Food Blog Love

I have developed an unhealthy/fattening obsession with food blogs! I love looking at the bright photos and the food...mmmmmmm. Definitely not good for anyone considering cutting back on their food intake. All those delicious images make me want to hit the grocery store and spend the next few hours making a feast.

A website worthy of note is it seriously is amazing. Endless pages of food pornography and so many links to food blogs.

South St Burger

Update: As a Bzzagent, I was sent several coupons to test the products and share with individuals. So I went and ordered one of their burger combos and it was good. Albeit, I was starving so I woofed the thing down like a crazed woman. The burgers are big too! My only qualms is that the burger patty was a bit too dry for my liking. Perks of eating there are that their meat are preservative free, no antibiotics, locally grown? and the crazy variety of toppings (25 varieties)! They have wasabi mayo and cajun onions. It took me forever to decide what I wanted on my burger and by the time I was done it was bursting. I love that they serve New York Fries with the burger and you also have the option of making your fries into a poutine. My qualms about this place is that it's super pricey. One combo with cheese came up to about $12.00 pretty pricey for a fast food operation. My boyfriend enjoyed his thoroughly and the staff were very nice. Can't beat good customer service!

My family wants to give this place a go and since I still have a few of those coupons left, we'll be checking it out together. I'll try to take some pics!

Sun's Out!

well, it was on Monday but not so much today or the remainder of the week. I typically wear my spf45 facial lotion but on days where its really hot (re:last Thursday during my rollerblading session!) I like to apply sunscreen first then a moisturizer. I bought the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen SPF 60 (approx. $12.00) for those days when I will be spending more time outdoors. It's actually quite thick and takes a while to absorb into the skin. The consistency is slightly thick and there is no scent. I have not experienced any negative skin reactions to the product (combo skin) either. It is a poor base for makeup (I wear mineral makeup) so it makes the makeup look smeary - not good! When wearing this, I avoid wearing makeup, maybe just a little under eye concealer and that's it.

Back of the bottle:

Oil free abd PABA free, non-greasy feel
Waterproof, sweat proof
Gentle enough for sensitive skin
Fragrance free
Non comedogenic

*broad spectrum UVA/UVB

Overall, it sounds like a pretty sunscreen and it actually is. I'd say its only downfall would be that it makes for a poor base to apply makeup over! Perfect beach sunscreen though.

3 Stars!
