Boosting Body-Esteem

I was reading a new book I bought and I found this. I really like and thought in share it with others. Because life is so short and beautiful for be wasted thinking about tomorrow. Let’s do it now.

Here a few suggestions to make you feel better about yourself:

– Think about all the things you’ve promised yourself you’ll do when you have a better body. Pick one and do it today.

– Identify the kind of activity you love and do it today.

– Wear an outfit that compliments how you feel when you are doing your chosen activity.

– Focus on the details of your movements, such as how you feet touch lightly on the floor. Focus on the subtle motions of your face, arms, hips,legs,hands. Do it your way. Be joyful. Be graceful.

– Treat yourself with care and respect. Give yourself healthy food, exercises,pleasures, relaxation.

– Tell yourself ” I don’t need perfect body to be happy”

– Remind yourself ” i am whole, happy, and perfect as I am.”

– Detoxify yourself of anger, resentment, unhappiness. Leave the blame behind and take pleasure in yourself.

– Dress up your best features.

– Throw out clothes that don’t fit or flatter you.

– Take stock of your magnificent intellect, spirit, and creative abilities.

The most important thing you need to do is LOVE YOURSELF MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. Because everyone has a special beauty.


Make your own eye makeup remover

I am not a big fan of makeup. I know, I am a girl and I should love it, but I really not into makeup to much. First because I don’t know how to make any fancy make up when I use make up I look worse than without it. And second, because I don’t go to places where I need makeup. However, I do like to wear mascara often and I hate when I need to remove it before bed. It is definily a waste of my time and I hate  it.

This week, thinking about that and how many times I bought eye make up remover and never work so well plus I am often worried about how many chemical the eyes makeup remover  has and how bad are they for my eyes or skin. I saw  Jillee recipe in her blog and decided give it a try.

So here is what I used:

1 cup distilled water
1 1/2 Tablespoons baby shampoo (no tears)
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
A few drops of essential oil (optional)

Heat the water for about a minute in the microwave/ or pan(I used pan I don’t have microwave :(.  )…then add the shampoo and the solid coconut oil. The coconut oil become liquid in the warm water. Add a couple of drops of essential oil if you like. I didn’t add the essential oil in mine.

Here my eye with mascara:

My dirty cotton ball;

My eye clean:

It cleans easy and fast. One cotton ball per eye ( and my eyes are “giantescos”, my words for really BIG).

I am happy with the results.
