Things I Tried From Pinteres: Flourless Banana Pancakes

I'm an avid "pinner". I LOVE Pinterest. I pinned a flourless banana recipe a while back. While on my journey to a healthier and cleaner diet, I jumped at the notion that I didn't have to give up my beloved pancakes. The recipe only calls for a few ingredients: 1 banana, two eggs, cinnamon and vanilla extract.  It was an easy to follow recipe. Check below to see step-by-step pictures and my thoughts on the dish!

Friday Fun: The Role Our Nose Plays in Cosmetics

I've done it, and you've done it. We've smelled a product before even reading it's claims. We've been turned off or on just because of how something smells. We've used products more than others because all we really wanted to do is smell it. Working in the cosmetics industry, I've seen first hand just how important and time consuming choosing a fragrance can be. I aim to produce educational posts alongside the fashion and beauty articles, and what a great way to start 2014 than to spread a little knowledge about our nose. I found this simple yet educational video on The Chemists Corner website, and it's all about our nose and the role it plays in our daily lives. Enjoy!

Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Few realize the impact of  Pantone's yearly chosen color. Nail polishes, clothes, and accessories will flood the stores in shades of purple. Mark my words. While orchid is typically a spring color anyway, you can always tell when something is popular for the season, because it pops up everywhere. Can't wait to incorporate it into my wardrobe.
