Easy Guacamole with Cilantro


Well Hello there, it feels like its been awhile but I'm back with another recipe post. Yay! This past week I have been craving and I mean CRAVING! Guacamole! I was totally on a health kick and fell off completely, but with the holiday season coming up that might be a challenge. I decided to make some healthy guacamole with blue corn tortilla chips (which taste AMAZING might I say) but I wanted to play around with it so I added some cilantro. Now usually when I make guacamole I just add avocado and tomato but I was feeling good . lol :) The only thing I forgot is the lemon...because I didn't have any:( but its okay, if you like lemon just add the juice, it also helps so the avocado doesn't turn brown so quickly. Enough chit chat lets get started on this little recipe. 

 So here are my delicious ingredients 
CILANTRO, 2 SMALL TOMATOES AND 2 RIPE AVOCADOS 
** you will know the avocados are ripe when they are slightly soft and Dark Brown, NOT GREEN

I start by doing the usual mashing avocados with a fork ,without the seed of course:)



 Now for the chopped tomatoes and chopped cilantro (you only need a few pieces of cilantro)

 last but not least adding some garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt





 Hope you guys enjoyed this Recipe



Until Next Time XOXO<3

Overcoming Fear & Just Be Happy... (Free Spirit Friday)




Hey,
This past week has been a battle of emotions for me.....I'm not going to lie. Over coming fear or the feeling of rejection can be one of the hardest things to deal with! But knowing that end result will pay off is what should really be the main focus. Stepping out on the limb and doing something you may have never done before gives me the bubbly feeling in my stomach. Actually when I think about it I just want to curl up in a ball and hide lol But this is life and you cant do that or you will never grow and prosper. I'm writing this post to say....well, never let fear or rejection stand in the way. Yes its there, and in present time its the worst most scary feeling ever. But getting over a challenge and doing it still gives you a sense of accomplishment for me at least it does. Even if you fail, you can always say you tried and took a big step. I would say try not to think of the cons or what can go wrong, but rather think of the good and how happy you are, doing something you love. If you want to join a sport but you may not have the confidence to do it. Just think what if you go out there and make a killing! Stop thinking of the bad in every thing you do. I feel like that's how you grow. just take a leap and go for what you like to do. You don't get anywhere if you don't at least try. Even if you had no one to believe in you. believe in yourself (cliche line) I know but very accurate. You are in control of your own life not others. and well sometimes you have to think outside the four walls you live in.
There's a whole world out there just for you. It doesn't just belong to one person or only certain people. It belongs to everyone and  we should all enjoy our lives and do what makes you happy! Stepping over the small hurdle of fear can get us so much further. I'm not just talking about jobs or careers, even in you personal life. You are never stuck in any situation! We all deserve to be treated right and fairly, we also have the right to be just HAPPY! what ever happen to that. Sometimes it seems like when your happy people can be so judgmental, like calm down I, we, people, have the right to be HAPPY! sooooo ...I hope I didn't bore you with my little rant. But its friday and I'm calling it free spirit friday! A time to just chill relax and express my thoughts. Anyways love you



until next time

Burlap Covered Memo Cork Board

I went searching the web for really cute cork boards to buy and well I didn't find any I like that were a reasonable price, so I decided to make one. I needed a place to post my outfit ideas, important notes, etc. I am so In love with the board. I actually want to make other ones with different colors. I don't what I would do with all of them but I'll find a use. This project is really easy if you already have a cork board at home. Lets Get Started!!!



What you will need:
Cork Board (any size)
Staple Gun
Burlap Fabric (enough to fit the cork board) 

Lay the Burlap Fabric Face Down and the cork board face down on top of the Fabric
Now Fold in The Edges and get to Stapling!!!
**Its better to use a memo board with a wood border so the staples have something to attach to:)**


If you have extra fabric on the side just trim it down. Also make sure to leave space on the corners so you can still hang the memo 
board up. 



The back should end up looking a little like this!


                          End Result!




Hope you enjoyed this really easy DIY Memo Board! Let me know what fabric you chose or if you have some cool ideas for memo boards!


Until Next Time XOXO<3
