Call it cliche but sometimes the most mundane gives me utmost joy and satisfaction. For example, for the last two weeks I have been cooking nothing but healthy meals, making my own smoothie, baking bread, and even making dairy-free mango gelato. Quite a feat for someone who works a daily 10-hr job .
You can see my vegan chili on this video. I have also caught up with Season 1 of Queen of the South on Netflix, I can’t believe I finished all of 13 episodes in two days! As soon as I am done writing this post, I will start watching Season 2. I can’t get enough of Alice Braga and Peter Gadiot, the emotions they evoke on-screen make my weekend binge-watching a truly pleasurable one. I am not going to spoil it for you but if you like action with a bit of drama doused in between, this series which was adapted from a novel detailing the rise and fall of drug cartel, will be worth your while. *PR sample below*
I have been particularly careful when it comes to introducing new skincare products to my simplified regimen, that is after a nasty breakout brought about by my never-ending “try this and that, blogger-induced skin irritation”. I’m glad to say that my skin did not have any untoward reaction to Derma-E Illuminating Rosehip and Cranberry Face Oil. I use it two ways: either as final step to skincare (after moisturizer) or mix a drop or two to either of these moisturizers, Sulwhasoo or eltaMD Barrier Complex. I prefer to use it at night for extra hydration. It’s vegan and cruelty-free, plus it is decently priced for less than $20.
Husband is currently feasting on leftover of this vegan zucchini bread. You will see how I made it in the upcoming video so please subscribe to my Youtube channel if you haven’t yet.
Lastly, I have also been incorporating more colors (to my predominantly black wardrobe) and dresses (to my otherwise boring same-ole-pants style). Talk about mundane because I derived inspiration from my lipstick stash, what on earth woman?!
