Italian Healthy Recipes: Tomatoes and Endive Risotto

Hello guys! One of my passions is cooking and I wanted to share with some recipes I made myself. This is a dish I invented because I didn't have much stuff at home and this is what I made with the products I had... and let me tell you, It came out pretty delicious! It's also a really heathy recipe, great for those of you who are on a diet like me.

- 100 gr or 3,5 oz of rice per person
- 5 little pachino tomatoes per person
- Endive salad (you can use as much as you want, but I recommend not too much)
- Garlic
- Pepper
- Salt
- White wine
- Water
- Olive Oil

How to:

In a pan put 2 spoon of olive oil, then cut the garlic and place it into the pan, let it fry for a bit. Take your rice, put it into the pan and mix it with the oil and the garlic. Add water covering up the rice and wait until the rice soaks up the water. Cut the pachino tomatoes in half, then put them into the pan with the rice and mix them. Add a little bit of white wine, add the endive salad to the mix and salt and pepper.
Taste a little to see if it's ready. It usually takes up to 25 minutes for the whole process (it depens on your stove).

It's delicious, let me know if you try it.

Mac Cosmetics: Quite Cute Collection Haul - Lipsticks and Blush Swatches

Hello guys! Yesterday I went to Mac and I bought some products from the Quite Cute Collection. I was very excited about it, because it's a very cool toned collection and I have a pink undertone, so it's perfect for me. I bought all the lipsticks because the colors are just amazing and so pigmented. The blushes were ok, at first I wanted them all, but when I swatched them in the store, one wasn't pigmented at all, It didn't show up on my fair fair skintone (Miss Behave) and the other one (Giggly) was a copy of another limited edition mineralize blush I have (Hang Loose from the In the Groove collection), so I didn't pick them up, I got just Sakura.

Here's what I got:
- Quite Cute Lipstick: Pale lavander Creamsheen finish 17.50€ in EU.
- Candy Yum Yum Lipstick: Bright Neon Fuschia Matte Finish (this is my favourite! It's crazy pigmented and bright) 17.50€
- Playing Koi Lipstick: Pale Peachy Pink Satin Finish 17.50€
- Play Time Lipstick: Mid tone Violet Creamsheen Finish (lighter than the Style Curve from the Stylishly Yours Collection, less fuschia more purple) 17.50€
- Sakura Mineralize Blush: (light lavander with a burgandy fuschia heart) 23€.

I hope you liked the haul and the swatches.

See you soon

Spring 2011 Nail Polishes: Essence New Nail Polish in n°74 Fall For Me

Hello guys! So this is one of the items I bought recently from the Essence new spring line. It is a gorgeous baby blue pastel nail polish. As you can see in the photo, it's pretty opaque, infact that was just one coat. It goes on easy and the applicator fits perfectly into the nails. Pastel colors are must haves for spring and summer 2011 and a baby blue color is what you need. The price is so cheap, 1.99€ in Europe and I think it's even cheaper in US.

I hope you liked it.
