    • Plan the next day
      There comes some sort of comfort when you know that things are planned ahead of time. When you’ve done something as simple as writing down a list of things to do the next day, or prepared things for the near future, you find that you don’t need to lose sleep over your organization skills.

 

    • Meditate
      It’s important that you feel relaxed before you even go to sleep. Meditation is great for the mind, body and spirit. It doesn’t have to be a lavish routine with fancy essential oils or burning incense, just find a meditation track somewhere on the Internet (YouTube is always your friend!), lay down and meditate.

 

    • Fall asleep listening to music
      Whatever you want, babe! Make a playlist of some of your favorite feel-good bangers or maybe a playlist of chill AF tunes. Put your headphones in and fall asleep to music that makes you feel gooooood!

Whether you’ve been grindin’ you’re whole life or you’re an intern newbie, there are just some things that you must keep with you at your desk.You never know when a beauty emergency will happen, so have these essentials on standby and you’ll never find yourself in a sticky beauty situation!

tues-beautyofficeOil blotting sheets
We just hate catching a glimpse of our reflection and being mortified at how much oil our face has built up! And why didn’t anyone tell us we were walking around like this? Blotting sheets are a quick and easy way you can avoid constantly oily skin.

Lipstick
You never know when you need to get a little extra glammed up in a little amount of time. Just to be the extra prepared one in the office, bring a bullet of one of your favorite lippy’s.

Lip Balm
You don’t have to put up with annoying cracked lips! Simply put on a scrub at home and a lip balm for work. Have one sat on your desk because you’ll be re-applying that good stuff all day!

Hand Cream
This is a definite life saver, especially in colder weather… or if you’re constantly shaking hands with important people. When your hands are feeling a little worse for wear, rub in some of your favorite hand cream and voila! You’ve got the softest and nicest smelling hands in the office.

Deodorant & Perfume
Speaking of smells, keep your deodorant and/or perfume in your handbag. When you’re experiencing a B.O. emergency, quickly pop to the bathroom and spritz on your favorite scent. Too easy!

THAT BEAUTY HACK LIFE

A lot of us work around a busy schedule. We work hard until we’re the ultimate girl boss.

Naturally, we find ourselves without much spare time on our hands but at the same time, we all want to look fab. These days, hacks and beauty secrets can save your life! So whether you’re a busy werkin’ girl or chilled as shit, you’re gonna want to try these beauty hacks now!

Out of Dry Shampoo? Put some Baby Powder in your hair to reduce the look of greasy hair.
Dry Shampoo alone is a magical thing to ever exist. Just spray some of that goodness into your “I’m too lazy to wash my hair” hair and people will never know about your oily hair! BUT if you’re out of Dry Shampoo, a bit of baby powder does the same job – just be sure to really work it in.

Add a few drops of Nail Polish remover to your Nail Polish’s that are drying out.
Make the most of your favorite Nail Polish. When it’s drying out, add 3-4 drops of Nail Polish remover, shake, and you’re good to go!

Add some Lemon Juice to your hair to lighten it up!
Picture yourself on a Summer’s day. Before your day gets hella busy sitting by the pool, apply some natural lemon juice to your hair and see it get gradually lighter over the Summer! Exposing it to the sun will give you an even better result!

For softer and healthier hair, shampoo the roots only and use conditioner on the bottom half of your hair.
Blake Lively swears by this one. Shampoo helps your hair to become less oily, and the conditioner helps your ends to stay hydrated and just plain LUSH.

After you’ve made a cup of Green Tea, use the used tea bag for under your eyes to get rid of dark circles.
Who doesn’t love a good cup of Green Tea? There’s even more reasons to love it because when you’re done with the Green Tea Bag, you can pop it under your eyes for a few minutes everyday and you’ll see those dark circles disappear!

After you wash your hair, tip your head upside-down and brush your hair forward for faster growth of hair.
This motion isn’t just plain magic unfortunately. By brushing your hair this particular way, you’re bringing forward the oils that help your hair to grow faster. You’ll have to be patient with this one – you won’t have Rapunzel’s hair overnight.

Things you shouldn’t do when they’re clearly not into you

Here at Gold Soul, we’re all about them golden and positive vibez.

Don’t hang on to negative people and their negative energy. You don’t need that shit and you deserve better! Love and relationships can always be a shitty thing, especially when the feelings aren’t mutual. But sometimes, you just gotta forget about people who don’t matter, leave them behind and keep being a bad bitch.

thurs-things

1. Avoid being a clingy texter

We never appreciate anyone over-texting us, so if you’re going to send “We should talk” or “Let’s hang out soon” messages every day, they’re probably not going to be interested. Don’t waste your time… or your money.

2. Don’t stalk them on Social Media

We’re all guilty of doing it sometime in our lives. But, if you’re in a situation where you keep running back to this same poisonous person, it’s probably best that you stay far away from their Facebook and especially far away from photos that they’ve been tagged. Yes, they’re smiling and laughing with what looks like a new love interest. You deserve that too…. just not with that person.

3. It’s not a good idea to get drunk and talk to them

If you’re prone to blurting out the truth when you’ve had one too many, you best put your smart cap on before you get your drink on. We all do dumb things when we’re drunk so try not to make a fool of yourself.

4. Don’t assume you’re the only person in their life

They have friends too, and for the most part they’ll be of both genders. Yep, your crush has friends who are male and female. Like any other person, they’ll hang out with their friends, so don’t assume they’ll always work around your schedule.

5. Don’t settle for a half-assed relationship

If this person is obviously not interested, then it’s best that you move on. Best case scenario: they go out with you a few times out of pity or to shut you up. It’s the sad truth. You don’t deserve that half-assed relationship with some dickhead who doesn’t care at all for you.

4 Steps Closer To Being A Morning Person

As Beyoncé says “I woke up like ‘dis”

Yep, we wake up as we are and most of the time that’s like a very annoyed, half-human, half-zombie… creature. Basically, mornings just aren’t everyone’s forte. The good news is: that can change with a few alterations to our before and after sleep rituals. Here’s a few tips!

1. Go to bed before 12am

If you’re the type of person who has a habit of heading to bed at 3am, this might be hard to hear. One of the main reasons why people hate mornings is that they’re hella tired from the night before. Whether you spent the night talking to some guy or scrolling through 7 different online stores, of course you’re going to be tired if you only got 4 hours of sleep. For those nights when you don’t have to be up late, try getting your beauty sleep before midnight and you’ll wake surprisingly refreshed the next morning.

2. Ditch the late night Instagram check ups

Let’s all be honest – we all love to tuck ourselves up into bed and get comfortable with our phones in hand, right? We’re all guilty of it but it really is time to just not worry about social media as soon as we get comfortable in bed. Just rest your eyes and you’ll wake up the next morning ready to spend the rest of the day looking at your phone screen!

3. Morning stretches

Ahh, it’s the best thing about waking up – stretching your body after a nights sleep. Why not carry out those good feelings and roll out a yoga mat? You don’t need to have the flexibility of a contortionist, just look up some easy yoga moves and stretch out your body!

4. Look forward to Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of your day and you CAN’T miss it! It kicks off your day, so create a meal that gets you excited and energized for the entire day! A berry smoothie with fresh berries on top? Yes please. Pancakes on pancakes on pancakes? Go for it! Croissants smothered in Nutella? Why. The. Eff. Not?

4 Things I Wish I Knew About Prom

We would all go back to our Prom night if we could, whether it was to change something that happened or if we just wanted to re-live it.

For those who are yet to experience a ‘Prom night’ – you’re in for an exciting ride. You’ll have thoughts cross your mind that you’d never think you would like ‘Is $100 a reasonable price for someone to do my makeup for Prom?’ (it isn’t btw), ‘Why can I never find a cute dress when I actually need to find a cute dress?!’ and the notorious ‘Where should I get a fake tan?’, ‘When should I get the fake tan?’ and ‘Should I actually fake tan????’

gsprom

CHERISH THE MOMENT
These are some of the best times that you’ll experience in high school. You’ll be looking back in 10 or 20 years and you’ll want to be able to say “Wasn’t Prom just the best time ever?” Events like these only come around once and they’re made for your enjoyment, so have some fun with your main bae’s!
SHOP ONLINE WITH CAUTION
Let’s be real here. Online shopping is the bomb. It’s available to you 24/7 and when it arrives at your doorstep, it’s like getting a gift from yourself – what’s not to love? But before you hit the checkout, it’s important to know what you’re buying, where you’re buying from and who you’re buying from because the last thing you want is to be scammed right before something as important as Prom!
DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING
Leave all the shame behind and let loose! Like I said, Prom isn’t going to come around again, so make the most of your time especially on the dance floor – a place where it’s as if barriers are broken down and everyone is friends with everyone. Grab your entourage and get down!
COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER
Don’t see Prom as a competition, but see it as one big party. Memories will be made at Prom, so to get the good vibes flowing, be sure to compliment as many guys and gals as possible. You never know how much you’ll be making their night just that little bit better.
