Quick! I have a wrinkle!

The other day I found myself confronting a huge wrinkle down the middle of a silk shirt I was wearing. Standing in front of the mirror, I tried to convince myself that it wasn’t that bad, that no one would notice but I didn’t feel right and the wrinkle continued to mock me. I tossed up my options, which would be easier? Putting together a different outfit or dragging out the ironing board and waiting for the iron to warm up? Then I recalled this travel tip from one of my favourite YouTube channels, Sonia’s Travels.

Feeling confident, I headed to the bathroom and in under a minute the wrinkle was gone.

My poor little travel hair dryer has stayed at home since this tip convinced me that having full power while travelling does matter. To be fair though, I didn’t need that much convincing, my hair and travel hair dryer haven’t ever been a match made in heaven.

The art of more effectively tying a shoe lace

shoe lacesIf you have experienced the annoyance of shoe laces (of all varieties but especially leather!) CONSTANTLY coming undone then you will love this tip.

A friend of mine shared this video with me and the information it offers is worth its weight in gold. By simply changing the direction that you loop your shoe lace, you can save yourself time and the energy that is involved in having to duck down to retie your shoe throughout the day.

If you think about it, changing such a seemingly simple every day act could possibly alter the course of your entire life. I’m thinking something along the lines of Sliding Doors or Stranger than Fiction
