My favorite cosmetic souvenir from Paris: Nuxe all-in-one oil

Many people choose cosmetics when deciding what souvenirs to bring hime from Paris. My friend recommended that I buy Nuxe oil when I visited Paris. Even the local drugstore chain has a wonderful selection with “beauty advisers” (I’m not really sure what their title is) that will guide you with advice about what you are looking for. I bought the Nuxe oil and I LOVE IT! I even love the scent, and I generally am very “scent”-sitive. But I’m running out so I found it on Amazon and I bought it there. I think the prices are better in Paris. But I am glad to have this option until I go back to Paris and stock up on more!

Shopping for an Airfryer?

I chose the Breville Smart Oven Air… and then I bought one for each of my three adult children!

I bought the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro when I choose an airfryer for a few reasons:

  • I knew it would support the healthy whole food plant-based cooking I was learning
  • I did not like the appearance and lack of visibility of the classic air fryer appliances
  • I did not want another appliance on my counter
  • I read a lot of reviews, and watched youtube videos from Nutmeg Notebook on all the wonderful ways to use this superior appliance
  • I liked the variety of different functions available, including convection, roasting, baking, dehydrating, and settings for pizza and bagels!


  • This appliance is very large. I put it where my Breville Toaster Oven was. The only place we could put it in the kitchen was beneath a cupboard. I learned that because of the intense amount of heat emitted during many of the modes of cooking, I would need to keep two cutting boards on top of the oven to displace the heat emitted. Those are included in the accessories list.
  • The toaster function takes much longer than a conventional toaster. But I just account for that and put my items in earlier.

Recommended Accessories:

The product links above are for Amazon. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. The price of the appliance itself is the same on Amazon as it is at the Breville site and most major retailers. The accessories are actually less expensive if you order them directly from Breville. I do appreciate the ease of returning and exchanging with Amazon so I often choose to purchase from there.

I love this Breville Smart Air Oven Pro so much that I rarely use my conventional oven any more. I bought one for each of my adult children and their partners. I am sure they use theirs daily, maybe even multiple times a day, just as we do!

How do you think cooking with an air fryer will change the way you eat?

Staying organized in your kitchen

Containers and Lids

As plant-based eater and chefs, we need so many different containers and lids. Our cabinets can become really messy without the tools to stay organized. I love the youcopia line. I just bought this lid organizer and love how my cabinets look!
