- 4 cups organic chicken stock - 1 cup water - 1 cup spinach leaves - 2 chopped large carrots - 2 cups cooked brown rice - 1 cup chopped celery - 4 cooked, Shredded, organic chicken breasts - 1 tablespoon salt - 2 teaspoons pepper - 1 teaspoon red pepper Flakes - 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil - 2 teaspoons garlic salt - 2 teaspoons onion POWDER - 1 teaspoon ginger powder - 1 large chopped ZUCCHINI
After prepping the rice, vegetables and chicken breasts heat two tablespoons of the olive oil in a medium sized skillet. Once the oil has heated, sautee the carrots and celery on low until the celery becomes a clear color and remove from the heat. In a large pot, add the olive oil, seasonings, and spices. Mix thoroughly and heat the olive oil mixture on low until the red pepper flakes begin to toast. Add the chicken stock, carrots celery, and water to the pot; bring to a boil. After the soup begins to boil, move the heat to low and add the zucchini. Next add the spinach, shredded chicken, and rice. Heat 5-7 more minutes, thoroughly mixing the ingredients, until the spinach becomes a dark, deep green. Add salt and pepper to taste.
I have to be honest: even I was a little bit skeptical of the snake-skin top trend. But, after I saw Kim K rock a snake-skin look for winter, I was in. I picked up this cute, sheer. turlenek top at Target and matched it up with a glitter mini-dress from H&M. The best part? Both were on sale and this whole outfit was only $10 total! This little look looks great with black or nude pumps. The top could totally be interchanged with any other color-coordinating sheer top or even a different animal printed top! I love this for winter because where I live, it doesn't get too chilly, so this combo keeps me cute, trendy, and not too toasty.
This summer I have been totally digging the Italian, Dolce and Gabbana, fresh and simple look [SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE ME TO ITALY 🍋🥖🍝], and I have seen the scarf-in-the hair trend everywhere! It's super chic and, not to mention, totally easy to make work! I found a really cool silk scarf on Amazon that is only, you're going to die, $3.15. I'm sure you just died and went to heaven so let me welcome you back and say, yes, it's the real deal folks! And it comes in 9 colors! You can find the link and more info on it from my Amazon Summer Style Deals Under $20 post here:
I curl my hair, almost everyday, with a 2 inch curling iron and that's how I end up with my big, bouncy curls, like shown above. First, separate your hair into two sections from the middle of the back of your neck so you have an even left and right section. Hold your curling iron as a wand, upside down, wrap your hair around the curling iron from top to bottom. Curl each section away from your face, all the way to the back, until the next section begins. My hair is longer, so I begin each curl about 3-5 inches down from my roots. Once you finish your curls, spray your hair with your favorite hairspray or setting spray.
Comb and smooth out the top of your hair for the ponytail. If you have thin hair, tease the hair from your root to about 3-4 inches down for volume. Carefully pick a few, small curls around your face and set aside while you gather the rest of your hair into a tight, low ponytail.
Take your silk-scarf and fold it half diagonally, creating a triangle. Tie the scarf around your ponytail securely. I love this long and lustrous look, so I left my scarf long, but keep tying it around your ponytail or fold the scarf in half again if you want your look to be shorter. Once you've securely tied your scarf, pull at the tie to fluff up the scarf, and voila! Convertible down the coast of Italy ready!
