I have spent the entire month of August either looking at food or teacher things on Pinterest. Last night I found myself pinning clothes and I just had to share a few things with you.

Last school year I got the cutest bag made by Thirty One and I just had to show you guys. Since it is my teacher bag I chose to have "stay classy" embroidered on it.

Cajun Chicken Alfredo
I absolutely love this meal! It could be the fact that it has two of my favorite thing in it, sun-dried tomatos and wine. My mom got this recipe from my cousin randomly and now I am obsessed with it.
Ingredients* 4 (5-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* 1 cup blackening spice
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 3 tablespoons minced garlic
* 1 cup roughly chopped marinated sun-dried tomatoes
* 1/4 cup white wine
* 3 cups heavy cream
* 3/4 cup grated Parmesan
* 1 teaspoon sea salt
* 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 pound cooked whole grain fettuccine
* 1/2 cup sliced scallions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Dredge the chicken breasts in the blackening spice and place in a cast iron skillet over very high heat. Blacken both sides of the chicken and place in the oven for 10 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Slice in strips on the bias and set aside.
In a saute pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Add garlic and lightly caramelize. Then add the sun-dried tomatoes and the chicken slices. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add the heavy cream, increase the heat to a simmer, and reduce the cream sauce by half.
When the cream sauce is to desired consistency, stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, and pasta.
Nest the pasta on large rimmed plates, pour sauce over pasta, and garnish with scallions and the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.

As you guys know I got a Clarisonic for my birthday a few weeks ago. I have been dying to write a review about it but I wanted to use the Mia 2 for a while before writing about it. Now that I have used the brush for about three weeks I feel that I can give an accurate review. I figured I would answers the questions I had before using the Clarisonic now that I know the answers.
What Exactly Does It Do?
During puberty I was blessed with amazing flawless skin. I had no idea what getting a pimple was like until college. After graduating college and beginning job hunting; I started having stress related breakouts. Since then I don't get much acne but I do have acne scars and I feel like my skin isn't as smooth as it once was. Well I wanted my skin back and thats why I got a Clarisonic. The brush head gently messages your face and rids your skin of all the gook from the day.
How Do You Use It?
I use my Mia 2 twice a day every single day. I wet my face with hot water then put my Cetaphil directly on the Clarisonic brush head In the morning I use it after showering (the Clarisonic is waterproof so you can take it in the shower if you like) and then again at night. When I wear make up I use a make up removing toilette before using the Mia 2. I have a Deep Pore Brush Head that I use once a week.
What's The Maintenance Like?
After using my Clarisonic I run the brush head under hot water then dry it on a towel. I do a deep clean once a week with antibacterial soap and water. I have had my Mia 2 for three weeks and besides the initial charge I have only had to charge it once.
Does it Work?
YES YES YES!!!! My skin is soft, my dark spots have already started to leave and moisturizer goes on smoother.

Well it's finally here...my last full week of summer vacation. I am trying to soak up these last few days and spend time doing a whole lot of nothing. On Sunday I spent the day with two co-workers at Kung Fu for Sunday Funday. We spent the day drinking dollar Mimosas and playing games. I also tried a Bloody Mary which was way to spicy and I kind of hated it.

Ahhh!!!! I cannot believe I reached my goal of 10,000 views!!! I am so appreciative of everyone who has stopped by this year. I vow to keep improving and update for you guys more often. In two weeks I go back to work so look out for more outfit post.
I hate when I ask people what they are wearing and they say "oh I got this years ago". Well this morning I found a dress in my closet that I honestly dont remember buying. I tried to find you guys two dresses that are affordable and similar.

July has always been my favorite month of the year; mainly because it is my birthday month. This July was jammed packed with activities like going to Canada, being a bridesmaid in my friends wedding and of course turing 25.
I am always looking for new apps to waste time with and I think I found a new favorite. It's called Song Pop! Basically it's Name That Tune for the 21st century. This app is available on iphone, ipad and android phones.
I can't be the only one who keeps seeing photos on Instagram with these cool light spots. Well I wanted to know where people where getting this cool effect and this month I figured it out. I achieve this effect using PicFx.
I am a total Esty stalker. I look at products but I never buy anything. Well a week ago I decided to finally purchase something. I got this beautiful gold and plastic chain bracelet and I am in love with the quality and how light weight it is.
