Such a good weekend of food and loved having time in my kitchen. I made the tomahawk steak and WOW, what a hit! I also made a small filet that had been languishing in my freezer and a bunch of Mongolian chicken using this recipe. I figured that I can freeze or use the chicken for lunches, I like...
Well, I have 2 pieces of advice. 1) Work out in some way. Stress causes a pseudo fight or flight response, so working out suck as running, lifting, or hitting a punching bag all help work out the aggression. 2)Have rituals and boundaries.
Every day after work I do little yoga and sit down and...
I dedicate specific days to specific tasks. For example:
Mon: Dust and vacuum
Tue: Wipe bathroom counter, clean mirror, and scrub toilet
Wed: Wipe kitchen counters and stovetop, and wipe down fridge shelves
Etc. I keep the tasks on my calendar, and once I've completed the day's task, I move it...
Many of my favorite pieces are vintage. To me, it's more than finding a one-of-a-kind piece that is beautiful, high quality, and has proved it will stand the test of time. It's also kind of rebellious, anti-capitalist, and anti-fast fashion. The world is FULL of stuff that is already wonderful...
I love to make greetings cards so I have practice in calligraphy a few months also:)
I read their wiki, resources like the "Calligraphy Bible" for more references to different scripts, bought some dip pens and ink, and began practicing various broad nib scripts. With regards to the development...
Last my purchase is the Ray-Ban Cockpit Aviators, and I love them. I have a small-ish face, and the lenses are a little smaller than standard Ray-Ban aviators. I bought them online after I tried on one of my friend's same aviator sunglasses
My favorite is this [pair] of Persols in the Tobacco...
When we were younger, we used a tent and found the most remote site we could to camp. Now we use a tent/trailer and camp at sites with water and indoor restrooms.
The activities I do while camping include hiking, kayaking, bird watching, fishing, journal writing and generally just...
Here are my regular habits:
Clean dishes as you make them; never have more than one set dirty at a time
Don't just drop stuff where you are put it back where it goes
Get rid of stuff you don't use; donate it, give it to a friend who will use it, or just throw it away
Pick up something or put...
It is the very rare bird who can shave off eyebrows and make it work. Frankly, I doubt this worked for these actresses in person. And I've never gotten the "Joan Crawfod as a Beauty" idea. I mean she's hardly woof woof material but seems rather plain and ordinary to me.
I jog/work out in the evenings, 3 times a week tops. I just pineapple my hair or put it in a very loose bun while exercising. If my hair gets sweaty I rinse my scalp/roots with water and/or conditioner and rub to remove the sweat without disrupting the style too much.
Coconut oil is fantastic for cooking! First of all, the health benefits are outstanding, and it is more stable than most oil at high temperatures. It's also excellent for hair and skin, but a little goes a long way, for me, at least.
Laser removing! I did it about 5 years ago and am currently looking for a new place to do a few touch up sessions-- so worth it!
Wearing less makeup is something that I have become way more comfortable with in the last year—and my skin is very happy about the decision, too!
