best looks for green eyes

How to get Kristen Stuart look

metallic gray eyeshadow
matte light taupe/brown eyeshadow (a slight shimmer eyeshadow will do too)
highlighting eyeshadow (any color that is shimmery peach/white/champagne will do)
black shimmer eyeshadow
matte black pencil eyeliner
mascara/false individual lashes
So here’s what to do. The chart above shows you exactly where you are applying your product so you don’t get confused.
1. Apply your metallic gray eyeshadow all over your lid. After applying it to your lid, take a smaller eyeshadow brush (or a Q-tip) and lightly draw your lower lash line with the eyeshadow. Take your finger and slightly smudge it all – in the chart above, you should have color as shown in the ‘green’ areas.
2. Take your light brown eyeshadow and apply it on top of your gray eyeshadow, (‘pink’ area in the chart above) at the crease of your eye. Blend downwards into your gray shadow so they look blended in together.
3. Take your highlighting eyeshadow and apply it to the inner tear drops to your eye, like in the ‘blue’ above. Blend in.
4. Next, take your black eyeshadow and a very thin eyeliner brush, and apply black shadow to your top and bottom lash lines. On your top lash line, blend a little more shadow into the outer corners of your eye, like shown in ‘yellow’ in the chart above.
5. Take your eyeliner and line your top and bottom lashes, on top of what you just did with the black shadow. You may also line your waterline if you want to!
6. Finish off with tons of mascara. Kristen also uses individual false eyelashes on the outer corners from time to time, so have fun with those too! You can read how do that in my post, How to apply the false eyelashes.

Eat all You Want for ThanksGiving and lose Weight!

The morning before: Eat breakfast! After all, research has shown that breakfast eaters eat fewer calories overall during the day. But just any old breakfast won't do ... Confession: On Thanksgiving mornings, I used to get up and go buy bagels, doughnuts, and sugar-laden lattes for my family. What a huge no-no—eating simple sugars and carbs in the morning leads to even more sugar and carb cravings throughout the day! So, by having that cinnamon sugar bagel at 10 a.m., you're scheduling an appointment to dive face first into the stuffing at 4.
A smarter bet would be to have oatmeal with walnuts or a high-fiber toast with a shmear of peanut butter. The combo of protein and fiber (shoot for 5 grams of each) will keep anyone satisfied without turning them into a ravenous beast

Before/during The Big Meal: You've heard it before: "Fill up on veggies." OK, sure, but what kinds are particularly helpful at "priming" your system to take on a big binge?  says your best bet is to go with root veggies, like yams and potatoes. Besides, they're in your house for the big meal anyway. "When steamed or slow-baked, then cooled slightly, these form the most resistant starch—a form of starch that thinks it's a fiber," says Feder. "It's been shown to increase satiety, plus you end up consuming fewer calories and having the calories you eat last longer." And root veggies also convert into glycogen more readily—that's the form of glucose that is burned at a slow and steady pace to keep blood sugar levels on an even keel, explains Feder. In other words, your best defense against that cranberry mold is to go for the baked potato or yam (ideally sans butter, sour cream, and brown sugar) ASAP.
Before dessert: Go for a walk or throw a football around for 20 minutes. According to super celeb-trainer Jackie Warner, holiday overeating raises levels of the stress hormone cortisol, but moderate physical activity can quash this spike, simultaneously inhibiting your appetite
For the next week post-Turkey Day: First of all, if you had a slice of pecan pie and a slice of pumpkin pie—on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday—don't beat yourself up! Second, you can easily detoxify by sipping a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon before each meal. Warner touts lemon as a natural liver detoxifier packed with vitamin C, which can help detoxify a body that's fighting to metabolize extra calories. A bonus: The drink may also suppress your appetite, so you can reduce your calorie intake ever so slightly over the following few days to "make up for" the feast

How to care for your hair.

Taking care fo your hair is very important, it is what makes us feel beautiful and it hels us change in just a cuple of hours. My first tip on your hair would be to never color you hair at home, ofcourse if you cant afford to go to a hairstylist just do it at home or save up until you can. I cant tell you how many people ive seen who have come in to the salon with self colored hair and they end up spending 2 times more money than if they had just came over to th salon in the first place. Coloring our own hair can leave you with spots of different colors and for those who decide to bleach their own hair I say good luck and i hope your hair doesnt fall off.
My second tip would be to buy a good shampoo and a good leave in conditioner, and buy something that is acording to your hair type. Also ask your hairstylist for tips on your hair, no one knows more on your hair than your hair stylist

How to care for your dog

       All new and experience dog owners know that taking care of a dog is not always so easy so my next blog is about how to make it a bit easier on new dog owners who are dealing with the crying puppy at night and those little accidents that happen even when we take all the steps to prevent them :).

  1. When you bring your new pup into his/hers new home let them roam around the house and don't fallow them just let them be, yes they will mark a few places but in my experience its better this way so the pup will be able to know that hes been there before and its not a strange place.
  2. After you let your pup roam around make sure to let him know where his food and water bowl are and always make sure he has water.
  3. Start teaching him right away, or else you will have a really unruly puppy.
  4. Feed him at the same time you will eat and keep him in a room away from where you are eating so he will learn not to beg for food.
  5. Do not feed you dog chocolate as it can be fatal but once in a while a small peace wont hurt. We believe that dogs should eat veggies and some raw meat once in a while after all they will always have a wild side :D any bird bones should not be given to dogs epically if they are cooked as they can splinter and cause ruptures in your dogs tummy.
  6. Keep lots of toys around for your dog or pup to keep them from chewing your furniture.
  7. Walk your dog regularly its a great bonding experience and keeps your dog from being too stressed, and it will keep you fit.
  8. Wash your dog once a month or as much as you seem fit or as much as your vet advises you too. Always be care full to not get water in your doggies ears.

So here are some tips I will keep updating them as soon as possible!
