Uno Giorno Dolce Elegante- One Stylish Sweet Day 

Spring couldn’t get any sweeter here in Rhode Island with this long awaited sunshiny weather. 

I thought I’d share some equally sweet stylish deals and one of my favorite, most simple desserts in case you were craving a bit of easy indulgence today. 

This is another Cache brand dress I found at http://www.thredUP.com and I paired it with the Aimee statement necklace from http://www.facebook.com/luluavenueAlana. Yes, it’s the necklace I wear all the time. I really love it. The bracelets were $1.00 each at Joe’s Place on Atwood Avenue in Cranston, RI. ( Facebook – Joesplace) 



I added this little short sleeve cardi from http://www.burlingtoncoatfactory.com to make the outfit appropriate for work. I found it recently in the junior department and they had every color imaginable for less than $10.00 each. 

My shoes are Isaac Mizrahi New York and just like the dress, found at thredUP. The bag was less than $40.00 at http://www.marshalls.com.  

I do have a bit of a sweet tooth , and often like to use sugary , candy scented bath products as a non- caloric indulgence. 

Rinse Bath and Body chocolate soaps, Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Sugar Scrub, and Philosophy French Vanila bubble bath are a few of my favorite go-tos and also make great gifts. 

However , sometimes you need the real thing , the real decadent goodness of a rich, almost too good to be true, dessert. 

My suggestion would be not to wait until after dinner. 

And here is is –

Gelato Affogato 

All you need is 1 pint of premium quality vanilla ice-cream and 4 shots of hot espresso, unsweetened. 

Chill your glass or bowl and make sure your ice-cream is extremely cold. Mold it into a 2 oz. scoop that will hold up to the heat of the espresso. 

Carefully pour the espresso over the ice-cream , essentially “drowning” the ice-cream.

It’s as easy as that, and it’s great to add caramel sauce, nuts, or chocolate chips too if you desire. 


I can’t post this without saying that my mom would never , ever serve this without an abundance of homemade cookies. 


Hope you have a day full of sweetness ! 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Your time and attention is greatly appreciated!

Yours truly,

Jennifer
