7 Awesome Tips For Natural Beauty

We are constantly spammed with different advertising messages. We look up to role models, Hollywood and music stars often trying to mimic their appearance and improve our looks even if it means doing cosmetic surgeries.

However, the truth of the matter is that you should feel comfortable within your skin. Everything you do in life, you need to do to improve yourself; not only to satisfy your ego. This is the only way you can truly be happy. So, the next time you sit in front of your Hollywood mirror, make sure that the person looking at you is the person you want it to be.

Natural Beauty

 Here are some tips that will help you do it: 
  1. Make an important decision
    If you wish to change your mentality and properly take care of yourself, the best way to do it is by making an important decision. This will mark the new beginning for you. No longer should you be concerned with others and the way they look. Instead, make sure to place focus inwards, to your own beauty and being.

  2.  Discover your own tempo
    A lot of young women tend to follow their partner’s tempo, often forgetting their needs in the process. Make sure to find yourself. Reserve some time for beauty; for small things such as manicure and hair treatment. This will definitely make you happy. And through happiness, your inner beauty can shine the most.

  3. Dress accordingly
     Your dress shouldn’t be a reflection of current trends. Instead, you should use it as a way to complement your personality. Now, I am not saying that you shouldn’t have any formal clothing. I am just saying that you should cut yourself loose from time to time and show your true face through dresses and t-shirts. Create a persona that will look gorgeous in any type of a mirror.

  4. Feel comfortable
    The best thing you can do for yourself is to feel comfortable. This refers to your clothing, make-up and generally, the way you present yourself in public. There is no real reason to constantly wear heavy make-up as a way to impress. Instead, adapt it according to your needs and wants. Do things that will make you feel relaxed and at ease.

  5. Fixing your hair
    We are often impressed with haircuts and styles which we see in fashion magazines. Most of these styles take a lot of time to perfect. Truth of the matter is that most women will not feel comfortable wearing them. Instead of chasing after trends, let your hair loose. Like with other things, be sure to feel comfortable and satisfied with your hair no matter how it looks. Natural solutions are the way to go. Heavy dye and combing can only ruin it in the long run.

  6. Protecting your skin
    It is ok to get some sunlight. But, you shouldn’t overdo it. Prolonged exposure will dry out your skin destroying it in the process. Similar to hair, this can have disastrous long-term consequences for the tissue. Whenever you’re out in the sun, make sure to use a sunscreen. Also, make sure to avoid tanning parlors.

  7. Make sure to eat adequately
    Food is the most important and frequently neglected factor that affects our beauty. By eating properly, you are feeding your cells with valuable matter that will improve your appearance. Make sure to avoid candies, junk food and too much alcohol and red meat. By following these simple steps, you will do wonders for your beauty. 
We are wrongfully taught that cosmetic products and fancy clothing can improve our appearance. The matter of fact is; you can do much more by opting for natural solution and just preserving the beauty which was given to you on birth.

Hopefully these tips will lead you during the process.

Miraculous! Simply The Best! Now In #Canada

Get ready to bug out with two new super heroes! The exciting new CGI animated TV series Miraculous™: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir is coming to DVD in Canada on February 7, 2017, from Shout! Kids, in collaboration with ZAG. The release features seven incredible episodes, bonus features like interviews with creators and animations tricks, and a French language track – très bon! Wildly successful on Nickelodeon in the United States, and now airing on the Family Channel and YTV in Canada, its legions of fans worldwide know that Miraculous™: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir is superhero super fun.

Miraculous in Canada DVD

When we first watched Miraculous series, we loved them so much, even one episode was enough to catch our attention and make us curious what is next. Ladybug & Cat Noir complement each other and ready to help in difficult situations happening across the city.

Marinette and Adrien, two seemingly normal kids  live what appears to be an ordinary teen life in Paris with daily encounters that create amusing circumstances in school,  with friends, family, and even with strangers. But when the evil Hawk Moth threatens their beloved city of Paris, they transform into the superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir using super powers gained with the help of their magical friends. Hawk Moth is using his evil energy to transform normal people into super villains, so our two heroes need to use all their skills to defeat him.

We watched together with Teddy the episodes. The DVD starts with Adrien's Birthday and what happens during this special day,  Mr. Pigeon episode is the funniest one. It was nice to see familiar Paris spots like The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris and Champs Elysées.

Becoming Ladybug is a complicated process. First, Marinette needs a "Kwami," which is a tiny magical assistant (called Tikki). She also needs a "Miraculous," which is a magical accessory (her special pair of earrings). Tikki uses the Miraculous to transform Marinette, but her Ladybug super powers only work for a limited time! It is a good thing that she gets a little help from her superhero partner, Cat Noir even though she insists she doesn't need him.

If only she knew Cat Noir's true identity – her school crush, Adrien! It will take a lot – friendship, teamwork and skill – to outwit Hawk Moth. Will Ladybug and Cat Noir be able to balance their double lives and keep Paris safe? Will they ever find out each other's true identity? Shiny, brave and funny, Ladybug & Cat Noir are a great team.

Teddy Pinocchio Signature Collection

Based on an 1800s story by Carlo Collodi, it stars Jiminy Cricket (voiced by Cliff Edwards) as a vagabond insect who spends a rainy night at the shop of toymaker Geppetto. The Blue Fairy brings a marionette to life after Geppetto wishes on a star for a son, and Jiminy Cricket is appointed the new boy's conscience. He has a devil of a time keeping up as Pinocchio is willingly lured through various forms of temptation, the most frightening of which leads him to Pleasure Island, where he drinks, smokes, and is almost turned into a jackass. This sequence, as well as Pinocchio's brave rescue of Geppetto from the belly of a whale, ranks among the most memorable story in animation history.

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life Now Available on Blu-ray Giveaway (CAN)

Holidays are over and with some excitement and unwillingness at the same time kids are heading back to school. But fun is not over because "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life"  is now available Blu-ray! Based off the New York Times bestselling novel series, Middle School follows Rafe as he attempts to keep his sanity by breaking every single school rule while dealing with the awkwardness of adolescence, bullying and family issues.

Middle School

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life chronicles the trials and triumphs of Rafe Khatchadorian, as he uses his wits to battle bullies, hormones and the tyrannical, test-obsessed Principal Dwight. Rafe has an epic imagination...and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to an oppressive, rule-crazy middle school.

Drowning in do's and don'ts, Rafe and his scheming best friend Leo hatch a plan to break every rule in the school's Code of Conduct. It's Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, striking back at the rulebreakers. Meanwhile, Rafe struggles to hide his misbehavior from Jeanne, the straight-A, overachieving girl of his dreams, and at home, his mother's boyfriend -- a moochy, jack-of-no-trades named Bear -- threatens to become his stepfather. Rafe's revolution leaps from the page to the screen in this ambitious live-action/animated comedy based on the New York Times bestseller "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life" by legendary novelist James Patterson.
