My favorite beauty Treatment with lemon

I am the type of girl who doesn’t like to go after creams we see on television and magazines promising to make your skin more elastic, get rid of wrinkles (I have none), and etc, not only because I know how this kind of industry and works and because when you buy something like this, mainly from famous brands, you are paying more than it’s worth because of the name of the brand and also because of the celebrity they picked to make the propaganda.

I think save money is important, and I love everything that’s homemade, mainly crafts and creams, it’s like: It’s not the brand I am after.

I have found many great things online that we can easily make at home with low cost, large quantity and i am sure with more satisfying results, and I will tell the one I am enjoying, currently, the most.

You know that lemon and honey are two good things for health and skin as well, but we must ALWAYS be careful when we add lemon to something you will put on your skin, mainly if you will go out later, so the best is do this on a day you won’t go out or by the night.

you will need: one tablespoon of honey and lemon.

you mix everything and you leave on your skin for about 5 minutes, or a little bit more if you want to, and after that, you wash your face with warm water and you apply some moisturizing cream.

you will see the difference in the right moment you dry your face, you will feel your skin softer, and you will also see it looks totally clean, i can even say…  more radiant.

Now, that’s something I don’t do everyday, but twice a week, because I don’t know if it would be good you do this everyday, maybe it is ok… maybe not recommended, but that’s one of the things that I really liked to read about and try because I’m not regretting.

 

I really think that’s a lot better you find good alternatives for things and if you can save money, you must do this.

Go to the store and buy an expensive cream when you can make your own for a low price, and that will work better than the one you bought at the store and you will have fun preparing it, is wonderful, same thing with toothpaste, shampoo and etc. You can make all these things and start making money with them.

I watched on TV, an interview with a girl, I forgot her name, that she is eco-friendly, she likes to make her own creams, toothpastes, shampoos instead buying them. Not talking about you go to the extreme for saving money, but if you can give up on going to the store and buying something like this and make your own, that’s a good thing that’s going to save you money in the end of the month, so you can use it on other things.

 

A funny fact about me, related on this treatment is that I don’t like honey… I don’t stand the taste of it and sometimes I end up tasting it, but sometimes we do must make sacrifices.

Current Music: Paramore – My Heart

I am finding out that maybe I was wrong
That I’ve fallen down and I can’t do this alone

Stay with me, this is what I need, please?

Sing us a song and we’ll sing it back to you
We could sing our own but what would it be without you?

I am nothing now and it’s been so long
Since I’ve heard the sound, the sound of my only hope

This time I will be listening.

Sing us a song and we’ll sing it back to you
We could sing our own but what would it be without you?

This heart, it beats, beats for only you
This heart, it beats, beats for only you

This heart, it beats, beats for only you
My heart is yours

This heart, it beats, beats for only you
My heart is yours
(My heart, it beats for you)

This heart, it beats, beats for only you (It beats, beats for only you)
My heart is yours (My heart is yours)

This heart, it beats, beats for only you (Please don’t go now, please don’t fade away)
My heart, my heart is yours (Please don’t go now, please don’t fade away)

(Please don’t go now, please don’t fade away) My heart is yours
(Please don’t go now, please don’t fade away) My heart is yours
(Please don’t go, please don’t fade away)
(Please don’t go now, please don’t fade away) My heart is…

Just sharing a music that I am listening in the moment, and has been added to my playlist yesterday.

I am truly bewitched by this music.

Two more Columbine Flowers

These two flowers I drew today, and both are Columbines.

I  am so fascinated with these flowers that I don’t feel like I have inspiration to draw any other flower, but I need keep trying other type of flowers and things, but my inspiration today pointed, once again, towards this flower.

This time, I decided post part of the progress of my drawings. The last one (The purple), I enjoyed more because I could try different shades and make it look a little bit more realistic than the first flower (real colors of the flower).

A new Step on Drawings: two beautiful flowers

 

I love everything related to Art, I always did, since I was a child, and lately I’ve been dedicating more time on my drawings and paintings as well.

Mostly, I’d draw on the paper, and paint on the photoshop because I’m not that good on painting, I always tried to do my best, but I never achieved the result that I’d see on those Youtube tutorials about how drawing and painting with normal colored pencils, so I used the photoshop instead.

But the fact is that, a couple weeks ago, I decided to start practicing more on coloring on the paper, even if it would not go the way I expected it to, after all,nobody can achieve a certain level without training and dealing with some frustrations.

These are 2 drawings that, I personally loved!

when I finished coloring them, I thought that maybe my “place”, would be drawing flowers, once it was easier for me to color them.

I know they don’t look 100% like i expected them too, like an actual photograph, but I felt so satisfied with how it turned out, that I not only decided to keep them forever, but also share.

I am an amateur on this, I had some courses when I was at elementary school, and that was it, so I am not good on drawing people, like, giving that realistic look, as well as flowers and etc, but art is something that comes from you, and there is someone who will always identify with your type of art and interpretation as well, even if it doesn’t look 100%.

This is the second drawing that I’ve made (I want to leave my favorite one as last).

The actual photograph is of a rose that’s white with some pink parks, I ended up making this rose yellow with some pink parts and also added some white.

That was the first time I colored a rose on the paper, and I really liked the final result.

As you can see, I’m not still that good on the coloring, but practice makes it perfect.

My mother liked so much that she said I should actually paint this on a canvas.

 

This one is my favorite one ever, not only for the final result of the drawing, but also because that’s my favorite flower ever: The Columbine.

I really, really, really, loved the final result of this art because I got to create that depth effect without even waiting for such thing, so I really felt amazed by this particular drawing.

This drawing inspired me on trying to draw that rose and color it as well, but for me, that’s my favorite one, the one that turned out to be the way I expected it.

The Columbine comes in many colors, it’s really a such beautiful flower, and even though pink isn’t my favorite color, I painted this one pink because I wanted to start with something angelical, something that would be easier and as a test as well.

 

Probably my next drawing will be another Columbine, and I shall pass it to the Canvas as well, because I want this hanging on my wall, like I have few arts of mine.
