Busy, busy and busy

Hello, dear people! I have to recognize that I missed you and the WordPress Platform. It’s been such a crazy week that I did not even had time for myself or the blog. How have you been?

I am not finding excuses for not showing up, but my work load got each day more and more heavy and I wanted to get things done. In all this rush I kind of struggled between work and family, wanting to be there in the same time. But you can’t have it all, right?

In the meantime I managed to get a little bit ill, because of the stress and many working hours, not sleeping more than 5-6 hours per night and so on. A flu might follow me on the way, but I believe it’s the fatigue accumulated along the week that is weakening my body.

Yesterday I had to rush to my grandmother feast, as it has been 40 days already since she passed away. It was kind of a roller coaster with emotions and tears, cold and hurrying.

Even if it is Sunday, I am still at work this end of the week. I can’t wait for the prolonged weekend that will arrive in hope that I will get better rest and maybe click a quick refresh button. But I know that it is only Sunday, and tomorrow will bring a new week with new challenges and storms to pass.

In the less time that I have for me while running to places I get doped with sad and depressive songs. But I just don’t feel like listening to joyful music, I don’t have the energy and spirit.

At the end of the day my head is killing me, my all body is aching and I just wish to go home. I am only praying to God to provide me with enough strength so that I can pass these harsh days and wait for the best to come.

Today is Monday, again. And what a great opportunity to start a new journey and reinvent yourself?

“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t ‘should’ve’ done something. You can only do something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!“ – Steve Maraboli

Decisions as I go, to anywhere I flow
Sometimes I believe, at times I’m rational
I can fly high, I can go low
Today I got a million, tomorrow I don’t know

Decisions as I go, to anywhere I flow
Sometimes I believe, at times I’m rational
I can fly high, I can go low
Today I got a million, tomorrow, I don’t know

Stop claiming what you own, don’t think about the show
We’re all playing the same game, laying down alone
We’re unknown and known, special and a clone
Hate will make you cautious, love will make you glow

Make me feel the warm, make me feel the cold
It’s written in our story, it’s written on the walls
This is our call, we rise and we fall
Dancin’ in the moonlight, don’t we have it all?

Decisions as I go, to anywhere I flow

Today I got a million, tomorrow, I don’t know

Make me feel the warm, make me feel the cold
It’s written in our story, it’s written on the walls
This is our call, we rise and we fall
Dancin’ in the moonlight, don’t we have it all?

Why is important to clean makeup brushes

Makeup brushes ensure flawless and seamless makeup, whether we are talking about a natural or an occasion, intense makeup.

It is extremely important to maintain a certain hygiene of the brushes to create a quality makeup and to avoid the appearance of pimples or other affections of the skin of the face.

Makeup brushes collect sebum, dust, dead cells and residues of cosmetics in their strands.

Make-up brushes should be cleaned at least every two weeks. A brush loaded with product and used daily without being cleansed aggravates the skin and prevents the uniform application of the cosmetic product on the skin.

To see exactly what a dirty brush contains, samples were taken in the laboratory. Staphylococcus Aureus was one of the microorganisms identified in the sample.

De ce este important sa curatam pensulele de machiaj

Pensulele de machiaj asigura un machiaj impecabil si fara cusur, fie ca vorbim de un machiaj natural sau de unul de ocazie, intens.

Este extrem de important sa pastram o anumita igiena a pensulelor pentru a crea un machiaj de calitate si a evita aparitia cosurilor sau a altor afectiuni ale pielii fetei.

Pensulele de machiaj colecteaza in firele lor sebum, praf, celule moarte si resturi de produse cosmetice.

Pensulele de machiaj trebuie curatate la interval de doua saptamani, cel putin. O pensula incarcata de produs si utilizata zilnic fara a fi curatata agreseaza tenul si impiedica aplicarea uniforma a produsului cosmetic pe piele.

Pentru a vedea exact ce contine o pensula murdara, s-au preelevat probe in laborator. Staphylococcus Aureus a fost unul dintre microorganismele identificate in proba.

Acest microorganism poate cauza numeroase afectiuni la nivelul pielii, provocand dermatita atopica si infectii in organism.

Cum sa speli corect pensulele si bureteii de machiaj

Pentru curatarea in profunzime a bureteilor de machiaj si a pensulelor se recomanda un sapun antibacterian lichid ce impiedica dezvoltarea germenilor.

Spalarea pensulelor mai necesita si un brush cleaner care se pulverizeaza pe pensule si care apoi se sterge cu un servetel uscat.

In procesul de curatare a pensulelor, in apa utilizata se poate adauga si un strop de ulei esential de arbore de ceai ce dezinfecteaza si confera o aroma placuta.

Temperatura de spalare a pensulelor si a bureteilor de machiaj trebuie sa fie ridicata, deoarece apa fierbinte impreuna cu sapunul antibacterian ajuta la dizolvarea si indepartarea produsului.

Pentru o spalare minutioasa a pensulelor, se respecta urmatorii pasi:

  • Se uda firele de par ale pensulei, se pune un bob de sapun antibaterian in palma si se maseaza zona cu ajutorul pensulelor.
  • Pensulele se clatesc cu apa calduta, dupa care se scutura pentru a indeparta apa in exces.

Pentru uscarea ulterioara a pensulelor se utilizeaza un prosop special, pufos care absoarbe foarte bine apa din pensule.

De asemenea, se recomanda si curatarea portfardurilor, a cutiilor si sertarelor pentru machiaj pentru un proces de infrumusetare sigur si curat.

Alternative ale sapunului antibacterian, in cazul in care nu avem la indemana ar putea fi si: otetul, detergentul de vase, apa micelara, sampon de bebelusi, Alcool Izopropilic.

Cand este recomandat sa imi schimb pensulele de machiaj?

In mod normal, pensulele ar trebui utilizate pentru 4-5 luni, insa depinde foarte mult de rezistenta perilor din pensulele utilizate. In momentul in care cad perii din pensula si acestia poseda un miros neplacut este clar ca trebuie sa ne gandim la achizitionarea altor pensule.

Voi cat de des va curatati pensulele si bureteii de machiaj?

Versuri „Bine indispus”, The Motans

Azi sunt bine indispus
Deranjez, dar nu ma scuz
Sunt tristo-vesel nu-stiu-cum
Dau iar adevarul cu parfum

Fericirea-i un truc magic
N-astept sa mi-l faca soarta
Dau paharul peste cap
Si rostesc abracadabra

Toarna, toarna, sa-mi dai
De fapt, toarna tot ce ai
Toarna, toarna mai mult
Pe toate am sa le duc

Simt ca parca am uitat
Unde ma-ndreptam de fapt
Calea-i dreapta-n in urma mea
Inima, ea doar inainte vrea

Toate felinarele
Acum ard doar pentru mine
Ma intreb oare cat mi-o veni
Factura la lumina

Toarna, toarna, sa-mi dai
De fapt, toarna tot ce ai
Toarna, toarna mai mult
Pe toate am sa le duc

Trecutul nu era trecut in calendar
Pe ziua de azi aveam
Alte chestii in program
Da, stiu, stiu, stiu
Ca sunt bine indispus
Dar raman pe drumul meu
Cu pasul drept si capul sus
Asa ca

Toarna, toarna, sa-mi dai
De fapt, toarna tot ce ai
Toarna, toarna mai mult
Pe toate am sa le duc…
