Now, before we get really into this post, let’s just start with a huge disclaimer. Single life definitely doesn’t have to be something that you survive. Single life can be something that you choose. And for many of us, it is. When you go through a breakup, it can be traumatic. And it can be incredibly hard to adjust to life without your significant other. But sometimes, that’s the choice we make. When the relationship is bad, you’re unhappy, or worse – you know that sometimes, you have to be single to be happier. But that doesn’t make that awful feeling any better. And then, you’re faced with life as a singleton and the idea of dating. And that can sometimes be terrifying. So, it’s handy to work out have to navigate this part of your newly single lifestyle.

 

Whether you chose to be single – or not, whether you’re happy to be single – or not, you’ll often want to adjust to this new style of life in any way that you can. And it helps to be able to do this with a few tips to get you started out. Because the person that you once shared your days and your life with, is no longer by your side. And that can be a scary thing to adjust too. But it’s definitely not impossible, and it can actually be fun. So let’s take a look at the tips to help you.

 

  1. Get To Know Yourself

 

One of the best and most beautiful things that you can do here, is to get to know yourself a little better. Yes, you’re single, but it can be a great thing. You’re on your own, and you only have yourself to think about now. And it’s refreshing. So really make the most of that and work out what it is that you really want out of life.

 

  1. Enjoy Being Alone

 

As a step on from that, you’re going to want to get used to being alone, and actually enjoy it. You will realize that you don’t need to be in a relationship to feel fulfilled. In fact, when you can enjoy being alone, and do things that make you happy, then you’re going to become so much stronger. And this will then put you in a better position when you do want to meet someone else.

 

  1. Talk If You Want To

 

So the next thing is, that you need to know that it’s okay to talk about the breakup or how sad you’re feeling. You don’t just have to be this super strong woman that feels great on her own and is better off. Instead, if you are feeling effected, then talk about it. Talk to your friends or family or even a specialist if it’s going to help you move forward.

 

  1. Be Okay With Moving On

 

Okay, and then you’re going to want to make sure that you know that it’s perfectly okay to move on. You don’t have to stay single for a set period of time, or you don’t have to worry about it not working out. Instead, embrace the idea of meeting someone new and being happy in a relationship again.

 

  1. Discover New Ways To Date

 

Then, when it comes to the idea of dating again, why not consider new ways to do it? Don’t just hope you’ll have your romantic moment. Instead, consider options like dating apps, lesbian chat, or going on blind dates. And be open-minded about how you can meet someone that makes you happy.

 

  1. Know What You Want

 

But one thing that is incredibly important for you when you are looking to move on, is knowing what you want in a relationship. That way, you won’t get caught up in another situation that will hurt you, and you’re going to be happier when you do meet someone.

 

  1. Put Yourself First

 

So, one of the most important things that you have to do here, is to make sure that you’re putting yourself first. Because when you were in a relationship, you may notice that you were always thinking about your significant other, and putting them first. And that’s definitely something that’s natural. But now it’s just you – and you’re well within your rights to now put your own needs first, and focus on what you want. And keep that up, even when you meet someone else. This is the best way to make sure that you continue to say happy, whether you’re single or you meet someone new.

6 Hair Care Life Changing Tips

6 Hair Care Life Changing Tips

 

Summer season is still on, and it’s also the time when our hair is seriously exposed to different sources of harm. Due to the constant use of hair straighteners, curlers and blow dryers, our hair becomes dull and lifeless. Each hair type is different, and not everyone is resistant to these hot tools we tend to use on a daily basis. Just as we take care of our face and skin, we should equally surprise our hair with some healthy products and an improved beauty routine from time to time. Here’s how you can help your hair overcome these bad influences.

To ditch or not to ditch the heat?

It’s true that heat damages our hair the most, and therefore we should air-dry our hair whenever we have time and energy. But what about the women whose hair looks bad and shapeless after leaving it dry naturally? There’s a solution to that problem, and it involves mixing both air-drying and heating methods. This implies you should air-dry your hair for a short period, but leave the blow-dryer for the final touch. This way, you won’t use the heat the whole time. If you long for straight hair, this is how the process should look like. After you have shampooed your hair, rinse it, and then apply a conditioner and rinse it after a couple of minutes as well. It would be best if you could use the one with argan oil or shea butter ingredients because it makes your hair super soft. Use a hairspray for an easy comb and wrap your hair in a towel for about 15 minutes. When the time comes, comb your hair again and then use the blow dryer. Since your hair is semi dry already, you don’t need a high heat setting. Comb your hair the whole time while you’re blow drying it, and your hair will slowly become visibly soft and straight. I’m not completely sure this would work with everyone’s hair, but it costs nothing to give it a shot.

Treat your hair right

Our hair deserves a detox from time to time, because it gets oversaturated with heavy products and toxic shampoo ingredients which prevent your hair from growing. This is the reason we should hold onto more organic hair growth shampoo to get the effect of a strong and nurtured hair. This shampoo could be helpful since it consists of key essential vitamins and amino acids that clean the scalp of sebum build-up and it makes your hair healthier.

Must-have styling products

If you can’t imagine your day without using the flat irons or curling wands, then you should always use a heat protectant which detangles your hair at the same time. These keep your hair from getting fried and it has a softening effect.

A little trick you could use

The hot weather and humid are number one contributors to our constantly sweaty and greasy hair. Since it’s insane to wash and iron your hair every summer day (unless you are out of your mind), you could straighten the front section of your hair only, and then tie it with the rest of your hair in a low bun. Also, you could wrap a cute bandana around the bun, and there goes your effortless hairstyle without damaging your hair.

Stick to a more natural and healthier style

We are all aware that women like to keep their roots fresh, but it would be nice if you could let them grow for a change to avoid that artificial look. No, you won’t look low maintenance, and yes, visible roots are somehow trendy. Instead of obsessively dying your hair few times a month, you could go with the highlights once or twice a year. Babylights technique is great for those who like their hair subtle and natural, and most importantly, it keeps your hair look shiny and fabulous.

Coconut oil is a game changer

Made for multiple purposes, plus it does wonders to your hair. It is enriched with nutrients and minerals, and every woman should own this natural product since it’s budget-friendly as well. Scoop out the preferable amount from the oil bottle and slowly massage it into your hair; and you will notice how the coconut oil perfectly melts and covers your whole head. After you have soaked the whole hair, tie it in a bun and leave it for 30-45 minutes. Rinse your hair properly, so it doesn’t leave the oily traces. You will notice the difference immediately, and the routine could be repeated a few times a week.

This is just a roundup of tips and products you could use to promote your hair growth and prevent it from a severe decrease in quality. It’s up to you what you’re going to do next, since you know best what’s good for your hair care regime.

Things You Always Wanted To Know About Eyelash Extensions

By Guest Blogger, Jasmine A.

Things You Always Wanted To Know About Eyelash Extensions

 

There is nothing more a girl would like then to wake up in the morning looking fresh and immaculate without makeup. Even though having a flawless face is every girls’ dream, we all know that it is quite impossible. An ideal thing would be to have been born with at least perfect eyelashes which would sparkle up your eyes, but since that is also a rare thing then you should try to enliven your face and put eyelash extensions. Here are some of the reasons why that would be the best idea possible.

 

 

The basics

 

One of the most important things to know is that eyelash extensions and fake lashes are not the same things. Fakes usually last up to a day or less, and they can be easily applied by almost anybody, anywhere, however, the extensions can be only put by an experienced eyelash technician. Another thing very crucial to know is that, due to their durability, they can last up to a month! Fantastic, right? By having the eyelash extensions your eyes will get that stunning effect without putting on eyeliner or an eyeshadow. The amazing thing is that neither they are placed with a sticking glue like fake lashes, nor they are so heavy. They are attached to your lashes, and the beautician places them carefully one by one, of course depending on the style and size you wish to have.

 

 

The lush process

 

So, you have decided to book an appointment with an experienced technician, and you are wondering what is the process like. Don’t be anxious, because you are in for a wonderful treatment. You actually lay down on a bed, close your eyes, and relax with calming music while the technician attaches the lashes. The process doesn’t hurt at all, so there are no worries there as well. Some ladies reckon that is an absolutely satisfying process because you even get to have a nap while you are being beautified. Perfection!

 

 

Consider your unique style

Something that is very noteworthy to know is that eyelash extensions range in sizes and styles. It doesn’t depend on whether you have downturned or hooded eye shape, extensions can be attached to any eye shape and style and they would still look natural and lush. Since there can be some different ways of applying the lashes, you have to consider which style most suits you before coming to your appointment. Do you want to have straight lash, more curved lash, or the longest C curl? There is also a possibility in some customized lash salons to choose the thickness, length, and pattern, so make sure you investigate that prior to your booking. Another possibility is to choose the material, there are thin mink lashes, silk extensions, and synthetic ones. If you are not really sure about which style would suit you the best, you can always consult the beautician.

 

 

Nurture and care

 

Since proper eyelash extension process costs up to hundreds of dollars, firstly you have to check whether the technicians have passed some of the accredited eyelash extension courses, not everybody can become a quality eyelash artist. Then, you have to be alert and choose an experienced salon. The application itself is painless, and the care afterward is also rather simple. After the application, you shouldn’t wash your face or apply any makeup. Later, you have to brush them regularly, make sure that you wipe out the makeup with micellar water, and not to rub your eyes or tug your eyelashes. You will definitely prolong the durability of your lashes if you don’t soak them with water and avoid oil-based makeup products.

 

 

Possible downsides

 

To be honest, there aren’t any negative aspects of having eyelash extensions, it can only vary from your designated style, eye shape or the thickness of lashes. Some girls have troubles with comfortability, which happens if you wish to apply lashes that don’t suit your eye shape. Curly lashes create a dramatic look, and if a person has small eyes, then they might be too heavy for them. The solution is to consult an experienced eyelash artist and let yourself loose in their hands.

 

No matter if you choose to apply classical lashes or go for some more extreme extensions, you will most surely throw away your mascara and nobody will be able to take their eyes off you.

3 Ways That Upgrading Your Home with Tech Can Improve Your Peace of Mind

3 Ways That Upgrading Your Home with Tech Can Improve Your Peace of Mind

Self-confidence is a big deal. The more of it you have, the more likely you are to realise your full potential in any area of life, ranging from your professional life, to your social life, and even your gym-life.

 

Peace of mind, a related concept to self-confidence, is all about your ability to feel comfortable that things are the way they should be, and that you don’t have to worry about any dramatic upheavals or avoidable crises.

 

Typically, when people are talking about ways to improve your self-confidence and your peace of mind, they’ll be referring to purely psychological techniques. They may, for example, advise you to look into signing up for some sessions in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – CBT – with a therapist.

 

As it so happens, however, your peace of mind isn’t always being held back purely because of a negative mindset on your part. Sometimes, you may have genuine cause for concern when it comes to your home and immediate environment.

 

Here are three ways that upgrading your home with tech can help to improve your peace of mind.

 

Install security cameras

 

The world isn’t quite as safe as we might like it to be, and even those of us who live in relatively safe and stable societies, still need to be mindful of basic security concerns, and to watch our backs.

 

Home invasions are one of the most terrifying prospects for many of us – the idea that someone violate the inner sanctum that our home is supposed to represent, and possibly do great harm to us or our loved ones.

 

Even if your home isn’t being stormed by armed men in the early hours of the morning, however, burglaries and antisocial acts are plentiful cause for concern.

 

Investing in security camera systems allows you to track and identify suspicious behaviour – such as people checking out your property – and contact the police. The very presence of a camera will also act as a deterrent.

 

Install built-in water filters, and invest in a HEPA air filter

 

“Sick Building Syndrome” refers to assorted health conditions, including respiratory issues, which occur as a result of being exposed to noxious air within an enclosed space.

 

Believe it or not, the air in your home may be poisoning, as assorted dust mite, mould spores, gases from appliances, and other toxins, fill the air.

 

Your water can likewise be contaminated, with plastic bottled water often being contaminated by hormone-disrupting xenoestrogens.

 

Install built-in water filters, and invest in a HEPA air filter, for your health and peace of mind.

 

Buy a smart thermostat

 

People are very touchy about the temperature inside their homes. There’s usually a very precise range within which people will feel comfortable, and where the cost of the heating will seem to be justified.

 

Smart thermostat technology, such as the Nest Learning Thermostat, will “learn” your preferences and habits, increase the temperature when you need it, and decrease it when you don’t, in order to save money.

 

With a smart thermostat you can allow your home to adjust itself automatically to your preferred temperature, while saving you money in the process.

For skin to look pretty and healthy, it is imperative that you clean your face every night, even if you do not wear makeup.

It is also essential to take care of ourselves from the inside to have a beautiful outside. For that reason, it is recommended to take infusions of horsetail, thyme, dandelion or rosemary, which are very good body purifiers. Taking them after meals will help us improve digestion, get rid of gas and make us feel satiated. The juices of fruits and vegetables are also very good to purify the blood, although it is essential that they are natural and not packaged since they will provide all the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that we need. Lemon, celery, asparagus, apple, artichoke, and onion are excellent for detoxifying.

3.

Do not forget to exfoliate the skin, both the face and the body, once a week to activate blood circulation and eliminate dead cells. For the face, you can use a homemade exfoliator based on lemon, sugar, oil, and honey. For the body, you can use brown sugar and body oil, almond or honey. Massage the whole body and face with circular movements to relax the muscles. Likewise, facial massages are ideal for relaxing. You can undergo facial treatments at home with some oil or cream. Massage the entire face in all directions, rub the forehead from one side to the other, rub the neck from above to the clavicle with the thumbs, etc. Finally, you can apply rose water to refresh the face.

4.

To have beautiful skin, it is also crucial that we have a good diet. Do not forget that we are what we eat! This is why it is essential to drink a lot of water to have a well-hydrated skin and to consume fruits & vegetables that provide antioxidants and vitamins. Citrus fruits, nuts, bluefish and green leafy vegetables will help us retain our natural beauty.

5.

Indulging in any sports activity every day helps us feel better and fitter. Having a physically active life is also very important. Climbing more stairs, walking to places close by instead of taking a cab, walking the dog, etc. – everything counts! At the end of the day, you will feel more tired, and you will rest better. These daily physical activities also help in achieving glowing skin.

You can take advantage of the bath time to relax. The ideal scenario is to light some aromatic candles, turn off the lights and use some aromatic bath salts to help you release the stress of the day. You can make homemade aromatic bath salts by mixing coarse salt, food coloring, essential oils and tea bags or dried flowers. Once everything is mixed, it is necessary to let it dry a few hours on a tray. After the bath, the pores of the skin are more open, so it is essential to hydrate the entire body very well with a body lotion. With regularity in this schedule, you will get a smoother and more luminous skin.

The face mask is equally important. Make a mask for the face and the hair. For the face, make a clay-based mask to balance the oiliness and if your skin is on the drier side, make a nutritive one with fruits, honey, and yogurt. For the hair, use essential oils to nourish it and make it shine. You can apply heat to the hair so that the pores open up and the product penetrates better than usual.

Lastly, if you feel that your eyes are tired or puffy, you can use cotton disks soaked in green tea and let them rest on your eyes or directly use tea bags.

If you do not want to use a perfume, you can use a body cream that smells good.

Tips and Tricks for Discovering Paris

Tips and Tricks for Discovering Paris

Paris is the beating heart of Western civilization. Some people would claim that this honor belongs to London, but one can easily argue that, while London is indeed the heart of industrialization, Paris is the cultural center whence the traditional Western culture had come. Today, it stands like a gaudy monument to the aesthetic and architectural achievements that can hardly be compared to anything, or, for that matter, anywhere in the world. Every cosmopolitan globe-trotting traveler should visit this city at least once, and here are tips and tricks for discovering Paris.

Know the broad strokes

The city of Paris boasts countless museums and cultural hotspots, but it is the very city, the endless, intricate cobweb of streets, that represents the historical museum in and of itself. The city on the river Seine is, roughly speaking, divided into two gargantuan zones – Rive Gauche and Rive Droite, each beginning on the banks of this magnificent river and extending seemingly endlessly into the urban mist. The Right Bank, north of the river, used to be a zone reserved for aristocrats, while the left bank represents the Parisian heart of bohemia, where students and struggling artists used to dwell.

Today, the northern side is home to luxury shopping, alluring ateliers of artists and a melting pot of multicultural communities. Of course, it is not as simple as it used to be – the city has become appropriately larger over the centuries, so it is divided into roughly 20 neighborhoods that, once you look at the layout from a bird’s perspective, spiral clockwise. Curiously enough, this makes the shape of the city resemble a snail shell.

Sort out the priorities

As a newcomer to Paris, you definitely need to sort out your priorities when it comes to the landmarks you need to see. Now, before you even look at the map of the city and start deciding on where to go first, there are several attractions that should definitely top your list – the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame de Paris, The Louvre Museum, and the Champs-Élysées. After you see these four legendary locations/landmarks, your next set of destinations can be completely arbitrary and they are left to your imagination.

Introduce a comprehensive structure to your visit

The Paris is simply too big, overwhelming and rich in all things beautiful to be savored during a single visit. Without a proper touring “structure” to your visit, you’ll likely end up engulfed in chaos of uneven days. This is why it is absolutely crucial to introduce a comprehensive structure to your touring – which is why reliable and affordable Paris tours are so helpful. 

Walk around your neighborhood

Depending on where you are situated during your stay, the exploration and discovery of interesting places in your neighborhood can prove to be a truly surprising and delightful endeavor. Remember, there is hardly a single corner of Paris that doesn’t offer something utterly charming or interesting. Have a long walk around your neighborhood and see what surprises come your way.

Rely on alternative sources of inspiration

We live in a time when the only thing that separates us from endless information is the tips of our fingertips. Use your digital device and a local Wi-Fi access to cross-reference the matters that interest you with your immediate environment to find exactly what you want to see. There are countless alternate sources of inspiration that can turn your visit into a magical experience. For example, you can dig through Instagram accounts to discover Paris.

You can also direct your attention to numerous neat online guides to discover the best Paris has to offer without going through the hassle of listening to tour guides that are embroiled in a shouting contest with the traffic.

 

It is not a surprise to anyone that, once they set foot on the busy street of Paris, they find out how packed with tourists its sidewalks are. The city is a destination where rivers of people from every corner of the world coalesce and create a vibrant urban landscape that can only be rivaled by the streets of New York City and Hong Kong.

This is why a visit to its most legendary hotspots can be in equal measure mesmerizing and overwhelming, but if you feel as if the influx of impressions is overloading you, remember to turn around the less frequented corner and enter the rustic and idyllic alleyway that appears to be from a different place altogether. The city of Paris is filled with little oases of comfort and tranquility – you only need to seek them out, tips and tricks not needed.

How To Create An Unforgettable First Impression

How To Create An Unforgettable First Impression

If anyone ever tells you that first impressions don’t count, don’t believe them. In fact, studies show that if someone feels negatively about you on first meeting you, it’s incredibly hard to change their initial perception. And from job interviews, to new friends, to finding love, it’s making those positive connections that has the power to really change your life. Think of your initial meeting as laying the foundation for a future, deeper relationship – you need those foundations to be solid in order to build something great. You have, on average, just seven seconds in which to make your mark – so how do you ensure that the impression you’re creating is a positive one?

Be Present

 

We go through life half-distracted by the constant tug of our smartphones or even our own thoughts, but when meeting someone for the first time, it pays to make sure that you focus on them. One of the most compelling behaviours for this is eye contact – if we don’t make any because we’re distracted, or too shy, it’s very hard to create a positive impression. Human brains are wired to respond to the chemicals generated when we lock pupils – serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’, oxytocin which gives a sense of wellbeing and bonding, and feel-good chemicals dopamine and endorphins are all triggered by this simple, evolutionary response. So it really is crucial to sincerely meet someone’s eyes when you are first introduced. However, there’s definitely a balance to be struck. Make too much eye contact, or come across like you’re staring and the gesture will backfire – you’ll come across as either aggressive or creepy! A few seconds of eye contact followed by a natural gaze around at your surroundings is best. If you’re meeting several people, say your partners’ friends or a panel at a job interview, make sure that you share eye contact with everyone, interspersed with looking at the room around you.

Pay Attention To Details

 

Being well-presented is almost certainly a good way to win people over – there are a lot of snap judgements that get inferred from how you choose to present yourself. Rightly or wrongly, the speed and volume of information that is processed by the human brain when encountering someone new has evolved into a series of informational shortcuts, or judgements, that will form an unconscious bias about you based on stored information. And while it may be very true to say ‘Don’t judge a book by it’s cover’, unfortunately, that is exactly what we as human beings are wired to do. Make sure you cover off the details in any important situation – that your clothes are pressed and free of stains, your teeth are nice and white,  your hair is neat and you appear presentable. If you want to be memorable you could try a trick such as developing an outfit signature, like a colourful silk scarf, or even finding a signature scent such as a delicate rose perfume. People will begin to associate you with these attributes, and they can make you stand out in a good way.
