boyfriend and the band had another show last night... they played a ramones tribute show at the dunedin brewery... it was so much fun

im a super slacker when it comes to taking out my camera so i didnt take any but these are ones that i found around facebook! haha




they are so crazy and so much fun to watch live! i always have a blast

this is my wendy girl... a couple other friends came to hang out but like i said i suck at using my camera! i made a promise to myself i would bring out my camera more but im slacking... gotta work on that!
ohhh food how i love you!

here are a few yum dishes ive made and one that i cant wait to try over again!

feta tomato omelet, potatoes and mimosas! this dinner was awesome
add some italian spices to the omelet... sauté up some onions and add salt and pepper to the potatoes and you have yourself an easy and delish breakfast for dinner! 

veggie rancheros
cut up large chunks of your fav veggies... i chose zucchini, squash, red and orange peppers and onions... coat with olive oil and chili powder... cook in oven for 15 min, flip veggies then put back for 15 more minutes... put back into mixing bowl and coat with salsa
mix the veggies with corn and black beans and served it with a egg or two cooked however youd like... i prefer eggs over easy. this is a weird combo but really good!

this last one was pretty good... its an italian polenta casserole served with spaghetti squash


i wasnt a big fan of the pre made polenta that i bought... im going to make it from scratch next time.
this one is very simple too... i had a recipe for a polenta casserole but barely followed directions! haha
for this i put a layer of polenta at the bottom of the dish... next layered it with sautéed squash, zucchini, mushrooms, onions and garlic... then a layer of mozzarella and diced tomatoes... then repeat but skip the second layer of sautéed veggies. serve over the spaghetti squash. yum

i am not a girly girl by any means but i do love my bathroom time!

here are a few of my bathroom must haves!

**lush is an awesome company... a hippy company... everything is hand made with vegetarian/organic products, uses little to no preservatives or packaging. some of the packaging is compostable. and they do not test on amimals!


karma komba solid shampoo... to make me smell like a hippy!

jungle solid conditioner

these are travel tins to put your lush products in... love them

**this brand is call boots, its from the UK... i buy it a target... i use a bunch of their products... they also use organic materials and do not test on animals! all of their products smell amazing! nothing too sweet and overpowering just light and fresh smelling!

this is their body scrubs... yum

their body cream is amazing too! i also use their face wash, toner and eye makeup remover... i highly recommend all of their products!

 **preserve is another lovely company i am obsessed with... ive been using their toothbrushes for years and i recently bought a razor. this company uses recycled yogurt cups to make all of their products and when your done you can go to their website, print out a label and mail your toothbrushes and razor handles back to be recycled! AND if no one recycles #5 plastic (yogurt containers, hummus tubs) in your area you can mail that to them too! how exciting


** i dont think i could ever go back to using regular toothpaste or mouthwash after switching to toms of maine... and to continue with the pattern of this post... they use high quality natural ingredients, no artificial ingredients or preservatives and no animal ingredients or animal testing! whoo hoo



**and for my last must have bathroom product... kiss my face patchouli deodorant!  to complete my hippy smellyness! haha love it! and it works really well too


what products are you obsessed with? i love hearing about new products... do share!

my boyfriend got me into THE AQUABATS about a month or so ago and i really liked them... they are so silly and their songs rock!

here are some of my favorite silly songs...
