Evolving Music

I read a quick article last week by Stacker titled, 50 Ways Music has Changed in the Last 50 Years. It was interesting to me what has evolved over the years that I have been alive and decided to share with you some music that I like based on some of the 50 ways. See if you can figure out which song goes to which way.

What do you think about the evolution of music?


The Bright Spot in the Desert

Vegas . . .when you say that it conjures up images of casinos, clubs and gambling. For a good reason . . .those things are aplenty in this desert town but there is a normal life that goes on off the Strip.

I was in Vegas recently for work and while I did stay on the Strip and enjoyed the entertainment of it; I was also lucky enough to have friends that took me away and offered me the enjoyment of the area in general.

Here are 5 things that I enjoy in Las Vegas. Have you spent time there? What do you enjoy?

  1. Armagosa Trail
  2. Springs Preserve
  3. Valley of Fire
  4. Hoover Dam
  5. Green Valley Ranch

A New Skill to Learn

One of my goals this year is to learn a new cooking style or to cook with an ingredient I have never used before. So this post is part one: new cooking style.

After having wonderful Dim Sum while in Vegas last week, I have decided that I want to tackle this technique head on and make it for myself at home. This is going to require me purchasing a few items for the kitchen (don’t mind if I do). Haha!

Here are 5 recipes I am hoping to use to as I work on learning this new style. What is a cooking style you have been wanting to try?


Products Galore

Am I the only person that “window shops” online? I get into Amazon for one thing and then end up taking a look around and just like Target, I end up walking away with a few more items. The good news is that I have found some things that I absolutely love which is why I need to share them with you!

What products have you found that you just love?

Before I share with you my usual 5; I wanted to share with you another great product  I have tried from Maple Holistics. If you aren’t sure who they are, take a look at this prior post of mine. Maple Holistics is a beauty and personal care company that provides natural cruelty-free products. The products are really wonderful to use. This winter my hair seemed to feel a little more rough (dry) then usual and I have been looking all over for something that could ease that without having oil directly on my hair. As with all of their shampoos, you only need the smallest amount to get the benefits. Still not convinced? . . .Read this article written about it and see if you change your mind.
