Update a Hollywood Strip Light Fixture

Posted by farragio on Sunday, April 17, 2022, In : diy 

by Angela Propes

In an effort to update my bathroom as inexpensively (i.e. cheap!) as possible I decided to see if I could do something to the outdated Hollywood brass light strip fixture.

by Cailey George

Perhaps you have heard of beeswax - a substance used as an emulsifier in products such as lip balms and moisturizers.

Dumbing down a skin care routine so it is travel-friendly can be daunting. I used to need suitcases full of bottles and serums. I was tied to a rigorous routine when the sun came up and when the sun went down. My morning concoction of store-bought products came first, and then when evening came, I had a totally different set of bottles to lug out of my packed duffle. I won't even get into the makeup that came in between those routines. To say the least, this isn't sustain...
