My Favorite Jewelry Trends for Fall

As back-to-school approaches, I can't help but look forward to the Fall season. One of the best things about Fall in my opinion, is the fashion! With tall boots and suede hats to chic satchels and statement jewelry, it's the best time of the year to have fun with accessories. Personally, one of my favorite Autumn accessories, and the easiest way to update an outfit, is jewelry. From a big bold ear cuff to minimal gold necklaces with interesting little pendants, my fashion forecast for Fall this year includes more modern and sleek pieces.

For example, while I tend to love a pair of sparkly statement studs or a larger dangling statement earring, this Fall I see a modern ear cuff being one of the biggest earring trends, and it's definitely one of my favorite jewelry trends! It looks great on its own or paired with some gold hoops, and you can even pair it with a cool ear crawler. These elegant and modern ear cuffs come with sleek built-in tassel earrings. I love that this je…

Spice Up Your Pancakes for Fall

 

My daughters and I love making pancakes for a weekend brunch, especially during fall. Though don't get me wrong, I rarely make them entirely from scratch. I do love to bake and cook homemade, but I don't want to spend all weekend doing it. Still that doesn't mean we sacrifice on flavor, not one bit. This weekend we added ground cinnamon, nutmeg and liquid maple flavoring to the boxed pancake mix.



Next time you have a cozy Sunday brunch, try spicing it up with these fall flavors (based on mixture of 2 cups dry pancake mix):

1. Apple Cinnamon: add a peeled, finely chopped extra large Granny Smith apple and 1 tspn of ground cinnamon

2. Cranberry Orange: add the zest of one large orange and one cup dried cranberries (soak the cranberries in water beforehand until they plump up a bit)

3. Vanilla Spice: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract, (optional): seeds from 1 fresh vanilla bean, 1 tspn ground cinnamon

4. Butterscotch: add 2 tbsp liquid butterscotch flavor

5. Pumpkin Spice: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract and 1 tspn pumpkin pie spice

*The possibilites are endless. You can use any combination of spices and flavoring extracts. Make them into dessert with candy sprinkles or chocolate chips. Add a cup of fresh, dried or thawed frozen fruit, and you can also add nuts or oats. For a rich, hardy texture and flavor, start with an instant pancake mix in whole wheat or buckweat. Then don't forget to drown them in maple syrup!

  2. Pancakes are of course a personal favourite. I like the apple cinnamon variety, but also blueberries.

    1. I think I just like them because I get to pour maple syrup on them. Apple cinnamon are my favorite!

  3. I do make apple pancakes using chopped apples. My family loves them. Never thought of adding cinnamon though.
