Fitness,health,beauty,body shapes..& my philosophy

Hello there!Today I have a different topic for you-not related to makeup!Shocker,right?!Anyways,I was thinking of writing also about non related to beauty articles..

Society seems to be pushing us too far..body self image represents a huge concern to many of us.We let media,celebrities,skinny models dictate how we should look,what we should wear,even how we should live!But these are OUR LIVES that we're talking about.Mine,yours...Why do we blindly follow all these ''instructions''?I strongly believe that EVERY SINGLE PERSON IS BEAUTIFUL in their own magical way.What would life be like if we were all the same?Well we wouldn't be humans for sure..more likely robots-with monotone boring lives.Where's the fun there?

You hear,read or you are a part of the public scrutiny whether you or somebody else is too skinny/anorexic,too fat/obese,with too small bust or too big bum,with too much/little of this or that...
These people don't have in mind the background,emotions they're causing-hurting or really anything at all about  the person they're scrutinizing.Skinnier or fuller,round,apple,flat-tomboy,pear shape,petite,muscular and toned or unfit everyone IS beautiful!You just need to learn to embrace it in a best possible way,by dressing flattering clothes for your body shape,feeling confident about yourself and flaunting with what you've got.Cause there is only ONE YOU!!!You are unique just the way you are!!!

If you really want to change something about yourself,don't do it because,and for others..DO IT FOR YOURSELF!If you think you will feel better in your own skin,be more confident,then DO IT!!!
Good health is what we all want,but it is just the matter of time when are we gonna realize how important and crucial it is..If you still haven't had that illuminating moment yet,don't worry just try not to overdo eating junk fast food,sweets and too salty food...because those can cause serous health problems,like SERIOUS!
Eat EVERYTHING you want but in MODERATION.Yeah you heard it dozen of times,but have you really sat down and thought about it?!

So if you want to change unhealthy habits it's not to late!Actually now would be a perfect moment for that!Yes,right now!Don't try to find excuses and postpone it!Don't say tomorrow!Start today...it couldn't be a better opportunity than this.So grab it while you can!Don't just sit,whine,cry and pity yourself.Be brave,find the courage,strength you never thought you had.You will feel way better,stronger,more confident and proud of yourself instantly!I promise!!!You won't see results that fast,it takes time.But be patient and keep reminding yourself of reasons you started exercising and/ eating healthier whenever you want to back down.Try writing those reasons down,and you can write your journey in a diary,keep track of what you're eating.Have a glance at your inspirational pictures...whatever it takes to keep you going.

If working out in gym scares you,bores you easily or you don't have company try working out at home,and every now and then switch up exercises so you don't get bored. Fitnessblender.com is a AMAZING site with all sorts of workout programs you can do at your cozy home.I strongly suggest visiting that site and checking out their YouTube channel as well.

Now I have been skinny all my life...I mean I am 17 so not for THAT long really...I have extremely fast metabolism,like my mum and I am grateful for that so so much!But I wasn't always so satisfied with my body.I wanted to have more curves so badly.I can eat whatever I want as much as I want without gaining any weight.
But I don't!I eat everything,but I try not to eat too much junk food and sweets.I have such a sweet tooth!I cannot function properly if I don't take at least a chocolate per week.I get all moody and grumpy if I don't.I eat it whenever I am stressed out which happens A LOT.I am currently trying to eat sweets every third day and in moderation.Before at times I could take 500 gr. of sweets in ONE day!But that is sooooo UNHEALTHY so I am trying really hard to cut those bad habits.If I don't,my actions will have some serious consequences later in my life-on my health.And I don't want my unconcernedness and lack of interest to affect my life!                                                                        

There is one more thing I wanted to mention.It really affects A LOT even when you call skinny person too skinny.When somebody says to me:''Oh my god you are soo skinny.You should eat something!''-with concerned voice I really feel creeped out,NOT flattered.When you call obese person fat it's not okey but when you call skinny person,that is.Why would it be?!It hurts as much as it would hurt a fuller person for calling her/him fat!Maybe that person is trying to gain weight but just can't.Also maybe a fuller person(sorry if I don't know really how to call people with more weight,I am not trying to be rude or disrespectful in any way,but I just don't put people into categories fat,anorexic...ect. like they are just objects;I look at people differently by their personality,qualities..)anyhow..fuller people aren't that way because they want to.Maybe they have tried to lose weight and look after what they eat even better than you do,but it is just wayyy harder for them to lose weight.Genetics plays a huge role there.So don't judge a book by its cover.Instead of hating,and trying to find things you don't like about somebody,look for thing you do like.Instead of criticizing give a compliment.Instead of a punch give a hug,instead of a stone give a flower.Haha I am sounding like a hippie right now...

Hopefully you enjoyed reading article with my view on weight,beauty,health...I really hope it hasn't bored you to death considering it's quite long.Feel free to post any tips and comments with your point of view on all this.
And here is my fave butt workout video of all time.Short and sweet!Not really!Haha it is super intense so you'll be super fatigued and work-worn.Definitely check out Fitnessblender.com website for amazing workouts and check out this video!

Real Techniques brushes:pure geniousness!

Hello there!Long time no see,right?!Ha!I know,I know...I just can't get around to writing...or doing anything really!
Anyhow today I have an exciting article for you and it's about the Real Techniques brushes!You must have seen a zillion reviews and videos on YouTube but as I was so impressed with them and kept using them religiosly,I had to share my thoughts and experience.

I have the Expert face brush which is the golden handle one.It is meant for liquid foundation and powder.I find it works exceptionally with my liquid foundations(I wanted to say all,but I stopped myself because there are exceptions-like foundation that just works best when applying with hands,no brushes whatsoever because of its texture..but for all other foundations,around 90 %- it will work brilliantly!)

Now here's how it's described on their official website:
Ultra firm and broad for application and blending of cream or liquid foundation:
  • look pixel-perfect even in harsh light
  • ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and
    100% cruelty-free
  • self-standing for easy storage
  • extended aluminum handle is light and easy to use
I just couldn't agree more with these claims.The brush is ultraaaaa soft so you'll find yourself touching your face with brush all the time,that's what I did anyways(sounds kinda creepy now that I read it...haha).This brush,like I said earlier applies liquid foundation wonderfully,glides like a dream,distributes just the right amount of product,makes anything look flawless and seamless and offers you a beautiful buildable pixel perfect coverage.But that isn't everything my lovelies!It works heavenly with cream blush and bronzer but I like using it with powder ones too,for contouring-it's perfect for getting in hollows of your cheeks,or making them if u don't have them like me!It is small,sturdy,really handy,easy to work with and A M A Z I N G quality.No fall outs whatsoever!And lets be honest-you CAN'T beat the price. :DD

they are soo photogenic :)hahaha

Now onto the Starter Set:
Eye definition goes high-definition with this essential set:
  • includes 5 full-size brushes + case:
    • base shadow brush: applies a smooth, flawless foundation of color
    • deluxe crease brush: soft, oversized design for effortless contouring
    • accent brush: designed for precision detailing, spotlighting, highlighting, and smudging
    • pixel-point eyeliner brush: tapered cut is ideal for dense or fine eyeliner application
    • brow brush: distinctive shape easily defines eyebrows
    • panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + stand
  • look pixel-perfect even in harsh light
  • ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free
  • extended aluminum handles are light and easy to use

These have purple handles and you also get a brush case/stand which I found extremely handy since I didn't have one.Magical quality,softness and all that jazz..I didn't like the eyeliner brush because it is not firm as it's supposed to be for dipping in and precisely applying gel eyeliner and creating flicks.So you can just forget about that.You could use it for applying lipstick as a lip pencil but nothing impressive..just okey..However I adore other four brushes.Deluxe crease brush,my personal fave works for me as a crease brush,applying color all over the lid,blending colors,applying concealer on any spots,blending concealer under eyes and contouring my nose.This one is a STEAL!Real multi-tasker.Another amazing one would have to be base shadow brush-applies nicely eyeshadow all over the lid,but I found out just recently how well it works for applying color in the crease with the wider side and then by turning it,for blending everything in.Accent brush is superb for creating the v shape in outer corners of  eyes,applying and smudging shadow under bottom lashes.I use it also when I need precise,fine covering of blemishes and for applying lipstick more naturally-for achieving a more natural coverage and precision also.Brow brush is good but it is also as the eyeliner brush not sturdy enough for precise application and desired crisp brow definition.It is great for just filling in any gaps and you can always make whole appearance of the brows sleeker and neater with a bit of concealer.
Overall great deal for the money-all in one eyes starter kit,though you might reconsider buying another eyeliner brush..

Thanks so much for reading my blog
Hope to see u soon!
