The Taste:Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC

Hey Lovelies,

I love watching television, maybe a little too much, but....there's a new show called The Taste and I had to see what it was all about. By the title I knew it was a cooking show. I didn't really think any further into the title, so when watching the first episode, I was amazed that the cooks/chefs actually only had one taste of a chance to flaunt their skills. This one detail makes The Taste different from every other cooking show out there alone. Did they stop there? No. no, no, no. There are four very accomplished judges: Nigella Lawson, Anthony Bourdain, Ludo Lefebvre, and Brian Malarkey. who will each coach a team(kind of like The Voice).  "In each episode the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through various elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors' dishes blind -- with no knowledge of whose creation they're sampling, what they're eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be sending home" (Influenster).

Does my review make you crave for more info? Then check out the last episode of The Taste here: http://abc.tv/Z3jimp

Review: One Love Organic's Skin Savior

Hey lovelies!

I know I've been slacking on the posts, but you can read my last post to find out why.
To make this post as short as possible I'm going skip the tangents and get right into the review.

I received this amazing jar of product in my Birchbox a couple of months ago and was just using it as a nightly moisturizer every now and then. This moisturizer is sort of grainy, but it smoothes quickly into skin and you only need a very small amount. I love using it at night because it can be used as an eye cream and facial moisturizer. I love the light lemon meringue scent because it only lasts for a couple of seconds.

I found the creator and followed One Love Organics on Twitter. Then I decided I would tell them how much  I love the "Skin Savior". The company replied and said that this product isn't only amazing at moisturizing skin, but can be used as a leave in hair conditioner, lip balm, cleanser, and cuticle cream. I was flabberghasted by her reply because I could put it in my hair?! I was a little afraid to at first because I thought my hair would get too oily. When I finally did, it was like love all over again because it made my hair silky, smooth, but not too oily. It is great at detangling as well. Just use a litle amount at the end of your hair and work up so that it won't get too oily.

I'm so sad that I'm almost finished with the jar, but it did last me at least 3 months. Should I splurge($68 for 3.5 oz.) and get more?
