One of my birthday gifts this year was Cravings by Chrissy Teigen. My mom bought it for me because she knows that I’ve been learning the ropes in the kitchen via Pinterest. I’ve never had a cookbook before so this is my very first one. And I’m also a big fan of Chrissy Teigen. I’m super duper excited to try these recipes, many of which I have never even thought about making before. Although I love my recipes board on Pinterest, having an actual book with pages and pictures that I can look at is going to be awesome. I won’t have to scroll and screenshot images on my phone or worry about my touching my phone with food on my fingers. Eventually I’ll make my own cookbook binder with all of my favorite Pinterest recipes but I haven’t had the time to invest in that right now. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to post a link to the recipes like I usually do because that could get me in trouble but I can post a link to purchase the book. If you like Chrissy Teigen’s personality and sense of humor and you also like to cook, I would suggest buying this for yourself. Her write-ups are funny and hopefully the recipes are delicious too. I guess I’ll find out soon enough…
This years Grammy awards show was the WORST Grammy awards show I have ever seen. I’ve been watching the Grammys for as long as I can remember. It was and still is a very big event in my household. We watch the red carpet and the ceremony one night. And the next night we watch Fashion Police as a recap. When I was really young, I used to just watch the red carpet with my mom and then go to bed. After Monday’s show, I might just go back to doing that.
The show aired on a Monday.
The Grammys like most other award shows that air on ABC, NBC & CBS, always air on Sundays. But not this year. Continue reading
I’m going to see Beyoncé!
On Monday February 15th, I was sitting at home instead of at work because it snowed in my city. At 10:00am that morning, I was frantically refreshing the Ticketmaster app that I have on my phone. By the way, I don’t have a computer at my apartment yet. That’s why I was using the app instead of the website. I’ll have my Macbook Pro very soon though. Anyway, I was using the BeyHive presale code that I received in my email from Beyoncé’s official website last week. But my app kept saying that there were no tickets available. Now, I know that Beyoncé can sell out a stadium in 10-20 minutes BUT it was 10:01. There was no way all the tickets were gone in one minute. So I opened my Twitter app to see if anyone was in Ticketmaster’s mentions complaining about an issue. And of course… hundreds of people were saying that the BeyHive presale code was not working. A few minutes later, I saw that someone that I follow on Twitter was able to get tickets to another show that had gone on sale that same day. So I knew that there had to be a way for me to get my tickets. I checked Ticketmaster’s mentions again and I saw someone say that they had heard the new BeyHive presale code was… “Beyonce” (without the accent mark). So I tried that… AND IT WORKED.
When I wasn’t able to go to the On The Run tour with Beyoncé and Jay Z, I was crushed. And I vowed to myself (and my parents and my then-boyfriend/now-fiance) that I would never miss a Beyoncé tour again. So I started a Beyoncé emergency fund and I actually didn’t have to use it this time around but if I ever need to, I’ve got my coins ready.
Hey Beyoncé girl, see you on May 3rd!
PS. I got FLOOR SEATS! 🙂
