Brush for skin exfoliation

Another beauty secret my  Miranda Kerr was to exfoliate the skin with dry brush with natural bristle.  A note to myself is to always get enough info before using something. I tried the brush yesterday, but in the shower. I had no idea that you’re actually supposed to use it before the shower or a bath. The results were still great, though! My skin felt like baby’s skin. Next time I will use it properly though.

Here’s my dry brush by WellFit (Made in Germany):

The Rebound movie

Another cute movie I watched today. The story is about a woman in 40s going thru a divorce and meeting a young guy and falling in love with him. Catherine Zeta Jones is one of the most beautiful women on Earth in my opinion and Justin Bartha, her partner in the movie is very cute and has gorgeous blue eyes. Sharing with you many pictures from the movie this time – they all are just so adorable. And here is the trailer:

And I love the message this movie delivers: If the two are meant to be together, they will end up together, no matter how long it takes, even if it takes some time to be separate from each other, even if it takes 5 years… Believe in love!

Noom Weight app

Another app that was recently suggested by one of my friends and have earned my respect is Noom Weight. Noom weight is the tracking tool or a journal of what you eat. First, when you download and install the app, it asks you to enter your age, current weight and height and your goal weight. After that you enter your meals and workouts (what’s cool here is that even activities like housework and driving count). After entering a meal or a workout, the app shows you motivational messages on what kind of foods you should reduce and what should you eat more and encourages you to have a healthy lifestyle! I’m recently became an addict of healthy eating and working out and I absolutely adore this app! Plus, I love apps that have  slick and neat design and this app surely has it!

The Proposal

This is the second time I watched this movie and it again made me laugh! Cute, romantic and funny! Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are one of my favorite actors.

The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

ghosts_of_girlfriends_past_xlg

Another movie worth watching is “The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past”. Funny, touching and romantic. I recommend watching to all the nice guys who are trying to be jerks to be successful with women 🙂 For guys who are already jerks, it’s already too late, haha=)

Mathew McConaughey is funny and cute as always. Jennifer Garner is charming and Michael Douglas is perfect…

And here are some funny quotes from the movie:

Uncle Wayne: So here’s a couple of tips. When you first meet a girl you give her two compliments above the neck. Yeah, tell her she’s got nice lips, nice eyes, nice hair… she’s intelligent, her moral ethics, whatever crap comes to your mind. Then just when she begins to thinks that you’re another – you know – vanilla nice guy that she can tool around with all night without getting naked…

[hits his hand on bar]

Uncle Wayne: you *insult* her! Flip the power dynamic and your let her know that you’re here to play.

 

Vonda Volkom: Spooning is nice.

Connor Mead: Yeah. But not as nice as forking.

 

“The power of all relationships lies in whoever cares less.”

“I think you only really get over somebody, when you find somebody else that you’d care about more.”

‘You’ve got to risk love…It doesn’t mean that you’re never going to get hurt, but I can guarantee you this. Any pain that you feel will never ever compare to the regret that comes from walking away from love. And from someones who’s felt a lot of both, trust me, regret beats pain everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.’

 

Shazam Red

Another app on my top favorite list is Shazam Red. I don’t know how we lived without Shazam 🙂 really!

New feature in Shazam now allows you to see popular tags by location.

Rosehip oil

Another beauty tip by Miranda Kerr is to use rose-hip oil. Miranda applies it after the shower all over her body for the whole night. And when she wakes up the next day her skin is glowing.  She also uses it as an eye make-up remover and adds the oil to her night cream.

I applied the oil after the shower last night and I have to admit Miranda is right. My skin feels very soft and silky and it even seems to have light bronzing effect. Perfect!

Time to try it as an eye make-up remover and and add it to the night cream too!

This is how the rose-hip oil I bought in one of the drugstores looks like. I wish the bottle was bigger though! After I applied it last night almost half of the bottle is gone…

TuneIn Radio App

Now, this app is absolutely my favorite. I wake up and I turn it on and it’s on all day whenever and wherever wifi is available. From easy to use and neat design to the huge selection of probably all existing radio stations on Earth, this app got my heart and I actually purchased  Pro version, which I rarely do. Pro version removes annoying ads and allows you to record favorite show or a song.

5 stars! See for yourself ->

The app also allows you to view recent radio stations list and it also gives you recommendation based on your previous selection.

Relax Melodies: A white noise ambiance for sleep

Sometimes I have a really hard time falling asleep. That’s when ‘white noise’ apps come in handy. I downloaded Relax Melodies free version from the AppStore and have been quite satisfied with this app.

When you open the app it gives 2 options: to generate waves for Concentration or Relaxation. Here are some sound options:

This App also allows you to play several sounds at once and save your favorite sounds:

You can set the alarm time and timer for the ‘white noise’.

You can also turn on the night screen mode.

And here are some settings options:

Once in a while the ad appears proposing to download the full version. And here are the benefits they offer:

How likely I am to purchase the full version – likely, but after I try all other free ‘white noise / alarm’ apps 🙂

 

Guess Melody

Another app I discovered recently and enjoy is Guess Melody. This game is based on a TV show from my childhood, where the players would select a category of music (pop, rock, oldies, etc.) and then have to guess the singer. The player who answers first and answers correctly wins.  I like to play this game if I have spare few minutes.

You can get this App in AppStore for free.
