Simple Nail Art Tutorials – DIY

#1 Geometric Nail Art Tutorial

Here are some simple nail art ideas you can find all over the web but our ideas are the kind that all you fashion ladies will enjoy regardless of your budget. Simply take the colors you have and cut thin strips of scotch tape.  You can also use tinsel from your Christmas ornaments. Paint a color scheme on your nails first (it doesn’t have to be too fancy or too perfect since it will be painted over eventually), then -after it dries, either lay your scotch tape strips down in a pattern(s) or use some glue to glue the tinsel strips to your finger so they lay down flat. Then paint your main gloss color that will be the finish or the top layer of your nails as good as you can. In other words this top layer is your best paint job because it will be the layer everyone will see the most of.  After the top layer dries, you are ready to peel off the stips and viola!  DIY fashion nail art from DIYideas4home.com

Green Smoothie Recipe: So Good For You It’s Scary! – Food Matters – Mother Earth Living

Green Smoothie Recipe: So Good For You It’s Scary!

I bet you never thought you’d drink anything quite this green before, but you may think differently after you try this delicious and healthy drink recipe.

Green smoothies are becoming increasingly more popular as more and more people have discovered how easy they are to make and the health benefits they so easily provide. As an added bonus, if you are trying to get little ones to eat more fruits and vegetables, I can say from personal experience having spent nearly a whole hour at times negotiating with a 3 year old regarding a plate of said veggies that have never been touched, that I feel your pain. Enter the hero of this story, The Green Smoothie Recipe! My kids love them! They love the interesting color and because they truly do taste amazing, it isn’t hard to get them to drink them. For Halloween I was going to put little faces on the cups and tell the kids they were Green Monster Smoothies!

The recipe I tend to use is quick and easy and you can mix up the ingredients to your liking. I have found that if I keep most of the frozen ingredients on hand in the freezer it is much easier to whip one of these up whenever I want one. They are really great for kids and families who are on the go and need a quick breakfast or energizing snack.

Green Smoothie Recipe

• 1 cup mango (fresh or frozen)
• 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
• 2 cups of water
• 2 cups of fresh baby spinach
• 1 ripe banana
• 1 apple cut into pieces

Blend all ingredients together a little bit at a time until smooth. The resulting smoothie should be medium to bright green. Pour into your favorite cup or to-go cup and you are all set.

Green smoothies are much more than just delicious. They are loaded to the tippy top with things that are really good for you. They are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Since you are getting a good amount of greens and various fruits in the smoothie you are more likely to reach the daily recommendation of 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables your body needs on a daily basis. These smoothies have been found to increase energy, promote health, and deliver more radiant skin.

Don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit and try your own variations. I’ve replaced the water with soy milk, added a tbsp of protein powder, a few tablespoon’s of flax seed, or a 1/4 cup of organic oats. I’ve also added a tbsp here and there of sunflower seed butter or peanut butter for added protein. For a slightly sweeter smoothie a dash of honey can be used too. The possibilities are truly endless. Have fun and enjoy!
