AMAZFIT BIP WATCH review

Hi everyone, I hope you are feeling well during this crazy time. I have not been here for a while because of the situation but here I am.

In my previous post I posted a little teaser about the product I will talk about in this post, so yes, this is a AMAZFIT BIP sports watch that I actually bought a birthday present for my husband about 3 years ago but it remains abandoned and closed in its original packaging.

guess what?! I took over his watch and made it mine.

Lately sports watches are completely in fashion, even for people who do not necessarily do sports.

It is comfortable, flattering, waterproof and also provides completely useful data.

Before the initial use of the watch, you need to install an app, which is really use-friendly, and synchronize between the phone and the watch so that you can receive alerts about incoming calls, messages, etc.

The watch measures steps so you can set goals for yourself through the app and keep track of your progress during the day. The phone also measures the heart beats (hypochondriacs – do not get too stressed abiut it)

On the watch you can also see the weather, you can use the timer, compass and many other things. The watch also comes with a charging case that connects with a USB cable.

I am very enthusiastic about the watch, the pleasure is all mine ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™‚

Smoothies, shorts and skirts

Hi everyone, i will start with some good news, I got 82 out of 100 in the test in a course I failed twice! That is, i can finally put this course behind me and I can continue with my degree in literature.

Last week I got blood test results I did and of course the results showed that i have anemia, but in addition I lack various vitamins and I feel weak recently. I want to get what my body needs from natural ingredients rather than from pills so I decided that I want, among other things, to drink a smoothie every morning with all the products that will strengthen me and my body.

So I surfed the internet and found this video that, besides the recipes for healthy and nutritious smoothies, also gave me an idea for convenient storage of the ingredients that saved me the preparation phase. Tomorrow is the day when I buy groceries at the supermarket so I made a note of all the ingredients I need and I promise to keep you updated on the result.

It is also very important to drink a large amount of water, since I left the sugary drink and started drinking water my facial skin just became more radiant and healthier. There is no replacement for water. speaking of facial skin, I have to recommend Pixi’s Glow Tonic, it is slightly more greasy than the rose tonic I used to use but the result is more glowing, I absolutely loved it!

Recently, I don’t feel like eating heavy meals and I have no appetite so I decided to put some corn in the oven. I mixed some salt with oil and smeared the corn on the cob with the mixture and put them in a preheated oven at 220 degrees for 50 minutes. The result, Yami!

Later in the day, I arranged my closet. In the last few weeks, in this heavy heat of Israel, I can only wear shorts and short skirts, I can’t even wear long pants, just the thought of it makes me uncomfortable shivers. Here are some of my new shorts and skirts. Notice that everyone fits with a white T-shirt.

That’s it for this time, xoxo.

Iron girl

On Tuesday I spent most of my day studying, as I wrote in my previous post, in two weeks from now I will have a very important test in a course that I failed twice !!! So this time I’m investing everything to get past it and move on.
The last days are insanely hot days, days in which it is impossible to leave home because the heavy heat. We decided to chill the kids a bit and took them out to the pool / fountain in the afternoon and the kids ran in between the streams and cooled down. I live in Ashdod, a city that I think is one of the most beautiful in the country, and here’s another beautiful piece from the city I’ve lived in since 1993.

On Wednesday morning, I went to visit my sister and my mother, and as always, we sat and eat a cake and drink a cup of coffee in the balcony in front of the day. And of course my sister didn’t let me go empty-handed, my sister bought me a stunning black swimsuit from American Eagle, the swimsuit is just perfect! In addition to it, she gave me two stunning dresses she stopped wearing, so thank you my sister.

Later I went looking for a good sunscreen on drugstore and I bought a transparent facial sunscreen with 50 SPF. After smearing it at home, I felt it was slightly oily, a fact that upset me. In addition to sunscreen, I also purchased a Vitamin C Enriched Facial Serum, which helps slow down the aging process. And again, after I got home, I tried it and found out that it has a shimmery shade, if I know it before I bought it I don’t really know if I had go for it. Anyway, after applying the serum my skin felt nice and soft. The product is somewhat reminiscent of the glam glow shimmering face cream.

On Thursday morning, after six months, I decided that I had to go to a nurse at my health fund and remove an earring that was stuck in my right ear for a half year now. Six months ago I had an ear infection and it swelled so much that the earring was swallowed by the earlobe. And the hole closed with the time and I was left with an earring that stuck in my ear. So the nurse sent me to a surgeon and after he laughed at me he pulled the earring out of my ear with one pull and no anesthesia. This is what it looks like:

because I was such a good and brave girl, I rewarded myself and purchased some “candies”. This is an Israeli cosmetics company that launched a tint that is very reminiscent of Benefit’s famous tint. I love the tint to create a natural tan look to the cheeks and it is really nice for the lips if I like to go for a childish and natural look.

And today, I decided to become the Iron Girl.

I’ll update later.

Homemade pickles, brunch and wall rugs

My posts, starting today, will look a little different from recent posts. I realized that there is no need for to plan the content in advance, everyday life brings with it enough moments of inspiration and ideas that anyone can be inepired by and embrace them for themselves. So from today I will post posts in them I will share with you my daily life and the things I experience, the things that makes me happy and in general I will try to bring you guys interesting content, unplanned content that comes in motion authentically and flowing. Welcome to join me.

Yesterday, which was Tuesday, I started making a pickle jar with the vegetables I love: cauliflower, carrots and Kohlrabi. The vegetables are not ready yet, I will give them another day, and of course I have no idea how they came out (this is my first time) but I do not believe that such a simple task can fail.

how to make? I separated the cauliflower into relatively small flowers, cut the carrots into thin slices as much as possible and the Kohlrabicut into sticks, the vegetables I poured into the jar (I put the vegetables in the order that i cut them but I would recommend you to mix the vegetables before adding them to the jar so you don’t have to dig to the depths of the jar to get some greenery) I poured three glasses of water, one glass of vinegar, two tablespoons of salt, a little drops of lemon juice and a quarter cup of oil. I flipped the bottle several times to mix the ingredients and that’s it, two or three days and it’s ready. I love to eat pickles next to the meals and also as a snack alongside the wine or vodka redball (yes I know) that I usually drink on Friday nights, promising to keep you updated on how they came out when they will be ready.

I spent the rest of the day with my two boys (4 and 5 years old) and the 2-year-old baby that I was home with because of the corona virus but in the first second when I had a little time to myself, which happens when the baby falls asleep around 12 o’clock, I decided to pamper myself with a small snack.

I made two Fried Eggs, which I placed on two slices of bread smeared with pesto, and of course, I made myself a hot cup of coffee. While eating I watched Lydia Elise Millen’s YouTube channel, I love watching her content recently. Her YouTube channel, at least recently, revolves around home designing and this is because she recently bought her dream home that she still designs, fashion and beauty. Some may say that she presents a picture that is too perfect and even artificial, but for me, watching her content fills me with positive energy, the content inspires me, motivates me, and most of all, I love watching people that are happy and feeling good about themselfs, we have the opposite infront of us all day long. I encourage you to watch her channel if this content interest you.

Today was a super exciting and joyous day for me, today finally, after two months when the kids were with me at home because of the corona virus, they all went to kindergartens! Yas! Freedom!!! Those two months that they were with me at home were challenging, exhausting, funny, upsetting, those days were a squeezing emotions machine. It was difficult for the children allso as well, because in the end the life they known was taken from them. In addition to the quarantine, a person very close to me who I love passed away and another family member was hospitalized (thank goodness he is now in a good shape and healthy) For moments it felt like a movie, everything ran too fast and the extraordinary and extreme plot added to the feeling that it was some fictional plot and that we would wake up any second from the dream . it was not a dream, but it seemed like the beginning of its end, the children retorned to kindergarten and I started to breath again. This morning, after putting the kids in kindergarten, I decided to visit my sister and my mom, who lives with her, and sit down for a cup of coffee and a morning chat. The three of us sat in the balcony facing the sea and introduced me to the new crafts they created. In a previous post I mentioned the fact that my mom knits everything, including covers for decorative pillows, so get this three new pillow covers she knitted:

amazing or not?! In addition to my mother, my sister also has creative hands and head, she has also started to create insanely cool wall rugs

She uses a special weaving facility and special tools to create this stunning rug. The fabric she made has all kinds of different elements, for example, at the top of the fabric there are pom-poms and down the fabric there are wires that come off it. After talking to my sister, I realized that this is a very easy job to sink into and lose a sense of time so if you decide to try it, take it into account.

my sister purchased the facility and accessorise from amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/WILLOWDALE-Multi-Craft-Extra-Large-Develops-Creativity/dp/B07ZH96DXS

My sister also didn’t send me home empty-handed, and gived me three t-shirts

two of them she bought from the online store ‘NEXT’, the shirts are white with with inflated sleeves, the other shirt she bought from ‘MANGO’ but was small on her. So thanks to my sister for the presents and for the kindness. In general, I have to replenish my wardrobe with summer clothes, if you have offers for online sites that offer beautiful, high-quality clothing and that ships around the world wrote to me in response here.
And this is it for this time. follow my site and posts if you like.
See you in the next post! Bye Bye ๐Ÿ™‚

Korean ‘So.ko’ Products – first impression

The products of the Korean so.ko company recently arrived at the drug store near me and started to catch my attention. The packaging of the products is amazing in my opinion, this gorgeous light pink combined with gold, omg I love it!

I purchased several products to get to know the brand and its qualities. I purchased hydrogel eye patches, daily masks and glow serum. Here is my opinion on the products after one use:

Eye patches:

it is silicone patches with tiny gold particles. The patches are enriched with 24 karat gold, caffeine, collagen and hyaluronic acid. it is written that the patches helps to give a fresh look and help to soothe the skin. After putting the patches under my eyes for 15 minutes, I did feel that the patches were refreshing and moisturizing the skin. After removing them, I felt that the skin was more elastic. In general, the experience was very pleasant and the skin feels more fresh and essential.

Morning glow – daily masks:

There is no way to look good in these fabric masks but the goal is worth it, I hope. The first sensation that comes after putting on the mask is an immediate chill and that is the feeling that accompanied me to every 15 minutes that the mask was on me. The mask has an amazing flower fragrance and it contains hyaluronic acid and blue floral extracts. The mask is designed to soothe the skin and provide moisture and shine. After removing the mask, I felt that the skin got the amount of moisture it needed and the skin felt more tense. I was very excited about this product. It is highly recommended.

Glow serum:

The serum is enriched with 24-carat gold particles and hyaluronic acid. After placing the serum, the little gold sparkels does appear on the facial skin, not everyone will like it, but the serum does revive the facial skin and makes it look glowing. The serum comes with a dropper, which I love very much and find it useful. In general, it’s a cute gimmick. I didn’t fall for it.

In conclusion, I was pleasantly impressed by the brand so.ko. Their prices are relatively low compared to the big brands and the products give results.

My morning routine – Facial Skin Care

A few years ago no product ever touched my facial skin except the water with which I washed my face in the mornings. but what to do, with the age comes the wrinkles and with them the awareness of the importance of skin care.

I experimented with lots of products from different cosmetics companies until I found my winning combination.

So, first thing I do in the morning is to wash my face with the pixi cleanser from the rose cream series.
I feel that this cleanser cleanses my skin well.

After the cleanser i use pixi toner from the same series. I feel it balances the moisture in my skin. I actually drip a few drops onto a piece of cotton wool and apply it all over the skin area.

Next, I apply the hydrating serum from Bio Active Care. It is a moisture-rich serum designed to restore facial skin.

For moisturizing, I use day and night face cream from the hydrolique series of Bio Active Care. This is a super moisturizing face cream that leaves the skin glowing, a result I have not achieved with any other face cream.

And for the eyes I use eye cream from the hydrolique series of Bio Active Care as well.

Combining these products works perfectly for me. I have normal to dry skin and for me the result after using these products is amazing. My facial skin looks healthier, younger and tighter.
