Soul Mate Poem 

Soul Mate Poem

They say love is blind, but I saw you coming from miles away. 

I have seen you in my dreams, and wondered who you were. 

Now we are together, and soul mates are just what we are. 

No matter how much time has gone by, I’ll never forget the first time you looked at me, and we fell in love.

Noopept and its Benefits 

Noopept and its Benefits

“Noopept is the brand name for N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester, a Nootropic molecule similar to Piracetam. Noopept may alleviate cognitive decline.”

“Noopept is the brand name for N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester , a synthetic nootropic molecule.”

“Noopept has a similar effect to piracetam, in that it provides a mild cognitive boost after supplementation. Noopept also provides a subtle psychostimulatory effect.”

The other week, my husband bought the Noopept you see above, and told me that I should start taking it to help with my memory. He told me how it can help reverse memory loss and help with cognition. So far, I’ve been taking it for about 10 days and I can already sense that something has happened, or is happening to my memory. I have been able to recall certain memories with a much clearer view, so to say. It’s very hard to explain. I feel like I can reach certain memories in my head, but not all of them like the way I can, now that I’ve been using Noopept. I certainly recommend it for anyone at any age. Don’t wait till it’s too late to reverse damage. Help your brain today. 

“Noopept is one of the strongest nootropics available on the market today. It provides a boost to overall cognition and has a slight psychostimulatory effect. Contrary to most nootropics, Noopept’s effects start within mere minutes of ingestion making it an excellent choice right before mentally demanding tasks.”

“Noopept is a nootropic supplement that’s been getting a lot of attention lately. It has close ties to the popular racetam family of nootropics that are known for their benefits on cognitive ability as well their neuroprotective properties. What makes Noopept a unique nootropic in your toolbox is that its effects are felt almost immediately after ingestion.”

“Many nootropics can take days, weeks, or even months, for their full effects to kick in but Noopept is another story. Another nootropic that compares to Noopept’s immediate effects is phenylpiracetam.”

“Currently, Noopept is being prescribed and distributed in Russia and its surrounding countries for its nootropic properties. Its popularity has drastically increased and is now distributed worldwide.”

“Noopept as a nootropic is commonly compared to piracetam and aniracetam. It works via a similar mechanism as piracetam but is estimated to be 1,000 to 5,000 times more potent. This doesn’t imply that its effect is more profound, it just attunes itself better to the brain’s receptors. As a result, Noopept can be taken in relatively smaller doses to produce similar effects as that of Piracetam.”

What are benefits of taking Noopept? 

•Memory and Learning

“Noopept’s most emphasized benefit is how it can enhance memory and improve the learning process. Noopept, like Piracetam, assists with memory formation, but with additional benefits not present in the latter, which are memory consolidation and memory retrieval. Noopept facilitates the proper management of all forms of stimuli as they are processed by the brain, which allows for better memory retrieval. In other words, signals being processed by our senses are more streamlined as they are transported into our brains in the form of memory.”

“Through the continued use of Noopept, you will notice that you can digest more information and process it more readily for use in your daily activities. You might even recall names, places, maybe a word spoken in a chance encounter, a song title that you thought you had forgotten before, and so on. Memory lapses will be a thing of the past, or at least kept to a minimum.”


•Neuroprotective Properties

“Studies show that Noopept has high neuroprotective properties. The stimulation of the neurons caused by the health supplement prevents oxidative damage and apoptosis in the human brain. Many patients dealing with cognitive impairment regularly can benefit from a regular dosage of Noopept to prevent further dissociative cognitive functions.”


•Increased levels of NGF

“NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) is a unique protein in the body that is involved in the growth, maintenance, and survival of nerve cells, including brain cells. NGF is also considered to be a key player in neurogenesis, your body’s ability to create new cells.”


“By increasing NGF levels in the brain, we support the mechanisms involved in neurogenesis which improves the performance of neural networks within the brain, allowing for new neural connections. The result means potentially improved mental abilities in virtually all areas of cognition.”




•Increased levels of BDNF

“BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor) is another protein in the body that has a similar role to the NGF mentioned above. BDNF is considered one of the most important molecules involved in memory, playing a vital role in both short-term and long-term memory formation.”

•Improves Associations between Brain Hemispheres

“Both the right and left hemispheres of the brain have their own localized functions. Through the use of Noopept, each of these functions can be enhanced through the synthesis of various memories, ideas, and stimuli. There are nuances among these functions that enhance the way we think. That is why a lot of people have claimed that their quality of life had a significant improvement when taking Noopept in regular doses.”

Look of the Week – Off-the-Shoulders Tops


This week, my favorite look is the off-the-shoulder top or blouse. There’s so many different styles of tops that come off the shoulders that you can wear this style for every occasion. That’s why I like the look so much. Versatility. You can dress up or down your shirt depending on bottoms and shoes. I have gathered cute outfits for work, personal life, going out on a date, and many more. Always be inspired to look your best. It reflects who you are.

Yup! It’s back! The lip ring has made its, I don’t know, second, maybe third comeback since the 90’s. But now it’s the middle of the lower lip that has every trend setter wanting this look. From the one and only, scandalous Kim Kardashian shows us how she flaunts hers. 


I’m not sure how I feel about another lip piercing coming back as a trend, but at least with this look, you can get a fake cuff and put it on your lip to look like a real one. And I do like trends I can take off easily, and this sure would be one. Check out these sexy lips all pierced different ways on the middle of the lower lip. Are you a trend setter? Or follower?

Kids of Bipolar or Schizophrenic Parents More Likely to Face Early Mental Health Issues

Kids of Bipolar or Schizophrenic Parents More Likely to Face Early Mental Health Issues



This is a wonderful article I found and had to share it with you, my readers. It deals with something I always think about, passing the bipolar gene to your child. It’s not something I’m willing to do, but for those who do decide to have kids, good for you and good luck, with all sincerity. I cannot imagine seeing someone that I made hurt so deeply because of this disease, so that is why my husband and I have choosen to stay child-free. But to each their own. I’m going to highlight the article’s main points, but be sure to read the whole article to really understand. 


“New research shows that children born to one or both parents with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder are more likely to suffer mental health problems by the age of seven.”


“Presented at the International Early Psychosis Association (IEPA) meeting in Milan, Italy, in October 2016, the Danish High Risk and Resilience Study — VIA 7 — included 522 children who were seven at the start of the study.”

“Of the children, 202 were born to at least one person diagnosed with schizophrenia (located using Danish registries), while 120 of them were born to least one parent diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The remaining 200 children were born to parents without any of these diagnoses.”


“The results show children born to parents with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder score higher than the other children using a tool called the child behavior checklist (CBCL). This is a widely used questionnaire with more than 100 questions given to parents and teachers that describes behavioral problems or signs of possible illness, the researchers said, explaining a higher score represents more problems.”

Sample CBCL: 


“Mean scores for children in the schizophrenia group were 27.2, the bipolar group 23.5, and control group 17.1.”

“There were also marked differences between the three groups concerning psychopathology, neurocognition, motor functioning and their home environment, according to the study’s findings.”


“Children born to parents with schizophrenia, and to a minor extent also bipolar disorder, were found to have increased risk for problems such as anxiety, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and stress/adjustment disorder, and were also more likely to display neurocognitive problems or delays. They also were more likely to grow up in families with a lower social status and a higher risk of adverse life events, according to the researchers.”


“She noted the researchers plan to follow the children until age 11, conducting a new assessment before puberty.”

““We do not know if the impaired children will catch up in neurocognitive areas or if their mental problems will be in remission, but since social aspects and environmental factors contribute significantly to child development — and they were quite marked already at age seven years — we are expecting similar or even worse results could be seen at age 11 years,” she said.”

Virgo Essential Oil Blend – March

Virgo Essential Oil Blend – March 



I have been using Essential Oils for years now, and with that experience, I have created my favorite blend, which is made perfectly for Virgo’s. Virgo born people are hard workers, which in turn makes them very stressed out. They are positive most of the time, so uplifting scents are a big part of this special Virgo blend, made by me. It was developed throughout a year of trying out different scents to see which ones most affected me. If you are a Virgo, and you enjoy essential oils, this Blend will calm you down, keep your spirits up, and make you feel good.

Fairytale Makeup 

Fairytale Makeup

These makeup jobs are some of the best fairytale looks a person could do! These eyes, lips, cheeks, and faces are all unique and oh so beautiful! Wouldn’t you say? The first picture below blew my mind with the color chosen to be used for that look. It was an intense color, yet was subtly put on, matching the hair. The second picture struck me as gorgeous due to the way this makeup job was done. I love the pink color streaming down the middle of the nose and in the eyebrows. It’s so pretty! And the sequins under the eyes are muchly needed to make the make up pop. The third picture captured my heart with the almost periwinkle color on her hair, face, cheeks, eyes, and lips. Periwinkle is my favorite color, so I’m probably biased to love anything that color. I won’t go on about the rest, you decide what is the prettiest look.
