13 Tips for Simple Beauty

Yearning for beauty perfection? Ask, and ye shall receive.
  1. I want glorious, ready-to-wear hair. If spending hours wrestling with bulky tools does not appeal to you, then get great hair by starting right. Cleanse and treat tresses with products that promise silk, shine, and vitality.
  2. I want to smell great all day. Slather on fab-smelling body lotion right after your morning shower and for sure you'll smell marvelous through dismissal. Cream-type products have better staying power than liquid ones.
  3. I want baby-soft skin. Massage body butter onto damp skin; this way, moisture is retained.
  4. I want flawless-looking skin. Even out your complexion and mask flaws with a product that lightens dark spots and distributes light-diffusing particles.
  5. I want a brighter smile. Consume minimal amounts of stain-causing food and drinks such as cabbage, tea, and coffee. You can try brushing your teeth with baking soda toothpaste. Drink lots of water too, to rinse your mouth of potential discolorants.
  6. I want longer, flirtier lashes. If you're not too keen on getting lash extensions or wearing flasies every day, then invest in really good mascara that guarantees length, volume, and curl.
  7. I want a cute new 'do. Bored with your hair? Then change your part! Or inject some color. If you're ready for a huge change, do it with sass and class. Choose an edgy vut, but make sure it matches your personality. There's nothing worse than having mane that looks wrong on you.
  8. I want scar-free, even-toned legs. Short of getting laser surgery, scars are most likey to stay. But you can minimize their appearance by applying tinted moisturizer onto your lefs. It's like foundation, but for another part of your body.
  9. I want soft, pretty feet. Get a pedicure at least twice a month to keep your footsies flip-flop ready. Massage them every night with a rich cream, then sleep with socks on.
  10. I want luscious lips. Fancy a pout like Scarlett Johansson? Apply gloss infused with collagen and light-reflecting particles. You will appear to have fuller lips. Tingling sensation caused by lip-plumping ingredients is temporary and need not be feared.
  11. I want rosy cheeks. Want to look like you worked-out without actually having to work out? Pinch your cheeks 10 times for a flush, and apply cream blush onto apples of your cheeks for staying power.
  12. I want a tanned, healthy glow. Don't let gloomy weather get the best of you. Rub sunless tanning lotion onto freshly showered (and exfoliated) skin, and give the Brazilian girls a run for their money.
  13. I want to banish the dark circles under my eyes. If sleep escapes you constantly, reach for peeled potato slices from the fridge and place them on top of your eyes; leave on for 10 minutes. Want instant results? Go for a brightening eye cream.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
