my story is a bit dramatic but there is nothing worse than getting a stain and knowing your clothing item is forever gone, thrown into the Saturday rag pile. Recently I received a stain at work on a sweater but luckily a coworker had supplies on hand. First, I tried the famous Tide to Go stick, which lightened the stain but it was still visible. Next, I was urged to try Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover which did the trick after it was run through the washing machine.
After having success with Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover, I was curious if it would work on stains I previously received from early in the week to the month prior. The store clerk even raved about the products success on set in stains, it seemed like I hit the holy grail of stain removers. Right there I purchased two of Grandma’s stain remover products with a smug smile on my face. I thought if this thing truly worked then I would never have to live in fear of putting my most beloved pieces at risk again.
Tutorial & Live Review
Hope you all enjoy this review. What item of clothing have you lost from a stain and what did you use to try to revive it?
If you are a true diva fashionista you check the tag prior to purchase to receive the full run down. One of the most important factors of course is the materials and care instructions. Does the dreaded word iron appear or not? While I attempt to stay away from fabrics that are prone to wrinkling, it seems as if there are always a couple of pieces that wrinkle up from time to time. If you are anything like me and dread dragging out the iron and ironing board, it is time to make a change.
The main reason I sought out a steamer was to press my “studio” background more efficiently. This little beauty is amazing yet so small. Simple to use and so much faster than dropping over the huge fabric and rotating it across a traditional ironing board. No more running late to work or ditching your favorite outfit due to some wrinkles. The Bizond heats up almost instantly and is ready to go. Feeling skeptical? I would be too which is why I want you to see it in real time for yourself, watch the video below.
Anxiety has been a constant roller coaster that I am tired of being on. After some research on how to surpass anxiety I came across aromatherapy as an all-natural remedy. The company Plant Therapy came up as a premium brand for aromatherapy, so I purchased the pre-diluted roll-on Worry Free Synergy.
While I’ve owned Get Bendy for a couple of years now, I recently committed to set aside time for myself to stretch four days a week. Taking out my tablet to follow the Get Bendy program always seemed draining, mainly because the tablet was a bit outdated that I had installed it on. Needless to say, it would shut off every other page, which led me to printing out the Get Bendy Guide.
Summer is one of those seasons when I want to break out those squeaky clean white on white shoes. Then the little voice in the back of my mind goes through a checklist of the day’s activities to protect the innocence of those beautiful white sexy chucks. The wet grass, dust, dirt, the possibility of someone spilling something on them.
As an artist, sketching, doodling and so on are a huge part of my creative expression outlet. Since tablets came into existence, I have always been a more paper and #2 pencil kind of person. The first tablet I tried was a Samsung that came with a stylist specifically for drawing, I fell in love. However, after a couple years it starts to lag due to upgrades past it’s capabilities. Long story short, I decided to try the iPad for the first time when they came out with the Apple Pencil, specifically for university and sketching.
This is one of my favorite apps that I use multiple times in the week. It is essential to finding my car at the large unmarked university parking lots or even finding my way back to a certain spot. The app pinpoints your location and saves it by pressing the pin button. On your way back simply hit the arrow and it will route back to the pin. Overall it takes the stress away from remembering exactly what turns I took in order to find my way back or how far away I really parked the car.
