Ways To Waste Less Food

If you’re on a budget, saving food is imperative. Even if you’re not on a budget, wasting less food is great for the environment. Check out how you can waste less food.

Start Storing Smarter- Doing small things like separating bananas rather than keeping them in a bunch, keeps them fresher longer. You could also reconsider the organization of your fridge to have everything in the right places so they last longer. Don’t put fruits and veggies in the same drawer because they spoil together. All it takes is some research.

Only Buy What You Need- Make a list before you go to the store and be sure to only add what you need. Don’t get distracted by adding extra apples or tomatoes. You could even download an app for keeping your grocery list.

Freeze Your Veggies- Get into the habit of freezing your veggies. It doesn’t take much time and it saves you a whole lot of rotten vegetables.

Make More Trips- Making more trips to the store to get what you need on a biweekly or triweekly basis is better for saving food than going for weekly trips.

Don’t Buy In Bulk- Buying in bulk is a trap. How many people are there in your family? Do you really need that many crates of produce? Things like toilet paper or foods that have long expiration dates can be bought at discount when it comes to buying in bulk. Aside from that, stay away.

Use All Your Food- Use all of your food, like all of it. Cook with every part of your food, use veggie scraps to make broth, and leftover veggies for a frittata. Using all your food will definitely keep you from wasting food.

Beauty Tips

When you don’t have enough time to do your makeup in the morning, you end up having to beatify yourself on your commute or when you get to your desk. It’s time to simplify your morning routine because your boss doesn’t need to see you applying mascara when you should be working on that report, trust me. Here are some of my favorite time saving beauty and makeup tips ..

Apply Everything With Your Fingers- Skip searching for the right brush to apply your foundation and use your fingers instead. Brushes are useful but when you have to spend an extra couple of seconds searching for the right one, it’s time to nix them out of your morning routine. Apply a cream eye shadow with your fingers, and dab your concealer under your eyes. Add mascara and you’re out the door.

Add Foundation To Your Favorite Moisturizer- Not only does adding a few drops of foundation into your favorite moisturizer create a dewy tinted moisturizer effect, it also save time on application. Try it!
Apply Your Deodorant Before Bed- Did you know that we’re meant to apply deodorant before going to sleep at night? It gives your skin time to let it activate. So apply your deodorant the right way so when you wake up you can skip yet another step to your morning routine.

Use “Two-In-One” Products- Try to use a lip and cheek tint, or a thin brown liner that doubles as an eyebrow brush. You can even use your lip balm through your hair to help tame flyaway hair. These products are handy for when you just need something as your running out the door.

Tips To Developing Your Own Style

Developing your style doesn’t have to be difficult, it can be as simple as five easy steps. You guessed it, I’ve outline  steps and tips that will help you develop your own style. It’s time to show off your personality through your clothes and play with the looks in the your closet. Check out my tips and let me know what you think!

First, Be Open- Finding your own style doesn’t mean that you have to keep to one type of style. I personally like bohemian looks along with glammed out outfits. I mix my looks around. It’s okay to be open to more than one style. It’s okay to play with style.

Find Some Base Items- Pick up some base looks that can be worn with everything. Get looks that you can build on like a plain black tank or some plain colored crop tops. Work your way up from there. I’ve been guilty of having too many patterned looks with not a lot of base tops or skirts to wear them with. It’s important to have a mix of the two.

Find What You Love- What’s in your closet that you can’t live without? Find out what your favorite pieces are, and then make a note of it. Study those pieces. This way, you know what appeals to you so you can pick out more looks that appeal to you in the same way.

Follow Fashionistas That Inspire You- Use your social media outlets to your benefit. Follow, bloggers and creatives that have a style you crave. Get inspired and use their looks to help create outfits of your own.

Movies have the ability to transport us to another world. They do this with the help set designers, editors and, most importantly, costume designers.
