savarnasmantra.jimdofree.comChange Your Healthy/Beautiful BrowYou want to change your looks? Then beautify your eyebrows!! A well groomed and a well shaped, healthyeyebrow makes a tremendous difference in one’s appearance. It is that one beauty essential that, in my opinion, no woman should overlook. I am not sure why some women resist getting their striking eyebrows done. I think some of us might feel that it is a vain indulgence to pluck or wax their gorgeouseyebrows. Others might see it as a waste of time and money. Or perhaps still others see doing their captivating eyebrows as time-consuming and perhaps even impossible to keep up with at home. Once again, in my opinion, I think nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, having well-groomed eyebrows may mean that you have to tweeze a few stray hairs once a day, but overall having well-maintained, bewitching eyebrows improves your appearance tremendously. So I think it is worth all the time and effort. Should You Always Go to a Professional? Though one of the things that I do as an aesthetician is shape, wax, and tweeze people’s charmingeyebrows. But I actually don’t think that you always need a professional’s help to groom your engaging eyebrows. If you’ve never had your enticing eyebrows shaped or its been a long time since you did, I think it will be worth to go to an aesthetician to have them shape your brows. Then you can easily maintain the shape on your own at home. Important Tip: If you do go to a professional to get your brows done – Speak up! I actually had a client the other day who came for a delightfuleyebrow wax. She immediately told me exactly how she wanted her brows to look, and I really appreciated her input. I actually always ask my clients to tell me exactly how they want their brows to look, and then I stop at least once or twice while I am doing their brows to show them their new appearance, this way we can consult. I do this because frankly everyone has a completely different idea of how their brows should look and what constitutes a beautiful eyebrow. Just because I think someone’s brows should look a certain way doesn’t mean that my client want their brows to look that way. In my opinion whoever is doing the make-up for the ads is hitting a home run every time) Some professionals are really amazing at doing brows and have based their entire careers around it – for instance, SavarnasBeautySpa. And some women prefer to only let a professional touch their brows since they understand what a positive impact their brows will have on their appearance. That is entirely up to you. But if you want to try shaping and maintaining your brows at home read the tips and resources as given below. Going It Alone: How To Do Your Brows At Home If you want to attempt to shape or just maintain your brows at home there are plenty of resources out there to help you. When you are doing your brows at home have the following tools in hand: A pair of small scissors A disposable mascara brush A white eyeliner pencil – buy the cheapest one you can find A tweezer Make sure you are in a location at home that has good lights, so you don’t need to squint too much to see your brows. Don’t do your brows with a magnifying beauty mirror! The chances are, you’ll over pluck them if you are front of a magnifying mirror. Be sure to stop, step back, and check your progress throughout the process. And take your time – though lovely eyebrow hair grows back eventually this isn’t a process where you want to rush. Everyone who wants to teach you how to shape your brows on your own is going to show you the three points that you need to look for in order to create the right shape for your brows. See the illustrations below: Filling in Your Brows Personally, I have too much hair everywhere on my body except for my eyebrows. Go figure. So I fill in my eyebrows every morning with eyebrow powder. I use SavarnasMantra though there are many, many more eyebrowpowdersandproducts out there to choose from. If you are going to use a powder, I suggest applying it with a very small, angled eyeliner brush. I use a brush that I have from a kit of travel size, mini brushes. You could use an eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows as well. If you have unruly brows, use a tinted or clear gel to set your brows. One last note – if your brows don’t turn out exactly how you want them to look don’t panic – they will grow back and then you can try again.1

champagnecoloredglasses.com10 Self-Care Ideas To Combat Stress · Champagne Colored GlassesI am hardly an expert when it comes to this field. I’m not a psychology major and I didn’t take courses on this subject, but I’ve had some pretty big life experiences that have definitely been stressful and anxiety inducing causing me to find ways to cope. I have spent a large amount of time looking in to new ways that can help alleviate stress because let’s face it, us moms definitely have our hands full. Couple that with work, deadlines, difficult situations and everything else you have piled up, and you have the perfect recipe for stress! I think everyone deals with this differently and for that reason, I have put together my favorite 10 self-care ideas that I have used to help me combat stress and anxiety for Monday Motivation. I hope you find something here that resonates with you and that you try it yourself! As a mom, I often put myself last in the list of priorities. Sometimes putting yourself first can be beneficial and NEEDED in order to continue to be that badass that you are. Often, a little time to yourself can refresh and recharge you enough to get rid of that looming cloud called stress. So let’s get started…… 1. Read Inspirational Quotes This might sound cheesy or you might be thinking, “Ok, girlfriend, this isn’t going to calm my nerves.” However, for me, this helps tremendously. I literally wake up Monday morning (and several other mornings during the week) get myself an iced coffee and sit on the couch reading my favorite quotes. Not only does this help clear my head, it helps pump me up for the week. I become motivated to get my butt in gear. This is also something that really helped me pull myself out of a bad head space when dealing with the complications from my surgeries. I can’t recommend this tip enough. 2. Meditate Sometimes being able to break away for a few minutes by yourself just to deep breathe and sit in silence can be the best therapy. Have 4 crazy kids running around? Go sit in the dark closet for a few minutes and just be. I am being completely honest when I say I have done this and I have no shame! 3. Go For A Walk Walking is a great idea to help clear your mind and refresh and focus. I am not a big gym person and I can’t exactly run or jog anymore, so walking is my go to when I need a break. Getting fresh air is important. Find a place you can walk that inspires you like a pretty park, or lake, etc. For me, seeing nature in all its glory really helps. 4. Pamper Yourself Ok, ladies, this one is huge in my book. Nothing beats getting your nails done or popping in for a massage. Obviously, when you have a busy schedule, these types of appointments are not always on your radar. However, it’s super important to treat yourself. I purposely drive an hour away to spend the day in the city to get my hair done. Yup, I said it! I sing at the top of my lungs in the car, walk to a French bakery for my coffee and chocolate croissant and then get my hair done for 2 hours. It’s glorious! Now granted, I only do this twice a year, but it’s something I soooo look forward to and makes me happy. 5. Take a Yoga Class Like ballet, yoga is a great exercise to help get you in tune with your body and mind. Worried to try a class because you are a beginner? Many studios have beginner classes to start in. 6. Find A New Hobby Have you ever wanted to learn how to sew? Or paint? Anything? Just do it! Whether it’s drawing or gardening, find a hobby you have always wanted to take up and just begin! For me, blogging was a hobby I began to help with the stress over my looming surgeries. Then, it became my way to cope with what happened to me during those surgeries. I am so passionate about blogging and writing for this very reason. 7. Keep A Journal Writing is a great way to get your thoughts and emotions out on paper. Sometimes, I like to jot things down in my notebook or even my notes app on the iPhone. This has been one of the more powerful ways for me to deal with stress and anxiety thus far. 8. Visualizations Imagine yourself achieving goals like becoming healthier and more relaxed. Visualize yourself happy and stress free. I know, I know, easier said than done. Did you know, visualizing yourself doing well on certain activities or tasks can actually functions like physical practice? Try it out and let me know how it worked for you! 9. Listen to Music With being the creative person I am, I love to sing and dance. Whenever I am feeling down or sad, I put my headphones in and listen to my favorite songs. When I was in the hospital, I listened to music most of the time. I chose positive songs about strength and fighting for it to help pump me up. I also put music on when I am doing chores or work and it instantly helps perk me up for the tasks at hand. 10. Get Yourself Organized This may sometimes feel like a daunting task. Honestly, I DREAD getting organized. However, once it’s done, I instantly feel less stressed out. Pick one area to organize and get to it. Organize something simple like your clothing drawers, or your work desk. Start small and work your way up. Today, I organized all 10 piles of laundry and put the kids clothes in specific drawers. Sure, it will probably be messed up by this time next week, and I’ll have to do it all over again, but for now, it’s organized and I feel great! Decluttering and organizing is not only removing some of those jobs off your full plate, but it helps destress you as well. Heck, put on some music and dance around while you are doing it. Well, that’s it for Monday Motivation. I hope some of these self-care techniques or ideas help you to be the best version of yourself! Outfit details below! Related1
