Well it’s been awhile followers but as we all know life can get in the way of life. I’m currently grieving the death of my father. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer 10 years ago. We had a scare 3 years ago that it had spread to the bone but was moving slow. In January the doctors had told him that it spread more and it was moving extremely fast. They gave him 3-6 months. 9 if he as lucky. However in under 3 months, my 3 siblings and I watched him decline and on April 12th he left us. Anyone who had lost a parent knows this feeling. My father and I were very close. As a child we spent a lot of time together and of course grew apart during the rebellious teenage years but grew right back together and there we stayed. It’s a huge change that only will get easier with time I guess. How do you go from talking to someone multiple times a day for years and seeing them a few times a week for years? I don’t think there’s ever enough time to spend with someone. I do think that the spirit world is real and he is always around. He shows me in his own ways all the time since his departure. I feel it and see it. Awareness is an amazing thing and if you pay attention you’ll witness small miracles all the time. As always thank you for following and keeping up with #whatstunningsays.
I am not a huge salmon fan. However I’ve been experimenting because of the nutritional value of fish. Below is my Parmesan Crispy Salmon Recipe.
My side was by Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh Protein Blends Italian Style.
5 servings of Salmon
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/3 cup olive oil
3 garlic gloves chopped
Handful of fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lemon halved
Preheat oven to 400. Rinse and arrange salmon on a foil lined baking sheet. Put Parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic and parsley in a bowl. Mix and add oil. Press all over top of the salmon. Sprinkle salt and pepper and squeeze half the lemon. Spray with spray oil to get that crispy crust and bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy.
I’m so into this new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color by Rimmel London in Blush. It stays on all day and hardly fades. It also doesn’t dry out your lips. However I do always recommend exfoliating before you apply any matte finish lip. Again another great target purchase, although you can definitely find this and more of the brand at any local drug store. If you ever try any of my beauty recommendations don’t hesitate to comment and tell me what you like or don’t like.

Who doesn’t love Target?! I blew some serious coin on clothes for upcoming season and I’m obsessed with Target’s line called a.new.day. From blazers to blouses to dresses to pants, they have it all. Always a good fit in tons of colors to fit each woman’s style. Definitley worth checking out! Happy shopping!
I love creating in the kitchen whether its food or homemade skin care. Over the weekend I had some fun experimenting with the ingredients for a Turmeric Face Mask.
Turmeric Face Mask
1 table spoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon turmeric
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 squeezed lemon
Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Apply heavy to skin. Leave on for 15 minutes. Your skin will turn a tint of yellow so afterwards give your face a light wash with your cleanser and apply your face and eye cream as usual.
Your skin will feel totally smooth and fresh.
Above is my amazing Hungarian Mushroom Soup. Being that I have Hungarian blood running through my veins I thought it was perfect to share. This cozy soup came in extra handy for lunch today being that it was snowing here in New Jersey. Below I hand wrote the full recipe. If you try making this or any of my other dishes please comment.

Our 9 year old Jack Russell Sasha is the absolute best. She has never gave me any feeling that she would snap on Our 14 month old Jameson. However she has her corks as all dogs do. I had purchased in he past the Our K-9 Bark Collar when I was pregnant to control her barking. It worked to a degree. Now the issue has become that she has a problem with certain toys that Jameson plays with. I chose to purchase the Altman Dog Training Collar that comes with a remote. Day 1 and it has her shook. It has 3 options of beeping, vibrating and shocking. I will only use the shock option as a last resort. The vibration is doing the job as of right now. Every time she goes after a toy I hit the button and she bails. I have confidence that being consistent we can nip this behavior problem in the butt.
