Boho {Mint} Chic

Mint is not just a summer color. Mint can be a subtle pop of color for fall. I am in love with layering pastels with more neutral colors. What are your favorite fall colors?

Plaid Accents

I am a huge fan of the show, Pretty Little Liars and love the fashion in the show. Each character has her own style and I was excited to find these adorable plaid leggings on sales from the Pretty Little Liars line at Aeropostale. Since it has been very warm lately (until today!) I wore it with wedge sandals and an over-sized thin cardigan.

Do you watch Pretty Little Liars? Who is your favorite fashion icon from the show?

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

These were amazing. I got the recipe from mywholefoodlife.com. I shared the whip topping recipe as well but I cheated and used store-bought frosting and sprinkled some pumpkin pie spice on top. You can have your cupcake AND eat them too with these healthier-version treats!

For the cupcakes:
1 can pumpkin or 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
2 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
Pumpkin-Pie-Cupcakes

For the whip topping:
1 can full fat coconut milk
2 T maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla beans

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all the cupcake ingredients and blend until smooth. Spoon the mixture into lined muffin pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cupcakes cool before removing from the muffin liners. Since they are soft like pumpkin pie, put them in the fridge to store.

To make the whip topping, open up your can of coconut milk that has been in the fridge overnight. Scoop the fatty white part off and place in a mixing bowl with the vanilla and maple syrup. Use the whipping attachment and whip the coconut into a cream. Scoop a little on top of each muffin. Enjoy!

October Love

October is one of my favorite months and here is why:

1. Pumpkin decorating! My family and I had a fun fall-themed dinner with great food & a pumpkin painting party.

2. Jingles, my black cat. I swears she knows it’s her month. Lately she’s been meowing at all hours of the night.

3. Halloween, especially for dogs. Look at Zoey’s cute Halloween costume- she’s a cheerleader

4. Baking. Any and everything chocolate apple and cinnamon!

5. Burgundy clothing, especially these American Eagle pants.

6. Boots! ‘Nuff said. :)
