Boyfriend jeans can be a drag when you’ve got hips and a butt, (aka curvy). They could easily look like ill-fitting, unflattering mom jeans until you add these few touches, then they might become your favorite pair.…
Good chili feels like a warm long hug. I like to load mine with vegetables and big chunks of ground beef (or turkey). This time, I added more celery for that intense aroma and flavor. This one is perfect for a quiet Saturday night-in with a good movie.
Serves 6 to 8
2 cups fresh celery 1 cup green onion leaves 1 cup carrots 1 medium onion 1 cup tomato sauce 15 ounces canned chilli or beans (optional) Seasoning: Paprika, garlic, turmeric, blackpepper, salt, parsley

- Heat Canola oil in a saucepan, about 4 to 5 table spoons should do.
- Chop up all your vegetables and add them to the heated oil.
- You’ll know it’s time to add the ground meat when the onions start to soften.
- Add the seasoning soon after so the flavor can cook into the meat. A teaspoon or half is what I used with each seasoning although, I wouldn’t want to dictate how much you should flavor your food.
- When the meat starts to brown, add the tomato sauce and chili (or beans) and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
- It goes well over pasta and rice and if you’re a lazy wimp like myself…bread (don’t judge).
My first experience with smudging was with Bukhoor from Arabia, mostly used by Muslims during dua (prayer). As a kid, I asked my dad about the significance of burning the strongly scented bricks. He gave me one, told me to pray to Allah for anything I wanted then place the brick in the burner. He said the scent would attract the good angels, who would take my message direct to Allah (those angels must have rolled their eyes when they heard me praying for blue eyed blonde barbies…good times).…
I had a friend who constantly said to me, “But Buba, you love yourself.” They’d give me that comment when I did little things that enhanced my life—like going to the spa or wearing eyelashes on a random Tuesday….
Somewhere in-between killing it at work, staying hydrated, working out and trying to keep up with new wellness routines, stress can creep up from the endless pressure we’re dealing with. This can take a toll on our immune systems and it’s that time of year when your immunity needs to be on its A-game with all these allergens flying around (literally). I’m staying a step ahead by alternating turmeric and ginger shots every morning to boost my body’s defense.…
I feel the same way about taking makeup off, the way Marie Kondo feels about mess. While taking makeup off at 3am when you’re dead-ass tired is impossible for many, I don’t mind staying up for a few more minutes if it means waking up breakout free. But for you, my friends, who pass out on your beds, with your foundation and mascara intact, only to wake-up looking like a panda, here’s what you should do.…
That white nail polish trend is spreading like crazy. If you’ve tried it and it felt off, you’re not alone. I for one, like a light, clean finish on my fingers. So if you’ve been wondering what shades can work for you if white just didn’t do it, here are a few of my favs….Read More »

To be honest, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. All I knew was ACV is good for the body and celebrities love it. So, I decided to give it a try over the course of one week, taking a shot of Bragg organic ACV mixed with a little water every morning, and waiting 40 minutes before eating my first meal.…
