Sunday Funday Linkup – Best Of The Week

brocadeSkirtGraphicTee

Sandy à la Mode gives us fashion greatness in a graphic tee paired with a gorgeous pink and gold brocade skirt, styled with a dash of Christian Louboutin and Chanel. You have to see all of her amazing pics at the Utah State Capitol. What a gorgeous backdrop for a super fun and flirty outfit! Thanks so much for sharing your #FundayLinkup with our readers, Sandy!

Fab Fatale’s Linkup Favs

It was nearly impossible to narrow my favs down to only 5, but here’s what really caught my eye this week:

  • I need this entire Mila Kunis look for less by Wear It For Less, in particular those chambray cigarette pants!
  • I’m always looking to add new cuteness to my kitchen, and I love these colorful ceramic measuring cups shared by An Education In Domestication!
  • It’s been a long time since I’ve had breakfast in bed and I love A Peachy Sonder’s 10 ideas for a perfect (and clean!) breakfast in bed. Mother’s day is coming up, hint hint to the husband ;)
  • I have a thing for trench coats, especially for spring, and I’m loving this one styled by RD’s Obessions over a beautiful bandage dress.
  • Straight A Style is featuring spring neutrals in a super flirty and fun crochet beige and ivory dress and a maroon fedora. Her look is vacation perfection!

Friday’s Fab Five – Nutella Recipes

my top 5 fav nutella recipes, featuring nutella strawberry banana crepe pastry cups

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to another edition of Friday’s Fab Five. This week’s five is all about Nutella recipes I’ve either tried and love, or recipes that are on my “to try” list! If you know me, then you know I am ADDICTED to Nutella, so I can’t wait to break open a jar this weekend and come up with another chocolate hazelnut masterpiece.

1. This is my all time favorite “make it for ever guest that hasn’t tried it yet” Nutella dessert. It’s what my sis came up with to mock our favorite crepes, but she used puffed pastry in a muffin tin filled with Nutella, strawberries, bananas, whip cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

my top 5 fav nutella recipes, featuring nutella swirl bread

2. This Nutella braided bread is beautiful, and hopefully tastes as delicious as it looks. I can’t wait to give it a try!

my top 5 fav nutella recipes, featuring heart shape nutella french toast sandwich

3. Oh my heart! Does it get any better than heart french toast layered with Nutella and strawberries? I’ll be sure to let you know ;) This would be perfect for Valentine’s day breakfast, or any day, really!

my top 5 fav nutella recipes, featuring nutella icebox cake

4. I am so in love with this Nutella icebox cake recipe. It’s from the Food Network magazine and it’s amazing – delicious and an impressive presentation!

my top 5 fav nutella recipes, featuring nutella fudgesicles

5. I am wild about fudgesicles, so I’m wondering if Nutella takes the fudgesicle to the next level!?!?! My kid would LOVE these!

Do you have any fun Nutella recipes you keep in regular rotation, or see any in the five you’d like to try? I hope you’ll share below!

Sunday Funday Linkup – Best Of The Week

blackJumpsuitFormalWedding

The Real Arnolds black tie post couldn’t have been better timed because I am in major need of outfit inspiration for a formal wedding I’ll be attending soon. I’d thought about a black jumpsuit for the occasion and now I’m sold on the idea based on Amy Ann’s styling of this piece for her husband’s black tie work party. Thanks so much for sharing your black jumpsuit look with our readers in our #FundayLinkup, Amy Ann!

Fab Fatale’s Linkup Favs

It was nearly impossible to narrow my favs down to only 5, but here’s what really caught my eye this week:

  • For some reason, I’ve really been getting into blush lately, more so than ever, and Talker Blogger has a great review and swatches of Nars Dual Intensity Blush in Adoration. I love just a hint of a bright pink blush. Lovely!
  • No Small Life offers up 3 ways to wear camo and still be girly. The sequin undershirt is my fave!
  • Ohhhh this recipe is speaking to me on a Suday morning! You have to check out Day 7 Kitchen’s Korean Piri Piri steak and potatoes recipe topped with a sunny side up egg!
  • Now this is how I would wear pops of neon, if I had the nerve. Maybe I’ll take a cue from Fashion Fairy Dust and go for it, with her neon pink heels and neon statement necklace!
  • I am notorious for wearing sheer tops, mostly chiffon because it doesn’t wrinkle {score}! The Modest Budgetbelle shows a pile of ways to pull off the look!
  • Sooooo, I know I should only be including 5, but I couldn’t help myself {and these are in no particular order}. Style Diary by Osy should be a model with that smile and her “Celebrating in Colors” outfit is amazing! I’m wondering if I can recolorize the crochet trim lace top and flared midi skirt for my formal evening wedding?

Please check out the Bon Bon Rose Girls’ and The Budget Babe’s favs of the week for more inspiration!

The Saturday Steal – Valentino Rockstud Look For Less

i found a look for less of every studded sandal in the Valentino Rockstud collection, including the ballerina pointed to flats, cage flats, cage heels, and gladiator sandals!

In my search to find a Valentio Rockstud gladiator look for less, I came across a look for less of the entire Rockstud collection, including the gladiators, ballerina flats, cage flats, and the cage heels. I am so in love with this entire collection, but can’t afford the designer price tags, so I’m so happy I found a few steals, all available in a variety of colors. Check out the links below to find each Valentino Rockstud look for less.

Valentino Rockstud Inspriation

The Valentino Rockstud is a fav of most celebrities, but those that keep a few in their regular rotation include Alesandra Ambrosia, Jennifer Lopez, and Ashley Tisdale.
