Do u remember in art class doing lino cutting? I loved it! Art class was always such a great class for me. Even though i am not particularly 'arty' although i still wish to this day i was able to just draw amazing pictures or paint something inspiring, i definitely have creative bones, just not in the i can draw a pretty picture kind of way! But i want to try new creative things this year and after having a little read through the very delicious blog Oh So Beautiful Paper i stumbled upon a tutorial about block printing! How Much fun does it look?!?!?!

  10. 10 Weight Loss Tips

    These weight loss tips will be most effective for those who gained few additional kilos after an improper diet plan.

    1. All dieticians advise to take as many fruits and vegetable as you can. They contain all vitamins, antioxidants and fibers which your body needs. Eating a lot of greens is the most natural and easy way to get rid of some fat and to make your lifestyle healthier.

    2. You can eat fresh fruits like a general meal but it will be even better if you will take them between mealtimes. It helps to regulate sugar level and reduce your craving to eat something.

    3. Fresh vegetables must be in your each lunch and dinner. Also, do not mix proteins (meat, beans) with starch (potato, pasta) in on meal.

    4. Meat must be less that 4 to 5 servings a week. When we say meat, we also mean fish and poultry. There are a lot of very tasty vegetarian dishes too!

    5. Start gradually to replace meat with legumes. It can be beans, lentils, peas. Plant protein is very healthy way to change your nutrition for good.

    6. Drinking liquids while eating is the worst habit ever! If you feel very thirsty drink something (better just plain water) after 10 minutes.

    7. Your daily consumption of calories must be well-balanced. It means that you cannot reduce your meal in a big level. Do everything gradually and also keep in mind that it’s better to have 5 or 6 small light meals throughout the day that to have 3 big meal a day and to starve between them.

    8. There are some “hidden” calories that can enormously add up our weight when we are not even aware of it. They are pop, cream, juices with sugar or sugar in our tea or coffee. Try to avoid them, using instead at least 8 glasses of water to balance hydration of our body.

    9. Of course, you must exercise in regular basis! Even 30 minutes a day is enough to feel better and give your body nice training.

    10. Alcohol must be cut because it is very rich in calories which are very “light” in becoming additional fat. Follow these weight loss tips and be happy!
