A Homemade Applesauce Converter

“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer’s best of weather And autumn’s best of cheer.” ~ Helen Hunt Jackson Keeping with the apple theme and also channeling a bit of childhood, my Mom, aunt, and grandmother use to make this scrumptious delicacy all the time when I was growing up. Yet as a chef and someone ….

‘Tis the Season for Apple Crisp

“Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn.” ~  Walter Scott As a former pastry chef now living in the Concrete  Jungle. I don’t get a lot of opportunities to strut my baking chomps. After all, I live in the city known for micro apartments where you are lucky if ….

Micro Fashion

“Some days I want to look like a hipster kid, and then other days I want to be prim and proper. I really wish I had, like, seven lives so I could go from being a hipster one day to a punk the next. But that’s the great thing about fashion. In a way, it’s like acting, because you can ….

Rent the Runway

Every fashionista has dreams of wearing haute couture and heck maybe even strutting their stuff down the runway. While walking down a runway scares the bejesus out of me, I wouldn’t mind a pair of Heidi’s legs.  And those clothes? Forget about it!

The topic on every commentators mouth seemed to be cupping. As swimmers dove through the waters, you could see the circular marks baring colors on their backs almost like tattoos except these are far less ….

Some Clarisonic Love

So a year ago after much advertising persuading and really twisting my arm, I caved and bought a Clarisonic. Why oh why did I not buy this sooner?!?! Seriously! It was Christmas come to town. It was who the hell needs a boyfriend when I have this? It was love and if you try to steal it I will go ….

The Anti-Social Shopper

One of the first things I got when I moved to the city was, “You must shop a ton!” Actually nope. I do not. First and foremost a thing called rent and food come first, especially when I first moved there and was living on soup and shitty coffee and my apartment was a hell hole. It was not the “Welcome to ….

Chic Bangs – Chic Bangs.

“I like my hair long, and I love my bangs. I love them because I can pin them back or keep the fringe with attitude.” ~ Cassie Steele Nothing like freshly dyed hair AND a new hair style! I feel like a brand new woman because I am! My hair stylist Andrea, has been doing my hair for close to twenty ….

The Delights of Coconut Oil

“In order to have skin that glows and looks healthy and actually is healthy, you need to look at the whole picture and have a holistic approach to it. A lot of it is exercising regularly, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and keeping stress down.” ~Allison Williams I was talking to fellow blogger, and friend Nida from Shopaholic Blogs who had decided ….
