I loathe email forwards but every now and then I get a good one. The below tips are from one such email but I have no idea who to credit! Maybe the same Nigerian Prince that needs my money to free his fortune?

* Cut an apple then secure it with a rubber band in its original shape so it doesn't brown before lunch.

* Score x's in a box top for an easy cupcake carrier/holder

* Turn a muffin pan upside down to make cookie dough cups to hold fruit or ice cream.

* Hull strawberries using a plastic straw...easy & fast!

* Use egg cartons to hold delicate ornaments.

* Install a tension rod in your kitchen cabinet to hold spray bottles, giving you lots of room for other essentials.

* Bread tags make great tech cord labels.

* Rub a walnut over wood furniture to erase dings & scrapes.

* Store rolls of wrapping paper on the ceiling by installing wire from the wall to the door frame for easy organization.

* iPhones & iPads can be placed in bowls to amplify sounds without additional gear.

* Baby powder removes sand from feet in a snap. A travel sized bottle is the perfect addition to your beach bag.

* Use shower caps as covers for shoes to prevent dirty soles from touching clean clothes.

* Install magnetic strips inside bathroom cabinets to hold hair pins, tweezers, nail clippers, etc.

* Freeze aloe vera gel in an ice cube tray for individual sunburn relieving doses.

* Sheet sets are folded and slipped inside one of the matching pillowcases for easy storage and to keep the set together.

* Using a rubber band cover the nozzle of your vacuum cleaner with hosiery to sweep up lost treasures like earring backs, etc.

After quite a few years working with many talented hair stylists, makeup artists and estheticians I've come to understand the tools, not just the products, can be incredibly important elements of any beauty regime.  Today on INsight I showed Emilie and Charity some key items that can make your daily routine a bit the links below:

The makeup brush cleanser I showed is by Beauty So Clean and my favorite foundation sponge is called the Beauty Blender. 

The soft diffuser for the blow dryer is the Hot Sock and the super strong hair clips for sectioning are called Grip Clips.

Welp, it's Monday again and I'm setting some style goals for the week:

* locate, purchase and wear a particular pair of kick ass booties...stay tuned for some ferocious kicks!
* research and complete an article about sustainable style
* book a hair cut - trying to decide if I'll do a trim or something more exciting...
* enjoy a no polish pedi to get my toes ready for boot weather (I've stopped painting my piggies during the winter months)
* finally take down Halloween garb and skip right to Foxmas decor...I'm excited to put up my Cape Cod/Seaside themed tree but am also doing a pink feather tree for my office.
* potentially buy a netbook for easier blogging on the go...still debating this one
