About beauty and a Calm Jar DIY

Sometimes I hear people saying that fashion is only about beauty next to someone replying that fashion is not about beauty, that is about wearing whatever you want and having a personal style.
Well, I do think that fashion is about beauty because don't matter how style you have fashion is about looking good and feeling happy and comfortable in anything you're wearing.

Beauty is what we see in everything, especially in people and I think that in order to let everyone see the beauty that's inside you, you need to follow a couple of rules:
  1. Do what you always dreamed to do and live how you want to live; This has something to do with another quote that says "If you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day", because doing what we love to do make us feel happy and being happy is a very important thing so the next rule works...
  2. Always wear a smile; don't forget to smile, never, is the mos precious accessorie that we have so we should never forget to wear it.
  3. Make time for you; it could be reading everyday 20 minutes the book you have bought last summer, a moment to be online doing whatever you want such as seeing beautiful pictures, using polyvore or tumblr, maybe a hole hour just to see facebook or twitter, have a cup of coffee or tea, listen to your favorite artist new disc...
  4. Have hobbies; go out with your friends, that special person, or even with you pet, to anywhere, to the movies, to a park, to the mall, have time for you, maybe once a month or once a week.
So yes, Fashion is about beauty, but beauty is about happiness.

But I know that even if you are the most positive and happy person in the world, there are sometimes that you just want to smash your head to the wall and scream the louder you can`t, and when I found out about "Calm Jars" I tough "this is cool, but, will it work out?" and it did, you just have to do it, whenever you feel frustrated or angry, you just shake really hard the jar and watch all the glitter come down, by the time it ends you will be more calm. 

Here's how you can do one:

  1. Grab a mason jar, any size will be good, it should be clean.
  2. Put 1 part of oil and 9 parts of water into the jar
  3. Put a tea spoon of dish soap and mix it or don't, it doesn't matter.
  4. Put loads and loads of glitter, well, whatever you feel it will be ok.
  5. Close the jar, really really close it, you don't want your jar to drain because that will make you more frustrated hehe, if you are weak like me, go ask your new and cute neighbor to help you close it, if it doesn't drain you have my permission to marry him, or at least date him.
  6. You're done! Enjoy your Calm Jar
*To see a beautiful set of calm jars go to my polyvore

Lots of love
