Broccoli Lasagna Rolls

Broccoli Lasagna Rolls

Going to be 100% honest. I don't cook. I mean I do cook, it's mandatory to make food in some way and feed the family. OKAY, I am LEARNING to cook and bake things. Surprisingly things are coming out edible. NOT sure how considering I get distracted by the Boys. (3 all 8 years and younger if you didn't already know)

SO, I can across this idea on the oh so wonderful PINTREST! yes. It actually has a use. I just didn't PIN ... I MADE my Pin. yay! me. a score for being semi productive. Justifying my non productive habit of pinning and making it productive!

Here is what me making this dish actually looks like. .... via Instagram. Because I had cream cheese all over my fingers and Dare I not put those grubby cream cheese fingers on my nice Nikon. 

 P.S. I really need to step up my House wife skills and start wearing pearls all day. Add shopping for a wicked awesome apron. I ready. I'm ready.

"The gemstone Garnet is the official birthstone for January as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the stone for the Zodiac sign Aquarius. See the birthstone tables for additional references to this stone and garnet birthstone jewelry for more information and links to handmade jewelry with garnets.
Garnet may be given as a gem on the 2nd and 6th wedding anniversary.
Garnet occurs in every color except blue and most varieties are named for their color. Rhodolite is a purplish red, hessonite is the name for an orange, cinnamon, or pinkish variety. Tsavorite is the name given to dark green grossularite. Uvarovite and demantoid are also green varieties.

Pyrope garnets are purplish red, orangy red, crimson, or dark red. Spessartite garnets range from yellow and orange through red to reddish brown to dark black/brown. Color change garnets exhibit a "alexandrite-like" effect when viewed in natural light or artificial lighting.

Garnets range from a 7.0 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness and are found in the U.S. (Arizona), South Africa, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Myanmar (Burma), Scotland, Switzerland and Tanzania . Garnets are formed when high temperatures and/or pressure is a factor and geologists often use garnets as a gauge of the amount of temperature and pressure that was present during their formation.

Garnet's powers include healing, strength, and protection and it is often worn to relieve inflammations of the skin. It is also believed to regulate the heart and blood flow and aid in curing depression. In earlier times, garnets were exchanged as gifts between friends to demonstrate their affection for each other and to insure that they meet again."

Sole Society Shoe Club Review


Sole Society allows you to discover the latest trends, share your personal style, recommend shoes to friends, and follow the curated collections of top fashion insiders."

My review of The Sole Society Shoe Club.
I have been looking to join a shoe club for a long time now BUT I don't like to make a monthly financial commitment. I heard about Sole Society from 
Sole Society requires you to join as a member. Membership is free and once you are a member you have access to their shoe selection as well as fashion insiders. There selection is smaller than other monthly shoe clubs, BUT again there is no obligation to buy or enter that you would like to SKIP this month. You buy when you like. WHICH I enjoy very much. I think the price is reasonable for the products they provide. Some of the styles look very familiar to other designers but who doesn't look to other brands for inspiration. I have personally had no issues with product quality or any issues with the customer service. I do urge anyone interested in purchasing from Sole Society to be AWARE of their return policies. Some Promo's such a BOGO are final sale. 

I threw together a CURRENT selection of my Favorite Sole Society Shoes. this is as of 1/09/12  .. So if you are checking this blog post at later date. Size and color availability may change.

SO ... What did I think of Kiss Nail Dress. I actually really like Kiss Nail Dress. The price is reasonable and they are super easy to apply.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine Product Review

"Have you heard the gossip? There’s a new gloss in town! NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine is getting headlines with seriously high-drama color at a seriously low price. Pure pigments give a 3-D effect that’s off-the-charts glossy. Tons of hot new shades, from preppy nudes to bold statement hues – all for less than your weekly fashion magazine. "

I was very happy to try out the NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine gloss which was included in the Influenster HolidayVoxBox. NYC lip gloss is super affordable, smells amazing and is a long lasting lip gloss. Unsure yet if it will replace my Astor hydrating lip gloss but I'll be sure to keep it handy. Thanks so much Influenster and NYC New York Color !!!

Goody QuikStyle Product Review

  • Goody website:
  • The GOODY® QUIKSTYLE™ Paddle brush works like a towel and brush in one. The super absorbent (and antimicrobial) microfiber removes 30% of water from wet hair to help speed your drying time! You can effortlessly de-tangle right out of the shower and continue using it while you blow dry!
  • I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program

Hey look it's ME and my own awesome photos of my Goody QuickStyle.  : ) I honestly HATE brushing my hair or blow drying. I usually CRY like a big baby when I force myself to Blow out my thick hair. Blow drying my hair can take up to an hour IF not longer. Can you imagine. yeah, an hour, now you  know why I cry. 

When it comes to the Goody QuickStyle paddle brush, I am so thankful. After towel drying my hair, I brushed my hair out and dried it using my new brush. This cut my blow dry time down twenty minutes. YAY! I tweeted. Gave away my original brush to my little neice (who also cries when she gets her wet hair brushed) Bought myself another QuickStyle Paddle Brush. Facebooked. Shared more on Instagram. Finding a new product that you like is worth sharing. So for gals that LOVE beauty on a budget. Check out the Goody QuickStyle Brush  : )

 Got to LOVE LOVE LOVE photos of real gals with no make up! and Dark roots.
