2018

This is my first post in months and I am excited to start with something new in my household. A new oven! This oven came with the house when we bought it on 2003, and it served us well until month ago. It started turning off by itself and as much as I loved it, I needed a new one.  Like what Ms.Streisand said, "some good things never last."  It was like ending a good relationship. I honed my kitchen talent with that oven so I thankfully said goodbye to my it by baking one last dessert.


I found this delicious looking cake from Smitten Kitchen and tweaked some ingredients for my liking and what I have available on that day. The original recipe is made with blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I ate all my blackberries two days before I decided to make the cake (and too lazy to go run to the store) I settled for just rasp and blueberries that day. To make up for the lack of berries, I added orange juice instead:) I also opted in for simple glaze instead of what she had on her recipe. So without further ado, here's the tweaked recipe for what I call Orange-Berries Cake.



I know that I will have plenty of time baking with my new oven and hopefully it will last just as long, if not longer than my old oven. Please do try this recipe of feel free to visit the original recipe. Ta.ta. for now!

Silky eyemasks

I have been experiencing some restless nights. Part of that is my body's time clock and the other part is my room is not dark enough for me. I have a blackout curtain that is supposed to block any light from outside but it is still not dark enough for me. This is why I am very excited to try this chic pink Oosilk eye mask that I got in the mail. Unlike some other eye mask, this one is silky and skin friendly. I just tried it and it did provide some extra blockage for the light. Most of all, it is not only silky and adjustable but it comes with different colors as well. You do not have to settle on one color, you can have a his and her eye mask to claim ownership before getting a good night's sleep! This is a perfect gift for anybody so visit Oosilk and get yours now!

Hair Do

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post from Divatress but all opinions are mine.

Have you ever looked at somebody else's hair and wished that you could have the same? I have! I always have long, fine, straight hair and yes, not to brag but a lot of people like my hair but to be honest, it needs more volume and more body.

I have always been jealous of my cousin's hair. She always have that full hair with the right amount of volume and wave and I thought it was always the hair I really wanted. I have tried going to the hair salon and had my hair curled  but I didn't know how to take care of it so it didn't come out great, so I accepted my fate--I will have this plain straight hair with not enough volume and body.

Fortunately there are beautiful half wigs that I can rock on during special occasions. They have tons of wigs to choose from short, straight, curly, or those amazing weaves. You can choose from real human hair, synthetic, or human hair blend. You can create your o…

Non-greasy Moisturizer

This is my 2nd time trying the #NEWYORKBIOLOGY moisturizer. I just love the way it moisturizes my skin without the burning sensation and the reddening of my skin. I have a sensitive skin, so it is important for me to be vigilant in applying anything on my face. The product is very easy to open and use. You do not have to struggle trying to unscrew a cap. You just pull the clear cover, push the top to get the cream out. I am very glad that I am able to try the product for free in exchange for my honest opinion. For more reviews and to find out where to get the product, visit here please.
