Drugstore Makeup Dupes

Hey guys,

We can all appreciate a good bargain, especially when we’re getting something cheap that probably should be expensive. This is why beauty dupes are SO popular. Why spend $35 on one piece of makeup if you could spend $5 on something that works just as well AND looks exactly the same? Who wouldn’t want to do that? Makeup is so expensive, and since it’s something you need to buy fairly regularly, it’s good to save when you can.

But still, makeup dupes can be really great sometimes. We don’t always have the money to splurge on our favorite products, so why not get cheaper ones that work almost as well? Here are 6 amazing makeup beauty dupes that will make you want to get to the drugstore ASAP.

- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil Vs. Rimmel Scandal eye water proof Kohl eyeliner

$20  Vs.  $4.99
I don't know why anyone could buy an eyeliner and pay $20 for it, when you can get the same effect for much less.
- Benefit Hoola Bronzer Vs. NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny.
$28  Vs.  $2.99
Having a nice, matte, non-orange in a little hard to find in the drugstore. Hoola is great for bronzing and light contouring, and this NYC bronzer is so darn similar. The only thing, this specific bronzer is hard to find, so keep an eye out for it.
- MAC Satin Taupe eye shadow Vs. Wet 'N Wild single eye shadow in "Nutty".
$16  Vs.  $0.99
Satin Taupe from MAC is one of those universally shadows that are flattering on everyone, but the Wet 'N Wild is actually the same, my only complain about the packaging being cheap, and the shadow breaks easily because of it, but it's only $0.99 so I will forgive them for it.
- Beauty Blender Vs. Real Technique Miracle complexion sponge.
$20.00  Vs.  $5.99
Okay, I will say that this is not an exact dupe by any means. But I'm mentioning this for a cheaper alternative for the beauty blender.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Vs. NYX Micro Brow Pencil.
$21  Vs.  $9.99
The NYX Pencil is the closest I've found to the Anastasia Beverly Brow Wiz.
- Smashbox Photo finish foundation Primer Vs. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore eraser Primer.
$ 36  Vs.  $5.99

This is another example where I wonder why would you spend  $36 on a primer. I honestly can't find a difference between the two.
Which of these dupes have you tried before? Do you think any of them don’t work? What’s your favorite makeup brand? Tell me in the comments!

Vitamins. Their importance and how to get them?

Hey guys,
I thought I would give you some information about Vitamins, sources and benefits.
Hope you'll find it beneficial.

Vitamin A (Retinol)
liver and fish oils, milk and eggs. Most dietary provitamin A comes from leafy green vegetables, orange and yellow vegetables, tomato products, fruits, and some vegetable oils 
It is essential to the formation of visual purple in the retina, which allows vision in dim light. It has antioxidant properties, which means it protects cells from the daily toxic damage of oxidation, provides immune support and fights inflammation.
Vitamin C
bell peppers, dark leafy greens, kiwifruit, broccoli, berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, peas, and papayas. 
Vitamin C helps protect cells and keep them healthy, and It is involved in the production of collagen, which maintains healthy connective tissues like the skin, bones and blood vessels. It helps with wound healing, and it helps with the absorbtion of iron.
Vitamin D

How to stay motivated to lose weight

Hey guys,

Feel like you're falling behind in your fitness goals? Here are some expert tips for staying motivated and committed to your weight-loss plan
1. See it through
Making the decision to live healthier is the first step, but you won't ever see results if you give up too soon. Whether you've hit a plateau in your weight-loss or just can't find the motivation to get to the gym, here's how to tweak your workout philosophy and get back on track to meeting your goals.

2. Know your goals

 In order to meet your goals, make sure they're SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely).

Asking yourself the following questions when setting your goals for weight training:
• How do you want your physique to look?
• What are your reasons for weight training?
• How much time do you have to dedicate to this process?

3. Be prepared
With a hectic schedule, you may not always be able to plan and pack your meals ahead of time.

For those times when you do eat out, choose the healthier options. In order to ensure you don't exceed your daily caloric needs, check the nutritional information of a meal before ordering it, piling on the veggies, choosing foods that are fresh, steamed, baked or roasted over deep fried or breaded and limiting your drink to water.
4. Overcame obstacles

It's inevitable that you'll encounter challenges along your weight-loss journey.

Here are some tips for overcoming the most common barriers:
• Motivation: Create a buddy system
• Time Management: Plan your workouts for first thing in the morning
• Family: Find ways to incorporate your children
• Financial: Find free things you can do outdoors, or go for a swim at the local pool for a small fee
• Making you a priority: State your schedule and plans to your family so everyone knows that's your exclusive time. And stand your ground!

5. See how far you've come

Assessing your progress since you first began will help you stay motivated and strive for continued success.

Here are some tips for choosing—and sticking to—a training program that's right for you:
• Do what you enjoy. You're more likely to stick with a workout if you get some enjoyment out of the activity.
• Choose a couple of goals to focus on. (Choose only a couple of training parameters.) Don't overwhelm yourself with trying to fix everything at once.
• Begin slowly. You'll only get discouraged if you can't maintain that initial level of intensity.
The power of visualization is a fitness technique commonly used among professional athletes and sports teams.

Here are three steps to visualizing weight-loss success:
• Clearly set your goals
• Think positively
• Quietly visualize

Hope you found them helpful!!

The world of cheeses

Hey guys,

Let's talk CHESSE!!

Cheeses is a romantic. It adores anything with its vicinity. It gives and receives the taste od appreciation and astonishes us with its personality and infinite possibilities.

Classification of cheeses:

There are several types of cheese, which are grouped or classified according to criteria such as length of ageing, texture, methods of making, fat content, animal milk, country or region of origin, etc. The method most commonly and traditionally used is based on moisture content, which is then further narrowed down by fat content and curing or ripening methods.

  • Fresh cheese

Fresh cheeses are coagulated under the action of lactic acid fermentation in the milk instead of adding rennet. While they are drained after formation of the curd, they are neither ripened nor fermented. Fresh cheeses are mainly used in baking and desserts, plain or flavored with vegetables, fruits, herbs or spices.

Mozzarella Cheese - Campania - Italy

Made with the milk of water buffalo or cows.
The curds are heated in warm water and stretched by hand before being rolled into moist balls. Mozzarella is prized for its texture and mild creamy flavor. 

Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is a fresh cheese curd product with a mild flavor.
The curd is washed to remove the acidity and leave a sweet taste. It is made from different types of milk with different fat levels. The term 'Cottage cheese' is believed to have originated because the cheese was generally made in cottages from milk leftovers, after making butter, it is low in fat and grainy in texture and works well as a spread.

Ricotta Cheese - Italy

Ricotta cheese is an Italian cheese made from sheep, cow, goat, or Italian water buffalo milk left over from the production of cheese. It's low in fat and high in protein.
Traditionally Italian fresh ricotta is smoother than cottage cheese and with granular, mildly sweet taste. Good Ricotta is firm, not solid and consists of a mass of fine, moist and delicate grains.

Feta cheese - Greece

It's made with at least 70% sheep's milk. Tangy and mist, feta can range from completely crumbled to moderately creamy. Feta is solid, but crumbly with some fissures. Pure white, it has a milky fresh acidity.

  • Soft and semi-soft cheeses:

Soft cheese are ripened for a relatively short period of time before being drained and turned into molds without being pressed or cooked. They have a moisture content of 50% to 60% and their fat content represents 20% to 26% of the cheese's weight. They develop at soft rind that can be more or less satiny and are usually eaten with bread, since they tend to lose a lot of flavor when heated.

Edam - Netherlands

Made from cow's milk, it comes in a pressed shaped of ball covered with distinctive red wax. Edam is usually consumed young, when the texture is elastic and flavor is smooth, sweet and nutty.
It has a significantly low (28%)
fat-content which contributes to its soft texture.
Black-wax coating means that Edam has been matured for at least 17 weeks.

Brie cheese - France

A soft cow's milk cheese named after Brie. It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under a rind of white mold. The rind is eaten with the cheese.

Camembert Cheese - France

A creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese. Smaller and slightly firmer than Brie. The rind is eaten with the cheese.
The fresh Camembert cheese is bland, hard and crumbly in texture. Young Camembert has a milky and sweet taste. It has a rich, buttery flavor. The rind is bloomy white caused by a white fungus.

  • Hard / Firm and semi-hard Cheeses:

Semi hard cheeses are uncooked pressed cheeses that are dense and usually pale yellow color. Firm cheeses are cheeses that have been cooked and pressed. The curd is heated for an hour is order to make it more concentrated, which, upon pressing, products a more compact cheese. Their texture is usually firm, although some hard cheeses, like Parmesan and Romano, may have a rather granular texture.

Parmigiano Reggiano Parmesan - Italy

Strong-smelling with a grainy texture and pale yellow color, solid in rounds or grated. The only additive is salt. It's named after the production areas, which comprise the Provinces of Parma and Reggio situated both in Emilia Romagna in Italy,  where Parmesan cheese is produced outside these legally protected provinces, the production is only 'Parmesan'.

Cheddar - UK

Made from cow's milk with a pale-yellow-to-off-white color depending on the season and cattle feed.

Orange cheddar is colored with annatto, a natural dye, depending on the length of aging and their origin. The best English cheddar is matured for a minimum of nine months.

Gouda - Netherlands

Made from cow's milk, it's round with a very smooth, yellow, waxed rind. The flavor is sweet and fruity. Matured Gouda (18 months plus) is coated in a black wax, which provides a stark contrast
to the deep yellow interior.

Kashkaval - Bulgaria & Romania

Made from Cow's milk, also known as Kashkaval vitosha while a variation made from ewe's milk is called Kashkaval Balkan. Kashkaval preslav is the name of the cheese made from both milks. It is aged for six month during which it develops a piquant, spicy and somewhat salty taste with a slight hint of olive oil.

Blue-veined cheese

Blue-veined cheeses or blue cheeses are neither cooked nor pressed; the curd is inoculated with a species of blue-green mold , which is injected into the cheese by means of long needles.

Things you need to know when you want to start your blog

Hey guys,

Today's post is all about starting a new blog and what you need to know to lead a successful business.

1. Choose your blog name

Coming up with a name for your blog is actually way harder than it sounds. You need something short and snappy that will resonate with your readers and make sense based on the content you plan to produce.
Make sure your name is available on all social media sites and the blogging platform you want to use.

2. Learn basic analytics.

How are you going to know whether people are visiting your blog and what they’re clicking on if you don’t know how to look up your stats? Google Analytics is the best free platform to check your blog’s success. The main number you want to look at is “Unique Visitors,” which shows how many new people visit your site in a given timeframe. Of course, it’ll probably just be your friends and family reading your blog to start, but with time and effort that number could really grow.

3. Reply to your comments!

You wouldn’t ignore someone who spoke to you in real life, so take the time to reply to every comment on your blog and your social media accounts. This makes readers feel validated, and it fosters a happy, inclusive online community. Plus, it’ll make them like you, which keeps ’em coming back (and, hopefully, sharing content from your site.)

4. Be consistent. 

Be consistent with how often you post. Most blogging hosts allow you to schedule posts for a certain time, so you can make a point of posting every day at 9 a.m. This can help build a loyal audience who know when to look for your new posts.

5. Use keywords in your posts. 

Using keywords is a great way to boost your ranking on search engines like Google. A cheap and easy way to work out what keywords you should be including in your post, use Google Keyword Planner. This will tell you the words and phrases people are actually searching for, and how often per month they’re being searched.

Start a blogging calendar. 

Plan your posts in advance using a blogging calendar. At the beginning of each month, pencil in any major events you want to cover Fashion Week, food festivals, holidays, or whatever then, pencil in the stories you’re planning on creating for each day. It’s a good idea to also keep an ideas log, where you can jot down any posts that aren’t timely, but you’d like to create at some point.

I hope you found these tips helpful and handy, keep them in your mind the next time you think of creating your own or posting a new topic.

How to help your husband with his anger?

Hey guys,

Today's topic is all about dealing with angry husbands. Marriage is no walk in the park, and everyone who's about to get married should expect the worse, when you meet someone they'll try to show you their best side, there is a hidden side you never knew about, so be ready.

More than anything, your husband needs to know that you’re on his side, that you’re not against him. You need to communicate, more than you probably think necessary, that you accept him and love him, even though you may not be satisfied with some of his behaviors or responses. Separate the actions from the man; affirm the man. His search for peace may begin sooner if he knows that you’re satisfied with him and willing to walk through the steps of healing.
  • Be His Friend, Not His Mother

 He needs a friend who’ll treat him, and insist on being treated by him, as an equal. He needs a friend who’ll gladly share life’s responsibilities with him but not live his life for him, someone who’ll encourage him in his problem solving but not solve all of his problems for him.
If you find yourself playing a mothering role to the man in your life, he will never fully deal with the causes and crisis of his anger. The scared little boy will whine and fuss until you make it all better. You can transition from mother to friend in his life by lovingly placing in his hands those responsibilities and problems that he should deal with.

  • Appreciate Him; Don’t Nag Him

It’s estimated that upwards of 90 percent of men today are unhappy and angry in their jobs to some degree. Most of them feel fortunate to be working, but they often languish in their dead-end jobs

 Nagging him to buck for promotions or beg for raises may only intensify his anger. Bugging him for a bigger house or newer car will only deepen his frustration that he has no more control at home than he has on the job. But if you become a wellspring of appreciation for the work that he does and the living he provides, you will lift some of the pressure from his life. Find many ways to say, “I appreciate that you work hard at your job and that you hang in there even when it’s frustrating and tough. I couldn’t love you more if you owned the whole company.”

  • Affirm Him; Don’t Criticize Him

If your man is struggling with being locked into a job that’s distasteful to him, you can ease his struggle by affirming him for who he is and what he does. Compliment him for the character qualities he exercises (or needs to exercise) in his job: patience, perseverance, determination, creativity, etc. In everything you say and do, let him know that he’s the best taco maker (or pump jockey, accountant, construction worker, sanitation engineer, etc.) in the world. Appreciate him for the effort.

  • Give Him Space; Don’t Crowd Him

Most of us don’t like to be pushed, especially men. It’s an affront to their struggling masculinity and only serves to exacerbate their anger. They feel intimidated because their wives can’t accept them the way they are. They feel inferior in comparison to the ideal man their wives are badgering them to become.

Give your husband plenty of room. Show him that you’re concerned about him and that you love him. Let him know that you’re available to listen to him and talk to him. Then back off to pray and wait. Trust God to work for your man’s good in the situation. Allow him to use “the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit” (1 Peter 3:4) in you to encourage and help him.

  • Give Him Time; Don’t Rush Him

We live in an age of instant gratification. We can travel thousands of miles in hours; we can transact business in seconds with our high-speed computers, cell phones, and cable shopping channels. We hate to wait. This subconscious urgency we all share for fast results may get in the way, however, when it comes to the process of helping a man defuse his anger. Change doesn’t take place overnight. It may take your husband weeks, months, or years to fully heal from the causes and results of anger in his life.

  • Hold Him Responsible; Don’t Be Co-dependent

If your husband’s anger gets him into trouble in any way, you are not responsible to cover for him or take the rap for him. Doing so only allows the problem to continue; it never stops the problem. Only when we allow someone to face the consequences of his behavior will he begin to see that he’s responsible for making changes in the way he behaves.

  • Give to Him; Don’t Withhold from Him

If your husband is in the process of dealing with expressions of anger that have been hurtful to you in some way, you may be tempted to say something like, “Once you get your act together, then I’ll start being the wife I should be.” You may feel like withholding affection or sex from him until he deserves it. You may feel like asking him to move out until he has better control of his temper or habits. Or he may have troubled you so much that you’re ready to give up.

While there are a few occasions when a temporary separation may be necessary (such as when his uncontrolled rage is endangering you or the children), you can probably be more helpful to your man’s healing by staying with him. Love, forgiveness, and acceptance are qualities to be given freely, not to be held hostage for ransom. He needs your friendship, not your judgment.
God will use your openness, kindness, and willingness to go the second mile to aid in his healing.

What are your ways of dealing with your angry husband?

The story of Valentine

Hey guys,

Today's story is somehow different because it's historical, true, and inspiring.

"The story of Valentine's Day begins in the third century with an oppressive Roman emperor and a humble Christian Martyr.   The emperor was Claudius II.   The Christian was Valentinus.
Claudius had ordered all Romans to worship twelve gods, and had made it a crime punishable by death to associate with Christians.   But Valentinus was dedicated to the ideals of Christ; not even the threat of death could keep him from practicing his beliefs.   He was arrested and imprisoned.

During the last weeks of Valentinus's life a remarkable thing happened.   Seeing that he was a man of learning, the jailer asked whether his daughter, Julia, might be brought to Valentinus for lessons.  

She had been blind since birth.   Julia was a pretty young girl with a quick mind.   Valentinus read stories of Rome's history to her.   He described the world of nature to her.   He taught her arithmetic and told her about God.  She saw the world through his eyes, trusted his wisdom, and found comfort in his quiet strength.

"Valentinus, does God really hear our prayers?" Julia asked one day.

"Yes, my child, He hears each one."

"Do you know what I pray for every morning and every night?  I pray that I might see.   I want so much to see everything you've told me about!"

"God does what is best for us if we will only believe in Him," Valentinus said.

"Oh, Valentinus, I do believe! I do!"  She knelt and grasped his hand.

They sat quietly together, each praying.   Suddenly there was a brilliant light in the prison cell.   Radiant, Julia screamed, "Valentinus, I can see!  I can see!"

"Praise be to God!"  Valentinus exclaimed, and he knelt in prayer.

On the eve of his death Valentinus wrote a last note to Julia, urging her to stay close to God.   He signed it, "From your Valentine."  His sentence was carried out the next day, February 14, 270 A.D., near a gate that was later named Porta Valentini in his memory.   He was buried at what is now the
Church of Praxedes in Rome.   It is said that Julia planted a pink-blossomed almond tree near his grave.   Today, the almond tree remains a symbol of abiding love and friendship.   On each February 14, Saint Valentine's Day, messages of affection, love, and devotion are exchanged around the world."
I hope this story has inspired you to love and give and wait for nothing in return.
Who's your valentine this year?

Eggplant and goat cheese Pizza

Hey guys,


Today’s recipe is perfcet for those in-between season days: it’s great for a sunny, hot day (fresh, flavourful veggies! Goat cheese! Basil! Balsamic!) but also great on a cold fall day (warm, comforting, doughy pizza goodness). I make this pizza year round and it’s always one of my favourites.

Eggplant and  goat cheese pizza, yummy!!

The pizza dough is very simple, and this is my favorite recipe, but you're free to use your own.

Dough: (makes two 12-inch pizzas)
  • 2¼ tsp instant yeast
  • 1⅓ cup warm water
  • 3¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 small eggplant, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 70g goat cheese
  • Balsamic vinaigrette, to taste
  • A dash of red chili flakes (optional)
  • Fresh basil, chopped 

  1. To make dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine yeast and water and let sit until frothy, about 5 minutes. Add in flour, olive oil, salt, sugar and Italian seasoning, and mix on low speed until a dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 8 minutes. Dough should be tacky yet elastic. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and let sit until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Place red pepper and eggplant slices on two parchment-lined baking sheets. Lightly oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste, and bake for 15-20 minutes until softened. Remove from oven and increase temperature to 450°. Place a pizza stone in the oven while it's heating up.
  3. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and punch down. Split the dough in half, covering and storing one half in the fridge (unless you're making two pizzas, as I always do). Remove pizza stone from oven; roll dough into a 12-inch circle and transfer to pizza stone.
  4. Spread pizza sauce over the dough, add roasted red peppers and eggplant, crumble on goat cheese and top with a few drizzles of balsamic vinaigrette. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden. Slice, top with fresh basil, and serve
The dough recipe used here yields two 12-inch pizzas. When I make it I either use both and make two pizzas, or cover and store one round in the freezer until a later date.
Cover the pizza dough with the sauce, roasted veggies, goat cheese and balsamic and bake on a preheated pizza stone until the crust is brown and crispy, then remove from the oven and top with freshly cut basil. So easy, so tasty, there’s no wonder why this is a regular meal in my house!
What is your favorite pizza toppings?

How to stop the Procrastination?

Hey guys,

Today's motivation is all about stopping the procrastination. Just get up and start working.

As a human it's normal to lose the well to keep on doing the things you've been doing everyday, so I'm here to give you ways to help you find your own motivation and stop the stalling.

You need to be your own creator of life, find what makes you feel alive and happy, where is your joy in life and pursuit it.

  1.  Always do more than what you're told to.
Remind yourself that there’s always more to be done than can be done. Then ask yourself if you’re getting the right things done.

      2. Try new things.

Find new thing that will interest you and help you find inspiration.

       3. Teach others what you know.

There is no greater joy than helping others and share the knowledge, ask someone to help you complete the task, and make your intentions public. This will add pressure, but for some of us, avoiding embarrassment is the mightiest motivators.

       4. Make work into play and vise versa, and motivate yourself.

Positive reinforcement is the most effective means of motivating yourself. Give yourself a treat to look forward to as a reward for buckling down on your to-do list; go see a movie, eat a chocolate bar, go out with a friend, whatever it is that will motivate you.

       5. Take breaks.

If you can’t seem to focus and are working half-heartedly at your tasks, give yourself a brief break. Set a timer for ten minutes, and take a nap, read a book, or call your friend. Do whatever it is you’ve been daydreaming about so that the temptation is removed once you get back to work. Just be sure to follow through with your deadline rather than ignoring it when your alarm finally goes off.

       6. Create a to-do list.

make yourself an old fashioned to-do list with check boxes and everything. List everything, big and small, that you have to do for your entire day; break big activities into smaller bits if necessary. Then, as you work through your day, check off each of the items on your list. You will feel a growing sense of pride as you visually monitor your ever-diminishing list of projects.

       7. Always be creative.

Many creative endeavors are throttled by mental blocks and distractions, but there is always a way to get past them. Find your ways to be creative and let the juices flowing.

       8. Hang out with people who inspire you to take action.

I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behaviors.

       9. Get a grip and just do it.

At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing, planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen.

For many of us, procrastination comes from an overload of obligations. Our ability to say “no” to things that aren’t really moving us towards our goals is a tough skill to learn, but since it becomes impossible to tackle difficult tasks when we’re suffocating under a bunch of meaningless obligations, it’s necessary that we acquire it, and acting smart.

What do you do to stop the procrastination?

Sunday's story: A girl hugged my husband

Hey guy,

Today is Sunday and it's that day of the week where I tell you a story that happened to me, a real story.

One day we went out to a pub downtown with some friends, and we were having so much fun, drinking, laughing and playing around, suddenly a cute girl came to our table and hugged one of our friends who worked as a flight attendant, so we thought he knew her or something.

Then she asked another friend of ours who is married "Do you want some positive energy?" - She asked. He didn't understand what she meant, so he was like "Sorry, what do you mean?"

His wife was giving the poor girl the looks, she wanted to kill her. Anyways, the girl wanted to hug our friend and give him some positive energy.

Our friend said "No...No, I don't want anything from you!!"

So the girl went to the table next to us and asked them the same. We knew then that she was sooo drunk she wasn't aware of what she was doing.

I called for her, when she came she asked my husband if he wanted some positive energy, Enad said "Noooo, go away!!" he was afraid that I would be jealous or mad or something. I was Okay with it of course, She came and hugged me and my husband and another friend of ours and left.

Everyone was like" How did you let him hug her?" Well, first she was cute, and she had a very nice hug, so why not.

Believe it or not, when she left everyone was feeling positive and happy.

We had a very nice and fun night, and drank a lot and decided to go home. We were waiting for the valet to bring our car, the same girl was giving positive energy and free hugs to the cars brought by the valet guys, it was hilarious. Till this day we still bring that girl up whenever we wanted to laugh.

So if some girl wanted to give your husband free hugs let her, everyone will feel good about it.

Office lookbook

Hey ladies,

If you work at an office you know the struggle to choose an outfit everyday that doesn't break the code... Tell me about it.

So I would love to help you with a few office outfit ideas and tips to do to stay fashionable and stay away from boring.

1. The classic look never grows old.

The classic office outfit is a great idea when you don't have the time or the energy to put an amazing outfit, so think classic, just put a little twist on it. Enjoy the colors that your closet has to offer.

A colorful blazer would be a great idea.

2. Simple and feminine.

Think simple, that's the rule of thumb. You're going to work, you're outfit has to be comfortable and not restricting.

Flats and pants are so adorable and feminine, with a simple cute top and you have a simple and great range of outfits that you can pull out of your closet effortlessly.

3. The dress.

Dresses are classical office outfit ideas, you just need to pick the right dress, a knee length dress or with short dresses a dark pair of leggings underneath will do the trick, and remember play with color and don't be shy to experiment.

4. Denim is OKAY.

The know how is a powerful tool, what works with what and how to put an office-friendly outfit together is very important. Go for a denim pencil skirt with a cute blazer, or a denim jeans with a denim vest and a white button up, double denim is fashionable too.

5. The casual look.

You can rock the casual look to work you know!! You just need to know what to choose. A cute top and flats, and if your top is kind of short wear a long tank top under it with a cute color that match the scheme and you're good to go.

6. Black on black.

You can never go wrong with an all-black outfit. Try to chose the same shade of black all around and enjoy it, there is nothing much to say.

Finally remember your closet has a great potential, you just need to work out your fashion skills. A great concept of putting outfits together is "Shopping your closet" it means that you need to go deep to the back of your closet to find the top that you never wore or that pants you only wore once and try to incorporate them with pieces you love to wear all the time, another great way to change up the look of an outfit is accessories, invest in nice statement pieces like necklaces and pairs of earing.

Another tip is to look for inspiration, an amazing source of inspiration is

Homs, under the rubble... Till when?

Hey guys,

Before I start I need to put a disclaimer out there, there will be very harsh and graphic photos of Homs, Syria at the end of this blog, so please if your heart isn't strong enough don't keep on reading.

So it's the fifth anniversary of what they called the Arabic Spring. It all started in the late 2010 when the Arabic world started to speak out, and fight their way to freedom of choice. Some survived and some didn't, but all around we all lost something valuable.

Then ISIS came out to the picture, and shattered every stereotype image we had before on terrorism and sent it to hell... A new era of insanity have emerged, and the sight of blood became a normal thing around here, we lost our humanity and became monsters...

I used to have a very soft heart and suddenly I'm not the same I used to be.

The only losers were the people.

That's a very hard thing to say. Millions were evacuated, hundreds of thousands are refugees around the globe, and much more where killed for no reason only for being vulnerable and week and the only weapon they had was faith to fight the big powers.

Iraq and Syria were under the fire of the mighty powers of the great big world day and night for the past five years non stop, cities were destroyed to the ground, families vanished and everything we used to know is never the same.

I know this may be harsh to you but it all came out from the heart, and I hope it will fall in the hearts of you as well.

We have heard and seen enough, and we can't take it anymore. We became the amusement and the new favorite toy of the big powers and it doesn't feel good. It is a crazy battle field were America and it's allies, and Russia and it's allies have a big space to impose their control, and show off their new weapons. It's a gameplay, nothing more.

If the war on Syria continued for a year or so Bashar Al Assad will have no one to rule any more, and it's just sad, so sad and heart breaking. STOP IT!!

Please pray for those who have been evicted and expelled from their homes and homeland, pray for the souls of those who have been murdered with cold blood and pure cruelty, and for those who have fallen victims to the greater and mighty powers of  evil.

Again please pardon the cruelty of the images you're about to see, it is just the truth, what happens to humans, people, poor souls here. Keep them in your prayers and pray for the big powers that move this puppet show to put some sense back in their hearts and minds and stop this.

My final words WAKE UP WORLD.

Tell me your thoughts down below.
