Happy Thanksgiving!

I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving already.  This year literally flew in the blink of an eye.  Here are a few things I’m thankful for:

  1. My health because without this you literally wouldn’t have anything
  2. My big crazy family whom I miss (most of them are in New York)
  3. Coffee (I’m serious like how else would I function some days)
  4. My girls! Always great to vent to and give great advice.  Most of them live far away but distance doesn’t change our cray relationship
  5. My husband.  He’s always pushing me to do my best and he accepts my different personalities.  LMAO

What are you most thankful for?

Holiday Wish List 2018

Do you guys ever visit a website, search items and add them to your cart?

Or do you browse clothing sites to look at cute outfits because it makes you feel happy? Girl, make a wish list and work towards buying.  Below are a list of goodies that I’ll actually purchase or dream about.

Vitamix Blender Professional series 750

First on my list! My friends know how much I love to entertain and have them try my delicious recipes, so this will become a staple item in my kitchen.  The warranty and the quality of this blender is amazing.  Most of Vitamix’s blenders come with a 5-7 year warranty.  The hard part will be deciding on which one to buy, but I have my eye on the Vitamix Professional series 750. Price: $599.95

Date Night Sushi: Koi Restaurant

Best sushi in New York

Looking for a delicious sushi restaurant in New York?

The baby daddy and I spent our anniversary in NYC where we went to Koi.  The restaurant may be a little hard to find since it’s located inside the Bryant Park Hotel and there is no actual sign outside of the building.  As usual, we were running late but the hostess was super nice and still seated us (it wasn’t packed since it was a Monday night)

We started off with the Koi crispy rice topped with spicy tuna. The rice cake wasn’t Continue reading

Salma’s Costume Party

Oct 31, 2018

Time frame (so your that one friend doesn’t coming knocking at midnight)

Text to R.S.V.P

The invitation should be exciting and make people want to come to your party.  It’s the first item that sets the tone of your party so make it fun!


host halloween party budget friendly invite


-Fun Drinks like mixing coconut water and fruit punch with fresh lemons inside and plastic spiders or you can put water in gloves and  freeze the gloves so the the ice hands can be used in your punch bowl

-Tortilla chips and salsa or guacamole.  Have a hand sticking out of the salsa bowl

-Veggie platters with hummus

-Frozen Pizza or call up a delivery pizza spot

-Cupcakes (Try to pick a halloween theme which should be easy to find in the month October)

-Buy vanilla wafers and add cream cheese in the middle with strawberry jelly in the center of the cream cheese so it looks like a bloody band aid.  Also have an empty band aid box on the tray of your wafers.

-Put candy in a witch hat and leave it by the counter or table


Go to the dollar store/Dollar Tree or party city if you can spend the big bucks 🤣

Here is a list of optional items to buy: Continue reading
