    Dryel 101: Housekeeping for the Modern Day Wifey

    I recently celebrated my 4-year wedding anniversary and I learned so much in this time. There are no ‘guides’ on how to be a wife these days but there are certainly tips I’ll be happy to share with you, along with our friends from Dryel.  So before I was married, I only did laundry for myself and my dog Jacob. It was so easy to just throw everything in together to wash, then everything into the dryer to dry. Once I got married, I learned about laundry from my husband. With his background in fashion, great taste in clothes and a conscious budget, he taught be how to stop ‘ruining’ his stuff.

    For example, here are some laundry rules I never knew before:

    1. Wash towels on their own to prevent fuzzies on your clothes
    2. Wash whites separately in warm
    3. Wash darks separately in cold
    4. Red clothes will almost always bleed in color and make white/light items pink!
    5. Zip everything up before you wash it, and tie any drawstrings
    6. Some clothes are dry clean only
    7. Some clothes are hang dry only

    Now that I have the basics, I have upgraded to laundry innovators and new technologies! I was so lucky to work with Dryel last year and will continue to work with them on testing out their range of products. If you are a laundry newbie or a modern wifey like me, take note! While we lived in New York, there were dry cleaners on every corner but now that we are in Vegas, you have to drive everywhere to even see another person. Suburban life is part of growing up and as we prepare to have a family, efficiency, convenience are of the utmost importance.

    Getting into my 30’s now, I want to buy some nice quality clothes and take good care of them too! I am a huge fan of fast fashion brands but once in blue moon, I will purchase something that needs me to take good care it. In comes Dryel, the at-home dry cleaning and laundry solution.  Dryel cleans 10 garments for the cost of one dry cleaned garment, and it works great on ALL YOUR CLOTHES everything from sweaters to blouses, blazers, dresses and trousers. The heat of your dryer activates the Dryel ULTRAcleaning cloth to release cleaning agent and steam that penetrate the clothing fibers. These vapors remove body soil and odors from your clothes that are then vented out of your dryer. Your clothes are left with a breezy clean scent. Dryel uses biodegradable cleaning agents and no harsh chemicals.

    I started getting back into styling again and the handy on the go pen has been a lifesaver! This works even on dry clean only garments too!

    • Dryel On the Go Stain Pen helps remove fresh stains instantly
    • It’s even safe on dry clean only clothes, delicates and hand washables such as wools, silks, rayons, linens, cottons and other special care fabrics
    • While squeezing pen, use scrubber like an eraser to eliminate stain and blot if needed
    • Ultra compact, it meets TSA 3-1-1 carry-on liquid requirements

    The costume designer Lyn Elizabeth Paolo’s work on ABC’s Washington, D.C., drama “Scandal” has garnered a lot of buzz of late, particularly regarding the way she outfits the show’s lead character Olivia Pope, a high-power “fixer,” or crisis-management professional (played by Kerry Washington).

    Out the Door in 15 Mins Flat

    If you’re a girl, you’ve probably experienced that moment of panic when a friend calls to invite you to go out — tonight — and you look like you just rolled out of bed. Perhaps it’s because you did just roll out of bed, but, regardless of the reason, you need to look sharp right away. Instead of turning down the offer because you can’t get ready in time, turn to some of these quick and easy ideas to make yourself look great without spending all day on it.

    Picking the Perfect Outfit

    A girls’ night out is about dressing up, but also about being comfortable. You aren’t going on a fancy date (although you may end up meeting some cute guys), so you don’t need to worry too much about looking as good as you possibly can. The best outfit recipe for a girls’ night out is one pair of dark wash skinny jeans with a cute top and sexy heels. The heels automatically make the jeans look fancy, and the top is the perfect way to show off your personality. Plus, you hardly have to think about anything to find an outfit that matches!

    Adding Great Accessories

    Don’t forget to add some accessories to complete your outfit. Choose a chunky bracelet that matches the colors in your top or shoes and a necklace that complements the neckline of your top. Lastly, make sure to grab a purse or clutch and transfer your essentials into it. A fancy bag can make a huge difference, and you don’t want to be lugging your usual purse around when you’re out and about with the girls.

    Doing Your Hair

    There are two major options for how to do your hair if you don’t have time to wash and style it as you usually do, but still need to look great. First, consider an updo, which is super forgiving and makes the messy look suddenly stylish. Second, consider clip-in consider clip-in hair extensions, which are really helpful for adding volume to flat hair. Because the extensions are already styled, it’s as simple as clipping them in and giving your natural hair the boost it needs.

    Adding Pizzaz with Makeup

    Take a few minutes before you head out to complete your look with some makeup. Focus on high-impact areas because you’ll probably be in poorly-lit places anyway, so nobody will see the subtle techniques. Start with eyeliner and mascara, then add a touch of blush and a lipstick that will make your look really pop. If you have time, shimmery eye shadow makes it look like you really went the extra mile.

    Not having enough time to get ready should never hold you back from enjoying a night out with the girls. Have some versatile clothes, accessories and styling tools on hand so you can get ready in a flash. And remember, your girls are the priority, so it’s about wearing things that not only look great, but also feel comfortable!
