  2. If you want a really cold drink but you don’t like to wait, just wrap a bit of wet paper around and put it on the cooler, in 10 minutes you will have a really cold drink to enjoy this summer!
  3. Sellotape… we all hate when we can’t find the end of the tape roll. Just put a paper clip to mark the end and it will be much easier next time.
  4. To do a homemade fresh spray to keep your hair hydrated this summer you can just mixed coconut milk or water and olive oil and mix it all. Keep in a spray bottle and just spray into your hair when it’s dry. It will keep it much more hydrated and shiny.

  7. If you want to get tan quickly, you can eat carrots or pumpkin. Or just do a homemade bronze spray with oil and pumpkin.
