My Fav Spices and Color Changing Nail Polish

So lately I have noticed that no matter what I'm cooking I'm adding these 2 ingredients. 1) Bay leaves 2) Basil & Garlic Seasoning.  I have been raving about Basil garlic to anyone who would listen to me for the last two years! (maybe longer...) At one point I kept some in my purse...yes I would shamelessly add this to my breakfast sandwich from Jo Jo's... I no longer keep a bottle on my but do add some to everything... sweet potatoes, eggs, all types of meat, you can even add it to rice. As for the bay leaves my mom has been adding them to baked chicken with onions and I love the flavor. When I tried to make the same dish it didn't come out the same that's when she told me about the bay leaves. Similarly now I add them to everything too! Although I recommend for you to remove them before eating your meal since it is a leaf after all and no one wants to eat a leaf with their meal...unless it's salad.

OK, next item on the agenda is color changing gel nail polish. My friend Veronica told me about this and I was super excited. It is like mood nail polish.  When your fingers are hot the polish is one color, when they are cold it turns another. Pretty impressive. The best thing that since it is gel polish the polish will stay on for at least 2 weeks. The photo on the left is when my fingers are hot, baby blue nail polish. (She did a design on one finger from each hand...) The picture on the right is when my fingers are freezing, gray nail polish. Pretty cool huh! I think I will try another of the color changing polish next time I go back. My mom got her nails polished too but wasn't as adventurous as I was. She just got a french manicure.  :)


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the nails!! That is fantastic! :D

  2. I must say you have me hooked on the garlic basil...but i didnt know about the Bay leaves...I must try
