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.

Meatless Monday: Sweet Pea Parmesan


One of my favorite ways to go meatless is to simply throw together pasta, parmesan, and a green veggie like peas, broccoli or asparagus tips.

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 2)

*7oz uncooked dry spaghetti noodles

*1 C frozen sweet peas (can substitute w/any frozen veggie)

*1/4 C olive oil (or a few tbsp butter if you prefer)

*1/2 C grated parmesan

*pepper to taste

*garlic salt to taste (can substitute regular salt)

Simply cook the pasta as usual but a few minutes before it is done (when it's al dente) add in the frozen veggies and continue to boil.

Drain veggies and noodles and put pack in pot. Add oil/butter, cheese and spices and stir thouroughly. Serve with a salad.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can substitute with any kind of pasta or white cheese you have on hand, and you can substitute so many other different veggies. If you have super-picky eaters like I do, you can even cook a few different veggies and serve them separately as toppings. On nights when you do serve meat, you can try it with cubed chicken breast or smoked sausage. This dish is so easy and inexpensive, and you can cook it in less than 30 minutes.
