Where To Find Good Ole' Country Fried Chicken And Waffles In Dallas Texas

When it comes to southern soul food, I am the one in my family who knows where to find it and how to cook it in the kitchen. Well, let me just say us Louisiana gals know how to fry up some mean chicken, with a side of greens and cornbread. Scouts honor I ain't lying. :)
But, after moving to Texas, it has been hard to find a place where I can enjoy some real seasoned food,
I am no hater, but the south bayou is where any vacationer can find good ole' home-cooked meals that are seasoned to the bone.
I know most people think out of towners do nothing but complain but I assure you that is not the case. So, recently Rico (hubby) and I went on the hunt for chicken that was not the basic Popeyes.

We searched high and low, and not even the locals knew of a place that didn't require me to fly back down South.
Oh but let me tell yall we found an excellent chicken restaurant with a motto: that says this ain't your mommas chicken place. Now you know I was curious when I saw those 6 words. You know when somebody says they cook better than momma those were fighting words.

But, since I came to eat, I was not prepared to fight. So, I opted to sit down and see what the hype was all about.

Let' start with the menu: I fell in love because it had dirty rice, mac and cheese, fried okra, red beans, and collard greens.
But, I came for the fried chicken and waffles baby!

I ordered the maple butter waffle with bananas and pecans with four wings. Let me just say it was beyond good.


Did I mention they make homemade banana pudding? 



LoLo's Chicken and Waffles has now become one of my favorite places to visit for good down-home cooking.

Rico ordered the french toast with walnuts and bananas with maple syrup, eggs, and bacon. We both had their sweet lucy kool-aid. 
To be honest, I could not finish all my food. My waffle was super soft with a hint of crunch on the edges. There were no complaints at all from me. My husband french toast was soft as well, and taste like a warm piece of cake. I would recommend trying LoLo's Hood Classic and something off their desserts and dranks menu. Yes, that's how they spell and say their menu.

I must admit this is my new favorite place. So, if you are close to one in your city stop by and try it for yourself. :)

Tried On The Face: Three New Drugstore Facial Products That Has Given Me Pillow Soft Skin

 I am so ready for old man winter to freeze away so I can enjoy a day or two without dealing with my dry, itchy skin. Although I have had no eczema flare-ups since December, I am still conscious of the products I use on my face and body. One wrong ingredient can kick me into a scratching frenzy. So, I have spent the last two years, second by minute trying different things on my skin. Some have been a complete fail, and some have helped a little. 
After an extended test of trying things, I finally found what moisturizes my body, such as my back and legs. I started using the Cervae in the jar and pure sunflower seed oil mix. 
My skin has been so soft, and it stays moisturized which keeps my body from feeling dry, cracked and itchy.


Moving forward, I did not like using the mixture I use on my body on my face. The combination I mixed felt better on my body, but it felt heavy on my face. 
It never donned on me to try the whole line of Cervae products by all means the jar moisture did work for me.
I do have some good products I am using such as my oatmeal bar, Clinique and Laroche Posay. But I want something that has ceramides, and hyaluronic acid, which moisturizes and helps restore the protective skin barrier.
When my skin is dry and thirsty, it makes it prone to extreme dryness which then turns into possible eczema.

Although I love my luxury products, I do realize I need something that is going to work even if it cost less. Paying more doesn't mean its better. 
And I want what is best and what can help me feel better and look better as well. And I think I may have found something that I can rotate on my skincare regimen. 
With Spring fast approaching I know its time for a switch up anyways. So, I went into Target and spent one hour reading and checking reviews on the Cervae line of products for myself. Oh my goodness they have so many products from normal to dry skin, lightweight, moisture balance, and so on. It was a lot to choose from. The best part is they each did something different for the skin. 
After quite some time I finally found the three things that I wanted to try on my face and neck.

First, I would like to add Cervae is not cheap at all. Depending on where you go it was a bit pricey for drugstore prices but more affordable than Ulta and Sephora. So, I suggest you should do a  price compare. This only my honest opinion and review. 

Image: Woman sharing review about Cerave Hydrating Facial Cleanser. The first thing I purchased was the Hydrating Facial Cleanser: The results after two weeks have made an enormous difference in the texture and feel of my skin.  I did get the one that is for normal to dry skin. Because of the bottle saying it cleanses, hydrates and helps restore the protective skin barrier.  Also, it has three essential ceramides with hyaluronic acid included which helps with moisture balance. I also chose the Cervae line of products because it is fragrance-free and non-comedogenic which won't clog pores.

After several uses, I saw and felt my skin go from dry to feel soft as a fluffy pillow. (Not joking)
Image: Woman shaaring a review about daily moisturizing lotion. After using the cleanser, I always follow up with a moisturizer. Since my skin is picky I try to use the same steps and products that go together. In other words, I try not to mix products with other stuff. Especially doing those times when my skin is acting up. I grabbed the lightweight moisturizer because I didn't want anything too heavy at the moment. It has the same ingredients that help protect the skin just as the cleanser. It also says use as much as needed. So, I am not limited to once a day

All I have to say is my face is thanking me every day for adding these products to my skincare.

After I use the moisturizer, I follow up with their Skin Renewing Gel Oil.

Image: Woman holding CeraVe Oil for review. Oh my goodness this is a bit of heaven in a jar. I am not playing with you guys. it's small and a bit pricey (runs around 22 dollars) but it is so worth it. If you want that glowy and dewy skin feel and look. Hands down this are the product to grab. I will be buying two more bottles to keep under my cabinets. Because when I find something that is good and it works I will buy me a stash to keep as if the store is going to stop selling it. It has a silky and velvety feel that instantly improves skin radiance. After trying it, I can say it does just what it promises.

It is a ceramide boost with ceraplex, a unique 5 ceramide & sunflower blend.
What I love about Cervae it has everything my skin needs without purchasing everything separately. Their cleansing process is only the steps, cleans, moisturize and add oil. 

I am very familiar with all the things used in their products such as hyaluronic, which most products do not have included in their creams. If it's not covered, I have to buy it separately, and that just adds up to more money. 

Hyaluronic acid locks in moisture and helps firm the skin. It is perfect, and I do have a separate bottle that I get from Trader Joe's. 

So, I can honestly say these three products are worth me sharing on Bits and Babbles. I purchased all these products with my own money, and this is a real-time review.

In conclusion: As I've gotten older, my skin has been going through so many changes. I can not use the same products as I did when I was in my twenties. That is not a bad thing it only means I need to focus on what works and not whats for hype, I need hydration and moisture, so I have to be careful of the products that remove my natural oils that are required to protect my aging skin.

Yes, it is that serious. I hope this post was helpful to someone who is going through with skin problems. Let me know if you have tried these products. 

Let's chat leave comments below.

I made one pile for donations and then another collection for possible outfit wear. As I was rearranging stuff in my closet, I felt as though I wanted to keep all the things I moved to the side to give away.

Where I Shop For Cute Big Feet Shoes + Tips And Try On

Image: Woman shopping for big feet shoes to try on at store. Because I wear a size 9, I find myself purchasing a size 10, and it fits my feet perfectly.  When it comes to stylish and cute clothing that is a problem within itself, I notice the prettier the shoe, the smaller or narrow the sizes. If I find a well made beautiful shoe that fits my feet I have to buy them off the rack right then and there.
