YCDT • Paper Dividers


Pink Paper Dividers • This is an easy, simple way to make something out of your scrap book materials. Some ribbon, small grommets and decorative scissors and you are done. It is a great idea to make little gifts for a book club, or a girls get together with maybe some personal message for each one to remember.

Olive Oil


Olive Oil Hair Spray by Palmer's. I found this product the other day at the grocery store and I decided to give it a try, especially after my very good friend from Dominican Republic told me that she uses extra virgin olive oil on her hair and it looks wonderful. This product is working very good on my hair, it is easy to use and gives me the results I like.

When 'Busy' Calls 'Frozen' Works



It is real, some of us enjoy cooking and experimenting things here and there in the kitchen. But, sometimes or most of the time, we can get so extremely busy that cooking time is really no where to be found. So, here it is! Frozen pizza works just fine until one day I can find the time to make my own pizza from scratch.

Neutrals




I am not too into colored nails for myself, at least not yet (trying the color blue lately). I love to see them in other women if that counts. I prefer neutrals for me, it is just easy and it goes with most outfits and at the end of it all, that's just how I am simple, chic, easy. Here I show 3 samples plus the clear finish.

Oregano Roasted Potatoes


Oregano roasted potatoes. Simply delicious! I got this recipe from a friend of the family who lost her battle to breast cancer. Every time I make this dish I think of her and how grateful I am that she introduced me to this simple recipe.
All you have to do is, slice the potatoes, butter up the bottom of the baking dish, place the potatoes in the baking dish, add salt, oregano, a bit of Black pepper and lots of butter. Put in the oven at 400 degrees for 55 minutes or until potatoes are soft, and you are done.

Black & White Floral





This Black & White floral dress made by me it's very comfortable. I used linen fabric for this dress, because I simply love linen. It is a pull over dress, no zipper, no button, the goal with this dress was dress up and go.

These decorative pillows I made for a friend of mine. She was looking for bright colors to bring a feel of happiness to her studio apartment. I have to say they look wonderful in her space. I was happy I was able to help her with what she wanted for her new place. These are very easy to make and I added a side zipper for easy cleaning.

Oil Free



 Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer, best protection ever to my opinion. I believe in taking care of your skin instead of hiding skin imperfections with make up. With this product you get the moist and the protection needed both at once. it can be easily mixed with your foundation for some of us who don't like too much foundation., I have been using this product for quiet a long time now and as long as they keep it in the market I'll keep buying it.

Simple Salad


I am not an expert at all when it comes to cooking, usually I play it safe with simple foods, like salads and pasta and small bites. This is one of my favorite! My staple dressing is vinaigrette but this time I used a homemade honey mustard dressing made by a fried of mine, she is all about gluten free meals and it was delicious. So basically, I mixed my bag of salad, with onions and cranberries, pour the honey mustard dressing on top and served lemon ice tea as my drink.
