Find your red lipstick. It never goes out of Fashion


Coco Chanel, Marilyn Monroe, Gwen Stephanie…The red lips never left the scene and will always be in Fashion.
Revlon, Red revival is my first choice for myself in this picture.
All reds are not the same.
I have heard a lot of people saying that red lipstick does not look good on them.
Try a lot of lipsticks to find the right shade for you.
Another to try is Loreal’s ravishing red (312) . See Gwen Stephanie’s picture.



Also welcome friends from the blog hop. Leave a comment and i will follow back.

Some news and my Crockpot cake

They ruled out Ectopic pregnancy, appendicitis, abscess Friday at the ER. Then, they called me this morning to tell me that an exam came back positive for an infection....To tell you the truth. I fell much better now that i know what is going on..I am still hurting and i am sure the medication will take a while to work but i will be ok.
Thank you so much for your care and prayers...I know prayers work.

For my Naturalization. I am an American citizen only. I don't have dual.
My kids and Hubby are Americans. This is the right thing for me and i feel good about my decision. I am exited about voting and i feel like i belong.

I tried to renew my French Passport for 2 years to no success and after crying over it for 2 years. The mountain of paper work...I never saw the end.  Money to spend going to the Embassy in San Francisco. It came to my mind that i should get Naturalized....Then, this Peace fell on me...i felt relief. That same evening, i prepared the papers and send them the next morning...The process has been so easy and tear free. I know it was supposed to be...I am very happy.

I am glad to be in a Free Country, where i can decide what i want to do in my life. What job i want to do. Where i want to live. Who i want to be with...Freedom of religion, Freedom has no price...I am so grateful.



I made this cake today...Super easy and very yummy...The Crockpot does all the work for you...

Crockpot Chocolate cherry cake

1 Box of Chocolate cake mix,
1 can of Cherries pie filling,
1 cup sour cream or 1 can evaporated milk.

Mix it all in the Crockpot. Cook on high until done. If it start burning without being done in the middle, turn to low until done.
The cake should have a thick pudding texture.
Enjoy !
Before...

After...
It was perfect for a snowy day...Like today...This is comfort food...

What is wrong with me

I have been very sick and on the verge of passing out for a week now.
If you are new to this blog. I had a car accident one month ago. A stupid car accident. I reared end the truck in front of me...And i have to add...I am a very good driver and it is upsetting. Anyways. I had to go to the emergency room this morning. I tried to go through the doctor and all that... but it was going nowhere. They kept on changing my appointments. Ordering the wrong ultrasound.
I was going to die, not literally but kind of....So goes the ER.
They did all possible tests and it all came back negative.
So here i am, on the verge of passing out and nothings show up wrong.  All i can do is lay down and pray it will pass.
Thank you so much for your prayers and the love, it means the world to me.

French Country party invitations


This picture is from the Graphic Fairy. I played with it on Photoshop.
Used the bandage erasing tool. Erased the print and replaced it by my text.


Then printed them in wallet sizes.


Chose the color of blank card stock.


Then i chose 2 different fabrics. A tassel.
Fringe the gingham fabric with scissors.



I added a button and cut the back with my jewelry pliers.


Glued it all together. You can hot glue it too. It is faster. I used a small glue gun.


You can also place the tassel on the bottom to make a mark page.
Put a hole on the top and pretty ribbon for a tag.


The party links are on my bar.

Roti de pork en croute recipe from the French Country party



The first thing you want to do is to cook your pork roast in the pan completely.
I added 3 apples and minced garlic.


When the roast is cooked, place it in the fridge for a couple hours and mash the apples (without the skin) and garlic together to make a sauce.


You need 2 pie crusts from the refrigerated section.


Place your roast on the first pie crust and cover with the garlic apple sauce.


Cover with the 2nd pie crust. brush with a some egg or milk. make sure you poke with a knife air vents and decorate with the extra crust according to the event or season.
Cook according to the pie crust directions.


Serve in your favorite dish !

Crepes cake from the French Country party


This is the Crepe cake i made for my Hubby's French Country Birthday party.
This is the original crepe recipe i have. I am very picky about crepes. They should be with sugar, thin and tasty.

Crepes recipe

3 cup milk,
4 eggs,
1/4 cup sugar or Agave nectar,
2 cups flour,
pinch of salt,
extract of choice (vanilla, Anise, or orange flower water )
Butter or vegetable oil for pan.

Whisk all the ingredients with an electric whisk.
The batter should be as a very light pancake batter.



The non stick  pan should alway be buttered or oiled. Do this with the paper towel after each crepe. 


Use a small amount of batter and roll it around to make a thin layer of crepe batter.
With spatula, lift the edges when cooked and flip around.
You want a light brown color like when you cook pan cakes.


Store the crepes in the fridge to cool with parchment paper between each crepes.
The crepes should be cold before assembly.

Spread a thin layer of Nutella,  whip cream from a can (at least 2 cans). Assemble each crepes after the spreads are on.
Add Strawberries on top.


The recipe is for a small cake.
Make sure your crepes fit your pedestal.
Double the recipe for big crepes cake.
Cut in the top crepe with a sharp knife to fit the candles.
Enjoy ! So good !
