Remember when I decided to make a necklace out of paper beads? It just wasn’t enough. I love the look it creates when you stack the paper together. This ring was created like any basic paper mâché project, using wheat paste. [keep reading]
I’m not quite sure I’m out of my black phase yet. But if I were to don an alternate, it would be a deep red wine. It goes great with black, purples and other reds. Mix it up.
Here are my favorites: Etnia Barcelona Sunglasses // Lizzie Fortuna Oxford Necklace // Juicy Couture Solid Ponte Dress // Painted Dress // Free People Vegan Leather Peplum Jacket // Wine Velvet Pants // Butter London Lippy in Wine Gums // Butter London Nail Lacquer in La Moss // Lonely High Waist Brief & Convertible Bra
Want even more? I’ve got you covered on Pinterest. Now tell me, what’s your favorite Winter shade?
Y’all know that I am obsessed eyes and evil eyes by this point. So I’m sure you can guess that I am freaking out over all of Kenzo’s eye motif stuff. The lotus eye sweatshirt and the eye print sweatshirt are sold out and the clutch is leather. So I would be S.O.L. except….. I love to D.I.Y.
Come back tomorrow to see the tutorial.
Do you have a favorite motif?
If you follow my personal Instagram, then you know I eat pho like 4 nights a week, I had to stop ‘gramming it because it would take over my feed. We eat it THAT much. We make it at home too but one of my favorite places is to get it is Oh Mai. They have a huge menu with pho (rice noodle soup), Bahn Mi (Vietnamese sandwiches), and Bun (vermicelli noodles). Everything is delicious and they have tons of gluten-free and vegan options. [keep reading]
Avocado on toast is one of my favorite things on the planet. Seriously. There isn’t much better than the creaminess of the avocado mashed over the warmth of the toast. Don’t forget the sea salt. It’s my dream. When I saw a recipe for it in Crazy Sexy Kitchen (also available here on Kris Carr’s website) I scoffed. That’s right, scoffed. I could not believe that my classic could be improved upon. I stand corrected.
Confession time. I’ve had three strands of these beads in my stash for months. Honestly, I’ve been meaning to do a DIY with them forever but every time I tried, using the full strand was just, too much. This version, with sections of the spikes, is much more wearable and layer-able (not actually a word by important for jewelry lovers!) than a full strand of the spiked beads.
Guys! I’m not sure why it took me so long to think of this new series. But, duh. My name is Kristiina. I adore Kris Carr and all her books. I should obviously cook my way through Crazy Sexy Kitchen and blog about it. I mean really, duh. So for the first installment in this series, please excuse the crappy lighting. It was a cloudy day. I had to start with the Crab Cakes because, wow, the thought of vegan crab cakes, blew my mind. I haven’t had crab in years, I don’t even know how many.
This is an incredible recipe. The hearts of palm give you the texture of crab and the nori gives you the flavor. I followed the recipe to the T with one tiny exception. I used gluten-free bread crumbs instead of panko crumbs. The crab cakes are listed as an appetizer in Crazy Sexy Kitchen. To make them a main dish, I served them on a bed of greens with red baby potatoes and a Brussels sprout hash. [keep reading]
There are a couple of statement items you need this Fall/Winter season. One of them, is a pair of leather joggers, AKA leather sweatpants. Luckily, MOST of the ones out right now are actually faux leather. (Yay!) The only real leather pair I’ve seen so far are by Marc Jacobs and are priced at over $900. For most us, that is just too much to spend on a pair of seasonal pants. Not to fear, there are some great alternatives. If you are ready to try the trend, here are six different options that fit very different budgets.
Are you ready for the easiest DIY ever? This simple handpiece is a breeze to make. You don’t even need a clasp. [keep reading]
