Post image for How To Make Aloe Water

Aloe has long been known for its benefits on the outside the body, from soothing sunburn to treating acne and even promoting hair growth (see our post on aloe plant uses & benefits). What’s lesser known, though, is that aloe may have incredible effects when taken internally, as well! Read more »

Instead of having to make it or if you don't have an aloe plant order from me!

Wife makes aloe vera water, but puts the get directly into a pitcher of water and lets it sit in the frig, and whenever I drink it i refill the pitcher with water as the gel sits at the bottom and it lasts about a week before I run out and she makes some more. More potent than using the blender as you can taste the thinckness of the water. I do not use any juice as the taste is almost like water, and i prefer it pure .

Post image for How To Strengthen Your Nails

No matter how many vitamins I take, my fingernails always seem to break so easily.  It makes it nearly impossible to ever grow them, plus it can be painful when they catch on things and tear.  Read more »

Duri Rejouvacoat saved my nails big time, never had such nice nails until the combination of duri and lush's lemony flutter cuticle cream. Totally worth trying in my opinion. Couldn't survive with out them now

Post image for Secret Hand Massage Trick

I don’t get real manicures often, but when I do, the hand massage is always the best part. We use our hands all day, every day, and it’s very necessary to give them a little attention every now and then. The hand massages I’ve gotten at nail salons are all very similar – and there’s one part that always feels the best. Read more »

Another interesting tip is to try to not vocalize the words. Screen Reading software is easily installed and will talk you through the installation with very little fuss. Basically, these programs send your subconscious messages of positive intent.

Post image for What ARE Antioxidants?

These days, it’s all about getting that antioxidant fix. Blueberries are filled with them, different types of beans are packed with them, and now lots of beauty products have them, too. For years I’ve known that antioxidants are good for me, but the other day it suddenly dawned on me: I have no idea what an antioxidant is.

Actually, free radicals are more accurately defined as this: "Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants." Free radicals themselves are not cells but can eventually form irregular cells. Also @paperstarz , the idea of telomeres being responsible for aging has shown little positive experimental backing. It does sound like a good idea, but sadly it doesn't answer a lot of questions. Yay science! Source: . N.p.. Web. 11 Nov 2013. .

I love this article! These damaging free radicals are missing an electron, and antioxidants donate an electron to these cells to stop the production of these free radicals! Antioxidants are very much needed in the diet, but you also have to be careful, because ingesting too much antioxidant (like people who take too high of doses of vitamin E) is linked to heart disease. So make sure you get your antioxidants! But be careful to not overindulge :-)

Post image for Bobby Pins Reinvented

Bobby pins are always something I seem to find laying around, but never really think to use since my hair routine on a day-to-day basis is pretty basic. They’re such a common hair accessory — half the time you never really know when people are wearing them because they are generally meant to be hidden, pinning back loose hairs or securing a style. For this post, I wanted to try using bobby pins in a different way — having them visible!  Here are three easy ways to reinvent the bobby pin. Read more »

Being a manufacturer of bobbypins in India, I just love these designs have been created. Please do visit our blog Saimanbobbypinsindia.blogspot.com and also watch the SAIMAN Strong Bobbypins Video Test, to check the strength of bobbypins, because feel that the consumer deserves a certain degree of quality, which is not prevalent with manufacturers nowadays. But am trying to that difference, because I love this industry so much and very close to my heart. Thanks. :-)

I use the egg and olive oil mask treatment and it makes me feel great. Other times, I use egg, banana, avocado, coconut milk, honey and olive oil (preferably extra virgin) and it feels much much greater than just the egg and the olive oil. I have heard about the ACV. Do you use the Apple Cidar Vinger after rinsing the egg and olive oil mask from your hair?
Janet Diaz -Apr 10, 2014, 9:12AM
Thanks for sharing these many wonderful tips. I am familiar with the other tips, following them and getting results too. But i don't know about carbonated water, it is new to me. I think it would help hair from the frizziness . I'll surely try this one.

Post image for Road Map Nails Inspired By Roshambo: Paper-Scissors

The third Roshambo video brings us back to where it all began: Paris. The final chapter in the series was filmed throughout the streets of Paris, so this inspired me to try a transfer technique on my nails using a map of the magical city. For something that looks complicated, it’s actually really simple to achieve. You can do this with any map, and it’s fun to pick out certain places that you may have traveled to or special spots that you want to put on your nails. Read more »

tip: Make sure to test on a small part of your face or on your arm. I did this mask but added mashed bananas and olive oil, and i didn't think i was allergic to any of these things and i put it all over my face. A couple minutes later my whole face was stinging and red and i was having a reaction. So, definitely test it first!
