it’s always fun to change the look and feel of our house as the seasons change, especially when the cold season is right around the corner. I always plan on making some subtle changes. today I used some of my colorful, cozy and warm Accent pillows to change the look of the living room, the sitting room, and the kitchen. As the weather gets colder we spend more time indoors, and it is nice to have soft blankets, fury pillows, for those moments when we are ready to sit, and relax.

Cooking and baking has always been a fun hobby that I have enjoyed immensely. I am an average cook that loves to experiment with cooking healthy meals. I enjoy baking, just simply because I am addicted to chocolate, and for me a lovely pastry with coffee, and tea is a trip to heaven and back☺️
This year, more than ever in my life 😥 I have been cooking and baking for my family, and now for holidays I have decided to bake new goodies and find my new favorites.
I started with :
Pizzelle 👩🏻🍳 every Christmas we enjoy eating these lovely lightly sweet giant snow flakes all day long when we travel to see grandparents. This Christmas I had to bake our own batch 😳 I pulled out my pizzelle maker which I had received years ago as a Christmas gift, and used grandmas’s recipe. After a couple of tries they came out perfect snow flakes 😋
Italian wedding cookies 👩🏻🍳 they are made with crushed almonds, and coated with powder sugar, and look like small snow balls. They are beautiful to look at, and are lightly sweet, and believe me when I say 🤣 you can’t stop at just one.
Cranberry bars 👩🏻🍳 using leftover cranberry sauce from thanksgiving meal, I baked these thick delicious bars with two flaky layers of dough, cushioning a layer of my chunky cranberry sauce, and a layer of walnuts. I am already thinking of making more of these bars with almonds. This is my absolute new favorite 👍
Peppermint bars 👩🏻🍳 I have always bought them as gifts for friends, and loved having them during holidays. This year never found the time to purchase them on time, so I decided to make some. Couldn’t perfectly layer the white chocolate over the dark chocolate, but the result was a swirl of dark and white with crushed peppermints that made little ones very happy to crush and spread over the baking dish. Easy, fun to make, and very delicious. Next time I will make it thinner, so it would be easier to cut, and I have more to eat👍

I love long walks with or without my music playing in my ears. Walking with my family is a different walk, since I tend to walk slower and usually get engage in some kind of conversation.
This year I have paid More attention to my surroundings. I am guessing with dozens of new constructions I am more aware that the green land around where we live and walk is starting to shrink. My green and hilly views are turning into constructions sites, that are growing in number every month. How many mixed used structures do we need? This tends to be the trend in our city!!
My pictures of fall trees are beginning to mean more than capturing the foliage this year. I find myself thinking this year might me the last year I am at aww of their beauty and sense of forever strength.
I hope I am wrong, but for now I am taking as many pictures as I can. To remember how beautiful natures is, and how much we all need to be surrounded by its beauty.
You are in luck because every style is in for fall & winter. Oversized or cropped sweaters, slim cut cashmeres, and chunky popcorn knits are also very in for this winter.
I personally love big cable sweaters (sort of a fisherman’s look) and when I need to dress up a bit, a very thin cashmere keeps me warm, and I also add layers for a more stylish look.
Long sweaters are always stylish since you can wear them with leggings, wide-legged pants, or skirts.
Cropped sweaters are a cool look and it is still in for this winter and a much better look to me unless your belly button is peeking out.
Colors are also a very important aspect of clothing, so remember rust colors are in this year.
