Next time you follow a recipe where you need to separate egg yolks from whites, try this. Peel a clove of garlic and rub your fingers with it. Carefully break an egg into a bowl. With your garlicky fingers, pick up the yolk. Voilà. You can now marvel at how perfectly it separates from the egg white. If it’s egg-peeling time, there are two easy ways to do it. When cooking eggs, add a teaspoon of baking soda to the boiling water. This will make peeling eggs much easier. You can also place them under cold running water as soon as they’re ready. The eggshells will come off much easier. And you won’t burn your hands while peeling the eggs.
We all want to look good, and we think it is hard to “dress to impress.” You don’t need to be a fashion designer to look amazing and have a sense of style. Here are some simple tips that’ll elevate your outfit game to the next level.
There are tons of people outside! You’re making your way through the laughing, chatting, shouting, and constantly MOVING crowd. It’s a nice summer night, and it feels as if the entire city has gone for a walk. You decide to take a shortcut through the park. You’re already near the lake when you trip... and the next thing you know, you’re rolling downhill toward the water! Luckily, you stop in time not to get soaked through. Time to estimate the damage. A bump on your head, ice cream all over your clothes, hands, and face. Green spots left by grass on your sneakers. Oh, and dozens of people laughing at your clumsiness. Well, it could be worse!
Let’s do a little experiment together, shall we? Do you have any old family photo albums lying around? Try to look for your parents’ or grandparents’ photos. If possible, search for photos where they’re the same age as you are today. You’ll see that even though you might look similar, there will be something odd about these pictures. Your family members appear to look older than you do today. Sure, you probably think it might have something to do with their hairstyles — those may not be fashionable anymore. Or with vintage-looking clothes. But even if we don’t take it into consideration, people still looked older back then.
It’s dark, and you can’t see anything. There’s slime all over. The ground is soft and moving. You try to find your way around by feeling the moving walls around you. After a while, you hear some painful screams in the distance. You call out for help, but no one responds. You’re a captain of a ship, and you were just consumed by the mighty Kraken. You keep tumbling over, not knowing if you’re even going in the right direction. The screams get louder and louder. It’s only a matter of time before you see someone. As you make your next step, a large piece of wood swooshes past you, almost knocking you down. That piece of wood was from the ship that the Kraken had swallowed. It had also swallowed the entire crew alive, so they must be somewhere inside the beast’s belly.
If you look at it on the street, you’ll think a fire hydrant is about 3 feet in height. But the actual size of the device used to provide water supply to firefighters all over the world is twice as large. That is if you count the rest of the hydrant, which is hiding underground. They are mostly red, and it’s not just a matter of urban design.
A basic sweater is an integral part of one’s wardrobe for the fall-winter season. You can combine it with a skirt, pants, jeans, and even leggings. And even though we tend to choose what to wear without thinking about it much, we can create many fantastic and comfortable ensembles with the help of a simple sweater.
There’re some days when we really need a good pat on the back. Everything seems to go wrong: the toast burns, the coffee spills, and our favorite shirt gets stained. Nobody knows why we sometimes get combos of such mishaps, yet the best cure for such situations is humor. Once you crack a smile, it gets 10 times easier to bear the challenges.
For many of us, shopping for clothes is one of the most pleasurable therapies out there. We want to look better and have nice clothes in our closets.

It has probably happened to you — you go to the mall to buy something specific, but end up with a lot of things you never intended to buy. You just try something on, the size is right, and you hand over your bank card. But we rarely think about how this clothing item will behave during wearing and washing.
Designers work hard to make product packaging as unusual and eye-catching as possible. After all, many of us won’t even appreciate an item that doesn’t instantly attract our attention. But some creative designers chose to leave hidden messages and surprises for their customers to show them how much they care.
We don’t pay a lot of attention to everyday things. What can be so interesting about a simple shirt or a pack of juice? But, as it turns out, some details in ordinary things can make their owners’ lives easier.
While some people try to follow all the new trends and search shops for ultrafashionable clothes, others just open their wardrobe, take out a skirt or a shirt that are sometimes older than they are, and look amazing. By looking at dresses or shoes that are decades old, we can only envy their durability and the loyalty of those who own them.
Sometimes you can buy an item of clothing and then discover that it’s too tight for you. Or it looks like it was bought for someone else. While shopping, we can get too carried away with thе process that we don’t notice some small details. And knowing them could help you understand, even in the fitting room, whether this piece of clothing fits you or not.
Harry Styles is often called one of the best-dressed celebrities, and there’s a reason for that. The musician loves to stun the public with his bold fashion choices, and we often see him stepping out in brightly colored outfits, ruffled blouses, floral suits, shirts with lace collars, and strings of pearls. But Styles has not always been such a sharp dresser, and his passion for fashion started with simple outfits, similar to the kind many of us have in our own closets.
Many women don’t believe in the power of accessories and oftentimes end up ignoring them. However, sometimes one small detail can enhance your best features and make them look much more attractive. In her blog, stylist Irina Ponyakina has visually demonstrated it on herself and proven that there is no such thing as a trifle in fashion.
Little things can spoil your look. Even basic clothes can add some extra weight if you forget about the details. For example, wearing a belt in the wrong width or a skirt that is longer than your coat. But after just a couple of special touches, your image will shine.
Summer is a great time for experimenting with style and trying out new fashion combinations. But sometimes, men miss minor details, ruining their entire look. The length of your shorts, the style of shirt, and even your socks are all seemingly small but important elements to any outfit that must be tended to if you want to look effortlessly chic.
Breaking the rules may be the only real rule in fashion, but the whole idea is to know how to break them properly. For example, wearing a shirt with a muffin top can hardly be an asset to your look since it makes your body appear disproportionate. Some other fashion hacks can help you find the exact figure you’re looking for.
Internet users often share photos that can satisfy the curiosity of anyone that has asked themselves the question, “What would happen if...?” For example, what will happen if you leave an onion in the trunk of your car for a few months? Or what would happen if you wear the same T-shirt every time you mow the lawn?
Fashion changes all the time but it’s the style that stays. People notice even the smallest details in one’s appearance, especially when meeting them for the first time. For example, 52% of women said they judge the personality of a man depending on the shoes he’s wearing. And shoes aren’t the only fashion items people pay attention to. Of course, there’s no universal rule on how to “look good” but there are some basic tips that can make men look more trendy and appealing.
Clothing mishaps happen sometimes and not only can they make us feel uncomfortable, but they can be bad for our health.

But these mistakes can easily be avoided if you know what to do.

The first ever mention of sanitary pads dates back to 4th century CE. Nowadays, they can be found in almost every household.
