Welcome to Truffles & Tassels!

My name is Ilona Shabovta & I am a 20-something living in the busy NJ/NYC Area. I was born in Russia and came to the USA when I was 3 years old. After that I grew up in Syracuse, NY and spent a large amount of time in North Carolina too. I moved to New Jersey in my early 20s and I don’t plan on moving away from this area again. Being back in the North East brings back many wonderful memories and truly feels like home.

Truffles & Tassels is a food and fashion-focused lifestyle blog where you can find all sorts of wonderful finds on beauty products, clothes on a budget, fun food adventures, travel advice/tips, and ideas for decorating.

I have a continuing love affair with wine and food and I have no shame admitting that. Cooking and create new recipes is one of my many passions. It really soothes me in times of stress. I strive to make all my recipes easy because I believe everyone should be able to cook.  My list of places to try in NYC is constantly growing and I love sharing all of it with you. I have always been a bit of nomad, wanting to travel the world. Several countries have already been marked off but there is so much more I have yet to see.

My fashion inspiration comes from timeless fashion icons and classic pieces that have been re-invented into something new. I would say my style is a little girly, laid-back, must be comfortable, and fashion forward. I hope you get inspired by my blog and enjoy reading it daily!
