SpaceX Launches Falcon Heavy – World’s Most Powerful Rocket


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today was a great day for me because I was able to witness the launch of the most powerful rocket at SpaceX, a company founded and run by billionaire Elon Musk. The rocket,  named Falcon Heavy did not carry any people but carried Musk’s red Tesla. The rocket already signed up to carry three hefty telecommunications satellites into orbit. The Air Force also plans to use a Falcon Heavy to launch a payload for weather forecasting satellites, later this year. Per SpaceX, in early 2017 two space tourists put down a deposit to ride on a Falcon Heavy for a trip around the moon.

My lovely readers, it’s an exciting day for me because it’s a major step towards more cheaper and frequent flights, making it easier for government and private companies to send massive projects to space. SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy is estimated to cost $90m per launch; Nasa’s planned SLS rocket, a comparable system, is expected to cost about $1bn per flight. This launch reminded of the 2001 Mars Odyssey space mission to the Mars. Missions like today get a whole new generation of kids getting excited about space.

What did you think about the SpaceX mission? Please comment below. I really like to hear your feedback.

Oh Beach, I Miss Thee!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. It has been so cold outside the past couple of day. I looked onto my desk and saw a layer of ice. The cold forced me to daydream about the beautiful beach that I love going to during the summer.

IMG_2918

“Oh the beach, how much I miss you at this time. I miss your warm sands playing with my feet and the waves dancing and singing with sands. One thing I like the miss about right now is the peace and calmness that I find deep in my heart looking at your vast horizon. You treat my mind and my soul. As Emilia Wickstead said, ‘To escape and sit quietly on the beach – that’s my idea of paradise.'”

Dermalogica Ultra Calming Duo VoxBox


 

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today I want to talk to about the Dermatologica Ultra Calming Duo VoxBox that I have that I have just received from Influenster free for my honest and unbiased review.

G_20180203_gif

The VoxBox contains  Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water Gel and  Dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster.

 

Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water Gel: The Water Gel is cool and soothing, and it replenishes dry, sensitive skin. The gel is full of Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology that quenches skin upon application to deliver long-lasting moisture and hydration deep into the skin’s layers. I have Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin in order to combat dryness and sensitivity while defending against environmental aggressors to leave skin comfortable around the clock. The Gel is paraben free and cruelty-free.

 

Dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster:  The defense booster nourishes, soothes, and moisturizes skin to restore balance to the sensitive skin. It also relieves dryness and provides a barrier against future irritation. The oil contains oil oat that helps combat sensitivity and support healthy-looking skin.

G_20180204_gif

Verdict: Dear reader, last week I told how Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant Exfoliant broke me out. However, these two Ultra Calming Duo from Dermalogica are whole different stories. The gel is so soothing and make makes my skin extra soft. When I wash my face and put this on my face, my skin instantly feels hydrated and moisturized. As for the booster oil, I added few drops to the moisturizer before applying it and it a huge difference in my skin without making it look oily. Overall, I would definitely recommend these duos to my everyone.
