imag0951

Go ahead judge me. I woke up like this #Flawless!!! I slept in my birthday makeup but that #toofaced liquid matte lipstick in #DropDeadRed is still popn’ tho.

After a night of excessive communion and breaking bread with friends, this was the perfect ending to a my pre-birthday turn-up weekend. A nice stroll on a sunny Hollywood afternoon to breathe some fresh air and eat some fresh food. All the venders food and layout was nice and clean. I really enjoyed the variety of foods they offered.Some fruits and vegetables are seasonal. I was so disappointed I didn’t get to buy some cotton candy plums. My mouth was literally watering for some sweet fresh fruit.tbucgelli_5 I stumbled upon this one vendor and bought a pineapple passion fruit lemonade to bring my inside back to life lol. Not a big fan of passion fruit juice but surprisingly it was delicious.

Soooo as I sipped and searched for food, my boo daddy keep raving about this lady that had good burritos. Not a huge fan of burritos. But as a foodie, I could turn down a gourmet meal on the go.

#tBuchelli ‘Big Ass Burrito’

I was soooo hungry and tired from last night I just wanted to eat and go back to sleep. Soooo as I was about to pass out, we finally found #tBuchelli Gourmet Sausages! He ordered the ‘Big Ass Burrito’ and I had the Ortega sausage burritos with cheese. Bomb dot com. I wish I had filmed my reaction because the flavors just burst into your mouth. One flavor didn’t over power the other; it was the perfect balance. The texture of the sausage was authentically savory in flavor with a hint a spice. I don’t do spicy but when I tasted the big ass burrito is was also very good. I’m a fan. I’m a believer! Next time no extra cheese tho lol.

#SavedSexySanctifiedSundays: Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is about honoring, respecting and remember those brave soldiers who have given their lives so we can be free. Let’s not get so caught up in the Memorial Day celebration with bbq and booze that we forget about the real meaning of this holiday. Let’s not forget to mourn with the families who have lost their daughters, sons, mothers and fathers that have fought for Americans freedom.

#RebukeTheCalories: Spring Comfort Foods

There is something a California rain that’s sexy but especially during seasonal changes. The domestic goddess deep inside me was craving all sorts of yummy fattening comfort foods. I #RebukeTheCalories in name of Jesus and decided to cook a few healthy comfort food options instead. Just because I’m hibernating for the weekend doesn’t mean I’m undoing months of suffering and sacrificing for the fashion gawds. I’m still watching my girlish figure. Memorial Day is in two weeks. Summer is just around the corner. Oh the yummy temptations. A quick store run before the real heavy rains comes, I made sure all essential foods and snacks were stocked. I prepared a grocery list keeping in mind what foods I already have at home that I can incorporate my lifestyle meal plan and my monthly food budget.

Grocery List:

  • Bell Peppers
  • Parmesan
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Tomato soup
  • Basil seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Sourdough bread
  • Rice O Roni Herb & Butter Flavored
  • Chicken breast
  • Bacon
  • Mixed greens salad
  • Caesar dressing

Meal 1 includes stuffed roasted bell peppers top with melted cheese. The stuffing is made of Rice O Roni and baked chicken breast.

Meal 2 includes a bacon grilled cheese sandwich with basil and garlic flavored tomato soup.

Meal 3 includes a mixed green salad topped with the left over chicken breast, bacon crumbs (chopped boiled egg optional) and caesar salad dressing with garlic parmesan cheese bread.

#RebukeTheCalories: Yelp! Food Reviews

My relationship with technology has been a rocking one. I am such an old fashion girl living in a modern day world of technology. I don’t know whether to download a new app that keeps my daily to-do-list organized OR upgrade my cell phone with a better forward facing mega pixel camera so I can keep taking fabulous selfies. Finding a balance between my creativity and technology is literally at times driving me crazy. Some days I feel like if I write one more blog post and send one more text that my brain will literally explode.

Ahhh at last, my perfectly polished manicured fingers has discovered Yelp!
