Yum, yum, and yum! these brownies look so deliciously cute! Don't you think they are the perfect dessert for Christmas? I think yes!
Check out the rest of this recipe here.
1 pan of your favorite brownies, cooled and cut into desired size and shape (I used a round cutter)
12-16 small strawberries, cleaned and hulled
Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract and salt. Add 2-1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time and continue beating until smooth. Add more sugar, if needed to reach desired consistency and sweetness.
To assemble, pipe a ring of vanilla buttercream on top of each brownie. Cut off the base of a strawberry so it is flat and place it upside down on each brownie, pushing slightly to secure in place. Top the tip of the strawberry with a dot of buttercream to finish the santa hat.
Taking a study break from this plethora of study-madness happening around UCB Campus at the moment, and wanted to make a post related to something happy and fun -- two things that I am yearning at the moment. AND, this is going to be another Christmas-related post! As you can tell, I am very excited for Christmas to come in 2 weeks!! Time flies.
So, this coming weekend, I am going to attend a family party get-together, with traditional white elephant game, but something new is happening this year with an ugly christmas sweater theme, whoever has the ugliest gets a prize ;P. I love how we can incorporate ironic fashion into the mix of the holiday season. And so the search for inspiration for the best ugly christmas sweater begins! Join me :).
All-time fave ugly christmas sweater photo:
I guess 3d christmas sweaters can make a very ugly one indeed, no offense rudolph!
Never knew Santa's face can be used as ornaments, until this.
Better yet, wouldn't it be cool to have a 3d santa as your friend on your belly for the entire party?
And now i'll just end this post on a happy non-ugly note, with Ryan Gosling..not wrapped in an ugly christmas sweater but christmas lights ;).
Merry almost Christmas everyone!!
Hi friends!! So, as I was writing this post, I realized that I'm not a good wishlist maker. I save tons and tons of photos for future shopping inspiration - from blogs, magazines, etc - but I don't really online shop [as I try not to tempt myself] so I don't have a lot of specific products that I want! So, you guys get a really random wishlist from me...but it all makes sense to me! [Oh, and some of these are reasonable, but some are wayyyyyyyy out of any budget hehe]
Ways to stay looking flyyyy:
1. Rainbow dress by Christopher Kane - seen HERE
2. Galaxy Rainbow Leggings by Black Milk - HERE
3. Synthetic dreadlocks by Damnation Hair on Etsy - HERE [keep your eyes peeled...they may be a new intro in the next month!]
4. Elephant plugs by Omerica Organic - HERE
5. Crystallization heels by Iris van Herpen X United Nude - HERE [bahhhh why are these $995???]
Awesome things that would upgrade the day-to-day:
1. Canon EOS Rebel T2i for documenting all my adventures - HERE
2. Singer 2263 Simple sewing machine for making new clothes - HERE
3. Avocado VW Bus for spontaneous camping trips - HERE
What's on YOUR list??
This time of the year I bring to you, Christmas nail art via Instagram. These ladies are all very inspiring and talented!
I love every single design. They are a perfect way to be in the Christmas spirit without being too flashy! Which one is your favorite?
I feel like my style is slowly gravitating toward a more minimalistic type of style..or at least, I do like to admire how celebrities and fashion icons take on this trend and make it their own. A few fashion bloggers also have caught my eye creating minimalism to a whole other level of beauty. I love how 5 Inch and Up plays with proportions and layers, and how LOVE AESTHETICS creates lovely silhouettes with shapes alone. Their amazing eye for accessories also blows me away -- Ivania at one point made cuffs out of transparent perspex, and Sandra made hair ties out of napkin rings. Innovation and a beautiful eye for style..just thought of sharing with you two of my favorite bloggers I get inspiration from :).
