Mini Easter Cake

Phewwwww-weeeee!!! It's been a while...lets just say ALL of March was a bit stressful and I was just not in the mood to sit and think and blog. But it's all good now and I am back with some Easter yumminess. What perfect way to torture myself when I have given up all sweets for lent, right?! (4 more days and I am sooo binging on my babes homemade donuts.) But for now, at least my guy gets to enjoy this delicious mini layered x3 german chocolate cake, sprinkled with coconut and topped with cute little chocolate eggs. Oh it did smell so very good and I heard it taste good too.

Obviously I was not into making (or taking good pictures of) Easter treats like I was last year when I made THESE. Having given up on sweets was a bit of a "lets get creative" downer.

Chairish Love!

Hello lovelies! I just recently downloaded the Chairish app and I am HOOKED!! Not a good thing. But I can't help it, it's soooo good. Chairish the one-stop shop to buy, sell, and adore pre-loved decor. You can literally purchase from your phone and even try to bargain a better deal or if you are ready to part with some lovely furniture, this is your place.

I played around with some of the items available and created a couple of mood boards. I've got sweet girl rooms on my mind (hello sister, please let me decorate Nikki's bedroom in the future!!) It was so much fun browsing the site and combining items to create some pretty cool spaces. Talk about some Eclectic love!

Valentine's Day Mini Cakes

Happy weekend loves. It's getting very close to that day…the day of love, friendship, and lots of moochness. We usually don't like to go out on Valentines day. The crowds just really irritate us so we stay home and stuff our faces with chocolate and cuddle with our love pugs. It is, however, always a good excuse to get a little creative and make cute stuff. Like mini cakes. Cakes with hearts and flowers and sprinkles. So last weekend, while the booooring Super Bowl was on, I made these adorable cakes using THIS mini pan from Michael's. These make a darling little gift for a special someone. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to shape a heart of sprinkles and used fuzzy sticks (pipe cleaners) to create little hearts on a stick. Loooove me some fuzzy sticks. The creations are endless with these fuzzies. I also grabbed some flowers for a more romantic feel. Who doesn't love flowers and chocolate, right?

So if you can't decide what to get that special love or dear friend, here you go. From the heart.

Kourt's House

FINALLY we get to see cute little Kourtney Kardashian's house in detail rather than just in the background on the show. I have always loved her unique style so I am not surprised at all to see her beautiful home match her quirky yet glamourous style. Kourtney collaborated with the amazing Jeff Andrews to create the gorgeous interiors. Ah, except Penelope's nursery...that is ALL Kourtney. I see design in her future, or perhaps a DASH home store? Check out InStyle for more of her home. Don't you all need that neon "love me" sign? I love it!

Yoga, stretching, and flexibility.

Hello loves!! Happy weekend and Happy New Year. Hope everyone's new year if off to a beautiful start and everyone is keeping up with their new year's resolutions (2 weeks later). I am never one to make exercising a new year resolution, have actually never needed to since I have always exercised consistently. But after a knee and shoulder injury last year, I had to put it all on hold, even my dearest yoga. I had set my self goals last year of poses and inversions I wanted to achieve in yoga. Flexibility was and still is my main goal. Stretching and being flexible not only benefits overall health and vitality, it decreases stress while increasing blood flow, improves posture, improves your body's range of motion, increases relaxation and rejuvenation of mind and body. I mean, the list goes on and on. So with the increase in flexibility, why not get into some crazy poses and inversions right? So this year, I am back to it. Yoga + me = hot loving painful time with my mat...ooh-la-la. My knee still doesn't feel 100% so that means I have to start slow, being carful not to re-injure it. But I am dead set on this goal...new years resolution...or whatever you want to call it. So far I am half way up to a head stand and my toes can almost (or not) touch my head in the king pigeon pose. Will keep practicing, but until I can post some pictures of myself in yoga poses and inversions, here you go, some inspiration to get you all motivated to get stretching, stronger, and healthier. Namaste!
