STROKE : 4 simple signs that can save anyone ‘s life

9 Jan

Stroke has a new indicator! Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 

RECOGNIZING A STROKE : Just remember theses ‘3’ steps, STR :

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK  SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)

(i.e. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

******VERY IMPORTANT : There is now an additional new sign of a stroke added to the 3 signs : Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is

‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

Brigitte Bardot look for New Years Eve!

30 Dec

The Brigitte Bardot  look : Whats important is to keep it simple with emphasis on the eyes.

What you need :

Primer :

1) Apply a primer before your foundation . Choose your primer depending on your :

a) skin type (dry-normal-combination-oily)

b)  Skin tone ( pink -red-dull)

Primers come in different hues to address specific skin concerns. Green-colored primers will combat redness from rosacea or acne. Mauve/light purple counteracts shallow undertones while pink helps brighten complexions.

My favs :

  • SmashBox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF15 with Dermaxyl Complex
  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance
  •  Hourglass Veil mineral primer SPF 15 & water-resistant

Foundation or BB cream?

Really its up to how your skin looks overall . Too much on a smooth looking skin and its a dive ! So choose accordingly. Foundation for a skin that needs the xtra coverage, BB creams for the ones without major imperfections!

My Favs:

a) Foundations

  • Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation. Just like  a runway-ready look with this innovative mist foundation inspired by the airbrushing techniques used backstage at fashion shows. The unique micro-diffusion system delivers a fine mist of foundation to provide a soft, velvety complexion.
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

b) BB creams or Tinted moisturizer

  • L’Oreal BB cream
  • Laura Mercier Tinted moisturizer

EYES  should be bold

Deep liner and fake lashes

simple lips. Focus is on the eyes

My Favs:

LIPS: Lined and Nude

My favs:

  • Mac H lipstick in the color Hue
  • Rimmel lipstick in color Nude Delight  (Ulta)

Have Fun ! Happy New Years eve everyone ! Bonne Annee 2013!

Flame retardant in Gatorade? Really?

4 Dec


OMG Flame retardant in Gatorade??? How insane is that ??? Well that’s what I found out when sent me an alert via my email. BTW this is a great website to sign up to and stay informed and on top of any subjects that matters to you. You can even create your own petition and post it it on Face book and other sharing medias.

So BVO (brominated vegetable oil) a controversial flame retardant chemical.

 BVO is banned in Europe and Japan, but in the U.S. it’s patented by many chemical companies as a flame retardant–and it’s used in some fruit-flavored drinks, like Gatorade Orange.

How to make your eyes stand out without an eye liner ?

4 Dec


Here’s a little trick we make up artists use a lot when we want to define eyes without really using an eyeliner on the outside of the upper lid:

Lining the upper inner rims of your eyes with black mascara will make lashes look fuller as well as define your eyes beautifully

1) After applying a nude or colored eye shadow base

2) Brush on a light then darker contour shadow on your eye lid

3) Pick up your mascara and an angled shadow or soft brow brush

4) Pick up mascara from the mascara brush with the angled brush

5) With your left finger tips lift the eye lid so you can see under the top of your eyelashes.

6) Place the angled brush to deposit the mascara on the space right under your lash line. Do not rub just press on very gently and move on by sections until you reach the end of the lash line

7) For a more pronounce effect you can repeat this technic on the top of the lash

8) Apply mascara as usual

Results are fantastic for a well designed eye without any dark or harsh lines or mistakes to correct!
