DIY : Deep Fried Oreos

This is sin. Bad for my body, good for the soul. Why can't these be healthy?

Ingredients :
2 quarts Vegetable OIl for frying
1 Large Egg
1 Cup of Milk
2 Teaspoons of Vegetable Oil (mixed with the eggs in photo below)
1 cup of Pancake Mix
1 Package of Double Stuff Oreo Cookies

Need I say, this was the best dessert I've ever made. Super easy to make and reeaaaalllly good!

1. Heat 2 quarts of oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F.
2. Mix together egg, milk, and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a bowl.
3. Carefully add in the pancake mix until smooth with no lumps.

4. Coat cookies in pancake mix.

5. Place cookie into the fryer and cook until golden brown approximately 1.5 - 2 minutes.
6. Remove cookie and place on a paper towels to drain excess oil.
Served warm by itself, with powdered, or ice cream!
PS. I also used the Birthday Oreo Cookie to the right

Enjoy! Happy DIY Friday!

Shoes | Jeffrey Campbell Tardies

Trying something new and posting Inspired Looks every Wednesday! Today's looked is inspired by the one and only Daria. For those that are unfamiliar with Daria, please get familiar. Daria was a MTV Cartoon of a monotoned, dry humored girl trying to survive high school and deal with her everyday people. Although I was very young when this show came out, and some of the content didn't relate to me, I still loved this show. I think it's one of my all-time favorite shows.

The weather is changing and becoming a lot cooler, which I love! Today was the first day in months that I was able to wear some type of outerwear! Picked this jacket up from a thrift store a few years back and just loved the faded light olive color. Daria has a more deeper, richer green jacket but again, this look was inspired not replicated. I also decided to use my leather skirt instead of a plain cotton skirt to add some texture. I finished the outfit with my maroon Tardies, and yes Daria wears high cut black combats, but I felt these went well with the color scheme I had going on.

I had fun doing my first inspired ootd, and cant wait to do more! & as an update, I'm so going to be Quinn, Daria's sister, for Halloween. I'm slightly convinced that Daria and Quinn are a lot like my sister and I. Tiara being Daria and Quinn being myself. (:
