Nail Polish + Egusi Soup

I am in this rather interesting nail polish phase. Blame Destiny! I do not consider myself a fashionista, but I can be stylish sometimes. These days I visit Marshalls with high expectations of finding steals and deals on polishes. I recently discovered Essie and boy do I love the colors!

 This weekend I made Egusi soup with spinach and bitter-leaf. Have you tried that combination? I enjoyed it, and will continue making my Egusi that way. The only problem with this batch was that I mistakenly used too much oil. Next time I will use less oil.   Just in case you are wondering, I do not use palm-oil. The palm-oil here tastes very funny and foreign to me. I use lots of red bell peppers for color and canola or peanut or vegetable oil.

I just completed “Gone for Good” by Harlan Coben.


Next in line is the shades of gray trilogy, and “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. What are you reading?

Happy Labor Day + Italian Leather Bags + What i have been up to = Picture Overload!!

Happy September and Happy Labor day in advance!!! I have missed you, and thank you for visiting. So i have been up to so much. First off was our first year wedding anniversary which i will blog about in detail later. Hubby and i attended the artscape festival in Baltimore couple weeks ago, and saw many interesting things. Below are some pictures.

 Monster story acted on stage. So entertaining!
 Man walking and jumping on glass.
 I think it was $1 for two jumps
 This sculpture could open and close its eyes. The eyes where made of mirrors so you could see your reflection. Creepy!
So many people watching a live performance.

 All kinds of jamajanticks called "art"
 Chair and container for tips for performers

My girl Havilah just started her business, she has shared some pictures of her goods.  Call her to place an order directly, or visit her Ebay store.
