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
So our performances for Halloween kick off this week so hair preparation...check! Now nails....check! My name stylist CeCe is everything! She has been doing my nails for almost 4 years and always gets it right! I go in with the craziest ideas too and she makes it come to life! The ombré she did consist of electric blue, teal and a green transparent glitter! Just about ready for my costume! Sooo excited!!!

With a full schedule its so difficult to be as artsy as Id like (beyond the fact that I cant draw or carve very well LOL) but I do have such a love to be festive for Holidays! So this year Im playing with a few ideas for Non-Traditional Pumpkin carving and/or non-carving! Here is my Top 5!
1. Lace Covered
2. Floral Inspired Centerpieces
4. Party Buckets for beverages
5. Candle Holders
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)
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!
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!

Its sounds so cliche when someone tells you that you can do anything you put your mind to! Well I think we should just be crazy enough to believe it! xoMB
