If you're not sure what you are going to be for halloween and you have no time to buy your costume or you simply dont want to spend money for a costume.... This Black Kitty is simple and u can wear any black dress you have... 

 There are several tutorials on YouTube you can find.... you can simply research for a quick halloween costume without leaving your home and not spending any bucks =)



I am still thinking what i am going to be this Halloween.  The anime eyes are cute, so i tried it on my eyes (eyes closed) this is what it looks like:

All you need for this look are:
  • Black liquid eyeliner
  • White eye liner
  • Fake lashes
  • Pink Blush 
  • Pink Lipstick (any shade of pink you like)




Countdown to Halloween, BEGINS!!
So yah, I'm almost done makin my costume for Halloween.  I'm pretty sure you already have an idea what i am going to be..... I bought some materials for my costume at art and craft store (JoAnn) except for the wig that i purchased online from Amazon that cost me $15.99 including shipping. 

Here's a sneak peek:

Cotton Candy, big lollipop, headband with heart attached and cupcake rings

Cotton candy: Is made from spider web i got from halloween store and spray paint it with powder pink to make it look like a cotton candy.
Big lollipop: from Walgreens
Headband with heart attached: all from dollar tree (purple ribbon, heart box)
I also went to Michael's art and craft store and picked up rhinestones and purple glitters.
Cupcake rings: they're from Claire's. They're actually lipgloss and i purchased plastic rings and glued them together.

Lime Garlic Chicken with Two-Bean Bell Pepper Salad

2 teaspoons fresh thyme, leaves only or a few dash thyme powder (because that's what i have in the pantry)
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs or thin cut breast
1 teaspoon adobo with pepper
1 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
salt and pepper

Here's the Steps
  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place butter in pan, then add shallots and garlic; cook and stir 2–3 minutes or until garlic begins to soften.
  2. Season both sides of chicken with adobo and salt and pepper. Arrange chicken in pan; cook 4–5 minutes, without turning, or until lightly browned.
  3. Turn chicken; add broth, lime juice, and thyme leaves. Reduce heat to medium and cover; cook and stir 5–7 minutes or until chicken is 165°F.
  4. Remove chicken from pan; cover to keep warm. Increase heat to medium-high; cook sauce 4–5 minutes (uncovered) or until sauce begins to thicken. Return chicken to pan, turning to coat with sauce, and serve.

1 (15-oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
8 oz pre-diced tri-color bell peppers (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup pre-sliced green onions
1/4 cup mojo marinade (optional) I don't have this so i skipped it

Photo taken outside.

Photo taken indoor
My bathroom doesn't have the best lighting.. I will make some more photos outside so you can see the result =)

Fall is here again!! New season, New hair color! 

PRODUCT I USED (Salon Quality) =)

L'oreal Preference "Mega Browns" Level 6 in Cinnamon $5.49
Salon Care Professional 20 Volume Creme Developer $1.59
Color Applicator $1.69
Hair Clips
Cling Wrap
L'oreal Feria Professional Color Moisturizing Treatment $2.49
Gloves $2.79

ALL products were purchased at Sally's Beauty Supply. It's inexpensive, i love the result and my hair is softer and smoother. They have a wide selection of hair color to choose from. I picked up the L'oreal Preference "Mega Browns" Level 6 in Cinnamon.  I spent $20 for all the products.  We all know that going to the salon is expensive, I have time to do it myself so why would i spend my money at the salon? eh?!?!

This is how your mixture should look like:
First, pour 2 oz of Volume 20 Creme Developer in the applicator bottle
then pour in the hair color (2 0z)

This is the first thing i poured in the applicator bottle.

I purchased 2 bottles of hair color, i used one bottle for my entire hair!

Read labels/instructions properly

Start applying on the roots towards the end of the hair, i like to do it section by
section. Use a rat tail comb to section your hair and to distribute the product in your hair.
I was thinking of making a video but it's too messy, i don't want dye on my camcorder =/

You can see all the mess on the sink.... pretty messy huh?!

Cover your hair with cling wrap for 1 hr and 30 mins.

voila! rinse hair with water (do not shampoo) and use a good after coloring conditioner
I used L'oreal Feria Professional Color Moisturizing Treatment! Shampoo your hair the next day or couple of days after.
