Salmon remixed


I don't know about you all but leftovers are meh for me. Since I had another salmon fillet left, I decided to remix it by making pasta instead of eating the rice and spinach from the previous night. I boiled some bowtie pasta, and made my own little concoction for the sauce.

Sauce: Olive oil (enough to cover the pan), garlic, onion, a few squirts of lemon juice and diced tomatoes.

After I drained the pasta, I added some of my sauce to my personal serving of pasta. I then warmed up the leftover salmon fillet and cut it into pieces. Mixed together and voila!

Salmon with coconut rice and spinach


I recently decided to become a pescetarian, for those who don't know what that is, it is a person who only eats fish for meat. I didn't eat pork anyway, but now there is no turkey, no chicken, no beef, etc... in my diet. This is the dish I made last night.

Salmon: I just used lemon pepper seasoning, onion, garlic, and a bit a lemon juice. I baked in the oven for about 45 minutes.

Rice: I boiled jasmine rice with water, salt and soy coconut milk. It had a nice sweet taste to it which I loved.

Spinach: I just put a little water in a pot and added spinach with onion and garlic. Salt and pepper to taste.

Tell em Tuesday hiatus

Well darlings, my computer hard drive has gone kaput so I am using my work computer. Therefore, my camera software, webcam, and video software is unavailable to me right now since I can't add all of that ish to my work computer. So while waiting for the repair, I can't do vids. In the meantime, I will add some posts to the blog lol!

Qhemet's Moringa Tree Conditioning Ghee

How I love thee, let me count the ways...

So, I have been on a quest for an effective leave in. Well, I don't have to look any further. I am a major fan of Qhemet products, so I did not hesitate to participate in the Black Friday sale. I set my alarm for 6 o'clock a.m. and immediately rolled over to turn on my laptop. There were some glitches so the sale didn't start until 7, but trust and believe I put my order in ASAP and thankfully so because the sale was a huge success and later orders will be last to fill. As soon as I saw the box on my doorstep, I squealed with delight. I ripped into it and immediately put away all of the goodies but kept one of the conditioners out. I opened it and unfortunately spilled some (Be careful when opening, it is of a liquid consistency). Even after the seemingly massive spill, the product was still full which is one of the main reasons I love Qhemet products. They are filled to the brim. I immediately distributed the conditioner throughout my hair because it was in dire need of moisture. I clarified my hair a couple of days before so my hair was a bit dry. This conditioner completely rectified my dryness. My hair immediately softened and hours later, it was still soft! I love this condish, and it definitely lives up to the rest of the product line. Thanks Qhemet Biologics for saving my hair and yet again ending my quest for a moisturizing conditioner!

My new fav body wash!

Due to Carol's Daughter no longer carrying the "You're so clean" body cleansing gel *insert side eye here*, I had to find a replacement.

Yes, I do have 1 unused bottle left as well as about 1\4 of product left in the bottle I'm currently using (As I tend to buy multiples of products I really like) but I didn't want to completely run out before finding a suitable stand in. I absolutely LOVE the way this body wash smells, the minty fresh aroma is just divine. I truly feel so clean, as the title states. But, as mentioned, it is no longer available.
I have tried Pure and Natural body wash that I purchased from Target before in the "Oatmeal and shea butter" and the "Almond oil and cherry blossom" fragrances. I liked them both. I use more natural products on my skin since my skin is sensitive. I went to Big Lots to get some cheap pens and pencils to give students and found myself on the soap aisle. I stumbled across Pure and Natural body wash in "Rosemary and Mint".

I purchased one and tried it later on that night. I fell in love. The mint aroma isn't as overt as the Carol's Daughter but I still enjoy inhaling the freshness of the wash. Also, the wash was only $4.50 at Big Lots which is a few bucks cheaper than Tar-Jay! Needless to say I went back to Big Lots the next day and purchased a few more bottles! Hey, rather be safe than stinky! :)

Fall is Heyah!

So out with the light hair color and onto the darker color. I used Tints of Nature in 3N, this is a permanent hair dye that I purchased from Whole Foods. It is ammonia, resorcinol, and paraben free. It also has certified organic ingredients.

My hair still is lighter in the front where the highlights were, but it's a lighter brown which I like a lot! My hair still has dimension but it's not a stark contrast as it was before.

Deal of the week (well last week)

Ulta salon quality nail polishes were 3 for $10. The nail polish is DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene free.
Also, I purchased the Essence nail stamping kit. It was $2.99. It is a much less expensive alternative to the Konad nail stamping kit. For only $2.99, I am more than pleased with the results!

My "Fade to Black"

So, we were supposed to wear black to be entered into a drawing to win Jay-Z suite tickets for his concert. Why when the winner was drawn, my name drawn but they wouldn't let me get the tickets because I had silver/grey in my outfit?!?! WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!! Jay-Z's black album was black with silver writing so give me a break! If they wanted us to wear solid black, that should have been disclosed beforehand! Talking about upset! I was still cute though lol!
