FOODIE ALERT: BREAKFAST CUPCAKES

On Saturday, I woke up with a craving. A craving for something new.

Then, it hit me.

I’d been holding off on trying a fun, creative way of having breakfast that I was inspired by on Instagram of all places.

Breakfast cupcakes.

Cupcakes? How could cupcakes be a part of breakfast? They are anything but!

Do not lose yourself in a dark world of hysteria trying to figure this out, for I have the answer ready for you because it is possible.

Image

Aren’t they just beautiful? 😀

All you need are eggs, baconcheese (shredded)hashbrown (optional), and peppers (optional).

I chose to use bacon, peppers, and shredded cheese for mine. Mainly because I didn’t have hashbrown available so I’ll definitely make another post for that one.

And so it begins…

I made 12 cupcakes for 6 people; 2 cupcakes a person. Thankfully, the tray already has 12 molds.

Image

The instructions are simple:

Heat oven to 400°F

Place foil liner in each of 12 molds and spray with generous amount of cooking spray

12 Eggs (or as many as you think you’d need – 1 per person is suffice)

(Mix in a bowl and add a little bit of milk for extra fluff)

Cook bacon

(I recommend doing this first to save time) I used 6 pieces of bacon to get enough for each person and shredded it once the strips were cooked. Just pull it apart in little pieces with your hands.

Peppers

I used red, yellow, and orange peppers by cutting them into small pieces.

Once those two parts were completed, the bacon, cheese, and peppers were dumped into the bowl and mixed with the eggs.

Afterwards, the mix was poured into the cupcake molds making sure that there was enough in each mold. There was nothing left over in the bowl so as stated above, 1 egg per person is perfect for this.

Once this is done, the next step is simple: Bake!

Image

Image

Let it bake for about 13 to 16 minutes. To be extra sure that they are done, just use a knife and insert into center of cupcake. If the knife comes out clean they are ready!

Image

The recipe I had tried recommended Siracha sauce to pair with the cupcakes and I just so happened to have some at home. I liked it!

There you have it! Simple and deliciously creative Breakfast Cupcakes! If you have kids at home, they’ll love this fun twist on a traditional American breakfast. You don’t need to have children to enjoy these yourself though!

As always,

oxoxo ❤

 

GAME ALERT: BLOODMASQUE

Hello, all!

Little by little, I’ll be adding more content here so if you already follow me, THANK YOU and please continue to do so as there will be more to read that hopefully interests you as time goes on. ❤

Alright, so being that I’ve been an avid gamer for about as long as I can remember. (My mom even made me play games that were educational yet still fun on the PC as as a kid so you can see where my love for it stems from; those games actually worked too!) As I’ve gotten older, I’ve strayed away from the mainstream games that appear on publications like Game Informer and Kotaku, etc. and have opted more often for indie games instead. A lot of these major games and developers make me feel like they’ve been dishing out the overall same content for years. It’s like taking a gift you’ve already given, tweaking it a bit and re-wrapping it to give away again. Same sh*t!

Before I go further, please don’t expect this to be a post with a bunch of gamer jargon and such because this is not one of those posts. I like video games and have been into them since childhood. I’ll be posting about the games I choose to play and what I like or dislike about them in my own words. If you want in-depth, lingo-riddled game posts, you probably should head over to the aforementioned sites.

Image

ANYWAY, today’s post is about a game I downloaded for my iPad called Bloodmasque. In the game, the player learns that he/she is a vampire slayer and also a half-breed; human and vampire. Since it’s made for devices such as the iPad, don’t go expecting any fancy graphics to compare to consoles like the PS4, etc. However, the graphics, game-play, and music are all very well done for the limits that they must have when creating a game on said device. The storyline has been interesting enough to keep me wanting to know what happens next and the combat style reminds me very much of Infinity Blade (which I enjoyed too). Our protagonist is on a mission to rid the world of the creatures of the night and begins so in late 19th-century Paris, France.

Image

Image

The most fun aspect of the game however, lies not in the story but in creating your character. Bloodmasque allows you to choose from pre-made character parts but also gives players the ability to BE in the game. This is achieved in the beginning in the “creation” process where players are asked to take three pictures of themselves expressing three different emotions: Casual, Pleased, and Angry. Afterwards, one can continue choosing face shape, skin color, and other options that are the norm for games that allow you to create your character.

Image

As I hope you’ve already gotten the hint of, the game isn’t something anyone should except too much from and the biggest kicker to me is watching myself battle within the game and appear in cut-scenes in which my facial expressions will change when necessary between the three pictures I chose. I’ve read some reviews about the game in addition to playing it and have read how some people take it a step further and use a kitten’s face or even their butt for the option of using your face within the game. I haven’t encountered any other players doing this just yet, but I’m sure it looks hilarious when seen.

I’ll probably play this until I get bored as the game does seem like some parts of it can become repetitious so I hope the storyline plays out well.

Here is the best part of this post. Screen shots of myself in the game. XD:

Am I the only one who finds this hilarious?

Probably.

Oh well, at least it has made for a good post!

If you find yourself mildly interested in downloading the app, know that it’s available for FREE for the rest of this week as it has been free for about 1 week now due to their celebration over hitting 500,000 downloads.

That’s a lot of downloads for a game that can easily be classified as cheesy by many. They’ve gotta be doing something right though!

Get yours at the app store!

Until! xoxo

ASHANTI PERFORMS AT BBKINGS IN NYC!

I had SUCH a great time last night with the beau while on a date to see Ashanti perform at BBKings in NYC.

Too bad they don’t allow just anyone with a camera inside so I had to use my iPad but here are some clips for ya!

You can check out the videos on my IG page:

(I can’t embed IG videos here. #bummer)

I had never seen Ashanti perform before so this was a real treat and I must add that I was very impressed with her voice. She sounds just like the record ! The girl can sing!

I hope to enjoy more nights like this as the weather slowly gets better.

Image

Had to take a quick pic of my ExtraButter hat!

Image

My look for the day. I should of taken a pic of the full ootd but I was too busy having a good time. lol

Hopefully there will be more to come and soon!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I had a wonderful, chill New Year’s Eve experience this year. It was the first time I spent NYE in my own house in years! (Literally)

Even though I spent it at home with a small group of people, that didn’t stop me (or any of us) from taking advantage of the holiday to glam it up!

Image

Image

Dem shoes though! lol

Image

We watched the ball drop (I refuse to head to the city to do that!) and ate some amazing churrasco. (If you don’t know what it is, TRY IT.)

On New Year’s Day, I sat down to watch the newly purchased visual album by none other than Queen King Bey which was fantastic! I seriously cannot say anything bad about this project. She slayed every song and every video and I’m not even a crazed fan although I do love her. She ended 2013 with the ultimate bang and raised the bar for all artists right now!

Image

SO beautiful!

This pretty much sums up the night, how was your NYE experience?

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas loves! 🌲❄️⛄️

This year was the first time in a few years that I spent Christmas at home. I’m happy to be able to do this now and it has been wonderful. On Christmas Eve I visited family for a few and had a couple of drinks. After midnight, I headed home to keep the party going but I made a mistake. I mixed drinks and boy, was that a bad idea. On top of that, I ate after having my first two shots of the night and then had a few more of a different liquor afterwards. NOT FUN. You see, I’m not much of a drinker; so even though I didn’t get drunk and just felt tipsy at most, my stomach was another issue entirely. Yep, I’m one of those. It’s weak, I know.

Here’s my outfit on the night before Christmas:

I had plans on what I’d wear Christmas Day but because of my tummy, (I woke up and it was still hurting for most of the day) I wasn’t motivated in the least way to get dolled up. It’s a shame because the outfit would of made for a great post. I planned the look from head to toe! 😩😢

I also got some great gifts; much more than what I even expected! I really like this new perfume by Heidi Klum called “Shine that I was given. It has a soft and lovely scent. Perfect to wear during the day and even at night!

(Smells soooo good!)

Regardless of my failed attempt to dress up for the holiday and the worst alcohol induced stomach ache I’ve had in a long time, I’ve gotta say this was the best Christmas I’ve had in years. 😃

I hope your Christmas has been swell! Fa, la, la, la, laaa, la, la, la, laaa! 😉

BIRTHDAY TREATS & FRIENDS

ImageSo I come home after work and my friend is just sitting on my couch, eating noodles and watching anime like she owns the place.

Comfortable, much?

ImageI head upstairs and decide that I’m going to jump back into my workout routine. Getting back into the jist of things wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be. Actually, I enjoy working out but I wasn’t feeling all that well for the last few days.

I pulled out my ladybug yoga mat that I love so much and did some stretching. Then I watched my favorite workout videos on YouTube (I don’t know what dvd is worth buying so I stick to YouTube for now, lol) and started to pump it! XD

After the main workout I still had some energy left in me so I decided to look up some Zumba videos. Now I’m addicted!

I probably looked like this the whole time:

Not really. It was more like:

Boss status.

This is just disturbing.

Anyway, I did my thing and then I went downstairs to a nice surprise.

A friend of ours stopped by and brought belated birthday goodies!

Thanks @peepmykicks_!!

Can’t go wrong with that!

Then, another friend walks in and she plops this on the table:

How could you?

It’s safe to say, I didn’t eat any last night. Yeah, I’m proud.

BUT, that doesn’t mean tonight I won’t have a go.

Can’t wait to head home!

Oh, almost forgot. I got myself a nice little treat for my day of birth as well.

Kanye West YEEZUS Tour, Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, NYC

Just going to share a few shots taken from the night I went to see Yeezy perform.

I wish I’d have had brought my high quality camera with me but it was the first time I’d ever been to Barclays Center and so I feared it’d get confiscated (A rumor I kept hearing about the security measures being taken). I opted instead to bring a regular digital camera.

Lo and behold….

Bonita Applebum, you gotta put me on!

Pumpkin Carving!!

ImageI came home one day to find a bunch of pumpkins on the dining table. That meant it’s pumpkin carving tiiiime! A few days later, we did exactly that.
Image

I’d never carved a pumpkin before. The most I’ve done was paint them, which was still fun, but carving them was definitely a new experience that I’m glad I was there to have. It just isn’t October and definitely not Halloween if there aren’t carved pumpkins around.

ImageSomebody was trying to get in on the fun too.

ImageMmmm, looks tasty.

ImageThis was the first pumpkin and it turned out great!

ImageBy the way, the inside of a pumpkin looks kinda gross. lol

Imageewwww

Time for round two!!

ImageImageImageImageThe mouth looked like the Wu-Tang logo to me. After we drew the face on it though it looked like an orange bat. lol

Image

We got pretty hungry after all that carving and had an amaaazing dinner courtesy of the beau’s BBQ skills. Yum!

This is random but while everyone was outside I took a beautiful shot of the moon. I can’t believe my camera zoomed in so well.

ImageSo pretty. ❤

I love our pumpkins and I hope you did too, pumpkin! 😉 oxoxoxox
