My First DailyLook Purchase




DailyLook did a great job advertising itself on YouTube through the YouTube makeup and fashion folks. 
DailyLook is an online store, all about fashion.
I find lots of fun just browsing this website, because it gives me ideas.
Ideas on how can I wear and pair different pieces of clothes, pieces that I bought and I didn't know how to style. 
Outfits ideas, and how you can put a complete outfit together, starting from your hair the whole way down to your toes.
They have models pics with outfits ideas, but the cool thing is they feature pics of regular people who "hashtagged" their pics on instgram or twitter (#dailylook), people who purchased items from their website which gives me more inspiration on how I can pair clothes, accessories and such.

I was a bit reluctant buying something from an online store since I don't have the best experience with online stores, but I decided to go on and purchase something.
Two weeks ago I got my first dailylook order and I loved what I got.
Good packaging, thankfully they didn't try to squeeze my stuff in a small envelope or something.
I was so happy with my stuff and I decided to purchase more. So my second order should arrive tomorrow.
Love the idea of the website, love the prices and I love the creativity.
Here are some pics of my first order.










Crystal Owl Ring, Gold (Style # 72707) $12.99





Quilted Lady Bag Mauve (Style # 57992) $44.99

Fried Bananas That Are Not So Bad for You



Here is the recipe

Slice two bananas


Spray generously the pan that you will "fry" the bananas in with Pam (baking)



Medium heat, start putting the banana slices.
Keep close eye on it since it can burn quickly.
Keep checking and when the side facing the pan turns golden brown, then it is ready to be flipped over the other side to get that golden brown color.





While the bananas are doing it's thing, combine a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of water in a bowl.


When you achieve the golden brown color on both sides of the banana slices with a spoon start putting the syrup of the bananas, then remove the pan from the heat.

Transfer the banana slices to a plate then enjoy the taste.
I like to let it cool off a little since it will be very hot right out of the pan.
I also sometimes sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on the bananas.





Bon Appétit

Killer Cookie Recipe: Peanut Butter, Nutella Chocolate Chunks Cookies





If you are peanut butter, chocolate and Nutella lover than this is perfect for you.
It is not the quickest recipe but it is definitely one of the best
Thanks for Pinterest, it made my life better!




Ingredients

1 egg
3/4 cup of Nutella 
1/4 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract 
1/2 of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
pinch of salt 
4 ounces (about 110 grams) of semi sweet chocolate (chopped)

Directions
Combine egg, Nutella, peanut butter, brown sugar and vanilla in a bowl, beat them with a mixer until it gets the creamy texture.
Add the rest of the ingredients and keep mixing.
Incorporate the chopped chocolate using a spatula.
Start shaping the dough into golf ball size (or a bit bigger), squeeze each mound to make sure it is compact so that it does not fall apart.
Cover the dough and refrigerate for about 3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 then bake the cookies for 9 minutes.
When you take the cookies out they will not be completely firm but they will as they cool down on the cooling rack.
Experience the best chewy gooey cookies on earth.

Bongiorno, Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl, 005 Nude Review





It is the lightest shade of salmon color. Basically used on the waterline or/and the inner corner of the eyes.
It immediately brightens up the eyes and make them appear bigger and wider.
It is very soft and it glide easily.
Since it is made for the waterline (which is watery in nature), I'd say that it stays without fading for a few hours but I won't say that it is completely waterproof.
All in all I recommend this product but don't expect that it will last the whole day.

Dzien dobry! Inglot Breathable Nail Polish





Got myself this one a few days ago, can't wait to try it



Unfortunately I do not have any where near by so I had to purchase it online.
I paid $22 which is kind of expensive.
$14 for the nail polish, $8 for shipping.


This color's number is 612
Inglot O2M Breathable
Contains: no Toluene, no Formaldehyde, no DBP, no Camphor 
It is made in Poland, hence the Dzien Dorby! 

It claims that it allows moisture and oxygen to the nail bed, which makes it better than regular nail varnish which blocks air and moisture causing yellowing of the finger/toe nail.
We shall see.
