The Nutella Fudge & Marshmallow Cake Recipe

Hi guys
 I want to share a very simple and delish recipe to try at home, specially for those who are Nutella obsessed and also for the ones who love melted and crunchy marshmallows.

For this cake, I must admit that I didn't follow any recipe or picture, I was just inspired to give a birthday cake to my sister in law. I bought from the grocery store the following items:

- Eggs
- Coconut Oil
- The chocolate fudge cake mix from Betty Crocker
- Nutella
- Mini marshmallows
- Chocolate Chips
- 1 Kinder Bueno,
- 1 Twix unwrapped bites and
- 1 bag of Reese's

After having all these ingredients:
The first thing was to put all the cake mix into a bowl, then you add the eggs,
to this cake I added just two, it all depends on how big the cake will be and then you add a cup and 1/4 of water. I decided to add a cup of chocolate chips to make it thicker and sweeter than usual.

Next step is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees

After you have all  the cake already mixed, you just need to put the plain cake inside the oven for 35 minutes don't let it to much time, because you want it to be soft and chunky.

A big recommendation is to let your cake rest and cool for 20 minutes then you can start the decor.

How to decorate?
1. Nutella is going to be your most important topping here, it will let the marshmallows to remain in the cake. So you will fill all the cake with the Nutella, you can grab a knife to do this and just fill every spot.
2. Put all the marshmallows on top, this requires a lot of patience, do it step by step, marshmallow by marshmallow, if you want your cake in a very professional way.
3. You will need to put the cake again inside the oven to melt and crunch the marshmallows, but only for 3 minutes. It's essential to keep an eye to the oven for those 3 minutes, sometimes they melt in 2, so you need to be very careful. This step will determine all the success for your cake.
4. Lastly, you will smash the Kinder Bueno chocolate for the filling in the middle, after that,  you will add on top the Twix bites and the Reese's (the quantity is optional).

Wish you all the best doing your cake!
Have fun

The perfect gift for V-day with Sugarfina

Hi lovelies! Today, I want to share with all of you my crush for Sugarfina sweets, I want to clarify that this it's not an sponsored post.

Just for V-day I thought that this topic was the most appropriate to post about, starting with the girly feeling that you get when you receive a pretty box like this and also if you are the one who seeks for the perfect gift this is the most convenient one to get for this day! Specially for this week, Sugarfina is having special arrangements where you are able to create your own candy bento, this one comes in different sizes you are the one who picks which one is your favorite, who are you giving and obviously your budget. It starts with 2 little boxes and the maximum I believe are 8.

I love this type of gifts because you can purchase them for every kind of girl, if its a friend, your mom, even your boss and obviously for couples it's the most perfect gift. I must say that  they have the most incredible flavors on gummies, I love the chocolate almonds and also the champagne rose. The last thing to say is that you don't need to worry about the packaging because they come all wrapped so this is a total bonus, the price starts from $11.00 CAD dollars which is the little box, but you obviously can mixed them depending on what you are looking for. 

Wish you all a very Happy Valentines Day!

Is It Spring Already?


I can't wait for spring season! Today I was dressed for attending a brunch so this pastel look was more than on point. I decided to dressed up with an almost all white everything look which is one of my favorites, but for this time I decided to match it with blues. I love to play and match with different colors over my coats, so I decided to wear this lovely Pastel Blue Coat from Shein, they are having so much options in every color which is kind of amazing and rarely seen in a lot of brands, This coat can also be paired in so much ways, casually with a jean and leather boots for example and with black or grey if you want to add a winter touch kind of look.

Personally, I think that an all black total outfit is very elegant, but for this time of the year is important to start getting ready of wearing bright and pastel colors, so please wear colors and play with them! They embrace your aura.

Hope you girls like it as much as I do!
Thanks for reading,

Daydreaming in the Cypress Mountains

Rise & Shine Everyone!

I still have no words to describe this paradise! I had always thought that whenever I was going to visit a place like this I was going to freeze to death, and that was basically my reason for not going on this type of trip before. I'm so surprised because it was not cold at all! Yes, I was covered with a thousand layers of clothes under my winter coat and I think that was what allowed me to successfully be up there and feel very comfortable. I opt for leather boots, which was also a good thing since it prevented having frozen feet. Leather is my favorite in this type of weather, so all cheers and positive things happened, besides that it was snowing too!! It was truly magical. 

Thanks for reading!
