We are so excited for Beauty and the Beast!!! I mean, I know it’s a Disney movie and all, and probably meant for kids, but I cannot wait for the live action film to open across the big screens all over the U.S. I’m gearing up (and de-stressing) with these Beauty and the Beast Coloring Pages for Adults! I say they’re for adults because I use them (I do!) and the detail in the coloring pages will keep adults focused and entertained while we wait for the film to be released.

My mom gave me a Princess House glass container for Christmas and I absolutely adore it. It’s perfect for using at home in the over, in the freezer and for pot lucks! I decided that the first dish that I’m going to share is a Mexican cactus salad. It’s absolutely delicious, refreshing and goes great on corn tortillas with some queso fresco.
I love that this cactus salad is so easy to make, and you really don’t need to measure out any ingredients either. You can make it extra spicy by adding more jalapeños, or not spicy at all by omitting them. Either way, it’ll taste delicious.
Cactus Salad (Ensalada de Nopales) Recipe
Cut cactus into bite-sized pieces
Rinse cactus under cold water
Add to sauce pan and add salt and garlic cloves
Cook under low heat until cactus turn a darker green
Remove from heat and rinse well under very cold water.
Drain and rinse again if needed. There should be no gelatinous sap.
Add chopped tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeños and onions to taste
Chill for up to 24 hours before serving if desired, or serve immediately.
This cactus salad is great alone, or topped with some queso fresco and avocado. You can serve it on a tostada or corn tortilla for an easy meal.
I have an alarm set up for 8 p.m. and when it goes off it says, “party time!!!” This is the time that the kids are sent to bed and the Hubster and I relax, drink coffee and catch up on favorite shows. We tend to watch a few different shows during the week, and lately we’ve been crushing on Timeless on NBC (although we watch it on Hulu). Have you seen it yet?
A thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, a soldier and a history professor, who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?
WATCH: Timeless Clip
The show has twists and turns, but I’m especially in love with the outfits worn by the female character, Lucy. It’s so fun to see all the different period pieces, like the cutest green suit she wore during Capone’s era (shown in the image above). Because the show takes place during different times in history, we get to see a variation of outfits worn by women, and hairstyles to match. At the same time, we experience defining moments in history like Lincoln’s assassination, the capture of Benedict Arnold and the moon landing. Timeless is also rated PG, so sometimes I’ll leave it playing in the background when the kids are home from school knowing that it’s safe for them to watch.
The cute outfits, settings and cast are just a few reasons to tune into the show. I invite you watch the show live on Mondays on NBC (and catch up on old episodes via Hulu). The season finale airs on February 20th, so you have just a few days to view the last 15 episodes. Maybe make it a binge-watch this weekend? Enjoy! Let me know how you like it.
Watch the season finale of Timeless LIVE this Monday 2/20 at 10/9c on NBC!

Did you catch the 2017 Grammys? My favorite part was the Prince tribute. Much love for the amazing artist. Also loved checking out the outfits and hairstyles of the females – they looked gorgeous!!! Did you also happen to see Demi Lovato? That girl look good… and I just got the scoop on how she her hair was styled. Best of all? It was styled with products you can find at the drugstore! For tonight’s 59th Annual Grammy Awards, Demi Lovato’s hair made a sultry statement. See how it was done…
Inspiration: Clyde was inspired by Demi’s sexy crocheted Julien McDonald gown to create long, loose mermaid waves
Get the look: Demi Lovato at 2017 Grammys
To start, apply a golf ball sized amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam section to section, from root to tip, throughout wet hair
For longer hair like Demi’s, apply product liberally to ensure hair is completely saturated with the foam
Allow hair to air dry–in this case, during the duration of makeup application–gently scrunching pieces during the drying process
Once dry, take a 3/4 inch curling iron and bend strategic pieces throughout the hair, enhancing and defining the waves but pulling them loose as they cool for an elongated finish
To add sheen and the appearance of a “wet” finish, pump two palm-fulls of John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Six Effects + Serum and work it through hair, leaving hair with a beautiful shiny finish to glisten under the lights on the red carpet and the stage
