Merry Christmakkah! Let’s make Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice

December 16, 2016

Did you guys know that Christmas and the start of Hanukkah land on December 24th this year?  It’s a super hybrid holiday!!  The best things happen when the unexpected come together and this holiday season is no different!  Soy Vay put this cute little Christmakkah song together. It’s so cute!  So while you’re cooking, give it a listen! Now, onto the meal!

You GUYSSS!!!!  The Nord Anniversary Sale – early access – has begun!  I’m so stoked.  I literally save all my money all year long to splurge on this sale because… well it’s just the best.  If you buy ONE thing from this roundup, I’d get the Clarisonic.  I use it every single night and I’m obsessed with it.  A few other things I absolutely love are my T3 blow dryer and my PMD.  And the rest are things I’m getting and thought you’d like too!  The Mac Look in a Box is a great starter kit for those of you who need a few good basics and also the Smashbox kit, comes with blushes, eye shadows, mascaras and lips.  Great brands, and colors.  You can’t go wrong!  And then the Deborah Lippmann nail polishes — those colors!  So anyway, here’s just a few products to get you started.

I am so excited to be a part of the Dove #LoveYourHair campaign.  I’ve always loved the way Dove embraces originality, first with their Campaign for Real Beauty to show that all body types are beautiful and now with their Love your Hair campaign.  Big, blue, curly, straight, short, buzzed — however you want to because it’s time do hair your way!   Dove Hair has made a super cute film that shows how extraordinarily beautiful being unique truly is and you can join us in celebrating every texture, color, and length by following along on Pinterest here.  How do you embrace your originality?  This post was made in collaboration with Dove Hair but all opinions are my own. <img height=’0′ width=’0′ alt=” src=’’ />
