ID-100206236

In my humble opinion, Stephen King is the ultimate master of horror films. That’s why I didn’t feel it was right to combine his masterpieces with the others in Pinky Chai’s Horror, Haunts and Zombie Boo Flicks Top 25 List (posted 20Oct / 2013). So, I’m sure you’ve been waiting in breathless anticipation for it, so here it is:

Pinky’s Top 10 Stephen King Horror Flick List

# 10: The Mangler : Classic old Stephen King

# 9: Stand by Me : Love it — watch the trailer

# 8: 1408 : I think I may’ve stayed at this “motel hell” before

#7: Cujo : Most attack dogs don’t wag their tails..

#6: Carrie : A classic.

#5: Dolores Claiborne : Haunting, but great plot — it’s true, “husbands die every day”

A Pinky is Worth a Thousand Words

Heaven is under our feet as
well as over our heads.

Henry David Thoreau

Love the trees until their
leaves fall off, then encourage
them to try again next year.

Every man has his secret sorrows
which the world knows not; and often
times we call a man cold when he is
only sad.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost

The best remedy for those who
are afraid, lonely or unhappy
is to go outside, somewhere
where they can be quite alone
with the heavens, nature and
God. Because only then does
one feel that all is as it should
be and that God wishes to see
people happy, amidst the
simple beauty of nature. As
longs as this exists, and it
certainly always will, I know
that then there will always be
comfort for every sorrow,
whatever the circumstances
may be. And I firmly believe
that nature brings solace in
all troubles.

Anne Frank

Those who contemplate the
beauty of the earth find
reserves of strength that will
endure as long as life lasts.
There is something infinitely
healing in the repeated
refrains of nature — the
assurance that dawn comes
after night, and spring after
winter.

Rachel Carson

Adopt the pace of nature: her
secret is patience.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Brown County State Park, Indiana

Our task must be to free
ourselves… by widening our
circle of compassion to
embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature and
it’s beauty.

Albert Einstein

And then there are the times
when the wolves are silent
and the moon is howling.

George Carlin

Everybody needs beauty as
well as bread, places to play
in and pray in, where nature
may heal and give strength to
body and soul.

ruining it is the most
beautiful art that anybody
could ever want.

Pinky & Mutt Get Down And Dirty: Bath Time


My dog loves bath day…really..

Right before she has bath-induced "lights out". Don't believe the innocent look. This is the face of a heathen, a clean/dirty heathen at that.

She’s ready to sleep now.
Don’t believe the innocent look. This is the face of a heathen, a newly clean, now dirty heathen, at that.

She stands perfectly still while she’s getting her bath and afterwards, I use the hair dryer. This is possibly, her favorite part. She rolls around on the bath towel until she’s done and dry.

THEN,

what irritates me  to no end, is:

AS SOON as she’s done running 30 –  50 laps around the inside – wants to go outside and tries remarkably hard to “dirty” and “smell” herself up – Blurg.

How unladylike. This is not acceptable Pinky-dog behavior. For sure.

After this, she’ll run inside, run a few more laps and then she finds a spot to sleep for the rest of the day.

…& that’s how bath day goes for this doxie owner ;).

Pinky Ponders: The Power of Music


The music scene is abuzz about the release of TLC’s biopic, Crazy Sexy Cool. Reviews call it a truly, authentic interpretation of the group’s struggles and victories throughout the past 20 years.

This film captures the heart of their style (and grace) throughout the ups and downs they faced.

The most memorable of those struggles was when Lisa “Left Eye Lopez”, an integral part of their trio was tragically killed in an accident. I still remember when it happened — it was such a shock. Sudden and unexpected.

I also remember watching the remaining two Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas suffer a deep loss that we as fans could only imagine what it felt like. To be going so strong and then have it all come to a screeching halt..

We could only view them as outsiders, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t feel the heartbreak.

Chasing Waterfalls

Pinky wonders — Why do we mourn for performers, musicians in particular? We’ve never met them, spoken to them, but yet, we feel like they’re a part of us.

They open themselves up through their music and lyrics.

They bare their souls to us. 

We believe that we understand their pain, their joy and everything in between — we feel it, what they feel because music is just that powerful.

& we subconsciously appreciate this “peek” into the expression of their souls.

TLC Lives on
If you’re a TLC fan, like Pinky — they just released (on Oct.15th,2013) a “Greatest Hits” CD 20  that features classics like Waterfalls, Scrubs and Creep PLUS, brand new tracks like Meant to be featuring T-Boz and Chilli. The new songs are reminiscent of their self-defined style that helped them rise to fame 20 years ago.

Check out this song, “Meant to be” written by Ne-yo (one of two previously unreleased songs on their 20 album) performed by T-Boz and Chilli.

Oh-Bla-Di Oh-Bla-Da

I think that if I had been alive when John Lennon was shot — it would have been a devastating day. I love the Beatles. It’s probably best I wasn’t born in the 50’s and a teenager in the 60’s. Pretty sure I would’ve been a tad bit obsessed with these Legends.

Gone Too Soon

But the singer that most struck me when she died was probably Aaliyah. It seemed that she had only gotten started. She died so suddenly, she was so talented and beautiful and had an amazing future in front of her. I love this song, “Rock the Boat”. Try Again, One in a Million, I Miss You and All I Need.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thank you so much for reading!

Good night, good afternoon and good morning, wherever you are : ).

Pinky Chai’s All-Natural ‘Boo’-Licious Beauty Blends


If you follow my blog, you know I love food. I’ve discovered a few more uses for food — beyond just feeding your face. Here is my list of all-natural beauty tips, remedies and regimens…Halloween-style:

Face lines from evil cackling?

WHITE GRAPES

Squeeze juice from 2 white grapes and mix with 1 teaspoon of sugar -- Leave on skin for 15 minutes & rinse. Repeat 2x a week.

Squeeze juice from 2 white grapes and mix with 1 teaspoon of sugar — Leave on skin for 15 minutes & rinse. Repeat 2x a week.

Smooth wrinkles, crows feet and laugh lines with white grapes. This super fruit contains alpha-hydroxy acids (much like expensive acid peels) that dissolve and exfoliate the dead outer layer of skin.

WHITE TEA

You don’t need expensive collagen implants. White tea wards off evil wrinkles and keeps skin soft and youthful-looking by boosting skin’s natural collagen.

Sip 1 cup of white tea a day to keep skin smooth from wrinkles and to keep skin soft and supple.

PUMPKIN

Pumpkin works as a softener to skin, especially when combined with other yummy ingredients like, yogurt (an all-natural exfoliant) and oats (a great skin moisturizer). Keep skin soft and smooth with the witches’ brew below.

Monster mash 3 medium strawberries together with 1 tablespoons of honey. Spread onto face and let sit for 10-15 minutes to reap the benefits of this breakout banisher.

Need to “scare away” breakouts?

STRAWBERRIES & HONEY

Strawberries banish dry skin and honey works as a natural astringent by making blemishes disappear. The yummy concoction below, scares away blackheads, pimples AND dry skin — like poof!

Need a sleep potion for restless nights?

CHERRY JUICE

Drink a glass of cherry juice for restful sleep before climbing into your coffin at night.

Cherry juice contains a natural pain-killing ingredient, which promotes more restful sleep. Research suggests and The Count agrees — you’ll get a good 17 more minutes of deep sleep by drinking this wickedly good nightcap.

Feel like a zombie from lack of sleep?

 

GINGER TEA

Ginger offers a variety of benefits among soothing evil tummy troubles and easing achiness to promote a more restful sleep.

Mix up a wicked brew of ginger tea for a good night's sleep.

Scratchy throat from shrieking and howling at the moon?

FLAX SEED

Bring 1 teaspoon of flax seeds and 1 cup of water to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Strain seeds and sip while warm.

Flax seed is an all-natural ingredient that loosens pflegm. Use the witchy spell below, to get back to howling, pflegm-free! As a bonus, flax seed helps to curb mood swings.

PEPPERMINT TEA

Put peppermint tea in your cauldron and inhale.

Put peppermint tea in your cauldron and inhale the steamy, peppermint goodness.

The natural menthol in peppermint tea releases sinister pflegm (better than over-the-counter expectorants) and gets you back to your old self, again.

vinegar bottles

Bring this unsightly affliction to a dead end by mixing 1 part vinegar and 2 parts warm water for a “fungus-freaking” foot soak. Soak feet for 15 minutes daily to banish the evil fungus banshee, for good.

Nail fungus creeping up on you?

VINEGAR

This common household product stops fungus and athlete’s foot in its’ tracks. The acid in vinegar destroys fungus, like garlic does to vampires.

Flat, dull hair got you feeling witchy?

ID-100185760

Combine 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary and 2 cups of water into a pot. Boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Cool and transfer the elixer into a spray bottle. Spritz on hair to make it glisten and shine.

ROSEMARY

Don’t shy away from the light just because your hair isn’t shiny and lustrous. Make it shine and glisten in the sunlight (AND the moonlight) with this clever concoction.

rosemary and mint conditioner

or…try my fave cheap conditioner EverStrong Sulfate-Free Fortify System Reconstruct Conditioner by L’Oreal Paris. It costs $6-8 at any department store or drug store. It is one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. Not only does it strengthen my hair (after just one use — according to the L’Oreal Paris website), but the rosemary makes my hair super shiny and the mint keeps my locks smelling fresh and clean. The rosemary-mint combo also works as an aromatherapy to invigorate the senses. Try it — it’s seriously great. No one is paying me to say this, I just LOVE this product enough to promote it. It’s de-liciously cheap and seriously good for your hair.

Who’s Afraid of Pinky Chai?


Check out what your biggest fear says about your personality —

ID-10073808

Spiders – You, cunning trend-setter, you…

You notice the small things about your environment and surroundings, allowing you to spot trends before they’re mainstream. You’ve got style, baby!ID-10070560

ID-10047730

Ghosts – Ghouls and Guys, you’re confident AND ambitious..BOO-yah!

You’re strong and secure in your convictions (even in terms of ghosts, which many dismiss with disbelief). You are a bold leader that believes in their own abilities —  rock on!

ID-10096218 ID-10090

Heights – “You know what I did last summer..” — you’re perceptive

If climbing ladders scares you, you probably have a hyper-sensitve nervous system. This means you’re more in-touch with what others are thinking or feeling than most. ID-10075457

ladder

Horror Films – You’re oozing with creative energy!

If fright flicks freak you out, that means that you have an extra high response to stress and a vivid imagination. Higher stress levels mean more stress hormones, which boosts energy level making you ghastly good at multi-tasking.

Snakes – You’re one smart (and adaptable) Halloween cookie!

You have a keen sense of survival and find you adapt easily to many different situations. This isn’t only useful when keeping an eye out for venomous snakes in the wild, but in the wilderness that is, your career, love life, etc… If danger is brewing you’re quick to spot it and sidestep it.

snakes

Tight Spaces – Wildly independent

You don’t like being confined. You push the limits past the boundaries that keep others held back. Your self-reliant attitude will get you out of “scary” situations and on the best (and most exciting) path possible for you. ID-10096105
