FAV Amazon Face Deals

If you missed my Facebook Lives on my FAV Amazon face items, don’t worry!  It’s all here along with my usual basic routine. But first, if you haven’t signed for AMAZON Prime. What are you waiting for!!! Below is a sign up link to get these amazing FAV’s of mine and get some really good most of the time FREE shipping deals sent directly to your home.

My Fav Amazon Deals (1)

First thing in the morning I wake up and wash my face with Aveeno Face Wash and rinse.  I then apply my fav face cream Retinol Advanced, no matter if I’m wearing makeup or not for the day.  I won’t put it on if I’m going straight to the gym after I drop off the kids.  I’ll save it for after my gym shower and then I’ll smear it on.  Fun, huh!

Let’s be honest…it takes a village!

On a very cold day and my skin needs more help I’ll use some Olay cream as a secondary backup. But again, after I’m done with my exercise. No sense in wasting on sweat!

Next, if I’m going out or want to wear makeup, I’ll then apply a good size dime drop of It Foundation and let it set before I use anything else. 

At the end of the day I’ll wash off my makeup again with either Aveeno Face Wash or the Aveeno scrub, if I have more makeup than usual.  I follow with an astringent…sometimes. I know. I know, I need to get better at it.  I never had much acne prone skin. Knock on wood!  Afterwards, I apply my night creams of Olay Regenerist sometimes or if I feel my skin needs something more, I slap on again my Fav Face Cream or Retinol Advanced!  A little Vitamin E oil and good night! If there’s a zit, I use Tea Tree Oil and let is soak in all night long.

And my favorite before a big event or date night I use my face lift in a jar! My Alpha Hydroxy Cream. This is better than them Diva Rings.  And no  a Diva Ring is not contraceptive related either.  Google it! This fav cream literally gives you fresh renewed skin without going under the knife and shelling out thousands! WARNING: I don’t recommend using everyday and you must use SPF the next few days if outdoors. All instructions should be on the jar. And don’t use before going to an outdoor sunny event. And remember less is best.  It has 7.8% Gylcolic Acid. Rule of thumb here is don’t go over 10% if using it sparingly at home.

This is how I use it. Let’s say I’m having date night with my Big Kahuna or I just want my skin to feel refreshed for the weekend and without going to see an esthetician.  I would prepare 3 days ahead of my event, date, or weekend.  And do I this consecutively for 3 nights.  That would be Wed., Thurs., & Friday. I take a nickel size of the cream on my finger tips and rub in (not on eyelids or  inside the nose…who does that!).  I also use it on my neck and back of hands. This will soak in all night and do it’s work.  It will revive and encourage new cells.  I would begin minimally because it has a slight tingling effect.

I’m becoming a bit more consistent and daring and now I’m trying charcoal mask sheets and mud cream masks every hump day. That’s Wednesday, you know that right?

A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Let me know which one’s you tried and like.

Mom’s Day Ideas

Don’t forget Mom this year!  And since she is a chaos coordinator between the siblings and referee on a weekly basis, we should just bless her socks off with some real treats like earrings.

Moms

Treats that she will see and use daily such as a ring.  Things that will help her through out her day and think of you while you’re away.Mom's Day Ideas (1)Sometimes as a mom, working in corporate America, stay at home mom, or a work from home mother, needs to feel beautiful and appreciated.  She does a lot.  Nothing is more rewarding to me than drinking coffee or tea that was given to me from my kids. I can grab the cup close to my heart as I drink and miss them while they are at school and know that I am loved.

Not all moms use jewelry and are perfectly fine with receiving other types of gifts such as nicely scented candle to relax to after work or after dinner and prop up feet and relax away for the night.  And the latest trend are cutting boards!  Why not give her a beautifully engraved cutting board for her to honorably display in the kitchen.

Spring to Summer Decor

Balance Scale

Everything here on clearance for Spring Decorating Time!

Decorating in general is so much fun and therapeutic!  I’ve even started a paint project at home because I still want my items but a different color.  One doesn’t need a lot of things but a little here and there to spruce up one’s comfort zone.  This gorgeous Balance Scale Statue.  This has a very minimalist look but imagine dressing it up for winter time.  Totally doable!

Another spruce up item are White Marble and Mango Wood Cake Stand to beautifully decorate any kitchen counter(s) or display some knick knacks. Buy a few at these prices and layer them up! Pop up a Black Mosaic Framed Wall Mirror for an entryway to welcome all guests.  Best thing is, it can be completely repainted if one is super duperry handy. Some Clear Glass Stick Candle Holders for a mantel, a buffet, or staircase.  When the candle is burned replace with a simple topiary for any time during the year. Feel the vibe and love your home.

So we’ve covered an entryway, a mantel, and kitchen counters but what about the front porch entrance to fully welcome a guest or kick up one’s feet outside on the back porch?

life is better on the porch mat.jpg

 

Wipe one’s feet on this beautiful Life is Better on the Porch Doormat, and come on inside! The only thing on today’s agenda is complete relaxation!  This is the perfect mat for layering with them gingham mats for a stand out appeal.

 

 

A back porch area for them BBQs and family socials can easily be dressed up with this gorgeous and eye catching Sage Floral Medallion Outdoor Rug.

Love your place, your home, your comfort zone!

Chicken Pad Thai For This Guy

Chicken Pad Thai For This Guy Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners

You’re invited to our Sunday Dinner’s! Welcome once again and you are always welcome to dine with us! First things first. Gather all ingredients.

Ingredients:

2 lbs. of raw chicken.  I usually buy the seasoned fajita pack. Thighs or breast. Whatever is your preference.

1 bottle of Peanut Sauce.  If you can’t find any make like so:

  • 3 Tablespoons fish sauce – I would add this a tbsp at a time, stir, taste, adjust, stir, taste.  Some people don’t like that much fish sauce but a a tbsp is just fine too.
  • 1 Tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 5 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce , or more, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter , optional but what’s the point if there isn’t any peanut butter! I don’t ever skimp out on this.

1 lb. of Rice Noodles – This bag serves a family of 5.

2 – 4 sprigs of green onions

Toasted Sesame oil

1/2 cup salted spanish peanuts


Chicken Pad Thai For This Guy Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners (2)

 

 

 

1. Gather all ingredients and begin to soak noodles in very hot water.  I usually boil up some water before hand, turn off heat, toss in noodles to soften.  This will take a sometime to soften up so do this first while you move on to step 2.

 

 

 

 

 


 

Chicken Pad Thai For This Guy Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners (3)  2. Chop up raw chicken into good size bites. Since it’s already seasoned you don’t need to worry about salt and pepper. Toss in pan with a generous amount of oil. Cook until done. Set aside. Here’s my pan!

Chop up peanuts and green onions. Set aside. Here’s my Chopper!

3. This is what your station should look like by now.


 

Chicken Pad Thai For This Guy Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners (6)

 

 

 

4. Drain the soften noodles. Layer in some peanuts, all the sauce (or you can save some for the chicken), green onions. Fold in well. Careful not to break up the noodles. You can mix in chicken or on the side!

Bon Appetit!

Ingredients

2 pounds of thin center cut pork chops (If you have more time use boneless pork shoulder)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon dried oregano (I used Mexican Oregano because that’s all I had on hand.)

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 cloves garlic, peeled, & nicely smashed (Just smashed enough to help it release it’s flavor)

1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes

1 medium onion, sliced

1 cup fresh orange juice

1 lime, juiced

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

2 bay leaves

1 long Cuban bread roll or any kind of roll that will hold juices and not break/get soggy

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

8 thin slices Swiss cheese (I cut mine in half because I used smaller rolls.)

1 cup bread and butter pickles or regular pickles

Thin slices deli ham

Olive oil

Step 2:

Toss in your gently minced garlic along with your olive oil and peppered flakes in medium hot pan to release and combine all the flavors.

Next measure out all your seasonings: Salt and freshly ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 tablespoon dried oregano

Rub seasoning mixture all over the pork and toss into the garlic/pepper/oil pan.

Then slice some onions.

Step 5: Check on your pork and add adjust flavor as needed if needed. Don’t eat the bay leaves. Set them aside.

Next smear mustard onto rolls and brush some pan juices from the pork chop (of course when pork chops are done). Top with cheese & pork chop.
