ATV Tour & Bull Riding | Vlog

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

Everything from planting irises and volunteering at the nursing house to ATVs, Bull riding (which was the first for me) and armadillo race is in this vlog…

So many new experiences in one day! We had an amazing day with amazing people at the Beaumont Ranch, where we enjoyed delicious food, beautiful nature and fun activities.

I absolutely loved the ATV tour and the only reason I chose it over zip lining is because I thought I would just sit in the front seat while Daniel is driving LOL… And when the first group left to do zip lining and I saw that I’m the only girl left to do an ATV tour I got a little suspicious, but it was too late to change my mind. It turned out that ATV tour on 4 wheelers was more difficult and extreme than zip lining…well, I had no idea, but now I’m really happy that I got to do it because I had so much fun riding the 4 wheeler up and down the hills and seeing all the beautiful nature around us!

I knew what bull riding was, though, and I absolutely didn’t want to do that, Daniel just literally dragged me and sat me on that bull (thanks, love :/ LOL). Can’t say that I enjoyed it but I’m glad that I tried it…

Have you ever done any of this stuff? Which one did you enjoy the most?

PCA Skin Revitalizing Eye Gel | Review

Beauty, Reviews

pca-skin-eye-gel

Brand claims:

This cutting-edge eye gel strengthens, firms and lifts the skin around the entire eye area. This unique formulation utilizes the latest science, combining proven ingredients in a single formulation that can be applied directly to all areas around the eye, including the eyelid, to treat all the common concerns of the aging eye area and achieve dramatic results rapidly. Its light gel texture is excellent for all skin types.

• One product to treat dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging eyelids simultaneously
• Can be applied directly to the eyelid to firm and lift
• Has a light, silky texture
• Rapid results seen within one week

pca-skin-eye-gel-livingwithjane

My thoughts: 

I’m usually not a fan of gel texture in skin care products. I never feel like they do anything to my skin. But the texture of this revitalizing eye gel is richer, heavier (in a good way) and creamier than other eye gels that I’ve used in the past. It moisturizes the entire area around the eyes, and it’s safe to use right before applying a concealer. In spite of how moisturizing this eye gel is, it has a light silky texture and doesn’t cause a concealer to move or slide.  The packaging is very simple but so convenient and easy to use. It’s not bulky or heavy which makes it travel-friendly as well. I still have dark circles, but with the sleep that I get or don’t get I should say, it would be a true miracle if anything could remove them. I don’t have many fine lines or wrinkles (just yet… Thank God!), so it’s hard for me to say if this eye gel really treats sagging eyelids or wrinkles, but I do really like the way it feels on my skin, and I never forget to use it in the morning and at night.

You can find more info about PCA Skin Ideal Complex Revitalizing Eye Gel here. It was featured in The Oprah Magazine and Allure.

12 Weeks Meal Plan | Week 12

Egg, Bacon and Avocado Quesadilla

Egg-Bacon-Avocado-Quesadilla

(source)

  • 3 rashers of streaky bacon, chopped
  • 4 flour tortillas (Note 1)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 large avocado, halved and sliced
  • ½ cup grated cheese (I used cheddar)
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the bacon and cook until cooked to your liking. Remove bacon onto a paper towel lined plate.
  2. Drain excess fat from the skillet and wipe away/scrape off any black bits. Return to the stove over medium heat.
  3. Place a tortilla in the skillet. Place avocado slices around the rim of half the tortilla and thinner slices across the middle to form a “ring” to hold the egg – as per the photo below. Squish the pieces close together to seal them so egg does not leak.
  4. Crack an egg into the centre, sprinkle with bacon, cheese and season with salt and pepper. Fold the tortilla over and cook for 4 minutes or until golden and crisp. I usually cook 2 in the skillet.
  5. Flip, turning over the folded edge (i.e. slide the flip under the curved edge and flip over the folded edge). Cook the other side for 3 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from the skillet. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  6. Serve immediately, while hot!

My CustomInk Experience (Behind The Scenes)

Dallas, Texas, Everything else, Lifestyle, Reviews

customink

Several weeks ago I was invited to take a tour at CustomInk’s Production Facility in Flower Mound, TX, and I was seriously blown away by how they make and customize t-shirts. Behind every t-shirt and every CustomInk’s product, there is so much work involved, so many people who work behind the scenes creating a perfect t-shirt. I never really give a thought to how t-shirts are actually created, especially when it’s so easy to design and order them online, using CustomInk Design Lab with 75 000 + pieces of art to choose from (or you can create your own design). They use several methods to make their t-shirts: embroidery, digital printing, and screen printing. You have to watch the whole process for yourself, and you will also see how I screen printed my own t-shirt (it was a lot of fun and took a lot of muscle work lol) ↓:

You can order CustomInk products for ANY event in your life..big or small: wedding, reunion, graduation, vacation, for your business, sports team etc. Here are several samples:  Continue reading “My CustomInk Experience (Behind The Scenes)”

House Makeover | Before & After

Dallas, Texas, DIY/How to, Everything else, Family, Lifestyle

house-makeover-livingwithjane

I’m finally posting before and after photos of our house makeover!!

We’ve recently moved to our new house and still in the process of unpacking the boxes (can’t wait to be done with that). We bought the house in February and we fell in love with it at first glance. We love everything about it: the layout, the size of the rooms, the fact that it’s a one-story house, and it has everything we want our perfect house to have including the backyard and of course, the pool (it’s Texas for God’s sake :-)).

It’s our first family house and first time to do any kind of remodeling. We were very excited to begin the process and to choose the paint colors, tile, appliances etc. It was very fun (more fun at the beginning than at the end lol), but it was also very overwhelming at the same time…we even had to choose the color of the grout (yes, I didn’t even think there were so many options of grout colors :-)).

We made all of our choices and then I began to worry if it would look good when it was all set and done. I didn’t want to pay more just to change and redo something that I chose myself at the first place.

Even though we wanted our house to look beautiful we were also trying to make practical choices like we made an office room instead of having a formal dining room because we need an office space since I work from home, and we can always have big dinners in the kitchen area.

Here are several Before and After photos. And below you will also find a Before/After Video + the fun process of remodeling.

This is the kitchen. The kitchen cabinets are real wood, so we decided to just paint them white instead of completely changing them since the quality is really good. We changed the floors, countertops, backsplash, sink and appliances.

Dove Root Lift Spray | Review

Beauty, Reviews

dove-root-lift-spray

I remember standing in the “Hair Care” aisle one day looking for something innovative and awesome for my hair, but I wasn’t sure what exactly I was looking for, I just knew that my hair needed a little extra something to look better than it really was. Then I saw this Dove Root Lift Spray, and I thought to myself that it could be a game changer for my hair if it really worked, and of course, I had to try it. So here’s a little bit about the product:

Brand Claims:

Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray lifts hair from the roots for added body and fullness.

Formulated with Oxyfusion Technology for Moisture

The Oxygen Moisture range is made with Oxyfusion Technology, a new generation of moisture and provides 95 percent more volume*.

Lifts from the Roots for Natural-Looking Bounce

This light mist provides targeted lift from the roots, where hair tends to be weighed down, for body and natural-looking bounce.

My Opinion:

 

I use it ALL THE TIME since the day I got it, I haven’t even shopped for an alternative like I usually like to do because I’m so in love with this product. I don’t know how this spray does its magic, I just know that it works. I use it mostly after I straighten my hair with a flat iron, that’s when my hair needs the most volume, and without it, my hair looks just really flat. I usually spray it on my dry hair, but it works on wet hair as well. And it smells amazing!

How to Use: Spray close to hair targeting roots for better lift. Use a brush for beautiful finish throughout the day.

Size: 3.3 oz

Price: $5.98

Where to get: Amazon
