Send Your Kids To School With A Message.

“Bread With Strawberry Jam” by Rawich FreeDigitalPhotos.net

School is back in session for some, as of today. Some kids go back next week or earlier this year. Either way,  mom’s and dad’s want their kids to know they’re thinking of them during the day, but don’t want to take a chance they may embarrass their children, in front of their peers.

So, what are some great ways to leave a personal message, without the hazard of them being ridiculed by others. Older kids that have established their self-esteem, may not be flustered by their friends bantering them, because you left a sweet note in their lunch bag. But, if your kid is just starting out with the social haven of school, why not try some alternative ways, that only you and your kids know.

Write a message with mustard on their sandwich. Put the message on the bread and press it against the other piece to seal the message. Then, pull the pieces apart and stack the ingredients atop of your message. At lunch, they can peek in between, to see what you said.

If your kids don’t like mustard, that’s okay. Make up messages for cookies. Like, Chocolate chip means, hugs. Going healthy instead, apple slices could mean kisses. Why not so both, so when they open up their lunch and see chocolate chip cookies and apple slices, they know your sending hugs and kisses.

Get creative and also include your child in making the messages. It’s a great time to spend together. And then, when they’re at school, they’ll know that you are thinking of them.

Upset Stomach Quickie

Quickies: Upset Stomach.

“Woman With Abdominal Pain” by Ohmega1982 FreeDigitalPhotos.net


When your stomach is hurting, it could be accompanied with heart burn, and other painful ailments.

A quick tip to settle the tummy quickly is a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. It has quick response time to calm the stomach.

And, if you still feel a dull pain after an hour, take one more tablespoon. ( you don’t want to take too much at once, because it will have the opposite reaction) Drink water after taking the vinegar. I personally, think the taste is the worst, only the very first time you take it, after you’ve done it once, the taste can be bearable. And the benefits out way the taste.

Can’t Keep your Eye’s Open? Tips on Triggers:

Tips on Triggers: Can’t Keep your Eye’s Open?
tipsfromtia.com (10)

The day is long and you didn’t get enough sleep, but you need to get through just a little longer. Your eyes are starting to close and you can’t control it.

Here’s a sensitive trigger point that can help you get a jolt to the eyes quickly. At the base of your head where it meets the neck is your occipital. Slightly rub on both sides with a light massage. This will give your eyes a burst of energy.  Don’t rub too hard. Too much pressure can cause damage, so be gentle to your sight.

It doesn’t always last long, so make sure you’re not operating heavy machinery, including driving, relying on this trigger point to get you to your finish line, but it will give you an ability to make it through that file or that end of the day board meeting.

Stupid Tip Of The Day; cooking oil to a hot frying pan

tipsfromtia.comtipsfromtia.comTipsfromTia.com oil

Don’t do it! If you don’t know what happens, ask a fireman! It can burst out of control in a blink of an eye.

 If cooking, and you need to add oil, remove pan from heat, allow it to cool for a couple minutes, and then you can add extra cooking oil, while still using caution.

Allergies Making Sunburn Worse.

By Tia Cristy

Allergies Making Sunburn Worse.
TipsfromTia.com Man ready for fun at sunny tropical beach

Problem: I put on sunburn relief gel and it made my burn worse. My mom said I could be allergic to something in it.

Tip from Tia:

Absolutely! Anytime you put a chemical on your body and it starts to burn, sting or itch intensively, get it off right away. That is a sure sign your body doesn’t like it. Sometimes water doesn’t help in stopping the reaction, so have milk and vinegar close by, to neutralize it if necessary. And, be sure to try the milk first, if water makes it feel worse initially. Then, use the vinegar if the milk still hasn’t helped.

With sunburn relief gels, camphor could be the source of the allergy, but you may need to do a trial and error to find the exact source. Good news though, there are products out there without that in it, that work just as well.

I still stick with rubbing alcohol on sunburn. For bad burns, apply cornstarch once the alcohol dries, for burning relief. Take some over the counter pain relievers, if necessary. And, be sure to call your doctor immediately if you have and swelling, blisters or intense pain. Sun poisoning is a serious condition and can stop summer fun, to a screeching halt.

Removing hair dye stains from skin: controversial

Quickies: Removing hair dye stains from skin: controversial.

This tip is controversial for some people. This is not to condone or disapprove smoking. This is a tip that I have tried and it worked. And, all I state is…tipsfromtia.com stop smoking

There is a benefit of knowing a smoker, ashes. If you don’t have accessibility to a full ash tray, you can try incense ashes. I would imagine they could work just as well.

Ashes can remove hair dye stains from your hairline. Add a little water to ashes to make a paste and rub it in a circular motion where your skin has been stained. Wash off and the dye stain will start to disappear on its own.

If you’ve had a headache or a back pain that you just can shake, try applying a slight pressure between the base of the neck and shoulder. If you feel the shock run straight to your consistent pain, then that’s center of your discomfort.

Gradually massage and add ice for 20 minutes on 20 minutes off. The next day you can apply heat with same 20 minute rule. Apply a menthol gel if you need deep relief.

Stupid Tip of the Day:An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away.
TipsfromTia.com Apples

Apples are great for most, but what many people don’t know is, there is a group of people out there allergic to apples.

If your mouth itches after eating an apple there is a chance you could have a slight to full blown apple allergy.

Contact your doctor if you become itchy or swell. Hands and feet tend to itch first during an allergic reaction.

And remember if you have allergies, let your partner know so they can stay clear of the things that set your allergies off. And, know theirs as well.

Tips In Action: Look your Best on Photo Day

Tips In Action: Look your Best on Photo Day
tipsfromTia.com makeup tips

Photo Day at work or school can be a bit unnerving. From making sure your hair is perfect, your skin is clear and let alone the right color outfit; you just want to make sure all your best features are highlighted.

Eyes, cheeks or lips are easy to make outstanding in you picture. But if you need definition in certain areas don’t be afraid to grab your shadow brush and dark eyeshadow to define those tricky areas. For example, under the jawline is a great place to enhance for photos. You can also strengthen your cheeks under the apples or the definition of your nose.

You don’t have to be a professional to do this, but I do recommend practicing a few times before photo day so you see what complements you best. Take your own photo to make sure it works.

Add more shadow if needed or wipe away the heaviness. Once you’ve got the feel for it, you’re ready to say “cheese”. After the photo day shot, no need to wash your augmentation off, just blend in with a tissue or hand. Toning it down will give a natural everyday wear appearance.
