Look and Feel Fabulous: Blanket Scarf Tutorial & Pumpkin Pie Muffin Recipe + Giveaway

Today's post is a very special one as it is my very first guest post, and it couldn't be a more perfect collab. A couple of months ago I came across a fab blog written and run by two lovely sisters Annie & Cat, and have been following Collective Passions since. Today they are sharing something they both love on my blog, and I'm sharing Thanksgiving-inspired makeup tips & tricks on their blog. If you are into blanket scarves and baking (or eating) delicious muffins, make sure to read on. Also, head over to Collective Passions to read Thanksgiving beauty special on their blog. Don't forget to enter an amazing giveaway at the end of this post. Good luck and read on!


Hey guys! It’s Catherine and Annie and we are so excited to be guest blogging for Miel & Mint. We are going to be sharing some fabulous tips on how to wear and style a blanket scarf, along with a pumpkin pie muffin recipe that is paleo, healthy and delicious so you can stay healthy and fit.
But first, about us: Collective Passions is where we blog about topics to help you get gorgeous, feel amazing, and be smart. We have all been given gifts, talents and passions to fulfill in this life. Our vision is to create a community where we can all share our passions and inspire each other to live a fulfilling, purposeful and happy life. 

How to wear and style a blanket scarf
I love the holidays; it’s that time of year where you can bundle up and put on a cute blanket scarf, break out your boots and cozy sweaters.
This Black Watch Blanket Scarf is my favorite because it can be worn so many ways. Think: draped over a swingy blouse with skinny jeans, paired with a flowing silk blouse, layered on top of a long sleeved shirt and vest, or even worn with a shift dress and cardigan.

This is my favorite way to style a blanket scarf:

Pumpkin Pie Muffin Recipe

This is also my favorite time of year to experiment with recipes and baking is my specialty. I love finding quick, easy and healthy recipes like pumpkin pie muffins. This way I can indulge in my holiday baking but still fuel my body with nutrition and feel energized.
Pumpkin Pie Muffins

¾ cups of Pumpkin Puree
4 eggs
2 egg whites
¼ cup of honey*
½ cup of coconut oil*
½ cup of coconut flour
½ tsp. of baking powder
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. of Walnuts
*Make sure to heat up in the microwave for one minute

                                                                                              Adapted from Popsugar

1.      Preheat your oven to 400 degrees while preparing all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl (coconut flour, spices, baking powder) and mix
2.       Add the wet ingredients (pumpkin, vanilla extract, honey, coconut oil, eggs) and mix for 3-5 minutes
3.       Scoop mixture into a muffin pan (I sprayed mine with coconut oil) and add your crumbled walnuts on top
4.       Bake for 18-20 minutes (make sure to rotate pan in between)
5.       Serve and enjoy!
