Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! I hope you all have had a good week. I have quite a odd assortment of favorites to share with you today so I apolgize in advance at how odd they might seem:) Okay…here we go!

The Weekend Slouchy Top from Stella & Dot This off the sholder top with gold details is perfect for date night! I don’t own a lot of green either so this is a nice change for me. The fabric is very soft and has a bit of stretch to it also.

Haagen-Dazs Non-Dairy Chocolate Fudge Bar I have been dairy free for about a year and have had a hard time finding an ice cream treat that I thought was good…until now! Holy cow these are good…so good that I double checked the box the first time I tried them to make sure I picked up the non-dairy kind. Highly recommend!!!!

It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Brush I have tried quite a few foundation brushes and this one works best for me. It gives good coverage and never has left my makeup looking streaky and the brush is super soft.

Sharper Image Silicon Ice Sphere Molds I originally purchased these for my husband to use in his drinks, but I started putting them in my daughters Yeti since she has practice after school and they last all day! I take them out of the freezer and let them set out for about 10 minutes before I pop them out and they seem to come out easier that way.

Okay there they are, my top picks for the week. I’d love to know what your favorites are!

Until next time-have a great weekend!

October Stella & Dot picks!!!

New Stella & Dot arrivals-Top Picks!

Hi! Today I wanted to share some new releases from Stella & Dot for October. There were quite a few items that were recently released, but I’m going to share just a few of my top picks with you. If your interested in seeing the entire new collection please visit my site stelladot.com/bethsigala

Leopard Scarf This scarf is so pretty! I love that it is grey with hints of creamy white and pink.

Stars Align Climbers I admit I really love climber earrings. They are kinda edgy, but totally wearable anytime and they are a nice change from stud earrings. These earrings are too cute with the stars and feel featherweight on the ears!

Rebel Bracelet-Pink Ombre This bracelet is part of the Shop for the Cause Breast Cancer collection and has a georgous ombre effect! It has 112 Swarovski stones in it and comes in a beautiful rose gold. Even better, September 24-October 31, 2019 Stella & Dot will donate 20% of the retail purchase price of eligible sales to Bright Pink, an organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. (Click here to see the entire Shop for the Cause collection)

Crush it Essentials Crossbody-Black Quilted This crossbody is functional with 3 interior credit card slots, a zip pocket and since its quilted fabirc it can easily be wiped down if you get it dirty!

Puff sleeve Pullover in Blush All the comforts of a terry sweatshirt, but with some feminine details to make it look a little dressier. For a more relaxed fit I’d order one size up.

Okay, those are my top picks. There are A LOT of new items that have been realeased and more to come very soon so stay tuned! Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions I’d be happy to help you out.

Until next time-have a great weekend!

Apple Cake

IMG_4600
Isn’t this just the cutest little apple:)

Hello:)  Today I want to share one of my favorite desserts that I like to make in the Fall.  (Last week I was talking about making this too!) This cake is so yummy and has been one of my favorite desserts ever since my mom would make it when I was a little girl.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!  It’s pretty easy to make (the most time consuming thing is cutting up the apples) and your house will smell SOOOOO good while it’s baking… so worth it!

Okay so here’s what you’ll need…

Apple Cake

1 1/2 c. sugar

1 c. oil (I used Canola)

2 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs (beaten)

1 tsp. cinnamon

3/4 tsp. salt

3 c. flour

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

3 c. apples (peeled & chopped)

1-2 tsp. powdered sugar (optional for top)

Combine sugar, oil, vanilla, eggs and salt in mixing bowl.  Beat until combined.  Mix flour, baking soda and cinnamon in separate bowl and then combine with first mixture.  Stir in apples.  Scoop mixture into a greased tube or bundt pan (it will be thick).

Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 1/2 hrs. or until cake tester comes out clean.

Until next time!

Friday Favorites

Aveda Damage Remedy This daily hair repair is a lightweight leave in treatment that helps repair damaged hair, reduce breakage AND its a heat protectant too. I like that it’s lightweight and just a little amount goes a long way. Easy to use too…just work a small amount in towel dried hair & comb it through.

Olaplex Bonding Oil I have heard rave reviews about Olaplex shampoo and conditioner and I haven’t tried them yet…but this oil is wonderful!!! It good for all hair types (I have fine hair and it doesn’t weigh down my hair at all) and it helps protect color treated hair, fight frizz and provides heat protection.. I like that this can be used on damp and dry hair. I love to use it after I style my hair to smooth out any frizz and it helps smooth the end of my hair.

Clinique Pop LipColor I have worn Clinique lipstick off and on since I was in high school and I admit it’s been awhile since I have, but every time I put this color on I’m reminded how good their lipsticks are! The are never drying on my lips and they have a huge selection on colors and finishes…anyway this color (Beige Pop) is a great nude with a very slight pink undertone. I fill in my lips with neutral lipliner (right now I’m loving Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk liner) and then I apply the lipstick and it looks great!

Essie Nail Polish in Seeking Stars If your looking for a great dark bronze color with the slightest hint of shimmer this is the color for you! It screams fall and makes me want to put on a sweater and booties…but that’ll have to wait for now since today’s high is 90!!!

 

Okay, there you have it a few of my favorites for the week. We have a busy weekend of sports, but I’m hoping I get a chance to get in the kitchen and whip up one of my families favorite desserts…apple cake! What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever they are I hope you have a great weekend.

 

Until next time-

Beth
