Breakfast at Fayme's in the Kitchen; Blondies

We all know how we LOVE brownies, it's a fact! But what about the blondes? I have been making blondies the past few weeks and loving them! They are versatile too! You can add dried cranberries for a little zing or pistachios and white chocolate chips...yum! However I made mine with espresso salt and pecans. 
So let's put this never ending discussions to an end, try these blondes and give an opinion; Brownies or Blondies??  
What you need (for +/- 12)
-3/4c all purpose flower
-1/4tsp baking powder
-1/4tsp salt (I used 1/2tsp espresso salt) 
-3/4c packed brown sugar
-1/4c melted butter
-1 egg
-1/2tsp vanilla extract 
-Nuts, dries cranberries or chocolate chips (optional)

1. In a medium bowl mix first (all dry) 3 ingredients 
2. In bigger bowl mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, when mixed well add nuts/cranberries/choco chips
4. Pop in the oven 180*C/350*F for 15-20 mins
Et Voila! Your Blondies are done!

Black and White

I'm obsessing over the over-the-knee pencil skirt trend! Wear it more grungy with a boxy cropped knit top and ankle length boots. Since my booties are cut-out boots I paired them with a little black and white graphic print sock with a pop of yellow.

Charm is the new Stud

1. Phillip Lim, 2&3. Pixie Market ("here" and "here")
We have seen studs, studs and more studs over the past year and I'm sure we are not done with them yet, but there is a new hot stuff on the racks and it is charms. Beware or the embellished, bejeweled and charming garments this season. Even more fun is to DIY a piece, below you see how to...

Layering Jackets

I have been into layering my jackets. The top, wool-like oversized blazer is not warm at all (it does not have lining), but paired with a little leather jacket, it keep warm just fine. I like to peek out the sleeves and the collar of the leather jacker, it's allowed to show your layers.

All Them Diamonds Aren't Gold

This tee is one of my souvenirs from London. I got it at Sunday-up Market , it is a stone wash, designed by locals and printed locally in London. They had many cool shirts and it was hard to choose, however I went with the diamond. Those are supposedly a girls best friend anyway right?
