I dont want an Ending Anymore

one true girl

I’m one of those people who believe in Love; Fate, and even destiny. How else am I suppose to connect life’s twisted unfortunate events. It is a coping mechanism I guess you can say but it’s way beyond that to me. It’s a way of life, it’s a way to inspire yourself and others to move past tragedy. I have been through loss, death, abandonment, bad luck, struggle, and self sorrow. But ALL of those things we all go through makes us to become the people we are today. Now being in my twenties and looking back at all my obstacles, it created me and it created my dreams. It also formed my confidence because no matter what I’ve been through, I came out even stronger. As cliche as it sounds. Until We get to this point there is no looking forward. The door to change is closed until we understand…

Do Detox Teas and Waters Really Work?

Looking Joli Good

Detox |lookingjoligood.wordpress.comBesides a being lover of makeup and trying to look beautiful, I am also a Registered Nurse.  I love all the science behind health and wellness and how the body works.

Unless you have been living under a rock, or don’t ever go on social media, I am sure that you have heard about Detox Teas and Detox Waters.  Many of these products claim to flush fat and toxins from your body.

While this sounds like a great way to lose some extra weight, generally if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.  And… in this case, it is too good to be true.  These drinks do not melt away the extra pounds.

While many of these detox waters include cucumbers, lemon and tea, which have a natural diuretic effect (A substance or drug that tends to increase the discharge of urine.) you…

DoubleU = W


I am but a vessel of truth.

It is all that I am and all that I know.

My truth may diverge from others,

Yet it is mine and lives within me.


I am but a vessel of hatred.

Dwelling within that basest part of me.

Surreptitiously it hides beneath the surface,

It is denied the right to control me.


I am but a vessel of love.

That better part of who I am.

Shared with those held dear,

But too often displayed sparingly.


I am but a vessel of hope.

Those better things and better days.

These are dreams unfulfilled,

Though desired in the promise of tomorrow.


I am but a vessel of memories.

Cherished days and episodes.

Stored away within my heart,

Recalled with longing and fondness.


A day is destined to arrive,

And it may not be that far away,

Nivea Men Post Shave Balm as a PRIMER? Mac vs Nivea Test!



Hey everyone,

Apparently the ReplenishingPost Shave Balm from Nivea Men can work as a makeup primer, so I want to see if it actually works. I first heard this crazy idea from Nikki Tutorials on YouTube and ever since I have been desperate to try it. I usually splash out on the Mac Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage because I love the way it holds my makeup all day long. However, if I can spend £5.25 on a bottle of the Nivea for men Replenishing Post Shave Balm and it does the same job, I know i’d rather repurchase that.

Most primers contain the ingredient Glycerin which creates a layer between the skin and the makeup, making it last longer. The Nivea for men Replenishing Post Shave Balm contains this ingredient and it’s in fact one of highest listed ones on the bottle which means it contains a…

Why Travel?

The Petite Voyageur


I travel because I have the urge to explore, to discover the unknown, to learn. I travel because embarking on a journey is the best way to find mankind’s greatest achievements and the best way to find myself. I travel because I have a thirst for knowledge, a thirst for understanding where we came from and where we’re headed. I travel to learn: about ancient civilizations, modern marvels, and natural wonders. I travel to avoid repeating mankind’s past mistakes.

I travel because I’m lucky enough to call planet Earth my home; because I’m insignificant compared to the wonders this world has to offer. I travel to discover the unknown, to find the beaten path off the road, to immerse myself in a different culture, and to surround myself with magical sights and sounds. I travel to experience far off lands that seem worlds away from my hometown and to experience them with all 5…
