Happy New Years!!!

Usually I am all for getting dressed up, going out, counting down the New Year. This year how ever we have been running so much, and had to work till six on New Years eve. I just honestly was ready to take advantage of all that and have a slow, laid back kind of night! We decided to have dinner with friends, head to the house, and bring in the New Year on the couch. 

We started out trying to have dinner at Durama's. Our favorite Japanese Steak house! It was so packed and the line was so long that we decided to try a new place. The Copper Tap House!

The atmosphere here was great. I loved the whole decor, lighting and etc. We ordered our appetizers and the queso dip was amazing. Step two soup and salads, the Chicken tortilla soup was perfection,  also were great! I highly recommend these to anyone! Then came the disappointing part. 

The dinner...... I ordered the island sliders,  the Hawaiian Beef w/ pineapple was dry, and over cooked. The Cheese and pineapple on it were cold and unappealing. Kalua Pig was great. Pulled pork on a slider bun with a tangy sauce. The Scallop Burger w/cilantro-lime mayo....well the description was misleading it was a crab cake with scallops instead of crab so it was pretty much bread between bread. The cilantro lime sauce was very tasty and I loved it just not the slider it was on. 

My friend Tara ordered  Cuban Pan-Fried Whole-Tail Snapper A South Florida favorite which features the whole snapper covered with flour, paprika, cumin and salt and pepper and pan-fried until crispy. Served with Black Bean Mango salad.Ok so I have had a whole fish before but not like this:

Yes that is the entire fish sitting on the plate with it's mouth open and looking like it is about to swim off the plate. They said it was quite tasty though :) I found it quite intimidating!  

Other items I was a little disappointed in were:

The Half roasted chicken. I almost ordered this as I was looking for something on the lighter side. I was very glad I didn't it came with seriously a 5 pound bag of potatoes mashed and loaded!!

There were other high and low spots of the dinner. But for the most part I would highly suggest the appetizers, salad, and soup but would shy away from the entrees.

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!

2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.

3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
