Chicken Quiche Recipe

One of my new year goals was to cook a meal for my parents once a week. I've done it for the past three weeks so far and it has been great! For someone who doesn't enjoy cooking as much as others (aka me), it truly does feel like an accomplishment each time.

Today I'm sharing with you the recipe for a chicken quiche! It was quite good, and you can always have breakfast food anytime.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

My brows are on point with the help of the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Easy Shape & Fill.

Where to buy: Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart

Cost: $30

Packaging: The pencil is double ended: one side is the twist-up nib, the other is a spooly. I really like the look of the modern geometric caps!

Life Lately (Jan '17)

What have I been up to lately?

I celebrated  3 years with C at the Christmas Market at the end of December. We were there for an hour before we decided to leave because it was too cold haha.

Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadows (The Star in You Collection)

Never did I imagine that I would be filming a video for you. I know that I can be an awkward turtle in front of a camera but thanks to DubDub and their team, I was able to shoot my very first video! Everything was done using their DubSuite app on my phone: filming, editing, and publishing! I don't know when will be the next time I produce another video, but nonetheless it was a great experience to see and do the work that goes into making one.. and believe me, it's a lot more than you think.

At the DubLoft studio in Toronto, I also got the opportunity to check out Inglot's newest makeup products. Out of all, I really liked the Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadows from their new The Star In You Collection. A light wash of these loose pigment powders over the lids creates a shimmery (but not over the top) look. It's so pretty, and like the name of the collection it shines like the stars in a night sky! I know it's cheesy but it's true. :P They can also be intensified by adding duraline to make it into a liquid formula. Even in the pot or on the lids, the pigments have a duochrome effect since the colour changes in different angles, but it's not dramatic. These eyeshadows along with the other releases from the Star In You Collection have been added to the permanent line of Inglot's makeup! You can purchase them through the video by clicking on the tags and it will take you to the Amazon page.

Hope you enjoyed watching! Should I continue doing more videos in the future?

2017 is fast approaching! I reflected on the past year and have come up with these goals for the new year. Hopefully you can all keep me to these the best you can!

- Get a custom URL for this little blog.
- Exercise on the days I don't work or if I have an opening shift.
- Read the entire Bible in a year.
- Take a trip the the Bite Beauty Lip Lab in downtown Toronto and custom make my own lipstick.
- Cook once a week for my family.
- Make my own tea/coffee more often than buying.
- Keep track of finances weekly.
- Start minimizing my makeup collection to only products I love.

Some I will succeed in maintaining, some will just die off after the first month... but the most important thing is that I try! My Orla Kiely planner will definitely help me keep track and maintain all of these resolutions.

Is there anything you want to accomplish in the new year?

Until next time, Des
