I've been meaning to share these things for a while because I don't know what I'd do without them! I absolutely love love love them and use most of them every day.
L'oreal Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream- This stuff turns me into the pore-less wonder. It's amazing. And true to it's name, it contains magical beautifying properties. The minute after I used it for the first time, I threw away all my other foundations and primers away. You won't need them when you start using this. (HERE)
Urban Decay All Nighter Spray- This stuff magically keeps all your makeup in place FOR DAYS (If that's the way you roll.... I do not, but, if you do, this stuff is for you). I sometimes will apply my makeup around 6 a.m., spray this on, and by 9 p.m., nothing has changed. No creased eye shadow or mascara puddles, nothing!! It's a bit expensive, but entirely worth it. I payed $34 for the XL bottle (HERE) .
The Falsies Volume Express- This mascara is nuts. It truly makes you look like you're wearing false eyelashes. In a good way. I used this once and never looked back. (HERE)
Lip Smacker Strawberry- I have used this since I was 13 years old. I've tried a billion other lip products, but this is my all time favorite. And it smells amazing! (HERE)
Lip Smacker Girl Scout Cookie- A new find! And distant cousin of the strawberry lip smacker that I love so much. This one really actually smells like the shortbread girl scout cookie and is also amazing. ($1.99 Target)
I am a former chocolate fiend. Actually, I am a former sweets fiend. But I have kicked my sugar habit (with a little help from my pal, Stevia.), and as a result have lost 14 pounds and counting (I'll do a weight loss post sometime soon!). I no longer have super cravings or feel like I could commit crimes if I had to to get some chocolate :) But it makes me happy when I find recipes like this one and find out that I can still enjoy sweetness sometimes with no guilt and no pain (I'll go into that too in another post :).
So! Here is the simplest, yummiest, guilt-free Caramel Chocolate Mousse you've ever had! Enjoy!!!
3/4 Cup 2% Cottage Cheese
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/8 Tsp Caramel Flavoring
Stevia to taste
In a food processor (or in a bowl, using an immersion blender) combine all ingredients except stevia and blend until smooth. Then add a only a bit of stevia at a time until you've reached your preferred level of sweetness. Pair with your favorite chocolate friendly fruit!
** If you're not crazy about caramel you could also add a bit of vanilla in place of the caramel flavoring instead for a basic chocolate mousse. Or experiment with other flavors. I've just ordered cheesecake flavoring, eggnog flavoring and bacon flavoring from THIS website!!!!!
