Food for Depression

Food for Depression 



It is January, and now officially winter everywhere. Since I live in Florida, our cold is just arriving for its short while. During the winter months people are much more likely to become depressed. People can become depressed from the cold weather, the cloudy skies, staying warm with layers of clothes, your monotonous job. There are endless reasons why someone could get down and feel a little depressed. The good news is, there are so many ways to fight depression with food, eating the right kind. Here are two examples of foods to eat to feel less sad and lessen depression. 


If you are in need of a pick-me-up, or a mood booster, here are foods for a brighter mood. Boosting your mood can elavate you to another level. They can turn that frown upside down… if you let them. 


What is it in our bodies that keep us happy? Do you know? This chart shows what you need to eat to keep a happy brain. 


In our brains we have 4 chemicals that keep us regulated and happy. Without them, even having one low can cause you to feel fatigue and create anxiety, up to depression. So learn these four chemicals and feed your brain. 





Along side depression is stress and anxiety. There are so many foods that can help you ease your stress, and lessen anxiety. I have struggled with anxiety for over a decade now, and I have come to learn that I act nicer and feel happier when I have these foods in my body. 



So stay healthy and happy this winter season. Eat the right foods, supplements and vitamins, whatever it calls for to keep a happy brain, and help stay away from depression. Along with alleviating depression.

I just love this look, and you can’t go wrong with faux fur. They make so many different looks and colors in the fur, you have so many choices, and they’re sold everywhere. It’s not hard to find one you can love.

No Muffin Top this Fall! 

No Muffin Top this Fall! 


Now that summer has officially ended and it’s fall, it’s never too early to start preparing yourself for the fall/winter months of wearing larger, thicker clothing, and it’s so easy to let yourself go without even noticing. Well, be ahead of yourself this year by starting to add these specific exercises to your routines. I have found three wonderful and different exercise workouts for your muffin top, or non-muffin top, whichever. But if you do these exercises during the months where we don’t really get to see our bodies, like in summer time when we wear short shorts and flip-flops, you will still find yourself looking hot after you take off that huge sweater you’re wearing during the coldest times! 


Here’s some great tips of what NOT to eat: 

Since everyone loves smoothies, I found these great recipes for smoothies that help you lose weight.

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends


The trends in 2016 have definitely been bold choices. New color palates and big bold eyes and lips from makeup. 2016 really did some game changing when it comes to makeup looks. Eyes are much more crazy, but beautifully put on, with daring colors. Shady eye looks with lots of eye liner and shadow are being seen everywhere. 


“The finishing touch to any ensemble is the way you draw up your visage. The colors you use, the lines you make or the lack of it all can make or break a look accordingly. Just like an artist on her canvas, you must look at your eyes, lips, contours, cheekbones and even neckline to create your own masterpiece. No matter what the final product is expected to be, your makeup will be the one thing other than your clothing itself that stands out the most. As such, we have taken it upon ourselves to check out the top fall/ winter 2016-2017 makeup trends for you, considering that the colder seasons show off too little skin and the majority of color will most probably fall on your face.”


“Since 2016 is all about individuality and a unique character, as well as blending in the androgynous look to some effect, that is more or less what we expected out of the fall 2016 beauty trends as well. Which is your favorite look to emulate this fall?”

#1: The Truly Red Lips

“Okay, this is a classic. It is also one of the top fall 2016 makeup trends, having dominated for the spring and doing no less for the fall and winter seasons. It is lovely beyond belief, with brighter and darker shades taking to the stage, but always staying nice and cherry. It appears that red lipstick is here to stay so you can definitely invest in a few tubes of awesome color.”

“We see the bright red lips dominate on whiter skinned models actually, but that does not mean that your ethnic background should prevent you from taking on this trend. Proenza Schouler ensures it is just about the only color on the visage, which makes for a striking look, something Cushnie et Ochs is also a major fan of. The red lips are definitely a good enough statement on their own.”

#2: The Gothic Lips

“Take a trip to the dark side this fall with lips that tell a story that belongs to underground. It can be as dark as black or merely a perfect plum, it can be paired with no other colors to the face or have incredibly nightmarish appeals. It can look pretty or downright out of a horror story. It matters not really. The Goth is in when it comes to the fall/ winter 2016-2017 makeup trends and you can wear it as softly or as fanatically as you wish.”

“Marc Jacobs went for truly Gothic, all black lips and strange liners with brows bleached out, while Rodarte and Nicholas K were quite content with bringing in the pretty, keeping brows thinner but natural and just plain focusing on the purple hued lips. The Gothic lips are simply divine and definitely a top trend contender, with Gigi Hadid bringing in the sexy while stomping down the Fenty x Puma runway by Rihanna and sporting the matte-black pout. The best, though, we would say are the rouge-noir lips that some of the other designer houses brought forth.”

#3: Pastel and Bright Pink Lips

“You know those soft, pretty and pink pouts little children have? The lips of innocence really that have not been affected by the colorings of life as a whole. This is in style to keep to the barely there appeals, with youthful stains to the pouts coming out on stage with feathered edges and coquettish effects ready to seduce one through inspiring the natural inclination to go for the ladies that are left untouched… the virgins, per se.”


“Tanya Taylor, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Banana Republic are only a few labels that have utilized one of the prettiest fall 2016 makeup trends in terms of lipstick to really bring out the youthfulness in their models. Gorgeous baby lips appear at Chanel while paired with some graphic eye shadow in order to almost upset the balance of the features and redirect the gaze constantly. A sugary baby pink color on the Miu Miu lips ensures the eyes focus more on the brows on these ladies that are all well-groomed yet nice and thick.”

#4: No Color Added Lips

“Sometimes there is nothing added, sometimes, it is just a touch of lip gloss. No matter what, this trend keeps things as natural as they come when it comes to the lips and there is nothing lovelier than that. You see a fresh face with the clear lips at Valentino, a slightly chapped loop to the pout at Balmain, and pale pink rose petal lips at the evanescent Elie Saab Fashion Week show.”
