Ace at the Beach - Thanksgiving Recipe

Thanksgiving day is always full of delicious food, spending time with family, and traditions that have been passed down for years. In my family, we spend Thanksgiving all together and enjoy a relaxing day (usually full of a lot of football too!) 

I am here to highlight my favorite parts of thanksgiving and tell you how I like to celebrate Turkey day! 

Getting dressed up: I always use the excuse of Thanksgiving to wear a fun outfit! This year I decided to wear some cheetah print tights with a leather skirt and sweater! Perfectly cozy yet fun! I layered up lots of my favorite jewelry to complete my look. I am never fully dressed without my La Luna Rose jewels! 

Favorite foods: I am a dessert girl but as far as the dinner part I love green bean casserole, here’s my favorite recipe for it below! (From delish.com)

Delicious Vegetarian Thanks Giving Dish by Alden Easter

Ingredients: 

1 lb. green beans, trimmed

6 tbsp. butter, divided

1 onion, sliced into half moons

8 oz. sliced mushrooms

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 c. flour

3 c. whole milk

1 1/2 c. French's fried onions

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare an ice bath: In a large pot of boiling water, add green beans and cook until bright green, about 6 minutes. With a slotted spoon or tongs, quickly transfer green beans to ice bath to cool, then drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • In a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are golden, about 5 minutes more. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute, then transfer mixture to green bean bowl.
  • In same skillet over medium heat, melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Whisk in flour and cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, then add green bean mixture and toss until even combined.
  • Bake until warmed through and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
  • Top with fried onions and bake 5 minutes more. 

My favorite dessert is the pecan pie, my family always buys it from our favorite local bakery but you could easily get creative in the kitchen and make your own! 

Alden Easter Thanksgiving Vegetarian Recipe and Outfit

Traditions:

In my family a big tradition is going around in a circle and talking about what you’re thankful for. This is always fun to reflect on the good things in your life and also gives you a chance to look back on your year! It helps make the day joyful when you sit and talk about the things you’re thankful to have in life. 

One thing I am thankful for this year is being in good health and having friends who live near and far from me that I have the opportunity to go visit! 

Thanksgiving day is such a treat. It leaves you with full bellies and many memories that make you look forward to the holiday all year long!

No matter where you are, Thanksgiving can be a fun day to celebrate and a good time to bring your family together!  

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!  Love Ace x

RINGS

It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.

Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.

Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.

Feel free to email us at info@lalunarose.com if you have any further issues.

Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.

Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm

Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm

Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm

Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm

If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.

NECKLACES

All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all La Luna Rose necklaces are adjustable in length by 2" / 5cm.  All necklaces in our Essentials collection have a finer chain and are adjustable y 1"/2.5cm in length.

BRACELETS

Beaded Bracelets - La Luna Rose Sundown Sandy beaded bracelets are fastened with an adjustable clasp giving two size options for the 'average' wrist. One sits at a total circumference of approx 16cm and the other at 18.5cm. As all our pieces are individually hand-made, this may vary slightly. If you are concerned about your desired size, please feel free to email us & we can measure one up specifically for you in the design you will be ordering.

La Luna Rose Colour Creator Cuff Bracelets are also fastened with an adjustable clasp giving two size options for the 'average' wrist based on a wider design.

If you are concerned about your desired size, please feel free to email us & we can measure one up specifically for you. 

La Luna Rose Sideshow Sally Beaded Bracelets are constructed with a 'loop' system meaning that they do not open up completely but can be adjusted largely in size from a small wrist size measuring 14cm circumference to a larger wrist measuring 19cm circumference. To open them just pull at the end of the beaded section and to close them once on your wrist, pull the tassel heads gently. Again, if you are unsure please feel free to email us here & we can help you work out your size.

Solid Bracelets - Adults Our Solid bracelets are available in 3 sizes and measure 18cm in total circumference for a size SMALL, 19.8cm for a MEDIUM and 21cm for a LARGE.

If you are still unsure and would like something smaller/bigger made for you, send us an email here and we will see what we can create.

La Luna Rose chain bracelets fit much like the beaded bracelets with an adjustable clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 17cm, 18cm and 19cm.
