What to expect when Mercury will Retrograde

Mercury is retrograding again. In other words: Mercury is going cray again.

Actually it’s not, but from Earth, that’s what it looks like. From Earth, the planet Mercury (the closest planet to he Sun) looks like it’s moving backwards. You see, Mercury’s orbit around the Sun is a lot shorter than Earths, so it zooms past us and that’s when the Mercury Retrograde periods happen. From all this, Mercury creates enough turbulence and disruption when it retrogrades that it affects what we humans feel and our everyday lives on Earth – pretty interesting stuff!

Right now, we’re in the middle of one of Mercury’s periods of retrograde: September 15 – October 9, 2015.

You might have already experienced some of the effects caused by Mercury, but here’s more of what to expect from this retrograde!

Plans may take an unexpected turn
Plan for your plans to go pear-shaped. You might even find yourself planning for a few friends to get together for a few drinks only to find out that they’ll all cancel at the last minute. Don’t expect a lot of organized events to go as perfectly as you planned!

Be flexible with time
Because you never know how your plans are going to pan out during the Mercury Retrograde period, you should be flexible with time. Take extra care and take into consideration all the things that could be in your path: traffic, delayed flights, your car breaking down, losing your train ticket – anything could happen!

Be prepared for people in angry moods
Especially people who work in Transport, Marketing, Writing, Publishing, Sales and Public Relations. These are the industries that Mercury has control over. You may notice their moods changing, and not in a good way, so be extra super nice to people who work in these professions.

Don’t make big, final decisions
During this time, we often don’t gather all the facts and the info that we need, so basically Mercury makes us go a tiny bit whack with our decisions. Avoid making big long-term decisions to be on the safe side!

Have time for personal reflection
Experts say that the periods where Mercury is in Retrograde is the best time to stop, think and re-direct our energies in a more productive and positive way. We’re often rushing through life without giving everything our full attention, so during this retrograde, Mercury will help us to find closure to certain things in our lives.

4 Films To Watch This Fall

We’re well and truly into September and into the Fall season. It’s the season where you get all these autumnal feels and you just wanna get cozy.

There’s no better way to spend some lazy time than to be on your sofa, all rugged up and sipping on your favorite hot drink. Now add some good films to that mix and you’ve got one snug Fall season to look forward to.

If you’re someone who takes at least 2 hours trying to decide on what movie to watch, I’ve got a few suggestions that will surely narrow down your search. Fall is all about the days being unpredictable and nature becoming incredibly colorful, so you’ll find this sort of vibe with these 4 films.

What’s your go-to Fall film?

+++

Pride Based on an inspirational true story, this is one irresistible film that you can’t look past.

The Grand Budapest Hotel If you’re into some dark humor, this one’s for you. Set in a fictional Central European state, this Wes Anderson film will spark some creativity in you with his amazing use of unique colors throughout the film.

When Harry Met Sally Hilarious, classic and vibrant. Every film gal needs to watch this!

500 Days Of Summer A classic romantic comedy that literally everyone has to see at least once in their life. It even ends off with a cheeky little segway from Summer to Autumn…

4 Basic Beauty Lessons To Learn

These days, we get a lot of really useful beauty tips from really talented people. In an instant, we can learn how to line our lips properly, how to get our eyebrows on fleek, how to contour and highlight like a pro, and even a little special effects makeup. Bottom line is – we can learn some pretty cool beauty lessons these days.

But what about those really simple makeup lessons that we could all benefit from? We’ve got you. Here are some makeup lessons that we want to pass on from a sister to another! Enjoy and happy makeup-ing!

tues-beautylessons

Wear a Nude Lip that suits you, not what what suits other people.
We know just how much you want to go out and splurge on all the high end nude lip colors that your favorite celebrities wear, but this is something to avoid! Lipsticks are something you need to shop around for! Make sure you do a lot of swatches because everyone’s complexion is different, and different lip colors match different people. Before you go out and buy that YSL Nude color, head in-store and swatch it on your skin before you spend all that money. You might hate the product on your skin, but you might just fall in love – you never know.

Blend, then blend some more.
It’s in the girl bible to always blend when it comes to applying makeup. It’s still a little cringe-worthy when makeup is visibly un-blended and you just wanna help a girl out! When applying makeup onto that beautiful face of yours, whether it’s eyeshadow or foundation, blend in circular motions. You can also try out blending sponges if you’re feeling a little more creative.

A little lippy goes a long way.
Whether it’s your fiercest dark lip, your brightest pink or a some gloss, a little lip love makes you look a little more ‘put together’, especially on your off-duty days when makeup is just not necessary.

Don’t do your makeup in bad light.
If there was one beauty lesson that everybody should learn from the very first day makeup touches their face, it’s that they should never, ever do a full face of makeup in bad light. Bad light is basically anything too dark or even too bright. To achieve good light, sit by the window and try to let the natural light hit your face while you do your makeup. This helps you to get a flawlessly made up face every time.
