Look #1: On the Go
Ramp up your sporty look! When you’re a busy Mom on the go it can be hard to make time for exercise. What’s the first step? Making sure you have the right attire!
Whether it’s a big date night or ladies night out, a Mom’s work is never done. Luckily, with our selection of chic pieces, an ensemble worthy of a celebrity is only a click away. After all, all work and no play is no way to live in this style!
Indie Rock PLUS Derek Cardigan’s. – does that not sound like a match made in heaven? We recently attended Zerbin’s show at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver, BC. Zerbin is a band of four guys who not only rock but rock out with Derek Cardigan’s! From Edmonton, Alberta the band is currently touring Canada and we were lucky enough to catch their show here.
In celebration of Earth Day, we put our thinking caps on and have come up with some pretty nifty ways to reuse your old contact lens cases.
Now, if you’ve been wearing contact lenses since before you can remember, you probably have a bathroom cabinet or makeup drawer full of these little guys. But before you go throwing them away, why not try one, two, or if you’re feeling adventurous, three, of our suggestions on how to give your contact lens cases a second life to keep them out of the landfill.
Beads, Buttons & Thread – Nothing feels better than finally buying that jacket you’ve had your eye on… but what to do with that extra button they always give you? Use your old contact lens case for storage! Small to medium size buttons stack 6-10 per case.
Earrings – Drill tiny little holes, put a hook through them and hang them on your ears. No no… use your old contact lens case to store your earrings! Having an extra set or extra backings at the office, in your purse or at home is always a good idea. They’re a perfect size, easy to find and are secured with a lid. How clever.
Earplugs – Traveling to new places, you never know when earplugs may come in handy. We recommend storing them in your old lens case to keep them clean, dry, undamaged and easy to find!
Vitamins & Medications – Now we know walking around with a 400 pill Aspirin container may look (and sound) a little suspicious, imagine trying to explain it to coworkers or boarder security! So why not use your old contact lens case to store a more useful amount. One container can hold up to 10 Aspirins… just enough to last you for that weekend birthday celebration!
Glitter & Paint – Get Crafty! Use your old contact lens cases to sort those tiny items in your craft kit or to help down size some of your paint containers.
Loose Eye Shadow & Mineral Makeup – Cute tiny clutches are perfect for a night on the town, however they quickly run short of space! Down size and make your touch-ups easy and portable. Items like mineral makeup and loose eye shadow can be perfectly stored in your old contact lens cases.
Extra Screws, Nuts & Bolts – We have all assembled do-it-yourself furniture from Ikea. Two long hours later and you’re done. Ugh. Then the panic sets in, why are there extra screws left? Did I forget something? Probably not, but for peace of mind why not keep your spare screws, nails, nuts and bolts in your old contact lens cases. You can even label them to match the piece of furniture.
Hair & Beauty Kit – Use your old contact lens case as an emergency hair and beauty kit. Store hair gel, moisturizer or hand cream in the containers and wrap your hair elastics around the centre.
