We're continuing with the green week that Vacker&Underbar suggested that bloggers could join. Is this because green is the best color ever? Well, green is awesome but the real reason behind it is because October is Depression Awareness Month. Therefore we're a bunch of ladies showing green polishes and also tries to share valuable information about depression.
I've written some things before in my previous posts so if you missed those posts you can read them too. In the comments there has come up a lot of useful tips that I'd like to talk about here; which is about what kinds of things a person suffering from depression can do if talking to a "shrink" feels too much or perhaps if you want to do something additional. Of cause every case of depression is unique so I can't say that everything will work to everybody but maybe it's worth trying? Studies have shown a connection with an increased feeling of well being if exercising, and don't necessarily means that you got to hit the gym, a small walk counts! Polished Marvels also pointed out that doing something creative, with your hands, also is good. And then we have this about eating correct and balanced, studies also show that vitamin D and Omega-3 play an important role. Eating nutritional supplement of those can be a good choice, vitamin D can be extra important for us who live far north and the sun isn't present all round the year. As you probably know, we can either eat vitamin D (fish, eggs and vitamin D enriched dairy's) or be in the sun where our body can "create" vitamin D and store it for a while. Scientist have found correlations between winter darkness and depression and suspects that Vitamin D is the missing ingredient. Another thing that people talk about is light therapy, now there's headphones giving light therapy and some people claims that it has helped them. I don't know if it works for everybody but why not? Now I've written far to much text again so let's look at the polish.. :)
The green polish I'm showing today is Oopsie Daises - Mojito Mist and when I saw it at Sminkan&Emma I just knew that I had to have it, seconds after I had bought it. First of all the name, mojito (if it's correctly done) is my favorite drink and than the actual polish looks really fun and unique. The base is light green, minty and there's white glitter an shredded green glitter. The shredded green glitter really looked like the muddled mojitos and I imagine the white glitter to be ice. I think I used two thicker coats for this.
