If I ask why you like wearing linen, then I will probably hear these answers only.
It is breathable and wicking
It repels stains
It retains dyed colors
Your answer matches with one of these options, right?
Linen fabrics are light, long-lasting, natural material which is easy to wash, dries out very quickly and the process of ironing is not as complicated as it might exist. In spite of this linen fabric also crumples fast, consequently appeared wrinkles are very common, which show its authenticity and originality which will serve you for ages.

Flax has been known since ancient time; it is the oldest textile fiber. Flax dated back since 9000 years ago, which is way older than cotton and silk. Every country has cultivated fax like Poland, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the British Isles. The quality of fabric depends upon climate and attention towards them during growing. After grown up flax, plants are either pulled out of the ground or cut close to the roots (hand-pulling has better quality linen). Winnowing process help removes the seeds. In the retting process, the fibers are loosened from the plant and crushed between the rollers to remove the woody part. After separating long strands from the short one, the next step is to spin the fibers into yarns and then woven into different grades of linen.

Linen is suitable for all types of clothing it just depends upon the weight of the fabric. Since, Lightweight is good for blouses, tops, shirts, dresses, chemises, lingerie and children’s wear. Medium weight is good for pants, men’s shirts, dresses and skirts wearable for summers. Heavyweight is good for blazers, jackets, suits, men’s trousers.

Linen is a natural fabric to ensure the softness of the fabric remains the same; you need to take good care of them. Pure linen gets shrink after the first wash by 3 to 10%, that’s why you should always pre-wash the linen fabric in cool water. Dry cleaning will also cause fabric shrinking, whenever you dry clean or do ironing use a good iron with heavy steam and a damp press cloth for garments that will be dry cleaned when completed.

While sewing makes sure, you use a good quality thread like cotton or cotton wrapped polyester.

There are plenty of foods which are best eaten when raw since they lose their nutrients after cooking. Contrary there are some foods which should be eaten only after cooking. Cooking may kill harmful bacteria and release nutrients.Before adding those colorful rich-nutrients into your plate, make sure you know whether to eat it raw or cooked. Some food requires cooking to kill bacteria so to provide you with excellent health benefits. Cooking preserves nutrients and antioxidants and improves their capacity. Whereas raw food could upset your digestion, you would chew it quickly, but that cold, hard food will create a problem with your digestion.

Here is the list of some food which you should never, ever eat raw:

Potatoes

Potato is versatile, popular vegetable and almost favorite of every continent. Whether it is America, Spain, Italy or South Asia, everybody loves potatoes. You can cook it whatever way you like, you can saute it, fry it, roast it but you can’t eat it raw.

One of the biggest reason it grows under the soil and comes in contact with toxic substances which makes it harmful to eat raw. another reason is it has high starch content which could create a problem in digestion it can cause bloating, gastrointestinal effects.

You may have noticed green potatoes; they turn green if they stay for a long
time in the warm and damp area that green color is toxic called Solanine which could cause you food poisoning.

Kidney Beans

Red kidney beans contain a protein called lectins, in kidney beans, it is known as phytohemagglutinin (harmful at high doses). It is not like only red kidney bean contain this protein, but other beans also contain phytohemagglutinin, but red kidney beans contain them in the highest concentration. Eating red kidney beans in a wrong way could prove harmful for your health.

Raw kidney beans can cause gastrointestinal problems like nausea and vomiting or food poisoning, the more it gets eaten, the more intense symptoms will be.

The best solution for this is to follow these steps while cooking red kidney beans Soak, Drain, and then Cook. Soak kidney beans for at least 5-6 hours, drain and raisin it and boil it for at least 30 minutes on the stove.

Milk

I know you did expect milk in this list but yeah it is true, Raw milk can be dangerous for your health. Since raw milk comes from cow, goat or sheep without being pasteurized which contain harmful bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella.

Next time when you buy milk to make sure it is pasteurized since raw milk is 100 times more likely to cause foodborne illnesses than other dairy products like butter, cheese or cream.

Mushrooms

Mushroom is generally raw eaten food which could be tough to digest. Cooking breakdowns the harmful compounds in mushrooms and leaves it with all goodness.

Mushrooms’ cell walls are not similar to other fruits and vegetable cell walls. Cooking breaks that tough cell wall (which makes it unhealthy raw food), so our bodies can handle processing the tough fungal cells. And releases all the nutrients which are protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Bitter Almonds

The almond which you eat every day is called “sweet almond” which are rich in nutrients and excellent for health. Bitter almond is not their opposite, but they are the close cousins of sweet almond which contains hydrocyanic acid which is an evil combination of hydrogen cyanide and water.

Hydrogen cyanide poisoning includes symptoms like dizziness, headache, vomiting, and convulsions, depending upon the consumption.

You might not believe it, but it would take only 70 raw bitter almond to kill a young adult now you can imagine how deadly it is if eaten raw.

Blanching and Roasting destroy the hydrogen cyanide present in the bitter almond.

Spinach

Spinach is a green leafy vegetable, which grows in the wild and may contain bugs and bacteria that could be very harmful to the body. I’m sure you don’t want to eat those bugs and bacterias along with your food. So, it is always good to boil and sauté it rather than eating it raw in salads or with any other food.

Moreover, it is said that cooking spinach may enhance its antioxidant content making it healthier to consume.

Tomatoes

Tomato has a rich amount of lycopene, which helps in making tomato red and contains antioxidant properties too. Cooking tomatoes boost the power of this antioxidant, even more, that is why it is suggested to eat tomatoes after cooking only.

Raw tomatoes won’t be as beneficial to you that as the cooked ones. The human digestive system isn’t able to release the majority of lycopene from raw tomatoes.

Before I start talking about benefit roller lash mascara, I would like you to tell that it has been accoladed with #1 Best-Selling Prestige Curling Mascara in the US and Allure Best Of Beauty Awards, Best Everyday Mascara 2015, 2016.
You might be thinking that being accoladed by such titles it would be the best mascara you could own. But is it worth the hype? Does it deserve so much talking? Let’s find out.Benefit introduced Roller Lash as the face of the revolution. As everyone is busy using an eyelash curler, It eliminates the use of a curler as it claims to lift and curl lashes for up to 12 hours.Benefit has introduced it taunting roller lash mascara as “everyone can use.” Meaning that it will fulfill every women’s lash need, whether she’s got straight lashes, short lashes small eyes or big eyes.

What does it do?

It grabs, separate, lifts and curls lashes for up to 12 hours. It not only gives beautiful lashes but stays on even after getting in contact of water and just like it is easy to remove as well.

Shades

Benefit roller lash mascara comes in original ink black and brown shade.Benefit roller lash mascara comes in a plastic tube generally as other mascara comes, the applicator wand of the mascara is something to talk about.

The applicator wand has small hooks so to catch every lash; the brush is slightly curved (30°) to be easy for curling. Roller Lash has a universal brush which is for all type of eyes.

The applicator wand is designed in a way that the hook would grab each lash from root to tip.

Application

Gently wiggle the application wand from the base of the lash to tip, repeat across your lash line and make sure to catch every lash. You’re ready to rock girl!
When I started applying the mascara, I felt the hooks it does grab every lash, and I felt that it is molding the lashes upward. I did feel the lift after the first application it was gentle and smooth and made my lash beautifully lifted.
The formula of roller lash mascara isn’t too wet, so it doesn’t clump my lashes together what I love most about it that it doesn’t overkill my lashes instead it made my lashes fluttery effect making it still look natural.

My Verdict

So what’s my final say about it- I just love it, the lift it gave to my lashes is just phenomenal. The hooks did hold my lashes and lasted for throughout the day.
I love this product and definitely going to repurchase it.
