Soooft Lips for a New Year's kiss....

Soft lips. Nearly no one has soft lips in the winter without a little bit of help from lipbalms or lip scrubs. Here are some of my favourites for the yummiest lips ever.
Note: Having moisturised lips automatically makes your lips bigger ( The same way around)
Lip scrubbing and moisturising:
There are thoese amazing Lush sugar lip scrubs that you can lick afte you use them, and loats of other ones you can buy. But is you are on a budget or you just don't want to spend the money here is what you can do:
1. Apply vaseline  and wait for about five minutes.
2.Take an old toothbrush ( never throw them away, you can also use them for highlits when you dye your hair) and "brush" your lips gently. all the dead skin will be removed.
3.Apply your favourite lipbalm and you are ready to go.

 My favourite lipbalms have to be the ones from the body shop. I don't have enough words to explain how super moisturising they are and they are not a bit sticky and they taste so good!

Deep condition hair with Olive Oil

Olive oil. All I can say about it is that it is a fabulous remedy for damaged hair and here are some quick and easy steps to getting shinier, smoother, non frizzy hair using olive oil.

First of all make sure you are not wearing your favourite blouse because olive oil can stain, and it is very hard if not impossible to remove. ( I know from personal experince :))
Pour a little bit on your palms an work through the ends of your hair, and apply it mainly in the pony tail area. Some people might say it is good for the scalp, but when I applyed it all over my scalp, because the formula is so greasy, even after shampooing my hair twice, it looked like I had the oliest hair ever the whole week!

Put your hair in a shower cap and wait how long you want to. 15 minutes would be ok, but you can leave it in overnight if really feel like your hair is very damaged. 

Wash your hair really well and make sure you don't have any olive oil left!

 I recommend this people with wild untamable hair, I just feel it would work beter for them, but I have fine, very straight hair and still love it! I should say the smell is quite strong and it smells like olives which is not the most pleasant smell, but it won't linger in your hair so it shouldn't be that much of a downside. I know olive oil can be used for everything, what do you like to use it for?

My Christmas wishlist

Dear Santa,
I want so many things, and you don't have get everything, but you can try, right? :)

Maroccan oil. I heard it's really good, and my hair gets really frizzy and dull because of the weather. I mean Santa, you don't want me to have frizzy hair, everyone knows it ruins the Christmas atmosphere. ;)

Benfit Pudeflage. Santa, after being so exited on Christmas Eve and not being able to sleep, how do you think I will ever be able to make my udereye  concealer last all day on Christmas day?

The Lush Snow fairy shower Gel. I bought it last year and I really loved it, I want it again! Seriously Santa it is pink and it's in the Christmas limited collection.

Vera Wang Princess Perfume. I'll smell good, and I'll be your Snow Princess!

OPI You don't know Jaque. It's muddy, it's OPI, it's dark, it's perfect. You don't want me spending Christmas with last months colour on, do you?

Note: It's funny how I'm not actually going to get any of this stuff because for Christmas I'm getting a new phone, but anyway I did it for the fun of it. :) Tell me in the comments you Christmas wishlist and I tag you to do it if you want to. :)

Evian thermal water spray!

   The Evian spray is actualy thermal water. Thermal water is so great and it has a billion uses!
1. The most common Evian setting one is a makeup setting spray. You spray it on your face after you've finished your makeup, or during the day to refreshen your face, and to moisturize and cool down you skin. (fab in the summer)!Plus it absorbs into your skin quickly enough.
2. You can use it to apply pigments. Just spray you brush, load it up with the pigment of your choise and apply it as usual. This way there will be no fallout, and the pigment will look much more brighter!
3. You know thoese annoying red dots you get after epilating? Just spray your skin imediately after your done and guess what? No more red spots, only smooth skin! It calms down your skin so well, I am toatally addicted to it!
   Here are my favourite tips! Other brands have different thermal waters to try out, but I know for sure the Evian one really works!

Dry out nasty Pimples!

Who doesn't hate pimples? And sometimes you just can't resist the urge to pop 'em! Here are some quick tips on how to dry them out!

1. Toothpaste works very well in an emergency, 'it is probabaly the fastest and harshest way, I try to avoid it because it's really drying, but it will drain out the life out of you pimple very quickly! You might want to moisturize the area aftewards, because no one wants flaky skin!

2. Eye drops will really help reduce redness, they don't only work for making your eyes less red, they make you pimples less red as well!

3. Ice cubes before putting your make-up in the morning will reduce the size, making it way easier to cover up your unwanted friend. P.S. green concealers cancel out redness!

4.  benzoyl peroxide 5% . This is a trick I haven't tried, so I can't tell you exacly how it works, but my friend loves it so I'll trust her judgement.

5.  Anti-zits creams and solutions.  Clean and clear, garnier, nivea, every brand seams to have one! Just find the one that works best for you, try one from a pharmacy, or ask your dermatologist!

Remember, try not to pop them! I know it is so tempting, but you are actually not helping at all! Try to forget it is there, I have an ugly pimple on my nose and it seams to shout at everyone:
-Look at me! I bet you can't miss me!
Yeah, I hope I don't pop it by the end of the day!

Quick workout tip for toned biceps!

  I really like the way my body looks, and I can say I have a nicely toned body. One thing didn't really like was my weak arms, and I have realized this 2 months ago, me and some of my friends were messing around, arm wrestling and I had the weakest arms! I came home and thought about it, looked for some weights at a local store and found nothing. Mum just told me to use 2l bottles of water. I seriously thought she was kidding me! But it turns out they are really great, and cost nothing.  I take one in each arm, and lift them one at a time. The key to getting the best out of your workout is to do a full motion,  make sure you strech thoese muscles really good. I do this nearly every day and I can see a Major improvement. I can now beat 5 girls at arm wrestling ( which I know sounds really stupid and childish.. :)) and you can already see a little bump on my arms when I flex them. I can say I am really pround of my too little bottles, just because they seem to be the best amount of weight! What's your fave workout tip?

Long lasting curls with rollers!

 I love the beautiful waves/curls you get with rollers more than a curling iron. It is in fact my favourite way to get pretty voluminous hair and I dare say they look the most natural! The only problem is that they don't last long on my thin, way too straight hair! So to make them last longer you don't need any special hairspray or "miracle" product, you just need a little bit of patience.
-I begin by putting the rollers on my dry hair, play around with sizes depending on the look you want.
-I then wet my hair with the rollers on my head, I know it sounds so wierd but this is the key to the long lasting bit!
-It is best to let the hair naturally airdry, but you can also use a blowdryer. It depends on the time you have, but I prefer to let mine airdry to avoid damage from the heat.
- Take off the rollers and spray them with hairspray if you want to, play around with them and the fun part, decinding how you want your hair up, down, messy bun etc.
 P.S. You can try this with boiled hot rollers. They are a special cheaper kind which you boil. So you'll boil them, put the rollers on, wait for the rollers to cool down and after that wet and dry hair.
