CALMING FORMULA
Calming Formula combines L-Theanine, 5-HTP, and Melatonin is an all-natural formula designed to support calmness and healthy sleep. L-Theanine is an amino acid that is found in tea leaves; it promotes relaxation and facilitates sleep by contributing to several changes in the brain. L-Theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. 5-HTP supports the production of serotonin, an important substance for healthy nerve and brain function, and the normal regulation of mood and normal sleep patterns. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood and sleep; increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promotes relaxation and can help with sleep. Melatonin acts as a natural aid for healthy sleep regulation and the promotion of normal sleep cycles.*

L-THEANINE
L-Theanine is an amino acid that is found in tea leaves. It was identified in tea by Japanese scientists in 1949. While tea is the most common dietary source for L-Theanine, this compound is also found in some types of mushrooms. L-Theanine promotes relaxation and facilitates sleep by contributing to a number of changes in the brain. L-Theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness, and sleep, as well as appetite, energy, and other cognitive skills. Increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promote relaxation and can help with sleep.*

COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
Collagen is the most abundant substance in the body and helps give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments, and tendons. When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down. Supplementing with collagen peptides (or hydrolyzed collagen) may help with the body’s need for these building blocks. So why not jumpstart your day with a delicious Collagen shake for that nutritional and beautifying boost!*

The Perfect Winter Diet For Better Health

January 28, 2021

It’s always important to make sure you are taking care of your health, and that will always include eating a healthy and balanced diet. But in winter time, there are some particular things that you do need to focus on if you are going to try and have the best possible diet for that time of year, and this is something that you are going to want to think about in detail. In this post, we are going to take a look at what the perfect winter diet tends to look like if you want to be as healthy as possible.

Eat Plenty Of Fruit And Veg


Although it might sound simple and straightforward, many of us still do not get the amount of fruit and vegetables we ideally need each day. The old five a day rule is a good place to start if you are not currently eating that much fruit and veg, but really even that should be seen as a bare minimum compared to what you should ideally be getting each day. Really, it’s best to try and eat as much fruit and veg as you can, and in particular as much of a variety of it as you can too.

If you are finding it challenging to do that, bear in mind that there are many different ways you can hope to get fruit and veg into your daily diet. For instance, you might want to go to goodnature.com and get some juicing equipment, and then make a daily juice made of various fruits. Or you could even make a green smoothie once a day with kale and spinach and banana. However you do it, this is one of the most important things to do if you want to ensure you have the perfect winter diet.

Try Frozen Veg


If you are trying to get more veg into your diet for winter, but you are finding the cost of fresh vegetables prohibitive, bear in mind that you can always use frozen. This is invariably more affordable than fresh, and yet it is just as acceptable for when you are simply trying to eat more vegetables. Really, using frozen carrots, broccoli, peas and the like are perfectly fine ways to do this, and there is even evidence that suggests that freezing helps to lock in the antioxidants, which is especially the case for frozen peas. So don’t be afraid of using frozen veg, and make sure you stock up on plenty of it next time you go shopping at the supermarket.

Avoid Overeating


Most of us tend to start eating more during winter compared to summer. This is not without precedent, and there is a very good natural reason we tend to do it, which is that we quite simply need more calories in the winter than the summer, at least when it comes down to the evolutionary side of things. However, with our modern lives, where we have heated homes and so on, we don’t need to eat as much as our bodies might tell us we do.
This goes some way to explaining why some people find it easy to overeat in winter. If you think this is something that you are prone to, then you should aim to try and cut it down as best as you can. Ultimately, overeating is not going to be any good for you, and you are more likely to pile on those winter pounds that we are all trying to avoid. It’s a good idea to keep a range of healthy snacks in the home too, so that if you do feel tempted to eat a lot, you can at least snack on healthy things like fruit and nuts and grains. Even then, take care not to eat too much.

Take A Little Ginger


One final word for our old friend, ginger. There is a lot that ginger does for you, and it can often prove to be an incredibly useful thing to eat plenty of in winter in particular. That’s because it had the dual effect of both heating you up from the inside, while also providing your body with fantastic immunity. If you have any dental problems, it can help you with that as well. Eat a little ginger each day, and you are going to find yourself being so much healthier throughout the winter period and beyond, and less likely to catch a range of viruses and diseases as well. That’s particularly important this winter.

5 Ways To Soothe Your Sore Winter Skin

January 26, 2021

During the winter it’s not uncommon for your skin to feel rough and drier than normal. This is usually down to the colder weather drying out your skin faster than the warmer months. It’s extremely uncomfortable when your skin is dry, sore and itchy and it may feel like no matter what creams you’re using, nothing is helping. Luckily, you don’t have to suffer through it anymore, as we’ve got a bunch of tips on how to soothe your sore winter skin.

For those that suffer with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, these tips will work too! However, if you’re using prescribed cream or other topical treatments, it’s always a good idea to speak with your GP before straying away from your treatment.

Drink more water

We all know how important it is to drink water, as it helps flush toxins from the body and leaves your skin looking flawless. However, the body needs more water in the winter because sweat evaporates faster from the body in the cold winter air, not only leaving your skin feeling sore, but also very dehydrated.

Try upping your water intake to give your skin the chance to take on as much moisture as possible. If you struggle drinking enough water each day, you can buy water bottles with indicators letting you know how much water you’ve had. They’re printed with time slot goals that will help you achieve your water intake little by little throughout the day.

Take immune boosting supplements

If you suffer with a skin condition like those mentioned above, you’ll know better than anyone how much the winter can affect your skin. The patches that are already existing become itchier and drier than ever, causing your skin to crack and bleed. This is an extremely unwelcome side effect to something you have to deal with everyday anyway.

Skin conditions like psoriasis stem from an auto-immune disorder, and your body is working hard to try and fight infections - even when there’s nothing to fight. That’s why scales and plaques appear on your body. Using black elderberry daily alongside other immune boosting supplements will help soothe your skin. Black elderberry is packed full of antioxidants which assist with the body's natural defenses and cell communication, therefore improving your psoriasis.

Immune boosting supplements will also benefit anyone looking to improve their body’s natural defences, including the way your skin looks and feels during the winter.

Use unscented and gentle skin creams

While scented creams are wonderful to rub all over your body, the perfume in them can actually irritate the skin. Even if you don’t generally suffer with sensitive skin, your skin is much more susceptible in the winter and may even become cracked due to the cold weather and dehydration, and a perfumed cream won’t do you any favours.

Using gentle skin creams like Aveeno will help create a barrier on your skin whilst leaving it feeling soft and hydrated. You can also use unscented creams that are designed for babies as they provide extra protection for the skin.

Monitor what you’re putting into your body

What you’re eating and drinking on a regular basis massively impacts your body, and if you’re suffering with dry and cracked skin it might be time to reevaluate your diet. Try and pack your meals full of nutrients through fruit and vegetables to help give your body the nutrients it needs to keep your skin as healthy as possible.

You should also look at how much alcohol you’re consuming, as this could play a major role in your skin problems. Alcohol is extremely dehydrating, and even if you’re drinking plenty of water, it will have an extremely adverse effect on your skin. While enjoying a glass or two every now and then is perfectly fine, make sure you’re topping up your water levels either in between glasses or after you’ve finished drinking. This will help maintain your body’s hydration and in turn, help your skin during the winter.

Wash with dermatologically approved soaps

There’s a vast array of soaps, shower gels and body scrubs on the market in this day and age, and thanks to the plethora of smells and colours you can now buy, it’s understandable that you may not think about the effect your soap could be having on your skin. That’s not to say you can’t have a shower gel or soap that doesn’t smell nice, as many brands such as Dove come dermatologically approved, and will be much better for your skin overall.

HOW DIAMONDS ARE HELPING DURING THE PANDEMIC

January 14, 2021

This article was originally posted on www.influencive.com by Suzie Ocie


COVID-19 has caused a major impact on our daily lives. While the world at large may have shut down due to this destructive virus, many of us have been left behind in the chaos, just trying to grab a piece of our old life back.

Many companies stepped in to help, spending millions of dollars to support those in need. Can you believe that some people are still holding on to hope thanks to help that came from… diamonds?

Diamonds That Care, a socially responsible jewelry brand, has been pioneering ways to give back to the communities and families drastically affected by the coronavirus. This jewelry company alone has created multiple strategies in order to donate to charities for COVID-19 and provide financial and emotional support to families of frontline healthcare workers and volunteers who lost their lives.


One way Diamonds That Care have shown their support during this difficult time is by partnering with Feeding America, a charity that provides food for families in need of financial and emotional aid.

According to Feeding America, during COVID-19 over 35 million people, including 11 million children, experienced food insecurity. As the virus has spread, the number of families and children living in food-insecure households has increased to over 54 million, which includes nearly 18 million children – and counting. The coronavirus has caused hardship for on millions of families across the country and around the world, leading to a lack of fundamental resources in their homes.

Diamonds That Care is donating 10% of all sales from the I Care collection, featured exclusively at Brilliant Earth, to Feeding America’s Covid Response Fund. This means that you, too, can join in the fight to support those who need it most during these challenging times: by purchasing a diamond from the I Care collection created by Diamonds That Care.

But Feeding America’s hungry is not the only way Diamonds That Care is making an impact. In collaboration with a world renowned jewelry designer, Anna Hu, and Christie’s auction house, Diamonds That Care raised funds to provide financial and emotional support to the families of frontline healthcare workers who lost their lives in the fight to save ours. This collaboration raised $338,781 from the sale of three rare diamond jewelry pieces designed by Anna Hu. Proceeds from the auction were donated to The Brave Heart fund, a foundation that provides financial care and comfort to families of frontline workers and volunteers.

In hopes to make the world a little bit brighter during this time of need, Diamonds That Care continues to show their compassion by providing essential services and supplies to people who need it the most. Covid-19 may have brought dark times with it, but Diamonds That Care is doing its best to bring back some light.

Who would have thought diamonds could have such a powerful impact on the everyday lives of people affected by the pandemic?

Five Tips For Getting Your Hearing Tested

January 13, 2021

Hearing tests are something you should be active about getting done because looking after your ear health is important. We tend to undervalue our hearing, not appreciating just how valuable it can be in certain scenarios but also in everyday life. And the more you do to protect it the better. If you’re thinking about your ear health more, then here are five tips for getting your hearing tested and to make sure your hearing stays crystal clear for as long as possible.

Do It Annually

Getting your test done annually is a must, and it’s always good to try and book yourself in for your next hearing test once your first one is done. That way, you get into a rhythm of simply booking ahead and that way, you’re never going to forget to book it. This is going to be helpful in times where life gets busier, and we can tend to push some of these medical appointments further down our list of to-dos. It’s, in fact, something you want to be more active on where possible and your health is very important to look after.


An annual visit is going to make sure that you’re getting anything potentially problematic, spotted earlier instead of later. It’s going to give you great peace of mind knowing that everything is fine and there’s nothing really to be worried about. The more consistent you are with your trips to the hearing center, the better.


Make It A Family Trip If Necessary

Doing medical trips to a doctor, dentist, or hearing specialist can get more difficult and hard to organize when you have a family. The challenge is making the appointment and not so much booking it. With that being said, it’s worth thinking about making a family trip if necessary to the audiologist.

Even though t’s not quite the family day out any of you would expect, it can still be handy to get everyone ticked off in one go. That way, you don’t have to spend more time having to go back and forth. Everyone can benefit from a hearing test, regardless of their age. It’s just like any other medical check-up when it comes to the body.
 

Be Honest With The Audiologist

Be honest with your audiologist because they’re likely going to notice when something doesn’t sound right to them. After all, they are specialists when it comes to the human ear. When treated by an audiologist, make sure you’re honest and open with everything. From what you hear during the test to any niggling concerns you may have and that they can’t particularly find when doing a hearing test. It might be that you’ve experienced certain pains or perhaps you’re getting tinnitus and would like to discuss it further. Whatever it is, be honest and open in all your appointments.

Consider Your Options

After your hearing test, you might not get the ‘all is ok’ response, and perhaps you may have some form of hearing loss or problem with your ears in general. If that’s the case, then the audiologist is going to discuss all your options in full. There’s no need to panic, and with the advancements that have been made with hearing aids and technology for hearing, you have a lot more options to choose from.

If you need a hearing aid, it’s not worth dismissing getting one because it’s going to help you hear better. It’s also going to help prevent your hearing from getting any worse as you tend to compensate for the lack of noise you can hear.

Look After Your Hearing

Talking of compensating for your lack of hearing, it’s important to get hearing aids so that you can stop yourself from doing more damage. Looking after your hearing, in general, is good to do and there’s plenty you can do to help avoid that damage. Be wary of how loud you turn up the television or when you’re listening to music on your music device. Be careful of working in environments with loud noises and sounds by wearing ear protective gear. The more you do this, the less damage you’re likely to cause to the quality of your hearing in the future.

Getting your hearing tested is essential, and it’s important not to avoid it under any circumstances. The more you keep an eye on it, the longer it’s going to last you throughout your life, and don’t forget, age can deteriorate the hearing naturally, so you want to do everything you can to prevent it.

How to choose the right clip-in hair extensions

January 7, 2021


Clip-in hair extensions are a great choice for adding color, length, and volume to your own hair! They can easily transform your look by making your hair look longer and thicker in minutes. Hair extension with a clip is very easy to use and temporary. Application takes only a few minutes and you are ready with your new look. They are attached with pressure-sensitive clips to avoid damaging the hair. Each clip in hair extension has its own number of sets, different colors, lengths, and volumes, so you always have the opportunity to choose the right set for yourself. Below are the factors that you should consider when choosing the right clip-in hair extension that matches perfectly with your own hair.

Choose the right color 

When you go shopping for real hair clip extensions, another significant factor you should consider is the right color of your extension. Do not add light curls to your brown hair. Always compare the color of the extensions to your natural color until you find the best match for natural hair clip-ins. But it's better to do it during the daytime. Because daylight can reveal all the shades, allowing you to make a perfect choice. If for some reason your hair is not one-dimensional, look for double or triple color clip-in hair extensions.
 
Your desire look and style

How you plan to style your hair after wearing clip-in extensions can also play a very important role in selecting the length for your extension. If your chosen style requires you to trim a portion of your hair, or if you want it to look pointed, it is best to make your hair longer.

The length of the natural hair clip-ins extension you want should highlight the unique features of your face. If you have a heart-shaped face, you should choose 12-16" extenders with soft layers in the front. Another tip to consider when extending your hair to the correct length is your height. Your height will play an essential role in your overall appearance after wearing extensions.

Length of your hair

Choosing the right length for clip-in hair extensions is significant for a natural look. Most people choose extensions that are too long or too short for them. Not every length fits every person. So, when choosing the best clip-in hair extensions, first sort out your priorities. Your comfort plays a major role here. If you are buying hair extensions for cutting and styling, be sure to choose a longer length that can be trimmed. If you are unsure, check with your stylist - sometimes it can be confusing to determine the length of your hair if you have curly or layered hair.
Cost-Effective

The extension length automatically affects its cost. Hair extensions come in different lengths and at different prices. Your budget determines how much length you get. If you don't have a lot of cash to splatter but still want luxurious, voluminous hair, synthetic hair extensions are for you. Made from artificial fibers, this hair is significantly less expensive than clip in human hair extensions.

In a nutshell, clip-in hair extensions are a precious addition to your hair. It can improve your appearance and volume of your hair, giving you the look of your dreams. However, before applying them, make sure you select the correct ones. Mhot offers a wide range of hair extensions in different colors, lengths, and volumes, so you always have the opportunity to choose the set you want.

A classic pair of chandelier earrings never fails


Chandelier earrings have long been a favourite in the world of jewellery. They have the ability to completely transform any outfit and can add a show-stopping effect to the plainest of looks.

No matter what trends come in and out of fashion, there seems to always be a place for chandelier earrings. Their timeless quality is something which displays not only how popular they are but how versatile they can be. Thus, as women prepare their wardrobes for the coming 2021 season it is no surprise that chandelier earrings are back at the top of everyone’s wish list.

The great thing about chandelier earrings is that there are some many different types available; the diversification with regards to size, shape, colour, texture, design, and the overall vibe is simply endless. You would be hard stretched to find this originality and uniqueness in any other type of jewellery, especially earrings. Imagine trying to find a one of a kind quirky pair of studs – difficult right?

Another aspect which many people adore with regards to this type of earring is their ability to transform any look. As mentioned earlier, they can make a plain outfit red carpet-worthy. This is great for obvious reasons, it means that if your partner is struggling to decide what to wear they can go for their trusty black dress and simply add a pair of chandelier earrings to ensure that they are the bell of the ball. This means no more arguments before getting ready to go out. Great, right?

Nothing says individuality and love like a vintage locket 


In recent years, vintage fashion has very much become a popular choice for women all across the country and the world. It has become recognised as one of the key ingredients to any fashionistas wardrobe. And with this resurgence in vintage clothing has come along a demand for vintage jewellery. There are some simply stunning vintage jewellery pieces to be found, their intricacy, antiqueness and everlasting qualities are something so special that they simply cannot be replicated or mirrored in any other jewellery type. One of the most precious types of vintage jewellery is the vintage locket, it has become extremely popular lately as necklaces have become very much a centrepiece and fashion statement amongst the accessorising world.

The combination of vintage jewellery with the extremely touching aspect of the locket is something which merges together beautifully to create an overall heartwarming piece of jewellery. The locket is important because it allows the individual to place a picture or memento of people who mean the most to them; usually their family or loved one. This means that they can carry the people that they love close to their hearts at all time.

The vintage aspect of the locket adds an element of tradition which is something unique and special. It is often the reason that such pieces are passed down the family through generation and generation as the antiquity of the jewellery is something symbolic to the family name. It is unlikely that you will be able to find something else which possesses such individuality and this is the reason that a lot of people buy vintage lockets as a gift for someone that they care about.

So if you are looking for a special piece of jewellery that you can hold close to your heart for decades to come then a vintage locket is a good option for you. It is something which can be passed on to your children and their children for years and years to come and this prospect is something which is extremely heartwarming and special.

Purchase an experience you can both enjoy after lockdown


Another gift idea when purchasing for your loved one this year is to buy an experience gift. Depending on where you live right now, you probably have some restrictions in place regarding social distancing. Some people aren’t allowed to leave their home at all. Therefore, it would definitely be nice to have something to look forward to, wouldn’t it? So, why not purchase an experience that you and your partner can enjoy later in the year? Plus, this is the sort of gift that you are going to be able to benefit from as well.

If you are not sure what sort of experience your partner would like because the relationship is new, why not go for something a bit more generic? You could book a fancy meal or a spa day, for example. These are the sort of things that every person would enjoy. After all, we all like good food and the opportunity to relax and be pampered, so this is a perfect gift to give to the person you love.

To conclude, it makes sense to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember considering the times that we live in today. You do not have to spend a lot of money to make your other half feel special on this day. It is genuinely the thought that counts. A little bit of thought can go a very long way when buying something for a person you love.

4 Tips for Planning an Unforgettable Wedding Party

Your wedding is supposed to be one of the most important days of your life. When you and your partner profess your undying love and pledge to cherish each other as long as you both shall live. You invite all your closest friends and family and dress up beautifully for the occasion, and once you’ve tied the knot you throw an unforgettable party for everyone.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime occasion: one that you and your partner will look back on fondly in years to come and reminisce about with your children and grandchildren. It will be a priceless memory, and for that reason, you want to make it a day to remember. Yet so many people plan unoriginal and unimaginative wedding parties that are unlikely to stick in anyone’s minds. You want your party to be exciting, unique, and unforgettable. Your guests should go home with a beaming smile on their faces and memories to last a lifetime. This effect will require more than a sit-down meal and a cheesy wedding DJ.

If you want to throw a wedding party no one will forget, here are four great tips to get you started on the planning.

Keep the party moving

We’ve all been to weddings where the atmosphere dies down at some point in the evening and the dance floor empties. People end up bored and worn out, sitting in chairs and quietly drinking with the people they came with. This is the last thing you want at your wedding party so you must make a plan to avoid the event becoming stagnant. Make sure you plan everything to the last detail and ensure all aspects are well-paced throughout the day to prevent boredom. Avoid lengthy waiting times between courses and don’t let any section of the wedding party last longer than it needs to.

Plan some unique entertainment

It seems to be an unwritten rule that weddings need to have a DJ that plays cheesy music, but this won't make you stand out from the rest. Include some entertainment that is truly unique and surprises your guests. Perhaps an unconventional band or even an unusual act such as a stand-up comedian or street performer. Games are always a good way to keep people busy and smiling, and Cornhole Worldwide provides a great selection of themed outdoor games for all kinds of events.

Have something for everyone

You will no doubt have guests from all different demographics, age groups, and backgrounds at your party, so not every part of your reception is bound to please every single person. The best you can do is make sure there is something for everyone, which includes a range of different foods, music, and entertainment options. Make sure you take into account people’s dietary requirements and remember that not everyone drinks alcohol so it shouldn't be the focal point of the evening.

Provide souvenirs

If you want people to remember your big day, what better way than by giving them a lasting memory to take home. A party bag full of delicious treats and a slice of wedding cake is always a winning formula, and you could also invest in a photo booth so guests can dress up in silly outfits and take a photo home with them as a souvenir.
