I found a way to integrate two of my interests together by making this aromatherapy diffuser necklace. Jewelry and essential oils. Haha! So much fun.
For this diffuser I used a drop each of Patchouli which is great for relaxation and to improve your mood, Lavender for it's calming properties and Tangerine which aids in relief of anxiety. It's a relaxing, feminine, sweet yet earthy scent. Love it!!!

Hey everyone! So I know I have been MIA for some time. I was doing the whole "focusing on me" thing. Lots of good things came of it so I have no regrets.
As part of my new healthy and clean way of eating and living I am always looking for ways to avoid man made things. For example protein powders. I know they are jam packed with nutrients but where did these nutrients come from? I don't know! I'm not willing to put synthetic ingredients in exchange for nutrients.
I started doing research for ways to add more protein to my smoothies and one option is quinoa. I'm pretty picky about what I like and didn't want to make something bland and boring so I thought of adding Horchata to my Quinoa smoothie. Horchata is a Latin American drink mixed with milk which is super delicious and one of my all time faves. It's made with morro seeds which are high in protein, cocoa, rice, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, peanuts vanilla and milk. There are also other varieties made with almonds. Unfortunately Horchata does not have enough protein to consider it a meal and I wanted to make a smoothie for my breakfast.
I came up with this Banana, Quinoa, Cocoa and Horchata smoothie.
Ingredient for 2 servings:
1 large banana
4 tbsp Horchata mix
2 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup cooked (and cold) quinoa
1 vanilla bean
3 cups of milk
Add everything to the blender. Blend the crap out of it and serve. I also garnished it with toasted sliced almonds and shaved dark chocolate.
There are about 12-15 grams of protein per serving and if you make this with Greek yogurt and water instead of milk you can increase the protein content. Bonus! Or you can make it with almond milk or soy milk. Whatever tickles your pickle.
This turned out so good and I will definitely be making it again. If you try it out let me know what you think and pop me a comment below.

On Friday I picked up a couple of neon nail polish colors at two for $8 from Urban Outfitters that I couldn't wait to try out. Such a great deal for awesome shades.
I tried doing the water marble effect a while ago back but it was unsuccessful. I tried it again last night and I think I have it figured out. It was perfect to do the water marble design with more pattern since I always like to have different nails. What do you guys think?

I'm participating in a massive nail polish Giveaway being hosted by NailPolishCanada.com and sponsored by Cirque Colors, NCLA & Picture Polish. The winner could take home up to 200 different shades.
I nominated Sanguine by Cirque to add to the pot.
