Gut Health: My Experience and Tips from The Pros

It’s great that gut health is finally getting all the attention it deserves, I also like the fact that you can even read books written by doctors which are simplified,  so that even people with no medical background can understand them. I personally read and liked Gut by Giulia Enders when it came out, and it explained a lot of things.

While it is amazing to have an understanding of how things work, I still trust such important issues only to qualified specialists. Hence last summer I went to a private clinic to run all the tests, as a few things were bothering me, and to find out the issue. Long story short, it cost me a quite a lot and I had a strict diet combined with medication for a few months, but it was absolutely worth it.

This is why I am delighted to bring you a collaboration about the gut health, and would encourage you to take it seriously. It’s not just your general health but also your mood and the way your skin looks.

Have a dicky tummy? Here’s how to make sure your gut is healthy

Everyone has experienced the not so lovely feeling of having stomach problems. Whether it’s from a bit of food that isn’t “agreeing” with us, or something in your diet that acts as a trigger for your insides to turn a little crazy, that feeling that something inside is draining all your energy isn’t a nice one.

So how do you know if your stomach or digestive system has issues, if your gut is healthy and what can be done to get your digestive health is such a good condition that it will feel like it can ace any tests?

Here is a short guide to having a healthy gut and what to do to make it better.

Firstly, know what gut health encapsulates

My New Hairstyle for Summer

I had a relatively long hair and my natural colour for years (here is a photo). And… a) I have a lot of hair but it is thin and doesn’t look that good b)I had the same, more or less, length for years and years; plus I did not colour it so I got very bored, as I used to change my hair style all the time in the past.

This is why back in February I’ve asked to chop off all the thin and damaged hair, so I ended up with a shoulder length hair style.  It was a big change but once I was over a slight shock, I knew that I was ready for more experiments. This is why last week, I changed my hair style completely, and I even had it coloured  for the first time in years.

It is nothing too dramatic, just a darker shade of cool toned brown which is still not as cool (toned), as I wanted it to be. My natural colour is  really cool toned, and I hate anything warm/reddish on myself. But  I find that it is even harder to get a spot-on dark hair than blonde (I was blonde for several years).

Photos Of The Week. Part 1

This post was actually scheduled for last week but since it got deleted, here is attempt No2  with some changes.

I personally love looking at some radom photos people post, usually from Instargam, so I thought I’d do my own version. We will see how it goes…

Maybe this will be a regular feature.

A Must Watch: 100 Years of Beauty

Several weeks ago I discovered 100 years of beauty videos and got hooked. These are absolutely brilliant. They show how the [beauty] looks were transformed during hundred years in different countries: from Korea and India to Mexico and Iran.

100 years of beauty videos Korea must watch about makeup

These videos actually show why I personally love makeup, for me it is all about changing the way you look according to the way you want to look that day/moment. I like how beauty helps with self-expression, and you can match it to your personality and taste, so to speak. Because one day you want a red lip and false lashes, and the other day it is all about the natural “no makeup” look – so why not experimenting?!

Isn’t it amazing how the same girl looks so different with just changing her hairstyle and colours she puts on her face?
