Updated Night Time Routine

Back in October I shared my nighttime beauty routine, but a lot has changed since then.

So update time it is.

Below the video is a list of the products I use & the link to them on Amazon. Just FYI, I don't have affiliate links and this isn't sponsored. I just love these brands that much.



I realized at the end I said "ask on Amazon" clearly I meant "ask on YouTube." My brain is running on low.

Products mentioned:

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
CeraVe Eye Repair Cream
Teddie Organics Rosehip Oil
Asterwood Naturals Matrixyl 3000 (or look on The Ordinary, they have a great one)
Vitamin E Oil
Clindamycin
Castor Oil
Hell-Pore Clean Up Mask (like it says... black head & dead skin removing)
Kangsipack (Anti-aging)
Collagen Jella Pack (Sleep Mask)
Dermaroller

Food Network Star S13 Ep 11 Recap - The Finale

I wish I could say I was surprised last night.

The only thing that surprised me was the lame finale that Food Network put together.

Meal Pinning Monday

You could call the theme of this weekend's eating as "well that's not what I intended."

It started out with the Cordon Blue Chicken Casserole. I was thinking it had a good taste (keep in mind texture doesn't bother me), when all of the sudden Jeremy said "I can't take the texture of this I'm about to throw up."

That went well.

Then I attempted to make a keto version of English Cream & Berries... forgetting that Jeremy has Jello texture issues... guess who didn't eat it all.

I really should start making a list of what he doesn't like.

We have very different tastes and I often neglect to retain information. It doesn't work well.


[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking.

FIVE ON FRIDAY

Happy New Year... oh wait it's just the teacher new year.

It's like Chinese New Year but for educators this month.

So first up...

[ONE]

Im back on another episode at The Mommy Project, talking my usual nonsense mixed into the actual topic. You might hear a touch of me jabbering about how I read somewhere that high fat diets & being over 30 produces twins and how I'm making attempts at getting a 3rd kid through butter.

I'm weird. I know.

Check out Episode 54 over at The Mommy Project and see what else I managed to talk nonsense about sprinkled into the actual topic of Back to School... because I never stay on topic.


[TWO]

 Some silly person likes to copy me. He also likes to pretend to tell me what to do. I say pretend because we all know I'm not doing anything he says... mainly because it isn't in English. 


[THREE] 

I laughed at this like a crazy woman through an entire lunch period. Then I randomly laughed at it in my head the rest of the day. 


[FOUR]

Jeremy hunted down a frog yesterday so that Harrison could see it. He wouldn't actually touch it. 


[FIVE]

To show you the extent to which I have not taken pictures lately, Jeremy came into the house yesterday with this on his back. 

Ladybugs doing inappropriate things. 

That's how dull life has been. 

Let's just call that a plus. Dull is always welcome. 


It's not like you want photos of me working out, or of the garden I pulled everything living thing out of because I hate summer. 

I did order some new jeans and the Teddie Rosehip oil though, I'll share about that when in ships in 4-400 weeks. 

Food Network Star S13 Ep 10 Recap - Final 3

Last night the Food Network Star gods smiled down upon the Twitter dreams and prayers and Matthew was finally sent home. 

Yes I know people liked him, but there were also people who didn't. 


I fall in the didn't category.

Don't get me wrong, he was passionate and could cook. He just wasn't someone I would want to watch. No harm, no foul. Just my personal taste.

Cory, however, as I totally suspected, came back to the show from Star Salvation.

Unless the final deal was totally botched he could out cook Amy & David easily. Not that they aren't good. He is just has the experience of cooking in a restaurant and playing with food all day long. He's creative with food on a level that most people who didn't go to culinary food aren't at.

So anyway, Matthew out, Cory in.

The final 3 were all given pilots with Guy. I hate that this is the direction it's gone. I'd much prefer to see them get their own show and do a demo down that route.

They were all super nervous by this point, but Guy did a great job helping calm them into a state of Pilot that wouldn't eliminate all three.

Rusty was at MaGee's pretending to be Guy. He did exactly what I would do and called it Maggie's. Familiarity breeds mispronunciation. He's been there a bunch and supposedly never said it right.

There's a place here I continually call the wrong name... Pouparts. I can't say it the way I should... Pooparts. I just can't say Poo in a restaurant name.

Cory was at a Mexican place. He too was nervous and then calmed by a call to his bestie by Guy.

Come to think of it I don't recall Jason getting to phone a friend.

Jason did his faux pilot at a French restaurant. He was told to not say honey so much.

I would have been more excited about this episode had they filmed a cooking show pilot. The new hosting pilot deal isn't my jam.

Anyone else suffer from sick of seeing people eat at restaurants? 

Meal Pinning Monday

First full week of school.

That means only two months until full blown winter and fall.

And yes, I'm looking ahead.
