You Won't Believe These Gift Wrapping Skills.
So, without fail, the holiday season always reminds me how absolutely horrible I am at wrapping gifts. I try, every year, to wrap them thoughtfully, with brand new wrapping paper boasting Christmas trees or stars or tiny penguins. However, it all ends up crumpled up into large balls of frustration around my living room, so whatever gift-wrapping inspiration you were hoping to get from me is just not going to happen any time soon. Not this millennium. However, check out the packaging handiwork of Sheila, a 27-year-old graphic designer from the San Francisco Bay who put the rest of us to some serious gift wrapping shame. Swipe left to each of these presents to see how they were wrapped - and prepare to be amazed. With a handy Xacto and some graphic design know-how, she transformed this small set of Gundams into a huge stick of butter. And what could she be doing with this copy of 'Falling Up'? Wrapping it up like a sirloin steak, of course. She actually designed her own fake butcher shop labels to pull this one off. I like this one because it (somewhat morbidly) stuck with the ocean theme. Okay, maybe it's just me, but I'd much rather have the giant candy bar. And the doughnuts. I mean, fairies are great, but check out all those sprinkles! It's crazy how realistic this sushi looks - even in photographs! And, last but not least, one man's Nintendo cartridge-inspired flask is another man's, uh... cheese? So what did you guys think? Could you pull this wrapping job off, or do you have a better, more signature strategy of your own?
How to Make Sure Your Neck Never Gives Away Your Age
Your skin care routine is flawless, and your face has never looked more vibrant and glowing. But then you look down to see it - your neck. Your neck, which is frequently affected by wrinkles, bands, and sagging, is one of the first and most visible parts of the body to show signs of ageing. Even using your regular skin care routine on the neck does not always appear to help with these issues. So, what are the best methods for combating and smoothing these age-related fine lines? Surprisingly, the face and the neck are linked; however, the ageing of the neck is slightly different. There are several reasons for this, one of which is that the skin on the neck is extremely thin. It is vulnerable to sun damage. But what distinguishes the neck is that it moves; the neck is a joint, just like your elbow or knee. And we develop creases over our joints over time. Normal skin ageing causes collagen and elastic tissue to break down, which accounts for neck wrinkles and sagging. This typically manifests itself around the mid-20s, and it is exacerbated in those who have had increased exposure to sunlight and pollutants such as cigarette smoke. These creases and bands on the neck have gotten worse in recent decades as a result of a condition known as "tech neck," which is caused by looking down at electronic devices for long periods of time. Neck bands become worse with neck movement, such as moving the neck up and down. They also get deeper when you hold your neck in a downward position while browsing on your phone or working on your laptop. Is there a way to prevent neck ageing? The best solution is to prevent sagging and wrinkles from forming in the first place. It is always easier to prevent damage than it is to repair or rejuvenate it. Sunscreen This product is your best line of defence against wrinkles and other signs of ageing. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one with an SPF of 30 or higher. Sun damage accelerates the appearance of ageing on all parts of the body. Do you already apply sunscreen to your face? Apply the same skin care routine that you use on your face to your neck. Antioxidants Another method of prevention is to use topical treatments and creams containing antioxidants. Ingredients such as vitamin C and E, can help reverse the effects of sunlight and pollution. They also stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and improve skin elasticity. Retinols Retinols are also beneficial in combating the signs of ageing. If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about the strength, choose a cream that contains Retinyl Palmitate, a ProRetinol that is mild enough for most people. When it comes to stimulating collagen, retinoid creams are an excellent choice. Diet What you eat can also have an impact on how our skin looks. A diet high in antioxidants and low in sugar helps to prevent collagen damage. Weight fluctuation has a significant impact on your neck. If you have a history of yo-yo dieting, this will contribute to neck laxity. The most effective neck wrinkle treatments If you've already developed these unsightly wrinkles and sagging, it may be time to seek treatment. Here are some examples of dermatologist led options... HIFU Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound, penetrates deeper into the skin's layers than creams, stimulating collagen at the deeper layers and preventing sagging neck. Lasers Non-ablative fractionated resurfacing lasers, such as Clear and Brilliant or Fraxel, can help improve your skin's texture. MNRF All radiofrequency microneedling devices stimulate collagen and elastic tissue, which aids in the treatment of horizontal neck bands. If you choose this procedure, keep in mind that it will necessitate multiple treatments. Injectables Another option for filling neck bands and horizontal lines is injectables. Dermal fillers do not treat muscle, but they can help to smooth out fine lines and plump up the skin on the neck, giving it a more youthful appearance. Botox is preferable for bands and neck cords because it softens their appearance by relaxing the muscle.
The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
5 Effective Ways to Get Rid of Acne Scars
Acne scars are the last thing you want, after the healing of inflamed acne on your skin. The scars are not only painful, but also embarrassing. Rest assured, these scars do not have to be a permanent reminder of your agony, as getting rid of acne scars is now possible. 1. Topical AHAs If the acne scars are moderate or need a quick, effective solution, using skincare products with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) can be beneficial. The acid works to exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface by dissolving the ‘glue’ that binds each cell. It stimulates the skin to heal and produce new skin cells that slowly smoothen and fade away spots and acne scars. The ingredient is widely available in skincare products such as cleanser, toner, and moisturizer and generally, the strength of AHA in these products is low for daily use. If you need a higher strength of AHA, you might need a prescription from your dermatologist. 2. Microneedling This method has gained popularity due to the amount of improvement that it can give you. At the essence, this method uses tiny needles that create minute punctures in the skin. It stimulates the skin to produce new cells, collagen, and fibroblasts for the healing process. Which in turn results in youthful skin, and this includes healing acne scars as well. Professional-grade microneedling with PRP is available with dermatologists for most effective results. 3. Chemical Peels Chemical peels that use a high concentration of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) are effective in ice pick scars and other forms of severe scarring. The particular acid can heal moderate-to-severe acne scarring. As high as 70 percent may be used with temporary side effects such as increased skin sensitivity, redness, and mild flaking. 4. Laser treatment Utilizing high energy emitted from lasers to resurface the skin has proven to be effective in treating pigmentation, bumps, uneven skin texture, and of course, acne scars. Without using any chemicals or skincare products, lasers are used on the affected area to trigger skin healing. It produces new skin cells and collagen fibres to speed up skin healing, reducing the appearance and severity of acne scars. 5. Corticosteroid injection This type of injection helps reduce the appearance of a specific acne scar known as keloid scars, a common issue among cystic acne. These types of acne scars have discolouration and raised surface that generally previous methods listed won’t work. The injections are needed once a month until the scar has healed. It is likely that your dermatologist may recommend a combination of treatments to speed up skin healing. It ensures the acne scars fade away for good. You can discuss with with them to find the ones that are suitable for you.

Then, the beard is thrown together with fluffy sushi rice and some seaweed to create Santa's trademark jolly smile. Raspberry juice-stained rice is used to add color to his skin. (Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit more like Kraang from 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' right now?) Put it all together, and what do you get? Et voila! The Santa sushi roll is complete!
