Car repairs

I called a Honda dealership to see how much it would cost to fix a hood release cable...they quoted me $175 and it would take 2-3 hours. What on earth! When the seller gave me the cable and said he was going to install it but just never got around to it I really didn't get it a second thought. I am tempted to fix it myself but can't seem to find anywhere on the internet where it gives a step by step "how to".

I'll probably wait until the inspection tomorrow and see if it passes. I don't forsee any huge repairs if it fails other than this hood thing since the seller was a mechanic did a full tune-up (all belts, water pump, radiator, etc). Let me tell you after driving various cars during the past year with no AC I am really loving having the cold air blast me in this 90 degree weather :)

denim skirt



Look at this adorable denim skirt from Down East Basics! It is hard to find a basic denim skirt that does not end 10 inches above the knee. I like the length because it is not super duper long but not a mini either. Of course since I wear green all the time I'll have to get the long sleeve tee as well!

me car

Well I have a new car finally. It's not brand new as in 2008 but it is new to me! Turns out there might be something shady going on with it but I'm looking forward to driving it, it gets 32 MPG and is automatic (my days of driving stick are few and far between) and black and super cute...Yippee!!

Hopefully the DMV will be a breeze, I am headed there this in about an hour. Next thing is to get it inspected and on the road...and then drive off into the sunset

Update: Ok it is a day later and I am going to the DMV today instead of yesterday. I will need your prayers that I can get the temp tags and get it through the state inspection without any shady-ness.

Comfort Food

Do you ever have a certain dish or food that you can eat and never get tired of? For me lately it has been the raw mousse and fresh fruit. Actually I do get pretty full but then I just stick it back in the fridge for next day.

I find that when I eat mostly raw I don't fall into the trap of eating when I am bored or just because it looks good.

Here are some other things I like to eat:
tuna fish out of the can with diced onions and tomatoes
home made crepes (Yum)
thai fried rice
fresh pineapple
tomato soup
guacamole
Carmel's cupcakes
Mom's bean/ham soup
coconut water (technically that is a drink) And also the last one I had when I opened it smelled like tuna fish. What on earth??? I should of returned it to the grocery store!!

Wait a minute, did you notice I did not stick raw chocolate chip cookie dough in there?? I am so proud of myself I have not partaken of that for a long while now! Also I have cut out hot chocolate (because most places make it with dairy) but that reminds me I can make it with almond milk instead.

Spoonflower

Back in June I signed up to be invited to the beta version of Spoonflower. Spoonflower is a company that prints your designs onto fabric. How exciting! Lo and behold they sent me an invitation around the end of June and I just found it today by cleaning out my emails.

I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head, now I just have to decide what to get printed. Here is a link to the flickr pool...you can see what other people have created.

Summer cleaning


This afternoon I was in the pantry on my hands and knees scrubbing the floor. I used Dr. Bronner's all purpose soap with hot water and a splash of bleach. The all purpose soap is lavendar scented so it made the whole kitchen area smell like I was in the south of France!

You can wash your hair, brush your teeth, do the laundry, clean the bathroom and much more with this all purpose soap. I was reading about it and I guess it got popular in the 60s but it has been around for awhile. Probably won't be brushing my teeth with it but it sure smells good. They also have peppermint and other scents.

Then I went outside and tried to tie up my tomato plants. They have grown into huge bushes and spread out all over the creation! It is my fault for not staking them as they were growing. Plus I haven't been that good about weeding them. Sometimes I get home from work around 8 at night and when it is 90 degrees out the last thing I want to be doing is yanking weeds.

Yesterday we went to the Farmer's market and I got a Kiefer yogurt drink. It is orange flavored and delicous. (I think they had it spelled wrong). Anyhow, "Kefir" is a milk drink that is fermented (sort of like yogurt). It was pretty yummy and to me tasted like runny yogurt with orange chunks. (The creamery sold pineapple, orange & blueberry flavors).

Grandpa's eye has a blood clot underneath the skin and it looks pretty trixy! He was in the emergency room this morning but they sent him home and said it was due to some of the medicine he is on. I will have to post a picture. He has the lightest blue eyes so it looks pretty intense.

Cacao - chocolate bars and nibs


At the local Lindt chocolaterie I purchased a 99% cacao bar. (Um...well I was trying to avoid all dairy). Little did I remember the slightly bitter taste of the raw cacao nibs I had bought a few weeks ago. So I tried out a tiny piece...and thought hmm maybe 99% is not for me. So now what am I going to do with this huge bar?

I guess I can mix it with something else to make it sweeter and heat it a little to make a chocolate glaze for a raw pie. One thing I tell myself about eating raw desserts all the time is that they are actually good for you because nothing is processed and the ingredients are good for you. Now I eat my raw chocolate creations without a care in the world.

The label on the cacao nibs said "Warning...eating cacao nibs may cause you to have an incredible day!".

No bake cookies (raw) experiment

Last night after dinner at the famous diner we popped over to Grandma's to hang out with Portland and Kenneth. I decided to try and make the chocolate oatmeal no bake cookies "raw style".

Here is the regular non-raw recipe (courtesy of cooks.com)

2 cups sugar (Yikes!!!!)
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except peanut butter and oats and cook over medium heat. Let boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and oats.

Spoon out quickly onto wax paper or aluminum foil. Cookies will harden as they set.

(Note: the above an excellent recipe, I could eat this dough all day long. However, all that sugar is terrible for you...no wonder it is so addicting!)

Now here is my recipe that I tried to experiment with:

1 C oats
1/2 C almond butter
1/2 C cocoa powder
1/2 C agave syrup

Needless to say, it turned out "interesting". We rolled the dough into balls and then stuck it in the freezer for 20 minutes. After taking them out and testing them, they hadn't hardened at all. Oh well. So I just ate some more dough.

Alana said she preferred the peanut butter over almond butter. I think it turned out way better than my coconut oil fudge that I dumped oats in. Time to do some more research and adjust the ingredients some more...

Update: Well it sat the fridge and I tried it out again. I think it gets better after it sits awhile because I polished off the bowl this weekend. I got some real maple syrup so I will try that next time.

75 degrees

It is so beautiful out today! I can't believe it is only 75 degrees but I'll take it. We have had some scorching days lately so this is a welcome change. I am planning on leaving work early to enjoy the rest of the day. Looking forward to getting a new car sometime soon as well. Yay!

Modesty

From another website regarding swimsuits:

"It is not only acceptable, but it is highly encouraged by the world system to dress in the equivalent of your underwear, and walk, swim, sit, and to "lay out" in front of anyone who cares to look on. We purposely strip our bodies, literally, and expose our flesh to public view, to friends and strangers alike. And we have faithfully passed that heritage on to our children and taught them that it is okay to be immodestly dressed-as long as it’s by a pool or in a lake or at the beach. And, of course, all of it has been in the name of "relaxation" and "healthy exercise".....

"Here’s a good test to let you "feel" the wrongness of it. How would you feel if you and your family saw someone in a bra and panties at the table next to you, down at the local family restaurant? Or if all the cashiers at your local grocery store were in their bras and panties? Probably you’d feel a bit embarrassed and think it a pretty inappropriate way to dress or place to shop. But put the same person poolside, add some color to that underwear, and suddenly it’s completely "acceptable" and appropriate.

Why?! What a double standard! It’s okay in this physical location, but not in that? It’s okay for people to see you at the beach in your underwear, but it’s not okay in the grocery store or restaurant. Or what about in the "church building?" Or would you and your children sit in your living room, along with total strangers, all of you in your most immodest underwear? Suddenly, that’s NOT okay. What has changed? Only our perception about what is acceptable."

Ahhh! I totally agree with this. Yes it is different when you are at the beach...it just feels natural to lounge around in your swimsuit whatever it may look like. (However you will not find me jogging down the beach in a bikini, lol). And then you start watching everyone else walk down the beach and suddenly start to mentally list their bodily imperfections or wonder why your body doesn't look at nice as theirs. Suppose I was at grocery store or elsewhere in public in a bikini..yes I would feel totally exposed! It's kind of the same as being in your bra and underwear. I've had dreams where I'm at the grocery store and realize I'm naked and wanted to die on the spot. I don't know what that dream means.

I think you should wear whatever you feel comfortable with but at the same time have some modesty. Looks like I won't be going to the beach until Christmas time so I have awhile to ponder what I'll be wearing. Probably a cute sundress because I'll already be super tan from the tanning bed. (Just kidding! I know tanning salons are bad for you!)

April Cornell

I haven't been inside this store in ages...I guess I always thought it was for "old ladies". But while browsing their website I saw some pretty dresses.

Midnight Dress


Looks like a nightgown...


Annalise Dress

Here is one of my favorite styles (I am partial to white lacey dresses or anything old fashioned) but I like the empire waist and square cut neckline as weel.

Cosi Salad

Today I had a Salmon Salad from the Cosi eatery. It was pretty good with the pesto dressing. Some days I am 100% raw and other days 90% like today. The main thing is I am excited to be eating healthier because I can feel the improvements. When I am not as raw it means I eat chicken or fish. (I don't eat anything else cooked/wheat/dairy/soy/refined sugar/salt).

Last night I made my own poke (hawaiian fish salad) out of tuna and diced onions and tomatoes. It was so good! Well I am off to look for some pesto recipes.

avo fudge parfait

I found another raw fudge recipe that is very simple: avocados, agave syrup, cacao powder and a pinch of sea salt.

I brought the ingredients with me to make it at lunch time. You're supposed to make it in a blender but I can probably just handmix it fine. I will let you know how it turns out. Also brought fresh strawberries and blueberries to turn it into a yummy parfait!

Update: 5:20 pm
I just mixed this up and let me tell you it is divine! Especially with fresh strawberries. This is a lovely substitute for brownie batter and my new favorite dessert. One of my avocados was bad so I used 1 avo, 1/4 C cocoa powder(pinch of sea salt) and 1/4 C agave syrup. It smelled so chocolate-y when I was stirring it. You probably want to use a blender or processor, I mixed it pretty good but didn't get all the chunks of avocado blended. Oh well it is so yummy anyways!

Cotton Dress


This cotton dress is soon to be mine. I had hearted it on etsy and then the seller emailed and said it was on sale so I snatched it up :) It would of taken more than $8 and a lot of patience for me to sew this myself. Which reminds me, I need to get started on my regency dress. A month ago I found some really cute floral fabric so now all I have to do is cut out the pattern and find my sewing machine.

Manic

Is it just me or is everyone manic depressive?? I always try to have a positive, cheerful outlook and treat others the way I want to be treated. Now obviously I fall short sometimes but I have put up with a lot of you know what.

One thing I can not stand is people who are constantly moody and blame it on "pms" or "it runs in their family". Or if you try and peacefully disagree with them (in a normal tone of voice), they get mad and cut you off and take off in a huff. I am so used to it, sometimes I think it is normal for people to act that way. It is not normal!!!

People need to start eating healthier and taking care of themselves! It would probably give them a better outlook on life...and possibly rearrange their brain chemistry (I can only hope). Sometimes happiness has to be a choice you make.

Coconut oil fudge

I went to the grocery store yesterday and actually found a bunch of stuff I had been getting at the co-op. (Like the coconut water I must drink every day). Anyways some of the prices were a little bit higher but with gas I think it would be the same. I just wish I lived closer to the health store.

This weekend I was looking for a raw fudge recipe. I found one but had to substitute the cacao powder with carob powder. I'm not really a big fan of carob powder, but it had to do. The truck has been on the fritz for a week now and I couldn't just run out to the store.

Anyways the I used equal parts coconut oil and honey with lots of carob powder and then sea salt and vanilla extract. It turned out ok but not really the consistency of fudge. I dumped a bunch of uncooked oats in it and made it into no bake oatmeal cookies. (Man those things are addictive, when I used to make them I would eat the whole batch of dough in one day!).

I put the rest of the fudge in the fridge. When I checked on it later, there was oil gathered at the top. It did not look appetizing at all. Then I started wondering, should I really be ingesting all of that coconut oil....ahhhh!!!

Another raw fudge recipe called for raisins and dates. The last time I mixed those two together for a raw torte, it made me really sick. I was out of raisins too. Guess I'll have to get on youtube and watch them make it so I can see which one looks like it will taste the best.

I got up at 8:30 am on Saturday, I guess it is from eating healthier and drinking lots of green smoothies. Normally I could of slept in til noon! But I was ready to wake up and I actually thought it was already late morning. Anthony from http://www.therawmodel.com/ was talking about how he only needs 4-6 hours of sleep, that is my goal! I'd love to go to bed at 2am and then pop back up at 6am.

Chipotle Calories

Today I had a craving for guacamole so I decided to look up the amount of calories in the Chipotle burritos. I usually get the veggie burrito bowl with black beans, corn salsa, sour cream, cheese, lettuce and guacamole. According to Chipotlelovers.com, it equals a whopping 875 calories with 389 of them being from fat!!! No wonder you always feel so full after eating there. I can only eat half of it before I get too full anyways.

It is always odd when a restaurant like that does not post their calories. Even Quiznos won't reveal that info. Someone said one of their sandwiches is almost 1300-1500 calories! I suppose you could always work out for 3 hours afterwards to burn off the calories but who wants to do that?

Ay Caramba!!

hair cuttery

I went to the Hair Cuttery at lunchtime today and got a new haircut. Of course the hairdresser said I should go get my thryoid checked...how come every single time I get my haircut they always say that? It never fails. She said because she was combing my hair and it was falling out left and right. I was happy that she blow dried it straight! The last two times I have been I have gotten a super young person and they always have a hard time getting it straight. Anyhow $19 for a shampoo and cut is a good deal. She was very nice and said I had gorgeous hair, maybe it was the transformation of me looking like a drowned rat to having bouncy hair...bwahahahahah.

sedu review

So last noche when I finally got home, I opened the new sedu!! It is superlight and you almost wonder if it is gonna do the job. Anyhow I fired it up and went to work on my hair. I put VS so sexy hair gloss on my hair to protect it (probably need to get something better or actual hair heat protectant) and straightened away. It really does make your hair very smooth and silky feeling! My arms weren't tired either. Yay!

I put my hair in a ponytail and checked it about 4 hours later. I noticed it was getting ever so slighty wavy (but still way straighter than my natural curls). I do wish that the straightener was thinner (my old cheapo straighter was probably about 1/2" width and this one is 1") so I could straighten hair closer to my head without fear or burning. It did get kinda close and that thing is hot! Next time I will probably blowdry my hair and then immediately straighten it so it has some body to it. Also I'll have to use this thing for awhile before I can give it an official review.

Update: 7/23/08 Ok so I have used the sedu a couple times since I first got it. Yes it does make my hair soft and silky but it doesn't stay "pin straight" very long. I think I might have to crank up the heat to the highest setting. Or I can try and have another person straighten my hair for me (that might be the trick).

raw raw

I am still mostly raw except for cooked oatmeal which I like to eat. I guess I should find something else that will fill me up in the mornings and keep me full til lunch time. Spent a lot of money at the healthfood store near us, probably $100 this weekend. The raw cacao goji snacks are sooo good!

Now the almond milk I bought tasted kind of weird...I couldn't place the taste until I figured it out..play doh!! Yikes! I've been drinking coconut water everyday though and it is identical to human blood plasma. I guess back in the 1940s soldiers got emergency transfusions with fresh coconut water.

Another good thing is that I no longer look like I am 4 months pregnant everytime I eat a meal. My stomach stays mostly flat. That hasn't happened since I did a cleanse a year ago. I also can't believe how my stomach isn't growling like crazy. I usually eat every couple of hours and graze on stuff when I get hungry. I guess my body is getting real nutrition. Still have to find a use for the bazillions of squash I keep harvesting from the garden.

I love eating lots of fruits! Only wish papaya was cheaper, I could eat that all day long. There is a huge bowl of cookie dough in the fridge and I am not even tempted. Imagine that.

My new hair straightener is coming in the mail today :)

Yummy Pinkberry Smoothie

Here is a recipe for a delicious smoothie I made last night...

1/4 C soy milk (you can use any sort of milk)
2 bananas
handful of frozen strawberries
honey for sweetener

Blend until smooth. Enjoy.

So far my mostly raw diet has been going pretty good. I had bananas for lunch yesterday and a salad & smoothie for dinner. It is amazing how my stomach has not been growling like it usually does if I don't eat right away. We are going to to lunch today for my friend's birthday at work so I'll order a huge salad.

Sweet Sedu



I have been using the my Burt's Bees natural shampoo and I love it! It makes my hair very light, even right out of the shower. Yesterday I looked around online for some high quality hair straighteners and I am going to go with the SEDU Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron. It is around $115 and I read through 10 pages of reviews and looked at lots of pictures of straight hair. That is a lot of money but also going to the hair salon and getting a blowout/flat iron is $45 so this will pay for itself within a week. Also, having lovely hair is priceless.

If it does what everyone is saying: make my hair pin-straight and keep the style even in humid weather or after putting it up then I will be very amazed! I straightened my hair before going to the beach one time and about 2 seconds after being in the salty air my hair turned curly and frizzy. I've considered getting the japanese thermal hair straightening but all the hairdressers I ask say my hair is way too fine.

Update: I just called folica.com and even if I get the next day shipping it won't get here until Monday. Seems like you can only find this brand online. Until then, I will be dreaming of straight hair!

Salty

Last night I made guacamole/pico but couldn't quite get it to taste like Chipotle's or Rio Cafe's. I did dump a bunch of garlic powder on it to make it halfway edible. The cilantro leaves weren't chopped up enough so next time I will cut them really fine. After that I did the farm chores (I am doing them for my parents while they are in Florida, lucky ducks) and felt kind of sluggish and a headache coming on.

When I went to give the chicks their chicky feed and water two of them jumped out of their little pen. I caught one and put it back but then didn't have time to get the other one before SIR SALTY ran over and give it a wild chase. The chick managed to hide for a little bit before Salty sniffed it out and terrorized it. I kept hearing "peep peep PEEP" and then saw Salty have it in his mouth. I almost had a heart attack because I was worried Salty would kill the chick but I think he was just playing with it. Somehow I managed to catch the poor thing and it looked like a drowned rat since it had been running around the wet bushes. Ay caramba!

I did let Salty out again and he immediately ran over to the chicken pen and clawed at the wire trying to get to the chicks. He might have a soft spot for small animals because when one of the barn cats had kittens in the yard he nicely picked them up in his mouth and put them on the porch. (The cat must of been crazy because she just had them in the middle of the yard and left them there). Then he stood guard and barked at anyone that tried to come near them.

Today's lunch and dinner looks like lots of bananas and salad. I think my skin might look better from not eating too much cooked/dairy foods but it could be my imagination.

Westie Cupcakes

Here are some cupcakes my Mam made. Aren't they cute? She just loves anything with Westies! Her inspiration for them was her west highland terrier named "Sir Salty".






Good job Mammy!

Raw Food...again...

I am slowly getting excited again about transitioning to eating raw foods. I tried it a few years ago and got nausea and threw up a lot so I caved in. It was probably the sushi I had that was made out of raw cauliflower or some other gourmet concoction I whipped up. (This is after spending $300 on groceries at the local health food store). Not sure how long I will be motivated since I seem to be addicted to sugar. One thing that helps is eating dates whenever I get a sweets craving.

Today for breakfast I had my usual staple of oatmeal and honey with soy milk instead of cow's milk. Since I've felt sick to my stomach today the only other thing I've had is 1/2 a banana. After work I plan to go to the grocery store to get some more fruits to have as well as a huge salad for dinner.

The Burt's Bees Knees


Last night I went to CVS to use up my extra care bucks before they expired. I looked all over for a natural/organic shampoo or anything Burt's Bees related and didn't see anything. Just as I was getting discouraged I noticed this travel kit hiding in the makeup aisle. It was $12.99 and since I had about $9 of extra bucks I got it for cheap.

The best thing is the shampoo and conditioner do not contain Sodium lauryl/Laureth sulfate or Paraben. The honey milk lotion smells yummy too. My hair finally feels clean! I am probably going to use this from now on and skip the baking soda trix. (It made my hair the texture of straw...eek!)

I give this two thumbs up!

Update: I went to another CVS today at lunchtime and lo and behold they have a huge Burt's Bee's display with huge bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Of course I felt bad that I bought the little travel kit when I could of bought a large shampoo and conditioner for the same price but live and learn. I know our local CVS did not have that display.

Bangs & Braids

Here is an elegant braided hairdo courtesy of Anne Hathaway. I'll have to try it out.



These next two remind me of 1950s / 1960s hairdos








I wish I could roll out of bed in the morning with hair as straight as this...



Love this crown braid that Ashlee wears...




It's a braid pony!



Peasant Clothing

I found this white peasant skirt and top at Target. There is something about peasant skirts and shirts that I love. The elastic waistband is pretty stretchy in case you want to hit up a buffet.


This peasant top is super duper comfy! I got one in the madras print as well for when I want to look like a farm gal.


I have been eating at Subway a lot. The $5 footlong sub just seems like a great deal. Then I looked at the menu closer and the regular price is 5.89 so you only save a dollar. I guess it is just good marketing.
The "No sugar, no flour Diet" by Dr. Gott is a book I read recently and I am trying to stick to that diet. Not "diet" as in lose weight but "diet" as in way of eating healthy. The only bread I eat is when I go to Subway and the no sugar thing is kind of hard. The book recommends making treats with Splenda and other evil sugar substitutes which I avoid. Anyhow supposedly people lost lots of weight because eating bread all the time seems to add on the pounds.

no poo (shampoo that is)

Ok so it has been 3 days since I last used shampoo. I first read about the no shampoo on a curly hair website and then again on Babyslime's blog. The last two days I have used the baking soda mixture and rinsed with ACV. I was kind of worried I would smell like vinegar (I had used ACV a long time ago as a rinse and didn't dilute it that much so I smelled a little like vinegar). I also used a wet washcloth to try and distribute the oils from the roots to the tip.

Last night my hair dried nicely and I have had perfect curls around my face which usually doesn't happen unless I scrunch it with mousse. But this morning upon closer inspection my hair was looking pretty oily. Since I have been blessed with oily hair (my dad is asian), I usually shampoo once a day. The only time it I can go a few days without shampooing is when I go to the hair salon and have them work their magic.

I'm about to go out and look for a natural bristle hairbrush. I have about $9 in CVS extra care bucks so that will come in handy. Lately I have been wearing a headband and letting my hair dry curly so I haven't been brushing my hair. Oops. Anyways I hope this no shampoo thing works. I would love it if my hair looked manageable and not oily because of the baking soda cleanser. We'll see!

Old Navy

I went to the Old Navy clearance section online and picked out a few things I like. This weekend I am planning on going through all my clothes and figuring which ones I don't wear that I can sell on ebay or donate to Goodwill. Then I am going to hit up the outlets & Old Navy near me.

I like the neckline on this t-shirt. Pink is one of my favorite colors and I tend to wear it a lot since it goes with my skin tone. (or so I think)




Aviators! Forever 21 has also a cheap pair...I'll have to check these out. The more I look at them the more manly they look.


For some reason these shoes remind me of morocco. Or J. Crew-ish.





This lauhala clutch is cute. Don' t think I could fit my purse contents in there though!


This ballet wrap top would be great for sleeveless or strapless dresses if you get cold. They only had size small left on the website so I wonder what the selection is like at the actual store.



Espradille Flats...I wonder how comfy these are. Very parisian chic!



The end. Hopefully I'll be able to find a few of these at the store. I am at work now waiting for a messenger to bring our checks and then I am outta here for a lovely 3 day weekend.

July

I can't believe it is July already. Seems like just yesterday I was in Florida (last winter) dreaming about summer time. Time has flown! I am starting to get excited about Fall as it has been pretty hot here recently. And to think I was planning on going to Florida this month...Turns out I'm not. Probably a good thing.

While browsing etsy I found this cute vintage dress, but alas someone bought it yesterday.



The description said the model was the same size and height as me, so I know what it would of looked like.



What am I thinking, I have loads of clothes but I wish we had better vintage stores around here. Do I need to move to Portland, Oregon or something?
