Turmeric power, olive oil, honey, a few drops of lemon juice, then I put coconut oil on my face once I wash it off. And no, I don’t do my eyebrows :).
My best friends all all bring positivity to my life, they make me happy, they are encouraging and supportive no matter what. They are more than best friends. They are my backbone, my hipbone, my sun and moon. Everything plus more.
You are right, I am really happy with the people in my life. The secret? Keep positive and encouraging people in your life. Your friends and those you keep around you play a key role in your happiness. You absorb their energies. Why would you want to absorb negativity and be down all the time? You don’t. Its a cycle of positivity. You give good, they absorb your good. They give you good, you absorb their good.
fat or skinny, does not matter. what matters is that he meets my requirements:
a) he likes my cooking, food in general and likes to eat,
b) he is bearded

No, only because Islam is not just a religion to me.. It is my lifestyle and I practice it everyday in some way, shape or form. I plan to raise my kids with this lifestyle, so yeah..my other has to be Muslim to give my children that and to understand my choices without getting upset and whatnot. And from my own family experiences, I’ve seen too many of these situations get ugly real quick and that makes me even more hesitant.
