Q Beyonce's "Hey Goldmember"

Camila Alves took her hubby's new movie title, "Gold", very literally at the NYC Premiere last week. Alves opted for a gold lace frock with both fringe and applique detailing. Although some may think that frock is too much, I think the overbearing amount of detail is what makes this piece unique and artistic. However, the over-kill of the necklace and earring combo is throwing me off, big time. I mean individually these are stunning pieces and maybe if Camila just wore the earrings that would have complimented the overall look, but worn together was a bit of a mistake. I did like that Alves kept her hair and make up simple, going with a top knot and natural eyes with a nude lip. I guess all we can hope for is that "Gold" is as good as this frock was on Camila Alves!

Embellishment to the MAX!

Zoe Saldana walked the Black Carpet at the Hollywood Premiere of "Live By Night" last week wearing this heavily embellished turtleneck and tea-length skirt, and all I can say is OBSESSED! Saldana kept accessories and glam to a minimal with white stilettos and simple stud earrings, while a straight blowout and natural makeup with a bold lip completed her H2T look. This may not be Zoe's best look but I am loving this seasonally appropriate outfit that screams red carpet worthy.

What's For Dinner Tonight: Turkey Soup

It's the dead of Winter and there's nothing better than curling up on the couch, watching a great chick flick, and enjoying a homemade bowl of Soup! And this Turkey Soup is not only yummy and filling, it is also extremely healthy and super cheap to whip together! I had used left over Turkey from dinner the night before so I only needed to buy the Veggies and Broth, which was less than $8.50! You could also use Chicken, if you have some left over or prefer Chicken to Turkey. (Just bake the Chicken for 20 minutes at 450 degrees.) Overall I highly recommend this Soup for multiple reasons, you won't be disappointed, I can promise you that!
Happy Cooking and Eating!


Ingredients:
1. Turkey - 2 Breasts Shredded
2. White Potato - 4 Chopped
3. Carrots - 4 Chopped
4. Celery - 4 Stocks Chopped
5. Kale - 1 Cup Chopped
6. Onion - 1 Chopped
7. Diced Tomato - 1 28oz Can
8. Chicken Broth - 5 Cups
9. Salt & Pepper - To Taste

Directions:
1. Bake Turkey Breasts in the Oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes per pound.
2. Chop up all Veggies and Shred Turkey Breasts once finished baking.
3. Mix together all Veggies, Chicken Broth, and Diced Tomato, and bring to a boil. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Then turn down heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
4. After you let simmer for approximately 20 minutes add in Shredded Turkey Breasts and continue to simmer for another 20-30 minutes.
5. Plate and Enjoy!

Mini Review: Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Maque

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Macadamia Professional makes THE BEST Hair Mask!
I feel as though this discovery for me is pretty much the same way people felt when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon for the first time! Honestly, Macadamia Professional's Weightless Moisture Masque is THAT life changing! I started using the Weightless Moisture Masque approximately 4 months ago and have been using it on a weekly basis ever since. I use to have extremely dry (more straw-like) hair with constantly breaking split ends, all due to over heat styling and this mask has transformed my hair tremendously, like night and day difference! Also, my hair has grown a significant amount since I started used it, which is even more exciting because I always thought my hair just wouldn't grow! The exclusive Pro Oil Complex used in conjunction with Key Ingredients: Macadamia Oil, Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Walnut Oil, Humectants, and Vitamin E are the main reasons why this mask will transform your hair from drab to fab! Also, every single Key Ingredient helps with either Moisturizing, Strengthening, or overall Hair Health, all while being uncommonly lightweight (this product is made for Baby-Fine to Fine hair people). Also, the Weightless Moisture Masque is Sulfates-Free, Parabens-Free, Gluten-Free, Colour Safe, and (most importantly) Cruelty-Free! Honestly, doesn't this Masque just sound dreamy, I am actually thinking of hopping in the shower now to use it! And once you're in there all you need is 5-10 minutes to let it absorb and do its thang. Then you'll have hair as hydrated and strong as mine! As you can tell I can't say enough about the Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Masque other than I'm sad because I'm almost out!

NOTE: You can purchase Macadamia Professional Products on Amazon.ca (by Macadamia Natural Oil), and Amazon.ca is on Ebates, which means Cash Back! Who doesn't love putting money back into their wallet?  If you haven't signed up for Ebates yet click HERE!

Jessica Biel Is Rocking The 2017 Red Carpet

It's been a big week of appearances for Jessica Biel, who usually stays away from the lime light, and I'm not complaining! This time Biel walked the Red Carpet for The Grove, LA Screening of her upcoming film "The Book Of Love' wearing this amazing jumpsuit with embroidered blouse. Keeping accessories, hair, and make up simple, Biel finished off her look with a black box clutch, kohl lined eyes, peach glossy lips, and soft center-parted waves. And we can't forget about her most important accessory, husband Justin Timberlake, who wasn't looking to bad himself!
