Inspiration: Epic Celebrity Halloween Costumes

20 Oct

It’s that time of the year again, when the pressure of finding the perfect Halloween outfit starts to hit. Not sure about you, but I really like to make a statement on Halloween. So, I like to seek inspiration from Celebrity costumes since they always take their disguises to a new level! While some of their ideas might be a little ‘out there’ and could only work for a crazy party at Heidi and Seals’ old house, others are totally do-able! Check out some of the looks our favourite celebrities have dared to sport on Halloween and what we have to say about them!

Gwen Stephani as Cinderella

Gwen made sure every detail is covered when she chose to be Cinderella and she looked stunning! However, we don’t know if this costume is sexy enough for us.

Paris Hilton in Native American Costume

Paris as Native Indian or Pocahontas?? That headpiece is so hot!…but the whole look is very revealing might be a little too sexy for us! After all we live in Canada and its getting way too cold to wear a bikini to a club!

Rihanna as Tigger

We love RiRi’s Halloween Style! As per usual, she looks so awesome!

Lea Michelle as Black Swan

Black Swan was a common sight from Halloween 2011! This is so last year, but the idea is to choose a costume that’s PopCulture – KATNISS from Hunger Games ANYONE???

Lo Bosworth Hallowee Costume Little Red Riding Hood

This is so cute! We love the flowers and the basket details Lo added to her Halloween look!

Lauren Conrad Flapper Girl Halloween Costume

This is our all time favourite Halloween look! Its timeless and classy!

Kim Kardashian in Super Woman Halloween Costume

Kim is a perfect Super Woman! She exudes so much confidence flaunting her curves in this sexy costume! You go girl!

Here are some celebrity looks that will make you LOL!

Heidi Klum as bodies costume

Heidi Klum and Seal in their Ape Costumes

Heidi takes her Halloween costumes very seriously!!

Snooki in Leopard Halloween Costume

While Snooki dresses up as a Leopard Girl, there are hundred’s of girls dressing up as her regular self!

The trick is to find something that will ‘wow’ all your friends. So whether you want to dress up like a giant ape or a little red riding hood, make sure you go all out and don’t leave ANY details unattended!

We’re still figuring out what to wear, but hope that this serves up some inspiration for you guys! Stay tuned for a post on our Halloween Ideas and Good Luck finding yours!

Spotted: Olivia Palermo at London Fashion Week

18 Oct

Olivia Palermo’s style is consistently exquisite and unapologetically chic, which is why we have a major girl crush on her. We love it spotting Olivia because her outfits never cease to inspire us. You can imagine just how honoured we felt that Olivia picked to wear one of the newest additions at Pavlyn - BB Dakota’s David Cable Knit Sweater – to the MULBERRY show at London Fashion Week.  Staying true to fall colours, Olivia combined the camel hair coloured sweater with a pair of burgundy jeans (trend alert!) and pulled the look together with a pair of pumps and vintage earrings which she clipped to the neckline. And of course, in Olivia-like fashion, she’s combined affordable fashion with high-end pieces, making this sweater an affordable piece in every girl’s closet. The BB Dakota sweater is now available at Pavlyn Boutique, retailing at $95.

And for another style inspiration, we love the way Olivia dressed up a similar cable knit sweater with a leather mini skirt (trend alert again!), for a knock-out outfit! Achieve the same look with BB Dakota’s David Cable Knit sweater  and the Kerry Leather Mini Skirt, both at Pavlyn Boutique.

Spotted: Kourtney Kardashian in Blaque Label Yellow Skirt!

17 Oct

Kourtney Kardashian was recently spotted in a Blaque Label’s Full Circle Skirt in bright yellow, an outfit nothing less than perfect for the sunshine state where she is currently filming Kim and Kourtney Take Miami. Offsetting the bright yellow with a pair of royal blue pumps and a print t-shirt to match, Kourtney looks ready for a day in the sun. Looking to get Kourtney’s South Beach look? This fabulous Blaque Label skirt is available at Pavlyn Boutique (and its even on sale!!!), and pair it with your favourite tee and a pair of pumps.

Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes Recipe from France!

14 Oct

It’s true that Chocolate Lava cakes are every girls guilty pleasure! After all, who doesn’t love a perfectly soft and warm dark chocolate dessert served with some vanilla ice cream and strawberries? Before we knew how easy Lava cakes were to make, we always considered them a delicacy, only to be enjoyed at restaurants, such as Terroni’s. Until a couple of years ago, we met an incredible guy from Paris, France who invited us for dinner and surprised us with Fondant au Chocolat! After begging him for his mothers recipe, he finally sent it to us and now we’re sharing the goodness with the rest of the world!

Ladies, prepare to indulge…

Molten Lava Cake Recipe for 2 people: 

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe

Ingredients: 

1 egg
25 g of sugar power
15 g of flour
50 g of butter
50 g of dark chocolate

 

 

 

 

Instructions: 

Note: Prepare this right before desert time. The ingredients should not be left to sit after they have been mixed.

  1. Preheat the oven for 200°C.
  2. Mix the egg and sugar in a salad bowl with a mixer until white and fluffy (This is the key of the recipe, you really have to mix the egg and sugar well and for a long time until its hardened.
  3. Add the flour and mix together.
  4. Melt the chocolate and the butter in a small pot (or in the microwave), and mix-in with the rest of the mixture in the salad bowl.
  5. Better the two baking forms and flour the sides. Pour the mixture into the forms and add a square of dark chocolate into the middle of the mixture to have a more melted center.
  6. Couple of minutes before dessert time, bake the lava cakes 10 – 12 minutes at 200°.
  7. Delicately remove the lava cakes from the forms by turning them over onto a dessert plate.

They are absolutely delicious. You can win hearts with these incredibly decadent desserts- guaranteed!

Bon Appetit!
