Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Today I want to do a quick review about this foundation. I use this already for a month and OMG, this is amazing for a drugstore foundation.
As you see this is a liquid foundation with SPF 15 (perfect for summer).The consistency is creamy but on the skin is very light, the coverege is light to medium, you can build it up, has illuminating particles that illuminates and reawakens the skin for a radiant glow and a flawless, natural-looking finish. You may not like this foundation if you have oily skin or if you like a matte finish.
The packaging is very nice, true glass with a pump witch I found very practical  and hygienic. Has a nice scent. And not at least the price is amazing.
You can get it in 6 shades, I use the 100 Ivory, it matches perfect my skin.

Illuminating particles for a glowy finish

Coverage: light to medium.
Packaging: very nice, true glass with a pump.
Finish: glowy, illuminates the skin.
Price: very cheap 8 euro.
Perfect for: normal/dry skin.
I not recommend this for: oily skin, acnee skin.
SPF15, peptides and Vitamin-Moisturising-Complex.

I highly recommend to try this, I will definitely repurchase this.

The Perfect Simple Steak

This is my favorite piece of meat: the beef steak. Nothing special but perfectly done. To succeed you need three very important things: the perfect piece of meat (not thiner as one centimeter : 1/2 to 3/4 inch) , high heat and the perfect grill pan. I think I've found the perfect grill pan from  Le Creuset

STEP 1: Get your grill pan hot. A simple way to judge if your grill is hot is to hold your hand over the grill.  If you can hold your hand over the grill for more than 10 seconds the grill heat is low, for 6-8 seconds the heat is medium, and for 2-4 seconds the heat is high.  Four seconds is about perfect.
STEP 2: Season the meat generously with good quality sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
STEP 3: Place the meat on the grill and flip after it is well seared on the first side; then again after it is well seared on the second side – about 3-4 minutes per side.
Searing is essential because it adds flavour.  One of the biggest culinary misconceptions of all time is that searing meat “traps juices”.  Today, thanks to food scientists like Harold McGee, we now know that searing does not seal the meat.  On the contrary, it has been proven that meat cooked at constant temperature actually loses less fluid.  What searing does accomplish, however, is a complex set of “browning reactions” that combine sugars and amino acids to produce literally hundreds of new by-products, each of which have a distinctive taste and aroma.
STEP 4: Remove the beef steaks and the most important part : don't serve it right away. Let the steak "rest" for about 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the juices to move back in to the meat.
And the "real" most important rule is to practice!
We have served this with pan fried vegetables and rosé wine.

Mint Limonade

A great idea for a sunny after-work  afternoon.
You just need the juice from a hole lemon, some brown sugar, mineral water and some fresh mint.
