SELF-LOVE: Rose water

SELF-LOVE ๐Ÿ™โค Are you ready for another recipe for home-made natural cosmetic?
Let’s make rose water! ๐ŸŒน
.
Rose water is a cosmetic that is crucial in everyday make-up removal process. It is a perfect natural tonic that you can spray your face with after cleaning it ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ.
.
If you combine it with glycerine it will work as setting spray – it will improve your make up, make it last longer and will reduce the feeling of powderiness.
.
If you use it as tonic it will make your skin calm and will bring its pH balance ๐Ÿค—
.
Rose water is perfect for delicate skin, allergic skin…it will work on any skin really! ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
You’ll need:
๐Ÿ”น๏ธ250-300ml distilled water
๐Ÿ”น๏ธrose patels (out of 3 big uncoloured roses) ๐ŸŒน
๐Ÿ”น๏ธ10-20 drops of rose essential oil (optional)
.
1. Wash petals, put them in a pot and pour distilled water over it
2. Heat the water – it should be hot but it shouldn’t boil!
3. Turn stove off, cover the pot and set it aside to cool
4. Strain the brewing, pour it into a small bottle (spray one would be best), optional add essential oil.
.
To make the rose water last longer keep it in a fridge (for up to 2 months). Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŒน

Rest

How do you rest? โš ๏ธ
Do you lie down on a couch in front of a TV? And when you do, do you relax, focus on a movie and let your problems aside? โ˜บ Or do you watch a movie but in reality you keep thinking what you haven’t done, what still needs to be done, you analyze your problems and in fact have no idea whatโ€™s going on in the movie? ๐Ÿ‘€
:::
You need to LEARN TO REST! Thatโ€™s right, learn to rest ๐Ÿ˜‰
When itโ€™s relax time you need to focus on here & now and enjoy the silence/movie/chill. ๐Ÿค—
:::
Learn to โ€žlockโ€ your problems in a cage and keep them there for later ๐Ÿ—, now enjoy your time off.
If youโ€™re having a problem dividing relax time and โ€žworrying timeโ€ ๐Ÿ˜… plan it ๐Ÿ˜‰. Find a spot in your calendar where you can sit for 15-30min and think about your situation, about solutions for possible problems etc. Do it during this time and then have proper time off.
:::
When itโ€™s relax time it relax time! Remember! Otherwise youโ€™ll never rest and youโ€™ll never feel relaxed โš ๏ธ

SELF-LOVE: Have fun!

SELF-LOVE ๐Ÿ™โค
How old are you?
Do you still have your inner child in you? ๐Ÿคช
:::
Today think of your favourite game/activity you used to do when you were a kid/teenager.
Drop all that adult life and have some fun! ๐Ÿค—
:::
Maybe cook yourself a meal your Mom used to make for you when you were little? ๐Ÿ˜‹
:::
Play some old tunes you used to listen to when you were a child! ๐ŸŽถ
:::
Today just be reckless and have some fun!
I’m sure you have some game that you used to love in your childhood. Maybe monopoly? Or Crash Bandicoot on Playstation? ๐Ÿ˜
I love to play The Sims from time to time ๐Ÿ™ˆ (very rarely ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…).
What’s gonna be your fun activity?

SELF-LOVE: Memories

While we all are struggling with those weird and difficult times lets dive into the past ๐Ÿ˜
Take your photo album, pour yourself a tea/wine/drink and soak into memories. Maybe call a friend that you’ve been in a trip with and talk about it together? Laugh about your wild adventures and funny stories! ๐Ÿค—
Try to relive those beautiful days!
Maybe dig deeper and find your childhood photos? Call your siblings or parents and relive it together! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•
Memories are forever ๐Ÿ™

SELF-LOVE: Suit up

SELF-LOVE ๐Ÿ™โค
How’s your self-isolation going?
Are you stuck in pjs and without make up for weeks now?
Today I want you to jump out of pyjamas and suit up! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Put on something nice, do your hair and make up and check yourself out in the mirror!
Maybe do some selfies? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜…
Simply dress up just for you, maybe try some new hairstyle or new kind of make up?
Have fun!

Self-isolation time

How are you doing these days?
How are you spending self-quarantine time?
:::
There is this worldwide pressure that you NEED TO do something practical during this time, you need to get some new skills, learn something new, bake home-made bread and get ABS ๐Ÿ™„
No, you donโ€™t ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
You CAN and it is GOOD IDEA but you donโ€™t HAVE TO โš ๏ธ
:::
What you should do is stay calm and relaxed ๐Ÿ™
:::
We are all different and we react to current situation in a different way.
:::
If you never had time for your projects/dreams and now you do, if you feel calmย & relaxed during this time and you feel productive and want to do something while being at home then definitely use thise time and get to work ๐Ÿ’ช
:::
BUT
If youโ€™re feeling stressed, if youโ€™re worrired about the future and canโ€™t stay focused then let it go ๐Ÿ˜˜ Postpone your plans and dreams for better times and now work on your mental health ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Work on your inner peace instead ๐Ÿ™
:::
Use this time toย do whatever makes you calm and happy ๐Ÿค— If working on dreams and being productive makes you happy (like me ๐Ÿ˜…) then yes, this time is great opportunity to get something done and walk out of quarantine with new skills and/or projects.
:::
But if youโ€™re not one of those people then ignore this pressure to DO SOMETHING, donโ€™t read those posts that say โ€žYou never lacked time, you lacked disciplineโ€ ๐Ÿ™„ and read mine instead!ย ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
This is difficult time that we all need to get through and whatever each one of us does during this time itโ€™s his/her business ๐Ÿ˜‰
Just be happy! ๐Ÿค—

How are you these days?
Are you calm? Are you relaxed?
I want you to pour yourself a glass of wine (or whatever your guilty pleassure drink is ๐Ÿ˜) and turn your favourite movie or tv show on! ๐Ÿ“บ
I know it’s not a ground breaking or original idea but I want you to promise me that you’ll really do it and you’ll have that 2h (at least) to yourself! If not today then this weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š
Please do it for me. Do it for yourself ๐Ÿ™
For me there’s nothing more relaxing than a glass of white wine and Friends ๐Ÿ˜Šโค
