Pinterest Week 1

February 13, 2012

Okay, so I am a Pinterest addict at this point. Rather than spend hours at a time wasting the day away scanning Pinterest ideas, I have decided to use it as a tool and to report my findings. I hope to do this weekly but no promises.

Such a great idea for healthy weekday breakfasts!

Steal cut oats on the go: I just cooked them up and I’ll report to you after I eat them.

Homemade Biore strips for the entire face; only 2 ingredients.

Homemade Biore Pore Strips: I used gelatin and half and half (it was the only dairy product in the house). It worked great the first time. The second time it congealed too fast. I would follow the directions closely and let it dry thoroughly. Wonderful trick!

How fun!     1. Put on nail polish and let dry.  2. Dip fingernail in alcohol-basically any will do, vodka is suggested.  3. Press a strip of newspaper big enough to cover the whole nail on to your alcohol soaked nail.  4.  Pull off slowly and be really impressed with yourself. 5. Paint top coat if desired.

Newspaper nails: Completely failed. I tried on a few different nails and finally gave up and continued on to marbleized nails.

This version has really good directions and one of the comments below his video.

Marbleized Nails: Also failed miserably but that may be my fault. Do NOT use plastic containers. Nail polish eats right through them. This is too messy for my tastes.
