Ways to Use Chopsticks #89

Don't you hate having products go to waste? The end of that lipgloss, the last of your lotion...

Well, here's a fancy way to use your chopsticks.  Dig into your containers! Especially good when the original dispensing tube doesn't reach the bottom.

So instead of throwing away the lone chopstick that's lost its partner or a slightly bent one (like mine: a victim of the dishwasher heat), reuse it!

Review: Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara

image via

I really, REALLY wanted to like the Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara. I loved the packaging and its squeezable tube. It gives me the similar satisfaction of getting every last bit of toothpaste out. The product got great reviews on Sephora (4.2 out of 5). I even tried it on at Sephora, approved of the dramatic difference I saw, and bought it on the spot! So why am I no longer a fan?

FREE workspace through Loosecubes!

Do you ever need a comfortable work space or even just a desk when you're away from your home or office? This may especially apply to freelancers and students who usually park their butts at a local cafe only to feel the pressure to buy more coffee to stay there or have to deal with crying babies, bums, or crazy people.  But it can also be a fantastic option for those who have the freedom to work away from their office and gain productivity from being in a different environment!

Well, now you have the option of Loosecubes!  It's an online "booking" site for work space offered by various companies around the world. And many of the spaces are available at no charge!  That's because, according to the site, these businesses benefit from "meeting relevant professionals on an ongoing basis".  You also provide reviews for the space which may eventually be rented out for a fee in the future.

No Filter

I still don't know what that means..."no filter".  I see it on Instagram photos and hashtagged on pics on Twitter.  I'm assuming it means you used nothing to enhance your picture...that you didn't select any of the options that magically transformed your ugly duckling of a crap photo into a beautiful swan.

Well, that's how I feel like writing..with "no filter". I've spent a good number of hours editing and re-editing articles in search of typos and anything that ruined "the flow" of it.  So now, I just want to barf out everything in my brain without hesitation to correct or find the perfect word that explains how I feel. That's right. I want to barf out words. No breaks between gags and no time out to wipe my mouth. What an image I've painted.

What You Can Do With Old Clothes

Do you ever feel like this?

 I know I do. Sure, I have pages and pages of DIY ideas to bedazzle my old jeans and turn my old button down into a cute vest.  But HONESTLY, is that all going to happen? Not in my world. So what can we do when we need to get rid of our old clothes?
