Easy Healthy Dinner !

Hello girls. I haven't been posting lately on my blog due to overload of work. When I get home all i want is a relaxing bath and bed. Thankfully I have a long weekend. I didn't have to work today nor Monday due to Labor day. When I am home I love to cook it is one of my hobbies that I have for the past years. I admit i was not a good cook but little by little I have learned. I am all for healthy, easy recipes that won't take too long to make especially on my free day. So today I decided to share with you my dinner. My camera was on my dining room and I said to myself why not share my recipe. so here it is Stuffed red peppers.

Fresh Organic peppers from the Farmers Market

93% Organic Ground Beef

Stuff the peppers with meat !

Dinner Is ready !


 1 or 1/2 pound of lean ground meat. I used beef, but you can also make them with chicken or turkey.
  season the meat with garlic, salt and pepper to taste and a bit of lemon juice. 

 Preheat your pan on medium and add
1 tbs - Olive Oil 
add the meat and let it brown for 10 to 15 minutes then add 1/2 cup of natural tomato sauce or Pomi which is also natural tomato sauce you can get it at your near buy supermarket. let it simmer for another 15 minutes in total 30 minutes. 

Meanwhile preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Then you will want to cut the top of your Peppers and deseed them. You can scrape all the inside with a small spoon. 

fill the peppers with meat and spray a bit of olive oil in the baking pan. Put it in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

And their you have the stuffed peppers. 

It's an easy recipe and also you can eat it how ever you want. I had  left over brown rice and avocado and decided to have it with that.

Enjoy !

Have a nice weekend

BTW first recipe on Blog !! YAY

Review On L'oreal Paris Ombre kit

Wild Ombre 

Flash On

Flash Off 

Hello everybody. I know I have been a bit distant this week but I have been running around going to different interviews. Hopefully I get a call back, fingers crossed. Anyways I had  my eye on the Ombre look for a long time I had seen many celebrities with this type of hairstyle. I decided after months of trying to decide if i would get it or not. To go to  my local drugstore and buy the L'oreal Paris Ombre Kit. It's price is around 13 dollars. which is way cheaper then getting it done at the hair salon, that was a big plus for me.

  On Friday night while watching mean girls I decided to try it. Imagine me sipping wine with the gloves on. Here is the thing I have never dyed my hair by myself and the last time I decided i wanted to color my hair was when I was 15 years old. I wanted highlights, I basically had to beg my mom to get streaks in my hair. All I had now was my natural hair color. So i was scared that my hair wouldn't take the color.

I followed all the instructions which they are pretty easy. I parted my hair and started dying my hair using the brush it brings. Which it's great because you can do a subtle look or go all the way. I waited for 25 minutes as it says and checked it then I waited for another 5 minutes and washed it off with the conditioning shampoo that it brings. I was a bit scared after washing it off, but when I blow dried and  flat iron my hair I was happy with my new look. My friends couldn't believe i did it on my own. I am happy with the results and with this kit. Is affordable and it leaves you with a new look.

Pardon the pictures I was so happy that I took them really fast.

Soooo if you want that Ombre effect for this fall go for it. It is stylish and affordable.

Favorite Drugstore Beauty Products...

Hello girls, I hope everyone is enjoying the last days of August.  To tell you the truth I am ready for Autumn to arrive. Meanwhile I have fallen in love with a couple of beauty mostly drugstore products. A couple weeks ago I was with one of my Best friends waiting to get our eyebrows done and we had to wait about 20 minutes we decided to go to our a nearest drugstore. And since i have to buy something when i enter a drugstore i decided to get  a couple of new things that I have never have tried before . Such as the Aussie hair products. I usually use Moroccan oil or other hair product, but that day I was also having a bad hair day and I couldn't manage my curly hair. My best friend says, I heard Aussie products are pretty good. And that is where I decided to try the brand.

I went picked up the hair insurance and the leave in Mousse. I love the texture it gives to my curls. It doesn't leave your hair sticky or hard.  I am happy that I found new hair products that are amazing. I also tried for the first time the Rimmel London BB cream and Primer. It leaves my skin smooth and it gives  me a medium coverage which its what I want It also last all day. also I got them at 40% off. Gotta love the deals.

I also got a new moisturizer its the Estee Lauder Clear Difference advanced oil control hydrator it is great if you have oily skin it leaves it matte.  Its absolutely lovely even my mom has applied it a couple of times and adores it. And the last couple of things I got was the new Revlon "lash potion" mascara,  I have actually used it almost everyday in the month of August. Another good drugstore mascara.

 My last two products that adore is the new Maybelline Master Smoky eye liner. What I like about this is that you have 2 products in one it is a regular eyeliner but it also has a small sponge at the other end which can give you a smoky affect. And or last, a  my new MAC lipstick "honey love" is a beautiful nude that goes with any kind of makeup. Can't say no to a nude lipstick. 

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend !

The Perfect Day to Night Outfit

day to night outfit

As I have said a million times before that I love to shop for outfits that can have different outcomes from casual to chic or even the perfect after work night outfit. I am a big fan of J.Crew I love everything and one of the things that I love is their skirts. Especially this skirt and since I am in love with prints I think this is the perfect skirt for work or  for a night outfit. It has a great balance and the print on it is just perfect. 

I have created this look for the typical young woman that is fashionable yet works in the corporate world or something similar or that simply loves to wear print skirts. On the left you can see I have added black flats, an over sized watch and a great bag big enough to fit all of her stuff. ( my kind of bag) You can also include a cardigan for the chilly days at the office like this one from J Crew.

On the right I added a bib necklace. It  is a great statement piece, it gives the outfit a touch of glam. A black clutch of course by Clare Vivier, nude pair of heels and a bold lipstick. 

I think this outfit is versatile and great for day and night. Good for the office at day or wine time with friends or the boyfriend. What you Gals think ? leave a comment

Sexy Girls Night Out Outfit


 shirt jeans / shoes / purse bangle

Happy Friday Ladies ! This week for my Inspiration board I decided to do a "sexy" outfit . Well my twist to a casual night. Boyfriend jeans are great all year round you can dress them up or down, and that is my motto when I am shopping. I like to search for clothing pieces that i can wear on a casual day or on a dress up day. I love leopard print I think it's sexy and it gives a lot of character to your outfit. I mean I am sucker for animal print it is just gorgeous. I think this outfit is great to go out with your girlie's on a girls night out or date night. It's casual, fun, sexy and great to spend a great night full of laughter. One of my favorite pieces in this outfit is the silk Tibi top. it has a touch of elegance yet it still fun. If you like to show you back a bit this is the perfect one to wear. So get ready to rock the streets. Great for this weekend. Enjoy your last couple of weeks left of the summer.

BTW the Mac lipstick is Ruby woo

J.Crew Celine Esque Bag


                                                                        Check It Here !

Hello Gals long time ago I wrote a post on this Celine bag because I was obsessed with it. Well since I live on a budget due to that I am a recent college graduate trying to move to a new city that means I have to save as much as I can so I couldn't buy the bag . I still brag about the Celine bag but another Celine handbag that I love is the Trapeze bag. It is gorgeous and spacious but is way out of my budget. 

I decided to give up UNTIL I saw this bag at last week at J.Crew while I was just roaming around the store. I literally had to stop and the first thing that I thought was CELINE it looks like one and it almost has the same design it is called the GOODWINN BAG. 

I was afraid to look at the price but they are under 200 dollars. I mean they are not as big as the Celine bag but it fits a lot of things and I can use it as a cross body bag you can dress it down or up. AND I WANT IT ! I think the price is great and it's gorgeous. Which one is your favorite ?

XOXO Andrea

Friday Favorites !

Favorite quote of the Week

Mr Big and Carrie

Breakfast In Bed 

 Favorite Blooms

Lovely Outfit found at Anthropologie 

Happy Friday Everyone !! This week has been super relaxing,  Sleeping late, watching Sex and the City all over again and having long walks with my dog in the park. I got to snap a bit out of the craziness of the city and apreciate it and take care of myself a bit more. Sometimes we get caught up with work and life that we forget to enjoy the little things in life and for me that is morning walks and sleeping in late. Have a wonderful weekend. 

XOXO Andrea

Simple and Summery


I am a girly girl and love to put on some heels and a fun dresses  but for most of the time in the summer I love to rock my denim shorts and a simple tee. I went on a mini weekend getaway with my best friend and the first thing I packed was my favorite denim shorts from JCrew. I think you can dress them up or down. 

As I said before I am all about being comfortable and especially in this summer weather.  This is my favorite summer outfit it's comfortable, easy going and casual for the city. Especially those flip flips their an upgrade of your everyday flip flops.

Their is one thing here that is driving me nuts and it is the bag. I have recently seen a lot of girls in the city with this bag. It its simply gorgeous i have seen it on Olivia Palermo I just think is a must have. I was looking for it and it was sold out every where but I finally found it. Can't wait until it arrives. 

XOXO Andrea
