Salad everyday!

9d0f3b0b38644e9613adf7a636c1068e

Am  I a veggie lover? Not at all. From my childhood I always tried to avoid vegetables and jump into the bowl of proteins like meat, fish or carbs. Any junk or unhealthy food always used to attract me and still it does. We are lucky that we have our parents specially mom who takes care of proper diet and fight to feed us vegetables in any form even though we do our best to escape. But as we grow up most of us get blessed with the sense of healthy diet. Specially when we live far away from our parents and miss them so much then we recall their advises more often and act accordingly.

Now I get surprise each day when I go to supermarkets and buy tons of vegetables myself. That does not mean I am so much in love with it but I know how valuable they are for health. With advancement of age, now I realize even more that how important it is to take care of own health but in a simpler way. We need to make the things easy on our own way;so that we can be able to become passionate about healthy habits.

In my every meal I try to add a portion of vegetable and I feel like a bowl of salad is simply great to make a meal delicious. I make varieties of salad depending on my mood but a very easy to go, almost daily consumable salad is what I am going to write about now.

Cozy Winter Night

Beautiful sparkling winter

I enjoy the beauty of each and every season. Winter is something so dreamy. I believe that identifying the essence of each season and finding the comfort zone  definitely opens the opportunity to enjoy it to the fullest.

Winter nights are long and obviously most comfortable nights. Many people complains because they find winter time boring due to lack of productiveness. I would say this is the time to use the energy for more creativity while staying totally cozy in most comfortable way.

First we need to find the essentials and then add some charms on it :)! I do not want to plan anything to make it an expensive one but definitely it is going to be a precious one. After all budgets are important around this time of the year. If you need to stick to one check out this tool. Plan before winter arrives , so you stay in total comfort from very beginning of the season.

Candles warm you up and lightens the long dark nights

Make sure your room temperature is appropriate. Heating up your room to optimum temperature is most important for remaining productive. Proper lighting will elevate the mood. Light up some candles around the corners of the room which will not only provide light but also warmth and the environment will be more dreamy.

favorite hot chocolate drink

Drink you favorite hot drink and my favorite is hot chocolate drink. In winter we don’t really get thirsty but that doesn’t mean that we will skip drinking the amount of fluid that our body needs. Soup, coffee, green tea, chocolate or caramel drink can easily keep us hydrated. Winter nights are long so keep some nuts and crunchy stuffs in your reach while working on your laptop or reading your favorite Novel.

Winter essentials

Watching favorite TV series or movies are my most favorite night time activity during winter time. As nights are long I have more time for my own activities. Sometime I love sitting in the favorite corner of my room and paint something either on canvas or over a piece of glass to make a decorative piece. Writing blogs while sitting with my laptop on my bed covering my feet under warm blanket feels amazing. Some light music also plays important role to elevate my mood.

Cozy bed – all that I need

Last but not the least I love so much to have a quick massage on my feet with my favorite foot cream just before sleep. It is so comforting and helps me so much for a sound sleep.

Winter is beautiful ! Make this winter time cozy at home and enjoy the best out of it 🙂

Love you all so much !!

XOXO!

MAC STUDIO MOISTURE CREAM

Winter has arrived.It is high time now to take care of ourselves specially our skin. Proper care of health and beauty is the key to enjoy winter to its fullest. Try to be prepared before the very first cold wind touches you.

I would love to let you know about one of my favorite face care product for this winter.

MAC STUDIO MOISTURE CREAM is my all time favorite.Swedish winter is like living in a cold box but still my skin is living with good enough moisture with the magic of this fantastic cream.

This super-rich creamy moisturizer  contains extracts of passion fruit,green tea, spinach leaf,  coconut,algae and wheat germ. Moistens,  firms and protects the skin. This cream gives a  healthy radiance. It helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines. Good for both day and night.You can check details on their website: http://www.maccosmetics.se/product/178/1130/Studio-Moisture-Cream/index.tmpl

The best part of the product is that it is not greasy at all.As the  cream is for both day and night time so easy during travel,one container will fulfill the needs for whole day.

In the morning it gives a very fresh feeling because it moisturize the skin all night. Before applying primer and foundation in daytime  it can be used to prepare the  skin. Even I do not need to use a primer because it is good enough to work as a  primer.few people complained that in summer the make up will not stay perfect for longer if this cream is used before foundation but as we are talking about winter this is absolutely perfect.

I think  now it will be easy to decide if you need a perfect moisturizer in this winter.Truly its worth the money.

Hope you try and share your opinion.

XOXO!!!
