Easy buffalo chicken pasta recipe

Standard

Sundays are normally the one day of the week that I actually cook a real meal. Yesterday I tried something new. I had seen a crock pot recipe for buffalo chicken pasta and decided to give it a whirl. Instead of the crock pot, I made the sauce on the stove top and then combined everything to bake it with some of the cheddar cheese on top. 

It turned out pretty good. It tasted better the next day. I used the whole bottle of buffalo wing sauce, so it was super spicy. If you want a little less of a kick, then you may want to use less of the sauce. 

Have you guys found any new recipes lately? Let me know!

A brown girl friendly red lippie

Standard

Hey y’all! Hope you’re all having an amazeballs week so far. We’ve made it to hump day, whoooohoooo! So, last Friday I was on my way to a concert and realized I had left my lipstick at home when I switched purses. I stopped at a CVS along the way, and found the most amazing red lippie. It’s now my new fav! At least for me, it has been a struggle to find a brown girl friendly red. And I’ve tried many! 

This one is by Milani and it’s called confident. It’s matte, which I love. And I have nothing bad to say about Milani lippies. For the price, only 6.99, they are awesome. They are long-wearing and just an overall good product. I’m more of a deep red kinda girl, and this one is perfect. More good news, I just saw earlier this week that Milani cosmetics are coming to Ulta! I’m Super excited because CVS doesn’t carry the entire line, and I’ve been dying to try their finishing spray. 

Have you guys tried Milani lippies? Do you have a fav shade? 

Trouble sleeping? Try this

Standard

If you know me well, you know that sleeping is one of my fav pastimes 😉 there are few things that I love more than getting my sleep on. But every now and then, it’s hard to catch those zzzzzzz’s! I found that melatonin combined with valerian root can not only help you fall asleep but stay asleep. But, I’m not a doctor, so you’ll want to consult with yours before trying this to ensure safety. Some supplements can interfere with your prescribed medication. 

I did ask my doctor if this was safe, and it is. He also recommended taking 1-2 hours before bed. So, if you’re having trouble sleeping, and looking for something natural, and non-habit forming, you should definitely try this. Thank me later 😊
