Summer has passed and we all are looking for new colors of make up to be glamorous and beautiful all day long. But it is kind of difficult to have everything we want in a variety of colors for every season. Lets see how we can make our own beautiful, colorful and shiny lip gloss at home fast and easily!
You will need:
• Eye shadows or blush in the desired color
• Petroleum jelly
• Essential oil, for example coconut, lavender, rose, almond (ATTENTION! when choosing an essential oil for allergies. Before using it test it on your wrist and check it some minutes later. If everything is ok, you can use it for your lips.)
• A glass or acrylic jar with cap
• A bowl to make the product
In a bowl put a small amount of petroleum jelly, for example half a teaspoon and add a bit of shadow, a small amount at a time, mixing it well until it reaches the desired shade. As you are adding color, it becomes more intense, so be careful with the quantity of the shadow that you put. When you reach the desired outcome, add 2 drops of the essential oil and continue mixing. When it’s ready, put it in the package with the cap and it is ready to use it.
Handmade lip gloss is a very unique gift for our female friends as well. We choose the color and scent that fits to each one, we wrap it up and we make our friends happy!
So make you own handmade lip gloss and you’ll never return to the old ones!
One hour of gym equals with drinking one glass of red wine. At least that is what scientists from University of Alberta in Canada support in their research. The results showed that a substance in red wine, called “resveratrol“, is beneficial and has the same value with the ones when working out at the gym.
According to Jason Dyck, which was in charge of the research, these results will help those who have difficulties in exercising. Resveratrol, after being tested on mice, is proven to be an effective antioxidant and now it will be tested on people with diabetes as well. In this case, if the results turn out to be positive, it will mean that the heart condition of a patient can be improved as if he worked out with hard and systematic exercise.
It is worth mentioned that there are various researches about the beneficial aspects of red wine. More specific, it has been revealed that those who drink one glass of red wine per day have fewer chances to get cancer or dementia.
For the wine enthusiasts these researches are good news, but there should be a limit in consumption. Scientists have reported that these benefits exist when we drink only one glass of red wine daily and have a healthy diet.
Except for red wine, resveratrol exists in grapes, peanut butter, dark chocolate blueberries and walnuts.
Perfume is a special and important feature for a woman. You can find a variety of them in the market, so the right choice is not that easy and requires special attention, time and searching. But how can you choose the one that fits you the most? Below you can find some tips that professionals suggest on how to choose the right one for you.
1. Stay in the “family”
Get an idea from the perfumes that you already have. Most people tend to prefer a primary perfume family, so they have a similar perfume sense. So, stay in the same perfume sense and try to experiment with different tones. For example, if you prefer perfumes with rose base, search for a perfume with base of another flower, like violet or jasmine. By remaining in the same family, you limit your primary searching.
2. Go shopping early in the morning
Buying a perfume is preferred to be done early in the morning. That’s because the sense of smell is better in the morning hours when your nose hasn’t got in touch with various daily smells yet. So start shopping as early as possible. Keep in mind that stress sharpens the sense of smell, so consider to go shopping for perfumes next time you feel stressed.
3. Spray and stop
Get a couple of different perfume bottles that interest you and spray on paper testers. If you can’t get one, spray in the internal of the cap (avoid spraying yourself). Smell the perfume one time and then stop. Go for a walk, see something else and avoid smelling it for at least half an hour! You should give it time to dry out and reveal its basic notes. When you smell it again, you will know if it’s the right one for you.
4. Restoring smell
Our glands of smell tend to “get tired” after almost three smells. What’s the result? You won’t be able to separate the perfumes or even end up with a headache. After each test of every perfume smell something neutral (ex. a piece of paper or even better smell some coffee beans that most perfume corners have). This will help you restore your sense of smell.
5. Test it
Once you identify some perfumes that you really like, ask for samples to test them at home. Perfumes may smell different from one person to another. That happens because its tones mix with each body’s natural oils and pheromones. Try one, per day and it is also important to avoid body lotions or even detergent smell on clothes. In conclusion, choose the best perfume based on your first impression. It is always the best to choose the perfume that you can’t help yourself but smelling it…
If you are a fan of DIY (do it yourself) the summer is the better season to work with your own crafts. The glass jars and bottles of every kind can be your best ally in this try. Except for bottles or jars, you will need various other objects which can be used for completing the craft. Simple or colored sand, pebbles, white or colorful gravels, candle, shells that you picked from the beach in your vacation, colors and paint brushes, glue, thin rope or fishing line or any other material you like.
Use old or new jars/bottles that contained preserves, jam, honey, wine, juice or compote and you can make useful utensils. You will use these utensils as decoration with summer themes for your balcony or for preserving food, homemade sweets and jam, spices etc.
After you choose what you want to do, search for the right size of the jar or bottle. If you want to make bottles for water or refreshments you will search for narrow and tall shapes. You can color them with a spray or you can paint them with your own drawings to give them a personal touch.
You can also decorate the balcony or a shelf with bottles. Fill them with colored or simple sand, pebbles, gravels or anything else you like. Choosing jars, you can use the same painting techniques or leave them without painting and decorate them with pebbles, gravels, shells, sand, candles or paint summer themes on them, to decorate the balcony or the garden. You can also use them as a flower vase or to store little things at the bathroom.
Be sure to use little jars if you have to decorate an internal space or to put them on furniture or bigger if they will decorate the floor, the garden or the balcony. You can also fill the jars with jam or sweet that you made, for personal use or gift. Such an idea will surely impress for its double use and your personal touch!
So try to make your own decorative jars and bottles and make a difference!
