Parfaits…Simple, Yummy, Elegance

Raspberry-Mascarpone Whip Brownie Parfait

With the big “Day of Love” coming up, people are scrambling for ways to woo there significant others.  Dates are well thought out, engagement rings are being bought, poems are being written, and trips are being planned. If you are looking for an intimate, fun, and simple way to spend your time on Valentine’s Day, I have a suggestion.

Parfaits are so much fun to make, beautiful to look at, and even more exciting to eat. Parfaits are made by alternating layers of ice cream and fruit or syrup in tall narrow glasses. They are usually named after the syrup or topping. For example, a chocolate parfait has three scoops of vanilla or chocolate ice cream alternating with layers of chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.  With the rules of parfait making being so simple, you can go wild with variations, do whatever your imagination tells you to. Some of the more common things that are added to parfaits are granola, Jell-O, cereal, yogurt, and fresh or frozen fruit.

Here are some yummy delicious parfait ideas…

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” –1 Corinthians 13:13

Get The Look: Heartbreak 808

29 Jan

So the count down to lady-love is here… In a few days it will be February and that much closer to Valentines Day…. I know it is all about love and sharing it with your significant other. However if you are single and still on the prowl you can dress up like a sweet vixen and enjoy the day with your girls over drinks and dinner. I paired a cute, girly mid-waist skirt with a denim jacket to add that bit of edge, along with a Moschino cheap and chic red heart tee-shirt, some fab Louboutins and vintage Chanel jewelry. I know it is designer over-load but all these looks can be found through more affordable retailers like Forever 21 and H&M. The shoes on the other hand will be hard to duplicate but Aldo generally has a few fashion forward finds. The hairstyle I pegged with this look is luxurious, sassy, full curls and I like the fact the front is a little pinned to the side adding that sexy pin-up girl flare. Ladies just because you don’t have a significant other on Valentines Day doesn’t mean you can’t dress-up and feel good!!!!!
