Well I promised  you all I would have my YouTube channel up and running with a review and I have finally completed  it! Check out the video here and let me know what you think!


Degree MotionSense Deodorant Review:

This was my first review, and my first youtube video in about 8 years! There are a lot of Ums….and pauses, and it can be a little stale, but I added a few comical aspects to make it worth watching. I’m hoping to do more cooking tutorials and better reviews as time allows. Thanks for watching! Be sure to subscribe!

Santa Fe Style Rice and Beans Copy Cat Recipe

Hello all,

As a busy PA student I’m constantly thinking about how to eat right and save money, which is almost an oxymoron these days. Every time I go down the freezer isle, i fork over decent chunks of money for frozen meals from Smart Ones and Healthy Choice because of the time constraints I have in such an intense program. Every time I look at their meals however, I just get flustered and think…I could make this myself for soooo much cheaper!

Well I finally did just that, and I’d like to pass it on to you! This recipe makes about 8 servings so it is great for dinner with leftovers or to make your own freezer meals to take to lunch. Just portion it out into little zip locks baggies, defrost and throw it on a paper plate for a quick lunch.

**This recipe is vegetarian and gluten free if you use zatarains spanish rice mix**

I’m excited to tell you about my new copycat recipe for the Smart Ones Santa Fe Style Rice and Beans!  Great source of protein, low fat, and keeps you full! This one is super easy, and QUICK. You can make this in 10 minutes flat!  I guarantee it!


What You Will Need:

2 packets of Spanish rice mix
1 frozen package of corn 12 oz
2 cans red kidney beans 15.5 oz
1 Can tomato sauce 8 oz
1 Can diced green chilies 4 oz
1 pkg mozzarella cheese 8 0z
1 tbsp chili powder


I used great value for pretty much everything, and it turned out great. Also made it less than a dollar a serving! I also chose lower sodium options if they were available, such as the frozen corn, and beans and sauce without salt added.

Cook the rice on the stove top as directed. The Great Value and Knorr brands will cook in about 7 minutes, so you can add all the ingredients at once minus the cheese. If you are using a rice that takes longer to cook, add everything about 5 minutes before it is finished. Top with mozzarella.


See? I told you it was easy!

Now get cookin!

My First VoxBox From Influenster!

First VoxBox Ever…wooohoo!

20140921_215524Hello my dear readers!

It has definitely been a while since I have posted. PA school has taken quite the toll on my free time! However I wanted to take a quick moment to tell you I received my first VoxBox from Influenster. I received a complimentary full size deodorant of Degree MotionSense to test and review! I will be trying it out this week, and comparing it to my normal deodorant brand, ARRID. Supposedly this new degree deodorant protects you more as you move. I will be doing side by side comparisons during regular school days and work out days to see the results….

Stay tuned!
