Parties. Gotta love them. Birthday Parties? Even better! Except when i do think of 'Birthday Parties' i have immediate flashbacks to the innocent childhood days of pass-the parcel, fairy bread and pin the tail on the donkey. Alas, there is little opportunities to plan 'Birthday Parties' with an adult twist. Right?? WRONG!
I recently came across this 'Drool-Worthy' recipe for...wait for it....BIRTHDAY CAKE SHOTS! Rosie from sweetapolita.com has come up with this creative and ohhh soo fun way of mixing childhood memories with adult indulgences-a birthday cake shot-pure genius! I definitely cannot wait to try this one!
1 ounce cake flavoured vodka (e.g. Pinnacle or Three Olives)
1 teaspoon dry white cake mix
1/2 ounce whipped cream flavoured vodka (e.g. Pinnacle) or chocolate liqueur
1/2 ounce half & half (10.5-18% fat cream)
whipped cream (for topping)
sprinkles (for topping)
Shake all ingredients in a martini shaker with ice and strain into sprinkle-rimmed (optional) shooter or shot glass and top with whipped cream and more sprinkles.
For more info on this recipe and more amazingly scrumptious recipes head to sweetapolita.com! Trust me, your taste buds will LOVE u!

My Current Obession: Printed pants. A perfect way to brighten up any outfit! Not a fan of florals? Opt for a geometric print!...Perhaps that's not your style? How about a sexy meets edgy animal print version? Whatever the print, whatever your style! I am yet to get my hands on one of these stunning pieces, as sadly, the ones i always seem to lust over are over $300. But enough of my current dilemma, printed pants are the way to go and is a look that can be perfectly styled into any wardrobe of any season!
So what are you waiting for?? Get those credit cards ready and Happy shopping :)
Yep you heard right! UK nail-polish brand Ciate has just announced the up-comming release of their 'Caviar' Nail polish range! Hmmm it seems the 3D craze has now entered our beauty cupboards and i am LOVING it! A quirky concept mixed with true sophistication and style, Caviar Manicures are definitely the nail polish of the future! The nail polish will be available in 3 colours as shown below-personally i am loving the multi-coloured version (most probably because it reminds me of the fairy bread i so favourably consumed as a child!).
Not sure when this awesome polish range will be available overseas but my sources tell me that very soon Sephora stores and Sephora.com will be stocking Ciate's Caviar Manicure. So stay tuned my lovelies! And if any of you are lucky to get your hand on a manicure kit, be sure to let us at Elii Dee know how it looks!

There's something mystical about dream catchers. Its organic shape. The feathers, the twill cobweb circles...I could stare at one for hours. Just laying down on my bed, head up to the ceiling as i gaze at the twirling dream catcher above me-dancing with the breeze from my open window-as if to be celebrating some old, native tradition. Perhaps the movement is from all the dreams it has caught-ready to burst into a million stories and crazy tales. It is all quite mystical...
There's nothing like those relaxing Sunday mornings. Waking up late, knowing there is no need to rush. No need to fret about the day's activities. Taking your time. Being carefree. And for once (finally) in the week laze around in your pj's with not a care in the world.
I <3 Sunday's. And clearly Sunday's <3 me too.
