Pretzel toasted coconut chicken!?

ImageImageImage

Huh? Yeah, that is right a chicken pretzel. I totally just came up with this is my head when I was thinking about how bad I wanted some pretzels. Imagine if you used mashed up pretzels as a bread crumb instead regular bread crumbs? It would be like a pretzel chicken. And if you cut up the chicken into little bite size pieces, you could call is “Pop pretzel chicken” Anyways, I know it sounds crazy. I am sure someone has tried this before but I am going to try it out and if you do let me know what you think!

So what you would need to do is take a big bag of pretzels and mash them up but still leave a few good chunks! (Don’t make it dusty, you still want the crunch) And then for a little sweet to the chicken and a layer of shredded sweet coconut. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering! I really think this would be amazing! It would be the perfect sweet/salty chicken mix but little bite size snacks!

THEN for the dip you can make a tzatziki sauce with cucumber and dill!  Am I the only one that thinks this sounds amazing? I can’t wait to try this!

Just wash the raspberries and get two big bags of white chocolate/dark chocolate or regular milk and place the chips right into the raspberries and even get blackberries and do the same thing. It is a delicious combo and great for parties! Just put them in pretty dishes to be served.

Your body shape + your wedding dress

Hi beauties, so when finding your wedding dress you want to find the perfect fit for your day. Understanding your body type and body shape is important when finding a wedding dress. I realized myself that I have always wanted to wear a big princess ball gown…but I quickly found out that I am way too short to wear that big of a gown and I get buried into it! But that didn’t stop my dream of the perfect dress and I ended up finding the perfect dress! and so I want to give props for realsimple.com they have made a really awesome post about finding the best wedding dress. Photos/info is from them.

My dress had a sweetheart neckline with crystals and flowed out gorgeously, here’s a peek!

If You’re Pear-Shaped

Look for: A skirt that gradually flares out in an A formation from the natural waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the midsection and floating away from the hips and thighs. (Sturdier fabrics, such as duchesse satin and taffeta, are especially effective, since they won’t cling.) A spaghetti-strap bodice or a V neckline will also showcase a more slender upper body.

Image

If You’re Busty

Look for: A dress with a scooped neckline. It will open up your face and display your décolletage without showing too much cleavage. If you love the look of strapless gowns, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across (which will make your bust appear even larger and more shelflike).

Image

If You’re Plus-Sized

Look for: An Empire dress with a skirt that begins just under the bust and flows into a gradual floor-length A-line. Make sure the Empire seam does not start on the chest and that there is no pleating of the fabric, which is reminiscent of maternity wear. The dress should play up your shape; if it’s too loose, it will add pounds.

Image

If You’re Apple-Shaped

Look for: A dress that cinches in at the smallest point on the waistline, then flares out into a gradual A shape. Opt for a bodice with a lot of texture to it―think ruche or lace detailing―that will camouflage and fit snugly, creating a corsetlike effect. The most slenderizing neckline for you is one with a deep V, which will draw eyes toward the vertical, not the horizontal.

Image

If You’re Tall

Look for: A simple silhouette. The strategy is to emphasize your natural shape, so every aspect of the dress―the lower waistline, a floor-sweeping hem―needs to reflect your longer proportions. If you’re wearing long sleeves, they should go past the wrist. You don’t want to look as if you’ve borrowed a gown from someone shorter than you.

Old remedy to take stains of your teeth!

An old trick that people use to do is called Oil pull or Oil pulling! It’s when you take some kind of oil either sesame oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. You take at least 2 tablespoon in your mouth and wish and wash it around in your mouth for about 5-10 minutes. And it’s worth taking the few extra minutes to use this as a mouth wash. By doing this it will naturally take off the stains on your teeth! You will noticed a difference in at least 3 days. I learned about this really cool trick from my favorite healthy guy Daniel Vitalis.

This is a great exfoliate for your face and coffee has antioxidants in it and the milk is soothing to the skin. Everybody loves a good calming mask to put on after a hard days work! Give this puppy a try.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 3 tablespoons of used finely ground coffee
  • A small glass of milk

WHAT TO DO

  1. Add the used finely ground coffee into a bowl.
  2. Stir in the milk until well blended and it will be a thick texture.
  3. Try not to make the paste too diluted or it’ll be runny and it’s gonna be messy.
  4. If the mixture becomes too runny, simply add a little more coffee into it.
  5. Apply the paste onto your face and smooth it out all over your face. Avoid eyes and lips.
  6. Slowly massage the mixture to your skin.
  7. Then relax for 20 minutes.
  8. While washing off the mask, slowly massage the paste to your skin. It acts further as an exfoliator. Don’t massage too hard if you have sensitive skin.
  9. Pat your face dry.
  10. Apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp to seal in the moisture.

(Remember not to scrub your skin too hard with the coffee grounds though.)
