Blinging With BettyRay




If you know me, you know I can't resist some good bling. So you can imagine my excitement when I was introduced to BettyRay - an online shop out of Montreal filled with amazing pieces at amazing prices (win/win!!!). I kid you not - everything on the site is super cute and covet-worthy - you must check it out - seriously go. right. now!  I couldn't resist these double gold band rings, perfect for wearing separate or stacked on the same finger and this stunningly unique double stone adjustable ring. And since I seem to have a thing for all things triangles as of late - these large and small gold necklaces quickly found their way into my shopping cart.

The Best Harem Pants & How To Wear Them

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Each season, there is always something that I can't seem to live without. This past winter I lived in chunky mock neck sweaters and in the fall my distressed overalls rarely left my body.

This spring (if you want to even call it that), I've got a major hankering for all things harem pant. Structured or slouchy, solid or patterned, extreme drop crotch or subtle pleating - I'm loving them all. Besides being the most comfortable item of clothing in my closet, they just exude this effortlessly cool vibe that doesn't exist with some of my other coveted pieces.

Last week, I purchased the holy grail of harem pant perfection - the Eileen Fisher Jersey Harem Pant. If you are in the market for a pair, I highly recommended the splurge.  They are worth every single penny.


Check out these other awesome pairs that are sure to please!





Wondering what to wear them with?  You can't go wrong with a great cotton tee.  High/low styles work really well allowing you to tuck in the front without too much extra fabric.





Then top it with a great cropped jacket.

Delicious Passover Hazelnut Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies


The ultimate test of a good Passover cookie is whether I'd eat it outside of Passover. These Hazelnut Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies from Smitten Kitchen certainly fit that criteria. They're wonderfully chewy on the inside and the roasted hazelnuts pair perfectly with the chocolate topping (obviously). This girl's giving these two thumbs up.
