Kylie Kwong’s Vietnamese-Style Chicken Soup with Pickled Shallots. This was so warming. I loved picking the different herbs and changing the flavour of the soup as I went along. I found a variation of this recipe on the net that included pickled carrots too. Definitely going to try that next time.
I had the nicest comments from the girls in my gym class recently when they asked me how old I was turning on my birthday. They had all thought I was much younger. I’ve been using SKII Facial Treatment Essence, Facial Treatment Cleanser and the Advanced Eye Treatment Film for the last 10 years. And after that experience, why stop now?
Research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, found the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive way. “What’s exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way,” said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers. And here I thought they just looked pretty.
Lucas Hugh Krypton Leggings. Something different to wear to the gym when you’re over black. I really like them, a bit of colour’s nice in winter when it’s grey and raining outside.
It’s raining pretty hard today so, I’m going to do a Pump / CXWORX class combo instead of a run at lunchtime. But, while I’m dreaming of running, this pic was taken on one I did earlier in the week. A new filter on my camera turned the sky and water psychedelic. It’s out there but, I like it.
I love the pattern on these L’urv Stone Leopard Shorts. Really nice to wear with my Lucas Hugh Base Layer when the weather’s a bit in-between.
I don’t know if I should admit this but, sometimes the only thing that motivates me to exercise is having something nice to wear while I’m doing it. I got this Lucas Hugh Highline Base Layer in the mail about a month ago and I absolutely love wearing it. It’s lightly fleecy on the inside and has perforated panels for ventilation on the sides, front and back so you stay warm when you’re running but never wet. Perfect for a winter jog.
This one’s for indoors as it’s so miserable out.
