Colourful and simple

My lunch for today. It's simple bright and colourful. 
A turkey wrap with edamame beans on the side, eating healthy doesn't have to be boring and tiresome.
Find fun ways to spice up your everyday meals, this is just one example.

Easter Watercolour Nails

I'm posting these very late but here are my Easter watercolour nails. I wanted to try something different from the normal baby chick and Easter egg designs that I normally would have. This is a really simple way to get a colourful look on your nails. I started with dotting 4 pastel colours and smudging it around with saran wrap to get the desired effect. The best part is it looks like you put a lot of effort into it and it's not messy. A win-win! I used a matte topcoat to change it up.

Sheinside and Missguided Review

Shopping online has kind of become my new found love. I love finding deals and added different styles to my wardrobe that's not in store in Toronto yet. I've recently done some shopping online from two different stores Sheinside and Missguided. I read reviews before deciding to make a purchase. Many reviews I've read about Sheinside were not the best, some ranging from never receiving their purchase to bad service. Thankfully I had the opposite experience and will shop there again. Sheinside has fashion from Asia and there also a bit more ahead of the fashion trends than North America. Missguided is a online store more closer to home located in North America. They have cute finds for a good price and their sales are also really good. Both promise shipping of less than two weeks. I received both 10 days after I made my order. I loved what I got and they are true to size. Will definitely shop at both of these online stores again.

These two tops are from Sheinside.

Chicken Diablo

Here is a new recipe I made up from everything I could find in my fridge. 
Left over chicken is one of the best things you can have in your kitchen it's so versatile and can be made into anything and incorporated into any recipe.
Today I have my newest recipe inspired by Chef Micheal Simon, it's called chicken diablo.
I took leftover chicken added some veggies (anything in your fridge) and a sauce of you choice I used a bit of tomato paste and seasoning.
It's very versatile and can be curved to the taste you like.

Colourful Daisy Nails

I actually created these nails last year and I recently found the pictures and decided why not.
The fit with the theme of spring and Easter.
I used pastel colours and a toothpick to create the petals. 
The weather in Toronto is crazy it was actually SNOWING yesterday. So much for Spring.
Thanks for reading and try out this cute design.

Toronto to the Bronx

 Over the weekend my family went down to the Bronx to deal with some family stuff, I won't get into details but I thought here is an opportunity to get some pictures of the trip there. I got most of these pics from my cousin, sadly I couldn't go because I had too much school left to do since it's my last week of winter semester (Cheers for the last week of school!).
Above is the Brooklyn bridge, it was a very dreary and sad looking day.
