Here are a few of my favorite reads from the blogosphere.
An inspiring post to be present, stop making excuses, and make a difference.
Everyone is juicing, here is a recipe that seemed easy enough for a beginner. I need to invest in a juicer.
Great bit of motivation and inspiration
I love these gorgeous hand illustrated plates.
Happy Sunday, be kind to others.
Today Amelia is 5 months old! Time has flown, and half a year will have passed soon! I’ve been craving sweets and curious about what is actually in red velvet cupcakes. After looking at a recipe, turned out I had everything on hand, except red food coloring. Luckily I had hot pink food coloring, so I made pink velvet cupcakes.
Amelia loved watching the mixer, and I managed to get powdered sugar everywhere.
I also managed to double line every other cupcake. I have no idea what was going on there. Lol.
I think they turned out pretty awesome (I only had 5 for dinner). It was my first time making a cream cheese frosting. I used Paula Dean’s recipe, I tweeted the link or find it here.
I love to go thrifting, but hardly ever get a chance to go. But hopefully soon I’ll take a mom’s day off and look for the ever elusive Dolly Parton coffee mug and the ultimate cat shirt. Here are few things I’m also on the hunt for:
A kid friendly coffee table. Ours rotates and could be dangerous for an exploring Amelia.
Apparently overalls are in for summer, but I’d rater skip the $80 price tag and find a pair that I won’t mind getting rid of when this trend fades away again.
I’m also on the look out for some high waisted shorts or jeans that can be cut into shorts. As a mom, high waisted is better.
What is your thrifting mission?
Although its a little late, here are my favorite reads from around the blogosphere.
My favorite new iPhone photography app
If I lived in Marfa I would sneak into all the beautiful weddings.
I love how positive and inspiring Kelly Rae Roberts is, and the fact that she’s not afraid to share her journey.
I’m sure we will be needing some Tangled Tantrums in the near future.
I recently visited Cactus Alley where lots of fun businesses have moved in. Walking around the courtyard, Magen from Fragrance of Heaven invited me and my friends into her shop. I am a candle addict, and recently a scensy addict. I love it when my house smells yummy and brings the scents of the season inside.
Magen explained that Fragrance of Heaven is not only a company, but a ministry and house of prayer. Each item in their shop is blessed and prayed over, and a scripture is placed on each item.
They use a paraffin blend wax to give each candle a long burn and great scent. They also have a DIY pour station where you can create your own scents and pour your own candles.
I bought four of the wax blocks to use in my scentsy warmers. So far I’ve tried the Mommy Time scent, and the Leather (which my husband loved). In my opinion they smell better than any other brands I’ve tried, and at a great price!
