Earth Tones

For this outfit I was inspired by the colors of fall. I kept everything Earth toned, which isn't too common for me (I like colors). I found this vest in my closet and decided I would wear it with this outfit for some extra detail.
I have received so many compliments on this skirt, and I got it at.......Costco. Yes, Costco! Why not get some clothing while your getting your industrial size bag of granola and whatever other bulk food you buy.
I'm wearing the Light Brown Maxi Jasmine Hijab from Hijab-ista. To see my previous review of these hijabs CLICK HERE

Pumpkin Roll

      This cake is one of my absolute favorite treats for this time of year. The cream cheese frosting is delicious! I love that it's so simple to make, yet it looks really difficult.

For the Cake:
3/4 C. Pioneer Buttermilk Baking Mix
3 Eggs
1 C. Sugar
2/3 C. Canned Pumpkin
1 C. Chopped Pecans (optional)
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg

For the Filling:
Beat together-
1 C. Powdered Sugar
8 oz. Softened Cream Cheese
6 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
 Beat until smooth.

1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan. (if you don't have this you could use a cookie sheet with edges). Line the pan with greased wax paper.
2. Beat eggs and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the pumpkin. Stir in the dry ingredients.
3. Pour the batter into the pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with the pecans. Bake for 13-15 minutes.
4. Invert onto a clean kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar. Peel off the wax paper. Roll up cake and towel together from the short side. Place seam side down on a wire rack.
6. Unroll the cake and spread the filling evenly onto the cake. Re-roll the cake. Refridgerate until it is ready to serve. Place on a oblong platter and dust with powdered sugar. Slice with a sharp knife.

Makes 10 1" Slices

Euphoria "Maxi Polka Dot Skirt" Review sells a variety of scarves, kimonos, maxi skirts and maxi dresses; all of which are made in New York. The prices are great and so is the quality. Make sure to check out the website.
This Polka Dot Maxi Skirt from Euphoria is a mix or classic and modern. The polka dot pattern is so elegant and beautiful; it's one of my favorite patterns right now. This high waisted skirt has back hook closures and pockets in the front. My favorite part is the pleating in the front that adds extra character to the skirt. From the front it almost looks like palazzo pants due to the pleating. The navy background features beige polka dots (they aren't white), which matched my cardigan perfectly.
 I wanted to keep the look simple so I paired the skirt with a neutral color. I wore my Ahfif waterfall cardigan and wrapped it as my hijab, so it was both my cardigan and my hijab. I then secured it to my undercap with some hijab pins.
