Oatmeal raisin cookies were next on the holiday agenda from The Joy of Cooking book. They turned out great! Super easy to follow the recipe and tasty afterward! I am excited to arrive at my small group get together this Friday with my various Christmas cookies: gingersnaps, sugar drops, candy cane and oatmeal raisin cookies. … Continue reading
I gave Dove's Refresh + Care (Invigorating Dry Shampoo) a test run a few days ago when my 3 day straightened hair was at its end and needed a pick-me-up. I sprayed it on my scalp in sections and brushed it out when I was all done and it did a great job of cleansing … Continue reading Prepping for the Holidays (Dry Shampoo Review)
Christmas baking has begun in our family! My eldest reminded me that we need to put some cookies out for Santa so naturally I decided to test out my gingersnaps on my 3 favourite guys at home. The cookies turned out smaller than expected, but their taste definitely surpassed my expectations! What kick! I followed … Continue reading Gingersnaps!
I absolutely love having straight hair. I love the feel, I love how it looks, it's just so beautiful. One hair dresser at a high end salon said I could easily get away with wearing it for a week before washing it out to maximize how long it lasts, but seriously?? 7 days? I can't … Continue reading Straight hair funk?

They would often be characterized as frail, weak and sensitive; all in all, pretty pathetic and a burden to people more than anything else. Admittedly, I would smirk as the authors would target these women using sarcastic humour: "Oh my poor nerves, I just … Continue reading “Oh my poor nerves, I just can’t bear it!”
I would love to say that "at least I'm making my own spaghetti sauce", but it's one of those days where I am just tired. Who am I kidding? I always use the canned stuff anyway. Am I really missing out? I've spent the last hour and a half raking leaves just in the front … Continue reading In a pinch… Spaghetti wins every time!
There is great joy in cracking open books from your childhood and re-reading them. I'm not a fan of e-books, I like the smell of a good book and flipping the pages as I move my bookmark along. It gives me wonderful satisfaction! It didn't take me long to choose my box set of the … Continue reading Making a trip to the past.
Over the last few weeks I have been reading Leviticus from the NIV Bible and maybe I'm crazy but it wasn't nearly as bad as other people had said it would be. Repetitive, yes... but I found all the rituals and specific details rather fascinating. Everything must be exact. Precise. From sacrifices to festivals for … Continue reading Time for a trip to the Library! My Library.
In case I tricked you into thinking this was a post about my hair, sorry to disappoint! My post is actually all about the meal I made for tonight's dinner and it was SPI-CY! My one-pot wonder pasta and chicken dish was found on a video circulating through Facebook with about 30 other ones to … Continue reading Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot!!
So, after treating my hair with the mixture and sleeping on my special "silk pillowcase", this is my final result (below). It is not how I was hoping it would turn out compared to the last time I used an egg mixture. Last time my hair was a lot smaller for a few days, this … Continue reading End Result for Egg Yolk, Oil and Honey Mix
