Spring Pastels & Monday Bloom

Forever 21 blazer, peach top, white shorts, summer look, walking with the babyI can’t even describe my love to soft colors like baby pink, peach and mint. They always make me feel so elegant and girly. I associate pastel colors with breeze spring days (wore this pink blazer here) that is why it was very so refreshing to wear them in this crazy humidity. Unfortunately I’m able to wear this blazer only early in the mornings otherwise I would melt:) How do you survive in this extreme heat?

Don’t forget to participate in the Link-up party and submit your look at the bottom of the post.

Hi everyone,

This illustration was inspired by my rose petal dress look from my previous post. I created this crazy looking bird because during the shoot one bird was following me around the garden, it was cute and funny at the beginning but then it became super annoying:)

Have you entered the Giveaway: beautiful silk scarf? Only 2 days left!!!!

Have a great day

Holiday Recipe: Peppermint Meringues

illustration created in Photoshop, CG art, cute illustration, cake illustration, holiday recipe illustration

Hello my friends, I’m so excited that my family from Russia is coming to visit me(we plan to spend couple days in DC, then New York and Las Vegas-sounds awesome right?:)I will be taking some time off from blogging, but you’ll see guests post from my beautiful friends, so don’t miss it!

Hello! My name is Stephanie and I write a blog called Pretty and Delectable. Elena invited me to share a holiday recipe with you and I decided on peppermint meringues… a light and simple treat that is perfect for not only the holidays but any time of the year.

holiday recipe, peppermint meringues

Peppermint Meringues (simplified version of this recipe)

3 large egg whites

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp peppermint extract

red gel food coloring

Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat liners. Heat egg whites and sugar in a heat proof bowl over simmering water, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove mixture from heat. Using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, mix on medium high speed until stiff peaks form. Mix in peppermint extract.

Draw lines of red food coloring inside of a pastry bag. Fill bag with egg white mixture and pipe mixture onto baking sheets using either a round (shown here) or star tip. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture.

Bake for 90-100 minutes until meringues are firm to the touch, making sure that the edges do not get browned. Cool completely before removing from baking sheets. Enjoy!
