I've never done this before but I'm going to give it ago. I know this is a bit late but hey late is better than never right, so this is a 3 tarot card spread for this year. I think I might make this a monthly thing, I'm not too sure yet but anyway...

1- Past


Last year you felt that you had to be the best, had to have the latest thing and had to keep on top of everything, and as much fun as that was part of you didn't really feel comfortable. This card is all about fighting for things, whether in the last year you have been going through some emotional stuff or heartbreak or even health wise this card is saying your a fighter you don't give up and all the fighting is going to pay off in the year ahead, as everything that happened last year in your life happened for a reason. good things are coming.

2- Present


Being kind to people this year in places that won't even feel important will pay off, being yourself you will find you will get further in what it is you are aiming for whether it's in a job interview new school or just trying to meet people in the career areas you like. Being considerate this year is also what's going to help you, be friendly and your lovely bubbly self and you will be surprised where it will lead you, the most unexpected opportunities happen when you least expect it and you don't want to miss is because you chose not to talk to anyone.

3- Future

Sadness upside down.

An upside down card means the opposite, this is a year of joy and happiness and harmony, last year you had a hard year or maybe you didn't feel motivated but this year, when the world is on your side maybe you will find answers and inspiration, things are looking up this year, have fun and enjoy the happiness, whether this is going to be brought with making a life changing decision or getting a new job but happiness is coming your way, just be patient.

Egyptian make up facts

Egyptians were my favorite historic era when I was younger, I was so addicted to them that I even learned how to write and read Hieroglyphics. For me, I loved how ahead of time they were, there are so many historical eras after them that didn't have the technics or the tools they used. They were the closest to us ever in history with medical and skin care they held. I just think in any element to do with the Egyptians there is so much to learn. Any bit of that era there is pages and pages of facts to learn. For me, I'm going to do a few facts about their makeup and health care that I think were the most interesting.


 Egyptians believed that makeup was a way of getting the gods protection. The cosmetics they used were so ahead of time that is unbelievable. They had small pots of black eyeliner that even had lids. Eyeshadow plates which had kohl and other earth ingredients crushed also jars with creams and small pots full of rouge. This was all proven when a tomb was found containing all these well-preserved makeup in.


They used to put small cones on their heads, Which would be quite greasy and mucky, but in the sunlight, as It got hotter it would start to melt on their wigs, inside the cone was perfume which would make the wig smell nice all day. It was basically like their deodorant as under their wigs would start to smell.


 There are lots of reasons to believe why the Egyptians wore eyeliner but some of them are, that it was too warn off evil that the gods couldn't protect them from, it also made quite a good sun tan lotion, it blocked the sun from burning their eyelids, and face as they would make face powder using white chalk. Eyeliner was made out of kohl and chlorine and lead suffice, some people would put grease in it to make it runnier. Not only did it protect their eyes from sunlight but it also kept the flies away. With the kohl eyeliner, they would put it in a jar with a bit of grease or sometimes spit. Then stir it together before using it as I guess it must dry out like our gel pot eyeliners do. It came with a dish that was either a metal or wood and an ivory brush or a sharp bit of wood to apply it with, would lay on the dish.


Creams that would be used on their faces was actually quite similar to our more organic creams, they used whipped eggs and olive oil and other animal fat, sea salt and fruit justices to make it smell nice, also in the mix would be plants. Which as they new and we now different plants can benefit your skin in different ways.
