Michelle Phan and Homemade Pore Strips

Here is a little something I wanted to share with everyone! Michelle Phan, a professional make-up artist known for her clever YouTube videos, posted a video on how to make homemade pore strips. It's pretty awesome and inexpensive, therefore I wanted to share it.


- Milk (any kind)
- Jello powder


*PS - The video is a little large for my page. I couldn't figure out how to shrink it, sorry!

Motion Sickness Remedies for Less

Instead of paying $5 - $10 for motion sickness medicine, make your own. This motion sickness remedy is all natural; you can refill the bottle at any time. All you have to do is apply a small amount of oil to your wrists and sniff, or smell the oil within the bottle.

The secret ingredients are:

Grape seed oil

My mother was the genius behind the concoction, and I promise it works! This oil has helped me endure car rides lasting up to four hours, and it's something anyone can make at home.

Additional Car Sickness Remedies:

Chew on a piece of peppermint gum
Ask to be the driver, or to sit in the front seat
Wear sunglasses
Drink water often
Another beverage that helps car sickness is coke (in moderation)
Try to cheat the sickness by falling asleep

*TIP: Keep a basil plant. It smells great, makes any porch area come alive, and can be used for cooking and herbal remedies.
