Show Off Those Long Locks: DIY Hair Growth Formula

I’ve always loved DIY projects and lately I’ve been dooing a lot of DIY beauty projects. I came across a recipe for hair growth the other day and thought I’d put it on here. What happens is the formula warms up the scalp sending blood to the hair follicle making the hair grow.

2 tablespoons of dry mustard powder (available from the department of spices) with hot water to dissolve 2 tablespoons, 1 egg yolk, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of sugar (the more sugar, the meaner).

Mix this up and put it on your scalp once a week for 1 month and your hair will grow 10 cm. I haven’t tried it for a month yet but I definitely can tell the difference. I hope you like it 🙂

Asking All Them Questions: What Do You Strive For?

Live Hard Love Hard

On the quietest moonlit night pull me close and tell me your life desires in hushed tones.

Turn me on with whispers of your dreams.

What are they?

What pushes you?

What seduces you?

Tell me your driving force. Tell me what turns you into a force to be reckoned with.

The desire that keeps you coming?

The outcome that keeps you moving forward?

What makes you jump out of bed? Puts you to sleep with a smile played across your face?

Tell me.

What do you work towards?

Is it a dream worthy of you? Built on love and growth? Or stagnating lies?

What do you strive for?

What question have you spent a lifetime trying to answer?

“How can I be of service?” or “Will I be good enough?”

What pulls you into a heated frenzy? Sends you into waves of palpable passion?

Tell me.

I can’t…

Jobs? Those Are For Grown-Ups… Oh, Right.

Recently turning 18, I find myself needing a job for the first time in my life. A bit late but who cares. So I have searched high and low, North and South for a job. I think I applied for every job in town. And on my little adventure I have gathered information and come up with a few tips to make your life a little easier when looking for a job. So here you are: 🙂

1. If you walk into the place you want to work and there is something about it that you hate, turn right around and walk out the door. If its too loud or too dark or stinks to the high heavens DO NOT take an application that Thing will not change and you will not get used to it.

2. If the manager is rude to you in your interview, he is probably not the best person to work for. He will most likely be rude to you on a daily basis and no one wants that.

3. Dress for success. Put on your best slacks and a nice shirt or blouse. Fix your hair, brush your teeth. No one is going to hire a person who looks like a thug and smells like wet dog.

4. Know what you’re going to say before you say it. Most interviews have the same kind of questions. Be prepared to tell people about yourself; your strengths and skills. Know about the business and why you want to work there; no one wants to hear “well, money is money.”

Hope this helps everyone! 🙂

Have a great week! ❤ Taylor

Glitter Jar

tumblr_lwi9w3Lsdh1qk0znno1_500

There’s no science, no counting, no acceptance and no forceful methods involved in the alteration of your emotions during use of the glitter jar – just distraction.

Making a glitter jar is simple. You will need:

  • 1 jar (with a lid of course!)
  • 1/10 vegetable oil
  • 9/10 water
  • glitter – lots of!
  • food colouring
  • anything else shiny

Add the water and vegetable oil together. Add a few drops of food colouring, all of the glitter and anything else shiny. Put the lid on (tight!) and shake it.

When you want to cut / binge / scream / cry, shake the glitter jar and watch until the glitter is settled. It’ll calm you and hopefully the emotion will pass.

Amazing People: Marilyn Monroe

Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”

Helping You Understand: Vegetarians

Hey everyone first off I want to apologize for the looooong silence between my previous post and this one. I have been super busy and, frankly, out of ideas.

Anyway, recently I have decided to become a Vegetarian and have gotten a bunch of criticism on it. People say things like “that’ll never last” or “oh my god, you’re not turning into a stuck up hippie are you?” This kinda gets under my skin a bit. I mean I knew I was gonna get teased but some people treat me like I’m some kind of idiot because of it. I mean I’m not turning into a completely different person because I’m changing my view on how and what I eat.

Most people think of a hippie insisting being called “Sunshine”, sitting barefoot on a carpet, nibbling on carrots, and telling everyone how bad they are for eating meat when they think of a Vegetarian. Some Vegetarians might be like that but after many (okay one) hour of research I’ve found that there are all kinds of Vegetarians. Some only adopt the diet to lose weight or get healthy, some have religious or philosophical reasons, and some don’t want to promote the animal cruelty involved. Some even go veggie because it can help fight world hunger.

I became a Vegetarian because I feel that every species on earth (and off) is important. I am also a big believer in peace and love between human beings. I feel that if you want there to be peace and love you must spread peace and love. To be honest it’s kinda hard to spread peace and love to people because people get on my nerves. So I started small. First, I stopped killing the spiders and little bugs in my house. I just pick them up on a piece of paper and set them outside. Next came the vegetarianism. Now I can be patient and show love to humans with more ease, because if I can stop and take a second to consider the life of a tiny spider why should it be hard to consider the life of a human who has a much bigger impact on the world?

Yes some people can get on their high horse about being a Vegetarian but not all people are that pushy. So just take a minute and listen to the reason why the next Vegetarian you encounter became a Vegetarian. You might learn something. 🙂

Thanks For Listening,

Taylor ❤

Sweetening Up My Life A Bit

save

It’d been a stressful week with preparations for this and studying for that. I didn’t even get to clean my room. So Friday afternoon I deep cleaned my room, I’m talking down to the nooks and crannies of the closet deep. When I finished I took a nice bubble bath, made me a snack and lied down to read a book. It was as if all of my stress left my body and went somewhere else. Here’s just a little reminder that sweetening up your day can actually make life more livable.

❤ Have a wonderful day 🙂

Helping You Understand: Christians

So this is the first of a series of posts I’ll do on helping you understand the many kinds of people on this great planet Earth.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “Christian”? Self-righteous? Homophobic? Hypocritical? Judgmental? Yeah, that’s usually what gets thrown around. And as a Christian  I can honestly say that yes, most Christians are just that. This saddens and angers me at the same time because God is not this way. The basis of His whole existence is His love for us no matter what we do. Christians are supposed to be a reflection of this love yet we are disfiguring it into something so unsettling and disgusting that no one wants to come anywhere near it.

Trust me when I say this though. There are those rare Christians out there that show God’s love as close as humanly possible. We (including myself because I try my hardest to be one of these Christians) don’t care if you’ve got tattoos, if you’re L/G/T/B, if you’re a virgin or not, if you smoke, if you wear skimpy clothes. We’ll hang out with you. We won’t judge. We’ll do things for you as if you were our family. And if we do that, you know God does more.

So don’t give up on Christians. There are some good one’s out there. The thing you should focus on (if you’re looking to) is God. He is nothing like His followers.
