This may be the most comfy hat I have ever owned. Anyone who lives in the cold weather knows that keeping your head and ears warm during the colder seasons is crucial. I will definitely be taking this cap with me to my trip to New York City coming up, and I know I will be getting a lot of use out of it! Not to mention, it is great if you are having a bad hair day! It’s a win-win situation.
Finally, I have my Christmas tree up and lit. I just love having Christmas decor around my apartment. I wish I could leave it up year round. My tree fits perfectly in the corner of my living room. I may do a Christmas decor post, what do you think?
I will talk to you all soon!

Baby blue has never really been a color I gravitated for. To be quite honest, baby blue clothing always reminded me of Sean John outfits that I never really liked seeing. Until I came across this beautiful shade of baby blue. It is like an ice blue, if I had to call it something and I LOVE it! It is almost gray, but not quite, and it is oh so cozy! If you are in the market for a cozy sweater (and scarf for that matter), be sure to head to Gap and check out their fall clothing.
I hope you all are having a wonderful week and I will chat with you all soon!

What better way to dress for fall than adding a moto jacket to your look? It instantly adds an edge to your outfit, and is definitely a staple piece that every woman should have in their closet. Also, plaid has been one of my favorite looks to wear as of late. It is an oldie but goodie and never goes out of style in my book. I think that plaid can be worn all year round with skirts, shorts, and jeans. You just have to alter the color scheme of your plaid shirt to the season and you will be good to go!
I am so sorry I waited so long to post this look (because I gave a sneak peek on my IG a few days ago), but I have had finals to complete, and thank goodness, they are done! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and I will talk to you soon!
Top: Gap, Fur Vest: Target (Try this), Jeans: H&M, Boots: Report from Nordstrom Rack, Necklace: Purple Peridot
If you follow me on Instagram (@bisousbrittany), you would have seen that I professed my love for my new fur vest from Target. Ok, let me just go on record and say that Target’s clothing is amazing now! I truly enjoy going to shop there for clothing. I went to pick up some last minute things before I went to Tennessee, and obviously came home with way more because I just wanted everything I saw. The sweaters that they have right now… so cute! And don’t even get me started on this beautiful faux fur vest I am wearing.
To be quite honest, I never have been the biggest fan of fur vests because I thought that looked too over the top. But now, I am a convert. And I highly recommend that if you are in the market for a faux fur vest, go check out Target.
I hope you all are having a great week!

Even though Miami barely sees any type of winter weather, the second it gets chilly here (like today at 60 degrees), everyone breaks out their jackets and scarves. I would like to think of this as my winter white ensemble. Obviously I could never wear this outfit up north, but for Miami, this is pretty winter-y! Like I said on my Instagram (@bisousbrittany), who actually listens to the “no white after Labor Day anyways”. Winter white is THE color for winter time. I love shades of white for winter!
What are your favorite winter trends this season? I hope all of you up north are bundling up and are keeping warm!
Sending you lots of Miami sunshine during these colder months!

I was so excited when Le Motto contacted me to wear one of their fabulous tee’s because I loved the meaning behind their brand. What I love most about Le Motto is that they stand for such a great cause that is so relevant to our lives today. Their motto is “Because words do matter”, and I think we can all relate to that statement. At some point or another, we have all been affected in a good or bad way by the things people say to us. Le Motto encourages us to use positive words rather than those that can hurt others, and I absolutely love that! Each day, we should try to say words of encouragement and positivity, so that we spread love and not hate.
So today and moving forward, I challenge all of you to be conscious of what you say about other and to others, because words do matter! Also, I want to give a special thank you to Le Motto for being a brand that stands for something positive and is sharing their motto with others through beautiful clothing, because we can all use a little more gratitude and less attitutde.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
I had picked apples at the pumpkin patch during Halloween time, and knew I wanted to bake something with the apples! So I began my search on Pinterest and finally found a delicious Apple Coffee Cake recipe. Just to let you know before hand, I did not create this recipe. I am simply sharing with you all a fabulous holiday recipe that you can share with all of your family and friends!Here are my beautiful fresh apples from upstate New York! They were perfectly ripe for this recipe. I mean how beautiful is that red? Almost too pretty to eat!I peeled three apples and cut them up into small pieces, then placed them in a bowl for later. Find the full recipe down below!
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large (or 3 small) tart apples (such as honeycrisp, granny smith, or pink lady), peeled and chopped
- 8 Tablespoons butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Spread half the batter into a thin layer at the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the apple chunks evenly over the batter. Top with about 1 cup of the crumble mixture. Spread the remaining batter over top followed by the rest of the crumble.
- Bake the mixture for 35-40 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. If the top gets too brown, cover with foil for the last 10-15 minutes.
- While the coffee cake bakes, whisk together the powdered sugar, cider, milk, and salt. Serve the cake warm with the cider drizzle. This recipe can be made up to two days in advance. Store in an airtight container or in the pan with saran wrap on top.
Please note that the batter is quite thick and will have to be spread thin to fit the 9 x 13 inch pan. It will rise in the oven.
And here is the final product! I have to tell you, I brought this crumb cake into work for my coworkers and I also packed some for my boyfriends coworkers, and I received rave reviews! So for the holidays, give this recipe a try! A special thank you to the NeighborFoodBlog for this delicious recipe. Be sure to visit their site!
