At Rue Saint Honore & Jardin de Tuileries
Day 1 in Paris, a casual stroll with no destination in mind is the perfect way to start things off.
A Stroll Through Paris
Street Style: Palazzo Pants!
I got my palazzo pants at Top Shop back in late January. Now you can get them almost anywhere! Comfy yet stylish, you can wear them with sky-high platforms or with flats. Definitely a big trend for this season.
Vegan Tuscan White Bean Stew
This soup is really fast and easy, good for a quick week-night meal. I made this because I’m studying for finals, don’t have much time to cook, and it makes a lot of left-overs. On the second day, I added some whole wheat penne to what was left and it was A-mazing. Try this delicious soup with my Italian White Bean Crostini appetizers, my Fast and Easy Vegan Alfredo or this delicious...
Street Style: A Splash of Red
Shorts: Vintage Corset: F21 Shoes: Top Shop
HERE’S SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT: we currently raise 60 billion animals each year for food- 10 animals for every human on earth. The projection to sustain current consumption levels (which is conservative because consumption is increasing), by 2050 we will be raising 160 billion animals each year for food. That number would require more land for agriculture than exists on earth….just...
Incredibly Easy and Delicious Vegan Soft Serve
I am constantly experimenting with different ways to make vegan puddings, yogurts, and ice creams. This is by far the most simple (only 3 ingredients) way that I have found to make a chocolate soft serve that is not only good for you, but incredibly easy and delicious as well. You really can’t taste the banana all that much, it just adds a creamy taste and texture with a hint of banana....
How to Style a Little White Dress
For some reason, it’s always the easiest things to style that I have the most trouble with…. When it comes to styling a little white dress, there are so many options that it’s almost overwhelming (and I am the most indecisive person ever). I opted for making my shoes the focal point of this look with minimal accessories. I think the plain white dress is a good choice for such a...
Sexy Vegan Quinoa Sushi
Whenever my best friend Frankie comes over, she always asks me to make this. I’m pretty sure its what converted her to vegan ;-) My favorite way to make sushi is with quinoa instead of rice. I personally like quinoa much better, plus it has a lot of protein. It’s kind of hard for me to explain how to make sushi, but I will try my best. My directions don’t call for the sushi...
My BALMAIN Inspiration
Balmain is one of my biggest fashion inspirations, but is sadly out of my price range at the moment…. fortunately I’m good at improvising!!! I got this red jacket on my last visit to Italy 2 years ago… it was an impulse buy at the street market in Florence, the vendor said he would give me a “good price” since it was early in the morning and I was the first customer....
Last Weekend's AI Fashion Show
Some Iphone pics from the runway and backstage at the Art Institute’s annual fashion show. Some great collections were shown by the senior designers. I was glad to be a part of it :-)
God Save McQueen!!!
It seems like ever since Kate Middleton wore an Alexander McQueen wedding dress, its been the designer brand of the moment. I can see why she chose to wear him, he was amazing and will continue to be so in the legacy he left behind. I got these shoes for Christmas last year and I’m absolutely still in love with them like the first day I saw them. The emerald green sheer maxi skirt I made...
Weekend Morning Coffee Run
Weekend mornings…all I wanna do is lay in bed. But I can’t waste a free day since I have so few!!! When all I really want to do is throw on some sweat pants, especially after a long night out, these wide leg palazzo pants from Top Shop are a more stylish and equally comfy alternative. Just throw on a pair of sunnies to hide my ghastly morning face, a scarf, and some boots and I’m...
50 Calorie Sassy Molassy Vegan Cookies
ONLY 50 CALORIES PER COOKIE!!! Need I say more??? Actually, yes…. If you want something quick, healthy, and easy that will satisfy your sweet craving without giving you a crap-load of sugar and a fat ass, then this cookie is for you! The only thing is, since these cookies have only 50 calories each (yes its true I promise), you end up eating the whole batch…They haven’t lasted...
Please sir, may I have some more?
For some reason I feel like Oliver Twist in this outfit….
