Of Bread & Blanket


Oh looky, September is here already and I have accomplished two things on the first day! I baked a chocolate chip banana bread and I finished crocheting Katie’s baby blanket! I have been working on the baby blanket on and off for about two weeks now. I had to bring it to work and fiddled with it during breaktime to make sure that it will be done before her baby shower this Friday—which I cannot attend due to poor time-management by whoever organized it. Besides me, the only other person who is close with Katie in the entire workplace is Irina, and we both get out at 2 p.m. (the party is at 3!). So, the only two people she wants to attend on that shower will not be there! Like I said, poor time-management by whoever organized it. We will both try to make it but I don’t think it will happen since we both have to pick up our kids from school. Nevertheless, we already have gifts for her baby. It just sucks we can’t be there.

So anyway, moving on to a more positive note, my chocolate chip banana bread was a delicious success! Funny thing about banana bread is that I refused to bake and eat a normal/plain banana bread. I have tried  eating it when I was a kid and never cared for them. It never matter who baked them, I just never liked the taste of it until someone gave me a slice with chocolate chips on them. That changed my views on banana bread and I decided to never, ever bake nor eat banana bread unless of course there’s chocolates involved! My family loved them and luckily, I still have three bananas left for a fresh batch tomorrow.

I have been slacking in baking eversince I started working full-time. I miss treating my family with something homemade and freshly baked goods, so today was great. Anyway, I better get some zzz’s for tomorrow’s Labor Day cook-out! Take care!

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.
