I can’t believe I forgot to ask you how your Halloween was! I’m super late I know. How was it? Did you get a lot of kids at your door? ? Let me ask you, what’s your cut off? Like what’s the cut off where you just wanna be like dude…..you’re too fucking old. ? My cut off is somewhere around twelve. Even around ten. When they start saying little wise ass, cunty things. Like they run shit. That’s the hardest thing about being an adult around a kid it’s just like dude, I was your fucking age. ? I’ve been ten, I’ve been twelve, alright? Then I’ve been eighteen and I’ve been twenty five; do you think I don’t know what you’re fucking doing? Do you think you’re playing with my mind mannnn? You’re not. ? ? Everybody’s gotta have that, you know? Like that adult…remember when you were a kid and there was that one adult where when your parents weren’t looking, he just looked at…

You know those people who you say hello to and they don’t say hello back? They just smile and it’s a fake smile? One of those people?? There was somebody at my old company who used to do that and I fell for it like the first 67 times. ? I’d be walking down the hall and this lady would be walking the other way. Never any particular time but whenever I would pass this lady in the hall, I would just be like, “hey good morning” or “hey how’s it going?”, whatever the fuck you say right? Just being polite. And she would always do the same thing. ? She would tilt her head to the side like she was going awwww, and she’d do this smile but she wouldn’t show any teeth, like the Jay Leno smile? And then her eyes would squint up like she was looking into the sun. She’d do that every time. This big stupid fake smile and I’d just be like grrrrrrrr! ?…

Easy 2 Ingredient Oatmeal Banana Cookies

Originally posted on 28 and Counting…:
Trying to lose weight is not a lot of fun, especially if you have a big weight loss goal like I do. However, through trial and error over the years, I have learned that depriving myself of everything I love will not work for the long term and can lead to a binge of all things brownie. I think in the maintenance phase, the 80/20 rule works well (80 percent healthy food for fuel and 20 percent food for comfort) and in the losing weight phase, I raise that number to 90/10 or even 95/5 (sorry). The best approach is finding healthy food that tastes like comfort food so that you can make smart choices even when you’re “cheating.” I personally have never met a cookie that I didn’t like, so I decided to find a way that I could eat a cookie every single day and still find success with losing weight. Lo and behold, I have done it and now I’d like to share my easy 2 ingredient…

What’s In My Mailbox? | Things Dangerous To Come To

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life. – The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Every week, I send and receive letters that travel to places I’ve never been–and they end up in the hands of people I’ve never met. If you’re feeling trapped and sad in your comparatively dull little world, there’s nothing I’d suggest more than finding a pen pal or two. While I remained physically in Massachusetts this week, a beautiful trio of letters sent me on a hand-written journey to Italy, Spain, and Ireland. That’ll have to do until the day that I can randomly jet off to Greenland like Ben Stiller! Though I dearly love all of my American pen pals, I do get a secret, extra thrill every time I get a letter from abroad: as international mail means international postage! I’m pretty familiar with every USPS offering by this point, so foreign postmarks are a delight.…

Most of the store- made granola is usually high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils.The advantage of making your own granola is that you know exactly what’s in it and you can add you favourite ingredients. This granola is made with oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and your favourite nuts and fruits. The granola is naturally sweetened with coconut flakes and  honey or maple syrup.  I usually make a large batch granola this to last throughout the week . This recipe yield a large batch of granola ( about 6 cups). Serve with yogurt  or nut milk and fresh fruit or berries. ? ?

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

This post may contain affiliate links, read more about what that means here. This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Growing up I wasn’t particularly drawn to the chocolate chip variety. I have a huge obsession with anything peanut butter, and still very much do! Hubbs on the other hand, lovessssss chocolate chip & so this recipe has become a major VIP in our house. I love warming the house up on a chilly day with the stove & these cookies. In the winter our neighbor does a lot of the snow removal in our driveway – so I always make sure to thank him the best way I know how. And that is either with these cookies, or my favorite banana bread recipe. Either way it’s a win for all!

How to Dye Hair With Henna

Originally posted on HELLO LESYA:
English | Українська Hi, girls! Today I want to share with you my experience of dyeing hair with henna. I dyed my hair with henna for the first time when I was 13. I wanted to change my look and my mother advised me the natural alternative instead of synthetic hair dyes. Since time I have been using henna very often. When I studied at university I tried to dye my hair with a no ammonia hair colorant (such as L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss), but I didn’t like them. I have a sensitive scalp and these colorants always irritates my skin. And after a few times of usage I noticed that my hair became more fragile and lifeless. I knew I had to change my hair care routine immediately. So I’ve turned to henna again and here you see the result. My first three steps were: 1) Improving my daily diet + adding more vitamins. I started eating spirulina in spring and autumn 2) Using sulfate-free shampoos 3) Dyeing hair with…

Okay, another lazy factor in my life. I hate grocery shopping, so I do the online shopping and then I drive to the store and they bring it out to my car. I hate cooking because I never have any ingredients to try new recipes. But behold, Blue Apron stumbled into my lazy life.
