Love from Diana/xmayaarix

As you already know, I really love to cook!   I read a lot of cooking blogs as well as makeup blogs,  and I kept seeing a certain tool which everyone seemed to use.

The Microplane Zester

I love citrus in my baked goods (I make a FANTASTIC lemon bar), but it's really hard to get the zest with a normal zester!  Everyone was RAVING about this Microplane zester, so I had to find it! It is also very affordable, at around $10.  Unfortunately for me, the price in Japan was $30.

I looked EVERYWHERE for this while I was in New York, but I couldn't find it!  Fortunately for me, Diana was kind enough to find it for me!

 Yay!  Now I have my very own Microplane Zester!!!

Diana included this very sweet note:
"I hope you don't mind the little extras"
Hello GENEROUS Lady!!!!  You not only were nice enough to go out of your way to find a cooking utensil for me, you even included extras!!!  And HELLO - this isn't LITTLE!!!!

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer
(from my wishlist!)

Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner
Diana says it's even better than MAC fluidline!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Blush
No swatches yet, but here's a link to a review!

THANK YOU SO MUCH DIANA!!!
I'd been thinking of how I could make Latkes and Matzo Ball Soup!!!

And last, but definitely not least...

Chocolate covered bacon!!

HAHAHAHA!!! I burst out laughing when I saw this!
When Diana and I met up in New York, we had a conversation about this!
I was so intrigued about chocolate and bacon, that I went to Whole Foods to look for it.
Unfortunately for me, I could NOT find it!
Now I realize I was looking in the wrong aisle!  I was looking in the snack food aisle, when I should have been looking in the chocolate aisle!
I'll enjoy this for sure!!!


Diana, thank you SO much for your generousity!
You can be sure I'm going to hit you back soon!


xoxo, K

    I really like Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks, you should try a color called "Dreamy" it's my favorite.
