Foundations too white or coloured can make a pale or porcelain complexion seem overly white and washed out. Lipstick too vivid or eyes too dark can give the same impression through excessive contrast. It’s a delicate balancing act, and it all comes down to picking the right starting colours.
My new lens, Wedding Makeup Tips for Pale Skin, offers a simple and helpful starting guide to those looking for inspiration.
Over the door ironing board clothes on a traditional board is very far from easy. That’s because those boards were designed with… well, God knows what they had in mind when they designed them! You end up moving your wrinkly duds in all directions just to lay one part or the other flat. It’s stupid. But the Ironing Station you see above isn’t. It features a central circular board, and two pivoting arms. That way you can simply insert the sleeves or the pant legs into the arms, and find a flat surface. Close the arms again, and you can iron the back of that shirt. Finally, clamp the collar between the arms and it lays flat, ready to iron.
Us describing it out here really doesn’t do the Iron Station justice. Do yourself a favor and watch the clip after the jump. And check out the other pictures. Out here we’ll mention three more things. One, it has a tripod base, which is pretty cool for added stability. Two, if Quirky ends up making it, it’ll cost around $22. And three, the video has been around for over a year, so we’re not sure what’s up. On the site, it says they’re “making it”, but we can’t quite figure out how to buy it.
As a quilter, I iron A LOT. I had an ironing board, but it rocked back and forth whenever I used it. When I told my Mom I wanted to buy a new one, she insisted that I take the extra one that was collecting dust at her house. I reluctantly accepted, because although it was indeed sturdy, it was old…and ugly.
When I got my “new” old ironing board home, I decided it needed a makeover. Judging by the interesting shade of gold, I think it was probably older than I am. The cover was stained too, so if I was going to paint the ironing board I figured I would take a stab at a new cover as well. Not being thrilled with the ones sold in the local store, I decided to get my craft on and look online. I knew I could find something good on Pinterest!
Personally I have a lot of interesting hobbies among which sports is the most significant category. There is nothing better than watching and also doing them on your own. I like to play basketball, football and even racing is on my to do list. When we talk about watching and cheering I prefer almost every sport. Football, basketball, tennis, Formula 1, Moto GP, Skiing, Ski Jumping, Biathlon are just some sports that I really like.
I also like nature and therefore hiking and running outdoors are two things that I do almost every day. From May to November I also prefer mushroom gathering. With that hobby there is always fun and I’m able to spend some quality time with my family and friends.
At this time I have two pets. Dog Maxi and cat Lilly. Those two adorable little pets are always fun. Despite all that, there is also music among which I strangely prefer the most epic action instrumental music. In cooking, tangerine pancakes are my speciality.
