Little Mix

 

Again, sorry for not posting in what feel like ages. My mother decided to ban all electrical appliances for the whole weekend. Finally she gave in when we all started singing hard knock life fom Annie.

Apparently, Little Mix are the biggest pop band at the moment. I’m a mixer because I love this genre of music and they appreciate their fans. They are are a positive role model for this generation. They tell girls you don’t need a man to be beautiful and we are as strong as we think.

My favourite lyric is ” you made my heart break and that made me who I am,” meaning we can be independent and find ourselves in time.

Comment your favourite Little Mix song and why you are a mixer. Not the electrical appliance!

Butterbeer

For those that dont know (shame on you) butterbeer is a beverage served at The Three Broomsticks Inn in Harry Potter. This is a simple recipe you can make at home.

 

Ingredients;

1 Quart of Vanilla Ice Cream.

55g Butterscotch Syrup.

32 oz. Cream Soda.

 

1. Place 4 glasses in the freezer and chill for at least 20 minutes.

2. Mix ice cream and cream soda in blender until combined.

3. Add Butterscotch syrup and stir well.

4. Divide between the frosted glasses.

5. Top up with whipped cream.

6. Serve with straw and spoon.

 

 

You can also print off the butterbeer logo and stick it to the glass if you wish or just leave it plain. Comment on whether you tried this method,  I have tried many different recipes but this one is personally my favourite.

 

 

Me Before You

 

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

 

Yes, I know this is a very old book. For Christmas I got the two books and the movie. (Aswell as many other books which I hope to do book reviews on aswell.)

I have recently finished it and WOW!  It’s a tremendously beautiful story with characters you automatically connect with. I loved it! I have literally dragged my friend’s to the libary and forced this book upon them  it was that good. The relationship between Lou and Will is one where you hate it but then you love it after time.It’s incredibly moving and well laid out. Jojo Moyes is a genius. It’s so moving and romantic, I just wanted to curl up on the sofa and dissapear away with them.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! YOU MAY NEED TO ARM YOURSELF WITH A BOX OF TISSUES!

Sorry

I personally don’t like Justin Bieber, its fine if you do, my sister would marry him of she had the chance. But these are appropriate fitting song lyrics. I’m so sorry for not updating yesterday but i had the most killer headache and was sick 😦 . Thank you very much for the likes on my coconut oil post. Comment on which one ,if any, you tried!

Yesterdays fiasco inspired me for todays post,  Easy Ways To Cure Mind-Numbing Headaches.

1. Most obviously take pain killers, take them earlier rather than later.

2.Use caffeine carefully, having too much can actually lead to more headaches.

3.Drink plenty of water.

4. Find a dark, quiet place to have a sit down.

5.Relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation to help your  muscle relaxation.

6. Use a cool compressor, its a gel-like substance, frozen in a packet.

7. Massage your face and scalp aswell as your neck and shoulders.

8. Use breathing techniques.

9. Try herbal remedies.

10.Get plenty of sleep.

Please excuse my absence of posting yesterday, i will try to update everyday if posible. It would be great to hear some of your thought in the comments. Have a great evening. xxx

Coconut Oil?

Coconut oil is rarely used, but recently I have out just how beneficial it actually is for simple everyday uses here are just a few of them:

Shaving Cream

Ingredients;

  • 32 g aloe vera (you can also use conditioner if you don’t have aloe vera)
  • 32 g coconut oil
  • 4-6 drops essential oil (peppermint, tea tree, lavender or a combination)

Melt the coconut oil and combine with the other ingredients. Stir together and store in a plastic container. Apply a thin layer to skin and let sit a couple of minutes before shaving. The aloe will soften the leg hair whilst the coconut oil moisturizes skin, helping to prevent razor burn and skin irritation. Add the essential oil of your preference. Peppermint will give a cooling sensation, lavender is soothing and tea tree is a good antiseptic if you have cut yourself.However if coconut oil hardens or separates between uses, put the container under the shower stream before shaving to warm it up.

 

Night Cream

Ingredients;

  • 128 g coconut oil, solid
  • ½ tsp VitaminE Oil
  • ¼ tsp Tea tree oil

Add coconut oil to a mixing bowl and whip with electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Mix in VitaminE and  tea tree oil.Store in a little container, I would recommend a mason jar. Use at night after you cleanse your face. A little goes a looonngg way, use wisely.

Cuticle treatment

Simply before painting nails or any time, rub  little oil into your cuticle with forefinger.

Lip Balm

Ingredients;

  • 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly
  •  1 teaspoon coconut oil
  •  4 drops vanilla extract
  •  5 drops almond extract

Microwave the petroleum jelly for two minutes or until melted.Mix in the coconut oil,vanilla extract and almond extract. Pour into lip blam container and freeze for 20 minutes.

Contitioner 

Ingredients;

Unrefined, cold- pressed coconut oil

Put on old clothes and a towel around your shoulders because coconut oil can get a little drippy.Meausure 3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl. The amount you put in depends on the thickness and length of your hair. The longer and thicker it is the more oil you will need to use, i wouldnt recommend using any more than 5 tablespoons otherwise your hair can appear quite greasy as it produces its own natural oils. Heat up the coconut oil, AVOID USING THE MICROWAVE. Heat it up using your hands or heat it in a small saucepan on the stove , let it cool and get warm before you use it. Rub the coconut oil into your hair evenly distributing, use your fingers to massage it down the hair shaft all the way to the tips. Pile your hair onto your head and cover it using a showercap or an old t-shirt. Wait at least 2 hours or overnight, the longer you leave it the better.   Remove the wrapping and wash your hair using sulfate-free shampoo, wash it 2 or 3 times until it no longer feels oily. Let your hair dry you can blow dry it or air dry to see the effects of the conditioning treatment. It should appear soft, shiny and gleaming.

Others

Replace it for handcream.

Use instead of cooking oil, its more healthy.

Rub a bit into your dog’s coat to nourish and and have it shiny.

 

I hope you have used some of these methods, these are just a few but there are plenty more even toothpaste recipes. Enjoy your day xxx

To Build A Home

 

This song makes you think about who you could be, the places you could go, the people you could meet, how your life will move, when you’ll meet the love of your life, who you really are and how you feel about life and the world. The world is a beautiful place, and many people don’t appreciate life itself. Life is a beautiful thing. It can’t be taken for granted, nor should it be lost. The beauty of life is, we all have a purpose, and some of us will succeed, while others may fail. But you’ll never know how your life is supposed to be if you dont go and smell the roses. Finding your purpose is one of the hardest challenges the world has to offer. But one day, it will come to you, and you will find out your passions, your love, how you think. For some odd reason, many people find their purpose, but it has been disguised, or they see it as too challenging, or too large of an idea, and they let it slip away. So you should never stop living. If you’re in a hardship, go out and kick it’s ass. That’s the beauty of life. You choose how you play your cards.

For anyone who’s having a bad day or going through a bad period in their life, please remember that someone out there loves you whether you’ve met them yet or not. You are enough, you deserve every chance life gives you, you are loved even if at this time in your life you are the only one who loves you. Never give up on yourself because you are worth it and never forget how beautiful you are. A while ago I read this quote that really stuck with me, it goes something like this : “Killing yourself might end the pain but it doesn’t allow it to get better.” . It was said better than that but it’s a simple message that we shouldn’t forget. Have an amazing day because you are the master of your own destiny.
