Turn Up The Heat!

Cute clothes make these dreary days a little bit warmer... and so does a good pair of fuzzy socks and a snugly spot on the sofa.

global glam

I am one lucky girl.
My best friend’s annual trip to India over Christmas brought me a chance to snag some gorgeous Indian attire and jewels.  As seen in this previous post, the earrings she brought me have already been an amazing addition and global touch to my ever-growing wardrobe!

two of the three...

I am Polish, Hungarian and Italian...
 just kidding...
I wish I was part Italian! I am a sucker for fresh tomatoes, aromatic garlic and gooey cheeses usually found in Italian cooking. 

Tonight we made a Baked Rigatoni Cake(a pinterest find)- this bubbly, cheesy concoction was delicious. The recipe found here serves six to eight hearty servings, perfect for cozy nights in.
Happy Cooking!

the perfect accessory

The weather here has been a mess (one day it is rainy and cold and the next it is gorgeous and sunny), so my outfit and wardrobe planning has been a mess too. Catching one of the "gorgeous" days, I headed to the lake for some fun in the sun. Let me first say, I firmly believe in layering. Weather and weather forecasters are unreliable (sorry Larry Sprinkle), and especially when it comes to winter weather. Choosing a billowy and colorful blouse, I layered it with a structured vest. However the most exiting part of this outfit for me was the earrings! One of my best friends brought them back from India for me - they are chunky and heavy but insanely fabulous. She brought me some other goodies... so be on the lookout for my next post!

uptown girls

I love getting dolled up for dinner and drinks downtown.  With two of my favorite people in tow, I enjoyed one of the last nights of our winter break... back to school on Monday... boo...

“We're so old!”

Happy 2012!

I hope everyone had a festive and fabulous NYE! 2011 was a whirlwind of a year it was one filled with travel, love and unfortunately a great loss.  I enjoyed the company of a best friend this NYE- we relaxed, laughed, ate yummy food and cried about HOW OLD WE ARE GETTING! I know... 22 is pretty ancient...isn’t it?!?!  Anyways, here is a few pics of our festive New Year! xoxo
