1. It’s not a good idea to put your foot cream on the same shelf as your toothpaste.
You’d think this would be one of those self-preservation things most people would already know, like “Don’t touch a hot stove!” or “Do sniff the communal office carton of milk before you pour some in your coffee,” but noooooo. A few nights ago, as I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth before bed, I thought, “Hmm… This toothpaste tastes kinda funny…and why isn’t it foaming up?”

2. If you put your robe on backwards, you can turn it into a slanket.
And by “backwards,” I don’t mean inside out.
OK, how the heck do I explain this…? More accurately, how do I explain how I figured it out? HA HA HA!

Don’t ask me why this seems warmer to me than wearing a robe the usual way. Maybe it’s because more material is covering the legs…? I don’t know, but I definitely haven’t been as cold as I usually am since I started doing it. To wit, I’m doing it right now.
PRO TIP: Cut off the tag on your robe to avoid itchiness!
3. The revamped MAC synthetic brushes are not built to last.
Earlier this year, MAC revamped their entire brush line, replacing the natural fibers with synthetic bristles, and you know what? Homegirl is NOT impressed. I’ve been using the new 224S since last May (the “S” stands for synthetic, I believe), and look…
