Christmas Morning

I adore wearing my cutest PJs for opening my Christmas gifts. I always make sure to make a big cup of sweet tea to enjoy with some fruit cake.

Cookie Recipe
And because 'Tis the season to bake, here is my favorite cookie recipe which I tried today, and came out DELICIOUS! 


    • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
    •  2 cups white sugar
    •  4 eggs
    •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    •  5 cups all-purpose flour
    •  2 teaspoons baking powder
    •  1 teaspoon salt
    1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
    2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
    3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely
    4. To make icing, mix the milk and the sugar together with a fork. To make it more of a thin glaze, add more milk.  To make it a thicker icing, add more powdered sugar.

    Belle Époque: A Tribute To Diamonds

    Belle Époque: A Tribute To Diamonds

    Hello Fashionistas,
    Brilliant Earth, a jewelry company which provides the highest quality jewelry originating from pure sources, is launching their new collection, 'Belle Époque', today, 4th of December. Since I was extremely excited to see what their amazing designing team has prepared for this collection, I decided that I give you the chance to take an exclusive look at their new collection!
    The queen of jewelry, Audrey Hepburn, known for her part in the movie 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' had an amazing passion about diamonds, and gorgeous accessories.
    Marilyn Monroe though, internationally known as the most beautiful woman, has said the historical phrase: 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend', which is absolutely true. Am I right ladies?

    Anyway, enough with the history. Time for me to tell you more about Belle Époque. 
    Something that I found really interesting is that 'Belle Époque' is french for 'Beautiful Era'! How beautiful is this? Easy to figure though, since the entire collection is inspired by the uniqueness of vintage jewelry. Each piece tells its own story. Something you'll quickly understand is that all of the jewelry in this collection are detailed, romantic, feminine and delicate. 
    Just like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.

    To continue with, I made some fashion collages to show you different ways this delicate jewelry can be worn, in order to help you understand the entire collection's theme:
     Romance, Vintage and Precious

    Outfit No.1: Eternity
    Not really an outfit, but let's be realistic: Diamonds are equal to engagement.  Combined with the royal-like Bella Diamond

    Outfit No.2: It's all new
    A romantic, modern, cute combination. With the gorgeous Lyra Diamond Ring.

    Outfit No.3: It's all in the stars
    Diamonds always make girls shine like diamonds. Combined with Bezel Flower Stud Earrings.

    Outfit No.4: Romance
    Romantic, girly, lovable colors, combined with the beautiful Cherie Diamond Ring.

    Ladies, I think now you all know now what you want for Christmas, Valentine's Day, your birthday or your next anniversary… You can find them here and here!
