How to cure homesick


I know what it does mean and some how I have overcome! My first month after marriage started by saying good bye to my country, family and friends. Although I am so happy to experience the world, languages and cultures, I feel something which is hard to define.I just know how to cure them. The first step is not to suppress that.

Embrace that:
Now you are in the stage to be a doctor for your memories and emotions. It doesn't matter how much you hate the home or even how much you are enthusiastic to adventure; The matter is that the inside pieces strengthen as you get further.

Secondly, take something with you:
 What is more fun; the part reminds you the best days. I always have mine. It is a moon as you see. My mom bought me a Barbie who was laid on that when I was nine; we lived in the south in Iran, in Abadan. After eight years of military conflict between Iran and Iraq, the city was a whole mess. Infection, illness, lacking of essential products and so many more... Having a Barbie was a paradise in the hell. I remember it was really expensive... Any way, it reminds me, family, childhood dreams and love.

These easy simple steps are on top of what I do based on my experience to be happy and overcome all horrible emotions caused by distance.

Get The Black Stones

My Shopping Jewelry is a long old story. I buy the pieces and after years they go to match. The silver ring with black stone is from when I was 21 and the earrings were purchased when I was 25. And the final result is incredibly beautiful. I mostly war them for night to boost the whole look.

  The tiny shiny stones show off the ring's beauty more. See how stunning they are. The fair                to medium skins are a proper background for these intense color; no more watch or other stuff you need in  case you wear such this kind of set.

Vintage Dior Mirror

Vintage is vintage, but what if a brand shines on the vintage object? What would you do? (the vintage lovers). I am mad about the vintage things. Clothes, cups, plates, chandeliers, carpets, cameras, radios, TV and some more. Apart from my eager, I don't know enough to realize the antique things. I have mentioned once before about the vintage market in Caracas here. Recently, I purchased a mirror. Honestly, I have no idea if it is an original or fake. However, the reason made me to buy that is the Dior name on it.

Furthermore,The surface of the mirror is smooth and no stain on it, the back cover has some stains as you see them. The Dior logo is sitting there in a gorgeous way. The bag is a thin layer of velour. I am not sure what is exactly called. Based on my research this fabric is named Doux cotton Velveteen.

Revlon Nail Art, 3D Jewel Stickers and brain skills

Revlon Nail Art, 3D Jewel Stickers and brain skills

I am pleased by two things; One, my shopping sense and the other one is my nails. Although, I wish I had  the longer nail to show off, I am so happy with what I would like to share with you. Last year, I bought myself a fancy attractive package which was calling me the whole hour I was in the drugstore. It was Revlon nail art, 3D jewel stickers!


This step is a real comic one: few days after my purchase I decided to try them, But I JUST COULD NOT. It was so hard to remember why I couldn't apply these beauties on my nail, I just know that I had so many issues with using a scissor plus they didn't stick on my nail bed properly.
Furthermore, one of my tasks on my "To do list for weekend" was written as: "manicure" . After buffing my nails I saw this little package under the nail files, nail clippers... surprisingly, I was successful at applying them even on my right hand nails! 
 Awesome achievement! I assumed that I am more concentrated and my left hand skills has been developed since last year! That is the secret! Brain development.


Let's jump into the details: As the packaging says: UV curved technology made to last. No Dry Time. Won't dry out. 18 Stickers. Right now the biggest positive mark goes to "no dry time"! 
It is the most amazing thing in the manicure world which is ever created! A method of manicure, with no time to dry. Can you believe that? I am a big fan of these nice stickers because from the Saturday night up to now (Monday), they are fine.

The stickers came with a nail file to condition the extra amount. If you are curious to know what I think about the design, I have to say that they are super cute; floral print with a few glitter leaves. But the name is against the product. It is named wild flowers. I have no feeling about the wild flower....
If you are looking for a classy manicure for an especial occasion the stickers are such a life savior.

Fab Ring
Middle ring is what I never was in to, but about a year and half ago I magically have been attracted by these sophisticated accessories.I call it middle ring because mostly my middle finger shines by them also call them individually, as Accessories, because they really act so. The lazy days there is no nail polish, and no mood to do a perfect manicure. These lovely rings survives me. The glamorous they give to the fingers, will covers any imperfection.
 I bought the above ring almost three year ago, it came with a similar pair of beautiful earrings. I didn't use to wear the ring, because... I have no idea why? whereas the earrings were my permanent company. As I get older I do love my older pieces of my closet more beside when I live with them for a longer time, they change into new tools for new occasions.

My new discoveries which are dancing in my bathroom while I enjoy applying them on head to toe! First one is a again a Venezuelan brand which I love that. A Physical body exfoliate is the product I am going to talk about. But let me tell your firstly about the brand. A drugstore brand called SPA LINE, low price good quality, smells divine and lastly, my husband and I love that so much.

Unfortunately as same as other Venezuelan product that I had introduced here before I could not find any official website related to SPA LINE.

Love number two is by Garnier , Fructis with oil ingredients as a conditioner. About this one I have to say that it is a real nourishing for my dry hair especially after highlighting my poor hair. It's not thick while it covers the structure of the lengths and the ends like a protecting layer.

Sulfate free Plus micro aqua serum Shampoo by Dove

Vogue Latino America Cover Review, June 2014

Tens of faces are standing and sitting in the sun, I am staring at them and suddenly without any decision from before pick up one of them.
That is my story about magazines! The ladys and gentlemen on the covers are the most important part of selling the magazines in the meanwhile  magazine logo and other details of cover designing are effective as much as skinny models and a celebrities' gesture.

Vogue Latinoamerica, June 2014

Apart from, all mentioned angles, what mostly attracts me is the color of logo and the background. I have an especial affair with details. My life is formed out of these tiny colors, shapes and fonts.
 This month I was not impressed by the June cover of Vogue Latino America . Because with Five month of distance they repeated the sky baby blue shade on background and the March font color for logo. I have to confess that I was freaking shocked by the January cover combination! A bronzed model in white on a sheer baby blue surface. For me, it was a strong tune of spring which was calling me after cold wintry days. I was like, Oh I have to get it right now, I said in front of news stand.

Vogue Latinoamerica, March 2014

But June, summer birthday started by a purple pink VOGUE at the the same blue. Oh God, it was one the most disappointing moments in my day. I was so angry; Any way I couldn't wait more to get home, sit and jump into the pages. But what can please me when "the cover, the moment icon of a magazine couldn't has made me excited" ! In other hand, I go thorugh all content because I love fashion and I am a huge fan of Vogue, but what if a person without any interest in vogue would lilke to buy a fashion magazine!  It is the time
Please, when you are designing, when you are in front of thousands of color to choose from your illustrating software, attention to passion and burning desires of your readers which may be suppressed by a wrong selection. There are definitely more choices to have for the most crucial ambassador of fashion around the world (vogue). What is necessary to remember every single minutes of cover designing is that, The cover speaks about the whole magazine team before a reader opens and follows the package of a hard working month. The covers sing before the reader even decide to look at them.
 It may be believed that, The same topics and a general methods lead a Fashion & Beauty Magazine! So, It doesn't matter how hard you work. At the end, everything going to be boring and repeated! No surprise to have failed repetition on covers and illustration. Against this belief I have to add a point that the fashion is what use to reduce the boring moments in our lives, beauty is an attempt for being able to see wonderful sides of our daily aspects; The creative spirit of fashion doesn't allow that to happen. Accordingly, if this point of view is tried to be kept and developed, you won't experience those tedious moments in Vogue any more.

Actually, it is hydrating mask. the consistency is like a thick cream, beside the divine smell; it works incredibly amazing. The real motto which comes true by applying for the first time.

Body Scrub and Hair Hydraring

 Hydration in hair circumstance is crucial to any lady, and why not do your best. This hydration (I must call it " mask"); after rinsing the conditioner one more step change the texture of my hair. be careful to apply a little bit of that not a bunch, because even after washing your hair, it may be felt heavy and after a day and half you want to jump into the shower and rinse everything from your scalp. apply it just on ends and length.
 Herbal Essence never has pleased me by the shampoos. But this product helped me with dryness. The link you can check is the same one in a different packaging.

The book:
I am obsessed with is a long novel in ten Volume, and 2,836  pages. This month I read the third and fourth volumes. It is one the world longest novel. It is named " Kelidar" and of course in Persian.
