Looking for the perfect Bra

A couple of months ago I started checking on Bras again, mine are almost at the end of their life. I used to be size 36B then changed to 38D and because I gained weight again I wanted to check on bigger options but I didn’t know that when it comes to Bras sizes you don’t go from 38D to 40D and that’s it. It depends on where you gain weight, band or cup.

The easiest way to apply eyeshadow

Ok Paola…think concentrate…you can write a simple short post 😄ok this is funny.

Well, I think my drawing which took me 3 days to make and like 5 years avoiding it finally is here. I think isa very simple and self-explanatory, to be honest maybe it isn’t because I wanted something very minimalistic and simple and I sacrificed details but I loved it 🥳

I always have been confused about eyeshadow brushes so it took me like 1000 YouTube videos to finally find the pattern and find the key brushes that would help me create a cool eyeshadow look 🙂 and here they are:

Jazz and Bill Evans 🎶

 
 
I didn’t know anything about Jazz but my husband (check his blog hopstrains.com excellent short name) has been researching and finding a lot about different musicians. 

For me, it has always been difficult to listen to Jazz because I always considered it as something that people that are highbrow 🧐  and full of themselves listed to, until recently when I noticed one of my favorite illustrators (Frannerd) listened to it and I was humble and open enough to finally give it a try and I loved it.

Why a “No” is a “Yes” to myself?

 

“A question is just an opportunity to be honest” –Byron Katie

I started wondering why it is so hard for me to say “NO”. Sometimes, I say it but I feel guilty afterwards, like wrong and I was wondering why it is so hard inside my mind to be honest. So I started researching on google and I found this article:

25 Ways to Say No by Kim A. Flodin

I liked it, I think that is a good introduction to the main question: “Why is it so hard to say “No”?” but for me it wasn’t completely clear, so I continued with my research and as always I decided to look for Byron Katie’s experience and I found this video:
