1 month anniversary!!

Hi, dearies!!! I hope everything is well with all of you. I've been being a bad girl lately. I've been really lazy with school and stuff, but the sad part is that I don't care!! I've always been a perfect student-totally reliable and it's kind of fun not being like that once in a while. I mean, I'm not gonna let myself go, but I'm just having more fun. For example: I got a boyfriend this weekend, and we've been hanging out so much for the past week. He's the guy with the Edward Cullen eyes that I talked about in my last post, and obviously, he's my lab partner. I wanted an Edward Cullen romance so bad!!! But, can you blame me?? My point exactly.

On Valentine's Day, he came over my house after he was at a car show. We were determined not to go to sleep because we wanted to be those people who go out to breakfast in the morning without sleeping in between. We did a lot of random stuff-totally G-rated (haha, I promise!!) and by 5 am, I was starving. We went to Eat N Park and I got a gardenburger. It's not raw, but lately, I've just been eating what feels right. We decided (or I decided) to put some ink on us, so I covered Corey in about 8 tattoos and I had one right on my chest. It's totally classy don't you think?? Ignore the red mark next to mine. I think I had a bugbite or something. haha

After we got home around 6 am, he asked me out and I was like "where are we going?" But of course I said yes so that's the end of that romantic girl crap.

The post today is dedicated to my 1 month anniversary of not using shampoo!!! Ahh It is so obvious that I haven't used shampoo. My hair is SOOO oily. I've been wearing it in a ponytail all the time or just wet because wet hair doesn't look so bad on me, but I could be wrong haha I'm not gonna fall back on this though. I'm determined to get good, healthy hair. One mistake I made was putting jojoba oil in my hair for a conditioning treatment. What a bad idea!!! Of course, it was on V-day and the oil wouldn't wash out of my hair. I rinsed 3 times with baking soda and I still looked like a grease-monkey. Oh well, I guess my confidence and outgoing personality surpass my shitty hair... thank God!!!

Have a great week my friends!! I think about you every day :)

Salsa in your pj's

Hello my dear friends!! Oh have I missed you so. Sorry I haven't been blogging lately. I had a few tests this past week so I've been studying for those puppies. They went pretty well. I got a 90% in Statistics and an 80% in Chemistry. I will happily take both of those!! Also, I've been daydreaming a lot about Robert Pattinson of course.... BUT!!!!!! (yes, there's a but) there is this one boy who is absolutely adorable. He has Edward Cullen eyes and they just make me melt. I could stare at them all day. I sound like such a whiney girl talking about him, but I can't help it, damnit!

Besides that, I got a special delivery from my friend, Scott. He makes his own salsas and relishes by fermentation. They are living and vegan, so it's the best of both worlds. He lives in Pennsylvania and obviously, Pennsylvanians are really smart and can make GREAT food.

My sister and I really enjoyed these!! She eats the majority of the salsa in my house so the salsa vanished pretty quickly. She loved posing for pictures haha NOT. I always manage to get her when she's in her pj's with no makeup on, so that always cracks me up.

Scott sent us Mild Salsa and Hot Salsa. It was so cool because it bubbled when we opened the jar!! It was like a salsa volcano. The mild isn't very spicy so that's the one I liked more. My sister likes the hot one though.

But I'm more of a relish person myself, so I've been eating relish with everything. He sent the Garlic Dill Relish and the Horseradish Dill Relish. These are really good. In my house, we always have the regular kind with that Pelican on the jar, but Scott's is REAL relish. It tastes so different and it doesn't have that gel-like consistency of the regular kind. I ate mine on top of salads and on raw burgers.

So if you like salsa or relish, you should definitely give this a try. They are sold at some Whole Foods stores, but you can get them online at his website, too. I forgot to say that the fermentation process also makes the salsa and relish a lot healthier. Scott explains the science of it so much better than I ever could haha:

"Right now, we have 2 salsas (Hot and Mild) and 2 relishes (Horseradish Dill and Garlic Dill), all of which are preserved only through the ancient and natural art of lacto-fermentation. It’s a simple and live-giving process, where beneficial bacteria like Lactobacillus Acidophilus convert the starches and sugars of the raw vegetables into lactic acid (hence the term “lacto-fermentation”) and preserve the entire food, with its full compliment of enzymes, vitamins and minerals. We use no sugars or sugar substitutes in our products, and we use only a small amount of raw apple cider vinegar in our relishes (none in the salsas)."

So there you go. Enjoy my friends and Happy SATURDAY!! Stay warm and misbehave ;)
