WATER

Water is an extremely important part of our daily lives. We fill up a glass of water without even thinking about it, we are extremely blessed to be able to do that. It is ridiculous and unacceptable that people die everyday because they do not have water. From The Thirst Project:

Almost 1 Billion on our planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water and proper sanitization. That’s one in every eight of us. 4,400 children die every day from diseases caused by contaminated water. That’s huge. That’s approximately one child every 15 seconds. 80% of all global diseases are water-borne and result from drinking contaminated water. These diseases kill more than 2.2 million people every year.

You can do a lot more then not have the sink running while you brush your teeth and shortening your showers, you know it and I know it. The Thirst Project is a organization that I first came across when I attended VidCon and they also presented at my school. I only want to put organization that I fully trust and support, and I love The Thirst Project because you literally see where your money is going.

Finding Calm In The Chaos

We all have crazy lives, and we rarely find time to breathe. Our lives get ahead of us, and our thoughts race. I don’t think our lives will ever really not be busy, but we can find calm in the chaos. tumblr_lrdq6dwwvi1qz4d4bo1_400

1. Breathe

Breathing is what keeps us alive, yet it is what we least think about. Proper breathing can slow down your mind and help you to not get overwhelmed. I do this in any stressful situation I am in. Breathe in from your nose for four seconds, hold for seven seconds, and release. Feel the weight lift off your shoulders. Repeat this as many times as you deem necessary.

2. Music

Music is one of those things that can help you in whatever mood you’re in. No matter where you are; a busy train station, work, at home…music is there. The bands ‘The Head and The Heart’ and ‘The XX’ are my favorite calming artists. Breathe slowly and let the music take your worries and thoughts away.

3. Move your body in nature

Run. Walk. Stretch. Dance. Bike. Moving your body clears your head, and in a stuffy gym, it’s not as effective. So go out in the sexy Earth and move your body, you will be glad you did.

4. Meditate

Even if it’s just for five minutes, sitting down, breathing, and letting your mind wander in whatever way it pleases is an instant way to silence yourself. Think about your intensions moving forward so that you can continue your day stronger and happier.

Until next time,

Claire

 

Eleanor Calder

I love Eleanor Calder, her whole look is very simple and natural, not to mention Eleanor is drop dead gorgeous. I have done my fair share of stalking to put together a little trio on how to get her style, makeup, and hair so you don’t have to, thank me later.

PS: It’s later.

Who is Eleanor Calder? eleanor-calder1

A lot of you are probably wondering this right now. Drop your Google search page and I’ll relieve you; Eleanor is well-known for being One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson’s girlfriend, but Calder has became a style icon for her simplicity. I mean, let’s be real, if someone gets a famous boy-bander, don’t you want to look a bit like them?

Style

Eleanor’s simple and young everyday style is filled with jeans, sneakers, leather jackets, and overalls. TopShop seems to be a store she shops at quite a bit.

Jacket: Burberry // Sneakers: Converse // Jeans: TopShop // Tee: TopShop

Makeup

Like Eleanor’s style, her makeup is very simple and natural. She just puts on just a bit to emphasize her features.

She said that sometimes she won’t even bother with foundation and just use her YSL touché éclat concealer, but when she does foundation, Eleanor uses the YSL touché éclat foundation. Next Eleanor sets her foundation with Rimmel Stay Matte powder and bronzes up with NARS Laguna. For cheeks, Eleanor adds color with TopShop’s cream blushers. The only thing Calder does with her eyes is mascara, and then she’s on to lips! For lips, Eleanor has said to use Vaseline with a dab of YSL concealer.

Hair

Eleanor is mostly always wearing her hair curled in a middle part. Just get about a 1” curling wand and curl away from your face in sections about the size of your ear.
