I was chatting long-distance with a friend today about how much we love summer and how great it is to be able to throw on a sundress in the morning and just get on with the day. No more thermals, and tights, and jeans, and long sleeves, and sweaters, and boot socks, and scarves, and down jackets, etc., etc.! Oh the fashion freedoms provided by simple sunshine and warm weather! The only fashionista problem I run into this time of year are those pesky bra straps. I’m not a fan of strapless bras, or “sticker bras” and much prefer to just wear my regular, everyday bras every day. Here is where my little bra-clip heroes come into play. I found these things years ago at a dollar store and thought that all women-owned a few. But in my conversation today with my friend, I realized that not everyone regularly chats about concealing their bra straps and not everyone knows the secrets of these little clips! Just in case you fall into the bra-strap-challenged category, let me give you a quick tip on how to hide bra straps.

So, when you throw on that summer dress that doesn’t have short sleeves or a perfect “tank top” neckline, you are faced with this. And let’s face it, this looks kind of tacky.

What you need are bra clips! You can find these at Target, Forever 21, Walmart, and the Dollar Store (if you are lucky).

And here is a little bra clip hack for you: If you are really in a pinch, you can use a butterfly paperclip as a bra clip. Bra clips are most traditionally used to pinch your bra straps in the back when you are wearing a racer-tank style shirt or dress, but they are versatile and can be used in several ways.

To use a bra clip, you simply lengthen your straps until comfortable and then slide one strap over the plastic notch.

Repeat this step on the other side and then slide the bra clip down out of sight. I have a white, black, and nude colored clip so they disappear under clothing.

Tada! No more unsightly bra straps! You’re welcome! Happy Pinning :)

Face Routine on a Weekly Base That Will Make Your Face Look Younger

Face routine that the Japanese ladies have known for centuries – the surprising skin healing benefits of rice! Applying rice bran oil, rice bran powder and rice water on your skin can change the texture and clarity of the skin, meaning it can make skin smooth and eliminate dark spots. Also, you can enrich your diet with rice and use its antioxidant powers.

Rice is a rich source of linoleic acids and squalene, a powerful antioxidant that promotes the collagen production in the skin. It is a substance that keeps skin from wrinkling. In addition, squalene protects the skin from sun damage. A large amount of vitamin E and gamma-oryzanol are present in rice as well, which protects heart health and lowers cholesterol.
Rice has astonishing effects in skin rejuvenation and not many people know this, except the Japanese.

We will give you a recipe for a rice-based mask that softens wrinkles and makes your skin glow.

To prepare the mask, you will need:

  • 3 tablespoons rice
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

After you boil the rice, strain it and put aside the water in which the rice boiled. Add a spoon of heated milk in the rice and mix them. After you stir the mixture well, add honey to it.

Apply the mask on clean, dry skin and let it dry. Afterward, take off the mask and wash your face with water in which the rice boiled.

Rice water has antioxidant and healing properties that moisturize the skin and improve circulation, avoid age-related spots and ease inflammation. Rice water will give you healthy, clear and more moisturized skin. Also, it offers you mild sun protection.

Tips To Remember While Using a hydrogen peroxide treatment to remove blackheads

  1. Never over-exfoliate your skin as it will irritate your skin and remove more stratum corneum than it should. This is a layer of bonded, dead skin cells that prevent your skin from losing moisture and keeps infection away.
  2. If you do not want to use hydrogen peroxide on your skin, you can opt for lemon juice instead. This is another great home remedy for acne and pimples as well as for removing scars.
  3. If you prefer, you can use salt instead of sugar to exfoliate your skin. However, remember that salt will make your skin dry. Sugar is a humectant, which means that it helps in drawing moisture from the air to your skin. It is also a good source of alpha hydroxy acid, which keeps the sebum plugs in your pores soft.
  4. Always be careful to avoid contact with your eyes when you use hydrogen peroxide. If it gets into your eyes, rinse off with water immediately. If you experience any problems, visit a medical professional at once.
  5. Use an exfoliating scrub 1 to 2 times a week. This will work on the pores and prevent blackheads from appearing on your skin.
  6. Always use a mild face cleanser and moisturizer to help soothe and heal your skin. All-natural products are best, especially when you have acne and other skin problems.

When it comes to blackhead removal treatments, one of the most effective is hydrogen peroxide. As this problem is hard to get rid of, you need to use something that can dissolve the blackheads, which this peroxide will do with great efficacy. With this treatment, you can remove blackheads and scars and get skin that looks bright, clear and radiant.

11 Lazy Way to Stay Skinny

“Enjoy the foods you love in moderation,” encourages Amy Shapiro MS, RD, CND, of Real Nutrition NYC. “No single food makes you gain weight, the portions are what matters.”

You’ve heard this before. Etiquette author Emily Post believed that a polite lady should put down her fork between every bite, a technique that also helps you realize when to stop eating before you feel bloated.

“Vegetables are filled with fiber and water so they fill you up without filling you out,” says Shapiro

“Whether it be coffee, salads, soups, frozen yogurt,” says Stephanie Middleberg, MS, RD, CDN of Middleberg Nutrition. “If you want to be small, order that way.”

“If you can’t limit pick-able foods (chips, nuts, grapes, candy, etc.), then make sure you stick to single serving portions, such as handheld fruit, individually-wrapped hummus, nut or nut butter packets,” Middleberg explains.

“Both fill you up with low calories and leave less room for the main course,” tells Shapiro.

Shapiro warns, “It’s just empty calories. My clients follow the pick your “poison” rule: Bread, Drinks or Dessert. You can enjoy one but not all.”

“When we eat out, portions are normally double what we need,” explains Middleberg. “The beauty here is that you can eat what you like, just less of it.”

“We get confused and believe that we are hungry when we really are just thirsty. Aim for eight glasses of water a day, add lemon for a flavor and vitamin boost!” adds Shapiro.

“Don’t restrict yourself all day and then break down at night.” Middleberg promises, “If you eat more substantially during the day, the nighttime grazing will taper.”


“If you are hungry, reach for fiber-rich snacks that fill you up on fewer calories like popcorn, fruit, trail mix,” Shapiro says.

How To Naturally Get Rid Of Canker Sores In Minutes With No Medicine

Have you ever had a sore in your mouth that hurt pretty bad? Did it take forever to go away? You probably had a canker sore.

So just what is a canker sore? Canker sores (aphthous ulcers or aphthous stomatitis) are small ulcers or lesions located in the mouth usually at the base of the gums in soft tissue. Canker sores can also be located on the inner lining of the cheeks, the tongue, and the inside of your lips.

Canker sores are not contagious and usually go away on their own within 1-2 weeks.

Canker sores can be painful however, and you can quickly get rid of them if you follow the tip I am about to give you…but first let's talk about the symptoms of canker sores.


Common symptoms of canker sores are:
  • A tingling or burning sensation appears usually on the inside of the mouth 24 hours before it appears.
  • A white, gray or yellow crater appears inside the mouth with a red border surrounding it.
  • The sores become quite painful and it can be hard to drink or eat with the pain.
You may also experience the following: (these symptoms are much less common)
  • Fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Feeling run down, or sluggish
Contact your doctor or dentist if canker sores last more than 3 weeks, if you have a fever or if they start to spread throughout your mouth.


Many confuse canker sores with fever blisters or cold sores. They are not the same.

Fever blisters or cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). They are contagious and usually appear on the outside of the mouth or lip area.

Canker sores are not caused by a virus and are not contagious. It can be difficult to get rid of a canker sore, however, I have a sure proof solution to help you get rid of a canker sores pain within minutes.


It can be hard to heal a canker sore because it is inside your mouth. It is very moist and that can make it very difficult to heal a wound.

To speed up the healing time, I have found it to be beneficial to remove the moisture from the ulcer. This can be hard to do because the mouth is aways a moist area.

Alum Powder is used for making pickles and pulls the water out of the cucumber. It does the same for a canker sore too. By adding alum powder to canker sores, you remove the moisture from the ulcer. When you remove the moisture, the ulcer has a chance to heal.

Alum Powder

So to naturally get rid of canker sores, you can use Alum Powder, a common spice found in most kitchens. Here is how!
Follow these steps to naturally get rid of canker sores:
  • Place a small amount of alum (about the size of a pea) directly onto the canker sore.
  • Allow it to sit on the canker sore for 60 seconds. It does not taste good, it is quite bitter. Do not swallow the alum!
  • After 60 seconds spit out your saliva and the alum. DO NOT RINSE YOUR MOUTH WITH WATER! Within several minutes to 24 hours, the pain will disappear.
The ulcer may stay for a day or two after you treat the canker sore, but the pain will be gone. If the pain is not gone after 24 hours, reapply the alum with a second application and repeat the steps above.

That’s it! So easy and effective. Next time you have a canker sore be sure to try this method out!

Why You Need to Lay Down With Banana Peel on Your Forehead

The experts from Mayo Clinic explain that headaches can occur in both sides of the head radiate across the head from one point, be isolated to a certain location etc. In some cases, headaches appear suddenly, while in others, they tend to develop gradually and the worst part is that they can last for an hour, two or for several days even.

Unfortunately, many people experience a severe headache otherwise known as a migraine, which is a throbbing painful headache affecting one side of the head. In most of the cases, it is triggered by hormones, stress, environment and many other factors.


One reader sent in a miraculous cure for migraines and headaches. All people should do in order to get relief from a headache is to peel a banana and then tape half of the banana peel on their forehead with adhesive and the rest of the peel to the back of the head. According to the reader, the headache disappears just after 20 minutes.

The reader explains that this column saved her life because the exact day she read this column, she had a killer migraine, and luckily, she also had a banana in the fridge. After she did as suggested, her migraine was gone after just half an hour.

I phoned my husband, a chemistry teacher, and told him about my miraculous cure. He said, “That was no miracle. You apparently had a potassium deficiency in your system, and the banana filled it.”

“When I read the column, I couldn’t run fast enough to get a banana to find out how well the peel would conduct an electrical signal. Just as I thought, banana peels are excellent conductors.

According to Darrell J. Stoddard, this method with banana peel actually heals the root cause of many headaches because it reconnects the broken circuits that you can prove for yourself are the cause of pain. the next time you have a headache, consider this method instead of just masking the pain with conventional medications that cause side-effects.

Warning: If the headaches are followed by temperature, weakness, stiff neck or change in sensation on one side of the body, vomiting, change in behavior and in vision, the person should definitely seek medical care immediately.

Low Energy? Look At Your Fingernail Moons

I raised a bit of a ruckus last week at a women’s business network meeting when I asked a panel of health experts if having no fingernail moons meant you were low in iodine, and hence, more likely to develop early breast cancer. No one really knew the answer to my admittedly obscure question, but everyone became interested in looking at their fingernails and comparing them to their neighbors. Because people found this topic so fascinating, I decided to hunt down the answer. I have since updated this post and created a new post about self-medicating with iodine – bad idea!

What do moons on your fingernails mean?

Moons on your fingernails are located at the base of your fingernails, closest to your fingers. They are the lighter half moon shaped growth under your nails. In palmistry, overly large moons can mean an overactive thyroid and high blood pressure. Small or no moons are thought to predict an underactive thyroid and low blood pressure. Scientists have found that a lack of a fingernail moon may indicate you are low in Vitamin B-12 or in iodine which feeds the thyroid. Vitamin B-12 deficiency has been linked with a lack of energy, depression, and loss of coordination and memory, among other things. Iodine deficiency has been linked to breast cancer. One palmistry specialist determined there is a link between small moons and carbon monoxide exposure.

An article on Fingernail Analysis in Natural Health Techniques tells us what to look for regarding your moons. “There should be 8 of these. The lunulae on the little fingers should be missing according to Eastern Medicine Philosophy. The one on the thumbnail should be 25% or less than the total length of the nail from base to flesh line at the top”.

What You Can Do:

Small or No Moons: There is very little research on this topic; however, one study has shown that missing moons are associated with various systemic disorders including issues with your thyroid or pituitary gland, iron deficiency, chronic renal failure, depression, and possible B-12 deficiency. Have your iodine and Vitamin B-12 levels checked? Have your thyroid function and blood pressure checked? Vitamin B-12 Deficiency Can Be Sneaky, Harmful by Harvard Health details the symptoms and risks of B-12 deficiency which is somewhat rare but debilitating. Reduce your carbon monoxide exposure by staying more than 20 feet from the car in front of you, not idling your vehicle, and when in traffic using the “internal air circulation” setting on your heater, vent and air conditioner.

(A side note on B-12 deficiency: I’m updating this post to include a note on MTHFR genetic testing. One of our commenters pointed out that she had that test and discovered that due to the MTHFR gene mutation she could only absorb vitamin B-12 and folic acid in its methylated form. I had the same test done recently and discovered the same thing. If you plan to have children, its crucial to get tested for this because if your body isn’t absorbing folic acid that can be very detrimental to your fetus’ development and can lead to chronic miscarriage).

Large Moons: have your blood pressure and thyroid checked. It’s a little more difficult to tell if your moons are overly large, so if your blood pressure and thyroid have been normal, there is no need to panic.

One of my excellent readers commented that she hoped for a post of what “normal” lunulae look like. Everyone is different so it’s hard to pinpoint normal, but I’m posting a couple of pictures thanks to Laws Dystopia Blog who wrote about a study linking the lack of fingernail moons with depression

How To Get Rid Of A Stye

Painful and scary looking, style looks like a red pimple-like very small lump on the eyelid or on its edge and it’s not that hard to get rid of overnight.

They appear if the eyelash follicle of the eyelid is infected or its oil gland and can be often painful, however, the swelling tends to go away on its own in a few weeks or so. Styes are usually harmless, even though they can cause some pain and irritation. Yet, one can take measures to ease the pain and diminish the swelling, but most importantly to prevent them from recurring again and get rid of the style completely.

In order to get rid of stye, first, they need to be thoroughly cleansed. In general, they are caused by chance, while occasionally it is the exposure of the eyelid to unnatural substances, like dust or makeup but they can also occur on its own, as it is a minute bacterial infection. Before cleaning the stye and the area around it, wash your hands carefully, and apply antibacterial cream for treating styes by using a cotton ball. If you so desire, you can also use a special eyelid scrub or tear-free “baby” shampoo. In these creams, there is a local painkiller which also provides temporary relief from the distress caused by a stye. But, if the cream gets into your eye somehow, the anesthetic is very irritable to the eyeball and causes significant damage – therefore apply it with extreme caution.

This spice is well known for its powerful medicinal properties a long time ago. It has contained antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties that help fight infections and inflammation in the body. It also reduces blood sugar levels in the body to keep you feeling full longer, aiding in the weight loss process. There are two types of cinnamon: Cassia and Ceylon. Ceylon is known as “true cinnamon,” and it is more beneficial to stick to Ceylon!

Coconut Oil

Although coconut oil is a fat, it actually is healthy fat! While most fats contain long -chain fatty acids, coconut oil consists almost entirely of medium – chain fatty acids which metabolize differently. They are sent straight to the liver from the digestive tract, where they are either used for energy right away or turned into ketone bodies, instead of being stored in the body as fat. In addition, the coconut oil is natural thermogenic, so it increases both metabolism and energy expenditure, resulting in more efficient fat burning!


It is fact that honey contains sugar. Usually, in order to digest sugar, the body uses stored vitamins and minerals that are essential to dissolving fats, reducing the amount of vitamins and minerals in the body. But honey actually contains nutrients, including iron, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and calcium, so the digestion process is balanced between the sugar and nutrients.

This gift from nature is a great source of vitamins, including folate, niacin, riboflavin, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6. There is research that has proven that honey is able to increase levels of good cholesterol in the body, reducing stress on the heart and allowing people to lead a more active and healthy life to further promote weight loss. You’ll want to use raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized organic honey for the best results.
