Want $134 worth of skincare? For free?

Yeah, I thought so!

It includes the Charcoal Konjac sponge and Coffee Bean Eye Cream, both of which I have used and love.  (The eye cream smells like a cookie!)  You also get Vitamin C Serum, Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask, Argan Creamy Cleanser, and a cute drawstring bag.

The saying on the bag kind of makes me chuckle.  Guess it all depends on who you’re talking to! Continue reading

Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day…

I’m thinking green drinks.  But not green beer.  Or Shamrock Shakes.

Drinking a green drink (almost) every day is a habit that has stayed with me from my vegan days.  There’s something about starting the day with something fresh and green that really feels great.

In fact, I consider leafy greens to be one of my top skin foods.  (If you want to know the others, here’s a popular post from last summer:  People always ask me…. )

Tea and me

It’s no secret that I adore coffee.  I have probably published more posts about coffee than anything else.  And stay tuned…I have an awesome vanilla latte recipe coming up in the next few days.

So sometimes I switch to tea.  Sometimes it’s chai.  Or matcha. Lately I’ve been enjoying tulsi tea.

Easiest Asian-inspired salmon dinner.

Seriously.  Easiest thing ever.  You only use one pan, and measure nothing. Which means less cleanup.

You can probably put the whole thing together in the time it takes to listen to “The Shape of You.”  Or “Cold,” the new one from Maroon 5 and Future.  Which is kind of growing on me.  Just don’t watch the video right before bed.

But back to the salmon…like pretty much everything I post, this meal is paleo, primal, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, low carb and meets the requirements of a Whole30.  And my vegan friends could just leave out the fish sauce and sub tofu for the salmon.  

Oh yeah…and it tastes great.  Because otherwise why waste your time, right?  The mix of ginger and sesame is nice when you are craving Asian inspired flavors but don’t want sticky sweet teriyaki. Continue reading
