Love

   Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen
��


  First I want to say that this post was inspired by my lovely friend Sally, Who wrote a Similar post on her blog. ( check it out by clicking here ) She wrote about something I feel really passionate about and I think nothing can change my mind about this.

 In her post Sally talked about different religions and how all of them are connected and have something in common. That none of these religions teach us to hate but the complete opposite. They teach us to love each other ''How can one love god, If one doesn't love people around, If you cannot love people whom you can see and interact with, how can you love someone you've never seen or heard?'' 

 And there are a lot of people who judge each other for being another nation, race, or religion. and at the end of the day they go to the church say all of those words they learnt by heart without thinking and say they believe in god. the thing is they don't even realize they're doing something wrong. 

 I've read about people who changed their religion to believing in Jesus and became saint for our church. well, for me religion doesn't matter. think about it, imagine there are two people one if them is muslim but he is kind and helps and cares about people around him and a second person who is Christian but he is selfish and cares about only himself, Do you think he will get into heaven just by being a christian? All i'm trying to say is that Heaven is for everyone despite you nation and religion. 
  I don't think god loves one more than the other, that means you shouldn't too. treat everyone like they deserve to be treated. Love people. 
  recently i found these quotes and I really wanted to share them with you. These are little kids explaining what love is: 

Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday
Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.
You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it.  But if you mean it, you should say it a lot.  People forget.
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You know that your name is safe in their mouth.
Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.

Calendar 2015 / Part 1






 This is a post for all of you, I think it will be useful for bloggers out there as well. I think you noticed that i have changed my style lately. now my post images make a lot more sense. That's because I discovered a new editing web site called Canva - If you have read my ' Blogging Tips ' post then you probably know how obsessed i was with Picmonkey I used to make my headers with it and I made my 'about me' widget with that as well, but then I discovered that a lot of experienced bloggers use pinterest and through it I found Canva. It's so easy to use. I really like editing pictures and making collages so I decided that I would release a Calendar every three months on this blog and it will have my favorite pictures as an inspirational board. For months from January - to - March I decided to go with the black and white theme. You can print these out or just make them your wallpaper - That's what I will do.

Here I used pictures that I enjoy seeing but of course you can change them, how you ask? 

I filmed a little tutorial on how I made this calendar, in case you need a guide. Overall this is just a really great website that i wish I discovered earlier.

A little bit of Everything / The First Post of 2015!






 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year you guys! This is the first post of 2015 and I didn't want it to be a regular beauty post, even though I am planning on doing a lot of them in the future.

 A lot of things happened in 2014. It started as usual but got a little crazy at the end. I am honestly satisfied and even more, I'm really grateful for everything I experienced. First of all I want to thank you for all the support on this blog. I wouldn't have done half of this without you. I really notice and appreciate your comments. I'm also thankful to god for all the new people I met. I can't skip this one person whose name is Lika and she has done as much for this blog to survive as I did. She's really good at drawing and you should go - follow her on weheartit by clicking her name. Overall she's just an amazing person. I'm also thankful for all of those, old friends that never left me and hopefully we'll stick together for a lot more. Also, my cousin was born - and this is probably the most important thing of last year, he  brought a lot of joy and happiness to our family. and finally I have participated in DWTS which was right on new year and it was a huge blast.

 This was a little summery on my previous year, hopefully this year will be as good or maybe even better for all of us. 2015 just started but it already surprised me. Now you are probably wondering what I am planning to do on this blog this year? more additional posts every week. I'm trying to film too so be expecting some DIY projects really soon. I know How you enjoy my playlist series so as a tradition we're gonna keep making those. Who knows maybe I'll start posting more lifestyle posts? Let's see how it goes.

   Love,

Beauty Tips/ Using Honey



The third Product in this series will be honey. 
Honey's antibacterial properties make it an excellent cleanser for acne. Apply some raw honey on to the effected area and rinse off after 10-15 minutes. 

Honey has bleaching effect so regular use of honey on the effected area can dramatically fade out old or new scars.

It is also very smoothing, hydrating and moisturizing. Use raw honey as a facial mask or use it in any DIY facial mask recipes to reap it's benefits.

Honey can be an effective hair lightener. If you want to know how check out my previous post

Beauty Tricks / Using a Lemon

  Lemons have an amazing range of beauty benefits. That's why I decided to choose a lemon to be a second product in my series.
 As one of my friends says - When life gives you lemons , make a beauty product.
So let's get started!

Lemons can work for blackhead treatment. I know, I know sounds too good to be true but because lemons are antibacterial, they can help treat acne. just slice a lemon, and squeeze the juice on your face. your blackheads will start to fade before you know it!



If your elbows or knees appear to be dark, simply rub them with half of a lemon and it will work as a bleacher.

They can also work as teeth whiteners. Mix baking soda and lemon juice. apply it to your teeth with a Q-tip. then use your toothbrush to scrub your teeth and rinse. It's way cheaper than going to the dentist's office.

Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and citric acid, so they can help brighten your skin used over time.

Put a little lemon juice on your lips before you go to sleep and rinse it in the morning. it will remove all the dead cells but obviously don;t try this if you have any cuts or if your lips are chipped.

you can make your hair lighter with lemon juice. To know more about this check out my previous post called  How To Lighten/Ombr√© Your Hair Naturally


 Hope you enjoyed!

Beauty tips/using an ice cube







 I decided to make this series of posts featuring different products that are affordable and everybody has them in their kitchen. Really beneficial can be an ice cube. I have talked about some benefits of it in my other posts as well, and i felt like why not dedicate the whole post to it.

  • an ice cube massage tightens the skin,
  • minimizes pores,
  • fights acne,
  • ease wrinkles
  • and improves blood circulation that helps heal blemishes.

  Ice cube can make your skin glow. just take your ice cube tray but pour orange juice instead of water. rub it on your face in circular motions and do it for about a minute. It will give you a natural healthy glow. 

  I was really surprised to find this one: Ice cube can work as a primer. Just rub it on your skin before putting your make up on and it will make your skin look fresh and help your makeup stay longer.

   It's really effective acne fighter. You can read more in my previous post How to get rid of acne overnight. basically you do the same thing. put an ice cube on your pimple and it will make it less red or maybe even disappear. 

  Ice can help you depuff your eyes. Brew really strong green tea, pure it in an ice cube tray, freeze it, wrap the cube in a cloth and move it slowly under your eyes. 

  Tweezing your eyebrows can hurt. to avoid the pain put an ice cube on your eyebrow to sorta numb the area. then it won't hurt any more.
