I was contacted in August by Elaine from GlassesShop.Com to see if I’d like to pick out a pair of glasses to review, so I quickly emailed her back and told her I’d love to. I picked out the Weymouth Cat-Eye Burgundy Glasses. It was hard to choose. You can upload your own picture to the site and try the glasses on. I narrowed it down to 6 frames and asked for suggestions on Facebook and Instagram. Elaine was really nice to work with. I told her which frames I wanted to try and gave her my prescription and I had the glasses in my hand by the end of August. The frames are really lightweight, but very sturdy. I like the size and shape of them very much. The lenses are very clear and there’s no distortion.

The site itself is really easy to use. You can try on the glasses and save them to your favorites. When you order you can save your prescription for future uses. They offer prescription and non-prescription glasses and sunglasses for men, women and children. They have a HUGE amount of frames to choose from. They have several different lenses for you to choose as well as options for anti-reflective, uv and water resistant coatings. Anti-scratch coating is free. :) When selecting sunglasses they have several color options as well. Standard shipping is $4.95 and you get free shipping on orders over $49. Overall I am really happy with my glasses. I have to get Sascha’s eyes checked soon. If he needs glasses I’m likely going to be getting them from GlassesShop.Com. They were also nice enough to give me a discount code for you lovely minks! Use code AMSHX20 to get 20% off your order. :D

So this was way super simple. I had an appointment with the kids therapist yesterday to update their case file and sign releases for their schools. This was my first time using a CC cream. It was nice the color matched nicely. My only problem was that it was drying and my face got flaky in a couple of spots. Now that it’s getting cooler my skin is getting drier. Ew. Also no brows.

Miso soup over rice with green onion

Recipe: Simple Homemade Miso Soup

The kids LOVE miso soup, especially Fumiko. I’ve been making it at home since Fumiko was tiny. Her first “solid” food was miso soup and rice and my favorite Japanese restaurant! She loves my recipe and asks me to make it constantly. So tonight was miso soup night. She was thrilled and ate 3 bowls of miso soup and rice. The kiddos love shiitake mushrooms so I usually put a lot in my miso soup. It’s a really simple recipe, but very tasty. There are different types of miso paste. I normally just use white/shiro miso paste, but occasionally I’ll mix either yellow/shinshu miso or red/aka miso with it. They all taste yummy! It’s after 3am. Woo no sleep again. For dinner tonight I’m going to roast up some sweet potato to add to the miso for dinner. You can put pretty much whatever you want in it.

Recipe: Simple Homemade Miso Soup

This is a recipe I adapted from several miso soup recipes online several years ago. It’s really simple but delicious.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups water
  • 1 cup bonito flakes
  • 1 piece seaweed, konbu
  • 8 tablespoons miso paste
  • 12 shiitake mushrooms, sliced thin
  • green onion, chopped
  • cooked rice

Directions

  1. To make the dashi stock put your water in a pot, put your konbu seaweed in the water and bring to a boil. I usually let it boil for a few minutes, then I turn it down to low and add the bonito flakes. I let that sit for about 20 minutes.
  2. Get another container and strain the konbu seaweed and bonito flakes. Now you have dashi stock!
  3. Pour the dashi stock back into the pot. Add your mushrooms and let it simmer for about 30 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat down to low and add your miso paste. Stir it up until it’s dissolved. I let it sit on low for about 20 minutes.
  5. I serve this over rice with green onions sprinkled on top.

Tips

  • You can also add tofu, squash, wakame seaweed or pretty much whatever else you want to this. I usually just do the shiitake mushrooms, but occasionally the kids like tofu or wakame seaweed added.

Recipe: Crock Pot Taco Soup

The lovely Dreadfully Divine gave me this recipe! I made it last night for dinner and it was delicious. The kids scarfed it up. We had it again tonight for leftovers and I swear it’s better the next day! For some reason pinto beans don’t agree with Sascha’s stomach, so I just put in garbanzo beans instead. Om nom nom nom. Enjoy!

My friend Dreadfully Divine gave me this recipe. It originally calls for ground beef but thanks to her tip we use Morning Star Veggie Crumbles instead.

Short nails

Mani Monday Fatal Attraction, Love Em, Leave Em in Inked Pegasus Poop

I decided to attempt to do some sort of nail art. I managed to find a fine tipped nail brush amongst my stuff. So I did a couple of coats of Pegasus Poop and then used the little brush to do lines of Fatal Attraction, Love ‘Em/Leave ‘Em and Inked towards the base of my nail. It looks really cool with all the holos and then Inked on top! I like it. I must do other variations of this.

Base coat
Nothing!(If you have an extra bottle of base coat you don’t need and would be willing to send out of the goodness of your heart, this desperate penniless human being would be eternally grateful. T.T Yes, I am desperate.)

Uggghhh. More fantastic colors! Calcabrina is my favorite of this bunch. I’m a sucker for anything resembling purple as you all probably already know. The color changing and sheen and sparks are all so pretty. It has a very jeweled sheen over all of the different bases and it’s just beautiful. The swatches of Draghignazzo over different bases reminds me of a jeweled forest. A Druid’s circle. It’s so lush and beautiful. I wanna go dance among the pines under the moonlight. That’s how it makes me feel. Ciriatto for some reason makes me think of damp mossy rocks along a beach. And mermaid scales. These colors are so whimsical in my brain. What’s your favorite so far? Have you picked any up? Will you pick any up?

You can find Aromaleigh Cosmetics here. You can contact Kristen on her contact page here. Find Aromaleigh on Facebook and Twitter! Look it’s 5am and I’m done. Woot.

In coffee!

Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Syrup

You have no idea how delicious this syrup is. I didn’t even strain mine properly because I need to get a fine mesh strainer, but it’s still delicious I put some on some coffee ice cream and it was to die for. I’ve also used this in black tea with some milk and that also is delicious. I’m sure I’ll find many ways to use this. XD It’s also good in coffee. >.> I went through different recipes and decided to do a mix of brown sugar and white sugar. Enjoy!

If you like Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte you’ll love this syrup. It’s especially good over coffee ice cream.
