Stuff to Make Life Easier
Nothing makes Instant
Breakfast drinks as smooth and creamy. The best thing
is, if you are in a rush to get out the door just pour in the
mix and milk, shake as you go - no electricity needed. The
special whisk ball inside whips up your breakfast drink as
well as any
blender -without the hassle. Drink right from the cup and when
you're done you can give
the Blender Ball a quick rinse or pop it in the dishwasher. You
can find the Blender Ball at most health food stores and online.
Bronzers are a quick way to brush
on a tan. If you can’t go in the sun because of TiBD medications,
this can be a good way to go. Bronzers are less messy
than creams, much safer than tanning and can offer you more
control as to how much color you want and where you want
it. Here are 3 of the top selling bronzing products for 2009.
Urban Decay Baked Bronzer
Great for everyday use for school or weekends.
shades give you a good selection of color choices. You may
need to reapply during the day.
Baked - for a lighter, almost gold
Gilded – a more tan color with some shimmer
Toasted – day-at-the-beach glow, very natural
- feel clean on
- great choice of color shades
- even color, no streaks
- can be used as sheer cream
- natural ingredients

Cargo (Water Resistant)
This is a great choice
for situations where you might need extra stay color that is
water resistant. Cargo is a good choice for all-day color because
it is long lasting and wears without fading for hours. Cargo
comes in only one shade allowing you to choose how tan to go.
Perfect for a more dramatic look too.
Clinique Almost Bronze
This bronzer gives you SPF coverage as well as great color.
Great if you are going to be outdoors. Clinique comes
in 2 shades:

What is filtering underwear and what does it filter? The built
in charcoal or carbon lining filters out the terrible smell
when you pass gas! This piece of clothing can really come in
handy if you are having a bad gaseous TiBD flare. The gas
odor is almost undetectable, someone sitting right next to
you will never smell a thing. And another great feature is
that the filter also muffles the noise! They come in a bunch
of different styles and colors too. Another option to filter
out the terrible smell of gas is a carbon insert that fits
in to any of the underwear you already own. Both the underwear
and inserts cannot be seen under your clothes. Probably the
best styles and color choice comes from a company in England
called Shreddies. They do ship to the US
and they sell a good quality product that will last through
a ton of washes.They also have a worldwide phone number or
email in case you have questions. There are other brands as
well, just search under ‘flatulence filtering underwear’.
Wet Happened Wet Bags are great to keep in your ‘In
Case Of Emergency Kit’. You can use one instead of a clear
resealable plastic bag to take your soiled clothes home in
after an accident. These bags are waterproof and
almost completely odor
proof, unlike plain plastic bags. They come in 5
actually pretty cool patterns and 2 different sizes – the
large is great for teens at 14” by 17”. They roll up well
so they don’t take up much room empty. No one will ever know
what’s inside and once you’re home the clean up is easy,
just rinse and toss in the washing machine to use again.
