Breezy and Beautiful

Florida really is a great place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. It’s been too cool to go to the beach unfortunately, but that isn’t stopping me from eating some wonderful food!

I went to a great little Spanish restaurant in Hialeah and had a delicious lunch of Salmon with caramelized onions, white rice, and a little bit of fries (Double starch, oops!) I will get back to my daily grind once I head back home on Monday.

I also leave you with some pretty flowers! It must be a sight for sore eyes!

Olive Oil & It’s Multitude of Uses

Things that have more than one use are great as they are cost efficient. One of the best we’ve heard? Olive oil. It is delicious in our salads and drizzled on different dishes but it can also be used in your beauty routine!

1. Makeup Remover

We’ve given this a try and we were delighted at the results. You dab a little extra virgin olive oil onto a cotton ball or cotton pad and wipe away that make up. It comes off easily and it leaves you skin soft and supple. It is also much more cost efficient and no plastic bottles!

2. Untangle Tangled Chains

You pull out one of your gold necklaces to put on for a dinner party and you find it is a tangled mess, even the mere sight of it is enough to make you give up. Put a drop of olive oil on it to lubricate it and make it much easier to untangle.

3. Moisturizer

Olive oil is amazingly delicate and doesn’t clog up your pores as you would think. Put some on your skin and rub in. A little goes a long way and you will notice a difference right away.

4. Shaving

Olive oil is slick allowing the blades to glide right over your skin, effectively taking away those pesky little hairs without nicking yourself. You could also put some olive oil on right after as a moisturizer.

5. Control Frizz

Comb some olive oil through your hair to avoid fly-aways and static. It’s great for those really humid days or the especially drying winter days.

Life is Full of Obstacles

Today, my mother went to her doctor appointment for a check up. They sent her to the Emergency room and now she might stay there overnight. This is the second time in the past 2 months. I’m really upset because I don’t have a car to go drive to the hospital to visit. She really stresses too much about the little things and she is very particular in how she wants things,leading her to yell. Her hemoglobin fell very low and they say she has internal bleeding.

I think I’m going to go to the mall with my cousins, buy her a nice big dinner to go, take her personal things and a charger and visit her a little. I’m wondering if I should call out of work in case she comes home tomorrow but I work 5pm-10pm. Ah, I don’t know.

I just hope my poor mother gets better and decides to take care of herself even more. This is no way to spend the new year.
