Watching Eva Longoria Sew While Reading About Sewing Is Oddly Soothing

Glamour Magazine / YouTube

Sit back, open your ears and get ready for the weirdest and most soothing video of Eva Longoria sewing that you will EVER see. Plus, you might learn a thing or two as she reads the entire Wikipedia page for sewing. Thank you, Glamour Magazine!

It all starts with Eva Longoria delicately and professionally cutting her fabric.

Mind you, she is reading the full, unabridged Wikipedia entry on sewing. #Flawless

Then she effortlessly flips her material around to get to work making us a pillow.

And that calming powder blue really makes us all feel super comfy.

There is nothing more satisfying than watching someone easily thread a needle.

Threading a needle on the first try is something you should DEFINITELY put on your résumé. ?

From the very first stitch, Eva’s technique is both relaxing to watch and inspiring af.

Because if you can put a pillow together, then you can put your life together on your worst day.

Does the pillow fit?

All you OCD folks will really appreciate Longoria getting rid of that pesky stray thread.

Perfection, really.

And as she rests the pillow on her legs, you forget that you have just learned the entire history of sewing and it was worth it.

7 Home Remedies From My Colombian Abuela (That Actually Work)

E! / Mitú

All my life I grew up practicing my abuelita’s remedies. They cured anything and made everyone more beautiful… according to abuelita. But when desperate times called for desperate measures, I was forced to try these health hacks again. Turns out, being first-generation Latina has its benefits. Do try these at home!

Sore throat? Try gárgaras de agua y sal con limón.

Gargle warm, salted water with lemon to soothe your sore throat. Trust me, mi abuelita is practically a doctor. Works every time.

Stomach ache? Drink yerbabuena.

Making a tea with this will fix an upset stomach in a punch. You should always have this sweet-smelling plant at home; it works even better than “sana sana colita de rana.”

Feeling meh? Boil aloe.

When you’re sick, boil aloe leaves and the sickness will leave your house. My grandma tells me to drink it, but the way it purifies the air is enough for me. (Keep in mind, though, that aloe has also been called a cure-all for all sorts of dubious things, so just make sure to do your research before using it.)

A sea salt scrub will keep your skin smooth and silky.

Abuelita always brags about her silky-smooth skin. Her trick? Use an olive oil and sea salt scrub to slough away dead skin and lock in moisture. I like using it with lavender-scented essential oil!

Vitamin E is your best friend.

Abuelita swears by vitamin E. And she’s got a point. Evidence has shown that vitamin E can help reduce extra scar tissue from growing around a wound.  You can take it in pill form, or by eating a variety of foods, like seeds, nuts, and leafy green vegetables. (Just don’t place it directly ON a wound.)

Té de manzanilla isn’t just for drinking.

Té de manzanilla, a true abuelita favorite, really can bring out the natural highlights in your hair.  Boil a tea bag let it cool, and then soak your hair.  Many Latin American supermarkets even sell a special shampoo de manzanilla, which also leaves your hair lighter.

Coughing up a lung? Try eucalyptus.

Eucalyptus can help ease a bad cough. Just make sure to dilute eucalyptus oil before ingesting it or placing it onto the skin. I like to use it dried leaf form, adding honey any time I make tea out of it.  As an added benefit, when you boil these leaves, your home smells like you’re at a spa.
