Give and it will be given to you

Few days ago I met one of my friend and we decided to go for a coffee. As soon as we took underground, young lady approached us and beg for the money. I'm sure you all keep seeing it at least once a day. It's impossible to give money all the time and it's also hard to know who really needs it.
Well, that day I felt she really needs it, so I gave her small change.
My friend looked at me and asked:''Why did you give her money?''
''She looked like she needs it'' I answered.
''Yes, but if she needs it, she can go and find a job, she is young'' my friend continued.
''I don't know, I just had a feeling she needs it, plus we don't know what really happened to her that made her to do that.'' I tried to explained my friend.

We stopped talking about it and continue our journey. When we got out of the tube, we saw an older man outside, once again beg for money. He looked very sad, dressed in old clothes, but there was still something nice about him in his eyes. Everyone was passing him by, but even though he didn't get any money, he kept wishing everyone a lovely day.
I couldn't help myself and gave him small change. He looked at me, smilled and then he thanked me and wished me a lovely day.
''I don't believe it'' my friend told me looking at me angry.
''What are you doing?'' she continued.
''Nothing, I just feel he needs it, plus it's not like I'm giving people money every day.'' I tried to explain my action.

Later on I met my boyfriend and since it was Friday night, we decided to go a little bit out to our favorite bar for a couple of drinks. We sat down and my boyfriend put his cigarettes on the table. As soon as he did that a passer stopped by, asked him for a cigarette and my boyfriend gave him two.
''It's Friday night and weekend is in front of us, so let's be nice'' he told and winked at me.
After that we enjoyed our evening.
We had two drinks each and a big portion of fries. 
Later on we asked waiter for our bill. Few minutes later different guy came to our table. It was a manager of the restaurant. He shook our hands and told my boyfriend:
''Hey, it's good to see you guys again, it's been a while since I saw you two. What can I get for you?''
''Nothing, thank you, we just asked for the bill.''
''Oh, in that case, let me take care of it'' he continued.
''No, no, it's fine'' my boyfriend insist.
''Please, let me take care of it. Tonight it's on me and also, hope to see you soon again.''
He shook our hands again and we left without paying.

I know some of you thing it's nothing special, but for me it was a proof that if you do something nice for someone it will definitely come back to you. I found this to be true.
How we treat life is how we will be treated by life in return. If you treat life with unconditional love, respect, appreciation, then you will take pleasure in all life has to offer.

Get a beautiful long hair

All woman want to know how to get long hair fast.
Have you ever wished that you would have thicker, stronger and longer hair so much quicker?

I had short hair for 7 years when I decided to grow them long again. But as many of you know it is very hard to go from short hair to long. My trips to hairdresser finished always the same, having my stylist telling me how my hair been damage, how dry they look, etc.

Year and a half ago I moved to Paris and I was very exited living in the City of Fashion.
I was pretty sure that over here, I definitely grow my hair faster. But as soon as I went to first hairdresser, my hair stylist cut my hair much shorter than I wanted to be. I was crushed because I have the slowest growing hair in the world.

After finding another hairdresser, I told her all I want is just a little bit of a trim. As every other hairdresser, she tried to tell me my hair are quite dry, if she can take an extra inch.
This time I didn't allow.

As soon as I came home, I thought to change my eating habits and do it on my own. I thought that maybe I really could quickly grow out my hair. I decided to try all the foods for hair grow and homemade hair treatment. It was a huge challenge and I'm glad to say I succed.

That's me, growing long hair!

Hair grows faster when it's nourished through a healthy diet. 
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
1.) Green tea, many people recommend drinking several cups of green tea a day to promote hair growth. Drinking cranberry juice also helps. Green tea will boost your body's immune system, keep your hair shiny and clear skin as they contain antioxidants.

2.) Eat protein! A diet that is low in protein will cause thinning and weak hair. Eat sources of protein such as: eggs, fish, lean meats, yogurt, nuts and seeds, tofu, beans  and more legumes.

3.) Get the right nutrients and vitamins. Some key nutrients for hair growth include: iron, silica, calcium, B Complex vitamins, Vitamins A - C - E, Biotin. Some foods that contain these vitamins are: leafy green vegetables, dried fruits, eggs, citrus fruits and yams.

4.) Eating healthy fats such as Omega 3, 6 and 9, will help with skin elasticity and they also help promote healthy nails and hair. Eating foods like mackerel, salmon, sardines and flax seeds can help promote hair growth.

5.) Massage your scalp to stimulate circulation to the follicles which can promote hair growth. When you massage your scalp, use a good oil. This can help prevent a dry scalp and also keep your hair better conditioned.

6.) Eliminate deep fried foods, fast food, pastries, candy an excessive amounts of alcohol. (This is the hardest part).  :-)

The food I had the most success with to help my hair grow faster is ''Sushi''.
Sushi is extremly high in protein, being made of rice, seaweed and raw fish, so it helps hair to grow.

Deep treat with olive (coconut) oil.
Warm up a little olive oil and rub into your scalp. You can leave it on for an hour, or overnight.
Wash out with a good quality shampoo.
Deep treat with coconut oil. Same as above.
Increase blood flow to the scalp, massage is an effective way to bring more blood to the area.

Choosing to be positive

Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting!
As I mentioned before in some of my posts, if you truly want something from a deep of your heart, you might get it sooner than you think.
One of the quote from The Secret book says: 
''VISUALIZE!!! See it, feel it!''

I have been practicing positive thinking since I came across the Law of Attraction.
At first I thought......... that's impossible, how can this work?
Is it really enough to say  ''I am''.........''I want this''......... is it all what it takes?
Just a few words, better attitude, positive vibe......... and my life will change?

Many questiones run through my mind, but I still decided to give it a go and it was the best decision I could ever made. Positive thinking will open your mind, elevate your mood and will open up a world of possibilities to you. The words you use make a difference to how you feel. It is all because with positive thinking you see the brith side of life, you become more optimistic and you expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing.

Try to control your mind, learn how to calm yourself anytime you are stressed or anxious with positive afffirmations. Getting in control of the mind is a process that begins with awareness. Start with basic - choose your thoughts you want to think and hold your focus there. It's not easy, but you can do it!

Healthy Avocado

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. 
As  Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said: ''Tell me what you eat, I'll tell you who you are.''

Let's discover Magic powers of Avocado
Everyone seems to be searching for the best anti aging treatment that can help us to look and feel younger. How we can do it without spending millions on it???
Most of us love to eat avocado now and then, but did you know they are very important?
I love avocados, but for many years I was scared to eat them, because of all the myths (avocado makes you fat, contains a lots of calories, etc). 
Few months ago I was passing by our local supermarket when I saw a special offer and I just couldn't resist and bought a whole packet of 6.
Next morning, I decided to have avocado for breakfast, well I thought it might be healthier that way. While I was eating it, I put some on my face as a face mask and left it for a few minutes.
Next day I did the same and after 3 days of doing it I noticed how my skin became more soft and glowing.
Meat proteins, fat oil, vitamins and minerals from vegetables, they are all found in avocado.
Eating it helps to improve skin health and give a soft look and instant glow.
How you can use avocado in your day beauty routine?

Face cleansing mask: 
Avocado is a natural cleanser . Take the avocado and mash it with a fork in a bowl.Apply it to your face and neck and massage gently. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.Don't forget to apply your face cream afterwards.The result: Clean ,soft and glowing skin.
For a stronger result I eat 2-3x a week avocado in the morning before my breakfast and then I keep some as a face mask and apply it afterwards.It does make your face smoother.

Avocado helps you lose weight:

It may sound crazy, but it's true.
Very few people know that avocado can help you in your diets. Even avocado is a “fat” fruit, it is useful in losing weight.
Thanks to the monounsaturated fats which avocado contains, it helps you get your stomach “full” much quickly, reduces the temptation of eating chocolate and sweets.

Avocado is known as a metabolism speeder but it has many other benefits as well.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 
- It is a good antioxidant.
- It can be used in the treatment of skin disorders.
- It is used to heal people who suffer from digestive and circulatory problems.
- On top of that have high levels of oleic acid known to protect against breast cancer.

Love is......

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Remember the first time you both met?
Wasn't that a beautiful moment?
Love is important, because it gives you special moments to smile and laugh throughout your life. It gives you strengh to fight weakness, helps you survive the bad times with a smile on your face and it makes you stronger.
Many times we found love and after a while we forget how important it is. We let stress of our daily life to get in the way and destroy something we dreamed about it all life. We start to see only bad things in each other and we don't notice when love starts to slowly slip away.
Sometimes we forget about how important it is to reach out to our friends/family/partners when they are down and out. Sometimes a hug is all we need. So, don't hold to anger, hurt or pain, they steal your energy and keep you from love. Instead, hug each other.

Remember, that love is important because it assures you a better tomorrow. Love is best seen as devotion and action, not an emotion. Love is knowing all about someone and still wanting to be with them more than any other person. Love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of. Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.

Bob Marley - Definition Of Love!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
''If she loves you, what else matters?
She's not perfect - you aren't either and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can.
She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart.
So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad and miss her when she's not there."
~Bob Marley ~

"True love is knowing a person's faults and loving them even more for them. No matter how hard things seem, true love will aide you through it. Listen to your heart, for it knows the truth."
