Wittere tanden met oilpulling

0 reacties
 
oil pulling and it's benefits 
(Look down for English)

'Oil pulling" ofwel olie laten intrekken is een techniek om wittere tanden te krijgen. 
Het bestaat blijkbaar al ja-ren maar staat nu meer en meer in de belangstelling. Ik ken het van Australische facebook-vrienden die geobsedeerd zijn door cocosolie. Dit 'systeem' is zo eenvoudig dat ik het raar vind dat ik het niet eerder weet! Een lepel olie nemen en een 20-tal minuten in je mond houden. Daar kan toch niets verkeerd aan zijn? 

Noot: SLIK HET NIET IN. De bedoeling is dat je het olie-goedje uit je mond gaat met alle slechte stoffen. Als je timer gaat spuw je het weg én bye bye bacteriën.

De voordelen:
- wittere tanden;
- versterking van tanden;
- helpt tegen een slechte adam;
- goed bij hoofdpijn! (én hangovers);
- maakt je sinussen vrij;
- algemene body-detox;
- ... .

Mijn ervaring... Wel ik moet eerlijk zijn ik kon het geen 20 minuten in mijn mond houden. Het schijnt dat je met een thee-lepel moet beginnen, en dan na weken kunt overstappen naar een eet-lepel. Ik ben gelijk begonnen met een EETlepel en heb het maar een 7-tal minuten binnen kunnen houden. Ik vond het ook moeilijk om niet te slikken en door mijn neus te ademen. 
Resultaat: mijn tanden voelden properder aan leken ook witter. Ik weet niet dat dit nu mentaal is of het echt geholpen heeft maar ik ga het ZEKER nog eens proberen. Hopelijk kan ik het dan langer volhouden. 

Het is zo simpel dat je het zelf maar eens moet uitproberen, dit met 100% cocosolie of sesamolie. 
Waar kan je dit halen? Turnhoutsebaan/ Carnotstraat  Antwerpen heb ik winkeltjes waar ze dit voor €5,00 verkopen. Ben er zeker van dat ze dit ook in andere steden verkopen zoals Brussel, Turnhout, Mechelen,... Je gaat het ook zeker in  Nederland vinden, anders bestel je het gewoon online op Ebay bijvoorbeeld. Let erop dat het 'organic' is. 

Veel plezier ermee! Laat maar weten wat de resultaten zijn!

benefits of oil pulling


"Oil pulling has been around for years, which makes me mad I’ve only just found out about it. It’s an ancient Ayurvedic technique that basically involves you swishing oil in your mouth for 20 minutes (no more no less) & it pulls toxins out of your body through your mouth. The idea behind it is pretty simple stupid- the oil is “sticky” and when you swish it around in your mouth bacteria gets stuck in the oil & dissolves.
It’s easy to do. Pick an oil, you can use ORGANIC coconut oil or sesame oil (I prefer coconut cause it also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, & anti-inflammatory properties), put anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon (depending on what you can handle) in your mouth, swish for 20 minutes.
I know, I know you are freaking out about the 20 minute thing, but TRUST me when I say- it flies by. Something about the whole process is relaxing to me. No talking, just swishing. Pull the oil through your teeth & make sure NOT to swallow it. Once you start, that oil fills up with toxins (the ones you’re going to get rid of), you don’t want to swallow!! When your timer beeps, spit out the toxic waste into a plastic baggy or directly into the trash. Don’t spit it down the drain cause the oil will solidify again & mess up your pipes." http://www.fashionlush.com/wtf-is-oil-pulling-why-im-hooked

Kitten goes pastel

3 reacties
 
Made my first makeup-collage on collage.com.
I was feeling inspired by my visit in Primark: a lot of prints (cats), pastel and funny accents.
They are ready for spring to happen, and I am too!
It's sweet and kind of romantic but with a little twist. Kind of the yolo-feeling with a big FUN factor. Just one thing is sure: fantasy is hip!

1001 Arabian nights

1 reacties
 
Well every great look has his inspiration.
I thought of Arabian nights, a exotic sexy look with a lot off gold and glam.The pictures that I chose have a princess feeling, that is what I love in dressing up/makeup. Just feeling like real royalty. Some volume in the hair, dark eyes (Kohl), perfect shaped dark eyebrows,...
Dark hair, light hair... get inspired by 1001 arabian nights. Every woman has the right to feel like Prinses Jasmin.

Introducing 'P.S. Beauty' Make Up Range | Primark

1 reacties
 



Hi beautylovers.

Monday I had my first real Primark experience, me and my sweet friend went from Belgium to the Netherlands (Eindhoven) to visit the fashion-paradise. (Actually it's just across the border) It was like Disneyland really...

Bought me some shoes, a handbag, a blouse, t-shirt, some necklaces... and I'm really proud of the items. They don't look cheap at all and are totally fashionable: exactly what we all girls need.

I'm definitely going back in a month because I got my eye on the makeup section. 
You can see in the video the colors are fresh and the pigmentation is actually really good. 
Spring is coming so we can see a lot of pastel colors.

Let me know if you actually used Primark Make Up products, and how you experienced them. I'm especially interested in the brushes. Share your thoughts!

Gilded lids

Spring Makeup Trend: Gilded Lids  At Jason Wu's show, Lancôme makeup artists smudged Le Crayon Khol in Black Coffee into creases and lined the top lashes with Jason Wu for Lancôme Artliner in Noir. Then the lids were given a wash of brown eyeshadow and topped with actual loose gold glitter for a stunning metallic effect. Try a metallic pigment to pull this off, like MAC Pressed Pigment in Damson

Smokey eyes are perfect to put your eyes in the spotlights. With this look you get more mysterious and sexy so thé look for a night out... but did you know that there are different kind of smokey eyes, even for a work/schoolday? Just watch and learn.. and/or get inspired!

1. Total black
10 Irresistible Smokey Eyes Tutorials
First you put black on your eyelid. Make a beautiful bow (just like the picture), perfect to make your eyes bigger.  Put some of the black also under the eye: you're eyes get bigger! Then (3), use a business card to make a perfect wing. (6) Don't forget to make a Kayal-line in your eyes.
(8) Smokey eyes are all about blending; take dark brown shadow ... and blend it with the black on the bow.  (11) you can use some shimmer under your eyebrows.
2. The smokey eyes: 3 colors
Different way to make a smokey eye (a way that I prefer) is to blend with 3 colors: working from dark to light. Here we have: Black, Grey, Light grey
First start with the darkest color on the end of your eye. Make a perfect bow.
In the middle we put grey (or other color). Then we finish up with the lightest color (light grey)... and we blend it from the inner corner to the end (the black).
Classic smokey eye. DIY!
This is the basic and can be used with other colors!
... get it?

dummies guide to eyeshadow. You only really need 3 colors for a smokey #Cosmetic


3. Neutral smokey eyes
So now you know the basics. Now you can do this with lighter colors... for an everyday look.
Mostly you use 3 colors... But honestly you can do it with 2 too, just BLEND..

The best afterparty- mask

6 reacties
 
shy and careless

After all the partying your skin needs a treat.
We love to dance on the table and to drink champagne... then we forget to wash all the makeup off. Yes I'm guilty too, I love to put a new face on with foundation and powder, but don't clean my skin like it should.  I have to underline girls... cleaning your face IS necessary, your skin will look older if you don't. Don't believe me? This is what they found out with a experiment on the program The Drs:


 This woman didn't washes her face for a month... and that is what you see on her skin.
See here the whole thing: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/16/makeup-premature-aging-_n_3936828.html Next time you're feeling lazing to wash your face before bed, you better think twice ;).


Make an avocado mask to relax the skin. Make sure that your skin is clean first, use a mild soap. Mix a little bit of honey (so it get sticky) with a avocado. Leave it for 15 minutes then rinse off. You'll feel so much better and your skin will feel fresh. You will get the full spa effect if you'll add some cucumber slices on your eyes. Simple and effective, just the way we like it. Tip! Use rosewater as finishing touch... to close your pores. Have fun with it!
