hottest afro braids

Summer is all about sea and beaches and hot weather and hair easily gets damaged by sun and salty seawater and hot winds. I am looking for some way to get an easy and stylish hairdo that won’t have me wasting loads of time with blowdryer, flatirons and hairpins. I did my research and found the perfect answer for me – braided hairstyle. So here are some cutest afro braids to try this summer

Well today I was feeling I wanna try something new and sweet for my dessert. So I googled how to cook brownies and here we are –  a wonderful recipe of how you do those fantastic yet simple to cook brownies. The guy on the video explains everything so thoroughly it’s easy even for a firsttimer like me)))) BTW I like that trick with putting the mass on a paper – you don’t have to wash the tray. Really great for a lazy housewife like me ))

Are there any simple recipes that you use? let’s share)

my diet for pregnancy

Sorry for not having posted for so long. The reason is I am pregnant and cannot spend much time at my computer 🙂

The last ultrasound showed that my baby is a bit bigger than he should be and my obstetrician said that I’m growing a hamster :))

and she said I had to diet (( I have never ever practiced dieting before, with my perfect slender constitution (shy that I am 😉 )…

Now that she put restrictions to what I eat, I feel so depressed and I want all those “outlawed” items all the more.

The rules are quite simple: I shouldn’t eat candies and sweets, pastry, pasta, rice and fatty items. If I want meat or fish, it must not be fat. I must eat only brown bread, not the wheat flour bread. What surprised me most were the fruits restricted – banana, melons and !apples! – as they provoke faster weight growth…

All in all I am in 9th month now and feel fine… except for swelling of my feet, which is getting better now thanx to the weather getting cooler. And the terrible problem with spots – due to the hormones, I comfort myself that they will go away as soon as I deliver… fingers crossed )))

PS my little one is kicking right now, guess he wants to say ‘Hello, world!’ :))))

pregnancy changes

pregnant woman
Pregnancy affects every part of your body—from your hair to your toenails. Here’s what to expect and what to do about it.

Your breasts. Early in your pregnancy they will feel tender and may be larger. As the pregnancy progresses and your breasts prepare for breastfeeding, they get even bigger and may leak an early form of milk called colostrum. Make sure you wear a well-fitting bra that provides both comfort and support. If your breasts are tender, ask your partner not to touch them.

Congestion. The higher blood volume of pregnancy can lead to congestion and runny noses. Try using a saline spray to clear out the mucus, or a neti pot, a small device available in health food stores that squirts water through your nose.

Frequent urination. If you know the location of every bathroom between your house, the supermarket, work and the mall, don’t despair. Your blood volume increases during pregnancy, putting increased pressure on your kidneys. Plus, later in pregnancy the weight of the baby on your bladder increases the pressure, making you feel like you always have to go. Continue reading “pregnancy changes”

eyebrow shapes for all faceshapes

To make a round face appear less round by making the face appear longer apply lines that go more up and down the face. This helps draw the eye up and down and lengthens it. Create as high an arch as you can. Get a brow shape that  follows a straight line to the peak of the brow, and creates more vertical lines. Stay away from a rounded brow shape. This makes a round face look even more round. Many customers prefer the soft angled look. Consider also the angled brow shapes and the higher arches

When you have a heart faceshape you can soften your look with curves and create a beautiful heart shape using the point of your chin as the heart bottom and the brows as the top of the heart.
Try rounded brows. The curve of the brow is soft, feminine and attractive and also creates the heart like look of the face.
A low arch round brow creates a natural look. A high arch round brow adds length to a shorter heart faceshape.

In square faces a square jaw is a strong feature. Balance it with a strong brow or soften it with curves.
A thicker stronger color and shape balances a heavier jawline. A defined sharp peak at the top of the brow makes the brow appear stronger.
Angled brows create this balance.
