I think its very exciting to write posts ever since I got back from the Blogger festival. I feel like I have a handful of new readers. And I admit I have been a “bad” blogger in that I have yet to update all my recipes! I’ve been so busy since I took a few days off work for the trip and I have a lot of lesson plans and recipes to write for my cooking elementary school cooking class.
Anyhow, I got a lot of very flattering comments at foodbuzz. Its weird getting ACTUAL VERBAL comments as opposed to the one on the blog. Because although there were a few about my blog a lot were about my hair, clothes, cheek bones (yea, apparently they are well-defined or something like that), and I suppose my wit.
I can’t give you recommendation on how to improve or acquire wit (that takes years of practice and humiliation). But there are things I do use that can help you achieve the “Eden” look, or actually, the “you” to the “Eden” power:
The Givenchy Phenomen’ (I can’t prononce it for the life of me) Eyes Mascara:
I stink at putting on mascara, and you would think that a “ball” instead of the usual cylinder shaped wand would make it more difficult. However, I find this way easier and my lashes never looked so long. I dont wear much make-up and I dont see the need with just a good swipe of this mascara.
The Laundress Detergents:
I need to give my roommate some credit for this. You see, she loves clothes. So much so she is a pro at cleaning them. This line is hypoallergenic, gets rid of pesky stains, smells “clean” (not like a waterfall), and best of all, is not sold on an infomercial. You can buy them online or if you are in LA, at Covet.
Nars Blush in Orgasm:
This one is a bestseller for good reason. And I will admit I was blessed with shapely cheeks, but this brings it to a whole other level. Totally brightens your face and seriously does give you that “I’ll have what she’s having” look. (I know, I’m nasty).
Tilex S-40 round brush:
My hairdresser recommended I get it and its brilliant! I only spent about ten bucks on it and I will never need use a curling iron. It makes soft curls, not stiff, little school girl ones. Amanda kept telling me how nice my hair looked at food buzz and I owe it to that brush!
The chi flat iron: I dont use flat irons often. But again, my style savvy roomie introduced me to this iron and we use the hell out of it. I love it because it doesn’t fry my hair. And lord knows, I dye my hair so often, I really need to be careful so it looks healthy. I’m also the queen of all clumsiness, so I burn my hair in a second with a hot piece of metal. But even I have yet to burn my hair with this. The carpet…….is another story (it was left on the whole say by accident).
There you have it. Some of my inedible essentials. I actually have way more which I might post next week.
What are your inedible essentials???
I wanted to test run some thanksgiving recipes. I was attempting to make a pumpkin/cornbread type thing that was also gluten free. For the pumpkin cornbread, you will need:
-1/3 cup corn flour
-1/2 cup canned pumpkin
-1/2tsp baking powder
-pinch of salt
-1 packet of stevia or sweetener of choice (honey works well)
so simple. Combine everything and mix with these pricy tools
Bake at 400 degrees for about 35 min. shut the oven and let them cool in the oven for an extra 5-10 minuets. If you like them moist, you can just take them out after the 35 minuets. I think this makes enough for one or maybe two people so feel free to double or quadruple it!
