Steam Pot Sunday


This Sunday I made my very first steam pot and surprised my hubby with a beach side picnic! <3 If you're interested keep reading for my recipe and method on how I did this :)

What you need:
2 pounds of shrimp
2 pounds of clams
2 pounds of mussels
  (or your choice of shellfish)
4-5 small potatoes (I used white)
2 ears of corn
1 lemon cut in half
1/2 an onion
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1 can of beer
 old bay seasoning (I used the one that comes in a bag)
1 tsp of pepper
2 tbsp of salt
1tsp of garlic powder
1tsp of chili powder
             add 2 quarts of water to a large pot as well as the beer and bring to a boil.
wash your potatoes and cut the corn in half


once boiling add your corn and potatoes
add chopped onion and garlic

then add your lemon and all dry ingredients and the old bay seasoning. Boil for 15 minutes.


                                                                     add the shellfish

sprinkle with chili powder and cover for 20 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink.


drain....
and serve :)
I hope you guys enjoyed this :) and trust me it's waaaay easier then it sounds!

Inglot Haul


While on my trip to Las Vegas, one of the places I made sure to stop at was Inglot. I bought a 5 pan palette and 5 eye shadows  The colors I picked are just random colors I swatched while in the store. As far as the pigment goes, I really like it! It;s true to colors and vibrant even the nude color. The texture of all these shadows are suPer smooth even though they appear to be glittery. Overall I think  the quality of these eye shadows are excellent and sell for a very reasonable price.
beige shadow is #395 it reminds me of MAC's Nylon eyeshadow, the Orange  is actually a rusty Brown color #464
# 459 My favorite! I love Taupe colors with Purple undertones.
#414 a pretty beatle Green
#482 amazing color!
