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…

Chicken Noodle Bowl

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! ?…

Apple & Peach Crostata

Originally posted on Life According to Jamie:
Crostata’s are a dessert that I really enjoy making. If you’ve never heard of a crostata before, it’s essentially an open-faced pie. You can make yours with any kind of filling you want. For the one I’m sharing today I used apples and peaches – perfect for the upcoming summer season and on/off spring days we’re having now. First, peel and cut your fruit. Then, I mix the fruit with brown sugar, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. The lemon juice is to help the fruit from browning. After giving the filling a good mix,  I brush egg wash onto pie crust dough and then carefully pour/spoon the fruit into the center of my pie crust dough. Next, fold the sides towards the center, slightly overlapping the sections. Brush some egg wash onto the top/sides of the crostata and sprinkle some sugar onto the dough. I also put a few pats of butter onto the exposed fruit. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the crostata is a nice…

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…

How to Blue Apron Your Life in 10 Ways

Originally posted on How To Get Things Done in 10 Ways:
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. I had heard of this awhile ago, but I could never quite commit to giving it a shot. I’ve also been comparing the other companies that do the same type of business, but then I saw Blue Apron on Groupon. A discounted price to try something that had intrigued me for so long?! I immediately purchased that one! 1. So simple to order You literally just put what kinds of meats you want, and yes, they have vegetarian options too! And then you pick your delivery day and then BOOM you’re done and now you just wait for the amazingness to arrive. They also have an app so you can check…
