// No. Bad. Days ☀️
Got health. Loved ones. Sun’s shining. Sheeeit, what mo does one need...
I was just saying to someone that if you focus on your problems, your problems will be all you see. But if you count your blessings, you may just find yourself counting higher that you thought you would. “First world problems”, that is one of the most hideous sayings. 🤮 You realize that THIRD WORLD PROBLEMS are really, really major and serious. Let’s stop saying stupid shit like “first world problems’, count yer blessings, be mindful of the energy you bring to others’ spaces, spread kindness and less shade...or just stay home 😬
Gratitude is the attitude ♥️
Have no idea where that rant came from. I thought I was just posting a stogie/no bad days thang. Must be all the energy comin my way from silly humans. Tis Pisces season, after all 🤦🏻♀️ .
The Tanning Studio took over Lush last night! We had a blast with the Coquitlam Centre staff making bath bombs, doing masks, and of course shopping! Thank you so much @lushcosmetics for a wonderful evening!
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin produced in the skin when exposed to sunlight ☀️ Its active form functions as a steroid hormone in the body. Many people may not get enough sunshine, which may result in low or deficient levels of vitamin D 😪 Increasing your vitamin D stores may support healthy balance of hormones and support healthy muscles and overall health. KAL's Vitamin D3 ActivGels contain 1000 IU.
This I know to be true , on a sunny day I would oil my scalp and hair and make sure I spend the day outside , the growth is amazing 💆🏽♀️💜💛 Repost from @rencostudios 😍😍😍💛funfact💜 Posted @withregram • @rencostudios My hair 🌺 If you regularly wear weaves and wigs, when is the last time your scalp received any sunlight?
If you really think about that question, you may honestly realize that it may have been months or years. Just like we give our scalp water and fresh air, remember to give it sunlight. Even if you just take your wig off and sit in front of a sunny window for a few minutes a day/week, it can be beneficial for hair growth. You can naturally increase your Vitamin D levels too. ☀️
I’m currently resetting my hair with these plaits and Bantu knots so that I can stretch out the slight puffiness from the humidity. Then I’ll go back into my bun. -

Did you know that much of the world is deficient in Vitamin D? People living in northern climates are especially susceptible to Vitamin D deficiency due to lack of sun exposure.
Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with many chronic diseases such as Cancer, cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, immune system diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders and others.
Vitamin D3 and K2 are best friends. They work synergistically together to ensure that calcium is absorbed easily and deposited in the right place. K2 (MK-7) activates the protein, osteocalcin, which integrates calcium into bone. As a cofactor, vitamin K2 activates an important protein called matrix GLA. This important protein prevents vascular calcification. That is, it keeps calcium from depositing in soft tissues, organs and blood vessels. Without D3 and K2, calcium cannot do its job effectively.
I believe D3/K2 is one of the most important supplements for good health. Here is a link to the kind I just purchased on Amazon.

Fühlst du dich zur Zeit schlapp oder bist krank?
Ich habe das Gefühl, im Februar werden alle krank. Das ist jedes Jahr so!
Tatsächlich sind es im Februar 6% aller Beschäftigten und im Juli nur 4%. (Quelle: Dachverband der Betriebskrankenkassen)
Und das liegt unter anderem daran, dass die Vitaminspeicher allmählich leer sind. Vitamin D ist zum Beispiel ein Hormon, das sowohl für die Funktion von Muskeln und Erhalt von Knochen zuständig ist als auch Depressionen lindern kann, wenn ein Mangel besteht und das ist bei mehr als 50% der Deutschen der Fall 😱
Lass dich am besten mal vom Arzt durchchecken!
Wir nehmen Vitamin D nämlich durch die Sonne auf und die fehlt im Winter ❄️
Da es fettlöslich ist, sollte man vorher aber besser mit dem Arzt sprechen, da es auch überdosiert werden kann 💊
Ich nehme zum Beispiel die Hair Vitamins von @womensbest , 2 Gummiiis am Tag decken die Hälfte des Bedarfs. Den Rest schaffe ich durch meine Ernährung : Fetter Fisch hat hier am meisten (ca 25qg/100g) und Käse round about 2qg - man kann auch auf vegane Produkte wie Pilze und Avokados setzen, aber leider ist der Gehalt hier sehr gering. Ansonsten empfehle ich Lebertran: 330 qg sind hier drin 😱 6g davon am Tag und du bist save ❤️
Denn 20 qg solltest du schon am Tag zu dir führen und ich sage dir: Du fühlst dich besser ✨🌼✨
Ah und man sollte auf die Kombi mit Vitamin Vitamin K2 achten, da Vitamin K2 die Proteine Osteocalcin und MGP aktiviert und diese sorgen für den Transport und die Einlagerung von Calcium aus dem Blut in die Knochen 🦴 #womensbest#vitamind

HAPPY [☀️] DAY! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of this sunshine has me dreaming of summer 🌞 So today, I encourage everyone to GET OUTSIDE!!! It’s not often we have these bright, sunny days during the usual dark winter months 😎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A daily dose of sunshine provides MANY benefits, such as: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ increased serotonin + endorphin release ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ increased vitamin D production ⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ improved mood, calmness + focus ⠀⠀⠀
☀️ reduced anxiety + stress ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ regulated circadian rhythm ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ enhanced immunity ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Go for a run, hike, walk or whatever gets you outside + moving! Summer may still be a few months away, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then to enjoy the sun! 💛
So basically up until last week I'd been feeling so up and down (mostly down) ever since Xmas. I didn't really know what to do about it.
I've literally never taken a Vitamin D supplement in my life, but I know a lot of people suffer from SAD/Seasonal Affective Disorder this time of year so I thought, right, I might as well try it, could fix my problem.
Just over a week ago I bought a Vit D spray (3000 micrograms), recommended by @notionsontour and have used it every day since. Honestly, it has made SUCH a difference. I'm feeling more energised and positive and way less gloomy. I'm getting up earlier, have more energy for exercise and react so much better to situations that probably would have had me in tears a couple of weeks ago. I just feel better overall.
Obviously it doesn't just magically fix everything, but it certainly helped me with my SAD. Highly recommend! The one I have is a tiny bottle which fits in my pocket/handbag. Was only ~€5 too, think there was an offer on. Absolutely love it.
Oh and don't forget, I'm an actual pharmacist, not just some unqualified random person on the Internet giving out health advice hahaha.
When you think you have control over everything you’ve got going on, think again.
When you feel what you have has value and you feel vulnerable, you try to secure it all.
When you feel so stressed out trying to “do it all” and nothing is working.
You’re doing it on Your time. Not His time. That’s why.
The last person/persons/thing may have taken advantage of your time.
But that doesn’t mean you make everybody else pay for the mistake of that one thing and securing yourself from being the blessing that you have the potential to be.
Let it go. And let it all come to you. As soon as you stop controlling, life’s going to flourish in more ways than you could ever imagine.

Holding down the winter body 💪🏽 for spring in one month, and finally letting the sun shine on my Casper 👻 body.
Fun fact about me: I used to be a tanning bed queen 👑 😬 🙊. I went to the tanning bed 5 days a week!! 😥
Did you know, one indoor tanning session can increase your risk of melanoma by 20 percent. 😳
Florida native here, and younger me could not be bothered with going outside to lay in the sun all day... 🙄 I know, what a brat 😝
I wasn’t really concerned with skin cancer then, I only wanted to be tan, and also have that cute (it’s not cute) sticker tan line tat. My ladies know what I’m talking about with the playboy bunny 🐰 , sun ☀️ , and heart ♥️ outline to see how tan you were getting 😂. What were we thinking? 🤦🏻♀️ #socool
After I got my esthetician license in college, I realized how important your skin is. I didn’t want to get skin cancer, look old and leathered, have spots or freckles cover me, and so I started babying my skin. 🍼
When I’m in the sun now, I’ll lather up in sunscreen, put on clothes after an hour, bring a big hat for shade, and keep my #costas close because the last thing I need is a big black mole popping up and ruining my day. 😱
However, I will mention how important it is in getting the D daily... that vitamin D ☀️ 😂. An essential nutrient for us all in our health, but let’s get that without risk of skin cancer. 😚
If you want to be tan do self tanners, they’ve come a long way! If you insist on laying out, wear spf 40 and above... and maybe pray 😆 🙏 plus go to the dermatologist regularly. 👩🏽⚕️
Wear your sunscreen and have a happy Friday hunniesssss 💗
