The unblemished is the first line I’ve ever used that hasn’t sent me back to BirthControl. Those Hormones will make a Ho Cray Cray.

Ok! Here is the point!
The Enhancement Mineral Peptides Make up is killing it! Got it as a gift with purchase, ordered the wrong color; got a Tan, and now I’m obsessed. It’s really the perfect storm! My Acne is under control, I’m using an anti aging line, and now I have a light powder to control shine and redness. Never been happier with a skin care line! One more time if you missed the link

My New Favorite Artist

  The only thing I know about this young man is his name. I found him on Instagram, and was blown away by his Ball Point Pen Art.

Rising Sun

I think the work speaks for it self. My husband and I hope he becomes world Famous…Not just because we own Chief Mitchell,

For My Name Sake

The Mitchell Collection By: Sylvia Benson

 My classic go to earring is always a pearl or a diamond stud; it never steals too much attention! Moving in the direction of Maximalist Fashion I still have a hard time breaking my minimalist habits!

The Mitchell Stud 66$

The Mitchell Stud by Sylvia Benson  has been an easy transition for me, Its slightly oversized stature and understated gold design make it a go to choice for a minimalist looking to step out of their comfort zone. Not to Mention its my namesake

…Call me Mrs. Mitchell

Ba ba black belt

A belt in it’s purest form is a great way to tie your outfit together! A modern fashionista will mix colors and metals by mismatching their belt and shoes! Step outside of your normal gold and silver buckles with a new kind of belt!

What’s Kale got to do with it

Me: Is Kale supposed to burn your eyes when you Juice it?

Kyle: I don’t think so…

Me: Is it supposed to burn and make your eyes sensitive to light?

Kyle: Maybe you’re doing it wrong?!?

Me: hmmm? I wonder if I’m allergic?

 My in laws are not only some of the most fashionable people I know, but also some of the most fit. I would love to say that they eat cheeseburgers and smoke cigarette’s all day to maintain there amazing physique, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Kyle was taught that food is fuel; I was taught Mangi! Mangi!

Mangi! Mangi!
Eat! Eat!

A couple of years ago my in-laws were looking EXTRA amazing…

 I inquired:

It must be all the Juicing!

Juicing? Tell me more.

They proceeded to explain that they had been eating Raw and using  a Jack La Lanne Juicer.

  You can eat all day ,lose weight, and your skin looks amazing. Count me in.

To Barnes and Nobel I went with two key words, Raw and Juicing. I was on fast track to becoming a raw foodiest!

 Morning one of my Juice Cleanse.

The juicer was amazing and powerful. Every vegetable I pulverized made me feel healthier and stronger; but what happened when I started juicing the Kale would change my life forever.

I made my first juice: Green Lemonade and was supposed to consume a mason jar full of this juice three times a day.

3fs Oozze
5stalks of Kale
1head of Romaine
1apple
1lemon
1/2 cucumber

Once I had juiced most of the produce I only had the kale left , as I pushed the kale through the juicer it released a pungent odor and fumes that made me hide my head.

Surely this detox is working, but sensitivity to light?

This continued for 3 days, did I mention that I smelled like an onion. I tried a different juice on my 4th day;  Carrots and apples…

No more tears

On the fifth Day I decide to get my produce at The Fresh Market  instead of the Harris Teeter. I Couldn’t seem to find the Kale, so I asked.

Gourmet Grocery Store

 

Me: Excuse me Sir, I cant seem to find the Kale?

TFM Employee: Oh, That’s because we haven’t put out yet. Let me get it from the back.

The man returns with a box, and pulls out this beautiful over sized green leaf.

ME: Sir, are their different types of Kale?

TFME: Yes mama, there are lots of types of Kale

ME: What about this?(  I am holding up a Leek)

TFME: No …Mama that is an Onion, not Kale

ME: FML

So once I had real Kale not only in my Juice, but Raw there was no eye stinging or green oozey drinks, and green lemonade became one of my favorite juices’.

So what’s Kale got to do with it?

I just wanted to Share my favorite Kale Salad recipe with you: that is all.

kalesalad

3fs Kale Salad

5 stalks of Kale Washed and cut off of the stem

Dressing

2Tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos

2Tbsp Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

1Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Tbsp. Texas Pete Cha!® or 1TbspTexas Pete®  Hot Sauce

1Tsp Minced Garlic

1/2 Juice of a Lemon

Pepper to taste

Cover Washed and Cut Kale in Dressing until Kale is saturated.

I’ve Found the best way to do this is by shaking vigorously in a sealed plastic container or bag.

 Warning it is Spicy, but after all What’s Kale got to do with that anyway!
