HOW TO MAKE YOUR HAIR GROW FASTER!

Hey everyone!!!!!!!! 
Is your hair taking forever to grow?
You have tried everything you can possibly find and nothing seems to be working?
Well then, I have a solution for you!

PEPPERMINT OIL!!!!!

.




For those who personally know me, you know how short my hair used to be. I had a boy-cut back in high school and I hated it. I wanted my hair to grow back super fast and I wanted it so badly to the point where I tried everything including oils, home-made hair treatments, and banning myself from using my flat-iron. Nothing worked! One day, when I was at Bulk Barn, I saw this bad boy sitting on the shelf along with other natural hair products. I told myself I was not going to buy it because it probably won't work! I went home that day (without buy it) and decided to do some research regarding the enticing item I had just spotted. I found things like: 

1) Peppermint oil stimulates blood flow to your scalp and makes your hair grow faster
2) Peppermint oil is used for massages and provides a cooling sensation
3) Perppermint oil is a antiseptic (prevents infection by inhibiting bacterial growth)
4) Peppermint oil is great for acne and blemishes

After reading about it, I decided to buy it!

How to use it:
1) You can mix it in your favorite hair oil (almond oil, coconut oil, olive oil...etc)
2) Mix your favorite hair oil and half a teaspoon of peppermint oil (That's enough, trust me!) together
3) Massage it into your scalp
4) You will feel a cooling effect (love it)
5) Let the oil absorb in your roots for about 2 hours (you can go to bed with it and wash your hair in the morning)
6) Wash your hair thoroughly and massage your scalp as you're washing your hair


That's it! Let me know how it turns out for you! Good Luck! <3 :)

St.Paddy's Day Night Out

St. Patrick's Day!!

Last night for Saint Patrick's Day, I went out to celebrate with my family and friends. We went out for drinks (green beer) and had a fabulous time! I tried green beer for the first time ever and I must say I am not really a fan of it. I like my regular beer without any food colouring. Also, I had my all time favourite drink: Gin and Tonic. Overall, it was a great night and we had so much fun conversing, catching up, being silly and of course, dancing.

REVIEW: NAKED 2 Palette

I have just recently purchased a naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay. I can honestly say it is an amazing palette if you love wearing neutral eye make up. It has 10 neutral colors and you can play around with them and create different kind of neutral looks. What I love most about this palette is that it has a combination of matte. shimmer and glitter textures which makes it easier to add different textures to your eye make up. My favorite color is verve because it has a slight shade of purple which makes it not too neutral and not too vibrant. I highly recommend this product if you're looking for a palette with neutral colors. I would rate this product 9/10.

IT ALSO COMES WITH A MINI LIP GLOSS! sweeeet!


The brush that comes with palette is amazing because it is a double-ended full size brush. One is a crease brush and the other is a shadow brush.

OCC LIP TAR REVIEW


For the past few weeks or so, I have been hearing about the OCC Lip tar everywhere. I was intrigued by the product and wanted to try it out myself. I received my OCC lip tar package in the mail today (yipeee!) and as soon as I got my hands on them, I wanted to try it out. I tried all the colors and mixed them to form darker and lighter shades and played around with it for a bit. I can absolutely say I am in love with them! The colors are wonderful, vibrant and perfect for the spring. I will definitely be wearing them a lot this season. My favorite is the bright vibrant pink!


LIGHTER PINK SHADE!!

Outfit Post #1


I had always thought I would be pursuing a career in the fine arts because that's where my passion resides. However, I decided to give nursing a try and hide my passion for dance and fashion somewhere deep down my heart. Now, being a nursing student, as much as I love my program, some things did not feel right within me. Seeing my mom, who is a seamstress, work on different outfits and pieces, I was inspired by her talent to reignite my passion for designing and making clothes. I decided to put my imagination at use by pursuing my passion as a treasured hobby.

This is what I wore a few days ago and I want to share this outfit post with you to give you an idea of my style.

Black long-sleeved top: Urban Outfitters
Velvet Tights: Forever  21
Shoes: ALDO shoes

HEALTHY OATMEAL PANCAKES


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you will be surprised how much eating breakfast daily does to your body mentally, physically and emotionally. Back in High school, I never paid much attention to eating breakfast daily and it made me gain a lot of weight because I would starve myself in the morning and later in the afternoon when I come home from school, I would binge on everything I found in the kitchen until my hunger eased. After I graduated from high school, I really started thinking about my body and most importantly how I wanted to feel mentally and emotionally. That's when I made my decision to change my sedentary lifestyle forever. 

Now, enough about my boring past, I would like to share one of my favorite pancake recipes that is both delicious and healthy. It has all of the ingredients that aid in fat loss while making you feel great every morning! 

Ingredients ( makes about 4-5 small pancakes)
1/2 CUP - Oatmeal
2 Whole eggs ( you can substitute one egg for egg whites)
1/8 CUP  - Almond Milk
2 Sachets Stevia
1 tsp Cinnamon 
1/2 tsp Baking Powder

Mix all of the ingredients together until the batter is smooth and pour the batter on a skillet greased with olive oil/coconut oil! That's it! 
NOTE- you can add a tsp of water if the batter  is too thick!

NOW FOR THE TOPPING
A healthier alternative for maple syrup.
1) grab some blueberries and smash them in a bowl with a spoon 
2) Mix the blueberries with Greek yogurt 
3) Add some Chia seeds 

It's ready to go! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know in the comments how it turned out for you! oxo <3
