Set it & Forget it: Quick and Easy Crock Pot Meal

Pot Roast for Days!

      Crock Pot meals are my favorite because the prep time is minimal and the end result pays off with enough food for a day or two. You also have meat that is extremely tender and in some cases, falls right off the bone. Meal planning is not my strong suit, but I noticed that crock pot meals do make meal planning slightly easier. Once the meal is done it can be divvied up into containers and set in the fridge or freezer for a later date. So far my favorite thing to cook in my crock pot are roasts and stews. Here is the recipe for my latest hearty crock pot meal!

Ingredients:

Pot Roast 

Mushrooms

Onions

Carrots

Sweet Potatoes

 Minced Garlic

Olive Oil

Beef Bullion

 

Directions:

Chop all veggies. 

Smother meat in olive oil. 

Poke holes in meat with knife and insert garlic in holes

Place meat in crock pot.

Surround meat by veggies.

Cook on HIGH for 8 hours.

     Of course, normal potatoes can be substituted for the sweet potatoes. I used what I had in the fridge in this case. One of my favorite things to do while cooking is throwing together meals based on what weird ingredients I might have in the fridge. I don't really shop for food with a plan laid out for each day of the week and I usually just poke around my kitchen until creativity strikes. Most of the time I get lucky and it turns out delicious as this dish!

Make Up Tips with Faith: How to Highlight & Contour



My adorable friend Faith has a YouTube channel full of make up tips. If you have not subscribed to Faith's channel please do!

 


In this video Faith teaches us how to Highlight and Contour. 

Here are my video recap take aways!

 

Bronzer vs. Contour Powder 

Like Faith, I also use a bronzer to contour instead of contour powder, however I personally use Lancôme Star Bronzer when I am not using my Lancôme Blush and Highlighter Kit which comes with all three products needed for the look. Whether you use contour powder or a bronzer is your own personal preference which Faith  stresses in the video. In order to create depth Faith uses an angled brush to apply product. I won’t go into detailed instructions because she does give great instructions in the video. You can see right away how the contour defines her cheek bone. She reminds us to make sure that we are blending our contour product. The technique that she uses in the video is to use the same brush after cleaning it on some paper towel or the back of her hand. You can also use your powder brush with some light all over powder on it to help blend.

 

Finishing Powder and Technique

Faith uses a pressing motion for her finishing powder and highlighting powder so it doesn’t give a cakey muddy result when applied on top of a liquid foundation or cream. After the contour powder and highlighter is applied there is a clear area in the center of each where she applies her blush using the Morphie E4. Again, using the blush, she uses a pressing motion into her skin in an upwards direction before she swipes. This allows the blush to set as well as blend with the contour and under eye highlighter.

 

Highlighter

The highlighter Faith uses in the video is the BeccaMoonstone, Physicians Formula and Superb Powder, which you will notice all three have an iridescent shimmer quality. Blending is important because the shimmer is very noticeable and can be streaky.

 

Tips for Nose Contour

Don’t press! Instead of pressing use a short swiping motion so that the product stays right where you want it.

Faith also has her very own eye shadow line which you can purchase by contacting her directly on her Facebook page.

How many crop tops did you buy this summer?!

Baggy sweaters are back in!

A plaid shirt or turtle neck for the school girl look, and my favorite part: Doc Martens!

Tip: Don't spend a fortune at Forever21 or H&M to get the look! You can obtain this style on the cheap by visiting your favorite thrift store. The amount of 90s attire available is overwhelming and at your disposal. Not only that, most thrift stores give back to the community, so you don't have to feel bad about spending 40 bucks on a pair of shorts from the mall, when you can find them at an affordable price at your local Kawanis.

Layer your looks. Have a large plaid shirt handy for cold weather. And don't forget to pick up some Troll Earrings and a choker necklace!

Book Review: Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility & Transgenic Beings by Budd Hopkins

 

Book Review: Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility & Transgenic Beings by Budd Hopkins My rating: 3 of 5 stars Oh Budd... Interesting read but the scientific "facts" brought up by his wife do not necessarily relate to the subject at hand during discussion. I feel like sometimes she is grasping at straws. This book does however, make you think. There Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility & Transgenic Beings by Budd Hopkins My rating: 3 of 5 stars are a few interesting stories from experiencers, but nothing outrageously convincing. Trust me, I am not a very skeptical person and I enjoy paranormal stories and believe that there is intelligent life out there somewhere. Budd and his wife just did not do a good job of convincing me any further. View all my reviews Save
