5 Nifty Home Ideas That Will Save Money.

1) Keep soap from getting slimy and dissolving by placing it on a dish filled with pebbles.  The soap will get proper drainage and dry faster. Not to mention, it looks super cute. 



 2) Take advantage of  fun and fashionable candle holders.  After the candle is done burning,  use them for storage or as a vase! They’re sure to stand out in any room. 




                                            

3)Make plants last longer by spritzing them with lemon peel water! The oils in the peel repel insects without harming the plant.

 5)Use worn out wire hangers to organize casual shoe wear! Just bend them and decorate with a cute fabric!

TuTus, Nail Polish, and Skateboards... That’s What Little Girls Are Made OF.....


 When I was 8-years-young ;), I had a skateboard with an American flag on it. I absolutely loved it and played on it all the time. But, some days, my  “meanie face" boy cousin would take it and hide it from me and he would say,  “Girls can’t skate!”  I would cry and get so MAD.  Eventually, those tears turned into words of wisdom.   "Oh cousin, girls can do anything boys can do and IN HEELS!"  ;) 




It’s so sad that by the age of 14,  girls are twice as likely to drop out of sports as boys in fear of losing their femininity. Well, the “Pink Helmet Posse”  in their little tutus and pink nail polish are on a mission to prove you can still be a girl and love sports! You have to check out this adorableness!
