Movies of February


These are the movies I watched during the month of February. 

Life As We Know It - pretty good, easy going romantic comedy.
The King's Speech - camera work caught my eye, found it to be inspiring.
I'm In Love With A Church Girl - corny movie, wouldn't recommend.
2 Guns - an okay action/crime movie with a little bit of comedy.
Hangover - yes... I am late on this but it was amazing as well as parts II & III.
The Internship - humorous film, worth watching.
Don Jon - liked the editing, great movie, definitely different.

Motivational Mondays (2)


Don't you miss the times when you did not know the reality?

When you believed what you wanted to believe...

No one forced you the truth because you was just a kid. 

As I've grown I noticed that often we have to face heart breaking facts even if we don't want to. However, it all depends on how we react to them. You don't have to admit things and make it even harder on yourself.

So don't be afraid to be that naive kid once again...

It's worth it!

Rose Water


Recently I came along this great idea of how to make rose water. 

It is known to be very beneficial for your face, hair and body as well as other unique things you can use it for. 

Since I had some roses from Valentine's Day, I thought I could use one of them for this DIY project.

You will need: 1 rose (equals 1 cup of petals) and 2 cups of water.

Rinse rose petals. Put them in the pot and pour the water. Turn on the heat. Simmer until the petals loose their color (took me about 15 mins). Strain the petals and now you have rose water. Let it cool.

I put it in the spray bottle and decorated it with the bow.

It's a great way to pamper yourself without spending lots of money. It can also be an amazing and unique gift for someone else.

Motivational Mondays (1)


Do you often wonder what others think about you? 

I do... and I tend to over think it.

Did I say it right? How did I look? Was I awkward?

The fact that I will probably never find out bothers me even more. 

Now let's look from the positive side... Does it really matter? As long as you are the best you can be, you shouldn't be worried.

At the end of the day, there are more important things than this.

Food with Love


Did you know that food with a pinch of love taste better?

All you need is cream of wheat and any kind of jam.

Just make your regular cream of wheat either with milk or water. Pour it in a bowl and put some jam on top to make it look like it's a heart. I used two tablespoons of strawberry preserves and then carefully shaped it into a heart.

It's very easy but super cute for Valentine's Day, Anniversary or anytime you want to share some love!

Yesterday I watched an amazing movie which I would definitely recommend for everyone.

It's perfectly describable as a biographical political film. It gives us one side of conflicts between Palestine and Israel as well as the other side of how it affects their own people. 

I loved how these rough stories were portrayed in a very understandable way. I think, it is extremely important while trying to show such a hard times and struggles ordinary people had to go through. What is more, political issues weren't overpowering even though it was a huge part of the movie.

It is absolutely worth watching to get inspired by such a powerful personal stories and also widen your historical, political and even geographical knowledge. 

"MIRAL" definitely got me thinking about certain issues we as communities and individuals have. 


Dollar Tree Reviews (1)


Sometimes I come along these great Dollar Tree items. 

I thought it would be cool to let people know about them. 

The first product which I love is this Sea Breeze facial lotion. Usually I don't get anything like that in Dollar Tree, simply because it's cheap and you never know if it will do any good for you. However, I decided to grab this item and I love it. 

It is very nice creamy consistency but feels light on your skin at the same time. It absorbs fast and keeps the skin moisturized. The lotion also has a pleasant, fresh smell. The tube is pretty big so it's going to last a pretty long time.

I definitely recommend it for everyone who is looking for great facial lotion without spending lots of money.

As good as it works for me, it might work differently for you. Make sure you carefully try it before you start using it on a daily basis to see if it fits your skin type.
