- Not your usual Stuffed Strawberries- And A Winner

Hi all, before I announce the winner of the Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway I want to share with you my version of Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.

My husband and I were invited to a dinner party last night. The host asked me to bring some kind of dessert. However, I was super busy so  I had to pull a rabbit from the hat, but instead I pulled some ricotta cheese, honey, and a lot of strawberries from the fridge. This easy and simple recipes made me look like the greatest chef in the world (well I’d like to think so.) So here is the secret:
You will need only  4 Ingredients: Strawberries of course, Ricotta Cheese, Grounded Pistachios, and Honey.
  • Get as many strawberries as you want and core them with a thin apple peeler or any other similar kitchen tool. I used a tool that I usually use to core zucchinis.
  • Use your judgments to fill the cored strawberries with the enough amount of Ricotta Cheese.
  • Dip them in grounded pistachios .
  • I used honey as my sweetener but any other syrup would taste as good as well.
You are done. Yes, your are done. Look at these delicious photos if you don’t believe me.





and here is me so happy with my accomplishment :)



And now the winner for the Amazing Giveaway is :

- Master Bedroom Reveal

Finally our master bedroom is finished, I cant say finished but at least I can share some pictures with you . I took these picture about a month now but I didn't have any free time to edit them.

In this room you will see some familiar furniture pieces if you are already a follower but now you will see them were they belong :)


As you can see the color palette is Black, White, Silver and Purple. I changed this rug to a purple one but I didn't take any new pictures, I will soon update these.

- Filoli Tour and a Winner

Hello all. Before I announce the name of the winner of the $30 gift card from Fashion to Figure, I want to  share with you some picture of the Filoli Gardens in The Bay Area.

My friend was visiting from Lebanon so my husband gave me the idea of  showing her Filoli. Before I share with you my favorite pictures that I've taken during the trip, I want to give a brief introduction about these beautiful gardens.

"Located 30 miles south of San Francisco, Filoli is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century. Whether enjoying its beauty or pursuing its educational opportunities, we invite you to explore this cherished community resource." (Source: http://www.filoli.org/)

Here are the pictures. Oh, BTW the winners name is announced at the bottom. Well, I guess you have to scroll down all my photos :p

- Cutting Edge Stencils- Giveaway

Cutting Edge Stencils is an emerging company that offers a great variety of adorable stencils. I've been "stalking" this company on every blog in the hopes of winning a giveaway. I, however, with my luck was simply dreaming. Now to my surprise, when I opened my email last week I saw an email from guess who? you guessed it: "Cutting Edge Stencils" approached me so I can review one of their products and offer a giveaway. My answer was "OH, yah baby...with PLEASURE."

The following are some of the main reasons I would use a Cutting Edge Stencil on my walls rather than wallpaper:

1- Stencils are cheaper.
2- They are easier to apply.
3- You can change styles whenever you feel like it.
4- We are renting and it is a well worth investment to make my rental a fabulous dwelling space.
5- You can customize the color.
6- Finally, Cutting Edge Stencils offer AMAZING designs.

Here are few of my favorite designs:





And I found this video tutorial to help me with my first stenciling project.

As for the giveaway, I am quoting the Cutting Edge Stencils' agent: "we offer one stencil of any value up to $50 as a prize for the winner (US residents only please)– they can choose their favorite from our site – and we’ll ship it for free."
