The Number One Beauty Trick

It's a FREE hack!

The Number One Beauty Trick

Social media has determined that beauty depends on the way a person's Instagram looks. Instead of being comfortable in our own skin, we work hard to be the "perfect" person with a themed Instagram page. In order to feel beautiful, you have to spend a lot of money on the cutest clothes and expensive makeup. In reality, the highlighter on your cheekbones does not make you glow.

I do love to go shopping for cute clothes but wearing those clothes every day does not make me feel beautiful. Whether I am wearing a nice sundress and heels or a Sigma Kappa t-shirt with athletic shorts, I feel beautiful because of what I am feeling from the inside. I don't spend all this money on clothes and makeup in order to feel confident, beautiful, and strong.

Growing up watching YouTube videos on how to contour my nose or get the perfect beach wave hair I discovered my own beauty trick. The best part about it is the cost. FREE, that is what the price tag is on my daily beauty regimen. Being a college student I have to budget my money which means all my money goes to food and gas, to go to the store and buy my food. I spend a total of $8 on my makeup, and that is mascara.

Happiness is the key to beauty. A smile that shines with true joy can turn someone's appearance completely around. I feel beautiful when I am happy, and when I am smiling so much my eyes squint, I cannot control the laugh escaping between my lips.

For me, it is those I have surrounded myself with. There is a not a day I can recall that I don't have a smile on my face. My best friend inspires me every day to not only constantly work towards bettering myself and being a good role model but being happy. Having people in your life that work towards happiness is a major key to gaining your own happiness.

In a world with so much darkness, where people are constantly bringing themselves down, there needs to be someone who is not afraid to let the light in. Although some days you may not feel like smiling, finding joy in even the smallest thing can turn your day around. My happiness is through people in my life, but that does not have to be yours. The thing that makes you the happiest does not even have to be a living thing. A song can be the item that just brings you utter bliss. Whatever is it that makes you smile will also make you feel the most beautiful.

Go out into the world with the goal of smiling every day. When you do, you'll see the world from a completely different side.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
