I'm all for complex desserts with interesting flavor profiles and combinations, but once in awhile it's nice to go back to the simple things. Amy's Bread is a bakery here in New York that makes some incredible treats and one of my favorites is her classic pink cake. It's an old fashioned vanilla cake with a trademark vanilla pink buttercream that is so simple but SO good. I found the recipe online and woke up a few weekends ago with the sudden urge to bake something really decadent. It turned out pretty damn well if I do say so myself. I posted about the best chocolate cake in the world, well this is the best vanilla cake in the world! Decorated with sugar flowers that were sent to me in a birthday package from Miette bakery in San Francisco (thanks, Stella).

I have to admit, I didn't own a single basic long sleeve shirt until recently when StyleMint sent me one of their great tops. Yes, I believe that basics are essentials in anyone's closet but they're always something I overlook while shopping so I was thrilled when I received my "Hudson" shirt. The loose trapeze fit is so comfortable and I love that the back is longer than the front. I now have the perfect piece for layering in this cold weather.

You join, take a quick quiz to determine which styles will be best suited for you and each month new styles will be picked especially for you.
