Update! Social Media, New Blog and More…

Hello and Salaams once again!

If you don’t follow me on social media then you probably don’t know about this new blog that I made. It’s called Cynn Badd Blogz  and I plan on making posts on there as well. I’m really new to that one but it’s linked to my YouTube channel and I want to keep it going.

You can still come on here and read my posts about whatever it is that I plan on posting about.

If you want to keep up, you can follow me on my Instagram, YouTube, Facebookand Snapchat (cynnbadd30). I normally post on there most often.

I will try to keep both blogs different with different schedule and subject so that it doesn’t get boring.

Make sure to follow and like to stay in touch!

Until next time! ^_^

 

Happy Holidays!

Hello and Salaams to you all! I wanted to say very quickly that I hope that you all have a very safe and very happy holiday(s), whatever it is that you celebrate. I’ll be taking a break from the net for a while but will be back with you some time next year (January or February some time) with more ideas, more videos, more makeup and fashion trends, more DIY’s and other things to share with you who are I interested.

Be safe, be happy and be blessed! 😊

Dollar Tree Finds! ^_^

Hey! What’s good?

Today I have for you some great finds from the Dollar Tree (in case you didn’t read the title). Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Uh, the Dollar Tree?! Everything there is crap!”, and you might be right but only about some things. A lot of things are worth buying especially for that one dollar price. A few days ago I was thinking of decorating our kitchen with leaves and pumpkins of some sort, since it’s fall and all of that. I had the chance to get over to the Dollar Tree to take a look at what they had for decor. As usual, they always have a ridiculous amount of items to sort though but I was able to come up with these.

Just a few fall items that I got from our local Dollar Tree

It looks like a big ‘ol mess jumbled up on the table like that but it’s fairly easy to sort out. While there I found some refrigerator magnets, fake leaves and leaf vines, candles, red glitter leaf center piece and other stuff that I probably didn’t need to buy. 🙂 Here are some more pictures of the other things that I managed to find there.

Here are the Dollar Tree goodies!

Umm, I'm not so sure about these ones. I had gotten some in my Boxy Charm box this month and figured I'd try these ones out since I liked the other ones to much...Yeah, not all nail wraps are made the same. These are basically stickers for your nails. But I guess that I can find some kind of use for them.

This is a powder for your brows (duh). Since I went pan on my E.L.F. Cosmetics brow kit, I thought this might be a good replacement. Let's hope so!

Now that is out of the way, let’s get to the decor! It’s not something too fancy but enough to make the kitchen look and feel more like the fall season. After placing the table cover I taped up some leaves on the cabinets and walls to make it look more…festive. I placed a couple candles on the both sides of the red glitter leaf center piece with a leaf wreath around them and placed a small candy dish in the shape of an acorn with mini tootsie rolls. So far, it looks pretty decent. I think that I might do the same for our living too, I dunno yet. Anyways, here are the pictures! 😀

I’m pretty happy about how it turned out. It’s nice and seasonal PLUS it only came to about 30 dollars for everything. Hope that you enjoyed this short post and keep an eye out for the Blood Moon photos! 😀

Great Falls Annual Balloon Festival

Hey Ya’ll! 🙂

FINALLY I have a chance to get on this blog thingy and make a short but very photographically filled post. Over the previous weekend I was able to get as close as I felt comfortable to the Great Falls Annual Balloon Festival that takes place here in Maine in the Lewiston/Auburn area. The place was packed with people of all ages waiting with anticipation for the hot air balloons to dot the late afternoon skies, including me.

Now, I for as long as I can remember the festival would take place every August. In my younger years I knew that when I saw those balloons in the air, the beginning of school was soon to follow. Being 29…ish and the festival being in its’s 23rd year, I now get to share the tradition of watching the hot air balloons with my own family. I think that I’m the only one who get excited for it though. Did I mention that I’m 29…ish? >_<

While we were there I was able to snap some fairly decent pictures of the balloons that were afloat, hear a live band and watch the masses go this way and that to there choice area of balloon watching. There is more than just hot air balloons in the sky though. On the other side of the bridge that I was on there was a small carnival full of rides, games and all the fried dough that your tiny little heart desires.

Anyways, enough lollygagging. Let’s get to the pictures! 😀

And lastly that one guy that is braver than many. Bless his heart.

Internet Issues?

If you haven’t noticed I haven’t been able to make a post since June. The main reason for that is because of the lack of the internet. I’m hoping to go to the library often to make more post on my blog and keep you all informed and up to date on whatever awesomeness I might run into. All I need now is your continued patience. 😆

Get To Know Me (in case you don’t already)

Hey ya’ll!

It’s been a minute, am’I right? Am’I right? Am’I…(it’s a Space Hamster thing https://www.youtube.com/user/SpaceHamsterGames).

Anyways, since I’m sitting around doing nothing I wanted to give you all a little bit of “insight” on who I’am and what I like. Considering that I usually make posts about DIY’s, makeup and food, we’re already half way there. But since we all having inquiring minds, I figured that I’d fill you in on some not-so-personal deats.

Ready? I promise, it’s not too long or too interesting either! ^_^

1. What is your middle name?

My middle name is Florence. That was the name of my great-grandmother. They called her Flossie for short.

2. Share you favorite subject in high school.

I guess it was anything that had to do with self-expression. I like to get creative with EVERYTHING and have fun doing it, so I guess that I’d have to say art and music class were the best ones in high school.
3. What is your Favorite drink?

Like alcohol? I don’t drink that kind of Kool-Aid! Usually though if I’am to pick one, I’d have to say anything with the word “juice” scribbled all over the bottle. I’m a huge juice fan.
4. What is your favorite song at the moment?

I really don’t listen to music. Mainly because it sucks! 🙂 When I was a kid my grandmother listened to a lot of the oldies but goodies type genre, so I reckin’ if I had to pick, it’d be anything from Al Green.
5. What would you (or have you) name your children?

I have one. His name is Xavier. A friend of mine thought of that one and I really liked it. It seems fitting for him.
6. Have you  participated in any sports?

Yes, in high school, which seems forever ago, I was in track and field. My cousin told my friend and I that we wouldn’t be able to make it through because it was tough. We proved her wrong, went back the next year for more and had fun doing it. Now if this question was “were you good in any sports”, I would then laugh and continue to the next question. As I’m doing right now >_<
7. What is your favorite book?

The Giving Tree
8. What is your favorite color?

Blue. Anything blue. All shades. 50 shades of blue, haha

Our cute cat!

A freakin’ 11! My childhood was the best!

13. Have you been out of the country?

I think I’ve been to Canada by accident but besides that, unfortunately no.
14. Do you speak any different languages?

I can speak English fluently (duh) since it’s my first language but I can speak a ridiculouly small amount of Arabic, Spanish and Pig Latin, haha
15. Do you have any siblings?

Yes, I have a younger brother.sam

I believe I was 4 and he was 2 in this picture.

There’s a place near where I live called Pepper And Spice. They have some really good Thai food there.

Strawberry Sweet Of Yum

Hey guys!

I made this absolutely yummy “strawberry chimichanga” today and yes, it was BOMB! I was scrolling down on pinterest to find something simple and sweet to eat and came across this.

The ingredients are simple and the chimichangas easy to make. Since I did get this from another blog, I’m going to share the site with you all and some pictures of what I did and how I made it. If you want to know how to make this delightfully delicious treat, go here http://omgchocolatedesserts.com/strawberry-cheesecake-chimichangas/ This blogger has many awesome desserts that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Now, on the the pictures! 😁

image

You'll need cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla extract, sugar, strawberries (duh 🙂 ), cinnamon, vegetable oil, toothpicks and soft tortillas shells

image

I like to add a lot of strawberries to the mix

image

Make sure to always wash your fruit off

image

Place the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and the sour cream in a bowl and blend. You can read the whole recipe in the link above.

image

Make sure to mix well

image

I used a big table spoon and added one scoop onto the tortilla. After spread the mixture around in the tortilla

image

Folding the tortilla is easy. Just pretend it's a burrito! I guess it is in a sense.

image

Your sweet should look something like this after. Place a toothpick in it so that it will stay closed when cooking. You can take it out either during or after cooking. I took mine out during so I could flip it easier

image

Now cook the sweet in the oil for about 2-3 minutes

image

In the mean time, mix the cinnamon and sugar together

image

It should look something like this after.

image

Cook until golden brown on both sides

image

Next let the sweet drip on some paper towels so that it can absorb some of the oil

image

When the sweets cool, give them a dip in the cinnamon and sugar mixture that you made and set aside

image

You can place them in a container or hand them out to your family and friends

image

I like to add some strawberries to top it off. This is one on my new favorite sweets! Try it out for yourself!
