Lilac Lavender Nails For Summer 2018

💜Happy Weekend , you guys! We’ve been so busy , taking product pictures and sketching away art orders, we just had no time to breathe easy! Summer is everywhere! Talking about where we at though 🙂 Now, our camera picked up the color little differently and I just couldn’t bring the nailpolish color in the pictures to the exact color I am seeing on my nails. You all know how we hate editing anything, we just don’t like exaggerating beauty and distorting colors. What the camera picks up goes in here! But this time, I will leave it to you , you can call it Lavender or Lilac or Mauve.

April Yellow

April was not a good month. It is sick to even think what my sis and I have to put up with every single day. But we cannot step back and watch everything going down in shambles! We cannot let anyone stop us, our blog life and artworks mean everything to us. We never dream of anything but art and writing. There has to be a way, and we are trying to figure it out. Putting up with abuses can never be the answer, even if it comes from your own family members. Just like the sun, these yellow blooming flowers caught my eye today, blooming vibrant up high. We are not allowed to take photos or videos at home. I am not sure how long we can stay calm, because as bloggers we are facing such restrictions that are harmful for our career and our well being! We are hoping for miracles, and Lord knows we are waiting for justice. Because in these cases you can never raise voice or go to someone who can fight for you. People are always gender biased in my family and locality. So, things are sour right now and we can’t help it.

Here’s to hope ❤

We started our monthly color project in January. Check out other color photographs dedicated to each month here , here, and here .

Also check out our swatch videos below that we posted recently ❤ please give a thumbs up if you like beauty hauls and reviews ❤ We are very new to YouTube and would love to see people supporting us 🙂

Eating Consciously For A Healthy Lifestyle

Hello, weekend!

With so much going on right now I can barely think of food. Livvy and I are those people who do not worship food. Don’t get us wrong, we love making food, we love the nutrition stuff, we love photographing foods, we hashtag foodstagram all the time yo! Livvy is making egg curry right now as I type this out! But we are not hogging food by the minute. We eat only when necessary. And when we have a sloppy phase in life we usually just forget the food and get down to either sulking or solving mode. I just can’t gulp down food when I am sad. I know some people will still say food is at no fault and there is no reason to be away from food just because you feel sad, but it doesn’t work for us that way. It is a health hazard recipe by the way, to be feeling sad and then making the body feel foodless. I know, my brain and heart works that way, I have tried eating when I am sad, I feel more bad and mechanical. So I stay away from food until I am back to normal and happy. We know it is weird but everyone’s got their mechanisms, right?

Talking about food, in general, is tough. We will be as generic as possible here and will keep it short. We don’t want your weekend to have just another lengthy food post. So, honestly we all love food, we all eat various food categories. But if you’ve been following us for a while or if you know us personally you know that we do not like unhealthy habits. First up, you gotta let go of smoke and booze. We are teetotaler and no matter how much you say you drink occasionally or you are not a chain smoker, darling, you are disillusioned! Answer yourself, are you concerned about what you wear? Do you take care when choosing what to put on as your clothing? Yes, you do! Then why don’t you take care about what goes inside your stomach? The more you fill up your tummy with the bad stuff, the more it will be difficult for you take in the good stuff.  Yoga and exercises won’t help if you don’t rehab yourself! It is a matter of personal choice, if you think booze is everything, go ahead. Sooner or later you will have to let go of it. With age, you lose the adaptability,  your body won’t be back to good health if you think switching to vegan food will help after years of smoking or drinking. Your body gets so used to the harmful agents that it doesn’t recognize the food nutrients anymore. This kind of self abuse can’t go on. Hoping for a great life while indulging in bad habits just won’t cut!

Street foods. We won’t say you need to chuck that out completely. Nope. We love street junk food. There are serious situations when we are super hungry and have no “nutritious” food in our pockets. You can officially consider eating at at a roadside shack. But making it a daily routine will give you a leaky gut. No kidding! If you are a stickler for healthy foods and eat junk occasionally, you are spared! Come on, if you thrive on fruits all the time, like us, a little plate of noodles won’t hurt. But avoiding oil and too much of sugar will make your life easy.

The purpose of food is to fill you up and make you feel light even when you are full. Make your kids have the fruits and veggies so that they don’t have to worry about a thing when they get older. But then again, let them choose the fruits they want, keep a note on the food allergies, and eat fresh.

Happy fresh foodie weekend, y’all!!

Summer Drink | Apple Banana Smoothie

We’ve been getting a lot of emails asking us if we use some fancy gadget or apply heavy edits, because lately we’ve been posting real good photographs (we agree the photos look great, and that’s not because of the gadgets or edits)

Hello, world! Welcome to our blog, this is our space for everything ranging from fashion to food, and today we’ll be sharing another recipe right from our breakfast table to yours. We’ll get to it in a moment but before that let me clarify few things. My sister and I do not use fancy cameras, we have one digicam and one phone, no DSLR or SLR, and absolutely no heavy editing. If you look at our pictures you will notice that we only add the watermark and our insta url, and may be decrease the brightness in few pictures. We love taking pictures during different times of the day, so playing with daylight is our thing! Apart from that, my sis and I take photos from different angles, throw in some florals, and keep it as simple as possible. We believe photographs talk more when you have minimal edits or better, no edits at all.

Now, let us jump into this smoothie recipe , might not be the yummiest/sweetest but you know all healthy things don’t taste the best.

livvy_and_molly_summer_smoothie_recipe_apple_banana_smoothie_blog_5livvy_and_molly_summer_smoothie_recipe_apple_banana_smoothie_blog_4livvy_and_molly_summer_smoothie_recipe_apple_banana_smoothie_blog_6livvy_and_molly_summer_smoothie_recipe_apple_banana_smoothie_blog_3livvy_and_molly_summer_smoothie_recipe_apple_banana_smoothie_blog_2livvy_and_molly_summer_smoothie_recipe_apple_banana_smoothie_blog_7

Ingredients

  1. Apple slices – 2 to 3
  2. Banana slices – 7 to 10
  3. Milk – 1 glass for 1 serving
  4. Cinnamon dust

 

Process

We mentioned it before here that apples are not good when taken on an empty stomach, the acid can react badly, happened to me once and lesson learned. Banana, on the other hand, is kind of neutral (but if it is the first thing you have in the morning and you puke it out then for certain it reacted badly with your empty stomach, don’t do that again. We all have different systems and foods behave differently with our bodies).

Blend the apple and banana slices with milk.

Add few ice cubes and blend a little again.

Pour it out and sprinkle cinnamon dust on top.

 

Make sure you have more of banana and milk and less of apples because we really don’t want the malic acid and ascorbic acid and wtf acids to react.

Add honey or raisins if you like (we skipped this part)

We always write it for all our food posts that you should first check with the people if they have food allergies or are lactose intolerant, please do that before you serve any recipes to anybody. With so many people having food allergies you can never be too careful!

Hope you enjoy having our smoothies and come back to our blog tomorrow for a beauty post. We really love each one of you guys, please follow us on this blog for more!

Red Nails for Spring and Summer

Let me just clarify one thing, Red is NOT my favorite color.

Hi, and welcome to another nail art post! Well, technically there won’t be any art on my nails for this post, but I did apply some glitter polish, tada!!!!

Red is seriously not my favorite, I am always in doubt when I am anywhere near this particular color, I avoid loud and bright colors, and that’s not because I am dusky. I think anyone having brown/dark skin can rock orange and red and yellow. Neon colors look so cool on dark skin, but somehow I just don’t feel great when I am wearing shocking colors. That is my opinion, though I’ve been told I look smashing in red. I am one of those girls who love dark colors that have black as undertone, like darkest green (I won’t specify the exact shade even if I knew the name, I love Moss Green too, greens are bomb) or dark maroon or midnight blue. Black and White are my favorites and if I had to choose other colors I’d go with green, purple and silver. Never red.

I have just one red dress and I rarely wear that, but it strikes me…am I being too judgemental of that color? Because, my sis and I are painters and we love all colors…may be this color wasn’t given a chance? Should I start having more reds around me? Spring time is such a sweet time, and with pinks and reds around we can easily say that this would be a perfect time for me to paint my nails red.

I wish the glitter was more prominent in the pictures but don’t you worry, I’ll be posting a video on our YouTube soon so you get a closer look. Click the YouTube button on the sidebar top right to subscribe 🙂

Anyone who thinks like me, that red nails kinda shout out loud in the face? I like dark nails, don’t get me wrong! I am into goth and punk, I love black nails and designing, but red is like walking on egg shells for me. I think it looks better on other girls, what do you feel about my red nails here? Also, do you love wearing rings while taking your manicure/nail art pics? It was way too hot outside to take more pics, so I just swiped two coats, snapped these,  and rushed in with Livvy. Spring is more of summer where we live, the sun is blazing already!

Happy Easter 2018

Happy Easter, y’all ! We hope everyone is having a grand Easter season ❤ If only we could celebrate Holy Mass today it would have been amazing , but unless we travel to another place in few hours (which is not happening) we’ll be Mass-less this Easter. We both are unwell and, lemme guess, the earliest we’d recover is when it will already be Easter Monday. So, by the time we feel okayish to be out of the house it will already be Monday morning. Allergies, ugh! Anybody with serious ENT issues, we feel ya! We hope you are having an amazing time with family and friends , if not …then please add us on Facebook , every blogger here ( or non blogger) can send us request on this profile and we’ll be happy to accept you , just that we stay away from fake profiles, but unless you are a real threat we’ll be happy to have new friends 🙂 This artwork you see as the cover pic of the post is my artwork, drew it last month. It signifies Christ’s crucifixion and the two miracles ( Turning water into wine at wedding feast of Cana , and the feeding of 5000 ), more like a prologue to the body and blood of Christ that is symbolized by bread and wine. For more artworks please follow us on Brand Olishna

Christ is everything in our lives , my sister and I are born Catholics, but how many Christians take Christ seriously?! So, being born a Christian does not bring a prerogative there. Almost all Christian families will be saying the same prayers, every Christian child grows up listening to the hymns but how many turn out to be as humble as Christ? We had a convent upbringing, and no matter how many nuns yell at you for not having an active prayer life, trust us, if you yourself don’t have the urge to connect with God then no one can help you get closer to Him. I would have had the same respect for Christ even if I weren’t a Christian from the start. The reason we chose to have Christ as the driving force in our lives is not because we were born Christians or that the Convent taught us many prayers, you love God because you realize how good He has been and how much He loves you , no ministry can teach you how to revere God or how deeply you should feel for everything God created. Your soul is tied to God and He is the main fibre of your existence.  Just like my sis Livvy and I were discussing the other day, going to confession is not enough. As Christians we receive sacraments and Reconciliation/Penance is one of them. It is said that your sins are forgiven when you confess and then you go in peace. But it totally outrages me when people don’t respect this sacrament, confessing sins and then going back to the same sinful ways, beating the wife, rebuking children, stealing, cheating on boyfriend and then expecting the sins will be forgiven just because the Christian laws say so. People often forget that the Lord said, “Go in peace, and sin no more” … Asking for forgiveness and feeling sorry for sins or being ashamed is not enough, you need to refrain yourself, going back to your old cheap ways will only mean that you are mocking this Holy Sacrament. The act of Contrition is so heavy with meaning, you can google it up and see how “I will sin no more” is so much hard hitting. It is disappointing to see so many people, who are my parish members, take this special sacrament as a game for fun when they go in and out of the confession box and then retort to the same sinful life. I do not talk to this one particular person, one of the core members of the prayer group, who is also into homosexual prostitution. Yes, I know about this person, I know well because I have homosexual friends, and this person is a friend of another friend of mine, and I am against every ill practices as such. We stay away from toxic people, you can always argue that one should correct “stupid” people in private and bring them to God but you should really not get into conversation with evil minds. In the end, you need to choose either a rotten person or God. We are not homophobic and have nothing against homosexuality, but we hate prostitution, and no matter how long the Church says that homosexual love is forbidden I have only one thing to say (especially to my homosexual friends who are strong believer of Christ too) : Christ loves you, and He only looks at how humble you are, how beautiful your soul is, how prepared you are against temptations, how amazing you can be to other people. The love you feel for another man or woman ( be it homosexual or heterosexual ) should always be based on your understanding of soul, God has made everything good, and only evil intentions make things unholy. If your love for another man or woman is only based on sex then it is time for you to change. But if you love a person for the heart, if you are bleeding for the love then God is with you. He does not judge you if you have done no harm.

My sister and I take Christ’s name too much, we are guilty of that. But if you do respect him and love him then you will take God’s name even if you are running late for work, it is like God is holding my life up because if he didn’t I’d just keep crashing. We both sisters have witnessed many small miracles in our lives, and we continue to see God’s presence. I will not be typing out a whole biblical dialogue here , haha, we try to keep things secular as much possible because God is for all, Christ died for all, He has risen for all of us. One man of early thirties who did not get scared to face a preordained death when he already knew He could easily skip the death part. All the scourging he accepted resonates with our pain we feel in our daily lives. His pain was greater but out of that pain came a victorious streak of blood that helped us claim our souls back.

May this Easter be special for all ❤ Amen

XOXO
