A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody. Stupid Tip of the Day:

A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody

Ice Cream Popsicle Couples Nature

They say that a sweet treat never hurt anybody. In most cases that is true, especially when it comes to generally healthy individuals. However, if you’re craving sweets there might be more to it.

A Little Bit is Good for the Belly

It’s absolutely true that a little sweet treat can help with digestion. Chocolate is acidic, but something cool happens when eating a bit of chocolate after eating. It can churn those stomach acids in your favor and help with digestion. So, if you crave something sweet after eating, you might need natural help digesting your meal.

Sweetness for Your Soul

Sugar gets a pretty bad wrap, but sugar is good for your body’s insulin production, which helps the body store energy. Too much sugar can result in a sudden drop in blood sugar. However, a little sugary snack can have benefits in quick energy boosts.

Just be careful because the higher the sugar rise, the harder the fall.

When to Absolutely Avoid the Sweets

Obviously, avoid sugary things if you have a medical condition where sugar can hurt you. Diabetic comas are real and life-threatening, so be certain to follow your doctor’s orders when it comes to diabetes.

No Sugar When Your Body is Off Balance

Another time to avoid sugar is if you have a yeast infection. Eating sweets can hurt more than you think when your body’s balance is in turmoil. Yeast can affect women and men, internally and externally. It can also be transmitted back and forth through bodily functions. Hence the reason not to share undergarments. It’s best to avoid engaging in any sexual activity until the infection has passed.

Women will have more symptoms than men, so it’s best to know the signs.

Yeast feeds off sugar, and just like out of a scary story, if you feed them, they will grow. Yeast can affect everything in your body if it crosses the line and enters your bloodstream.

So, if you have a yeast infection, be sure not to give into that craving of sugar. By the way, that also includes fruits. Fruits have a high natural sugar content that can feed the yeast.

If you think you have a yeast infection, seek medical treatment and drink plenty of water, and save the desert for another time.

Easter Egg Dye Kit at the Store is Better. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

If the kids are begging for an Easter Egg dye kit from the store, but you don’t have the funds to splurge on that magic invisible crayon. You can just say, you got it covered already without feeling you’re depriving them.

Get colorful

The kits are fine, but they can be expensive if you don’t have extra cash. Food coloring will give you any color you want to make, just as good as what comes in the kit. Remember the primary colors; Red, blue and yellow. Red and blue make purple, blue and yellow make green and yellow and red make orange. Using food coloring allows you to make as many colors and as dark and vibrant as you like. Just don’t forget to add the vinegar to the hot bowl of water to make it stick to the eggs. And, if you have to buy food coloring, feel confident that you’ll have those colors for many Easter’s to come, if that’s all you are using them for.

Hold up

Those little cardboard rings that hold the egg while drying, are easy enough to recreate using foil. Fold the foil less than a half inch repeatedly until you have a firm long piece of foil. Cut several pieces where they can comfortably make a ring to hold the egg. Push the ends together to hold the ring shape and sturdy enough to hold the egg. (seen in above photo)

Decorate with stickers

Kids always seem to have stickers stashed somewhere, allow them to use their own stickers on the eggs to decorate, as if it’s a big treat.

Make your own magic

Now, that magic crayon; get a white candle stick break it into pieces giving a piece to each child to use before dying the egg. The wax will keep the dye from sticking.

If you want to make the memory more memorable for them, and you’re brave enough, you can allow the kids to help make the colors with you using the food coloring while teaching them how colors are made.

Abrasive Exfoliates Work Best. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Just because you feel all those rocky granules through your fingers and on your skin, doesn’t mean that aggressive exfoliant product is working better than others. Some abrasive cleansers can leave little scratches behind, which is not good for your face since, it is subjected to so much pollution on a daily basis. That dirt can get into those tiny scratches and cause havoc on your skin.

A finer cleanser is nice, if it’s removing dead skin cells without being too harsh, but many don’t feel it’s doing the trick unless they can feel the grain.

Going with a natural exfoliant is a great way to go to get the right grain that is safe for all skin types. Salt or sugar mixed with an oil like coconut oil, is a great natural exfoliate.

Exfoliating once a week is usually a good rule. It gives the skin time to heal its wounds and generate the new layers. Massaging skin daily, is a good way to keep the face healthy.

Be sure to moisturize your skin. However, be cautious, using some moisturizers can burn after exfoliating, which can cause extra irritation.
Applying a mixture of olive oil mixed with tea tree oil after a weekly cleansing, can be healthy in unclogging pores while moisturizing and treating the skin with anti-bacterial properties. Always do a test patch on your wrist before applying to your face when using something new.

At some point in time, everyone finds themselves in a little bit of trouble. Of course, the level and severity of the trouble you’re in will depend on what you do. Some people might get in trouble for not doing their work. But, that’s not the sort of trouble we’re trouble we’re talking about in this specific article. Instead, this post is about criminal trouble. If the police are ever knocking at your door or putting cuffs on your arms; this post will be there to help you. You just have to remember a couple of things to make sure that you’re covered.

What you do if you should happen get arrested is very important. A lot of people are rude to the police. Or, will try to escape them. Both of these attitudes are destructive and pointless. Once they’ve caught you; there’s not much you can do. So, it’s best to try and get on the good side of the police. In a lot of cases; when people decide to be difficult with police, they will find that they commit more crimes than they had originally. And, this will just get you into more trouble. It’s best to avoid talking too much at this stage. Just give them the details they need and don’t talk about the crime.

Your first priority, once you get to the station, should be talking to your lawyer. This will ensure that you don’t say anything that could harm you. And, to make you aware of the sort of trouble you’re in. It’s hard to make sure that you handle issues like this with poise and grace. A lawyer will be able to do this for you; limiting the chances that you’ll do the wrong thing. If you don’t have a lawyer, you should be at least aware of a good one. Look at websites like to get an idea of what’s available. You should always look for lawyers that specialize in the trouble that you’re in. Criminal defense lawyers won’t be good at contract law; but, a family lawyer won’t be very good with criminal law. So, you need to make the right choice.

Getting out of the crime you’ve committed will be unlikely. There’s almost always some sort of backlash from something like this. And, it’s hard to get rid of the backlash completely. So, you will need to be prepared to do some time or other punishment for what you have done. Choosing a good lawyer will limit this time as much as possible. And, will help you to retain your reputation after the fact. So, it’s essential that you do plenty of research. In some cases; you may be able to get out of the issue. But, this will be greatly dependent on the professional helping you.

Hopefully, this will give you a good idea of what needs to be done if you should ever happen to find yourself in a legal battle. It can be hard to focus on something like this in a sensible way. And, a lot of people are very emotional during these times. It’s important to remain calm, though. Never get too excited.

For anyone thinking about buying stainless steel appliances, the truth is, they can look messy just like any other. Stainless has the ability to show finger prints as well.

Some new technologies offer smudge proof, which maybe worth the extra dollars. But, remember this tip for any of your stainless steel.

Most of the time cleaning with vinegar is very effective. Remember to always rub with the grain. For stains that won’t budge or have appeared to ruin the metal, mix together water and baking soda to make a paste to clean the steel, wipe away with damp cloth and then rub down with olive oil to leave it streak-free. Be sure to buff out with a dry towel to get it to a nice shine and keep the surface from getting sticky.
