Plum Torte


My mom has made this plum torte many times over the past few years, however, this was my first time making it myself. I must say, with only a few steps, a masterpiece of sweetness is created from these ingredients. This torte is so light and fluffy that there is a possibility that you will end up eating the entire thing yourself!



Sweet Moments

001A new favorite to enjoy with dinner

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far! My past week has been pretty productive with my search for a new job. But these are a few things that I have enjoyed over the past few days.

I think a blazer can dress up any outfit. No matter if it’s a pair of cutoffs or jeans, it has that ability to give an ensemble that structured and put together look. Paired with high heels and a defined bag, I think this look gives new meaning to the plain and simple shorts and a t-shirt.


Patterns of Fall

Fall Pattern TrendsPatterns that I love for the fall are leopard prints, plaid, and polka dots. Very vintage kinds of patterns that can be perfectly updated for 2013.
