Soft Twist Out with As I Am Double Butter Cream-YouTube 2 part Tutorial

I take the clips out when I am asleep and put them back in in the morning if my hair is not dry. In this video it took about 2 days for my hair to dry since I did smaller twists.

Hi loves! I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas day! This is the outfit I wore to my parents house today for dinner. I scored this blazer last year after Christmas from New York & Co for about 20$. I will be uploading the results to my twistout video today also. Take care!

Fashion Friday: Carpe Diem

Image
I have been obsessing and loving Tartan print the last couple of months. I have eyed several skirts, but finally settled on this one. So, can you all believe Christmas is next week? Or that 2014 is right around the corner? It kind of makes me think what goals will I be setting for myself next year in my personal life and blog...What I do know is that I want to seize the day more often. I spend way too much time contemplating what things that I can not control. I want to spend more time enjoying life now that both myself and my husband have graduated college. What are some of your goals for 2014?

Hi loves! This is a vlog update on Fashiontolivetv. I decided to do a detox while my hubby was away for two days on a business trip this month and I vlogged it. I got the idea from a Dr.Oz episode I watched sometime that week and I put a menu together based on what he suggested.






 cooked 1 bag (two servings) of boil in bag Basmati rice by Success seasoned with a little spray butter, salt, and cumin)
1 cup of green Lentils (which for me was about 6 servings)

My tomato soup
salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
a pinch of cayenne pepper
2 whole tomatoes diced with the juice
4 cups water
cilantro (with out the stems)
white onion
4 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons evoo

cook the garlic and onion in the pan in the evoo once it is brown add the tomato, water, and cilantro and let simmer (with the lid on) for about 30 minutes.

The thing I love about fall and winter are the rich colors. We are experiencing very few cold or even cool days so I opted to winterize outfit with this soft plaid scarf. I have had this black peplum for so long it has been a great staple item in my wardrobe! Hope you all are having a fantastic Monday!
