This year I wanted to try something new and different. So, I settled on champagne cake with strawberry cream cheese frosting .. and it was amazing! Delicious, decadent and a great way to make cake an adult treat!
To make this yummy cake:
Use a white cake mix and replace liquid (water/milk) with champagne!
For the frosting I made a simple cream cheese frosting using honey instead of sugar. I also used fresh strawberry puree to sweeten and add the light pink color.
I topped it with strawberry halves and edible flowers!
This is probably my favorite snack. It's easy and healthy! Just cut the avocado in half and pour your favorite hotsauce in the middle!
I tend to get bored with going to the gym or just don't have the time. I love squeezing workouts into my day wherever I can. Here's a few of my favorites that are easy to do on the go or at home.
- Arm circles
Stand with arms straight out and do 10 circles forward and backwards. Do small, medium, and large circles.
Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Bend at knees to almost a sitting position. Make sure to keep your knees behind your toes!
- Calf raises
Stand with feet 1-3" apart. Lift heel, lower back to ground, repeat.
*Use cans of soup or water bottles as weights while doing any of these!
Staying in shape keeps me mentally in tune and physically ready for work and life.
I had an incredible evening out this week at the Samsung GalaxyS6 event with the amazing Alexandra Boylan. Not only did I get to see some friends and enjoy great entertainment but I also got to play with all the new Samsung devices!
This past Monday I was a guest on the Guy Talk radio show on LA Talk radio. This was my second time chatting with these guys and they are always entertaining! During this show we discuss guns, wrestling, coyotes and more! Here is a link to this past monday's show 4/27/15
Hi my dears,
Your donation to the 2015 Walk for Animals will help Animal Humane Society provide care to nearly 24,000 homeless and neglected animals each year, supporting medical treatments like spay/neuter surgeries, behavior rehabilitation, community education, and other initiatives aimed at making the world a better place for animals.
I had such a rest time volunteering yesterday at this event. I meet some very nice people including Mr. Shatner himself and his beautiful wife. The arena show was a lot of fun showcasing some great reining.
After that there was a great dinner and auction for all of he wonderful organizations. There was also great entertainment! Reo speedwagon performed!
It was a wonderful evening and I'm already looking forward to next years!
I will be volunteering tomorrow at the Hollywood Charity Horse Show at the Burbank Equestrian Center. Hosted by William Shatner all proceeds go to numerous wonderful charities including AHEAD With Horse, E.L.S.A., and Horses4Heroes, Inc. To see the full list of charities and sponsors or to purchase your ticket visit: horseshow.org
I will post more about the event and maybe even some pictures afterwards!
Hello my dears,
I have recently tried making my own deodorant and am surprisingly happy with the results! I have been using it for 5 days now. With regular deodorant I am not only being exposed to chemicals but having to reapply on hotter days. With the DIY deodorant I have not had to reapply and have not had any staining on my clothing plus it's all natural! I used lavender essential oil to add something extra! Use your favorite essential oil to personalize your deodorant.
1/3c coconut oil
2tbs baking soda
5-8 drops essential oil (optional)
Mix coconut oil and baking soda together using the back of a spoon and then add essential oil. Put into container of choice.

Have fun making this and enjoy the benefits!!
