Velvet Crush

It was love at first sight with this velvet ruffle skirt!! The luxe fabric, and fun ruffles are absolutely perfect for this time of the year!! I wore this outfit to a baby shower a few weeks ago, and received so many compliments on this skirt.  I also plan on wearing a sequin top with this skirt for a holiday party!!

Cheesecake!!

Hello December!! I’m starting December on a sweet note.  Holiday parties are just around the corner & I’m already thinking about all the desserts we will be devouring!! I always sign up to bring dessert because hey, why not?! Everyone likes dessert!! I made this cheesecake a few weeks ago, and it was a major hit with the family.  It’s super easy, and turns out perfect!! I followed the recipe by Kraft Recipes!!
