Have a good weekend guys



No one ever really plans on waking up and having a bad day. But when you don't get enough sleep, when there's a lot on your mind, or even if you simply had a dream that rubbed you the wrong way, it can alter your mood before your feet even hit the floor. It's human and understandable. The key is to not allow it to ruin the rest of your morning, let alone the rest of your day.

And just how can you do that? By choosing to think on the positive side. If for you, that's easier said than done, here are some quotes to either print off, or jot down on a Post-it. These simple quotes can help you to see life differently.

Look for the silver lining

The silver lining. It sounds so clich but there are a lot of benefits that come from trying to incorporate seeing the silver lining in all things. Say that you just found out that you didn't get the promotion you were looking for. That sucks. But the silver lining is you still have a job. Say that you found out your car needs some repairs. That's unfortunate. But at least you have a vehicle. Looking on the brighter side of things is not about ignoring your problems. It's about choosing to see the good in the midst of them. Doing that can do a lot to lighten your spirits and mood

Rejection can be a form of protection

Who wants to be rejected? Whether it's related to a professional opportunity or a personal situation, being told "no" can do a number on your self-esteem. If you let it. Rather than choosing to see rejection as a personal attack, look for how it could end up being a blessing in disguise. Sometimes the closed doors are the ones that lead you to something far better than what you originally thought that you wanted. Life has a funny way of working out like that sometimes.

Something great could be moments away

Just because you have an idea of what the day will bring, that doesn't mean there may not be some surprises up ahead. One of the best (and quickest) ways to get yourself out of a bad mood is to choose to say to yourself "I'm going to be on the lookout for something great." The positive energies that you put forth could bring all kinds of happiness your way.

Bad times are sometimes growing pains

When a baby is in the process of being born, it is a challenging time for the child and the mother. But the difficulties are what end up manifesting a pure miracle. Along these same lines, that's how we should look at the bad times we might be having. In order to grow, sometimes there has to be discomfort, if not flat-out pain. The good news is, you'll be a bigger and better person because of it, if you choose to think positively.

Yes, it could ALWAYS be worse

The "it could always be worse" approach is not about minimizing what you're going through. It's about helping you to keep those experiences in their proper perspective. You don't have enough money for cable? There are some people who don't have a place to stay. You just found out you need to have a root canal? Some folks just got a cancer diagnosis. Accepting that things could be worse than they are helps you to be less of a complainer and more of a solutions-oriented kind of individual. That's always a good thing.

Happiness is a choice

If you were only happy when things went just the way you wanted them to, you would be on an emotional roller coaster for the rest of your life! Don't allow outward circumstances to predict what your overall attitude is going to be. Choose happiness no matter what. It's what will give you the ability to make things better, no matter how stressful or challenging they may be. Have a good one!




There are countless lotions and potions we women are expected to slather all over our faces and hair on the regular to ensure our beauty is at it's peak. That being said, what if we told you one of the best things you could do for your beauty routine is take a vitamin supplement? It may sound like hokum, but ingesting certain supplements can actually aid in the health, growth, and appearance of your hair,skin, and nails!

Apparently there are 3 specific supplements that really have the most effect, and those include Biotin, Vitamin B, and Marine Fatty Acids. You're probably wondering exactly what each of them does. So here we go......

Biotin helps your nails, hair and skin regenerate and promotes growth. It also keeps your hair looking shiny and prevents your scalp from getting all flaky and dried out. If you are worried about your hair and nails looking brittle, or breaking, biotin is the way to go. One warning though, if you consider yourself quite hairy in the not so ideal spots (body, face, etc), Biotin may not be the best choice for you because unfortunately, it does not only target head hair. 

Vitamin B is a huge defender against acne because it acts as an antioxidant and anti-bacterial for the skin. It is also an easy way to balance testosterone which is one of the major hormones that leads to breakouts. Bonus: Vitamin B helps prevent stress, which leads to acne, lack of sleep and countless other issues as you probably know.

Ok, we know Marine Fatty Acid sounds kind of gross, but they are actually some of the best combatants against dry skin, flaky scalp, and hair loss. These Omega-3's can be found in nuts and fatty fish, but taking a supplement to aid your diet is a great idea if you are concerned about the appearance and health of your hair, skin, and nails. Another great thing this specific supplement does is help to repair skin cells, even cells that have been damaged due to sun exposure so if you're someone who spends a great deal of time outdoors, you should absolutely consider taking Marine Fatty Acids. 





Going solo can be terrifying. A group of friends offers comfort in any situation, especially in brand new or crowded places. It isn't easy to do thing by yourself, but it's vital to living your best life. Taking time to yourself each day, for a variety of tasks, will make you a more well-rounded person and will set you up for success in your future. Here's why.

You need to find out who you are

We tend to pick up the ideas, language, and even mannerisms of the people we spend a lot of time with. While sharing a similar personality with your best friends is awesome, it may sometimes obscure who you really are and hinder your growth as a person. Setting out alone time throughout your week is a great way to encounter new things and ideas to react to by yourself. Without the input of others, you'll be able to form your own opinions and gather your own unique ideas about the world.

You need to recharge yourself

Being around a lot of people can lead to sensory overload. The best way to unwind and re-energize yourself is to take time for yourself frequently. Use your time alone to release any tension that may have developed while being overstimulated. Get a massage or go for a run.

You need perspective

Part of recharging yourself is reflecting on things that have happened to you recently. The most intense situations feel the worst when you're in the thick of it, like when you're having an argument with your boyfriend, when you've made a mistake, or when you've been betrayed by someone close to you. Your emotions peak when the situation, or the person, is in front of you and you may make bad decisions from being overwhelmed. By taking alone time, you can put these situations into perspective and think about the short and long term implications of your actions. If you take time to think by yourself before speaking to someone you're upset with, you'll have a more rational and clear conversation.

You need to be independent

While friendship and love are amazing support systems, no one is going to be able to support you more than yourself. Whether it's running errands, traveling, or going to a concert by yourself, independence is key to living a full life. Don't let fear of doing things alone hinder you from doing what you want to do. Learn to love doing things by yourself and for yourself.

You need to take care of yourself

Self care is critical to a beautiful life. It goes beyond getting your hair done and treating yourself to a nice day out. Sometimes self care means removing yourself from potentially stressful situations in favor of hanging out with yourself. The next time you're invited to an event that you know may involve drama, feel free to bow out of it and spend time with yourself instead. Your sanity is the more important than being seen in a crowd any day. ♥







Many people believe that long distance relationships are never going to work out. Your family may discourage it, and some of your best friends may advise you not to take it too seriously, in case you get your heart broken.

Nobody says it is going to be easy  the extra distance makes many things unachievable. Things could get complicated, and you could get sad and lonely at times. However, the extra distance also makes the simplest things the sweetest, being able to hold the other person's hand, eating together at the same table, feeling each other's touch, taking a walk together, smelling each other's hair.. these small wishes could suddenly mean so much more in a long distance relationship.

Long distance relationship may be tough but it has its own surprises too. To keep your love alive and strong, here are the tips to make your long distance relationship work:

1. Avoid excessive communication.

It is unwise to be overly "sticky" and possessive. You two don't really have to communicate 12 hours a day to keep the relationship going. Many couples thought that they need to compensate for the distance by doing more. This is not true. And it might only make things worse. Soon you would get tired of "loving."  Remember: Less is more. It is not about spamming - you are only going to exhaust yourselves. It's really about teasing at the right moments and tugging at the right spots.

2. See it as a opportunity.

"If you want to live together, you first need to learn how to live apart." Anonymous

View it as a learning journey for the both of you. See it as a test of your love for each other. As the Chinese saying goes, "Real gold is not afraid of the test of fire." Instead of thinking that this long distance relationship is pulling you two apart, you should believe that through this experience, the both of you will be bound together even stronger.

3. Set some ground rules to manage your expectations.

Both of you need to be clear with what you expect of with each other during this long distance relationship. Set some ground rules so that none of you will do things that will take the other party by surprise. For instance, are you two exclusive? Is it alright for the other person to go on dates? What is your commitment level? It's better to be open with each other about all these things.

4.Try to communicate regularly, and creatively.

Greet each other "good morning" and "good night" every day this is a must. On top of that, try to update your partner on your life and its happening, however mundane some of the things may seem. To up the game, send each other pictures, audio clips and short videos from time to time. By putting in this kind of effort, you make the other person feel loved and attended to.

5 .Talk dirty with each other.

Sexual tension is undoubtedly one of the most important things between couples. Sexual desire is like a glue that keeps both parties from drifting apart. Not only is sex a biological need, it is an emotional one as well. Keep the flames burning by sending each other teasing texts filled with sexual innuendos and provocative descriptions. Sexy puns work pretty well too.

1. Have a goal in mind.

"What do we want to achieve at the end of the day?" "How long are we going to be apart?" "What about the future?" These are the questions you two need to ask yourselves. The truth is, no couple can be in a long distance relationship for forever. Eventually we all need to settle down.

So make a plan with each other. Do up a timeline, marking down the estimated times apart and times together, and draw an end goal. It is important that you two are on the same page and have the same goals. So that even if you are not living in the same space and the same timezone, both of you are still working together in the same direction towards a future that includes one another.

6. Avoid "dangerous" situations.

If you already know that going to the club or going drinking with your group of friends late at night will displease your partner, then you should either 1. Not do it or 2. Tell your partner beforehand so as to reassure him/her. Don't be careless about this sort of matter because your partner is only going to be extra worried or extra suspicious, and of course, very upset, because you are putting him/her in a position where he/she feels extra powerless/lacking in control.

Also, It could be easy for you to fall into the trap which you, unconsciously or not, set up for yourself by "hanging out" with your office eye-candy after work, or going out with a girl or guy from your past who has been flirting with you. You need to recognize the dangers before entering into the situation. Don't just listen to your heart. Listen to your mind too.

 7. Do things together.

Play an online game together. Watch a documentary on YouTube or Vimeo at the same time. Sing to each other on Skype while one of you plays music "Take a walk together" outside while video-calling each other. Go online-shopping together  and buy each other gifts if possible.

8. Do similar things.

Recommend books, TV shows, movies, music, news and etc to each other. When you read, watch and listen to the same things, you get to have more topics in common to talk about. This is a good to create some shared experiences even though you are living apart.

 9. Make visits to each other.

Visits are the highlight of every long distance relationship. After all the waiting and yearning and abstinence, you finally get to meet each other to fulfill all the little things like kissing, holding hands, etc. which are all common to other couples but so very special and extra intimate for people in long distance relationships. It will be like fireworks, glitter bombs, confetti, rainbows and butterflies everywhere.

 10. Have a goal in mind.

"What do we want to achieve at the end of the day?" "How long are we going to be apart?" "What about the future?" These are the questions you two need to ask yourselves. The truth is, no couple can be in a long distance relationship for forever. Eventually we all need to settle down.

So make a plan with each other. Do up a timeline, marking down the estimated times apart and times together, and draw an end goal. It is important that you two are on the same page and have the same goals. So that even if you are not living in the same space and the same timezone, both of you are still working together in the same direction towards a future that includes one another

11. Enjoy your alone time and your time with your friends and family.

You are alone but you are not lonely, unless you choose to feel like it. You don't have to let your world revolve around your partner  you still have you, your friends and your family. Take this time apart to do more with your friends and family. Go to the gym more often. Get a new hobby. Binge-watch shows. There are plenty of things for you to do that doesn't involve your partner.

12. Stay honest with each other.

Talk about your feelings of fear, insecurity, jealousy, apathy, whatsoever. If you try to hide anything from your partner, that secret will sooner or later swallow you up from inside out. Don't try to deal with things all by yourself. Be open and honest with each other. Let your partner help you and give you the support you need. it's better to look at the problem during its initial stage than to only disclose it when it's all too late.

13. Know each other?s schedules.

It's helpful to know when the other person is busy and when he/she is free, so that you can drop a text or make a call at the right time. You wouldn't want to disturb your partner when he/she is in the middle of class or halfway through a business meeting. Know the small and big events that are taking place or will take place in each other's life e.g. college mid-terms and exams, important business trips and meetings, job interviews and etc. This is especially essential when the both of you are living in different time zones.

14. Keep track of each other's social media activities.

Like each other's photos on Facebook and Instagram. Tweet each other. Tag each other. Share things on each other's walls. Show that you care. Be cool about stalking each other.

 15. Gift a personal object for the other person to hold on to.

There is power in a memento. Be it a small pendent, a ring, a keychain, a CD of songs and videos, or a bottle of fragrance. We often attach meanings to the little things and items found in our everyday life, whether knowingly or not. This is what we all do - we try to store memories in physical things, in hope that when our mind fails us, we can look or hold on to something that will help us remember. This is why something so simple can mean so much to a person, when others may see little or no value in it.

16. Get a good messaging app.

This is extremely important because texting is the most frequent and common way of communication the two of you have. You need a good messaging app on your phones that allow interactions beyond just words and emoticons.

Personally, I use this messaging app called LINE. I find it highly effective because it has a huge reserve of playful and very funny "stickers" that are free for its users to use. You can also go to the app's "Sticker Shop" to download extra stickers of different themes (e.g. Hello Kitty, Pokemon, Snoopy, MARVEL and etc.) at a low price. From time to time, the app also gives out free sticker sets for different promotions. This messaging app is cute and easy to learn to use.

17. Snail-mail it!

Mail each other postcards and hand-written love letters. Send each other gifts across the globe from time to time. Flower deliveries on birthdays, anniversaries and Valentine's Day. Shop online and surprise each other with cool T-shirts, sexy underwears and such.

18. Stay positive.

You need to be constantly injecting positive energy into the long distance relationship to keep it alive. Yes, the waiting can be painful and you can sometimes feel lonesome but you need to remind yourself that the fruits at the end will be sweet as heaven. One good trick to staying positive is to be grateful all the time. Be thankful that you have someone to love - someone who also loves you back. Be thankful for the little things, like the hand-made letter that arrived safely in your mailbox the other day. Be thankful for each other's health and safety.

19. Keep each other updated on each other's friends and family.

Because gossips and scandals are always the best things to go on and on about.

20. Video-call whenever possible.

Because looking into each other's eyes and hearing each other's voices can make everything feel alright again.

Luscious Cream 524











2015 was all about contouring, but it's a new year. We're absolutely head-over-heels obsessed with the glow that highlighters give us and we want MORE! There's nothing more disappointing than seeing brand name makeup in your favorite magazine and thinking, "I should buy this!" Buy something expensive later, you realize maybe it wasn't worth the money. Below is  a list of affordable highlighters that do the job for all skin tones


Highlighter trio by Model Co

Baked Highlighters by ELF

This is definitely one of the most affordable highlighters and it sells out like CRAZY. If you want your face to shine for less, ELF is your best bet. 

Copacabana the Multiple by NARS

Although a bit on the pricy side - Copacabana can be used for literally everything. Highlighting sticks have been really popular amongst celebrity makeup artists and bloggers because of how easy it is to blend, but they can also be used for eyeshadow and just generally brightening your look.

Illuminators by Anastasia Beverly Hills

Every makeup vlogger swears by Anatasia Beverly Hills, and we have to take their word for it. It's like an instagram filter for your face..except...it follows you everywhere you go. We'll take one in every shade, please.

Chanel Camelia de Plume

If highlighter is the one makeup item you are willing to splurge on, this is your new best friend. Every Chanel highlighter has 'chic aesthetic' written all over it. It feels like you are applying actual gold to your skin and it looks like it too. Every single one has a design on it. What a true work of art.

First of all, it's called fairy dust. That should be the only reason you need to get it. Secondly, it naturally smells like Tinkerbell. Third, it's 110% natural. In conclusion, you'll feel like a fairy princess just by wearing this.









































Did you know that your skin, nails, and hair get hungry too? They require nutrients to remain strong and healthy, much in the same way our bodies require food for energy. So what are the best superfoods for your hair, skin, and nails? I've picked the most effective eats for strengthening and growing your most precious assets. And don't worry, these foods are healthy and most importantly, delicious so you'll have no trouble adding them into your current die

Best Foods for Your Hair

Salmon: What do we want from our hair? We want it to shine! Salmon promotes high-shine because of its high Omega-3 fatty acid content.

Greek Yogurt: Protein promotes healthy growth and Greek Yogurt is packed with it. It also contains vitamin B5 which helps fight against thinning and loss.

Sweet Potatoes: If you hair is looking dull, sweet potatoes are the superfood you need to add some luster back into your locks. Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene which turns into Vitamin A and protects against dry, brittle hair

Best Foods for Your Nails

Red Meat: Red meat is packed with protein which we already know promotes hair and nail growth. Plus it contains high levels of Iron, which is something your nails need for strength. Don't eat it every day because it is high in saturated fat, so stick to red meat once a week.

Almonds: Looking for a food packed with protein and magnesium? Look no further than delicious raw almonds. Magnesium is an anti-stress mineral which keeps nails strong and free from bumpy vertical ridges.

Oysters: Oysters aren't just an aphrodisiac, they are also a hair and nail superfood! Due to their high Zinc content, Oysters promote protein growth where you need it most.

Best Foods for Your Skin

Olive Oil: This may seem obvious, but not only is it good to put oil on your skin it's also great to eat it! Olive oil slows aging and the antioxidant Polyphenols quenches your skin's prolific thirst.

Green Tea: For elasticity and smoothness, look to green tea. This super-drink also helps protect against harmful UV ray damage.

Kale: We all know kale is good for us, but do we know why? Part of the reason is due to the lutein and zeaxanthin nutrients that absorb harmful UV light. Plus, just one cup of kale gives you over 100% of your daily vitamin's A & B intake which promotes firming and elasticity
