Project Tryout: Cooking Fish

Hi Guys,

I have been eating out for a long time and I have been trying new things but even going out to nice restaurants have not made me tried to start cooking at home.There are so many benefits when cooking at home like portion control, expanding my skills while failing, etc. So I needed a kick in the pants to get me started and going to my eye doctor and he suggested because of my dry eyes that I should try eating oilier fish. This time I bought salmon and some black sea bass (sea bass is a lean fish, I was told differently ).

So anyways , here is my attempt at my fish dinner.I bought fish, capers, onion, lime and a lime as well as unsalted butter.
I had the fishmonger scaled and gutted which I wished I had asked for them to de bone it as well. Its hard when you aren’t used to eating bones in your fish. However, with all those ingredients the fish was delicious.

Project Tryout:BirchBox May 2016

Hi Yall,

I am here with a Birchbox May 2016.  I really liked this box even though I opened it and immediately had in mind items that I had to give away. They would not have suited me.
So on to the box contents.
1. Amika Perk Up Dr Shampoo ( Gave away)
2. Coola SPF 50 Sport Mango
3. K Los Skincare Triple threat Dextox masque
4. Model Co Lip Lacquer Viva (gave away)
5. Real chemistry Luminous 3 minute peel for body

I really can not wait to try the real chemistry 3 minute peel for the body. I love exfoliates.However, I am quite upset that I had to give two products away right off the bat, like i knew these were not for me.
Did you receive a May Birchbox, what do you think?
Check out the photo.

Random: Weekend recap

Hi Y’all,

Long time no post. I have so much and so little that happened over the weekend.
I went to IMATS NYC . I know I was not originally supposed to go but I went with my cousin. I definitely did not spend the money that I have spent at past Imats conventions.To me doing this has really killed the need to buy more makeup. I am only waiting on the triple points so I can buy a Foreo Luna.
On Sunday, I went to a Hillary Clinton Rally. I was there to support my mom who in the end only wanted a photo.
Check out the photos. If you would like more in depth photos check out my Instagram profile reddiva83.

Project 10 pan: Perfume Empties

Hi y’all ,
I really am not concentrating on perfumes but in order to buy more in project 10 pan land you have to use one to buy one.
1.Tocca Florence. I love this fragrance on me and so does my mom. I think its a clean scent. I would purchase the full size.
2.Versace Absolu. Delicious. Another Reddiva83 approved fragrance. I will purchase the scent
3. Dolce and Gabbana Pour Femme. I think this is quite a soft sensual scent. I originally bought it to go out with but I decided there isn’t any day like the present.
4. Victor &Rolf Flowerbomb. This smells awesome, it become my go to work scent. However, I found I could not smell it at the end of the day but that may be because I have dry skin.
5.Dolce and Gabbana the One .I am a fan of Dolce and Gabbana. I love their fragrances.I find this particular scent to be warm. I threw in my garbage bag because it was going bad.
6. Chloe parfum. I am in love. You all know I am in love with rose scents. Chloe is a powdery rose scent by their standards. My mom thinks its smells soapy.I like the scent and will purchase it.
7. Prada candy. This is the first full size perfume that i purchased in a while. My actual very first real perfume was Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue . I love this sweet scent. It can be an everyday scent or it can be a night out scent and I like it. I would purchase it again.
8. Balenciaga Florabotanica. I first found out about this scent when I chose it as a sample then I bought it as a gift for my mom and then as recommended to my former supervisor. She loved it and I loved the scent on both of them so, I decided to get it for myself. I now have people complimenting me telling me they love how soft I smell.
9. Versace Bright Crystal. I love this so much I went out and bought the rollerball. After I finish my full size Lancôme scent ,I will go buy the full size of this perfume. ( i am sorry , i could not find the empty…. waaa. )
I also have some perfumes samples that I gave away:
1. Marc Jacobs Daisy
2. English laundry Number 7
3. Harvey Prince Yogini
4 Harvey Prince Petaly Noir
