3 for 1

First things first, I have to extended my thought and prayers out to the families that were effected by hurricane sandy. I, myself, live on the east coast but planned a vacation to California which so happen to fall the same weekend the hurricane hit so I was so fortunate and am very grateful.

 Ok now to the fashion. I have been a bad blogger *slaps self on wrist*. I've haven't been particularly consistent with posts for a couple of weeks because life has been happening. Fortunately, I'm getting things in order so I'll be posting on a much more regular basis. I thought since I've been neglecting my responsibilities I would give you three different outfits in one post.

 These first shots were taken about a month ago when the weather was a little warmer. I love this dress. The colors are so appropriate for fall and the silhouette is versatile. Between me and you, I've worn it many a few times and have styled it a few different ways.
Dress: Tobi (similar here)
Boots: Steve Madden (love these)
Necklace: Via TjMaxx
Bracelete: Thrifted

Red Velvet Truffles

When cooking, I find it important to really stick with what you know and then add to that to make something special. I have made many a Red Velvet Cakes in my day (like when I was 16 lol) , be it for high school cheerleading fundraisers or as dessert for a nice family meal but I love the way this recipe gave me a new twist to a classic.  
Now, you have two options when making this recipe, you can make the red velvet from scratch (which I did) or you can by a box cake and make it. Either way it is a dish that you are not going to want to pass by. 
With the holiday season coming up, I thought it would be cool to add a candy corn but then I realized that I should have just made the cake orange. Well, you live and you learn. If I decide to make them again, which I probably will, I will make them orange for Halloween and I'll be sure to let you all know how they turn out.

Cheetah Print and Blue Silk

This is an outfit I wore to the Worn magazine launch party about a week ago. I want to make sure that I was going to stay warm, as the party was along side a roof top pool and the weather is getting fairly cool at night. Though the temperature is dropping I refuse to wear tights just yet. Love this peplum jacket, I can dress it up, like so, or dress it down with a nice pair of jeans.

Fall Fashion Favorites (Giveaway Winner)

Hello gorgeous people. Lovely weather we're having. (Well at least if you're in the DMV). As you can tell, from my pass couple of posts, I am too excited for fall. I love the crisp weather, the yummy food and most importantly the fashion. I am currently trying to build up a fall wardrobe but not just any fall wardrobe. One that will last me into winter and be just as chic come next fall. I was checking out the offerings at some of my favorite site (While siting by my new fire pit lol. Yes I am excited about my fire pit) and made a pinterest board out of my picks. I thought I'd share some with you all just in case you're like me and you're building your fall wardrobe as well.

Tan Cardigan

 Hey all. Just wanted to do a quick post on an I outfit I wore this past weekend on a visit to Eastern Market. If you aren't familiar, eastern market is a farmers market in the capital hill area of DC. It's such a wonderful place to buy fresh produce, arts and craft and much more. I love it there, and thought I would be cosy and comfortable while walking around all of the stalls. Simple outfit for a peaceful day.

Tank top: F21
Jeans: Old Navy
Cardigan: via TJmaxx
Shoes:Steve Madden via Tjmaxx
Necklace: via Tjmaxx
Bag: via Marshalls

Some flower I purchased. Aren't they beautiful.

Mini Cinnamon Cheesecakes with Pumpkin Pie frosting

 In cast you didn't notice, it's fall! With fall comes all of the yummy comfort food that we know and love. One of those comfort food, that can be seen everywhere, is pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin pie, it is just the essence go the winter fall season. Any variation of the dish is welcomed by me and today's recipe is no different.
I found this amazing recipe on pinterest (follow me here). I know I've said this before but I love pinterest, it's a creative mind's playground. As with all of the recipes I find, I always like to put my little Trisha-spin on it so I hope you like my variation of this fall classic.
