Sautéed Brussel Sprouts

To me, brussel sprouts are mini cabbage yummies that not only taste amazing when sautéed, but they are a good source of protein, iron and potassium. Also, they contain compounds called isothiocyanates [pretty big word there], which not only reduce the risk of heart attacks, but they also may help prevent cancer. Read more here.

DIY Planner Supplies | Easy & Cheap

Hello loves [ and fellow planner addicts],

If you saw my past Friday Faves here, you would see that my 2015 Personal Planner came in the mail and of course, it’s easily become a love affair for me. But can you blame me though? I’m mean look at it! It’s no wonder that I just couldn’t help myself- I had to do a new video all about how I decorate my planner and make extra space.

BTW, if you don’t know what Personal Planner is, you can watch this video where I go into all the deets about my 2014 planner and all the other fun things about this brand.

Lemon Zest Salmon with Fruit Salsa

This past weekend was a very long weekend in Trinidad [Carnival] so of course, that meant some cooking for me. Not surprisingly, it’s something to do with salmon. Honestly, if this wasn’t the only fish I ate, things could be exciting but oh well, I love trying new ways to jazz up my salmon.

Lemon is such a delightful ingredient to add because it gives food such a pop of flavour when used in moderation.

Personal Microderm (PMD) Review

If it’s one thing about me, it’s how chronic I am about my skincare. No really. I guess it stemmed from the fact that I didn’t have good skin in my teens but overtime, with a fixed skincare routine and a genuine interest in my skin, I think I’ve overcome that. Now, I more or less have clear skin for most part of the month [if you know what I mean].

However, the scars remind us that the past is real [ thank you Papa Roach] and that’s not always a good thing, especially if it’s on your face. That’s where this handy little tool called the Personal Microderm aka the PMD comes in.

Little Acts of Kindness

SONY DSC

In our busy day and lives, we often forget about the simple little things- like smiling, wishing someone a good day, giving someone a compliment and the list can go on. This week after coming from work, my hands stacked full with papers to mark [they are still waiting], I was running through the bus terminal to catch a car a few streets away.

I had my shades on and that don’t-talk-to-me-I’m-busy look plastered onto my face as I passed a little old man playing the violin in the hustle and bustle of the city. Now this may be something really familiar to those of you who are living in mega cities where there are subways and all that jazz [literally], but in my tiny country, I never saw someone actually standing and playing an instrument in any terminal. Or it could be that I just don’t get out enough. That’s so not the point though.
