DIY : Dinner : Buttermilk Rustic Herbed Breaded Chicken


What you will need :

What you need :
Bread Crumbs
Whole Milk
Lemon Juice
Rustic Herb Seasoning ( TS ) 

Using my marinater I got Christmas, I added 3 cups of Milk and 3 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice and 1 Tablespoon of Rustic Herb Seasoning.  I marinated this meat for 9 am til about 2 pm . I used panko bread crumbs, and traditional bread crumbs.  I was not happy with over all appearance of the bread chicken with panko.
While it had amazing flavor it was not as appealing. While I normally use traditional breading, I was trying to change it up . The meal has such an great flavor. I will be experimenting more with other Tastefully Simple products

Overall the meal was good. I paired this meal with instant mash potatoes and creamed corn.

Why I Can No Longer Drink Caffeinated Drinks ?


           While on a diet, I was in taking so much caffeine. I wasn't able to sleep, I was drinking about 3 to 4 cups of coffee a day. And the diet that I was on at that time utilized some caffeine as well. I was able to cook, clean and have a spotless house. 

While I was able to run everything, I never realized that I was ingesting so much caffeine. And it just going on unnoticed by my family and myself. Prior to this incident, I was just drinking if at all one cup of coffee a day. 

I have been living a decaffeinated life, for about 2 months now. Thankfully, I can still drink some sodas, not many but at least I have my favorite Sangria soda & Ginger Ale & Hot teas !  


While this story, is short  I hope that maybe another coffee drinker or caffeine person might read it .  Just keep you eyes , and watch how many coffee you drink. 

       Here are some Facts : 

Decaf coffee from Starbucks contains 15–30 mg of caffeine, depending on cup size. Bottom Line: An 8-oz, brewed coffee from Starbucks contains 180 mg of caffeine. A single espresso and espresso-based drinks contain 75 mg, while an 8-oz cup of decaf coffee contains about 15 mg of caffeine

Butterfly By Jade S


See Me Soar
See Me Flutter
See me glisten in the rain 

Watch me grow and expand 
Feel my wings
No need to catch the butterfly 
It will just fly around 
You never know where it might land

Deep and Lost By Jade S.


   Deep and Lost 
I wonder about Love 
I hear noises
I see visions
I want Love & Respect

I am Deep and Lost
I pretend to be happy 
I feel curious
I reach out 
I worry for a Life
I cry over lost things

I am deep and lost 
I understand Lies Run Deep
I have faith for change
I dream of living on my own 
I try to push and fight for things
I hope that things will work out 
I am deep and lost.

Product Review : L'Bri The Aloe Gal With Nichola F.


Here are all my sample I received ! 

I  spoke with Nichola prior to receiving my samples. So she knew what my skin was doing at the time. She is very knowledge about her products. It was red, pimples, and dry. So I received the following samples : 

Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub 
Intense Moisture Creme
Gentle Cleanser 
Gentle Refresher 
Facial Masque 

All these samples smell amazing let me tell you!  Also no matter which cleanser or face scrub I used my skin tingled after wards. But it did not hurt at all. It was very soothing for me. As I know each time I cleaned my face with these products my rosacea I had was going away little by little. 

Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub 
It is grainy, but it has a nice smell to it. I gently massaged it into my skin and wiped off with a warm wash rag. 

Gentle Refresher 
I really like the refresher, after I was doing cleaning my face with scrub and dried it. And used a cotton-ball to apply the gentle refresher to my skin.  This was used with both samples received. 

Intense Moisture Creme
 This is a looks like a butter to me. But oh so good for your skin !! I placed a small amount on skin ..  And I did this day and night ! 

Gentle Cleanser 
This also smells really good! But I did the same process and this broke me out more. Really Strange! After speaking to Nichola, I gave this another go . Gentle massage on the face and rinse off!  And let me say , for my skin I need to make it not so concentrated. But it has helped my skin even more.. I will be adding this product to. 

Gentle Moisture Lotion 
This seems to be a thicker lotion, again fantastic scent. Great scent, This helps with fine lines ! That is amazing ! 

Before and After Pictures !


After ! 

My Skin is soft, and the aloe is slowly healing my skin. I absolutely love these products !! 

Facial Masque 

This  water based, but first ingredient is aloe. no actual water in product. It firmed on my face and my daughter Lily. It was very interesting, after 15 minutes we used a wash rag, and gently wiped our face .  Then continued with the rest of the process of Gentle Refresher and lotion. 

Over all, baby soft skin, but my rosacea area is all red again.  A great product , but not best for my skin at this time. 

Smooth N Firm Eye Repair Gel 

I found that reduced any puffiness I had, and reduced my dark circles under my eyes ! I really enjoyed this product !

Rejuvenating Facial Peel

 Was very clear, I let stay on my face for 10 minute or so. Once it dried, I simply used a warm wash to remove it. Applied the refresher. Another fantastic product . It really cleared up my  skin well.
