CHEERS TO A GOOD START

Happy New Year to everyone. For quite some days I was wondering about what would be my resolutions in 2019. I am done with the dieting plans, done with exercising promises, done with meet up the deadlines, unable to save and also fails to keep everybody happy all the time. So, basically, I am done with all those disciplinary actions that I promised to myself on earlier years, and still not be able to keep up with them. I am sure many unfortunate souls have the same situation. So, I was thinking why should I follow all these disciplines which are not meant to be syncing with me and then regretting the rest of the year because I couldn’t follow it. Have I become the world’s most disorganized person? If I am not be able to take care of my routine how would I plan to take care of my family and my life? I felt guilty, frustrated even. Then, after cornering myself with these upsetting thoughts, I started to search for the best resolution that I can actually follow in 2019. And I have found it. My resolution is –A stress-free year.

To live a stressfree, ease out, a productive and relaxing lifestyle I want to concentrate on 3 Golden Rules- ACCEPTANCE, ENJOYMENT, INNOVATIONS.

 When things are not according to our way, we can become frustrated, irritated and stressed out, then the need for ACCEPTANCE comes, it is a smarter way to deal the situation rather being defensive. A good example is, I often get stressed out on my time management skills. When I realized that I could not finish all of my dues in a day or a week, I become very frustrated, but being so much worried on not be able to complete tasks, if I can focus on the tasks that are already completed and accept that, these are all I can do in a day, and those things I can’t do, I can do it later or manage them in time accordingly, will definitely ease out my stress. I think this is the hardest step, to accept the situation and let go all the rules.

The next step is a little easier, ENJOYMENT– when I already accepted the crisis, then half of my stress is already gone. And to make it more sync with me, if I start to enjoy the situation, that will be a great help. Often, I get stressed out about my messy rooms. My toddler often plays with my kitchen stuff and loves to create a big pile of toy mess around the house. So, earlier I keep cleaning them and he used to mess around again, again I cleaned them, so it was going on a loop, and become so intolerable, but now, I started to learn that instead of getting the rooms clean again and again, if I start playing with him with those stuff and maybe sometimes, even pretend to play with him, then, slowly showing him how to keep the toys in the toy storages, then he also gets interested, he wants to be involved, in that way we both can spend some fun time together.

Now comes the third step, to make it more like me, to make the situation fully in harmonious with me, to make my enthusiasm more sustainable, I need to put my best efforts, my INNOVATIONS, my creativity. Like, to help with my elder one with her homework, I often opt for fun and different ways, or just give little twists in my daily cooking, or give my rooms a new look with decorative stuffs, do more DIYs, all these can make the everyday boring, not so challenging tasks, more accepting, more enjoyable.

And after all these, even so, the situation is giving me intense stress, then it is time to give up, then I need to get away or change the situation. Not to feel guilty or regret, because I would know I already have given my best efforts. 

To sum it up, this year I want to focus on more positive, productive, and enjoyable lifestyle.

I will keep an active life and put enough efforts to make my days fun and productive.

I will keep entertained myself with good reads and creativities that I want to do.

Every day I will do my breathing exercise and write my thoughts on my journal.

I will try to be more empathetic and try to understand my family’s needs.

I will find my ME TIME and do those pieces of stuff that I wanted to do for very long.

I will adjust my expenses according to my savings. and I will cherish all those things that I already have.

I will avoid all those people, who give me a negative vibe and keep my friends close.

I will do more traveling and I will keep remembering myself about all the good memories that I have and be grateful.

Let’s make this New Year a time to celebrate life, the time to achieve new goals, time to be the best of you.

Christmas Fruit Cake

Feeling festive yet? No, then try this Christmas Fruit Cake, this rich aromatic cake will surely raise your festive spirit. As I recollect my oldest most memory of Christmas, fruitcake has always been there. I like fruitcake all year round, but it tastes special when I bake it in my house, surrounded by my family. In the winter, the warm flavor of cinnamon, orange, nuts and dry fruits create the most magical scent.

This recipe will make a 4-pound cake. I like to use dry fruits, soaked in brandy, which is optional. This time, I soaked them for one month. It took me 3 hours to bake the cake on 300 F. Let’s go through the ingredients.

All purpose flour- 275g

Butter- 275g

Brown sugar- 275g

Egg-5

Ground Almond- 75g

Nuts- Cashew, Pistachio, Walnut- 80g

Orange zest and juice of freshly squeezed orange juice.

Spices- Ground Cinnamon-1 and half teaspoon, ground cloves- 1 teaspoon, ground dry ginger- 1 teaspoon, ground nutmeg- 1 teaspoon.

Roughly one and a half cups of dry fruit soaked in 3/4 cups of Brandy. The dry fruits I used- red cherry, dates, dried apricots, black raisins, candied ginger, candied orange peel, tutty- fruity.

Now the mixing-

In the first step, I whisked the softened butter and brown sugar. Then I add the eggs, one by one, mixed it until I got the smooth texture.

Then I add the ground almond, spices and orange zest, mixed them lightly. Then I sieved the flour, and incorporate nicely with the mixture.

In the next step, I add the freshly squeezed orange juice.

Then I add the nuts and dry fruits, and I folded them with a spatula.

The batter is ready. I buttered a 9-inch loaf pan. Then I cover the inside of the pan with parchment paper, leaving some extra paper on the sides to pull up the cake later.

Baking time- This is going to be a rich dense cake, so baking with low temperature and for a longer time will bake the cake perfectly or the outside of the cake would be burnt and inside would be raw.

My Cake was ready after 3 hours and then I kept it in the pan until it cooled down completely.

Next step is to cut it slice by slice. And then I like to store it in an airtight container. Feeding the cake- It is optional. Sometimes instead of cutting it right away, I store the cake in the airtight container and poke some holes, and feed the cake with brandy or orange juice. This feeding time can be deferred from 1-2 weeks. This process will make the fruitcake more moist and flavourful.

Here, in my home also, my kids love to engage with different types of holiday-themed arts and crafts. Well, every year gingerbread house would be the main attraction, they start to decorate it, but then within a few minutes, they lose their patience. So, this year instead of a gingerbread house, I bought ready to decorate gingerbread cookies and besides that’s my kids created some easy to do Christmas arts, inspired from Pinterest. Here are some easy holiday fun activities that can be done at home.

How to prep skin before applying makeup

We all know that makeup can create wonder to your skin and when you apply makeup with the right technique and with the right amount prepping, it can look flawless. There is no secret that a professional makeup job often looks so naturally gorgeous because of the preparation that goes onto the skin before applications. Now, this prepping can be time-consuming, if you want to pamper your skin with all the luxurious products and high-end brands, then absolutely you can do that. But when you are juggling time between your daily routine and beautifying yourself, then all you need is some simple steps to follow before applying your foundation. The absolute must skin preparing is needed to follow not just to look flawless but also this skin prepping is going to save your delicate skin from various products in a long run, thus, prepping your skin before you apply your makeup is vitally important. So, let’s jump into the must needed steps of skin prepping before applying makeup:

Cleanse:

Making sure your skin is optimally cleansed is the first step in achieving that flawless makeup complexions. Clean all the previous makeup residue, like a little smudge of eyeliner left on the eye corners, thoroughly clean the eyelashes as waterproof mascaras can be hard to remove and then clean the lipstick stains from lips.

Toning:

Toning is an important second step that completes the cleansing process, and a simple toning with a cotton is all you need to open up the pores and give your skin that natural fresh look. A good toner will remove any remaining bits of oil, dirt, and makeup left behind by the cleanser. More importantly, the toner will help to soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance.

Spraying rose water on all over face and neck will also make the skin well nourished and glowing.

Moisturise:

To achieve the dewy natural makeup look, moisturize your skin is a key step. I can’t put enough emphasis on how important is this step. No matter what your skin type is, oily or combination or dry, using skin appropriate moisturizer will definitely help you to achieve your desired makeup look.

Prime:

Finally, the last step in achieving the best makeup prep possible is by using a really great primer. Think of your face as a blank canvas, you cleanse it, make it nicely moisturized and then the primer will help your skin becomes so smooth, that any makeup you apply afterward will beautifully blend and give you the ultimate natural finish.

There are some extra care for your skin for that selfie-ready makeup-

Exfoliate:

Follow up your cleanse with a great exfoliator to really rid of excess build-up and clogged pores, leaving your complexion silky and refreshed. You do want to be careful to not over-exfoliate however, exfoliate your skin two times is enough to improve the skin texture and reduce the visibility of blackheads and whiteheads.

Eye creme and eye primer:

Eye creme is also a very essential part of your skin care routine and applying eye creme before the eye makeup will surely help to protect the sensitive eye area.

And there is no secret that eye primer is a must so that the eyeshadows can pop up beautifully.

Sun protection or SPF:

For a daytime makeup look, protect your skin from the harsh UV rays is highly recommended. Though, nowadays, SPF can be easily found in many makeup products, using those are also a great help for the skin.

Serums and Hydrating Mists:

The various kinds of serums are available for making the skin looks great. Sometimes I use them before the makeup and sometimes I skip this step. It basically depends on the condition of the skin and it varies from day to day.

The hydrating mist sprays are good options to put extra hydration in the skin to prevent the dryness. And with these steps, I want to wrap up my most favorite skin prepping steps before applying makeup. Hope this helps you to find your way to prep the skin.

And as always STAY GORGEOUS, HAPPY BLOGGING
