Tried a new hummus today. No joke, it tastes better than Whole Food's hummus. Recipe below.
Super Simple Hummus
1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 (15.5 oz) can chickpeas, drained
1 thin slice fresh onion
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Cracked black pepper or cayenne
1. Combine all the ingredients except the salt, black pepper, and Cayenne in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
2. Taste the hummus. Add salt and black pepper as needed￼￼. If hummus is too thick add more olive oil or a little warm water and blend again.
3. Store in an airtight glass container in the fridge.
*Note: Hummus will thicken as it chills. ￼￼￼

Chanel Inimitable vs. Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara
I’ve now tried both. I’ve tried the iconic Chanel Inimitable Mascara up against the highly rated Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara. My verdict: Chanel.
For me it comes down to the consistency of the product and how it wears throughout the day. To me, Chanel has a thicker longer lasting formula compared to Armani. I found with the Armani mascara I was having to apply multiple coats just to notice I had any mascara on and then… it would smudge and get tiny clumps. Chanel was one and done with no clumps.
I’ve been very cautious with my hair lately. It’s getting super long and I’m trying to keep it strong and healthy because I’m donating a portion of it in a few months.
Since it has been a while from the last time it’s been cut, lately I’ve noticed the tips are getting a little dry. My conditioner just isn’t cutting it. I went to Shaw’s today and got a jar of unrefined organic coconut oil and did a diy hair mask. I put it on at lunch then washed it out tonight. My hair feels so much better, looks healthier, and fly aways/frizzy ends are gone.
I ran out of concealer recently. I’ve always used Chanel Colour Corrector Concealer but after reading a few articles I discovered just how many chemicals are in commercialized concealers like Chanel. Like a healthy balanced diet, skincare products and makeup also need a good balance. I decided to look for a healthier concealer product.
I read the reviews about rms beauty’s concealer and decided I’d try it. I like that it’s claim is to make skin healthier the more it’s worn. It’s supposed to help lock in moisture and even out skin tone with the help of organic, Non GMO ingriedients like coconut and jojoba oil. It’s free of parabens. Free of talc. It also ranks a 2 on the EWG verification.
So far I love it. I love that doesn’t make my skin oily. I also love that this concealer doesn’t feel like makeup.
