    How Do You Get Yourself Out Of A Slump?

    There are few things in life more frustrating than finding yourself in some sort of slump. Most of the time it comes from emotional difficulty or dissatisfaction with your life overall. Of course, there are also plenty of occasions where you simply feel like you’re in a slump for seemingly no reason! The problem is that it’s surprisingly hard, once you’re in a slump, to get yourself out again. Even doing the simplest things can feel like a huge amount of effort and it can often seem as though there’s no point in bothering in the first place. But of course! You can always get out of any slump no matter what situation you’re in and to help you do just that here are a few simple ways to go about “unslumping” yourself.

    Style Without Sin: Budget-Friendly Tips For Looking Your Best

    There’s no escaping the fact that appearances count for a lot in this world. We are constantly being judged by others for our looks. Perhaps more importantly, our sense of self-worth is often heavily influenced by aesthetic details. Consequently, getting your style right is essential throughout all stages of your life.
    While fashion and appearances are crucial, the love of looking good shouldn’t leave you facing financial problems. Therefore, finding ways to perfect your style without breaking the bank balance should be top of the agenda. Here’s how you can do just that.

    Focus On Natural Beauty

    Forget fashion for a second; natural beauty will always have a greater impact that any specific piece of clothing. Moreover, a pretty face will form the foundation of every outfit. Choosing the right anti-aging products can work wonders while getting a good night’s sleep will also bring huge rewards.
    Increased water consumption will also have a positive influence. Perhaps most importantly, you should appreciate the significance of a winning smile. Whether it’s getting braces like I did or improving dental hygiene doesn’t matter. Either way, working with your natural features is the best investment you’ll ever make.
    Of course, it also pays to keep your body in good shape too. That doesn’t mean you need to look like a magazine model – even they don’t look that good in real life. Nevertheless, a better figure will make all outfits look their best. When added to the health benefits, this becomes a no-brainer.

    Shop Around

    There’s nothing wrong with a little retail therapy. However, making your money work harder is imperative at all times. Not only will this enable you to buy more clothes with your funds, but it should enable you to enjoy other aspects of your life too.
    We all love having a few statement pieces and designer items. Using Macy’s coupons and promo codes May 2017 allows you to acquire those items at a fraction of the cost. As well as resulting in less damage to the bank balance, it should generate a feeling of greater satisfaction too.

    Meanwhile, it’s always worth considering whether you actually want an item. There’s no bigger waste than letting clothes collect dust in the back of your wardrobe.

    Be Creative

    We all need to freshen up our look from time to time. Sometimes, though, our clothes are in perfect condition. The only reason that we want to replace them is that we’ve grown bored of the design. With a little creativity, you can enjoy the best of both worlds by gaining a new look without the costs.
    Upcycling has become an increasingly popular idea in recent times. This guide to fashion upgrades should help you breath new life into your garments. In addition to saving funds, it’s a great way to express yourself. Perhaps best of all, you can be guaranteed that nobody else will be wearing the same designs.
    Of course, you’ll still want to shop for new clothes too. However, having one or two unique creations in the closet can be a great addition. If nothing else, it’s a great way to juggle your passion for designer labels with your need for funds.

    Natural Hair Feature: Bianta

    Tell me about you, a short bio

    About myself? Well, I go by the name of Bianta. I am a young St. Maartener born and raised. I have an interest for trying out new things.
    How long have you been natural?
    I have currently returned to the natural lifestyle late November 2016.
    Have you ever had a relaxer? Why did you decide to go back natural?
    I have been relaxed twice. When I entered high school and for the next time in September 2015. I never really decided the first time I went natural in 2013. I just had a two-sided Mohawk totally undecided and I did not add in any cream until mid to late 2015. I found the natural hair way too coarse to handle so I texturized it (biggest regret ever). My hair started breaking and my ends became damaged, so my hairstylist Ms. Rachelle of Addicted Hair Lounge did a great job chopping it all off and giving me a permed pixie cut which I loved. I went back to the creamy crack one time after and had not returned since. My hair was getting back all natural during the course of 2016 and right before my birthday in late November of 2016 I was surprised by my boss and two office colleagues and dropped off at the Addicted Hair Lounge for a natural big chop by Ms. Rachelle again. This decision was planned in advance but not decided for the given moment it happened up until it was time to really make a decision on the salon chair and I just went for it.

    Have you ever had a relaxer? Why did you decide to go back natural?

    Yes, I had relaxer back when I was living in Holland in 2014 and when I came returned to St. Maarten my hair was a disaster; it was severely damaged, so I decided to go back natural.

    Have you ever considered going back to the creamy crack?

    Hell no! I did not chop it off just to go back lol, and I can just easily get a wig if I want to wear my hair straight.
