I really like this magazine cover. It looks very different from the other covers on the newsstands, which is a good thing. And Dakota Johnson looks very different on the cover too. I think she looks very beautiful. I love her makeup and hair a lot.

I know little or nothing about this cover star, I have seen the famous Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and I am not a fan of it at all. It made no sense to me, and the acting was not good enough in my opinion. There was a lot of room left for improvement. On that note, I don’t see myself buying this issue. But for those who may be thinking of grabbing it, here are some excerpts from Johnson’s interview with Glamour magazine.

 

On whether her parents have seen any of her movies –

“They haven’t because it’s such a tricky thing. It’s too uncomfortable for them. It’s one thing if a film has one sex scene in it, but with this, a large part of the premise is the arc of their sexual relationship, and I think that’s a little inappropriate for my family to watch.”

So sad her family can’t watch her biggest movie to date because of the very raunchy sex scenes.

On whether she can ever imagine a time when she thinks: “I wish I hadn’t done those films” –

“It comes in waves. But this project is not going to be my swan song. It has put my life on a path that I didn’t plan to go down, but I do feel proud of it. And the films have allowed me to do so many different projects and travel so much. In the end, Fifty Shades has plopped me in a world that I really wanted to be in.”

I guess Fifty Shades opened the door of fame for her. That is good.

 

What do you think of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie? Have you seen it? Are you a fan?

6 Tips for the Sensitive Skin

Beautiful skin is a result of the right skin regimen and healthy living. But before deciding on the right skin regimen to follow, you need to know your skin type. Knowing your skin type will determine the ideal steps and methods you have to take to have glowing skin.

I would say the most troublesome skin type to take care of is sensitive skin. Sensitive skin has an extremely low resistance to a whole lot of beauty products and even some natural beauty products. It’s not bad to have sensitive skin. You just need to be extra careful with what you apply on your skin, how much of it to apply and when you apply it.

If you have sensitive skin, here are 6 tips that will help you take good care of your skin.

 

  1. Choose a suitable cleanser for your skin

Cleansing your skin off dirt, dust and grime is important to make sure you have clear and healthy looking skin. But for ladies with sensitive skin, there’s a limit to what you use to cleanse your face.

When choosing the right cleanser, go for cleansers that are specifically designed for sensitive skin. This is to ensure that the chemical content in the cleaners are not too harsh for your sensitive skin.

Cleansing your face twice a day is ideal for your skin type. Use a mild soap to wash off the dirt from the surface, then use a cleanser to help clear out your pores. Remember to be gentle when cleansing.

 

  1. Moisturize regularly

For that smooth and supple skin, moisturize at least twice a day, both at morning and night. Moisturizing your skin helps to protect the skin from any harsh effects from the environment and also give your skin the necessary moisture so it doesn’t dry out.

Be extremely vigilant when it comes to weather changes. When the weather is cold, your skin will need more moisture than before. In such a situation, you have to moisturize more than before to prevent your skin from drying out.

  1. Apply sunscreen

This is more like a sequel to applying moisturizer. Moisturizers will help seal in the moisture in your skin but sunscreen will keep the harmful effect of the sunrays from damaging your skin.

Sensitive skin gets more affected from the sunrays than other skin types. So to be safe, apply sunscreen with SPF 30 for maximum protection.

 

  1. Ease up on the skincare products

Too many skincare products can be too much for your skin to handle. When you have sensitive skin, less is always more. To have beautiful skin, you have to stick to the basics. A simple routine of gentle cleansing, applying moisturizer and sunscreen is all you need to have glowing skin.

There’s no need to overburden your skin with too many products or procedures. Just keep it simple and your skin will thank you for it.

 

  1. Choose your products wisely

To prevent your skin from getting irritated, you need to choose your products wisely. Read the labels of the  products to make sure that they don’t contain any irritants like fragrance and paraben preservatives. A rule of thumb is to stick with products that don’t have complicated formulas. If the list of ingredients on the label is very long, chances are that one or two of the items on the list will irritate your skin. The shorter the list, the safer the product is.

 

  1. Test every new product

This is by far the most effective precautionary measure for sensitive skin. Most of the skin problems you experience are from immediately trusting products that swear they are great for sensitive skin.

Before using a new product, test it out for at least a week on an inconspicuous patch of your skin. If that patch of skin gets inflamed or irritated within a week then don’t use the product.

I wanted to be an Interior Designer

Once upon a time, I wanted to be an Interior Designer. I played around with the idea for months, and even started an online interior designing course to help me achieve my dream. But I never got around to being one. The dream kind of frizzled away, just like my dream to be a Fashion Stylist(which I also studied for), and my dream to be an Accountant/Human Resources Consultant, which I studied at the University for 5 years in total for both degrees.These dreams and more frizzled out, giving room for my current career, which I love by the way.

Sometimes I do catch myself thinking about my dream of becoming an Interior Designer, especially when I am watching TV programmes like Homes Under the Hammer (I use to watch it every morning at some point), and wonder how my life would have been if I really became one. However I am very happy with the career I have chosen and how my life is going, so no regrets here.

I guess that explains my love for pretty homes. I am quite homely; I like to spend time in my home, and I like it to look very pretty. If I had an unlimited budget, I would give my house a complete makeover. I have many home improvement ideas in my head but I have to take it one at a time so I get them all done properly.

I have previously written about our garden plans and our need for a big shed. We got one last summer and we are making good use of it. It is a perfect size, so it stores all our junk neatly, and there is space for some more junk, which is good. The only thing I am considering changing is the shed windows. I recently came across Simply Plastics – a supplier of plastic materials and products for over 25 years, and they stock Replacement Acrylic Shed Windows, so I will be exploring that as an option later in the year.

I would also like to improve some of our home decor like cushions, mats and the likes. I plan to do that this Spring.

My favourite part of the house is the bedroom, followed closely by the living room. I spend a good amount of time in both rooms, and I like them looking their best, as well as the rest of the house. So new bed sheets, duvet sets, curtains and the likes will be updated this year.

The kitchen is my busy place, I like all the required kitchen tools and gadgets in place, to make my cooking as fast as possible, and my family fed. I recently got some new kitchen gadgets so I think we are good as far as the kitchen is concerned.

The truth of the matter is we never stop improving our home. Whether it is a new coach, washing machine or a new home office table and chair, the home improvements never really stop, especially when you are a home owner.

 

Do you enjoying home improvements? Have you ever studied for a career but decided against it?
