PECAN PIE CHEESECAKE

Browsing through Pinterest for a new dessert idea, I fell on this recipe. I love pecan pie and I love cheesecake, so I thought the combination of the two would be divine – I wasn’t wrong! It was not an easy cake to make – it took a few hours, but it was definitely worth it. Everyone thought it was delicious & I have a new recipe to share with you girls: http://www.heidis-so-called-life.com/2010/11/pecan-pie-cheesecake.html Here are the ingredients I used: Let me know if you’ll try it & how it turns out :)

WHITE SHORTS

White is timeless, it’s in style every summer & it goes with everything. I got these white shorts on my trip to London last summer at Bershka & I’ve been wearing them for months after that. I’m so happy it’s finally warm outside so that I can wear them again. I usually like to wear shorts with flat sandals but I decided to give heels a try & I must admit I really like it. I got this olive blouse at Zara last summer as well. A lot of trends come back in style from year to year,  so when…

MANGO TARTAR

Over the long weekend we were hosting a dinner party & I needed a quick appetizer to prepare. I usually make a tartar (already gave you girls the recipe in my previous posts) but I wanted some variety, so I did some research and stumbled on this recipe: http://www.yuppiechef.com/spatula/salmon-tartare-with-mango-and-coriander/ I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like tartar! This recipe is perfect! I have eaten mango tartar in a restaurant before, but I was sacred to make it myself – honestly, it turned out great and everyone loved it. There is quite a few ingredients, such as sesame oil & wasabi…

JILLIAN MICHAELS BODY REVOLUTION

I have officially completed the 7 day kick start your metabolism program!!! Not eating carbs or sugar for 7 days straight is not easy, let me tell you that! Combine that with a series of exercises (30 mins workout and 30 mins cardio tapes a day) and you are on a mission! But, if it was easy, everyone would do it right? So, after this intense week, I have lost…drum roll… 6 lbs and my stomach has never been flatter :) This year I decided to keep my New Year’s Eve resolution! I’ve decided to get in shape before the summer…

STRIPES & SHORTS

Shorts season is coming soon! We got a little taste of it this week, but it’s back to cloudy & rainy – let’s hope that changes quickly :) This very simple outfit is great for a Sunday brunch or running errands. I bought these denim distressed shorts at Zara a few months ago actually, when it was still snowing outside b/c the fit is simply perfect. They go with pretty much anything in my wardrobe & they’re definitely perfect with this striped top from Gap. Similarly to scarves, I love stripes – I have multiple striped tops in various colors…
