Pretty in Pink

For some reason Pink was a hard color to come by this week. Here are a few that I found... 












There you have it. For one week I was in the Pink!

Honey I Gotta Tell Ya


Honey, I gotta tell ya…. Cleopatra had it right. Fill a bath with milk and honey, and sit in it while the world goes by. Skin needs to be kept hydrated in order to remain soft, supple and elastic. Age, life's stresses, and everyday pollution really stretch our skin to the limit and affect its ability to stay moist. Skin becomes dry, cracked, and yes… those dreaded wrinkles appear.

 

Honey attracts and holds on to moisture, making it a natural humectant. Honey is also good for sensitive skin. But, the benefits of honey for beauty don't stop there. Studies show that honey has good antioxidant properties. Antioxidants not only play a part in protecting the skin from the harmful rays of the sun, but are also rather handy when it comes to skin rejuvenation. Its antimicrobial talents make it good for skin break-outs without drying the skin. 

Honey makes an excellent mask that is convenient and easy to use. It is especially appropriate for dry and damaged skin. It can be used as frequently as desired. 


 Basic Honey Mask 

½-1 teaspoon of honey per facial 
Pat and massage honey onto the skin, spreading it evenly over your face. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. 


Give it a try... Honey, you know you're worth it!

Keep Those Pearly Whites White

Jerry got his front teeth crowned and now he has some of the prettiest teeth around. Of course, they came with a hefty price tag. I'd love to have those beautiful pearly whites but I'll have to get mine a different way. 

One of the easiest ways to impress people and make the best first impression is to have whiter teeth. Studies show that whitening or bleaching your teeth can be hard on your enamel. (I've tried those whitening strips...yuck!) To keep your smile brilliant try these techniques. (They are in no particular order.)

 *Clean out your mouth right after sipping teeth-staining liquids like coffee, tea, red wine and colas. If you can't brush right away, swish your teeth with water. 

 *Cut back on acid-forming foods such as meat, dairy and sweets. Plaque build-up is promoted by these foods. Increase your veggies and whole grains.

 *Use baking soda on your brush before cleaning your teeth. You can mix baking soda with a dash of salt and add a little vinegar to make a homemade tooth whitener. Some toothpastes also contain baking soda for whitening.

 *Avoid tobacco use. 

 *Make regular appointments to get your teeth cleaned. Getting rid of the plaque build-up will make your teeth look whiter. 

 *Some fruits such as strawberries are excellent tooth whiteners. Strawberries can be rubbed on the teeth or mashed up in a paste and brushed on. Leave on the teeth for five minutes. Rinse well and brush.

 * Take care when choosing a mouthwash. Most have alcohol in them, and some even have ingredients such as chlorhexidine that can discolor teeth. Herbal antibacterial mouthwashes are available that kill germs and freshen breath without harmful chemicals

 *An apple a day keeps the doctor away- this goes for stains too! Eating an apple gives your body vitamins and minerals and also brushes your teeth and whitens them.

 Remember that results won't become visible over night and that patience and consistency are a must!

Colour Lovers Project

I am going to try something a little different for the next couple of weeks. Instead of Wordless Wednesday I am going to try the Colour Lovers Project. It is hosted by Xanthe Berkeley and Andrea Jenkins. Each week they give the color and we are to find photos documenting that color. I am hoping to be a little more creative with my photography if I participate in this project. Plus it just sounds like fun. 

This week is RED. So later this week I hope to have some great photos of my favorite color!
