Outfits File: All-black in Coated Denim

I've partnered up with Neiman Marcus to share two of my closet staples, and to kick off this collaboration I'm sharing an all-black outfit with one of my favorite Fall go-to's: coated denim. I really love how you can get the leather look while being able to rock it all year round without breaking a sweat and the bank :) Plus, in my opinion, it adds just the right amount of edginess and it certainly takes up your look a notch or two ;)

Last Fall I wore these non-stop (highly recommend them!), so I was happy to pick up a new pair from Neiman Marcus to replace them (well, sort of, because I still wear them). They have reeeeally good options so it was a tough decision, but since Current Elliot jeans usually fit pretty well I went for these ;) They are super stretchy and comfy, and don't they look like real leather? I definitely recommend them :)

Wearing: Ray-Ban Original Aviators / Black Label Peplum Top (old, similar) / Smoking Blazer (similar, similar) / Rebecca Minkoff Leopard Bag (old and can't find a pink leopard one but here's a pink one, and a leopard one) / Current Elliot Soho Coated Stiletto Pants / Black pumps (similar, similar)

Here's how a quick change of shoes and accessories gives you different look ;)

Great finds: Black, gold, lilac

Food File: Wholewheat & Quinoa Carrot Muffins

A couple of weeks ago I decided to give this recipe from Love & Lemons a try and it's so good and so easy to make (no mixer required!) that it has become my staple. Makes a great healthy snack for kids and by adding some veggies (I have done it with carrots and zucchini) I'm super pleased to see my little guy enjoy them ;)

Here's the original recipe from Love & Lemons and my substitutions:
. 1 cup spelt or wholewheat flour (I used wholewheat)
. 3/4 cup gluten-free or all-purpose flour (I used quinoa flour)
. 2 teaspoons baking powder
. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
. 1/4 teaspoon salt
. 1 apple (I substituted with 1 cup of shredded carrots)
. 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (I substituted with raisins)
. 1 cup almond milk (I used 1% milk)
. 1 egg
. 1/3 cup white or brown sugar (I substituted with coconut palm sugar)
. 1/4 cup coconut or canola oil (I used coconut oil)

What to do:
. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 12-cup muffin tin (the recipe will yield 10 muffins)
. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, sugar, and oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined.
. Add the carrots and raisins and pour the batter on muffin tin.
. Bake for 15 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out dry and clean.

My life file: Jewels, bags, healthy snacks

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend, I had a productive one and in part I owe it to doing groceries on Saturday night, yeap, wild Saturday night plans huh? ;) Well, it was the best decision ever, so empty and so pleasant! As long as I don't have plans on Saturdays I think I'll be doing it again :)

Besides being super productive over the weekend, I received some beautiful pieces from the first BaubleBar customer bartender collection and not only I love them, but I really really love that BaubleBar is doing such a nice gesture by donating 100% of the proceeds to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You can read (and shop) about this special collection here :)

Outfits File: Delicate and Edgy

Last Tuesday I had an event at Colette hosted by my girl Jenny and when I received this stunner in the mail that same day I just couldn't resist to wear it right away! Isn't it gorgeous? You can never go wrong with a statement necklace to elevate your look and I think it was exactly what I needed for my delicate but edgy look, right? ;)

Food File: Healthy Chocolate Cups

I made these last week for a girls night-in, and they were quite a success. They are healthy, gluten-free, and delicious, so what's not to love? If you make these, please don't forget to top with whipped coconut milk, not doing so would be like eating pasta without parmesan cheese, if you know what I mean ;)

What you need:
- 5 medjool dates
- 1 small avocado
- 1/4 cup hazelnut meal
- 3/4 coconut milk
- 6 tbsp. cocoa
- 1 tbsp. vanilla
- 1 tbsp. raw honey

What to do:
For the crust, I used this recipe, which has become my new go-to recipe for crusts, so easy and no butter involved.
For the chocolate part, just place all ingredients in the food processor and press until smooth. Pour over crusts and refrigerate until ready to serve. I placed mine in the freezer and took out 20 min or so before serving.
Once ready to serve top with whipped coconut milk (recipe here) and some toasted coconut or hazelnut shavings ;)
