Princess Kate wedding pics

Who doesn't love a royal wedding with all it's elegance and pageantry? I had to snap a few shots of Kate and William's wedding from my TV so I could really look at her dress, hair, makeup and nails!    Kate looked beautiful in her Sarah Burton gown. Her hair was down and pulled back on the sides. Her nails were short and a pale sheer shiny pink. She entered wearing a tiara, a Cartier 'halo' tiara made in 1936 and given to the Queen Mother and presented to the Queen by her mother on her 18th birthday. I heard she had she had 6 hairdressers, but I wonder about her makeup artist. I thought her eye liner was far too dark and heavy on the lower lash line!  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Just Married. Another thing that fascinates me about a royal wedding are the fascinators and various millinery that the Brits wear. They are fantastic with all their flowers, feathers, netting, tulle, and bows!  Here are a bunch of my favorites, beautiful

Recipe: Asian Style Brussels Sprouts

Asian Style Brussels Sprouts My younger daughter loves Brussels Sprouts. People were astonished in the produce store when they heard my little 4 year old asking if we could get Brussels sprouts for dinner! Brussels Sprouts contain the most Vitamin C of all the vegetables.  Vitamin C is necessary for collagen production in our bodies. Collagen keeps our skin firm and wrinkle free.     1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved (or use whole baby Brussels sprouts)     1/2 cup chopped onion     1/3 cup vegetable broth     1 tablespoon olive oil     1 tablespoon dark sesame oil     1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger     1 garlic clove, minced     1 tablespoon soy sauce (or gluten free soy sauce) Heat sesame and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low. Add onion, ginger and garlic to pan and saute for 3 minutes. Add broth and Brussels sprouts. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer about 10 minutes.  Add soy sauce then serve.
