Christmas Look

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. Mine sure was, and I had too much food, but everything was so delicious... This was my look on Xmas day, hope you like it. And I also wanna show you our table setting. My mom put so much effort and good taste into it. Now I'm back to work, but just for today and tomorrow. Then I will be on vacation until Jan 6th. I can't wait! I will probably go to the mountains and ski and relax. I wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year full of Love! See ya in January.

Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Ciao! Today is the last day at the office before Holiday break and to celebrate Christmas with my coworkers I made carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! Here is the recipe:
Ingredients for the cupcakes (makes about 25):
240 gr freshly grated carrots
100 gr white sugar
100 gr brown sugar
210 gr flour
3 eggs
150 ml olive oil (not extra-virgin)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch of salt
vanilla extract
for the frosting:
50 gr butter
315 gr confectioner's sugar
135 gr cream cheese (I used Philadelphia)
Pre-heat the oven at 175°C
Mix all ingredients together very well

Fill the cupcakes liners about 2/3

Put in the oven for about 12/13 min. Check with a stick if they are cooked inside, it has to come out clean.

Put the cupcakes on a wire rack to cool completely, and start making the frosting combining all the ingredients together and mixing with a spoon.

When the cupcakes are completely cooled you can frost them!

Here they are! Merry Christmas to you and your families! I will be back on dec. 29th.
Love, Fede

Put Many Rings On It

Hi! Last week I took advantage of an offer on Forever 21 website and bought many different rings. One is very small and has the shape of an arrow, I love it because it's very simple but still very cute. Then I got a set of stackable rings which you can wear all together. And last but not least a bigger golden ring. Hope you like them! The manicure is made with Essie's Forever Yummy, which is perfect for Christmas!

Grey Skirt

Hi! I want to show you my last office look. I adore that skirt! I got it last year from Banana Republic and I've worn it multiple times. I chose to stile it with high heel booties but I think it looks very good also with flat leather boots. What do you think?

A Little Bit of Red (Cyber Monday savings)

Ciao! Yesterday it was Cyber Monday! Did you take advantage of the many discounts that you could find online? I sure did! I was thinking about Christmas and this year I really wanted to wear something red but I realized that I didn't have any red clothes... So I cruised the web and found a nice and fluffy red sweater on H&M and I ordered it, it was 15% off. I will post more pics when I get it. How would you style it? I was thinking a black mini-skirt. What did you guys buy on Cyber Monday?
Thanks for reading!

Oxford Trend!

Hi and Happy Black Friday! Have a great day of shopping! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with all your loved ones. I have relatives in the US and we texted yesterday, I miss them so much! Today's look is all about Oxford shoes, I love them because they are comfortable but still they give a special touch to an outfit. I found them in a little shop in Milan, they are not from a famous brand but you can find Oxfords everywhere, even at Zara. Hope you like the look.
Have a great weekend!

- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 230 gr of sugar
- 180 gr of butter
- 2 eggs

Perfect Waves

Hi guys, happy monday! This post is about hair. I always struggle with my hair, because it's curly and frizzy, so it's really difficult to keep them in place during weeks like these when it's always raining. If I keep it curly it gets so frizzy, I can't stand it. So I have to blow dry it straight using a round brush and the dryer. But I don't like it too straight and I want to add volume and flowy-ness, Victoria's Secret Angel style lol. So I use a curling iron on each section of hair and this is the final result, do you like it? This way my hair looks polished and it doesn't get frizzy. Remember to use argan oil to give a little shiny and silky finish.
