Stop doubting and start Doing

Hey ladies & Gents

2014 has been a rough year but I’m grateful for the things and situations I went through. Those situations actually opened up my eyes. In 2014 I opened up my business and it went great. It didn’t go as I would like it but you better believe it’s game time in 2015.

Stay at home < Back to work

In 2014 I was still trying to balance the life as a mother, Wife, Business owner. I was bored …. To wake up to four walls everyday was killing me on the inside. Staying home is not my cup of tea. Being a stay at home mom and wife has come to an end. In Jan. I will be going back to work. And that my friend, I am super excited about . Kudos for the mommies and wives that stay home and love it. I tried to love it but I don’t ( can I just be real). I love interacting with other people and I love to WORK !!!! You guys are probably asking how will I manage my business? Well I plan to manage all emails and process orders at night. And since my sister is living with me she can help me pack orders and I’ll drop them off at lunch time. It’s all planed out now let’s see how it goes .

In 2015 I plan to blog a lot much more . When I blog I feel this accomplishment . I love being able to be so transparent to my readers. It allows me to be myself . This year I want to encourage you to take what your passionate about and bring it to life !!!! Do what you love . It makes life a lot more easier and fun ❤️.

Happy New Year !!!!

Crusted Herb Chicken

Hello ladies and Gents !

So this recipe was created when I absolutely had no idea what I was going to cook !!!! And I remembered I had a whole chicken in the fridge. I Didn’t want to cook a boring chicken meal . So I started putting the ingredients I had in my pantry together ! My chicken came out amazing ! It was very moist and juicy ! And most importantly it was FINGER LICKIN GOOD!! Hubby and my family really enjoyed it. Absolutely amazing.

Perfect sides are rice and steamed veggies. This will pair up well with Mac and cheese.

Hopefully you enjoy it as well. Easy and simple chicken recipe .

Herbed Bake Chicken

1 defrost whole chicken
1/2 cup of salt free 17 seasoning (lawrys)
1/2 cup of complete seasoning
4 table spoons of chili powder
2 tablespoon pollo seasoning (Maggie)

Mix all dry seasoning in a bowl

Season your chicken . Rub all over . Add some on the insides as well.

Bake for 30-40 depending on oven on 375

Note: Do not cover. Bake uncovered to allow skin to crisp and allow rub to stay on chicken .

Purple Passion

Hey ladies lately I’ve been getting myself into make up . I mean I’ve always loved make up but I mean I really love love it now . YouTube has been my place to Brush my skills and learn new techniques. I had the honor to be my best friend maid of honor this past weekend . The wedding was absolutely beautiful . Of course she asked my to do everyone make up . Including herself . Let’s just say hats down to all the professional make up artist . The hours of standing is CRAZY . I was bummed after the wedding all I wanted was a hot bath and shower .

My favorite new technique is highlighting under the eye . (Concealing) and if you read my pervious post you’ll see that my favorite concealer is the L.A pro high definition concealer . And my second fav is Mac .

Another technique is BLENDING !!!!!! Oh this part is so important I mean very important ! If you want flawless make up blending is like the number one rule and of course you must have good brushes to achieve this technique .

Ladies I’m no make up artist but I’m learning as I go . Basically I’m self taught . This look I’ve created has gotten so many raves on my social media ( thinking about creating a YouTube channel soon) I love this look. I’ve finally gotten the steps for blending four colors .

Products I use for this look :

Foundation : Maybelline dream liquid mousse air brush finish cocoa dark #3
Brows : e.l.f eyebrow kit (dark)
Eyes : costalscents pallet , dollar store pallet ( good stuff ) eyeliner by e.l.f
Lashes : e.l.f natural
Blush : nyx rouge cream blush
Lips: L.A colors berry ice (my favorite lippe) and only 1$ !!!!!!

Beauty Staple

Lately make up has become so easy for me to apply . A clean and smooth face helps ! I’ve came across “African black soap” and my experience has been pleasant . This soap has a mixture of organic ingredients . My face has naturally started to glow and dark spots started to fade . I mean it’s a Miracle soap . My hubby even started using it and he absolutely loves it !

As a mother, wife and business owner I pretty much look tired a lot . And concealer has been a staple for me . I’ve had my shares with cancelers but my top is the L.A pro concealer . It blends so well with my skin I apply it under my eyes middle of my forehead , nose and chin . And I BLEND !!!

I hardy wear make up but when I do I must have concealer . I love it cause it light .

I’ve had many issues with my face because of stress and I find that drinking plenty of water and African black soap helps a lot !! I hope you find this helpful . I know I didn’t write a long paragraph but I hope it helps .
