Weekly Wrap Up

Ah Friday, you have finally made it.

Isn’t strange how your first week back from vacation is either insanely fast or incredibly slow.  This week has been the latter for me. Monday felt like Wednesday, and that’s never a good sign.

Sorry I missed last week, but as mentioned I was away working at a camp, there wasn’t a lot of Instagraming happening.

However, this week I’m taking you all the way back to two weekends ago, to get all caught up!

My first ever Smash pages!  I love Smashing so much (have you picked up a Smashbook yet?)

I thought these cupcakes looked so pretty in the morning sunshine, Strawberry Lime, not my best work but reasonably good.

Cinnamon pancakes!  I shared the recipe here.

My roommate and I went out to a tea shoppe that makes food that is all made with tea.  I got pulled pork sliders, yummy!

I tried to “competition” at a Food Truck party, not to have an ego or anything, but I win.

Camp cupcakes!  Malted Chocolate, Spicy Mango, and Orange.  They were all gone on Friday afternoon 🙂

After I got back donuts sounded amazing.  So that’s what the roomie and I did, they were delicious!

We had an insane downpour here in Denver on Saturday.  I just waited it out in my car while waiting for my friend to show.  We got new ear piercings :))

Banana nut bundt anyone?

It’s pretty much a miracle that my full sized cake came out, but it did, and it was gorgeous!

This picture is not as exciting as it looks.  Hooray Casa Bonita!

A lovely day in the park listening to some free music.  I love trumpet players (there was one that was potentially attractive).

My lovely hair pins from Petunia Blooms.  I love them!  (You can also see the new piercing :))

And last but not least, I died a piece of my hair blue.  Finished pictures when I have a finished hair do!

Have a lovely weekend!




Weekly Wrap Up

Happy Friday lovelies!

I hope you had a fabulous week, as always!

This was my first full week in my new place and it is almost totally decorated!  My roommate and I have been having so much fun arranging things and making things for our walls and staying up really late talking.  It’s a ton of fun!

We’ve been not only holed up in our apartment, we’ve been exploring our neighborhood as well and we are in love.  It’s so wonderful (and they really like fireworks!)

This is my favorite wall!  My thrifted retro ball cart and a fabulous starburst mirror.  It’s like going to the seventies!

My roomie and I hung up a bunch of embroidery circles (she loves sewing, I love cupcakes).  It’s the easiest, cheapest project and it’s SO cute!

Told you my neighborhood loves fireworks.  We had a block party and at the end of it there were fireworks, great fun!

Isn’t this stop sign awesome?  It’s yellow and is trying to keep you safe!

Strawberry lemonade cupcakes anyone?  Recipe coming soon!

My cute little German girl hairstyle.  Gotta love the braids (I’m a shoe in for a remake of The Sound of Music).

Exciting things are happening here, raspberries, maple syrup, water.

Turned into raspberry syrup and mixed with sparkling water.  Raspberry soda!  Amazing (it was missing a touch of vodka ;)).

So there you have it, a reasonable slow week (only 8 pictures this week, not the usual 15).



Whimsical Wednesday-week 3

Another week and more beautiful ideas to share with you!

There is so much to love!  I thought about picking a theme but I was inspired by hair, cupcakes and tutorials this week so I decided to just leave it as a grab bag.

Here goes nothing!

The plan is to attempt to do this for my birthday part y hair.  We’ll see if it turns out or not 🙂

These drawer shelves are amazing!  Now if only I could get my hands on some vintage drawers (and not a whole dresser…)

Yum!  Fudgesicles, too many calories?  I think not, these are just coconut milk, cocoa and bananas.  Yum!

I found the blog Sincerly, Kinsey this week and fell in love.  I want to try all of her projects but especially the above (how cute is that!) and the two below (I already ordered tiny glass jars 🙂



How cute are these!  They definitely inspired me to throw a mustache themed welcome home party!

I’m hoping to get a tattoo within the next month or two.  I really like this placement.

And I’ve always wanted one on my foot 🙂

Look at how cute this braid is!  I love the pink hue (although I’m more of a blue/purple girl myself).  Some colored tips may be in my future (even if it’s just a tint I don’t think I could do whole head.)

There you have it!

Welcome to the wonderful, spazy world of my brain.  I wish I could do everything all at once.  Hopefully I’ll get some of those crafts completed and show off the results to you!

Have a wonderful week.



Whimsical Wednesday-Week 1

I love May.  May is a good month.  It’s spring time and it’s beautiful.  The flowers are blooming and there is just so much joy…plus it’s my birthday month!  Which makes it all even better!

Here are a few things that caught my eye this week.

This double bun is adorable, and so easy!  For a tutorial click here.

I also love this crossed fishtail.  I’m working on figuring it out for you…maybe there’s a tutorial in the future 🙂

I’m gathering the necessary items to make this “hair necklace.”  You can find the tutorial here.



This little mini bundts were so adorable that they inspired me to order my own mini bundt pan.  I’m so excited and I don’t think I can wait until next week for it to come…but I guess I have no choice!  It’s going to be a whole new world of baking and I can’t wait to tackle it!

Well, there you have it, hair and baking, two of my favorite things.  There wasn’t a ton that caught my attention this week, but these few things are enough to totally inspire me.

I also find myself inspired by some of the most random things.  The realization that April 30 was “Oatmeal Cookie Day” got my mind reeling, developing an Oatmeal Cream Pie Cupcake (recipe to come).  It’s more than just pictures that inspire me, it’s real life!  The little details can be huge sources of inspiration, so pay attention~
