HOW TO: broccoli cheddar soup& Chanel Glasses

Today I was thinking...
What is something I have NEVER posted to my blog before?
& it came to me..
Although I do not wear glasses in my photos,
I wear my glasses everyday!
They are a bit more convenient for me at the moment~

They are Chanel glasses! They are a silver/gun metal color!
I got this color because they were a little less flashy then the
silver& black version of these glasses ^.^

I ventured out into the snow for all these pictures :3
There were light snowflakes drifting around~~
You can see some in my hair ~!

Ha ha... I look like a *complete* nerd in glasses 8D

Snow always looks so beautiful in pictures..
Snow is something that *many* people tell me
they are jealous I can see!!
But let me tell you, pictures and real life experience
are nothing a like!!
I find snow to be completely horrible!!
It's freezing, sends chills to your bones,
gets your clothes damp and icy, the cold winter breeze
sends a pain through your eyes that makes you believe
they are going to fall out of your sockets...

HOW TO make broccoli cheddar soup!!

I hear many people say constantly, "I can't cook!"
Honestly, I think everyone can do this~~
It's just a matter of reading directions and following them precisely~~
Let's cook OK guys!! You can do it ^.^

  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups cream
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • head of broccoli
  • 1 cup of carrot (i forgot to show it in the picture!)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (more or less to your taste)
  • 8 oz grated sharp cheddar

Before you start cooking you must prepare all your veggies!

-Cut the carrots julienne style. This means thin strips~
( plz google image if not sure)
-cut the broccoli as you would for stir fry
-cut the onions as pictured below~

-First saute the onion in the tbs of butter, set it aside in a bowl for later

-Make what is called a "roux" by adding the melted butter and
flour with a wisk on medium for 3-5 mins. (i didn't show a picture of this!)

-Next add your cream, chicken stock, broccoli, carrots, and onions!!
It should look like the picture above~~

-Cover and cook on low for about 20 mins until the veggies are cooked ^.^

-In the next step use a hand blender to puree the soup into a thick mixture!
You can make it chunky or smooth depending on how you like it~
-If you do not have a hand blender pour your soup into a regular blender and puree!

-Last step is to add the cheese!

-Stir it in with the soup until completely melted and blended!

-Add nutmeg to your taste!! This gives the soup the final touch~~

Voila~~~ We are done !!
Time to go enjoy your soup ^.^

Please Enjoy& Be Well!!
With love, Nana*♥


REVIEW: Korres Lip Butter

I am cryinggg!!
Why you ask??
BECAUSE!! I have to go back to school on the 20th T___T...
I have made a promise to myself to focus 100% on school this semester!
Although I had good academic achievements such as making it into the
Honors Program& making the "Deans List" in my college, I want to do
even better so I can make it into my program!
I never did well in school. I almost failed out of high school.
I was always getting into trouble at school or with the law... So I am very
happy for this change !! FIGHTING !!

REVIEW: Korres Lip Butter - Jasmine

"Jasmine Lip Butter: A buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish. The combination of Shea butter and Rice wax offers deep hydration and softness. Ideal for chapped lips."

So... is it true?
yes! i absolutely love this product!!
i have problems in the winter with dry skin & chapped lips~
this helps so so much~

-it doesn't feel sticky, thick, or greasy!
-it actually moisturizes your lips instead of sitting on top
- really helps with chapped lips
-the product smells great
-slightly changes the color in my lips to a neutral (& my lips are SUPER pigmented)

I will give this:

5/5 hearts



HAPPY 2010 everyone!!

Of course, this post is late~
I haven't had time to sit down and
write in my blog for quite awhile now!
First it was college finals, then the holidays!
My life has been filled with 100% drama lately.
Don't worry, I'll spare you the details... BUT..
It has made me realize I need a new change!

New Years Resolutions

(You know we all have them!)

1.) You are who you hang out with: I must remember
this at all times. Either I become friends with
people that have interests like me and values like me
or I fly as MR. SOLO DOLO!!
I need to learn to be happy with this.
I don't need people pulling me away from my goals!!

2.) Manage my stress. I have mountains of stress piled
onto my already stressful life! I need to learn to be less
angry with this because it's something I can not change.

3.) This sounds stupid but, REMEMBER THINGS!
I constantly forget things. Forget where I put my cell phone,
forget what I was going to do, forget forget forget!

4.) BLOG MORE!! duh... Need to stop being
a lazy peice of shiet in this aspect of my life!!
LOL! I love this blogging community
♥ ♥ ♥

I hope everyone is having a
wonderful fresh start!

Look to the future for
new posts!!

♥ you guys!
