If you notice a dry stain on a white garment and you’re on your way out the door in a rush, grab the baby powder or cornstarch and put a large puff on the spot.

Rub lightly with your finger to blend and it will instantly camouflage the stain, till it gets wet.

Tips on Triggers: Humidity Can Trigger Joint Pain. 

TipsfromTia.com Joint pain

You don’t need to know the complete science behind why humidity triggers joint pain, for those that have these issues just know how painful it can be, and wish it would stop. Some people take medication to help with joint pain and it still can be, not enough to relieve all the discomfort. Well you can’t stop the rain, but you can try to comfort your joints.

When the joints start to twinge, try a hot shower; letting hot water hit the muscles and joints can relax the area. The water from the shower is introducing a instant precipitation to your body instead of the pressure of humidity building in the air around you. This can bring much relief.

If you are still experiencing the pain, or unable to shower, try a heated compress on the joint. And for extra support and warmth around the joint, try a bandage wrap around the area for the day. Keep a bandage wrap in the car or at work in case it happens unexpectedly. Keeping the joint and muscles warm, can help in keeping the area relaxed.

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Wearing High Heels Are Bad for You.
tipsfromtia.com heels

The only reason this is a stupid tip is, they aren’t bad for you to wear in moderation. Wearing heels: meaning, a couple times a week can be beneficial to your calf’s and butt as well as holding up your posture while sitting.

Yet, wearing heels on a daily basis; could give you poor standing posture, hurt your feet (nerves and bones), effect your back and put unnecessary pressure on your knees.

Wearing heels for only a special occasion, can be trying on people, because those muscles feel like it’s the first day at the gym and nobody’s body really appreciates the first day at the gym.

Investing in a good pair of heels can be a great way to go, since they are made usually, with more support and comfort.

Lighten Up Yellow Finger Nails. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Lighten Up Yellow Finger Nails.
TipsfromTia.com Don't Forget

Finger nails can yellow for several reasons including things like, fungus, smoking, dying hair, painting and most commonly wearing nail polish constantly, due to lack of oxygen on the nail.

A tip to lighten that yellowing is getting gauze pads and soaking them in peroxide. Then take the gauze and wrap 1 pad around each finger and leaving them on for about 15-20 minutes. This is good for the nail because of its antibacterial properties and bleaching abilities.

This will give a bleaching effect to the nail that will continue well after removing the gauze, which is more noticeable the next day. The nails can be painted over after the treatment, the treatment just provides health benefits to the nail and nail bed.

If you have major yellowing of the nails, talk to your doctor about nail fungi, and medical support for it.

How to paint a wall red, if the paint won’t cover properly.

By Tia Cristy

Problem:

I wanted to paint my living room a deep red. I knew it would take a couple coats, but I’m up to about 10 coats and it still looks terrible! I’m at a loss should I cover it with a different color or hire a professional? Tara

TipsfromTia.comRear view of a young woman holding a paint roller

Tip from Tia:

I love red, obviously. Red is by far, the hardest color to work with. It is actually a thinner paint than other colors, that is why it is so hard to get a decent coverage. I assume you didn’t use a primer? Either way, that’s alright. It is best if you choose to paint with a red or orange base color for better coverage, and be sure to use a grey primer before you start.

Now, in this case you are already 10 coats in, you can change the texture of your painting technique to give you a classy suede look. It’s quite simple and will now save you time, frustration and money. The suede technique is with a paint brush the width of your choice, and
you sweep the paint on in a constant “x” formation across the whole wall you’ve already painted. Yes it is the same color, but the red paint, as you have already witnessed, dries darker in thicker areas. Doing this technique will give a balance to the dark spots and a nice highlight to the thinner spots.

Other techniques can be used as well if you’re not a fan of the suede look. There is sponge, which is using a choppy sponge blotted across the wall. There is the rag painting which is messy, but really all painting can be messy. This technique is a twisted rag that you roll across the wall.

There are many techniques that home improvement stores have to offer as well. So check with them before calling in the professional. All of these painting techniques can help blend that problematic red and give a super custom look to your room.

A quick side note to remember, if you want to cover up that red now or in the future. Colors have a science behind them. Pigments are important in covering over another color. The best pigment to paint over red and orange is a neutral taupe color. It will give you the best coverage and overlay so pink tones don’t come cascading thru. And remember to be realistic, if you have a huge room or vaulted ceilings; the professional may just be the right way to go, since they have the right ladders scaffolding and tools for the job. Professional painters come in and get the job done right and quick and leave you with less
of a headache.

Quickie: Soften Crow’s Feet and Laugh Lines.
TipsfromTia.com Woman Laughing

 

It’s truly, the wrinkles you should be proud of. To have laugh lines and crow’s feet, usually means just that, you’ve done plenty of laughing. As said earlier this week it’s important for your brain to get plenty of laughs. But, your face may want a softening of these lines though.

A quick easy tip to soften fine lines is to apply Vitamin E to these lines at night before you go to bed. Break open a Vitamin E capsule with a toothpick and apply generously to the lines using the whole contents of the capsule.

Doing this every night should soften the appearance and restore the under layers of the skin with hydration. (SIDE NOTE: The younger you start using Vitamin E, the more beneficial to your skin in keeping elasticity.)

Is Auto Correct is Dumbing Us Down?

Is Auto Correct is Dumbing Us Down?

Problem: I have been having problems with my assignments in class. It’s like I forget my elementary  basics when it comes to writing. You might laugh but, I blame it on my texting making me dumb.

 

Tip from Tia: The things we didn’t have to worry about, only a short decade ago.  Is Auto Correct is Dumbing Us Down? (see what I did there, ha!)

The truth is, auto correct is dumbing us down. Writing is a skill we learned. And just like any skill, if you don’t use it; you lose it. Sadly, it has become easier and acceptable to have auto correct on our reliable devices. It saves us time and people have gotten good at deciphering what we mean to say.

It’s been an age old question. Who is the better writer women or men?

Whether it be a man or woman writing, write with skill and intent. Both men and women have strong points in writing.

Some interesting findings from the infographic at Grammarly showed

  •        Women are almost twice as likely than men to spend time on character development.
  •        Men are more likely to write short and straightforward sentences.

Just like any skill, you must remember to practice. And, when it comes to class assignments and the workforce, proper grammar and spelling is thought to reflect your intelligence. I found It’s acceptable and helpful to use resources like spell check and sites like Grammarly.

The brain is a muscle. Remember to exercise it!

All Lube is the Same. Stupid Tip of the Day: (MA)

Stupid Tip of the Day: All Lube is the Same. (MA)
Tipsfromtia.com olive oil condiment vegeterian food

You may think all lubricants and oils to enhance a sexual experience, are built the same, but that is not the case. You’ve seen the commercials for her pleasure and for his, and a chemical reaction happens when they combine. Lubricants can be very effective in giving a hypersensitive experience, in the bedroom. In some cases, a lube is even necessary to achieve a pleasurable experience.

There is no shame in needing or wanting a lubricant with your partner. Just be sure to discuss with each other the options. It’s important to have good communication with sex and important to have sexual health. Lubricants can break down latex, if you are having protected sex using condoms. Another form of protection must be discussed, before adding in a lube.

When deciding which lubricant to purchase, I recommend doing just what you would do if you were buying a new food; Check the label. The more natural the product is, the better reaction you will probably have with it. Some lubes actually contain silicone or other strange chemicals that may not treat your insides well. People try to come up with many alternatives and end up causing much harm to your body and your partners body.

When in doubt, go to the kitchen and get olive oil. It’s the most natural lubricant.
