It's cold, which means you want soup. But it's Lent, so no meat on Fridays. Sounds like a good time to try these 7 Savory Soup Recipes For Lent from www.drugstoredivas.net.It’s a Friday during Lent. And, if you’re Catholic, that means no eating meat. That doesn’t mean you can’t have something delicious, though. We put together a list of seven savory soup recipes for Lent.

I love making soup. Almost all the ones I make have chicken broth in them, but you can easily swap them for vegetable broth in order to make them vegetarian (and Lent approved). Those are alternates at the end of this list. The first seven soups in the list are meat-free.

How To Take Care Of Color-Treated Hair #YSYW

How To Take Care Of Color-Treated Hair #YSYW

#ad Learn how to take care of color-treated hair with this post from www.drugstoredivas.net. #YSYWI’ve played with the color of my hair just twice in my life. When I was in my late teens, I dyed my whole head jet black … and didn’t take a single photo of it. I remember thinking that was strange at the time, that I would have nothing but the memory of that black hair, but nothing to prove it actually existed. That was a pre-mirror selfie time though, before my friends and I started photo-documenting every moment of our lives.

The next time was a handful of years later when I bleached the entire underside of my hair blonde. Okay, I didn’t do it. My uncle who owns a hair salon did it. I loved that style so much. At the time, my brother asked me if I thought I would hate that style when I looked back on photos years later. I told him no, that I would love it. But, actually, I do still love those photos so much. I always think about doing it again, but I actually grow my hair to donate it, and you can’t donate bleached hair.

My mom, however, dyes her hair (Shhh, cat’s out of the bag!). She took a trip down to CVS to fill you in on her latest routine from cvs.com/yourstyleyourway so she could tell you how to take care of color-treated hair.

How To Take Care Of Color-Treated Hair

At her local store, she picked up: TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo, TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Color Conditioner, TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Hair Spray, and TRESemmé® Keratin Heat Defense Spray.

Step 1: Cleanse with TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo.
Step 2: Condition with TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Color Conditioner.
Step 3: Style with TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Hair Spray.
Step 4: Finish the look with TRESemmé® Keratin Heat Defense Spray.

It’s a great four step regimen for beautiful, silky-smooth locks. The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo and Conditioner is specially designed for color treated hair. It’s formulated with Keratin and Moroccan Argan Oil to nourish and protect your colored hair while smoothing hair from root to tip.

The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Frizz-Free Hold Hairspray has a salon-inspired formula to control frizz for up to 48 hours, creating a protective barrier finish to lock out frizz and humidity.

And the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Defense Spray helps shield hair from the damaging effects of heat styling and seals in shine. This is especially good if you blow dry your hair.

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Looking for a great breakfast recipe? Check out this zucchini bread recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.Every summer, a group of my family and friends would go camping for a week. The adults would pack coolers with food and drinks. My aunt used to make zucchini bread a lot during this time. One year, my cousin was old enough to help and made the loaf herself.

That was the year a squirrel climbed into their car when they were unpacking their camping gear … and ate the bread!

I actually don’t remember ever seeing zucchini bread at any family function again. It popped into my head recently, so of course, I had to ask my aunt for her recipe. It has changed since the year the squirrel ate it. It’s a lot healthier now, but still tastes just as great.

What’s great about this recipe is that you can freeze the second loaf. I wrap it in foil, then place it in a freezer safe bag. If you’re having overnight guests, pull it out and let it defrost in the fridge. It will be ready for your guests the next day.

If you make this and you need it a little sweeter, you can add a dollop of honey too. Or, if make it with 3/4 white flour and 1/4 whole wheat flour, then continue the recipe as is.

Need to bring a dish to a Mardi Gras party? Try this DIY Mardi Gras Candy Bark from www.drugstoredivas.net.The Mardi Gras party we went to over the weekend required everyone to bring a New Orleans-inspired dish to pass. There was a bunch of dishes with andouille sausage, but only one  DIY Mardi Gras candy bark.

It was beautiful and colorful and perfectly looked like Mardi Gras. Plus, it was a lot easier than cooking crawfish. So, if you have a Mardi Gras party coming up and aren’t in the mood to make jambalaya, this candy bark is for you. Plus, it assures there is a dessert at the party too — in case someone forgot to order a King Cake!

Headed to a Mardi Gras party but don't have a mask? Make this DIY Mardi Gras Mask from www.drugstoredivas.net.We went to a Mardi Gras party yesterday and the requirement for entry was a mask. Cool, I thought. I’ll just grab two at the store and we’ll be good to go.

Oh, if only it was that easy.

I checked up and down two stores with no masks in sight. So I did what any normal person with time constraints would do. I put together a DIY Mardi Gras mask for me and another for Pete.

I did cheat just a little bit and used a template from Sasquatch Willow to start. Our party was about four hours after I got home from shopping, so I didn’t have time to draw one of those as well. A little Googling and I found her site, which actually has a few templates.

Print out and cut the mask template. Lay it on top of a piece of foam that you want for your top embellishments, and trace it. Cut it out.

Do this for as many masks as you’re planning to make.

Cut the embellishments off of the mask template, so you just have the “eyes” portion. Lay that on top of a second piece of foam and trace it. Cut it out.

Glue it to the larger foam cut out.

Cut out a few diamonds, triangles, and circles, and glue them on to the face of the mask.

Using Mod Podge, paint around the edges of the embellishments. Sprinkle with glitter. When it dries, put on another coat of Mod Podge. That will dry clear and it will seal in the glitter so it’s not falling on your face all night.

When the mask is clear, glue (or tape) the skewer on to the back of the mask so you have a handle. Now you’re ready for Fat Tuesday!
