Cheap Home Remedies That Actually Work!

Having very nice, beautiful, dewy skin these days seriously seems unachievable due to the high expenses of the products that we usually shop for. I won’t lie, I leave a hole in my wallet every time I shop for skin care products. It’s a guilty pleasure that we’re all prone to at one point of our lives. until one day I really wanted to see how avocado masks helped with skin until I saw a tutorial on how to make it yourself. Cool part about it was that the results of the DIY still came out as well as the manufactured mask. I then spent most of my time looking up tutorials for different types of masks. It’s great knowing that you can ditch the $45 and indulge into a remedy that could cost up to $5-10!

 

Egg White Mask:

Ingredients: Egg white, lemon juice (optional), oatmeal (optional), honey (optional)

Estimated time on face 15-30 min

as you could tell from the ingredients listed above you don’t really need the oats, or the lemon juice, or the honey. the most essential item you’ll actually need would be egg whites. Egg whites are great for the skin as they help shrink pores, lift skin (yes, they provide a skin lift) AND THEY REMOVE BLACKHEADS!!!! egg white masks are a blessing and that’s why it’s the first remedy I spoke about. It’s amazing, guys! #bliss

 

Avocado and oatmeal mask:

Ingredients: avocado, oatmeal, and honey

Estimated time on face: 15-30 min

I love this mask simply because of the ingredients in it. Other than that, make sure that the avocado you use is ripe as it’ll show better results, less signs of skin irritation, and easier to ‘squash’ . Benefits of this mask is that it helps hydrate the skin and also exfoliates a bit. The oatmeal helps with any inflimation in the skin and also helps with those who have sensitive skin so that’s a win! the avocado helps with giving your skin that beautiful glow which i’m pretty sure everyone wants. One step closer to dewy! Lastly, the honey helps because it provides antioxidant which also reduce aging and gets you clearer skin!! YAAASSS QUEEEENS!!!

Pepto Bismol Mask:

Ingredients: Pepto Bismol

Estimated time on face: 15 min

Whaaaaaa? You mean that thing that helps an upset stomach can actually help my face too? Yes Queen… Or King. Pepto Bismol helps with black heads, tightening pores, and reduces breakouts! Do you know what that means ladies? Your period has a new competition next month just cause Pepto Bismol is about to kick some ass!

I hope you enjoyed the remedies and I hope that I helped save some money in your pockets! Have fun digging in your fridge or cabinents when you make your next facial! Good luck!

A reason why most Christians break.

imageBeing on a spiritual path is honestly the most difficult thing to do. Whether you’re a Muslim, Christain, or a Jew. There’s always going to be trials and tribulations in anything you do while you’re on a hectic journey. I’m a Christian and honestly being on a spiritual path is difficult, I’ve never been baptized so I always used to claim that’s a key reason as to why I have never been on a steady path until I realized that wasn’t the problem. No matter what you do, you’re going to have difficulty. No one has ever said it was going to be easy. Yes, accepting Christ into your life is an easy thing to do. But, following the will of God is very hard. You live in a world where people mentally and physically crucify you for being a believer in Christ. They put you down, call you lame. Tell you you’re stupid for believing in something that has no scientific proof that it actually happened. People literally pull out more facts as to why Satan is a better choice and it’s insane. At the end of the day all of those things taunt you and actually make you question “Is it really worth it?” You’ll pray to God to open up the minds of the people who don’t see him the way that you do and yet no change. Horrible things happen to you or a love one, you spend most of your time crying, begging on your knees, begging for a miracle, yet nothing happens. You see many great things going on in many people’s lives and yet nothing happens to yours. With time you start to take that as a sign that maybe God just doesn’t care about you or love you. These things start to ruin everyone’s path slowly and makes them go back to their old selfish habits and distruct their path. The one thing people miss is patience. Patience to understand that not everything happens quickly, or happens accordingly to you’re plan, but instead God’s plan. It’s the most common Christian cliche one can hear. Sad thing about cliche’s is that you hear them so much that they slowly start to lose their meaning. I get that, but patience helps and it’s honestly a key in a very good spiritual path. I’m not saying that I am the best thing ever when it comes to patience (God knows I’m not). But knowing that you’re not alone in this journey is probably the most reassuring thing ever. Knowing that you can help and inspire people during that journey helps too. Never lose faith in what you’re doing and always have patience in every step you take once you enter your spiritual path. It may be a long journey but never lose hope! (:

To All The Heart Breakers & The Broken Hearted

To All The Heart Breakers & The Broken Hearted

original

Many people around the world can agree that a broken heart can be the worst pain that one can ever experience. Having a broken heart can leave someone scarred for life. It’s like even though with time that scar may heal, but you will still be able to see the wound that was left, and you’ll also be able to remember how it all happened and the pain that occurred after it. So my question is, Why do some people have zero shame in causing a broken heart? The fact that you are intentionally leading someone on, making them believe that they’re in a relationship and also having them assume that they were in love, or possibly being in love is a horrible thing.

I hope you know that you’re ruining their perspective on love just for the benefit of yourself. Okay, maybe you yourself at one point played victim of getting your heart broken, and you don’t mean to do what you’re doing right now, but what gain do you have in becoming the oppressor in this situation? You’re just becoming the number one thing you’ve been trying to avoid your whole life, a heart breaker.

You may try to say that the only reason why you’re acting harsh is to protect yourself from getting your own heart broken again. If you have to protect yourself from pain by exposing it to someone else, just know that you’re exposing that person to  a type of pain that they have never imagined to be humanly possible. A pain that ruins them completely . A type of pain that makes them lose their trust in so many people, and also to the point  where they can no longer trust again.

So to all you heart breakers out there, or future heart breakers. Just know that before you try getting  involved in a new intimate relationship of any kind; please just make sure that you’re not trying to lead someone on just to fill in that empty space in your heart, or to just use someone to make yourself feel better. It truly hurts to find out that the person who you actually had feelings for and invested so much of your time for only had “interest” in you to make themselves feel better. How would you feel being responsible for another broken heart when you couldn’t even mend your own?

The moral of all of this is to just make sure that you have interest in him/her and to not use them for your own personal benefits.

Dear Writer’s Block.

635868829200793015-720714501_Writers Block.jpg

Dear writer’s block,

I’m going to start this letter off in the most respectful way as I can get…. I hate you. I actually have this deep, never ending hatred for you, and I will never have one ounce of likeness for you.

The fact that I have to stare at a computer or phone screen looking completely spaced out, and not to mention,  having a cursor blink at me. I consider that cursor to be mocking me. Just telling me that I have an empty mind with zero ideas flowing through it, but I know that there are ideas there, somewhere. You see, you have me disgraced in the writing world, and I don’t appreciate that. I would kindly appreciate you to find ways to empower me in my writing instead of belittling me. I know that’s never going to happen, but at least try?

While I’m at it. May I introduce you to this thing called a deadline? Yes those are the dates/times as to when a certain thing is due. Most people would like to call them, due dates. I hate having to type up a paper in the middle of the night, and I can’t think of anything to type about. All because my little “friend” writers block decided to join me, and literally make all my ideas disappear. The sad thing is that I know what I’m writing about, I understand the topic, I actually have ideas as to what I should be writing about, but then you come in and leave me looking completely stunned at the computer screen. You’re like those really unwanted friends that just randomly show up at your house, but except… Those people are actually tolerable.

People warned me about you, but I thought that I could handle you. Boy, was I wrong. You are the hardest thing to get over, and once you leave you always come back!!! I can have all these random ideas in my head, and then once I put myself in front of a computer, tablet, phone, or notepad; you just magically appear! Do you know how toxic you can be? You’re worse than Xanax, and I mean that in the most harshest way as possible. You’re mentally deadly, and I can’t have that much negative energy around me.Over the past five years (still counting) you have caused so many bags under my eyes, and I have invested so much money into coffee, and face masks that it’s not even funny anymore.

I believe it’s time to cut the cord in our “relationship” but before we do i just want you to know that it’s you, not me. Is it actually sad that I had writer’s block while writing this letter to you? Spent one hour typing this contemplating on what to say. Oh well, I just hope you stay out of my life after this, and to never return again.

Why We Should All Take A Social Media Cleanse.

Okay, So I myself and many other people around the world (including you) have considered social media to literally being our second life. You can’t tell me that I am the only one who wakes up in the morning, faintly opens their eyes, and unlocks their phone just to check their Facebook News Feed, or to go on Snapchat just to check what Kyle posted at 2:00 in the morning. I didn’t think so.

As fun as social media may be (super fun!) we also have to accept the fact that we have a whole life in front of us that we are putting on hold just because we’re too busy trying to figure out why Rob decided to make Blacc Chyna a Kardashian. To be honest with you guys…. I’m still trying to figure that out too. Like come on! That massive love square that they have going on, whooo! Before I spring off topic (whoops! already did.)  Let’s just go over the reasons why we all just need to go on a Social media cleanse for at least a week. Yes, I said it. A WEEK!

 

You Get To Explore Life A Little More!

Ahhhhh yes! Life. Not social media life, but an actual life. I’m pretty sure that there are many things  that you have been dying to do laltley,but your phone always got in the way of it, or finally getting to do something fun with friends, and family and not having to snapchat a single thing of what’s going on. You can actually have fun without having that little ‘buzz’ getting in the way and literally ruining that moment. Think about that.

 

Less Phone, Less Arguments.

You already know what that means! With the presence of your phone being at a minimum you can avoid so much arguments with friends, family, or a significant other. Let’s say you’re  at the dinner table with family.You keep checking your phone, and your mom honestly can’t handle it, so she starts to bash you about the lack of communication you give to the family. You can also be with bae, and they’re talking about their day, and your phone just suddnely goes off and instead of you to ignore that notification you unlock your phone, and quicky reply that message and they get angry and demand for your “undivided attention”. Maybe if that phone were to be away, then those situations could be avoided.

 

You Actually Become Less Paranoid.

Yes, hun! Less paranoid. Remember when Chris said that he’ll text you when he get’s home? (lies!) , or having to have that never ending battle with yourself wondering if you should text bae first or if you should just wait for them to text you back. Yeah, when you cut social media out of your life you actually don’t have to deal with those problems. You’re not with your phone so it doesn’t matter anyways. Having to not worry about that notificatiom coming in from instagram to know how many people liked your pictures, or to see if you got that text back, or to see that you got your message left on read and probably not getting a text back is probably the most best feeling that someone can actually experience, and I am being so serious.

So now you know some really good reasons as to why we should all take a nice social media break. Maaaaaybe I over exaggerated a little when I said we should do it for a week. Maybe just 3-4 days! haha. Thanks for reading, guys! Till nex time!

~Anne (:
