Halloween Final: Nyterie from Avatar!

Its finally here and all the preparation led to a super fun night!  My costume this year was Nyterie, Zoe Saldana's character from Avatar! The Jumpsuit I ordered from Partycity.com which came with the feathers, arm case and jewels.  I added the belt as the body suit wasnt cut for my tiny waist.  I hand painted and did my makeup myself (tutorial to come later).  You can see the other pictures I added to my gallery here! xoMB

Loving the Dark Lip Trend!

I have settled in nicely to the dark lip trend for the fall season and who woulda new that the brand that has my fave shade would be Wet n Wild! Its Mega Last Cherry Bomb! I wore it last night for the DJ Lobo event so of course I was salsa dancing and drinking bottle after bottle of ....water :) No seriously it was water and my lips lasted all night! Cant beat it! Def at $1.99 its worth trying and affordable to throw out if you dont love it! But I have a feeling you will! xoMB


Non-Traditional Pumpkin Ideas!

2. Floral Inspired Centerpieces

4. Party Buckets for beverages

My Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe!

With the weather changing it has put me in the mood to start whipping up soups, gumbos, and comfort food in general.  I ofcourse, post the pics of my creations on Instagram but will start posting my full recipes here!  Try them out and feel free to tell me what you think! Also feel free leave your creative twist and suggestions in the comments! xoMB

What you'll need:
(Based on Serving for 4)
1/2lb Farfalle Pasta
1 Large Box Natural Low sodium Chicken Broth
1 Medium Bag mixed veggies frozen (carrots, peas, corn etc)
1-1.5lbs of Chicken (I use dark meat)
Sea Salt
Minced Garlic
Garlic Powder
3 Tablespoons Recaito (Goya)
2 Whole Fresh Limes (Room temperature)
Boil Chicken in large pot with 3 parts water and 1 part Chicken Broth.   Boil down until chicken is thoroughly cooked add remaining chicken broth and Farfalle Pasta.  If using bone in chicken take out of pot and seperate meat from bone disgaurd bones if you prefer (I put them back in the pot to simmer in soup).  Cook pasta for 5 minutes add in veggies, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 3 tablespoons recaito, dash of pepper, dash of salt, and dash of garlic powder.  Simmer soup for 20-30 minues over medium heat.  Serve with half a lime!  Enjoy! 

Today's Lunch!

I woke up this am and headed straight for the deli to get fresh prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato and baguette bread! This was the best lunch ever! If you've never tried it you must! Don't forget a dash of salt and pepper on top! And low fat mayo or honey mustard is a great alternative!

Preparing for Halloween!

Halloween is one of my fave holidays! The makeup, costumes, and everything in between! I'm kicking off my preparations for Halloween this year with ditching the red hair for dark and stay tuned for what else! xoMB
