Grey faux leather jacket

I've had my eye on a grey leather jacket for maybe 6 months. However, all the ones I find are over $250. Plus, living in Southern California it's not like I need it for the cold weather, or a necessity, it's more of a fashion accessory.

I'm so lucky mark just came out with a faux leather jacket for just $75!!!! Plus, you get free shipping since the purchase is over $30. The really cool thing with the mark jacket is that it has different material on the back. Making the mark jacket very light and usable all year round in so. Cali.

There is a similar jacket on asos website going for $240. Check out the site: : Click here to view the asos jacket >

I have included a pic of both jackets for your review.

Mushroom rice soup

I decided to make the mushroom and farro soup found on smitten kitchen website. However i had to modify the recipe since I used up all the farro on a salad last night. Clearly, I thought I had a full/new bag of in my cubby when I began this recipe, Ugh!!!

When I was done it was soooooooooo delicious eventhough I put long grain white rice in it instead of farro and instead of just onion and carrots I used onion, carrots and 3/4 cups celery. Everything else is pretty much like the recipe found on:

Plus, it's healthy, filling and with lots of texture. I think next time I will even add Half a pound of sliced sirloin steak to the pot. That would make it even heartier. I give the smitten kitchen soup 5 out of 5 stars, 10 out of 10 points, 2 thumbs up.

Below is a pic of the farro salad I made last night, I had that with salmon slice. Plus, also pic of the mushroom rice soup which was beyond delicious.

My Recipe to farro/tabulleh salad:

Cook 1/2 cup dry farro to directions
(basically cook in quart of boiling water for 15 minutes, drain, set aside to COOL off, it will make about 1 cup cooked farro)

1 large cucumber diced
2 Romano tomatoes diced
3 green onions sliced
1/4 cup red onion (or just add mire green onion, I like using both for different flavors each has)
1/4- 1/2 cup minced parsley (to make more tabulleh flavored add more parsley not just 1/4 cup)

Lemon juice-1 lemon
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cumin (a pinch)
1/8 teaspoon oregano (a pinch)
1/4 teaspoon dry mint
1 minced fresh garlic or pinch garlic salt
Pinch of salt and pepper

1. Cook the farro and set aside to cool off
2. Dice all the veggies and mix into the farro on large salad bowl
3. Mix the dressing separately then add to the salad bowl
4. Let it sit for 20 minutes to overnight before serving

This will serve 4.
Prep time 25 minutes

Now for mark: mark will be coming out with 16 shades of make up: mark powder buff and min-a-real foundation make up beginning March 2012!!! I'm so excited. If you'd like to see other things on my site see my mark website.

Eating healthy Vs. Eating with foods u can purchase in Sun. Paper

I dont know about most of you, but I honestly try to eat as healthy as possible 90-95% of the time. The other 5-10% I allow myself to eat junk, crap stuff that really isn't good for me but my taste budspalettete, stomach seems to crave.

My biggest problems with healthy eating is finding veggies and foods that are reasonably priced. They tend to be more expensive than unhealthy choices and fresh produce like veggies, salad ingredients, or healthy meats rarely have a coupon or discount price.

Here are some ideas to help you save a few bucks while purchasing cheeper staples for your healthy menu ingredients.

1. find an ETHNIC MARKET near you. They usually have fresh veggies and meats cheaper than reg grocery stores. And this works no matter what ethnicity u choose.
I've been to
* Vietnamese market in little saigon, I can buy fresh fish for 40-60% when compared to local chains. And noodles, soy sauce and other asian staples are beyond cheap as well.
* Mexican markets, in Santa Ana, e. Los angeles and westmister (el ranchito) All fresh veggies, meats and pre made foods are like 30-60% off. Especially cilantro, tomatoes, avocados, queso fresco and canned salsas/soups/condiments.
* Greek market, only been to one in Anaheim and it's the same experience there as well. I was able to get fresh olives, feta, meat already seasoned to make kabobs, pita bread, fresh parsley for again up to 60% cheaper than the chain grocery store.
* Cambodian market in long beach. This was the best experience, I bought beyond cheap staples for soups, fresh veggies, fish chips, soy sauce, fish sauce, cocunut water, coconut milk. Again same discounts.
2. Go.
3. Be prepared to find many items youve never seen. Don't be scared most of the labels will have some English. Plus, from my experience the employees are fluent enough in English to guide you to what you want. Remember these stores are catered and intended for newer American immigrants who still eat many of their cultures food,and this is a PLUS for your pocket!!!

So, I highly recommend those type of markets to help you eat healthier food without having to wait for the Sunday paper coupons. MOST of the Sun paper coupons are just huge brand name, pre-package, loaded with salt and preservatives type of food anyway. Plus, most are not freshly made products.

My challenge today, to go to the ethnic market and take $20-$25 for fresh produce.

I Will post a pic and description of my purchase later.

Girl with a dragon tattoo

So if you read the books and watched the movie you probably either love or hate the jewelry worn by Lisbeth Salander played by Rooney Mara.

Personally, I like changing my look one day to the next and when I feel in dark gothic type the ring she wears are phenomenal for that.

I especially like the ring that looks like a line on your knuckes and it can be found for $264 on bijules nyc website.
Honestly, I personally can't afford that,but if you can visit the site.

I will be getting a ring similar in look but for only $16, it's called the mark walk the line ring. It's not exactly the same, but it will satisfy my jewelry need since it does the same thing: rest on your knuckles as a line.

Goth skull ring

So I love skull rings and if you do too I have two great suggestions based on your budget. Both look very similar and I'm sure you're outfit will be complete with either one just the same.

One is by designer Alexander McQueen iris and skull ring, its absolutely awesome. The two skulls are facing eachother and it's $225, you can see the item on zappos: I have also provided a pic below.

Then there is a mark double skull ring which is very similar to the McQueen except not the price tag. The mark describes it as a goth-meets-glam design, perfect for the hardcore fashionistas, burnished brass with clear glass beads. Mark is selling it for $16 beginning 1-17-2012. If you'd like to have one sooner paypal the $16 to Or u can wait to purchase it later on my website : Click here to purchase your mark products at >

I have included below pic of the mark double skull ring and at that price you can multi stack it and wear three mark rings like the mark model and still only pay $48 (3 at $16 each).
