I was inspired by the Ralph Lauren Rugby collection to put together this outfit. I wanted to wear one of my new Tally Weijl knits and this was the perfect way. You can see the collection here.
Also, lovely Artemis (from Beauty with Artemi) asked me to do a bright lips look, so that’s what I did. I kept the rest of the face almost nude this time. Hope you like it honey, although the photos don’t do justice to that super bright fuscia lipstick!

Now, on to xmas baking:
For me, there’s no Christmas without baking traditional desserts and decorating the house. My house is too small for a tree (I like huge trees so no luck!) and I just put a few ornaments here and there to decorate it. But every year I bake the following traditional Greek desserts: melomakarona, kourampiedes and vasilopita. This year I decided against making the second (kourampiedes), because it’s extremely fattening and I don’t really like it anyway. So today it was melomakarona day! I don’t know if any of you non-greeks have ever tasted them, but I can assure you they are delicious! And I like the fact that there isn’t any butter or eggs in the recipe.
Here they are, ready to be baked:
After baking them, they have to be left to cool and then be dipped into honey sirup (which is hot):
After “bathing” in honey sirup, they’re sprinkled with walnuts and served:
They're so yummy and I couldn't resist nibbling while placing them on the plate!
What is your traditional dessert that you like to make? Oh, and if you'd like the recipe for melomakarona let me know!
