Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!

I'm so excited that Aviana will get to trick-or-treat tonight with her cousins.  We skipped out on trick-or-treating last year so I am anxious to see how she will react to some of the costumes.

Hope everyone has a fun and safe day filled will spooky surprises and sweet treats!

Gluten-Free Pancakes

Wednesday, October 29, 2014


Today I am sharing a pancake recipe with you that I have been loving!  They are so delicious and Aviana just scarfs them down when I make them.  Don't feel discouraged if your pancakes get a little messy when you flip them.  This batter can be a little flimsy.  Also, if your batter seems a little thick, go ahead and add a tablespoon of water or almond milk.  This recipe makes about 2-3 small pancakes.

Ingredients:

2 Large Eggs
1 Ripe Banana
2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour (found at Whole Foods but you can also find it at Target)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Instructions:

1.  Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.  Make sure to mash the banana really well with a fork.
2.  Heat stove to a medium setting and grease with coconut oil.
3.  Pour 2 tablespoons of batter on to skillet and cook until bottom is golden brown.  Be careful when flipping.  The pancake batter is quite fragile compared to traditional pancakes.
4.  Top with maple syrup and your favorite fruit.

I recently started to add a dash of cinnamon to my batter and I think it gives the pancakes a really good flavor. I have also been wanting to add a little pumpkin puree.  Doesn't that sound amazing???  I just may have to try that this week!

Enjoy!

Jeweled

 Sweater: Loft (on sale!) | Jeans: Loft | Shoes: Nordstrom (sold out, similar) | Watch: Michele | Earrings: Kate Spade | Handbag: Louis Vuitton | Lips: Twig by MAC | Nails: Take It Outside by Essie

Hello and Happy Monday!  Just wanted to share a look with you that I wore last week.  I scored this jeweled sweater on sale at Loft and have already worn it a handful of times.  I think it would look cute layered over a white collared shirt once it gets cooler out.  It's still in the 80's here in Houston!

Hope you ladies had a great weekend and thank you so much for all the birthday messages on Instagram

MOTD - Neutrals

Friday, October 10, 2014

Dress: Loft (really old) | Necklace: Moon and Lola

Hello and Happy Friday!  I posted this photo on Instagram last week and received a lot of questions regarding my makeup.  This is not my everyday makeup routine.  I actually like trying new products and switching up my routine depending on the occasion and season.

Here are the products I am wearing:

Concealer: Cle de Peau Beaute
Mascara: Dior IT Lash
Lip Balm: Bobbi Brown
Setting Spray: Urban Decay Oil Control

I usually wear a BB Cream but it doesn't always provide me with the best coverage.  I have a skin condition called melasma and I think the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation does a great job at covering my dark spots and acne scars.  For my lips, I went with an old favorite lip liner by Maybelline called Toast.  I used this all over my lips and topped it with a lip balm.  I have oily skin so I always set my make up with a setting spray.

I typically stick to neutrals when it comes to my makeup, but I have been playing with deeper colors and would love to share a fall look with you all.  Let me know if this is something you are interested in.        

Thanks for following!  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
