How To Roast Chickpeas

I posted this picture on instagram like 2 weeks ago and have been planning to do a recipe post for a while but just never got around to it.  It’s actually quite an easy process, you just need to experiment with the spices.  The first pictures of the ones I made and the second is the recipe!

My chickpeas turned out out crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

C’mon Let Me Ride Your Bicycle

I know that song is inappropriate but whenever I think of bicycles, I think of that song.  It’s catchy and poppy and it has Eminem in it!  Now to the actual post, what do you wear on bike?  Actually, better yet, what do you wear around a bicycle?  When thinking of ideas for the most recent IFB project, I came up with three outfits from the inspiration photos listed below.

Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge: Final Review

SG in Bikini 3 edit

Yesterday was the final day of Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge and I have to say that I was not very good with it.  I didn’t follow all of the rules every day and know that if I did, I would have had better results.  But with this behind me, I plan on working hard and just trying to eat healthy.  As many of you know I promised a prize($15 itunes gift card for your workout playlist) to those who participated.  To win that prize, you must be following my blog, instagram, and twitter.  And you must comment on this post answering the questions: How did this challenge help you become healthier/fitter?  And what were your results?  At least 15 people must participate and add your twitter and instagram name in your response.  Good luck!

4 Looks I’m Lusting

I was just looking through my posts and found that I haven’t done a fashion post in about 3 months!  My immediate thought was this has got to change.  I was looking through fashion blogs(because that’s what I do in my free time, don’t judge) and found this awesome blog called stylecaffeinated and fell in love with her “4 looks I’m lusting” series and wanted to do something similar.  So without further ado, here are the 4 looks I’m lusting and my shopping picks(click on the shopping picks picture for all the products).

Leopard and Lace

 The tie front leopard print shirt, lace white maxi skirt(with the slip cut), aviator sunglasses, black nail polish and black quilted bag with a little midriff gives a sexy laid back, yet classy look. Continue reading

Tae Bo Review

A few weeks ago Tae Bo contacted me and asked me to do a product review.  I excitedly replied yes and they sent me a dvd, a tank top and a pair or shorts.  I saw Tae Bo on TV previously and had wanted to try it but just never could get my hands on a DVD.  I am happy to say I enjoyed the DVD and got a good workout but there was also a variety of cons.  This is my first product review so bare with me and I will do a pros and cons list of all the products I received.

In Which the Protagonist Begins to Workout Again…

Today was my first day of working out in weeks.  I have many excuses for why I have not worked out:

  • School was ending
  • Finals
  • Stress
  • It was hot out
  • I’ll workout tomorrow
  • I’m perfectly happy with being unhealthy
  • and many many more

But the main reason includes the following: Continue reading
