unconventional study tips

- buy yourself new stationery: i get so excited about using new pens that i don’t mind writing that essay i’ve been putting off for days

- use a playlist as a study timer: have a selection of instrumentals and songs with lyrics. take a break everytime a song with lyrics comes on and work during the instrumentals

- make your study space smell fresh: mint and lemon tend to be good options

- write down how much time you spend studying for a test and then the grade you got: then you can figure out how time you really need to spend to get a good grade. this will help you use your time more effectively

- spend your study breaks showering or exercising for about 30 mins: then come back fresh and quickly review what you have learned. this will help the information sink in

- don’t always study in comfy clothes or pyjamas: do your hair or makeup if you want too. this will put you in ‘get shit done’ mode

- record yourself explaining topics you’ve just studied: explaining/teaching topics helps you learn so much better, and you also have a little video to review before tests

As some of my followers have helpfully pointed out, lemon juice and baking soda CAN be harmful to your skin if used excessively or on the wrong skin type. Please be cautious using these ingredients. I personally have TRIED all of these masks myself, I’m never gonna post stuff like this without guaranteeing it works. I had no problems with either ingredient, my skin looked and felt fine, but that is not a guarantee that the same will pertain to you. Please be careful, test any dicey products or ingredients on your hand or arm and make sure that they are not abrasive before applying to your skin, and perhaps lessen the concentration of these ingredients when making these masks if you still choose to make them. Thank you to everyone for reblogging with the reminder that some ingredients can be harmful, I completely forgot to add that disclaimer. Stay safe hoes💖

Herbal Remedy for Sore Throats

As I am suffering from tonsillitis currently, I decided to make an herbal tea which helps with the pain. Below are the ingredients that I used.

Fresh catnip
Fresh lemon balm
Chamomile
Lavender

Stir a little honey in counter clockwise to rid yourself of discomfort.

The first sip of this infusion literally made the pain disappear instantly!

Sometimes simple is best. Oil-free potato wedges cooked with chilli, indian spices and served with guacamole (mashed avocado with red onion and lemon), fresh tomatoes and salad 😋😋😋

To Awaken Latent Magical Abilities

Requested by @skullkisser-jynx

Supplies Needed:

-          One boiling crucible

-          Source of fire

-          Wooden Spoon

-          Mortar & Pestle

-          Vial or other container for storing the potion

-          Wand (your hand will suffice if you lack a wand.)

-          Sieve – for straining the liquid.

Ingredients Needed:

-          One pint purified water

-          2 fresh lemons

-          Honey

-          Handful of fresh mint

-          An orange peel

-          1 small piece of fresh ginger root

-          Three coffee beans

-          One sage leaf

Most opportune time for conjuring: Monday during a Full Moon, although any time is the time for magic.

Prepare for brewing as you would for any magical working. Cleanse the space and yourself as you see fit. You may wish to illuminate the workspace by candlelight. If incense is desired, sweeten the air by burning a mixture of frankincense, cedar, dragon’s blood, or any other fragrance that pleases you.

INSTRUCTIONS

1.        Bring the pint of water to a boil, then reduce the heat and allow it to simmer.

2.       Squeeze the juice from the lemons and contribute to the water.

3.       Add 1 tablespoon of honey.

Bring to a boil again and stir clockwise, making sure all three are combined as one. Concentrate on your goal while stirring.

4.      Add the handful of fresh mint leaves, which should first be washed to remove any excess dirt.

5.       Crush the ginger root into a paste and add to the brew.

Bring the brew to a boil again. Continue to stir clockwise while concentrating on your goal.

6.       Contribute the orange peel.

7.       Add the 3 coffee beans.

8.       Add the sage leaf.

Allow the potion to boil for the space of thirteen minutes, stirring frequently while contemplating your magical abilities. After this time has passed, remove the potion from the fire. Point your wand at the brew (or the index finger of your hand of power) and project energy into the concoction. Allow this enchantment spell to be recited. (Fair warning: I really need to work on my rhymes. )

Power to charm, bewitch, and conjure

Locked within a deep, dark slumber

When to my lips, this brew is brought

My magic powers will then wake up

Project as much energy into the potion as you deem necessary. Afterwards, the liquid can be strained through the sieve and poured off into the vial or other container. It may then be consumed immediately before meditation, magical workings, or going to bed. Pay close attention to your dreams or any visions you might receive as they may very well point to which types of magic you ought to explore.

I think it goes without saying that you consume potions at your own risk. The ingredients given are noted as safe, however, everyone’s body reacts differently. Please note, the potion recipes are developed for effectiveness, not taste! (How many Witches on TV look forward to actually drinking a potion! 😉)

ANALYSIS:

This potion request was to awaken magical abilities. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve certainly had days where I’ve been groggy and felt like my magic was down. I wish I had written this simple potion ages ago! It could be a fun little way to jump start your magical abilities on one of those slower mornings.

As far as the ingredients go, everything selected is associated with awakening. Think about eating a lemon. Just thinking about it should make your mouth salivate and provoke a physical response. This is the same type of awareness we want to create for our magical abilities. The coffee beans are the main ingredient of a potion made my millions of people every day! No surprise why they’re included – they symbolize the awakening of those abilities. Ginger represents power, orange peel and honey represent the sweetness of life and the sage leaf represents wisdom.

🌶🌶🍞🥗Lunch today is a massive spicy “tuna” salad sarnie. Super tasty and made without oil!

Recipe for “tuna” spread (makes two very generous portions or four regular portions)

1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
¼ cup canned sweet corn
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper
1-3 tbsp cholula (the garlic one works best)
1 tsp maggi liquid seasoning ( or just salt)
2 tbsp fresh cut chives
2 tbsp fresh cut dill
Optional 30g of low fat hummus to bind.

Just used a potato masher to crush the chickpeas (you still want some texture so try not to go mad)
Then all you gotta do is add everything give it a mix and stick it on some bread ( I am the queen of complicated recipes 😂)

I added some red onion, spinach and sriracha to make it fancy 😜

How to Storyboard

After receiving a few requests to explain how I plan and organize stories before I write them, I present “How to Storyboard,” a template with tips on how to arrange a story idea, plan its characters and scenes, and get organized before the writing process begins.

Note: This template is in no way canon or a “must” among fiction writers; it’s simply a tool I built to keep myself focused on a story’s essentials and to stay on track of everything I need to maintain plot flow with multi-chaptered stories.

- Add the Lemon Balm and Marjoram into a Mortar and grind it down into a consistent mass, pour in the honey and muddle till the mixture is a consistent paste.

- You can apply this mixture straight onto your face or separate the liquid from the bits by pouring it into a saucer, all the goodness has been extracted out of the bits in the mortar so don’t worry about waste, the liquid is the important stuff !

What does this do?

Quick bonus tip, leaving some crushed marjoram leaves in a vial of olive oil for 24 hours will give you a quick to apply acne fighting lotion that tones the skin.

Vegans can swap out the honey for olive oil !

A little BLACK MAGIK LEMONADE. 🌚🍋I didn’t measure but you get the point.🤷🏽‍♀️ You can add more of less depending on your goals and fresh lemon juice is always best. 👍🏽My jar is 16oz & my water is Alkaline. Oh, And I definitely put my BLACK MAGIK LEMONADE in the freezer to get a cold chill to it.
Did you know Activated Charcoal is one of the most badass absorptive and adsorptive agents known, able to extract and neutralize thousands of times it’s own weight in gases, heavy metals, toxins, poisons and other chemicals that we don’t want loitering around inside us.

It’s a great agent for detox, cleansing and assisting the healing process of the body, preventing/helping hangovers, helping with intestinal issues/food poisoning/gases, and (for us), we feel like it makes us feel sharp and focused, and really helps when we feel sluggish.
