L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream Review #SheSpeaks

The beautysphere has been ablaze with talk of "BB creams".  I have been wanting to try them out but figured it was a passing fad.  However, that does not seem to be the case as every day there seems to be a new BB cream on the shelf at my local store.  Thanks to SheSpeaks I received a full size tube of L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream to try.    I did my research and found that many BB creams are perfect for those days when you don't want full foundation coverage and offer the benefits of a moisturizer, primer, skin protectant.  Given L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream is a L'Oréal product, I know it is a reputable product.  L'Oréal has a long standing history in the beauty business and their products still rank among the top selling beauty products worldwide.  However, would it right for me? L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream comes in 4 shades:            Fair             Light             Medium           Deep I chose to review the L'Oréal Paris Magic

My Favorite MorningStar Farms Recipe #BzzAgent

  I'm what my husband calls an "experimental cook".  I'm always mixing and creating and adding a lil' personalize touch to all of my recipes.  So after trying MorningStar Farms veggie patties and preparing according to directions, I decided to visit the website and have a little fun with our "Meatless Mondays". Los Tres Amigos are huge fans of quesadillas so I figured we'd try one of the many quesadilla recipes from the MorningStar Farms website.  They settled on Cheesy Black Bean Qu esadilla Tr iangles u sing MorningStar Farms Sp icy Black Bean Veggie Burgers. The recipe was easy to pre pare, plus I had many of the ingredients stocked in our fri dge already.   I admit they were quite tasty .   Since there was no ground turkey or beef to brown, I was able to whip up dinner quick, fast and in a hurry.    Tast e ?  Well, I loved it but it was a l il' too spicy for one of the kids , but the older ones didn't seem to mind

“The El Beso de Luz” Margarita - Perfect Valentines Day Cocktail

Tequila.  This is the most versatile Valentine’s Day drink.  Tequila?  Yes, tequila. Not only is tequila an aphrodisiac, but Santana (yes, the Santana of Woodstock and Black Magic Woman) likened his first warm taste of El Beso de Luz to the first time one falls in love. In fact, he was so moved by it that he gave the cocktail its name, a tribute to his wife Cindy.   Isn't that a sweet love story ? Feeling bitter? We think the citrus and vanilla notes, complimented by the knowledge that you’re about to indulge in one of Mexico’s finest exports will make that sour mood hard to maintain. Very smooth indeed.  Need a little something to relax , Valentine? Unlike other forms of alcohol, tequila – though not technically a stimulant – has been known to lo osen one up a bit.  As a fan of Carlos Santana and a lover of good tequila, I'm pleased to share wi th you the rec ipe he created .  Enjoy.   “The El Beso de Luz” Margarita (the kiss of light – Named by S
