Hello everyone ! I hope you all are doing great.So, Today I will be sharing my experience & some pics from Niagara trip. Niagara falls is a tremendously gorgeous group of ¬†waterfalls.It’s a delight from nature to see.It is located on the border of Canadian province,Ontario and New york state of USA.Its breathtaking & a must see ūüôāIMG_20170703_110951589_HDR

The best part of visiting this place was “Maid of the mist”,the boat tour of Niagara Falls.It was amazing to view the gallons of water falling with a grumbling sound and feeling the cool mist on your face . I just love nature and felt fortunate to experience this .Here is the pic :

As we preferred to take the bus tour,it included the visit to “Thousand islands” and “Lake Ontario” as well.They were just a treat to the trip as both of these places were wonderful.”Thousand islands” is a group of 1000 islands with many cute castles and shorelines,and natural scenes.It is located in the Lawrence river on the US-Canada border.As a first time visitor,It felt like a small paradise for me. Few pics of it :KODAK Digital Still Camera

It feels really refreshing and energizing when you visit nature.It gives you an instant boost of happiness and peace.According to me,”Spending time with nature is the best cure “. Have an awesome day ahead ūüôā !

3.Charcoal and black sugar dual action scrub and facial mask :

This is an excellent scrub that helps in exfoliating your skin, it’s quite cheap as it is ¬†6 fl.oz for 6.95$ ¬†.I like it the most because it removes the blackheads very gently and ¬†leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh.Well ,it did not¬†feel like a mask but it really worked for me as a scrub.It has charcoal ¬†that helps in deep cleaning and sugar helps in removing the dead cells .So, do give it a try.

POSITIVE THINKING

¬†Lets talk positive today ! yeah the solution to every problem ,big or small.All of us go through a lot in our daily lives .Life is full of ups and downs,it’s never the same.Each day we have to face a new challenge in some way,but what keeps us going is the positivity inside us.No matter what ,always stay positive.Always think whatever happens to us has a specific reason ,its meant to be that way .I know it’s not easy ,but trust me its all in our mind .I myself am a very emotional person .I used to get hurt very quickly ,a single harsh word wounded me deep inside.Honestly speaking ,whoever talked to me in a bad way seemed like a villain to me.It happened to me several times and every single time it happened gave me pain and disappointment.But one day I realised ,that the problem was in me.I was the one who was taking all those things on my heart that were not worth my attention.I was not negative even at that point ¬†nor were the people.But the fact is ,how I ¬†perceived things.I changed my perception ,always remember everything has a positive side too.Everyone in this world is different and unique.We hurt ourselves when we start keeping expectations from others.We want them to become us ,which is never possible and that is the point where all our trouble starts.Never forget that no one can become you .If somebody hurts you , think they are not understanding like you.Those people who keep hurting others are lonely inside,they don’t know the value of relationships and eventually those are the ones who ruin themselves. The only problem with us is that we ignore the positive aspects and negativity captures us first.I believe positivity is a practice .We need to develop it from within.Start thinking everything in a positive way and you will notice the change in yourself as well as in the people around you.Positivity is so vibrant and infectious that it spreads faster than anything. It is the energy ,the feeling that keeps you energetic and lively in a great and even in a worse moment . I am not saying that being emotional is bad or having sentiments is wrong .But being positive matters,It will give you the strength to stand in any crucial condition,and face no matter what comes your way it will give you the hope for another new beginning.There are few simple words that can keep you away from negativity,IGNORE , AVOID and SMILE.Ignore anything,that is disturbing you,avoid those things that hurt you and smile whenever you can.Smiling is the best way to stay positive.If you feel ,your speaking can create chaos ,smile and let it go.Start practicing positivity from small things of your daily life and you will experience big changes for sure. So stay positive and keep smiling :)!

The most important and sensitive part of our body is skin.It needs the utmost care and it plays a vital role in reflecting the condition of our body from inside. If you are healthy and your ¬†body system is running properly ,your skin is going to speak all of it .According to me , lifestyle affects our skin in a tremendous way .The way you live ,kind of food you consume ,duration of your sleep and the time you are giving your body to relax is all that affects our skin in one or other way .I am speaking all this because , I have experienced it.Even you all can relate to it .Yeah , but the most important thing for a beautiful and happy skin is to be happy. Try to be happy no matter what .Happiness works better than anything else ,if you are happy ,your skin glows without any makeup and it can cure your biggest ailment. Water plays a crucial role for our skin ,its said that 60% of our body is made of ¬†water.Most of us ignore this very basic but really important thing ,thats drinking lots of water.Water flushes out toxins from our ¬†body and it keeps the body hydrated which gives moisture our skin.But thankfully there are many easy ways to take care of our skin. I am sharing some easy remedies for you that can add moisture and shine to your skin.Do give it a try ūüôā !
