As of lately, I’ve acquired a lot more keys then I used to have before. I have a work key, bedroom key, car key, house key (for two houses, mine and my parents), and some keys on my chain that i’m afraid to take off because I think they might be to something significant… and they’re all starting to look the same.
When I get home at night, I always end up fumbling with my keys for a good 3-5 minutes, testing all the different ones to see which one fits into the key hole (they’re all just plain silver keysD:), and it’s becoming a bit of a hassle. This is just a quick tip to help you if you have a similar issue with differentiating between keys like me! (Btw, I learned this from Pinterest I think, once i find the original source I will be sure to link it.)
What To Do:
1. Choose a variety of your favorite nail polishes (in my case, I chose a solid color and a glitter polish to go over it), you’ll also need a top coat.
2. Lay your keys over a piece of paper, lay them flat and paint them with your polish. Mine took about two coats of the solid color and one of the glitter.
3. Paint on the top coat, make sure to seal the edges, and inside the cut outs of the keys. Allow it to dry, for at least 45 minutes (just in case)
4. Flip it over and repeat steps one and two.
5. Allow it to dry, and voila! All finished n_n
I recently bought a pair of cute glitter flats from Pac Sun for about 2$ (They were on sale, and then on sale AGAIN!), I thought they’d be a nice way to add something extra to a casual neutral outfit. They actually fit perfectly, but the back is a bit stiff and uncomfortable. I probably could have gone half a size up, but at this point it’s too late to return or exchange them! I did some research and found a way to stretch out your shoes a bit and thought I’d share it with you!
What You Need:
-Your Shoes (In my case, these sparkly flats)
-Two small sandwich ziploc bags
-A plastic shopping bag
What To Do:
1. You’re going to want to fill the ziploc bags about 1/2 - 2/3 of the way full
2. Slip them into your shoes (you can even do these to heels if you’d like!)
3. Put the shoes flat inside the plastic shopping bag before placing them in the freezer. You want to keep them isolated from everything else in your freezer, you want to keep this as sanitary as possible…
4. Tie up the ends of the bag and put them in the freezer.
5. In a couple of hours come back and remove the ice bags, you can dispose of them, and slip on your shoes! They should be stretched a bit and be a lot more comfortable.
—I find that this method keeps my shoes pretty stretched, but if your shoes go back to their original size feel free to repeat this process every once and a while. It doesn’t take much and it’s worth it!
