Recipe Review: Skinnytaste Lemon Chicken and Brown Rice Pilaf

I'm always on the lookout for new and easy family friendly recipes and I really hit the jackpot when I bought copies of The Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook and Skinnytaste One & Done....you can check them out on her website here (no I'm not an affiliate, calm down). I've tried a few things from the air fryer book, but hadn't really dug in to the other one so last night I tried her "Lemon Chicken and Brown Rice Pilaf" recipe. OMG. It was so tasty.

The BEST Red Lipstick I Can't Live Without

If there's one makeup item I can't live without it's a lip colour of some sort. Between tinted lip balms, lip-gloss, or a long lasting crème or matte lipstick, I'm never without something on my little pout.

My go-to brands have always been Revlon, L'Oreal and MAC so it's no surprise my favourite red is from L'Oreal. When I need a good pop of colour to stand out or break up my usual all black outfit, I tend to lean on this red beauty - #315 True Red to be exact. This lipstick is everything I could ever want in a colour: creamy, soft on my lips, and saturated colour. And I literally wear it all year long - but it's especially amazing in the Fall!

What's your go-to, "can't live without it" lip colour?
