I absolutely love the two television shows Once Upon A Time on ABC and Grimm on NBC. If you are new to the television shows, both are Fairy Tales with a dark and modern twist. A few weeks ago I found a synchronicity in both television shows. This would be the Yellow Beetle Volkswagen that both the main characters drive. I have always loved the quirkiness and fun of it. Especially, when I first saw the iconic picture of The Beatles with the car in the background. Anyway, a week later I found out why they both drive this car and why it is so important. I talked to a man who actually gave the idea of the car to the writers of the show. I think we all get nervous and stressed in life about certain situations. We all wish we could have just some hope or a feeling that it will be okay. Well I learned a beautiful way to help give you hope in times like that. If you happen to see a Yellow Volkswagen Beetle it is a nudge from your “Fairy Godmother” everything is going to be okay. If you want call it your angels, a god wink, or whatever you want!
It than made sense to me why this car is on both shows. I love life’s synchronicities and how nothing is never a coincidence. This is another subject I will be blogging about from time to time. I also love hearing stories from people I know and strangers about synchronicities or lucky charm type things that have helped them or caused miracles. I would absolutely love readers to comment some stories, synchronicities, or “god winks” if you will that have happened in their life.
Happy Monday everyone!!!
It’s finally warming up! So I cant think of a better week to revamp that glow. I have some beauty secrets and cheap diy’s
that will do wonders! Beauty secrets that will kiss those winter blues good-bye. Tell me what you think? Better
yet tell me your secrets since I just told you some of mine….
*Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair
Hair- Buy or better yet recycle a spray bottle. Fill it with 50 percent organic apple cider vinegar and 50 percent water. Shake well. Spray and distribute evenly through out hair pre-shower( some use in shower/some use after show). This is a great think to even your ph in your hair and help it grow. It’s kind of a clarifying shampoo from nature. Ps- Make sure you have some cloudy white substance on the bottom. This is called “the mother” and where all the good nutrients are. This is why you want to make sure to shake well also before spraying. Other uses: Great as a toner, take a small shot to speed metabolism and get rid of bloat, healthy skin, and helps sore throats!
*Chapped Lips Cure All
I love the mini tub of Vaseline’s lip therapy but here’s an extra whammy with it. Use Emergen-C crush it up finely and mix with any lip balm of yours. The Vaseline Lip Therapy is the perfect tiny little container to mix this into it. The extra boost of Vitamin C doesn’t only kill colds but it completely heals chapped lips!
^Vinegar Long Lasting Mani & Pedi
I hate when my polish chips more than anyone. Recently I found out a secret that is amazing. Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and apply to each clean nail. Let dry for a minute just to be safe. Than apply your base coat, polish, and top coat. I promise your mani will last longer than usual!
*Coconut Oil Pulling for Amazing Teeth
Coconut Oil of course has amazing uses but did you know it is also amazing for teeth. Oil Pulling is when you swish oil for about a minute before brushing. You want to swish for a minute or longer, spit, rinse with salt water, than brush as usual. It completely gets rid of bad breath, promotes healthy gums and teeth, removes stains, and helps teeth stay white.
So those were just a taste of some healthy and cheap tricks. I will post more in a few days. Happy Pay It Forward Day Everyone!
There have been some extremely kind people I have met along the years. I think we don’t tell these people enough or do things to remind them we do. I came up with an idea while appreciating someone’s kindness a month ago. I decided to combine a chain letter with a swap/haul type of deal. I called it…”These are a few of my favorite things”. Include a short note listing 5 of your favorite things and items or tiny gifts to represent that. Include in the note now send this to someone who has been kind to you (and so fourth and on and on). For example this is one I sent someone…..
1.Music – Include maybe a mix or a iTunes 5 dollar gift card. Maybe if it’s a gift card include on the back a list of songs that remind you of them or they would like.
2. Dream catchers
3. Tarot Cards
4. Yoga- I sent a pair of yoga gloves
5. Spirit Junkie The book
This is a short list of a few of my favorite things and some ideas. Sunday is national pay it forward day! Let me know if you like the idea or what you did to celebrate and share the joy ❤
Free Spirited Beauty is a blog combining Beauty, Fashion, DIY Projects, Life, Tips, Topics, Advice, Travel, Food, Fitness, Great hang outs but things also with the flare of Spirituality, Astrology, Numerology, Crystals, Meditation,and so much more. It’s hard for me to summarize what I want and wish for this blog to be. So hopefully people will catch on to it on my journey.
I was having a hard time finding a happy medium of my old world and my new world. I realized the shoe didn’t really fit in both cases. The more I grow up certain traits and hobbies I lose. However, as I got into the more spiritual and “love and light” lifestyle, there were also aspects that didn’t necessarily work for me. That’s the thing 2014 is the year to embrace change…. your way.
I spent most of my young life trying to fit in to something. I was a quirky and light hearted soul who was a bit different. I quickly realized I wasn’t like the girls in my school. It wasn’t until I graduated High School that I realized what a blessing that was. However, than a new wave took over me. I was hanging out with all sorts of different crowds.The last 6 years I spent trying to be the next “it girl”. I also seemed to be in a crowd full of chicks that wanted that exact same thing. It wasn’t a sisterhood, it was a competition. There I was in the city where everyone tries to one up each other. It was exhausting. I suddenly craved just being a hermit. Something I was never quite good at.
I saw girls I knew from high school getting married. The girls I knew from being out and about in the city, becoming success in their own unique way. They were living the dream,the good life. I was so lost with who the hell I was. I straight up broke down. I had a series of not so fun events happen. I will admit it had to happen. If I didn’t have a wake up call, and in the extreme way I did, I would of never changed.
The week of Christmas 2012,I was in a near fatal car accident.I hit a brick wall and immediately lights were out for me. The next thing I remember when I awoke was being in an ambulance in really bad shape. I remember saying to myself, “Things change now” over and over again. I couldn’t stop thinking it or saying it. It’s like this affirmation was pulled from somewhere and took over.
I prayed 2013 things would change.I was miserable, in pain from my car accident, I totaled my car, had a falling out with someone who was like a sister to me, I was unemployed, depressed, broke,found out life threatening news at a routine check-up, and suffered a really hard loss. I never felt so alone in my life. There I was, the ex life of the party, who was now on the verge of suicide. I was someone who survived an accident I shouldn’t of. I had a cancer scare that luckily was not cancer. However,I wanted to take my own life. I know now how selfish and wreckless that was even to think at the time. I didn’t understand until a while after things happen for a reason
I happened to hear about Gabrielle Bernstien’s story. I ordered her book and suddenly my mind set changed.I was so busy thinking about what I didn’t want to be and what I had to be. It sounds cheesy but I didn’t just let myself be. It kind of put that Beatle’s song in a whole new perspective for me,”Let it Be”. So for almost a year now I have been doing just that.
I want to help people get their inner glow and their outer glow. Taking up a more healthy spiritual lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to be a granola eating, no make-up wearing, hippy. Just as much as wearing make-up/doing your hair doesn’t mean your a vapid mannequin inside. Dance at your favorite places but try new things. Forgive, Let go of grudges, smile at new people you meet. Stop caring so much what others think and just LET IT BE :).
