So I have really bad acne on my nose. Nowhere else, just my nose. So for years, I would buy those pore cleaning nose strips from the store, spending up to 10 dollars for just eight strips. Since I’m only 15 and I don’t have a job, I needed to find another way to clear my nose without spending so much money. The secret? Glue! Yes, non-toxic school glue.

I use a Q-Tip to spread a thin layer of the glue onto my nose, let it dry, and peel it off. This sounds really gross, I know, but it works just as well as the nose strips. Personally, I think it works a little better, because the glue can get closer to your pores than the paper strip can.

From my experience, I can say that this is totally safe. Just make sure you use non-toxic glue, and that you take all of it off.

So there you have it! No more spending loads of moolah on paper nose strips, just spend 3 dollars on a bottle of glue that’ll last you months.

Happy Sunday!

Sew Cool :]

Let me start with this: I don’t like those new skirts that have the visible black elastic band. Personally, I think it looks totally sloppy and not put-together. With that being said, I am now totally into making my own skirts, since I find it hard to find pretty and full skirts without an elastic band. With the help of my mom, of course, AND my DIY dress form,  I have started to make my own skirts.  The best part is that it costs about a third of what other skirts cost! I just go into Joann’s and BOOM! there’s tons of fabric. It makes me wonder why more girls don’t do it, you know?  You won’t have to see some other girl walking around at school with the same skirt as you, and you have the ability to say, ” Thanks! I made it.” Believe me, VERY FEW teen girls these days have ever even walked into Joann’s willingly, much less touched a sewing machine. So go ahead and try it out! There are loads of different patterns and fabrics you can choose from. All you have to do is set your mind to it. :]

Did you read my DIY dress form post?
