Happy Wednesday, everyone! I love the days leading up to a holiday at the office. Not only does work start to wind down, but everyone is just in an overall great mood. People are smiling more than usual, and you can hear laughter echoing down the hallway as colleagues exchange holiday plans. Continue reading
Happy Sunday! I’ve mentioned it before but I’ll say it again, I love California weather. It’s one of the few places where I can wear tank tops in the middle of fall and the sun shines brighter after a day of rain fall. Continue reading
Hi! Last weekend I picked over 100 bright red cayenne peppers and I used them to make two types of hot sauces: fried cayenne garlic sauce and cayenne hot sauce. Both recipes are shared below. I hope you all enjoy them!
Fried Cayenne Garlic Sauce
It’s easy to get lost in my own word when I let my life get so busy. Every day I rush out to work, curse at the traffic I spend one hour sitting in, and spend the whole day inside a building only to come out to greet the moon. Even then I am still in a rush to get home, make dinner, and sleep only to do it all again the next day. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do but I have certain days where I just want to sit in the park and stare into space, you know?
Last weekend, David and I had one of those days so we took a stroll around my neighborhood to admire the changing leaves. The colors ranged from yellow to bright red. I’ve never seen anything so beautiful, so I decided, why not snap some pictures.
I have been on a hunt for a cute, but comfortable pair of combat boots for my wide feet since last fall. After two months for unsuccessful searches, I was about to give up. Then my sister added combat boots to her 2012 Christmas list, and this reminded me of how much I wanted my own pair. I continued to try on boots from my favorite brands from DSW, Nordstrom, Macys, Aldo, and so on but the boots were either too narrow around the toes or too bulky by the ankle. Even my go-to brand Bandolino, who usually has a large selection of wide-width shoes, failed me. So the search continues.

Hello! Just dropping by to give a quick update on my garden. Everything is growing a lot slower due to the weather change, but there’s definitely progress.
Here is the start of my fall red cabbage and lettuce laced between cilantro, garlic, and green onion to keep pests out. Are the herbs successful in keeping the bugs out? Yes and no. They keep most of the bugs out but there are a few stubborn aphids that sneak into the center of the lettuces. When I catch these pests, I just brush them off. Continue reading
Everywhere I turn, I spy another graphic sweater! It’s hard not to fall in love with these sweaters. Not only are they fun, but they are extremely cute. Here Continue reading
Hello! Happy Monday everyone! Today I play with some “business-like” attire. My wardrobe consist mostly of casual wear, but once in a while I like to play dress up. Since most of my time is spent at in a laboratory, I hardly ever need to spend big bucks on business wear. I found this Ann Taylor skirt in a thrift store in a size 2P. I wear a size 00P at AT, but for $5, I couldn’t pass it up. I took it home, tore it apart, and resewed it to make it a tighter fit. I took this outfit to dinner with the bf. Continue reading
Hello and good morning! Just stopping by to share a quick recipe the bf and I tried with our summer zucchinis. The muffins turned out pretty good, crunchy on the outside and super moist on the inside. As the zucchini cooked, it created soft pockets within the muffin, giving it more moisture. I love it!
Here is the recipe the bf followed, zucchini muffin. Raisins were omitted in our recipe. Enjoy!
Last year I found this sweater at Old Navy. Old Navy carries cute items but sometimes the clothes are a bit overpriced for the quality, so I find it more satisfying to purchase at a discount or when there is a sale. I like that they carry a large supply of petite pieces. I have come across kid items that fit me nicely here, so you definitely have to do some digging.
