Tips & Tricks for the Lady

I saw a topic similar to this on another board and thought it might be interesting (and helpful) to start a thread here and see what we can come up with.

It's not easy being a woman. So, to make things a little easier, why not share some of our tips on daily living? I'll start off with two (both of which I cannot claim originality for)  :P

1. Run in your panty hose? Want to stop it before it gets out of control? A dab of clear-colored nail polish on the run should do the trick.

2. To avoid losing your lipstick on your glass (and having to apply and re-apply), discreetly lick the rim of your glass before you take a nip - no lipstick lost on the glass!  :icon_lips:

Here's another: if you lose your earring back, you can nip the eraser off a pencil and use that to hold the earring in place until you can replace it.

Nail polish kept in the fridge keeps better.

You can buy sealant for lipstick too that stops it from getting on coffee cups. I don't know if it's available in North America, but you can get it in Britain. I forget what it's called though.

My mother really tried to make me a girl - perhaps she'll be comforted to know these tips will go to good use.

And if you lose a fan belt in your car you can replace it with a stocking to get yourself to the nearest garage. OK that one's not really in the theme of things, but what the heck.

I bought some earrings with backs that just slipped off.   Later I went shopping and saw a cheap set of earrings with great backs.   I bought them and now use those backs on any earrings they fit which is a lot of them.
Be true to yourself.  The future will reveal itself in its own due time.    Find the calm at the heart of the storm.    I own my womanhood.

I am a 69-year-old transsexual school teacher grandma & lady.   Ethnically I am half Irish  and half Scandinavian.   I can be a real <not allowed> or quite loving and caring.  I have never taken any hormones or had surgery, I am out 24/7/365.

Another helpful hint I learned from my SO is that on panties the tag goes on the left hip.

Also, most jewelry stores will carry extra backs to be purchased. And I believe I even saw backs available at WalMart a few months back, though I wouldn't swear to that. :-/ :-)

unless for a pair of "special" earrings I find no problems with lost backs.  I commonly see the displays of cheap earrings and such at stores and often see cards which have several different types of earrings on them (Juvinile Jewelry) and find I like one of the sets in particular for knock around daily wear and so purchase the combined sets, leaving the ones I'm not to fond of as junk and so have the backs for replacements.  These do not go well with finer gold and gold leaf figures though and for those I must go to a jewelry store as suggested.  You don't put a sow on a silk purse.

Also I find I like the "cylinder" type of back more then the thin "bow" type, as they are easier to remove when I go to bed.  better grip for my fingers and less pressure on thiner firgures when taking them off.  I like things like tiny animal figures and my favorite set is a pair of tiny, very delicately thin gold leaf rocking horses I got on the day my HRTscripts were first issued when I arrived at Redwood city early for the appointment and took a tour throug a nearby shopping center for something to do, though my unicorns are second favorite.

Another interesting thing about earrings.  I have both post and hook types and sometimes remove the hook from a nice set and attach it in my ears with a diamond or zerc stud through the hook hole, sometimes making for a very unique and interesting appeal.  One such set is a set of fine black hills oak leaves using real diamond studs to attach them.  The natural luster and "glow" of the gold with the prismatic effects of the diamonds is very charming and i get many requests to look at them closer and many want to know where I got them.

Have you tried Marks and Spencer? Bloody expensive undies, but well built, if that's what you're needing.

There are lipsticks that come with a glossy protectant you can put on that will keep it on you and not on anyone or anything else. Then again, it's pretty much universal that lipstick will rub off and you can just excuse yourself to the bathroom to reapply.

The only tip I figured out on my own is that..well, I have big thighs so when I wear a skirt, my thighs rubbing together is not comfy. So to combat that I sprinkle on baby powder to my inner thighs and that solves that problem for the day.
