I hate body hair,and I'm not on the lasik hair removal bandwagon so I am a fan of waxing.I'm a frugal stylista, who hates when I have to pay someone over 100 dollars to wax my legs,arms,e.t.c,and i am always looking for ways to do things myself and receive the same results as from professionals.This product comes very close!I purchased Veet hair removal strips cold turkey without reading any reviews after passing them in Target too many times.I bought the face strips and the legs and body strips.My review on the face strips aren't as great as the legs and body,but I will  include pictures of the contents in the package and the pros and cons of each to make it more clear and precise below.I hope this helps someone,and don't forget to comment and let me know any other hair removal products that you use,or if you have or currently use this one.Thank you so much for stopping by and stay fabulous!

Leg and Body wax strip,face strip,Finishing wipes for removing residue
Legs and Body Pros 
1Great instructions(I didn't have to youtube to figure them out)
2.Generous size wax strips, they look similar to the muslin sheets at the salon
3.Sensitive skin version
4.They remove allot of hair when used correctly(I learned through trial and error)
5.Not too painful,but I have a high tolerance for waxing 
6.Good amount of wax on strips 
7.Great amount in box mine included 40 full size strips and 6 wipes
8.The wipes really come in handy and go a long way I usually need one per removal session,but baby oil works as well.
9.The smell is tolerable(very rare) in my opinion
10.My self tanner worked great right after use of this
11.Experienced no irritation
12.Great for arms!.
1.They can easily get messy if you accidently touch the wax(which will happen)when waxing legs it gets greasy, and a little frustrating which does get better after second use.
2.I wouldn't recommend for someone with allot of hair on legs you would need too many strips and it would get really messy and sticky. 
3.If you don't get a good rhythm going as far as removing too slow it will make it hard to go back and fox because it gets sticky
My rating on this is 8/10
Face Pros
1.No irritation whatsoever
2.Nice sized strips for precision
3.Great for bikini line touch ups
4.Made with essential oils
Face Cons
1.Too much product for face removal
2.Difficult to remove facial hair may be because I'm left handed
3.Didn't remove facial hair in some places after waxing
My rating on this is 6/10 because I don't like much for face,but it can be improvised for other small hair removal areas.

Fashionista Foodie:J'lala Chicken Parmesan

The one thing I love just as much as fashion is food!!I'm such a foodie it's ridiculous,and I love to cook.I made my BF and myself our favorite chicken Parmesan and it always does the job,and he changed his mind about going to the game which proves it's potency!I love looking up recipes and sharing them so its something I want to incorporate on my blog.I hope you try it and love it!Please comment if you try it and let me know how it comes out !Thank you so much for stopping by!
Note:Ingredients can all be altered to suit preference and diet

What you need

One package of chicken breast or tenderloins(I prefer tenderloins so I don't have to use a meat beater like with large chicken breast,but use whatever you prefer) .
Ragu Parmesan and Romano Tomato sauce or whatever you like 
Garlic Powder,Basil,salt,black pepper,extra virgin olive oil,bread crumbs,mozzarella,2eggs,
chili pepper flakes,and shredded Parmesan cheese(not pictured) and spaghetti
(The usually prefer fresh ingredients but I was in a little of a rush)
Preheat oven to 350 and cook spaghetti noodles

1.Season chicken with only a dash of salt,black pepper and garlic powder and mix
2.In one bowl crack two eggs
3.In another bowl add  two cups of breadcrumbs and two handfuls of Parmesan cheese(I don't really measure,but two cups is enough)

4.Dredge each side of chicken in egg mixture then breadcrumb mixture,and place on plate.Your results should look like below pic or close to it.

At this point on medium heat I take a  jar of my sauce and pour in half  in a sauce pan like below pic, and add two shakes of basil, chili pepper flakes,and a dash of garlic powder to give it a  fresh made taste.Then set aside.
 5. On medium heat cover the complete bottom of a large skillet  with olive oil and add chicken.  Cook chicken about 4 minutes on each side (adjust if necessary chicken should be cooked,but not overdone)
It should end up looking like below or similar
6..In empty baking dish  take a spoon and cover the bottom of the  dish with prepared sauce.
7.Add chicken to pan,then cover with sauce using more or less according to preference and diet
8.Sprinkle basil on top and cover with mozzarella,and sprinkle with a little Parmesan like below pic
9.Bake at 350 degrees for ten minutes and Enjoy! Finished result below!
