Today I'm sharing my favorites from the week as always. Make sure you let me know what you're up to in the comments below, and I'll see you on Monday!
This is one of my favorite times of the year, because baseball season is starting, while hockey and basketball are in playoffs. I'm not the biggest hockey fan, but I love following along with playoffs. The Pens are currently playing the Rangers, while the Flyers' (aka my least favorite team..sorry to any readers from Philly) fans did this. And, while Pittsburgh doesn't have a professional basketball team, I love following along with those playoff games as well. It's the best time of the year for a sports fan!
7-Minute EggI'm a huge fan of poached eggs, but they're so difficult to make at home that I gave up. Recently, I discovered the 7 minute egg, which is so easy to make and gives you that same runny yolk that I love. If you haven't given this method a try, you must! Here's how I make mine:
Bring a pot of water to a boil, adding in about a tablespoon of vinegar (this helps the shell peel off easily). You want enough water to barely cover your eggs.
Once the water comes to a rolling boil, add in your eggs gently using a slotted spoon. Keep the heat up and boil the eggs for exactly 7 minutes, making sure it doesn't boil over.
Once the time is up, carefully dump out the water, and add a tray of ice cubes to the eggs. This helps to cool them down quickly.
Give the eggs a few minutes to cool, then crack them open (I gently tap the end until it cracks, then use a spoon to peel off the shell). Add to your dish a slice them open for a yummy and easy meal!
I like adding mine to smoked salmon and spinach, or roasted sweet potatoes and zucchini. Yum!
Tone Radiant Glow body wash - Good body wash, great smell! 9/10
Bed Head Sugar Shock - Made my hair feel sticky and weighed it down, but it smells amazing. 4/10
Not Your Mother's Plump For Joy - I didn't actually finish this..I accidentally dumped it out when I was cleaning. It didn't really thicken my hair at all, so I'm glad to throw it out. 1/10
CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser - My favorite cleanser! No scent, nothing special, but cleans my skin without drying it out or breaking me out. 10/10
Pureology Instant Deep- Conditioning Mask - I got this in an Allure beauty box and wouldn't repurchase. I didn't like the pump design or the scent. It did a pretty good job at conditioning, but nothing special. 6/10
L'Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray - My all-time favorite setting spray. SO GOOD! 10/10
