I came across this fragrance for the first time yesterday and my initial reaction was that I really liked it- still I decided to wear it to see its longevity and how the scent changes before actually purchasing it. I was satisfied with the consistency of smell as well as the fact that the scent was still there after a few hours. This is a soft warm fragrance. I know it’s warm right now and probably not the ideal weather for a musky scent, but I do work in an office so it works well. I do however think that this would be a great scent for autumn.

Top Notes:
Raspberry, galbanum, and pink pepper.

Middle Notes:
Egyptian jasmine, freesia, and orris.

Bottom Notes:
Patchouli heart, vanilla absolute, creamy musks, and ambergris.

ALTERNA Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil


I’m known for damaging my hair, every month I lose more and more of it.  I will go from dark to light to lighter to hair falling out and back to dark to try and save it… its like a crazy roller coaster.  This last visit to the salon I went super light.  My hair is so damaged that if I don’t style it with some serious heat I look like freaking Mufasa!  With semi-damaged hair I would use It’s a 10 and Paul Mitchelle’s Super Skinny Serum and my hair would remain tame-  But this time around I needed to shop for something new and I found it.  This product right here is the real deal when it comes to smoothing and de-frizzing my damaged hair.  The result is a silky effect that feels light- not heavy at all like a lot of oils and serums.  Another plus is that it has a really nice scent to it. If you’re suffering from damaged hair, I really recommend this product.  Stop by Sephora and try it for yourself.

Bunch O Balloons!!!! Fill 100 water balloons in less than a minute!

This is amazing.  Josh Malone, a father of eight,  invented a device with a central tube that distributes water to 37 balloons at the same time, with elastic rings that cut off the water supply once the balloons are full. OMG!  I need this.  The kids love water balloons but I can never keep up with how quickly they pop it and come running back for another.  Then my fingers get so sore from tying each of those little slippery buggers.

It’s been a long work week and I am ready for the weekend. Summer is coming to an end so I really want to make the next couple of weekends exciting for the kids. Maybe we’ll go to the zoo or even the beach. Not too sure yet. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Baked Fish Recipe

This meal always takes me back to my childhood. I love that my children love this healthy dish too. The recipe can be used with any type of fish- I used Uhu, but a nice butter fish would be awesome.





Preheat oven at 350.

Clean and Scale fish

Lay fish down in foil lined baking dish

After slicing all of your ingredients add them to pan

Pour oyster sauce evenly over all ingredients (I practically use the whole bottle)

Bake for 30-45 minutes.  I like to flip my fish about 20 minutes through.








Is Chivalry Dead?

This morning I parked in the garage that I park in every morning, sat in my car for a little bit to listen to the rest of a segment on the radio that had me cracking up- I mean what’s better than starting your day off with a good laugh right? Well those couple of minutes caused a butterfly effect that got me into the following situation… As I’m walking to the elevator I hear someone behind me- he’s talking on his phone arguing with someone “I’m already late, I don’t have time to talk this bu**sh** with you right now. Stop f**king calling me!” I thought to myself ‘Oh great! I’m gonna have to get in the elevator with this guy’ No biggie, we were only on the 3rd floor. So I push the button and wait for the elevator. The light on the button is lit meaning it’s been pushed- I say this because I thought everyone knew that when the light is on ITS BEEN PUSHED, but apparently not everyone understands that because Sir Grump-A-Lot decides to step in front of me and push it again. Rolling my eyes, I step back and let him perform his magic trick. The elevator doors finally open and he steps in first… dickhead move right there being that I was there first, but whatever, he’s clearly having a bad morning so I let him be the lady at that moment. He pushes the button to go down to the 1st floor, and keeps pushing it because the doors are taking too long to close and when they do close, he still continues pushing it but now its with the side of his hand and he’s now making “grrr” noises. Holy sh*tballs, what’s this guy on? Hey idiot if you continue to hit that button do you really think it will go into hurry mode – really… To make things worse the elevator stops on the second floor. Another lady walks in (to my relief) and this a**hole says “You gotta be fu**en kidding me” And returns to assaulting the button. So two ladies and a psycho in the elevator, we finally hit the first floor, who gets out first? Yup the psycho- but only after practically running over the lady standing in front of the doors. This jerk took a great morning and had me gritting my teeth in a matter of minutes. It’s so sad that this isn’t the first time I’ve come across men who have no manners around a woman. I hope to god that my sons never act this way in front of women. I will teach them how to always be respectful in the presence of a lady! Please let chivalry not be completely dead!
