***Learn how to curl your hair so that it lasts all day! Even works for beginners!*** Wishing you knew an easy, fast way to curl your hair that looks awesome and stays all day? This hair tutorial is for you! Even beginners can do this! You just need an inexpensive curling iron (around 1 inch diameter) and hair spray (optional). This video is all about the technique of curling your hair from the TOP rather than the bottom. It's such a simple idea, but it's one that will really change how easy it is for you to curl your hair and make it STAY! ***This technique can also be modified to create different looks such as soft waves, tighter curls, etc. Just vary the barrel size, amount of hair in each curl, the amount of time you hold the curl, or how much hair you leave out at the bottom. Experiment to find the perfect look for you!*** Let me know in the comments what you think, and I'll do my best to answer any questions you have. And don't forget to subscribe to my channel! I'll be posting more videos soon. Twitter: katyallen Instagram: katyallen79 Tumblr: katyallen79

Easy, delicious pear and arugula salad with homemade dressing! Perfect for a healthy meal at home, a dinner party or a pot luck! Don't like pears or arugula? Use this amazing dressing with any salad! Ingredients: 5 oz lettuce (typically one container) 1 or 2 pears (or other fruit such as apples) 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I like honey roasted pecans) 1 tbsp olive oil 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 tbsp raw sugar 1/8 - 1/4 tsp sea salt Baked chicken: Place chicken breast cutlets in a baking dish Add a very small amount of water to the bottom of the dish Sprinkle spice rub over chicken (I add quite a bit) Cover dish with oven-safe lid or with foil Bake on 375 for about 30 minutes (my oven cooks pretty quickly, but some ovens may require additional time. Just cut into a piece of chicken to check before serving.)

Homemade popsicles are a summer staple, but why not change it up and try making sorbet instead? It's as easy as chop, freeze and blend. Ingredients: 5 cups watermelon - frozen 1.5 cups strawberries - frozen 3/4 cup sugar (or more if needed) 1/2 cup water 2 tbsp lemon juice Having trouble getting the right consistency? Freeze it, let it thaw into a slush and then blend again with some additional sugar. Keep in mind, this isn't going to be quite the same as store-bought sorbet, but it IS easy and fun!
