I’m back… maybe

Hi everybody! How are you guys doing?

Lots happened in my life the last 6 months, and I haven’t been able to take care of my blog. Hopefully things are going to get better very soon, and I have lots of surprises for you.

In the meantime I have to thank you for all the visits and comments I have received. It’s really touching to know that you didn’t forget about me, and were wondering how I was doing!

As I said already in the past, this blog is for you.

I’ll be back very soon.

If you hate the Royal Wedding (already)

I don’t! I actually can’t wait to see Kate’s dress, and it’s not only because I will be able to say that my dress is much better!

I noticed CNN broadcast will start at 4 am on Apr 29… which is reasonable if you think it’s going to be 9 am in London, UK. But when I told my husband I was going to set up the alarm – it was a joke – I couldn’t hold it anymore, and he expressed to me how much he hate this Royal Wedding…. already.

I understand him, it’s a man thing.
Plus, I have to admit that this wedding is pretty much everywhere on TV, and since the only alternative seems to be the federal elections here in Canada, well… you can understand his frustration.

I think  there might be lots of people sharing his feelings, but it’s a big event, and I wonder how excited these two guys probably are.

I remember myself few days before my wedding! And I’m not a princess!

So, maybe, all those guys who hate this event could twist it to their advantage and propose to their girlfriends!!! – I am a genius! That is a YES for sure!!!

Could you imagine how it would be special to watch the Royal Wedding on TV few minutes after he proposes?!?!

OMG! I want to get married again!

Homemade natural firming facial mask

When I found this recipe I couldn’t believe it, so I decided to test it!

After the commitment to my 2011 resolution, here I am sharing with you my very first natural body care recipe.
Thanks to friends, Internet, different books and magazine, I have been taking notes and discovering a brand new world. Even just going to one of those stores that sale organic and natural products and talking with them can be an excellent resource for who, like me, it’s a beginner of “I want to make the difference”.

This facial mask is great for shrinking your pores and light up again your face.

You need:
- one cold egg white (please use a fresh large egg, not those nasty egg whites in a box that should even being in your fridge!)
- one and 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch or white flour

Mix the two ingredients together until foamy.

It would probably look pretty liquid to you, but trust me, it will dry quickly.

Using your finger or a brush apply on you face and throat  avoiding eyes and lips. Let it dry for about 15-20 minutes. As I said, it will dry pretty tight, and you will probably feel itchy and unable to move you mouth. Try to relax.

I actually found it funny when I tried the first time: when it dries, you can see yourself with lots of wrinkle, and since the mask has not color, it really looks like your skin!

Rinse with warm water and apply moisturizer (do not miss my natural moisturizer recipes coming up!).

Do not store the mask, instead make it as need it and use once at week. The quantity is actually enough for two masks, so you could make it and share it with a friend!

Enjoy your skin!
