Tips for beauty bloggers: editing product photos

Ugh, I probably shouldn’t film while in a wheat-coma in the future :P Anyhow; enjoy the video, and don’t forget that you can watch fullscreen in HD! (Highly encouraged. Highly.)

And then I made an apple-rhubarb crisp and it was tasty, too

Monday, June 20, 2011

So I really did enjoy yesterday night’s strawberry-rhubarb crumble, but then I woke up this morning with an obsessive need to use up the rhubarb from the backyard, and I don’t like my baked goods nearly as sweet as my sister does…

Anyhow. Here’s another recipe to try, and I promise, it’s deliciously tart.

(The recipe…)

So I made a strawberry-rhubarb crumble and it was tasty.

Mix in a medium bowl:

3T flour (if gluten-free: use any mild flours. Rice, brown rice, or sorghum would be my choices.)

1t cinnamon

Dash of nutmeg

1/c brown sugar, packed

1/c butter or margarine

2 1/2c oats

Trim meets tasty with Dr. Tabor’s Crispy Lace Non-Naughty Nibbles

Friday, June 17, 2011

The sun finally came out of hiding for a couple hours, so I’ve finally been able to take photographs of my most recent obsession. Nope, it’s not blush, and it’s not lipgloss or sunscreen…

The product: Dr. Tabor Crispy Lace Non-Naughty Nibbles

Why they’re awesome: I’m currently hooked on these because they’re super lightweight (which makes them easy to throw in my bag & carry around), but they’re still tasty and surprisingly filling – more filling than a basic ‘ol granola bar, even! Not to mention, they’re better for you than a lot of granola bars are: there’s about three grams of fat in each bag, two grams of fibre, and seven (!) grams of protein.

Some of the reviews I’ve read mention that they’re not very flavourful, but I actually beg to differ – I’ve tried three or four of the flavours already, and all of them have been quite flavourful, if you ask me!┬áBut, I suppose, it’s worth noting that I have like, the most bland palette ever :P

But you’re not on a diet: Yes and no. I’ve never gone on a diet to lose weight, and I don’t ever plan to (I love food way too much!) but I am on a gluten-free, caffeine-free, low-dairy, low-sugar diet. I know, it can get pretty crazy, but I’m lactose intolerant & things like gluten and sugar really aggravate my fibromyalgia.

My dietary restrictions mean that it can be pretty hard to find food that I can eat on the go, which is why these are perfect: one little bag of Non-Naughty Nibbles can tide me over from breakfast to a late lunch (think an 8 AM breakfast, then lunch around one or two), and I’m more than happy to prevent a mid-afternoon blood sugar crash by eating a bag of tasty treats! :D

Find them at: Dr. Tabor, QVC

P.S. Have you heard of Sensa? It’s a unique weight loss tool that’s designed to reduce caloric intake, making the food you’re already eating even more diet-friendly. And yep, it’s gluten-free, too ;)

Tips for beauty bloggers: Photoshopping faces

Monday, June 13, 2011

After (too long) of a delay, I’m pleased to introduce our next instalment in Tips For Beauty Bloggers. Whether you’re a fellow blogger, a photography fiend, or just another Joe the Plumber looking to clean up some photos, I hope you enjoy this post!

I hemmed and hawed over whether or not to do this as a video, and in the end, I decided it would be best to. I’ve uploaded it to Vimeo (we’re still avoiding YouTube, at least for now) in HD format, so I’d definitely encourage you to view it fullscreen - seriously, you won’t be disappointed.

(Yes, I’m still childishly amused by the wonders of the internet. Now shh; less mocking and more watching!)

If you’ve enjoyed this tutorial, please link back to this post. A project like this one takes a lot of time and effort, so I’d really appreciate it if you could refrain from embedding the video on your own sites. Thanks!
