Chickpeas can be such a divisive little legume, you either like it or hate it. Even when you like it, you might only like it one certain way (roasted) and not another (garlic and caramalised onion hummus).
For me, I actually really like roasted chickpeas, but only a few at a time so it doesn’t turn into dry, thick paste in my mouth. I also love garlic hummus but not that fond of plain hummus.
However, today I thought I’d give you a sweet and savory option if you want to give chickpeas another go, or want to scoff down a quick and easy snack.
For the sweet option I’m going to do just a simple maple syrup and for savory we’re going to get friendly with some seasonings. The great thing about both of these are that they are easily customisable, so if you want spices and a little heat, you can easily do that, or if you’re more into a honey-maply concoction, that’s super easy too.
Hey guys, welcome back! How are you? That’s good! I’m back with a beauty-based post to start our April off and -spoiler alert- this won’t be about getting Botox or rubbing jellyfish on your face. It’s going to be easier and realistic ways that you might not have thought about if you’re looking to appear younger.
I do want to preface this with why we’re doing this kind of post. Last month I was scrolling through Twitter and a certain thread reminded me of a customer I had years ago for a certain brand at a certain department store. This customer and the Twitter user felt their thin brows aged them and were wondering how you start growing thicker brows out after 10+ years of extreme plucking.
I decided that if this is something that’s been actively searched for on a daily basis but there are small things anyone can do to help them take some years off (or, more importantly, feel better about themselves), and I have some tips, I should share them. You might find you’ve tried all of them or find them redundant, but I hope something helps someone out there.
As I will be on holiday for March, I wanted to leave you all with another beauty-based post! I actually had some discontinued but never used makeup products I still want to show in a post, and since there are so many makeup companies and millions of products out there, there are constantly products that are discontinued because they didn’t have the right marketing to get the word out successfully, including a new brand or line of products that are obsessed about and others fall off the radar. Or on the other end of the spectrum, they were just bad products.
We’re going to look at three products from three different brands and we’ll see if they were missed holy grails or a complete waste of time.
Note: These products are discontinued (from approx. 2016-2017) and, thus, possibly expired or close to expiry, which can affect the scent. I doubt these products will separation or that type of rancidity issues.
Any signs of expiry will be taken into consideration when reviewing.
Wow, our first makeup review for 2019! I’ve been rummaging through some of my things and found this little duo from Nars in shades Cruella and Rikugien!
Believe it or not, I haven’t had much time playing with Nars; sure I have the Orgasm blush, played with the Creamy Concealor and I like the shades available in their Multiple sticks, but that’s really it.
So today I’m really excited to look at two of their lip products, in particular, their lipstick pencils. While it’s a packaging move you don’t see much of, me and my tiny lips actually like lipstick pencils as it gives you the coverage of a normal lipstick with more of the application ease of a lip liner.
Let’s look into it a bit more.
First off I just want to thank you all for your patience while I was gone. We are back to scheduled programming.. which I guess is my awful time management of this site!
I thought the best slide-back-into-your-lives post would be in the form of a smooth and crispy, salty and sweet snack using two ingredients that are the building block of Greek cuisine: feta and filo/phyllo pastry.
I was getting a new post ready for you, however, I’ve received some news about an overseas friend that passed away yesterday so I’m just taking a few days to get my head together, but we’ll be back soon.
