Kitchen No. 324--Tasty Thursday

Happy Tasty Thursday!  I don't even know where to begin.  I'll just start by saying YUM!  

So, on Monday my mom, Fenley and I went to have lunch at Kitchen No. 324.  I have to say we were not disappointed.  The atmosphere is something straight out of NYC.  The food is amazing, excellent, so tasty.  We already have plans to return.

This is one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten, also known as Fried Chicken Pot Pie.  Rich and creamy with tender free form chunks of chicken, delicately diced veggies and fresh herbs garnished with a crispy fried chicken leg and topped with a flaky pastry crust.

Macadamia Natural Oils

I have to say, I have always taken a lot of pride in how my hair looks.  I mean my senior year of high school I was voted best hair!  I'm really cool, aren't I?  Ha.  I've been keeping up my "natural" blond locks for quite some time now...with spurts of red...and brown, once (say no to brown).  Even through this maintenance my hair has stayed remarkably healthy.

Cut to after the birth of my daughter.  No, cut back to pregnancy.  My hair and skin were looking pretty good, if I might say so myself.  Now, cut to after the birth of Fenley.  My hair and skin are not something I'd like to brag about.  Really, you probably can't see too much of a change, but I can.  My skin is dry and back to having minor breakouts and my "natural" blond locks are feeling quite dry.  I know this is do to a change in hormones (yeah, yeah), but I'm gonna try and help what has taken a turn for the not so much better.

This is Macadamia Natural Oil.  I've heard rave reviews about this stuff.  It's supposed to be good for all hair types...dry, colored...I'll stop there since that covers me!  Anyway, I just got it and am going to be trying it out.  I thought I'd let you know what's going on, I'll try it, then tell you what I thought.  Ok, a review!

Here's the Rejuvenating Shampoo.  Nice, and free of all bad things!

Meet Moisture Rinse.  Nice, and free of all bad things!  It's a daily conditioner for those of you who choose to wash your hair that often.

This is the Deep Repair Masque.  Fancy!  It reconstructs dry hair and I'm sure brings it back to it's glory days.

Finally, Healing Oil Treatment.  It's a healer and a therapist all packed in a 4.2 ounce glass bottle (with a pump).

I'm gonna give these all a fair shot.  We'll see if they are really miracle workers in a hair care form!
