These Are the Items You Need for Stronger and Longer Lashes
Some people are #blessed with naturally thick and luscious lashes. These girls go out with absolutely no mascara or falsies on, but still look absolutely glam-ready. While there's no doubt that a trusty mascara and a pair of falsies can make your lash game instantly dramatic, there are just days when you want to have dramatic peepers minus all the works. The good news is, it's totally possible, Candy Girls! You don't have to splurge on expensive lash serums because with these household items you probably already have at home, you can achieve the same results! So read up and be on your way to thicker and stronger lashes, STAT!
Olive oil has been around for ages and has been used for a myriad of different beauty recipes. Apart from its popular culinary significance, did you know that olive oil is also famous for enhancing hair growth? This multi-use product can moisturize and strengthens hair follicles to prevent breakage and brittleness. Nourish your lashes every night with a light coat of extra virgin olive oil using a Q-tip for healthier and fuller lashes.
Like olive oil, coconut oil is another miracle product that you probably already have lying around the house. An all-natural coconut oil is safe to put around your eyes and won't irritate them like some mascaras or eye makeup does. So pour a few drops of coconut oil on a cotton ball and dab it gently on your lashes before hitting the sheets for extra shine.
Castor oil contains Vitamin E and tons of other nutrients, which help promote hair growth. A word of caution though, when it comes to using Castor oil, because of its thick consistency, less is always more. So make sure to apply it sparingly. Use it together with coconut oil for an effective concoction that'll get you thicker lashes in just a few weeks!

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
