Top Tips Tuesday #4 and #5

I forgot about last week so here's two tips for you today:

Tip 1
Everyone goes through the day doing a load of things and, sometimes, you get extremely busy you forget to do one thing. Whether it's a big or small task, it's something that needs to be done. So, what do we do about it?

I got this idea from one of the other volunteers at our charity shop. She's giving me her sewing machine since she doesn't know what to do with it and needed a way to remind herself. 

Want to guess what she did? 

She wrote the reminder on a post-it note, folded it and put it in her bra. That way, she'll get the reminder when she gets changed and she won't forget. If the reminder isn't really needed until the next day or two, she can re-write the reminder on her calendar, schedule etc. It sounds weird but it does work. 

Tip 2
If you're an arty person like myself, you might find this tip very useful. 

So, if you spend your life drawing with pencils, oil pastels, charcoal etc. (basically, any type of media that smudges) you need a can of hairspray within your arsenal of art supplies.

After you finish your piece of art, pray the whole thing with hairspray and leave it to dry. The hairspray stops it from smudging. If you're like me and you're currently doing art coursework, this is extremely handy. You'll be reassured that your piece won't get smudged if you put it into your art book or folder.

With black and white pencil drawings, the white spaces will stay white. No grey dust will creep into it!

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x
