Red lips

Every girl loves red lipstick, but it is so hard to find the perfect shade of red.
I wear Christian Dior in ‘Celebrity Red’ which is just divine for any girl with a warm tone skin type.

The perfect lipstick application:

1. Make sure your lips are nice and smooth by brushing them at night with a toothbrush to keep them exfoliated and follow with a good lip balm, I use Blistex.
2. Outline lips with a nice and sharp lip pencil in a complimentary shade of red, remembering not to go outside the natural lip line, as this might make your lipstick bleed.
3. Apply a good layer of lipstick with a lip brush to get the best application.
Enjoy the compliments!

Georgie in Space

Don't laugh, but as a cartoon character it is hard to meet other cartoon characters and real people for that matter. I have to wait for Miss Lizzy (my creator) to draw me out and about.
As you can imagine there are not many places that you can wear a pair of overalls!

Your quick monthly check is essential

Checking your car engine oil is something that you should get into the habit of doing regularly and is best done with your monthly car check. Once a month when you are at the petrol station do a quick check over your car, it won't take long and will save you heaps of frustration further down the track.
1. Pop the bonnet open and find the dipstick. Wipe it clean and replace it back into the dipstick tube. Remove the dipstick again and check to see the level of oil. The words, or words similar to 'full' and 'add' are engraved onto the dipstick. It will indicate whether the car has a sufficient amount of oil. If the oil level is close to 'add' then your engine will need more oil. DO NOT ADD OIL INTO THE DIPSTICK TUBE.
2. If you have a new car, look for the yellow section indicated with an oil sign. Usually it is safe to add about a litre of oil. Usually an old car pre 1987 will need an oil change every 5000 kms and a new car will need one every 10 000kms.
3. Check to see that you have enough water in your windscreen wiper container and fill with water if neccesary.
4. Check to see the level of coolant in your 'water reservoir container'. If it is looking low, fill with coolant. New cars do not use water anymore.
5. Check your tyre pressure. Your tyre placard, usually on the side of the drivers door, will tell you what tyre pressure you need.

With all the rain along come the spiders

Little Miss Muffet isn't the only one that gets frightened by spiders!
Why is it that spiders seem to love crawling across windscreens and always on the inside?
The poor things are just trying to get out of the rain and you will usually find them high up in the car, not down at your feet.
Tips to keep spiders at bay.
1. Spiders really dislike the scent of lemon, so the best thing you can do is to rub some lemon oil (essential lemon oil, not synthetic) onto a cloth and wipe down all of the rubber door seals of your car. Open the doors, wind down the windows and go around all of the edges.

2. Make a car freshener using a little lemon peel, (do not use the lemon flesh) a little lemon oil and some cloves. The car will smell delicious and the cloves will keep the moths away as well.
3. Try not to park near over hanging trees as spiders love them and do not leave your windows open, especially when parked in damp places.
