13 Life Lessons from 13 Reasons Why

Thursday, April 20, 2017

Netflix has done it again with another original hit series. When asked what is a great show to watch on Netflix right now, 13 Reasons Why always come highly recommended both verbally and online. This is a coming of age series that tells the tale of a high-school teen who committed suicide and gave 13 reasons why through cassette tapes. Keep reading as we share 13 Life Lessons from 13 Reasons Why.

The Premise

Based on the 2007 novel by Jay Asher; After a teenage girl's perplexing suicide , a classmate (Clay Jensen) receives a series of tapes that unravel the mystery of her tragic choice.

---You can’t stop the future. You can’t rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret… is to press play.” — “Thirteen Reasons Why”

1. Suicide is not the answer: If there is one person in this world who says they have never experienced a challenge in their life, that person is a liar. No matter what the situation is, there are so many resources available to get help. Never , ever let it lead to suicide.

2.  People will talk: We cannot control what people say about us but we can control how it makes us feel. In Hannah's case, there are some things that were her fault while there were other things that were her classmates.

3. Fitting in is Hard: Whether you are an adult or teenager, trying to fit into a new environment can be really hard.

4. Someone always Cares: There are people who come into our lives for a reason and a season. There is always at least one person who truly cares and can make life less ... difficult.

5. Be true to yourself: In the series, we watch each character's true self unravel on each tape and they are pretty messed up because of their own issues. Instead of trying to cover your mess and be the victim, be true to yourself.

6.It's ok to ask for help: You can be the most self sufficient person in this world and think you can take care of everything. Relax superman! It's ok to ask for help every now and again.

7. Watch your words: Be careful what you say! Stop trolling on Social Media and stop being mean!!! You never, ever know what a person is going through and what you say might push them over the edge.

8. Sexual Assault is more popular than you think: The series touched on rape and various forms of abuse. It happens at school, work and in the world in general. If you have been assaulted in any way , seek help.

9. Be Kind: Simple right? This is one of the main things that sent Hannah over the edge. Everyone was un-kind to her and kept piling on rumors and bad things on her just because.

10. Don't move on: This is a bit unconventional ... whenever we as humans go through something challenging in life, onlookers always tell us to "move-on". In most cases , it's ok to just pause and really process what has happened and allow our selves to go through the motions.

11. Bullying is Real: Bullying has been taken to a whole new level because of Technology. Children in grades four to 12, college students and even adults are bullied at least once per month. Imagine being constantly teased on picked on because you do not meet the standards of others. Bullying in all cases should be reported.

12. Depression Hurts: It causes people to withdraw from daily activities and even loved ones. If you notice changes in an individual, talk to them and show them love and support. If it is at a point where you can't help , seek help on their behalf.

13. Don't believe everything you hear: This is one of our biggest down falls in this century! We believe everything we see and hear on social media and is always quick to jump on people! Don't be a sheep and follow everything, in most cases it's untrue.

This new beauty trend was started a few days ago by Finnish Make up Artiste Stella Sirenon who debuted the brows on her Instagram page. Here we saw the brows being split down the middle using a glue stick ! Yes you read that right, glue stick! For this look, there is no need for fancy brow tools or gel since all you need is a glue stick and something small enough to arch the brow hairs in an upwards motion that resembles a feather. Sirenon credits her friend Leevi for dreaming up the look while brushing her brows. 

Get the Look!

You will Need
  • Glue Stick ( non toxic preferred)
  • Cotton Swab (qutip) 
  • Spoolie or small brow brush
Step 1

Take a small amount of glue and apply to the cotton swab.

Step 2

Using the same cotton swab, gently separate the brow hairs until you have a clean thin line on both ends.

Step 3

Use your spoolie brush or brow brush to brush the hairs in place.

For a cool editorial look, finish with glitter.

Ladies, I leave this one to you, now that you've seen and heard about this new trend, will you be trying it? Comment below to let us know why or why not.

Dramatic Make-over ft Maybelline 24k Nudes Palette

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Hi Guys! It's been a while since we last spoke and there has been a lot of changes. Flashback to last Saturday when I thought it would be cool to cut my hair "pixie" short. With this new look I wanted to try something different with my make-up as well and thanks to the kind folks at Influenster and Maybelline for sending me the 24k Nudes. Keep reading to see my dramatic look and my 1st impression/review of the product.

I love a simple no fuss look and that is exactly what I went for! I used the dark brown from the 24k Nudes palette on my lids to add a daytime smoky effect that is still very subtle. Next, I lined my eyes with the Maybelline New York lasting drama waterproof gel pencil in polished amethyst which is a beautiful purple that brings out the brown flecks in my eyes, then to have a more glowy "awake look" I added the beautiful gold colour on the inner corners of my eyes. Side bar: this gold is the one that "sells" the palette and was the one used in many of the adverts and commercials. My lashes were complemented by the Maybelline Falsies push up angel mascara. The shape of the wand is a bit different from what I’m used to and while it did not work well on its own, it’s great if you already have mascara on and want to add that ‘falsie” look.

To finish off the look I added a lip-gloss as I had a long day and had no time for lipstick.

I have all the Maybelline Nude Palettes and they are pretty much similar in that the colours are either darkened or lightened. I was hoping for higher pigmentation and more gilttery gold hues. There was only 1 Gold colour and it was beautiful. The other colours are a bit chalky in texture, however, the colours pay-off is pretty decent as is the longevity in wear. I notice the applicator  was smaller than in other palettes and they were not named on the palette. I really hope they would name the shades this time around so we can refer to them by name.

I received this product complimentary for the purpose of review from influenster.
