• Spiced Mixed Nuts- Perfect for any Party

    I think these spiced mixed nuts are the perfect accompaniment to a great cocktail.  That’s why I love to make them when I have company over, have a cocktail party or just to enjoy while having “cocktail hour” on the patio with my husband.  These are always a hit at every party.  The combination of sweet, savory and spicy really wows the pallet.  This recipe can easily be tweaked by using your favorite nuts rather than the ones I uses (which are my favs).  If you make this for your friends they will most certainly love it, so you should probably make a lot! Please check out my latest YouTube video to learn some additional tips and tricks on how I make the recipe.  You’ll be able to check out my husband’s amazing pan flipping skills too.   Print Spiced Mixed Nuts Author Claire Bahn Ingredients 2 cup mixed nuts: cashews… Read More

  • Winery Picnic Tips and My Favorite Essentials

    If you’ve seen my Instagram, you know that I love going wine tasting and I love a good winery picnic.  If you’ve ever been wine tasting, you probably noticed the strange phenomenon that wineries rarely have food.  If they do have food, they usually don’t have much variety and it won’t be gluten free (I’m gluten intolerant).  Therefore, I’m in the habit of packing a winery picnic when we go wine tasting.  I’ve packed quite a few at this point, so I know what works and what doesn’t, so I’m pretty much an expert on how to pack a winery picnic. Here are my Winery Picnic Essentials: I decided that instead of buying a picnic table cover that I would simply re-purpose one of my Turkish beach towels. It can be very windy on a vineyard, so these colorful cloth napkins come in very handy. I love these great melamine salad… Read More

  • Dry Skin Remedies- The Top 4 I Swear By

    Today I am going to talk about my dry skin remedies and things that I love using to make sure that my skin doesn’t dry out.  I usually have oily skin, but my skin tends to get pretty dry in the winter.  Now I understand that LA does not get as cold as most of the rest the country, but our humidity level is extremely low.   I therefore are usually have to battle dry skin to some degree all the time.  These are the Dry Skin Remedies that work for me. For the Face I have oily skin, so I always make sure that the items I choose are non-comedogenic.  It can often be a hard balance to find Dry Skin Remedies for the face that are moisturizing enough without the use of heavy oils.  These two below do just that.

  • What to Wear on Valentine’s Day

    First I just want to say that I’m sorry that I’ve been a MIA lately. If you saw my last post you know that my other business, Online Profile Pros, has been quite crazy lately and that has been taking up most of my time.  Recently I was thinking about what to wear on Valentine’s Day and then I thought you might be having the same conundrum. So, I made a list of my top picks, some you can rent and some you can buy.  As you may know, I’m a big fan of renting for special occasions, that way I can look festive, but I don’t have to buy something just for that one occasion.  I even did a Rent the Runway Review, if you’re on the fence about renting.  If you’re not a fan of renting, I’ve found some great items for you too, many under $100, as well… Read More

  • Easy At Home Teeth Whitening for the Coffee Lover PLUS Giveaway

    This week I’m doing a review of the Smile Brilliant at home Teeth Whitening system.  They sent me a free trial of their product to check out and review. I’ll admit that I was originally hesitant because if you’re like me, tooth sensitivity is the one thing I absolutely dread when whitening my teeth. I’ve had some whitening procedures in the past, including lasers at the dentist office, but it was either ineffective or my teeth were so sensitive it hurt to eat and drink for days….good for the diet but nobody wants to be in pain for days with sensitive teeth. Fortunately, Smile Brilliant has it all figured out, each kit comes complete with a proprietary whitening agent and a very effective desensitizing gel for post whitening sensitivity. At first I was worried that I would not be able to fit the whitening into my busy schedule. Smile Brilliant recommends… Read More
