I recently received this Selfie Ring Light for Phone Camera Photography Video, BatteryPowered Clip White and let me tell you….this little light does shine.  And it shines bright!

Many of y’all may know that I film some of my YouTube videos in my car and this ring light is a great and convenient accessory to have!  It clips right onto your phone and it’s rechargeable.  Tucks away nicely in your purse or bag so you can take it on the go!  I definitely recommend this light to anyone who wants to step up their selfie game or wants to improve the lighting for their videos.

Have you ever tried one?

 

Schwarzkopf GLISS Hair Repair

IMG_4114

I tried both the Schwarzkopf GLISS Hair Repair Ultimate Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.  The sample that I received was a generous portion so I was able to wash and condition my hair several times to really be able to test it out.

The shampoo was great.  It did not leave my hair feeling dry or anything.  It lathers up well and rinses easily.  The conditioner felt great too.  I felt like my hair was soft and manageable after I rinsed it.

Both products were great and I just started looking into trying the Schwarzkopf GLISS Kur Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Hair Mask.  It would be great to do a deep treatment on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Have you ever tried any of these?

Sharing another super easy recipe‼️

I made sausage and potatoes for dinner 🍽 and it was yummy!! It’s another quick & easy recipe that you can throw together last minute.

You need:
✅ Polska Keilbasa
✅ Southern-style hash brown potatoes
✅ Onion soup mix
✅ Oil
✅ Optional: onion, bell pepper

▶️ I toss the potatoes in a little bit of oil and sprinkle the onion soup mix and mix well. I cook the potatoes in the oven at 425 for about 30 minutes, turning every 15 minutes.
▶️ While the potatoes are cooking, I slice the sausage up and pan fry it. I add the potatoes once they are done.
▶️ Now if I’m feeling sassy I will add onion and bell pepper to the sausage as I fry it up. Gives it some additional flavor.

I’ve got high hopes

One song that always comes to my mind when the new year rolls around is “High Hopes”.  To me it just reminds me that things are possible.

“Next time your found, with your chin on the ground
There a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he’ll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can’t
Move a rubber tree plant

But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes
He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your gettin’ low
‘Stead of lettin’ go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your back’s to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin’ that dam

‘Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your feelin’ bad
‘stead of feelin’ sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon
They’ll be bursted soon
They’re just bound to go pop
Oops there goes another problem kerplop”

I put my hand up on my hip….

IMG_5762

When I dip, you dip, we dip…..

I always pose for my pics with my hand on my hip.  I guess because I don’t really know what to do with my hands?  haha!  Not really sure but let’s talk about the outfit.

The shirt is by Merona and it’s oxblood red and y’all know that is one of my colors.  The jean capris are by a.n.a. and the shoes are Lower East Side from Payless.  I think I should have worn a different shoe.  I feel like I tried to be too matchy matchy and I also could have added a necklace.

What do y’all think?  Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

Sunday Mornings

I have this knit skirt that I enjoy wearing but it’s always tough to find the right top to go with it.  Sometimes I wear a t-shirt for a more casual look and sometimes I wear a knit top.

IMG_5606

I am not sure if this top will be staying in my capsule wardrobe.  I’ve had it for a while but honestly it does not bring me joy when I wear it.  It goes in the same “I wear it because I have it” category as some other pieces in my closet.

And to be perfectly honest, I need to rethink the skirt.  If it is that difficult to pair with something, is it really working?  What I like most about it is the fact that it is a knit (easy to wear, easy to clean and travels well) and that it’s black (a standard neutral).  But I have to go back to the fact that I struggle with putting a top with it.  What are your thoughts on that?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

The Fremont Troll

One of my favorite websites (and apps) is RoadsideAmerica.com.  I love visiting odd and unusual roadside attractions and the website has tons of them!

I’ve visited the Freemont Troll before but it’s always fun to see.  Have you ever been?  Do you have any pics?  What things do you like to see when you visit a city?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
