So I hate admitting that when I was younger I wasn’t as careful about how I took care of my make up or my make up brushes. Since we use our brushes every day sometimes it slips your mind to clean our tools. Bacteria build up on make up brushes can cause break outs and germ growth so it is important that your brushes are cleaned regularly.
I wanted to touch a little on my relationships. The moving point in the timeline of my tumultuous love life has finally reached a point where there is no drama and an abundance of healthy love. I look back on many of past relationships with proverbial 20/20 hindsight and think “why was I so stuck?” just to remember that those relationships, as much of a wreck as they were, have gifted me some of the most important life lessons I’ve learned.
Update: I no longer practice at a studio, I have a personal practice at home and I’ve started teaching practice forum classes on the weekends and private lessons at my loft.
Sometimes with so many tasks on my todo list, responsibilities, and want to do’s my head starts to spin at how many things I am trying to juggle, how many emotions I am trying to manage, and not to mention all of the dizzying random personal thoughts that run through my head.
After a fun and tiring weekend of work-social events, bar hopping, and Sunday afternoon bloody-maries I woke up with terrible bags under my eyes that I had never seen before.
I’m a huge fan of stuffed bell peppers because there are so many combinations of ingredients you can use to make them and they can be very healthy depending on the ingredients you use. I had purchased ground turkey this week from the local market and I decided to make a variation of the Spicy Thai Basil recipe — Spicy Thai Basil stuffed bell peppers with rice.
This week I attempted one of my thai restaurant favorites: sticky rice with mangoes. It’s kind of a perfect dessert because its not overbearing but its savory enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. *Some tips for this recipe: Use riper mangos, and use the water that you soak the sticky rice in to cook it.
