spaghetti squash recipeFall is here and if you haven’t tried cooking with spaghetti squash then you’re missing out!  This recipe will let you enjoy a spaghetti meal without the dreaded pasta carbs:

Ingredients
1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 tablespoons sliced black olives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

DIRECTIONS

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

2.Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on the prepared baking sheet, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with only a little resistance. Remove squash from oven, and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.

3.Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic, and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook only until tomatoes are warm.

4.Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash, and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the sauteed vegetables, feta cheese, olives, and basil. Serve warm.

*This meal is wonderful paired with a Riesling wine.

knock off suede wedgesFall is here and suede is back.  Marvelous Girl chatted with Nancy leWinter, editorial direct of OneStopPlus.com about this year’s hot fall trends:

MG:  What types of shoes are on trend for fall?

NL:  Boots of every type are very important this fall.  Wedges give height and stability, and both wedges and booties are very flattering both under pants and with dresses and skirts when worn with tights.  The peep toe is a retro take that makes the look soft and sexy.  Tall boots are now for everyone because they’re available in wide and extra-wide calf widths and can be worn over leggings or under a great pencil skirt.  This season is also all about detail on footwear, from ruffles and ruching to studs and snaps.  And heels don’t have to be high to be high fashion with fabulous flats.
 
MG:  Why is suede a good fabric to use for fall?

NL:  Suede is softer than leather and molds to the foot…great over tights.  It also comes in the season’s best colors, but it is important to make sure suede is weatherized to avoid spotting.
 
MG:  Do you specifically take high-end designers collections into consideration when picking your inventory for the season?

NL:  Our selection is so large that we are able to provide a variety of trends, including the trends followed by high-end designers.  Most important, we recognize our customers want style and comfort, and that is a trend we can all love.

fall jewelry trendThis fall nothing will make you feel more glamorous than jewelry with deep, rich, autumn colors.  Combined with the ever-so sleek and chic emerald-cut stones, this trend is being called Russian Folkloric because it bridges the boho mix of casual color with the over-the-top sparkling luxury that will be the major look for holiday jewels.   Here are some of Marvelous Girl’s picks under $25.

1)  Smoky Quartz Ring from Chadwicks ($23.99)

2)  Sterling Silver Garnet Stud Earnings from Overstock ($24.99)

3)  Deco Style Black Stone Brooch at Bonanzle ($14.99)

Go Bold:  Deep cool colors (like amethyst, sapphire and emerald) and warm, burnt colors (such as amber and citrine) will really pop against your fall apparel.  But the trick is to make sure the stones are large and eye-catching.

fall headbands

The summer is almost over and this year’s autumn hair trend will have you diving head first into fall.  Whether it be flowers, lace, ribbon, beads or yarn, anything goes when it comes to hair accessories.  Here’s a few of Marvelous Girl’s picks (clockwise):

1)  Urban Outfitters Beaded Applique Headwrap ($24)

2)  Forever 21 Crepe Rose Headband ($3.80)

3)  Anthropologie Subtle Sprouts Headband ($28)

4)  ByLilla Zebra Leaf ($44)

They may seem kinda pricey at first glance, but it’s actually a cost-effective way to spice up your fall wardrobe and show your individual style.  And you can always get crafty and create your own headbands at home by recycling old buttons, fabric, bows, etc. – use your imagination!
