It’s been a rough winter for me – the combination of snow, cold temperature and stress has helped me put on some extra weight that I need to lose asap! I decided to take the arrival of spring as an arrival of a new beginning – and a few weeks ago (3 to be exact) with the help of my two best friends, we all began our journey towards a healthier lifestyle. With the stess of my job, I somehow feel better after eating chocolate. Unfortunately this is a habit that can catch up with you. So, with the turn over of a new leaf, I cut out all my bad eating habits and replaced them with simple and nutritious meals. A lot of these meals consisted of baby spinach – good for you, full of nutrients and delicious when paired with other vegetables (and fruits) in salads. The perfect way to get back on track to a healthy lifestyle.
I didn’t think in a million years that all these vegetables would help with hair growth, in the most unusual place – my eyelashes. Luckily, I was born with long eyelashes (a little on the thin side, but nice and long nevertheless) framing my eyes. In the past two weeks, somehow my eyelashes have gone from long, to long, long, long. With one coat of mascara, they touch my brow bone (and unfortunately leave a smudge on my brow bone that’s usually highlighted with eyeshadow). I have people asking me if I’m wearing false eyelashes and have been hesitant about wearing mascara to work (because my eyelashes look too long!).
So, could spinach be the new super vegetable? Or have all the new nutrients that my body has been intaking taken their toll and are affecting my overall beauty state? I haven’t decided – but I am not complaining.
Ladies – with spring here – and summer right around the corner, why not take this as a new beginning to get healthy. Taking care of your body on the inside only leads to things being taken care of on the outside!
