Sky full of stars

Hi!! Wow I have been lacking in the posts as of late, I've just been so busy! Here's a look from last week when we had some beautiful weather. It felt like summer but in fall! I guess Mother Nature is trying to make up for summer? Not sure if I forgive her just yet. Anyway, this was a very simple and feminine look but felt very fun at the same time!
The sparkly blue crop top was $5 from Forever 21. The cheetah skirt was $10 from H&M and has been featured in many of my outfits (as you may have noticed) because it is super versatile and can be paired with a variety of things. The heels are from The Shoe Company. Click above to hype this look!

Macaroons!

Last week for the first time ever, I tried making macaroons. What I thought was going to be a horrible mess, actually turned out to be amazing! I got a ton of good reviews and I definitely will be making more of them in the future!


For these macaroons you will need:

-3 1/2 egg whites 
-1/2 cup of granulated sugar
-1 tsp of vanilla extract 
-2 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
-1/2 cup of chocolate chips 

Mix together the egg whites, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Beat this for approximately 2 minutes until it appears almost bubbly. Add in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips slowly making sure every part is moistened. Then take small scoops and roll them onto a greased baking sheet.

*Note: if it is very sticky and moist while rolling the balls this is okay! It can get a bit messy though. Rolling isn't entirely necessary, I just wanted to avoid them from falling apart! Finally, bake at 325F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet.

That's it!! Simple eh? Mine have been in the fridge now for 5 days and still taste great! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and make some tasty treats! These could be a perfect little dessert to add for thanksgiving :)

EPIC WEEKEND

This was Tuesday's look. Very relaxed and cool but chic at the same time, no? I love fall! Such a beautiful time of year. Please hype below if you like this :)
The EPIC WEEKEND shirt was $4 from H&M and is super cute. My jeans are an old pair that I bought for $15 from Garage. I am loving ripped denim right now, and am actually working on a pair of my own which I will hopefully be posting soon! The grey cardigan is from Primark.

London Fashion Week

Hello!! It has been quite a few days since I last posted, so I thought I'd share a recent look. This was from last week and was very much inspired by London Fashion Week. This was a very girly outfit and was super fun!
The "London" shirt is from Primark. The red skirt was $20 from Urban Outfitters. This was a fantastic purchase, and was actually a gift for my sister Rachel, but she never wore it so I permanently stole it from her haha. It is very light and comfy, and the perfect way to spice up any boring outfit. The boyfriend blazer is from PINK by Victoria's Secret and is lined with polka dots on the inside, HOW CUTE?! I paired this outfit with white knee socks, a red bow in my hair, and a little pair of secretary heels. Cuteness Overload???

WOD

This was actually yesterday's WOD but I did not get around to posting it until this morning. Anyway, here it is:

Warm-Up:
1/2 mile run 
Max handstand hold

Workout:
AMRAP in 10 mins of:
10 box jumps
10 sit-ups with dumbbell
10 burpees

*NOTE: If performing at home, be careful with the box jumps and ensure that your "box" is sturdy. I unfortunately had an unsteady table topple over on me yesterday during the workout. Still got up and completed it though!!

Finish off with:
Max handstand hold
1/2 mile run (as hard as you can)

Cool down by walking and doing a quick stretch afterwards.

The one that's broken

Yesterday's outfit. I am loving fall! These are my favourite pair of pants- I love anything bedazzled or glittery, so these do it for me. Plus they are high-waisted, so it is the perfect combo!
These fabulous pants were $10 from H&M! The blue crop top was $5 from Urban Planet. The jean jacket is from Gap (quite a few years old but still good as new.. I would definitely suggest investing in one of these)! I am a frugal shopper and typically only purchase items that are on sale or greatly priced, but there are a few staple items in my closet that I paid a little more for, but have gotten SO much use out of. This jean jacket (which is a total necessity to any wardrobe in my opinion) was probably around $50, but I have had it for atleast 4 or 5 years. Yes...I have not grown much, so this works to my advantage when shopping haha.
