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.

Urban Decay did well, and brought out a GOT collection. And it doesn’t matter whether or not you actually need those products, they are a must for a fan. I mean, I was obsessed with the UD palettes years ago, and I would never part with my Alice one (see here and here), although I never use it. I think this palette is the same thing. It’s a great collectable item. Just look at it!

Game Of Thrones Eye Shadow Palette (£45/$65). I love the press release so I will include it: “Use this arsenal of 20 shades to declare your allegiance to House Targaryen, House Lannister, House Stark, or to defeat the White Walkers. Jewel tones and earthy neutrals give way to dark metallics and frosty shimmers, all of which can be customized with our four transformer shades. Prepare for battle with Stormborn, a glittery metallic purple, and unwind with Lannister Red, a matte reddish brown. Choose your look and claim your rightful place on the Iron Throne”.

Beach & Holidays Makeup Tips

Summer is the time when we all are enjoying our vacations or just the weekends near the pool or by the ocean. While some women are more than happy to be bare-faced, some still want to enhance their look with the help of the makeup.

Eyes

As we know, eye brows frame the face, so never underestimate their importance. To make yours look groomed and polished try using Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Brow, the formula is long-lasting and water resistant, so it will stay on for hours without smudging.

According to various surveys, mascara is the most popular makeup item, so a lot of women don’t want to be without it even on the beach. But what if your favorite mascara is not available in a waterproof version? Anastasia
