I would always get complaints about how i would give people dirty looks, i’m pretty positive it was just my face hahaha. But i haven’t heard that complaint in a while SOOO..

What is your single most vivid memory as a child?

Being forced to pretend i’m someone i am truly not, being told to act certain ways and believe certain things and shun people who were different, in terms of education. Not my family life.

What are some of your thoughts on social media; answer it in a sentence of no more than 15 words.

It makes people a little crazy haha..

What is your most sentimental and prized tangible possession (please guys don’t pick the obvious, that means no house, car, laptop, phone etc.!)?

My hair πŸ’• I cut it all off when i was younger and regretted it so bad, and now i have long healthy hair i would never cut it again. 😁

What is your idea of an ideal day?

I am a home body.. Haha it would have to be a gloomy day, maybe Β even raining.. Where i can light some sweet smelling candles, pour a cup of coffee, turn off all the noise, clean up the house and get on my laptop & blog πŸ’—

Share one random general fact/trivia you know (from the top of your head) without searching for it from a source of information.

For every human on the earth there are almost 2 million ants. 😯

Who is your favourite FRIENDS character (if you don’t know the show, favourite How I Met Your Mother character). If don’t watch either, what is your favourite series to watch. If you don’t watch any, favourite book.

My favorite book is The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.

What is your one current obsession?

Detox waters! πŸ‘ & Trying out different forms of eyeliners.

On to the makeup questions, share one beauty tip/hack fail that you have experienced. If you don’t have one, then just one bad experience you have had with makeup.

I cannot make eyeliner on my inner corner look good. Lol πŸ˜‚

Mascara, eyeliner, eyebrow product (any kind), blusher, lipstick (any kind). Pick one from this list and your reason for picking it.

Mascara because it will liven up your face without any other products. Make you a bit more appealing/feminine in my opinion.

Now for my super good, super easy detox water recipe! This is SO simple anyone can do it!

Β 

You will need:Β 

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • A Cucumber
  • An Orange
  • Bag of Black Chia Seeds
  • Can of Coconut Water (optional)

Β 

Chia is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients without being loaded with calories. Almost all of the carbs in them are actually fiber, and they can actually help you lose weight. They can be added to any type of drink, smoothies, cereal, oats, salads and more. This bag cost me $4.00 and will last me an extremelyΒ long time since you use small amounts.

Β Β 

I started off by throwing in Raspberries, blackberries and thinly sliced orange and cucumber in my pitcher. I used a little less than half the cucumber, and i sliced up half the orange and squeezed the other halfs’ juice into the pitcher.

Β Then i slightly muddled (squished) the ingredients with a long wooden spoon. Crushing up almost all of the rasberries but leaving the other fruits in tact and beautiful.

Β 

After that step, it’s time to add your Chia Seeds. I used 2 tablespoons.

Β 

Toss them in ontop of your fruit and use your spoon to mix things up. Then put a load of ice ontop your fruit, followed by a can of coco water and regular ice water. Mix mix mix!

Β 
It takes overnight for the flavors to hint the water. The next day you will have a lovely, healthy and beautiful drink to fuel your morning! The seeds and ingredients will settle at bottom like so:

Β 
That’s normal! All you need to do is stir it up, pour yourself a glass and enjoy πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸŠπŸ‡πŸŽ

I hope you guys enjoyed this terribly long post, please do leave comments & thoughts for me! πŸ’­
