The new member of the Royal Conservatory Community Choir !

Was it fun ? Yes ! All the time NO ! Why ???

1- Everybody in my class is older than me and I thought I wasn't going to " fit in the group " until they sang better than I ever could imagine...
2- My sight singing  is very bad, I gotta live from now on to be a master in that
3- I HAD THE MOST FUN EVER ! I love how challenging this will be and I am mega ready for it !!

   We are working on two pieces. A CEREMONY OF CAROLS an old British English ( yes I barely speak regular Canadian English here I go ... )  written by Benjamin Britten while he was in the sea ! Traveling from the USA to England, that makes me like this piece even more it's a looooong song ! all the way from 1942 to 2012 in my life...

  It's wasn't the first time that I wanted to try, but they were always very expensive, today I found a smaller package 56g for $2.99, I did some research and some of the benefits are ...

                                    Chia is THE BEST !!!

    How to eat : add to salad, 30min before meal eat a table spoon for weight loss, make smoothies BE CREATIVE ! 


    Chia seeds are a source of amazing long-term energy, which overtime can actually help your body to function at its best and burn more calories throughout the day. Chia also contains a high source of omega-3 fatty acids, similar to flax. 

    Another thing to be aware of is that chia becomes mucilaginous when soaked; so go ahead and make a pudding, jam or add it into your smoothies. Chia can help reduce nervousness, treat insomnia, improve mental focus, and it can become a soothing gel to help lubricate dry skin. If you find you are a little backed up, take a dose of chia and things will move along just fine— it is brilliant ! 

                             The power of COCONUT !

Coconut Cream : I love to cook with coconut cream/milk, I usually cook chicken breast with any vegetables and this is one of my favorite dishes to make at home, I will later put up a full recipe !

Coconut Oil the MUST have :

* Cook ( yes never ever need to use butter again ! ) after frying you lose the nutrients be careful, also for baking and adding to your food make sure you like the flavor !                   

* as a Tanning Lotion , yes it mega works the smell is delicious it has NO chemicals and the color of the skin is gorgeous after ! 

* mix with Almond oil to prevent Stretch Marks and use as a natural Body Cream !

* Lubricant ! yes your love will taste even better, and once more it's totally natural !

* Hair cream ...
