Thanksgiving treats

Thanksgiving weekend is great. You get a few days off of work/school, there’s Black Friday sales, you have a lot of leftover food, and you get to see friends and family. If you’re going to a Thanksgiving party, having friends/family over, or just want to do something over the long weekend, here are some easy and fun treats.

Mini Peach Raspberry Pies

Pies are a very popular this time of year, but here is something quick, and since they are mini pies, they might take a little more time, but it is worth it. Most of the ingredients needed are ones you should probably already have at home (flour, sugar, eggs, milk butter), but here are the ones you might need to run to the grocery store for:

-Peaches, diced
-Raspberries
-Prepared pie crust

Rice Krispie Pumpkin Pie

Since pies have always been a popular Thanksgiving treat, here is a twist on the classic pumpkin pie. This is a perfect idea if you’re short on time, as this recipe calls for easy to get ingredients. Again, most of these ingredients you probably have at home (butter, vanilla extract) but here are the ones you might need to stop and get:

-Rice Krispie Cereal
-Marshmallows
-Orange food coloring
-Pumpkin pie spice

Fruit Cornucopias

Here is one of the healthiest (in comparison to the other two I had above), and easiest recipes yet. It involves one key ingredient: waffle ice cream cones. Dice up fruit of your choice, place a small piece of parchment paper inside the cone so it doesn’t get soggy and serve!

Hopefully these have inspired you to make something fun and festive with your family and friends! If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you have a good one! 🙂

BTS fashion

BTS is probably my favorite music group right now, and I’ve noticed that pretty much whatever they do they dress up (nicely) in some sort of way. I love their style so much, honestly, that I believe they are fashion icons. They don’t pay attention to masculine or feminine standards of clothing; BTS wears whatever suits them, and it is so great to see them wearing things you don’t often see men wearing. For one of their most popular photo shoots (for their album Wings), they wore a lot of colors, patterns, and textures of clothing. An example is of the member Suga, he was wearing a silk pink suit with a knit white sweater, which you could say is not the most masculine, and I think that is important. It’s not just photo shoots where their clothes stand out, because that’s somewhat expected to wear something unusual and different, but they are seen out in public wearing things like this as well.

Another thing they do, that is pretty uncommon in fashion, is the fact that they dye their hair very often. They don’t just dye their hair blonde or brown, but colors ranging from orange to mint green and so on. I think it’s really cool seeing them not only with their outfits, but the fact that they dye their hair and then style their outfits to go with their hair color. This is just truely iconic.

BTS have a great fashion sense, and that’s why I love them. I love the fact that they go to the airport, and instead of wearing comfortable casual clothing, they dress up! BTS member Jin actually wore a suit in the airport, which I mean is pretty common for people in business, but they all dressed up like that, (not in a suit but layers and such with accessories). They can just be out in public and they wear basically the same things you would see them wear in photo shoots.
