New Tattoo!

I woke up to a couple inches of snow on the ground this morning but that didn't stop me from getting this done:

I am so in love with it and it looks way better than I could have ever imagined.

Boy Du Jour

Since Bust magazine does their feature, Boy Du Jour, and talks about the guys they are currently crushing is my current crush. Fred Armisen is not only cute and funny but he has an amazing pair of glasses.

The Wonder Woman Collection for MAC

The new Wonder Woman collection from MAC is pretty much a dream come true. I'm kind of surprised no one has thought of it sooner. Why wouldn't I want all my makeup to have a Wonder Woman logo on it?! 

I stopped by the MAC counter yesterday and was in awe of the cute setup surrounding this collection...a cute Wonder Woman makeup chair, a backdrop with classic Wonder Woman comics, and of course the makeup itself. I really loved the eyeshadow palette with the pinks and purples but settled for my standby Russian Red lipstick in a fancy new Wonder Woman tube. I just couldn't help myself.

The Melting Pot

I LOVE the Melting Pot! Even if I feel stuffed and gross afterward, I still love eating there. Mark took me there for Valentines Day and it was the perfect opportunity to wear my gift from him, my Heartlette Crown from Giant Dwarf. Something tells me a lot of ladies were wearing it this Valentines Day...its just too perfect and I got compliments on it all day long.

He really is the best husband and I am so lucky to have him!
I hope everyone had a great Valentines Day! <3

Dinner Party Success!

Since my friends and I have no interest in the Super Bowl, I decided to throw a small birthday dinner party for my friend Adam. I don't get to do stuff that this often so I wanted to go all out and make an Italian inspired dinner. I went with a vegetable lasagna (first time making lasagna), garlic bread, salad, and of course some cupcakes for dessert. It all turned out really well and I was so proud of myself!

Interested in the recipe for vegetable lasagna? Check it out here!

Toes That Twinkle

My work has been reviewed on the Toes That Twinkle blog!

Please read the post and let me know what you think!


So Pantone has named Honeysuckle the color of the year. Yes, I pay attention to these things....

I must say I liked last years choice of Turquoise much better,. but thats just me.

Heres more about the chosen color:

A Color for All Seasons
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.

It's Official!

This is such a huge deal for me and I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. Being at this festival means so many things to me. I get to see friends and family, visit a place I haven't been to in years, and of course gain more exposure for my handmade things. These next 2 months are gonna be crazy busy for me with prepping for the show and not to mention sales on my etsy, Flamingo Cupcake Studios, have been better than ever!

A Fun Felt Project

I found these adorable little flowers with buttons in the center done in my favorite colors. They almost look like they are stitched together. I knew I needed to make something with them and I came up with this cute necklace idea layering felt of matching colors. I love it so much and it really resembles my bouquet I made for my wedding day.
