Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing a recipe for orange chicken! This is so simple and delicious!
You need chicken, I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and I cut them into cubes. I used a pack of frozen stir fry veggies and for the orange sauce you need a jar of orange marmalade, BBQ sauce, and soy sauce.
Cook the chicken in a pan, add veggies and put on medium heat while you prepare the orange sauce.
For the orange sauce you’re going to use the whole jar of orange marmalade, 1 cup of BBQ sauce, and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Depending on how orange you like your chicken will tell you if you need to add more BBQ sauce but no more than 2 cups!
Mix all together and pour over chicken and veggies. Cook on low for about 10 minutes, take it off the heat let sit for 10ish minutes and serve!
Hey hey! Today we’re talking about NudeStix brand cosmetics. Of course Ulta just had to send out 20% off coupons and I tried my hardest to ignore it but then I saw you could use it on prestige as well. So I was shopping in Ulta and decided to try something new.
I bought two matte lip colors and a tinted blur stick for your face. The tinted blur stick was $30 and $24 for each lippie. Then of course I used my 20% off.
The packaging is super chic and sleek. They come in black tins and there’s a mirror in the lid.
The tinted blur stick boasts that you will get light coverage with a matte not flat finish. Which is fine I was looking for a light weight light coverage coverup for summer. However I don’t agree with the matte claim. I feel like this product accentuated my oily areas. I still added powder to set as always but just from first application that was not the case. Other than that the first impression was a good one!
The matte lip colors are too die for! They glide on and have great color payoff. They are crayons so they come with their own individual sharpeners. They don’t dry my lips out and the staying power is pretty decent. I worn one through a meal and didn’t need to reapply.
The absolute best thing about this brand is their products are multi-use. The lip products can be used on the face and their face products can be used as foundation, contour, concealer, etc. I could take two products and do a whole face! Especially went it’s hot outside and you want as little on your face as possible.
First impression very good! I will definitely try more NudeStix!
Happy Sunday! Let’s talk bouge. There is definitely nothing wrong with being bougie. I give into the bouge all the time!
So today’s topic is definitely paying homage to those bougie moments.
My top 5 bougie beauty products (and why I love them):
Cynthia Rowley Band Aids
Marc Jacobs nail polish
Farsali Rose Gold Elixir
Mac lipstick: Kelly Osbourne Collection
If designer band aids don’t say bougie I don’t know what does! But I love them! Every little nic and scrape gets covered by these bad boys!
I’ll tell the truth the only reason I bought the Marc Jacobs nail polish was the name: Fluorescent Beige.
The Givenchy mascara screamed luxe to me, I like it and I will use it but I’ve had better.
Farsali Rose Gold Elixir is bomb, first and foremost but anything infused with 24k gold is bougie.
Mac lipstick from the Kelly Osbourne collection in Dodgy Girl. Only because i was determined to buy something from this collection and this was all that was left by the time I made it to the Mac counter!
Happy Wednesday! Today I’m reviewing Frank Body’s Lip Scrub Shimmer.
Frank Body is natural, cruelty free skincare. The products are aimed at detoxifying, brightening, and softening your body. There are products for body, face, and lips.
I tried the lip scrub shimmer. I’ve tried a lot of lip exfoliants and I have to say the Frank Body lip scrub was gentle but hard working, moisturizing, and smells great! The packaging is extremely cute and the fact that it is cruelty free is even better!
I’m excited to try the body scrubs next! The lip scrub retails for 14.95 and free shipping at frankbody.com!
