Some Great Food & Great Company!

Who knew eating with your hands cold be so much fun & amazing! I have only eaten Ethiopian food once before -years back when my dad worked in DC & we visited him. Internet people, if you guys have never had Ethiopian food, go out today and get you some!

A few friends of ours decided to go on a triple date & went to Ethiopian Diamond & it was so good! At first the menu looks a bit intimidating because I had no idea what anything was. Luckily everyone order something different and everyone enjoyed their food, which tells me that everything on their menu is delicious!

Honestly I think I was most excited about eating with my hands! I love trying new foods and feel especially like a winner when said new foods taste amazing as well!

My Other Half

A person takes many paths in life, in my opinion, this is how we grow. Many times we go on our journey alone, other times we go on our journeys with other people. However, along the road, if we are lucky, we find someone to share our journey with. Someone who, not only is there for support, but also there to go on the journey along side you to also grow with you. I’m not sure if I am making any sense to you all. If you have that person in your life, then you know.

Anywho, I am so very grateful for my other half, Kat! We’ve been on this journey together for what seems like forever, I’ve seen us grow so much with each other. I am sure I would not be the person I am today, at this very moment, without her. I’ve been able to get through so many personal struggles because I have her there with me, supporting me. We’ve had our moments of craziness, but we have always been able to come out the other side better and stronger for each other. I am so excited for what these next years will bring for us. I know that whatever it is, we will do it together! Kat, thank you for all you have taught me so far, I love you lots.

I’ve Been Dying To Try These Brushes! 

So these oval brushes are all the craze right now. I feel like everyone on YouTube who does makeup has used them in their videos at least once! So, of course I had to try them! The only thing that stopped me at first was the price for them from the company that first came out with these, Artis Brushes. Each one of these brushes costs about $70 and for the complete set it was close to around $500! Of course I was not going to be able to afford them, so I decided to buy my set of brushes from Zaful at a grand total price of $20 for a set of ten!

Now, I do not know how well the Artis brushes work, but the ones I bought seemed to work fine with me. They blended my foundation on my face perfectly and evenly. I did not have any swipe lines on my face from the brushes. They were also pretty fluffy and smooth. I would definitely recommend these brushes as a great dupe to the Artis brushes.


Don’t mind my face in these shots, my forehead breaks out when I am under stress & I also haven’t done a face mask on myself in a very long time. I think it is time for a spa night for myself.

Final look. 😀

A Refreshing Hair Mask For Growing & Strengthening Your Hair 

With Summer being right around the corner, I started the process of lightening my hair. Anyone who has ever colored their hair knows that it will damage your hair, especially if you are going lighter! To help repair and lengthen my hair, I started using a hair masks out of Coconut oil and castor oil once a week. This helped with keeping my hair soft and healthy after my color treatment. Recently, I started using essential oils in my everyday life, and so I decided to use essential oils in my hair masks as well.

This last week has been a very emotional week for Kat & me and I have been feeling very fatigued and with low spirits. Because of this, I wanted to give myself a small spa feeling that would leave me refreshed and rejuvenated. For making this hair mask, I combined three carrier oils: the Trader Joe’s coconut oil, doTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil and Castor oil (to help with hair growth) and two essential oils: Wild Orange to lift up my mood and energy & Peppermint to awaken and give me a refreshing feeling. I combined all the oils and rubbed it all over my scalp going down to my hair ends. Once I felt like I spread it evenly across my hair, I combed out my hair to spend it even more evenly.

This is how my hair looks once I am done. I then just leave my hair like this for the rest of the day and wash my hair the following morning.
