Happy Weekend - Vintage Check Printed, Ruffles!

 Happy Weekend! As I mentioned earlier, I'm loving Ruffles right now! and I scored this check printed, ruffled sleeve blouse at the Monday, Noorder Market in Amsterdam (for only 5euro's!) definitely worth the time to dig through piles of vintage. Sometimes you might just find something that is totally in fashion upcoming season!

DIY Patched-up Rock&Roll Tee

Like a groupie from a rock & roll band, collect different patches and iron them on a cut out tee or denim vest. 
My patches are some what random like a "slot machine" theme.

Stuffed Bell Pappers 4 Ways

Happy Monday
On request of an old friend of mine, I share this recipe.
Bell Peppers are awesomely versatile, and the variety of colors and tastes that they come in! They are summer vegetables, so get your hands on them while you still can!
A fun way to serve your dinner is, by stuffing the bell pepper either if your having dinner alone or with friends!
You can basically stuff it with what ever you like, but here are some tips;
Latin; black beans, coriander, rice or quinoa, queso blanco (white cheese)
Greek; tomatoes, olives, feta, quinoa
Middle-Eastern; cous cous, ground meat, raisins, dash of cinnamon (it's deeelish!)
Mexican; chili con carne topped with cheddar

It is also a fun alternative in case you have left overs. For example yersterday I made a Latin inspired bell pepper with left over black beans
Simply cut the top off, take out the seed part.
fry your veggetables and cook either your rice, beans or quinoa or cous cous etc.
Make a mixture with all ingredients, stuff the pepper and pop in the oven.
Pre heat the over, set to 180*C and leave in for 15-25 minutes
Et Voila! Bon Apetit!

Smore S'mores

It feels like summer almost over, days are getting shorter, winds are picking up and fall collections are on display in the stores windows. 
Today I woke up to raindrops on my window and I'm not complaining (just yet), Fall is always so cozy and time for inside activities. If you have not gotten the chance to BBQ one last time, you have not had your S'mores fix. This cake is a take on the oh so yummy summer S'mores.
1. Bake a double chocolate cake and cut into two layers. You might have to bake two cakes and then stack 'em.
2. On one layer spread out marshmallow fluff (note; only spread in the middle, not till the edge, the weight of the cake will spread it out)
3. Another layer with double chocolate icing and chunks of graham crackers. 
4. Finally ice complete cake and decorate with crushed graham crackers and mini marshmallows.
Et Voila! Your S'mores inspired cake ready to be devoured!
