In a Pinch

Being a student, and not always having a lot of money at my disposal, I've learned a few tricks on how to get by for a while without certain products. Here are some of the things that I've learned.

1. Mascara can double as liquid eyeliner

I wear liquid eyeliner every day and one day before going to class I realized I had used up all my eyeliner, and in a panic I used the little brush from the liquid eyeliner and dipped it into my mascara tube. I painted it on just like I normally would if it had been liner and guess what? It not only worked, but it lasted longer than my eyeliner usually does! 

2. Conditioner works better than shaving cream

One of my friends posted on Pinterest about how you can use conditioner as shaving cream, so when I ran out of shaving cream, I tried it. It did work very well, and the conditioner made my skin super soft!

3. Curtain rods can be used for more hanging space

The only thing I don't like about my apartment, is that I only have a tiny wardrobe to hang clothing, so I bought a curtain rod, and attached it between my wall, and my wardrobe, and it hasn't fallen yet and I've had it up since the beginning of August, so I guess it works! And it has given me a ton of extra space to hang things.

I will have to do another post related to this, as I seem to come up with new solutions to the things I either don't have or run out of. It's quite the adventure. Anyways, I am currently working on another headband craft (I have a headband obsession) and will be back soon to post it!

Love, love
