Break at the cafe for refreshments.
New short hair!
Lots of bounce!
It was hot in California... over 100 degrees! I was sweating!

So here we are with another chocolate and caramel dessert to share with friends and send off to work. Did I mention that Ashley came home, stayed for about 1 hour and left because she had friends waiting soooo, of course, I called with bribery of freshly baked cookies for her to come and pick up whenever. I can see this bribery thing is my next new skill set. Hopefully Ashley is not reading this but if you are kiddo, just kidding! LOVE YOUUUU....!
Oh yes, cookies. Here is the recipe and may I say YUM!!! in advance. While Ash was here, she unwrapped all the Rolos for me.
Caramel-filled Chocolate Cookies With White Chocolate Drizzle
These yummy chocolate cookies have a tasty caramel surprise inside. With crushed pecans on top and a contrasting white chocolate drizzle, They are almost to pretty to be eaten but it can be done.
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. plus 1 Tablespoon sugar, divided
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. baking cocoa
1 t. baking soda
1 1/4 c. chopped pecans, divided
1 package (13 oz.) Rolo candies
4 squares (1 oz. each) white baking chocolate, melted
In a mixing bowl, cream butter, 1 cup sugar and brown sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking soda; gradually add to the creamed mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in 1/2 c. pecans.
Shape a tablespoonful of dough around each candy, forming a ball. In a small bowl, combine the remaining sugar and pecans; dip each cookie halfway. Place nut side up 2-inches apart on greased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees F. for 7-10 minutes or until tops are slightly cracked. Cool for 3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle with melted white chocolate.
This recipe should make about 3 dozen cookies =D

Amelie @ CoverModels Management (Ottawa)
It's already very soon October. The days are shorter, no sunny sky and a cold atmosphere.Well, the winter is in front of our doors. He brought us some promising new faces, like, Amelie. Amelie is the newest discovery of our Canadian boutique agency, CoverModels Management. After only 24 hours signed the beauty already a contract with Giovanni Models in Montreal and Toronto.From the first seconds is my impression of her huge. She has the certainly special look without any doubt. Amelie has an impressive facial expression, very fresh and playful with a touch of cuteness and a touch of uniqueness. A pale skin, two piercing eyes and a well formed face. The young canadian beauty is 16 years old and has a height of simply perfect 177 centimeters (82-60-86). Take a look at her promising two single polaroids and write Amelie's name down.
As we kissed our summer goodbye, Brazil is entering the spring season and we have some new photos by Ddio featuring Luis Paulo [L’Equipe Agence] The premises of another fantastic summer season by our favorite Brazilian photographer.

New Yorkers for Children, arguably the most beloved charity of Park Avenue’s enthroned princesses, celebrated their tenth annual autumnal fundraiser at Cipriani 42nd Street. To mark the special occasion, Gloria Vanderbilt’s son Anderson Cooper acted as M.C. at the “Make It Happen”-themed affair, which featured the musical guestmanship of Ne-Yo and the support of Tinsley Mortimer, Wendi Murdoch, and Tory Burch. The children’s charity raised nearly $1.5 million that evening.
