It’s very nice to see that 2 years later my detox water recipes are still so popular! I haven’t been actively posting on this blog lately as I have been taken up with a lot of shifts that have happened in my life over the past two years. I’m a very different person than who I was two years ago and I’ve been embracing different parts of myself. I started a new project at the beginning of the year and this blog though very old is still a part of me and at one point in my life it was one of the only things I had to look forward to while being away from home. I hope that there are still some people out there who would like to follow me as I take on new challenges, I feel that I still have a lot to offer. With that said, one of the new challenges I have taken on is designing clothing for myself as well as others. I’m currently only set up on Instagram but I’m in the process of incorporating new content on things such as skin care, more detox water recipes and any other lifestyle topics that seem fitting. If you would like to follow me and stay up to date you can follow my page @PrimeLust this is where I will be posting all my new designs I have for sale and the link for the website will be posted once I get some momentum!
It felt great to get creative again at the UrbanArts Conference last week where we conducted a jewelry making workshop for the young girls participating in this self worth and confidence boosting event. Among us there were musical artists, motivational speakers and inspiring leaders who all came together to give their support as well as deliver some important messages to the attendees through presentations, activities and music.
I never realized how relevant our jewelry workshop would be to the overall theme of the event. The main goal here was to encourage young girls to respect themselves and others and to hold strong values that are not swayed by the many external influences and pressures that they face at this time in their lives (and of course will have to face in the very near future) so it wasn’t until I saw how excited all the girls were when they decked themselves out in all their creations that we were the final step in really making these girls feel like the queens they are. Although they were adorned in jewelry that probably costs less than a nickel, the feeling of seeing them genuinely feel good about themselves was priceless.
I was also super impressed by how creative everyone got with their jewelry making skills, most went above and beyond what we had demonstrated for them and came up with some pretty unique styles. In case any of you wish to try this yourselves I have included a DIY video below, it’s crazy how easy and affordable this is considering you can purchase the wire at the dollar store and all you need is a good pair of pliers to get started🙂 Until next time lovelies!
Okay so I just got in from outside… I’m not sure if I’ll ever be leaving my house again because the weather is actually so horrible, which is really annoying considering how nice it was yesterday! I went on a scavenger hunt (work related bonding activities) with my co-workers and I specifically remember that the sun was shining and we cruised on the highway with the windows down, I found myself feeling slightly smitten again with the city I live in and it literally felt like summer/late spring. Obviously I wasn’t expecting that to continue throughout the week since the weather in Canada is ALMOST as bipolar as some of the guys I’ve dated in the past but I still feel very betrayed. I thought we had something?
So I’m staying in today and will participate in some comforting activities such as painting to make up for the fact that I can’t make it into work tonight and chow down on some of these biscuits I made a few nights ago for days like these. I hope everyone is super safe on their commutes today wherever you are, especially if you’re like me and don’t have winter tires. The recipe for the biscuits is posted below, have a great week everyone🙂.
Herb and Cheddar Biscuits
- 2 cups of all-purpose flower (you can also use gluten-free or whole wheat)
- 1 tbsp of baking powder
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 package shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese (your preference)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1. Preheat oven at 450 degrees fahrenheit. Prep a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add one stick of butter to a microwave safe mixing bowl. Microwave until the butter is melted (approximately 30 seconds) and set aside.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Whisk to combine evenly.
3. Add butter and milk to mixture and whisk until all the flour is wet, then fold in the cheese with a spoon.
4. Place large spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown.
5. Melt remaining 1/2 stick of butter in small mixing bowl. Add in salt and parsley and brush onto warm baked biscuits and serve.
Fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and garlic tossed in a mix of dried basil, rosemary, parsley, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Served on a toasted baguette with honey infused goat cheese.
If you’ve ever made bruschetta then you know that it’s extremely simple and super tasty. I love making these with fruit and I’m pretty sure I’m going to use the left over bread to make some breakfast bruschetta in the morning, but still nothing beats a classic tomato version.
I try not to be so nostalgic about the past since I know so many great things are hidden in the future, however a friend and I found ourselves reminiscing about days in New York last night and the following morning I came across these photos I took while I was there in the summer.
Chicken meatballs cooked in a teriyaki sauce made with oyster sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, honey garlic flavouring and fresh garlic and ginger.
Served with pasta tossed in a mixture of olive oil, parmesan cheese, black pepper, garlic seasoning, salt and balsamic vinegar.
