La La La

Because I have a concussion.... I get 20 minutes of computer time, 20 minutes off.....and I'm bored!

J.Crew rocks the best hair/make-up combos.  The dewy, fresh faces and the bed head + whispy top knots.  Sign me up.

These boots are Topshop but they soooo look Saint Laurent.  Count me in.

This makes me want to start reading After again! Used to be obsessed with it on Wattpad....good ol' One Direction Fanfiction! eeeeekkk.

For the days when you don't know if spot treatment or moisturizer goes on first..

Cause everyone sorta wants to be Parisian deep down, inside? Oui. (au revoir with the french tips and blow dryers!)

What the heck, its October.  Embracing pumpkin everything.

This cream blusher, bronzer, high lighter all mixed into one is helping me embrace my newly defined au natural makeup routine.  neeeeeed it.

How to get perfect hair most of the time?

Parisian vibes at Madewell... lovin' this sweater. 

Love the metallic temporary tatts floating around right now!

Fruiti Pebble Biscottis

I'm all for quirky, delicious foods.  I think fruiti pebble anything is up there with quirky.  Fruiti pebble biscottis??? Let me introduce you to my masterpiece!  

Now biscottis are traditionally cookies you have with coffee... now fruiti pebbles, coffee? Not so sure how I feel about that but these were delicious on their own.   Next time, I want to try corn flakes or cocoa pebbles. 

6 tablespoons of softened butter
2/3 cups of sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
2 eggs
2 cups of flour 
1 1/2 cups of fruiti pebbles 

In a bowl, cream butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, baking powder.  Beat in eggs on low, then add in flour.  Then add in fruiti pebbles. The dough will be very sticky.  

Biscottis bake in the oven twice, so bare with it because its worth it in the end! 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and assemble the dough into a large oval, about 2 inches tall.  Cook for 25 minutes @ 350. 

Remove from oven and turn heat down to 325.  Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes then use spray bottle filled with room temperature water, and spray evenly.  Let is sit for another 2 minutes.  Then, using a serrated knife, cut the loaf into biscotti pieces.  You can cut straight or diagonally. 

Transfer back on to baking sheet and cook @ 325 for an additional 25-30 minutes. Until biscottis are crispy and golden at the edges.

Greedy Weekly


Whats a fashion blog without weekly, greedy, obsessive wish lists?  Certainly not my blog!  I'm so good at browsing through Shopbop, Net-a-porter, Topshop, the latest and greatest of that week, and making a list of everything that I want..  The internet is my closet oyster because frankly, if you can't have it on the internet then where is it really yours?!  I'm diggin' camel, grey and black if you couldn't already tell... and I'm really feeling boots and sweaters.  I made pumpkin bread today, can you say token white girl in full force? It's all fun and games till I pull out the ugg boots and shorts combo.  Or maybe its just really scary...

A night

Torn by Ronny Kobo dress // Stuart Weitzman Nudist 

I feel like lately, I've been really embracing a tomboyish side... I don't know if its changing weather or my constantly evolving style but I'm loving jogger sweats and sneakers! UGH I love.  And boyfriend jeans with sweatshirts.  But enough rambling because I ain't wearing any of that in this picture.  SO this outfit.. Kinda has a Kim K vibe? Maybe, sorta, (I hope so?)  She slays the bodycon and minimal shoe/laceup sandal game... aka the only time I sorta wanna dress like her. These shoes are the Stuart Weitzman nudist and I have been wanting them for forever! I love them!  The balls of my feet don't but I wore birkenstocks the day after I wore the Stuart Weitzmans for a night so all is well getting better.
