#StopViolenceAgainstWomenActivists

Hey readers :) Sign this petition against Women Activists in Afghanistan. Remember Malala? Young girl who was shot for her determination to receive an education? If we can get enough signatures, (yes, you guessed it, another campaign...) We could meet her and through our strategic ways, perhaps stop violence against women activists in Afghanistan and hopefully give those who are suffering, asylum in this country, (the UK). I apologise that I am probably the most irregular blogger on Blogger and will make it up to you guys this weekend.
Stay with me and keep reading :)
P.s. Sign this:

Turn a New Leaf, For It's a New Year

(Phew) So 2013 has finally come to an end, huh? Did your year go well? Was it good? Bad? Balanced? A roller coaster? Boring? Filled with excitement to the brim? All in all I hope you've enjoyed your year. Since I have seen the people struggle with resolutions, (making and keeping), I wish to give you guys some advice. 

Stuck on somebody from the past?
Everybody has been in the position where they aren't sure whether to hold on or let go. Here's a short advice poem:
They are the cactus to your candle,
The chocolate to your doorhandle,
The river to your mathematical errors and the ashtray to your soul.
My point is they don't mean a thing and being with them doesn't really make sense.

You were living before and you can live now so stop this nonsense and get a hobby. If they're unhealthy for you, accept it. Who knows? Somebody may be just around the corner this year, someone good for you.

Wanting to become a better person?
Put down those cigarettes, drugs or alcohol for a start. You can never improve yourself if you aren't in your senses. Next work on that temper. Breathing helps as does walking away from the situation. Note: I said walking away, not storming out. Be nice. Smile, clean the house without being asked, buy somebody a present, be charitable. Work on your maturity. Abandon that goofy sense of humor and leave it in 2013, learn to be polite. Accept that others perform faults and you can't control them. Deactivate a few social networks. It'll give you a life, I promise. Concentrate on your work/studies, success could be yours this year if you want it to be. Most importantly, have faith in yourself. 

Wanting to lose weight?
If I had a pound for every time I'd heard that resolution...
You're beautiful. Even if you're a guy, you're beautiful. But calling you beautiful isn't going to help you lose weight. Swap that packet of crisps for an apple. Walk instead of taking the bus or hitching a ride. Join the gym if you can. Get yourself more active whenever you can. Drink water for it flushes out toxins. Interesting fact: 9 calories = 1 gram of fat.
Also remember that you've been sculpted in such a beautiful way that this is how you, yes, you (insert name here), you've been made like this to suit being you. If you want to change it, change it naturally.

Don't make any hasty decisions - think, not twice, but thrice before you act.
Align your priorities.
Take care of your parents, and grandparents, if you have them - in your venture of growing up, we often tend to forget that they are growing old.
Clean your house - It cleans out your karma and it will cause good karma to come to you.
Practice your religion - it makes you happier, healthier and more at peace, (restless souls, you know what i'm referring to).
Smile - the universe will naturally be nice to you and your appearance will naturally look more healthier, confident and attractive.

On a lighter note, look! My New years nails!

Have an awesome year, guys.

Boxing Day : Minuscule Lush Haul

I know what you're thinking, two posts in two days o.O I blog when I can...

Did you rush to the boxing day sales like my sister and I? We awoke the day after Christmas at a much-too-early eight o'clock. Braving the cold, we readied to begin our trek into the city centre. The streets were still asleep as we awaited for our mighty stead's arrival: the bus. We went into town, eyes hungry for the sight of our destination: Lush. We had received news from people that Lush discount 50% on all Christmas goods as an annual tradition. We stood in the queue impatiently as the sluggish, dazed workers hung the '50% off' sign in the window. I went to the window, peering in to form some strategy. This was war. I made mental notes on what we wanted and where it was as the queue outside the closed shop began to grow. At 10:30 the shutter rose and chaos began. I began to grab everything I could see, only after it was in my hands did I decide whether I wanted it or not. My sister too was doing the same. We worked as a team, elbowing our way through the crowded shop which held more people than the capacity recommended. Eventually we had grabbed all we wanted and stood in the queue which spiraled around the soaps and face masks all the way around the bath bombs. Obviously a trio of adolescents had to push in in such a sly manner, pretending to look at the soaps and then pulling a fast one. My sister's eyes turned crazy and I tried to tame her, and eventually, she simmered down. 
She then said one thing: "People like them grow up and ruin the world." After paying for our goods, we relaxed.
Onto what I bought:





Christmas Candy Box:
-
Popcorn lip scrub
- Candy Mountain bubble bar
- Rock Star soap (star mould)
- Snow Fairy shower gel
- Snowman Bath Bomb
Santa's Lip Scrub
Rose Jam Shower Gel
Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt

All of this was under £20! You can vaguely see the snowman bath bomb picture which is advertised, right? Notice how it looks nothing like the bath bomb given? And also the edible love hearts on top of the Santa Lip Scrub? Not edible. 

Did you brave the boxing day sales? What bargains did you grab?

Xmas Loot


Hey readers! I hope you had an amazing Christmas filled with joy, warmth, food and gifts. I personally had a great Christmas. We didn't actually have a tree so we decided to make a make-shift one... from the Brussels sprout tree. -__- 

I didn't get to take any picture to show you guys as my mom had taken away my phone... I've been naughty this year (face flushes). But my mom treated me with gifts as though I'd been nice. Our Christmas dinner was awesome. Everything was completely fresh from the Brussels sprouts sauteed in butter, to the crispy, fluffy potatoes soaking in a tantalizing chicken gravy. Although we had all tried our best to finish everything, after mass vegetable consumption, all were full. Every female had done their nails in a Christmas-sy fashion and all were in high spirits. All went well. Onto what I'd received:



Elf's Festive Brush Set
Garnier Fresh Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover with Grape
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Pink Punch
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Peach Kiss
Revlon Nail Enamel in Cherries in the Snow
The Body Shops's Sweet Lemon Lip Butter
Radox Shower Gel in Cherry Blast

Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Wash
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
Elf's 100pc Marble Eyeshadow Palette

What did you get for Christmas?

I Was Blinded By The Beauty of The World... JK

I always knew something was off about my posts and my writing techniques: I'm blind. Not literally but my left eye has a slight, (I say slight but i'm trying not to embarass left-esha), deficiency. Slip on your optician's cap, beanie, bowler's hat, snapback- whatever you wish to call it and listen. My right eye stands at 0.00, (perfect vision). And my left eye stands at 2.85, (deficient). Think of the brain as the mother and my two eyes as the children. My brain favours my right eye so much that it's a spoilt brat and my left eye was ignored so now the brain pays pretty much, absolutely no attention to left-esha. So, Left-esha has turned blind. I'd never noticed that I couldn't see out of my left eye until I was forced to recognise this. Anyway the light at the end of this tunnel is that I've now got glasses. I'd always wanted glasses because they immediately bring in air of intelligence and sophistication to anybody  wearing them. But now, I don't want them. I hate having to constantly look through goggles to see the world! And I also look like a dork! Haha, Dork. You'll understand my in-joke if you've read my Eat Your Knowledg-ables Post. Anyway, do you want to see my glasses?

I was so conflicted between what glasses to get that I even consulted one of the assistants. Not much help, though. Did you like my glasses? No? If you thought they sucked... YOU SUCK! SO DO YOUR TENTACLES!

Smoking Sucks!... The Life Out of You

There are many things which I, (sadly), still do not understand, regardless of my fourteen years of life and knowledge. Like why there is cancer, why do we feel pain, who invented the alphabet, why GCSE's are so difficult to pass these days, why people wear socks and sandals etc. etc. Another question I wish I knew the answer to was why do people smoke? I honestly cannot understand the appeal of smoking a cigarette. What's so fun about inhaling the following substances? 
  
Ah, the smell of sewer gas, beautiful...-ly repulsive.

People tend to smoke for various reasons. Some people smoke as a stress-reliever, others smoke as a social activity. Some smoke to give off a confident bravado, others to keep their weight down. Some have a cigarette when feeling bored or lonely, others smoke when they need a break.

What's so appealing about terrible oral hygiene, wrinkles, loss of bone density,  bad skin, (maybe even resulting in psoriasis), foul smelling clothes and hair, reduced athletic performance, greater risk of injury with slower healing time, weaker immune system then resulting in increased risk of illness. Is it worth it?

Did you know?
  • Urea, a chemical compound that is a major component in urine, is used to add “flavor” to cigarettes.
  • In most countries around the world, the legal age for the purchase of tobacco products is now 18, raised from 16, while in Japan the age minimum is 20 years old.
  • Contrary to popular social belief, it is NOT illegal to smoke tobacco products at any age. Parents are within the law to allow minors to smoke, and minors are within the law to smoke tobacco products freely. However, the SALE of tobacco products is highly regulated with legal legislation.
  • Scientists claim the average smoker will lose 14 years of their life due to smoking. This however does not necessarily mean that a smoker will die young – and they may still live out a ‘normal’ lifespan. This simply means that the day they die, they will regret smoking for they could have lived for an extra fourteen years.
  • Cigarettes can contain more than 4,000 ingredients, which, when burned, can also produce over 200 ‘compound’ chemicals. Many of these ‘compounds’ have been linked to lung damage.
  •  Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds after smoke is inhaled. It has been found in every part of the body and in breast milk.
  • Sugar approximates to roughly 20% of a cigarette, and many diabetics are unaware of this secret sugar intake. Also, the effect of burning sugar is unknown.
  • Some people (mostly males) can be aroused by the sight of smoker smoking (usually females). This is called the Smoking Fetish, and affects a small number of the population. As with most fetishes, the reason for this arousal can usually be traced back to incidents in childhood. However, cigarettes – particularly menthol's, force blood away from the penis if smoked while aroused.
  • Most smokers take up the habit in their mid teens, well before the legal age for purchasing them, and is seen as a right of passage towards adulthood. Other perceived rights of passage include: aftershave, wearing stilettos, alcohol, drugs and sexual intercourse; with a combination of these sometimes being cited as the main causes of teenage pregnancy.
  • Most smokers take up the habit in their mid teens, well before the legal age for purchasing them, and is seen as a right of passage towards adulthood. Other perceived rights of passage include: aftershave, wearing stilettos, alcohol, drugs and sexual intercourse; with a combination of these sometimes being cited as the main causes of teenage pregnancy.
  • Smokers generally report a variety of after-effects; such as calmness, relaxation, alertness, stimulation, concentration and many others. In fact, smoking will produce a different effect in each individual depending on ‘what they expect to get’; turning the cigarette into the worlds most popular placebo (satisfying the brains hunger for nicotine being the only ‘relaxing’ factor). The smoker will then use these expectations as a means to continue the habit.
  • Several active ingredients and special methods of production are involved in making sure the nicotine in a cigarette is many times more potent than that of a tobacco plant.
  • ‘Toppings’ are added to the blended tobacco mix to add flavor and a taste unique to the manufacturer. Some of these toppings have included; clove, licorice, orange oil, apricot stone, lime oil, lavender oil, dill seed oil, cocoa, carrot oil, mace oil, myrrh, beet juice, bay leaf, oak, rum, vanilla, and vinegar.
I hope you, my beautiful blog reader, are not a smoker. For this would contradict everything that I have said in this post. But if you are indeed a smoker and you have been inspired to quit, here are some tips:
  •   Design your own personal game plan
    Write up on a piece of paper all the reasons as to why you wish to quit smoking. Be sure to tailor your list to your needs and desires. List all the places where you usually keep your cigarettes.
  • Start you stop smoking START plan
    S= Set a quit date - when you aspire to quit your habit
    T= Tell family, friends and co-workers you wish to quit and hopefully they'll support you and be a form of emotional support.
    A= Anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face whilst quitting.
    R= Remove cigarettes and other tobacco products away from your home, work place, car etc.
    T= Talk to your doctor about getting help to quit.
  • Stay active
  • Keep yourself distracted/busy
  • Keep your mind busy
  • Listen to music
  • Read a book
  • Watch a movie
  • Go on walks
  • Keep other things to pop in your mouth as a substitute: chewing gum, nuts, dried fruit, mints etc.
  • Drink lots of water to flush out the toxins from your body and helps the cravings pass quicker.
  • Use Nicorette Products
  • Attend nicotine support groups
  • Try hypnosis, acupuncture, counseling or cognitive behavioral therapy.

    If you do slip up after starting your path to recovery, remember:
  •  You’re not a failure if you slip up. It doesn't mean you can't quit for good.
  • Don’t let a slip become a mudslide. Throw out the rest of the pack. It's important to get back on the non-smoking track now. 
  • Find the trigger. Exactly what was it that made you smoke again? Decide how you will cope with that issue the next time it comes up.  
  • Are you using a medicine to help you quit? Call your doctor if you start smoking again. Some medicines cannot be used if you are smoking at the same time. 

    If you smoke, I hope you've been inspired to stop. For I personally feel strongly against smoking. I believe it is signing yourself up for suicide. If you don't smoke... You go, you legend, you!

    I really appreciate the time you took out to read my blog post. It's just something that has become much too common in the community; it's intolerable.
