I Love Juicy //A Lush Shampoo Review

Hey everyone!

I bought something. Maybe it’s a gimmick, maybe it will work, maybe I’m crazy who knows! I bought a shampoo specialized for oily hair at Lush last Monday! I gave it a week and thought I would share it with you guys!

Like always I have an in-depth review on YouTube if you want to see my face talk for like way too long. I would love to see all of you lovely friends over there. So please check it out.

Now on to the review. I kinda decided like 30 seconded before using the product that I would actually review it, #Content. I had high hopes for this product because well, any other shampoo I have ever used had been shit. I don’t mean it in a bad way. I just have oily hair and 99% of shampoo is catered towards people with dry hair. So all those hydrating shampoos are not for me. My hair gets oily that same day when I use those shampoos.

So if it says it’s for people with oily hair, I thought to myself, well how badly can they screw this up? Spoiler: there is no screw-up, it works amazingly!

My first impression was it’s expensive! I don’t know who has 37$ Canadian to spend on shampoo but this girl can’t! I prefer you know the 3$ range. If I can get it cheaper than that then I am a very happy girl. I just find it super hard to justify spending that much money on a small bottle of shampoo. It would only make sense if it would last me over a year and I doubt that will happen. I give it an optimistic few months.

Now, the first thing that struck me while actually using the product was that you don’t need a lot. One squirt and you’ve got enough to cover your head. This is taken into account that I have thin hair. It foams up like a normal shampoo and smells very strong. I bought I Love Juicy which is more of a tropical scent. If that’s not your thing then you will hate this.

Other than that, after a few days of using the shampoo, I noticed a huge change in my hair. Instead of being oily the next day my hair is healthy and shiny. That was very interesting to see. I am very impressed with what this shampoo has been able to do in the short time that I have been using it.

So all in all, I think I kind of love this shampoo haha! The only problem is that it is so expensive. It makes it hard for me to justify buying this product again for the price. But if you are interested in this products you can get it HERE.

Would you guys buy a specialized hair care product for that price? Am I being too picky or is the price insane? Would you or have you ever tried this product? I would love to know what you guys think!

Salmon Bow Ties / Recipe – Day #27

Hey everyone!

So I’ve been really into cooking as of late. I love cooking and coming up with recipes. I am even thinking of making a cookbook at some point. Today, I decided to share my fav easy pasta meal.

My Salmon Bow Tie recipe is super easy. I don’t make a lot of things from scratch. (Sorry) One day I’ll attempt making alfredo sauce homemade but today is not that day. All you need for this recipe is bow tie pasta, alfredo sauce, pink salmon and asparagus.

I always start off with boiling water for the pasta and cooking my salmon. I take frozen salmon and put it on a pan with oil. I leave the salmon be for 5 minutes on high. Then I flip it and turn down the stove top to medium for another 5 minutes. Once the water is boiling I pour in the pasta.

There are two ways to cook asparagus you can boil them or you can cook them in the oven. I prefer the oven route. I cook them at 400 for about 12 to 15 minutes. I stick them on a pan with tin foil and season them. I give them a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Since they are going to go into the pasta there is no need to super season them. It’s really to taste.

I heat up the Alfredo sauce in its own pot while I drain the pasta and take the asparagus out of the oven. The sauce heats up pretty quickly. I then mix everything together in the pasta pot.

It’s a pretty straightforward recipe and super easy for a weeknight. I like things that cook quickly and taste great. If you’re looking for just a simple recipe this is for you. I would love to know if you guys try this recipe.

National French Fry Month – Day #16

Hey everyone!

July is National French Fry Month. So, I love anything that can be turned into a French Fry. So, of course, that is why I have my own favourite recipe. Besides the fact that I love to cook, I feel like it’s important to figure out how to make your own version of the unhealthy food. How do you make junk food healthy?

I always start with a potato. When making this blog post I had both russet potatoes (which I use the most often) and sweet potatoes. I make sure they are rinsed and take off any of the gross stuff I don’t want to be eating.

I think this part is optional and up to you on how you cute the potatoes. I like to make chips but if you’re really talented and have the time you can make them fry shape. I just find chips go way easier. You just cut the potato vertically.

Once all the potatoes are cut I put them on an aluminum foil covered pan. I use aluminum foil because it’s easier to clean up. I am straight up the laziest person and if it means there’s less for me to clean, I do it.

I drizzle a bit of olive oil over the potatoes chips so that the seasoning will stick. Today I decided to add onion powder and red pepper flakes. Red pepper flakes are spicy so if you’re not in the mood for spice you can always just use your own seasonings.

I stick these bad boys in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. I check up on them at 20 to see how they’re looking and I either take them out or put them in longer depending on how they look. I look for them to be crispy.

I let them sit for about 5 minutes then I serve. I typically eat them with vegan sour cream and chives just for extra flavour.

I hope you guys have a great national french fry month. Do you guys have your own french fry recipe or do you just buy them premade? If you try out this recipe make sure to tell me about it!

My Favourite Go-To Vegan Lunch

Hey everyone!
I am no cook but I would love to share with you guys the easiest lunch that I adore. I enjoy cooking but I never seem to have the time. I never get to further my skills. That may be because I wake up 20 minutes before I have to leave for school or it’s pure laziness. So this is my quick lunch that I do at night so it’s ready when I rush out the door.

I start with my veggies of choice. Today I am using red potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini, and I also grabbed an apple. I love potatoes and find they keep me full the longest when I’m at school. I actually am not a huge fan of carrots unless they are warmed up. I also decided to add an apple so sweeten my meal a bit.

I cut up everything till they are the way I want them. I like big chunks but it’s not necessary. You can cut them however you want. I throw them on some parchment paper on a pan. I drizzle some vegetable oil and then add my seasoning. I like my veggies a bit spicy so I add some cayenne pepper.

I threw them all in there for 30 minutes at 350. You can always change the amount of time to your liking. This recipe is not exact and doesn’t follow a strict set of rules. If that isn’t your cup of tea, my cooking is not for you, haha. I always am just throwing things together and hoping for the best.

Once they’re done I take them out and let them sit for a bit. After they’ve cooled off I put my lunch together in a Tupperware container so I could take it to school the next day. I started with a bottom layer of chilli, then potatoes and zucchini, followed by the carrots and apples.

This is one of the easiest lunches to make. It doesn’t take too long especially when you’re just making one portion. I made two in this video, by the way, you for sure don’t have to make this much. It’s for sure a starchy and calorie dense meal but it’s super filling and very comforting. I love this on a cold day at school when I have a lot of school work that I need to get done.

Make sure to check out my video if you want to see more of this recipe. Send me a message if you’ve tried it. I would love to see you guys recreations.
