Three Fast Fixes

Bad News: "My wedding ring has lost its sparkle, as it is full of sunscreen, lotion & other miscellaneous gunk".
Fast Fix: Apply a small bit of toothpaste on a toothbrush and give your ring a good scrub. Rinse with warm water. (Avoid the bathroom sink and use a small bowl for this maneuver--you don't want to drop any jewels down the drain). 

Real Bummer: "My favorite dress is full of static and keeps sticking to my legs, hips, stomach, et al.".
Fast Fix: The best defense against static cling is to rub a generous amount of body lotion to any and all areas that will be covered by your skirt or dress. Go ahead, lather it on--no gal feels attractive if her dress looks shrink-wrapped to her backside.

Hot Mess Alert: "I applied my mascara, and somehow a glob has made it's way to my eyelid, cheek, nose, etc".
Fast Fix: Wait at least 30 "Mississippi's" before reaching for the tissue to wipe away the errant chunk of makeup. Resist the urge to wet your thumb and smear the dab of dark--this will only create a bruise-like splotch that will be impossible to fix. Instead, remain patient and wait for the mark to dry completely and dab at the unwanted spot with a dry tissue. The mark will disappear just like that. (Insert snap?)
