Things Worth Sharing

Today's post is an idea that I got from Alex or HRH Collection on Youtube. She recently did a video that she called "Things Worth Sharing," and the idea behind it is that it isn't a "Monthly Favorites" post, but just random things that might be interesting or useful to share with others. Here goes!


The first thing I want to share is a trick to get more use out of a dark lipgloss. I generally like nude lips and when I say nude, I mean that beige/pinky nude that is close to my skintone. What nude lips really are are your actual lip color, and that is the look that I achieve with this lipgloss trick. I've never liked a product that is my lipcolor, but I think because it's a gloss and it gives a pretty shine, this was actually a hit with me. All you do is pull a darker colored lipgloss and wipe some of the product off before you apply it, then apply a sheer layer over your lips. It looks very natural and very pretty because of the shine and the hint of color you wouldn't get with a clear gloss.


The second thing I want to share with you guys are Gear Ties. The ones we buy are from a company called Nite Ize. What they are are reusable twist ties, essentially, and they are so handy! They come in lots of lengths and colors, but we like the 3 inch and 6 inch ones the most because they are so useful around the house. In the pictures you can see them used under a desk to keep all of the cords under control, to wrap headphones and wrapped around the cord to the Keurig to keep the cord hidden (I hate seeing the cords to appliances on the counter).


I want to share this bracelet with you guys in case you haven't seen it. I found it on Pinterest and my boyfriend surprised me with it last summer and I wear it almost everyday. It is so pretty and dainty and perfect for those of us that like to wear multiple bracelets and watch combinations but don't like to hear them clanging around on our wrists all day! It's gold filled so it won't tarnish and of course, you can personalize it with any initials. The seller on Etsy is Bellatrina Jewelry.

Yep, we are all over the place with this list you guys, but next up is the Tide to Go Pen. I had never bought one of these before (and still haven't) because they are a little expensive. I got two of them for free in a goodie-bag type thing at my college and I have them in my two most used purses. They really do work and have saved myself and my friends/family on a number of occasions. The commercials can be a little misleading because after you use it the spot does have to dry, so it isn't magically going to go away, but it only takes a couple of minutes to dry and you'll be good to go. When mine run out, I will definitely be buying more, because you'll use them more than you think.


Last but definitely not least, is my necklace holder. I always have trouble figuring out where my necklaces are going to go because most of them are so long. Before we moved, the closet had a different closet system installed but had basically this same rack that pulled out with hooks. Luckily our new place came with a closet system as well (different brand), so we were able to install one here too! It's called a Tie & Belt Rack, but it also works perfectly for necklaces! I love that it slides away so it isn't taking up space but when I pull it out, I can see everything I own perfectly.

Let me know what you guys think of this post! :)
