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.

Chocolate Strawberry Tartelettes


Yesterday I shared my tutorial on how to make heart-shaped strawberry slices, and today I'm here to share a quick, easy, and very yummy Valentine's Day dessert you can make with the strawberry hearts.

I start with premade frozen phyllo pastry shells. (You should find them in the frozen desserts section next to the frozen pie crust. Typically 12 shells come in each box.) These are my trick for elegant and effortless bite-size desserts and appetizers. You can fill them with so many different ingredients to create a delicious savory or sweet treat. Fill them with scrambled eggs for brunch, melt brie in them for a chic appetizer, or fill them with pudding and fruit for a tasty dessert.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1-2 packs of frozen phyllo pastry shells (get one pack for 2-4 people and two to three packs for a crowd)
  • one packet of chocolate pudding mix prepared and chilled (you can substitute with homemade chocolate pudding) *Follow directions for pie filling so the pudding turns out thick enough.
  • 4 medium to large strawberries (per 12-count box of pastry shells) cut into heart slices

 Lay the shells out on your serving tray and fill each with about 1/2 tbsn pudding. (You can also use white chocolate pudding to make white chocolate strawberry tartelettes. Top each shell with one strawberry heart slice.

Tip: Make the pudding the night before and assemble the chocolate strawberry heart tartelettes about an hour before serving so the shells don't get soggy from the pudding.
