How the Right Vitamins can boost your health!

Our bodies rely on certain vitamins and minerals to keep going. Without them, we are sure to experience symptoms of fatigue, problems with digestion, as well as be more vulnerable to falling victim to nasty colds or the flu. The question is, which vitamins and minerals should you focus on replenishing, and why?

Vitamin B-12

B vitamins are essential in helping your body break down foods and boost energy. If you lack these, you are likely to feel lethargic and unmotivated. Many people who experience a lot of stress will require more vitamin B than the average person who lives a relatively low-stress existence. Vitamin B-12 is undoubtedly one of the most important B vitamins there is. It is responsible for replenishing the body’s blood and nerve cells, as well as for making DNA. You can find it in a wide variety of natural food sources, and it is especially high in meat.

Vegans and vegetarians can, therefore, become deficient in Vitamin B-12 quite easily and may be required to take a supplement. However, certain plant milks, soy products and breakfast cereals can help with B-12.

Vitamin C

As most are aware, a good amount of Vitamin C is the backbone of a healthy, well-functioning immune system. It is recommended that adults consume 90 – 2000mg a day in order to reap the maximum benefits of this potent vitamin. It is present in a number of different foods, most of which are acidic in nature, such as tomatoes and citrus fruits.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is generated naturally through sun exposure, so people who reside in areas that see a lot of snow or rainfall can become deficient in it relatively quickly. This is a dangerous thing because vitamin D is necessary for the body to properly absorb calcium for healthy bones. Signs of a vitamin D deficiency include aching joints, back pain, getting sick often, and hair loss. The good news is that if you are unable to get at least 15 minutes of sunshine on a daily basis, you can strive to eat more foods that are rich in vitamin D. These foods include egg yolks, fortified cereals, and fatty fish.

Zinc

Older adults and those who lead stressful lifestyles are more likely to be lacking in zinc, a mineral that is responsible for a healthy immune system and effective wound healing. When you have enough of it in your system, you are likely to remain healthy throughout the seasons, only falling ill on very rare occasions. Furthermore, if you sustain a wound or an injury, you are sure to bounce back faster. Zinc can be found in foods like oysters, pumpkin seeds, and beef.

Consider IV therapy

If ever you feel that you lack any of these vitamins or minerals, you can give yourself a boost with IV therapy. Companies like Reset IV Los Angeles specialize in sending a nurse straight to your door to administer the therapy. Plus, you can top up your IV bag with a range of essentials, including a multivitamin boost, biotin, and BCAA, to name a few. For some people, they are deficient due to genetics.

Here’s to a wealth of valuable vitamins and better health as a result. Be sure to look after yourself, especially in seasons where viruses are rampant.

Is the Bare Faced Trend going Extinct?

You see different makeup looks every day, ranging from show makeup to the more subtle–but clearly contoured daily look. It’s fun to experiment every so often, but when the unusual becomes the norm, are there still benefits to nailing the natural look?

Back to Basics

Skincare

It’s easy to load up on all the expensive foundation and powders, but none of them will mean anything if your skin is still not its best underneath. At the end of the day, when you go home to rest, you will take all of the makeup off and face your true self in the mirror. It would be great if you like what you see, wouldn’t it? That’s why the sales of moisturizer online and even of other beauty products in physical stores continue to grow; even though there might be more hype around theater-like looks, it’s what’s underneath that still matters to beauty experts.

Pollution-friendly

Carbon footprint

The whole world is going into a green revolution. While we’re working on reducing our carbon footprint, however, we still need to live in a world where pollution is an everyday problem. You can only escape it so much. There might be some measures you can take to protect yourself from the bulk of it, but your skin, which is the protective barrier of your muscles, is exposed to air and all the pollutants it carries. They may be invisible, but they are definitely far from harmless. Now, one might argue that thicker makeup means not exposing your skin to the pollutants, but think of it this way: that thick layer of makeup is not easily removed, and when they build up on the surface of your skin, they become a separate problem in the form of breakouts.

Bold Outfits are on the Rise

Outfits

Say what you want about the price of fashion, but one thing’s for sure: people love to dress up. Now, in fact, they are into conspicuous consumption. When they own a new item, everyone on their social media feed just has to know about it. What this means for makeup is a need for more muted looks because, well, bold outfits and even bolder makeup simply do not match. You need them to complement each other, and if one is already drawing all the attention, the other could do with a little step back.

Honestly, Rules Don’t Apply Anymore

It’s easy to write a list of do’s and don’ts when it comes to makeup, but if you’ve been to some of the most progressive cities in the world, you’ll notice a trend: people dress up however they want. It’s a great step forward for self-care and self-esteem empowerment, and it’s also a market in itself, but most importantly, it breaks the rules and molds that people used to live within. Gone are the days of you turning to beauty gurus to cop their look down to the finest lines. Now, if you can come up with your own look by yourself, even better.

The rise of influencer culture perhaps has a lot to do with the change in the way we do our makeup nowadays. But at the end of the day, it’s still about what makes you feel beautiful.

Six female celebrities with unique hobbies!

Every individual has a hobby that is either outspokenly known or discreetly kept in the pocket. Some people have a knack for creating art, playing a musical instrument, collecting aged keepsakes, or participating in sports. Hobbies are things often done in one’s free time; these are interests that bring forth sheer joy.

It may not look like it, but celebrities also attend to creative pursuits outside their regular occupation despite the strenuous schedule. Many of these famed personalities are just like everyone else. However, a few stand out more than others do. Have a look at which female celebrities have hobbies that go beyond the ordinary.

Eva Longoria: Shooting

Even today, when stereotypically feminine activities are persistently questioned and challenged, some people are still hesitant about the image of a woman with a gun. Most will shrug off this trace of gender normativity and continue to boldly claim their love for shooting.

In a 2006 interview by the Chicago Tribune, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria recalled her childhood growing up with guns. She noted that the experience helped her prepare for her role in The Sentinel movie. Longoria revealed that she loves shooting guns, a hobby of hers that makes her feel she is on vacation.

Want to try your hand at this? If you wish to get into this hobby, there are a lot of firing ranges where you can try shooting. With enough practice, you can already buy your own gear, such as handguards and front grips.

Paris Hilton: Herping

She is often associated with all things most girls do not have. Paris Hilton, as portrayed in media, is a breath of pink, with diamond-encrusted accessories and golden locks swinging back and forth to the tempo of her stilettos.

While the public may view her as a person whose heart is reserved only for dogs, she also secretly loves catching amphibians and reptiles, specifically, frogs. Recognized for being an animal activist, Hilton previously clarified her approach for capturing these little cold-blooded animals around her ranch, which she said is completely humane. She always makes sure to release them back into the wild after getting hold of these creatures.

Want to try your hand at this? While it is endearing to know about this side of Hilton, we do not recommend adopting this hobby. Perhaps, the better option is to volunteer at animal centers and shelters if you have a soft spot for big and small creatures.

Julia Roberts: Knitting

American actress Julia Roberts has the ideal hobby for passing slow hours on a movie set: knitting all possible forms, whether a beanie, a coaster, or even a scarf. Roberts is such a devoted knitter that she has even encouraged some of her fellow actors, like August: Osage County costar Julianne Nicholson, to take up knitting. Nicholson reveals that Roberts inspired her so much she was able to complete a sweater she had put down years before her convincing to try knitting again.

Want to try your hand at this? Unlike the rest listed here, trying this hobby is as easy as a snap of the fingers. Well, it is easy to get the self a crochet hook and a bundle of yarn. As for the process itself, it certainly takes getting used to.

Mila Kunis: Video Gaming

This may already be a giveaway, but Mila Kunis has always clung on to video games, which seems pretty common to pick up. However, she once exposed that her love for video games has led her to a full-scale obsession for the multiplayer-online-playing game World of Warcraft.

The American star also admits that her fans know her tendency to stay up late at night to level up all her characters, unbridling her inner nerd for long hours. While she tries to convince her friends to play with her, she says she doesn’t need to look far since the online world has thousands of players more than glad to join her.

Want to try your hand at this? Those who plan on playing World of Warcraft will likely see a world filled with one-handed swords, guns, and pole arms, among others. Knowing the uses of each weapon is important to survive in the game, so make sure to learn about every weapon available.

Azealia Banks: Witchcrafting


Image via Google

Again, most hobbies do not end up in the average pile; some reach an entirely different level. This is where Azealia Banks comes in. Even though she is already known for wandering a little beyond the ordinary, what she does in her free time is still shocking.

In 2016, the American rapper posted a video of her preparing the area where she performs witchcraft and sacrifices animals. The video was taken down later since the footage showed the way she cleaned a small room full of dried blood, feathers, and what were perhaps the remains of two dead chickens. Banks says that she faithfully observes brujeria, a Spanish word that means “witchcraft.”

Want to try your hand at this? Instead of sacrificing actual animals, people who want to experience Banks’s hobby can instead learn how to recite different kinds of adjurations, incantations, and other spells.

Angelina Jolie: Knife Handling

People are familiar with the Academy Award–winning actress’s knife skills in her films like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Tomb Raider, and Wanted. Her ability to handle this sharp tool does not stop here, as her love for knives has always been apparent when she was eleven or twelve years old.

Her younger version used to collect all kinds of knives, because it allowed her to dive deeper into history and tradition. Although the size of her collection is unspecified, this fact alone is impressive enough.

Want to try your hand at this? Individuals who are considering this hobby may find it intimidating at first, so it’s crucial to have the proper gear when throwing knives and such.

Review : PureBorn Nappies and Wet Wipes!

Hey friends,

Today I’m here with an exciting review. Who doesn’t love to work towards saving the environment?. I’m all for it and I love PureBorn because they are based on this very concept.

PureBorn

A little bit about PureBorn first – Founded by Hannah Curran, who is a UK based mom, this brand actually consists of a very small team. There is so much hard work, effort and research behind the conceptualization & launch of this eco friendly brand that I have nothing but respect for Hannah and her team. Here she is :

Hannah Curran

What is special about PureBorn – No trees are harmed in the making of any PureBorn product!. They are all plant based, using natural, sustainably resourced bamboo fibre. Bamboo, as you know, is grass and also an evergreen one.

Here is how the PureBorn nappy is built :

PureBorn

My Review

PureBorn

PureBorn baby

My son is 3.5 years old and weighs 14 kgs. So, I opted for number 5 in the range of nappies available. Number 5 stands for 11 – 18 kgs. The nappy is larger than a nappy of another brand falling under the same category. It’s print is beautiful. Got the leopard print one. My son especially loved it. Said he is a ‘tiger’ when he wore it. He is just learning the animals. Lol!. Here are some other (but not all) fun prints they have :

PureBorn prints

It is extremely soft and lightweight. What’s really interesting is the absorption power of it. It absorbs moisture like crazy. It’s insane really. That doesn’t mean I leave it on him for long hours just because it will absorb it all. But I had to mention it. It’s unlike any other brand I’ve used. It’s perfect for sensitive skin too. Once wet, the insides feel like cloth rather than a plasticy feel. It’s so gentle.

PureBorn

Now about their wet wipes, they come in two different packs. One the regular pack with 60 wipes in it and the other is the Travel Pack, which has 8 little packets in them, each containing 10 wet wipes.

Wet wipes

See how handy that is. The wet wipes have a very mild, pleasant scent. It is textured and stretchy (but not overly so). The best part is that there is no soapy residue on it like some other brands I’ve used in the past. The wipes are 99% aqua with Tea tree & coconut preservatives.

All PureBorn products are 100% organic, vegan, PETA certified, chemical free and crueltyfree. They come in biodegradable bags too. Also, whenever you buy a PureBorn product, know that you are contributing towards something more because 5% of their sales go to charity.

I highly recommend PureBorn to you because our babies are our lives, the apple of our eyes. We should give only the very best to them. They are so gentle and they deserve it. You can purchase all PureBorn products online or in major retailers like Lulu Hyper, Carrefour & Union Coop. They have a monthly subscription pack available online that helps you save 30% off and is delivered to your door, which is very convenient.

A quick note before I sign off for today. This is the latest news related to the brand. So I gotta share it.

PureBorn Bahrain

All prints of PureBorn are now available in Bahrain too, as only 2 prints used to be available. They are now also available in new retailers such as Lulu hypermarket and AlOsra as well as Hasan Mahmood supermarkets in addition to previous existing retailers. Moreover, the subscription model will also be launched very soon there.

Hope you liked reading my review. Please hit the share button if you did 🥰

Why it’s important to have a quarterly bathroom maintanence!

Your bathroom is probably the most underestimated room in your house. It may be a small room, but it plays an important part in your day-to-day life from your morning prep before work to that relaxing hot shower you take to unwind after a long day. In fact, the average person spends a total of one and a half years using the bathroom throughout a lifetime, a poll on 2,500 people found.

Upflush toilet

You need to pay more attention to your bathroom because of its role in your life and home, and this includes performing maintenance on a quarterly basis. Here are four reasons why it’s important to do this routine activity.

Prevent Accidents

Your bathroom may be smaller compared to the other rooms in your home, but it can actually be a dangerous place. In fact, 235,000 people aged fifteen years old and above end up in emergency rooms every year because of injuries they suffered in the bathroom, and 14 percent of those get hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The same study reported that the majority of bathroom accidents occur near or in the tub or shower. Common accidents in the bathroom include slipping on wet floors, falling, and tripping on broken tiles. By conducting bathroom maintenance on a quarterly basis, you can make timely repairs on broken fixtures, pipes, and wires that can potentially cause accidents. Regular checkups will also let you identify potential problem areas and make the necessary changes before it is too late.

Pro Tips:
● Install antislip mats in your tub, in the shower area, the space in front of your sink, and near the entrance of the bathroom.
● Immediately fix broken or loose tiles.
● Immediately repair leaks or broken pipes to prevent water stains and puddles from forming.
● If you have a toddler in the house, purchase a toilet seat that the child would be comfortable to use.

Fight Diseases

Mold and bacteria love to grow in moist and humid places, which makes bathrooms their ideal breeding ground. Bathrooms are home to bacteria like E.coli, streptococcus, salmonella, and Bacteroidaceae, and unsurprisingly, the toilet is a hive of germs, with 3.2 million bacteria found per square inch on average.

It’s important to perform daily or at most weekly cleanups for usual danger zones like the toilet, but in addition to routine maintenance, you also need to do a quarterly deep clean in all other areas of the bathroom. Deep cleaning targets hard-to-reach areas like grout, bathroom vents, and the showerhead as well as every inch of the tub, sink, and toilet. By scheduling quarterly deep-cleaning sessions, you prevent diseases from spreading and keep your family safe and healthy.

Pro Tips:
● Clean and seal your grout every quarter to prevent moisture and bacteria buildup.
● Eliminate calcium and mineral buildup from the showerhead by soaking it in white vinegar overnight before thoroughly scrubbing it with a toothbrush.
● Blast filthy and dusty exhaust fans with compressed air to thoroughly remove stubborn dirt and debris.

Save Money

Quarterly bathroom maintenance can help you stay on top of much-needed repairs and upgrades before it’s too late. Have you ever woken in the middle of the night to the sound of a leaky faucet? Broken pipes can leave unsightly water stains in your house, and they can be dangerous because their leaks can cause slips and falls.

Leaks also cost you money. On average, small leaks can cost homeowners twenty dollars every year while faucets and pipes with bigger damage could cost anywhere between sixty to two hundred dollars every year. That is hard-earned money you could have spent elsewhere if you had been paying more attention to your bathroom.

Pro Tips:

● To prevent blockage in your pipes, pour half a cup of baking soda followed by half a cup of vinegar, and then wash it down with boiling-hot water.
● Consider upgrading your toilet system to an upflush system, which features a built-in macerator that effectively shreds solid waste materials, thereby preventing clogs in your pipes.

Make Bathroom Time Enjoyable

If you have young kids, you know much of a struggle it can be to get them to take a bath. Children would much rather play and do something fun than be in the bathroom, especially if yours is a dirty, malfunctioning bathroom.

Regardless of whether you have kids or not, it’s important that you take care of your bathroom because you spend a considerable amount of time every day inside it. Conducting quarterly maintenance ensures that every fixture is in tip-top condition and ready to meet all your family’s needs. You don’t want to go to work late and frazzled because the shower suddenly stopped working.

Pro Tips:
● Make your bathroom a more fun and relaxing space by adding personal touches to it every quarter like ornamental plants and aromatic candles.
● Make bath time fun for your kids by buying toys that they can play with while in the bath like bubble machines and rubber ducks.

Biggest Wedding Day Mistakes & How to Avoid Them!

Weddings can simultaneously be one of the happiest and most stressful day of your life. However, with careful planning and awareness, you can mitigate a lot of the biggest wedding day mistakes that cast a shadow over your day.

Wedding pic

Here are some of the biggest wedding day mistakes and how you can avoid them.

Dress Doesn’t Fit

There are a surprising amount of brides that find that their dress doesn’t fit on the day of their wedding. There are a few things that cause this disaster.

First, improper planning leading to delays in the dress arriving. When the dress arrives right before the wedding, it doesn’t allow for time spent doing alterations and making sure everything fits as it should. This can be prevented by ordering the dress way in advance or shopping on Azazie.com to ensure a quick turnaround time.

Another mistake that brides make in the early days is buying the dress too small as a form of motivation to lose weight. If a bride decides she wants to lose weight for her wedding, it’s better to purchase the dress in her current size and have alterations made later. Stress plays a key role in weight management, and can thwart even the best efforts.

Delays

Delays in the schedule can not only cause undue stress for the bridal party, but they can also make the guests grumble and ruin the events. Delays are often caused by poor planning or unprofessional vendors.

To prevent delays, consider hiring a day-of coordinator to keep everyone on task. Not hiring a day-of coordinator is another wedding day mistake you should avoid! If you don’t have a day-of coordinator, ask a trusted family member or friend who is confident and organized to play the role. Yes, this job was made for your bossy aunt Susan.

Take time to vet your vendors beforehand. Read reviews and ensure that other brides who used the services didn’t have issues with tardiness or delays. Touch base with the vendors in the days leading up to the wedding to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Wedding pic

Terrible Vendors

To expand on the vendor issues, having a terrible DJ, photographer, caterer, etc. can have an impact on your wedding day that remains a sore spot even years later. Don’t cheap out on vendors or allow your friend who just started photography to pressure you into letting them take your photos.

Always read reviews and get recommendations. Your friend might take beautiful photos when the weather is right and they can have someone hold a pose. Your DJ friend might be great at putting music together but have no idea how to hook up to the system at your venue. The cheapest caterer you can find might give you all food poisoning. If you’re going to hire someone, do it right.

Allowing Family Drama to Ruin Your Day

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that grown adults can act like grown adults and be self-aware enough to not make your day about them.

Set firm boundaries and expectations for potential problem people early on and reiterate it in the days leading up to the wedding. Keep people with negative relationships seated separately and have someone run interference. Again, a day-of wedding coordinator is well-suited for this task.

By being proactive, you can prevent the issues that cause the biggest wedding day blunders. Speak your mind, plan ahead, and enjoy your big day.
