“Avocado face masks are one of the best and most nutritious masks that you can use on your skin. The fruit is packed with vitamins and unsaturated fats that work wonders on people who have acne as well as sensitive or dry skin. They also help to slow down the aging process making them highly versatile and desirable. Here are some avocado face mask recipes that are effective, inexpensive and so easy to make that you’re sure to love them.” – Spontaneouschick.com

1) Avocado Oatmeal Face Mask

This is one of the best Avocado face masks for people with dry skin it’s super moisturizing and help to restore damaged skin.

  • ½ Ripe avocado
  • ½ Cup of oatmeal

Cook the oatmeal as instructed on the package and mash up the avocado meat with a fork. Mix the two ingredients together and apply the paste to your skin. After 10 – 15 minutes wash it off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry.

2) Avocado Honey Face Mask

It really works to give your skin a beautiful glow.

  • 1 Ripe avocado
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey

Mash up the avocado with a fork and stir in the honey until it turns into a paste. Once done apply it to your skin and leave it on for 15- 20 minutes. When you’re done, wash off the mixture with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a soft towel.

3) Avocado Yogurt Face Mask

This avocado face mask is also a great one for people who need to pump up the moisture in their skin and is one of my favorites for the cold winter months.

  • ¼ Ripe avocado
  • 1 Teaspoon of plain organic yogurt
  • ½ Teaspoon of honey

Using a fork mash the avocado until it’s soft and then mix in the honey and yogurt to make a paste. Apply it to your skin for 10 – 15 minutes and remove it by washing your skin with lukewarm water.

4) Avocado Egg Face Mask

A recipe that makes for a great avocado face mask for acne because it reduces the oil found on the face.

  • ½ Ripe avocado
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

Mash up the avocado with a fork and fold in the egg white and lemon juice. Apply it to your face for 10 to 15 minutes being careful to not get it into your eyes. When finished wash your skin with lukewarm water and pat it dry.

This Time Period + Arranged Marriage = Forever Alone (or Forever Depressed)

wpid-arranged-marriage

Ok, so I have to say I’m fuckin’ tired of hearing my friend wanting to get married, yet she says that it’s a taboo to talk to guys on a personal level.

Are you fucking kidding me??

Ok, let me dissect her narrow views in social relationships. I understand she’s an extremely religious person and would die before having a boyfriend/girlfriend type of relationship, however, she NEEDS to be able to talk to guys and deciding for herself whether they’d be husband material or not, and the first damn step to that is actually becoming friends with guys, since that’s the best way to get to know someone.

She keeps having old men or creepy unstable guys asking for her hand in marriage, and then she complains.

Ummm… duh. Arranged marriage these days are a sign of desperation and being unable to find someone, it’s kind of like going on a dating website – except in dating websites you are able to get to know the person way more before deciding to freakin’ marry them.

Also, what sane young guy would want to do arranged marriages???

1.Most of them already have girlfriends they plan on being with and don’t need mommy to hook them up with a bride who sits at home waiting to be called by the ‘perfect’ guy.

2. They end up falling for their friend who goes to university with them, or works at their job place, and then the guy ends up calling her family to ask to marry her

Notice that both include communication and friendship between both guy and girl???

If you don’t notice, good luck staying unmarried at your family’s house for the rest of your life, maybe start up a knitting business or something.

If you plan on sitting around to have someone amazing call and ask for your hand in marriage, while you don’t even talk to guys, or befriend them or even show what an awesome person you are – who the fuck are you expecting to call?? Your imaginary friend from kindergarten or something???

Seriously, grow up and open your brain (if you are close-minded) the world didn’t end 50 years ago, you know.

Grand Cinemas

 

So last weekend I went with my love to Grand Cinemas, and we went to watch Skyfall in the VIP section; I didn’t want him to get seats in the VIP section because, well, 10KD per ticket! In my eyes, that’s too much for a bit over an hour worth of movie that’s for sure censored.

So let’s see, the popcorn.. 😦 There was salt and I think butter, but no caramel 😦 I’m not really much of a sweet tooth, but cinema without caramel popcorn just ain’t right! Anyway, we went to the VIP lobby section, ordered our snacks (well my love did, I was still full from the dinner and dessert we just had :P) so then we headed to the cinema itself, the snacks they would bring to us once we were seated.

During the movie, they brought us little free snacks and drinks in champagne glasses (no no not alcohol duh :P) and the seats… oh lord, the seats! They were awesome! Soft, reclining chairs for us to be able to lay down while watching the movie! The only complaint I have about the seating is that it’s too far spaced from the person I came with 😦 The seats were all in rows of 2, and there was such a wide table separating my guy and I, so that really sucked for us. I mean, I wanna at least be able to hold his hand >_>

Now, about the censorship, the only thing censored was the sex act itself, everything else, including the “foreplay” that leads to the sex was uncut – Good!!!! I mean, there’s nothing we can really do about the complete censoring issue, but at least here not unnecessary stuff was cut. Now, I’m not sure if this is only the case because we went to VIP, maybe the regular side has more things cut? I’m not sure, and I’ll have to find out sometime soon.

So yeah, only complaint was being too far from my dude, and the lack of caramel popcorn 😮

Censorship FAIL

Ahhh, the censorship issue here in Kuwait!

So couple of days ago I went to the cinema with my love, and we already knew the amount of things the cinema (well Kuwait in general) censors – they even censor “too violent” scenes -_- SERIOUSLY??? There is a reason we chose that specific movie!!! TO WATCH THE VIOLENCE! Anyway, back to that day, we were surprised that they censored the swearing this time as well!!!! Every minute, there was a deafening silence whenever a swear word was censored – do you know how annoying that is??? It’s like watching a buffering movie from the internet when your connection is so slow!

God, it’s so retarded. I mean, they censor kissing, “sex” scenes, too gore-y scenes, and sometimes just random scenes so that they can squeeze in another movie on that day to make more money  -___- Do they not realize MOST PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT SEX AND SHIT LIKE THAT??? I mean, HELLO, how the fuck did they come to exist??? From another Virgin Mary or what??? *facepalm* No wonder the people here are so sexually repressed and immature about such a subject. Being sheltered from such matters DON’T HELP! Just makes things worse. Plus, I hope they realize most of the people end up probably watching pornos at home, so acting “sex scenes” seriously aren’t a big deal – so they should just grow the fuck up with their stupid mentality on the censorship matter.

There’s a new cinema in Kuwait opening, Grand Cinemas, I’m hoping they don’t have such a retarded censorship going on – I mean I know it’s not their fault, and it comes from the higher ups (Although I have a feeling Cinescape is just retarded and taking the censorship deal to a whole new level), but I’m hoping it’s not as strict since they are actually showing movies that are banned by Cinescape.
Guys, imagine, Paranorman was BANNED in the Cinescape cinemas. Check here at the retarded list of banned movies in Cinescape.
Man, a few weeks ago there was a rumor going around that messages sent to each other on the phone will be monitored….

Ehhh, what ?!

The sad part is – it’s not so hard to believe over here, shit like that is definitely a possibility.

Seriously, grow up people.

One of my (many) pet peeves, is those who say “I can’t lose weight, I’ve tried and I can’t”, then I see them eating chips, burgers, sweets upon sweets – NON STOP. Well, GEE, I wonder why you possibly can’t be losing weight?!?! It pisses me off. I mean, if you don’t want to lose weight, that’s not a problem, but complaining about it and not working for it?? Just shut your idiotic mouth up with another greasy burger.

I mean, I’d understand if someone has a medical problem and therefore is struggling to lose weight, but the people I know so far have no damn medical issue.

I had this one friend, she’s.. horrible. Anyway, before I start listing all the things she’s done and caused, I’ll just stick to the thing that I want to tell you about her that’s relevant to this.

When I started to work on myself to lose weight, she said that she wants to lose weight. Now that’s all fine and dandy. Except, here I am, actually sticking to my calorie count, and eating proper food – and there she is, whining, and bitching about her weight, and then goes and asks me for money to buy Cheetos.. 3 bags to eat at once (more junk would follow as usual – Oh, and she owes me so much money, one of many reasons why I cut her out of my life) Anyway, one day she comes saying that she is going to start going to a gym. That’s great, right? Wait for it.

So let’s flash forward to a typical day for her, eating non-stop for entire day, only junk food, goes to gym for 2 hour (I highly doubt she even pushed herself at the gym) and then continues with her junk food. She keeps saying she lost weight, but then complains about the fact that she gained weight again while working out…

Other 2 pet peeves of mine – Stupidity and lack of common sense.

Look, I love food, I seriously love food, I used to eat so much junk food back in the day, but then I decided to lose weight and I stuck to it. If I can do it, anyone could do it.

And the thing is, this girl, she isn’t in a well financial state (again, she owes me SO much, like no kidding, around maybe over 400 kd) and here she is wasting money for the gym, money she could’ve used to pay me back for everything. Ah well, in the end it doesn’t matter as long as she’s out of my life xD

Another thing, I get it’s a bit more difficult for us girls to lose weight in Kuwait, since there’s literally restaurants, diners, burger joints and bakeries around every corner (I mean it, literally around every corner, I’m not exaggerating) and there’s barely anything to do here except eat and shop and go to the movies where we.. eat. Not to mention, Kuwait’s culture is food oriented as well, with all the family gatherings and what not, there’s always food – fat loaded food and desserts, and huge amounts of it at that – but if you really put your mind to it, you will find that it’s not that hard to do, you don’t even need to gym. You can read my post on the way I shed my weight, here.

It’s possibly ok! You can enjoy yummy food, in lesser calories and amounts! Eventually, you’ll even lose the need to want something like salt and vinegar chips and Cheetos (I used to eat salt and vinegar food like it was water, and drink cola like it was air, now though I have to urge to want it).

Guys, and especially girls, stop fucking whining, if there’s nothing medically wrong with you then shut the fuck up and go lose the weight that you oh-so hate. I’m allergic to sweat and break out terribly when I sweat alot, but did that stop me?? No. It was worth it, now with less weight, I sweat less. Just shut the fuck up with your pathetic excuses – Anything is possible.
