A surprise in the mail via Goodreads

I love getting mail, I love the surprise of opening your own mail and pulling out something new. 
I recently was sent this from the author Christina Moore. I entered a contest on Goodreads to receive this book which I was sent before it's public release to review for the author. I love helping out a upcoming author and I love reading new books so its a win - win situation for those involved. 
The book is called Beautiful Death, look for a future review or follow me on Goodreads for more. 
Thanks for reading!

Snakes and Lattes

It was my girls birthday and since we were all kinda busy but still wanted to hang for a bit. She decided to take us to this really cool restaurant on Bloor street downtown Toronto. It's called snakes and lattes. It's a really chill place were for $5 you can play any board game for as long as you want, have some lattes and kick your friends butts. Really liked it, it was fun and pretty cheap, they had hundreds of board game and the staff are down to Earth. Try this place out, you won't regret it.
Thanks for reading

Lush Christmas Collection 2013

Lush is my secret addiction and surprising not many people in Toronto actually know about it. 
I went to get a face mask only to be introduced to their new holiday winter collection and it was love at first sight.Plus I felt like spending some of my hard earned cash and treated myself and my sister to these lovelies below.

 This is the Rudolph fresh face mask and the Santa's lip scrub

The coolest part about this lip scrub which I didn't know (first lip scrub from Lush) it's all edible and it taste like cherry coke which little hearts, how bomb is that! 
Price - $8.95
Main Ingredients - cherries, dates, coconut oil 
And it's currently out of stock online!

The Rudolph face mask is very hydrating and there's a little cherry in the middle to symbolize Rudolph red nose. Isn't just adorable! This face mask is very hydrating which is exactly what I need for this Canadian winter. My face gets very dry.
Price - $6.95
Life - $ weeks
Limited edition
Uses - At least 10 or more
Main Ingredients - cucumber, lavender, oatmeal, aloe & fresh mint

Homemade Pretzels

Happy December!
It's been a very busy week and it's only going to get crazier as the terms ends and exams start. Also everything just gets a little bit more hectic with the holidays fast approaching.
On to the post!

So when those cold winter nights hit and you want something warm to eat thats not heavy and works great with tea, how about a pretzel.

My brother taught me how to make these from his cooking class and the best part you can make them just the way you like.
We made two types a garlic, herb butter pretzel and a sesame pretzel.
It takes about 10mins in the oven and the secret here is to brush some baking powder-water mixture on top to help them brown faster.

 Delicious and simple.

Pineapple Raspberry Parfait

This is my go to breakfast when I'm running late for school or a snack before my workout. The best part is this can be made in advance, you can take it on the go and it's so simple and can easily be changed to your preference.
This is usually $5 when you buy it but for that price you can get all the ingredients and make 7 for that price.

This morning in my parfait I had raspberries, pineapple chunks and my fav some chopped walnuts.
Hope you try this out, and thanks for reading!

Dandelion Manicure

A fun and simple manicure that you can do in less than 5 minutes. 
It's a cute fall design with dandelions blowing in the wind.
I used recycle by china glaze for the base and a black stripper for the stem and a thin white stripper for the fluffy dandelion top. Ohh i nearly forgot I also put on a matte top coat which I liked a lot better than my usually glossy finish.  This can work on both short nails and long nails.
Try it out for yourself. Enjoy!

Fish tail Braid

One of my favorite and simple hair styles to keep hair out of my face since the weather here in Toronto is now in the negatives. Brr its hard to wake up and when I'm in a rush this is my go to hair style. Easy and fast.Just like how you would braid your hair except you part you hair into two pieces and then take small pieces from one side and add in to the next and keep going back and forth. It takes a while, I mean it took a couple tries for me to even get it too look decent.. lol. 
Thanks for readings, happy Tuesday.

Eggplant Parmigiana

My first attempt at creating this delicious dinner. I saw the recipe on "The Chew" and I had to try it out. It's a simple recipe and easy to execute. Once you have assembled all the ingredients and soften the eggplant in a pan just slip it in the oven for 20 mins and go about your day. Very delicious and fast, definitely going to make this for dinner again.

Ruffian Nails

A fun fall mani that has a sophisticated edge and a clean look. I loved this design but I didn't think it would look good on me. Nor am I a fan of dark colours on me but with this design you can easily change up the colours depending on your mood. 
I went for a festive fall look that reminded me of the leaves on the trees and longer dark nights. 
This was a fun and simple mani and I hope you try it out for yourself. I used three colours and a matte top coat on the black to add something extra to the manicure.
