Storing your bras incorrectly may cause the underwires to poke out after just a few wearings. To keep them from getting twisted, store your bras on a hook in your closet, rather than in a dresser drawer.
The only aspect of our travels that is interesting to others is disaster.
When bringing out clothes that have been in storage for awhile, try using lightly-scented water when ironing. Add some to your iron and, using the steam setting, brush it gently over your clothing. Lavendar water is a good one to use, but try any subtle scent you like.
It's not the men in my life that count, it's the life in my men.
