Non toxic nail polish

Summer season is coming and nothing's better than a nice mani,tanned skin and sipping a cocktail while sunbathing at the beach.
But did you know that most nail polish are toxic? I personally would have never thought about it while choosing which nail polish to pick.. I would honestly just choose the colour and hope for it not to be the most expensive available ahah.. but guess what.. there's actually a high possibility that our "favourite nail polish" is indeed toxic.
Let's say that in most cases it won't be much of a problem since the "toxic level" is still bearable for the use but still there are people who need to be extra careful because of certain health reason such as pregnancy etc and of course cause this kind of nail polish are everything but environment-friendly!  If you can find yourself concerned in any way  by the above reasons it'd be better for you to double check what you're buying.
The final result on your nails will be exactly the same as a classic nail paint, it will be just as longlasting etc. the main difference will just be in the ingredients used to make it.
Remember that big companies tend to choose "the cheapest option" which will most likely be the unhealthy one to attract as many customers as possible with competitive prices. Remember also to always read all of the ingredients or to just look for informations about the brand and their policy online if you don't know much about the properties of ingredients since you'll easily find everything you need to know before the purchase.
Whatever you'll choice will be remember to just have fun with it and if in winter you've  picked darker shades and went for the "boring option" summer is all about fun and extra touches so just go for it! Here's some of my favourite shades for this season, what's yours?

Simple Dress

Here's chapter 2 of my  selection from Simple Dress. I've already talked about this brand in my last post so I gotta say there's not much to add.. It's basically a website that literally solves your problems if your looking for a wedding dress, a ceremony elegant garment, a top prom dress and so on. My favourite style looking for a elegant dress is "arabian princess" know..embroidered,shiny, rich looking and sexy. I found SO MANY clothes in this category! I definitely  could not show you all but I did my best to try and pick some gems. 
As you may have noticed the selection is all based on colours,  cause for each piece there are soo many colour variations that I could not avoid speaking about it.
What about the satisfaction of having a dress in a certain colour in your mind and getting it in that exact shade without having to adapt?! YES.
 Today is all about prom dresses cause of course prom season is around the corner and we're looking for that dress that we have been imagining since when we were kids but that we can't fine anywhere.. well have a look on simple dress cause honestly I found so many beautiful dresses that not only reflected my inner idea about a dress but that gave me new ideas and made my fall in love at each click.
There's something for every colour, every shape, length and price range.. to give you an idea of what you can find here's some pictures of my favourites :)

Feeling beautiful, good, confident etc is something you can get everyday from your daily life. But feeling like a princess, a proper beauty queen in a wide skirt made of fluff and tulle, shiny reflections and your hair curled and tied up with roses is something you can only dream for the day of your life when you are the absolute protagonist.. which is of course the wedding! Also this time my selection comes from simpledress where I got some great inspiration on women wedding dresses. August is the month when everyone seems to get married and pictures of beautful dresses, make up and hair is all over the web.  Being young doesn't mean not caring about something that won't happen soon.. I found some great cheap wedding dresses and here's just some of the examples. There really is for every taste and wallet.. The ones I picked are all very princessy-like cause well.. that's mt genre.. but of course if you're looking for something less "dramatic" or in a different shade like ivory or just a darker tone of white all of your wishes will be realized after a scroll on the website. In other words if you're looking for a unique wedding dress you know where to go!

5 natural ways to take a pregnancy test

5 natural ways to take a pregnancy test

It is common thinking that commercial tests are more affordable and are easily available whereas natural tests cost you a lot of money. The truth is that natural tests made at home cost practically nothing. Another reason for homemade remedies is that you can hide your pregnancy from people whom you do not want to tell.
Pregnant women have high levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) which is confirmed by tests. Some women ask when to take pregnancy test. The answer to this is when you have the symptoms of pregnancy; you need to take a pregnancy test.

1.    Toothpaste

Toothpaste is a household item that is used every single day by everyone. If you feel that you may be pregnant, then add a little bit of urine to your toothpaste. If the color of the toothpaste changes from its normal color and turns a blue color or has bubbles, it is likely that you are pregnant.
This test may take a few tries as well as some time thus the key is to remain calm and patient.

2.    Sugar

Sugar is another item that is always in our kitchen. This test is cheap and very effective. It also requires a few tries to get it right, but it is worth the struggle. This test should be done first thing when you wake up in the morning so that you have enough and concentrated urine.
For this test, you need 2 to 3 tablespoon of sugar and a little amount of urine in a bowl and mix them together. If the sugar begins to dissolve in the urine mixture, then it shows that you may not be pregnant. On the other hand if the whole mixture clumps together then it shows that you are definitely pregnant.

3.    Soap

Another test is using soap to confirm your pregnancy. In this method, you need to take your bar of soap and put a little amount of urine on the bar and look at what happens. You should see bubbles on the bar of soap. If that’s the case, then it means that you are probably pregnant.

4.    Dandelion

Yes, you read it right! Dandelions are very reliable for this test. If you have a few dandelions in your garden, then this is the test for you. Take out the stems of the dandelions and put the leaves on a plastic sheet and away from the sun.
When you need to urinate, add a small amount of urine on the leaves and make sure that the leaves are completely soaked in the moisture. Check the leaves every other while. If the leaves turn reddish, then it is likely that you are pregnant.

5.    Liquid Bleach

If you are not getting a positive result but are positive about being pregnant, then you can also use liquid bleach. For this test, you need to add less than half the cup or just half cup of bleach in a container and add urine into the mixture. If you see bubbles and hissing sounds, then it is likely that you are pregnant.

Concluding Thoughts

These tests are very cost effective and can easily be done at home. However, you still need to confirm your pregnancy with a real pregnancy test and confirm with a gynecologist who would want to run a few tests and rule out any congenital malformations.

Party season

Yay! Party season, as today is the 2nd of December has officially started!
We all know that this period is just a major excuse to be allowed on loads of glitter and shiny pieces.
Of course what I spend most of my time doing around these early December days is going through fashion clothing online, both to be sure I've got the absolute perfect wishlist ready for Christmas, and to do some online shopping myself in advance for all the fancy parties this season brings.. and of course for the sake of it itself, i's not like we really need a reason to shop online! haha
Anyway, looking around I found soo many cheap prom dresses that could so easily be worn just as a bit more "elegant" party dresses. There really is such a thin line between casual-elegant and too much and there's not really a right or wrong category to shop. You can easily find exactly what you were looking for in a category you didn't even think was worth a try. Believe me prom dresses 2018 might keep great secrets from you!
Whenever I look for a bit more built up looks I always see myself as trying to hard. And I don' really like when you can tell that you spent hours thinking about that look, adding all the accessories in the perfect colour scheme and all that jazz. No matter how elegant and classy the final effect needs to be, I just don't want it to look as if I spent hours doing my hair, nails or whatever. This actually toughens my research, cause yes, I do want to look bougie.. but still.
I'm attaching below some of the inspiration I got from newarrivaldress. It's mostly red and midi-long lenghts. A lot of bare shoulders and silky fabrics. I'm going for a full-on glam this Christmas and the fact that I don't want it to look fake just make it harder to find the perfect ones but it's not changing thins! Are you up for the full on glam kinda look as well or are you keeping it simple for this party season?

Hi everyone! No, I'm not pregnant at all! But with all the news and the lovely ladies around the web waiting for a little one to arrive I could only feel inspired to write this post. From Louise Pentland, to Louise Roe to the very last news of Chiara Ferragni, every fashion girl who's growing up seems to be going trough their first pregnancy. And with all this internet attention for young mums to be there's allways more apps and website where you can keep track of every little sign your body sends you.. without ever feeling unprepared!
Here you can find one of the most interesting and valuable website on the topic I could find, it really is full of interesting things to learn (wether your pregnant or just curious), tips on how to make your life easier when you'll need to take care of a little child and of course all kinds of news on the baby-world: from the best baby laundry detergent to the physical and emotional care of both moms and growing fetus during the whole process, to tricks for pregnant women.
I really thinks that pregnancies are one of those topics that as much as you speak about it, as much as you can get taught about it and all that, when it's you in the first place everything seems different, harder and so unexpected. And even if people told you they felt the same before there's maybe some doubts or questions who are just so for yourself and that you need to sort out on your own, living it through your skin, that's when the utility of this kind of websites and services really come handy, when there's just something you'd like to know more about, just to have your thought clearer!
