Making Magic Money Box

It has a been little weird for me. One day my colleague told me she dreamt about me, that I was making money boxes. Couple days latter my sister phoned me up and said she has been making  money boxes and she will send me a link how to do it! I was like WHAT?!!!?!?! It is like weirdest coincidence!!! Anyway, so I had to do it. The least thing I could do it's just give it a try! All you need to have is a box you like, some paper, little mirrors, candle and I guess a little creativity to decorate it to your liking:) My magic money box is very simple. It is how I liked it. This is the link where you can find all about making your own magic box. /http://reikirays.com/17007/magic-money-box/
And here is my own little treasure box.

On a Cold Autumn Day

Hello! I have been feeling a little cold today. Maybe it's because I am getting some sort of cold which has been going around. Quite few people got it at my work space. So I thought I will get myself warm and make some mulled vine. Which turned out amazingly! I did not have honey so I used 2 tbsp of golden sugar. I put couple carved small apples, one cinnamon stick and one satsuma and I heated it up and Volia! Amazing mulled vine! Definitely keeping cold at bay. Pickle watched me doing it all the way :)

DIY Experiment - Shampoo

Hey, so I found this amazing blog and I thought I will try out their DIY Shampoo. So this is how it went for me:) I needed a bottle where I could pour my shampoo in so I used an old whisky bottle witch I kept because it's pretty:) Luckily I had a bottle cork which I bought because it's pretty :) So shampoo ingredients were easy; cup of warm water, 1 tbsp of baking soda and 1 tbsp of corn flour to thicken the shampoo. I thought I will add 3 drops of black pepper essiansial oil and a 1 tsp of jojoba oil because it's good for the skin (maybe that's where I went wrong:) ) So I mixed it all together and I went to have a shower. I think it's more like a hair rinse rather than a wash because it was too liquidy to lather it into the skin and my hair felt bit too greasy during the wash (maybe that's where I went wrong, putting in jojoba oil). Yep I think I should of followed the recipe, however I think the recipe needs work. I might try things out with it in the future see what I can do with it :) And as for me I am going to wash my hair again :))

The Easiest and Quickest Facial Cleansing Routine Under 5 minutes

This cleansing routine is perfect for me it's so easy to keep my skin healthy naturally. To be honest  I don't use foundation unless I am going out. So these two amazing very gentle products keep my skin in good condition. As you know I like natural products and I found they work for me. They are totally harmless so I don't need to use other products to keep my skin healthy. So this is what I do. In the morning shower I would wash my face with water, tap it dry gently with a towel once I am out of shower. Then I put some WELEDA gentle cleansing milk on a cotton pad and gently wipe my face and my jaw line and neck. Wait a minute or two do something else let the milk properly soak into the skin. (My trick is before I apply anything else any product I use I take breaks in between the products to let them do their job).  So after a short break I put my balancing face cream from Hand Made Naturals. And Volia!!! At that point my skin is glowing I love how it evens out my skin tone. My face skin feels and looks good! I don't feel the need for using tonic after or anything else. I have been using this skin cream for few years now and it's amazing!!!  I have no plans to stop using it anytime soon. The cleansing milk I have been using for half a year now and I love it. I think these two products really compliments each other. Cleansing milk can be used for removing make up as well but I think it's little wasteful of such good product so to remove make up, I use something else and after that I use the cleansing milk.:)

Letter for all man and woman who are body consious

We all watch the same TV, read the magazines, hear how others feels about their bodies. We all have the ideal body image and I am pretty sure we all have very different image from anybody else. I got myself into a situation on a very girly night out that for some reason talk turned to body image. One was feeling too skinny, could not do anything about it. Another one was sucking in her tummy when she sees her man. Then another felt she had too small boobies, another liked her own but wanted them bigger. Bigger girls were saying that there is nothing wrong with slimmer girls that they don't have to deal with weight problems. So what I am saying here every single girl had something to say about their body. I am sure you know what I am talking about, I am sure most people could say something that they don't like about their body. So I was standing there quietly with nothing to say wrong about my own body nothing at all, not a single complaint. And I was looking at these girls and I could not see anything wrong with them - yes, I could see they all looked different, some slimmer, some bigger but that's OK. I am not a narcissistic person because I like my own body, it's far from perfect but it's OK with me. I learned how to accept the way it is. My ideal body is definitely not my own but I am happy with what I got and I think a lot of people need to learn to accept how they look and what they got. Unless it is a health issue and needs treating that's completely different story. I kind of felt sad that people feel so conscious about their bodies and waste so much energy judging body parts instead in concentrating on feeling good, feeling healthy, staying active and enjoying life! With this letter I hope to put some sense in some people with being happy with what they have because no one cares as much as we do. So the biggest judge we are for yourself. So STOP now and be happy, enjoy yourself, none of us are perfect... so whats the point of being body conscious? I am not encouraging to be unhealthy in any way. Keep active, eat right and be happy!

Good luck to you all!

I hope I was clear in what I was trying to say here.
