Did you know…?

Shiny lustrous locks aren’t  just for movie stars.  You can have them too if you want them.  Here are a few tips.

If you’ve got fine hair, look for a shampoo with wheat proteins and polymers. These ingredients coat the hair shaft making it look thicker (hence the lustrous look). You can also use spray volumisers. These will deposit a light mist of shine in the form of droplets but won’t make it all limp and lifeless. 

If you’ve got normal hair, try a shampoo that has silk amino acids, as these soften and repair hair structure. Lecithin also restores hair texture. To add that shimmery shine of the A-listers you can use gels and creams. To apply the product without it going all gooey, apply it on your palm, rub your hands together and pat gently on to your hair.

And for thick or heavy hair, use pomades they will not only make your hair shiny but will also moisturise so your hair is more supple.

Have you ever tried…?

Microfiber for Exfoliation. Those microfiber cloths they sell for cleaning and dusting. The fibres are ideal for exfoliating the skin if you need to. All you need to do is apply your favourite facial wash to the skin and lather using circular motions with the microfiber cloth. Rinse the face and the cloth and hang to dry!

Thought of the Month….

……….that imagination is your greatest gift. Do not be afraid to use it.

Imagine yourself as being okay right now. Totally okay.

Imagine yourself as Whole, Complete, and Perfect. With nothing to change, nothing to “improve.”

Imagine your heart as being open again, your life as if it were starting over in the most important ways.

Can you imagine this?

Then you have just created Tomorrow.

Neale Walsch

 Did you know…?

Mustard will remove lingering smells from old bottles. When cleaning out a bottle or bowl that has been used to store a food item that has left a lingering odour, sometimes soap and water will simply not cut the smell. Yellow mustard can remove that lingering smell in just a few moments. Simply add a little mustard and warm water to the container and swish around for a few moments. Rinse well and the smell is gone.

Have you ever tried…?

Pumpkin seeds are exceptionally good for you. They’re like nature’s own health supplement and have a wide variety of nutrients in them. They’re full of zinc, iron, magnesium and calcium. Plus our favourite omega-3. What more could you want!? Have a handful of pumpkin seeds every day and enjoy some great health benefits.

Thought of the Month….

……that miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature.

C.S. Lewis said that and it is an enormous insight.

If we think that miracles are normal, we will expect them.

And expecting a miracle is the surest way to get one.

Did you know…?

Exfoliating the underarms can increase the effectiveness of deodorant. The pores of the underarms can get clogged just as easily as the pores of the face. While many people exfoliate their facial skin once a week, they rarely exfoliate the skin of their underarms. Using the same exfoliating wash on the underarms can remove the clogs from the pores leaving the skin brighter and your deodorant more protective

Have you ever tried…?

Baby oil to make your own scented bath oil. Finding bath oil that smells like your favourite perfume can be difficult. Instead of settling for some other lightly scented oil that is outrageously priced, why not use baby oil to create your own bath oil? Simply add a few drops of your favourite scent to 1/4 cup of unscented baby oil. Add to warm bath water and voila, scented oil. 

Thought of the Month….

...that the mere apprehension of a coming evil has put many into a situation of the utmost danger.

F.L. Lucan said that, and it is right. There is no faster way to bring about misfortune than to think it is coming.

Thought is a powerful force, and it is a creative tool that many people give little energy to — or abandon in the face of any real threat to safety or stability.

What are you worried about today? Why? Rather than worry about it, would it not be a better use of your mental time to visualize a positive outcome?

Use your mind in this way today and you will have tapped one of the most extraordinary tools for the creation of your tomorrows.

Did you know…?

Sleep is made up of different stages. During a normal night we will cycle through the different stages several times.

– Stage one: the ten minute period of light sleep or dozing.
– Stage two: a deeper sleep that lasts for about 20 minutes and
– Stages three and four: types of deep sleep.

We need deep sleep! This is when our body and brain recover from the day. If you aren’t getting enough sleep you are not going to be able to function at a normal level. So make sure you get your 8 hours a night. Keep your room just for sleeping. If there are stimulants in there you will take longer to switch off. Make it comfortable, dark and cool. And of course, if you are having real trouble sleeping see your doctor.

Have you ever tried…?

Homemade Vitamin E cream for anti aging. Many of the anti aging products today are fabulous, but lots are also full of chemicals that are horrible for sensitive skin. Instead of trying a new product – hoping you will like the ingredients – make you own anti aging cream. In a bowl add 2 tsp plain yogurt, 1/2 tsp honey, 1/2 tsp lemon juice and the Vitamin E oil from 3 capsules. Mix and apply to the facial skin. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse away. Vitamin E is a fantastic antioxidant. As with anything new, make sure to do a test patch of your home made cream before applying fully.

Thought of the Month….

……that no one does anything they do not want to do.
You always have a reason–and usually, a pretty good one– for doing what you are doing and choosing what you are choosing. Be careful not to convince yourself that you are doing something against your will. Such a thing is impossible.
Therefore, be honest with yourself as to why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly, knowing that you are always getting to do what you want. The statement “I have no choice” is a lie. You can choose. You simply do not prefer the alternatives available to you, for whatever reason. So you select the outcome that you most prefer. Isn’t that power?

Did you know…?

We all want a healthy body! And many of us spend our lives jumping from diet to diet forgetting the importance of muscle. For every extra pound of muscle we add to our bodies we lose an extra 50 calories a day whether we are active or not.  For a healthy body, make sure to build muscle as well as lose fat.

Have you ever tried…?

Blueberries to reduce inflammation. Blueberries contain antioxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is now thought to be one of the main causes in certain diseases like diabetes and cancer. These antioxidants also fight off free radicals which can leave the skin looking and feeling younger as healthy cells begin to regain control over the free radical producing cells.  Considering it is fruit so it’s nice and healthy we think it’s worth a try!

Thought of the Month….

….. that when you see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is not beneficial to go out and build more tunnel.

It was John Quinton who observed that politicians do that.

Maybe you’ve caught yourself doing it, too.

Just when things look like they’re getting better, you start seeing more things that “aren’t right,” or “could go wrong.”

The Universe is essentially a friendly place.

So friendly, in fact, that it will give you exactly what you expect it to.

Isn’t that wonderful? Of course, it depends on what you expect…

Did you know…?

Your makeup will last longer and will look much better if you apply it when your skin is slightly moist. If you apply foundation to dry skin, it will not smooth out well, nor will it blend well. Dry patches of skin disrupt your blending and give you those funny blotchy patches. If you spritz lightly with water then gently pat dry with a tissue you should have the perfect base to apply makeup over.

That said; make sure to give your face a few minutes in between applying your moisturiser and your foundation. Most moisturisers are designed to soak deep into your skin to really nourish the bottom layers of your skin. If you apply your foundation directly after this, it will get drawn deeply into your skin with the moisturiser. This is obviously not good! Your foundation will literally ‘disappear’ and your pores will end up clogged!

The best thing to do is:

1. Cleanse

2. Apply your normal treatment and moisturisers

3. Wait 5-10 minutes for these to soak in

4. Lightly mist your face with water and pat dry with a tissue

5. Apply your foundation

6. Enjoy fabulous makeup!

Have you ever tried…?

Vaseline – When it comes to dealing with the labours of foot work, the cracked heel has to be the most disconcerting. No pedicure or beautiful sandal can make up for that dried skin on the back of your foot. In order to treat cracked heels quickly and easily, many doctors recommend old fashioned Vaseline. Applying Vaseline to the foot before bed and covering with a sock will allow the petroleum jelly time to soak into the cracks of the foot. Over a few short days, you will see a substantial change in the way your foot looks and feels.

Thought of the Month….

…that you must be good to yourself if you are ever going to be any good for others. 

This means take a day off once in a while when it’s not scheduled.  Eat of piece of chocolate when it’s not recommended.  Take a nap when it’s just not possible. Get your face into a good book for an hour when you can’t afford to. Soak in a tub when there’s no time to. Stop everything when you’re not supposed to. Do this now, right now.

Olive oil could also be your best friend when shaving because it can cause hair to stand on end. It works wonders to bring the hairs of the leg to attention. To give it a try when shaving, apply the olive oil directly to the leg and work into the skin for a few moments. Shave as usual, then notice how close the shave is with this natural oil.

Have you ever tried…?

Aspirin to remove underarm stains. Aspirin is known as the perfect headache relief medicine, but it also holds power over perspiration stains. When the underarms of your favorite white shirt has lost that bright, white luster try using aspirin to remove the sweat stains. Simply crush two aspirin and mix with a bit of water. Soak the stained area for three hours and launder as usual.

Thought of the Month….

…that virtue cannot separate itself from realitywithout becoming a principle of evil.

Albert Camus said that, and he was right. When we become too virtuous, when we think ourselves to be oh, so right, we become dangerous to ourselves and others.

Be careful of those who imagine themselves to be on the High Road while everyone else is walking the Low. If they really are on the High Road, they will offer to take everyone else with them, not simply tell others that they are going the wrong way.

Did you know…?

 

Essential fatty acids need to be balanced in the body. Research shows that many people have far too many Omega 6s and not enough Omega 3s. The best source is apparently NOT fish oil, however. Flaxseed oil has a more concentrated source of Omega 3s than fish oil … and without the fishy taste! The flaxseed oil can be sprinkled on salad to increase the anti-inflammatory response in the body. This can decrease the effect of allergies on the body and decrease the risk of developing inflammation based conditions like diabetes and arthritis.

 

Have you ever tried…?

 

Snacking on nuts. A few handfuls of raw nuts as a snack food can be really satisfying. Why? Because the protein and fat in them not only satisfy the hunger, but give energy in abundance. Add to this most nuts contain potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, zinc, vitamin E, selenium, copper, calcium and thiamine. Have a handful of nuts every afternoon and you’ll get a variety of important vitamins and minerals.

 
Thought of the Month….
…that there is a solution. There is. But you must keep going to find it. You cannot stop, you cannot give up.
This is about more than just patience. This is about more than just persistence. This is about absolute knowing that you are able to find a solution with faith.
When you know this, you never give up…and the sense of struggle goes away. You simply keep moving forward knowing that, in the end, all will work out.
And that along the way there will be great insights and wonderful remembering.

Did you know…?

There are lots of little things you can do at home to help get rid of your cellulite.

– Use an exfoliating sponge in the shower. This will stimulate blood flow to your skin and help increase circulation to carry away the cellulite
– Massage your fatty tissue areas daily to break up the fat
– Wear body-shaping pantyhose that contour your thighs to compress the fat and help with circulation.
– Reduce your intake of caffeine and quit smoking.
– Increase your water intake.

Depending on your body type and skin shape, your cellulite may never completely disappear but you can help it along!

Have you ever tried…?
Socks to Cure Insomnia. When the body gets cold, the heat is all reserved for the core of the body. This leaves feet feeling chilly and increases the chance of waking up in the middle of the night. Slipping into some warm, fuzzy socks just 20 minutes before bed can decrease the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and stop those mid-night wake-up sessions that leave you foraging for sweets and unhealthy snacks.

Thought of the Month….

…..that love is sometimes shown in the things you don’t say, don’t keep track of, and don’t notice.

 

The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go.

 

None of us is perfect, but we can all be perfect friends and perfect partners by allowing those that we love to be imperfect.

 

Give those around you the “break” that you hope the world will give you on your own “bad day” and you’ll never, ever regret it.

Did you know…?

Peanut Butter (Soy Butter / Almond Butter / Nutella) Can Cure Hiccups. At first, hiccups are fun and then they move to annoying. When you cannot break the hiccups, try eating a thick nut butter like peanut butter. Place one large tablespoon in the mouth and hold for 10 seconds. Then, try to swallow the butter whole. The hiccups will stop every time…. so they say!

Have you ever tried…?

Herbs and Vitamins for hair loss. Men and women alike lose hair as they age. For some people, this hair loss becomes noticeable before they would like it to. While a healthy diet and good hydration are key to keeping hair full and intact – there are a few vitamins and herbs that can boost the fullness and root health of the hair. These vitamins and herbs include Vitamin A, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Flaxseed Oil, Zinc, Biotin and Vitamin B50

Thought of the Month….

…that love is the centre and the core of everything, and that Self is the place where all love must begin.

Those who love others grandly are those who love themselves grandly. Those who have a high toleration and acceptance of others are those who have a high toleration and acceptance of themselves.

You cannot show another a part of you that you cannot show yourself. Therefore, begin where all growth, where all evolution, where all love must begin: with the person in the mirror.

Will you not love yourself grandly today? For the world’s sake?
