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?
