Make-up Meets Technology

Having trouble matching foundation to your skin color?  Then this is a perfect match for you.  Your color changes with each season, so this company does the work for you! So easy to do right on your phone!  Yes, on your phone with their app!  As you can see below, I did it.

 

I got my custom match and the bottle even came with my name on it!  Check out the picture.  It was a perfect match!

 

 

 

How does this all work?

Our hyper-intelligent technology takes five skin scans, analyzes your skin tone, and then blends a perfectly matched all-in-one foundation just for you. Each bottle is personalized with your name and the date that it was made. – MatchCo.

And now, this company has also partnered with Bare Minerals to make their products that much better (see the email ad I received below).

Bacon Avocado Egg Bomb…is the Bomb

Talk about a delicious and mostly healthy breakfast!  The Bacon Avocado Egg Bomb is something you have to try at least once –  and then I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last time you make it.

Ingredients are simple; 1  egg, 1 avocado and 2 slices of bacon*

*You can substitute turkey bacon, but you will need 3 – 4 pieces for one egg bomb and I should warn you that it is a little trickier to wrap and cook.

Directions:  (youtube video attached at the end of this post)

  • Boil 1 egg approximately 6 minutes (depending on your egg preference.)  This will leave it slightly runny.  Immerse in a bowl of ice water for approximately 1-2 minutes.

 

 

  • Slice the avocado in half.  Remove the skin and the pit.  If the pit wasn’t exceptionally big, you may need to spoon out a little more avocado to fit the egg.

 

  • Place the chilled egg inside the avocado and press the two halves of the avocado back together.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Wrap the two slices of bacon around the avocado (see video at the end of this post) and pan sear until the bacon is cooked.  Be attentive and turn frequently so the bacon cooks evenly.

 

 

 

 

  • Once the bacon is cooked to your preference, remove from pan, slice in half, and enjoy!

 

 

 

This gives you protein, your healthy fat of the avocado, and well I’m not going to sugarcoat this – it’s bacon so you have your unhealthy fat too.  You could totally use turkey bacon if you want to keep it healthy – yawn!   But as I mentioned, it’s a little tricky to wrap the avocado and keep it on while cooking. The flavor was great though, it might just not look as pretty as the real deal.

 

My husband and I split this, so really we only had 1/2 of an avocado, 1 slice of bacon and 1/2 of an egg.  I recommend boiling 1 – 2 extra eggs if you prefer a more protein-friendly breakfast.  Half of this Bacon Avocado Egg Bomb will go a long way for the morning.

Three Series to Binge-Watch this Summer

So, we just finished the show The White Queen and are now following up with The White Princess.  If you really wanted to watch this time period in an orderly fashion you would start with The White Queen, then watch the White Princess, and then end with The Tudors.

 

I found all of the series to be entertaining and educational.  You have to be a little on your game to follow who is King and Queen and how they got there, but it’s worth it to keep up!  The Tudors is one of my all time favorites series.

All of the series listed can get a little racy and even a little gory,  but that’s just true to fashion.  You’ll find these shows on Amazon, Starz, and Netflix.   Enjoy these this summer and let us know your thoughts on each.

Ringing in Summer

Look what I just got for my birthday!  I’ve been looking for a ring for a while, but have been having a hard time finding the perfect one.  Did I mention I have little fingers?  So, trying to find a bigger ring that looks right on my hands is difficult, to say the least.  This set of stackable rings by Lisa Leonard Designs turned out to be perfect for my hands and carries a special meaning, since its engraved with the names of each of my children too.
