With summer coming right around the corner, keep these cool summer hacks in mind!
-Keep ice cream soft--and MUCH easier to scoop--by storing the container in a Ziploc baggie when you put it in the freezer.
-To prevent drips and a sticky mess while enjoying an ice cream cone or popsicle, use a cupcake liner/wrapper around the base of the cone or stick so it drips into there rather than all over you!
-Freeze aloe cubes using an ice cube tray. Trust me, your sunburn will thank you.
-Want natural highlights? Use a bit of fresh lemon juice! Easiest way would be to squeeze about 2-5 lemons into a bowl and then transfer the liquid into a spray bottle. Spray the juice onto your hair and then head out in the sun for a bit!
-Toothpaste works wonders on easing the itch of mosquito bites.
-Water bottles can double as ice packs. Whether you use a refillable water bottle or a plastic one, it's super simple and useful. Freeze the plastic water bottles and then stick them in your cooler to keep everything nice and chill. Want a double supply of cold water?Fill the bottle up about half way and then freeze it. When it comes time to head out, fill the other half up with cold water.
-DIY beach safe: use an empty lotion bottle or deodorant.
-Keep your phone in a plastic baggie during your outdoor adventures like to the beach or river. You can still use it and it won't get covered in sand or water!
-Use a fitted sheet at the beach. Place something heavy in each corner (duffle bags, coolers, stereo, small children, etc.) in order to keep up little walls to keep OUT sand.
-Arrange condiments in a muffin tin at BBQs, cook outs, parties or at the beach. Place a cupcake liner in each slot along with a condiment. Quick and no clean up!
-Tired of burning off your finger prints on your steering wheel when you get back in your car after a long day? Keep a towel or pillowcase available. When you get out, cover the steering wheel and dash!
-Baby powder removes sand almost instantly.
-Use a hanger to organize your shades.
-Homemade bug repellent that doesn't stink: limes and cloves.
-Make yogurt and fruit popsicles for a yummy, healthy and not so messy treat. Recipe here.
-You can make your own slip n slide with a tarp, dish soap and a hose! Please be careful though!
-Freeze fruit--such as berries, strawberries and grapes--to use as ice cubes that add flavor to beverages. Nice tip to use for wine!
-Earl Grey tea bags are a nice sunburn remedy.
-Make your own garbage can for your car for long road trips using a tupperware container from Dollar Tree!
-Use a can opener to open blister packages and save your hands from the stress and cuts.
-Wrap shoes in shower caps when packing them so they don't get other items dirty.
-Carry bobby pins in a Tic Tac container.
-Keep dryer sheets in travel bags to keep everything smelling fresh.
-Use a pill organizer to keep your jewelry.
2 1/2 cups flour
2 sticks butter
6oz cream cheese
Jar of marmalade (orange or whatever the preference may be)
Preheat oven to 350°. Soften butter and cream cheese. In a large bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and flour together. Roll into a ball. Put in refrigerator.
When ready to use, roll out dough very thin. Cut with a small cookie cutter to make shapes for sandwiches. spread marmalade between two pieces of dough, repeat.
Bake until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Gather your supplies
Lay out your shirt. Cut a half circle around the base of the shirt.
Place a strip of tape across the top in order to create a line.
TEAR IT UP! This was hard and not very fun to do with a cruddy pair of scissors. If you have a box cutter, Xacto knife or a sharp pair laying around, you'll have a much better time. The idea here is to strip it and tatter the bottom half of it.
Show off your fashion skills and post a photo of your shirt! Don't forget to tag us.
