Apply Perfume Like a Boss

Apply perfume on your wrists, then dab a bit behind your ears and you’re good to go, right? Not so fast, missy. If you’re going to drop your hard-earned cash on your “signature scent” you want it to last–and to make a good impression. Try rubbing it through your hair, down […]

Snag the Bill (Before It Gets to the Table)

Snag the bill on your first date or a special occasion. Here’s how to do this elegantly: do it on the sly. Slip away from the table during dessert by pretending you have to take a call–or that nature is calling. The idea is to do this before the bill […]

DIY Nail Art with a Band-Aid

DIY nail art can be simple, fun and oh-so chic–all you need are a couple of Band-Aids. First, paint your nails with a base color. You can add a clear top-coat over the base, or over your “art” or, for a super long-lasting manicure, over both. Place the end of […]

Perfect Mascara Using a Business Card

Perfect mascara can be yours, at last. You want to coat all your lashes, from the base all the way up–but it can get messy. Try this: hold a business card at the base of your lashes. The card will absorb the extra mascara that would otherwise end up all […]

Remove Water Stains with a Hair Dryer

Remove water stains from your coffee tables, dining room table or even your piano bench (!) with the concentrated heat of your hair dryer. My friend used a Dyson supersonic hair dryer but honestly, any hair dryer will do. Cool glasses of water or hot cops of tea–along with those […]
