There are a few things I do in warmer weather that I don’t do in the winter, so I thought I would do you lovely readers a little list of the Lean Summertime Rules.
Rule 1 – Lengthen the life of your lipsticks and nail polishes by keeping them in the refrigerator. I remember this tip when I got out a lipstick that I bought Duty Free and had gone rancid in the warm cupboard. I also keep perfume and foundation in the fridge too.
Rule 2 – Don’t buy expensive sunglasses if you have a tendency to lose them or let your kids play with and possibly break them. If you take care of your designer frames then indugle yourself. I must admitt I have been wearing the same pair of Persols for over 12 years and just bought a new different shape a year ago.
Rule 3 – Keep the sunshine out – what I mean by this is when in a heat wave, close your blinds, pull your curtains and close your shades so your home will not heat up in the afternoon sun.
Rule 4 – Unplug it on holiday – when you go away, unplug all your non-essential appliances that use electricity. I unplug my TV, cable box, wifi, clock radio, you get the idea. The rule is unplug anything with a transformer that heats up.
Rule 5 – The most basic rule is to always carry a bottle of water so you are not the person that faints on the tube.
