ice cream sandwich recipe!

Sunday, January 25, 2015






I am always one to order an ice cream sandwich at the ice cream truck, so when I got an ice cream maker a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to try to make some from scratch! After making  bunch of different ice cream flavors, including peppermint, peanut butter, and cookie dough, I decided that vanilla malted milk is the best. I decided to pair it with something a little funky- so, I made regular chocolate chip cookies but added crushed potato chips for a little salty crunch. Perfect for, like, whenever! 

Chocolate chip cookie w/ potato chips

- 1 cup of butter, softened 
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of brown sugar 
- 2 eggs 
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla 
- 3 cups of flour 
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt  
- half a bag of milk chocolate chips
- small bag of potato chips, crushed
- half a bag of mini semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a mixer, blend the softened butter with the two sugars. Add eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla. Add baking soda and salt. Stir in flour, then add the milk chocolate chips and crushed potato chips. With an ice cream scooper, place dough on cookie sheets lined with wax paper. Cook for 10 minutes. 

Vanilla malted milk ice cream 

- 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 3 cups of cream
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup of malted milk

With a mixer, blend the sugar and milk until the sugar dissolves. Slowly add the cream, then salt, vanilla, and malted milk. Pour into ice cream maker and follow the maker's timing instructions. I used a Cuisinart, which took 25 minutes to thicken.

Sandwich

Once ice cream has frozen overnight and the cookies have cooled, put one scoop on an upside-down cookie, and place a right side up cookie on top of the ice cream. At this point you can serve as is, or you can roll the sides of the sandwich in mini chocolate chips or any crushed candy. Enjoy, and don't forget to have napkins handy!

Dreamy Palettes

Monday, January 19, 2015
















Me: Topshop jacket and pearl necklace // Nastygal top // Madewell jeans // Givenchy choker // Sophie Hulme purse // Adidas x Opening Ceremony sneakers // Pixie Market shades 

Isabella: Zara jacket // Topshop shirt // Marc Jacobs skirt // Miu Miu sneakers // Chanel purse // Hermes and Topshop bracelets // flea market choker // Fred Segal daisy chain

Yesterday my friend Isabella ( izzaroze ) and I cruised around on Melrose- we visited the obligatory Alfred's coffee and Compartes Chocolate (peep the neon!), the new Nastygal location, and hit Ink.Sack for delicious sandwiches! We didn't coordinate outfits but we both showed up wearing very dreamy palettes of powder pink, white, gold, and pearlescent. Whoever said these colors were only for the Spring was wrong- Isabella and I kept it winterish with solids, sleeves, and close-toed shoes. No matter the time of year, wearing a dreamy palette is is super fun and super chic.

casual night out

Sunday, December 7, 2014





Topshop blazer // J.Crew x Public School trousers // Wolf tank // Noir chunky chain necklace // Givenchy choker // Adidas x Opening Ceremony sneakers // Proenza Schouler crossbody

Early last summer, I happened upon these amazing trousers! Not only do I love the way they fit, but they are extremely comfortable. I have been wearing them with button downs, big t-shirts, and sweaters, so when I went out with some friends this weekend, I decided to pair them with something a bit more fitting- a little black tank top! I NEVER wear tight tops, so this was something new to me. I really like the way the tight top compliments my oversized bottoms, and adding a cropped blazer completed the look. I went with light accessories and my favorite new pair of white sneakers (I forgot to get a close up of these, but they have an awesome fingerprint pattern on them)! It's definitely a great outfit for the transition from casual to a night out.
