Avocado Hair Mask

DSC_0369

Avocados are full of vitamin E, and B, as well as protein which helps to strengthen your hair. In addition, they’re full of fat, which protects hair from breakage. Honey is incredibly hydrating, to quench the thirst of dry hair, and finally olive oil, again, containing fatty acids, and vitamin E, to make sure your scalp and hair strands are well moisturised. This mask also encourages hair growth, but it’s essentially a great moisture boost, if used weekly. Continue reading

Too much empathy?

DSC_0987

I’ve been empathising and feeling people so much, to the point where I feel that I’m them and it shocks me to feel what they feel. It scares me. My heart feels like it doesn’t belong to me, because it’s filled with the emotions of others, until I wake myself up, and find me, to relocate myself back to me. It opened up my eyes more to what I really want in my life, and not to do what they did. I do it too much. I feel overwhelmed. I love feeling, because to me, they are my experiences. The more I feel, the more I experience. Therefore, I always try to understand others, and feel what they feel. I love it. But recently, I’ve been doing it too much, to the people who are closest to me, to the extent where I’m physically shaking and feel like I have no energy. I prayed, asking God to fill my heart with his love. I felt much better. I don’t know how much is too much. I don’t know if I should continue or stop myself. I feel like it’s a duty that I have. I empathise with everyone, the ‘good’ and ‘bad’, I guess it’s because I have a natural care for people, or that I’m opened to people. There’s no right way or wrong way to do anything. I believe sharing ideas, emotions, and thoughts is the way to being closer together. It’s common ground, rather than distancing ourselves from each other through the increasing barriers between us, when from inside, we all really are the same.

Collagen Maca Smoothie…

This smoothie is protein rich (it contains around 20g of protein, which is about half your recommended daily intake!). It contains collagen, which is beneficial for your skin, providing elasticity and hydration, increases metabolism through improving thyroid function, in addition to strengthening bones and joints, as collagen makes up 90% of bone mass. Another super ingredient in this smoothie is maca, which is an indigenous Peruvian food that helps to boost energy, brain function, and fertility.

12g Hydrolysed Collagen powder

10g Maca powder

1 tbsp Honey

2 Bananas

1 Avocado

A little milk for a thicker smoothie

I added ice cream too!

…Enjoy the yumminess!

My Life Felt like TV…

DSC_0197It just feels so weird when all of a sudden, your life feels like a drama, a movie, a TV series. To the extent where you don’t even know what to feel or what to think any more, because you’ve never experienced such things, you only see them on TV to potentially attract audience. So people watch it and get amused, but when it happens to you, it hits you. You start to think of it like a chess game. What move should I make and what are the consequences of it? To put myself in everybody else’s shoes and think what’s the best decision for all of us. To fully think with the mind of that person. And to think that you have the power to change it all, to turn everything upside down, to experience the tough consequences, but it should all add up to form a bigger picture, in the long term, to something positive and meaningful. But thinking in the short term, makes it dominate your mind and lets nervousness run through you. Feeling vulnerable. Feeling hurt. But feeling powerful, because it’s in my hands. I try to take a mental break from it, but even when I sleep, I’m dreaming it. I don’t know what to do. I decide to wait a bit and see what fate brings, but look at every moment that passes with doubt, wondering if I should have done something.

This is how I felt a while ago, now things are cooler, and not as heated up. And what happened at the end was okay, but I know that it’s not the end. It’s like a roller coaster going up and down, but now I have a better, clearer picture of what to do when it shoots up again.
