Christmas_Reindeer_Cupcakes

My attempt at making some adorable Reindeer cupcakes I saw on Pinterest.

 

 

Crazy_Style_Love_in_Bella_Magazine

So honored to be featured in the December issue of the fabulous Bella Magazine!  If you haven’t already, you really need to check out this great online publication.

 

 

Pantone_Universe_Paints_at_Lowes

Seeing these Pantone paint color chips at Lowes made my heart race for two reasons: 1. I was so excited (although it’s kind of sad that I can get so excited over paint chips), and 2. I was terrified that the Lowe’s staff were going to yell at me for taking one of each colour!

 

 

Michael_Kors_Gold_and_Pink_Oversided_Watch

Another heart racing moment. . . when I saw this gorgeous pink and gold Michael Kors watch at the Watch It! Spring preview.  Don’t worry ladies, this beauty will be available very soon (in January or February I think).

 

 

Butterfly_Tree_Decor_at_Hudson's_Bay

A third heart fluttering moment. . . seeing this gorgeous butterfly tree on display at Hudson’s Bay.  I think I need to DIY this for my apartment.

 

 

Bye_Bye_Jeep

I said good-bye to my partner on the road of 12 years last month.  I’m not going to lie, I may have shed a tear or two.  But, those tears quickly dried up once I sat in my new car.  We’ve been joking that we’ve entered a new decade of car ownership.  The little luxuries that people have been living with for years are brand new to us.  Oh how did I ever survive without heated seats!?

 

 

Lazy_Days_in_Bed

The last several weeks have been very stressful, so most of our weekend mornings have been spent in bed, relaxing, reading magazines and watching movies.

 

 

More_Cupcakes

Another stress buster. . . eating lots of cupcakes.

    I love your snap shots. =)
    That pink face Michael Kors watch is fabulous! It seems like a match made for you!! =D
    Also I can relate to your emotions to saying bye to your car. It’s been with you for so long! It might seem trivial but it was such a big part of your life and obviously it was a reliable car!
    Have a great holiday!

    Congrats Jenny on the feature!! Just curious, what kind new ride you decide on? Even though it’s not very cold in Southern CA, I do love my heated seats. I know that it’s a must for my next car.

    If I don’t talk to you, have a Merry Christmas!

    I love that you attempted (and succeeded) at making those reindeer cupcakes. I pinned those a while ago, but didn’t have any reason to make them. I did make some peanut butter and chocolate brownies for a holiday party that were out of this world.

    Hope you’re enjoying the holidays 🙂
