Life Lately

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




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.




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!




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).




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.




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!?




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.




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 🙂
