Two of the fashion industry's largest figure heads were found guilty of tax evasion in an Italian court. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were first charged with tax evasion back in 2011. After a retrial and appeal, the Italian Supreme Court handed in it's verdict-GUILTY! How much you ask? I billion euros which translates to 1.3 billion American dollars! Dolce and Gabbana were not the only ones charged in this case, an undisclosed number of employees were also charged. They along with Dolce and Gabbana were sentenced to a year and eight months in prison. We all know American prisons are nothing like the prisons around the world. We assume that this verdict will be appealed. What will become of the empire we will soon learn in the future.

So I decided to try my hand at making homemade kale chips after seeing numerous blog posts online. I'm aiming for healthier lifestyle, I gave this chip alternative a try. On my local grocery run, I picked up a small bundle of kale and was excited to give a new treat a try.
I first washed the kale and layed them to dry.
I the tore the leaves off the stems, dipped them in olive oil, and placed them on a cookie sheet. Once all the leave were on a cookie sheet, I seasoned them with oregano (see first pic). I baked the kale for about ten minutes at 350 degrees.
I really wanted to like kale chips, but they literally tasted like leaves, dried leaves. I don't know if I scorched them, but they were not appetizing. I have some left, so I'll give it another try, and if it doesn't work, that's it!

L'Oreal Jet Set to Paris
I can't believe I have never tried any of L'Oreal's nail polishes. I've walked passed them in the beauy aisles of many a store, but only recenty decided to give the brand a try. Being cautious, I only purchased one and was pleasantly pleased. Jet Set to Paris is he name of this blue polish. I think i should be called "Greecian Blue" or "Aquatic". I don't think of Paris when I see this color. Either way, blue is my favorite color and this shade has spring written all over it! More shades of this poish will definitely be in my future.
