This Week's Obsessions...

Take a look at the trends I am obsessed with this week!

Street style looks from Milan Fashion Week...







CC creams...
AA (anti-aging) + BB (beauty balm) = CC (color correcting)


Elaine Turner...
A Houston based designer specializing in handbags and shoes, Elaine Turner has boutiques throughout Texas, one in Tennessee and sells in stores nationwide.  A New York based boutique is in the works.  I was fortunate to attend the December opening of a new store in The Woodlands, Texas.  The product quality and detailing are fabulous!  Website ordering is available :)  Take a look at a couple of the new arrivals that I am coveting...
Marci Butter Nubuck Leather Heel   
    Bella Clutch - Gold Fleck Cork with Studs ...love the cork natural material for spring!

Numbers on clothes...


Fonuts...
"A doughnut that is baked and/or steamed, never fried" ~ faux donut. 
Flavors include vanilla latte, caramel apple, peanut butter and jelly, chocolate coconut, pumpkin, lemon, maple bacon (yes, you read that correctly), banana chocolate, and chorizo cheddar (you read that correctly too).  Check out the entire range of flavors: Flavors | Fonuts .  These are currently only sold in LA and not available for shipping (darn), but check out the recipe below to try them at home. Hmmmm, maybe this weekend?


Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Fonuts
Makes twelve
Ingredients
1½ c. white rice flour
1½ c. almond meal
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. organic cane sugar
8 very ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ c. refined coconut oil or other oil
¼ c. chocolate chips, or to taste
1. In large mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, mix bananas and wet ingredients. (Note: If using coconut oil, use a water bath to melt the oil.)
2. Combine dry and wet mixes together.
3. Fold in chocolate chips.
4. Pour batter into two nonstick, six-cavity donut pans.
5. Bake at 350° for approximately 15 minutes until golden brown. (When touching the center, the dough should bounce back.)


My new Chicnova top...
I just ordered this top with a giftcard won in a Chicnova giveaway hosted by Lucie at Style Without LimitsThis is my first Chicnova item.  Looking forward to receiving it :)  Have you purchased from Chicnova?
